Character Progression

Know that you know the city, let’s talk about your character.
There are many ways in which you character can progress and become stronger during your adventures in Shadow Realm.

Stat Points

As soon as you finish your first task, you’ll notice in the game that you have been awarded with a stat point.

Status Points can be obtained by:

  • Completing Task
  • Stat Stones (Rewards from)
    • Orbs
    • Dungeons
    • Daily Quests
    • Shadow Boxes
    • Champion's Challenges


Spell-Stats Tree
Like the Stats, your character’s main spells can also been upgraded. For that you’ll need a spell stone in order to upgrade your spells. To see your progress on the matter just use the command !spellstats or !spellprogress Spell Stones can be obtained by:

  • Orbs

Adaptive Equipment

To face the many dangers (and keep your style on check) you’ll need the right equipment, in this world, the adaptive equipment system reigns above all tibia equipment.
Therefore, do not use any of RL Tibia’s weapons or equipment.
Main reason for that is because of “strength”, a hidden attribute that will scale based on the set pieces you have equipped (the higher the tier, more strength), increasing drastically your healing spells and overall damage output.
Quick Tip: Quests for the 2nd and 3rd adaptive set, can be found at the teleport tower.

Gear Upgrade

Now that you know which gear to use, you might as well want to upgrade them, right?!
There are 3 types of upgrades:

  • Upgrade Crystals
    These magic crystals allow you to increase your equipment’s stats and also add even more stats, like +mana/hp, speed, damage reflection and so on.
    You can check the full overview of the topic right here.
  • Mystic Forge
    A magic reinforcement to your gear will drastically increase it’s power in offense or defense, depending on where you apply it.

  • Imbuement
    In Shadow Realm Imbuements can last as long as you want, with no time-based usage, these powerful enchantment can provide your weapon with unique stats like mana or health leech, crit status or extra damage.

At the north side of the teleport area, you’ll find the dungeon hub, where you can team up with friends or take challenges solo.

Each dungeon consists in 2 stages:

  1. Defeat a given number or enemies.(you can keep track of your progress by looking at the “Local Chat” console)
  2. Boss Room: One you defeat all the required enemies, you’ll have to find the portal and/or solve a puzzle to access the boss.
