Have YOU Chosen Chaos?

Summer of Chaos Event Schedule

Last Friday saw one of the most destiny-shattering secrets in ANY of our games revealed: your TRUE nature and why YOU are the most important Hero on Lore! What we revealed in that cutscene is probably our biggest spoiler EVER, so... if you want to know, you'll need to have chosen your Chaos Lord form AND faced Drakath on top of Mount DoomSkull first!

Then /join Drakathfight and confront the Champion of Chaos once more to hear him reveal why he chose YOU as the 13th Lord of Chaos... and what you can expect to come NEXT! While we prepare the rest of the summer storyline releases, we are releasing the "Drakath's Story" 2-part release combo:

  • LAST WEEK: Drakath's Story, Dreadhaven
  • This Friday: Drakath's Story, Embrace the Chaos
  • August 1: Death's Gauntlet, Gravelyn Goes to War
  • August 8: ShadowFall Rises
  • August 15: The Final Confrontation
  • August 22: Into the Realm of Chaos

As the summer's battles heat up, you'll want to look and stay cool. That's why we're got a shop full of 28 items for our AQWorlds Legends, our Chaos Paragon set for Adventure Coins, and new gear dropping from the Chaos Rep and Rares shops this Friday for everyone! 

FireBlade and BitterHeart Assassin Sets!

This Friday, the BitterHeart and FlameBlade Assassin sets arrive in AQW! Talk to Rangar in Battleon to access all 28 items from both sets in our newest Legend-only shop! Each month, the shop will get a new exclusive set only available to Legends!

We've been doing a lot of upgrade packages, and that means we've got a LOT of Legends running around! The Monthly Member Shop will feature an exclusive set (or two) each month, each as showstopping as these! 

  • If you have an active membership, you'll be able to open the shop and buy the gear right away!
  • The shop will have both rare and permanent Legend-only gear (rare sets will be announced ahead of time)
  • Gear in the shop will be available for various amounts of gold, so if you haven't had a chance to save up, there will still be a lot for you to get!

Chaos Paragon Limited Quantity Set!

We released the Chaos Paragon set during our "Summer of Chaos" limited quantity set event earlier this month... and it's almost time for it to go! The set goes rare PERMANENTLY on August 1st, no matter how many sets are still left!

If you want to conquer the world as a Chaos Paragon:

Hercules! Hercules!

Tonight's Random Midnight Release is LIVE!

Presenting AQW's biggest, buffest, BEST arena warrior EVER! If you've ever wanted to intimidate ALL your opponents, then get ready, because Hercules and Herculisa are here to PUMP. YOU UP!

You'll find the Gladiator Powerhouse armor in your game menu for 500 ACs. It will be available until next Monday night!

Galanoth <3s Gladiators!

Lore's most famous dragonslayer LOVES movies, but not just dragon movies; he loves action movies and over-the-top battle scenes! I knew the Hercules movie was coming out in a couple days, and that Galanoth was going to be pretty excited about it. So I wasn't surprised to find him in the AQW room last Thursday with an AWESOME request:

Galanoth: We need a gladiator armor. WAY bigger than anything we've got now.
Alina: Ok, so we're talking "hoist a two-handed sword with one hand" type?
Galanoth: Bigger!
Alina: ... "Able to lift several dwarven wrestlers" big?
Galanoth: BIGGER!!!!
Alina: "Crushing cars with their han-"
Galanoth: BIGGERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
Alina: I think we can make this happen for you. 
Galanoth: "DragonSlayer battle cry"*
*Dage cues training montage soundtrack*

So Memet got to work on Friday and finished up Hercules and Herculisa (she's Herc's baby sister. It's a family name.) And tonight, Galanoth's dream of wearing AQW gear muscle-y enough to benchpress dragons is a reality!

* We have life-size versions of the DragonBlade AND Galanoth's helmet at the secret underground lab. The above conversation is pretty typical.

In-game Mod Hunt Update

STATUS: Not ACCEPTING NEW APPLICATIONS 

Our in-game moderators are amazing... and more, they're volunteers! They do not get paid for the many hours they spend each week helping keep the game safe and fun for everyone. Because they're volunteers, real-life has to come first; that means that occasionally, we lose some team members to outside responsibilities.

When that happens, we start hunting for new mods. Earlier today, we shifted Veronica Dare, one of the game testers, onto the Mod team, as well. (Thanks, Veronica!) More current team members may be making that transistion over the next week or two. 

NEXT WEEK: Reens is going back to the thousands of applications from the last moderator hunt to pull more potential mods to interview. 

More Testers Needed!

Our in-game and website QA testers* are ALSO volunteers, and that means the same rules apply - every now and then, we lose some to more important real-life responsibilities.  We'll be hunting for more testers for both the game and web QA positions starting next week, as well.

Moderators vs Testers

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

Want to know more about the different AQW Team roles? Read THIS!

* QA stands for "quality assurance"

Drakath's Story, Pt 1

Relive the Champion of Chaos' Origin Story!

For years, you've battled Drakath, the Champion of Chaos. But how well do you know his story - what turned him from a young Prince into an all-powerful mage bent on achieving a single, world-shattering goal? 

The family that slays together, stays together.

This weekend, battle through Dreadhaven as Alden, aka a young King Alteon before he ascends to the throne. Then battle through Oaklore Forest as a young Princes Victoria, reliving Drakath's early years to experience the start of his journey towards Chaos! WARNING: this is only the FIRST part of Drakath's story... you'll need to return NEXT Friday to see how it ends!

You'll need your friends to take down THIS boss!

* Ultradread battle drops the Legend-only version of the set, which gives more XP and does more damage against Chaos! The normal Dreadhaven General battle drops a version of the gear for ALL players!

Summer Token Shop

That's right, it's SUMMERTIME in the city (Of Battleon) and that means... a NEW seasonal token shop! This Friday, talk to Twilly in Battleon to get your Summer 2014 Token! That lets you open the Summer 2014 Token shop, where you'll find:

Drakath's Story: Dreadhaven

Relive the Champion of Chaos' Origin Story!

For years, you've battled Drakath, the Champion of Chaos. But how well do you know his story - what turned him from a young Prince into an all-powerful mage bent on achieving a single, world-shattering goal? This Friday, play as Alden, a young warrior destined to be the King of Swordhaven, and a young Princes Victoria as you quest to uncover the secrets of Drakath's past!

The family that slays together, stays together.

Updated 2014 Summer Release Schedule

It's NEVER easy to predict just where Chaos will strike... or how it will wreak havoc on schedules! The release calendar has been updated to reflect the rest of the summer:

  • July 18: Drakath’s Story: Dreadhaven
  • July 25: Drakath’s Story: Champion of Chaos
  • August 1: Death’s Judgement, Gravelyn’s Choice
  • August 8: Shadowfall Rises
  • August 15: The Final Confrontation
  • August 22: Into Chaos: Chaos Lord Gauntlet

Free Wheel of Doom Tickets Arrive Tonight

If you spun the Wheel of Doom or Destiny between July 1st and 5 PM server time today, later tonight you'll receive 5 FREE Fortune Tickets to spin the Wheels of Doom or Destiny. If you're a Legend, you'll receive 25 free Fortune Tickets!

The first batch of rare Wheel gear will also return, and with a higher drop rate! (As promised when we cycled them out a few months back.) We're getting a lot of questions about what gear will go rare from the Wheel. Keep an eye out for Design Notes later this week with more answers!

Attack on Battleon: PvE Battles This Week

Earlier today, Yorumi released a patch to PvP that should help the team balance in the Battleon war, but it hasn't done enough from what you guys say. With that in mind, he'll continue looking at the issue (which involves Flash ignoring basic code structure), but in the mean-time we are going to release a PvE version of the war.

That way, if you are having difficulty joining the PvP rooms or just prefer fighting monsters instead, you'll be able to contribute to the war effort!

Prismatic Dragon Morph is color customizable!

If you haven't spun the Wheel yet this month, make sure you /join doom and spin this weekend. Every player who spins the Wheel before Monday will receive 5 free Spin Tickets. Every Legend will receive 25 free Spin Tickets! 

New Gear Showcase

Now available as drops from the Wheels of Doom and Destiny and their merge shops: 6 new armors, 8 new helms, 5 new capes, and 3 new weapons!

  • Prismatic Dragon Morph set
  • Shadow Dragon Morph set
  • Mountain Breaker set
  • Chaotic Mountain Breaker set
  • Obsidian Assassin armor and helm
  • Legion Obsidian Assassin armor and helm
  • Cagnazzo Plush mace
  • Wings of Ciriatto cape

The Wheels of Doom and Destiny

Not sure what the Carnival of Fortune is? Here's an info breakdown.

  • /Join Doom to go to the Wheel of Doom
  • Spin the Wheel for a chance to get some cool new gear
  • Every time you spin, you get 10000 gold, a Fortune Potion, an XP Boost and a chance for a bonus item

Want to know more? Here's a FAQ with more details:

Returning Items Arrive Monday

Back in April, we cycled out the 1% drop items to make room for new ones. When we did that, we said the gear leaving would return at some point in the future. With the Wheels and much of their gear going rare*, we need to do that before August 23rd. Those items will return Monday, and all the 1% items will receive a slightly increased drop rate.

* It is possible some of the gear made for and only available from the Wheels will be redistributed to other shops or functionality. The 1% drops will not be included in that list. 

Battleon PVP Release Update

Yorumi is back to work on the "Room Full" issue from last night's release that is still affecting some of you. We will get that taken care of as soon as possible! Coming this week, we will add PVP Combat Trophy drops to /battleonpvp, as well.

Attack on Battleon

13th Lord of Chaos Attacks Battleon!

After last week's encounter in the Lair, the forces of the Alliance and Chaos are even hungrier for blood than ever... and the 13th Lord of Chaos LOVES the havoc being wreaked! This Friday, the forces of Chaos are attacking Battleon, and ALL heroes are summoned to the fight!

Will you defend or attack Battleon!

To begin fighting in the Attack on Battleon, /join battleonwar and talk to Twilly. Choose a side, then click the "Join War" button and you'll be placed in an instance of the /battleonpvp map.*

Every opponent you defeat will raise your war meter by one point! But hurry, because both Empress Gravelyn and the forces of Chaos are rallying more help... Battleon is the one town Chaos does not want to lose, and the one place the Alliance will not see defeated!

* Yorumi is working to even out the balance on each side. He hopes to have that out this weekend.

Battles Outside PVP

If PVP isn't your thing, then never fear! Chaos monsters are appearing in maps throughout Lore, in places they've never seen before! 

Defenders of Battleon in the merge shop

Go on the hunt in places like the Maul, the Manor, the Clubhouse, Sandcastle, and more for the Chaos War medals they drop to show you will keep fighting... no matter what! Then use the medals to create new gear. 

50% Rewards Shops

Once your side raises its meter to 50%, you'll unlock the Annihilator of Order or Defender of Order sets! Free-player and Legend versions, with the Legend version giving you a small boost to XP!

War challenge!

Current Events in AQWorlds

More Inventory Spaces

45 MORE Inventory Spaces: Cap is now 200!

Feel like your backpack is a little cramped? Is your bank full to overflowing? We have heard your cries of pain in the game, on Twitter and Facebook, and on the forums! Well, get ready for GREAT news, because we JUST added 45 MORE buyable inventory slots for 200 ACs each to AQWorlds!

AQW Inventory: now with more room!

You can click on the "Add Space" button in your inventory window (like in the picture above). OR you can head North from Battleon up to the Bank (next to the Guardian Tower). Talk to Augold the Banker to buy more slots!

Augold: Banker and Hammerspace Maker!

You Said You Couldn't Add New Spaces!!!

You are correct, disembodied collective player-voice! We said back when we didn't think we COULD add more space. We didn't want to risk increasing lag, but with the numerous improvements over the last year by Yorumi, Zhoom, and Captain Rhubarb, we can add another round!

When we find out something you guys want isn't able to happen, we let you know that (as much and as often as is reasonable and possible). But sometimes... sometimes what is the truth of a situation one year changes the next year, or two years after that.

When that happens, things we didn't think were possible suddenly BECOME POSSIBLE! That is the BEST way we can be wrong, because it means we're able to do something for you guys we didn't think we could.

Thank You For Supporting AQWorlds!

The entire AQWorlds team works hard to create releases because you love AQWorlds, and we love that so many of you support the game you love. Thank you for letting us know how you feel about the game, and what you want to see in it. Remember, AQW is YOUR game and you shape it through your suggestions and ideas!

Carnival of Fortune Leaving

Wheels of Doom and Destiny Leave August 23rd!

After a year of taking chances, daring fate, and risking DOOM... the Carnival of Fortune is closing its gates on August 23rd! This is your last chance to use your Fortune Tickets to get drops from the Wheels of Doom and Destiny. The Doom and Destiny merge shops will remain in-game and available for those who still have Fortune Potions to spend in them. New gear will be available from the Wheels and merge shops starting this Friday.

Some of Friday's new gear!

Why are we closing them now, you ask? Good question. The Wheels were always controversial, but many of you guys enjoyed taking a chance to get exclusive items, and hunting for that elusive Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness. We thought that was a pretty cool idea, too!

More new wheel gear arriving Friday!

But due to a number of issues, including exploit abuse and some core communcation issues between Flash and the web browser, we want to shift our focus away from the Wheels to a better system. One that will still give extra bonuses to Legends, but will also give free players a more reliable means of getting in-game rewards...

New Daily Login System

One of the nicest Legend Perks in the Wheels of Doom and Destiny are the free Daily Wheel spins. We want to keep giving our upgraded players an advantage in getting the newest, coolest gear... so we are transferring the "Legend bonus" to our plans for the new Daily Login System. 

If you saw our test of that a few months back, you'll know that all you need to do is log in each day to get more and bigger prizes! When we bring back the system, it will have some changes, including a combination of the Wheel and Treasure Chest system (according to the current plan).

  • Every 7 days everyone will get a free Treasure Chest Key to get free swag 
  • Legends will get more than one key 
  • Legends will also have a chance to win more free ACs every week (with the amount increasing each consecutive week you log in without missing a day) 

We are still plotting out the changes and additions we want to make to the daily login system, but we will make sure it's a step up for Legends, while still making sure all our other players get daily rewards, too!

Free Spin Tickets Coming Monday!

This Monda, if you have spun the Wheel of Doom or Destiny this month, you'll receive 5 free spins. If you are a Legend you'll received 25 spins! (The free daily and monthly spins count for this.)

The fate of Lore’s most famous town is up to you and your fellow heroes... will you fight to save Battleon, or help destroy it?

Dragon's Lair War Review

Final Outcome: REMATCH

After reviewing the war meters in the Dragon's Lair, we saw a large amount of cheating which led to the 100% / 99% totals by war's end. With that in mind, we are not declaring any one side the winner in this war. 

The story will go forward with the Alliance having saved the Lair, but with the forces of Chaos having reached the heart of the mountain.

Many of you are asking for a rematch... so next week, we are giving you just that - with Battleon as your battleground!

Alliance vs Chaos: Battleon PVP Match

Log in next Friday, July 11th,  and choose a side - Alliance or Chaos - in a team PVP match for the fate of Battleon! Teams are 8 to a side and will be fighting through the streets of Battleontown. Once enough combatants are on each team, the battle will begin! As members of your team fall, the victory count will rise!

Alliance: Protect the town of Battleon from the forces of Chaos!

Alliance Rallies in Lair

Chaos Pushes to the Heart of the Dragon's Lair

As of this morning, the Lair War Meters sit at 98% and 85%, in favor of the Alliance. The forces of Chaos have advanced far enough into the Lair to make reaching the Chaos Beast a certainty, as the 13th Lord of Chaos was sure would happen.

HOWEVER, Empress Gravelyn's goal - to delay the advances of Chaos long enough to rally forces and buy her time to raise Shadowfall have also paid off - she has taken some of those new forces and sent them into the Dragon's Lair. The Lair WILL NOT FALL to Chaos!

This morning, Alliance Soldiers appeared in the Lairattack map, while behind the scenes, the AQW team is preparing to launch the next story cutscene: the rise of the 13th Chaos Beast!

Out-of-character: When I woke up this morning and saw the war meters, I almost dropped my coffee! We did not expect to see THAT, but we changed the map this morning to illustrate it.

Some players are concerned about unfair advantages; there are several reasons the war meter may have gone up so fast (either cheating, an error on our part, or something else.) We are looking at that now, but will go forward as planned.

Fixed Plot Points vs Dynamic Outcomes

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.

Finale arc illustrations

The 13th Lord of Chaos raising their Chaos Beast is one of those, as is a final confrontation with Drakath. Though we are leaving certain things in the storyline up to you, we do have a story to tell... one that has been in planning for the last six years!  

Update: Chaos Beast Gauntlet Arrives Later Tonight

The 100% cutscene will play as soon as one of the war meters hits 100%. The Chaos Beast Gauntlet map AND the 13th Chaos Beast shop will release later tonight.

How Do Limited Quantity Sets Work?

  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!

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!
