Doors are an integral part of Dungeoneering. There are a number of different types of door that may be encountered, each requiring a different action completed to open them.
Types of Doors[edit | edit source]
Basic Doors[edit | edit source]
|Door||This door is closed.||In some rooms this door is immediately possible to open (eg, starter room, room with only monsters). However, in other rooms you are required to complete a puzzle to open the door. For more information see Dungeoneering/Puzzles.||None|
|Guardian door||The gazing eye of the door watches over the room.||It only unlocks once all the monsters in the room have been slain. One exception to this rule is in the case of the different Bovimastyces which do not need to be killed to enter the door.||None|
|[colour] [shape] door||A door with [colour] [shape] markings.||Can be unlocked by finding the correct colour and shape key and using it to unlock the door. This key may be anywhere else in the dungeon.||Appropriate key|
Skill Doors[edit | edit source]
While exploring the dungeons of Daemonheim, players may encounter a door that requires them to perform a skill-based action. All of these doors require a level in a skill specific to that door. Doors along the critical path will always be able to be opened by at least one member of the party, other doors that lead to bonus rooms may have any level requirement to be passed. Level requirements may sometimes be above 99, sometimes even up to level 105 in a skill, requiring a member of the party to create a skill boosting potion or a portent of passage to unlock that door. A player may stack the effects of a portent of passage and a skill boosting potion in combination with each other in order to pass a door. It is possible for the requirement to be far out of reach even with potions. However, activating a beguiling smoke devil card or its team variant will allow all skill doors to be opened regardless of the level. In addition, buying the Daemonheim skill door boost from the Aminishi Elite Dungeon Reward Shop permanently reduces the requirements of all skill doors by four levels.
While trying to solve a door, doors can be failed, dealing moderate to severe damage and sending you an amusing commentary on what happened via your chat box. Once successfully passed, doors grant experience equal to the skill level that they required times five, to the skill used. The experience will be shared as long as the sharing option is turned on.
Only members can open doors pertaining to member skills, even if you have the required level. Trying to open one on a free world will give you the message "You are unable to unlock this door."

Update history[edit | edit source]
- patch 21 January 2014 (Update):
- Clicking on a key door after killing all monsters in a Dungeoneering room no longer triggers the message that the door will not be unlocked until all guardians have been slain.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Dark Spirit door's shadow shows the eye beams that appear when failing to open even when you aren't interacting with it.
- The skills not directly used to open doors are Attack, Defence, Ranged, Constitution, Fletching, Slayer, Hunter, Fishing, Cooking, Invention and Dungeoneering, though Dungeoneering is required to access the doors and the combat skills are used in opening guardian doors.
