Cryomancer Class Preview

Legends: give us your feedback on the skill lineup!

Hey, Legends! Want to help us create the new Cryomancer Class? Now's your chance! Talk to Ragnar in Battleon and grab the CryoMancer Temp Class, then run around and battle your opponents brains out to see if you like the skills we've got on it!

If you do, fantastic! If you don't, let us know why, and what you'd like to see changed. Not balanced? Suggest buffs or nerfs! This is your chance to have a permanent impact on one of our classes in development.

You can grab the temp version of the class for 0 gold now*, or get your gloves on a permanent version for 2000 ACs. The Dark version of the Cryomancer gear is a Legend-only exclusive, too!

Cryomancer holiday class test in a free fantasy mmoAQWorlds hero Holiday and crew take Cryomancer Class for a test-battle

Notes:

  • Wizard and warrior enhancements appear to be particularly useful.
  • Using the class properly, you're able to survive almost forever. The mana costs are high to compensate. It is incredibly survivable. If you alternate between the heal and haste debuff, you can last for a long, LONG time.
  • This class definitely requires strategic management of your mana, but you should be able to take out lower-end mobs pretty well.
  • We may be lowering the mana cost on shatter and flashfreeze or buffing damage.
  • Freeze and Frozen Tears will not be buffed. May need to be nerfed depending on feedback.
  • Update: we just buffed the damage of FrostFreeze when you use the special effect and reduced mana cost by 5.

*The temp class will turn into an exclusive Mini-Cryomancer pet once testing is over as our way of saying "thanks" for testing!

Break Bones, Get Presents

Destroy the Frostval Fiend to Unlock Treasure

From Travelers leaving the Frozen Wastes come rumors of a vast treasure, waiting for those strong enough to take it. But, say the travelers, no one who has set out to claim it has ever returned… and no sign of them has been found. Is the treasure so grand, the luxury so rich, that they never wish to leave? Or is something darker, deadlier, lying in wait at the heart of the hoard?

Will YOU survive the hunt?

Flame Dragon Warrior Class

FLAME DRAGON WARRIOR SKILLS BREAKDOWN

Hi all! Asuka here (Usually you're reading posts from me, TODAY IT'S WRITING ONE) and today we'll be learning the brand new class for AQ:Dragon Founders, the Flame Dragon Warrior, the Class you can unlock when you become a Founder in our newest mobile game, AdventureQuest: Dragons! .

Founder comes with 200 Dragon Keys which you can use to unlock new dragon eggs to hatch and buy some upper tier powers, or even buy gems for your dragon to buy more upgrades and increase its power! (You can also earn keys by completing dragons and watching daily sponsored videos but that's much slower). 

BONUS: We are already planning an expansion to the game which will include leaderboards and a new dragon! 

What is the Flame Dragon Warrior Class?

The Flame Dragon Warrior is a VERY powerful class designed for people who become a founder at AE's new game, AQ:Dragons. The skillset is extremely useful for either boss fights (like taking down dragons), pvp (slaying DragonSlayers) or just everyday use farming (in the Dragon's Lair) .

DRAGONS DRAGONS DRAGONS

You can unlock the Class when you get the founder package in AQ:Dragons. The Class comes with an armor, sword, spear, dragon help, epic cape, wings and a special character page badge.

Sit back, relax and lets have a good read.

Flame Dragon Warrior Class Skills

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

Fire Dragon's Roar: 10 Mana, 4 second cooldown
Blast 3 targets with flame to deal fire damage.
Builds stacks of Dragon's Roar which affects other abilities.

This is the ability you want to keep stacked. Stacking this ability will allow you other skills (Which we will go over) an extra kick to them

Burn Of Akriloth: 25 Mana, 15 second cooldown
Akriloth grants you the power to do a 400% DoT for 10 seconds, with a 25% chance to stun your opponents for 6 seconds with Smothering Smoke, Stacks of Dragon's Roar increase damage.

Yes, all those words and numbers are correct. You can get an extremely high DoT AND do a pretty nifty amount of damage too and even a good chance for stuns. This skill is really good for beating down something (or someone) really quick without hassle. 
Note: The DoT CAN be applied even without stacks of Dragon's Roar, BUT YOU WILL NEED THE STACKS if you wish to do damage as well.

Dragon Strength: 20 Mana, 12 second cooldown
A Moderate Damage Skill.  Applies Ablaze which increases Strength by 25% for 8 seconds. If stacks of Dragon's Roar are present, removes all stacks of Dragon's Roar and applies Extra Defense which reduces all damage taken by 40% for 15 seconds.

Feeling a tad too squishy? Want to buff yourself up like a (small) tank? With stacks of Dragon's Roar, your defense power grows AS WELL as your strength! It's a GREAT thing if you want to survive a few more hits and make sure you can take your opponant down. Goes great with a healer.

Fire Dragon's Scales & Dragon's BloodRank 4 Passives

The magic of dragon scales gives you 30% spell resistance.
The power of dragons blood gives you 30% endurance increase

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

Burning Rage: 30 Mana, 15 second cooldown

DESTROY with the power of your rage and damage! Also applies a 350% DoT over 8 seconds.
Double the DoTs, double the fun! The fun WILL be doubled with this skill! This is your boomshot, the skill you *wisely* use as you don't wanna waste your mana compltely (I'm bad with mana at times...) Anyways, as well as getting a decent strike off, you also get another DoT just to be more of a bother. Works quite nicely with Dragon's Strength. 

Rank 10 Passive: Dragon's Burn
Increases your DoTs by 30%

Do you like your DoTs? Of course you do. Do you want to make them even better? OF COURSE YOU DO! Similar to Dragon Shinobi's Rank 10 passive, Dragon's Burn will give your DoTs even BIGGER damage ranges! it's a PERMANENT increase!

Overall, you can survive pretty well with the class. Your power can be used for high damage and DoT or tank it out, taking hits from everything that decides to come your way. Do let us know what you think too! Anywho, Asuka out!

BoneBreaker Breaks AQW's Animator

You KNOW you're up against a bad villain when he can shatter the fourth wall AND blast through the internet to break the computer he is being built on... at least, that's the story Ghost is sticking to! We wanted to get this release out to everyone on Tuesday, but our lead animator, Ghost, has been battling one thing after another with his computer this week. (Looks like I know what HE needs for Frostval!)

He's just let me know it's about an inch away from being done; to give our testers time to run-through and catch any bugs, we'll release that tomorrow along with our Winter's Heart dungeon crawl and Tundra Hunter Limited Time Shop!

Building up to a Bright Frostval

Get a Sneak Peek at what's coming next week!

The Design Notes have been quieter than usual this week, because the entire team has been hard at work building the bones of the Frostval release designed to introduce us all to the new main storyline!

We've stolen Thyton to partner with Dage to build the Frostval monsters, and we've loaded up J6, Memet, Laken, Blade, Ghost, and Arklen with art and animation lists that will let you wreck the halls as you deck your opponents!

Read on to see concept art, in progress, and finished art for the coming weeks' releases:


Karok the Fallen concept

Several millennia ago Karok, the Hero of the Battle of IceSpire Peak, was broken after a bitter betrayal forced him to choose between death and dishonor. His spirit was so shattered that rumors say no shred of humanity remains in him. Looking at his FrostSpawn minions... this may well be true. 

Frostspawn Horde Warrior concept

Once a regular human warrior, members of the Frostspawn horde have been twisted into unrecognizably monstrous creatures by the magic of their planet due to the foul nature of their deeds.


Karok the Fallen, mage form, final art

Fueled by a need for vengeance, conquest, and rage, Karok has destroyed his world, and seeks a new world to pillage and plunder. The last whispers of the last seer to walk the ice floes of his homeland uttered a single word, though many have no idea what it could mean: "Kezeroth..."

The Horologium Gate after completion

Every 5,000 years, a planetary alignment is possible and, if the gate is properly constructed, a bridge may be formed which can bring us the aid we need to battle the WorldBreaker... but first the Horologium Gate must be built and the Elemental Runestones gathered!

Cryomancer Class concept art

The CryoMancer Class will be available in two weeks, and can be purchased for 2000 Adventure Coins or through farming for tokens from a Daily Quest. (Members will be able to earn tokens twice as fast!)

  • Cryomancer Class (Earned version, 84 Glacera Tokens)
  • Cryomancer Class (AC version, 2000 ACs)

Once the CryoMancer Class releases, speak to Syrrus Terminer in the Tower of Winds. He will have daily quests that will reward you with Glacera Tokens when you complete them. Non-members can earn up to 14 a week but there is a special Member version of the quest that will reward Members with up to 21 Tokens per week.

MEMBERS: You will only be able to do ONE of the quests per day. MAKE SURE YOU DO THE MEMBER VERSION!

As always there will be an AC version of the class in Syrrus and Quibble's Frostval shops for those who don't have the time to invest in earning the class for free.

The LoreMasters Warn...

Heroes of Lore, Prepare! The Horde is Coming

Our wisest Loremasters have intercepted a message from beyond, and what they have learned will chill your bones and freeze your blood...

Far off, in the deepest reaches of space lies a dead planet, frozen beyond all recognition from the rich world it once was. And the creature (you might have called him a man, once) who rules there is a heartless, ruthless being. So vastly different from what he once was.

Karok the Fallen concept art

He wields a magic we have seen on this world only a few times, and rules with an iron fist and a blade forged from the weeping wounds of his enemies. He is Karok the Fallen, and his gaze has turned to our world.

We must learn more about who he is, what he wants, and what his plans are as soon as possible! If we do not prepare, we cannot combat the destruction he will bring! This Frostval...

The Horde. Is. Coming.

BoneBreaker Adventure Pack

Unlocks the Zone, Gear, Membership, and ACs!

We're excited to introduce the BoneBreaker adventure package upgrade starting tomorrow, December 5th, at 3 PM EST! Immediately unlock the BoneBreaker Outcast armor in your Book of Lore, then next week, you'll begin the adventure to take down Braddok BoneBreaker deep in the heart of the DeadMaw Woods! 

Unlock the adventure and reap the rewards!

This is a new type of upgrade package available on our website, portal site, and in-game, and we are REALLY excited about it! When you get the BoneBreaker package for $34.95 USD, you'll immediately unlock:

  • The Bonebreaker Outcast armor 
  • The BoneBreaker Fortress map

  • 3 months of membership*
  • And 2000 AdventureCoins!

*Plus all the usual member perks

Frequently Asked Questions

Why an expansion package instead of a normal upgrade set?

We had a ton of players excited for Dage's new Bonebreaker Berserker set, and so were we! But rather than just attach the armor set to a 3 month membership package, we wanted to do more with the character and give you more value for the money you'd be spending.

Can I access this if I have an active membership but don't buy the package?

YES! To access the /bonebreak map, you'll need to buy the package OR have an active membership. The achievement badge is exclusive to those who buy the package. (If you buy the package, you can access the map at any time, even if you do not have an active membership.)

Will this be part of the main story?

The quest chain and boss battles are all optional side content and will not feature in the main story, but you'll get to battle a massive boss (seriously, this guy's beefy!) and reap the rewards of your victory! If you defeat him, you'll unlock a quest to plunder his hoard to unlock additional prizes!

How long will the package be available?

The Bonebreaker expansion package, unlike our other upgrade sets, is not planned as a limited time offer.  

How to Unlock the BoneBreaker Package?

  1. Buy the BoneBreaker package in-game, on our website, or through the Portal site
  2. Get the “Bonebreaker Fortress Map” item in BoL Badge Shop
  3. /join Bonebreak (if you do not have the item in your inventory, you cannot join map)
  4. Talk to Shara Kinrunner in /bonebreak to begin the adventure!

Frostval is BACK for 2014

Wreck the Halls and Ring the SLAY Bells!

Get ready for the return of AQW's coolest gear (literally!) this Friday as we bring back all of our previous years' Frostval events! Save Frostvale, stop the Ice Symbiote infection, watch a young Empress Gravelyn experience her first Frostval, and get SO MANY presents! 

Last year, one of our Twitter followers, VendettaSoul, sent us this very well-worded (and ominous!) message, and it still applies for this week:

Christmas time is here... Queztal makes you run in fear. Kezeroth, World chaorrupts, my favorite time of year. Lol  

This Friday, battle through all our existing Frostval zones:

  • Alpine Factory
  • Ice Cave
  • Snow Globe
  • Snow Path
  • Factory
  • Battlefield
  • Ice Cave
  • Ice Rise Keep
  • Ice Volcano
  • Snowy Vale

Legends can access the "Fall of IceRise Keep" storyline by talking to Moraine in /icerisepast to see the effects of Kezeroth's rise shortly before he woke from his ancient slumber!

So cold even the Ice Wolves fled!

New Frostval Event Begins in TWO WEEKS!

Normally, we have a Frostval event which ends in warmth, happiness, and fuzzy hugs. But NOT THIS YEAR! We've gotten a lot of questions about when the new story will begin, what the Last Stone of Battleon will do, etc. Well this month, we've got answers!

The Scythe of Dreams awaits.

We're using the time normally reserved for Frostval to set the stage for 2015 by introducing one of the next main villains. And to face him, you're going to need to travel to the NEW continent! Friday, December 19th, prepare yourself for:

Frostfall Invasion: Rise of the WorldBreaker!

Also coming this week

  • The Frostval Giftboxes arrive next Wednesday!
  • The BoneBreaker expansion package goes on sale Friday! 
  • The alternate Legion Vampire armor set arrives Friday!

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.

    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)
