AQ:Dragons Changes are Live

Flame Dragon Warrior Package Available in AQW Tonight

Good news - we updated AdventureQuest:Dragons on Google Play and the iOS app store

What's new:

  • Updated to Unity 5
  • Banner ads removed
  • More free keys
  • Krumblor the Cookie Dragon now availale with any purchase

During the update, we had to remove the AQW account linking feature which awarded the Flame Dragon Warrior gear in AQWorlds. Because we did NOT want this set to go perma-rare, we are making it available directly on our upgrade page for the same price as the original AQ:Dragons upgrade package ($9.95 USD) .*

Why did you have to update?

One of the biggest challenges about creating and maintaining mobile games is the way the app stores and software developers are also required to update and maintain their products. That can lead to version conflicts which require updating different components of a game or, like with the most recent changes to AQ:Dragons, significantly overhauling parts of it.

BUT on the plus side, if you didn't have a device which could run AQ:Dragons, you'll be able to unlock the Flame Dragon Warrior set in AQW! 

* As of today, buying the AQW Flame Dragon Warrior package will unlock a unique character page badge. AQ:Dragon Founders will get to keep their exclusive character page badge AND unlock the new badge for free.

Flame Dragon Warrior set + Class

Buying the Flame Dragon Warrior set unlocks the full armor set PLUS the Flame Dragon Warrior CLASS! 

The Flame Dragon Warrior is a VERY powerful class with a skillset that's extremely useful for either boss fights (like taking down dragons), pvp (slaying DragonSlayers) or just everyday use farming (in the Dragon's Lair) .

Flame Dragon Warrior Class Skills

Auto Attack: Pretty basic. 2 second cooldown.
You need to be able to swing around your weapon somehow.

Fire Dragon's Roar: 10 Mana, 4 second cooldown
Blast 3 targets with flame to deal fire damage.
Builds stacks of Dragon's Roar which affects other abilities.

This is the ability you want to keep stacked. Stacking this ability will allow you other skills (Which we will go over) an extra kick to them

Burn Of Akriloth: 25 Mana, 15 second cooldown
Akriloth grants you the power to do a 400% DoT for 10 seconds, with a 25% chance to stun your opponents for 6 seconds with Smothering Smoke, Stacks of Dragon's Roar increase damage.

Yes, all those words and numbers are correct. You can get an extremely high DoT AND do a pretty nifty amount of damage too and even a good chance for stuns. This skill is really good for beating down something (or someone) really quick without hassle. 
Note: The DoT CAN be applied even without stacks of Dragon's Roar, BUT YOU WILL NEED THE STACKS if you wish to do damage as well.

Dragon Strength: 20 Mana, 12 second cooldown
A Moderate Damage Skill.  Applies Ablaze which increases Strength by 25% for 8 seconds. If stacks of Dragon's Roar are present, removes all stacks of Dragon's Roar and applies Extra Defense which reduces all damage taken by 40% for 15 seconds.

Feeling a tad too squishy? Want to buff yourself up like a (small) tank? With stacks of Dragon's Roar, your defense power grows AS WELL as your strength! It's a GREAT thing if you want to survive a few more hits and make sure you can take your opponant down. Goes great with a healer.

Fire Dragon's Scales & Dragon's BloodRank 4 Passives

The magic of dragon scales gives you 30% spell resistance.
The power of dragons blood gives you 30% endurance increase

Neat little passives. Helps you survive more. Not much to say about it.

Burning Rage: 30 Mana, 15 second cooldown

DESTROY with the power of your rage and damage! Also applies a 350% DoT over 8 seconds.
Double the DoTs, double the fun! The fun WILL be doubled with this skill! This is your boomshot, the skill you *wisely* use as you don't wanna waste your mana compltely (I'm bad with mana at times...) Anyways, as well as getting a decent strike off, you also get another DoT just to be more of a bother. Works quite nicely with Dragon's Strength. 

Rank 10 Passive: Dragon's Burn
Increases your DoTs by 30%

Do you like your DoTs? Of course you do. Do you want to make them even better? OF COURSE YOU DO! Similar to Dragon Shinobi's Rank 10 passive, Dragon's Burn will give your DoTs even BIGGER damage ranges! it's a PERMANENT increase!

Overall, you can survive pretty well with the class. Your power can be used for high damage and DoT or tank it out, taking hits from everything that decides to come your way.

BattleGems gets Featured as a BEST NEW GAME!

Frankly speaking... you guys are freaking amazing!

Starting last night, Battle Gems, our brand new mobile game, was featured as a "Best New Game" in the Apple App Store. We are currently in slot #12 -- which is HUGE if you consider there are litterally millions and millions of games on the app store. The reviews from our long time players and from people who have never heard of us before have been overwhelmingly positive. Everyone seems to immediatley notice how much heart and effort we put into the game... even after playing just a few levels you can see the quality, humor and how surprisingly big the game is. We did not hold anything back making this for you... and you are not holding back helping us making Battle Gems one of the top games in mobile. Thank you!

BattleGems is best new game on the Apple App Store
BattleGems has a new website: www.AQBattleGems.com

Android & Bugs Update

The team has been working around the clock the last few days on the iPod Touch 4th Gen crashing bug, and the rare, but equally frustrating Character Data wipe issue. Also, we fixed the error with Dracustien Frankula in the CastlePainya area. We have our fixes in testing now an we will be submitting the fixes to the Apple App store ASAP. Then, completing the port to Android is the next top priority. To all of you Android users, thank you for being so awesome and patient! There are A LOT of different screen sizes and a few "gotchas" porting to Android -- but once these apple bugs are done, we should be able to muscle our way through it. When it does come out for Android, it is going to be even more polished.

NEW BATTLE GEMS VIDEOS!!!!!!
