To get started training this skill you must complete the Karma quest, the guide for this is found at Karma Quest
The most important mechanic, and the one we will take a look at first, is the ability to train the Karma skill in two different directions. If you decide to take the side of Evil, you train the Karma skill in the negative direction, with a max level of -150. If you decide to take the side of Goodl, you train the skill in the positive direction, with a max level of +150. Every training method can be undertaken from either point of view, giving the same experience but in opposing directions.
This guide will take you through all current training methods and offer tips about when and how to use each method.
Level 1-5 (Free): The Dog
The very first training method for karma leaves no grey area between Good and Evil.
- On the side of Goodl, you will be petting a dog for +10 exp per belly rub.
- On the side of Evil, you will be kicking a dog for -10 exp per pooch punt.
(If you wish to save a few bucks, this will get you on to the next training method nice and quick.)
Level 1-5 (Costly): The Wells
Also available from level 1 are the Well of Good Will and the Well of Bad Will.
- Adding cash into these wells gives experience at a rate of 1 exp per 1000 DSCoins. The Well of Good Will is the same one which already exists in game, while the Well of Bad Will is a new well, whose offerings directly counter offerings to the Well of Good Will, at half the rate. This means that the positive server-wide effects caused by the Well of Good Will require twice as much cash to be added into the Well of Bad Will to be negated completely.
- Getting level 5 from the well costs roughly 400k DSCoins. If the player wishes, they may use the well to skip as far through the levels as they are willing to pay for. Level 50 would cost 100M DSCoins, and level 99 would cost a staggering 13 billion DSCoins.
Level 5-20/40/50/60: Karmic Stalls
At level 5 you gain access to the Stalls of Giving and Stalls of Taking. These operate similarly to thieving stalls but instead of giving cash, these are the first methods to give the Karmic Kismets. The Karmic Kismets will be used in the Karma Reward Shop coming in the second release of Karma related content.
There are four tiers of Karmic Stalls at levels 5, 10, 15, and 20. Their experience and Kismet outputs are as follows:
- Level 5: 25 exp & 1 Karmic Kismets
- Level 10: 50 exp & 2 Karmic Kismets
- Level 15: 75 exp & 3 Karmic Kismets
- Level 20: 100 exp & 5 Karmic Kismets
In the Guild of Goodl you will be "Giving Offerings" to the Stalls of Giving and in the Guild of Evil you will be "Taking Offerings" from the Stalls of Taking.
If you stop at level 40 to use Altar Offerings, you will be paying about 30M DSCoins to go from level 40-50, or over 100M DSCoins to go from level 40-60. If you stop at 50 to train at the Tree of Life, you will gain a lot more Kismets going from level 50-60 than you would at the stalls, but it will take you longer to pass through those levels.
Level 20-40/50/60: Karmic Altars
At level 20 you unlock the Altar of Heavenly Grace and the Satanic Altar. These altars are completely AFK and give + 1 experience per second (3.6k exp per hour). They are slow but obviously are really low intensity and are a Goodl option whenever you need to leave your computer for a while!
Level 40-50/60/70/80: Karmic Altar Offerings
At level 40, you gain the ability to leave offerings on the altars. A shop next to the altars sells Holy Oils and Satanic Summons. These offerings cost 500k DSCoins each and give the player + 1k exp & 1k Karmic Kismets when used on the altar. This makes altar offerings half the cost per experience points of offering to the wells.
This provides very quick but still very expensive experience. Going to level 50 with this method costs about 30M DSCoins, level 60 costs about 110M DSCoins, level 70 about 350M DSCoins and level 80 about 1B DSCoins. These costs are huge, so it's recommended the player move on from altar offerings sooner rather than later.
Level 60-70: Karmic Slayer
At level 60 you gain access to the Goodl or Evil Slayer Master, depending on your faction. These masters assign high level slayer tasks which give + 1750 exp & 2500 Karmic Kismets upon completion.
You can find the list of slayer tasks: Karmic Slayer
At level 85, these masters can be paid 100k DSCoins to force an Abyssal Sire task.

Level 80-90/99/120/150: Karmic Offerings
Karmic Offerings are among the quickest training available for the Karma Skill. They involve sacrificing certain high-value and rare items in exchange for Karma experience and Karmic Kismets. The items you can sacrifice and the rewards given can be found at: Karma Statue
Make sure to always calculate the experience rates relative to the cost of the items; it could either be cheaper or more expensive than altar/well offerings at any given time.
Level 90-99/120/150: Mad King Raid
The Mad King is a new raid released specifically with the Karma Skill!
It is a 4-stage raid, which once completed rewards the player with 5k Karma exp & 1k Karmic Kismets. It also has the same loot table as the Ninja Turtles Raid. This is quite slow as a training method but is obviously completely free and very rewarding if you can get consistently good at the raid.
