Chaos Limited Quantity Sets

Rare Collectors... Start Your Engine!

If you were with us back in April, you saw the introduction of Limited Quantity sets. 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 a shining trophy that only a select few will possess!

  2. 10:30 PM Friday
  3. 8:30 AM Saturday
  4. 6:30 PM Saturday
  5. 4:30 AM Sunday
  6. 2:30 AM Sunday

How Do Limited Quantity Sets Work?

  1. Log into a special LQS webpage on AQ.com 
  2. Purchase the set using either ACs or gold (if you have EVER upgraded your account, you can purchase the Legend sets for gold!)
  3. Log into AQW and find your set badge in the Book of Lore (no character page badge attached.)

Note: Item quantities will restock throughout the weekend so that everyone gets a fair chance at the gear. 

Frequently Asked Questions 

  • Will there be enough items for everyone? No, but with multiple restocks your changes of getting an item are pretty good... as long as you keep an eye on your clock and don't miss the restock!
  • Will item quantities update automatically? No, but once you purchase an item from the shop or revisit the page, you'll see an updated amount. 
  • If a set doesn't sell out right away, will the restock amount roll over? Yes. The next restock amount will always be added to the previous amount of gear. Gear not sold before a restock will remain in the shop.
  • Will the items be 0 ACs? All items sold in the LQSets will be 0 ACs, so you can keep them in your bank for free, forever!
  • Do I have to be a Legend to buy the Legend-only sets? You do not need to have an active upgrade to purchase the Legend sets, as long as you have upgraded your account at any time in the past!

Battle For the Lair Continues

War Meters in Lair Updated

After three weeks of intense war combat, the team and I wanted to switch things up a bit, give this latest war a different feel. But  the feedback from many of you was that the new war meter was confusing, so we've reverted the displays back to the original system. 

NO war waves were lost in the conversion; we are now simply displaying the values in the old, easier-to-read way. As of this writing, the Alliance is holding strong with a 2% lead over Chaos (21% to 19%). 

If you are upgraded and support the Alliance, you can also complete the quests in /ChaosNorth to recruit Xan. Those quests also raise the Alliance war meter!

Have a great Saturday, and enjoy the rest of the battles! Don't miss this week's latest additions to the war merge shop, and make sure to check out the gear in the Summer Shop (find it in your game menu)! The next batch of Aranx's summer gear will arrive on Monday, so if you've been hungering for some new hair-style helms, you're in luck!

Summer of Chaos Heats Up

Hot Gear to Help You Look Cool in Battle!

There is almost nothing cooler than seeing a hail of FIERY FLAMING SPINNING SKULLS OF DEATH rain down on your opponents... so that's why we asked Hollow (lead of the original AdventureQuest) and AQW Artist Blade to break out their pyromancy skills and craft us all-new Xan-themed gear!

THEN we turned that burning insanity even cooler (oh yeah, we made that pun) by adding it into the animated item special engine! Find the Flaming Death Skull (!!!) gear in the Chaos Rares shop from Maya in /worldwarlore!

  • Floating Xan Pet (Legend-only)
  • Xan on your Back Cape
  • Spinning Mace of InXANity!
  • Pyromancer Evolution Armor

Summer Shop 2014

It's getting hot in here, so bring all the heroes... into game menu for the 2014 Summer Shop! Once again, we've got a crazyawesome selection of Chaos, NPC, and World Cup-themed surfboards by Memet and EpicDuel guest artist, Bidoof!

You'll also find a hole inventory's worth of the hottest beach-themed gear outside of Lolosia by the incomparable Aranx!

Limited Time Upgrade Bonus

Unlock the Forsaken Warlock gear when you upgrade or buy AdventureCoins! EVERY upgrade bought in June will unlock the Shadow Warlock set at the end of the month!

  • Get all 10 Forsaken Warlock items with a 12 month upgrade

Conquest of the Dragon's Lair

The Summer of Chaos Heats Up!

Forces of Chaos, FALL IN! Alliance Army, /unsheath your weapons! The next battle is happening NOW, and once the heart of the Dragon's Lair is pierced and its secret revealed, there is NO going back! 

Alliance Army Goal: Empress Gravelyn commands you to slay the Chaos Legion to buy her time to rally more forces! /Join LairDefend to begin!

Forces of Chaos Goal: Destroy the Lair's Defenders to gain access to the heart of the Dragon's Lair, and unlock the secret of the 13th Lord of Chaos's destiny! /Join LairAttack to begin!

The war meter you see is a visual representation of the shifting war waves, illustrating the Chaotic way the frontlines of both the Chaos and Alliance forces shift back and forth. 

Fixed Points in Time

Many of the events in the Summer of Chaos are NOT scripted; the war cutscenes were written for each different outcome (if the Alliance had won in Darkovia, Safiria and the 10 million vampires would not have died!)... but many events in this storyline MUST happen. 

Your Hero's destiny has been set since you first got struck by lightning and fell down the mountain; we have been leading up to this for years! That means to unlock the Gauntlet waiting for you... you MUST finish all of the Chaos Lord sagas and face Drakath on top of Mount DoomSkull!

Need help? See the step-by-step Chaos Lord storyline walkthrough. (Spoilers beware!)

Legend-only Alliance Release

In order to take out even MORE of the Chaos Legion, Empress Gravelyn is sending Legendary Alliance members to locate Xan, one of Lore's most powerful - and insane - Pyromancers! If you are not caught up on his story, /join volcano to begin it! Talk to Warlic in the World War Lore map to begin this story!

Some say the world will end in fire... some in ice!

You'll need to save Xan from the legion of Chaos monsters sent by the 13th Chaos Lord AND overcome his paranoia to convince him that his best interests lie in helping YOU blast tens of thousands of Chaos Warriors to smithereens... or his fire will be quenched for good!

Dragon's Lair Gear

Talk to Loremaster Maya when you /join worldwarlore to see the newest gear in our Chaos War Rares and Chaos Merge shops!

 Earlier this week, we released the Stalagbite's Herald and Champion sets in the merge shop, and tonight you'll find some of the coolest (literally!) new weapons released yet!

Dragon's Lair and Chaos Beasts

Conquer the Dragon's Lair to Unlock the Chaos Beast

The 13th Chaos Lord senses a VERY powerful object kept deep inside the Dragon's Lair, and is sending the forces of Chaos to clear a path to it! Empress Gravelyn needs the Alliance Army to defend the Dragon's Lair long enough to buy her time to gather an even greater legion of warriors to combat Chaos! Which side will YOU fight for? 

This is not a war like we've been fighting the last few weeks! There will be no wave count. The war meter will only show the shifting frontlines, as the forces of Chaos surge forth and fall back. (You may remember a war meter like this from DragonFable's "The Storm" war.)

Chaos Goal: Conquer the Dragon's Lair

Battle your way up Mount Vasalkar to reach the heart of the Dragon's Lair! Once inside, the 13th Lord of Chaos will unlock one of Lore's most closely-guarded treasures... and YOU will be transported to a plane where you can re-battle the first 12 Chaos Beasts in the Chaos Beast Gauntlet!

The POWER WILL BE YOURS!

Alliance Goal: Buy Empress Gravelyn Time

Empress Gravelyn is putting out a call to ALL Alliance members! Defend the Lair to buy her time! She needs to gather more forces before she launches an attack on Mount DoomSkull! Battle your way up, destroying the forces of Chaos, to reach the heart of the Dragon's Lair! 

Alliance: Your Empress Needs You!

Once inside, the 13th Lord of Chaos WILL unlock one of Lore's most closely-guarded treasures... but Empress Gravelyn will have gained the time she needs! YOU will be transported to a plane where you can re-battle the first 12 Chaos Beasts in the Chaos Beast Gauntlet!

Legend-only Alliance Release

In order to take out even MORE of the Chaos Legion, Empress Gravelyn is sending Legendary Alliance members to locate Xan, one of Lore's most powerful - and insane - Pyromancers! If you are not caught up on his story, /join volcano to begin it! Talk to Warlic in the World War Lore map to begin this story!

Some say the world will end in fire... some in ice!

You'll need to save Xan from the legion of Chaos monsters sent by the 13th Chaos Lord AND overcome his paranoia to convince him that his best interests lie in helping YOU blast tens of thousands of Chaos Warriors to smithereens... or his fire will be quenched for good!

Gratitude Maker

June 26, 2014

We are Making AQW History

Thank you for being a part of this once-in-a-lifetime event!

Tomorrow, we will be almost halfway through the Summer of Chaos. So far, you've:

  • Battled (or are in the middle of battling) up to the top of Mount DoomSkull to confront Drakath. 
  • Seen the lands you've loved attacked and burned to the ground by the forces of Chaos. 
  • Watched as an NPC (non-player character), Safiria the Vampire Queen, is slain because of the havoc Chaos wreaked in her lands.

After six years of sagas, stories, live events, and holiday releases, we have reached the pinnacle of AQWorlds' first main storyline; World War Lore is a massive, world-shattering event, and it is happening RIGHT NOW! You are playing a vital part in it, and THAT is what makes AQWorlds so special - YOU being here as we build the events, telling us what you want to see, and helping us put those ideas in-game.

We've done SO MUCH together:

  • Like the time twenty thousand players joined in casting a spell to teleport Battleon to safety, and
  • We all became undead to pass through the deathmist to storm Lionfang's Keep, or
  • When thirty thousand joined together to battle Chaos Lord Discordia, and
  • The original Friday the 13th live event, with guest star Voltaire, which was so awesome the servers crashed from sheer WIN

And now... we are poised to discover the 13th Lord of Chaos' Chaos Beast. The creature that, once risen, will unlock the final rune on Drakath's Chaos Portal.

Chaos has had the upper hand until now, but as our long-time players already know, anything can AND WILL happen… (even WE have not known everything that would happen this summer, because we needed to know what you wanted to see) and everything you've done so far is leading up to something truly amazing.

We want to thank all of you who have supported us so far. Without you, we would not be here to make AQWorlds, and your fellow heroes would not be able to play this Saga or those to come. We are already in production for the next main storyline after the 13 Lords of Chaos Saga finale. AQWorlds is not going anywhere* and we hope to see you battling alongside us for years to come!

If you enjoy these special events and our weekly releases, please support us by upgrading your account. We are going to make it worth your while this summer... and beyond!

* And neither is anything we've built so far. You'll still be able to visit the zones and NPCs from the 13 Lords of Chaos Saga

Chaos vs DRAGONS

Conquest of the Dragon's Lair

This Friday, join us as the forces of Chaos battle to unlock a VERY powerful object locked away inside the Dragon's Lair while the Alliance’s army fights to prevent the 13th Chaos Lord from breaching its defenses!

First look at the Dragon's Cleric gear for the Rares shop!

Empress Gravelyn received word from the Mirror Realm that deep inside the heart of the Lair, one of our world's most powerful objects is being kept safe... because their realm is growing increasingly unstable!

Alliance Army: Defend the Dragon's Lair from Chaos this Friday!

Forces of Chaos: Break into the Lair and get past the defenses put in place to protect the Mirror Realm'sgreatest treasure!

NEW Gear in the Chaos War Merge Shop NOW

/Join Darkoviaattack or Darkoviadefend and start farming for those war medals, because there are two all-new sets in the shop! Legends can unlock the Stalagbite's Champion gear and ALL players can unlock the Stalagbite's Herald items!

NEW: Stalagbite gear in the Chaos War Merge Shop!

Summer of Chaos Event Page

Artix and Miko put together an amazing event page for the Summer of Chaos! We will update this each week so you can follow the storyline's progress... just beware of spoilers - if you miss a week, you'll definitely want to get caught up!

Legend-only Release this Friday: Recruit Xan!

Xan the Pyromancer is one of Lore's most powerful - and most INSANE! - pyromancers... and he will be a powerful ally for the Alliance... IF you can recruit him! He is hiding somewhere in the Northern lands, plotting to take down the 13th Chaos Lord... we think! You can never really be sure with him.

But this Friday, Legends will find out exactly WHAT his plans are AND might be able to help take out tens of thousands of Chaos Warriors!

Doomwood Falls to Chaos

All Forces Report to Darkovia!

The Battle for LightGuard Keep is OVER! As a small clean-up squadron of Chaos warriors lingers in Doomwood to finish off LightGuard's defenders, both the Alliance Army and the Legion of Chaos are converging upon Darkovia...

Unlocked: the Chaorrupted Lycan Hunter Boss fight!

Invasion of Darkovia Battle Plans!

The 13th Lord of Chaos is preparing for a MAJOR blow to the Alliance's morale! At stake is the life of Vampire Queen Safiria and her 10 million vampire minions! 


With so many more warriors from each side preparing to /join darkoviaattack and /darkoviadefend, the Darkovia war meter's total will be doubled... but so will your percentages!* (Out-of-character: This is because the Doomwood war is done, so we have a NEW war total.)

* As soon as I can get to a computer and push the new files live. The car mechanic's lobby does not have a computer with Flash, sadly...

On Top of Mount DoomWood...

13 runes flash atop the Chaos Portal. Drakath, Champion of Chaos, watches as Lore falls to the might of the 13th Lord of Chaos... and laughs!

HA HA HA... IT IS ALMOST TIME, CHOSEN ONE... THE SUMMONS HAS GONE OUT... I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN ONCE YOU ARE DONE DESTROYING THE WORLD YOU FOUGHT SO HARD TO SAVE!

13th Lord of Chaos Attacks

Invasion of Doomwood AND Darkovia!

The forces of the 13th Lord of Chaos demolished Willowcreek earlier this week, and the attack against Doomwood is happening now! To strike fear in the hearts of Alliance warriors, the Legion of Chaos is ALSO marching on Darkovia this weekend.

At stake: the Vampire Queen's life!

Starting tonight, /join darkoviaattack OR /darkoviadefend to begin fighting in the NEW battleground! You can still /join forestattack or /forestdefend to conquer or save Lightguard Keep, but the World War Lore has just become MUCH deadlier!

Will You Invade Darkovia... or Defend It?

The Lycans and Vampires have an uneasy truce while battling Chaos, but if the army of Chaos succeeds in conquering Darkovia, the Queen of the Vampires and her 10 million minions will be destroyed… FOREVER!

The forces of Chaos AND the Alliance's army will need to fight harder than ever, because the life of MILLIONS of vampires depends on who wins the war in Darkovia... and the safety of Lightguard Keep depends on who is victorious in Doomwood!

Talk to Loremaster Maya in the WorldWarLore map for:

  • The Invasion of Darkovia cutscene
  • All-new Chaos Merge shop gear
  • More event rares

Forsaken Warlock is LIVE!

In the world of Lore, one thing is always true: trust NO ONE... especially not Warlocks! For the final package in our Fantasy Hero trilogy, Tyronius took inspiration from the much-beloved (or reviled, if you're a follower of Good/the Mother of Dragons) warlocks of Quarth in the Game of Thrones series to create an all-new armor set!

Find the Warlock Grand Master, Forsaken Warlock, and Warlock Adept available when you upgrade or purchase select AC packages! You'll also get the bonus Shadow Warlock set, too! And EVERYONE who purchased an upgrade package in the month of June will receive the Shadow Warlock set!*

Buying a special package pass for $60 USD will unlock ALL of the gear from the Wolfhound Warrior, Dragon Champion, and Forsaken Warlock packages, PLUS an exclusive character page badge AND 1500 AdventureCoins!* Once those packages go live, anyone who bought the pass will automatically get them in their badge shop in the book of Lore. 

* Once Captain Rhubarb returns from vacation!

Invasion of Doomwood

Lightguard Keep Raises Its Defenses!

The Attack on Willowcreek has ENDED with victory for the forces of Chaos! Congratulations to the 13th Lord of Chaos and the entire Chaorrupted Legion! You have done well... but the Alliance is preparing to hit you HARD and FAST ... and the next encounter begins NOW!

/Join WorldWarLore and speak with Loremaster Maya to battle the forces of Chaos attacking Doomwood OR embrace the Chaorruption and invade! If Lightguard Keep falls, the Alliance will be sorely weakened!

The 13th Lord of Chaos Is Plotting!

Military strategists know that no battle plan survives the first encounter with the enemy... and THAT is why the 13th Lord of Chaos is preparing a surprise for ALL of you! The clock is ticking, Heroes, and if the Alliance doesn't hurry, they may find themselves fighting a war on TWO fronts!

Loremaster Maya has heard rumors that Chaos creatures around the world know the 13th Lord of Chaos' next attack location... slay them to discover what the plot is!

We have received SO MANY incredible posters and art over the last several weeks, as you guys are try to recruit help for your side in the war... so let's keep the fan-art flowing!

Chaos Forces Moving Out

13th Chaos Lord Prepares Next Invasion!

The forces of Chaos have taken Willowcreek, and it will NEVER be the same again! As the Alliance battles to save what remains of Willowcreek, the 13th Lord of Chaos' army has been seen preparing to march on Doomwood! The battle for Lightguard Keep begins TOMORROW!

Recruitment poster by AQW Hero  A27theDemonKnight 

If you are still battling in the /creekattack and /creekdefend zones tomorrow, you will want to shift your attention to the Doomwood area to continue battling in the war!

Willowcreek Treasure Chest 

If you have a Willowcreek Treasure Chest key, you will be able to access the shop from Loremaster Maya tomorrow, so keep on battling, warriors for Chaos!

War Goal: 

Save Doomwood Forest, or Lightguard Keep falls! The winning side will determine what the Chaos Slayer's Class rank 4 passive skill (Ultimate Power) will do: 

  • If Chaos wins in Doomwood, the skill will become a 10% attack buff
  • If the Alliance wins, the skill will become a 15% crit damage buff

The Alliance has fought SO hard, that the townspeople of Willowcreek will be able to restore much of the town, but sometimes it is good to have a reminder of what you've faced... and what you're fighting for. Join us tomorrow as the NEXT battle in World War Lore begins!

Ninja Drew Drechsel gets #1 time!

American Ninja Warrior 2014

On last night's TV  episode of American Ninja Warrior on NBC, our favorite "Real Life Ninja," Drew Drechsel, completed the course with the #1 fastest time! 44.24 seconds. WAY TO GO DREW! You can send him a congratulations on his twitter... @NINJADREW!!!

Drew Drechsel gets 1st place on American Ninja Warrior!

I was deeply honored that for his TV interview, Drew wore the "Real Life Ninja" shirt that I designed for him. In addition to Drew, several of our other friends including Reko Rivera (The guy who breathed the fireball) and Ryan Stratis successfully completed the course! It was a really exciting and good night of runs. I hope you join us in cheering them on in the Miami Southeast Region Finals.

Pictures of Drew on TV

SPOILER: This episode choose to focus on the long time rivalry between Drew and another famous contestant named "Flip". They showed Drew's run first and he took 1st place. The pressure was on for Flip to beat it. Unfortunately, Flip's foot slipped on the cargo net during his run causing Flip to touch the water and be disqualified. A good reminder that no matter that no matter how talented someone is, the course is TOUGH and just one tiny miscalculation can end it... and Flip is REALLY REALLY good.

Chaos Slayer: Moglin

June 16, 2014

Chaos Slayer Class Breakdown

Chaos Slayer Breakdown

Memet posting for Mysterious Class Designer!

Guess who’s back again? The Mysterious Class Designer is here to give you the purple-y and juicy details of Chaos Slayer with this new skills breakdown. As you may already know, Chaos Slayer is separated into 4 classes that have the exact same abilities: Berserker, Thief, Mystic, and Cleric. Chaos Slayer is really a class above classes - or as I like to call it, a class to end classes.

So much chaos.

 

Chaos Slayer embodies the nature and power of Chaos in that you can’t predict what it will do next. However, one thing is certain; this class holds great power. Chaos Slayer is a Physical/Magical hybrid with a Mage’s mana regeneration model. This means that you get mana back based on how much damage you dish out relative to your own HP, especially on crits. Regaining mana won’t be too much trouble, and you’ll see why. The best stats to focus on are Intellect, Strength, and Luck. For this crazy and chaotic class, you have to focus on both your LUK stat and your luck in real life.

Autoattack: Chaos Blade

 (2.3 second cooldown, 115% weapon damage)

The Chaos Slayer's weapon attacks are empowered by Chaos making any weapon strike hit like a blade made of pure chaos. Every strike draws in more Chaos blight. Hits up to 3 targets. If you are Chaorrupted, this becomes a single-target ability.

This autoattack is unique because it hits up to 3 nearby targets. For each successful hit, you gain a stack of Chaos Blight, which increases your damage slightly. This will increase the base power of all your other skills, too. The more targets you hit, the more mana you regain.

Rank1: Chaorruption

(5 second cooldown, 15 mana)

Let the Chaorruption take over and render your physical form. Deals moderate damage and Chaorrupts the Chaos Slayer, increasing crit and hit chance by 10% and focusing all attacks on a single target.

This ability turns you Chaorrupted and is best used for fighting a single enemy because all of your attacks – including your autoattack – will be aimed at one target only, like when you’re fighting a boss monster. The hit chance and critical strike chance buff are there to help you with mana control. It will ensure that you hit your target more often because you’ll lose your stacks of Chaos Blight if you miss consecutively. The critical strike chance buff will increase your chances to crit and gain more mana back.

Rank 2: Enigma

(4 second cooldown, 13 mana)

Chaos is the unpredictable power shrouded in mystery. What effects will be inflicted onto your targets? Deals no damage and randomly applies up to 4 effects. Hits up to 6 targets, but will become a single-target ability if you are Chaorrupted.

True to the nature of chaos, this ability can apply as many as 4, or as few as zero, effects to your target. The effects it can potentially trigger are:

  • Anguished - increases your targets’ vulnerability, making them take 50% more damage for 10 seconds.

  • Delusion - blinds your targets and lowers their hit chance for 10 seconds.

  • Impasse - traps your targets and greatly reduces their chance to dodge.

  • Courageous - buff your targets’ defenses, making them take 50% less damage. Yes, that's right – it buffs your enemy. Luckily, this effect has a much lower chance to activate than the others.

    When you are Chaorrupted, Enigma becomes a single-target ability.

Rank 3: Surge

(17 second cooldown, 24 mana)

Summon Chaotic forces to mend your wounds or protect your physical form. Either heals you for a moderate amount over 6 seconds or places a defensive buff significantly reducing all incoming damage for 8 seconds.

This skill will either give you a heal-over time or reduce all damage you take by more than half. The heal-over-time gets stronger with each stack of Chaos Blight you currently have.

Rank 4: Passives

  • Enmity – endurance increased by 25%.

  • Ultimate Power – Chaos, the power within, consumes you.

Who doesn't want more HP? Enmity gives you more survivability, which makes Chaos Slayer even tougher to beat. As for Ultimate Power, chaos has not yet shown us the true effect of this skill. The outcome of the Doomwood war will affect the rank 4 passive's Ultimate Power skill – if the Alliance wins, it will become a 15% crit damage buff. If chaos wins, it will become a 10% attack buff. The fate of this class is in your hands!

Rank 5: Pandemonium

(15 second cooldown, 30 mana)

Create even more Chaos with a massive explosion, hitting up to 6 targets and evolving all effects from Enigma into more powerful effects. If you are Chaorrupted, this becomes a single-target ability.

In addition to its high damage burst, Pandemonium also amplifies all of the effects from Enigma.

  • If your target is Anguished, it will apply Atrophy which will cut your target’s damage by 50% for 10 seconds.

  • If your targets have Delusion, it will apply Ataxia which will sharply cut their chances to critically strike for seconds.

  • If your targets have Impasse, it will apply Numbing which will significantly drop their haste for 10 seconds.

  • If your targets are Courageous, it will apply Paragon which will increase their outgoing damage by 500%.

Needless to say, if your target already has the Courageous buff, you may want to avoid activating this skill.

Rank 10: Passive

Spell Disruption – All spell damage taken is reduced by 35%.

You won’t find many monsters in AQW that deal spell damage to you, but this can be useful in PvP. If you combine Spell Disruption with Surge, you’ll take very little damage from spell attacks.

Final Thoughts

There you have it, a breakdown of all the effects of Chaos Slayer. This class is fun to use and wild in battle. Chaos Blade is the best autoattack I have seen since it gets stronger as the battle progresses. I really enjoy having the option to switch between AoE and single-target mode with Chaorruption. You really have to watch out what Enigma will apply – since it has a short cooldown and uses little mana, you can keep spamming that skill until you get the effect you want. Then you can finish it off with Pandemonium. Always watch your HP because Surge might not give you the effect you want. With its several buffs and debuffs, Chaos Slayer is awesome for farming, soloing, PvP, group battles, and support – you could even say it's the ultimate class.

WAR UPDATE! 100%

Willowcreek Conquered by the Forces of Chaos!

The 13th Lord of Chaos and their minions have conquered Willowshire... our first loss ever against a Chaos Lord. 

After inflicting horror and unbelievable casualties... and leaving behind a "Chaotic Beast" to keep the townsfolk in terror... the main forces of Chaos have moved on to attack their next location. We do not yet know where... but we suspect the attack to commence tomorrow or Wednesday. 


Artix von Krieger says ,"Alliance forces... a single battle does not determine the outcome of a war. We can still stop the 13th Lord of Chaos before their armies reach the town of Battleon. We WILL NOT allow them to conquer another of our towns! BATTLE ON!"

Happy Father's Day!

To all the Father-Heroes out there... Thanks!

Father's Day is the time of year when we dust off our golf bags, sharpen our grilling spatulas and let our dads, grandfathers and other father figures know how much they mean to us! 

Every father will enjoy the bounty of BBQ grill gear, the up-to-par Golf Suit set, a Gravity Defying Coffee Mug, the paper-cut-inducing Newsparchement, and the good Ol Fishin’ Armor Set... you can find them all in your Game Menu. Or better yet, get your dad to log in and battle alongside you! Then he can get his own!

Chaos Forces Advancing as Willowcreek Burns!

World War Lore is raging in Willowcreek as the war meter is about to hit 75%! 

Except the Alliance of Good and Evil!

The forces of Chaos won the 50% war challenge and unlocked the Willowcreek Treasure Chest. (Battle the defenders in /creekattack to get the key.) The defenders of Willowcreek have also become weak to Chaos damage!

The Most Chaotic Friday the 13th!

If you missed it last week, the Friday the 13th Limited Time Shop is live! (We did not do an event with long-time guest star Voltaire as we are right in the middle of WORLD WAR LORE... the craziest, most massive war to save Lore we've EVER done!

We DO have an idea for an event with Voltaire later this year, but we should talk to HIM first before we give you any details!

Happy Birthday, Ghost!

This past Friday the 13th was Ghost's birthday. If you don't know who Ghost is, he's the lead animator who produces all those amazing cinematic cutscenes that drive our story forward. He is a long-time AE team member (he started out as a volunteer artist/animator for DragonFable!) 

Friday the 13th + Ghost Birthday = WAR!

Fun fact: the LAST time Ghost's birthday fell on a Friday the 13th, the DragonFable heroes were right in the middle of the Necropolis war! (That is either really BAD luck or a very devious plot on Ghost's part!)

Wish him a happy birthday on Twitter, then get all his birthday gear in the Friday the 13th Shop when you /join worldwarlore!

World War Lore is ON

The Legion of Chaos Attacks Willowcreek!

It is the eve of a war that will engulf the world… as the 13th Chaos Lord prepares their forces to do what no Chaos Lord before them could… This week, /join WorldWarLore at the foot of Mount DoomSkull for the beginning of a war that will wreck everything... and no one knows what happens (not even US!) until you take action!

World War Lore... BEGINS!

A reign of Chaos so powerful, the land will NEVER be the same! Unsheathe your blade and prepare to charge as Chaos creatures begin their attack on Willowcreek! 

Choose to battle Chaos when you /join creekdefend OR... fight on the side of Chaos when you /join creekattack! Attackers will battle the heroes of Lore!* The Chaorruption in Willowcreek is causing the villagers there to appear to be entirely different people! Forces of Chaos: you do not know WHO you'll be fighting... you just need to want to WIN!

Who will fight FOR CHAOS?!

As the war meters rise, the town itself will change... so if you do not want to see the homes and fields destroyed... get in there and Battle On!

And if you DO... get in there and Battle On!

Out-of-character explanation: the player-monster names in /creekattack are ALL taken from other real players. Any player on your server when you join it has a chance for their name to appear to YOU as a monster. 

Willowcreek 50% Chaos War Challenge!

EVERYONE loves a challange, and we've got a reeeeeeeeally good one for you to start this war off right!

Alliance: If you hit 50% before the Chaos faction, the damage done to Willowcreek will begin to reverse!

Legion of Chaos: If you hit 50% before the Alliance faction, the villagers you are attacking in /creekattack will become Chaorrupted enough to take on the "Chaos" racial tendencies (which will make them weak to Chaos damage!)

Willowcreek Treasure Chest: The FIRST side to hit 50% will ALSO unlock the Willowcreek Treasure Chest, which has several exclusive items locked inside! Once the chest is unlocked, farm the monsters in your map for the Willowcreek key!

Winning Wars in AQW: A Guide

How to fight Wars in AQWorlds

Battle alongside your fellow heroes to defeat your enemies to save the world... or destroy it! For many of you, this will be the FIRST war you've ever fought in, and you're in LUCK! This is the BIGGEST, CRAZIEST, most CHAOTIC war AQWorlds has ever seen!

But if you're not sure how to fight in an AQWorlds war, then read on!

  • Choose a side: You can choose to battle FOR Chaos or defend the town against it.
  • War Meter:  Defeat your opponents to earn war tokens, then turn them in to increase the war meter. When the meter hits 100%, it unlocks the war boss.
  • War Tokens: There are two different kinds of tokens. Turning in 30 regular tokens to increases the meter by a regular amount. Turn in mega tokens to increase the meter by DOUBLE the normal amount.
  • Goals: Raising the war meter unlocks special achievements - special shops, challenge fights, cutscenes, or the war boss (once the meter hits 100%).  Defeat the war boss unlocks a cutscene, then advance to the next stage of the war.

You and the rest of the heroes in Lore will all be fighting together to reach a common goal: victory! With every additional hero who battles in the war, you'll reach the 100% mark that much faster... and that means you'll unlock the rewards and storyline ending sooner, too!

Scouts report in!

It is the eve of war...

Starting last weekend, Alliance scouts reported that chaos monsters from across the land suddenly left their positions and headed towards mount Doomskull. We believe that the 13th Lord of Chaos, whomever that may be, will lead their forces to attack us on Friday... but we do not know where.

We sent our most talented scouts & rangers to steal the Chaos Attack Plans. But thus far, none have returned. We need to know where the attack will take place... alliance forces are too spread out, and too few following the battles against the first 12 Chaos Lords.

Perhaps if you can find a Chaos Warlord, you can obtain the plans. (I wonder where a Chaos boss would wait while preparing for the start of a Chaos war...)

Friday: Lore's Luck Runs Out

Friday the 13th AND the start of World War Lore!

Join us this Friday as the 13th Lord of Chaos prepares to launch the first strike against the Alliance of Order! This Friday, one VERY unlucky town will be hit without warning, and we will need ALL our forces to combat the Chaos creatures that invade...

The Day of Doom is at hand!

The 13th Lord of Chaos will be leading the attack this Friday, which means if YOU remain free of Chaorruption, you will need to strap on your hardest helm, sharpen your strongest blade, and bring all your friends, because the defense of Lore rests with you!*

This means there will be TWO war meters for each town attacked (and believe me, Chaos is NOT going to stop at one)! One meter will be for those attacking and one for those defending the unlucky town.*

* This will not be PVP, but those of your fighting for the forces of Chaos just might recognize some of the monsters... they'll be your fellow heroes! O_O

Friday the 13th Limited Time Shop!

Normally (as if THAT happens in AQW!!!), Friday the 13th brings a huge (horribly unlucky) event with musical guest star, Voltaire. But if you've read the info above, you know that we've already got more bad juju than we can handle! So while he jets off to parts unknown for another recording session, WE are going to keep things moving in a chaotic direction with the World War Lore event and a limited time shop!

Do you feel unlucky, punk?

This Friday, you'll find:

  • Blackhole of Despair set
  • Unluckiest Carver set
  • Chaotic Tophat (designed by your fellow Hero, Boxer502)
  • and more!

Keep an eye on the Design Notes for more teasers, letters, and notes from Artix about what's to come! Prepare yourselves, heroes, because Chaos. Is. Coming!

The 13th Lord of Chaos arrives!

Friday… they will lead the forces of chaos to destroy our world

“I thought I had seen every crazy thing possible in our world… but I never dreamed of seeing something like this. Our jaws dropped to the floor when the identity of the 13th and final Lord of Chaos was revealed. “Impossible!” many cried. “How can this be!?” asked the wide-eyed and trembling guards assigned to protect the lands between our home of Battleon and Drakath’s lair at Mount Doom Skull.

It is known to us that THIS FRIDAY the 13th Lord of Chaos will lead their forces on an all out attack. It has been said that every Chaos Lord has had the potential to wipe us out and actually win… but this time, it might actually happen. We are currently rallying ALL forces to battle against… try to stop… *shakes head* I am at a loss for words. I still cannot believe this is happening… this Friday we MUST stop the 13th Lord of Chaos from marching their forces to Battleon! As soon as our scouts return… we will coordinate our defense!”

The War of Lore & Roleplaying

There are a few things you need to know right now….

 The War will be live and in real time

  • There are two sides: 
    Chaos vs the Alliance (Good & Evil Truce)
  • Everyone can join the Defenders and attempt to stop Chaos’s progress
  • Only players who completed the main storyline can join Chaos. 
    It is understood that Chaos has a serious advantage in this war. Especially the areas closer to Mount Doom Skull.
  • Battles are determined by the “War Meter” 
    Each side will have a “war meter.” It will fill up every time you or other players on your side complete an objective. In other words… the combined efforts of you and everyone on your side will determine victory.
  • The outcome of a battle is permanent… 
    If an area of the game is destroyed, or if an NPC is kills -- it is permanent. It is potentially possible for entire areas of the game to be permanently damaged, changed, or destroyed. It is also possible for new areas to be created depending on which side wins or loses a battle.
  • Major War plot events HAVE NOT BEEN WRITTEN ON PURPOSE!
    That is right. You and your fellow players will be determining what happens by your actions… and we build the game around what happens. This whole thing is going to be live, organic, and unpredictably awesome. We have not done something this dynamic and wild since the wars in the original AdventureQuest.

History is about to be made, and this is your opportunity to be a part of it. If you are currently caught up with the main storyline, then you already know you have the most important role in what is currently happening. We ask that you roleplay your character in the war.

Whether you are good or evil… allow yourself to play along. You will have chances in the story to make important decisions. Also, in between battles, it is perfectly fine to go (OOC) Out of character. Never feel pressure to roleplay outside of the war. Just have lots of fun--  this is going to be some serious crazy fun.

Battle On…. Friday!

Update Maker

June 07, 2014

MOST Chaotic Release EVER

SQUASHING Drakath's Chaos-inspired Bugs!

WOW, when we began planning the Chaos Saga finale (this is NOT the end of AQWorlds, we've got a ton of stories left to tell and battles to win!), we knew a lot of Chaos would be involved, but last night's release went way beyond expected!

You want to beat Chaos as much as WE do, so here's an update about what we're doing to fix some of the issues you experienced.

The main bug with the release comes down to an ordering issue, where the Yokai Portal wasn't appearing, but its cutscene was. So if you had most of the 12 Lords of Chaos storylines complete (as many of you did), you were able to complete the release without a problem.

If you didn't, though... you got stuck, and THAT is what we're fixing today!* The fixed map is up for testing now, and we expect to have the new map out to you all later today.

Today's other changes 

  • The /intochaos map has been removed. It has been replaced by the Mount DoomSkull map.
  • Two new quests with higher rep have been added to the Mount DoomSkull map if you've faced Drakath. (Later today they will be available for everyone)

Changes still to come

  • Adding "Replay Cutscene" buttons
  • The new and old versions of the merged Daimyo pets will arrive later today
  • Two new quests with higher rep have been added to the Mount DoomSkull map if you've faced Drakath. (Later today they will be available for everyone)
  • Next week: we are going to add "skip buttons" to many of the minigames in the main Chaos storylines. You'll need to try completing them a couple times, but if you can't, you'll be able to move past them.
  • Next week: The Legend Skip button will return. Legends will be able to skip the first 12 storylines and get right to confronting Drakath!

Thank you all for battling alongside us as we work to defeat Drakath AND the bugs his Chaos brought in. You are the reason we're here, and your strengh, skill, and determiniation are why we're going to be here for a LONG time to come!

* Our testers ran through the map for HOURS last night; I am pretty sure they battled harder than they ever have, and I could not be more proud of how hard they worked. This was a tricky issue to find and fix, even with hours of testing, but we're back on track!

Chaos Slayer: Moglin

June 06, 2014

Chaos Slayer Class

Unleash Your Inner Chaos!

Tonight, you'll battle up to the top of Mount DoomSkull and face Drakath to unlock the Chaos Slayer class shop. Once unlocked, you'll be able to get Chaos Slayer for 2000 ACs, or for 100,000 gold if you have reached rank 10 Chaos Rep.

Like a chaorrupted superhero team.

 

Choose Your Form!

You'll be able to choose what appearance your personal Chaos Slayer takes - mage, healer, rogue or berzerker. Your class skills will remain the same no matter what choice you make. For Slayers who prefer a different skill set, each of these looks will also be available as an armor. (Healer will not be available as an option until next week - Dage is still working his magic on the art!)

A full class writeup is coming next week, but here's a quick and dirty preview of the skills:

  • Chaos Blade (auto attack): The Chaos Slayer's weapon attacks are empowered by Chaos making any weapon strike hit like a blade made of pure chaos. Every strike draws in more Chaos blight. Hits up to 3 targets. If you are Chaorrupted, this becomes a single-target ability.
  • Chaorruption (rank 1): Let the Chaorruption take over and render your physical form. Deals moderate damage and Chaorrupts the Chaos Slayer, increasing crit and hit chance by 10% and focusing all attacks on a single target.
  • Enigma (rank 2): Chaos is the unpredictable power shrouded in mystery. What effects will be inflicted onto your targets? Deals no damage and randomly applies up to 4 effects. Hits up to 6 targets, but will become a single-target ability if you are Chaorrupted.
  • Surge (rank 3): Summon Chaotic forces to mend your wounds or protect your physical form. Either heals you for a moderate amount over 6 seconds or places a defensive buff significantly reducing all incoming damage for 8 seconds.
  • Enmity (rank 4 passive): Endurance increased by 25%.
  • Ultimate Power (rank 4 passive): Chaos, the power within, consumes you.
  • Pandemonium (rank 5): Create even more Chaos with a massive explosion, hitting up to 6 targets and evolving all effects from Enigma into more powerful effects. If you are Chaorrupted, this becomes a single-target ability.
  • Spell Disruption (rank 10 passive): Spell damage taken is reduced by 35%.

Make a Profile Picture

New Character Page Feature!

This is something I have been wanting to make for years. Now you can hit the camera button on your AQWorld's Profile Page to create and download a custom profile pic. Use it with Facebook, Twitter, or any of those MyInstaTumblrSpace type things. It is really easy to use... and advanced userswill be happy to know output is 800x800 and one of the background options (the one that looks black) is actually transparent so you can use the image in photoshop to make your own custom stuff. Also, I cleaned up the page a bit and added a search box at the bottom. So you can type in your character name there and it will just bring up your character page.

Other News

  • Captain Rhubarb purged 32 thousand inactive accounts from 2008 so there are now more names available
  • Zhoom & Yorumi fixed a server memory leak bug which solved the slow monster respawn issue after a server was running for several days.
  • I have been working with the artists on cleaning up the existing AQWorlds Interface with improved artwork. After showing a few things on my official Artix Twitter it became very clear that players do not want any major changes to the shapes of things in the interface, but do like the upgraded artwork. So... that is exactly what we are going to do!

Chaos Slayer Class!

Fight fire with fire, Xan always says, and Chaos with Chaos! Tonight, you'll find out how you can use Drakath's power against him... AND choose what the appearance of your personal Chaos Slayer Class!(After all, if you're fighting Chaos, you should blend in, right?)

Lorepedia Lives!

And it needs YOUR help!

Sora here,

Not that long ago I took over the Lorepedia page for AQW.  My team and I are in the works to bring some major updates to it.  Some have already started, as in the new Staff Pages, but we need a lot more help for you guys.



Maya Wants You!

What is Lorepedia?

For everyone who might not know, Lorepedia is a giant encyclopedia dedictated to all things involving AQWorlds.  Right now it lists Classes, Staff, Enhancements, a list of Badges, etc, anything a new or even seasoned player might need information on.  Sadly a lot of it now is out of date.

Areas that are currently being worked on;

  • Updating the classes list
  • Making a Chaos Storyline walk thru guide
  • Staff pages for ALL our games


Mobius Walk-thru

How you can help!

We want your ideas - Lorepedia is your guide to the game! What better way then to find out how to make it better then by asking the players?  Tweet ideas to AQWLorepedia, the official twitter account for Lorepedia.  Also the forum has an entire section for ideas.  Have an awesome picture of you and friends taking down a Chaos Lord? Post it and it could be used in the Storyline Guide.  Have an idea for a section that doesn't exist, or is there a current section that you feel needs more love? (Classes...yes I know...) tweet and post your thoughts.

I can't wait to see your ideas and please follow AQWLorepedia for updates!

Drakath is Waiting...

"The future is not yet written... the purple ink will not let it dry."

"The future is not yet written... the purple ink will not let it dry."

"The future is not yet written... the purple ink will not let it dry."

She just keeps repeating these words over and over in the dark room. The young girl traded her sight for the curse of seeing the future. It was the only way to save her brother. A dark pact made with a being that no human should ever bargain with. She sees what is about to happen to our world. She saw you...  the hero, and she saw your secret. She knows what you truly are. She you and your allies facing the 13th and final Lord of Chaos. An unpredictable war that did not follow the rules and changes everything...

The world torn asunder, entire Kingdoms destroyed and changed never to be the same again. She saw lands that could never be drawn on any map. She saw madness. She saw what the gate behind Drakath is for. She saw Drakath's true power... and how he acquired these powers. She saw what happens when Gravelyn finally has the opportunity to avenge what he did to her Father. She saw what everything we have done together was leading up to. She saw you alone, in a duel to the death with the Champion of Chaos, Drakath. She saw our world's final stand....  She saw it happening THIS SUMMER.

"The future is not yet written... the purple ink will not let it dry."

"The future is not yet written... the purple ink will not let it dry."

This Friday, battle up Mount DoomSkull to come face-to-face with Drakath, Champion of Chaos!

Mod vs Dev vs Tester

Know The Difference

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

How to become a Mod/Tester/Dev

As we need help moderating, making, and testing AQW, we bring on more people to help. Moderators and Testers are usually loyal fans and supports of the game who are helpful and patient with new players, fun, friendly yet responsible with the other experienced players. Many Developers are also loyal fans who have the art or writing skill we need to make AQWorlds.

For the most part being a Mod or Tester or Dev is a volunteer position, although they do enjoy other rewards like free memberships, free ACs and access to pretty much any item they would like. Some volunteer dev positions may turn into full-time gigs on the AQW team. The Help Team does not use volunteer help because account information is sensitive, and we do EVERYTHING we can to protect your info.

Gold Names: What They Mean

If you see someone with a gold name inside AQWorlds, that means they work directly on the game in some capacity: devs, mods, game testers, or Player Support. Although we all have gold names, we have very different responsibilities, and the criteria we use to finds Mods is very different from what we look for in potential Devs or Testers.

There are three types of testers*: game, bug, and website. Game testers test releases, and have a gold name inside AQW. Bug and Web testers (and any other AE staff who do not work on AQW) do not have gold names; they focus on many games in our network, and our server hamsters would run away squealing if it weren't for them!

*Testers usually start out by being a mod or dev on another game. RARELY we will put out a call for new testing help. I think that's only ever happened once or twice before, though.

Summer of Chaos 2014

Friday: the 13 Lords of Chaos Saga Finale! 

Drakath, the Champion of Chaos, waits for you at the top of Mount DoomSkull this weekend! Battle your way up the treacherous mountain, defeat Chaorrupted creatures, and remember your victory over (or defeat for the first time) each of the first 12 Lords of Chaos! The Summer of Chaos starts this Friday!

Drakath is waiting!

Summer of Chaos Schedule

We are going to start this summer off with an EXPLOSIVE event: Drakath is waiting for you at the top of Mount DoomSkull, and the Champion of Chaos is growing impatient! 

Who are you rooting for? #TeamAlliance? Or #TeamChaos?

  • June 6: 13th Lord of Chaos
  • June 13: “Hero Attacks Lore: Part 1” - Attack on Willowcreek
  • June 20: “Hero Attacks Lore: Part 2” - Battle to Save the Vampire Queen
  • June 27: “Hero Attacks Lore: Part 3” - Conquest of Lair / Chaos Beast Gauntlet
  • July 3: Legend-only Dungeons release
  • July 11: Battleon PVP: Alliance vs Chaos
  • July 18: Drakath’s Story 1
  • July 25: Drakath’s Story 2
  • August 1: Death’s Judgement, Gravelyn’s Choice
  • August 8: Shadowfall Rises
  • August 15: Dragon Hero vs Dragon Drakath/Queen of Monsters
  • August 22: Into Chaos: Chaos Lord Gauntlet

This Friday: Conquer Mount DoomSkull!

In order to reach the top of Mount DoomSkull and face Drakath, you'll need to battle your way throgh a mountain's worth of Chaos monsters AND have completed each of the previous Chaos storylines to advance further.*


This week, we are going to add helper NPCs to some of the more complex storylines (like Chronospan and Bloodtusk), as well as adding in a "Skip" button if you cannot pass minigames attached to main storylines areas.

What happens once you hit the top of the mountain? Log in this weekend to see! If you survive, you'll be able to unlock the Chaos Slayer Class for rank 10 Chaos Rep OR purchase it for 2000 AdventureCoins! Stay tuned for more art previews next week!

* If you are a Legend, you can choose to skip through each of the portals all the way up to the top. Bonus! (Though you REALLY should play through all the storylines to understand what is happening!

PS: The Chaorrupter Locked weapon evolves either this Friday or Monday!

PPS: Some of you will remember the "Into Chaos" release that we launched several months ago. That was all a halluncination induced by Drakath to make you THINK your battle was almost over! How very, very wrong he was! (The rewards from that release will be available this Summer. We have reworked the opening of the 13th Lord of Chaos Saga and think you will enjoy THIS version much, MUCH better!)
