From playtest 4 onwards, you can see an additional button at the bottom of the lobby – Fame & Karma. This is a new feature of the game that allows you to judge other players based on how well you have interacted with them and whether they have harmed the team. An extreme example of behavior for which you lose karma might be killing a companion. From now on, you will be able to punish a person who does such a thing.

Players who are notoriously reported by companions will be given red names. This means that they are untrustworthy. Furthermore, they will not be able to judge others. They should therefore be watched out for.

To be able to judge others, you need Karma Report points. In order to renew them, you must go through the portals. The exception to this is reporting people who have killed a companion. You do not need this currency for this.

When you enter the lobby, you will see a Shop tab at the top of the screen. There you can buy actions for your character, new skins and emoticons. Actions and emotes are purely cosmetic changes. However, changing your character into a skeleton or elf involves some alterations to your stats.

You can acquire these items with Adventure Currency. You receive this for killing monsters, finding treasure and passing through portals. It only accumulates at the time of extraction. This means that you must complete the game.
