Friday: Quest for the Cure

Darkness Falls as Undead Dragons Rise

As more and more dragons fall to this mysterious illness, a new horror is rising! Any dragons slain by the disease return to unlife…as zombies! Work with Artix and Galanoth to find a cure for those affected by the zombie plague, then partner with Warlic to hunt down the disease’s source, because what he’s learned spells destruction for the purity of elemental dragon magic… EVERYWHERE!

Here there be zombies!

Artix, Galanoth, and Warlic, OH MY!

Dragons are dying in Etherstorm... and the ones who haven't been returned to the DragonPlane for purification are rising again as zombies! 

Dragon Physiology 101: Zombie Edition

That's not the worst of it - others have disappeared completely! But in the chaos caused by the infections and quarantines, no one has noticed. This is a very VERY bad thing! But before you can investigate THAT, you're going to have to travel around Lore with Artix, Galanoth, and Warlic to seek out the cause of the plague... and if Warlic is right, we are ALL going to be DOOMED!

Just remember, Heroes, when plague zombies rise in Etherstorm this Friday, just remember...

More LQS Previews are Here!

The first-ever Limited Quantity Sets arrive in AQWorlds this Friday night... and earlier today we released previews of more LQS gear! Read the Design Notes to see all the prices, timetables, and quantities!

How Do Limited Quantity Sets Work?

Limited Quantity Sets will work VERY differently from the way Limited Quantity Shops did in the past, though the core idea - a limited quantity of gear - will remain the same.

  1. Log into a special LQS webpage on AQ.com (not into the game!) 
  2. Purchase the set using either ACs or gold
  3. Log into AQW and find your set badge in the Book of Lore (no character page badge attached.)
  4. Get all the items in the badge shop for 0 ACs (yay free storage!)

Actual prices and quantities are listed above.

Amounts will restock throughout the weekend  so that everyone gets a fair chance at the gear. (That means we will only release a fraction of the total amount at first.)

Where to Find the Sets

Check the Design Notes, hompage, and upgrade page for the webpage where you can buy the sets! You'll also be able to log into AQW and talk to Khuddar Khamundi, the Black Market Vendor, will return to Battleon with a link to the webpage.

Friday: Limited Quantity Sets

Rare Collectors... Start Your Engine!

If you're a fan of EpicDuel, then you already know what about Limited Quantity Shops. Some people love them, some people (the ones who forget to set their alarms) hate them, but they give those who like collecting rare gear a chance to grab (and display) a shining trophy that only a select few will possess!

The Glacier Lord is a pretty cool guy.

How Do Limited Quantity Sets Work?

Limited Quantity Sets will work VERY differently from the way Limited Quantity Shops did in the past, though the core idea - a limited quantity of gear - will remain the same.

  1. Log into a special LQS webpage on AQ.com (not into the game!) 
  2. Purchase the set using either ACs or gold
  3. Log into AQW and find your set badge in the Book of Lore (no character page badge attached.)

Test page: actual prices/quantities not shown.

Amounts will restock throughout the weekend (look for a schedule tomorrow or Wednesday) so that everyone gets a fair chance at the gear. (That means we will only release a fraction of the total amount at first.)*  The numbers in the picture above are NOT final.

* Example: if we have 20000 free player gold sets, 5000 would release Friday morning, 5000 Friday night, 5000 Saturday morning, and 5000 Saturday night.

Will the Sets Be Legend, Free Player, or AC?

We will have:

  • Glacier Lord armor set for ACs from Dage
  • Lava Lord armor set for ACs from Dage 
  • 1 Legend-only set with Battlepet for gold from Tyronius
  • 1 free-player gold pet and weapons  from Memet

You can buy the Legend-only and free-player gear with gold on the webpage, but inside the shop it will be 0 AC for free storage!

Will There Be Enough Items For Everyone?

No, but with the multiple restocks, your chances of getting an item are now much better! The number of items will vary depending on the item (the lowest quantity items being the most rare)

We are looking into some of our other Limited Time Items, AC items and Seasonal Rares, seeing how many were purchased, balancing that against server traffic at the time and coming up with what we believe to be a reasonable quantity for the LQS items in most cases.

Will Quantities Update Automatically?

No, but if you purchase an item from the shop or revisit the page, you will see the updated amounts. If you see only a few left, click quickly... the LQS might already be sold out!


You see the updated amount after you purchase.

When Will The First LQS Be Launched?

This Friday at 6:30 PM Server Time (Eastern Standard Time or GMT  -5) Khuddar Khamundi, the Black Market Vendor, will return to Battleon with a link to the webpage. The URL will also be posted in the Design Notes, on the homepage, and on the upgrade page. This week's Etherstorm release might arrive before or after that.

I Thought LQS's Were Never Returning?

First off, thank you for staying with us since we made that announcement in 2012! We did not think they ever would, either**. But as we made server improvements and brainstormed ways to solve the biggest issues you guys had with the idea, we wanted to try again... with a twist. 

Though there will always be a debate between rare lovers/haters (because that is a matter of personal preference), we've taken great pains to address the rest of your concerns:

  • No logging into the game, so no login lag jams 
  • You're buying sets, not individual items, so people can't buy/sell items over and over to keep others from getting them
  • The quantites will restock multiple times, so no "timezone favoritism"

A lot of you guys REALLY want limited quantity gear to return (about 70% based on the poll we did), but I did not want to do that if we didn't have solutions for the main issues from the past. So we have tried to solve them as best we could. (All credit for the new coding goes to Captain Rhubarb!)

** The leftover gear from previous Limited Quantity Shops will not return. New system, new gear.

A Plague of Dragons

Tonight: return to Etherstorm to save the dragons!

Darkness has fallen over Etherstorm. The elemental dragons are dying mysteriously, and no magic is able to save them! Search through the homecity of the Elemental Dragons to discover where this plague came from and how it infects them.

The Deadliest Plague the Dragons have ever seen!

Time is running out, and as the dragons die one by one, so does Lore’s future! Make sure you've finished the Desoloth the Final storyline that begins in /firestorm, then hurry to /join dragonhame. Once you're there, work with Drakor and the townspeople of Dragonhame to discover who - or what - is killing them before dragons outside of Etherstorm are infected, too!

Defend Dragonhame while Warlic is away!

Tonight:DragonFlight's Reach Blade

Coming tonight, talk to Aniya in Dragonhame to get your own DragonFlight's Reach blade for 1000 AdventureCoins from her weapon shop for a limited time. Within this blade dwells the spirit of an ancient dragonmaster... wield it well to save the dragons of Etherstorm! 

The sword will evolve as the Dragon's Plague story continues. Next week: horns! 3rd week: OMG Dragon Buff! You can also find a TON of new gear (and your old favorites from the original storyline) in the Dragonhame shops! Run around town to meet the townspeople and find out about life serving dragons!

You'll find the Amethyst Dragon Wander set and more dropping from the boss in tonight's release! If you're going to save Etherstorm, you're going to need to fight hard and fast, because time and plague wait for no hero! (The set below, though, will be available for ALL players forever!)

  • Il’Lar’s Armors
  • Aniya’s Weapons 
  • Phelan’s Brews 
  • Sh’Ariel’s Helms
  • Kl’ing’s Capes 

New Wheel of Doom Drops and Merge Shop Gear!

Find the Dark Exosuit Binsuko set in the Wheel of Doom and Destiny merge shops! This set will be around for several months, so you've got time to save up the Fortune Potions to get it! 

The armor costs 150 Fortune Potions, but because Legends get a free spin on the Wheel EVERY DAY, hundreds of Legendary Heroes already have the gear! The entire set will be around for several months, so if you don't have enought potions NOW, you can save up for them!

Also added tonight:

  • Twig's Undead Fwish (will leave that the same time as the Dark ExoSuit Binsuko set)
  • Treasure Chest Keys (drop from the Wheels, not in the merge shop)

The 1% drops in the Wheels of Doom and Destiny will change out NEXT Friday, so now's your last chance to get them for many months (they will return early next year)!

Don't miss this week's other releases:

Plague Descends on Etherstorm

A Young Dragon's First Flight

Every dravix, dravir, human, and dragon gathered on the plains outside Dragonhame. It was always a grand day when a young dragon was ready to take its first flight alone. Once the dragonling landed safely, the celebrations would begin and go on for days.

The first rite of passage would be over, and the dragonling would begin learning the magics unique to its element. The exhilaration and rush of joy a dragonling feels on its first solo flight is something they never forget. It is a day they will remember for the rest of their lives.


An'Desi's First Flight

Run run run faster faster

Gotta push harder harder harder...

Go UP UP UP! Gotta FLY!

Higher... Higher... HIGHER! 

I - I FLYING!!! 

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Love it love it love it Big dragon is ME!!!

...

.....

*cough* 

 *cough cough wheeze* .......

Oh oh. I... dizzy. Head spins.

Tail spins.

World spins.

*COUGH* throat hurts lungs hurt wings hurt I hurts

shake it off gotta fly stay high ...

I - I FALLING!

Do not like this too fast too fast

falling falling spin too much

oh no oh no do not feel good

Feel... BAD! So much hurt

Can't stop gotta stop i hurts can't fly

Falling too fast where is momma?

Momma? *whimper* I falling need catch!

*whimpercough* ... Mooooooooommaaaaaa! 


As the crowd below watched, An'Desi climbed higher and higher, growing smaller against the vast expanse of sky. They townspeople laughed and cheered, congratulating An'Desi's teachers and kin... Until one young Dravir shouted, pointing skyward.

Silence fell as the crowd watched An'Desi begin to descend. It was too soon for him to return. As he fell faster, the dragons on the plain launched themselves into the air, straining to gain enough altitude to slow the fledgling's fall.


The crowd dispersed quickly, shocked into near-silence, save for the murmurs of fear and sadness. The healers crowded around, staring at the once-healthy dragonling. His scales were dull, and a rotten stench rose from his wings. 

From celebration to quarantine

The healers gazed at each other in fear.

In a whisper, Ll'Lara, Dragonhame's Master Healer, announced the diagnosis: "... Plague has come to Dragonhame."

More Goodies in the Tower of Doom

Want to glow in the dark?

On Friday, you collected Monster Trophies in the Tower of Doom to trade for Zoshi's gorgeous Marrowfiend sets. But those sets were based around the look and feel of the top half of the tower. What about all of the people who liked the dark caves of the lower half, filled with glowing stones and fungus?

I got your glowing stones and fungus right here.

To fill this dark void, we've added these two new sets. The Bioluminous gear, worn by the gentleman on the right, can all be purchased from the Monster Hunter merge shop for Monster Trophies, and is available to all players. For those who prefer a fancier look, the glowier (and Legend-only) Bioluminous Amarita set, shown on the right, is available as drops from the bosses in the lower half of the tower.

In the Monster Hunter merge shop:

  • Bioluminous Armor
  • Bioluminous Cloak
  • Bioluminous Hood
  • Bioluminous Mask

Dropping from the bosses:

  • Bioluminous Amarita Armor - drops from Slugbutter
  • Bioluminous Amarita Cloak - drops from Dread Avatar
  • Bioluminous Amarita Hood - drops from Dread Fang
  • Bioluminous Amarita Blades - drops from Dread Warrior

Wheel Of Doom Gear Changes

Coming Soon: New 1% Drops in the Wheel of Doom

Deep in the forests near Doomwood, you'll find the Carnival of Fortune, a place of magic, mystery, mayhem... and luck! Spin the Wheel of Doom or the Wheel of Destiny for a chance to win exclusive prizes, Potions, gold, and a chance for the Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness!

Not sure how this all works? Check out our Wheel of Doom FAQ!

How to get to the Wheel of Doom/Destiny?

  • Click on the Carnival of Fortune button in your Game Menu or 
  • Type /join doom in your chat bar to go to the Wheel of Doom or 
  • Type /join destiny in your chat bar to go to the Wheel of Destiny

How to spin the Wheel of Doom or Destiny:

  • Get a free spin at the start of each month 
  • Get a free spin every day when you upgrade your account

What do I get when I spin?

EVERY time you spin, you will receive:

  • 10,000 gold 
  • Fortune Potion 
  • 1 hour XP Boost

You can use the Fortune Potions and the XP Boosts you receive in the Wheel of Doom and Destiny merge shops to create exclusive gear! You may also win one of the bonus prizes that also drop from the Wheels!

Old 1% Drops Leaving and New Gear Arriving

With every spin, you get a chance to get a rare 1% drop - either the Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness OR a hard-to-get item OR gear that ONLY drops from the Wheel of Doom! The gear listed below will be leaving the Wheel of Doom NEXT WEEK... while the gear replacing it will become available for a while. 

Before the items listed below leave, their drop rate will increase to let anyone still hunting have one final shot at getting the gear!

The MechaJouster Armor is ONLY available from the Wheels!

1% Gear leaving:

  • Doom Chaos Symbiote Armor
  • Doom Naval Commander set

Gear arriving this Friday, May 2nd:*

  • Exosuit Binsoku Armor, Dagger, and Helm
  • Doom Shielded Centurion Armor and Helm 
  • Doom Centurion Armor and Helm 
  • Centurion Cape

Gear added to the Merge Shop LAST week:

  • Dark Exosuit Binsoku Armor, Dagger, and Helm (based on the Exosuit Binsoku)
  • Twig's Fishbones pet

* This Design Notes was originally posted on April 21st, but has been updated.

Why is the Gear Changing?

Good question! Back when we first introduced the Wheel of Doom, we added in old Quibble items that were NOT tagged rare (we will never return an item that has been tagged rare!) and gave them a 1% drop rate. MANY of you guys were very, very happy about that, but a lot of you had reservations.

As a compromise, we said we would swap out the 1% items every couple of months so... and that time has come. There are only a handful of Quibble items without rare tags left, which means there are only a small number of them that qualify for inclusion in the WoD. So, we are adding some of those items back in, but with some additional recolors for the merge shop.

We were going to stop cycling the items in and out, but based on player feedback, we decided not to do that. There will still be a small increase in the drop rates, however, before this latest batch leaves next week.

Now Live - Tower of Doom

Battle through 100 Levels of Terror!

What dark and deadly creatures wait at the top and bottom of this death-trap? Battle increasingly-difficult monsters on your way to the top of the Tower of Doom. Then, take on more and more challengers as you fight your way to the lowest level of the Tower! You won't be able to skip any levels in the Tower of Doom, so the only way to reach the last boss is to fight through ALL 100 floors!

Even Creel Wants This Sword.

This dungeon crawl is epic. We've taken a giant spire and filled all 100 floors with every kind of monster we could think of, and then added a boss - all familiar faces to you old-timers! - every 10 levels. The monsters get increasingly difficult as you progress through the tower, so not only is completing this dungeon something to brag about, it's also a great place to farm gold and XP, no matter what level you are.

Hunt for the Eternity Blade - and other awesome loot!

Heroes level 30 or above will be able to unlock a special quest to hunt through the Tower of Doom for the fabulous Eternity Blade! You'll be able to get the quest from Zoshi in the /towerofdoom map. This awesome sword is available to Legends and free players alike, and switches between two looks when you click its hilt. Keep it - in the near future, it will give you a chance to experience the most brutal battle you've EVER seen!

You'll also collect Monster Trophies as you fight through the tower, which you can use to unlock exclusive gear in the Tower of Doom merge shop. To access the shop, just talk to Zoshi in /towerofdoom.


Made from all your monster trophies...

From Beleen To Tendou

As a special "thank you" to Tendou for helping her in such a huge way with contest judging, Beleen has released a special superdeformed "Tendurrr" pet! You can get this cute lil guy as a rare drop from Dark Makai from /nulgath and /tercessuinotlim.

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

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!

Wolfhound Warrior Tier Set

The First of Three Fantasy Hero Sets!

In Lore, one thing is always true: When you play the game of Chaos, you win or you die. There is no middle ground. But we choose to defy fate, and know you will want to, as well! The Wolfhound Warrior is the first of three new tiered sets paying homage to the Game of Thrones book and television series. In the coming months, the Dragon Emperor and Dark Warlock sets will follow, too.

Unlock all 11 items in the Wolfhound Warrior set with the 12 month upgrade package starting this Friday, April 18th, at 12:01 AM server time, or choose from the 6 month upgrade, 3 month upgrade, 5000 AdventureCoin, or 12000 AdventureCoin packages for selected items from the set!

The 12 month upgrade comes with all 11 of the following:

  • 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

6 month upgrade and 12k AC packages:

NEW: Special Package 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.

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. Once those packages go live in the near future, anyone who bought the pass would automatically get them in their badge shop in the book of Lore.

You would have to buy 3 years worth of membership to get all of this gear with the set-up above, but if you're a gear collector (or just 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.

Save the Princess

Battle-testing in Breakstone's New Tutorial

The quest to create a new and improved tutorial continues! Earlier this week, we released the first version of our new Breakstone tutorial for you guys so we could hear your thoughts. We need you to help us make the tutorial as easy to understand, helpful, and engaging for new players as possible! 

Thank you for helping us test!

We've made a lot of changes based on your feedback, including:

  • Have Zorbak mention blue arrows pointing to clickies
  • Add “A Hero is Born” achievement for completing tutorial
  • Add a Cape and a Helm to Zorbak’s shop to showcase shops
  • Change info text to “Double click a monster to begin attacking”
  • Give Galanoth better directional text
  • Rework Zorbak's quest
  • Explain story better (bring back part where Princess explains Ring of Dragon Control)
  • Change Enhancement shop

That is not all of the changes you suggested that we are going to make, though! We've got a running list, and we will keep adding improvements.

How-To Cutscenes Added

One of the best pieces of feedback we received over the last couple days was that you REALLY want knew players to learn how to chat, use the interface, and learn how to report people breaking the rules. We agree!

Yara explains the User Interface

After you finish the last battle, walk past Artix and Robina onto the Slime Road. You'll meet Yara the Paladin. She's got some helpful tutorial cutscenes for you to watch:

  • How to chat
  • How to use the User Interface
  • How to report other users
  • Links to the Design Notes
  • A list of game commands

We are also planning to add how-to tutorial cutscenes for the following:

  • How to use the Enhancement system
  • How to use the Book of Lore
  • How to use shops and your bank

Do you like these tutorial cutscenes? Would you like to see us do more? If so, let us know! These cutscenes will also be added to Battleon AND in the Book of Lore, as well.

High-Level Boss Battles in Breakstone

We REALLY appreciate that you guys are helping us test... but we know that most of you are higher than level 3-6. That's why we added high level versions of the Dread Dragon. If you are a high-enough level, you'll see a button to take you to level 30, 45, or 60 versions of the boss. 

Each version drops exclusive items: the Mystical or Warriors' Beast Master armor and helms!

Help Us Help New Heroes

NEW Tutorial Testing Begins NOW!

Developing AQWorlds is always an adventure, and improving the tutorial has definitely been a journey. (I think we are on version 6... 7... 8?!) As we battle to build the best game possible, we need your help again! 

BREAKING NEWS: We have a new tutorial to test!

Starting tonight, we need you to have your family and friends - anyone who has NOT played AQW yet - create an account and run through the tutorial. Tell them to create an account at AQ.com, then /join breakstone. (You can do this, too!) Watch them, take notes on where they get confused or lost. Screencapture their playing if possible and send us the videos, or post your comments to us on Twitter or the forum.

The Red Dragon waits... to devour Princess Tara!?!

Thursday and Friday, as your feedback comes in, we'll be changing the Breakstone tutorial based on your ideas. Then, this Friday, some of our new users will begin seeing this version instead of the Stonehand tutorial.

Help the Princess (and new Heroes)!

This is your chance to help us help new Heroes have the best introduction to AQWorlds possible! A better, smarter new Hero is a stronger, more skilled guild or party member for you down the line! 

High Level Red Dragon Battle!

This Friday, we will ALSO be releasing a high level (50+) version of the Breakstone Red Dragon for our more experienced players. You'll find 2 new armors (1 Legend, 1 free player) will drop from the dragon. Those won't be found anywhere else in AQW, so you'd better bring your biggest Dragonblade!

Grenwog and Earth Day are Live

Don't Let Lore Become A Polluted Wasteland!

(If you missed out on this, /join pollution to play through it!) Now, he needs your help to fight on the side of nature to keep a smog-spewing factory closed for good.

Think you can take this guy on?

Once the largest source of pollution in Lore, the long-abandoned Totengeld Factory has been consumed by nature and has become a habitat to many forms of life. But now, the CEO of Totengeld Industries has been released from jail and intends to reopen the factory’s doors. It’s up to you to stop him before he destroys Lore with his toxic waste - and dominates it with his mind-controlling energy drinks! Tonight, /join totengeld to start the battle!

 

TWO New Grenwog Pets

Recycling not your thing? That's ok - hop over to BattleOn instead and start hunting for all the eggs we've Grenwog has hidden to unlock the Vorpal Bunny pet. Then, /join Grenwog and fight Grenwog himself for a chance to get one of the new 2014 Grenwog pets:


Ooo, chocolate! And - aaah, kill it with fire!!

A storm has come to Twilly's Seasonal Shop! Starting tonight, you will need to purchase the Spring Token from Twilly to open this shop. It will be available until spring ends, and the summer shop opens. Not sure what the Spring Seasonal Shop is? Check out yesterday's Design Notes!

This shop will contain:

  • Tidal Helm
  • Monsoon Wrap
  • Dual Waves of Fury Daggers
  • Double-edged Ocean's Heart polearm

New Gear in the Wheel of Doom/Destiny

Sets Include:

  • Midnight Archmage Armor
  • Halo of the Midnight Mage
  • Cape of the Midnight Mage

Player Opinion Poll

Do you want to see the Limited Quantity Shops Return?

Back in 2012, when we were having some pretty bad server lag, we stopped doing the limited quantity shops because of how many issues there were. Now that the servers have improved, we are revisiting the idea, but we need to know what YOU think!

Do you want to see the Limited Quantity Shops return? Want to see them come back in a different form? If we DID bring them back, we might change how they work:

Possible changes to the LQS idea:
  • Make players complete a quest before the shop opens
  • Portion the gear out per timezone, so there would be set quantities of gear per timezone, and the shop would restock.
  • Add your idea to the poll!
Player poll: We haven't had a Limited Quantity Shop since 2012. Do you want to see them return now that the server lag has improved? Let us know!
Yes!
No!
Do not care.
  
pollcode.com free polls 

Thank you for the feedback!

Thank you all for the feedback on the idea about whether or not to return the Limited Quantity Shop. At this time, I don't have any set date for if or when it would return. The point of the poll was to begin a dialogue about whether/how many of you guys want to see the idea return. 

For those who DO like the idea, but are worried about problems, I posted some ideas on how we could fix the issues IF it did come back. I'm going to let the poll run for at least a couple weeks, as I'd like to gather as many opinions as possible. 

Another question for you: 

What is the difference to you between a limited quantity shop in-game and when Heromart has a limited quantity of print items with in-game rewards attached?
Do you prefer one over the other? Dislike both? Like both? 
Knowing that kind of information is also helpful!

The Tempest is Coming

This shop will contain:

  • Tempest Armor
  • Tidal Helm
  • Monsoon Wrap

  • Double-edged Ocean's Heart polearm

Remember that once the storms of spring pass and the lock heats up these items will go rare and get replaced by the summer seasonal items!

Playing Pranks Since 2009

We LOVE playing games and pranks!

At Artix Entertainment, we LOVE April Fools Day! Over the years, we've pulled some pretty amazing pranks, like when we...

Didn't pay the "color bill" in 2014!

We were notified that Monochromatic Unlimited, Inc began shutting off AQW's color saturation on April 1st. When you logged in to AQWorlds, all of the players, the game's interface, and many of the starting maps were black and white. 

Made everyone fart all day long in 2013!

Anyone standing still would find themselves with a digestive problem... and if you turned the sound on, you couldn't escape the stinky sounds of April 1st! We also had a gas by adding the Fart Soundboard and leaving the /fart command in permanently!

Let the sound of entertainment soothe you:

THPPPPPPPTTT!!!

Had EbilCorp invade the game in 2012

The nefarious Chairman Platinum (CEO of EbilCorp and Artix Entertainment's most bitter rival) TOOK OVER AQWorlds! We almost lost Cysero, but everyone pulled through just fine... though it looks like the Chairman has friends in Monochromatic Unlimited.

Derped Battleon in 2011

Derp derp derp-derp-a-derp derp! DUUUURRP! Beleen re-drew Battleon! She loves it when she gets to draw —as you can see, this is why Artix and Cysero won’t allow her to draw on a regular basis =D

EVERYONE gets a GOLD NAME in 2010!

Due to a freak bug in the newly released auto-mod tool, which selects certain players to be moderators based on their in-game behaviour... All of the playersin the game were "promoted" to Mod status with a Gold Name! Meanwhile, the auto-mod tool demoted the entire staff! (...including Artix, Cysero, Beleen, J6, Miltonius, Reens and Minimal!

Just kidding! We changed everyone's name to gold so they thought they were in-game moderators!

Redrew Battleon in 2009 to reduce line count

On April 1st, 2009, our players logged to a message informing them that “to save bandwidth costs, we had SLIGHTLY reduced the amount of lines and color in our art. We ARE SURE you won’t even notice!” Then they clicked ok and saw..... Redrawn Battleon!

Crazy Pranks in our Other Games!

In 2014, AQ turned all their NPCs... into BABIES!

In 2011, the original AdventureQuest Let a 7 year old draw the art for an entire event!

In 2010, the original AdventureQuest swapped the genders of their most popular NPCs!

In 2009, DragonFable turned their game upside down, and had players running on the ceiling!

In 2008, DragonFable and MechQuest swapped their game NPCs!

In 2007, DragonFable had giant chickencows invade the entire game!

In 2006, our community staff convinced everyone that they were quitting... and the players exploded! But do not be fooled, because Artix Entertainment is not going ANYWHERE! We may enjoy making games and playing pranks, but we plan to be around for decades to come! 

So. What do you think we'll do NEXT year?

AQW Color Repossessed

We Forgot to Pay Our Color Bill!

I just got notified that Monochromatic Unlimited, Inc will begin shutting off AQW's color saturation on April 1st. We will FIGHT THIS! If you log in to AQWorlds, you will, unfortunately, see much of the game in black and white. We are working frantically to correct this. Artix is on the phone now with Eric Dyer, Vice President of Color Collections with Monochromatic Unlimited, Incorporated to fix this issue.

They will never take... OUR COLOR!

But no matter what it may look like, this situation isn't cut and dry or black and white. They have not taken ALL of the color yet... just anything connected to the game client. And much of the area surrounding Battleon.

50 shades of grey will just. Not. Work.

That has ME seeing red... which is why I asked the AQW team to pull together and create some paintball-themed gear. EVERYONE should equip the paintball gun from Eric Dyer's shop and run around Battleontown bringing color back to the game!

Bring back the color!

We expect to have this situation rectified by 12 PM server time on Wednesday. Captain Rhubarb has already managed to return color to our website and character pages! (Monochromatic Unlimited has NO idea how much creative people - and webpages- NEED color!)

We hope you won't be blue as we strive to return color to AQW!

Extra April Fool's Joke!

One of our artists, Blade, wanted to play a joke on all of you AND me! He made a Navel Commander Armor (think bellybuttons, not pirates) and got a bunch of players to beg us for it. I was vehemently opposed to releasing this armor, but you guys wanted it and Blade asked so very nicely.

This is no joke. 

So I put it in game... but hid the shop in a map and am not telling anyone where it is! The Navel Commander and BellyButton shop will be available for the next week. If you can find it in one of our most nightmarish maps AND have 1 million gold, you can get your very own Navel Commander, too.
