Gaming Friday: Getting to Level 20 in Realm of the Mad God

Just <a href="http://thinkcomputers.wpengine.com/realm-of-the-mad-god/">a few weeks ago</a> we talked about Realm of the Mad God, the “co-op fantasy mmo shooter” from Wild Shadow Studios.  Even since then a lot of us here at ThinkComputers have been playing the game.  I myself have unlocked all of the character classes, had many level 20 characters, explored many of the dungeons and even defeated Oryx a few times.  Even though I’ve had some awesome characters with great gear I ended up dying and when you die in the game you are permanently dead.  This is a real bummer, but it does keep the game interested.  When you start a new character the first thing you want to do is get back up to level 20 so in this Gaming Friday I will be going over some of the easiest way to reach level 20.
