Lost Knight's Eternity Blade

Tower of Doom: the Lost Knight's Tale

It is known as the Tower of Doom.

It grew from the ground over the course of a hundred years, a dark, twisting  spire of rancid flesh that reached 50 stories into the sky. At first it was merely a curiously which cast a shadow over the land (and a widening blanket of morbid odors). But soon it was apparent that the Tower was poisoning the land around it. Brave axe-wielders were sent to dismantle the Tower, but for every gash they rendered upon its surface, another layer of fetid matter grew to heal it.

An opening was discovered in the Tower at ground level, and it was decided that it may need to be destroyed from the inside out. Many warriors and mages entered, and found the bowels of the Tower to contain vast collections of the world's most terrible beasts. The Tower defended itself by raising its own army within it, and rarely did an adventurer escape with their life.

At last there arrived the legendary knight Sir Tendeth, whose expoits included defeating three dracoliches at once and saving one of King Alteon's daughters from a band of cannibalistic highwaymen. He was the most admired fighter in the realm at the time, and if anyone could make their way to the top of the Tower and find its source of power, it was Sir Tendeth.

He carried with him the fabled Eternity Blade, an ancient sword said to be forged using the metal from the heart of a falling star. With this blade, Sir Tendeth chopped, sliced, and gashed his way to the top of the Tower of Doom, with his Moglin squire Ingvald following close behind. But at the top of the Tower, Sir Tendeth discovered a terrifying creature that called itself Creel. The honorable knight fought bravely, but succumbed to Creel's attacks, and the Eternity Blade was lost in the bowels of the Tower.

Only Ingvald made it out alive, a shuddering, blubbering mess. All he could say at first was, "The Tower is Creel, and Creel is the Tower!".

The Tower of Doom extends 50 stories up, and 50 stories below the ground. Somewhere within, the Eternity Blade waits to be found. And the at the top of the Tower, Creel awaits his... or her... or its next victim.

All Adventurers of Lore must enter the Tower of Doom and take on this challenge, before the evil spreads further and can no longer be held in check. Find the Eternity Blade, destroy Creel, or do both, and go down in history like Sir Tendeth! (Just be sure to stay alive!)

Conquer the 100 Levels of the Tower of Doom!

As the sun sets tonight, unsheathe your blades and speak to Zoshi the Monster-Hunter in the /towerofdoom. Prepare yourselves, because once you enter the beast, you'll find:

  • 50 levels of increasingly-difficult monsters and minibosses as you climb towards:
  • The Dread boss, Creel the All-Knowing
  • 50 MORE levels of increasingly-difficult monsters and minibosses as you descend towards:
  • Slugbutter the All-Consuming
  • Unlock the Quest for the Eternity Blade* at level 30 and slay bosses until you recover it
  • Slay monsters and bosses to gather resources to craft your rewards

Fantasy Hero Package Pass

Unlock ALL the Fantasy Hero Gear With One Pass!

We have been getting a lot of emails and tweets from players who are maxed out on ACs, have years worth of membership, or simply want to buy the gear that comes with our special packages. In response to that request, we are trying a new package: the special package pass. 

Wolfhound Warrior, Dragon Emperor, Dark Warlock sets

Buying a special package pass for $60 USD will unlock ALL of the gear from the Wolfhound Warrior AND the other two packages in the series once they are released, PLUS an exclusive character page badge!Once those packages go live in over the next several months, anyone who bought the pass will automatically get them in their badge shop in the book of Lore. 

You can find the Fantasy Hero pass in the "Special Offers" section of the in-game payment window, on the upgrade page, or on the Portal.

Why Get the Fantasy Hero Pass?

Good question! This is something very new for AQWorlds, but implementing it allows us to let many players who just want gear to unlock it without having to about missing deadlines. (We get a TON of requests from players around the world asking us to extend a package deadline for a day, a week, or a month because someone is going to miss it.)

The Wolfhound waits...

You would also have to buy 3 years worth of membership (that is $180 USD) to get all of this gear with the set-up above, but if you're a gear collector, a HUGE Game of Thrones fan like me (#TeamTyrion), or maxed out on upgrades, then this is going to be the way you want to go. 

Fantasy Hero Package Pass Items

You'll unlock all 11 Wolfhound Warrior items right now, and as we release the next two sets, you will automatically see those appear in your Fantasy Hero Pass badge shop (found in your Book of Lore)!

The full Wolfhound Warrior set comes with:

  • Dire Wolfhound Warrior Armor
  • Deadly Wolfhound Warrior Armor
  • Wolfhound Warrior Armor
  • The Wolves’ Fury Blade
  • Wolfhound Fangs Daggers
  • Wolfhound’s Pike
  • Wolfhound’s Crown
  • Glowing Wolf Crown
  • Shaggy Wolf Hair
  • Shaggy Wolf Beard
  • Wolfhound’s Pelt

When the Dragon Emperor Package releases, you'll unlock:

  • 1st tier Dragon Emperor armor
  • 2nd tier Dragon Emperor armor
  • 3rd tier Dragon Emperor armor
  • 1st weapon
  • 2nd weapon
  • 3rd weapon
  • Cape
  • 1st helm
  • 2nd helm
  • 3rd helm
  • and maybe more, depending on how many additional items we create for the sets!

When the Dark Warlock Package releases, you'll unlock:

  • 1st tier Dark Warlock armor
  • 2nd tier Dark Warlock armor
  • 3rd tier Dark Warlock armor
  • 1st weapon
  • 2nd weapon
  • 3rd weapon
  • Cape
  • 1st helm
  • 2nd helm
  • 3rd helm
  • and maybe more, depending on how many additional items we create for the sets!

* You will get an exclusive badge with the Fantasy Hero Pass, not the Wolfhound Warrior Ultra badge.

A Big Step Back

This is One Tall Tale!

Sorry to have missed the last few throwbacks everyone, between New York City for choir and bronchitis, I’ve had my hands pretty full.

TBT1Sidenote: When going to NYC to sing with your favorite composer, always stalk his twitter for his favorite hot sauce. ALWAYS.

Speaking of Stalking

It’s story time! Besides monster slaying and quest looting, finding time to entertain BattleOn’s youth with daring stories of past adventures is still a priority. If you haven’t already, check in with Yulgar over at his Inn and click Giant’s Tale to begin your biggest retelling yet!

TBT2

Jack and the Bean-NOT

Living as a bean farmer on the outskirts of town, Jack never had the easy life, especially with this year’s bean crop producing only a few handfuls. A stranger sensing Jack’s troubles, decided to take pity on him and trade his lowly crop for not just a regular Chickencow, but a MAGICAL CHICKENCOW!

TBT3
Just when things seemed almost normal. BOOM CYSERO

Has Cy been sitting there the whole time? Who knows, but either way he’s here now to interrupt your wicked storytelling whenever possible. After attempting to calm Cysero, you tell the children how Jack decided to well... um… plant the Chickencow in his field? Never said Jack was a normal child. Following fairytale fable, isn’t this the point where the magic beanstalk should appear. NOPE! I hope a spotted ladder rising from the grounds rungs a bell, because that’s definitely what happened.

Don’t Look Down

This ladder didn’t just steal the show, it stole the whole town! Turns out the giant really likes his own personal entourage, especially when that group is no bigger than his fist. Make your way through a lawn bigger than a forest in order to rescue the stolen citizens and right Jack’s wrongs. Watch out though, after you claw your up to the townsfolk holding cell, your cage guard encounter will be far from purr-fect.

TBT4

Feeling Blue

Beating up the giant’s cat is looking in the wrong neck of the woods for the key to the cage. Turns out that the true location is where else, but resting around the giant’s neck!

DUH DUH DUNNNNNNN

TBT5

How does one take on the gigantic task of key stealing? Why by a visit to smuurvilest village around of course! It’s funny though, turns out the Smuurvilans don’t like it when you slap them black and blue for their potion ingredients, so be careful when gathering regents, as these villagers pack a punch!

Roach Racers

After only a mild brawl with the citizens of Smuurvil, it looks like you have all the ingredients necessary for mixing. Finally an easy task, all you have to do is scuttle your way to the giant’s soup across the dinner table. Sorry hero, but swat that idea out of easy out of your head! There’s another gang that rules this dinner table, and the Roach Racers mean business. Don’t bug the Racing Roaches Gang for safe the passage though, the only way across this table is though a crazy-crafted kart race!

TBT6

Soup Sadness

If you can beat the bugs at their own game, it’s time for a stealthy soup drop off. If all goes correctly, a giant sized soup faceplant and key are in your sights. SPLASH! That sounded like a soup bowl to the face, but wait, WHERE’S THE KEY?

FE FI FO FUM WHY IN THE WORLD DID YOU KNOCK OUT MY SON

TBT7

The real master of the house has revealed himself, get ready for the fight to save the town and yourself! Don’t stop now hero, the key is within your sights! Who know’s what will happen when the dust clears, but I guarantee it won’t be something you’d suspect!

Who Needs a Golden Harp?

What’s any giant house raid without equally giant rewards? Beyond monster drops that make a golden goose go green with envy, you have an entire roach rubbish pile to raid. Happy reward rummaging!

Only a Small Summary

The hardest part of these posts is condensing such an amazing storyline into only a few paragraphs. Reading a release may be fun, but is nothing like playing it, so get out there heros and good luck conquering or reconquering the Giant’s Domain! As always post on the forums or tweet me @ACWOAE with comments or ideas for the next Throwback!
