AQ 3D Combat test!

Upgrade to help us test our FIRST EVER 3D MMO!

This Wednesday, the AQ3D servers will come back online with our first combat test. It will be available on the web for Members/Legends of AdventureQuest Worlds. The server side code has been completely written from the ground up. This combat system is able to do a lot more than the previous incarnation of AQ3D, BUT... this will be an ultra simple test featuring only basic attack. 

free 3D mmo

If you saw my Facebook video post, then you are probably excited to know that Mr. Trolluk is making a return! The new version of town is not ready yet, but we hope you will forgive the art and help us test the basic combat. We will be closely watching network, graphics, and server performance during this test. This is very much the foundation of the game. We hope you will be a part of it.

We Couldn't Do This Without Your Support

There are a ton of great reasons to renew your Membership in AdventureQuest Worlds… but right now the #1 reason is that your upgraded account will also give you PRIORITY ACCESS to the AQ3D Alpha Test... and the test is happening RIGHT NOW! Read all about our new 3D game on Artix's Design Notes at Artix.com!

In game Mod and Tester Hunt


Our in-game moderators and testers 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...but we ALSO get to bring on MORE new team members!

And that's why we're here today.

Not sure what the differences between Mods/Testers are, Cysero made a great FAQ.


Foreign Language Mods Needed!

Sora here.  I am looking for new mods for AQWorlds (and HeroSmash), and now is your chance to apply! One thing I have to stress - you MUST be 18+.  If you are under 18, if you don't include your age, or if you start with "I'm not 18 yet, but..." the application will not be considered.  Take a moment to read that last part again since every time we get players under 18 apply for some reason.  Reading and understanding directions are key elements.

This time around I am ONLY in need of moderators who are bilingual (or more) in English and one of the following languages:  Tagalog, Portuguese, Spanish.

Not bilingual?  Don't worry! You can either wait until the next call for Mods or you can apply to be a Tester (see below).

More Testers Needed!

We release new content EVERY WEEK! (Sometimes, multiple times a week!) If you are an experienced, friendly, and helpful AQWorlds player, know the game inside out, upside down, and right-side 'round, and are willing to spend countless hours playing the game to test, break, and help FIX it... then Stratos wants YOU!

Here is what we are looking for. Someone who is:

  • Experienced (this does NOT mean you have to be level 50+ but you should have played long enough to understand the game)
  • Knowledgeable (you should know how all the various parts of the game play)
  • A good communicator (if you cannot explain the bug you've experienced, we cannot fix it)
  • Easy to work with (our testers work hard and have fun. Since this is a volunteer position, we want everyone to enjoy what they do and who they work with)

What We Need From You

Whether your considering applying for a Moderator or Tester you'll need to do the following:

  1. Send an e-mail to AEvolunteers@battleon.com with the subject line AQW TESTER APPLICATION or AQW MOD APPLICATION.  If you don't the filter will delete your application.
  2. Include your real name, age (18+ only)
  3. Include your country of residence
  4. Include your AQW Game account name and email address
  5. Include your Master Account name and email address tied to the master account
  6. Include your Forum account name and email address if you have a forum account
  7. Include all Languages you speak/read
  8. Include a Resume (C.V.)  *please note we'd like the resume in English.
  9. TESTER ONLY Include the days and times you're available to help out! We really need some people who can help during Friday's release testing (afternoon to early evening server time)  but if you can't, don't worry - some types of testers can do their work at any hour.
  10. MOD ONLY A paragraph telling us what you think being a mod will mean and any experience you have that you think makes you a good candidate.

One application per person. If you apply for both put everything in one email. We will read and consider all applications, but cannot reply to them all. Make sure your application is correct before sending it, multiple or incomplete applications will be deleted. It will take some time for Stratos and myself to get through all the applications so please be patient.  If you are chosen to go through a further interview, we will contact you by e-mail. If we do not respond, we want to thank you for being awesome enough to volunteer!  Deadline for applications is Midnight server time Sunday February 15th!

For both applications we will be looking at your AQW account history, social networking and forum accounts if you have them, and arranging an in-game interview to talk one-on-one with potential candidates.

Good luck!

Meet the Magi with Zack

The stars of Za'nar: Impossibility!

Hello, heroes! I’m Zack Storch! You may have seen me in Battleon last year selling my armor, or on TBS’s reality TV show King of the Nerds. I’m very excited to be sharing my story, Za’nar: Impossibility with all of you! With the Za’nar Void Invasion coming up, I wanted to tell you about some of my characters. They’ll be helping you repel Jir’abin’s attack on Lore! You can learn even more about them in the novel, which is available now!

free mmo guest event zack storch sael
Sael Ageis
Dragon-shifting Wizard and co-leader of the Accord

In her nineteen years of life, Sael Ageis has accomplished a lifetime of accolades fighting in arena combat and when monsters organized during the War that threatened the planets of Za’nar one year ago. Her accomplishments during the War, as well as her father Qion’s political history, earned her a position of co-leadership over the newly founded interplanetary government, the Accord. 

Proud, arrogant and stubborn, she can seem closed off at first and speaks with an odd formality, but cares deeply about Za’nar and the people in her life. A well studied Wizard with the rank of Magi, Sael was able to master a ritual of transformation to take on the form of a Dragon for use in interplanetary flight, and invented swift “Combat Runes” to use her icy attacks more quickly.

Klyde Vance
Blade Sorcerer of Earth

An eighteen year old man who met Sael while she was on an investigative assignment to Earth. Imaginative and prone to day dreams, learning that his fantasies of magic and aliens were real came as a welcome shock! After having her bring him to Za’nar, he discovered a knack for Blade Sorcery, or intuitive Magic inspired by the use of weapons and objects as channels.

With a new world opened up to him, he’s found himself questioning if anything is impossible. Now he uses conjured weapons to launch shockwaves, make broils of fire and send waves of water at those who would threaten his friends.

Hyperactive, Flying Earthling Sorcerer

With a difficult past and no family to rely on, Fae found strength in her best friends Klyde and Tyler. Adopting an upbeat personality has helped her overcome her past, while refusing to use her last name helped her be her own self and put her unhealthy parents behind her.

She has an interest in fencing, which helps hone her reflexes. A brilliant chemistry student, Fae is always positive and smiling, and has a large sweet tooth. She always wished Magic existed, so when Klyde and Sael brought her to Za’nar, she was ready to try and learn! Fae is a powerful Sorcerer, and has an affinity for Darkness Magics.

free mmo zack storch daz acer
Daz Acer
Theatrical Wizard and Elemental Archer

Orphaned at a young age, Daz was adopted by Sael’s father Qion. Sael and Daz have always been close, and studied together at Reald University for High Magic. Extremely confident in composure, Daz has a flair for the theatrical and often thinks of life as a show. When the two-year monster uprising of the War began, he fought alongside Sael to protect the planets of Za’nar.

With the intuitive ability for Light Magics and Healing from birth, Daz also learned the Wizardry and Runes to fight with Elemental arrows, and be well-rounded with other elements.

free mmo zack storch guest event

Hailing from the small town of Ilis on the heavily forested planet Daram, seventeen year old Rath Halon has simple goals in life: finish school, surpass her father’s social position, have her name recorded in the annals of Magical history for some grand accomplishment or discovery, and become the captain of Vane Rajid’s royal guard--perhaps her goals aren’t so humble!

Rath doesn’t seek an adventurer’s life, but it manages to find her. Expecting to graduate with the rank of Magi at the top of her class, Rath is a very attentive student. She often worries she’s said something wrong and regrets her words, then apologizes or makes an effort to retract them. She fights with her kadjir's, thrown bladed hoops used in Magical ritual that can cloak themselves in Elemental forces like Fire and Lightning.

free mmo guest event zack storch

At thirty-four years old by Earth years, Zail is the provost of Reald University for High Magic. He often moves his hands when he speaks, and finds humor in small things.

In the worlds of Za’nar, there are two main divisions of Mages: Sorcerers and Wizards. Sorcerers cast Magics with their bodies, while Wizards make use of precisely drawn Runes of Void Energy. At Reald University, Zail and his teachers educate students on the principals and Runes of Magic.

free mmo guest event zack storch
Dragon of Darkness

Having lost strength in a mysterious occurrence three-million years ago, Jir’abin resides on the Void Plane, making plans for his return to Za’nar. By creating his Shades and having them gather Inert Presence, or latent Magical worth held in every being, he seeks to regain his lost power to be able to manifest in Za’nar.

Having become obsessed over the years, he’s willing to do anything to accomplish what he not only sees as a noble goal, but a heroic one.
