A new update for the 3D battle royale game Realm Royale Reforged is now available. This patch brings some old mechanics back, most notably the armor and class locking systems.

Runes in Realm Royale Reforged are modifiers that give players buffs, such as increased reload speed and cooldown reduction. In the latest update, the Runes system is removed and replaced with the Armor system.

Buffs that were normally present in Runes are now placed in specific pieces of gear. The four different armor pieces and their associated buffs are:

  • Helm: Increased Cooldown reduction
  • Breastplate: Additional Armor P5/Health P5
  • Gauntlets: Increased Reload and Weapon Swap speed
  • Greaves: Increased Movement speed and Mount speed

These armors can be looted, equipped, and upgraded during the match.

In addition, class locking is back in Realm Royale Reforged. This means that some weapons and abilities are locked behind certain classes. That said, players now have more flexibility when playing a specific class. That’s because class abilities have been separated into two types: Movement and Combat.

Movement abilities never change and cannot be dropped from the inventory. Instead, players can only upgrade them or find better rarities to increase their power.

On the other hand, combat abilities are just class abilities that players are accustomed to. Some examples include Warrior’s Charge and Hunter’s Dodge Roll. However, the major change in this update is that players can now use combat abilities on either slot, meaning that a Warrior can equip both Charge and Enrage at the same time, for example.

Below are some of the other major changes in this patch:
