Drakath Embraces Chaos

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!

Have YOU Chosen Chaos?

Last Friday saw one of the most destiny-shattering secrets in ANY of our games revealed: your TRUE nature and why YOU are the most important Hero on Lore! What we revealed in that cutscene is probably our biggest spoiler EVER, so... if you want to know, you'll need to have chosen your Chaos Lord form AND faced Drakath on top of Mount DoomSkull first!

Then /join Drakathfight and confront the Champion of Chaos once more to hear him reveal why he chose YOU as the 13th Lord of Chaos... and what you can expect to come NEXT! While we prepare the rest of the summer storyline releases, we are releasing the "Drakath's Story" 2-part release combo:

Hercules! Hercules!

Tonight's Random Midnight Release is LIVE!

Presenting AQW's biggest, buffest, BEST arena warrior EVER! If you've ever wanted to intimidate ALL your opponents, then get ready, because Hercules and Herculisa are here to PUMP. YOU UP!

You'll find the Gladiator Powerhouse armor in your game menu for 500 ACs. It will be available until next Monday night!

Galanoth <3s Gladiators!

Lore's most famous dragonslayer LOVES movies, but not just dragon movies; he loves action movies and over-the-top battle scenes! I knew the Hercules movie was coming out in a couple days, and that Galanoth was going to be pretty excited about it. So I wasn't surprised to find him in the AQW room last Thursday with an AWESOME request:

Galanoth: We need a gladiator armor. WAY bigger than anything we've got now.
Alina: Ok, so we're talking "hoist a two-handed sword with one hand" type?
Galanoth: Bigger!
Alina: ... "Able to lift several dwarven wrestlers" big?
Galanoth: BIGGER!!!!
Alina: "Crushing cars with their han-"
Alina: I think we can make this happen for you. 
Galanoth: "DragonSlayer battle cry"*
*Dage cues training montage soundtrack*

So Memet got to work on Friday and finished up Hercules and Herculisa (she's Herc's baby sister. It's a family name.) And tonight, Galanoth's dream of wearing AQW gear muscle-y enough to benchpress dragons is a reality!

* We have life-size versions of the DragonBlade AND Galanoth's helmet at the secret underground lab. The above conversation is pretty typical.

Chaos Lord Fan Art Contest Update

See the Lord of Chaos Fan Art winners!

The first ever Chaos Fan Art Contest was a HUGE success—over 900 entries were submitted!

its over 900 meme adventurequest worlds

It's over 9000--oh wait. I modified the meme. Deal with it. 

And, as you can probably imagine, it was quite chaotic to review each and every submission, place them in front of a panel of judges, and narrow down all our favorites—aaaand not to mention, having to coordinate ALL OF THAT around vacation time, sick days (*cough* like me *cough*), graduations, and the like!

So I am pleased to report that we will begin announcing the Chaos Fan Art Contest winners today—starting with the 1st Lord of Chaos, Escherion!

Akkiles Escherion hydra fan art

Find all your Chaos Lord Fan Art Contest Winners shown in the links below:

As Friday is release day, we will *most likely* have to wait until Monday next week to resume the Lord of Chaos Fan Art winners. Unless I get A LOOOT of coffee in my system or something. MAN THE COFFEE MAKER, ALINA!

Super Special Thank You!

Our wonderful AQW Mods and Volunteers helped make the Chaos Fan Art Contest a HUGE success. We could not have gathered all 934 entries withtout their help, so when you see these guys and gals in game, be sure to give them a great big /hug and a joyful /cheer!

Asuka, Capn Cio, Eonaleth, Gjappy, Judge Acumen, Rarest, Soki, Tendou no Mazo, Tenzan, and Zereldo!

Alrighty, enough chit-chat; I know you’ve been waiting FOREVER for the winners, so let me get back to work so you can feast your eyes on Chaos Lord Escherion Fan Art!

Battle on!

xoxo Beleen

In-game Mod Hunt Update


Our in-game moderators are amazing... and more, they're volunteers! They do not get paid for the many hours they spend each week helping keep the game safe and fun for everyone. Because they're volunteers, real-life has to come first; that means that occasionally, we lose some team members to outside responsibilities.

When that happens, we start hunting for new mods. Earlier today, we shifted Veronica Dare, one of the game testers, onto the Mod team, as well. (Thanks, Veronica!) More current team members may be making that transistion over the next week or two. 

NEXT WEEK: Reens is going back to the thousands of applications from the last moderator hunt to pull more potential mods to interview. 

More Testers Needed!

Our in-game and website QA testers* are ALSO volunteers, and that means the same rules apply - every now and then, we lose some to more important real-life responsibilities.  We'll be hunting for more testers for both the game and web QA positions starting next week, as well.

Moderators vs Testers

For a long time, everyone with a gold name has been called a Mod (short for Moderator) but there are actually 4 kinds of people walking around with gold names. Mods, Game Testers, Help Team, and Devs (short for Developer).

  • Moderators: moderate the game, reading reports and keeping AQW safe and fun.
  • Developers: developers make the game itself - artists, programmers, writers, designers.
  • Testers/QA: testers take what the developers make and make sure it's not broken.
  • Help Team: read your emails and fix issues with accounts

Want to know more about the different AQW Team roles? Read THIS!

* QA stands for "quality assurance"

Drakath's Story, Pt 1

Relive the Champion of Chaos' Origin Story!

For years, you've battled Drakath, the Champion of Chaos. But how well do you know his story - what turned him from a young Prince into an all-powerful mage bent on achieving a single, world-shattering goal? 

The family that slays together, stays together.

This weekend, battle through Dreadhaven as Alden, aka a young King Alteon before he ascends to the throne. Then battle through Oaklore Forest as a young Princes Victoria, reliving Drakath's early years to experience the start of his journey towards Chaos!

Summer Token Shop

That's right, it's SUMMERTIME in the city (Of Battleon) and that means... a NEW seasonal token shop! This Friday, talk to Twilly in Battleon to get your Summer 2014 Token! That lets you open the Summer 2014 Token shop, where you'll find:
