Mastery System Update

Each Class now has a progress track based on experience gained while playing matches with them. Along the way you’ll earn prizes, with the very end being a mastery skin, to show off how awesome you are. We also made it so that all your previous progress with these classes was transferred over to the new track, and once you play through a match with each of them, you’ll be given the prizes you would have earned had you started from Level 0.

Quality of Life Changes
  • Common Auto Sniper removed from loot pool (intended in patch 1.5 hotfix, was bugged previously).
  • Circle sizes and timing adjusted to allow more time and possible positions for the end match circles.
  • Health and Armor pot carry limit increased from 10/10 to 15/15
  • Forge UI will show the option selected in your pre-game loadout
Neutral Changes
  • Gatekeeper damage decreased from 60 to 55.
  • Shotgun falloff and damage curves changed for damage consistency and to allow shooting multiple grouped targets. Damage reduced from 720/800/850/950 to 680/740/800/870.
  • Auto Sniper damage increased from 560/640/720/800 to -/660/740/820 (intended in patch 1.5 hotfix, was bugged previously).
  • SMG accuracy normalized. Common was bugged with different accuracy than other rare/epic/legendary.
  • Fortification no longer slows the player while in use, and the bug that allows a player’s left foot to be shot while using fortification is fixed.
Class Changes
  • Longbow projectile size decreased by 10%
  • Crossbow ammo increased from 10 to 12 (intended in patch 1.5 hotfix, was bugged previously).

  • Base Damage: 620/830/960
  • Range based damage increase: Begins increasing in damage after 30m, and reaches the maximum 50% increase at 140m. Damage bonus curve is exponential to minimize the increase in shorter range fights.

  • Net Shot: Damage decreased from 250/300/350/400 to 200/250/300/350

Realm Royale Reforged – Ver. ??? (Realm Royale Reforged Update)

  • Release date: August 24th 2022 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Armor is back!

The Runes system has been removed and replaced with Armor. There are four different pieces of Armor that can be looted, equipped, and upgraded throughout the course of a game, each granting a different buff/bonus.

Helm: Increased Cooldown reduction

Breastplate: Additional Armor P5/Health P5

Gauntlets: Increased Reload and Weapon Swap speed

Greaves: Increased Movement speed and Mount speed

Class locking is back!

Mages are flinging fireballs, and Warriors are getting Enraged! Class weapons and abilities are now locked behind Classes but….You now have more flexibility in how you play your class!

Class abilities are now separated into two types – Movement abilities and Combat abilities.

Movement Abilities

These never change, and you can not drop these from your inventory. Only upgrading or finding better rarities will increase the power of these abilities.

Warrior – Heroic Leap

  • Leap an incredible height and distance

Hunter – NEW, Grapple Hook

  • Throw a grapple hook to sling yourself through the air

Mage – Soar

  • Fly through the air

Assassin – Blink

  • Teleport forward a short distance
Combat Abilities

These are the Combat Abilities you know and love… plus a few new ones! The twist is that you can now use Combat Abilities in either slot! Want to use Charge and Enrage? GO AHEAD! Dodge Roll and Proximity Trap? Get at it!

Developer’s Note

The equip process has gone through a revision (for players that played Realm Royale in its earlier stages, you will instantly recognize this system), for current players, you might find your muscle memory getting in the way but hopefully, you find the transition smooth enough.

When your ability slots are full and you want to change to a new ability on the ground, you must first “stage” the ability and then hit the corresponding ability button for the slot itself.

Class Weapons

Class Weapons can only be wielded by their respective Class. Starting out, each Class will have two Weapons in Realm Royale Reforged. We plan to build out and add more Class Weapons in the future so stay tuned!


  • Throwing Axe
  • Long Sword


  • Longbow
  • Crossbow


  • NEW – Fire Staff
  • NEW – Ice Staff


  • Sniper Rifle
  • Heirloom Rifle

Developer’s note

The Warrior currently wields the Long Sword and Throwing Axe, and while the Long Sword is a ton of fun, we recognize that it’s not really competitively viable in its current state. We have some fun Warrior weapons ideas in the works, so keep an eye out.

Universal Abilities and Weapons are still in Realm Royale Reforged. Anyone can use these, and these Abilities fall under “Combat Abilities.”

Additional New Abilities

Universal Combat Ability

Lightfoot Potion

  • Throw a flask that increases mobility and jump height

Class Combat Abilities

Assassin – Decoy

  • Spawn a clone that shoots and gain brief invisibility

Warrior – Enrage

  • Go Berserk with superhuman strength gaining increased Attack Speed, Life Steal, and damage dealt

Mage – Fireball

  • Cast a blazing damaging fireball at your enemy
New Weapons

Universal Weapon

Auto Sniper Rifle

  • A long range semi Auto Sniper Rifle capable of scoping. 

Class Weapons

Mage – Fire Staff

  • Hurls fireballs at your target dealing aoe damage.

Mage – Ice Staff

  • Shoots Icicle projectiles dealing damage and slowing your target by 20%
Class Chests

Class Chests are a new type of Chest found throughout the Realm that can be looted for Class specific Weapons and Abilities, as well as Armor. In terms of Loot rarity found in these Chests, most of the time they’ll drop Rare loot, but there’s a small chance to find Epic gear in these Chests.

These Chests are available to loot as soon as you drop into Realm Royale Reforged, allowing players to immediately start leaning into what’s unique to their Class and gameplay style.

Circle Zone Size Changes

We’ve made some changes to how Circle Zones work to help bring back the feeling of “Battle” that comes with the Battle Royale genre.

There will now be a Circle Zone designated as soon as you load into a game of Realm Royale Reforged. Having a smaller portion of the map to play with from the beginning will result in less downtime at the beginning of a match and will bring on those fun and tense moments that players love more quickly.

Developer’s Note

The new Circle Zone sizes will be more noticeable if the Point of Interest for the final Circle is closer to the edge. This is calculated before the game starts. If the Point of Interest starts in the center, the red Zone outline will be barely visible on the map at the start.

Game mode queue changes

Initially, our only Normal Matchmaking Queues will be Solos and Trios, and Duos and Squads will be unavailable at launch.

While we understand the frustration in losing what could be your favorite game mode (Squads or Duos), we believe this direction is healthiest for the game and it comes with these added benefits for players:

  • More players per match – 60 players plus NPCs
  • Better balanced gameplay that tracks with what the competitive scene is participating in
  • LTMs that don’t interrupt the normal matchmaking queues. Currently, we have to disable a queue if we want to turn on an LTM, which is not ideal.
Additional notes and details on Realm Royale Reforged
  • The Talent system has been removed. We know that players enjoy customizing their class outside of the game and our team is looking at ways to bring that back in an exciting way. Check back for updates on this soon!
  • The loadout system will remain in Realm Royale Reforged! Players can use the loadout section to guarantee their class weapon and abilities from their class forge in-game
  • Legendary weapons may only be forged, taken from goblins, or found in Zeppelin Chests.
  • Many Abilities have been re-tuned and given additional effects.
  • You can find the stats of all weapons, cooldowns, and armor here!

  • Players can drop into an invisible wall north of North Port, causing them to be forced into the water.
