Some shops leave and some shops stay!
You'll notice the Spring Limited Time Shop and the Australia Day shop have both left Battleon. But the Dage Deathday shop is still there, so never fear, Legion fans! If you haven't had a chance to earn the requirements for your favorite rare Legion item, you'll have ONE MORE WEEK in which to get them!
(Due to so many people asking nicely for the shop to stay, and because we had an issue with one of our payment sites, we wanted to make sure everyone who wanted to got the chance to get these epic items.)

Magic Thief Guest Author Event!
Join us for a fantastical AQWorlds in-game special event with magical literary guest-star, Sarah Prineas. Meet magicians, thieves, nobility, and misery-monsters as her characters cause Chaos! She's graciously allowed us to write her characters into an all-new story that takes place on Lore.
Meet Pettivox, Bennett, Conn, Rowan, and the Duchess!
What will happen when they arrive, you ask? Warlic, Cysero, Conn – a pickpocket turned wizard – and your Hero will discover that the ley lines which contain Lore’s magic are vulnerable to infection by Chaos. When Drakath uses the nefarious wizard, Pettivox, to infect them, it will be up to you and Conn to save all of the magic (and mages) on Lore!
These are misery eels. They feed on your sadness.
Join us NEXT WEEK for the most magically - and massively - manipulative event yet!

Everyone Can Use A Little More Luck!
Happy Monday, happy peoples!
Just a quick Design Notes to let you know what we're working on this week for both the mid-week and the big Friday release.
Back To Dwarfhold!
For the mid-week we are finally going to open the Dwarfhold Market!
It's been a LONG time since we have visited this area and if you walk to the area pictured above it has ready "Dwarven Market closed pending repairs" for FAR TOO LONG!
This Wednesday, you will get the chance to help make those repairs and get the Dwarven market up and running again!
No deep and dangerous plots this week. Sometimes a hero just needs to take care of business to either help the people out of a jam or serve their own needs. There's nothing wrong about getting your hands dirty doing a little hard work. It won't be easy but that is why they call it HARD WORK.
You will be able to re-open a weapon shop, a dwarven armorer and a hair shop all of which will have new items to sell you (not merge items, just plain old gold shops. Dwarves LOVE them some gold). As always, the mid-week and all of the shops and items unlocked are for AQW Members Only!
This IS one of the locked areas in the Vath storyline so if you have not yet been to the Pines to visit the Inn-ternet or Donna Charmer the llama farmer, then you will need to do those quests first before you head beneath the mountain.
Friday: LUCKY DAY!
It's almost Lucky Day again and that means that the Shamrock Fair is coming to town!
As we do every year we will be adding a brand new fair game to the Shamrock Fair this year, which means another way to earn Golden Tickets to redeem for awesome seasonal rares! AS it is tradition, we will also be adding one or two AC Rares as well that you will never see again.
We are also working on the long awaited Evolved Leprechaun Class. We released Evolved Leprechaun Armor last year (and we will again this year) and the Class will LOOK identical but will operate very differently.
Like the original Leprechaun class this class will also be for everyone, Non-Members and Members alike,.
There will be THREE ways to get the class:
- You will be able to purchase the class for ACs from Mog O'Rahilly in the Shamrock Fair or from Itzachi in Battleon, but only until the Shamrock Fair closes.
- You will be able to EARN it with a combination of Golden Tickets earned from Fair games and some farming quests which Mog O'Rahilly will give you. It won't be easy but if you're dedicated then you will be able to earn the class before the Fair closes.
- If you already have the original Leprechaun class from back in 2009, you will be able to earn it much faster using special quests designed just for you long time players, rare collectors and class fans. Don't worry, the original will only unlock these easier farming quests for you... you will NOT have to trade in your original Leppy.
Please note that this class will be a SEASONAL RARE, it will return every Lucky Day.
I will tell you guys a lot more about this class when I do the Skill Breakdown a little later this week but Evolved Leprechaun is a CRIT based class with lots of skills to buff your Crit CHANCE, as well as some all new skills which will raise your Crit DAMAGE. Rather than doing double damage, your crits might do triple or even quadruple damage and you will be criting often.
It's based on the original class to some degree but each skill is new designed just for this new class. It will work best with LUCK Enh (as it should) and like all modern classes it will have a rank 10 passive.
So, get out your shamrocks, green shirts, horse shoes, rabbit's feet (Ampy, run for yo life) and lucky pennies! It's time to go to the fair!
