Back to Schooling Monsters!
Happy Monday! Some of our fellow heroes have returned to School today (buff those INTELLECT and WISDOM stats, smarty pants!)… but AdventureQuest Worlds has a bunch of monsters that need schooling, too! We have lots to cover in today’s Design Notes… so let’s begin =D
GameStop and Go!
Do you live in the United States and have a GameStop nearby? Do you want to unlock epic features like all the other Legends in AQWorlds? AND you want an exclusive item set to show off your Legendary status and make the noobs jealous? GREAT—and here’s how!
Due to an overwhelming demand, we have extended the exclusive GameStop offer until Sunday, August 25. So when you’re out shopping for back-to-school items, swing by a GameStop and:
- Purchase an Artix Entertainment Game Card
- Return back home with your glorious plastic artifact
- Become a Legend by following these instructions
- Unlock the Combo Breaker Armor Set
- Become the (AQ)World’s greatest Combo Breaker
- Show off your C-c-c-combo Breaking Screen Shots on my Twitter and the AQWorlds Facebook Page!
Get up and go to the GameStop nearest you and become the greatest hero—or villain!—you were destined to become!
Wheel of Doom Coming Soon
Whispers amongst Yulgar’s Inn hint at something called the Wheel of Doom… which is said to award heroes and villains with super-hard-to-obtain items… including some that are no longer available. O____O
Wheely important information about the Wheel of Doom will roll out later today. Stay tuned for more info AND the release date!
Swordhaven is a safe haven to heroes of all levels… but has recently acquired Chaos! This Friday evening, it’s up to YOU and your friends to defend Swordhaven from the Chaorruption seeping in.
Gear up in your favorite Quibble Armor Set, sharpen your Empowered Magus Greatsword, and prepare for the impending Chaos arriving Friday night. And… if my ears haven’t been Chaorrupted… I heard news of Dragon Khan, Legion Raptor, and MAYBE Archfiend DragonRider armors coming to Quibble next week. *crosses fingers*
No Featured Artist Shop on Tuesday
Say WHAAAT? No Featured Artist Shop tomorrow? Yup. It’s true.
All good things must come to an end… but not forever, I assure you! With all of our new exciting developments in the works—Battle Gems, Guilds, Wheel of Doom, DragonCon, and the next Lord of Chaos—you favorite AQW artists are hard at work creating new items for your new adventures.
Tuesday’s Featured Artist Shops will resume in late September, which is only a few weeks away! Who do you think the next Featured Artist will be? Let’s see if you can guess correctly on my Twitter!
Until next time, Battle On hero!

You don’t need a Crystal Ball to see into the future!
Predicting the future is a pretty impressive skill. I just so happen to be pretty good at it, too. And I wish to share my gift with you in the form of sneak-peek Design Notes! Woohoo!
Tomorrow is Tuesday—and I foresee that the Featured Artist Shop will showcase a bounty of items from your favorite Bounty Hunter, J6!
Looks like it’s going to be a Treasure Chest full of Chess! Get ready to pwn some Pawns starting Tuesday afternoon!
Upgrading your account to a Legend Membership comes with a gazillion perks, but the deal hits critical perfection with the GameStop-exclusive Combo Breaker Armor Set!
If you’re living in the United States and have a GameStop nearby, follow these simple steps:
- fuel-up the family Dragon (or minivan, whatever)
- fly on over to a GameStop near you
- pick up an Artix Entertainment Game Card
- fly back home (or teleport, if the option is available)
- Upgrade your Membership following these instructions
- Unlock the Combo Breaker Armor Set
- Become Lore’s greatest C-c-c-combo Breaker!
This special offer is ONLY available until August 11th. Click here for more information!
Wondering where I got my magical capabilities? From the Wizard University of Battleon! And this Friday night, the University doors will open to the DragonRune Hall, the Academy of Mana Manipulation, and SpellCrafting!
Marvel at the magical miracles and buff your SpellScribing tradeskills so you can craft consumable potions. And there will be a special room where you can use J6’s Chess Items in, too! It’s bound to be MAGIC!
Next Week’s Prediction
Looks like Quibble is packing his bags and has a direct flight to Battleon next Friday!
Everyone’s favorite traveling sales-moglin always brings the best rare items with him. And next week is no different—Quibble is stocking his shop with some of the COOLEST items I have ever seen. And you’ll need his epic gear if you hope to defeat the next Chaos Lord who is anxiously awaiting your arrival…
The Bad Guys & Good Battles Contest was such a HUGE hit! We received hundreds of awesome entries and have finally chosen the top winners.
The top winners are posted at Artix.com, but everyone who entered—and wasn’t disqualified—will receive a Loremaster Character Page Badge! All the entries will eventually be added into the Lorepedia =D Thank you so much for helping us track down and record all those Artix Entertainment monsters!
And this is ONLY the beginning. New monsters are popping up all the time, so in the future we will release another Bad Guys & Good Battles Contest for a chance to win more prizes. Sweet for us… but not so sweet for the monsters you defeat =p
Pretty Pink’s Prediction
Wowza! With so much going on, I predict that this week is going to be the best one ever! Actually, that’s no prediction—that’s a FACT!
See you on the battlefield, my hero!
PS: Last month's SUATMR winner chose to remain anonymous, but wound up choosing the Starsword!

It’s time for Chaos!
