Lycan Class Skills Breakdown

Get Ready to Start Lycan Our Next Class!

Lycans. Interesting folk. Rather than living aristocratically the way Vampires often do, Lycans live off in caves and hovels. Lycans need no luxury. They hunt, they fight, they survive. They earn their respect. Not through bloodlines or wisdom and experience or even pitting their clans against one another.

Their leaders are decided through single combat. Those brave enough to challenge authority and strong enough to wrest power from their leaders are the most deserving. This isn’t always favorable. You never know when some lunatic is going to take charge. If your philosophy is similar, or if you just think becoming a fearsome hunter of the night is really really cool, you, too, may become a Lycan.

How to unlock Lycan Class:

  • Talk to Queen Solani in /mogloween OR Voltaire in /Poehub
  • If you have Rank 10 Lycan Rep, you can buy the class for 50,000 gold
  • OR you can pick it up for 2,000 AdventureCoins

Why Choose Lycan Class?

This furry powerhouse has STAYING power, and for those of you who like the challenge of taking down our toughest bosses, you know that a good heal-over-time can come in handy when you're just about to take a claw to the spine. Its unavoidable attacks make it survivable in the toughest arena, too.

For those of you who like farming, we've got you covered (in color-custom fur, no less)! Thrill of Battle and Savagery are multiple target, which means more slaughter, which means MORE REWARDS! When you spam them to grow your HoT and get your avoidabl 10% damage, pretty much all the beasts you face will FALL before your lycan might!

This isn't a support class, but that's because Lycans are formidable on their own, especially with its multi-target skills and healing. That heal will take a bit longer to build up when you are fighting solo, but it's definitely reliable in battle and will get the job done RIGHT when you're at full power. 

The class also cuts critical hit chance; critical hits are a serious threat to your health and preventing your opponent from landing one means theres less of a chance they'll hurt you faster than you heal. That is a GOOD thing for any hero, at any time.

Auto Attack

Rank Needed: 0
Mana Cost: 0
Mana Cooldown: 2.0 Seconds
Type: Physical
Description: A basic attack, taught to all adventurers

Some people with Lycanthropy contracted the disease by being bitten by a Lycan and surviving. There are other methods of becoming a Lycan, but in all cases this results in a powerful transformation. This is the standard Auto Attack, but it’s a little beefier because Lycan shares the same base stat spread as Berserker.

Pouncing Strike

Rank Needed: 1
Mana Cost: 30
Mana Cooldown: 20 Seconds
Type: Physical
Description: With your new legs you send a mighty leaping kick to the head of your enemy, causing them, at the very least, to become really dizzy.

When this attack lands, your opponent becomes Disoriented for 12 seconds. This cuts their Critical Strike chance by 25% for that time. Otherwise, this does 200% the damage your AA does.

Thrill of Battle

Rank Needed: 2
Mana Cost: 20
Mana Cooldown: 6 Seconds
Type: Physical
Description: Diving into the fray suits you, and it gets your Lycanthropic blood pumping, kicking your regenerative abilities into action.

One incredible power that Lycans have is how they regenerate, and you will certainly be no exception. This attack can hit up to two targets at considerable range. For every successful hit, you gain a stack of Predation. Predation is a Heal-over-time that can have 6 stacks maximum and lasts 8 seconds if not refreshed.. It’s based on your Attack Power, and is not affected by the damage range of your weapon.

Savagery

Rank Needed: 3
Mana Cost: 15
Mana Cooldown: 4 Seconds
Type: Physical
Description: With the strength and agility of a Lycan, a clumsy flail in an attempt to hit something becomes a nearly inescapable barrage.

This skill also hits up to two targets. What’s special here is that your flurry of blows is so rampant and random. You cannot land any crits with this, but it’s a cheap skill that strikes two targets at range and never misses!

Howl of Terror

Rank Needed: 5
Mana Cost: 10
Mana Cooldown: 10 Seconds
Type: Physical
Description: You let loose a blood-curdling call to the sky and your opponent, shaking them to their core. Hopefully.

The howl of a Lycan strikes fear into the heart of it’s prey.. Most of the time.. You can finally be the one to wield that fear. I mean, unless you aren’t scary. This skill does not deal damage but it also cannot miss and has quite the range. It has a random chance for one of four different lengths of stuns! You.. May also not stun your enemy at all. Can you imagine your voice cracking when you’re trying to be intimidating? Jump-scares don’t work every time.

Passives

Scent Tracking & Thick Fur: Hit chance increased by 10%, Damage taken reduced by 10%

Dogs have noses. Wolves have noses. You have a nose and it’s kind of good at what a nose does. You know how to make it better? Become a Lycan. These passives assist your mana regeneration. You regain mana the way a Warrior does: by landing hits and being hit. You want to strike, and when you are struck, you want to make sure it doesn’t outspeed your healing.

Note: The class is still being balanced. Mana Costs, Cooldowns, Skill Descriptions and even the effects of some skills could change before release. Keep an eye on Blade's Twitter for pictures of the coming Class art!

Voltaire's Mogloween

Voltaire takes over Mogloween for Friday the 31st

Voltaire titillates and terrifies with stories from the late, great Edgar Allan Poe, but you’ve got to find the tales before he can read them! Battle to GET the texts… then battle THROUGH these stories of treachery and supernatural dread! 

Join Voltaire on a journey through a Poe-m of Terror!

Battle your way through the House of Crusher and the Cask of Amoglinado, then discover what The Wyvern is warning you about once you step into a Gothic Mansion so dark and deadly the dragons fear to pass over its gates!   

Gazing deep into that darkened clearing, 
Long I stood there shaking, fearing, 
Unblinking, thinking thoughts no Hero dared to think before.
But the stillness was unbroken, and in silence, naught was spoken, 
And the only word outspoken was the whispered word... 
(spoilers removed)

Vampire Clan Lore

Learn more about the Vampire Factions

The scrolls of the Vampire Elders seeking to claim the Vampire Throne have been revealed! Learn of each factions' philosophy, what drives its leader, and what each seeks in new recruits. Tomorrow, you will find them in the /eternalnight map. But tonight, you can read them below:

The Umbral Legion

Led by Rapaxi, Elder

Out of the shadows we came, and to the shadows we return. It is there that the Umbral Legion draws its strength. There our power is shaped and grows. We ARE the Children of the Shadows. Warriors of the Shade. From the earliest times, the other Vampires have sought to match our skill as warriors… and failed.

The legends of my people? PAH. That is the way of weakness. Softness. We do not place much store on stories and legends; through embracing silence, one cannot betray their Clan's strategy. That is the way of OUR dark path: in the heat of the battle, we forge the blades of a new Vampire Nation.

The Abyssal Horde

Led by Kurok Gravefang, Leader

*GRRRROWL* You wish to know where the Abyssal Horde comes from? ME! They are mine. Bone, body, and blood. They see my strength, hear my plans, and smell victory. I do not HAVE a history… I will MAKE a history.

No one sees the power that dwells inside the outcasts, the lost, the hated. THEY are the Abyssal Horde. They know that beauty can hide a dark heart, and that claims of skill can be false promises. I make no claims to a pure bloodline or power over mortals or skill in battle. I SHOW my bloodline and my power and my skill… and so does my Horde.

YOU do not join US. WE come to YOU.

The Cor Mortis

Led by Lady Solani, the First Fang

When the Ancient Gods still walked Lore, the legends say, war raged even fiercer than it does now. The very elements struggled for control. And in that chaos, one a new race rose. Vampires. Over the millennia, we grew stronger, and our scattered peoples formed families, and clans.

The Cor Mortis is one such, an ancient Clan, formed from the shadows cast by our earliest ancestors. We are the rulers, the shapers of tradition and definers of history. Those who battle alongside us, rise. Those who oppose us, learn to serve. And someday, should their strength and courage prove them worthy, they join… US.

From my earliest memories, once I was reborn, I learned the ways of my Clan: How to recognize power. How to rule. When to choose mercy, and when to demand obedience. How to let our people choose for themselves while still remaining ONE people following the TRUE path.

The Nyx Aeterna

Led by Baron Luca, Clan Head

The Nyx Aeterna were ancient when the first cities rose up. We watched as the mortals we stalked learned how to harness their own strength and intellect to make their world a better place. We watched, and we poached. We are the hunters, the predators, the monsters your mother used to frighten you as a babe.

Those fierce enough, brave enough, to unleash the Beast within themselves master fear... and hone its edge into a weapon. It is not enough to be STRONG. It is not enough to be SKILLED. It is not enough to be FEARED. The Nyx Aeterna seek those who will LAST. Who will STAY. We are as old as the night. As deep and dark as the shadows that shroud its heart. Those who cannot join us, heart and body and soul... will never truly belong.

Battle for the Vampire Throne

Battle for the Darkovian Vampire Throne

The time has come to choose a successor for Queen Safiria, ruler of Darkovia's vampires.* After this summer's war, a different type of chaos reigns among the vampires of Lore, and the lycans of Darkovia are starting to probe for weaknesses.


Of the surviving Vampire Elders, several have come forth to claim the throne… as well as a half-breed new-comer who has no right, but strength, speed, skill, and POWER! This Friday, fight for the Vampire YOU want to take the Vampire Throne; your support will make the difference between ruling… and being banished back to the shadows of obscurity.

* It is best when rulers can choose a successor before they must leave the throne. For those of you who have not finished the Chaos Saga finale, spoilers will be kept to a minimum.

Vote with your blades

You have 4 contenders to choose from:

  • Baron Luca, Head of the Nyx Aeterna Clan
  • Rapaxi, Elder of the Umbral Legion 
  • Kurok Gravefang, Leader of the Abyssal Horde
  • Lady Solani, First Fang of the Cor Mortis** and her General, Ensis

One of these four has... plans... for Edvard and Esmee. Regrettably, I am not sure they'll last out the week in Darkovia.

This week's release will not be a regular war, where you see a war meter increase as you defeat opponents. Instead, you will:

  1. Journey to the Vampire War battlegrounds and speak with the four contenders for the throne.
  2. Choose who you wish to ally with, then head into battle against their biggest threat.
  3. Defeat their enemies to "vote" for your choice*** 
  4. Next Thursday, October 21st, we will tally up the first round of votes, then...
  5. You will be able to choose which of the two remaining contenders you want to battle for.
  6. On Friday, October 24th, we will announce the NEW ruler of Darkovia, as chosen by Lore's heroes in a final BLOODBATH!!!

** A relative of the much-loved Queen Safiria
*** The "Vote" items will be 0 AC and stack up to 10,000.

I am still deciphering the history scrolls the Vampire Elders brought with them, so more of each clan's story will arrive soon!

Dage's Death Rider Limited Time Rares Shop

Speed, skulls, and wicked wheels - these were the inspiration for Dage's Death Rider armor set! Cruise through Lore battling from the back of a bike... then pull into Yulgar's to chat with the rest of your gang. Find his shop in the Game Menu this Friday, available until October 24th!

Dage has created a HUGE number of helms... some of which will be Legion exclusives! The Death Stalker (not the bike version) will also be available for Legion Tokens as well as other currencies. 

Live-testing the new Chaos Saga Finale

The permanent version of this summer's Chaos Saga finale is in live-testing. Help us polish the event for all our future heroes by heading to Mount DoomSkull, then reporting back any issues you find on our Bug Tracker.

If you did not finish the Chaos Saga finale before this weekend, you will need to start the event over. That will ensure you do not experience any progression issues through the storyline.

6th Birthday Gift: 200 AdventureCoins Free

If you've logged in within the past 30 days AND you were level 5 or higher, check your AC count... because you got 200 FREE AdventureCoins! This is our way of saying "thanks for playing AQW" as we continue to celebrate AQW's 6th birthday all month long!

Who will YOU Fight for?

Help Choose the Next Ruler of Darkovia's Vampires!

This Friday, /join EternalNight and talk to each of the four contenders seeking to become the next ruler of the vampires.* 

Learn their backstories, the lore of their clans, and why they each believe they are the BEST creature to rule the vampires!

  • Lady Solani, First Fang of the Cor Mortis, of the Blood Royal (and Safiria's niece)
  • Rapaxi, Elder of the Umbral Legion
  • Kurok Gravefang, Werepyre Lich and Leader of the Abyssal Horde 
  • Baron Luca, Head of the Nyx Aeterna Clan, and Master Shapeshifter

Each is prepared to battle their mortal enemy as they fight for the throne, but they will need YOUR help! Once the weakest two contenders have been defeated (based on who YOU decide to fight for), the remaining two combatants and their champion (that's you!) will go head to head... in a bloodbath of monstermental proportions!

* But hurry! The Convocation of the Night, which binds them to peace for as long as the debates last, will only hold so long!

Choice Maker

October 13, 2014

Friday: Blood and Blades

Battle for the Darkovian Vampire Throne

The time has come to choose a successor for Queen Safiria, ruler of Darkovia's vampires.* After this summer's war, a different type of chaos reigns among the vampires of Lore, and the lycans of Darkovia are starting to probe for weaknesses.


Of the surviving Vampire Elders, several have come forth to claim the throne… as well as a half-breed new-comer who has no right, but strength, speed, skill, and POWER! This Friday, fight for the Vampire YOU want to take the Vampire Throne; your support will make the difference between ruling… and being banished back to the shadows of obscurity.

* It is best when rulers can choose a successor before they must leave the throne. For those of you who have not finished the Chaos Saga finale, spoilers will be kept to a minimum.

Vote with your blades

You have 4 contenders to choose from:

  • Baron Luca, Head of the Nyx Aeterna Clan
  • Rapaxi, Elder of the Umbral Legion 
  • Kurok Gravefang, Leader of the Abyssal Horde
  • Lady Solani, First Fang of the Cor Mortis** and her General, Ensis

One of these four has... plans... for Edvard and Esmee. Regrettably, I am not sure they'll last out the week in Darkovia.

This week's release will not be a regular war, where you see a war meter increase as you defeat opponents. Instead, you will:

  1. Journey to the Vampire War battlegrounds and speak with the four contenders for the throne.
  2. Choose who you wish to ally with, then head into battle against their biggest threat.
  3. Defeat their enemies to "vote" for your choice*** 
  4. Next Tuesday, October 21st, we will tally up the first round of votes, then...
  5. You will be able to choose which of the two remaining contenders you want to battle for.
  6. On Friday, October 24th, we will announce the NEW ruler of Darkovia, as chosen by Lore's heroes!

** A relative of the much-loved Queen Safiria
*** The "Vote" items will be 0 AC and stack up to 10,000.

Dage's Death Rider Limited Time Rares Shop

Speed, skulls, and wicked wheels - these were the inspiration for Dage's Death Rider armor set! Cruise through Lore battling from the back of a bike... then pull into Yulgar's to chat with the rest of your gang. Find his shop in the Game Menu this Friday, available until October 24th!

Dage has created a HUGE number of helms... some of which will be Legion exclusives! The Death Stalker (not the bike version) will also be available for Legion Tokens as well as other currencies. 

Also Happening This Week

We've got a lot more going on in AQWorlds, including:

Live-testing the new Chaos Saga Finale

The permanent version of this summer's Chaos Saga finale is in live-testing. Help us polish the event for all our future heroes by heading to Mount DoomSkull, then reporting back any issues you find on our Bug Tracker.

If you did not finish the Chaos Saga finale before this weekend, you will need to start the event over. That will ensure you do not experience any progression issues through the storyline.

NEW gear in Artix's 6th Birthday Rares shop

Talk to Artix in /Northpointe later today to find NEW gear, including Gravefang's wings and the Undead Paladinslayer armor!

6th Birthday Gift: 200 AdventureCoins Free

Starting this Friday, the month of birthday gifts will continue with a free 200 AdventureCoins! To get the gift, you'll need to:

  • Have logged in within the past 30 days
  • Be level 5 or higher

Weekend Update

Network Issues and Chaos Saga Finale Fixes

The Curse of the Phantom Pixel, our 12th anniversary/6th birthday all-game release... has gotten ahold of the very servers running our games! The coders have been and continue to work on resolving the network issues our games are experiencing this weekend. Thank you all for your patience as we battle the bugs and collect all the escaped server hamsters!

All-Game Event Guide

Not sure what to do to save Yurei from the Curse, collect all 13 cursed artifacts, and unlock the OmniKnight Blade? Check out THIS GUIDE or see the TL;DR (too long; did not read) version below:

  • AQWorlds: /join Northpointe and complete Artix's quests for 7 artifacts, then merge them to create the Omni Artifact
  • Epic Duel: Battle to find the shards of Titan's Coffee Mug, then assemble the pieces
  • AdventureQuest: Hunt through AQ using the "Random Battle" button until you come across a possessed Artix wielding the ShadowFire Axe of Curses and defeat him for the reward
  • DragonFable: Head to the Wastelands and quest for a scrap of the Mysterious Necromancer's Cloak
  • MechQuest: Talk to River in Soluna City to secure the Cursed Mod Tape before it's too late!
  • OverSoul: Battle until you find Thok and his Cursed Phoenix Blade
  • HeroSmash: Battle the monsters in the Hottest area until you get Hottica's Cursed Shield

Chaos Saga Finale: Live Testing

Over the last 3 weeks, Reens has rebuilt the ENTIRE Chaos Saga finale (8 weeks of releases!!!), fixing the issues and smoothing out the quest progression. Our testers have run through the new, permanent version many times... but YOU guys are the best testers we could ever have (because there are tens of thousands of you)! That is why this weekend, we are live-testing Reens' Chaos Saga fixes to see if there are places where you are unsure of what to do or where to go.

  1. If you have NOT been able to complete the Chaos Saga finale before now (either because you are just beginning or have had issues), /join MountDoomskull and battle (or Legend Skip) your way to the top of the Moutain. 
  2. Speak with Maya to complete the first quest of the NEW, permanent quest chain. Then defeat Drakath and watch the cutscene. You MUST choose a Chaos Lord form to continue on in the storyline.
  3. Once you have, speak to Maya again and she will send you to begin "World War Lore."
  4. Loremaster Maya will always be your guide through the Chaos Saga finale. If you're ever unsure of where to go, speak to her!

Tonight's network issues have caused some progress save errors; once things have settled, we will be adjusting Maya's dialogue and guide buttons based on the first round of player feedback from earlier today!

Artifact Hunter Class

Birthday Class Skills Breakdown!

Hey everyone it’s Zereldo here and today I’m gonna be talking about the new Artifact hunter* class. This class will be available for the 6th anniversary celebration of AQW.

Details

Before you get your hands on this class there are a few things you’ll want to know, such as how to get your hands on this class.

  • Talk to Artix in Northpointe to find the Class!
  • Get the class for 2000 Acs OR collect the merge items from the daily quest.
  • Legends can earn the merge items 2x faster!
  • The AC version will be available until next year’s birthday!
  • The earned will be available until May of 2015, when the birthday merge shop leaves.

Artifact Hunter Breakdown

Artifact hunters explore Lore selectively looking for rare and powerful artifacts to aid them in their battles and adventures.

Mana regen: Artifact Hunters gain mana from all hits landed in combat,and especially on crits. The amount depends on damage relative to *their own* HP total.

For Stats and Enhancements: Artifact hunters use both strength and intellect to fight their battles. Hybrid enhancements are a good start, but basically all stats help the class in some way.

Auto Attack

2 second cooldown.

A basic attack, taught to all adventurers.

You’ve seen this before on many classes. It needs no further explanation.

Rank 1: Strike of Awe

15 mana, 3 second cooldown.

You strike using power amassed from the Blade of Awe. You have a 25% chance to leave your opponent awestruck which stuns them for 2 seconds.

This move is your goto damage move. It’s physically based, and also has  25% chance of stunning your enemy for seconds. The stun may not be reliable, but when it happens it can be helpful. If you are lucky, it may even occur multiple times in a row which could be a lot of fun.

Rank 2: Supreme Arcane Spell

20 mana, 8 second cooldown.

Using the power of the supreme Arcane staff you deal damage and apply a magical burn to your Opponent.

This move is increased by your spell power and intellect. It’s attack is ok, but it’s the DoT that makes the difference. The DoT also gains in power based on your INT.

Rank 3: Shiny Mirror Shield

30 mana, 15 Second cooldown.

Using the power of the shiny mirror you deflect a portion of your opponent's attack back at them for 6 seconds and take decreased incoming damage.

You may recognise this sort of move from Pyromancer Class. This version has a shorter cooldown and longer duration, but provides less of an incoming damage reduction and no heal. It’s useful when being overwhelmed by lots of damage as it decreases the amount you take AND reflects some straight back at your opponent.

Rank 4: Cursed Ring of Dragon Control & Resourceful

STR and INT increased by 20%

Dodge Crit and Hit Chance all increased by 5%

The first passive gives you the physical strength and magical might of dragons and makes a  difference to the class over all. Your second one shows your mastery of Artifact hunting and represents all the small tricks you’ve picked up over the years. It will make a small difference to several of your stats.

Rank 5: Destiny Or Doom

30 mana, 10 second cooldown.

You’ve come across many blessed and cursed items over the years and have learnt how to channel their energies to work in your favour. You either trigger DOOM which increases your Damage output, Strength and Crit damage or Destiny, which give your a large HoT and increases your Intellect and Haste.

This move is what spices up the class. When using this move you will either get Destiny OR Doom and Each effect has a 50% chance of occurring. Doom is basically damage focused, while Destiny is a heal. You are leaving your heal to chance here, but this is a VERY powerful HoT. Ideally because of your stun from the first move, and your shield you won’t be taking that much damage, so even if you don’t get the heal on your first try you should be able to survive until it does happen. The Intellect and strength boost may change how you want to use your first two moves slightly.

Final Thoughts

This is a nice little solo class to use. Not dedicated to being a tank or to Damage, but somewhere in the middle. It gives you some nice options based on enhancements as well, and has an interesting final move that dramatically affects how you use the class.

* Those of you with keen eyes may have seen it spelled “Artefact hunter” on my character page. Depending on whether you use American English or British English the way you spell the word changes. Where I live we use the British spelling. I have since changed it to the American spelling.

Warning Maker

October 10, 2014

This Weekend: 7 games...

The Curse of the Phantom Pixel is spreading...

Your screen is made of millions of pixels. At any moment... a pixel can die. An evil artist foolishly used dead pixels to create items in our 7 games... and as you know, things created from dead pixels are cursed. 

This weekend (and for the next month), battle through AQWorlds, Epicduel, DragonFable, MechQuest, HeroSmash, Oversoul and AdventureQuest Classic to find all 13 items and lift the curse afflicting Yurei, a mysterious ghost haunting NorthPointe.

  • AdventureQuest Worlds:   collect 7 cursed artifacts* and merge them into the "Omni Artifact"!
  • AdventureQuest Classic: Shadowfire Axe of Curses
  • DragonFable: Cloak scrap artifact
  • MechQuest: Cursed Tape Mod
  • EpicDuel: Titan’s Doom Mug
  • HeroSmash: Hottica’s Cursed Flame Shield
  • OverSoul:  Thok's Cursed Phoenix Blade Character

Kurok Gravefang ALSO wants to find the cursed artifacts!

The AQWorlds' team combined our 6th birthday event with the Artix Entertainment 12th Anniversary all-game event, which means after you check out the Birthday Rares Shop (including Kurok's armor set)... YOU need to quest for 7 cursed artifacts:

  • Death’s Cursed Hourglass 
  • Cysero’s Doom Sock 
  • Unholy Wasabi 
  • Cursed Chickencow Claw 
  • Zorbak’s Haunted Skull (stolen from his staff) 
  • Dragon Khan’s Corrupt Scepter 
  • Sir Ver’s Cursed Power Button

Unlock the Ultimate Prize: the OmniKnight Blade!

Collecting the 13 artifacts and undoing the curse is a quest for the OmniKnights, our bravest players who play multiple AE games. This is not a quest for the faint of heart… but once complete, you will unlock the OmniKnight Blade in ALL 7 of our games!

Once you have reached all 7 game goals, a final “Get Prize Code” button will appear on your linked game accounts page. Click that to scan all of your accounts for the artifacts!

To unlock the OmniKnight Blade, you must:

  1. Battle through all 7 games to gather the 13 cursed artifacts
  2. Log in at our Portal Site and link all 7 of your game accounts
  3. Go to the “Quests” section of the Portal Site and scan your game accounts
  4. Log into each of your game accounts to unlock a shop with the OmniKnight Blade

Rumors...

I have started seeing posts and tweets about some kind of cursed video. That does NOT sound good... So beware, heores:

If you come across a link to the video...

Don't watch it...

Don't search for it...

Just don't...

Artifact Hunter Class Updates

The Legend-only daily quest now rewards FOUR Ancent Artifacts a day while the all-player daily rewards two Rare artifacts a day. Gravefang also has a small chance to drop the Ancient Artifact each time you defeat him!

All farmable Class items are 0 ACs for free storage. Happy birthday!

AQWorlds 6th Birthday!

The Curse of the Phantom Pixel is spreading...

This Friday is AQWorlds 6th birthday and Artix Entertainments 12th anniversary, and word has begun spreading about a deadly curse unleashed on all 7 of our video games! The art of 13 treasured artifacts has been corrupted… and the infection is beginning to spread. 

But what happens if someone ELSE collects them first?!

  • What: Cross-game scavenger hunt for 13 cursed artifacts
  • When: Friday, October 10th, 2014 at sundown
  • Who: Join tens of thousands of your fellow heroes and the Artix Entertainment team
  • Where: All 7 Artix Entertainment games

You Are Not the Only One Seeking the Artifacts...

Dead pixels form when too much color/power is concentrated into a single pixel... and it burns so fiercely it becomes a dead pixel. When the power of those phantom pixels is harnessed by the right (or very, very wrong) person, deadly magic can be performed.

This Friday, before you can fully stop the Curse of the Phantom Pixel, you'll need to defeat Gravefang, the Werepyre Lich King, in AQWorlds. He, too, has heard of the cursed artifacts, and believes the 13th and final artifact - Death’s Cursed Hourglass - will give him the ultimate power over unlife.

  • Quest through Northpointe and across Lore seeking 7 of the 13 cursed artifacts
  • Unlock the Artifact Hunter Class for 2k ACs or farm daily quests! (Legends can farm 2X faster)
  • Battle through our other Artix Entertainment games to find the final 6 artifacts
  • Complete the event and link your game accounts on the Portal to unlock the OmniKnight Blade in all 7 games

Chaos Finale Saga Updates

The main map-building focus this week has been on finishing up the permanent version of the entire Chaos Saga finale (from MountDoomSkull to the final battle). These new maps will have all bugs fixed and include a much smoother progression. Anyone who had issues with the current finale releases should go back to Mount Doomskull and begin the finale storyline once more with the cleaner progression.

Reens had a herculean task but almost entirely-recoded ALL of the releases in just under 2 weeks.  Testers are throwing themselves at that all weekend long to catch issues. Once these changes to live early next week, we will put the new maps live (and remove the rares shops).

Sentinel Class Breakdown

Class Breakdown Day!

Hey everyone it’s Zereldo here and today I’m going to be talking to you about the Sentinel Class (while borrowing Alina’s face again). You’ll have to be an Upholder to get the Sentinel Class.


How do I become a 6th Upholder?

All that we ask is that you help support AQW the game undergoes its exciting rebirth!

More Details!

Here are some other things about the class that you will probably want to know about the Sentinel Class.

  • It releases on the 3rd of October (on release day).
  • Sentinel Class will available to ALL Upholders AND Founders. (Yes that means Founders, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and all future upholders).
  • As long as you have either a Founder or Upholder badge you will be able to buy the class from the Book of Lore whenever you want to.
  • There are NOT 7 versions of this class. There is ONLY ONE version that will be available in all the stores.
  • Sentinel Class will be Adventure Coin tagged and non member. 
  • As well as the class there are other accessories (including an armor only version) that you will be able to buy to match the armor.
  • There WILL NOT be a 2000 Adventure Coin shortcut to get this class.

Just Before I Begin

A special thanks goes to Arklen for coding this class. We spent many hours together working through weird bugs and having to change aspects of the class entirely. He is new to coding classes and I am new to designing them. Having to create it together was a bit of of an adventure. So make sure you give him a huge thank you.

Sentinel Class Breakdown!

Sentinels are powerful and elite defenders of Lore.

For Mana Regen: Sentinels gain mana from all hits landed in combat,and especially on crits. The amount depends on damage relative to *their own* HP total.

For Stats and Enhancements: Sentinels favour Strength, Endurance and Dexterity, and probably like to add a bit of luck to spice up their day.


Auto Attack

2 second cooldown.

A basic attack, taught to all adventurers.

You’ve seen this before on many classes. It needs no further explanation.

Rank 1: Sentinel’s Strike

15 mana, 5 second cooldown.

A strong and reliable attack used by Sentinels that deals moderate damage to your opponent.

This move only has one purpose and that is sustained damage. It has no fancy auras or effects, but does its job well.

Rank 2: Active Endurance

15 Mana, 8 second cooldown.

An attack that deals light damage but also heals you for a small amount. The lower YOUR health the larger the heal.

This heal will not suddenly bring you back up to full health, but it will keep you fighting for longer. It’s purpose is to increase survivability, but you will still have to be careful with it and pick your battles wisely. It also does a small amount of damage just to be nice.

Rank 3: Adrenaline Rush

20 Mana, 22 second cooldown.

You unleash a burst of strength and speed which applies Adrenaline Rush increasing your damage output by 50% and haste by 30% for 8 seconds. You also suffer from Self Disregard which applies a DoT on yourself.

This is the move Sentinel Class revolves around. The numbers are pretty staggering, a 50% damage boost combined with a 30% haste boost. You’re looking at increased damage and being able to use your moves more often for 8 seconds. However with all this power there does come a cost (not just in Mana). It does apply a reasonably powered DoT onto YOU.

This is your high risk, high reward move. It won’t kill you unless you manage yourself poorly, but it will put you at a disadvantage because your heal will not be able to keep up with the increased damage you are taking. You can always nullify the DoT by bringing a friend with a strong heal though. It won’t make that much of a different to Active Endurance, but you should notice a nice increase to your damage output for Sentinel’s Strike.

Rank 4: Streamline Armor & War Veteran

Increases dodge rate by 8%

Strength increased by 15%

This makes you a little more powerful and a little harder to hit. WIth any luck you’ll be dodging while you take your self DoT, and your 50% damage buff will mean a little bit more damage.

Rank 5: Demolish

35 mana, 15 second cooldown.

You perform a single strike for massive damage that also applies Disempower which reduces your opponent's chance to critical hit by 25% for 5 seconds.

Here is your nuke, but it is no ordinary nuke, it is your anti-nuke nuke. It does a nice amount of damage in it’s own right, especially when paired with Adrenaline Rush. It gets even better when you factor in Disempower because you have the capability of seriously reducing the potential damage of your opponent's nukes and other attacks. Their luck won’t help them now.

But Zereldo, where is the Rank 10 Passive?

Good observation player voice from the forums and various forms of social media. You may have noticed that Beastmaster, Naval Commander and Sentinel Classes all have no listed rank 10 passives. Unfortunately we can’t do rank 10 passives at the moment, BUT when we can do rank 10 passives we will come back to these classes and assign some. You’ll just have to be patient. If we could give you a rank 10 passive we would.

Final Thoughts

Overall this class does have an element of risk to it. Your MP regeneration and health regain are both most effective when your health is lowest and to unleash your best damage, you suffer from a DoT. While this class can perform on its own, it is best in team situations where you have a good healer allowing you to constantly use Adrenaline Rush to deal massive damage.

You can always button mash with this class, but for the best results you are going to have to use some thinking and strategy.

Become a 6th Upholder

Support AQWorlds and Become a Legend!

AQW is coming up on another birthday! That's means starting TODAY, we are once again offering the chance to become an AQW Upholder!*

* The same way that the Founders got their chance at the birth of the game and the way 1st Upholders got their chance five years ago, 2nd Upholders got the chance four years ago, 3rd Upholders got the chance three years ago, 4th Upholders got their chance two years ago, and 5th upholders got their chance last year at this time)

What is an Upholder?

Six years ago, AdventureQuest Worlds went live and players jumped at the chance to become the first Members of AQW. These lucky, early supporters of the game became the game's Founders. Now, we are celebrating AQW's 6th birthday and offering YOU the chance to join the AQW Founders by becoming a 6th Upholder!

The first six years have been awesome, but you have not seen anything yet. The Chaos Saga changed everything and SOON AdventureQuest Worlds will reawaken to find that the last six years were just training for the REAL battles ahead. BIG changes are coming and AQW is being REBORN!

What does a 6th Upholder get?

As a 6th Upholder, you shall receive:

  • New Class: Sentinel Class!*
  • Rare: Doom Star Sword
  • Rare: Brilliant Star Sword
  • 6th Upholder Character Page Badge
  • Infinite bragging rights

Once you become a 6th Upholder, you can easily access these Items in your Book of Lore by clicking your 6th Upholder Badge icon in the Badges tab.

* The Sentinel Class will be available for ALL previous Upholders and Founders as our way of saying thanks for supporting us in the past!

How do I become a 6th Upholder?

All that we ask is that you help support AQW the game undergoes its exciting rebirth!

Please note that only Upgraded Legend Memberships count toward 6th Upholder.

Want to know if you're already an Upholder?

That's easy! Just click the Manage Account link on the left under the ACCOUNT section. As soon as you sign in you'll see when your membership expires. Here's mine:

Cool! When Do I Get My Upholder Gear?

6th Upholder badges and Star Swords will be awarded as you log in, starting October 1st! You will find your 6th Upholder Badge in your Book of Lore in the Other Badges tab. The Sentinel Class and Armor (with color-custom accessories) will arrive in your badge shop this Friday, October 3rd!

Only Memberships Count?

Yes. You can use Artix Points on the Portal site or any method in AQW to upgrade, but it MUST be an AQW Membership. AdventureCoins DO NOT COUNT TOWARD 6th Upholder.

PkerSlayer and video game friends with Star Swords

Your Support Makes AQWorlds Possible!

Thank you so much for helping us make AQWorlds! Without you, we couldn't make this game, or allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy it for free. We couldn't keep AQWorlds running without every single upgrade and AC that you buy. Nearly every penny you spend goes back into the game.

Though some people prefer buying AdventureCoins and others prefer upgrading, anyone who spends real money on this game deserves to get as much as we can give them, because without their support... there wouldn't BE an AQWorlds for everyone to play!

You may not know this but AQW (like all AE games) is ENTIRELY supported by the players. We have no financial backers and nobody owns stock in the company. Clicking on ads and doing AExtras offers does bring in some money, but not nearly enough to keep AQWorlds free for everyone to enjoy. 

That's why we continue to reward the AQWorlds' Founders, who supported us in the very beginning. To make sure they know how much we appreciate that, we are continuing to give them free gear each year! 

Thank you for battling alongside us, and for sharing your ideas and love of AQWorlds with us. You truly are the best gaming community on the internet, and I am genuinely grateful for all of you. /bow Thank you for the first 6 years of AQWorlds, and here's to another 5 years, 10 years, and beyond!
