The Bandits of the Heath
Life is hard on the Steppes. General Kyron knows this better than anyone. That's why he did it, right? Robbing caravans, holding up travelers, demanding tolls that didn't exist. One-time Bandit Chieftain Kyron did what he had to do in order to ensure the survival of his troupe. But that is all over and done with.
There's a problem, though... recently, reports of bandit activity have made Kyron nervous. With the war and the plague, he cannot afford any distractions. It is up to you to help Kyron take down his former comrades, and escape the shackles of his troubled past!
Centaur Tier Package Details

Rumors of Dragon Sightings!
Rumors about of dragons being sighted on the steppes, and over the Fire Islands themselves. Visit Vasalkar's Lair to take your chance at finding the 0 AC Akriloth's Bane polearm (available for a limited time), and also a hint about what comes next!
Happy Birthday Galanoth!
Gear up to DragOn! It's Galanoth the DragonSlayer's birthday today, so we released a special addition to the Lair map in his honor!
To celebrate, he'll need YOUR help to throw a party for every DragonSlayer on Lore. If there's one thing DragonSlayers do well (besides slaying dragons...) it's PARTY! He'll need you to go on quest to provide all the tastiest birthday treats: Dragon-Spice Cake, Wyrmfire Punch, Dragondoodle Cookies, and more!

One of your fellow heroes, Boxer502 is best known for the many tophat suggestions that have found their way into our holiday event releases!

Vordred is cranky and Faith Moves!
From time to time we take a look at older maps and see what we can do to make them play a little more smoothly. This week's job is to re-tool the /vordredboss map in order to get the shops opening in the right order!
It seems that Vordred is being difficult, so we need to take him down and give him a little bit of a lesson on how to play nice with others! While /vordredboss is getting rebuilt, you can now get the Blinding Light of Destiny Handle from Arryd's Doomwood Challenge Shop... for a limited time only!
Faith has really made herself at home in /Northpointe, which is why she has disappeared from Battleon. Fear not, Beastmasters, as her Beastmaster Shop and quests have made the trip to Northpointe!

- Friday, February 27th: Quibble*, Hero's Heart Day and Friday the 13th leave

Legion Paladin Class Skills Breakdown
Legion Paladins are the dishonest and evil protectors of… DAGE and DAGENESS! Heh, but really... You used to be a Paladin and now you’re the undead minion of a seemingly invincible armored lich. Use your skill in both light and darkness to strike down all who oppose.. Whatever you believe you’re fighting for.
How to Unlock Legion Paladin Class
When you buy a Legion Armor T-shirt or Paladin Armor T-shirt from Heromart.com, each comes with an awesome weapon and half of the "Legion Paladin" class. Combine both halves to create the full class in AdventureQuest Worlds! Themed after the shirts... we merged Artix's Paladin armor and Dage's Paragon armor together into a horrifying and powerful new class.
- Get the Legion Light of Destiny when you buy the Legion Armor T-Shirt
- Get the Purified Caladbolg Sword when you buy the Paladin Armor T-Shirt
- Get the Legion Paladin CLASS when you buy both T-shirts
Legion Paladin Class Skills
Auto Attack: Pretty basic. 2 second cooldown.
You need to be able to swing around your weapon somehow.
Extirpate: 15 Mana, 5 second cooldown
Increases damage taken by 10% while increasing damage done by 25% for 6 seconds.
Mending Gloom: 30 Mana, 8 second cooldown
Heals up to 2 friendly targets.
Shadowlight Spear: 32 Mana, 12 second cooldown
Does increased damage, but applies Bones Aflame, doing DoT damage to yourself.
Shadowplate & Penumbra Rank 4 Passives
Increases your endurance by 15%
Reduces damage taken from spells by 25%
Neat little passives. Helps you survive more. Not much to say about it.
Soul Breaching: 15 Mana, 12 second cooldown
Damages enemies while enhancing mana regeneration with a guaranteed crit.
Overall View of the Class
Legion Paladins gain mana when they strike an enemy in combat. Most prefer strength, intellect but don't mind endurance and dexterity.
- Medium healing + mana support.
- High damage, no AoE.
- Works well as a hybrid.
- No bonuses or debuffs to your own or enemy hit chance or haste.
- Huge damage but comes with a price.. one you’re totally capable of healing right back.

The Ruler has been decided!!
The four contenders for the Vampire Throne were reduced to two: Lady Solani and Baron Luca! Many battles were fought, the rule of the Blood Run has been proven! The new ruler of Darkovia is.... Lady Solani!
Head into the Eternalnight area to watch the cutscene and see how the final battle went down... then prepare to bow to your new Queen (or flee with your chosen ruler to plot takeovers)!

The Eye of Chaos Sees All
An ill-wind blows through Lore, and Chaos is on the rise! Seek throughout Lore for the special item that will reveal a secret about the upcoming Lords of Chaos Finale! Changes are coming - whether they be good or bad remains to be seen.
It's watching you.
We've added a special limited-time drop to the Chaos Dragon in /castleroof - the Cry of Chaos axe! Slay the dragon for a chance to get the axe. Hold onto it, and sometime next week, its in-game description will change to reveal a secret about the upcoming chaos finale. Talk to Beleen in Battleon to start the hunt!

We will read all the applications. If you are chosen to go through a further interview, we will contact you. Unfortunately, we cannot reply to everyone.
