AQ 3D Combat test!

Upgrade to help us test our FIRST EVER 3D MMO!

This Wednesday, the AQ3D servers will come back online with our first combat test. It will be available on the web for Members/Legends of AdventureQuest Worlds. The server side code has been completely written from the ground up. This combat system is able to do a lot more than the previous incarnation of AQ3D, BUT... this will be an ultra simple test featuring only basic attack. 

free 3D mmo

If you saw my Facebook video post, then you are probably excited to know that Mr. Trolluk is making a return! The new version of town is not ready yet, but we hope you will forgive the art and help us test the basic combat. We will be closely watching network, graphics, and server performance during this test. This is very much the foundation of the game. We hope you will be a part of it.

We Couldn't Do This Without Your Support

There are a ton of great reasons to renew your Membership in AdventureQuest Worlds… but right now the #1 reason is that your upgraded account will also give you PRIORITY ACCESS to the AQ3D Alpha Test... and the test is happening RIGHT NOW! Read all about our new 3D game on Artix's Design Notes at Artix.com!

Zack Storch new book fantasy free mmo

Three million years ago, the planetary system of Za’nar’s connection to the Magic-providing Void Plane was failing. To prevent the disappearance of Za'nar, a Magical Link between it and Earth was created. The Link shares much back and forth between the two systems, including their connection to the Void Plane. 

Now, one year after the War and the establishment of a parliamentary monarchy in Za'nar, Earth is in trouble. Sael Ageis, accomplished Magi of Za'nar, meets earthlings Klyde Vance and Fae, and together they find themselves drawn into a three million year old Magical conflict, unlocking secrets about the human race.

Meet the Magi with Zack

The stars of Za'nar: Impossibility!

Hello, heroes! I’m Zack Storch! You may have seen me in Battleon last year selling my armor, or on TBS’s reality TV show King of the Nerds. I’m very excited to be sharing my story, Za’nar: Impossibility with all of you! With the Za’nar Void Invasion coming up, I wanted to tell you about some of my characters. They’ll be helping you repel Jir’abin’s attack on Lore! You can learn even more about them in the novel, which is available now!

free mmo guest event zack storch sael
Sael Ageis
Dragon-shifting Wizard and co-leader of the Accord

In her nineteen years of life, Sael Ageis has accomplished a lifetime of accolades fighting in arena combat and when monsters organized during the War that threatened the planets of Za’nar one year ago. Her accomplishments during the War, as well as her father Qion’s political history, earned her a position of co-leadership over the newly founded interplanetary government, the Accord. 

Proud, arrogant and stubborn, she can seem closed off at first and speaks with an odd formality, but cares deeply about Za’nar and the people in her life. A well studied Wizard with the rank of Magi, Sael was able to master a ritual of transformation to take on the form of a Dragon for use in interplanetary flight, and invented swift “Combat Runes” to use her icy attacks more quickly.

Klyde Vance
Blade Sorcerer of Earth

An eighteen year old man who met Sael while she was on an investigative assignment to Earth. Imaginative and prone to day dreams, learning that his fantasies of magic and aliens were real came as a welcome shock! After having her bring him to Za’nar, he discovered a knack for Blade Sorcery, or intuitive Magic inspired by the use of weapons and objects as channels.

With a new world opened up to him, he’s found himself questioning if anything is impossible. Now he uses conjured weapons to launch shockwaves, make broils of fire and send waves of water at those who would threaten his friends.

Hyperactive, Flying Earthling Sorcerer

With a difficult past and no family to rely on, Fae found strength in her best friends Klyde and Tyler. Adopting an upbeat personality has helped her overcome her past, while refusing to use her last name helped her be her own self and put her unhealthy parents behind her.

She has an interest in fencing, which helps hone her reflexes. A brilliant chemistry student, Fae is always positive and smiling, and has a large sweet tooth. She always wished Magic existed, so when Klyde and Sael brought her to Za’nar, she was ready to try and learn! Fae is a powerful Sorcerer, and has an affinity for Darkness Magics.

Daz Acer
Theatrical Wizard and Elemental Archer

Orphaned at a young age, Daz was adopted by Sael’s father Qion. Sael and Daz have always been close, and studied together at Reald University for High Magic. Extremely confident in composure, Daz has a flair for the theatrical and often thinks of life as a show. When the two-year monster uprising of the War began, he fought alongside Sael to protect the planets of Za’nar.

With the intuitive ability for Light Magics and Healing from birth, Daz also learned the Wizardry and Runes to fight with Elemental arrows, and be well-rounded with other elements.

Hailing from the small town of Ilis on the heavily forested planet Daram, seventeen year old Rath Halon has simple goals in life: finish school, surpass her father’s social position, have her name recorded in the annals of Magical history for some grand accomplishment or discovery, and become the captain of Vane Rajid’s royal guard--perhaps her goals aren’t so humble!

Rath doesn’t seek an adventurer’s life, but it manages to find her. Expecting to graduate with the rank of Magi at the top of her class, Rath is a very attentive student. She often worries she’s said something wrong and regrets her words, then apologizes or makes an effort to retract them. She fights with her kadjir's, thrown bladed hoops used in Magical ritual that can cloak themselves in Elemental forces like Fire and Lightning.

At thirty-four years old by Earth years, Zail is the provost of Reald University for High Magic. He often moves his hands when he speaks, and finds humor in small things.

In the worlds of Za’nar, there are two main divisions of Mages: Sorcerers and Wizards. Sorcerers cast Magics with their bodies, while Wizards make use of precisely drawn Runes of Void Energy. At Reald University, Zail and his teachers educate students on the principals and Runes of Magic.

Dragon of Darkness

Having lost strength in a mysterious occurrence three-million years ago, Jir’abin resides on the Void Plane, making plans for his return to Za’nar. By creating his Shades and having them gather Inert Presence, or latent Magical worth held in every being, he seeks to regain his lost power to be able to manifest in Za’nar.

Having become obsessed over the years, he’s willing to do anything to accomplish what he not only sees as a noble goal, but a heroic one.

Guest Author Zack Storch

Meet AQWorlds' Own King of the Nerds!

If you weren't with us back in 2014, you missed out on our first in-game meeting with AQWorlds' Zack Storch, during his appearance on season 2 of the hit TBS reality TV show, "King of the Nerds"! He is a really amazing guy, so we dubbed him AQW's "King of the Nerds" and gave everyone a chance to get his armor.

Zack Storch and his cast of characters in AQW

He's had many adventures since then, including finishing his first novel, "Za'nar: Impossibility." After reading an advance copy last year, Artix, the AQW team, and I knew we needed to make an in-game event based on the adventures of the characters.

The Author - Who IS Zack Storch?

Zack Storch is MANY things - author, AE fan, true nerd- but also:

  • 22 years old
  • Has been playing AE games since 2004 (before there were even classes in AQ classic, and buying an item sent you to another webpage...)
  • A contestant on King of the Nerds season 2, where he brought Twilly along for the adventure to help me as his loyal and literal pocket healer 
  • Is an amateur game developer as a hobby
  • Is working on his third novel and publishing this as his first
  • Can be found on Twitter  and on Facebook and his novel website

The Novel - Za'Nar: Impossibility

After working with Zack for the last few months, one this is very clear - he is FULL of ideas, and a very clear vision for the Za'narian story universe. It's filled with magic, mayhem, and magi the likes of which AQWorlds has never seen before! I am still trying to decide which of his characters is my favorite, but you'll be introduced to them all this Friday!

Or you can meet them NOW - "Za'nar: Impossibility" is available on Amazon (for the Kindle), Barnes and Noble (for the Nook), and on Kobo! Read on to find out a bit about the novel!

Three million years ago, the planetary system of Za’nar’s connection to the Magic-providing Void Plane was failing. To prevent the disappearance of Za'nar, a Magical Link between it and Earth was created. The Link shares much back and forth between the two systems, including their connection to the Void Plane. 

Now, one year after the War and the establishment of a parliamentary monarchy in Za'nar, Earth is in trouble.

A Gift for our Honorable Heroes

In AQWorlds, it pays to play nice.

As a way of saying "thanks!" to the 2.5 MILLION AQWorlds heroes who did not get muted or banned in 2014, and as an incentive to keep following the rules in 2015, we are awarding players who helped keep AQWorlds a positive, fun, and family-friendly game!

Thank you, Honorable Heroes!

Starting tomorrow, if you meet the following requirements*, you'll receive 500 FREE AdventureCoins the next time you log into AQWorlds! 

  • Did not receive a 24 hour or longer in-game mute or ban in 2014
  • Logged in between January 1st, 2014 and December 31st, 2014
  • Are level 11 or higher
  • Created your account before January 1st 2015

1/15 update: Please note, the Badge and ACs will not appear until you log in!

2015 Server Changes Incoming!

Last year, I talked about our plans for the server rewrite, and all of the new functionality it would let us do. We had to delay development on the rewrite while Yorumi worked on a number of backend and more immediate projects AQWorlds needed but the team is now at the point where we're ready to go back to it!

This week, Yorumi, Zhoom, Rolith, and I will meet to finalize the plan for Phase 1 of the server rewrite. The entire project will take at least a full year, but we expect to have Phase 1 ready for live-testing (after staff testing) by September. It's a pretty big project, but having the existing server to port TO will speed the process up. We are still looking at serveral months mi

Once we have AQWorlds running on the new servers, then we can start working on the many changes and new functionality ideas you all have told us about! That does include new anti-botting measures, as well as class improvements and bringing back old functionality.

After that meeting, I will post a longer Design Notes explaining in more detail WHY we need the server rewrite, what it will entail, and what changes we can expect to see (including chat filter improvements, less lag, character set save functionality, and more!)

* If you weren't eligible for the Honorable Hero award this year, never fear! We'll be awarding it in future years, too, so you have a chance to do better and follow the rules in 2015!

This Friday: the King is Back!

In-game Guest Author Event with Zack Storch

Zack Storch, long-time player of Artix Entertainment's games and competitor on the King of the Nerds reality TV show, returns to AQWorlds this week a published author! His new book, Za'nar: Impossibility, is available on Amazon now!

Zack Storch new book fantasy free mmoCover art by Dage the Evil

His story tells the tale of an alien world linked to Earth by a shared connection to the Void Plane. When the mages of Za'nar team up with two young Earthlings, they find themselves drawn into a three million year old magical conflict. While fighting to survive, they discover more than just the key to destroying their enemy; they unlock secrets about the nature of the human race.

I got a chance to read the novel last year, and knew right away this was the stuff AQWorlds events are made of! It's got danger, magic, battles, and DRAGONS! It's a really great read, and if you pick it up this weekend, you'll have a great idea of what's in store for Friday's event, because...

AQWorlds event - Za'nar: Void Invasion

In between finishing his book and competing on season 2 of the hit TBS reality TV show, King of the Nerds, (season 3 comes to TBS on January 23rd), he found time to join the AQWorlds team to co-write an in-game event chronicling Jir'abin's attack on OUR world!

2015: A Future of Monsters

Start the 2015 New Year Event Off Early!

Happy 2015... almost! It's about to be a  new year, and that means new battles, quests, and insane boss fights... all on a NEW continent in our NEW main storyline: Ancient Evils! BUT FIRST...

You should battle through our ALL our New Year's events!

2015: A Monstrous Future

With the defeat of the Chanpion of Chaos last summer, the Queen of Monsters has been released from her prison... and she is ready to show our world how little we REALLY know about the nature of monsters! Tonight's release continues the Rise of the WorldBreaker trilogy in the /Northstar map.

Tonight: Battle to reach Karok the Fallen, but FIRST you'll need to face don a mysterious new monster... one HE did not create, but who has been commanded to follow him. Coming FRIDAY, you'll be able to face Karok the Fallen himself! (And have a VERY small chance to get the DarkIce version of his mage armor!)

If we don't want Karok's horde of monsters to join forces with the QUEEN of monsters, it's time to bare our blades and BATTLE ON... or the future will be MONSTROUS!

Old and New Gear for the New Year!

Talk to Quibble Coinbiter in Battleon to get The Fallen Mage Armor with a 15% Class Points bonus! You can also talk to Lim in the NewYear map to access all the returning seasonal rares PLUS find the 2015 New Year's Ball house item in the New Year house shop!

2014: Year of the Horse!

For the 2014 New Year's release, we wanted to take some inspiration from the Chinese zodiac. 2014 is the year of the horse, so naturally this is what we've come up with...

You weren't expecting ponies, were you?

In Norse mythology, Hrimfaxi and Skinfaxi are the steeds of Night and Day, carrying the chariots of the sun and moon across the sky. Their equivalents in Lore are Frostmane and Embermane, and Ulfgar (remember him?) is worried that something is wrong with them. Embermane, the Steed of Day, has gone missing and her brother Frostmane is keeping the land in perpetual darkness. It's up to you to find her so she can bring back the sun - and bring in the new year.

So then, who's that nightmare steed, you ask? Is he what's keeping Embermane from returning to the sky? /Join frostmane to find out!

2013: A New Dawn for a New Year!

Save the sun, Hero, or tomorrow will never come! When a Werepyre petitions the Nocturan Creed, guardians of the night, to ensure he will never be harmed by the light again, you will need to work with the Lumina Votari to protect the sun and save the world! Journey across Lore to ensure that a new dawn - and a New Year - will begin!

2012: Time for Chaos

2012 was the Year of Chaos, and we started the year off with a BANG! Literally! But tonight, you'll go BACK in time to meet Professor Iadoa (Professor Yana, anyone?), a famous Chronomancer who has been missing for decades. He should have stayed gone, though, because now that he's back... it's time for Chaos!

The New Year's ball frozen in place. All clocks have stopped.

2011: The Chaos Continued

Lim has returned to the frozen north to help is close out 2010 with a BANG! Literally.

Well, that's what he INTENDED but once again he can't get his science all in one bucket and he needs your help to stop the ever hungry Icemaster Yeti from munching on this gizmos and doo-dads.

We hope you guys have all had a great holiday. We all took a little time out of insane production schedule to spend some time with our friends and travel hoe to see family, but we are SO READY to get moving on all our plans for 2015!
