Some shops leave and some shops stay!
You'll notice the Spring Limited Time Shop and the Australia Day shop have both left Battleon. But the Dage Deathday shop is still there, so never fear, Legion fans! If you haven't had a chance to earn the requirements for your favorite rare Legion item, you'll have ONE MORE WEEK in which to get them!
(Due to so many people asking nicely for the shop to stay, and because we had an issue with one of our payment sites, we wanted to make sure everyone who wanted to got the chance to get these epic items.)
J6 in SPAAAAAACE!
J6, AQW's Lead Artist, has a chance to win a contest go into outerspace. For real, in real life. No joke. And YOU can help send him up there, where he belongs! All you have to do is head to this site and click the button. You can vote once per day, EVERY day until the contest ends. So if you haven't voted yet, get your rocketboosters in gear and go go go!
Space. J6 belongs among the stars.
Help us send him there!
As of this writing, J6 has 14,939 votes, and 99% of that is YOU guys helping to send him there. It's amazing what the power of a community of individuals can do when they band together. Nothing is out of reach, not even the moon!
So whether or not J6 wins the contest, gets shot into space, and draws the first extra-orbital AQWorlds item, you guys made a difference in helping one artist realize a life-long dream. For that, thank you. :)
Magic Thief Guest Author Event!
Join us for a fantastical AQWorlds in-game special event with magical literary guest-star, Sarah Prineas. Meet magicians, thieves, nobility, and misery-monsters as her characters cause Chaos! She's graciously allowed us to write her characters into an all-new story that takes place on Lore.
Meet Pettivox, Bennett, Conn, Rowan, and the Duchess!
What will happen when they arrive, you ask? Warlic, Cysero, Conn – a pickpocket turned wizard – and your Hero will discover that the ley lines which contain Lore’s magic are vulnerable to infection by Chaos. When Drakath uses the nefarious wizard, Pettivox, to infect them, it will be up to you and Conn to save all of the magic (and mages) on Lore!
These are misery eels. They feed on your sadness.
Join us NEXT WEEK for the most magically - and massively - manipulative event yet!
