Rusty coins detail.png

Rusty coins are the currency used in Dungeoneering to buy items from the Smuggler.

Unlike coins used outside of Daemonheim, they cannot be stored in the player's money pouch.

When the Smuggler is asked about them, he says: "Oh, they're nothing. You can give them all to me, if you want.", and the player refuses.

    • These coins are now easier to pick up.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Gold cannot actually rust; only oxidise. In order to rust, a compound would have to contain iron elements. Therefore, as stated in the FAQ for the update which released them, the coins in Daemonheim are not composed of gold, but rather of a material similar to novite (or novite itself).
  • The examine, which is "They make the world go round.", is a reference to the common idiom used in the real world, "Money makes the world go round".
  • Along with the update on 16 January 2012, they have changed to a bright orange colour, as the previous grey colour was not visible on some floors.
  • They were introduced to the game with the money pouch, replacing the normal coins previously used in Daemonheim, to make the difference between Daemonheim coins and normal coins clearer.
