Unwrapping Holiday Cheer

Fellow AQW player Submeobi sent me pink presents!

Oh Submeobi, you always bring me so much joy AND bring me the best gifts ever! You never cease to amaze me, and your sweet birthday card and warm holiday wishes (plus cozy Santa hats) have made this the greatest December to remember! Thank you. Thank you! THANK YOU!!!!

And this is why I love everyone here at Artix Entertainment—and that includes players like you, too! We are all one big happy family, and I couldn’t ask for more love and merriment from the best extended family known to mankind. Thank you Submeobi for showering me with so much pink and making Artix’s eyes bleed rainbows—that is perhaps the greatest gift of all >:D

And thank YOU for being a part of the Artix Entertainment family <3 We could not have achieved all of this without the support from our magnificent Members and devoted AdventureCoins buyers, and everyone here at the Secret Underground Lab is blessed to have you by our side. You guys and gals are amazing. True story.

On behalf of the AdventureQuest Worlds team, we wish you sincere holiday wishes and look forward to battling alongside you into the New Year 2015!

Stay warm. Stay pink. Stay positive. And stay epic, my lovely heroes!

Battle ON!

xoxo Beleen =D

Cryomancer Class Preview

Legends: give us your feedback on the skill lineup!

Hey, Legends! Want to help us create the new Cryomancer Class? Now's your chance! Talk to Ragnar in Battleon and grab the CryoMancer Temp Class, then run around and battle your opponents brains out to see if you like the skills we've got on it!

If you do, fantastic! If you don't, let us know why, and what you'd like to see changed. Not balanced? Suggest buffs or nerfs! This is your chance to have a permanent impact on one of our classes in development.

You can grab the temp version of the class for 0 gold now*, or get your gloves on a permanent version for 2000 ACs. The Dark version of the Cryomancer gear is a Legend-only exclusive, too!

Cryomancer holiday class test in a free fantasy mmoAQWorlds hero Holiday and crew take Cryomancer Class for a test-battle


  • Wizard and warrior enhancements appear to be particularly useful.
  • Using the class properly, you're able to survive almost forever. The mana costs are high to compensate. It is incredibly survivable. If you alternate between the heal and haste debuff, you can last for a long, LONG time.
  • This class definitely requires strategic management of your mana, but you should be able to take out lower-end mobs pretty well.
  • We may be lowering the mana cost on shatter and flashfreeze or buffing damage.
  • Freeze and Frozen Tears will not be buffed. May need to be nerfed depending on feedback.
  • Update: we just buffed the damage of FrostFreeze when you use the special effect and reduced mana cost by 5.

*The temp class will turn into an exclusive Mini-Cryomancer pet once testing is over as our way of saying "thanks" for testing!

The Queen of Monsters' Frostval

The World Breaks as the Ancients Return!

After the Champion of Chaos let the Queen of Monsters loose, refugees from across the world flee to a new continent as the land grows colder and winter storms rage. Fight alongside Syrrus the Astromancer at the shattered Tower of Winds. Build a planetary gate that will allow a mysterious warrior mage's army to journey across spacetime and add their blades to the battle!

The WorldBreaker Rises as twilight falls across the world.

Journey to a NEW continent to begin the introdution to our new storyline, "Ancient Evils," as the Queen of Monsters gathers strength and begins to build the army she'll use to conquer our world! With 35 quests to complete, new lands to explore, and 7 elemental starstones to locate, you've got more do than just save our winter holiday... 

Quibble Coinbiter returns Friday!

Past, present, and future Frostval items freeze the insides of Quibble Coinbiter's pack... and YOUR inventory! AQWorlds' very own time-traveling sales moglin arrives in Battleon this Friday, December 19th, with gear from across space AND time! But he won't be there long, so you'll want to dig through his chest of never-before-seen-slightly-used items and rares while you can!

FrostSpawn Warrior and AstroMancer armor!

Announcing the Coolest Class: CryoMancer!

Just in time for snowstorms, blizzards, and BIG boss battles, we've got the CryoMancer Class arriving this Friday! You can get your winter gloves on this supercool class for 2000 AdventureCoins or through farming for tokens from a Daily Quest. (Members will be able to earn tokens twice as fast!)

  • Cryomancer Class (Earned version, 84 Glacera Tokens)
  • Cryomancer Class (AC version, 2000 ACs)

Cryomancer Class Armor

Once the CryoMancer Class releases, speak to Syrrus Terminer in the Tower of Winds OR talk to Quibble in Battleon! Both will have daily quests that rewards you with Glacera Tokens when you complete them. Non-members can earn up to 14 a week but there is a special Member version of the quest that will reward Members with up to 21 Tokens per week.

MEMBERS: You will only be able to do ONE of the quests per day. MAKE SURE YOU DO THE MEMBER VERSION!

As always there will be an AC version of the class for those who don't have the time to invest in earning the class for free.

Frostval Limited Quantity Packages Next Tuesday!

Starting next Tuesday, December 23rd at 10:30 AM EST, our Frostval Limited Quantity Packages will go on sale! There are a limited number of packages, so if you want to snag these ice-cold collectibles to boost your rare collector rep, read on to see what's coming!

Break Bones, Get Presents

Destroy the Frostval Fiend to Unlock Treasure

From Travelers leaving the Frozen Wastes come rumors of a vast treasure, waiting for those strong enough to take it. But, say the travelers, no one who has set out to claim it has ever returned… and no sign of them has been found. Is the treasure so grand, the luxury so rich, that they never wish to leave? Or is something darker, deadlier, lying in wait at the heart of the hoard?

Will YOU survive the hunt?

The Bonebreaker Adventure Badge is LIVE!

This week, we're introducing a new type of upgrade package: the BoneBreaker ADVENTURE package! I REALLY love this idea, because instead of just getting an armor set when you upgrade, you unlock an entire zone with a full map, quest chain, boss battles, merge shop, and monster drops! 

Bonebreaker Adventure Pack Expansion MMO RPG AQWorldsSee all the details in this post.

Starting tonight, find the upgrade package available on our website, portal site, and in-game! When you get the BoneBreaker package for $34.95 USD, immediately unlock: 

  • A full map zone in /bonebreak
  • A new boss, quest chain, and a daily farming quest
  • Boss Drops and a merge shop full of gear
  • 3 armor sets, weapons, and helms
  • 3 months of membership
  • And 2000 AdventureCoins!

Beleen's Birthday Gear is Here

Flame Dragon Warrior Class


Hi all! Asuka here (Usually you're reading posts from me, TODAY IT'S WRITING ONE) and today we'll be learning the brand new class for AQ:Dragon Founders, the Flame Dragon Warrior, the Class you can unlock when you become a Founder in our newest mobile game, AdventureQuest: Dragons! .

Founder comes with 200 Dragon Keys which you can use to unlock new dragon eggs to hatch and buy some upper tier powers, or even buy gems for your dragon to buy more upgrades and increase its power! (You can also earn keys by completing dragons and watching daily sponsored videos but that's much slower). 

BONUS: We are already planning an expansion to the game which will include leaderboards and a new dragon! 

What is the Flame Dragon Warrior Class?

The Flame Dragon Warrior is a VERY powerful class designed for people who become a founder at AE's new game, AQ:Dragons. The skillset is extremely useful for either boss fights (like taking down dragons), pvp (slaying DragonSlayers) or just everyday use farming (in the Dragon's Lair) .


You can unlock the Class when you get the founder package in AQ:Dragons. The Class comes with an armor, sword, spear, dragon help, epic cape, wings and a special character page badge.

Sit back, relax and lets have a good read.

Flame Dragon Warrior Class Skills

Auto Attack: Pretty basic. 2 second cooldown.
You need to be able to swing around your weapon somehow.

Fire Dragon's Roar: 10 Mana, 4 second cooldown
Blast 3 targets with flame to deal fire damage.
Builds stacks of Dragon's Roar which affects other abilities.

This is the ability you want to keep stacked. Stacking this ability will allow you other skills (Which we will go over) an extra kick to them

Burn Of Akriloth: 25 Mana, 15 second cooldown
Akriloth grants you the power to do a 400% DoT for 10 seconds, with a 25% chance to stun your opponents for 6 seconds with Smothering Smoke, Stacks of Dragon's Roar increase damage.

Yes, all those words and numbers are correct. You can get an extremely high DoT AND do a pretty nifty amount of damage too and even a good chance for stuns. This skill is really good for beating down something (or someone) really quick without hassle. 
Note: The DoT CAN be applied even without stacks of Dragon's Roar, BUT YOU WILL NEED THE STACKS if you wish to do damage as well.

Dragon Strength: 20 Mana, 12 second cooldown
A Moderate Damage Skill.  Applies Ablaze which increases Strength by 25% for 8 seconds. If stacks of Dragon's Roar are present, removes all stacks of Dragon's Roar and applies Extra Defense which reduces all damage taken by 40% for 15 seconds.

Feeling a tad too squishy? Want to buff yourself up like a (small) tank? With stacks of Dragon's Roar, your defense power grows AS WELL as your strength! It's a GREAT thing if you want to survive a few more hits and make sure you can take your opponant down. Goes great with a healer.

Fire Dragon's Scales & Dragon's BloodRank 4 Passives

The magic of dragon scales gives you 30% spell resistance.
The power of dragons blood gives you 30% endurance increase

Neat little passives. Helps you survive more. Not much to say about it.

Burning Rage: 30 Mana, 15 second cooldown

DESTROY with the power of your rage and damage! Also applies a 350% DoT over 8 seconds.
Double the DoTs, double the fun! The fun WILL be doubled with this skill! This is your boomshot, the skill you *wisely* use as you don't wanna waste your mana compltely (I'm bad with mana at times...) Anyways, as well as getting a decent strike off, you also get another DoT just to be more of a bother. Works quite nicely with Dragon's Strength. 

Rank 10 Passive: Dragon's Burn
Increases your DoTs by 30%

Do you like your DoTs? Of course you do. Do you want to make them even better? OF COURSE YOU DO! Similar to Dragon Shinobi's Rank 10 passive, Dragon's Burn will give your DoTs even BIGGER damage ranges! it's a PERMANENT increase!

Overall, you can survive pretty well with the class. Your power can be used for high damage and DoT or tank it out, taking hits from everything that decides to come your way. Do let us know what you think too! Anywho, Asuka out!
