Patch X.19.0 - November Update and Shop Revamp

Hey everyone, Krathan here again to deliver some news!

Before I get to the patch notes, there is something we want to address. As you are probably well aware, our recent chest events have had some serious hiccups and rightfully caused a lot of frustration - for us as well.

Along with all the other fixes we have going live, the kinks with the new system should finally be ironed out now. We didn't want to extend the duration of the event while it was still acting up, but decided to run an Undead Lair event next weekend to confirm everything is functioning properly and stress-test the feature. More info on that soon.

Now, let's get to it! This time around we have a small-ish patch which mostly focuses on polish and fixes, while we're preparing for a bigger patch some time soon to kick off the winter season.

End of Halloween Events

  • The Fall Nexus is back! To avoid confusion, we have removed the Alchemist until we figure out what to do with that feature.
  • Piles of Bones, Pumpkin Shrines and Zombie Hordes no longer spawn, Oryx 2 stopped wearing Halloween costumes and no longer drops Magic Pumpkins.
  • Feed Power was added to Pumpkin Seed tokens (200 each) and Bone tokens (50 each), but they can no longer be exchanged for items.


  • The Killer Bee Nest is now optional like the Lost Sentry (still visible on the mini-map).
  • Month of the Mad God tokens and bags have been removed.

New Features

  • New Shop UI - Promotions, Packages and Mystery Boxes are combined in a brand new Shop UI with some additional functionalities.
  • New customer support login integration.

Quality of Life

  • Legends leaderboards display a red glow for the top 10 players.
  • Potion Purchases are disabled by default.
  • HP Bars are enabled by default.


  • Fixed damage bypassing invulnerability under specific circumstances, while encountering lag spikes. Oryx lag should finally no longer be a threat, but be careful nonetheless!
  • Fixed teleport going on cooldown despite failing, improved error handling.
  • Fixed Parasite Chambers, Puppet Master's Encore and Lair of Shaitan completions not being tracked.
  • Fixed Nexus and Options button overlapping with the mini map.
  • Fixed disconnection issue in the Shatters.
  • Cleaned up invisible Shatters entities which were unnecessarily marked as enemies.
  • Fixed some issues with the bad word filter.
  • Fixed Adorable Lil' Warrior Skin animations.

We've got a pretty big one for you and hope the wait wasn't too… horrifying. Happy Halloween!

Halloween Events (from 10/24/17 until 11/14/17)

Halloween is here and with it comes a whole bunch of events in the game!

  • The new Halloween Nexus is live! Huge thanks to Beige as always!
  • The Zombie Horde, Pumpkin Shrine and Halloween Oryx 2 are back:
    • Defeat them to collect limited edition re-skin weapons and Pumpkin seed tokens, hidden inside the Magic Pumpkins!

  • Piles of Bones and their undead servants can be found throughout the Realm during the Event:
    • Destroy them to collect Bone Tokens!

  • 10M Fame used by the Community will unlock: Candy of Extreme Wisdom!
  • 20M Fame used by the Community will unlock: Candy of Extreme Dexterity!
  • The Candies will instantly max out both stats on your favorite character!

"Hey Deca, how the hell are we supposed to spend 20,000,000 fame points in a week?!"

Here are some facts for you guys: during MotMG, the community has spent a total of 78,584,700 fame points, just on Craig's fame boxes! This time EVERYTHING counts!

We're also adding the Halloween Fame Box to the Mystery Box shop to help you with the task: some cool cosmetics, backpacks and a chance to win the exclusive Mini Cauldron Pet Stone (credits: UIPY)!

Parasite Chambers

New horrors have entered the Realm! Go look for infested buildings near the mountains to gain access to this new high level dungeon. And be careful, it's not for the faint of heart.

  • New permanent addition to the Realm.
  • 3 New UTs: a Spell, a Tome and a Scepter.
  • New mechanic: Explosive Barrels. I’m sure you’ll figure it out, just be careful. Like you should be when handling any explosives!
  • Health scaling: specific enemies scale with a number of players in the dungeon.


  • Stone Guardians also have proper health scaling, which replaced their scaling regeneration.
  • Increased the drop chance for the Manor of the Immortals.

Quality of Life

  • New command /event now displays in the chat log dungeons that have chest events active.
  • Frequent chat log system messages will now display which events are currently running.
  • Portals start flashing 5 seconds before they disappear.
  • Always Show EXP option: Show EXP notifications even when level 20.
  • Introduce invulnerability to all players when Realm generation occurs (Oryx lag).
  • Equipment Tool Tips:
    • Spells show their amount of shots.
    • Boomerang on projectiles is displayed and cuts range in half to avoid confusion.
    • Parametric on projectiles is displayed and it uses the magnitude as the range.
    • Range rounds to the second digit.
    • Rate of Fire now shows the weapon's actual value rather than relative comparison.
    • Comparison for Cooldown and Shots.


  • Better fix for invisible enemy de-sync (fixes the brief flashing).
  • No longer using queued text for Level Up notifications.
  • Made the Disable Ally Notifications option affect Level Up and EXP notifications.
  • The Horrific Creation no longer gets stuck outside of the room.
  • The Ninja default skin is back!
  • Equipment Tool Tips:
    • Boomerang on projectiles is displayed and cuts range in half to avoid confusion.
    • Fixed "Shots: 1" sometimes showing when not needed.

  • HP Bar Fixes:
    • Bars no longer show on invincible objects (for example traps in the Cave of a Thousand Treasures).
    • Bars no longer disappear on Rogue when invisible or Paladin when invulnerable.
    • Bars always show on Kage Kami (and his grave).
    • Bars always show on Treasure Pots in the CoaTT.
    • Bars always show on the final Ghost of Skuld.
    • Bars no longer show on Sprite Trees.

  • Sprite Fixes:
    • The Lunar Mystic skin has improved animations.
    • Several skin sprites and dye masks have been adjusted.

Baggage! (Quality of Life and Fixes)

  • New bag types!
    • Orange: ST, Skins, Pet Skins, Dyes, Cloths, Keys, Pet Food and Wine Cellar Incantations.
    • Gold: Tokens, Marks, Treasures and Tarot Cards.
    • Red: T13 Weapons, T14 Armors and T6 Rings (Unbound).
    • Bag priorities: Brown - Pink - Purple - Egg - Gold - Cyan - Blue - Orange - Red - White.
    • Loot Drop/Tier Potions no longer result in one bag color but rather one for each regular bag, so you can still get White Bags! This also means low tier bags won't be turned soulbound for potion users anymore.
    • Low tier items can be drop-traded!
      • Up to T9 Weapons, T4 Abilities, T10 Armors and T4 Rings (Paramount).
      • Hp/Mp pots and special consumables (now also counting Tinctures, Cocktails, and the Wooden Box).
      • You can now drag items directly out of loot bags like in good old times!

    • Just like portals, bags also start flashing 5 seconds before they disappear.
    • White Bags last two minutes instead of one.
    • Uncommon Eggs, Tinctures, Cocktails and the Wooden Box are no longer soulbound.
    • All special consumables drop in soulbound bags like they used to (Drake Eggs, Holy Water, Ghost Pirate Rum, etc.).
    • Fixed client trying to drop drop-tradable items into soulbound bags and soulbound items into public bags.
    • Fixed items getting stuck on the game screen while dragging them. No more drag and drop art and item golems on the game screen, sorry! It's the end of an era.
