TWO New Design Contests!

Become Eternal: Become an AQW NPC!

1 lucky owner of the Eternity Blade will become a permanent NPC in an upcoming release

You’ve always wanted to be an NPC in AQWorlds. You’ve always wanted to govern your own zone. You’ve always wanted to send heroes on challenging quests. And if you have the Eternity Blade, YOU have a chance of becoming an in-game NPC!

The Hunt for the Eternity Blade is on! If you’re Level 30 or higher, speak with Zoshi in the Tower of Doom (/join towerofdoom) and accept his special quest to begin the hunt for the Eternity Blade.

On May 7, 2014, one randomly selected owner of the Eternity Blade will be transformed into an NPC during an upcoming new release. YOU will decide how your NPC will look, and what your NPC does in this zone.

See THIS PAGE for more contest details!

Design Your Own AQW Release!

Yes. You read that right. Alina, Artix, and the whole team wants YOU to create a brand new release in AdventureQuest Worlds! We know you’re super excited—and for good reason too! But you’ll need to follow all the rules for your idea to be eligible. So listen up!!

Playing Pranks Since 2009

We LOVE playing games and pranks!

At Artix Entertainment, we LOVE April Fools Day! Over the years, we've pulled some pretty amazing pranks, like when we...

Didn't pay the "color bill" in 2014!

We were notified that Monochromatic Unlimited, Inc began shutting off AQW's color saturation on April 1st. When you logged in to AQWorlds, all of the players, the game's interface, and many of the starting maps were black and white. 

Made everyone fart all day long in 2013!

Anyone standing still would find themselves with a digestive problem... and if you turned the sound on, you couldn't escape the stinky sounds of April 1st! We also had a gas by adding the Fart Soundboard and leaving the /fart command in permanently!

Let the sound of entertainment soothe you:

THPPPPPPPTTT!!!

Had EbilCorp invade the game in 2012

The nefarious Chairman Platinum (CEO of EbilCorp and Artix Entertainment's most bitter rival) TOOK OVER AQWorlds! We almost lost Cysero, but everyone pulled through just fine... though it looks like the Chairman has friends in Monochromatic Unlimited.

Derped Battleon in 2011

Derp derp derp-derp-a-derp derp! DUUUURRP! Beleen re-drew Battleon! She loves it when she gets to draw —as you can see, this is why Artix and Cysero won’t allow her to draw on a regular basis =D

EVERYONE gets a GOLD NAME in 2010!

Due to a freak bug in the newly released auto-mod tool, which selects certain players to be moderators based on their in-game behaviour... All of the playersin the game were "promoted" to Mod status with a Gold Name! Meanwhile, the auto-mod tool demoted the entire staff! (...including Artix, Cysero, Beleen, J6, Miltonius, Reens and Minimal!

Just kidding! We changed everyone's name to gold so they thought they were in-game moderators!

Redrew Battleon in 2009 to reduce line count

On April 1st, 2009, our players logged to a message informing them that “to save bandwidth costs, we had SLIGHTLY reduced the amount of lines and color in our art. We ARE SURE you won’t even notice!” Then they clicked ok and saw..... Redrawn Battleon!

Crazy Pranks in our Other Games!

In 2014, AQ turned all their NPCs... into BABIES!

In 2011, the original AdventureQuest Let a 7 year old draw the art for an entire event!

In 2010, the original AdventureQuest swapped the genders of their most popular NPCs!

In 2009, DragonFable turned their game upside down, and had players running on the ceiling!

In 2008, DragonFable and MechQuest swapped their game NPCs!

In 2007, DragonFable had giant chickencows invade the entire game!

In 2006, our community staff convinced everyone that they were quitting... and the players exploded! But do not be fooled, because Artix Entertainment is not going ANYWHERE! We may enjoy making games and playing pranks, but we plan to be around for decades to come! 

So. What do you think we'll do NEXT year?

Contest Rules (follow these EXACTLY, or your entry will be disqualified!)

This is the most important part of the whole contest. Read all the rules below BEFORE entering your Battle Gems Fan Art submission. Because if you don’t follow the rules, then you’ll be disqualified, and that is oh-so totally lame.

Follow EACH rule if you want your entry to be considered eligible.

  1. Create Battle Gems-themed Fan Art! You can Draw, Paint, Flash, Photoshop, 3D Print, Sculpt, Bake/Decorate, Comic-strip, Cosplay, or create a Stuffed Animal/Plushie of anything relating to Battle Gems. Get creative here, folks!
  2. Your Battle Gems Fan Art MUST BE created by YOU. And only YOU. No tracing, and no teaming up with friends, sorry. You CAN use in-game art, but get creative with it (don't just copy-paste the image, we know what our art looks like... since we created it lol!)
  3. Your Fan Art entry MUST include your AQW Character Name somewhere on the picture. No name = no chance at winning, and the possibility of someone else stealing your hard work. Please write/sign your AQW Character Name legibly so I can actually read it =)
  4. Also, put the date your entry so no one tries to steal your Fan Art during future contests (because you know some sneaky scoundrel will try)!
  5. Type your AQWorlds Character Name in your Tweet BEFORE submitting. That way, if you win, I can easily copy your Character Name for faster prize awarding and no mistakes.
  6. After following ALL THE RULES above, submit your awesome Battle Gems Fan Art entry to www.twitter.com/AQWcontest

Handy Dandy Checklist

Check off each thing below before submitting your entry to ensure your chance at winning!

  • AQW Character Name *neatly* written on your picture
  • The date on your entry
  • Type your AQW Character name in your Tweet to @AQWcontest

Spoiled Alert!

Pink presents from fellow friends Princess Rissa, Diane Swiftfingers, Jkg082201hero, and Submeobi

Happy Tuesday! And what a glorious day it is! When I arrived to the Secret Underground Lab, two gift boxes greeted me from our fellow AQW heroes!

Beleen pink presents

Ooooh! How exciting! I quickly opened the smallest present and an explosion of glitz and glamor filled my eyes:

Beleen in real life with pink computer mouse

OMG OMG OMG! A Bedazzled Pink Computer Mouse from the 3 sisters, Princess Rissa, Diane Swiftfingers, and Jkg082201hero! Eeeeeee I love it soooo much! Thank you pretty ladies =D

Pink Mouse pets in online game AdventureQuest Worlds

Your kindness (and pinkness!) has touched my heart, and for that, I am creating 2 in-game Sparkling Mouse Pets to show the AQWorld how much you mean to me. Princess Rissa, Diane Swiftfingers, and Jkg082201hero will get these pets free of charge while everyone else can obtain these shimmering squeakies from my shop in Beleen’s Dream Island this Friday =D

Now, on to Submeobi’s gifts!

That huggable adorable pink squid plushie totally belongs in game. I’ll get to work making an in-game pet for you and put it in your inventory =) Everyone else can get the Pink Squid Plushie pet from my shop in Beleen’s Dream Island come Friday. Do you like its eyes, or should I make them button eyes? Let me know on my Twitter!

Be My Valentine?

New Valentine’s Day release next Friday, February 14!

Hello my loves! I have some super exciting news to announce! Next Friday, February 14th, is the lovey-dovey pink-a-licious holiday known as Valentine’s Day. And guess what… Alina, Memet, and Artix (yes, srsly, even him!) are allowing me to have my own PINK zone in AQWorlds for this special occasion!

Beleen Dream Island

Imagine a magical dream island full of EVERYTHING that I cherish: pink sand beaches, Sriracha rivers, chocolate!!!!, balloon animals, heart-shaped landscaping, ADORABLE critters, marshmallows, fortune cookies, and the world’s largest Red Velvet Cake mountain!

Red Velvet Cake Mountain

So now that I’m getting my own zone-sweet-zone, there’s only 1 thing left missing: a Valentine! All the heroes of AQWorlds have a special place in my heart (I wuv you!), but…. I was wondering… *blush* if YOU would like to be my Valentine?

Beleen pink sand beach

BUT there’s a catch! With over 50 million AQW heroes, it’s ganna be WAAY too hard to randomly pick one of you guys or gals. So instead, I’m holding a little competition on Valentine’s Day to see who is worthy of being my Valentine!

Crystalized Cherry

Behold! The Crystalized Cherry atop the Red Velvet Cake Mountain! Whoever is the first to retrieve this legendary cherry (hehe that’s super fun to say!) will be my Valentine =D

But of course there’s going to be ridiculous quests to prove your worth. Would you expect anything less??!? Hahaha!

To: Beleen, From: Secret Admirer

Ooohh!!! What is THIS?! A present from a Secret Admirer? It’s not from Submeobi… so I wonder who?

Beleens present

The tag says, “Do not open until Valentine’s Day.” *looks left* *looks right* *tears open present*

Beleen bull balloon

OMG OMG OMG! It’s a Bull Balloon! A Bulloon! OMG!!! Isn’t he simply adorabull!

I wonder who could have sent him?! Well whoever it is… I hope they reveal themselves on Valentine’s Day!

And I cannot WAIT to see if YOU will be my Valentine!

Totally excited? Me too! Let me hear your thoughts on my Twitter!

New Class: Jouster

Gallop towards victory!

On the fateful day of February 7, 2014, the world’s best MMO is getting a brand new class: the Jouster!

Jouster Class

Jump upon your faithful steed and sprint into battle as you obliterate the opposition with your killer Strength, Endurance, and Dexterity stats.

Obtain the Jouster Class

There are a few ways you can become a super awesome Jouster.

  1. Win the Jouster ARMOR from the Wheel of Doom or the Wheel of Destiny
    1. Type /join doom in the chat bar for Wheel of Doom
    2. Type /join destiny in the chat bar for Wheel of Destiny
  2. Complete Quests with the Jouster Armor to unlock Jouster Class
  3. Win the Jouster CLASS in the Wheel of Doom/Wheel of Destiny
  4. Get the Jouster CLASS in the Wheel of Doom/Destiny Merge shop
  5. Invent a time traveling machine, give Artix Entertainment the rights to patent your invention, get hired by the AQWorlds team, and get the Jouster Class for FREE! (Yes, we're serious) 

Jouster Skills

It takes A LOT of skill to ride (and stay on!) a mechanical steed in the midst of battle. As you level up your Jouster Class, you shall learn the following abilities:

Joust Attack

Joust

Auto Attack

2 second cooldown

A not so basic attack taught to all Jousters. Deals bonus damage on your First Strike... CHAAARGE! Has a chance to stun off balance targets.

 Thrust Attack

14 second cooldown

Deals light damage and for the next 6 seconds your accuracy is greatly increased. If your opponent is already punctured he will begin to bleed for damage over time. Gives your thrust attacks the ability to knock your opponent off balance, greatly reducing their chance to dodge.

Auto Repair

Repairs your mechanical parts restoring a moderate amount of health.

 Passive

Deflection

 Passive

Lance

Rank 10

Passive

Joust attacks have a chance to give you “First Strike” in which for 6 seconds all joust and thrust attacks are as powerful as your first strike.

Jouster arrives 2/7/14!

Assuming you’re reading this today (and not using your prototype time machine), then you can become the Jouster Class starting tomorrow night!

You are a great person and a great hero—and you deserve a Class that’s equally as great! I cannot wait to fight alongside you as Lore’s greatest Jouster!

Battle On!

xoxo Beleen!

Shattered Sunroof Survivor

January 30, 2014

“Breaking” News: Exploding Sunroof

Beleen has an Arch Nemesis… but who?!

Yes. You read that title right. My car’s sunroof EXPLODED after leaving the Secret Underground Lab last night.

Shattered Sunroof Scion tc

No, no. It didn’t BREAK… it spontaneously shattered. For no reason whatsoever. There were no cars ahead of me, and no rocks or other debris hit my Scion that would have caused the sunroof to explode.

Shattered sunroof on Beleen's Scion tc

And it’s a good thing it’s not raining or anything, or else driving to the Toyota Dealership without a roof would be veerrrry difficult…

Rain is 100 percent today

Ah. 100% chance of rain. Well isn’t that LOVELY.

The Suspects

Alright folks. I need your help on this one. Someone APPARENTLY has it out for me, since, you know, shattering sunroofs isn’t a common occurrence. Here’s a list of possible evildoers:

1. Chairman Platinum

Ah yes, the evil CEO of Ebil Corp. Platinum has been the archenemy of Artix since the dawn of AdventureQuest. And 2 years ago, Platinum nearly succeeded in destroying Artix Entertainment. Perhaps he’s at it again… by sabotaging my car with rain-activated-sunroof-exploding-Windex!

Chairman Platinum hates Artix and sunroofs

2. Creepy Cactus Creeper

Meet the Cactus Creeper. This SSSSSUPER annoying thing runs around the Sandsea Oasis, exploding into innocent Bupers Camels. Perhaps a Cactus Creeper found my Scion… as it was traveling 40mph… saw its shiny sunroof… and sssssssss KAAABOOM!

Cactus creeper thats a very nice everything you have there

And the final suspect is…

3. Artix von Krieger

*GASP!* Yes, I’m serious. Artix von Krieger. Everyone knows PINK is the Paladin’s greatest weakness, and Artix, with his glass-window-slaying expertise, could possibly be to blame. And he KNOWS that I’m currently designing an ENTIRE ZONE dedicated to ME for this upcoming Valentine’s Day release. …Granted, I cannot place Artix at the scene of the crime, since he was at the Secret Lab…tweeting me at the time of the incident… um.. yeah… BUT STILL!!!! I’m watchin’ you, Artix. *glare*

Artix window break

The Verdict?

I need your help. Who do YOU think is to blame? Or… do you think it could be someone else?!?!? O_______O

Post your Sunroof-Sabotaging Suspect(s) on my Twitter!

xoxo Beleen and her Scion tC (who has suddenly transformed into a convertible)

Elementals, my dear Watson.

January 22, 2014

Spoiler Alert: Fable Forest

Introducing Elements & Shapeshifting

This Friday, January 24, 2014, marks the day that your favorite MMORPG introduces Elements into the world of Lore. DragonFable’s famous Shapeshifting NPC, Fae, will guide Legendary Heroes into a new elemental zone: Fable Forest.

Fae Fable Forest elemental forest

Fable Forest is home to the Guardian Tree and the 4 fundamental Elements: Water, Fire, Nature, and Wind. Due to Fae’s unique—yet uncontrollable—Shapeshifting abilities, she will randomly change into a DragonFable-inspired Elemental creature during your quests, which will buff your Attack power, decrease your Attack power, or remain neutral.

Elements strong

If you’re fighting Fire Elementals, and Fae changes into a Water Elemental, you will do an Attack Damage increase!

But… if you’re fighting Water Elementals, and Fae sneezes and changes into a Fire Elemental, then you will do less Attack Damage.

Elements weak

Same thing with Nature and Wind: Wind Element is strong against Nature Elementals, and Nature Elementals will do less damage against Wind Elements.

And if Fae changes into an element that’s neither strong nor weak against the Elementals you’re fighting, you’ll do normal Attack Damage. So if Fae turns into a Fire Elemental, and you’re fighting Wind or Nature Elementals, you’ll do normal Attack Damage.

Guardian Tree Elemental Forest

After you help Fae retrieve the 4 fundamental Elements stones, the portal in the Guardian Tree will open, granting you an acquaintance with the Forest Guardian. Here you will uncover Fae’s mysterious past and how she got her Shapeshifting powers!

It’s Elemental, My Dear Watson

This is only the beginning of Elements in AQWorlds. One of the best features in AdventureQuest & DragonFable is Elemental strengths and weaknesses, which we will slowly and carefully implement into AQWorlds. Only 4 Elements are being introduced this week, but if you wanna get a head start at understanding Elements, then keep on reading!

Element Wheel Elemental Strengths Weaknesses

There are 8 Elements total. Moving clockwise, the Elements are STRONG against the next, so Fire beats Ice, Ice beats Wind, Wind beats Nature, etc.

If you move counterclockwise, Elements are WEAK against the previous, so Fire is weak against Water, Water is weak against Energy, Energy is weak against Nature, etc.

There are 2 Unique Elements not contained within the Elemental wheel: Light and Darkness. Light is strong against Darkness, and Darkness is strong against Light

REMEMBER! In Friday’s release, the only Elemental strengths and weaknesses you need to know are:

  • Water is STRONG against Fire
  • Fire is WEAK against Water
  • Wind is STRONG against Nature
  • Nature is WEAK against Wind

Elemental Awesomeness!

Thousands of your fellow Heroes on Twitter and Facebook are teeming with excitement about Elementals. We know the feeling, too! YAAY!

Twitter icon AQWorlds for BeleenFacebook Icon for AQWorlds MMO game

But we also understand that some of you might be worried about Elementals “changing the game too much.” Do not worry, my friend! As stated earlier, we will slowly and carefully implement Elements into the game. And with your help and suggestions, we will take AQWorlds to a whole new (gaming) level!

Defeating Drakath and the Lord of Chaos is still our Number 1 priority, but we wanted to give you a little sneak-peek at what the Team is planning for you. Elements are AWESOME in AQ and DF, and we hope to bask in that awesomeness in the upcoming future with you =)

Feel free to share your thoughts on my Twitter or on the AQWorlds Facebook page, and I look forward to mastering the Elements with you!

Battle on my loves!

xoxo Beleen =D

Ultra Spoilers

January 14, 2014

Spoiler Alert: Ultra Elemental Class

Sneak Peek at the newest Class arriving Friday

Normal is good… Evolved is better… and Ultra is the BEST! The Ultra Elemental Class is arriving this Friday, January 17, 2014. It is the first new class of the New Year, and it is probably the last Class you will EVER want to master!

New Ultra Elemental Class arriving Friday

The Ultra Elemental Class is unlike any other. You must harness each Elemental Orb Cape to prove yourself worthy of becoming the Ultra Elemental. Each Orb Cape offers special boosts when equipped:

  • Water Orb: Class Points boost
    extra damage against Chaos and Elemental monsters
  • Fire Orb: XP boost
    extra damage against Chaos and Elemental monsters
  • Wind Orb: Gold boost, extra damage against Chaos and Elemental monsters
  • Earth Orb: Reputation boost
    extra damage against Chaos and Elemental monsters
  • Energy Orb: Class Points boost
    extra damage against Chaos and Dragon monsters
  • Ice Orb: XP boost
    extra damage against Chaos and Dragon monsters
  • Light Orb: Reputation boost
    extra damage against Chaos and Undead monsters
  • Dark Orb: Gold boost
    extra damage against Chaos and Human monsters

Elemental Orb Capes

AC versions of the capes will be available from Draven Stormbringer in Battleon for AdventureCoins. Legends can quest for some of the Orb Capes (certain levels of Faction Rep will be required) and buy others with gold.

Once all Capes are in your possession, you shall turn them into Draven Stormbringer in Battleon who will grant you access to the Ultra Elemental Class Shop. This shop contains:

  • Ultra Elemental Class: 0 AdventureCoins
  • ALL Elemental Orb Capes: 0 AdventureCoins
  • Exclusive Chaos Orb: ????????

The Ultra Elemental Class is undergoing hardcore skill training at the moment (HA, and I thought CrossFit was challenging!). Due to my sneaky-sneak abilities (and not knowing what "keep this a secret" means), I managed to catch a glimpse of the Ultra Elemental’s Skills before Dumoose chased me off.

  • Elemental Fusion: Strike your opponent with the elements you currently have charged. Different effects based on which elemental magics are combined.
  • Blaze: Deals a burst of fire damage and charges your next Elemental Fusion with Fire Magic.
  • Stoneskin: Reduces all incoming damage for a duration. Charges your next Elemental Fusion with Earth Magic.
  • Chain Lightning: Strike multiple opponents for increasing damage for each jump. Bounces up to 5 times. Charges your next Elemental Fusion with Energy Magic.
  • Command of Darkness (passive): Strength increased by 10%
  • Command of Light (passive): Intellect Increased by 10%
  • Blizzard: All Elemental Fusions have a chance to unleash a fusion of Wind and Ice. The blizzard will lower your opponents haste significantly for 5 seconds.

These skills are subject to change before Friday, so don’t hold everything up there verbatim. I just wanted to share with you what I found because… well… that’s what spoiler alerts are all about!

I know you’re looking forward to mastering the Ultra Elemental Class. So make sure you log in this Friday night to be one of the first Ultra Elementals in Lore!

xoxo Beleen

Candy Cane Saga

A Whole New “Twist” on Candy Canes

What does Frostval mean to you? Is it a time for sharing presents with loved ones? Is it to celebrate the birth of a Level 1 Healer? Is it the time for decadent desserts and bountiful feasts—all with the promise of exercising daily beginning January 1st?

Merry Frostval

To me, Frostval means spreading unconditional holiday cheer, joy, and love to everyone, everywhere! Frostval came early to a group of Special Needs Kids at my former high school. Surrounded by hundreds of balloons (and an entire carafe of coffee), I working into the wee hours of the morning, twisting 55 hand-made balloon candy canes.

Beleen Balloon animal candy cane making

It took me about 3 hours to make 55 balloon candy canes. Talk about super hard work with super soft balloons! But you know what? It was TOTALLY worth it!

Beleen balloon animals candy cane delivery

As soon as I walked into my high school’s cafeteria with my giant Santa’s bag full of calorie-free candy canes, all of the children fell in love with my balloons—and so did the adults, too!

Beleen candy cane balloon animals

These special kids have a special place in my heart. All the warm fuzzies I felt inside me is worth more than anything else—you just cannot put a price on being a good person… with exceptional balloon animal-making skills, at that!

On behalf of all the entire AQWorlds team and all your friends at Artix Entertainment, we wish you a very merry holiday season and a happy new year!

Stay jolly, my friends =D
