Return to the Mirror Realm

Survive the Chaos of the RedDeath Swamp!

When the world is out of balance, Chaos gains the upper hand! This Friday, return to the Mirror Realm for the 3rd installment of the Xing and Xang Chaos Saga. Mirror Drakath needs your help to restore harmony to his realm and yours, and there's only element out of alignment: Evil Xing and Good Xang, the Chaos Twins!

Lore needs balance between Good with Evil!

Battle through the RedDeath Swamp, the mirror version of Greenguard Forest, to gather the resources necessary to solve the problem of the swapped Chaos Twins once and for all... but be careful! Outside the Mirror Realm, Evil Xing and Evil Xang are racing to build their Chaos Beast, and any failure will reflect VERY badly on them!

New Gear in the Treasure Map Shop!

TreasureHunters, assemble in-game this Friday! We've got a treasure map to a shop full of incredible loot hidden somewhere inside AQWorlds, and if you can find it, you get ALL of the gear (and any gear we add in the future) for free! 

Read more details on how the Treasure Map works here!

Talk to Cleric Joy in Battleon or Valencia in BattleonTown to buy the Treasure Map for a one-time cost of 2000 AventureCoins, then use the clue it gives in the item description to find a shop hidden in-game full of 0 AC gear only YOU can access! At this point, we have over 6500 ACs worth of gear in the Treasure Map shop, and all of it is 0ACs for free storage! 

NEW: Shadowpiercer and Shadowslasher armors!

Find the Shadowpiercer Rogue and Shadowslasher Warrior armor and helm from Tyronius... IF you can find the location of the Treasure Map's shop!

You also get the following gear when you find the shop:

Dragon Rises Triumphant

The Royal Wedding's Chaotic Conclusion!

Good King Alteon has been fighting Chaorruption since AQWorlds began, and THIS week, you will see how much of an effect Chaos has had on him! Log in now to play the conclusion of the Royal Wedding event, the rise of Swordhaven's Chaos Beast... and the beginning of the most Chaotic chapter in AQWorlds' history!

Chaotic DragonFORCE!

We had planned to finish the wedding release in one week last week. This week's storyline release IS a bit shorter than usual, but had we not split last week's release into two parts, we would not have been able to put nearly as much effort into this week's cutscenes as we did. I'd rather do them right than do them quickly! (Especially when the reactions to the release have been so emotional!)

Ghost, our lead animator, drew his reaction to what he did this week:

Sad Ghost felt ALL the feels!

Make sure to tweet your reactions to the storyline to @ArtixKrieger and @Alina_AE so we can keep track of how many feels you have felt! You can also share your reactions on the AQW Facebook page or our forum!

The new loading screen is live, too!

In addition to finishing LAST week's release THIS week, we also released:

Enjoy the beginning of the REAL Chaos in Swordhaven... and the rest of Lore!

Week of OMG!!!

We Have SO MUCH For You This Week

I'm going to keep this short, because the team has got a LOT of work to do if we're going to get everything out on time! Make sure to check out the current Reminders Design Notes post to stay up to date.

Can't handle the chaos... or so many releases!

Monday, September 30th

That is TODAY!

  • Later tonight, the limited time gear in the Wheels of Doom and Destiny merge shops will be leaving... permanently. If you haven't gotten your "Skulls and Doom" or "Ancient Skulls and Doom" blades yet, now's the time!

Merge your Fortune Potions from the Wheels to create these blades! 

  • Check out our Pumpkin Carving Contest! Read Beleen's Design Notes for more information.

Tuesday, October 1st

5th Upholder begins! Upgrade your account to get a sweet character page badge, access to FIVE Star Swords, and all the Legend-only perks you always get! (Like a free spin on the Wheel of Doom or Destiny, pets, exclusive storylines, and more!) If you already have an upgraded account and the upgrade will be active - or expires - on November 1st, then congratulations, you're already a 5th Upholder!

Legion Star Sword not pictured.

If you were an Upholder before and lost access to your Star Sword, never fear! You'll be able to go into your Book of Lore Upholder badge and access the shop to get it once more! We've had a LOT of people ask us to do this over the years, and now it is finally happening!

If you supported AQWorlds from the start as a Founder, you'll be able to access ALL of the Founder dragon pets... including this year's Green Armored and Galactic Armored Dragon pets! 

Wednesday, October 2nd

Treasure Map time! Talk to Cleric Joy in Battleon to purchase a Treasure Map. Then use the clue in the item's description to find the location of the treasure hidden somewhere in-game.... and access ALL of the gear we've EVER added to the shop, plus the new Royal Dragoon set!
