The Skyguards patrol the skies looking for signs of danger. After seeing the threat Sepulchure's flying fortress made, Alteon saw fit to create a group of kings that could combat him anywhere.

Greating and the Skyguards

That's where the Skyguards come in—able to go anywhere and attack from anywhere. No evil, no chaos, and no Sky Pirate is safe from the Skyguards!

Our Heroes: AQW Legends

Unlock the Legendary Hero Class when you Upgrade!

Since AdventureQuest Worlds began in 2008, we have always called our upgraded players "Members." That's pretty easy to understand, because they buy memberships to unlock exclusive gear, content, and bonus extras (like server boosts) ... AND help keep the servers running (and the developers fed)!

Get 15% MORE Class Points and REP all weekend!

Without the support they give the game, we would not be able to stay online or allow free players to enjoy the full main storyline and unlimited access to our servers. That's why we keep releasing new gear, storylines, and challenge fights that only they can access.

Unlock exclusive content when you upgrade!

But earlier this year, we stopped and thought to ourselves... "Hunh. All of our other games have AWESOME names for their upgraded players. We should, too!" As one of my Twitter followers put it, "Member sounds like something you become at Sam's Club." And he was right. So a couple months ago, we started preparing to make the change...

From Member to Legend!

From now on, we will begin referring to our upgraded players as Legends. You'll also hear AQW Legends, Legends of Lore, and Legendary Heroes. Why did we make the change? Because you haven't signed up for a book club... you are here to SAVE THE WORLD! And you need a name that reflects that.

Pictured: YOU! Our Legendary Hero!

That's why we created the Legendary Hero Class! Legendary Heroes favor Strength to guard their allies and Endurance to stay alive. Legendary Heroes gain mana when they: Strike an enemy in combat or are struck by an enemy in combat! So you know that no matter what happens in battle, you've got a way to regain the mana you need to demolish your opponents!

How To Get the Legendary Hero Class!

If you currently have an active upgraded account, then talk to Ragnar in Battleon (he's wearing the Class armor!) to open the Legend-Only Legendary Hero Class Shop! NEXT week, anyone who has EVER upgraded their account will find the Legendary Hero badge in their Book of Lore and can access the 0 AC Class AND armor from that shop!

Upgrade from the in-game payment window, on the web, or through the Portal.

Guide to Naming to AQW Heroes!

So... what will all the different types of players be called now?

  • Upgraded players: Legends
  • Upgraded players (active or in the past) and AC purchasers: "our supporters"* 
  • Free players: either "free players" or "heroes"**

* We've used this term since AQW started, and it won't change.
** We will not be using the term "non-Legends"

Thank you, Legends of Lore!

On behalf of the AQWorlds team and the rest of the Artix Entertainment family, I want to thank you for supporting us by purchasing Upgrades and AdventureCoins. I get to go to an AMAZING job each day, working with people who have become more than friends... and it's all because YOU support AQW. 

Fantasy game heroesA.Q.Double-YOU!

We hope you enjoy the Legendary Hero Class (and all the other Legend-only perks!) because we couldn't keep making AQWorlds without your support! We are so grateful you've battled alongside us through the crazy-awesome releases of 2013, and we can't wait to begin the next Chaos Saga with your help!

So get ready for a Chaotic ride, because whispers are flying, and over the coming weeks, the beginning of the end of the Chaos Saga will start. The 12th Chaos Lord is almost ready to strike... and Drakath is keeping a close eye on you, Hero!
