Your imagination went into OVERDRIVE!
You guys really ARE proof that the pencil is mightier than the sword! In numbers, if nothing else. There were 1100+ entries in the Spring Holiday Art Contest, and we think every-bunny did an eggstra-special job!
We had epicly-painted eggs, a live-action cardboard armor for Earth Day, and more frenzied Grenwogs than sakura blossoms on a cherry tree! See all of the winning entries on our Contest Winners page!
Congratulations to Grand Prize winner Ryzhou for his breathtaking image celebrating MechQuest and Chinese New Year!
We hope that all the winners will bask in the punshine of their victories! Thank you to everyone who entered; your boundless creativity continues to astonish us, and we can't wait for the next contest! What theme do YOU think it should have? Tell us on the forum!
1 versus 1 PvP Combat Coming Friday!
It's been a long-requested feature in AQW, A proper way to face your friends in combat one on one. Due to some technical difficulties it's been possible but very taxing on the servers. Thanks to some hard work from the AQW coding team (Minimal & Yorumi) we will be able to offer a very bare bones 1v1 PvP staring this Friday.
bare bones means that it will be basic functionality. You will be able to use /join (like back in the old days) to meet a friend (or foe) in single combat. We are working on a notification systen so you can issue a challenge to anyone anywhere in the game, they can click accept and be transported into the Doomwood Arena with you. That is for the future.
We are also working on 1v1 daily quests that can earn you some all new PvP gear from Dummose. This may or may not make it to the release Friday.
Remember, some classes that are good for fighting monsters are not so great at PvP. Level and Enhancements make a BIG difference in the arena, but mostly it comes down to skill. How well do you know YOUR classes?
It's time to prove yourself.

Spring into fun- Grenwog and Earth Day Seasonal Rares!
That's right, we've got two egg-citing events- Grenwog and Earth Day- returning, and they're chock-full of cheap Marshmallow Cheep pets, Evolved and Regular Berserker Bunny Armors that will drive you bananas, and a pastel basketful of all your favorite gear from last year's events!
Grenwog is an egg-cellent time to go hunting!
Talk to Cabdury (the friendliest, most inedible bunny in town) to access this year's Egg Hunt quests! Collect the eggs hidden around BattleOn and the rest of the town to unlock the Backpack of Eggs and the Vorpal Bunny pet! (Note: Any Vorpal Bunny will be able to access the quests to get this year's regular Berserker Bunny items. Enjoy!)
And once you've collected all those, why not try Cabdury's Treat Hunt to unlock the Evolved Berserker Bunny set? The merge items will drop from the bosses in Greenguard Forest. With an Armor, a Helm, a Spear, and a Long-sword, you'll have a bun-tiful amount of items to choose from! The Evolved Berserker Bunny Armor also requires the drop from the final Vorpal Bunny quest.
Grenwog gear, collect it all! (Or as much as you can carry):
- Evolved Berserker Bunny set!
- Berserker Bunny 11 armor, helm, and longsword!
- Daisy on your back cape!
- Mayflower and Marshmallow Cheep pets!
- Fire Egg Staff, Carrotine Cutter, ChickenCow Club!
- And much more!
Help the scene become more green this Earth Day!
Captain Lore is back again, and it looks like the area is still polluted! Be a hero, join the clean-up crew! With two new quests and a shop FULL of awesome new items, you'll want to reduce, reuse, and recycle as many elementals as you can! Captain Lore's shop will unlock after you do the two new quests.
Green gear to grab up:
- Elemental Orbs Cape
- Earthen Staff!
- Compact Fluorescent Stick!
- Arbor Armor!
- Bucket Head Helm!
- Cardboard Sword!
- And so much more!
The Fear Chaser event is still available!
In the fearsome Fear Chaser event, Ayi Jihu chases down Fears and has asked you to face down Fear Manifestations to save Lore from a terrifying fate! Due to requests made by many enthusiastic fans, the our latest musical event (full of C-major mayhem and frightful foes) will be available to ALL players until next Friday!
