The dungeon is a room or set of rooms that can be built in the basement of a player-owned house. It can be built at level 70 Construction. The dungeon room, unlike other rooms, can come in 3 different styles, each with their own hotspots, and can be accessed via a skill hall, quest hall, garden, or formal garden. The three styles are:

  • Corridor
  • Junction (or Cross)
  • Stairs

Each part of a dungeon that is built counts as a room against the total number of rooms a player can have. For example, building a stairs room, a junction, and two corridors counts as four rooms. Some players who wish to build an extensive dungeon often end up removing other rooms they had previously built.

It costs 7,500 to make a corridor, junction, or stairs room. The cheapest way to build a dungeon is to construct a limestone spiral staircase in a quest hall and build stairs leading down. Assuming a quest hall already exists in the house, this would cost 30,000.

There are 7 hotspots available across all dungeon room types:
