Quibble Coinbiter Returns... for EVIL!

Prepare... for DARKNESS with Quibble Gear!

Quibble is in Battleon this weekend, heralding the coming of the Throne of Darkness Saga next month! He's selling most of his gear for AdventureCoins, but has a few things for everyone... if you can meet his price! 

What Will Quibble Coinbiter Bring?

If you've seen Quibble appear before, you know that his arrival heralds the beginning of the next main storyline... so THIS time around, he's bringing gear from crafted in honor of so many heroes' favorite alignment: EVIL!

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

  • Laken's ExoSkeletal Warrior Set
  • Memet's Spiders & Sorcery Set
  • Goddess' Esoteric Anarchist Set
  • Mort et Quibble Bank Pet
  • Blade's Dread Scythe
  • the Unfluffy Trophy Tail Cape
  • the Crimson Shadows Blade
  • and more! 

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! 

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*.

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!

** 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***?

Quibble's Pirate Armors Leave Tonight

Reminder: Quibble's Talk Like a Pirate Armors Leave Tonight!

Don't miss your last chance to get the Paragon and Mechanical Naval Commander armors or the Arcan Pirate Captain sets! The Naval Commander CLASS and armor will return with NEXT YEAR'S Talk Like a Pirate Day Quibble shop, but none of the other rare gear will ever be available again!

Quibble's Pirate Adventure House Leaving Soon!

Since we had to move Quibble's shop into the game menu, his house shop was temporarily unavailable this past week. So, while his Rare GEAR Shop will leave tonight, his Rare HOUSE Shop will be available for one more week! You'll find that back in your game menu until next Friday starting with tonight's release!

Guardian Shadow Cape Issue

Earlier today, we added a shop to the PTR Tester badge in the Book of Lore. This was for heroes who helped us test WAY back in 2010, and the goal was to let them recover an item they may have lost or sold. When we checked the dates to determine that the badge we were placing the shop on matched with the item we wanted to give access to, the dates appeared to match up... but we were incorrect.

Because players who did not originally unlock the Guardian Shadow Cape were getting it, we have removed the shop from the PTR Tester badge, and in the morning will do a sweep to remove it from accounts which should not have it.

I apologize for any frustration this has caused, and hope you enjoy this weekend's coming release!

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!

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

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!!!

Wheel of Destiny Arrives Friday!

Fate, fortune, luck, and doom all play a part in every battle in AQWorlds... but sometimes, a hero wants to look on the bright side of a coin toss. That's why Shiny, the Moglin of Desires, has built his own version of the Wheel of Doom! 

Choose which Wheel to spin - Doom OR Destiny - because both your single and stacks of tickets will work for both! Legends get 1 free spin on the Wheel each day, but will need to choose whether to use it on the Wheel of Doom OR the Wheel of Destiny! 

Available in both Wheel merge shop until September 31st!

Each Wheel has the same prizes, merge shop, and drop rates. But if you prefer to hope in bright surroundings rather than dream in a room filled with doom, then /join Destiny this Friday! If you /join doom NOW, you'll find both the "Skull and Bones Blad" and the "Ancient Skull and Bones Blade" in the merge shop until September 30th!

Chika's Sakura Birthday Shop!

If you follow Artix, Cysero, or my Twitter account, you'll see us talking to our friend Tom, who lives in Japan and often sends us mounds of epic goodies! Today, he and his wife, Chika, were at the Lab visiting from overseas! 

We had a special surprise for Chika: not only did we have a birthday shop full of sweet Sakura-themed gear, but we let her roll the release live! (After warning her NOT to push the BIG RED BUTTON that shuts all the servers down without warning)

Chika's Sakura Shop contains:

  • Sakura Kimono
  • Sakura Fan Staff
  • Jeweled Sakura Wand
  • Dancing Sakura Shortsword
  • Dancing Sakura Daggers
  • Brutal Beauty Mace
  • Sakura Scythe

Everyone at AE wishes Chika a happy birthday and hopes you'll share in the celebration by checking out her birthday shop! It will be in-game until September 30th!

Friday: You'll be Kraken Like a Boss!

Legends can battle their way to the watery home of the Chaos Kraken in Bonebreak Deep to retrieve the incredibly valuable treasure stolen from Gustav duGrog! Fair warning: this challenge fight is one you'll want to dive into with an entire party!

All players can take on monsters in the Skullpunch map to get resources to create 1 of over 40 Naval-themed tophats! These top hats are available to ALL players, though Legend versions will have an extra bonus to undead monsters!

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 [email protected] 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

  • 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

Meet the Shadow Sorcerer. This devotee of the dark—along with 12 in-game items—can be yours starting Friday with our new 5,000 AdventureCoins package

With your 5,000 AC purchase, you will receive:

So on Friday, make sure you purchase our new 5,000 AdventureCoins package so you can become the most feared Shadow Sorcerer of all! 

Also arriving on Friday….

More Quibble Rares and the grand reopening of Swordhaven Castle is set to launch Friday at sundown!

New game release coming on Friday

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.

The celebrations will continue outside of Swordhaven, too. A special first-of-its-kind Pinjat Pinang party will ensue Friday evening. This unique tradition is one of the oldest in Indonesian history and will soon go down in AQWorlds history as well!

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

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

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.)

When Does Quibble Coinbiter Arrive?

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

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
