The Marriage of J6

A Wedding In Three Acts.

J6, AQW's Lead Artist, has worked on just about every game we have ever made or currently have in production. He's got his own faction of rabid followers, his own t-shirt on HeroMart and has drawn many of the items and almost ALL of the maps that you walk around during every new release. He is an amazingly talented artist and craftsman who has also made real life sculptures of Artix, Galanoth's Dragonslayer Helm and his own J6 Helm.

He is capable, versatile and best of all very, very fast. This dude is a machine who has never failed to meet or best any task that we've thrown at him no matter how busy he is.

J6 lives and works from Canada so we don't get to see him as often as we'd like but when he does visit, Cinazool always comes with him. She is a kind, bubbly, fun, friendly and stunningly beautiful woman and after years of dating, they have finally decided to tie the knot and you're invited! 

Artix was actually able to fly up to the great white north to attend the real wedding earlier this month, but for those of us who couldn't make it we have crafted this special in-game event for you. J6 honored me by asking me to write the event and keep all details about it from him. He wanted to be surprised. 

I was so stressed about making it funny that I got writers block and went through four complete re-writes. Everyone on the AQW team chipped in on this one and I even managed to trick J6 into doing the art for Captain Stubbing and the Love Goat map.

If you complete the event, you will be awarded the J6 Wedding Badge in your Book of Lore (not a character page badge) and you will also unlock all of the Member, Non-Member and AC items in J6's Wedding Shop. You will also find a lot of new drops on the various goats found in the release and on Filthy McGee.

As usual there are the stock wedding items like the Bounty Hunter's Berry Mug, the Silver Eternal Flame, Cinazool's Wedding Bouquet and some others but we also have some brand new armors, helms, back items, weapons and pets in this special event.

Congrats, J6 and Cinazool. May you have the best of all possible lives together.

Four NEW Rare Houses in J6's House Shop!

Click the "Rare House Shop" button in Battleon to check out J6's four NEW rare houses! These aren't just ANY new houses, either. They have a secret, owner-only entrance, so that no one can enter unless YOU are home! If you want your friends to gain entrance, you'll need to go to your /house and then they will need to /goto YOU!

Guild Renaming is LIVE and FREE this weekend!

Check your Guild menu to see how to re-name it! This weekend only, Guild re-naming is FREE!  On Monday it will begin costing AdventureCoins. Be warned, if your client is cached, your name change may not appear immediately.

Vindicator of They Leaves Oct 12th!

It's been almost one year since we did our special They Might Be Giants AQW Birthday event and as we mentioned when we released it... we only have the rights to use this stuff in AQW for a year. Our contract with TMBG expires on October 12th, so on that day the event will be locked forever. No more rep farming quests, no more special songs that they wrote and performed just for AQW and no more Vindicator of They Class.

Time is growing short. If you haven't had the chance to earn the Vindicator class and items, remember that you still have a few weeks to buy it from Itzachi in Battleon.

83 days until Just Another Day

Gravelyn Grows Impatient

Shadows are stirring inside the Empress' Fortress!

With Chaos on the move and the Alliance not advancing in their crusade to overcome it, Empress Gravelyn is growing impatient. She needs to move, and soon! This Friday, you will be summoned to her throne room in /Shadowfall.

She'll send you on quests into the heart of her Fortess AND through the rest of Lore to prove your allegiance! (... or to see why Good is ineffective! Will you remain true to your King?)

Power Gem Newsletter Info!

It sounds like a lot of you are looking forward to getting all of that shiny Power Gem gear that Twilly has in Battleon!

New features often come with bugs, and not all of them can be caught without a wide pool of testers. (That's you!) Here are some things to be aware of:

If you have a confirmed email but aren't receiving the newsletter:

The issue is most likely that your email provider blocked the individual message. (It might have been flagged as spam accidentally.) You can sign-up with new email and you'll start getting the newsletter again!

To make sure you DO get the newsletters, Captain Rhubarb is going to set up a "Send me a sample newsletter" link to make sure that you receive it. The next week, you'll get an actual newsletter with a Power Gem link!

If you get a message that the Game Database Server is unreachable:

You may be clicking an old link, or your email might not be confirmed. That just means the data you used was invalid. Make sure your email is confirmed and try again when the next newsletter reaches you.

If you get a newsletter which has code instead of a link:

Please post a screenshot on the forum showing that error. In the meantime, Megalops is going to look into what could be causing that.

Current Promotion Reminders!

Artix Gamecards are still in stock at US Target locations! Redeem your card before August 31st, 2012, to unlock the Bullseye Spear bonus item AND Artix Points! They can be used to purchase AQWorlds membership or Adventure Coins!

Can you get to 100% for the Paragon Set?

He sees how hard his followers have battled through this war, and he wants to reward your valiant efforts! But don't think that because he's giving you a gift, that he is any less Evil...

Sword of the Legion Shop News!

The Sword of the Legion, a reward from The Stranger's quest in /evilwardage, will unlock a shop on Dage's NPC in the future! He's not sure what to put in there yet, so let him know on Twitter what you'd like to see!

TMBG on Conan O'Brian

... and our player count soared?

Last night, one of our most favorite music bands of all time (and former AQW guest), They Might Be Giants performed on the Conan O'Brian show. For no apparent reason, our online count suddenly jumped. I was told on my twitter that several servers were reporting as FULL. Which was expecially weird for 11pm at night! We where not mentioned anywhere (that we know of)... does anyone have any idea why this happened?

Talking about TMBG, the band is officially on tour! ... and the opening act is Jonathan Coulton (who also appeared in a previous AQW event.) You can see their official tour schedule at the TMBG's official website. Many of us from the lab will be going to their show here in Tampa, FL.

Shhhhh.... secrets.  

You have a big release coming tonight in AQWorlds, but first, I would like to share a few things I have secretly been working on. 1.) The AQ3D Project 2.) Planet Romero in MechQuest (along side Korin & the MQ Team) 3.) Valentines day "Love Story" for AQWorlds with Mia J. Park (read the Jan 9th, 2012 post here) and 4.) ...well, you know what they say. A picture is worth one-hundred thousand slain undead minions!

The Collector, Part II

The They Might Be Giants / AQW 3rd Birthday Event Continues!

The second part to our special birthday event (featuring the music and amazingly distorted voice talents of John and John from They Might be Giants) continues tonight!

This week we are adding three new areas (including the member only dino-caves), tons of new quests, cutscenes, monsters, monster drops, new house items, new AC Rare items as promised, and a new Achievement! If you played through the entire event then you already know that we left you, young Drakath, John F. and John L. hurtling through time and space.

You could use a little practice controlling the Collector's Vigilette.

NEW CLASS: Vindicator Of They!

Also, as promised we have released a new class especially crafted for the They Might Be Giants event... The Vindicator Of They!

Here are a few fun facts about this new class: Every skill (other than Auto Attack) references a They Might Be Giants song or line of lyrics. Three of the skills have new battle effect graphics that were designed JUST for this class setting it apart from every other class in AQW & finally, we only have the rights to the event for 1 year so this class WILL go rare when the rest of the event leaves.


You can earn this item from the Token daily quests in the event (Members can earn tokens twice as fast!), the use the tokens to purchase the class, helm, sword and cape from the Token Shop.

If you would spend ACs to have the class RIGHT NOW, you can buy the AC version of the class from the Johns in the Collection map or from Itzachi in Battleon, but remember that you can only buy the CLASS with ACs. If you want the rest of the set then you'll have to do those dailies.

To help you rank up the class a little faster Itzachi will also be selling CLASS POINT BOOSTS for ACs and since we're tossing that in we might as well include the REPUTATION BOOSTS also. Once you equip and use these Boosts, you will double the rate that they increase for a while.

If you're interested in reading more about the new class, you can read the SKILL BREAKDOWN that I posted yesterday.

Higher Level Adventurer Enhancements!

A lot of you have reached higher levels faster that we gave you credit for. Due to server issues we had not planned to release any of the higher level Enh until next week, but we don't want to leave you in the cold so we will be releasing level 41-45 Adventurer Enh. You can find those in the ENHANCEMENTS BUTTON in Battleon.

ATTENTION TREASURE HUNTERS!

We have added some Mogloween costume armors to the Treasure Chests today. A total of 6 new spooky items! Good luck!

Special Thanks To Everyone!

AQW has only one Birthday a year and every time we try and out-do ourselves and I think we really kicked it round the moon this time. I'd like to thank the entire AQW team for putting in extra effort, coming in on days off, staying late and generally owning face on this event.

I'd like to thank They Might Be Giants for not only allowing us to bring them into AdventureQuest Worlds but also for all of their creative input when creating the event that lead from a few rough ideas to a full event with insane voice acting, evil doppelgangers, time traveling aliens and one of our very favorite bands ever. These guys had their own stuff going on... tours, shows and their own lives... but were never too busy to make or take a call to work on the event. It was really, truly great working with them. In real life they are funny, fun, down-to-earth, creative and passionate about what they do (which is a little bit of everything).

Real life story: We were about to get last week's event up for testing and I was on the phone with John F. asking him when would be a good time for the guys to run through the event so they could see what we were doing to them. After tossing around some times, I mentioned that it was my Birthday. John F said "Oh man! Well, we break for Birthdays," and shifted his entire schedule around so we could test the next morning just so I could go to dinner with my wife that night.

Finally, I want to thank you guys. If you consider the hundreds of thousands of players who have taken part in the event so far, this has been the BIGGEST BIRTHDAY PARTY any of us have ever been invited to. I've said it before but here it is again... you are the game. Without players, especially fantastic ones like you guys, a game is nothing more than a bunch of code that nobody ever sees. Thanks each and every one of you for helping to make this our biggest and best birthday yet!

NEXT WEEK: MOGLOWEEN 2011

As promised, next week we will be releasing the brand new 2011 chapter of the Mogloween Storyline with a bunch of new surprises, monsters, seasonal rares and (If Zhoom is right) The ability to go to other players houses and Trick or Treat!

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.)

Vindicator Of They Class

PART 2 Of the They Might be Giants / AQW Birthday Event!

We have a lot of surprises waiting for you in the conclusion of The Collector like a new achievement, a new member only area and challenge fight, a bunch of new drops and even new items added to the AC Rares shop but nothing is more highly anticipated than the release of the They Might Be Giants theme class, the Vindicator of They!

Here are a few fun facts about this new class: Every skill (other than Auto Attack) references a They Might Be Giants song or line of lyrics. Three of the skills have new battle effects graphics that were designed JUST for this class setting it apart from every other class in AQW & finally, we only have the rights to the event for 1 year so this class WILL go rare when the rest of the event leaves.

Now let's get into the wrought armor and taker it for a test drive.

VINDICATOR OF THEY SKILL SET

This class was designed to be a single target or solo class. It will work best in groups like every other class, but it can handle a fight on its own and it likes it that way.

It's an armored caster class so I used INT Enhancements but you might want to try HYBRID or HEALER and see how those work for you. If you encounter any issues with this class, it will be managing your Mana... at least until you hit Rank 10. :)

Now let's go over the skills.

AUTO ATTACK

2 second cooldown.

A basic attack, taught to all adventurers.

As I mentioned above, mana is the issue at the heart of this class. The good news is that it receives mana for every hit delivered and every hit taken so stay in close and go crazy.  

SUPER TASTER

15 mana, 5 second cooldown.

Summons a Super Taster to bite your foe, causing a DoT and slowing your enemy for 6 seconds.


This is your first and least expensive skill. Once you get your healing attack it's hard to remember to use this one but you MUST NOT FORGET IT. The Damage Over Time is one of the most powerful in the game and the haste debuff is something you never want to be without.

I JUST WANT YOUR HALF

20 mana, 3 second cooldown.

Take a small amount of you foe's life force and heal yourself for a small amount.

Notice that the cooldown is only 3 seconds on this one? That will cause you to want to spam it but don't fall for it. You will eat your mana and be left with nothing in no-time. It is the wise warrior who knows when to apply a self-heal.

WE WANT A ROCK

20 mana, 10 second cooldown.

Petrify your opponent for 4 seconds but applies a DoT to you.


Use this skill at your own risk. The ability to turn most monsters into stone is a nice one to have, especially when you want to deal out the last few seconds of damage in peace but the price may not be worth paying. It's not that big of a deal since you can heal the DoT away but again, it is a question of how you want to spend your mana.

I'VE GOT A FANG  / HOT CHA

Rank 4 Passive

Increase Damage Output by 20%

Increase Haste by 20%

Special passives here. Ranking up the class unlocks the ability to attack faster than ever before while dishing out 20% more damage. In case you've never read one of these skill break-downs before 20%/20% are HUGE buffs to the class.

MASS OF INCANDESCENT GAS

30 mana, 10 second cooldown.

Create a tiny SUN causing massive damage. Applies a DoT and reduces the damage the enemy does for 10 seconds.


Ok, let's go over this one slowly. First, while the mana cost is high, the cooldown is only 10 seconds so it is possible to use it very often. Second, it deals a massive blow to your enemy. Third, it ALSO lays a DoT (Damage Over Time) on them leeching them for even more damage. Fourth and finally, it ALSO debuffs the enemy reducing the amount of damage they can do for TEN full seconds.

Frankly, this skill is like winning the lottery, falling in love and learning you can fly all in the same day.

CAN'T KEEP JOHNNY DOWN

Rank 10 Passive

Randomly, on hit, fully refills your mana.

After playing with this class for a while we decided to add a Rank 10 passive to it to help with Mana flow. The reward for getting your Vindicator Of They all the way to rank 10 is that your mana will completely refill itself from time to time.

There is something else you should know about this skill. Since it's a utility skill instead of an attack we've coded it to happen about TEN TIMES MORE OFTEN than the other rank 10 passive you've seen.

WHERE DO I GET IT?!

As usual Itzachi in Battleon will be offering the class for 2000 ACs for those who feel that they can't wait, but for the patient there will be an EARNED version of the class that you will be able to get from John and John in the Collection map. As you can see in the images above, there is also a matching Helm, Sword and Cloak that you will ONLY be able to earn. You can earn these items by collecting Tokens of Vindication from daily quests in the map.

Since Members have a daily set aside JUST for them they will be able to earn all of these items in HALF the time and if you Upgrade this month you will also be able to call yourself a 3rd Upholder!

Itzachi will also be offering a Class Rank Boost for ACs in her shop to help you get to rank 10 double quick.

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.) 

NEXT WEEK: MOGLOWEEN 2011

As promised, next week we will be releasing the brand new 2011 chapter of the Mogloween Storyline with a bunch of new surprises, monsters, seasonal rares and (If Zhoom is right) The ability to go to other players houses and Trick or Treat!

They Might Be EPIC Rares!

AQWorlds' 3rd Birthday Event Rare Items!

When we invited They Might Be Giants to do AQWorlds' 3rd birthday blowout this year, we knew that the equips that were released alongside them had to be bigger than gigantic... they had to be universally EPIC! (The Universe is bigger than a normal giant, but only slightly bigger than the Giants They Might Be.)

We will have an AC shop as well as TWO merge shops! One will require Tokens of Vindication, which drop from daily quests. Members will have two daily quests available to them, while non-members can do one a day.*. The other will require various Super-Fan Tokens that the monsters will drop.

Here's a first look for many of you (unless you follow us on Twitter!) at some of the time-bending, space-rending, universe-ending equips that we will be releasing on Friday during the event!

* Members can earn up to 2 Tokens of Vindication a day, which lets them get items faster!

  • Universe Armor - 800 ACs
  • Celestial Hair - 100 ACs
  • Universe Hood - 100 ACs
  • Galactic Hackers - 175 ACs

  • Particle Armor - 10 Tokens of Vindication (member)
  • Particle Armaments - 6 Tokens of Vindication (member)
  • Particle Pack - 3 Tokens of Vindication (non-member)

  • Paper Bag Head - 6 Tokens of Vindication (member)
  • Hovering Sombrero Cape - 2 Tokens of Vindication (non-member)
  • Chicken And Ice Cream Helm - 1 Super Fan Swag Token C (non-member)

We have MANY more rockin' rares (only available in-game for ONE year!) that we haven't shown you! You'll just have to log in and battle your way through the Collector's prison to earn these awesome equips!

Vindicator of They Class and Set!

They Might Need a Hero, and YOU definitely need a new class! Save John and John, battle your way through the daily quests they offer, and take down the obviously over-rated opponents (a win will up your Rare Score!), and you'll be well on your way to becoming a Vindicator of They! (Class will not release until NEXT Friday.)

The Vindicator of They non-member Class will be sold for 2000 ACs at Itzachi in BattleOn OR you can earn it by stocking up 90 Tokens of Vindication! The rest of the set will be available in the Tokens of Vindication Merge shop THIS Friday!

  • Vindicator of They Class - 2,000 ACs OR 90 Tokens of Vindication
  • Vindicator of They Helm - 15 Tokens of Vindication
  • Vindicator of They Blade - 45 Tokens of Vindication

Many members of the Artix Entertainment team (from more than just the AQW team) have been hard at work on this 3rd birthday event for weeks! And THIS Friday you'll see Part 1 of the biggest AQWorlds event with our BIGGEST guests ever!

Now that October has actually arrived, the weather is starting to cool down, the days are getting shorter and it's Upholder Time in AQW!

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.)

Don't get sick on all that Moglweeny candy!
