Why Play Runes of Magic?
While there are literally hundreds of Free-to-Play games available, this is the one you should try. Why? Because Runewalker has promised, from day one, that RoM would NEVER allow it to be turned into Pay-to-Win and they have kept that promise for over five years. Cash Shop items in RoM are for appearance, fun, or convenience only. They can help you level up a little faster and have more fun while doing it, but they will never give you an advantage over F2P players. While it is more difficult to get to endgamw without faster mounts, better gear upgrades and larger bank and backpack space, it is possible.

While it is rare that a PvP player can be competitive without paying, it is possible. At the very least, you can level all the way to endgame before you need to consider if you want to pay to get to higher gear grades.

The best approach seems to be the middle ground between F2P and P2W, where you spend just a little bit to make things easier while leveling up. Certainly, this game can be played that way for much less than you would pay for a subscription-based game.

Wiki - Not just a job, it's an adventure!
Our very own Bludwyng is playing on Govinda and having a good time running around and collecting information. Quest Series pages are populated, at least with the names and sequences, into the middle of Redhill Mountains (as of 7/29/15). Most quests are still red-links but quests, mobs and objects are filling in fast. We could really use your help!

WTH? Minigames! Ancient Treasures
I was running around Sascilia Steppes last night on one of my newer alts and ran smack into a little camp and NPC I had never seen before. Of course I had to investigate!

If you are new to ZAM, welcome! And if you have been with us all along, welcome to you too. This is the top, or Main Page, of the Runes of Magic Wikibase™ here. I am your friendly neighborhood wiki-ferret, Bludwyng, and I am here to help you, the players, make this wiki into a resource for all RoM players.

Players helping players is what this wiki is all about, so don't be shy! I will do all I can to provide you with whatever tools you need to make this place look and feel exactly the way you want it to, but I can't do all the work myself.

By the way, I am a player, too, on Govinda, so be sure to say hi to me in-game on Bludwyng (M/W), Donal (R/S) or Elbehreth (Dr/Sc)! If you are on Govinda join the ZAMWiki chat channel!

Wiki News


  • May - I, Bludwyng, have started playing RoM again, after many years away. Expect to see may small improvements and, eventually, some new endgame info as well as coverage for Chapter VI.
  • July - Playata has shut down all of their games databases, including runesdatabase,com. Sadly, that leaves us with no databse to link to. As a fallback, we now link to Google for any unknown quests, items, mobs, and objects. Click on (Ggl) to launch a search.

Wiki News Archive - All older Wiki News entries are archived here.

A Note of Thanks to the RoM Community
In all of the games I have played, I have never seen, day in and day out, a community of players so willing to help out new players. If you ask, they will come, or they will help you find someone that does have the time to help you get your update, or kill that named, or farm crystals in Forsaken Abbey, or whatever it is that you need. This experience has been amazing for me, and I just wanna let every one of you know, you rock. You totally do.

I would like to send a special thanks to my guild on Govinda, Tranquility.
