More Goodies in the Tower of Doom

Want to glow in the dark?

On Friday, you collected Monster Trophies in the Tower of Doom to trade for Zoshi's gorgeous Marrowfiend sets. But those sets were based around the look and feel of the top half of the tower. What about all of the people who liked the dark caves of the lower half, filled with glowing stones and fungus?

I got your glowing stones and fungus right here.

To fill this dark void, we've added these two new sets. The Bioluminous gear, worn by the gentleman on the right, can all be purchased from the Monster Hunter merge shop for Monster Trophies, and is available to all players. For those who prefer a fancier look, the glowier (and Legend-only) Bioluminous Amarita set, shown on the right, is available as drops from the bosses in the lower half of the tower.

In the Monster Hunter merge shop:

  • Bioluminous Armor
  • Bioluminous Cloak
  • Bioluminous Hood
  • Bioluminous Mask

Dropping from the bosses:

  • Bioluminous Amarita Armor - drops from Slugbutter
  • Bioluminous Amarita Cloak - drops from Dread Avatar
  • Bioluminous Amarita Hood - drops from Dread Fang
  • Bioluminous Amarita Blades - drops from Dread Warrior

Now Live - Tower of Doom

Battle through 100 Levels of Terror!

What dark and deadly creatures wait at the top and bottom of this death-trap? Battle increasingly-difficult monsters on your way to the top of the Tower of Doom. Then, take on more and more challengers as you fight your way to the lowest level of the Tower! You won't be able to skip any levels in the Tower of Doom, so the only way to reach the last boss is to fight through ALL 100 floors!

Even Creel Wants This Sword.

This dungeon crawl is epic. We've taken a giant spire and filled all 100 floors with every kind of monster we could think of, and then added a boss - all familiar faces to you old-timers! - every 10 levels. The monsters get increasingly difficult as you progress through the tower, so not only is completing this dungeon something to brag about, it's also a great place to farm gold and XP, no matter what level you are.

Hunt for the Eternity Blade - and other awesome loot!

Heroes level 30 or above will be able to unlock a special quest to hunt through the Tower of Doom for the fabulous Eternity Blade! You'll be able to get the quest from Zoshi in the /towerofdoom map. This awesome sword is available to Legends and free players alike, and switches between two looks when you click its hilt. Keep it - in the near future, it will give you a chance to experience the most brutal battle you've EVER seen!

You'll also collect Monster Trophies as you fight through the tower, which you can use to unlock exclusive gear in the Tower of Doom merge shop. To access the shop, just talk to Zoshi in /towerofdoom.


Made from all your monster trophies...

From Beleen To Tendou

As a special "thank you" to Tendou for helping her in such a huge way with contest judging, Beleen has released a special superdeformed "Tendurrr" pet! You can get this cute lil guy as a rare drop from Dark Makai from /nulgath and /tercessuinotlim.

Wolfhound Warrior Set & Fantasty Hero Pass

Unlock all 11 items in the Wolfhound Warrior set with the 12 month upgrade package or choose from the 6 month upgrade, 3 month upgrade, 5000 AdventureCoin, or 12000 AdventureCoin packages for selected items from the set! Or, get the Fantasy Hero Package Pass to unlock ALL the fantasy hero gear with one pass!

Arachnomancer Class Now Live

Be A Web-Slinging Spider-Mage!

Great news for you Arachno-fans! The Arachnomancer class (and gear shop!) is now live! Head to Battleon and talk to Iktomi the Arachnomancer to get the class - and other Arachnomancer gear! If you're a Legend, he'll also have a special, repeatable quest for you that will help you zoom to rank 10 with Ravenloss!

Well, coming NOW actually.

Remember, there are two ways to get it:

  • get to Rank 10 in Ravenloss rep (the Legend-only double rep quest is live now, too!)
  • spend 2000 AdventureCoins to unlock it immediately

Last week, Lore was invaded by ChaosWeavers, and you all fought to protect our land. Tomorrow, we're taking the war to them - we've invading Ravenloss! Fighting in this war is also a great way to get more Ravenloss rep - which means it's also a great way to earn your Arachnomancer gear more quickly!

New, Faster Moglin!

March 25, 2014

New, Faster Servers! And Other Awesomeness.

The server hamsters have faster wheels now.

You may have noticed some changes in the server list! That's because Captain Rhubarb has replaced most of our old, slower servers with newer, faster machines. (In some cases we were even able to merge two servers into one, since the new ones can hold so many people!)

Hammies are enjoying their new turbo wheels.

Hopefully this will reduce lag and other issues, and in general make your time in Lore smoother and more enjoyable. If you notice any improvement, let us know! And if you experience any disconnects or other problems, please report it to the bug tracker at www.artix.com/bugs.

We want to thank all of you for helping us make these improvements happen. We couldn't make important upgrades like this - or keep AQWorlds online - without your support!

Happy Birthday, Galanoth!

We've also got a birthday this week - Galanoth, the Head Dragonslayer of Lore! Head to /lair and talk to Galanoth to crack open his treasure chest of awesome DragonSlayer gear!

Time for some patented Dragonfire Spice Cake!

Birthday gear includes:

  • Prismatic Evolved Dragonslayer armor
  • Prismatic Dragonslayer Helm
  • Golden Dragon Blade
  • Emerald Dragon Blade
  • Legion Dragon Blade
  • Prismatic Dragon Piercer

Arachnomancer Class: coming soon!

Last week, you fought through hordes of Chaosweavers and Dreadspiders. This Friday, you'll battle your way through Ravenloss to confront the Weaver Queen herself. The only thing left to make your 8-legged adventuring experience complete is...

Those legs. Those eyes!

This class is set to release this Friday, but testing on it is going so well, we might even be able to release it early. Keep your fingers crossed - on all 8 arms!

MegaCon Blade: Available Now!

And for those of you who went to MegaCon this past weekend, your reward is now available in game! Just head to /museum and talk to Valencia to turn in your code and receive your Brutal Cam-PAIN Blade!

Some of the items drop only from the new Ultra Yaomo boss, while others drop only off of the original, so you'll need to farm both bosses to get the full set.

Guardian Moglin Spirit

January 31, 2014

Celebrate Yokai's New Year

Battle Through Akiba's Jingshen Forest

During its New Year celebration Yokai's guardian spirits appear in Akiba, bringing with them a ton of seasonal gear and new adventures for Lore's heroes to explore. This year, the ancestral spirit Senlin-Ma has come to Akiba. An ancient being that takes the form of a horselike Kirin, Senlin-Ma has a ton of new quests which will send you into a brand new, unexplored part of Akiba: Jingshen Forest.

Friendlier than he looks.

If you've never heard of Jingshen Forest, that's because it's usually kept hidden - only Yokai's forest spirits are able to see or enter it. But now, those nature spirits have become tainted somehow and Senlin-Ma, needing the help of a hero to find the source of the corruption and eradicate it, has opened the forest to any who can prove they are worthy.

Come Back on Tuesday for High Level Content

Tonight's Yokai New Year release freatures medium-level content that should be easy for most players to complete. Most of our releases are like this because we want all of our players, even the new ones, to be able to enjoy our weekly content. But we also know that this can be frustrating for higher-level players who are tired of being able to one-shot all of the new monsters.

Cuddly, isn't he?

So on Tuesday, we're going to release an expansion to this story. If you are level 50 or higher, you'll be able to unlock some new quests, along with a new part of the map populated with high level monsters! This seemed like the best way to give our high level players more to do while still remaining accessible to the newer ones.

Yokai New Year Gear

Of course, along with Yokai New Year comes a slew of exciting new gear, including sets by Nulgath and Dage! These, along with some returning seasonal items, will be available in game from Senlin-Ma and Panlong.

Wanna fight? Wanna party?

  • Kirin Avatar armor, helm, cape & sai
  • Year of the Horse kirin-themed parade set
  • Nulgath's Dynasty Warrior armor, helm, cape & sword
  • Nulgath's Legendary Horse battlepet
  • Chibi Kirin pet
  • and more!

Happy Birthday, Roroth!

If Yokai New Year wasn't enough reason to celebrate, prepare to /cheer, because the party never stops in Lore! Log in this weekend to see all of Roroth's birthday gear in the Game Menu! 

Birthday gear available until February 8th!

All-Server Bonus Weekend!

Then head into battle, take on a challenge boss (or 3), and complete quests throughout the game to get more EXP, Rep, Class Points, and Gld because all weekend long, we've got an all-server, all-boost bonus going on! Get 15% more from all your battles and quests on Legend servers and 10% more on all other servers!

And don't forget!

  • Get all the info on our new Daily Login Rewards!
  • Find the Yokai Sunlord and Lady set in the Wheels of Doom, Destiny, and their merge shops!
  • Legends can get their two FREE Treasure Chest keys from Twilly this weekend!
  • ALL players get their free spin on the Wheel of Doom or Destiny this weekend!
  • Don't forget to login this Sunday for our special Superbowl gear!
  • And remember to play through the mid-week expansion on Tuesday!

Year of the Moglin

January 30, 2014

Happy New Year!

...Yokai New Year, that is!

Not a whole lot happened for the Year of the Snake in 2013, so for this Yokai New Year we decided to give you guys a new NPC, a new set of quests, and even a new expansion to the seasonal Akiba map! 2014 is the year of the horse, and it's also the year of the element wood, and Akiba's ancestral spirit Senlin-Ma embodies both...

Friendlier than he looks.

Senlin-Ma is the guardian spirit of Akiba's Jingshen Forest. If you've never heard of Jingshen Forest, that's because it's usually kept hidden from the eyes of mortals. But now, something has started to taint the various nature spirits that live within it, and Senlin-Ma needs your help to find the source of the corruption and eradicate it.

New High Level Mid-Week Content!

The Yokai New Year release that goes live on Friday will feature medium-level content that should be easy for most players to complete. Most of our releases are like this because we want all of our players, even the new ones, to be able to enjoy our weekly content. But we also know that this can be frustrating for higher-level players who are tired of being able to one-shot all of the new monsters.

Your new vacation destination.

So on Tuesday, we're going to release an expansion to this story. If you are level 50 or higher, you'll be able to unlock some new quests, along with a new part of the map populated with high level monsters! This seemed like the best way to give our high level players more to do while still remaining accessible to the newer ones.

Yokai New Year Gear

We're also releasing a slew of brand new Yokai New Year gear, including the gorgeous Kirin Avatar set shown below (created by Zoshi)! These, along with the old seasonal items, will be available in game from Senlin-Ma and Panlong.

We heard you like horns.

  • Kirin Avatar armor, helm, cape & sai
  • Yaomo Avatar set
  • Year of the Horse parade set
  • Chibi Kirin Pet
  • 2014 Dragon Dance set
  • 2014 Foo Dog pets
  • and more!

(Dragon) Fabled Forest!

Tonight: The Shifting Shape of Chaos!

Rumors have been spreading across Lore of a chaotic monstrosity hiding deep within the woods. An unpredictable foe that constantly changes its shape. It's up to you to hunt down this new threat and end its reign of terror! This journey will take you deep into the Fabled Forest, which is filled with creatures pulled from Lore's past...

...and also a kitty girl with fluffy ears and a tail.

Some of you may remember Fae - and a lot of the other creatures in this release - from our game DragonFable.* But this is her first appearance in AQWorlds! Fae can't remember much about her past, and she doesn't know where her unusual abilities came from. She needs your help to battle through the Fabled Forest and learn the secrets of her past.

* There are some slight differences in Fae's origin story in AQWorlds and that of DragonFable. When this world was created some things... changed...

Introducing Elemental Resistances!

Since the Fabled Forest is home to a variety of elemental monsters, and since Fae is able to change her elemental alignment when she shapeshifts, it seemed like the perfect time to introduce elemental resistances to AQWorlds! While you're traveling with Fae, she will buff (or nerf...) your damage depending on what kind of elementals you're fighting and what element she's aligned with at the time. You can learn more about how it all works in Beleen's Design Notes post detailing this new system.

Element Wheel Elemental Strengths WeaknessesYou'll be fine! As long as Fae isn't an ice kitty.

Monster gear for Apprentice Shapeshifters!

After you help Fae uncover her mysterious past, you'll be able to buy some awesome shapeshifter-themed gear from Fae's Shapeshifter Shop. You can also collect elemental stones to merge these items into even MORE awesome shapeshifter-themed gear!

Spidery goodness.

Coming Friday: New Loremaster Skill!

Loremaster You!

You've all been to the Librarium - that small room with all the bookshelves where Loremaster Maya hangs out. What you may not have known is that most of those big tomes are actually blank, just waiting for some brave Loremaster to go out and collect the information needed to fill them out. That's where you come in!

Grab yourself a whip and a gun!

As a Loremaster, our intrepid hero (that's you) will go out and conduct research on various creatures (in the form of beating them up until you have the info you need). What you'll be looking for are Unidentified Scrolls, written in a language that no one but the most experienced Loremasters can read. Take them back to Loremaster Maya, and she'll translate then and inscribe the information into the books in the Librarium. Afterwards, you'll be able to open those books and browse your critter collection at your leisure.

Ribbit.

How this thing actually works:

You'll need to talk to Maya at the Librarium to unlock the Loremaster skill. Once it's been unlocked, you'll be able to open the book Creatures of Lore by clicking on a shelf in the Librarium. The Index will show you how many scrolls you've collected so far, as well as how many you still need, like so:

Looks like I have some work to do.

You can click on any entry to visit that scroll's page. If you click on an unidentified scroll, its page will give you clues about what creature you'll need to collect it from - the creature's silhouette, and its scientific name.

Gosh, I wonder what this could be?

Pretty simple, right? The catch, of course, is that not every specimen is going to give you a scroll, so you may have to farm for awhile before you get the one you want. So put together a group of friends and have fun!

Small steps now, bigger ones later.

Right now, there are only a few entries in the Creatures of Lore book. But we'll be adding a lot more in the future - as well as other books that will have you cataloguing different types of things.

Nightmare New Year

2014, Year of the Horse!

For this year's New Year's release, we wanted to take some inspiration from the Chinese zodiac. 2014 is the year of the horse, so naturally this is what we've come up with...

You weren't expecting ponies, were you?

In Norse mythology, Hrimfaxi and Skinfaxi are the steeds of Night and Day, carrying the chariots of the sun and moon across the sky. Their equivalents in Lore are Frostmane and Embermane, and Ulfgar (remember him?) is worried that something is wrong with them. Embermane, the Steed of Day, has gone missing and her brother Frostmane is keeping the land in perpetual darkness. It's up to you to find her so she can bring back the sun - and bring in the new year.

So then, who's that nightmare steed, you ask? Is he what's keeping Embermane from returning to the sky? /Join frostmane to find out!

New Sun and Moon Lorekeeper Gear!

Ulfgar is a renowned Loremaster of Dwarfhold, and after you've helped him solve his horse problem he'll want to show his appreciation! Visit Ulfgar's shop in /frostmane to find sun and moon themed gear such as...

  • Lorekeeper of the Sun armor
  • Lorekeeper of the Moon armor
  • Solar Lorekeeper Hair & Locks
  • Lunar Lorekeeper Hair & Locks
  • Solar Lorekeeper Spear
  • Lunar Lorekeeper Spear
  • and more!

Lorekeeper Style.

Also pictured are the Eternal Revolution Mace and Eternal Revolution Katana, available from the 2014 New Year's Rares shop! And last but not least...

Sir Liest Returns!

That's right, the long-awaited Sir Liest battlepet is here! What a great way to start the new year, right? You can pick Battle Commander Liest up from the Undead Legion Shop. As he is a battle pet, this little guy is Legend-only.

Keep Abreast of Lore's Happenings in 2014!

And don't forget, you can see what we've got coming up next by checking Alina's Dates to Remember in the Design Notes!

The Devastation of Frostfang

Did you think you were done?

The war is over, and the allies of Frostvale have beaten back Dage's army of icy monsters. But has good really prevailed? Even as the good heroes of Lore fought to save Frostval, they were really helping Dage realize his ultimate goal, and unleash...

That's one big dragon.

Unfortunatly, Frostfang is pretty much slaughtering everyone indiscriminately, so regardless of which side you fought on during last week's war, you'll need to take this big guy out. /join darkwinter and talk to Yorumi or Issik to get started!

  • Bleakwind Rogue armor
  • Bleakwind Hood
  • Bleakwind Locks
  • Interfector Blade
