After a year of taking chances, daring fate, and risking DOOM... the Carnival of Fortune is closing its gates on August 23rd! This is your last chance to use your Fortune Tickets to get drops from the Wheels of Doom and Destiny. The Doom and Destiny merge shops will remain in-game and available for those who still have Fortune Potions to spend in them. New gear will be available from the Wheels and merge shops starting this Friday.
Some of Friday's new gear!
Why are we closing them now, you ask? Good question. The Wheels were always controversial, but many of you guys enjoyed taking a chance to get exclusive items, and hunting for that elusive Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness. We thought that was a pretty cool idea, too!
More new wheel gear arriving Friday!
But due to a number of issues, including exploit abuse and some core communcation issues between Flash and the web browser, we want to shift our focus away from the Wheels to a better system. One that will still give extra bonuses to Legends, but will also give free players a more reliable means of getting in-game rewards...
New Daily Login System
One of the nicest Legend Perks in the Wheels of Doom and Destiny are the free Daily Wheel spins. We want to keep giving our upgraded players an advantage in getting the newest, coolest gear... so we are transferring the "Legend bonus" to our plans for the new Daily Login System.
If you saw our test of that a few months back, you'll know that all you need to do is log in each day to get more and bigger prizes! When we bring back the system, it will have some changes, including a combination of the Wheel and Treasure Chest system (according to the current plan).
Every 7 days everyone will get a free Treasure Chest Key to get free swag
Legends will get more than one key
Legends will also have a chance to win more free ACs every week (with the amount increasing each consecutive week you log in without missing a day)
We are still plotting out the changes and additions we want to make to the daily login system, but we will make sure it's a step up for Legends, while still making sure all our other players get daily rewards, too!
Free Spin Tickets Coming Monday!
This Monda, if you have spun the Wheel of Doom or Destiny this month, you'll receive 5 free spins. If you are a Legend you'll received 25 spins! (The free daily and monthly spins count for this.)
The Ultimate Game Card is retiring September 30, 2014
Mondays suck. And what sucks even more is that the Ultimate Game Card is going permanentlyrare on9/30/2014 =(
This was not decided by Artix Entertainment, nor was it some evildoing by EbilCorp ninja robots. The decision to end Ultimate Game Card was solely a PlaySpan choice (the dudes who own UGC), and they’re cancelling the UGC for all online games (not just Artix games), so listen up so you don’t miss out!
Ultimate Game Cards are slowly being pulled from all retail & online stores, and the UGC will be gone come August 15th, 2014. The last day to redeem your activated UGC codes will be September 30, 2014, so make sure you redeem your codes before 9/30/2014!!
UltimatePoints (aka UPoints) will also be going rare. The last day to redeem your UPoints is Friday, October 31, 2014.
AQWorlds wants to make sure you get the most bang for your buck while you still can. So when you use your Ultimate Game Card to upgrade to a Legend Membership, and/or to buy AdventureCoins, you will get the exclusive Ultimate Game Claymore sword!
The only way to get the Ultimate Game Claymore is by redeeming your Ultimate Game Card herefrom now until September 30. After selecting ANY package on the AQW Order Now page, and after using your Ultimate Game Card to pay for your upgrade,
you will automatically receive the Ultimate Game Claymore blade in your inventory (along with your well-deserved Membership and/or AdventureCoins!).
The entire Artix team is so thankful for your continued support in AdventureQuest Worlds. It is because of dedicated Legends and AdventureCoins buyers that we are able to create brand new stuff every week for everyone to enjoy! We couldn’t have gotten this far without you, and for that, I salute you!
When you buy your Ultimate Game Card, and when you get your Ultimate Game Claymore, be sure to Tweet me a pic @BeleenAE!

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!
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.
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!
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 Onlyor require AdventureCoins.
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,
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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 support, and any donation made to us is greatly appreciated and continues to make AQW your favorite online MMO!
Wouldn’t it be AWESOME to see an entire AQWorlds Item Set made by one of the Artix Entertainment artists every single week? In some sort of limited-time Artist Showcase Shop? Right in the Game Menu?
YES YES YES!
The Showcase Scoop
Starting today, Tuesday, April 16, and every Tuesday that follows*, AQWorlds will release a special “Limited Time Featured Artist Showcase Shop” loaded with items that an Artix Entertainment artist creates using their own style and flair.
The Limited Time Artist Showcase Shop will feature a complete Item Set made by an Artix Entertainment artist, created in any manner they so choose. This shop encourages our wonderful artists to unleash their creativity and make some truly epic Armors, Weapons, Helms, and other Items for AQWorlds.
And because it’s called the Limited Time Artist Showcase Shop, the artist’s items will run for 1 week (Tuesday until Tuesday) with a new artist’s Showcased Items replacing the previous set.
At least one RARE item will be included in each artist’s showcased shop. All other items in the shop may or may not return at a later date—that’s all up to the artist! The Rare Item will alwayssell for AdventureCoins (free storage woohoo!) and will ONLY be available during that week.
*We say every Tuesday… and we mean it! We’re ganna keep on releasing new Artist Showcase Shops every Tuesday until we run out of artists… or run out of coffee.
The First Limited Time Artist Showcase Shop
Vokun is the first to be featured in the Limited Time Artist Showcase Shop!
Vokun’s person stash of undead pirate items is guaranteed to shiver the timbers of friends and foes throughout your swashbuckling travels.
Void Blade of Vokun – RARE!

Who is Vokun?
Legend foretells that Vokun was a Lord of the Forgotten Tombs, guarding its fabled treasures and dark magic. When the Forgotten Tombs collapsed during an earthquake, Vokun locked himself up for a millennium. Now that Vokun has resurfaced, he has harnessed the Tombs’ dark magic, creating a new breed of dark army followers.
In the real world, Vokun is an AQWorlds volunteer artist hailing from the Netherlands. Inspired by the artists of Artix Entertainment, Vokun began his own artistic adventures with Flash less than a year ago. Vokun receives lots of help and positive energy from the Artix gaming community and continues to master his art and style.

In addition to tonight's release of the Necropolis, we are hanging 10 to celebrate the start of summer. Behold the limited time series of rare item surf boards. Good for battling water elementals and great white shark monsters (Dun dun dun dunnnn dun dunnnn) They will be available for 350AC. Next year we will do a new series of boards featuring new characters -- we would love it if you told us which NPCs should go on those!
Tonight’s Release is not for those who are afraid of heights…
MAYDAY! MAYDAY! Captain Stratos of King Alteon's Skyguard has just reported that his airship is under attack! Gladius and his Draconian Sky Pirates have invaded The Phereless and the Skyguard needs your assistance!
Statos has requested that the Skyguard drop anchor in Battleon in order to recruit fearless warriors to fight off the onslaught of Sky Pirates.
So let’s back up a bit: What exactly is a Skyguard?
The Skyguard are King Alteon’s flying army. They are noble aerial warriors who patrol the skies above Swordhaven and Battleon on the constant lookout for danger. After seeing the threat of Sepulchure’s flying fortress, the Good King saw fit to create a group of knights that could combat him anywhere. The Skyguard can go anywhere and attack from anywhere—no evil is safe from them.
But now the airship, The Phereless, is under attack by Sky Pirates! Their leader, Gladius, has been reported on the ship’s deck along with a massive armored dragon outfitted with anti-air cannons.
Wow… that sounds safe. Where do I sign up to join the Skyguard?
Once everyone was evacuated from Battleon during the server shutdown, Captain Stratos dropped anchor and is taking the most valiant heroes aboard the Skyguard airship.
But before you head on deck, it would be wise to gear up in some RARE official Skyguard loot!
Runed Skyguard Sword
Cobalt Skyguard Blade
Skyguard Blade and Shield
Skyguard Captain Hat
Skyguard Uniform Armor
Gilded Skyguard Helm
Elegant Skyguard Hat
Skyguard Full Helm
Skyguard Officer Helm
Skyguard Commander Helm
Formal Skyguard Cape
Skyguard Officer’s Blade
Skyguard Crystal Blade
Skyguard Falcon Blade
The Skyguard really know how to dress for battle! All the items in the Skyguard Outfitters Shop are RARE and will NEVER be offered again. Most of the items offered here sell for AdventureCoins, so make sure you stock up on ACs if you hope to get the best of the best loot while you still can!
Reports have flooded in that the baddies on board have some pretty impressive item drops as well. But since The Phereless is still hovering around somewhere up there… I haven’t been able to check the monsters for their drops just yet.
Ewww… ‘monster drops’ sounds a little disconcerting….
Speaking of disconcerting matters…
Port-A-Pwnzor Complete Armor Set!
Flush away evil with the Port-A-Pwnzor armor set! To celebrate World Toilet Day, Ballyhoo is offering you the chance to get the complete set of Port-A-Pwnzor Armor, Port-A-Pwnzor Helm, Port-A-Plunger Mace, and Port-A-Pwnzor Cloak!
That… actually… turned out a lot better than I thought!
Visit Ballyhoo up to 10 times a day to have a chance at getting this totally weird (and awesome) complete armor set. It will be available all this week so have fun watching those ads! And don’t forget: every time you watch a Ballyhoo Ad, you have the chance at winning gold, items, and even FREE ACs!
You can find Ballyhoo in Battleon Town Square (right next to Valencia) or by /join ballyhoo. Without the period. Because then the command won’t work!
It's DragonFable's very first voice-acting event! So make sure your sound and music options are checked! Starring the vocal talents of George Lowe, Cysero and Lim (voiced by their real life counterparts), Serenity (played by Alina), and Lime the moglin (voiced by the talented Nythera), Falconreach Idle is DragonFable's first parody of all those reality TV talent shows you know, love (or maybe hate) so much!
And it is ALL happening NOW!! It'll be a half-hour packed with action, puns, and a panel of judges who are VERY ready to tell you exactly what they think about your act! So instead of grasping your remote control, you'll need to grab your mouse and double-click your way to Falconreach because YOU are going to be a STAR!
Yup! Next Thursday is the day that we give thanks by stuffing our faces with turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, deviled eggs, sweet potato casserole and all that delish home holiday fixin’s. In AQWorlds, Oishii is back with her classic cooking and cornycopia-filled adventures. We will be releasing on Wednesday next week since the entire team will be in a deep hibernation come Friday morning.
There WILL BE a Black Friday Shop next week. But uh… we honestly don’t know what is going to go in it. Yet.
If you have any ideas, let us hear about them on the forums or on our twitters! We always love to hear your ideas!
With Mogloween in full swing and the Chaos Lord fight a mere week away aand the return of Kimberly from One Eyed Doll aaand word of a Vampire Lord gathering an army aaaand the Birthday Event coming to an end aaaaand pumpkin carving masterpiece madness aaaaand 2nd Upholders and Onyx Starswords on their way aaaaaannnndd…
… wait wait wait WAIT! Who changed the Design Notes back to black?
Now that my pink reign of terror is over, you can see that there is A LOT going on right now and in the near future.
First thing on the agenda: our 2nd Birthday Event is going RARE!
This is your last chance to get your hands on AQWorlds’ Second Birthday Rare items. On Wednesday, November 3rd, all of the RareItems throughout the event will FOREVER disappear and will NEVER be offered again.
So for all you Rare Item collectors out there, or if you’re just starting off your collection, or if you just wanna have a piece of AQWorlds history, then hurry up and play through the Birthday Event to make sure to get all those Rares while you still can!
November 3rd is also when our wonderful Members will be bestowed with the honor of 2nd Upholder! This weekend is your last chance to get the 2nd Upholder Achievement and the collector's Onyx Starsword that will be awarded on Wednesday!
aaaaaaaand then on Wednesday you can show off your
totally epic Onyx Starsword!
Like Founder... once this achievement is gone, it will NEVER be available again. Thank you to everyone who is supporting the game during its 2nd anniversary! Without the support from you and your fellow Members, none of this would EVER be possible. And we have YOU to thank!
Founders will be receiving a NEW pet on Wednesday: the Onyx Platinum Dragon pet! Our Founders were the first supports of AQWorlds so if you see one of our old time friends in game, make sure to thank them for supporting us right from the get go =D
AH, you guys are just so awesome I’ve lost my train of thought. What was I going to say…?
OH RIGHT! So I hear that some Vampire bat lookin’ guy is building an army. Right before Mogloween? Srsly dude? I have candy to collect and a costume to find… and there aren’t NEARLY enough solid pink costumes out there…
Luckily, Kimberly from One-Eyed Doll is coming to help! And she has a face-melting guitar-smashing new music video that is going to PREMIERE in game TOMORROW!
No, I can’t show you the video. BUT I can tease you with some new item previews =D
I do not know if the items during tomorrow night’s release are going to be perma Rare, or Event Rare, or Seasonal Rare, or Medium Rare (mmm, sounds delicious). I guess we will all have to wait until tomorrow to find out!
Don’t forget, the Pumpkin Carving Contest ends this Sunday, October 31st. Make sure you get your entry in before then if you want a shot at the 5,000 AdventureCoin grand prize!
Quibble leaves Tomorrow, along with his 33 Rare Item Collection
Is it just me, or has this past week just flown by? Who gave Time a +15 Agility Buff? (and why haven’t I gotten a buff like that in real life? I need to have a word with the Time Travel Faeries… and the coffee maker…)
Since Friday is a day away, I should let you all know that Quibble is leaving tomorrow! Yes, the 15 Arcangrove-inspired items in his shop will vanish come sundown Friday along with those 16 awesome Talk Like A Pirate Day armors, captain hats, bandanas, and back items (+2 House Items!). So if you haven’t already plundered Quibble’s shop, now is your last chance!
Sure, you can wait another 361 days for the next TLAPD, but no one can say if those Rare items in Quibble’s shop will ever resurface. So your best bet is to do some last-minute AdventureCoin shopping in order to get your hands on the savviest loot in all the seven seas! And remember, you can store as many AC items you want in your bank for free and forever! Yaaaaar, it be true!
You can also earn AdventureCoins through 3rd Party Offers, ya know! And if you haven’t already (or just forgot about it), downloading the AQW Battle Bar allows you to earn ACs for each valid search you type in! I use mine every day. Not just for searching, the Battle Bar provides instant access to the Design Notes, Home Page, and Character Page! It’s pretty convenient AND earns me AdventureCoins! Sweet.
Arcangrove Part 4: The Ruins of Great Gilead
Finally you get a sneak-peek at what we have planned out for this week’s release! You are going to want to make sure that you have completed all the quests in Arcangrove, The Cloister, Mudluk Village, and The Natatorium so that you can journey to the magical city of the Great Gilead.
The Great Gilead was once thriving city of great magical achievement, but due to a terrible magical accident, it lies in ruins, deserted for more than a thousand years. It is now a place of study and quiet meditation for the spirit speaking Shamans. You must seek out Master Shaman Umbra in the Ruins if you hope to obtain the next piece of the Supreme Arcane Staff: the Wrap of Gilead.
Just a few Great Gilead weapons
You and your friends will embark on quests that will enlighten you on the Four Elementals of Lore: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. Only when you have a deep understanding of these elements will you be able to confront the Guardian of the Gilead Wrap. Oh, and there will be an all-new puzzle that needs solving before you can take out the Great Gilead’s Boss!
I cannot wait for tomorrow! Which is going to come much sooner rather than later with that new agility buff applied to it. Someone give Time a speeding ticket, will ya? Thx!
