Realm Of Chaos Guide
Realm of Chaos is an extremely challenging mod to beat, even for veteran Dota 2 players. It puts you up against tough waves of enemies and bosses. It is essential to properly manage your time, items, and quests for victory. Therefore, our guide provides you with the necessary knowledge for mastering this mode.
There are 2 main objectives in this game:
- Complete the main storyline to become Saint.
- Defend your base from the waves of enemies.
Failure to defend your base will result in game over. Therefore, during your quests, visit your base from time to time and defend it from any attacking enemies. Besides these main objectives, you can complete various side quests, craft items, allocate skills, and so on.
Completing quests is the bread and butter of the Realm of Chaos. They are essential for earning gold and experience, which is needed to purchase items and level up your character. Let’s take a look at the various types of quests present in the game.
The main storyline is needed to finish the game. Hence you will spend a large number of your time tackling all the main quests. From the spawn location, climb down the stairs and turn right. There, you will come across the Blue Storm Spirit, which allocates you the main quests.
That said, due to the virtue system in Realm of Chaos, you need a certain amount of virtue/essence to continue completing main quests. Virtue is earned through completing various tasks and side quests. A list of main story quests is given below:
|Initial Quests||Kill 15 WolfsKill Wolf KingKill 15 Fishie|
|600 Virtue / Essence||Kill Fishie KingKill 15 RikisKill Mountain KingKill 15 SpidersKill Spiders QueenKill 15 Snow DemonsKill Bear King|

Some general tips that can be helpful throughout the game are described below. Go through them carefully.
- Whether you’re exploring the map or completing quests, make sure you have the defense of your base in the back of your mind. If you can’t protect it from the swarming army of enemies, you will lose on the spot. Hence, keep checking your base from time. You can also use a courier to upgrade the defense of your base.
- As soon as you spawn in the game, don’t forget to pick up your starting bonus called the Adventurer’s Present. Go to the bottom left stairs and talk to the NPC there. It will drop a Christmas Gift for you, which can be used to unlock various starting perks.
- The number of enemy waves indicates their difficulty level:
Easy and Normal Difficulty = 25 Waves
Hard Difficulty = 30 Waves
Impossible Difficulty = 35 Waves
- If you’re speedrunning the game, you can do so by solely focusing on the main quest line and increasing your virtue/essence in the game.
