Return to Frostvale This Weekend

Battle through our returning seasonal events!

Frostval is a time of joy, hope, and... defending Lore from all the insane ice monsters that cannot stop attacking it?!?! Log in this weekend to battle through all our winter holiday events and unlock seasonal rewards!

/join Frostvale to begin battling through all the previous years of Frostval releases, then test your mettle (and metal!) against the biggest gift of them all: Giefury!*

This year, Giefury has NEW gifts for you:

  • Frostvale Healer armor
  • Frostvale Mage armor 
  • Silver Frostvale Hat and Locks
  • Frostvale Wand
  • Holiday Flail
  • and the Moglinster Tree pet

* Giefury's name comes from the Old English noun "giefu" for "a giving, gift", which is related to the Old Norse word "giftgipt" meaning "gift; good luck." 

ALL of the seasonal events from previous years will also return - that means you'll get to battle Kezeroth, Quetzal, and more... PLUS get all the holiday seasonal goodies that come with them!

Journey to Frostvale

Once again the Frost Moglins of Frostvale are opening the snow-covered gates of their town to all of Lore as they prepare for the merriest of all of Lore's holidays... Frostval! If this is your first year with AQW then you get to play through all of the previous adventures:

  • Save Frostvale, 
  • Stop the Ice Symbiote infection 
  • Watch a young Empress Gravelyn experience her first Frostval 
  • Fight to survive as Kezeroth and Karok, ice giant brothers from another world, battle to take OURS
  • and get SO MANY presents with the return of Tinsel's Seasonal Frostval Shop

That's all leading up to NEXT WEEK's ALL NEW FROSTVAL ADVENTURE (where we meet an ancient horror with an elder-god sized hunger). You are welcome to all of the great Frostval seasonal rares and the heart-warming Frostval stories.

And don't miss:

  • Quibble Coinbiter's Frostval rares shop
  • Frostval 2017 Collection Chest

Immortal Chronomancer new release date

With 9 years of Frostval events, Quibble's Shop, and the Collection chest to bring tonight, we've had to shift the clock ahead one week - the Immortal Chronomancer Class and armor set will release in Battleon town next Friday, along with the next Quibble shop update and our new 2017 Frostval event.

Next Friday... It Wakes

Join us for our all-new 2017 Frostval event!

Deep underneath the frozen Northlands, the darkness rumbles. Aboveground, human, yeti, and moglin children play, excited for the coming holiday. Faint sounds of laughter and music filter down through rocks and snow, and an ancient horror stirs. It wakes knowing only one thing… HUNGER.

AQWorlds Patch Notes

Check the list of bug fixes to see what the team has addressed

Reens, Cemaros and the AQW Bug Hunter team are busy squashing the bugs you submit each week to the Bug Tracker at www.Artix.com/bugs.

Check back weekly to see if the bug you reported has been addressed.  Please remember that not all bugs are "easy fixes" so some reported and confirmed bugs from each week may not be on the fixed list as they will require more time or a different person to fix them.

If you would like to know how the reports go from you to fixed, check this page:
http://www.aq.com/lore/guides/BugReportFAQ

Bug fixes: November 20, 2017

  1. CC issues with the Renegade Shadowslayer items fixed (again, sorry about that one folks!)
  2. Dark Legion Vampire Helm from Black Friday Shop renamed to Black Legion Vampire Helm to prevent confusing it for the one from 2012.
  3. Eternal Chronomancer description shortened to it doesn’t cover the preview pic.
  4. Cyberlord Blade of Nulgath got into the growth potions.  It’s normal size now.
  5. 0AC Dragon Chest Pets from Dragon King Chest now sellable.
  6. Reinzard On Your Back has better placement when running now.  
  7. Proto Caladbolg now sits in your hand instead of above it.
  8. Holiday Paragon now has Jingle Skulls on female belt.
  9. Dage’s Underworld House preview no longer hijacking the entire screen.
  10. General of Cerberus shield on back arm repositioned. ***


***We need to remind everyone that non-standard items like this, where extras are built in may look or perform different and cannot always be 100% ‘fixed’.


Class Updates from Arklen and team!  
Arklen and the Class Design Team will now also be giving some information*** on what they work on each week.  Arklen would also like to let you know you can give him feedback on classes on his twitter - @Arklen_AE

Nothing to report on class changes this week.  Keep an eye on this section for more in the future though!


***Obviously secret things like details of unreleased classes won’t appear here. 
****Classes may be subject to change, determined by player feedback. DNs will be posted in that event.

Getting Muted for "Jokes"

There is no tone on the internet. What you say matters.

Hi, everybody! Recently, we've had a couple pretty serious issues crop up, where players in the game have gotten muted for threatening to hack other players, bragging about doing illegal things, or making comments like:

  • U 15? [...] Send me nud3s. 
  • I'm going to come to the lab and shoot you, you pieces of @#$%^#

Both of these bullet points are actual quotes from in-game chat. 

We live in a turbulent world today, and the internet reflects that. If we see a player threatening to commit violence, or doing something that breaks the law (like soliciting pornographic images) or threatening to "come shoot up the lab", we have to take that seriously.

Those aren't things to joke about. Even if you are chatting in a public room with your friends, who know you're joking, other players may not. If they report you, our moderators see it. We require them to take action on reports like that, for our players' safety, and our own.

Often, Player Support gets emails arguing that the player was just joking. That may be... but it also might not be. The vast majority of the time, our moderators and Player Support staff cannot know what a joke is, or isn't, from a chat log.

What you say matters. Joking about violence in-game is like when you're in school, or in the work place. Don't do it. If you DO, and you get muted for it, use that as a lesson, and don't do it again.

Our first priority is to create a safe and friendly environment for our players and our team members. 

Chat Rules in AQWorlds

The following types of chat violate our terms of service:

  • Harassment or defamation 
  • Obscene or vulgar language
  • Threatening or abusive language
  • Hate speech based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or nationality
  • Advertising bots, hacks, game exploits, or private servers.
  • Spamming chat with repeated messages
  • Asking for other players’ account or personal information.

Code of Ethical Conduct

As a family-friendly community committed to providing a safe and fun place for people of all ages, Artix Entertainment does not condone any type of illicit behavior from its employees, volunteers, or community members. Engaging in such activities can and will result in immediate termination, dismissal, or suspension of accounts and any information can be turned over to the proper authorities.
