Lies! HUVr board is REAL in AQWorlds!
There’s been a lot of rumors floating around the internet today, talking about a levitating hover board named the HUVr. Everyone is saying that the HUVr board is a hoax, a fake, a scam, a joke. Well…
HUVr board is REAL! When you log into Battleon, speak to Cleric Joy and open the Battleon Assorted Shop. It’s only 2,014 gold, too!
Your legit HUVr board cannot fly… but you sure will look fly beating monsters back to the future =p

Empowered by Pink!
Happy Tuesday! And what a glorious day it is! When I arrived to the Secret Underground Lab, two gift boxes greeted me from our fellow AQW heroes!
Ooooh! How exciting! I quickly opened the smallest present and an explosion of glitz and glamor filled my eyes:
OMG OMG OMG! A Bedazzled Pink Computer Mouse from the 3 sisters, Princess Rissa, Diane Swiftfingers, and Jkg082201hero! Eeeeeee I love it soooo much! Thank you pretty ladies =D
Your kindness (and pinkness!) has touched my heart, and for that, I am creating 2 in-game Sparkling Mouse Pets to show the AQWorld how much you mean to me. Princess Rissa, Diane Swiftfingers, and Jkg082201hero will get these pets free of charge while everyone else can obtain these shimmering squeakies from my shop in Beleen’s Dream Island this Friday =D
Now, on to Submeobi’s gifts!
Oh Submeobi, I love-love-LOVE all my gifts! Thank you so much!!! You really know how to brighten my day everyday…and, consequently, doom Artix and Dage the Evil to a life of pink madness =D
That huggable adorable pink squid plushie totally belongs in game. I’ll get to work making an in-game pet for you and put it in your inventory =) Everyone else can get the Pink Squid Plushie pet from my shop in Beleen’s Dream Island come Friday. Do you like its eyes, or should I make them button eyes? Let me know on my Twitter!
Additionally, I am bestowing a Pink Goblet of Love just for you, Submeobi! It’ll magically appear in your inventory once it has finished being forged =D
Oh happy day! The greatest part about working for Artix Entertainment is having amazing friends like you all. I am so blessed to have such caring friends who bring a smile to my face (and pink things for me to snuggle)!
You guys and girls are the best, and I cannot wait to defeat the forces of Chaos alongside you!

Bluddron the Betrayer
I need a hero... and a Valentine!
New Valentine’s Day Event Tomorrow!
Happy Thursday! I am soooo super excited because Valentine’s Day is tomorrow! And that means we are 1 day away from finding me a Valentine. Woohooo!
Even my fortune cookie knows I’ll find true love!!
Tomorrow at sunset, you shall embark to Beleen’s Dream Island, and whoever is the first to claim the Legendary Cherry atop the Red Velvet Cake Mountain will be my Valentine =D
Check it out! Last week, I received a bull balloon (a bulloon!) from a secret admirer. Who could have sent this adorabull gift? I love it so muuuc---
OMG! A wild gust of wind appeared. It’s super effective! (looks like love AND wind is in the air... who knew!?)
Come back here, bulloon!!! You’re not getting away from me!
“Noooooo! My bulloon is flying away! I gatta catch it! BRB!”

Love is in the air... and desktops!
Beleen's Dream Island!
New Valentine’s Day release next Friday, February 14!
Hello my loves! I have some super exciting news to announce! Next Friday, February 14th, is the lovey-dovey pink-a-licious holiday known as Valentine’s Day. And guess what… Alina, Memet, and Artix (yes, srsly, even him!) are allowing me to have my own PINK zone in AQWorlds for this special occasion!
Imagine a magical dream island full of EVERYTHING that I cherish: pink sand beaches, Sriracha rivers, chocolate!!!!, balloon animals, heart-shaped landscaping, ADORABLE critters, marshmallows, fortune cookies, and the world’s largest Red Velvet Cake mountain!
So now that I’m getting my own zone-sweet-zone, there’s only 1 thing left missing: a Valentine! All the heroes of AQWorlds have a special place in my heart (I wuv you!), but…. I was wondering… *blush* if YOU would like to be my Valentine?
BUT there’s a catch! With over 50 million AQW heroes, it’s ganna be WAAY too hard to randomly pick one of you guys or gals. So instead, I’m holding a little competition on Valentine’s Day to see who is worthy of being my Valentine!
Behold! The Crystalized Cherry atop the Red Velvet Cake Mountain! Whoever is the first to retrieve this legendary cherry (hehe that’s super fun to say!) will be my Valentine =D
But of course there’s going to be ridiculous quests to prove your worth. Would you expect anything less??!? Hahaha!
To: Beleen, From: Secret Admirer
Ooohh!!! What is THIS?! A present from a Secret Admirer? It’s not from Submeobi… so I wonder who?
The tag says, “Do not open until Valentine’s Day.” *looks left* *looks right* *tears open present*
OMG OMG OMG! It’s a Bull Balloon! A Bulloon! OMG!!! Isn’t he simply adorabull!
I wonder who could have sent him?! Well whoever it is… I hope they reveal themselves on Valentine’s Day!
And I cannot WAIT to see if YOU will be my Valentine!
Totally excited? Me too! Let me hear your thoughts on my Twitter!

Gallop towards victory!
On the fateful day of February 7, 2014, the world’s best MMO is getting a brand new class: the Jouster!
Jump upon your faithful steed and sprint into battle as you obliterate the opposition with your killer Strength, Endurance, and Dexterity stats.
Obtain the Jouster Class
There are a few ways you can become a super awesome Jouster.
- Win the Jouster ARMOR from the Wheel of Doom or the Wheel of Destiny
- Type /join doom in the chat bar for Wheel of Doom
- Type /join destiny in the chat bar for Wheel of Destiny
- Complete Quests with the Jouster Armor to unlock Jouster Class
- Win the Jouster CLASS in the Wheel of Doom/Wheel of Destiny
- Get the Jouster CLASS in the Wheel of Doom/Destiny Merge shop
- Invent a time traveling machine, give Artix Entertainment the rights to patent your invention, get hired by the AQWorlds team, and get the Jouster Class for FREE! (Yes, we're serious)
It takes A LOT of skill to ride (and stay on!) a mechanical steed in the midst of battle. As you level up your Jouster Class, you shall learn the following abilities:
2 second cooldown
A not so basic attack taught to all Jousters. Deals bonus damage on your First Strike... CHAAARGE! Has a chance to stun off balance targets.
5 second cooldown
A moderate attack that can puncture your targets armor with enough momentum or knock your opponent off balance with enough precision.
14 second cooldown
Deals light damage and for the next 6 seconds your accuracy is greatly increased. If your opponent is already punctured he will begin to bleed for damage over time. Gives your thrust attacks the ability to knock your opponent off balance, greatly reducing their chance to dodge.
17 second cooldown
Repairs your mechanical parts restoring a moderate amount of health.
Increases your chance to dodge by 10%
Increases endurance 15%.
29 second cooldown
A battle cry granting the jouster a boost in momentum. Increases haste and while greatly increasing the damage of your First Strike in combat. Also gives your thrust attacks the ability to puncture your opponents armor increasing damage they take from all sources.
Joust attacks have a chance to give you “First Strike” in which for 6 seconds all joust and thrust attacks are as powerful as your first strike.
Jouster arrives 2/7/14!
Assuming you’re reading this today (and not using your prototype time machine), then you can become the Jouster Class starting tomorrow night!
You are a great person and a great hero—and you deserve a Class that’s equally as great! I cannot wait to fight alongside you as Lore’s greatest Jouster!

Shattered Sunroof Survivor
Beleen has an Arch Nemesis… but who?!
Yes. You read that title right. My car’s sunroof EXPLODED after leaving the Secret Underground Lab last night.
No, no. It didn’t BREAK… it spontaneously shattered. For no reason whatsoever. There were no cars ahead of me, and no rocks or other debris hit my Scion that would have caused the sunroof to explode.
And it’s a good thing it’s not raining or anything, or else driving to the Toyota Dealership without a roof would be veerrrry difficult…
Ah. 100% chance of rain. Well isn’t that LOVELY.
Alright folks. I need your help on this one. Someone APPARENTLY has it out for me, since, you know, shattering sunroofs isn’t a common occurrence. Here’s a list of possible evildoers:
1. Chairman Platinum
Ah yes, the evil CEO of Ebil Corp. Platinum has been the archenemy of Artix since the dawn of AdventureQuest. And 2 years ago, Platinum nearly succeeded in destroying Artix Entertainment. Perhaps he’s at it again… by sabotaging my car with rain-activated-sunroof-exploding-Windex!
2. Creepy Cactus Creeper
Meet the Cactus Creeper. This SSSSSUPER annoying thing runs around the Sandsea Oasis, exploding into innocent Bupers Camels. Perhaps a Cactus Creeper found my Scion… as it was traveling 40mph… saw its shiny sunroof… and sssssssss KAAABOOM!
And the final suspect is…
3. Artix von Krieger
*GASP!* Yes, I’m serious. Artix von Krieger. Everyone knows PINK is the Paladin’s greatest weakness, and Artix, with his glass-window-slaying expertise, could possibly be to blame. And he KNOWS that I’m currently designing an ENTIRE ZONE dedicated to ME for this upcoming Valentine’s Day release. …Granted, I cannot place Artix at the scene of the crime, since he was at the Secret Lab…tweeting me at the time of the incident… um.. yeah… BUT STILL!!!! I’m watchin’ you, Artix. *glare*
I need your help. Who do YOU think is to blame? Or… do you think it could be someone else?!?!? O_______O
Post your Sunroof-Sabotaging Suspect(s) on my Twitter!
xoxo Beleen and her Scion tC (who has suddenly transformed into a convertible)

Elementals, my dear Watson.
Introducing Elements & Shapeshifting
This Friday, January 24, 2014, marks the day that your favorite MMORPG introduces Elements into the world of Lore. DragonFable’s famous Shapeshifting NPC, Fae, will guide Legendary Heroes into a new elemental zone: Fable Forest.
Fable Forest is home to the Guardian Tree and the 4 fundamental Elements: Water, Fire, Nature, and Wind. Due to Fae’s unique—yet uncontrollable—Shapeshifting abilities, she will randomly change into a DragonFable-inspired Elemental creature during your quests, which will buff your Attack power, decrease your Attack power, or remain neutral.
If you’re fighting Fire Elementals, and Fae changes into a Water Elemental, you will do an Attack Damage increase!
But… if you’re fighting Water Elementals, and Fae sneezes and changes into a Fire Elemental, then you will do less Attack Damage.
Same thing with Nature and Wind: Wind Element is strong against Nature Elementals, and Nature Elementals will do less damage against Wind Elements.
And if Fae changes into an element that’s neither strong nor weak against the Elementals you’re fighting, you’ll do normal Attack Damage. So if Fae turns into a Fire Elemental, and you’re fighting Wind or Nature Elementals, you’ll do normal Attack Damage.
After you help Fae retrieve the 4 fundamental Elements stones, the portal in the Guardian Tree will open, granting you an acquaintance with the Forest Guardian. Here you will uncover Fae’s mysterious past and how she got her Shapeshifting powers!
It’s Elemental, My Dear Watson
This is only the beginning of Elements in AQWorlds. One of the best features in AdventureQuest & DragonFable is Elemental strengths and weaknesses, which we will slowly and carefully implement into AQWorlds. Only 4 Elements are being introduced this week, but if you wanna get a head start at understanding Elements, then keep on reading!
There are 8 Elements total. Moving clockwise, the Elements are STRONG against the next, so Fire beats Ice, Ice beats Wind, Wind beats Nature, etc.
If you move counterclockwise, Elements are WEAK against the previous, so Fire is weak against Water, Water is weak against Energy, Energy is weak against Nature, etc.
There are 2 Unique Elements not contained within the Elemental wheel: Light and Darkness. Light is strong against Darkness, and Darkness is strong against Light.
REMEMBER! In Friday’s release, the only Elemental strengths and weaknesses you need to know are:
- Water is STRONG against Fire
- Fire is WEAK against Water
- Wind is STRONG against Nature
- Nature is WEAK against Wind
Thousands of your fellow Heroes on Twitter and Facebook are teeming with excitement about Elementals. We know the feeling, too! YAAY!
But we also understand that some of you might be worried about Elementals “changing the game too much.” Do not worry, my friend! As stated earlier, we will slowly and carefully implement Elements into the game. And with your help and suggestions, we will take AQWorlds to a whole new (gaming) level!
Defeating Drakath and the Lord of Chaos is still our Number 1 priority, but we wanted to give you a little sneak-peek at what the Team is planning for you. Elements are AWESOME in AQ and DF, and we hope to bask in that awesomeness in the upcoming future with you =)
Feel free to share your thoughts on my Twitter or on the AQWorlds Facebook page, and I look forward to mastering the Elements with you!
Battle on my loves!
xoxo Beleen =D

Sneak Peek at the newest Class arriving Friday
Normal is good… Evolved is better… and Ultra is the BEST! The Ultra Elemental Class is arriving this Friday, January 17, 2014. It is the first new class of the New Year, and it is probably the last Class you will EVER want to master!
The Ultra Elemental Class is unlike any other. You must harness each Elemental Orb Cape to prove yourself worthy of becoming the Ultra Elemental. Each Orb Cape offers special boosts when equipped:
- Water Orb: Class Points boost
extra damage against Chaos and Elemental monsters
- Fire Orb: XP boost
extra damage against Chaos and Elemental monsters
- Wind Orb: Gold boost, extra damage against Chaos and Elemental monsters
- Earth Orb: Reputation boost
extra damage against Chaos and Elemental monsters
- Energy Orb: Class Points boost
extra damage against Chaos and Dragon monsters
- Ice Orb: XP boost
extra damage against Chaos and Dragon monsters
- Light Orb: Reputation boost
extra damage against Chaos and Undead monsters
- Dark Orb: Gold boost
extra damage against Chaos and Human monsters
AC versions of the capes will be available from Draven Stormbringer in Battleon for AdventureCoins. Legends can quest for some of the Orb Capes (certain levels of Faction Rep will be required) and buy others with gold.
Once all Capes are in your possession, you shall turn them into Draven Stormbringer in Battleon who will grant you access to the Ultra Elemental Class Shop. This shop contains:
- Ultra Elemental Class: 0 AdventureCoins
- ALL Elemental Orb Capes: 0 AdventureCoins
- Exclusive Chaos Orb: ????????
The Ultra Elemental Class is undergoing hardcore skill training at the moment (HA, and I thought CrossFit was challenging!). Due to my sneaky-sneak abilities (and not knowing what "keep this a secret" means), I managed to catch a glimpse of the Ultra Elemental’s Skills before Dumoose chased me off.
- Elemental Fusion: Strike your opponent with the elements you currently have charged. Different effects based on which elemental magics are combined.
- Blaze: Deals a burst of fire damage and charges your next Elemental Fusion with Fire Magic.
- Stoneskin: Reduces all incoming damage for a duration. Charges your next Elemental Fusion with Earth Magic.
- Chain Lightning: Strike multiple opponents for increasing damage for each jump. Bounces up to 5 times. Charges your next Elemental Fusion with Energy Magic.
- Command of Darkness (passive): Strength increased by 10%
- Command of Light (passive): Intellect Increased by 10%
- Blizzard: All Elemental Fusions have a chance to unleash a fusion of Wind and Ice. The blizzard will lower your opponents haste significantly for 5 seconds.
These skills are subject to change before Friday, so don’t hold everything up there verbatim. I just wanted to share with you what I found because… well… that’s what spoiler alerts are all about!
I know you’re looking forward to mastering the Ultra Elemental Class. So make sure you log in this Friday night to be one of the first Ultra Elementals in Lore!

A Whole New “Twist” on Candy Canes
What does Frostval mean to you? Is it a time for sharing presents with loved ones? Is it to celebrate the birth of a Level 1 Healer? Is it the time for decadent desserts and bountiful feasts—all with the promise of exercising daily beginning January 1st?
To me, Frostval means spreading unconditional holiday cheer, joy, and love to everyone, everywhere! Frostval came early to a group of Special Needs Kids at my former high school. Surrounded by hundreds of balloons (and an entire carafe of coffee), I working into the wee hours of the morning, twisting 55 hand-made balloon candy canes.
It took me about 3 hours to make 55 balloon candy canes. Talk about super hard work with super soft balloons! But you know what? It was TOTALLY worth it!
As soon as I walked into my high school’s cafeteria with my giant Santa’s bag full of calorie-free candy canes, all of the children fell in love with my balloons—and so did the adults, too!
These special kids have a special place in my heart. All the warm fuzzies I felt inside me is worth more than anything else—you just cannot put a price on being a good person… with exceptional balloon animal-making skills, at that!
On behalf of all the entire AQWorlds team and all your friends at Artix Entertainment, we wish you a very merry holiday season and a happy new year!
Stay jolly, my friends =D

How the Cookie Crumbles (The Rules)
This contest will range from NOW until 11:59pm Server Time (also EST) on Tuesday, December 31st. The winners will be announced next year.
HAHA! Yes, technically it will be January 2014 by the time we view all the entries and tally up the winners =) We'll keep you updated, no worries there my friends.
The rules and guidelines are short ‘n sweet but MUST be followed exactly 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! Simple, yeah? Let’s get started!
• Your dessert MUST be created by YOU. Do not copy someone else’s hard work. That, my friend, is called cheating, and you will be disqualified for it.
• Include an index card/piece of paper/ icing signature that says your AQW Character Name AND 2013 alongside your tasty treat. 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.
• Your dessert MUST be created in some sort of Artix Entertainment theme. Create anything you want from AQW, EpicDuel, OverSoul, BladeHaven, DragonFable, BattleGems, MechQuest, AdventureQuest, Pony vs Pony, HeroSmash, or WarpForce! If we cannot tell what it is from our games, you will not be qualified.

Praying for the Philippines
Our prayers go out to those affected by Typhoon Haiyan
I am often the happy-go-lucky girl who shares wonderful information with you. But I’ve traded my smiles and bright eyes with that of frowns and tears. On November 8, the strongest recorded storm Typhoon Haiyan slammed into the Philippines, destroying nearly everything in its path.
Picture retrieved from National Post
Many of our fellow players--1.3 Million players, in fact--hail from the Philippines, and only our prayers can reach them during this horrible time. Over 10,000 people have already lost their lives due to the Typhoon, and millions of others are suffering through the destruction.

We have the chance to be real-life heroes, guys and gals. Please, share your thoughts on the AQWorlds Facebook page as to what you, me, and everyone else who plays AdventureQuest Worlds can do to help those devastated by Typhoon Haiyan.
WE can make a difference. Help us help those in desperate need!

The Skyguard Army Needs YOU!
Are you looking to meet friends in high places? Do you wish to be a whirled wide traveler? Do you crave power, glory, honor… and GOLD?! Things will start looking up once you join King Alteon’s Skyguard Army!
All hands on deck! Captain Stratos is looking for brave and fearless Legends to join the elite Skyguard Army. If you’re a Legend—and aren’t afraid of heights or Draconian Sky Pirates—then /join airship and begin your Skyguard training.
The Skyguards patrol the skies looking for signs of danger. After seeing the threat Sepulchure's flying fortress made, Alteon saw fit to create a group of kings that could combat him anywhere.
That's where the Skyguards come in—able to go anywhere and attack from anywhere. No evil, no chaos, and no Sky Pirate is safe from the Skyguards!
Prove your worth to Stratos by defeating Draconian Sky Pirates along with their master, Gladius, on the airship. Then, fly on over to the floating Skyguard Port and meet your fellow troopers:
- Alexia, Skyguard Pet Vendor
- Barnestable, Hair Shop Artiste
- Dreamweaver, Mistress of Dreams
- Fairfax, Weapon-seller
- Invidia, Recruit Assistant to Captain Straots
- Wells, Bank Vendor
Help them achieve their quests, be awarded handsomely, and you will be ready for the renowned Skyguard Academy.
What wonders will you learn at the Skyguard Academy? They say that knowledge is power… so buff your INT stats and get ready for your next Skyguard adventures!
…there’s even MORE Skyguard adventures? OH YES. This is only the beginning, intrepid Skyguard sergeant! We look forward to your service in:
- Strategy Depot
- High Command
- Pirate Base
- Dream Maze
- and Anders’ Loss
Will you heed the call of the Skyguards? Lore needs YOU… the Skyguard needs YOU… and should you prove your allegiance to the Skyguard, YOU will become the Skyguard Grenadier Class!
Join the Skyguard army today by /join airship! And if you’re not a Legend already… click here to Upgrade AND then join the Skyguards!
Battle on and up in the skies, hero!
