Oryxmas is here and Kensei comes with it!

Release NotesTags: , , , ,

Ho ho ho, Realmers, 

Oryxmas is here! And we are bringing a lot of additional things with it. From our new class, the Kensei, to our new dungeon mods, you name it. It’s Oryx’s birthday so we are bringing a lot of new exciting things to RotMG like a new Shop, Veteran Skins, Skin Ranks, new Campaigns and Quests and more. You also don’t want to miss out on our three Free Packs! So let’s start off this festive season with our new class.

The Kensei

In a temple deep in the Mountains, a school of disciples of the Samurai has been pursuing a path of grace and power. They perform elaborate rituals of war and spirituality, imbuing the Sheaths that house their honed blades with peculiar magic and enhancing both their prowess and their essence as warriors. Each student crafts their Sheath over years of training and journey, making it as much a part of themselves as their blade is. After years of arduous training, a select few of the school can claim the title of Kensei, Sword Saint. Each of them a legend in their own right, these warriors have perfected the art of the blade to a previously unthought-of extent. Thus a Kensei’s power lies between their immaculate control, their sage philosophy, and their magically empowered weapons. They now emerge from their hidden monastery on a quest for honor and justice.


Kensei is the 18th class in the game. He dashes and slashes enemies at close range to bolster his combat effectiveness.

In comparison to other classes, it’s riskier but more rewarding! 

The Kensei uses the following gear:

  • Weapon: Katana
  • Ability: Sheath
  • Armor: Heavy
  • Any Accessory or Ring

Unique Ability – Sheath 

To better understand the ability, we will separate it into four sections:

Channeling time + Dash Mode

Channeling is a short cast that Kensei has to complete successfully before he is allowed to dash.

The Sheath ability lets you perform a small channel, after which you enter Dash Mode. During this mode, you can dash X amount of times or it expires in Y seconds.


The trail is a unique quirk of the Kensei that will do both damage and increase his stats. While he dashes, Kensei spawns a line of particles behind him that deals damage to all enemies hit.


Is a new form of stat-buff we are introducing for Kensei. You will dynamically get a buff to your Attack (or any other stat), based on the number of enemies you hit with your trail (it’s addictive, but capped at 5). E.g. 5/15/30/50/75 % for 1/2/3/4/5 enemies hit.


At the end of the dash, Kensei will emit a projectile in the corresponding direction.

How to Unlock 

The unlock requirements are Trickster and Ninja at level 20.

Dungeon Mods 

We keep making changes to Dungeon Mods! This time we have reworked our existing systems a little bit, trying to improve on the performance and several other “behind-the-curtains” aspects. Also, we have included a bunch of new Dungeon Mods we’d like to present to you! 

Changes on existing Dungeon Modifiers 

  • We have adjusted “Bis”. It now has a 50% chance of dropping the portal to the same dungeon. 
  • Introduced the new bias for Dungeons spawned in the Realm. See info below. 
  • We have decided to remove ‘Battle for the Nexus’ from the dungeons that can apply Dungeon Modifiers. Keys for this Dungeon will work as usual but they won’t be able to be refined.

Dungeon Modifiers in the Realm 

  • As you know, almost all dungeons you can find in the Realm have a chance of spawning with Dungeon Mods. 
  • We have increased the chance of spawning with a higher Grade. This means that you will see that, on average, the Grade of the dungeons you get is higher than what it was. The harder the dungeon, the more noticeable this effect is. 
  • Particularly, dungeons that spawn once-per-realm will be affected by this more noticeably.  
  • These dungeons can spawn with Dungeon Mods 75% of the time 
  • Also, regardless of the Grade they spawn, they will tend to have “better” Dungeon Mods 
  • Keys are not affected by this “positive bias”. They can be rolled normally and the chances of re-rolling Dungeon Mods are the same as always. This change only affects dungeons spawned in the Realm.

New Dungeon Modifiers 

We are closely listening to your feedback. You have also proposed awesome ideas and tweakings to existing Dungeon Mods, some of which inspired several of the Dungeon Mods you will see below. As always, the Design team is very happy and we want to thank you for your suggestions. All in all, we are trying to improve the system so we can have more gameplay-affecting Dungeon Mods and better rewarding Dungeon Mods. This batch is, we think, a step towards that direction. We’ll be waiting for your feedback! 

New reward Dungeon Mods 

  • These Dungeon Mods can appear only in certain Grades and could also be restricted to dungeons of a certain difficulty threshold. 
  • These Dungeon Mods give the players some kind of reward. 
 Dungeon Mod Description Dungeon Grade Dungeon restrictions

The Key Fairy will drop 1 Mystery Key!  · Rare Keys will drop in Easy dungeons. · Epic Mystery Keys will drop in Mid and Advanced dungeons. · Legendary Mystery Keys will drop in Hard dungeons. B, A, S Grade Any dungeon

Gameplay-affecting Dungeon Mods 

  • We want to start making Dungeon Mods that affect the gameplay in a more tangible way than just enemy stats. 
  • These Dungeon Mods take some effort to implement and test carefully, so we need to deliver them in small batches. We will be listening to your feedback on them and they may endure adjustments! 
 Dungeon Mod Description Dungeon Grade Dungeon restrictions 
 Found Treasure! I & II Treasure rooms will reveal themselves at the start of the dungeon if they exist. “Found Treasure! II” will also increase the drop rate of UTs and STs in those Treasure rooms by x1.25 A, S Grade Any dungeon that can have TRooms

 The Wanderer An unknown foe will appear after the Boss is defeated with its own loot table. S Grade Any dungeon 

We present you with a new challenger from unknown lands: she’s The Wanderer, a new optional miniboss. She will only appear in any S Grade dungeons that get ‘The Wanderer’ Dungeon Mod. After you defeat the boss, The Wanderer will pop through a portal and challenge you instead of her original target, which you defeated. The duel will be intense, but fair. The Wanderer will adapt her abilities to the dungeon you are in. In Hard dungeons, she will try her best to duel you. If you win, her loot will be yours (but it’ll also depend on how difficult the dungeon you are in is). 


The rarity, quantity, and probabilities depending on the difficulty of the dungeon you are in. 

  • Weapons (Easy: T8-10) / (Mid: T10-12) / (Hard: T11-13)

  • Mystery Dyes & Cloths 
  • Potions & Utility consumables 

New Shop

We renovated the Shop and added a new tab just for Skins! On the Deals tab you will be able to see all of the best promotions we have prepared for you. On the Skins tab you will find a selection of skins that will be available for individual purchase. You can switch between Character Skins and Pet skins by clicking on the toggle on the top-left corner:

You can filter by class or see all using the top row, under the two tabs in Shop:

You can also filter by Skin Rank using the buttons on the left, under toggle:

Skins Ranks – new and smoother animations

Since we migrated the game to Unity we’ve been wanting to improve the overall look of the game and now we have prepared some changes for you guys. First and foremost, you have new default skins for each of the classes. The old default skins will now be called Classic Skins and will be available for free in the Wardrobe and Character Creation screen. 

Second, we have introduced Ranks for skins::

The skins that have been so far in the game will fall in either Basic, Greater, Superior or Paramount Ranks. The big news is that we have added the possibility to have more frames on animations, optional animations for the same animation (example: have more than one attack animation), and idle animation! New skins that will have this feature will either fall into Paramount or Exalted ranks. 

Our goal is to eventually rank all skins and make the old skins (that used to be available only in the Legacy Boxes), available in the Shop. For now you will be able to find a collection of around 400 character skins and 200 Pet Skins in the Shop. 

New Skins distribution 

Based on the new Skins ranks we have adjusted the prices of skins and we hope there will be something for everyone. If you want early access to a skin, you will be able to get them through the box promotion, through the new skins quest or for their release price as an individual acquisition. This price will drop after 4 weeks. Here is what you can expect:

RankRelease price28 days after releaseQuests Requirements
Basic Skin800 Gold640 Gold2 x 20 Crystals of Extreme Fortune
Greater Skin1500 Gold1200 Gold3 x 20 Crystals of Extreme Fortune
Superior Skin2400 Gold2000 Gold4 x 20 Crystals of Extreme Fortune
Paramount Skin3000 Gold2600 Gold5 x 20 Crystals of Extreme Fortune
Exalted Skin4200 Gold3600 Gold7 x 20 Crystals of Extreme Fortune

Quests for new skins will be available from their release day and up to 4 weeks.

As for Crystals of Fortune, we are not getting rid of them just yet. During the Oryxmas event, when we have a box promotion in the shop involving older skins it will be accompanying quests that will last the same duration as the promotional box. This should allow you to exchange Crystals of Fortune for a Skin that is in the box. The amount of Crystals would again be dependent on the rank of the skin.

Something to keep in mind is that this may be the last time Crystals of Fortune will be used in this manner as we want to have Crystals of Extreme Fortune to become the only variant of Crystals that is used to exchange for skins. The future of Crystals of Fortune is currently on the table and while we do have an idea on how we want to transform their usefulness we are open to your feedback and ideas on this.

In this release, we wanted to get the most out of the new animation features, therefore you might not have as many new low tier skins. Rest assured that it is in our plans for the future to have more Basic and Greater skins.

We prepared two campaigns this Oryxmas season! The first one, Slashing through the Snow, starts today and will see the lightning fast arrival of the skilled Kensei, and introduce his abilities – as well as get the festive mood going with a set of Ornaments. Slashing through the snow will end on December 28, 12 PM UTC but will have a Grace period until December 31, 12 PM UTC during which you can claim rewards, but not points.

The second campaign, called States of Water, starts on December 31, 12 PM UTC and will let you ruminate on the contrast between the gentle Oryxmas snowfall and the roaring arrival of the Tidal Wave Kensei. Aside from the ST set, you can grab its associated Mini Tidal Wave Kensei Skin. Tiered and untiered Winter weapons will also be under the Oryxmas tree, as well as a small and friendly pet. States of Water will end on January 15, 12 PM UTC but will have a Grace period until January 18, 12 PM UTC during which you can claim rewards, but not points.

Fixes & Balance 

Treasurer Gemsbok 

  • Covered the safe spot in his spiral attack phase with long-range bombs and tweaked his spiral to not attack with the exact same angles each time 
  • Added an anti-decoy system to most phases 
  • Revised the status effects of his primary shotgun to be less punishing for the most part 
  • Changed his counter status effect from weak to slowed 
  • Counter can no longer be activated repeatedly in a loop 
  • Fixed his death animation to use properly sized coins, instead of massively oversized ones 

The Shatters 

  • Fixed some teleportation issues in the castle segment 
  • Fixed an area in the village marsh which would sometimes generate a full barrier of trees at the connection of a plank bridge 
  • Fixed an unintended vulnerability where the Archmage could take damage from stationary shots as soon as he appears 
  • Fixed a rare softlock possibility at the beginning of the Archmage fight 

Secluded Thicket 

  • The Bird Tribesman can now start by moving to any corner (thrilling stuff, we know!) 
  • Xolotl’s rage safe spot is now inconsistent and should be less reliable or desirable.


  • Updated the credits section
  • Now certain gameplay-affecting particles are visible regardless of your visibility settings. So you can both have particles transparent but the “important” particles for gameplay will still be visible.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the equipment hotkey to stop working when the player switched from a character with a backpack to a character without a backpack

    Note: We’re aware of a small issue with Graceful Kensei Skin’s mask when attacking facing up. It will be fixed with our next release.
