Realmstone Dustopia Realmstone.png
Version 1.1

Dustopia is a very dark and colorless dimension.



Dustopia with Night Vision.

The Realmstone for Dustopia is obtained by spawning Shadowlord while the player is inflicted with Night Vision with a Blank Realmstone in the players' inventory.


There is no day/night cycle in Dustopia. Respawn Anchors work in Dustopia despite the absence of a day/night cycle but Beds do not. Maps function properly in Dustopia and Clocks will spin wildly.

Special dimension properties[]

Dustopia has no special properties.


Dustopia has a flat landscape filled with very thick forestry and foliage. The landscape of Dustopia is almost pitch-black, making it almost impossible to see anything without some form of light by your side. Even then, the stone and wood that come from Dustopia are so blackened, the details are barely noticeable without Night Vision.

There are six structures that can be found in Dustopia:

Image Structure name Description
Primordial Village.png Primordial Village These small villages are the homes of the Primordials - Dustopia's testificates.

The Primordials come in various forms, such as the Primordial Guide, Primordial Banker, Primordial Merchant, Primordial Spellbinder and the Primordial Wizard.

Lotto Cage.png Lotto Cage These cages are a very common structure. Many of the cages you'll find may be empty but sometimes a Dustopian Lottoman can be found inside.
Merkyre Tower.png Merkyre Tower These skyscrapers are home to the Merkyre. Players should avoid these towers until they reach Hunter level 83 or higher, as they cannot damage Merkyres until they do so.
Primordial Shrine (structure).png Primordial Shrine By activating the unlit Dustopian Lamps using Darkly Powder, then right-clicking the Primordial Shrine, players can summon and challenge the Primordial Five - the five bosses of Dustopia.
Arkzyne Outpost.png Arkzyne Outpost A tower with spawners at the top that spawn Arkzynes. Players should avoid these towers until they reach Hunter level 86 or higher, as they cannot damage Arkzynes until they do so.
Crusilisk Cave.png Crusilisk Cave A small enclosed structure containing spawners that spawn Crusilisks. Players should avoid these dungeons until they reach Hunter level 84, as they cannot damage Crusilisks until they do so.


The mobs in Dustopia have a very dark and macabre theme. They also blend in very well with the colorless landscape of Dustopia, making it extremely difficult to detect them. Fortunately, many of them are also very loud, so it's easy to know what enemies are nearby once you've memorized the sounds they make.
