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-"
Galanoth: BIGGERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
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

Lord of Chaos Fan Art winners will soon be announced!

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

As you are reading this, I am feverishly setting up another Design Notes post for the 1st Lord of Chaos Fan Art winners. Then tomorrow, I will announce the 2nd Lord of Chaos winners; Wednesday I’ll announce 3rd LoC winners; and Thursday will be 4th LoC winnars (as time and sanity allows, of course.)

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

  • 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)

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! WARNING: this is only the FIRST part of Drakath's story... you'll need to return NEXT Friday to see how it ends!

We have a TON of things for you to do tonight!

  • Drakath Story release: /Join Dreadhaven to play as Alden (destined to become Alteon, Swordhaven's greatest King) and then his daughter Princess Victoria 
  • Two Challenge Fights: Take on the Dreadhaven General in /dreadfight and Ultra Dreadhaven General in /ultradread for a chance to get permanent versions of the full armor sets!* 
  • Summer Token 2014 Shop: Talk to Twilly in Battleon to get your token and unlock the gear! 
  • Chaos Rep Shop Update: Find the Dreadknight armor in the Chaos Rep shop! 
  • War Boss Coming SOON: The Attack on Battleon War Boss will release... and you will learn your TRUE identity! As soon as the war meter hits 100%... you will FINALLY know who you REALLY are!

You'll need your friends to take down THIS boss!

* Ultradread battle drops the Legend-only version of the set, which gives more XP and does more damage against Chaos! The normal Dreadhaven General battle drops a version of the gear for ALL players!

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:

  • Fire Elemental Armor
  • Burning Flame of Destruction Cape
  • Bejeweld Flame of Destruction Cape
  • Beach Ball Basher Mace
  • Blue Moglinberry Smootie Mace
  • The Coolest Swimsuit Armor
  • Floppy Sunhat Helm
  • Real Cool Helm
  • Buckets o' Fun Helm
  • Buckets o' Fun Locks

In-game Mod Hunt Update

New Mods and More Mods!

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: Dreadhaven

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? This Friday, play as Alden, a young warrior destined to be the King of Swordhaven, and a young Princes Victoria as you quest to uncover the secrets of Drakath's past!

The family that slays together, stays together.

Updated 2014 Summer Release Schedule

It's NEVER easy to predict just where Chaos will strike... or how it will wreak havoc on schedules! The release calendar has been updated to reflect the rest of the summer:

  • July 18: Drakath’s Story: Dreadhaven
  • July 25: Drakath’s Story: Champion of Chaos
  • August 1: Death’s Judgement, Gravelyn’s Choice
  • August 8: Shadowfall Rises
  • August 15: The Final Confrontation
  • August 22: Into Chaos: Chaos Lord Gauntlet

Free Wheel of Doom Tickets Arrive Tonight

If you spun the Wheel of Doom or Destiny between July 1st and 5 PM server time today, later tonight you'll receive 5 FREE Fortune Tickets to spin the Wheels of Doom or Destiny. If you're a Legend, you'll receive 25 free Fortune Tickets!

The first batch of rare Wheel gear will also return, and with a higher drop rate! (As promised when we cycled them out a few months back.) We're getting a lot of questions about what gear will go rare from the Wheel. Keep an eye out for Design Notes later this week with more answers!

Attack on Battleon: PvE Battles This Week

Earlier today, Yorumi released a patch to PvP that should help the team balance in the Battleon war, but it hasn't done enough from what you guys say. With that in mind, he'll continue looking at the issue (which involves Flash ignoring basic code structure), but in the mean-time we are going to release a PvE version of the war.

That way, if you are having difficulty joining the PvP rooms or just prefer fighting monsters instead, you'll be able to contribute to the war effort!
