December 16, 2014

The Queen of Monsters' Frostval

The World Breaks as the Ancients Return!

After the Champion of Chaos let the Queen of Monsters loose, refugees from across the world flee to a new continent as the land grows colder and winter storms rage. Fight alongside Syrrus the Astromancer at the shattered Tower of Winds. Build a planetary gate that will allow a mysterious warrior mage's army to journey across spacetime and add their blades to the battle!

The WorldBreaker Rises as twilight falls across the world.

Journey to a NEW continent to begin the introdution to our new storyline, "Ancient Evils," as the Queen of Monsters gathers strength and begins to build the army she'll use to conquer our world! With 35 quests to complete, new lands to explore, and 7 elemental starstones to locate, you've got more do than just save our winter holiday... 

Quibble Coinbiter returns Friday!

Past, present, and future Frostval items freeze the insides of Quibble Coinbiter's pack... and YOUR inventory! AQWorlds' very own time-traveling sales moglin arrives in Battleon this Friday, December 19th, with gear from across space AND time! But he won't be there long, so you'll want to dig through his chest of never-before-seen-slightly-used items and rares while you can!

FrostSpawn Warrior and AstroMancer armor!

Announcing the Coolest Class: CryoMancer!

Just in time for snowstorms, blizzards, and BIG boss battles, we've got the CryoMancer Class arriving this Friday! You can get your winter gloves on this supercool class for 2000 AdventureCoins or through farming for tokens from a Daily Quest. (Members will be able to earn tokens twice as fast!)

  • Cryomancer Class (Earned version, 84 Glacera Tokens)
  • Cryomancer Class (AC version, 2000 ACs)

Cryomancer Class Armor

Once the CryoMancer Class releases, speak to Syrrus Terminer in the Tower of Winds OR talk to Quibble in Battleon! Both will have daily quests that rewards you with Glacera Tokens when you complete them. Non-members can earn up to 14 a week but there is a special Member version of the quest that will reward Members with up to 21 Tokens per week.

MEMBERS: You will only be able to do ONE of the quests per day. MAKE SURE YOU DO THE MEMBER VERSION!

As always there will be an AC version of the class for those who don't have the time to invest in earning the class for free.

Frostval Limited Quantity Packages Next Tuesday!

Starting next Tuesday, December 23rd at 10:30 AM EST, our Frostval Limited Quantity Packages will go on sale! There are a limited number of packages, so if you want to snag these ice-cold collectibles to boost your rare collector rep, read on to see what's coming!

5 Days Until the Invasion

The Wrath of a Dark Queen Event Begins Friday!

ChaosWeavers - deadly, spider-like beasts from below the surface - are flooding into the towns and cities of Lore with only one goal: to prepare the world for the arrival of their Queen! Pierce the web of deceit being spun around you before everyone you know falls to the warriors of Ravenloss!

Crush the ChaosWeavers!

The Weaver Queen has called her ChaosWeavers - deadly, spider-like beasts from below the surface - to WAR... and YOU need to save the world! (It's what you do, being the Hero and all.)

Chaosweavers, Dreadspiders, and Arachsya, OH MY!

If you're not familiar with the ChaosWeavers, they are iconic creatures from DragonFable, and were vital enemies in the SoulWeaver Saga in Ravenloss, one of DF's most popular storylines. This week, you'll face them in Twilight's Edge... and across the world!*

Armors from Ravenloss and Quibble's shop

THIS time around, though, you've got no time to study SoulWeaving. YOU have a nation of very angry, VERY deadly creatures to kill before you seal the portal bringing them to our world! Riadne and Tomix will help you here, then journey with you to Ravenloss itself NEXT week!

* The Legend-only Twilight map will be getting some new quests, rewards, and updated art for the Dreadspider!

Arachnomancer Class NEXT Friday!

Ravenloss is crawling with spiders and spider-type creatures, so it is the PERFECT place to train up your Arachnomancer Class! The Class releases NEXT FRIDAY, and there are several ways you can get it:

  • Rank up your Ravenloss rep
  • Get it 2X faster by completing the Legend-only quests from Riadne
  • Get it right away when you purchase it for 2000 ACs 

Dage is creating the Class art now... expect previews later this week!

Today's Server Boost: Class Points!

Continuing with our Spring Break Server Boosts, we're keeping the double Class Points boost active! 

  • Tomorrow's boost: 25% more Rep
  • Wednesday's boost: 25% more XP
  • Thursday's boost: 25% more Gold
  • Friday's boost: 50% more Rep (start farming that Ravenloss Rep!)

Quibble Coinbiter Arrives Friday!

Quibble Coinbiter is everyone’s favorite sales Moglin, who travels far and wide, collecting never-before-seen items to add to your impressive collection. (How is this possible? Quibble has a connection with a slightly corrupt time-travel fairy who supplies him with items that have not even been created yet.)

Tomix's Judgement Scythe

This week, he'll be bringing the Ascended SoulWeaver armor (with and without extra cape tail), the SoulBinder Armor, Tomix's Judgement Scythe**, Pandora's Rage and Hope Blades**, and more!

** Because Tomix needs to focus on the Ravenloss Part II Saga in DragonFable right now, he cannot come help AQW with the release. He IS sending you some of his favorite DF art to show he'll be there in spirit!

Quibble Coinbiter Returns

Past, present, and future Frostval items freeze the insides of Quibble Coinbiter's pack... and YOUR inventory! AQWorlds' very own time-traveling sales moglin arrives in Battleon tonight, December 20th, but he won't be there long, so you'll want to dig through his chest of never-before-seen-slightly-used items and rares while you can!

Crimson and Emerald Glory Mage Armors

What's a Quibble Coinbiter?

Not exactly sure who Quibble is, or how he gets all that gear? Neither are we! But here's what he said last time I asked:

How do I get never-before-seen used items? Well, that's a trade secret. But just between us, I have a deal with a time travel fairy who brings me these things… even though they have not been built yet! They might show up later in the game or might be Rares that are never seen again!

Frostguard Commander Armor

  • Crimson and Emerald Glory Mage armors
  • Crimsom, Emerald, and Obsidian Helms
  • Crimson and Emerald Star of Glory Staves
  • Frostguard Commander armor and helm
  • Emerald, Crimson, and Gold Frostguard Lances

New Armor News

We've been making additions to some of our armors!

The Lunar Sandknight! Reens will be adding the color-custom code to the rest of the Lunar Sandknight set in Quibble's shop today. She's back in action today, but let's all cast /heal on Reens' household to drive away the Sick!

The armor, helms, sword, and wings will ALL be color-customizable!

Plumes of Paradise Alteration

Over the weekend, we fixed the issue on an armor released in February which made the skirt disappear and left just the bikini bottom showing. We are very careful to release armors which we feel will appeal to the majority of our playerbase while keeping in line with our E-10 rating, but sometimes mistakes and bugs slip in. 

Though the armor looked unbroken (if more revealing than we normally allow) when you review at our other Carnival armors, you see the lower halves of the female armors are much more covered than the Plume armor, having skirts or bottoms which cover their entire lower torso. No other older armors are going to be changed at this time. 

Later today, the sellback price will be raised to the original purchase price. If you do not wish to keep the armor, go ahead and sell it and you'll get all 600 ACs back. If you sold the armor already (after it was changed), we will run a query to give you the difference.

Find the Evolved Chronomancer at HeroMart!

If you haven't seen our new 2014 Artix Entertainment Calendar Poster, head to HeroMart! You'll get the ChronoCommander Class and armor set! AND... later today, we'll also add the Evolved Chronomancer Armor set from Tyronius!

If you already purchased the 2014 Calendar, you'll find this gear in your badge shop in the Book of Lore, along with all of the other in-game items that already came with it!!

Quibble Returns This Friday

Mirror and Chaos Gear for ALL Lore's Heroes!

If you've seen Quibble appear before, you know that his arrival heralds the beginning of the next Chaos Saga... so THIS time around, he's bringing gear from crafted from the very fabric of Chaos itself, and grafted onto our most well-known armors to show that nothing is immune from Chaos!*

Quibble Coinbiter sales moglinWell hello there, Hero. Welcome to my treasure shop!

* Are you ready to meet the 13th Lord of Chaos for the first time?! Then get ready to save Lore from their anarchy! Find Drakath in the heart of the Chaos Realm! Quibble may have more information for you this Friday!

What is a Quibble Coinbiter?

Quibble Coinbiter is everyone’s favorite sales Moglin, who travels far and wide, collecting never-before-seen Items to add to your impressive collection. That's right, his gear has never been seen in the world before, but he sells them used... How is this possible? Quibble has a connection with a slightly corrupt time-travel fairy who supplies him with items that have not even been created yet.**

Will the 13th Lord of Chaos shatter the moon... or just Lore itself?

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!

** Thinking about this should hurt your brain. It hurts mine!

When Does Quibble Coinbiter Arrive?

Quibble will be in the town of Battleon this weekend, selling most of his gear for AdventureCoins! He never stays in one place long and we have no idea when (or if) he will be back. Remember, he is not selling rares, he is selling items you are not even supposed to have!***

The 13th Lord of Chaos can travel in both our world... and the Mirror Realm. So since we're finishing the 2nd Lord of Chaos Saga this week and beginning the final Chaos Lord Saga in just a few weeks, we've got gear from BOTH places! **** 

Friday night, find the following gear in Quibble's shop:

  • Chaos Reaper Armor set
  • Lunar Sandknight armor set
  • Mage of Chaos Armor
  • Rogue of Chaos Armor
  • Warrior of Chaos Armor
  • Healer of Chaos Armor
  • Gear to celebrate Artix's wedding (a once-in-a-lifetime event!)
  • And more!

*** I wonder... if the item's used, but never seen before... is the time travel fairy going to the future after you have discarded the weapon, taking it from you, and then coming BACK in time so Quibble to sell it to you before you ever found it?***

**** O_O

***** I wonder if Drakath has had a word with Quibble's time-travel fairies... O_O!!!

Other AQW news to know!

  • Artix's high-level, high-XP farming map is live! You've got to find it first, though! Our experienced players know to hunt around, clicking on anything and everything!
  • J6's birthday is today! Head to the Hyperium to check out his birthday gear!
  • The 1st place winner for the Luck of the Draw contest will be announced tomorrow! ALL winners will get their prizes in their inventory!
  • The Stack of Fortune Ticket bug should be fixed. Please let us know if it's working for you!
  • Check out the 2014 Artix Calendar AND the Artix Logo T-Shirt on HeroMart.com!

Obrigado for Playing

Feliz dia da Independência, Brasil!

Thanks for your battling alongside us as we fight Chaos in AQWorlds, and congratulations on the anniversary of your Brasilian Independence Day! To make sure ALL our players can share the holiday excitement, we've made the Brasilian Independence Day items available to everyone!

Obrigado Brasil!

There are some awesome Brasil-themed items as well as all of the items from last year!

This year the shop has:

  • Chaos Warrior Macaw +3 pet (does more damage to Chaos monsters!)*
  • Arara Caos Capa pet 
  • Dragao de Independencia 2013 armor
  • Azul Macaw 2013 pet
  • Ouro Macaw 2013 pet
  • Verde Macaw 2013 pet
  • Amarelo Macaw 2013 pet
  • Jubilo Macaw 2013 pet

* Bold items will go rare.

Our FIRST Donation Hero: Moato!

To continue the thanks-giving theme, we'd just like to say OBRIGADO, MOATO!** Because of you, one of our Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness winners from the Wheel of Doom has a shiny-but-slightly-used Dark Caster armor!

Who IS this generous Donation Hero?

Her name is Moato, and she is AWESOME! To let another player experience the fun of battling through Lore as a Dark Caster, she donated her armor to the Wheel of Doom!

 Moato: you are OUR hero!

When her donation email was randomly selected from those who had donated the Dark Caster armor, we contacted her directly to confirm she still wanted to donate the gear. After she replied back, we removed it directly from HER inventory and gave it to another player. That is true generosity!

** Let's all sing now, "obrigado moato, mr. roboto"

We asked Moato over email how she found out about AQWorlds:

A friend of our played a game call Adventure Quest(first time hearing it on fact), and I went to the website and made an account and loved it. Then I saw MechQuest, DragonFable, and soon made accounts of those, and soon upgraded with them. But anyway, I saw WarpForce on the side and tried that out, and also saw this game. Again made an account in 2009 and haven't really stopped playing it(except when I'm playing EpicDuel, or other games). And THEN I saw the Design Notes about the wheel and donating stuff.

What is a Donation Hero?

We've got a LOT of people who want to donate rares to the Wheel of Doom. You guys are CRAZY-generous! To do that, please send an email to DonationHero@battleon.com with your account name and the list of item/s you'd like to donate.

One Hero's Treasure can be another Hero's Treasure... but only in the Wheel of Doom!

We will only contact prospective donators before removing items, so be sure to send the email from an address you check regularly. 

Talk Like a Pirate Day/Friday the 13th Crossover!

This Friday, Voltaire returns with a ship full of booty and a hunger for MORE LOOT in our Friday the 13th/Talk Like a Pirate Day crossover event! Flashback to the 1st Voltaire event from 2009 as we head back onto a pirate ship to explore parts unknown! 

Yarrrr
Shiver me timbers... it's Friday the 13th soon!

With creepy undead sailors, a ship that will take you from sunny shores to the depths of the ocean (or despair), and an undead sea-beast that just wants a HUG (that's all, we promise!), you'll want to make sure you've brushed up on your pirate lingo and have your biggest undead-slaying blade on hand!

Quibble's Swordhaven Shop leaves Monday!

Quibble Coinbiter's Swordhaven shop has been around for a while, and if Quib's going to have enough time to gather his Talk Like a Pirate Day gear from his time-travel fairy connection, he's going to need to leave soon! 

Galactic Naval Commander

Galactic Naval Commander: Yarrrr for the stars!

This Monday night, September 9th, he'll leave for parts and times unknown, but he WILL be back on Thursday, September 19th, with a shop full of piratey gear to make you /cheer!

Friday: Ride the Chaos

Ride into Battle Against Chaos in Swordhaven!

Someone - or someONES - are making sure that NO ONE in Swordhaven can ignore the peril they are in. As Chaorrupted creatures begin to invade, King Alteon will need YOU to command the defense of the city. 

Chaos attacksChaos vs King vs Hero

Talk to Denara, Royal Archivist, to gain the knowledge you need to defend the city, then head into the sewers to investigate one of the main sources of Swordhaven's infection.

Battle Chaos Bandits, Chaos Spy-Eyes (with NEW attacks from Arklen!), and descend into the creepily-Chaorrupted depths of Swordhaven's ancient, abandoned sewer system to take on the virulent Sludgelord!

Quibble's Final Swordhaven Update

As the AE team rides into Dragon*Con tomorrow, YOU can ride into battle against Chaos this Friday atop a Raptor or a Yokai Battle-dragon! Talk to Quibble in Battleon to get your own Raptor Rider, DragonKhan Rider, and (if Nulgath can harness the dark power to stop time) ArchFiend Dragon Rider!

Raptor Rider

  • Raptor Rider
  • Raptor Skull Helm
  • Flaming Raptor Helm
  • Horned Raptor Helm
  • Raptor Rider Hood
  • Raptor Commander Lance

Monday Diary

So much fun all week long!

Dear hero, it’s Monday again! And that means it’s time for another Monday Write Up. Allow me to highlight all the fun happening this week in the world’s favorite online adventure game, AdventureQuest Worlds!

Tuesday’s Featured Artist Shop

For the past few months, we have seen the amazing artistic abilities of AQWorlds’ artists in the Featured Artist Showcase Shop. Last week we were blessed with Ven du Viioletmist’s special items, including the Rare Knight of the Leviasea Armor set.

Knight of the Leviasea Armor Set

Come tomorrow afternoon, Ven’s shop will disappear to make room for our newest volunteer artist, Roroth! This Drow artist will showcase elite armors, helms, weapons, and more from his personal stash of Drow-exclusive items.

Sneak Peek at Roroth's Featured Artist Showcase Shop Items

I have the pleasure of meeting with Roroth later on this evening at the local AdventureBucks Coffee shop. Since not much is known about Roroth, I thought I could get him to tell me all his Drow secrets in exchange for a Venti Trobblechino! Mmmmm!

AdventureBucks Coffee

I will fill you in all the details in tomorrow Design Notes post… as soon as I finish my Trobblechino, that is =D

Friday’s Shadow Sorcerer Armor Set

Running low on AdventureCoins? They say that 2 things are better than 1… so how epic are 12 things in 1 sweet deal?!

Shadow Sorcerer Set

Quibble knows you need the best gear to defeat the next Lord of Chaos, so he specially ordered brand new weapons, armors, and helms just for you and your friends. With Quibble’s items at your side (and in your grasp), head to Swordhaven to celebrate the kingdom’s brand new redesign! But with Chaos ready to crash the celebration, it will be up to you to save the day.

Drakath and Quibble are Back!

Quibble Coinbiter Arrives in Battleon!

Head to Battleon to find Quibble Coinbiter and his shop full of Good, Evil, and Chaos gear! Hear his rumors of the 12th Lord of Chaos, then /join chaoswar to take on Drakath's army of Chaorrupted creatures as they attack across Lore! 

Drakath wants YOU... to fall to Chaos!

Quibble Coinbiter: Vital Info

Quibble is everyone’s favorite traveling sales Moglin, collecting never-before-seen items to add to your inventory! His connection with a slightly corrupt time-travel fairy lets him gear that hasn't even been created yet!

Shadowmage AssassinThe Shadowmages Assassin wield dark power!

He'll be in Battleon all week long, and will receive some new gear NEXT Friday, too! He never stays in one place long and we have no idea when (or if) he will be back. If he DOES come back, it will be with new items, though... if the wheel of fortune spins in your favor, someday you MAY see some of the items return!

Royal Battlemage set
The Royal Battlemage battles to honor King Alteon

What Will Quibble Coinbiter Bring?

If you've seen Quibble appear before, you know that his arrival heralds the beginning of the next Chaos Saga... soTHIS time around, he's bringing gear from crafted in honor of your favorite people: King Alteon and Empress Gravelyn

The Spellswords of Good, Evil, and Chaos!

Will YOU Drive Back the Chaos Attacks?

Slay the Chaorrupted creatures invading the cities and towns across Lore... before they cause so much Chaos there's no Lore left to defend! Things have been too quiet for Drakath, Champion of Chaos, so he loosed his Chaos minions and they're free to play games with your mind... and wreak havoc on your world!

Shadowfall ChampionStop them as a Shadowfall Champion!

Wasn't This a War Before?

The war against Chaos is NEVER over! But you're right, this WAS a chaos war the first time it appeared in-game. To prevent lag spikes caused by how MANY people were fighting in the war, we removed it for a time. 

Chaorrupted Gorillaphants go ape for heroes to slay!

We've brought the release back, but this time it is a static war, which means that YOU are the only one fighting it. Only your battles will count towards the progression of your war meter. All of the shops have returned, as well. The rare gear in the Lore's Defender shop will leave permanently in two weeks.

Chaos Boss Challenge!!

Once you've quested through all of the lands being attacked AND taken down the Chaos Knight, you can access the /chaosboss map for a Ultra Chaos Warrior challenge battle! Defeat him to unlock a brand-new cutscene with your favorite two-faced villains!

Unexpected Chaos War Items!

And to make sure you NEVER rely on the things you encounter when facing Chaos monsters, Drakath instructed his war boss to reward you with the Chaorrupter Blade*, which deals EXTRA DAMAGE to Chaos creatures, if you defeat him!

I'd wish you Good Knight, but these were Chaorrupted.

Versions of the Chaorrupter Blade

  • Free-player version drops from the boss monster!
  • Member and AC versions of the blade will have a higher Damage rate 
  • Member and AC versions of the blade will be sold in the war camp shop
  • When the final confrontation against Drakath comes, having the weapon WILL change how your battle against him works!
    (Can't tell you how yet, the Clerics of Order have not yet deciphered the secret scrolls.)

Royal Battle mage Honor Alteon, Battlemage and King of Swordhaven!

Mondays are fun days!

August 05, 2013

Marvelous Monday Meeting!

Get a head start on the week and discover all the exciting (and chaotic) things arriving this weekend.

Happy Monday! Usually Mondays are the most dreaded day of the week—unless you play AdventureQuest Worlds, because Mondays are full of surprises and spoilers on the Design Notes!

Beleen loves surprises in AdventureQuest Worlds

Allow me to make your Monday memorable by delivering your daily dose of sneak peeks. Let’s begin!

Tuesday’s Featured Artist Shop

Tomorrow is another Featured Artist Showcase Shop! We have seen the stunning skills of J6, Solrac, Aranx, Tyronius, Diozz, Beleen, Aegis, Dage, Jemini, Nulgath, Mido, Hizu, Memet, and Vokun! 

Artist Showcase Shop online adventure games

And this week, the entire (AQ)world will get to enjoy the artistic talents of Ven du Violetmist! Ven, who hails from the mysterious lands of Leviasea, has crafted beautifully ornate—and devastating—items for her Featured Artist Shop.

Ven du Violetmist NPC

Since I have NO IDEA where Leviasea is, Ven has agreed to meet me for a cup of coffee so I can learn more about her and hometown of Leviasea. Oh and of course snag some sweet photos of Ven’s showcased items. How exciting!

Quibble is on his Way

Everyone loves Quibble Coinbiter. He’s your friendly traveling sales moglin who always has the BEST and RAREST items in his magical treasure chest. And he’s headed to Battleon this Friday evening!

Sneak peek of Quibble's new items

Sure, Quibble brings sweet loot for a price, but he also brings priceless knowledge about the next Chaos Lord. And speaking of Chaos…

The Chaos War Ensues Friday!

A famous warrior by the name of Napoleon Bonaparte once said, “The battlefield is a scene of constant chaos. The winner will be the one who controls that chaos, both his own and the enemies.”

Napoleon Bonaparte in online game AdventureQuest Worlds

As we gear up for the beginning of the 12th Chaos Lord, the Chaos War returns. Drakath is sending his minions across the world, stirring up trouble and lending a hand when trouble becomes too much for people.

Heed Napoleon Bonapart’s words and storm headstrong into the Chaos War. Chaos ensues Friday at sundown!

And now, heed my words and return to battle in your favorite online adventure game AdventureQuest Worlds!

xoxo Beleen =D

Excited!

June 04, 2013

All Eyes on Dage!

Featured Artist Shop, the Femme Fatalities Cult, and Quibble bids farewell

Happy Tuesday! Everyone knows I’m easily excited by the smallest of things: a free cup of coffee, a pretty pink balloon, hugs from my Artix coworkers, fortune cookies, and getting the last bottle of Propel Water (Strawberry Kiwi of course!).

But you know what makes me EVEN MORE excited?!

Tuesday’s Featured Artist Showcase Shop!

Limited Time Featured Artist Showcase Shop in free to play fantasy games

Every Tuesday, a new Artist takes the spotlight, showcasing their personal armors, weapons, helms, and other items using their unique artistic flair. Jemini was last week’s Featured Artist, filling her shop with Magical Anime armors and hairstyles.

Jemini's Magical Anime characters in flash games

Bright sparkles, happy faces, and magical alpacas tickled the fancy of thousands—but there is one boy who despises all of that. In fact, this particular guy has made a career out of the dark, devious, and demented: Dage the Evil!

Dage the Evil Artist Showcase Shop today in kids games online

And later this evening, Dage the Evil will unleash his personal stash of epic Undead Legion items for his devoted followers of Lore! All of Dage’s items will be RARE, and a good portion of them will be Member Only or require AdventureCoins.

Dage the Evil's Oathkeeper Armor Set

The sole reason AQWorlds is able to release brand-new content EVERY WEEK is because of our wonderful Members and dedicated AdventureCoin buyers. Yaaaay! =D So if you want to support your favorite online adventure game, feed the friendly AQW team, AND get wickedly wicked Dage the Evil items,

Upgrade your Membership today

and

Get some AdventureCoins

I’ll post another Design Notes this afternoon highlighting everything coming in Dage’s Featured Artist Showcase Shop. Stay tuned!

But in the meantime…

Isle of Fotia & the Femme Fatalities

Off the southern coast of Lore is the fabled volcanic Isle of Fotia. The volcano on Fotia (coming from the Greek word meaning ‘fire’) is showing warning signs of erupting. Large tremors beneath the volcano are causing more and more lava to spew into the ocean below. A devastating eruption is bound to happen soon… which will wipe out all of Fotia and her inhabitants!

The volcanic core of the Fotia Volcano in adventure games

Fotia is home to an all female Cult known as the Femme Fatalities. Unfortunately, not much is known about this covert Cult or the island itself. Fotia is surrounded by treacherous water that only a Trireme (an ancient Greek boat) can navigate.

All my efforts to contact the Femme Fatalities have been in vain. Despite my many efforts using the Derp Pony Express, no one from the Cult has responded to any of my messages.

Derp Pony Express logo in online fun games

I did, however, speak with the pirates at Lolosia. Because of their vast knowledge of seafaring vessels, Elisa Keelhaul and her crew have started construction on a Trireme. Keelhaul’s crew believes that their Trireme will offer a safe voyage to the Isle of Fotia… but cannot guarantee safe passage once on the island.

Because I am a girl (surprise!), I have volunteered to travel to the Isle of Fotia on the Trireme. If I manage to make it, I will request an audience with the Femme Fatalities Cult Leader and gather as much information as I can.

Everyone on Twitter is abuzz with questions regarding the Femme Fatalities and their rumored hatred towards Dage the Evil. So long as I complete my mission—and don’t respawn back in Battleon if I fail—then everyone will soon have answers to the mysterious Isle of Fotia!

Toodles Quibble!

Everyone’s favorite traveling sales Moglin is packing up shop! Now is your last chance at getting Quibble’s Mirror Realm goodies (or baddies?) that will probably never be offered again. Eeeep!

Quibble Coinbiter moglin rare items

Over 80 Rare items can be yours—but only until tomorrow! Once the sun sets over Lore tomorrow night, Quibble will leave Battleon, taking ALL his Rare items with him. So now is literally your last chance at scoring Quibble’s Mirror Realm item sets.

Log in now and get Quibble’s awesome loot!   

And stay tuned later today for more info about Dage the Evil’s Featured Artist Showcase Shop =D

Quibble is Coming

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!

Quibble Coinbiter moglin rare items
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!

Rare Items Gravelyn Paladin Doomknight
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.  

T
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 Beleen love cheer happy heartssupport, 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!

New New Beginnings

Another Tutorial?

Yup. Why?

 

Because, while the first one was useful and informative, quite a few of the people we've had test it (none of whom have seen AQW before) thought there was too much to read and it was giving too much information at once. Looking at numbers, it wasn't really helping players get into the action. In the new attempt we decided to keep as simple as we could.


Mr. Clicky Hand helps you! (BTW the sword is found in this new tutorial adventure.)

We wanted to give new players a chance to learn the very basics of AQW. Moving, Fighting, Opening A Shop and Using An Item. We're going to see how this new version treats new players. If it does well then we might tweak it out a little. If it bombs then we try again and keep trying until we get something good. It was pretty weird writing cutscenes with no talking in them at all, but it helps sticking with a simple plot. A tower under attack, a mage in need and a HUGE black dragon to fight.

 

This is really for new players but you can find some pretty nice new weapons in the new tutorial so feel free to try it out and let us know what you think from a brand new players perspective. 

Adventure Time?

One of the BEST things about AQ Classic is the random battle button that automatically takes you right into the action letting you fight stuff that is good for your level.

When I first started playing AQ Classic I spent about 4 hours just clicking that button over and over. It's about time we had something like that for new players. Enter the Random Adventure Button (Beta).

Dumoose spent rather a lot of his week building this smart button. It will (try to) take you to an area in the game that is good for your character, Most of you loyal players who play every release as soon as it comes out on Friday will have done all of this stuff but for people new to the game, or even people who are just trying to level their characters it will be a very fun little tool to play with it. You can try out the button in Battleon and let us know what you think. If you find any bugs remember to report them on our new Bug Tracker. 

Beautiful Creatures Rare Shop

We're not sure if this has anything to do with the movie or not. Probably not. Nobody here has even seen a trailer for it but we naturally assumed it has something to do with red pandas.

Anyway, this gear is really great and it will only be in-game for a limited time so fee free to let your wild side out.
 

Boss Drop Hunt!

To celebrate the release of the Graveclaw cutscenes, we have put the Shattersword Pickaxes on a number of the hardest bosses in game! They will have a VERY low drop rate (less than 1%) and a VERY high sell back, AND they'll stay in-game permanently! 

 

We're interested to see who can solve these clues and be the first to collect all 6! Here are your hints:

  1. Walk the seas of time and sand. Take your enemy's life in hand. Find the battle, hunt the prize. Graveclaw waits, but soon will rise.

  2. It watches from beyond the grave, banished, but now called to save.Now Graveclaw beckons from his cave.

  3. The future calls. The memories bleed. But Graveclaw promises all she'd need.

  4. Music, madness, and memories sing when Graveclaw summons this Beast of a thing.

  5. A question never asked, an answer no one learns. Graveclaw will ally with the one who burns.

  6. Twists and turns to hide the truth. All locked inside a small, skewed cube?

Dage's Epic Birthday Shop!

Dage's birthday (March 2nd) is coming up and as usual he blowing the roof off of it.

 

Next Friday he will be moving from Shadowfall to the Underworld where he will have better access to the Soul Forge to use the spirits of his loyal followers to craft even more devastating weapons and armor. Last year's Paragon pet will NOT return, but he is crafting a NEW Pet for this year that will give access to some interesting stuff. 

Trophy Hunter!

Very recently had release the trophy Hunter special promotional package for certain people, The delivery code worked perfectly (for once) so we are expanding the chance to get the limited time Trophy Hunter set to a larger select group. If you see the Trophy Hunter banner below your game screen...

 

...click up and upgrade then you will unlock the Trophy Hunter badge in your Book of Lore... but you MUST click the banner below the game screen for your upgrade to unlock Trophy Hunter. 

Quibble & Tournament Rares: Last Chance!

Quibble is leaving next Wednesday so this is your last chance to grab items from this visit, including the new Deathblood Set coming to Quibble TONIGHT!

 

I know that I said last week would be the last buff, but the art team has a bad habit of topping their previous best. Next week The Tournament Rares Shop and Heroes Heart Day seasonal map and items will also be leaving on Wednesday.  



If you haven't played the Battle Coliseum yet, don't worry. It's not going anywhere. Only the Tournament Rares shop will be going rare.

No Suggestion Shop Update

We were supposed to have a player Suggestion Shop update today but volunteer developer Vokun was struck down with a mysterious illness (probably the flu) so wasn't able to complete the update this week, but hopefully next week he will be feeling better and be able to return to providing AQW with great art. Get well soon, Vokun!

Battle Coliseum

A Tournament Of Champions For A Princesses Hand

Princess Brittany, eldest daughter of King Alteon and heir to the throne of Swordhaven is holding a Tournament of Heroes and the winner earn the right to court the lovely young princess. 


Who will win the right to Princess Brittany's hand? Will it be the Desert Prince, The Silver Knight, The dashing Lord Brentan, The frigid Johan Wryce, the mysterious hooded Faceless Knight, the viscious Sir Roderick or one of the red-shirt knights who get taken out in the first cutscene? 

This special Heroes Heart Day release features the second appearance of the music of Mia J. Park! It also features an amazing number of items in both the Tournament Rare shop and the Tournament Shop!

One Last Quibble Buff

Solrac has provided one last set to round off this run of Quibble. The Split Fang set!

An impressive caster armor provided to a elite group of magi within Xavier's arm of the Golden Onslaught. 

The Alpha Omega Class

The EpicDuel imspired Alpha Omega class also drops tonight!

This class is only 1000 ACs (half price!) or Members can earn it through group PvP (some of the set items can be earned through 1v1 PvP too). 

You will be able to buy the AC version from Ragnar's Class Shop (Or the Classes button in your Book of Lore) or get the Member earned version from Ragnar's Merge Shop. 

This class will NOT be going rare, so you have plenty of time to earn the Member version. If you want to know more about how it works check out my Alpha Omega Skills Breakdown

Carnaval and Chinese New Year Stick Around

Chinese New Year and Carnaval are still here! Terra da Festa is a permenant addition to the game but the rare shop and Chinese New year will be leaving very soon so don't miss out on the celebration items that you like!

BONUS CONTENT: I probably made some typos in this DNs post. Have fun finding them. OR ELSE!

Defeat the Beast

Battle Through Shattersword to Fight Graveclaw!

Imprisoned by the great King Alteon ages ago, Graveclaw the Defiler has regained enough strength to rise again. Summoning his minions deep within Shattersword Cavern, Graveclaw prepares to unleash his army against the world of Lore! Suit-up in Quibble Coinbiter’s Rare items and delve the dark depths of Shattersword Cavern to defeat the most beastly burden known to man! Wield your weapon, conjure your spells, and Battle ON to victory!

ALL players can relive King Alteon's battle against Graveclaw the Defiler by clicking on the golden statue of King Alteon in /battleontown! But you'll need to upgrade to fight your way to the bottom of Shattersword Cavern and defeat Graveclaw once and for all! 

#BlameCanada for No Power and Derp Cutscenes!

If you haven't watched tonight's cutscenes... prepare for DERP! Normally, it takes 1 animator 2-3 days to finish the 2-3 cutscenes for each week's release. But yesterday night, we got a call from Ghost, who had been working on the boss monster AND cutscene animations! A severe storm had knocked his power out, so he couldn't finish the cutscenes OR the boss monster (or, y'know, even turn his laptop on to send them to us)!

At Artix Entertainment, we never back down from a challenge, or an opportunity to have fun making games, and this news was an opportunity to do BOTH! So Cysero and Samba put on their +15 Animating gauntlets, I pared down the battle scenes, and we got ready to knock out DERP versions of Ghosts soon-to-be-REALLY-finished epic cutscenes!

24 hours of frenzy led to the entire team - and parts of the rest of the game itself - getting turned upside down and inside out! But we pulled it off before release, because that's just how we roll!*

We will let everyone know as soon as Ghost is finished with THIS week's cutscenes! Until then, we would LOVE to hear your comments on the derp versions! Record your audio commentary as you watch them and send us the links!

* To make matters even MORE absurd, Ghost's power was turned back on 2 hours before the release! Not enough time to finish anything but the boss monster. He's hard at work to get you the epic cinematics you love, but for now... enjoy the DERP!

Quibble Coinbiter's Shop is live!

Everyone’s favorite traveling sales Moglin, Quibble Coinbiter, is making his way back to Battleon! Brand-new never-before-seen armors, helms, weapons, and more await the greatest Rare Item collector. Gear up in Golden Onslaughter and Darkblood rare items and show the world just how awesome you are!

Don't miss your chance to get this gear, because it's never going to return! We're not sure where he got it, and we don't really want to know. We just love /equipping it, and hope you all do, too!

This Sunday: Superbowl Half-Time Shop!

It's the biggest American Football game of the year. The 49rs and the Ravens are facing off and it's time for the halftime show. When you've had your fill of watching Beyonce do her thing on stage... head to Battleon and look for the button labled PUNT!

Come join the PUNT map to celebrate this day and these two super-teams with the Miners and Crows armors and the return of other seasonal favorites like the Spiked Pigskin and the Moglin Ref pet! Don't forget that this is the ONLY time of year that you will be able to get the Moglin Punter Character Page Achievement Badge and all you have to do kis kick Twilly the full 100 yards!

Good luck and no matter who wins we hope you enjoy the Superbowl!

This Friday: King vs Beast

Defeat Graveclaw the Defiler in Shattersword Cavern!

Prepare for battle, Heroes! Decades ago, a young King Alteon defeated Graveclaw the Defiler, imprisoning him beneath the Forest of Chaos in Shattersword Cavern. To drain off his power, Gravelyn has been sending warriors down to face Graveclaw in battle. But the Cavern’s dark magic combined with Graveclaw’s own power to twist him… and those sent to fight him.

He’s gained enough strength to rise again, and this time he brings an entire army to confront Alteon, Gravelyn, and all those who confined him so many years ago. Head down into Shattersword Cavern and defeat Graveclaw before he can unleash his army against Swordhaven!

ALL players can watch a young King Alteon take on Graveclaw in the Forest of Chaos, but you'll need to upgrade to descend to the depths of Shattersword Cavern and defeat the beast! Find the golden Statue of King Alteon in Battleontown this Friday to begin the adventure!

The Hunt for Graveclaw's Kamas begins TODAY!

It may be that Graveclaw has already had contact with creatures outside his prison! The hunt for the Shattersword Kama is on! Battle creatures throughout Lore using the clue below as a starting point for where to look, then slay anything that might fit the hint! 

 

Decipher the clue, defeat the creature, get the prize!

The location of this weapon - and the clue - will change tomorrow! The item is 0 ACs, so enjoy the free storage after you /party up with your friends and start hunting! 

Magic users big and small, Graveclaw will recruit them all. 
Find the creature, take its prize. Swift comes the Defiler's rise!

Quibble Coinbiter Arrives This Friday!

The traveling sales moglin, Quibble Coinbiter, returns to Battleon THIS FRIDAY with an all-new assortment of rare items (most of which he is willing to part with in exchange for AdventureCoins)!


This shop's theme is Golden Onslaughter/Darkblood, so prepare yourselves for the shiniest and darkest gear yet!

Look for more details on what comes in Quibble's shop later this week!

Leaving later today: Witch Hunter Shop, Boosts!

Both the Witch Hunter shop and the server-wide boosts leave game at midnight tonight! The Season of the Witch Hunter shop will return the next time something wicked this way comes. The server-wide boosts will happen regularly from now on, but we do not have a set schedule. Let us know on the forum, Twitter, and Facebook what special times YOU would like to see them!

Coming Friday

Darkblood, Treasure Chests, MOD Birthdays and More!

This Friday the new Chaos Lord Lionfang saga continues in the Darkblood city of Falguard. 

Captain Madra and one of her Falguard Dreadwatch Soldiers

This week you will enter the mysterious Darkblood city of FALGUARD, whose doors have remained closed to outsiders for years. The Darkblood Scroll has been translated and a newly empowered CHAOS LORD LIONFANG plans to test out his new powers searching for the Darkblood weapon that may be able to defeat Chaos. 

The City will feature the Thunderforge Reputation Shop (on Madra herself), A Weapon Shop, An Armor Shop, a Hair Shop, at least one dark alley, a few quests to grind Thunderguard Reputation (more for Members) and, of course, the storyline quests. 

Can you find the secret weapon of the Darkblood before Chaos Lord Lionfang rips Falguard apart?

Other Stuff Happening This Week

  • We have new treasure chest items coming for all of you who have unlocked been stocking the treasure chests up and Members who have been stockpiling your free Treasure Chest Keys from Twilly


  • We have TWO Mod birthday shops coming Friday as well. Captain Stratos, Co-head Moderator and Bug Master General and Vokun, one of our newest volunteer assistant developers!


  • The 1 Year Member Golden Set Member Package is going away, to be replaced by the Jade Samurai 1 Year Member Set which is exactly the same as the other package but with a different set.  

Stuff Coming In The Future

We're working on some new Membership perks for you guys, in addition to the one that Alina talked about earlier. We are trying to workout a system where Members would simply get MORE ACs. If you buy the 2000 AC package and you're a Member then you would get more than 2000 ACs. 

How many more? Still working on making it happen (It may never happen, but we're trying) so we'll saw for sure at that time. 

Next week Quibble will be coming back to Battleon and will be bringing a host of all new, slightly used rares from the future (and past in this case). A few of you were asking if Xavier Lionfang's Silver Lion Armor would be released during the Lionfang Saga... well, it is. 

Funny story: ORIGINALLY the Lionfang armor art was silver, but went back for a recolor and came out the gold version that we all know. Makes sense that Xavier would get his big brother's hand-me-downs. 

Changes to Battleon will start happening soon. Things will start moving, appearing, vanishing, shifting, sliding and expanding. 

The Search For New Mods Continues

Reens and Stratos are still looking for a few good players who help expand the Moderator team of AQW. 

If you want to know how to apply, READ THIS CAREFULLY. I've had people e-mailing me and even trying to apply on Twitter which just proves that you either

  1. Didn't bother to read the directions,
  2. Skimmed them but didn't pay attention, or
  3. Can't read English well enough to be a Mod.

No matter which way you go, if you can't even apply correctly then you lacking some very necessary qualifications that we need in our Mods. 

People have been asking me who "won the Mod contest?". I can't stress enough that this is not a contest to be won, it's a volunteer job to be applied for. It's a pretty serious and necessary position and we have some fairly high standards for what we expect from our Mods. 

It's hours and hours of helping, reading thousands of player reports and trying your best to help other players. It's a thankless job but that's OK because we don't pay you anything. We even put restrictions on the items that Mods get. The only rewards are a gold name, the chance to test the releases before they are finished and the chance to help make AQW a better and safer game for everyone.
