Upgrade Bonus Prizes

Back in March of 2017, we started a new upgrade incentive to show our appreciation for all the heroes supporting AdventureQuest Worlds. This year, we're doing the same... with a twist! 

Each month, we will choose FIVE winners from among the list of people who upgraded the previous month. Winners will find a note in their inventory with details on how to contact us with their prize choice. They will get to choose one thing from the following list:

  1. Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness ticket
  2. 5 More bank, inventory, and house spaces (over the cap, if they are already maxed out)
  3. A 20% boost to one weapon of their choice (that they already own)
  4. 2000 AdventureCoins
  5. 1 month membership

And because we know not everyone is able to upgrade every month, we will ALSO choose 1 person from the list of all the everyone who logged in within the last 30 days. They'll receive the same prizes listed above.

Prize FAQ

  1. Only one entry no matter how many times you upgrade. (Upgrades include the 1-12 month upgrade packages and 2000 - 12000 AC packages)
  2. Staff-only/custom items are not eligible
  3. Team members may only donate an item they have legitimately purchased (not gotten for free).
  4. Winners can ask for any item; the list below is just a suggestion. Requests can only be fulfilled if a another account has donated the item. 
  5. If only one donated item is left (example: Great Thief Class) and two players ask for it, the first to email will get the item.
  6. While you can ask for a non-rare, farmable item instead of a rare item, the request can only be granted if another account has donated it.
  7. You can win EIoDA more than once on the same account (if you're very, very lucky)
  8. Eligible items to request include: classes, armors, weapons, capes, helms, pets, houses. Farming resources are not eligible.

If you ask for something that the developers feel may become a problem, they will write back and explain the issue, and ask you to choose another item. 

Where will I see the note? What will it look like?

Winners will see the note in the Miscellaneous Items tab in their inventory. It will look something like this: "January 2018 Golden Ticket"

If I already won the Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness, can I win the Epic one?

Yes, you sure can! (If you're that lucky, we have a couple favors to ask...)

Are there limitations to the boost I can pick?

You can only choose an item (weapon, helm, cape, armor, etc) you currently own. It cannot already have a boost on it.

Available boosts are: Gold, XP, Class Points, Rep, Racial (increased dmg to humans, dragons, etc)

Can an upgraded account win the "log in" prize?

We went back and forth on this. Short answer: no. 
Long answer: The pool of 5 winners is only drawn from people who upgraded in the previous month. If you did not, then you're elgible for the "log in" pool.

We know there are some of you who would love to buy a membership or ACs, but just can't. Real life happens (and so do bills). We want all our free players to have a chance to win awesome prizes like this, too. 

Ultimate Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness

Back in 2012, heroes who spun the Wheel of Doom had a chance to get the Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness. Anyone with the UIoDA could choose one item from a list of items donated by other, SUPER generous heroes. For years, you guys have been asking us to bring back the UIoDA. And now... we HAVE!

The Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness is the exact same thing... only you have a chance to get it by upgrading your account with an AdventureCoin or Membership package. (Or a smaller chance just by logging into the game!)

The list below is a sample of items donated by your fellow AQWorlds heroes. If you log in and find an Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness in your inventory, follow the instructions on it to claim your prize.

Sample list of items

Want something that's not listed above? If you get the Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness, follow the instructions on the item description and ask the team. They'll see if one is available!

Want to Donate Your Items?

Want to donate one of your rare items? Email your username and the list of items you'd like to donate to: DonationHero@battleon.com!

We will contact prospective donators before removing items, so be sure to send the email from an address you check regularly. Once you donate an item, you will no longer be able to buy it back from your Buy Back Shop, so be sure before you say "yes"!

Coming Soon: Book of Monsters Epilogue

Find out what happens after the events in The Reshaper's Saga

It's only natural that we'd release our earth day event last week, as a lead up to the 2018 Book of Monsters’ epilogue. If you haven't played through the Book of Monsters: The Reshaper story, now's the time, because this Friday, we'll explains what happened to Aria AFTER the Reshaper’s defeat... and just how Fae the ShapeShifter can help her become what she is TRULY meant to be.


AQWorlds Main Story: Ten Years of Adventure

The AQWorlds team has released new story updates each week for almost ten years. "Story update" can mean many things, including our main story (which revolves around your adventures in Lore, and those of your favorite battle companions), holiday events, new towns, challenge battles, dungeon crawls, and more.

On Friday, April 27th, our story update will focus on the events that took place after those from Book of Monsters: The Reshaper Saga. (If you have just joined us recently, that was the 2nd of two Book of Monsters chapters in the larger main story for AdventureQuest Worlds.) 

The Queen of Monsters and the story updates her creatures appear in take place after the 13 Lords of Chaos Saga. In the time after her ascension, we've battled her corrupted titans, two of her children, and more than a few of her lower level minions. Her focus has shifted quite a few times, in keeping with her nature. (As you might expect with a creature made of pure Chaos, the Queen likes to be... unpredictable... and keep YOU on your toes.)

All of our updates in the post-Drakath Lore are set in a world where the Queen reigns. And waits. And plots. And watches from above. But though she - and her chaos - are a larger, more global-sized threat, the individual people and towns of Lore still need your help to tackle dangers closer to home. Like dragons rampaging through villages, cabals of dark villains teaming up against you, and lycans and vampires baring their fangs and threatening war.

Coming Soon: Later this year, we'll be returning to Darkovia, to continue the story we began in last October's Blood Moon Saga. The team (and Artix) have a number of other stories we also want to tell this year, like the Great Fire War annd Sepulchure's Origin Story. Hang on to your helms, because even more dark, deadly, and lore-filled battles are heading your way.

AQWorlds Main Story: The Who's and What's

If you thought, "Wait... I thought the main story was about the purple dude with the giant wings?"... you were correct, but only partially. Our main story includes more than just the Chaos and chaos-loving creatures in our title screen. (Though we have a LOT of those!) 

The Chaos Sagas include:

  • 13 Lords of Chaos
  • Queen of Monsters: Titans
  • Queen of Monsters: Infernal Invasion
  • Queen of Monsters: Book of Monsters

But our developers consider the main story of AQWorlds to be much larger - a comprehensive tale of your adventures in Lore. That is almost TEN YEARS of your epic victories, revelations about your past, your adventures on land, air, and sea. A tale that grand, and massive, covers a lot of ground, and includes the stories of many of your favorite characters, as well:

  • DoomWood
  • Xan's Story
  • Dage's Saga
  • Throne of Darkness
  • 7 Deadly Dragons
  • Seraphic Saga
  • Blood Moon Saga

AQWorlds Main Story: The Writers + Schedule

We often get asked who writes the main story. Over the years, that's been a number of people. Artix, Cysero, me, occasionally a number of guest writers from our contributor team, and now Memet. But throughout all of those writer changes, one creative entity has remained the same... YOU.

The direction of our story releases depends on a number of factors; one of the most important is community feedback. Though we always have a general idea of where we want a given story to go, and plan out all the bones of it in advance, if you guys aren't enjoying the way a particular story is moving, the weekly releases give us the freedom to change its direction. 

A player on Twitter, emits, asked: So why do you start new stories when you have others from years ago, or place "random filler" stories?

That is a very fair question! Because we DO update on a weekly basis (which includes new maps, monsters, characters, rewards, and cutscene animations), we occasionally need more development time to prepare the next round of story updates. Because we don't want to leave you guys with nothing new to do for a week, we add in things like challenge battles (and their rewards) or other one-week events, which generally expand the lore about someone or something.

Return to Oaklore + Undead War

Polishing the Blades, Battles, and Bosses in Oaklore Keep

A Hero never stops training, and we never stop working to improve what we’ve built. Log in this weekend to see the first round of new improvements designed to help new heroes get the most out of the Oaklore tutorial zone. New and experienced adventurers can battle hordes of skeletons as we bring back the original Undead War!

Oaklore: New Gear, New Polish

Many of the NPCs in Oaklore have had their dialogues and functionality adjusted. This is designed to help new and inexperienced heroes better navigate through the Keep. ALL heroes can (and should!) talk to Stryche inside the Keep. Complete his quest to get the pieces of the GreenGuard Knight set. New heroes never looked so good entering Battleon for the first time! 

Why Return to Early Zones?

In the last (close to) 10 years, we've introduced over 1,000 unique zones, 3,000+ monsters, and almost more gear than a hero can count. With your help, we've had an incredible amount of amazing adventures, and have built a game we are truly proud of. But just like a Hero never stops training, WE never stop working to improve what we’ve built. Join us this weekend, as we introduce changes designed to help new and experienced heroes enjoy the town of Battleon even more! 

Return of the Undead Invasion!

Like the Horc War that returned recently, this war was never meant to go perma-rare, so we are bringing it BACK for everyone to enjoy! /Join WarUndead and talk to Artix to begin battling the army of skeletons. If you're an experienced Hero, tackle the higher level liches for a chance to get runes to enhance the gear from Artix's quests!

Video Game Studio goes ALL IN on Nicolas Cage

A Whole New Era of The Craziest, Meme-iest Adventures is HERE

Recently, we watched a documentary about how Nicolas Cage was almost Superman. It broke our hearts, seeing that movie not happen. We intend to rectify that wrong and center our games around our National Treasure, Nicolas Cage.  

Battleon shall be renamed to City of Angels, and you shall be able to fly, which will be accessible through our new travel system, Con Air. Unless you’re undead, in which case, you’ll just be a Ghost RiderJust don’t Drive Angry.

We realize this may be Inconceivable to those of you looking through the Looking Glass, but you have to put The Trust in us and be sure that no feature will be Left Behind. This is going to be The Best of Times.

Expect new Nicolas Cage classes, like Lord of War, The Wicker Man, MatchStick Men, WindTalkers, and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, which will be released in the Season of the Witch.

For you Undead fans, we’re going to be Bringing out the Dead, because the Vampire’s Kiss will now allow you to get married, and you can have your Honeymoon in Vegas. (Just be careful it’s not The Kiss of Death.)

Just like Peggy Sue Got Married after being Moonstruck while Leaving Las Vegas. You will be able to Face/Off again Amos & Andrew using Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, but you have to do it before it’s Gone in Sixty Seconds.

Next, if you have Time to Kill, you can jump Between Worlds like an Army of One to a land with Fire Birds or to The Frozen Ground.

If you’re Seeking Justice, you can unleash your Rage and Rank Up and become a Bad Lieutenant, like GI Joe‘s Snake Eyes.  

Be sure to tell Your Mom and Dad about this game update, because if they want to get you our new upgrade so you can be a part of The Cotton Club, you can just Pay the Ghost.

We realize this Change may make us an Outcast, like a Valley Girl of the videogame industry, but we are Wild at Heart and our love of Nicolas Cage will last until The Dying of The Light.

Also prepare for Special Musical Guest: Industrial Symphony No. 1: The Dream of the Brokenhearted. (Because God knows, we didn’t know how else to fit that in here!)

NICOLAS CAGE ON!

This Weekend: Double Server Boost

Bug Busters Boost: Get Double XP, Rep, CP, and Gold 

Earlier this week, we investigated and fixed an abusable flaw in the item-stacking system*. With this glitch, any item could break its maximum stack size, which limits how many you can hold at one time.

Why this needed to be fixed: Overstacking items can cause issues for both your account and the servers.

What this means for you: In fixing the glitch, we had to change how items stack in your inventory. Earlier this week, we ran an inventory check and reset the cap for any “over-stacked” equippable, non-consumable items. We did not change overstacked resources (like Legion Tokens or Diamonds). If you had any equippable items that were overstacked, the surplus amount was removed during the bug fix.

"Why do we need max stack sizes for non-equippable items?" That's a very understandable question.

  1. Each item you have in your inventory counts, even if its in a stack. This means that stacking items contribute to the lag factor. 
  2. AQWorlds has a fairly intensive system of loading items, so every single item in each person's inventory also loads for every person in the room.  
  3. Sometimes item stack caps are used to discourage botting. The ultimate, long-term solutions for that problem are to improve botting detection and prevention, and to help players feel a steady, consistent sense of progress towards their goals, to reduce that feeling of "needing to bot." We are working on both. 

We are still reviewing our inventory and item systems; more changes and fixes may occur in the future.

We know many of you put in a lot of time and effort farming your items, so are adding a Double XP, Gold, Rep, and Class Points boost on ALL servers this weekend.

* This is not the same as the bank glitch.

This weekend: Dage vs Laken WAR

Log in for the Seraphic Paladin Saga Finale!

The war for the Legion’s leadership is ON! Laken, leader of the Seraphic Paladins,has issued the ultimate threat: he will use his army to take over Dage the Evil’s Undead Legion and replace it with his Blood Legion. Many suspect he is no longer sane, but more are flocking to his banner.


No matter who you side with, one thing is true: any Legion run by a broken, insane Laken will wreak havoc for everyone. We MUST stop Laken, for his sake and ours.

You have two choices before you:

  • Fight to defend Laken and save him from himself
  • Fight to protect Dage and take Laken down

War Details:

  • Talk to J6 the Bounty Hunter to fight for Laken
  • Talk to Caelgar the Legion Dreadnought to fight for Dage
  • Slay your opponents to gather Medals
  • Turn Medals in to raise the war meter + for a chance to get gear
  • 25% War Meter: unlock more war quests + for a chance to get more gear
  • 75% War Meter: unlock the war chest
  • 100% War Meter: unlock the war boss

The first side to reach 100% will determine the ending of the war for everyone! 

Seraphic War Rares + Rewards

This Friday, find the Seraphic SoulWeaver armor, the Undead Seraphic General armor*, Seraphic Chakram weapons, and an all-new Seraphic Warrior set from Laken in the Featured Gear Shop as we launch the finale of the Laken and Dage Saga!

Completing the war quests will give you a chance to earn the pieces of the Blood Legion Warrior (Laken's side) or the Undead Seraphic Warrior (Dage's side) armor sets. Laken's personal armor will be available as a permanent farming reward after the war ends.

* The Undead Seraphic General's wings are built into the back of the armor and can only be obtained by getting the armor.

Friday the 13th Returns

Classic Horror Movie Mayhelm + Summer Camp + Shrade = AWESOME!

What is undead can never die… Not when there is always another Friday the 13th. Log in on Friday, April 13th to face an abomination straight out of your worst nightmare (or favorite horror movie)... Shrade!

  • WHO: Gypsy Pirate Musician Aurelio Voltaire, the AQWorlds Team + your fellow Heroes
  • WHAT: Fight to survive a night in Camp Gonnagetcha
  • WHEN: Friday the 13th, April 2018
  • WHERE: www.AQ.com

Uncover the Mystery Behind Shrade to Survive

Join Cysero, Memet, and our favorite Gypsy Goth Musician... and Camp Counselor (?!) Aurelio Voltaire for some seriously spooky summer camp shenanigans as we battle through Camp Gonnagetcha! Gear up to fight through the Black Knight and Dark Makai cabins, rock out to Aurelio Voltaire's wicked tracks, and hunt for clues to Shrade's TRUE identity (and to get DEADLY rewards)! 

Those of you who've played through our 3D MMO, AdventureQuest 3D, will recognize this Friday the 13th's main villain: the ambiguously-supernatural hero-hunter, Shrade.

Some of you may /shrug off the threat he poses as just another creepy internet hoax. But this urban legend is no fairy tale. Shrade exists, and this weekend, Aurelio Voltaire is going to prove to you that the threat is REAL. And that what you THINK you know about Shrade is dead wrong.

Your Luck is In: Friday the 13th Rewards

Friday the 13th may be all about bad luck, but not this weekend! We've got three all-new armor sets heading your way:

  • the rare DeathHunter Set from featured Community Artist, Rare
  • the Shadow Cultist, a dark and deadly seasonal set available from this weekend's boss that will make you Scream
  • the BoneSaw Judge, one of the most evil sets you ever Saw,* available from the event merge shop 

* Disclaimer for the members of the Prescriptivist Grammarians Guild: yes, "you ever saw" should be "you've ever seen," but pun > proper grammar in memes, lolcat graphics, and this design notes post.

February Upgrade Bonus Prize Winners Chosen Tomorrow

Back in March of 2017, we started a new upgrade incentive to show our appreciation for all the heroes supporting AdventureQuest Worlds. This year, we're doing the same... with a twist! 

Each month, we will choose FIVE winners from among the list of people who upgraded the previous month. Winners will find a note in their inventory with details on how to contact us with their prize choice. They will get to choose one thing from the following list:

  1. Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness ticket
  2. 5 More bank, inventory, and house spaces (over the cap, if they are already maxed out)
  3. A 20% boost to one weapon of their choice (that they already own)
  4. 2000 AdventureCoins
  5. 1 month membership

And because we know not everyone is able to upgrade every month, we will ALSO choose 1 person from the list of all the everyone who logged in within the last 30 days. They'll receive the same prizes listed above.

Prize FAQ

  1. Only one entry no matter how many times you upgrade. (Upgrades include the 1-12 month upgrade packages and 2000 - 12000 AC packages)
  2. Staff-only/custom items are not eligible
  3. Team members may only donate an item they have legitimately purchased (not gotten for free).
  4. Winners can ask for any item; the list below is just a suggestion. Requests can only be fulfilled if a another account has donated the item. 
  5. If only one donated item is left (example: Great Thief Class) and two players ask for it, the first to email will get the item.
  6. While you can ask for a non-rare, farmable item instead of a rare item, the request can only be granted if another account has donated it.
  7. You can win EIoDA more than once on the same account (if you're very, very lucky)
  8. Eligible items to request include: classes, armors, weapons, capes, helms, pets, houses. Farming resources are not eligible.

If you ask for something that the developers feel may become a problem, they will write back and explain the issue, and ask you to choose another item. 

Where will I see the note? What will it look like?

Winners will see the note in the Miscellaneous Items tab in their inventory. It will look something like this: "January 2018 Golden Ticket"

If I already won the Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness, can I win the Epic one?

Yes, you sure can! (If you're that lucky, we have a couple favors to ask...)

Are there limitations to the boost I can pick?

You can only choose an item (weapon, helm, cape, armor, etc) you currently own. It cannot already have a boost on it.

Available boosts are: Gold, XP, Class Points, Rep, Racial (increased dmg to humans, dragons, etc)

Can an upgraded account win the "log in" prize?

We went back and forth on this. Short answer: no. 
Long answer: The pool of 5 winners is only drawn from people who upgraded in the previous month. If you did not, then you're elgible for the "log in" pool.

We know there are some of you who would love to buy a membership or ACs, but just can't. Real life happens (and so do bills). We want all our free players to have a chance to win awesome prizes like this, too. 

Ultimate Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness

Back in 2012, heroes who spun the Wheel of Doom had a chance to get the Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness. Anyone with the UIoDA could choose one item from a list of items donated by other, SUPER generous heroes. For years, you guys have been asking us to bring back the UIoDA. And now... we HAVE!

The Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness is the exact same thing... only you have a chance to get it by upgrading your account with an AdventureCoin or Membership package. (Or a smaller chance just by logging into the game!)

The list below is a sample of items donated by your fellow AQWorlds heroes. If you log in and find an Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness in your inventory, follow the instructions on it to claim your prize.

Sample list of items

Want something that's not listed above? If you get the Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness, follow the instructions on the item description and ask the team. They'll see if one is available!

Want to Donate Your Items?

Want to donate one of your rare items? Email your username and the list of items you'd like to donate to: DonationHero@battleon.com!

We will contact prospective donators before removing items, so be sure to send the email from an address you check regularly. Once you donate an item, you will no longer be able to buy it back from your Buy Back Shop, so be sure before you say "yes"!

Building a Better Prologue

Swordhaven and ShadowFall Level Up

Return to Swordhaven and Shadowfall this weekend as we rebuild and revitalize two of the most popular areas (and more!) in Lore with a smoother progression and new shop and farming rewards. 

This week's revitalization changes take place in:

  • PortalUndead
  • WarHorc
  • SwordhavenUndead
  • CastleUndead
  • ShadowFall
  • ChaosCrypt
  • Castle
  • Prison
  • ForestChaos

Changes to these areas include...

  • Adding more "Guide Notes" like you see in Robina's text box in Swordhaven Undead, to help new heroes understand where to go next.
  • Updating many NPCs text boxes to help guide new heroes through zones.
  • Adding an Enhancement Shop and instructions to Cleric Dawn, so new heroes have one visible and handy before entering battle.
  • Monster level adjustments, to better match new heroes' levels as they play through the opening areas.
  • Updating item levels in the Chaos Shop: most new heroes are only level 5 when they unlock this. We're adjusting levels give them a few rewards sooner, but also give them a reason to come back to the shop as they level up.
  • Hiding "bonus NPCs" until new heroes have played through the zones at least once. 

Featured Armor Set: Dark Knight of ShadowFall

This weekend, find the Dark Knight of ShadowFall armor in the Featured Gear Shop in your game menu. Buy the armor for 1000 AdventureCoins to unlock the rest of the set for free in Battleon's Curio Shop. (Each of the accessories will cost 0 ACs, so you can store them in your bank for free, forever!) This set will be permanently available.


The set includes:

  • Dark Knight of ShadowFall armor
  • Dark Knight's Blade
  • Dark Knight's Spear
  • Dark Knight's Crested Helm
  • Dark Knight's Helm
  • Evil Horns of the Dark Knight
  • Evil Horns + Locks of the Dark Knight
  • Dark Knight's Hair
  • Dark Knight's Horns
  • Dark Knigh's Face Morph

New Evil Rewards are SO GOOD

Theeeeeeeeey're great! This weekend, complete Empress Gravelyn's daily quest, Inquisitor Inquiry for a chance to get the pieces of the Golden Knight of ShadowFall set. 

Then battle the Undead Giant in /SwordhavenUndead for a chance to get the pieces of the Royal Knight of Swordhaven set!

Each of these sets will be available forever, so if you can't get them this weekend, you've got plenty of time.

2009's Horc War Returns

This weekend, answer Cleric Dawn’s call! The Greenguard Horc tribe has been quiet since 2009… but this week, Dawn needs your help to prevent them from over-running her Portal and reaching BattleOn!

If you were around back in the early days of AQWorlds, you might remember our micro-wars. These zones and their rewards were never intended to go perma-rare, so this week we'll be returning a permanent, static version of the Horc War (and over the next few months, we'll add the rest back in, as well). 

If you're a more experienced Hero, we've got you covered. We've expanded the Horc War map and added increasingly difficult Horc monsters.., including the level 75 General Drox Ironhide. Get the item drops from the Horc Warriors, then battle the higher level mobs for a chance to get runes that will let you increase their damage ranges (and a small boost to gold)!

Why Go Back to Old Zones?

Good question! In the last (close to) 10 years, we've introduced over 1,000 unique zones, 3,000+ monsters, and almost more gear than a hero can count. With your help, we've had an incredible amount of amazing adventures, and have built a game we are truly proud of. But just like a Hero never stops training, WE never stop working to improve what we’ve built. Join us this weekend, as we introduce changes designed to help new and experienced heroes enjoy opening zones of our story and the towns of Swordhaven and Shadowfall.

NEW 2018 Upgrade Bonus Prizes

Upgrade your account for perks... and more!

This year, in addition to the special bonus items you get when you buy a Membership or AdventureCoin package, we are introducing a new upgrade incentive to show our appreciation for all the heroes supporting AdventureQuest Worlds.

Each month, we will choose FIVE winners from among the list of people who upgraded the previous month. Winners will find a note in their inventory with details on how to contact us with their prize choice. They will get to choose one thing from the following list:

  1. Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness ticket
  2. 5 More bank, inventory, and house spaces (over the cap, if they are already maxed out)
  3. A 20% boost to one weapon of their choice (that they already own)
  4. 2000 AdventureCoins
  5. 1 month membership

And because we know not everyone is able to upgrade every month, we will ALSO choose 1 person from the list of all the everyone who logged in within the last 30 days. They'll receive the same prizes listed above.

Prize FAQ

  1. Only one entry no matter how many times you upgrade. (Upgrades include the 1-12 month upgrade packages and 2000 - 12000 AC packages)
  2. Staff-only/custom items are not eligible
  3. Team members may only donate an item they have legitimately purchased (not gotten for free).
  4. Winners can ask for any item; the list below is just a suggestion. Requests can only be fulfilled if a another account has donated the item. 
  5. If only one donated item is left (example: Great Thief Class) and two players ask for it, the first to email will get the item.
  6. While you can ask for a non-rare, farmable item instead of a rare item, the request can only be granted if another account has donated it.
  7. You can win EIoDA more than once on the same account (if you're very, very lucky)
  8. Eligible items to request include: classes, armors, weapons, capes, helms, pets, houses. Farming resources are not eligible.

If you ask for something that the developers feel may become a problem, they will write back and explain the issue, and ask you to choose another item.

Where will I see the note? What will it look like?

Winners will see the note in the Miscellaneous Items tab in their inventory. It will look something like this: "January 2018 Golden Ticket"

If I already won the Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness, can I win the Epic one?

Yes, you sure can! (If you're that lucky, we have a couple favors to ask...)

Are there limitations to the boost I can pick?

You can only choose an item (weapon, helm, cape, armor, etc) you currently own. It cannot already have a boost on it.

Available boosts are: Gold, XP, Class Points, Rep, Racial (increased dmg to humans, dragons, etc)

Can an upgraded account win the "log in" prize?

We went back and forth on this. Short answer: no. 
Long answer: The pool of 5 winners is only drawn from people who upgraded in the previous month. If you did not, then you're elgible for the "log in" pool.

We know there are some of you who would love to buy a membership or ACs, but just can't. Real life happens (and so do bills). We want all our free players to have a chance to win awesome prizes like this, too. 

Ultimate Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness

Back in 2012, heroes who spun the Wheel of Doom had a chance to get the Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness. Anyone with the UIoDA could choose one item from a list of items donated by other, SUPER generous heroes. For years, you guys have been asking us to bring back the UIoDA. And now... we HAVE!

The Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness is the exact same thing... only you have a chance to get it by upgrading your account with an AdventureCoin or Membership package. (Or a smaller chance just by logging into the game!)

The list below is a sample of items donated by your fellow AQWorlds heroes. If you log in and find an Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness in your inventory, follow the instructions on it to claim your prize.

Sample list of items

Want something that's not listed above? Just ask! If you get the Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness, follow the instructions on the item description and ask the team. They'll see if one is available!

Want to Donate Your Items?

Want to donate one of your rare items? Email your username and the list of items you'd like to donate to: DonationHero@battleon.com!

We will contact prospective donators before removing items, so be sure to send the email from an address you check regularly. Once you donate an item, you will no longer be able to buy it back from your Buy Back Shop, so be sure before you say "yes"!
