Become a Legion Paladin

Legion Paladin Class Skills Breakdown

Legion Paladins are the dishonest and evil protectors of… DAGE and DAGENESS! Heh, but really... You used to be a Paladin and now you’re the undead minion of a seemingly invincible armored lich. Use your skill in both light and darkness to strike down all who oppose.. Whatever you believe you’re fighting for.

How to Unlock Legion Paladin Class

When you buy a Legion Armor T-shirt or Paladin Armor T-shirt from Heromart.com, each comes with an awesome weapon and half of the "Legion Paladin" class. Combine both halves to create the full class in AdventureQuest Worlds! Themed after the shirts... we merged Artix's Paladin armor and Dage's Paragon armor together into a horrifying and powerful new class. 

  • Get the Legion Light of Destiny when you buy the Legion Armor T-Shirt
  • Get the Purified Caladbolg Sword when you buy the Paladin Armor T-Shirt
  • Get the Legion Paladin CLASS when you buy both T-shirts

Legion Paladin Class Skills

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

Extirpate: 15 Mana, 5 second cooldown

Increases damage taken by 10% while increasing damage done by 25% for 6 seconds.

Mending Gloom: 30 Mana, 8 second cooldown

Heals up to 2 friendly targets.

Shadowlight Spear: 32 Mana, 12 second cooldown

Does increased damage, but applies Bones Aflame, doing DoT damage to yourself.

Shadowplate & Penumbra Rank 4 Passives

Increases your endurance by 15%
Reduces damage taken from spells by 25%

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

Soul Breaching: 15 Mana, 12 second cooldown

Damages enemies while enhancing mana regeneration with a guaranteed crit.

Overall View of the Class

Legion Paladins gain mana when they strike an enemy in combat. Most prefer strength, intellect but don't mind endurance and dexterity.

  • Medium healing + mana support. 
  • High damage, no AoE. 
  • Works well as a hybrid. 
  • No bonuses or debuffs to your own or enemy hit chance or haste. 
  • Huge damage but comes with a price.. one you’re totally capable of healing right back.

Survive the Feast of souls

Save Battleon from the Undead Legion Attack!

The Harvest Fest has come, and all across Lore, heroes are gathering together. In the Underworld, Dage the Evil is preparing a celebration, too - a Feast of Souls! He's sending some VERY special guests to the Battleon feast, because this is the PERFECT time to gather the ingredients for HIS feast: NEW SOULS!

This feast is to DIE for!

Talk to Dage in Battleon to go to the /feastofsouls map and begin the war to save Battleon! His recruiter is ready to reap the darkest harvest, but if you survive, the rewards will be to die for!

War Objectives!

Dage's motives are VERY simple, and so are yours! After you watch the opening cutscene (and decide whether to taste the appetizer) in /feastofsouls, talk to Twilly to go to your battle map.

AQW Hero Rock lea says: TASTE MY BLADE!

In /harvestslayer:

  • Battle with your fellow heroes to save Battleon, the Harvest Fest, and your soul.
  • Turn in Slayer Medals to raise your war meter

In /harvestzombie:

  • Battle for the Legion to gather new souls for Dage AND add a permanent recruitment outpost in Battleon!
  • Turn in Rage Medals to raise your war meter

The side with the highest war meter by Friday evening will win!

War Rare Gear!

Dage's minions are out in FORCE this weekend, and you're getting a glimpse of some never-before-seen legion warriors! Take a look in the Feast of Souls Rares shop and you'll find...


So. Many. KATANAS!

  • the Abomineator set
  • the Rampage Blademaster set
  • the Legion Bank Guard Bank pet
  • and more!

Once the boss battles unlock this Friday, you'll get access to even MORE gear as you farm for the reward drops!

Update: Zorbak leaned on the "WAR OFF" button to be a little stinker. We've slightly reduced the war total, and turned the war button to ON, and given both sides 5000 waves so they start out on the same footing.

In addition to providing A LOT more writing room for each day of the month, every page depicts a different Dragon type, ranging from Slime Dragons to Faerie Dragons to even the 3-Headed Trigoras Dragon.

Dragon's Dawn is Live

Let the Hunt for the First Chosen One Begin!

It has been foretold: 12 VERY SPECIAL eggs are about to hatch, and one day, the descendants of those dragons will be the most powerful of their kind... but many dangers may befall young creatures in the world of Lore. To the west of the Dragon's Lair lies a cave... and deep inside it lies the hoard of Ektorax the Slime Dragon! 

The hunt begins tonight!

We do not know if he is friend or foe, but DragonMaster StoneScythe is sure of ONE thing - no one can tame and raise this dragon better than Lore's most-skilled Hero: YOU! This weekend, battle through /ectocave to find the first egg; save it now so that one day its hatchling and his children may work to create a new realm! 

Dragon's Hoard of Rewards!

When you're a DragonMaster, you need to look AND battle the part! That's why once you defeat Ektorax, you can begin a farming for the resources to create the full DragonMaster set... along with all the gear in the merge shop! 

In the Merge Shop, you'll find: 

  • Slimed Dragon Rogue Armor set
  • Ektorax Pet 
  • Slimed DragonMaster Scythe 
  • Slime Gear (cape, sword, slime helms) 

You got SLIMED! (Said no hero ever)

Ektorax drops:

  • Dragon Rogue Armor set 
  • Ichorus Egg (required to merge for the Ektorax Pet)
  • Ichorus Egg Nest house item
  • Ektorakx Slime Pet

Back to the Dragon's Lair

The Dragon's Dawn: Hunt for the Chosen Ones release takes us back to one of AQWorlds' most well-known and popular maps: the dragon-themed dungeon crawl in /lair... and our release aims to capture that dragonbattle-ready spirit once more! 

You can use this area as a farming zone or, if you're more interested in the story, you can accept DragonMaster StoneScythes quests to hunt for the Egg of Ichorus.

Talk to DragonMaster StoneScythe in /ectocave

Many of you who've played our single-player RPG, DragonFable, know about DragonLords - heroes who have a deep, psychic bond with their dragon companion thanks to the Dragon Amulet. DragonMasters are KIND OF like that, but without the psychic bond (or amulet). Many of them revere or respect dragonkind. They are not a group just out to abuse and exploit them. (*Cough* DragonMaster FROSTSCYTHE)

Happy Birthday, Memet!

AQW's Nightmare Moglin Levels Up in Real Life!

In Lore, you don't GET presents for your birthday, you GIVE them! And that's why you should head to Battleon now: Memet, AQW's assistant game lead, has created a TON of heartbreakingly-cute hedgehog-themed gear for you to hunt for! 

Hologram Memet's Birthday Hunt Clues!

Because Memet is on vacation, she can't be in Battleon with you, but DID send a hologram to offer you the clues you'll need to find these ridiculously-adorable gear. OR you can just read the clues here!

I am a moglin nightmarish, as dark as dark can be. But I love a little hedgehog - my Hermes is sweet as can be. If you want I will dream up a Hermes just waiting to travel with you. But you'll have to fight to find him... and I've got some clues, I do!

  • The biggest, furriest beasts are no match for wee little, spiky Hermes. 
  • Neither tusks nor teeth nor fangs nor fur can keep him from you!
  • No wings, though. Hermeses don't fly, and neither do the creatures who have them.

Happy Birthday, Memet! 

Memet started working for Artix Entertainment in the Player Support department... until we saw how amazing she was as an artist and kidnapped her! Memet battles day in and night out creating amazing art for AQWorlds. She also works with Reens as the assistant game lead, helping with writing, making art, and mentoring AQWorlds' volunteer artists.

Wish her a Happy Birthday on Twitter, then head to Battleon to get her hint and start hunting!

  • Hedgie Waif-er Hat
  • Hedgie Waif-ette Hat
  • Memet Hearts Hermes Pet
  • Hermes Hoglets Pet
  • Memet Mount Cape
  • Heart For Hermes Helm 
  • Triple Heart Hermes Helm 

Tomorrow the Memet + Hermes Bank Pet will release, too!

Q&A with the Mods!

Answer All The Questions!

Sora here,

Anytime I go in game I’m always bombarded with questions from players, everything from “Who are you?”, “What do you do?”, “Is BLANK item going rare.”, “Can I have ACs”.  Answer to the last one is easy.  No.


Being a Moderator* you get a lot of the same questions from players either in game or via social media.  So I had the Mod team list their most frequently asked questions, here is what they came up with.

FAQ’s for Mods

Q: What do you do as a Moderator?
A: We moderate the game keeping it safe from scammers/traders and anyone breaking the chat rules.  This is done by going through the reports players make using the tools in game.  Every report submitted is read by a mod.  All Moderators are part-time volunteer staff who mod when they have the time.

Q: How do you become a Moderator?
A: You’ll need to keep an eye on the DN, when new mods are needed the application information will be posted.  And you must be 18.

Q: Why hasn’t this person been muted/banned.
A: Mod must go off what is seen in the report.  If there is nothing to mute/ban the person for then they are not.

Q: The player called me a Noob, why isn’t s/he muted.
A: Noob is not a mutable offense as it does not break the chat rules.  If a player is doing this simply /ignore them and continue playing.

Q: I reported this person hours ago for filter evasion, how come they’re not muted yet?
A: Reports are logged until a Moderator looks at them, which means it might be a while until a report is processed.  Being strictly voluntary staff Mods can’t patrol 24/7 but keep in mind all reports are read and dealt with.  If a player is harassing you always /report and /ignore and change rooms if needed.  Ignoring a player makes it so they cannot follow you if your /goto is still on and you can always turn that off.   /Ignore a wonderful feature so you use.

Q: Can you mute/ban me for a few minutes?
A: No, only players who break the rules are muted/banned, it’s not a tool used for entertainment.

Q:Can you unmute/unban my friend/me?
A: If you’ve been muted/banned you can contact the Help Desk.  Mods cannot undo this.

Q: Someone is trading via FB/Twitter, do something.
A: We can only deal with players in game through the /report function.  

Q: Someone hacked my account, can you get it back?
A: Moderators do not have access to account information, if you’ve been hacked you must contact the Help Desk.

Q: Can you put (insert item) in game.
A: No, Mods do not have access to putting anything in game.

Q: I have a screenshot of this player trading/cursing.
A: Screenshots are not accepted as they can be altered, always use the /report feature.

What makes a good report

Good reports include reporting a player for asking for a trade, asking password, threatening to hack someone, evading the chat filter, excessive harassment and inappropriate usernames and guilds.

Example:  “Player is asking me my password.” “Player is asking if I want to trade.”


You tell 'em!

Here's a handy guide on How To Report a Player in AQW.

Players blocking NPCs, spamming class skills or being /afk in PVP are not good reports as normally by the time a moderator sees them the player has logged off.  Also none of these break the chat rules, which as explained above is a Mods main duty.   It's best to just change rooms when you see any of this happening.

New Mods

I’ll also take this time to introduce some new mods who just passed their training, made it out alive and are now running around the game with fresh gold names**.  Please welcome,

Aren
Eeriat
Furious George
JulieKheel
Occavatra
Pontus
Rexim
Saturn801
Shadow Sword
Vasuri

*Remember there are several different kinds of staff in game though we all have gold names, not everyone is a mod.
** Their names are so fresh they're not listed on the staff page yet, I'll be doing that soon.

One More Thing

Remember mods cannot do our jobs without the help of you.  Every report we read is because of the awesome players who want to keep AQW safe.  Anytime you see someone breaking the rules /report them and we will deal with it. 

We want to make AQW the safest game on the net and we will with the help of all of you!!  We mods thank you for your help!!

November is Dragon Month

All Dragons, All Month Long in AQWorlds!

Dragons are some of the most powerful, majestic, and magical creatures on Lore... and hands-down one of the most popular monsters in-game to battle for or against. We LOVE featuring them in releases because if any of Lore's denizens deserves an entire month devoted to celebrating them, it's dragons!

Ektorax the Ancient waits for you next Friday!

That's why we've got a dragon's lair-sized batch of content coming your way showcasing your favorite beasts to slay (or save, for you dracomancers)! Check out the dragontastic lineup of gear coming your way:

Draconic DoomKnight AC Package

Starting this Friday, November 14, at 12:01 AM, buy any AC package of $10 USD or more (that's the 2000, 5000, or 12,000 AC packages) to unlock the Draconic DoomKnight gear! Get ALL the details in this Design Notes post!

  • Get the 4 armor set item with the 2000 AC package
  • Get 6 items with the 5000 AC package
  • Get all 11 items with the 12000 AC package

Dragon's Dawn and Limited Quantity Sets

NEXT Friday, November 21, 2014, we will release the Dragon's Dawn: Hunt for the Ancients dungeon crawl and world hunt release to celebrate the imminent release of our newest mobile game: AQ:Dragons!

After you're doing battling to secure the future of the Great Dragons' bloodlines, check out the gear in our Dragon's Dawn Limited Quantity Shop!

The first LQS gear preview comes from from AQWorlds' artist Memet,** and showcases the Sheng Chi Guardian! When she jumps into battle in online MMOs, she rolls with a horde of Trollish monks. After all the dark dragon gear we've been releasing recently, she was inspired to create gear that would speak to the monks and mages among you as we prepare for all the battles and wars set to erupt over the next few weeks.

Also featured in next week's Limited Quantity Sets:

  • the Dragon's Altar House
  • Dage's Underworld Skull House
  • the ShadowWyrm and BrightWyrm pets

** She is now officially AQWorlds' DragonLady, having almost-singlehandedly created the majority of November's Dragon-themed gear these last few weeks!

2015 Calendar: Chrono DragonKnight Class

The 2015 Calendar should arrive this week or next, and will start shipping soon! Keep an eye on the Design Notes for the Chrono DragonKnight Class Skills breakdown, and keep checking HeroMart for news on the exact release date!

The 2015 Calendar is FULL of some of the most amazing art we've ever made (seriously, the work Dage, Oishii, Thyton, and the other team members have done is incredible), and I am so glad we have 12 months of it to look forward to!

Hunger Games and Harvest Fest

Friday: Battle to Survive... the Extinction Games!

No one ever stops to think about where their food comes from, you know? But this weekend, when machines develop a taste for heroism, you're going to need to keep your wits AND your blade sharp, because you and all the factory workers are on the menu! 


MockingSlayer: Hero Under Fire

After one of Lore's most state-of-the-art meat-processing factories receives the deadliest operating system upgrade, it begins a deadly game... and its victory means TOTAL HUMAN ANNIHILATION!

Overseer SN.O.W. wants to see you FAIL!

If you don’t want to feed this machine’s desire for destruction, you’ll have to battle alongside Katnip through the Packaging district to rescue the factory workers trapped inside before they are purified, processed, and pureed! 

Hunger Games Meets Harvest Fest
Pink Slime is made of PEOPLE! PEEEEEEEEEEOPPPPLLLLLE!

If you want to hit the #1 spot on the Hero Leaderboard, you've got to save Meeta, Kale, and Katnip from becoming the main course!

The Dark Harvest Month Is Here

Prepare for a Fall Feast... OF SOULS!

November is traditionally a time of endings: summer is over, the days grow shorter, and Mogloween shops leave for another year. But it is ALSO a time full of life and riches: the harvest comes in, people begin planning for the holidays, and the hunt begins as we prepare for our holidays feasts!

In this Friday's release, you will find all the previous year's Harvest maps and adventures, as well as returning seasonal rare armors, weapons, pets and other items. Talk to Oishii in the /cornycopia map to get your Dark Harvest adventures underway!

You once again have the chance to get the seasonal Kung Food Fighter Achievement Badge by pelting your fellow players with food and Members can unlock the Turdraken Member Only Area with its own special unlockable shop and Seasonal house!

This year, though, you won't need to do all the previous years' releases to access the Dark Harvest event coming at the end of the month:

Dark Harvest: A Feast of Souls!

That's right, Heroes, something is rotten in the Underworld, but only the most suspicious of Battleonians has begun sniffing around for news of the coming Feastocalypse. Just be warned, when someone offers you a tempting, tantalizing, possibly terrifying plate of deliciousness... think long and hard whether you'll accept it. And remember: the sharpest knives cut through the toughest of opponents AND meals!

That turdrakolich is about to be de-boned!

Friday: BrightFall Commander 12 Month Upgrade Set

This Friday at 12:01 AM, our newest 12 month upgrade set from Dage* will release: the BrightFall Commander!** Once it does, all you'll need to do to unlock one of our most blindingly-brilliant sets all the Legend-only perks (like battlepets, free Treasure Chest Keys, two exclusive servers, extra ACs, and more) is:

  1. Purchase a 12 month membership through the Upgrades page, the Portal site, or the in-game payment window
  2. Head in-game to your Book of Lore and go to the "Other Badges" tab

Reminder: the Forsaken Warlock Tier package leaves on November 7th, but until then, if you buy the Dark DragonMaster set with a 5k or 12k AC package, you will ALSO get the Forsaken Warlock gear which comes with your purchase!  

* Keep an eye on his Twitter page for previews!
** Inspired by the work of longtime AQWorlds player and artist, Reki!

PS: The Unholy armor set of Vokun arrived in his shop earlier today. Get ready to farm, Vokun fans!
