Dark Age of Camelot is a 3D medieval fantasy MMORPG that revolves around war between three realms following King Arthur's rule.
DAoC includes both Player vs Environment and Realm versus Realm vs Realm combat. Players can choose to adventure alone or join groups. Players may also join battlegroups, which are formed so all members can get completion credit in large scale PvE encounters and for communication purposes in RvR.
Player vs player combat takes the form of Realm versus Realm vs Realm. RvR restricted to a limited number of zones where action ranges from massive battles to one vs one fights. Players are awarded points, which are used to purchase additional abilities, by killing enemy players. Participating in RvR combat is strictly voluntary in DAoC and free for all PvP only exists on a dedicated server.
PvE focuses on defeating Mob monsters found in dungeons, the open world, and RvR zones. Players earn experience points towards obtaining levels by killing both monsters and enemy players. Gaining levels yields new skills, abilities, and access to expansion areas. The current maximum level is 50. Expansions to the game offer alternative advancement type levels that grant additional abilities to level 50 players.
The decision to develop Dark Age of Camelot was made in late 1999. The game was released in October 2001.

 Cheat codes
 Easy money
If you just started and you are a beginner, ask some of the people in your group that you start with for money. You might get some copper or perhaps even some gold. Note: This does not work if at a high level.
 Easy money
If you fight skeletons, snakes, giants, and other creatures, you might get some body parts, gems and other items to sell. Gems will give you a lot of money but body parts do not sell for as much.
 Armor without paying
Find skeletons, and if you can, fight them. They will be yellow if beginners. You might get some armor or cloth.
 Coruscating Mine
In Coruscating Mine on the bridge, if you walk very slowly over the edge near the middle you can fall onto the side of the bridge.. You can cast spells on opponents, and they cannot attack you.
You must at least be level 25 to fight in Realms or you will die very easily. If you are at level 20, fight in a group with your guild.
 Shrouded Isles
Shrouded Isles is the most difficult place to start at because people from other places like to run in there, find the weakest person, and attack them o get experience so they can progress. Also, Shrouded Isles has the most difficult people to raise up.
