Journey to Brightfall to help Mirror Drakath, the Champion of Order, before tonight's release! Because THIS week you'll need to help Dage the Good in the Overworld! He needs you to FREE the souls*... and then he'll help you reach the strange, celestial egg that is the key to saving Lore's future and YOUR life!
In the Mirror Realm, King Alteon is your enemy.
And be warned, while THIS is the final release in the Mirror Realm 2-part arc, you aren't done with Xing and Xang's storyline... because THEY aren't done causing Chaos for YOU!
* Dage the Evil, in our realm, would NEVER approve!

Last week, the Champion of Order in the Mirror Realm, Mirror Drakath, contacted you with grave news: because you have no reflection in the Mirror Realm, the Universe has been thrown out of balance, and the cracks are only spreading. What does that mean?
You know what's not balanced? Two Evil Twins in one realm.
If you don't correct the imbalance, YOU will be erased from the multiverse. It's the standard self-protection sequence most universes enact. Not so fun when you're the one being obliterated, though!
Journey to the Mirror Realm with Drakath to discover what you can do to restore balance, and HURRY! You know Xing and Xang are never far when a good opportunity to cause Chaos presents itself!
Balance the Universe, or be Erased... Forever!
You've journeyed into the Underworld already, but this week in the conclusion to our 2-part Mirror Realm adventure,* you'll need to find Dage the Good in the Overworld! He'll help you reach the strange, celestial egg that is the key to saving your future... and your life!
You like your strange, celestial eggs burnt to a crisp, right?
Sounds Easy, Right? Wrong!
There's nothing more Chaotic than pure, random chance, and nothing embodies that more than risking everything on an unsure gamble. You'll need to decide whether or not to strike a deal with one of the most influential people in BOTH realms... or your luck - and your life - will run out!
* THIS arc of the Xing/Xang storyline is over, but you know the Twins... you aren't done with them until they are done with you! The next time you'll see them, they'll have a Chaos Beast ready to face you!
This Friday is the final update to Quibble Coinbiter's Mirror Realm shop! Check below for preview pictures of what you can expect to find in his shop and throughout this Friday's release:

Tuesday Featured Artist: Mido!
Every Tuesday, AQWorlds releases a limited-time Featured Artist Showcase Shop loaded with items that an Artix Entertainment artist creates. Using his or her own style and flair, our wonderful artists create truly amazing Armors, Weapons, Helms, and other Items just for you! But these items are only available for 1 week, replaced the following week by another artist’s items. Stay tuned for his Design Notes spotlight tomorrow!
X marks the spot, TreasureHunters! We've been including new ways for you to explore the game, hunts and wars to get you back to maps you have never seen, or haven't been to in a long time. 2 months ago, we released a NEW way to do that: the Treasure Map Shop! This Friday, the shop receives a set of NEW gear from Solrac: the BrightBlade Warrior!
An unsullied concept sketch from Solrac!
Wait... How Does This Work?
Talk to Cleric Joy in Battleon or Valencia in BattleonTown to buy the Treasure Map for a one-time cost of 2000 AventureCoins, then use the clue it gives in the item description to find a shop hidden in-game full of 0 AC gear only YOU can access!
The hunt is on!
Things to know:
You cannot open the Treasure Map Shop unless you have purchased the Treasure Map.
Purchasing the Treasure Map unlocks the shop forever(as long as you have it in your inventory)and the shop will be updated regularly!
The gear in the shop costs 0 AdventureCoins so you can take advantage of the free storage!
You only need to buy the map once AND keep it to access all future shop updates!
The clue will change each time the shop updates! (It wouldn't be a very good treasure hunt if it didn't!)
So... What will be in the Shop?
The NEW gear coming to the Treasure Map shop will be the BrightBlade Warrior set (pictured above)! Returning gear will be the Shadow Commander, Nameless Warrior, and Dragon Priest sets!
Every Hero's story starts with their mother.* So today's the day to celebrate whatever woman (bio-mom, step-mom, aunt, grandma, teacher or neighbor-lady) gives you the advice, reality checks, and hugs you need.
* Unless you were born on an elemental plane or wandered in from some nameless void and were created from a wisp of aether...
!Your mom knows you will always defeat the villain
Battle Bouquets, Bone-Quets, and Dragon Flatteners!
Find the 2013 Mother's Day Shop in your Dragon Menu. The Mother's Day Shop will be available for at least a week, and inside it you'll find:
The Golden Roller 13
Mother's Day Bouquet 13
Fairy Godmother 13 pet
Undead Battle Bouquet +5
Dragon Flattener +5
Fiery Bone-quet 13
Icy Bone-quet 13
Thanks to My Mom...
I want to send a huge thanks to my mom, who put up with a LOT while I was growing up! Always singing where I shouldn't, making up horrible, pun-filled poetry when I shouldn't, and forcing her to try strange (...often VERY strange) concoctions I made from random things in the kitchen.** I wouldn't be where I am today without her battle strategies for facing life's toughest boss challenges head-on and blade-first!
Choose the right gift for the occasion... or battlefield.
** A true story, and early indications that I would grow up to be an alchemist.
And Thanks to Your Mom, Too!
Yes, yours. Go on, tell her I said "thank you!" I'll wait. You're back? Good! We couldn't keep making AQWorlds if she stopped letting you play.
Oh, does she know all of the CRAZY things you've done in Lore? If you haven't yet, now is the time to tell your mom that you're going to save the world. Probably this year, if you keep slaying villains and tackling Chaos so fast. (That's something mothers like to know ahead of time.)
So whether you love your mother, ARE a mother, or just appreciate what moms do for their kids... Happy Mother's Day!
Death from above comes from YOUR hands! Kanataka Warriors are an elite fighting force patrolling the skies over Yokai Island. Unlock the Kanataka Warrior set with a 1 Month Membership; find it inside the payment window in-game (click the "Get Membership" or "Get ACs" button on your Dragon Menu, then look for the Specials tab) or on the Portal Site.
The sons and daughters of Yokai nobles are chosen at a young age and train for the rest of their lives to hone their battle skills. They are prepared to slay any enemy (or sacrifice their own lives) in order to protect the lives and liberty of the people who depend on them.
What comes with the set?
Inspired by the hawks which soar over Yokai Island, Tyronius crafted a set celebrating the Yokai's most sky-worthy warriors!
For some reason, I can NEVER find my socks! (That may be because I don't own any.) From what I hear, lots of you guys have the same problem, and you DO own socks!
Last year, to raise awareness about this missing sock epidemic, Cysero opened the Missing Left Sock Day shop and wrote a moving speech. Read about the nature of this sock-ing mystery here: Cysero's Sock Public Service Announcement.
Helping the golem put a sock in it.
Sadly, the problem still exists. For the last month, we've had players on Twitter calling our attention to the fact that they can't find their socks anywhere! Not in their drawers, not on their floors. Not under their beds, not on top of their heads. So today, May 9th, Missing Left Sock Day 2013, we want to gather everyone in AQWorlds and FIND THOSE SOCKS!
Find the Socks, Get the Prizes!
Everyone loves socks! (Unless you've got sensitive feet...) So we've crafted some woolly gear that'll really sock it to ya!
Finding the Sock Shop will be quite a feet!
Missing Middle Sock Dragon pet
Chaorrupted Sock pet
Sockarang and Dual Sockarangs
Troll Sock Helm
Nolly Sock Face
But Where ARE They?!
We can't just tell you! The whole point of the game is to find the socks and get the prizes! But I will give some you some hints.
The socks are:
Not in the water.
Not in a Chaos Beast map.
Not always in the first room of a map.
May be draped on, over, or around NPCs.
Gather your friends and start hunting through AQWorlds! The socks are yours to find... and the gear is yours to claim! The gear will stay in-game for a week or two, then the socks will disappear. (Like they always do!)
Replace your weapons of steel and iron! Man your battle-stations with the latest cutting-edge gear from our Irony X3 Limited Time Shop** and victory will be yours! Remember: in a fantasy game, it's always a good idea to bring a Blaster Beam to a blade fight, so become the Iron Warrior you never expected to be!
* Ok, wrong franchise, but it sounds so good! ** What's so ironic about this obviously high-tech, science-filled gear? It's all powered by MAGIC! ***
Irony X3: Become an Iron Warrior!
The Irony X3 Shop will be in-game until next week (keep an eye on the countdown timer!) and includes:
Cobalt Irony Man Armor set
Carbon Irony Man Armor set
Titanium Irony Man Armor set
Blaster Beam Mace
Dual Blaster Beam Daggers
*** Irony is when what you expect (here, a science-powered armor) is different from what actually IS (the Irony Man gear being powered by magic).
Tomorrow: Missing Left Sock Day!
Get ready for a SOCK HUNT! Starting tomorrow, you'll need to hunt through the game to find socks. They may be on trees, they may be on rocks. They may be on hills, they may be on crops. Once you find them, click on the sock to open the FOUND Sock shop!
We don't know WHERE the Middle Sock came from.
Find these socky items in the shop tomorrow:
Missing Middle Sock Dragon Pet (member-only)
ChaoSock Puppet Pet (member-only)
Nolly Sock Helm and Troll Sock Helms (for AdventureCoins)
Sockarang and Dual Sockarangs (non-member weapons)
NEW Cinco de Mayo Weapons! Maracas of DOOM +15!

You'll find the Cinco de Mayo shop in your Dragon Menu, and it's packed fuller than the pinata pet with equips for the whole party, Guild, or clan of worthy warriors!
Maraca of DOOM +15 (member and AC versions)
Maracas and Dos Maracas weapons!
Sombrero and Big Sombrero helms!
Pinata Pet! (It leaves a trail of candy when it runs! SWEET!)
This Friday, May 10th, the Royal Commander set attached to the 1 Month Upgrade package leaves AQWorlds... forever! Until then, you've still got time to get the gear you need to lead the Royal Army to WAR! You can find the Royal Commander set inside the payment window in-game (click the "Get Membership" or "Get ACs" button on your Dragon Menu), then look for the Specials tab!
Outshine ALL your opponents!
The set comes with:
Royal Commander Armor
Royal Battlecrest Helm
Royal Crested Helm
Royal Commander's Cape
Golden Punisher Mace
Book of Lore AND character page badges
This Friday, the Kanataka Warrior Set Arrives!
This Friday, the Kanataka Warrior set replaces the Royal Commander set! The Kanataka Warriors are an elite fighting force which patrol the skies over Yokai Island. In the past they've fought with... and against... both the SkyGuard and Sky Pirate fleets. They are prepared to slay - or sacrifice - whatever is necessary in order to fulfill their duty.
Discover the secrets of the Mirror Realm this Friday as you work with Gravelyn the Good! Xing and Xang, twin minions of the Champion of Chaos, are back and this time they're free to play a MUCH more Chaotic game. If they succeed, YOU will be erased from reality!
You are the Hero, the Savior, the one who WILL save Lore... if you aren't erased from reality before you fulfill your destiny! When Mirror Drakath - the Champion of Order - warns you that you're in great danger, you'll need to do everything you can to find a balancing agent... or YOU will ceast to exist!
Grab your maracas and straighten your sombreros because the sweetest fiesta-filled fantasy game to play on Cinco de Mayo is AQWorlds... and we're getting the party started right now with the return of all our best Batalla gear!
Fiesta in AQWorlds this weekend!
Cinco de May? /Cheer! But Where's the Gear?
You'll find the Cinco de Mayo shop in your Dragon Menu, and it's packed fuller than the pinata pet with equips for the whole party, Guild, or clan of worthy warriors!
Maracas and Dos Maracas weapons!
Sombrero and Big Sombrero helms!
Pinata Pet! (It leaves a trail of candy when it runs! SWEET!)
What is Cinco de Mayo?
Cinco de Mayo means the "Fifth of May" in Spanish, and both US and Mexican residents celebrate it to honor the battle for democracy during the first years of the American Civil War. In Mexico, it's called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla, and celebrates Mexican victory in the Battle of Puebla.
Rattle Your Enemies with the Battle Maracas!
Happy Birthday, Randor!
And our second favorite part of the Cinco de Mayo holiday: it's Randor the Red's birthday! The Creative Lead of HeroSmash is celebrating his birthday all weekend long! /cheer!

The map is a single-player map because you are battling AS Rand, the sole survivor of the attack on Ravenscar Village, and having 7 versions of the same long-dead farm boy is weird, even for us.
If you want to farm the Ultra Shadow Man for the Dual Ancient Rune Blades he drops, you can /join ravenblight!

Stratos, the BugMaster General, writes: Bug Hunters... unite!
OUR MISSION: To confirm every bug, mistake, glitch, hack, typo, and error in AQWorlds that other players report at www.Artix.com/Bugs! NOTE: We are Bug Hunters... not player support! We do not fix bugs other players' characters, accounts, or upgrades.
"The bigger the bug, the more satisfying the squish!"
If the line up there makes your fingers itch to grab a mallet and squash something, then keep reading, because you're just what Stratos is looking for! Read on for more details:
3. A couple sentences about how long you've played AQWorlds, and why you want to help squish bugs.
Here are Stratos' requirements for joining the Bug Hunter crew:
1. You need to have Skype installed. This will let him contact you directly about any of the bugs you've encountered.
2. You must be age 13 or older to join the crew, but 18+ is preferred (as we can give you more responsibilities once you've gained experience)
3. Help when you can. We don't have set times for our Bug Hunters to be available, but we would like you to be available to help regularly.
4. Must be able to follow directions... and ask questions! Stratos has a system set up, but if there's something you don't understand, ASK! He wants to help you squish the bugs as much as you want to squish them!
5. Good critical thinking skills are a plus. (Being able to see a problem and narrow down the source or reason can speed the fixing process up.)
(Please do not include your age, email address, or Skype name when posting. Stratos will be able to contact you without them. Thank you!)
So... What Now? How do I Start Squashing?
Stratos will contact you directly if you look like a good fit for this task. It won't always (or even often) be fun. You'll read reports, play AQWorlds until it breaks, then go do paperwork. But you WILL be helping the AQW dev team improve the game!
Reading reports and duplicating bugs over and over again not for you? That's OK! But DO we need EVERYONE's help reporting the bugs on theBug Tracker!
We can't fix AQWorlds unless we know there are bugs... and that's where YOU come in!
"There is power in blood. Coming from a long line of titans, your blood is especially potent. You have mastered the ability of calling on the power running through your veins to bring devastation to your foes. " - Scroll of Nine Deaths
Power and victory can be yours!
Blood Titan Class Details
Are you prepared to consume your OWN life to deal damage to your foes? Drain your own health to increase your defense? Tap the power of your fury to deal massive damage to your enemies? Yes? YES! Then it sounds like you're ready to become a Blood Titan!
Members can farm the Blood Titan or Ultra Blood Titan boss monsters for the 450 merge tokens needed to create the Class.
OR complete the member-only quest at Shi Mar (arrives Friday), which rewards stacks of 1,3,5 (or rarely. stacks of 15 or 25) tokens.
The member version of the Class will cost 0ACs for free storage.
All players can purchase the Blood Titan Class for 2,000 ACs.
Cysero will have a skill breakdown for you tomorrow!

We have had an OVERWHELMING amount of positive feedback from you guys on this Quibble shop... and even more suggestions about what we should put in it this Friday! Read below to see an incomplete list of what's coming.
Nax the (sane) Cryomancer is the Mirror Realm version of Xan the Insane Pyromancer*. In the Mirror Realm, his skull doesn't NEED healing flames because he wasn't injured. So many of you flooded us with requests an icy skull helm, though, that Memet came up with something to cool your rage!**
* DragonFable players know that Xan used to be called Alexander, but for ease of recognition, we're keeping Mirror Xan's name as Nax. * No one was really angry, but the pun worked well!
Yorumi finished the Blood Titan Class coding today and it is now ready for staff testing! Prepare to break some skulls, because with this tank class, you'll want to charge into battle, mace-first!
How Can I Get the Class?
Good question! Members can earn the Blood Titan Class by saving up Blood Titan Tokens, which drop from the Blood Titan and Ultra Blood Titan boss monsters! Find them when you /join bloodtitan! This week we'll ALSO add a quest to help you farm up tokens.
The Class will ALSO be available for 2,000 AdventureCoins! Find Blood Titan in the Class Shop on your Dragon Menu this Friday. Expect a skill breakdown from Cysero later this week!
What About the Tier 3 Sepulchure Weapons?!
Good news! Beleen and Dage worked out the last of the bugs with the armor. (For some reason, it worked fine in testing, but on the live servers... no one had a chest!) She and Dumoose will add the quests for the Tier 3 gear in the morning. She say "THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!" for your patience.*
*You can HEAR the pink in her voice when Beleen gets excited and/or grateful.
This Friday, journey to Ravenscar, a cursed town doomed to burn for as long as Dage's Undead Legion stalk Lore! Go back in time to discover the truth of how the first Legion soldier was created in a maelstrom of rage, revenge, and exploitation!
Once you arrive in Ravenscar, you'll meet Mina, a ghost doomed to wander the village for as long as her beloved Rand is forced to battle with the Undead Legion. She will guide you on the first step of your journey into the dark, dark past.
Meet Mina. She's dead now.
At the end of the storyline, you can unlock two shops: one for members of the Undead Legion, and one for those who have not yet declared their allegiance.
Find the Ancient Warrior set will be in the Ravenscar Legion shop. The Vengeful Warrior set will be in the Ravenscar Rewards shop.

This week, Quibble Coinbiter has returned with an all new set of never-before-seen, slightly-used items from the future! In this case, he's selling items from the Mirror Realm where Dage the Evil is Dage the Good, Paladins are Painadins and the Doomknigts serve the light!

Don't miss out of the all-new FUN!
To battle the Blood Titan and Ultra Blood Titan, find Shi Mar in Greenguard East, on the edge of Darkovia! To take on the DoomKitten, speak with to Kottur in Warlic's Magic Shop!
Blood Titan and DoomKitten attendants!
The Ultra and Blood Titan monsters drop:

Titan's Brawler Mace!
Titan's Blood Mace!
Titan Attendant Armor!
* The Class will also be available for 2k AdventureCoins if you have not upgraded your Hero.
Dage's Undead Legion has a long, very dark history. Much came before the Undead Legion as we know it today was formed... and Dage has many plans for it which have not yet been revealed. In order to explore the Legion's history more fully, and better plan out suitable quests, we're going to delay releasing the Ancient Undead set until NEXT week.
Next Friday, we'll release this set along with specific quests to let loyal members of the Undead Legion farm up the tokens necessary to purchase the coming Undead Legion Class! The Class will be available for either a ridiculous amount of Legion Tokens OR for AdventureCoins (but you will need to be a member of the Legion to buy it with ACs).
This Class will NOT go rare, and we are planning to release the Class this Summer. Warriors who have not yet learned of the Legion's power deserve to share in the deadly might and majesty of the coming Class. Fair warning, Legionnaires: You WILL want to start farming early to earn enough Legion Tokens to unlock it, though!
Post-thought: I've got an idea crowding my brain-meat. It might be time for another Legion-based short story. Anyone up for exploring how Dage converted the first warriors to his Undead Legion?
Coming later tonight: Quibble Coinbiter's shop returns! Take on the DoomKitten Challenge boss fight in Warlic's Magic Shop OR tackle the Blood Titan (and ULTIMATE BLOOD TITAN) Challenge boss monsters in Greenguard East!
You said the Astral Guardian Shop Would Still be Here!
You are correct, Hero! It IS still available in-game, but the shop has been moved. To where? Into your Dragon Menu, so you can access it from anywhere inside AQWorlds. If you've logged in since yesterday, you'll see we made some changes to the menu.
What All is on the NEW Dragon Menu?
Good question! Scan your eyes about an inch down the site to see screenshots of the new menu! But if you prefer bullet points to pictures, here's a handy list:
News of our weekly releases
Your map of Lore
A link to Ballyhoo
The In-game Payment button (Shows "Get Membership" if you are not upgrade or Get ACs if you have")
How Do I Find the Shop?
And here's a pictoral guide for those of you who hate words. (They say "A picture's worth a thousand words," after all.) So for you, graphic illustrations of how the Astral Guardian gear is only 3 clicks away!
Step 1. Click the Shops button on your Dragon Menu.
Step 2. Click the Astral Guardian shop button on the Shops tab.
Step 3. Choose the items from the Astral Guardian or Astral Wanderer sets from the shop before it leaves May 1st!
Will All Shops Be On That Tab?
It depends. One of the things we want to avoid now is cluttering up Battleon. With so many people in the map, having too many NPCs along the side makes things VERY confusing! (One time we had EIGHT of them... NPC OVERLOAD!!!)
So now, if you're looking for a shop that used to be in the main Battleon map and you don't see it, check the Shops tab on your Dragon Menu first! If it's not there, it's gone for good. Some of the shops you'll see there are:
Featured Artist shops
Rare shops (until they leave the game)
Limited Time shops
Ways to get to Special shops like the Seasonal or Treasure map shops
There are a ton of great reasons to renew your Membership in AdventureQuest Worlds… but the #1 reason is that your upgraded account will also give you PRIORITY ACCESS to the Alpha Tests of our new video game... and the next test is later TODAY!
Become an Alpha Knight!
Programmer Zhoom has been hard at work on "interactive objects," so we are bringing the test server online later today (and leaving it up until AQWorld's new release starts Friday night) to try it out!
To participate in the Alpha Test you must be a Member of AdventureQuest Worlds or have supported one of our games in the past. We love you guys for making all of this possible!
Can YOU take down the Troluk?

Every Monday, the team leads meet to go over their plans for the week. In today's meeting*, Artix asked, "Hey, AQW team! What INCREDIBLY-AWESOME releases do you guys have planned?! We should tell EVERYONE about all the insane things we've got planned so they can gear up before the BIG BATTLE!!!!"
2013 Continues the Chaos!
Here's what Cysero and I have planned:
May: Begin the 2-part Xing/Xang** mini-arc in the Mirror Realm!
End of May: Mage University zone***
June: Summer of Dage! Dage the Evil takes over AQWorlds with NEW gear, quests, boss fights, and a Class****!
June: More updates to the town of Battleon!
July: A NEW member-only zone with challenge fight, mini-game, Class, and exclusive gear!
July or August: the 12th Lord of Chaos zone... can you guess WHO the Chaos Lord is?!
This Summer: Guilds Phase 2/3! Customizable Guild Cities AND Halls PLUS Guild vs Guild wars!*****
Prepare for the Summer of DAGE!
* BEFORE the nerf-gun battle, AFTER the ninja attack... ** Why are we only just NOW doing the 2nd Lords' zone? Because Chaos, that's why! *** A player on Twitter suggested Horcwarts University! LOL! **** Cysero and I will still head AQW, but we've asked Dage to design ALL of June's releases! ***** Yorumi is already BACK to work on Guilds AND has made significant progress!
Become a LightCaster to destroy the Darkness! Will you wield the Light... or fight against it? The Order of the LightCasters formed to support the Champion of Light, but war grows closer and they need YOUR help!
Starting today, April 24th, at 12 PM server time (Noon), upgrade with either a 3 month membership package OR purchase a 5,000 AdventureCoin package to unlock the LightCaster Armor set!
ALL of the items unlocked when you purchase either the 3 month membership or the 5K AdventureCoin package will be non-member, 0 ACs for free storage AND will come with a character page badge!

The LightCaster Limited Time Shop will include:
LightCaster Runic Cape
Shining LightCaster Runes
LightCaster's Ring Helm
LightCaster's Ringed Hood
Hammer of Shining Justice
Wand of Glory
Staff of Victory
Member-Only LightCaster Exclusive Items are:

The introduction of the LightCaster special package means the Astral Guardian and Wanderer package will go rare on Wednesday! Since we promised that the Astral Guardian Limited Time Shop would remain in-game until May, it will be available until May 1st.
