So Much Monday News
We've got a LOT coming up!
RAWR! We are so PUMPED for this month; we've got so many release plans and they all start this Wednesday! So lets get straight to what you guys can expext this week, and then for the rest of the month!
Coming this week:
Everyone's favorite boxing rabbit (at least, we're pretty sure it's a rabbit...) is back with a stash full of seasonal loot and an awesome boss fight! If you haven't joined us for our annual Grenwog event before, here's the breakdown of our Spring-Bunny-Egg themed holiday event:
In honor of Doomwood Pt 2 coming, we've made
the member-only Mini Grenlich pet!
- Egg hunt all over Lore with Cabdury the Bunny
- Backpack of Eggs and Vorpal Bunny pet w/ quests
- Grenwog boss battle
- Member-only Mini Grenlich pet (drops from the Grenwog boss)
- Return of previous years' seasonal rares
- New Grenwog gear like the Grenwog Slayer armor!
Aegis' Member-only Grenwog Slayer armor!
April Pet o' the Month - Armored Battle Lamb!
Careful, it'll bleat you to death baaa-dly! This member-only battle pet looks delicious but is really ferocious!
Great for ramming ewe-r opponents in baaa-ttle!
Also this week:
- Dage is working on some epic new loot for the Treasure Chest drops!
- Solrac is crafting some amazing armors for the Player Suggestion Shop!
- There will be NO mid-week release this week. Sorry guys! Cysero's hard at work on next week's Friday the 13th event with Voltaire!
- The first of FIVE weeks of in-game Artist Livestream events (one artist a week)! Log in on Wednesday at 4pm server time to see J6 draw an all-new item from your suggestions over Twitter!
Leaving this week:
- The Rares shop from The Magic Thief: Chaos in your Veins event leaves tonight!
- Cysero takes AQW back from EbilCorp at some point tomorrow!
- Lucky Fair leaves for another year on April 16th!
- The Limited Quantity Shop leaves Monday, April 9th (or once everything is sold out)!
Zard Rider armors are still in stock, but once they're gone, they're gone FOREVER!
Coming in April:
- Friday the 13th! Voltaire, Deady, and Evil Inter-dimensional Bunnies!
- Doomwood Part 2: The Blinding Light of Destiny! Artix returns to the AQW team to release an expansion to last Summer's blockbuster Doomwood zone!
Doomwood Part 2: Blinding Light of Destiny
will reach out and grab your attention!
- Our next tradeskill will be ALCHEMY! This minigame is a lot more involved than fishing and takes a fair bit of timing and skill to balance the different components. With 16 potion ingredients, you'll be able to create a wide range of extra-effective elixirs, tonics, and draughts! No release date yet, but Dumoose is hard at work!
Magic + Science = Alchemy! (Alina + Lim = BOOM!)
- In case you haven't heard, we've made action figures! Artix and Sepulchure are sitting in the War Room as we speak, and we're preparing to launch them - and their rare BLACK variants - soon! We don't have an exact release date, but as soon as we do, we'll be sure to let you all know!
Don't worry, we're not toying with you. They'll really release!
Artix (normal or black variant) figures come with:
- Paladin's Castle In-game House
- Paladin High Lord Class
- Palaldin High Lord Armor
- Artix's Helm (Legendary item!)
- High Lord's Battleaxe of Destiny
- Paladin High Lord Character Page Achievement
- FIVE original cards to modify your AQW Battle Card deck! (different from Seppy's toy's cards)
Sepulchure (normal or black variant) figures come with:
- DoomKnight's Fortress In-game House
- DoomKnight Overlord Class
- DoomKnight Overlord Armor
- Sepulchure's Helm (Legendary item!)
- Overlord's DoomBlade
- DoomKnight Overlord Character Page Achievement
- FIVE original cards to modify your AQW Battle Card deck! (different from Artix toy's cards)
These will be available in Toys R Us in the United States and on HeroMart shortly after that. I'm sad to say that I STILL have no fixed release date for you, but I keep getting told "Late April, Early May".
Have a great Monday, everyone! The Magic Thief rares will leave later tonight, so get your gear while you can!
