Plasma Pyro should totally be rare, right?
Yep. It should. It's an awesome set! Each piece of it is made of beautifully rendered flames that flicker and dance across your character's body. And, apparently, cause a lot of lag for a significant portion of our players. Wouldn't be a big deal if this was a rarely-seen set, but when an armor looks this good, of course everyone is going to want it:
Obviously it's freakin' gorgeous, so we don't want to remove it from the game entirely. And we definitely want to give those of you who might have used a slightly-delayed payment method a chance to get this great set. However, we do need to limit the number of people who have it, for lag-management reasons. So the set will remain in game until Friday, at which point it will go rare.
And on the bright side (heh, bright), all of you Arklen fans who bought it will be the proud owners of a very limited, very prestigious set. Good compromise?
PS: the Chaos War rare gear leaves this Friday! Don't miss out on some of this great gear. /join chaoswar to battle the Chaorrupted creatures of Lore!

Hark Arklen’s Story
Arklen’s adventures began 10 years ago when he started playing the original AdventureQuest—it was the only Flash RPG back then! After scoring some animation software, Arklen created a magical floating turtle that shot a blue water blob at its enemies. When Captain Rhubarb and Galanoth caught sight of this reptilian rascal, they invited the intrepid animator to join the Artix Entertainment family.
For as long as he can remember, Arklen always liked drawing. Japanese TV shows made drawing seem a little more accessible, and his immensely more talented friend kept him motivated. Arklen calls himself an Animator first and an Artist second. He’s been focusing on effects animation (hence the Plasma Pyro armor set), but character animation is close behind. To this day, Arklen continues to animate and is leveling up his artist abilities with the help of the AE community!
Not only has Arklen traveled across AdventureQuest Worlds, but also all across the real-world; he’s found artistic inspiration in Poland, London, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco. Arklen also loves raviolis, sweet chili, and spaghetti squash. Douse that with red sauce, and he’s in love. Wash it all down with an almond milkshake and Arklen is in heaven!
Wowie! Arklen sure is a fascinating fellow. And come later this afternoon, you too will be fascinated by Arklen’s fiery items as you Battle On to victory!
