Do You Have What It Takes To Break AQWorlds?
We release new content EVERY WEEK! (Sometimes, multiple times a week!) If you are an experienced, friendly, and helpful AQWorlds player, know the game inside out, upside down, and right-side 'round, and are willing to spend countless hours playing the game to test, break, and help FIX it... then we want YOU!
AQW Team Searching for New Testers!
We are posting this on the Design Notes first because we ALWAYS want to get people from our community. You all know the game as well (and sometimes better O_O) than we do, so it makes sense to bring new help onto the team from our player community! Real life has stolen some of our testers away over the last few months, (shakes fist at real life), so it's time to buff our team count!
STATUS: APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN!
Here is what we are looking for. Someone who is:
- Experienced (this does NOT mean you have to be level 50+)
- Knowledgeable (you should know how all the various parts of the game play)
- A good communicator (if you cannot explain the bug you've experienced, we cannot fix it)
- Easy to work with (our testers work hard and have fun. Since this is a volunteer position, we want everyone to enjoy what they do and who they work with)
We will be looking at your AQW account history, social networking and forum accounts if you have them, and arranging an in-game interview to talk one-on-one with potential candidates.
Here is what you need to do:
- 1. Send an e-mail to AQWapplications@aq.com with the subject line AQW TESTER APPLICATION
If your e-mails subject line says anything except AQW TESTER APPLICATION then the filters will automatically delete it. Reading comprehension is good.
- Include your real name, age (18+ only)
- Include your country of residence.
- Include your AQW Game account name and email address
- Include your Master Account name and email address tied to the master account.
- Include your Forum account name and email address if you have a forum account.
- Include all Languages you speak/read.
- Include the days and times you're available to help out! We really need some people who can help during Friday's release testing, but if you can't, don't worry - some types of testers can do their work at any hour.
- Include a Resume (C.V.) *please note we'd like the resume in English.
You must be 18+ to be considered for these position(s).
One application per person. We will read and consider all applications, but cannot reply to them all. If you are chosen to go through a further interview, we will contact you by e-mail. If we do not respond, we want to thank you for being awesome enough to volunteer!
Please note that this is an unpaid, volunteer position but does come with in-game Tester status, free AE game memberships, AdventureCoins, the chance to test game content as we develop it before release and invaluable experience with a honest-to-goodness gaming company which will look good on ANY future resumes.
Thanks, good luck and Battle On!

Life or Death Battles Ahead!
As Dage, Nulgath, and ALL of the forces of evil gather to assist Empress Gravelyn, the undead trapped in Death's Realm grow uneasy... the urge to join their masters has sent them into a frenzy! If you are going to battle your way out of Death's Realm to help Empress Gravelyn, you will need to defeat MANY monsters, including the Infernal Warrior and Toxic Fiend, both of whom were lost to Death's domain centuries ago.
Death waits for all heroes... even you!
Infernal Caldbolg Blade and Quest!
In addition to the other gear in the Living Shadows Rares shop this Friday, the Infernal Caladbolg Blade will also be available for 3000 AdventureCoins!
Will you master the blade... or will it control you?
The blade will unlock an exclusive quest to gain the Dual Infernal Caladbolgs, along with a Shadow animation, Rep and Class points bonus!
Next Month: Nulgath Gear Arrives!
As the shadows spread over Lore, Nulgath the Archfiend reappears! You'll find him in this Friday's release aiding Empress Gravelyn in the best way he can, but he will need YOUR help to do that. Beware: should you fail him... the consequences will NOT be pretty! (I would a-VOID doing that, believe me!)
Do not disappoint the ArchFiend.
Nulgath has been working on a new Void Beastmaster set for an upcoming project, but will ALSO have a Rares Shop in a few weeks along with many of the Oversoul-themed items as permanent quest and drops in the Tercessuinotlim zone!
Gear Up For Gravelyn's Attack on Chaos!
Empress Gravelyn has watched the Alliance crumble and Chaos spread like a plague across her world... and she is DONE preparing! This Friday, she is readying for the first step in her assault on Mount DoomSkull - raising Shadowfall, her dracolich fortress! She will need help from all who wish to defeat Chaos! Will you stand by her side?*
If you played the last 13th Lord of Chaos Saga release in the /drakathfight map, you're wondering "... HOW can I do THAT? Didn't I (spoilers removed) ?!?!!" Yes, yes you did ... and that is a life-or-death obstacle you'll need to demolish in order to reach her!
If Gravelyn succeeds, Shadowfall will rise, the ShadowScythe will strike, and the Living Shadow Assassins will stalk the realms of Lore to do her bidding!
* You must have completed the Mount DoomSkull release to begin the ShadowRise story. /Join MountDoomskull to begin it.

Relive the Birth of the Champion of Chaos!
Drakath, the Champion of Chaos, has had only ONE goal all along... and tonight you'll learn exactly what that is but more importantly... WHY his desire to raise Chaos and destroy YOU has been all-consuming!
Confront Drakath in a NEW form!
Tonight, /join falcontower to go back in time! After last week, you learned about Drakath's father, King Slugwrath, and Prince Drakath's early years as a bandit. Now you'll see his rise to power, his greatest ally and his worst enemy... and the Queen who frees him from ALL debts, except the one her owes HER!
After you defeat tonight's three bosses, you can face the final two in challenge maps and complete Lady Celestia's daily quests to gain Seals of Light and Darkness! Collect 100 seals (50 each) to earn the Bright Knight armor!
The Knight of Light +5 and the ArchMage's Wrath armors are available in the Chaos Rares Shop*! The Knight gives you +5% more gold and damage against undead. The ArchMage's Rage has an item animation.
OR you can complete the Daily Quests AND pay 1 million gold for a free player version of the Knight Armor (no bonus). A free-player version of DragonFable's ArchMage armor (no animation) is available from the Chaos Rep shop for rank 10!
* Knight of Light +5 will be moved Monday, as it is not going rare. DragonFable's Archmage armor WILL go rare, as will the ArchMage's Wrath.
Upgrade to unlock new exclusive sets!
Legends should log in NOW, because the BitterHeart and FlameBlade Assassin sets are live! Talk to Ragnar in Battleon to access all 28 items from both sets in our newest Legend-only shop! Each month, the shop will get a new exclusive set only available to Legends!
We've been doing a lot of upgrade packages, and that means we've got a LOT of Legends running around! The Monthly Member Shop will feature an exclusive set (or two) each month, each as showstopping as these!
- If you have an active membership, you'll be able to open the shop and buy the gear right away!
- The shop will have both rare and permanent Legend-only gear (rare sets will be announced ahead of time)
- Gear in the shop will be available for various amounts of gold, so if you haven't had a chance to save up, there will still be a lot for you to get!
