AQWorlds Patch Notes

Check the list of bug fixes to see what the team has addressed

Reens, Cemaros and the AQW Bug Hunter team are busy squashing the bugs you submit each week to the Bug Tracker at www.Artix.com/bugs.

Please do not send non-release bugs on Twitter.  They will get lost.  Make sure you send bug report forms!

Check back weekly to see if the bug you reported has been addressed.  Please remember that not all bugs are "easy fixes" so some reported and confirmed bugs from each week may not be on the fixed list as they will require more time or a different person to fix them.

If you would like to know how the reports go from you to fixed, check this page:
http://www.aq.com/lore/guides/BugReportFAQ

Bug Fixes:

  1. Facebook login button fixed.
  2. Replay cutscene button on Iadoa in /aqlesson fixed.
  3. Cutscene at /ravinetemple no longer dumping you in a blank room.
  4. Portal in /twilight now sends you to the /nexus again.
  5. Typos.  Always typos!  MORE TYPOS!

Art Fixes:

  1. Helms from Void Dragonlord bonus package fixed.
  2. Female Void Dragonlord fixed.
  3. Slayer Recruit's and Noble Recuit’s helm fixes to put chin piece in place.
  4. Human looking Aria in the Pet Store in Battleontown has regained her mouth and stopped giving people the evil eye. (Which version you see depends on where you are in the story)
  5. Gravelyn in /gravestrike and /shadowstrike has been convinced to stop flirting.

Not Fixed & Why:

  1. Moonstone Cultist armour is non-standard.  It has a skull head.  The neckline is shaped for that head, not for when you equip a morph helm.
  2. OverSoul Paladin is also a non-standard armour.
  3. Enchanted Void Aura Cape, Enchanted Void Cape, Enchanted Void Dragon Cape - we cannot make the green fur CC as there is simply no available options to set the CC to.  Anything it could be set to would make the same colour as something else and that is not how it was intended to be.

This is exactly the way Milton sent the file, so it will have to remain as is.  See this Design Notes post for more information about this issue.

New additions to the Featured Gear Shop this Friday are:

New Bank Pet: DragonSlayer Twilly's Baby Dragon

The DragonSlayer Twilly Bank Pet (with no baby dragon included) will be permanently available in the Great Fire War merge shop for 2,000 AdventureCoins.

AQWorlds Patch Notes

Check the list of bug fixes to see what the team has addressed

Reens, Cemaros and the AQW Bug Hunter team are busy squashing the bugs you submit each week to the Bug Tracker at www.Artix.com/bugs.

If you would like to know how the reports go from you to fixed, check this page:
http://www.aq.com/lore/guides/BugReportFAQ

Bug fixes:

  1. Furry Li'l Top Hat Nibbler gold boost fixed.
  2. Black Dragon Ninja sword rarity changed to Rare.
  3. Omniramis WingMaster Horns and Omniramis WingMaster Locks names were backwards.  Not anymore.
  4. “Recycle, Rebuild, Rescue” quest reworded to be more clear on instructions.
  5. Various typos.

Art Fixes:

  1. Elite Beastmaster male hand now turns correct CC colour.
  2. Eye of Astaroth Blade Pet untilted.
  3. Vampire Dragon bank pet no longer being overly affectionate.
  4. Cyber Blood of Nulgath female eyes now correctly CC’d.
  5. Dark Bloodtear lightning animation now consistently coloured.
  6. Djinn Summoner Scarf CC issues fixed.
  7. Dark Noble Garb female fixes - busted back arm, pink outlines, skirt misaligned.

Not Fixed & Why:

  1. Shielded DragonKnight’s shield - this is a non-standard armour.
  2. Crows Team male purple part showing near shoulder area is intentional. It’s part of the shoulder pad.  Female doesn’t have it because she doesn’t have shoulder pads.

Since I've run out of idea for the Extra section and haven't been getting a lot of questions, it will now be swapped out for the Not Fixed section.  This will not include any reports that need someone other than Reens or myself to fix them as those get sent to the person who needs to look into them.

2018 Surfboard Design Contest

Ready to paddle out and make some radical art?

Summer is coming, and that means two things - one, SURF'S UP! And two, Surfboard weapons return to Artix Entertainment's games! This year, we're holding an all-game surfboard design. We'll take your ideas and turn them into works of KILLER (wave) art, dude! So hang onto your helms as you hang ten, and read on for the contest guidelines!

All our regularly-updated games are participating in the contest. That means your entry has a chance to appear in AQWorlds, AQ3D, AdventureQuest, or DragonFable.

Each of the game teams will choose their own Grand Prize Winners. Those Grand Prize winners will be created and added into the respective games over the next few months.

Prize Details

  1. Grand Prize winner(s) will be chosen by the game teams. GP Winners will get their design in game and 2000 Artix Points!

  2. Winners Circle entries will get 1000 Artix Points!

  3. If you go Above and Beyond, we shall award you accordingly ;)

Contest Timeframe

The contest will range from today, May 4th until 10 AM EST on Friday, May 11th. The winners will be announced the following week on the AE Contests Twitter account.

Contest Rules

The rules and guidelines are pretty radical, but MUST be followed accordingly for your edible entry to be eligible. I repeat, in boldface and in red font, ‘cuz a lot of people miss this: YOU must follow EACH rule if you want your entry to be considered eligible.   

The easiest way to make sure your hard work gets judged: Read all of the rules before submitting your entry! 

  • Your entry must be made by you.
    Do not copy someone else’s hard work. That my friend is called cheating, and you will be disqualified for it.
  • Include your game character name on the piece of artwork itself.
    This way we really know it’s made by you! And NO, photoshopping your name onto your picture DOES NOT COUNT, and you will be disqualified if you do. 
  • If you want your entry to be considered for a specific game, write that game's URL on the image below your game name.
    If you do not include a specific game, your entry will be considered for all games.
  • Your entry MUST be created in some sort of Artix Entertainment theme. 
    Create anything you want from AQW, EpicDuel, BladeHaven, DragonFable, MechQuest, AdventureQuest, and WarpForce!  If we cannot tell what it is from our games, you will not be qualified. 
  • The screenshot of your entry should be of the Highest Quality, and as large as possible. 
    The more clear the picture, the better it will look, upping your chance at the Grand Prize! 
  • Be posted to the AE_Contests Twitter account
    Uploading your photo to your Facebook and sending us a link does not allow us to see the photos. Also, if you upload your photo to your LOCKED image-sharing account, we cannot see it either. So make sure you send the image itself to the Twitter account linked above.
  • One entry per person
    One entry = one surfboard design... so make sure you are happy with your submission!

Design Templates

Follow these links for surfboards template used in AdventureQuest Worlds and AdventureQuest. You do not need to use them, but you may find them helpful.

Using Pre-Made/Existing Game Art

We received a question from fellow AQW Hero, Catpyre. They ask: "would using pre made AQW art count as cheating?"

Answer: Pre-made as in... existing in-game art? No, that would not count as cheating. If you want to pose, say, Gravelyn and Drakath walking along Coral Beach at sunset, and you use their NPC art, that's fine. Or if you have a favorite cutscene moment and want to see that on a surfboard, you can fit that into the template to see if it fits.

It is a design contest, not necessarily an *art* contest.

Good Luck!

On behalf of the entire AE team, we are really looking forward to seeing your creativity!
