The Renaissance of a Kingdom[ | ]

After a dark magic experiment went terribly wrong, the entire kingdom of the Shadowforge Dwarves became suspended in a deep slumber. Now, however, they have reawakened and are searching for the lost ruler of their once glorious kingdom. Banded together in a great alliance, they stand ready to face a new evil: Maderoth.

Join them and take up arms against evil to reunite the Kingdom of the Shadowforge Dwarves.

  • New Regions
  • New Starting Area
  • New Instances

Race[ | ]

With Chapter V, a new playable race will be available in Runes of Magic. The Shadowforge Dwarves are now the third race, along with the Humans and Elves, that players can control. Create a new hero and re-experience the saga of Runes of Magic from a fresh perspective.

Shadowforge Dwarves[ | ]

A dormant race has reawakened. Frozen in time for thousands of years, separated from the world in suspended animation, the Shadowforge Dwarves stir once again. From the depths of their caverns, they are eager to reunite their kingdom, thus fortifying their place in the history of Taborea. They jealously guard their spiritual powers and forge themselves unparalleled weapons and armour.

Classes[ | ]

Two new classes will be available exclusively for the Shadowforge Dwarves, offering two new opportunities to experience the adventure in Runes of Magic.

The Warlock[ | ]

The ability to control and channel psychic forces makes Warlocks dangerous opponents. Psychic powers and dark elemental attacks from afar are their specialties. With enough channelled energy, they can invoke powerful curses, crippling foes and bolstering allies.

The Champion[ | ]

Unrivalled in melee combat, these mighty warriors unleash dark magic upon their foes. When they find themselves in danger, Champions are able to transform into Runic Robots, impenetrable war machines fuelled by the power of runes.

Regions[ | ]

Face the challenges and experience the breathtaking landscapes of Chapter V’s two new regions, which can be explored individually or with fellow adventurers.

Kingdom of Rorazan[ | ]

This scorched land was once ruled by the King of the Fires before his imprisonment. However, Maderoth has since freed him, destroying the Throne of Embers and unleashing a conflagration across the land. The creatures here have adapted to withstand this seething inferno - will you be able to do the same?

Chrysalia[ | ]

A region torn asunder by the ravages of war. The tribes that call this land home have taken up arms against one another, and you’ll get caught up in the crossfire! Your journey begins at the last bastion of King Kalume and his alliance and continues deep into the heart of Chrysalia, following closely in Maderoth’s wake.

Starting Area[ | ]

With the introduction of the Shadowforge Dwarves in Chapter V, a new starting area is also available. As a Dwarf freshly awakened from a long slumber, go forth and explore your kingdom.

Taffrock[ | ]

The capitol city of the Shadowforge Dwarves, this subterranean kingdom is where your adventure will begin should you choose to play as the new race. It is a city divided into several districts, including a great mine, where important raw materials, the backbone of the Dwarven industries, are being harvested. Caution must be exercised here, for who knows what dangers may lie lurking in the city’s unexplored and forgotten halls…

Instances[ | ]

Players starting as Shadowforge Dwarves will find their first adventure directly on their doorstep, in the starting area of Taffrock. For the more experienced players, however, a more challenging instance will provide a refreshing change of pace.

Taffrock Outskirts[ | ]

In the southern part of Taffrock, players will find the first instance available to the Shadowforge Dwarves. Dwarven researchers are working tirelessly to free their kinsmen from their suspended animation. Your challenge is to provide any support necessary to help them succeed.

Aeternal Circle[ | ]

Strong, pulsating energy gathers in the Aeternal Circle. Adventurers, factions, and mercenaries from across the world have journeyed here, seeking to control this power source. However, magical defensive shields and powerful guardians stand in their way. Find your way to the core of this energy and disable the barriers. Doing so, however, will not be without its challenges…
