Available in both Wheel merge shop until September 31st!

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
  • Soldados Brasileiros 2013 armor
  • Punhais Brasileiros 2013 dagger
  • Espada Brasileira 2013 blade
  • Capacete Brasileiro 2013 helm
  • Defesa Brasileira 2013 helm
  • Runas de Ataque 2013 dagger
  • Runas de Protecao 2013 cape

* 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!

It may not seem like much of a release to you guys, but we've worked for a REALLY LONG TIME on phase 1, Yorumi is still working on as I type this and will still be working on it up the minute we launch tomorrow.

You can look forward to a lot of guild upgrades in Phase 2 and beyond including Guild Halls that you can build, decorate and grow together as a team, Guild renaming options, Customizable Guild banners so your group can unite under one flag, Guild name and banner displayed on your character page, special guild only challenges and more!

To kick it off J6 will have a few special Guild Battles for you this weekend. You will need to work together with your guild as a solid unit to defeat these special challenge fights. You MIGHT be able to take them on with a group of well trained strangers but I wouldn't suggest it. There will, of course, be Special drops and a merge shop to rewards your successful efforts.

4th Upholder Coming in October

October is not only AQW's 4th Birthday but also Artix Entertainment's 10th Birthday! We are planning something larger than we've ever had before for our special AE birthday event but I'll save that for later.

October is also a special time for our supporters as it's your chance to become an AQW UPHOLDER!

When AQW launched we gave everyone who supported us the chance to become an AQW Founder. Since then our Members have the chance to uphold the tradition by supporting AQW with a Membership every year around this time.

Upholders get a special Character Page Badge, a rare Star Sword (This is the year of CHAOS so... CHAOTIC STAR SWORD!) some insane bragging rights and the knowledge that they helped support AQW! There are two ways to become a 4th upholder.

  1. If you have an AQW Membership that expires ON OR AFTER November 1st, 2012 then you're in the clear. You are already a 4th Upholder and will automatically receive the badge as soon as it's made.

  2. Option 2 is simple. Just upgrade to a Member (3 months or longer) any time from October 1st to October 31st, 2012. Poof, you'll become a 4th Upholder that very second.

That's pretty much it. I will be posting a picture of the Chaos Star Sword and the badge a little closer to October.

LQS and TLPD Staying

The Limited Quantity Shop and the Talk Like A Pirate Day shops will both remain in Battleon through the weekend and possibly longer. We don't have any set dates on the shops removal, otherwise I'd just tell you when it was.

Talk Like A Pirate Day 2012

Batten down the hatches... It's a Pirate Themed Mid-Week Celebration!

Ahoy, ye lubbers! Today be International Talk Like A Pirate Day and people from all over t' world be spendin' as much o' t' day as they can stand speakin' as piratey as they know how.


T' celebration was originally created in 1995 by John Baur (Ol' Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap'n Slappy) whist playin' a game o' racquetball as such holidays often begin. For some reason or another t' internet adopted t' very silly holiday and (wantin' t' celebrate as many silly holidays as possible) AE followed suit addin' TLPD (or TLAPD for those o' you who just love your articles) t' our yearly roster o' holidays. It was such a wildly popular fan favorite that we've been keepin' t' spirit alive and doin' it every year.

This year we have a LOT o' amazin' pirate themed items includin', as always, t' Naval Commander.

We startin' doin' just one o' these but last year t' demand was so high for 2 different themes that we made two o' them. This year was t' same deal. People have been askin' for Chaos Naval Commander since we began this strange journey and thar was an equally high demand for a fiery one as well. So we proudly present t' you t' Chaos and Blazin' Naval Commanders.

They be both so amazin'ly beautiful that people be BOUND t' demand their return in years t' come but rares be rares. Get them now or miss out. We also have t' Steampunk Pirate Captain set...



...and t' much asked for Pirate Quibble rare Bank Pet.




And we be returnin' t' t' ancient tradition o' a rare TLPD House with t' Chaotic Pirate Base built off o' J6's original Secret Pirate Base house which was t' first rare TLPD House.

We've got a handful o' other great items for all players in t' shop but this year we Beleen decided t' add some quests t' Quibble for t' duration o' t' event. If you be a non-member you can complete t' first 3, but if you be an AQW Member and complete all 6 quests then you will get t' new seasonal AVAST Achievement Badge for your character page! (you get t' keep it even after your membership expires!)


This quest line be VERY difficult t' complete unless you be a passionate AQW player! You will need some DoomWood Rep and some Fishin' Rep as well as needin' t' complete some other quest chains like Rakham's Member Only quests!

Have fun!

LAG PTR Testin' Badge and Reward!

If you be one o' t' Members who helped us test t' lag fixes on t' PTR, please check out your Book o' Lore for t' LAG PTR tester badge. You'll find a shop thar with your Eternal Lag Flame Pet item reward!

92 days until Just Another Day! Arrrr!

War Maker

September 14, 2011

We See You Trollin', You're Horcin'...

You guys aren't fightin' dirty...

Because true heroes like you are commanding the Bloodtusk battlefield! Fighting the Chaos monsters wherever they are found. Paired up in parties of Trolls, Horcs, or just soloing as extraordinary, everyday heroes, you're hack-and-slashing away at each of the war meters! And if you keep pushing as hard as you are, you'll soon find yourselves face-to-tusks with a Chaorrupted war boss that NO one will expect!

Trolls take the field!

Trolls should be hitting 50% sometime tonight (they are at 48% now); the war is half-won, but the battling is NOT done! Fighting on the Troll side is ferocious, with artists putting down their paintbrushes and musicians laying aside their lutes to pick up anything with a point to really put it to those twisted jungle terrors! They will not let the Horc Chaos Lord destroy their home!

Trolls have turned from ballet postions to battle-stances!

NEWS FLASH: Horc Report!

Horcs can hit 45% tonight (they are at 41% now) if they continue ripping through the Chaorruption with as much will and stamina as they have shown so far! Battle On, Horcs! Do not let the Troll Chaos Lord take over your land and ravage your people! Your hearts are not made of easily-shattered crystal, no! Embrace the stone-strength that courses through your veins and emerge from the jungle victorious!

Using strength and a courage as solid as any stone from their mountain, the Horcs push forward!

The identity of the War Boss depends on YOU, so get your fellow Horcs (or Trolls) into the jungle and confront those Chaos monsters head-on! Samba has made some crazy-cool chaos pets as war boss drops, too! (No matter which side wins, these will drop.)

Talk Like a Pirate Day this Friday!

Yo ho, yo ho, a Pirate's gear for me! Quibble is coming back to BattleOn this Friday and he's got bountiful amounts of bad-axe booty and piratical equips for you this weekend!

His sea-worthy swag will sell for both AdventureCoins and gold doubloons, so now's a good time to loot your couch cushions and commandeer your piggy bank! His piratical backpack will hold everything from Pirated Media:

I thought Bounty Hunters went after people who pirated media...

To the Platinum Naval Commander:

Platinum Naval Commander with optional Platinum Helm

And introducing the newest Talk Like a Pirate Day armor - Shadow Pirate!

Totally NOT a ninja!

Other armors featured in this year's Talk Like a Pirate Day shop are the Legion Jolly Roger and the Jester of Torture-You-Ga! Pictures of those on Friday!

So shine your peglegs, make sure you're gear's clear (because no matter how much you love your parrot, your shoulder's NOT the poop-deck!) and polish your eyepatches, because you're going to want to look ship-shape when you set sail this Talk Like a Pirate Day! (Or else the other pirates in your party will make you walk the plank!)

Reminder!

AEXtras is still a great way to get FREE ADVENTURECOINS and even FREE BATTLEON POINTS, and with new Inventory, Bank slots and Premiere Event rares to buy there's never been a better time!
