Return to Nulgath's Realm

Celebrate the ArchFiend's Birthday this Weekend...

… With an all-new story about one of the most mysterious (and smallest) creatures in Nulgath’s Realm: Polish!  Join us this weekend as we return to the Citadel; battle to save the life (and mind) of a wizard scarred by his escape from the Inquisition so many years ago.

New Birthday Rewards

Many of the artists who work on AQWorlds came from the community, and started their adventures loving Nulgath's art. This year, for his birthday, AQW artist Aranx made two sets to celebrate the ArchFiend's birthday, and we are sharing that with you!

Find the Void Ripper and member-only color custom Dark Ripper in this weekend's event!

Celebrate the ArchFiend's Birthday

Get the Tainted Barbarian Blade of Nulgath Now!

Nulgath the ArchFiend’s birthday is HERE, and this weekend, we're celebrating by releasing a full event with a new story, monsters, rewards, and rare gear. But because today is Nulgath the ArchFiend's real-life level-up, we're adding a special blade based on the Barbarian Blade from OverSoul into AdventureQuest Worlds!

Log in now and head to one of the PTR servers, then /join evilmarshand battle the Evil Elementals in Tercessuinotlim for a chance to get the Tainted Barbarian Blade of Nuglath until January 31st!

Why only on the PTR Server?

Yorumi has some more code updates to the new client he'd like to test, and that requires more load. We're putting this birthday weapon on the PTR servers to encourage more of you guys to log into them and give him the stress he says he needs (though racing to finish the rewrite should be more than enough for him!).

* This map will only be available until January 31st, to help you farm for the weapon.

Find the way... to do the right thing

A $1,000 Donation to Ugandan Orphans on your behalf

On behalf of the entire AdventureQuest Worlds community, we donated 100% of the earnings from the pet released this weekend to a home for orphans in Uganda, the Nafasi Welfare Centre.

 The pet was based on the “can you show us the way?” meme that is soaring in popularity across the internet right now. When players pointed out that not everyone thought it was funny, we strongly felt this was a moment that could turn into a positive win for everyone.

Image copyright Nafasi Welfare Centre

The total value of the AC pets sold came to about $823 USD. So we rounded it up and made a donation of $1,000 on behalf of you and the AQworlds community. Thank you for helping the Nafasi Welfare Centre close in on the finish line of their goal.

We love all of our players, no matter who you are or where you are from. Listening to the community is one of our most powerful strengths-- and with you, we always find the way to do the right thing. Battle on!

PS: Though we said that the pets would be available until this Friday, they are being removed from the shop today. If you got one, good for you!

This Weekend: 7 Deadly Dragons Finale

Enter the Dragon's Boneyard

The dragons of Gluttony, Pride, Sloth, Greed, Lust, Envy, and Wrath have been defeated. But Gorgorath, the Undead Dragon of Wrath, is not finished with us! She waits for us in her lair, deep in the heart of the Dragon Boneyard. On Friday, December 12th, battle to reach her and reclaim the Jewel of the Undying!

Collect the 7 Deadly Keys 

Deep under the town of Battleon, a Draconic Oracle breathes in the fumes of inspiration and divination. He will also direct you to find the Heptagonal Chest. He believes it holds an object that will help you towards your destiny, but cannot be sure. This Friday, the seventh Deadly Key will be available from Gorgorath. Once you have them all, speak to Galanoth to open the chest, and reveal... the Elemental DragonSlayer set and the Mysterious Mana Egg pet!

All of the items inside are 0 AC for free storage. Keep the Mysterious Mana Egg pet to unlock a new adventure later this year! (If you haven't collected all the keys yet, you've got plenty of time to start farming!)

Crulon's Birthday Rares Shop 

Everyone's favorite Prince of the Dunes, Crulon, leveled up in real life this month. Last week, we celebrated his birthday with the Djinn Realm Guardians release. THIS week, he's got a shop full of gear for you! Find the Blood Collector and Prince of the Dunes armor sets in the Featured Gear shop until February 2nd, 2018. 

Show Me Da PETS!

Earlier this week, two of our artists -- Dage and Thyton -- had WEY too much fun mashing up our iconic Twilly NPC/Moglin Healer with a current viral meme. Today, Memet turned their art into in-game pets. Until next Friday, January 19th, find the Shoyu Daway and Daway Ovda Force pets in the Featured Gear shop in your game menu!

The Shop will include:

  • MechFiend Armor Set

Minions of Tercessuoinotlim: Polish's Tale

Deep inside Tercessuinotlim, the realm ruled by Nulgath the ArchFiend, Master of Evil, a small, dark figure stands. His name is Polish, Enchanter of the Light, but his past… is a mystery! We know next to nothing about this strange little man (Creature? Spirit?) that offers to purify your tainted gear.

Prepare yourselves, evil heroes - we'll have new farming gear from Nulgath and Aranx, including new drops on existing farming pets (like Crag & Bamboozle -- that's a preeeeeetty nice spear up there, don't you think?)

Behind the Void Overlord

Nulgath the ArchFiend has worked with Artix Entertainment on and off for years. He was an integral part of creating the original designs for many of our characters and areas. He is currently focusing on a few personal projects (secret!), but came back to work with us on several sets for AQWorlds and HeroMart.

The Void Overlord Evolution is even more special because it was commissioned by one of your fellow heroes, Crab! His input and Nulgath's art have combined into an AMAZING set, and we're excited to offer it to you. (He will be getting the set for free, as our way of saying "thanks for being awesome!")

2018: Year of Revitalization and Enhancements

Zone Revitalization Roadmap

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 a hero never stops training, and WE never stop working to improve AQWorlds. We've released a new update each week (sometimes multiple updates per week) for over 450 weeks. In any area of life, it is much easier to focus on the NEW and the NOW - whatever you are currently working hardest on. That's true for our teams, too. But it's also really important to make time to revisit what we've done before and improve it where we can. 

That's why, each month in 2018, the development team will revisit one of the game's early zones to polish, enhance, and improve what we've created.

The Goal: take the early zones in AQWorlds and polish them until they shine as bright as new.

  • Smooth out quest progression and story flow (you should always know exactly where to go and what to do next)
  • Clean up monster levels and balance, and revise target levels per zone (so you know if the monsters in an area are too high or low for your level)
  • Add new reward drops to monsters, giving experienced heroes a reason to return to earlier areas
  • Other adjustments, changes, fixes, and improvements depending on the zone

We want to make sure all the new heroes joining us each week have as polished and fun an experience as possible, and that we address any outstanding issues lingering in the favorite zones of our long-time, legendary heroes.

Before each revitalization begins, we'll give all our players, old and new, a chance to give targeted, focused feedback on the coming zone. We'll use that input as we map out plans for each area's adjustments, fixes, and improvements. Keep an eye out for where you can submit your Battleon and Greenguard feedback soon.

Revitalization Schedule

January: Battleon + GreenGuard

February: Prologue + Invasion + The Truce

March: Chiral Valley + Dwarfhold

April: Yokai

May: Darkovia

June: Doomwood

July: Friday the 13th (all previous events) 

August: Mirror Realm + the Chaos Twins

September: Talk Like a Pirate Day (all previous events)

October: Mogloween (all previous events)

November: Harvest Fest 

December: Frostval

Important Details

Will the art change? 

We also know that many of you heroes who've been with us since the beginning LOVE the art style of the earlier areas. Do not worry -- we will not be giving these areas a facelift -- the NPCs, monsters, and gear you know and love will stay the way you remember. Our focus with the zone revitalizations is to improve the feel and flow of each area, not overhaul its appearance.

Will this reset progress in the storylines?

No, your progress should not be reset in any of the storylines. 

How deep will these changes go?

The revitalization will be the full focus of the dev team each week, so changes and improvements will go as deep as we can/as needed.

This Weekend: Return to the Sandsea

Crulon, Guardian of the Djinn Realm, summons you!

Long ago, the Guardians of the Djinn Realm fought - and defeated - a powerful evil. But now, the seal binding Gedoz the Malignant has been shattered, and the Realm is once more under attack. This weekend, quest to recover the Guardians’ weapons and answer Crulon’s call to battle!

Crulon is one of the guardians of the Djinn Realm. Or, at least, he WAS. Long ago, the Guardians sacrificed their weapons to defeat an ancient evil. Recently, he's received reports that the evil... has returned! Without the Guardian Weapons, it cannot be stopped.

This weekend, log in and journey to the Djinn Realm to help stop Gedoz the Malignant and unlock out of this world rewards!

Djinn Realm Guardian Armor Sets

After you complete the story, battle to create the Djinn Realm Guardian armor sets shown below! Talk to Crulon to begin his Unseen Essences farming quest. There is a 10% chance to get the merge item resources from the quest, and an additional chance to get even more from each monster you kill!

The easiest way to make sure your hard work gets judged: Read all of the rules before submitting your entry!

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 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, BladeHaven, DragonFable, MechQuest, AdventureQuest, and WarpForce!  If we cannot tell what it is from our games, you will not be qualified.

This Week: Immortal Chronomancer + Quibble Gear

Get your gear before it's gone!

This weekend, talk to Quibble Coinbiter in Battleon this weekend to see all of his new Frostval 2017 rare items, available in his shop and Frostval Collection Chest.  Plus, unlock the Immortal Chronomancer Class and armor set when you buy the Immortality Key from Vinara in Battleon town. 

Quibble's Frostval Rares Update

Last week, Quibble Coinbiter returned to Battleon bearing all-new, icy gear from the past, present, and future. This week, he's back with another bag of goodies for his shop, including the:

  • Ebil Claws armor set
  • Frostfang Paragon Rider bank pet
  • Frostvale ULTRA TopHat

And if you have Quibble's Frostval Collection Chest, you'll find his new gear in your shop automatically this Friday.

Immortal Chronomancer Class

This Friday, unlock the Immortal Chronomancer Class and armor set when you buy the Immortality Key from Vinara in Battleon town*. This is the in-game variant of the Eternal Chronomancer Class, which is unlocked when you get the 2018 Artix Entertainment Calendar from HeroMart

If you purchased the 2018 Calendar from HeroMart, when you log in this weekend, you'll find the Immortal Chronomancer set in your calendar badge shop.

Historically, in-game Calendar Classes were only available when you bought a physical calendar from HeroMart. Last year was the first year we released an in-game variant, due to issues with rising shipping prices and payment provider availability (example: Paypal was no longer accepted in certain countries).

Over the last year, Stryche from HeroMart has worked tirelessly to reduce the cost of international shipping costs, and we are in the process of getting additional payment methods for countries that are currently locked out.

Because of those improvements, this is the last year we will feature an in-game calendar class variant. Next year, we'll go back to having the Calendar Classes as HeroMart-exclusive rewards, as the calendar classes were originally intended to be.

* The 2017 Timelock Key and ShadowStalker of Time gear has been moved from Chronix to Vinara, as well.

This year, Giefury has NEW gifts for you:

  • Frostvale Healer armor
  • Frostvale Mage armor 
  • Silver Frostvale Hat and Locks
  • Frostvale Wand
  • Holiday Flail
  • and the Moglinster Tree pet

* Giefury's name comes from the Old English noun "giefu" for "a giving, gift", which is related to the Old Norse word "giftgipt" meaning "gift; good luck." 

ALL of the seasonal events from previous years will also return - that means you'll get to battle Kezeroth, Quetzal, and more... PLUS get all the holiday seasonal goodies that come with them!

Journey to Frostvale

Once again the Frost Moglins of Frostvale are opening the snow-covered gates of their town to all of Lore as they prepare for the merriest of all of Lore's holidays... Frostval! If this is your first year with AQW then you get to play through all of the previous adventures:

  • Save Frostvale, 
  • Stop the Ice Symbiote infection 
  • Watch a young Empress Gravelyn experience her first Frostval 
  • Fight to survive as Kezeroth and Karok, ice giant brothers from another world, battle to take OURS
  • and get SO MANY presents with the return of Tinsel's Seasonal Frostval Shop

That's all leading up to NEXT WEEK's ALL NEW FROSTVAL ADVENTURE (where we meet an ancient horror with an elder-god sized hunger). You are welcome to all of the great Frostval seasonal rares and the heart-warming Frostval stories.

And don't miss:

  • Quibble Coinbiter's Frostval rares shop
  • Frostval 2017 Collection Chest

Next Friday... It Wakes

Join us for our all-new 2017 Frostval event!

Deep underneath the frozen Northlands, the darkness rumbles. Aboveground, human, yeti, and moglin children play, excited for the coming holiday. Faint sounds of laughter and music filter down through rocks and snow, and an ancient horror stirs. It wakes knowing only one thing… HUNGER.
