Who is Aranx?
The Archangel Aranx is shrouded in mystery. Not much is known about this Archangel… and he wants to keep it that way! His angelic attributes are expressed through his work and perhaps one day we will discover the past behind Aranx!
Aranx was born and raised in Denmark, and his artistic inspiration came from the beauty of art, cartoons, and the ocean. He is a huge fan Brenton Thwaites and loves to watch Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, and Nikita. Aranx started playing AdventureQuest a long, long time ago, and has worked with AQWorlds as an Assistant Artist for a year and a half now. Aranx’s favorite thing about AE is the art…and with his help, we are able to bestow unsurpassed beauty upon AQWorlds!
Discover your own artistic inspiration with Aranx’s Featured Artist Shop Items arriving later today!

Magical Items and Magical Birthday Wishes!
Happy Tuesday everyone—and a very Happy Birthday to our beautiful, perky, and friendly AQW Artist, Jemini! Today is her special day, and so we’ve dedicated this week’s Featured Artist Showcase Shop to Jemini and all her magical goodies =D
Starting at 5pm EST today, Jemini’s shop will be full of AMAZING “Magical Anime” items to quench your anime thirst. Cat ears, costumes, alpacas, and sparkles await!
When the clock strikes 5pm Server Time, it's time to get your Anime On in Battleon’s Featured Artist Showcase Shop >^.,.^<
Jemini on the Fly
Sorry J6, but Jemini is my favorite Time Traveling Kleptomanic EVAR! Jemini has traversed space and time, collecting awesome artifacts and adorable loot. Throughout her travels, Jemini picked up a message from Korin and landed her spaceship, The Yaris, at the Secret Underground Lab in February 2008.
Jemini has always loved drawing. Disney played a major roll in helping her develop her skills at a young level. And once Jemini found the wonderful world of Anime—especially Sailor Moon!—she really got into drawing people and portraits.
Jemini has contributed her art style to almost every Artix game at one point or another. And now this week’s AQW Featured Artist Shop is dedicated just to her! Jemini can't help herself—she loves Magical Girl anime. She feels like if anyone could deliver this theme to AQW, it would be her!
My thoughts exactly =D
Oh. My. Goodness! Jemini’s Alpaca Pets are magically adorable!
But what’s the story behind Jemini’s Alpaca-infatuation?
A few weeks ago, Jemini took a trip to a local alpaca farm called Golden Spirit Alpaca Ranch. Nestled on 75 acres and home to over 160 Alpacas, Golden Spirit Alpaca Ranch was the perfect place for Jemini to play with…erm, do “research” on… alpacas!
Jemini LOVED her trip to Golden Spirit Alpaca Ranch and just HAD to create an in-game Alpaca Pet for AdventureQuest Worlds. Now that you can have your very own Alpaca, here are some fun facts about Jemini’s favorite furry friends!
- Alpacas are part of the camelid family, most known for the humped camels (also related to in-game Bupers Camels)
- Alpacas come in two varieties: the most popular are “huacaya” (pronounced way-KI-ah) and the other “sure”
- Alpacas live 15 - 20 years
- Their fleece is used for high-end fashion pieces
- Alpacas love to roll in dirt pits
- Alpacas have only one row of teeth—derp!
- Alpacas are quiet docile animals, like Moglins!
If you are in the Tampa Bay area and would like to visit a real-life Alpaca ranch, make an appointment with the super friendly Golden Spirit Alpaca Ranch family! But if you’re too far from Florida, you can always get an Alpaca Pet inside AQWorlds right at your fingertips.
And then get your Anime On in Battleon! Starting at 5pm Server Time!

Begin your Prowl as a Werejaguar!
Tuesday is here—and you know what that means: an all-new Limited Time Featured Artist Showcase Shop has arrived!
This week is dedicated to Mido, local Werejaguar and graphic designer for AdventureQuest Worlds. Mido has just released a ferocious fury of Werejaguar-themed items passed down from his ancient ancestral kin.
Who is Mido?
Artix Entertainment is an equal opportunity employer. We hire all sorts of talent from Bounty Hunters to Mad Weaponsmiths to even… Coffee-Wielding Werejaguars! Mido, former barista and full-time graphic designer, first caught wind of Artix Entertainment when his classmate was playing MechQuest... instead of studying for finals!
After Mido finished school with a Master of Fine Arts in Illustration and a Masters of Arts in Graphic Design, he began his prowl for internships within the video game industry. When he discovered that the local indie gaming company was the same one that produced MechQuest… POUNCE! Mido snagged the internship in April 2010 and became a full-time graphic designer three months later.
Mido’s artistic inspiration comes from years of “studying” video games, cartoons, and comic books. Now all that hard “work” is paying off! Mido enjoys collaborating with a diverse group of people who all share a passion of working hard and playing harder.
Wise words from a wise Werejaguar
Mido would like to share some inspiring words: “Never EVER say ‘I'm not any good’. That's negative thinking. Say ‘I'm working on getting better’ and be proud of how far you've come. Love what you do and show it by never stopping the creative process.”

Well, technically, in the Artist Showcase Shop.
It’s Tuesday! And you know what that means: an all-new limited time Artist Showcase Shop in Battleon!
This week is dedicated to Hizu, our very own volunteer animator for AQW. Hizu has a hoard of Ninja-themed items that will make you stand out of a crowd rather than blend in!
Shinobi Senshi Armor – Rare!
Kaze Cape of Shinobi – Rare!
Inu-ken Battle Pet
Shuang Gou of Shinobi
Dual Doragon Katanas – Rare!
Katana of Meiyo
Gekido of Shinobi
Veil of the Shinobi
Shinobow and Arrows
When you look THAT good, you WANT be seen. Just make sure to buff your Stealth Stats if you wish to pursue the way of the Ninja.
Ever wonder how AQW Monsters learn their attacks? Hizu teaches them! Every week when Hizu isn’t slaying pirates and robots and robo-pirates, that Ninja sneaks into Lore’s monster training camp and animates Monsters with vicious attacks. He’s been hard at work since June 2011—and now you know why those Monsters are so dang difficult! Grrrr!!
Hizu wanted to be an animator/monster attack trainer ever since he feasted his eye* on Samurai Champloo back in 2005. Hizu always wanted to create something that others could see and enjoy, and thus began his vigorous animation conditioning. Hizu’s favorite thing about Artix Entertainment is how accessible our games are for newcomers but insanely deep with thousands of years of lore to tell an endless story.
*Hizu only has one eye! Perhaps he dodged a Ninja Star a second too late?
What is the Artist Showcase Shop?
Every Tuesday**, AQWorlds releases a limited-time Featured Artist Showcase Shop loaded with items that an Artix Entertainment artist creates. Using his or her own style and flair, our wonderful artists create truly amazing Armors, Weapons, Helms, and other Items just for you! But these items are only available for 1 week, replaced the following week by another artist’s items.
**Quibble got a brand-new shipment of items last Tuesday and wanted to showcase his stuff instead! We’ve known that traveling sales Moglin for a long time, so we gave him dibs.
April 25, 2013
That Moglin always has the coolest gear!
Why hello my lovely heroes and villains =D Tomorrow is going to be the best day ever. Why? Not only is it Friday (and Fridays are always awesome, duh), but Quibble Coinbiter is also headed to Battleon! Yippee!
Hey there, Heeeeeeero...!
Who is Quibble?
Quibble Coinbiter is everyone’s favorite sales Moglin who travels far and wide, collecting never-before-seen Items to add to your impressive collection. No one knows if—or when—Quibble’s Items will go permanently Rare, so your best bet is to get all the goodies in his shop just in case it’s the latter!
Do you ally with Good or Evil?
That slick Moglin also has the uncanny knack of showing up right before the next Lord of Chaos strikes… and always seems to know an awful lot about the Chaos Lords, too.
Cryomancer Nax will also have an Ice Skull helm!
No one wants the Lord of Chaos to win (well… except for Drakath, who is all bent out of shape because we wouldn’t make him an in-game Mod), so suiting up in Quibble’s sweet swag is one of your best—and most fashionable!—defenses against the Chaos uprising.
The opposite of Alpha Pirate is... Omega Pirate!
Let’s get real here, folks—Quibble stocks Battleon with epic Armors, Helms, Weapons, and more, but he charges the AQW Team a hefty price. It takes a lot of time, energy, creativity, coffee, and money to craft these amazing items featured in Quibble Coinbiter’s Shop.
Cleric Zorbak just wants to help you heal!
But you can help! Your kind donations in the form of AdventureCoins and Membership purchases go towards helping AQW grow bigger and better every week. We could not have made AQWorlds without your help and support, and any donation made to us is greatly appreciated and continues to make AQW your favorite online MMO!
Become a real life Hero to your friendly AQW Team! Help support us by Upgrading to a Member today and by purchasing an AdventureCoins bundle =D
You guys and girls are awesome, and I look forward to continuing our adventures together! I wouldn’t want anyone else to battle alongside as we defeat the 13 Lord of Chaos! Let’s Battle ON!
April 16, 2013
The start of something epic every week!
Artix Entertainment has so many amazing artists that harness wonderfully unique art talents. The artists of the original AdventureQuest, DragonFable, MechQuest, AQWorlds, EpicDuel, HeroSmash, and OverSoul implement their own artistic flair and style into everything they create for their game.
Wouldn’t it be AWESOME to see an entire AQWorlds Item Set made by one of the Artix Entertainment artists every single week? In some sort of limited-time Artist Showcase Shop? Right in the Game Menu?
YES YES YES!
The Showcase Scoop
Starting today, Tuesday, April 16, and every Tuesday that follows*, AQWorlds will release a special “Limited Time Featured Artist Showcase Shop” loaded with items that an Artix Entertainment artist creates using their own style and flair.
The Limited Time Artist Showcase Shop will feature a complete Item Set made by an Artix Entertainment artist, created in any manner they so choose. This shop encourages our wonderful artists to unleash their creativity and make some truly epic Armors, Weapons, Helms, and other Items for AQWorlds.
And because it’s called the Limited Time Artist Showcase Shop, the artist’s items will run for 1 week (Tuesday until Tuesday) with a new artist’s Showcased Items replacing the previous set.
At least one RARE item will be included in each artist’s showcased shop. All other items in the shop may or may not return at a later date—that’s all up to the artist! The Rare Item will always sell for AdventureCoins (free storage woohoo!) and will ONLY be available during that week.
*We say every Tuesday… and we mean it! We’re ganna keep on releasing new Artist Showcase Shops every Tuesday until we run out of artists… or run out of coffee.
The First Limited Time Artist Showcase Shop
Vokun is the first to be featured in the Limited Time Artist Showcase Shop!
Vokun’s person stash of undead pirate items is guaranteed to shiver the timbers of friends and foes throughout your swashbuckling travels.
- Void Blade of Vokun – RARE!
- Pirate of Vokun Armor
- Vokun’s Pirate Hat
- Vokun’s Pirate Hat Hair
- Plume of the Pirate Wings
The Void Blade of Vokun will be going forever RARE on next Tuesday, April 23, 2013. The Void Blade is selling for 200 AdventureCoins—so get more ACs now if you wanna score this awesome Rare blade!
Who is Vokun?
Legend foretells that Vokun was a Lord of the Forgotten Tombs, guarding its fabled treasures and dark magic. When the Forgotten Tombs collapsed during an earthquake, Vokun locked himself up for a millennium. Now that Vokun has resurfaced, he has harnessed the Tombs’ dark magic, creating a new breed of dark army followers.
In the real world, Vokun is an AQWorlds volunteer artist hailing from the Netherlands. Inspired by the artists of Artix Entertainment, Vokun began his own artistic adventures with Flash less than a year ago. Vokun receives lots of help and positive energy from the Artix gaming community and continues to master his art and style.
Want to thank Vokun for his hard work? Give him a shout out on the Forums!
Now that you know everything about Vokun and the first Limited Time Artist Showcase Shop, get your gear on in the Battleon Game Menu!
PS: Soon you'll see Vokun's NPC in-game permanently! He'll be moving to a room in the Underworld. Look for him (and the shop he'll have there) in the near future.
