Changes for October 17th, 2019

Hello Realmers,

Today we are excited to release our seasonal Halloween content patch! In addition to the existing seasonal content, we are bringing in some new spells and a revamped dungeon. Read below for all of the details!

Seasonal Content

Our seasonal content for Halloween is back!

  • Explore the open world zones: Fallows and Konge
  • Spelunk within Hallows End, a Halloween-themed dungeon
  • New Halloween pumpkins available from your local Farmer's Market
  • New Halloween baldric and masks to be found
  • New event items added for Fall / Thanksgiving


Church of Damnation

Church of Damnation has been revamped to be a sister dungeon to Holy Caves (sharing some of the same loot tables). The layout has been "adjusted" with some tricks in store courtesy of Duach.


New Spells
  • New Spell: Dark Bargain - Rank 7 Necromancy spell which will either deal damage or heal all in the combat cloud based on their alignment. The strength of the damage is exponential based on alignment.
  • New Spell: Memory - Location - Rank 6 (Veteran) Sorcery spell that is used to mark a Scroll of Memory with your current location (cannot be used in Dungeons / Seasonal areas). Sold in shops.
  • New Spell: Memory - Recall Location - Rank 5 (Grand-Master) Sorcery spell that is used to teleport you to the room the Scroll of Memory was marked in. Sold in shops
  • New Scroll: Scroll of Memory - Used in combination with the Memory spells mentioned above. Sold in shops


  • Evil Heroic NPCs have Dark Bargain added to their spell table
  • Increase effectiveness of Curse spells from 25% to 100%
  • Reduced strength of some bosses in The Dig
  • Fixed bug with Duach's Vengeance where necromancy resistance was not being applied to the damage it was dealing
  • Fixed bug where build points would be subtracted if you didn't meet the requirements to learn an ability
  • World boss spawning information will now appear in a separate tab in game

Planned Maintenance, October 17th at 8PM EST

Hello Realmers,

We will be taking the server down to apply our Halloween seasonal content update tomorrow (October 17th) at 8PM EST. The downtime is expected to be approximately 15 minutes.

Important: You will need to install our new launcher in order download this update. Most of the new content from this patch is currently available on our test server.

New Realm Online Launcher

Greetings Realmers,

Today we have released a new Realm launcher which brings with it many new exciting capabilities:

  1. Having parallel installations managed by a single launcher means players won't need to install different clients for Despothes Grove or Finvarra's Fortress
  2. Decoupling our test server as a separate client installation allows us to easily open up our test server for players to test upcoming changes
  3. Displaying our patch notes in the launcher enables all players to stay informed about announcements in The Realm
  4. Using a launcher built in 2019 instead of 1998 will allow us to more reliably and efficiently deliver new patches to all of you!

In order to use the new launcher you will need to download and install it from here:

To avoid confusion with previous installs, we would recommend you uninstall previous versions of The Realm prior to installing this one.

If you have any feedback or bugs to report with this launcher please post them to our forums here:

Best Wishes,
Rat Labs LLC
