"My First Battle-Pet" Shop

Howdy hey! Samba here, and today I'm going to give you a little rundown of our new "My First Battle-Pet" shop that will be released tomorrow. 


You've met Balboa, he's our battle-pet trainer. He's tough as nails, despite his squishy Moglin body. He scours the lands of Lore, looking for beasts to collect and tame. His dream is to be the ringmaster of his own circus someday. Can you help him out? He will be hanging out in BattleOn this week, and then move to Aria's Pet Shop.

4 BRAND NEW battle pets will be released this week. They will stay in the shop forever as staples for new fighters looking for battle companions. More will be added as time goes on. These battle-pets will be:


Gorillaphant Calf - He's ready to throw punches left, right and hook for you!


Hate Hawk - Whoever that is trying to beat you up, this hawk HATES them!


Turbo Turtle - This courageous cooter is a descendant of the ancient Titan Turtle. He's prepared to protect and shield you in battle!


Battle Kitten - This little sweetheart is MORE than happy to rip your oppenent to tiny shreds!

We'll also be introducting a rare battle-pet when time permits me. These will stay in the shop for ONE WEEK at a time. We will be sure to announce on the DNs and over Twitter when a new rare pet is making a stop into the shop. This week's rare battle-pet will be:


...the Fightin' Frogzard! He'll hop right into the fray with you! HE WILL LEAVE THE SHOP WEDS, OCT 3RD!

I've recieved a TON of awesomesauce suggestions on the forums, and don't fear, your suggestions have been heard! Look for other exotic critters like, oh I dunno... Chicken Cows! Penguins! Sneevil Mercenary! Meeses! Armored pets! And a larger variety of Undead Servants for Necromancers, too!

(Please note: General ideas and monsters of the AE universe are considered for this kind of pet shop. If you have a pet YOU designed, I recommend submitting that to the Suggestions Forum for the Player Suggestion Shop instead.)

Balboa's Battle-Pet Shop is MEMBER-ONLY*, and is our way of thanking those of you who have taken the time and money to upgrade your account to support us here at AdventureQuest Worlds and Artix Entertainment as a whole. Because of you, it is possible for me to come to a job everyday and do something I love, for players I love. Please accept this as my big "Thank you!" members!

Balboa looks forward to y'all stopping by tomorrow! And don't forget J6 will be having his Rare House Shop in BattleOn too! :)

Love, Samba Samba Samba <3

* Though there may be 1 or 2 in each shop update that require Membership and AdventureCoins.

Stomp to my beat!

December 08, 2011

It's time to /SAMBA!

Don't stop till you groove enough!

Howdy hey players, the time has finally come! The /Dance Evolution minigame is coming tonight to play at my disco in the troll village of Bloodtusk Ravine. Now in an Ordinary World, you’d have to spend YEARS to achieve amazing samba skills, but here in AQW, you just have to tap your foot and match some arrows to unlock the /samba dancing emote. So get busy like a Bumble Bee and dance to the MAX!

Now you’ll notice a lovely blond troll dancing with me. This is actually one of my best friends from real life, Tango. In high school, many, many, MANY weekends were spent stomping on arrows, snarfing down sushi and then settling in for a Cowboy Bebop sleepover marathon. So it’s only appropriate that Tango and I are dancing side by side in a game that we cared so much about and that helped make our friendship that much groovier.


Sadly, life isn’t always BRILLIANT 2U. Last month, Tango was struck by a drunk driver and has been hospitalized ever since with extensive damage. But, being the MIRACLE that she is Tango pulled through a 2 week coma, and is now stable. As Days Go By she is regaining more and more mobility, memory and cheer.

This weekend Tango got to leave the hospital and to welcome her home, I’m very happy to introduce her to you, Heroes. No more shall we be Dancing All Alone!

Please keep Tango in your thoughts as you adventure. The road to recovery will be a Long Train Runnin’. And if you ever, ever, EVER are in the situation where someone is about to drive drunk, Make A Difference and blow the Whistle Song! Report them to a responsible adult and you may very well be saving a life!


So here’s the
BRE∀K DOWN! of the update to my disco:
- /Dance Evolution minigame!
- Winning unlocks the /samba emote!
- 4 female versions of Tango’s hairstyle and 2 male versions in Samba’s shop w/ CC stripe!
- New quest, "Tango! Tango! Tango!" with Tango’s red, silver and black dancing armor reward!

Dance on!

Pumpkin Carving Contest Reminder


PUMPKINS, ZOMG!

Hey everybody, Samba here with a reminder that our 3rd Annual AE Pumpkin Carving Contest is still going! :D How exciting!

Now we had some last minute rule changes, so I just want to present to you an AWESOME example of what submitted entries should look like:

How beautiful, Liryos! Because you have a handwirtten index card with your AQW NAME and YEAR, I can tell that this was made recently and by you! It is AE-themed! Because it is lit up, I can see all the lovelely detail you put into Moglowumpkin! SO RAD!

So once again, here are the official rules and guidelines:

• Your pumpkin MUST be carved BY YOU! 

• Only ONE photo submitted per person, please. 

• Include an index card or a piece of paper with the year (2011) and your (and only your) AQW Character Name--this way we really know it's made by you, and so we can award you with AC prizes if you win! Make sure your AQW name is readable and legible! 

• Your pumpkin MUST be your own ORIGINAL WORK! Any work that is copied via Internet and/or Stencils or simply Copy-Pasted of some supreme pumpkin-carving legend will lead to an automatic DISQUALIFICATION. 

• Your pumpkin MUST be carved in an AE theme. Check out pumpkins from 2009 and 2010!! 

• Your pumpkin carving can relate to anything from AdventureQuest Worlds or any other Artix Entertainment game! 

• Your canvas must be a pumpkin or another form of squash and/or gourd. 

• The photo of your carved pumpkin must be of the Highest Quality—the bigger and more clear the picture, the better! Make sure that you provide a VALID URL to your photo. Try using a reliable photo uploader like Photobucket, TinyPic or Twitpic. 

• You have until 11:59pm EST on Monday, October 31st to submit a photo of your carved pumpkin! 

So only if you've followed the rules above, go moonwalk your way over to the Official Pumpkin Carving Contest Thread on the forums to submit your entry!

Again, we here at AE work with image-editing software daily. We can tell when you are cheating and /ignore said entries pretty quickly. Be adventurous and creative and carve your AE dreams into these unsuspecting gourds! Go forth, Heroes of Mogloween!

CARVE ON!

3RD UPHOLDER!

October is AQWorlds' anniversary month! And THAT means that anyone who upgrades (as long as your upgrade expires ON or AFTER November 4th, 2011) will become a 3rd Upholder! That'll get you a sweet character page achievement and the EPIC Platinum Star Sword!(The Star Sword will not be released until November 4th.) Hop on that!
