Dage has a surprise for you, heroes! Spin the Wheel of Doom or Destiny tonight for a chance to get Dage's Dark Key! On May 7th, one person* with the Dark Key weapon will be selected... and they will receive a custom-made, personalized weapon for them from Dage the Evil!

Legends can battle their way to the watery home of the Chaos Kraken in Bonebreak Deep to retrieve the incredibly valuable treasure stolen from Gustav duGrog! Fair warning: this challenge fight is one you'll want to dive into with an entire party!

All players can take on monsters in the Skullpunch map to get resources to create 1 of over 40 Naval-themed tophats! These top hats are available to ALL players, though Legend versions will have an extra bonus to undead monsters!

The Wheel of Doom Speaks

Find Out When the Wheel Gives Rewards!

Each time you spin the Wheel of Doom and get a bonus item, you'll get a new message in your chat window telling you exactly what you got! You will not see a message if you get the regular Wheel drops (the 100% 1hr XP Boost and Doom Draught rewards).

And if anyone else on your server has received one of our rare 1% Wheel of Doom drops, you'll also see a message about that! (You will NOT see messages about other hero's rewards unless it is a 1% Treasure drop.)

We will be keeping an eye on the servers this weekend to see how often those messages appear. Can you help us keep count of how many times you saw Heroes get Treasure items from the Wheel?

Doom for Bugs!

Over the course of the past week, Yorumi has been working on fixing display bugs in the Wheel of Doom. You should no longer see pop-ups for Wheel drops you did not really get!

Please let us know if this visual glitch (caused by lag) is still happening! If you have any doubts about what you DID get from the Wheel, just check the message the Wheel says in your chat window. That will always tell you the correct reward you got!

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!

Epic Item Drops - Low chance to drop

Swaggy says: "May the odds AND the evens be ever in your favor!"

Some of these awesome items CAN be found elsewhere in-game, but are CRAZY-HARD to get as monster drops. Now your chances of getting them are doubled (or tripled!)! Other items, like the MechaJouster, are going to be low drop rates, but will be VERY worth it if you can get your hands on them!

Donation Maker

August 21, 2013

Donate Your Unused Items

Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness!

There is a .1% chance to get the Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness! If THAT drops from the Wheel of Doom for you, follow the instructions in the item description on how to contact us. If you receive the Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomenessdrop from the Wheel of Doom, you'll find an email address to contact us. 

Generous heroes can donate their Rare items to a pool of gear kept in Swaggy's Hidden Chest of Wonders. This is the ONLY way rare items will EVER return to the game. 1 donated item 1 1 Ultimate Item winner.

Once a month, we'll take all of the Ultimate Item winners and let them choose one of the rare items from the Chest of Wonders! The SUATMR donation prizes Cysero put together are the beginning of the list, but many heroes want to add items to it! Stay tuned for an updated list soon.

Want to donate one of your rare items? Email your username and the list of items you'd like to donate to: DonationHero@battleon.com! 

Once we hear from you and verify that you have the item, we'll select a donated item from the pool of gear donated by your fellow heroes.

You asked for changes, and we're making them!

We love all our players, and listen to your feedback every day in-game, on Twitter, Facebook, and the forum... then change our plans based on what YOU say!

After last night's post about the new Wheel of Doom, we got a lot of comments... and a LOT of questions! Read on for the answers.

We are NOT bringing back Rare items!

Each item released in AQWorlds has a rarity tag. Different tags have different meanings. See the chart below to learn the different between a "rare" item, an "unknown" item, and more.

Rarity in AQWorlds

ONLY past Quibble items  with an "Unknown" rarity are returning. Items marked "RARE" are perma-rare and no more of them will ever be added to the game. 

(We didn't plan for ANY of Quibble's items to go rare... EVER... but many of you love your rare items, so we will ONLY return "Unknown/Unassigned" Quibble items to the Wheel of Doom.)

Example of a Rare Item that will not return

You can find out what kind of rarity an item has by clicking on it in your inventory, then looking at the item's details.

Find the rarityThis is a "Rare" item will NEVER become available again.

Raising the Gold Cap!

Because you'll be able to get gold from the Wheel of Doom, we're going to increase the gold cap. We're also investigating how to make gold received from the Wheel of Doom quest ignore the gold cap so you can keep all the gold you get no matter what!

Gold rewards from the Wheel of Doom have been adjusted. The new reward amounts are listed in the Wheel of Doom Design Notes post!

Cycling Quibble's "Unknown" rarity items in and out!

Every few months, the "Unknown rarity" items will change out to keep their quantity in-game low. Check the Wheel regularly to see which items are currently on the reward list!

All items in Quibble's current shop are rare!

Yup! If you purchased an item from Quibble's current shop, it will automatically turn rare by the end of the day. Quibble and his shop are still here, though! Next Friday, he'll get the DragonKhan Rider, the Legion Raptor Dragonrider, and MAYBE the Archfiend Dragon Rider armors!

Free Spins for the Wheel of Doom!

Everyone loves to get prizes... and that's why we're giving Legends a free spin EVERY DAY that their upgrade is active! ALL players will get a free spin once a month!

Spin the Wheel of Doom

Test your luck to get DOOM-filled rewards!

Deep in the forests near Doomwood, there sits a VERY ominous Wheel and an undead moglin in a top hat. This Friday, you'll find Swaggy, Moglin of Delight, and his Wheel of Doom standing in the shadows when you /join doom!

Wheel of doom

How do I spin?

Talk to Swaggy to buy a Doom Ticket for 200 AdventureCoins or a Stack of 10 Doom Tickets for 1500 AdventureCoins to spin the wheel. If you're a Legend, you can access the Legendary Wheel of Doom quest, which gives you one FREE spin every day your account upgrade is active! You can earn free AdventureCoins by watching ads from Ballyhoo or completing AExtras offers, too.

Wheel of Doom prize tiers

EVERY time you spin, you get at least THREE prizes - 20,000 gold, a 1 hour XP Boost, and a Doom Strength Potion - plus a chance for VERY special EXTRA prizes!

100% chance to get:

  • 10,000 gold
  • 1 hour XP Boost
  • Doom Strength Potion

10-90% chance to get:

  • Armors
  • Helms
  • Weapons
  • Accessories
  • Pets
  • Gear available for limited time

1% chance to get:

  • Class (give us suggestions of what classes you'd like the wheel to have!)
  • Past Quibble items ("Unknown" rarity only. Items marked "RARE" are perma rare and no more of them can ever be added to the game.)

.1% chance to get:

  • Ultimate Donation Item of EPICNESS!

From time to time, new gear made JUST for Swaggy will be added to the Wheel of DOOM that you can ONLY get when you spin. Gear like that will have a 20-50% chance to drop.

Wait!!! Quibble gear is returning?!!?

Yes... but only SOME of Quibble's gear will be added to the Wheel of Doom, and not in the exact same way:

  • No Quibble items tagged as Rare will EVER be added to the Wheel of Doom unless donated by another player. 
  • Any item from a Quibble shop will have "Doom" added onto its name. We know our rare-hunters value their exclusive gear, and this will let you prove that YOU got the gear from the original shop!
  • There is only a 1% chance to get each Quibble item from spinning the Wheel of Doom.

Little-known fact: when we first introduced Quibble Coinbiter's items a few years ago, they were all supposed to return at a later date, in future zones. But so many of you loved your rares that you BEGGED Artix to keep them from returning. So we didn't add any of those items into the zones Quibble preceded.

We have always said that SOME of Quibble's gear could return in the future... so a select list of the gear with "unknown" or "unassigned" rarity tags will be added to the Wheel of Doom.

Quibble's Gear Available from the Wheel of Doom:

  • Doom Chaos Symbiote Armor
  • Doom Naval Commander set
  • Doom Prismatic Composer Armor
  • Doom Celestial Sandknight
  • Doom Rotting Naval Commander set
  • Doom Shiden Bardiche
  • Doom Pirate Captain set
  • Doom Red Star Sword
  • Doom Toga
  • Doom Pirate Captain's Elegant Hat
  • Doom Open Celestia Sandwings
  • Doom Celestial Sandsword
  • Doom ExoKatana Binsoku
  • Doom Souleater Warrior
  • Doom Iced Jester
  • Doom Iced Foule-Bordeau Helm
  • Doom Soul Ripper
  • Doom Star Slasher
  • Doom Lycan Transformation
  • Doom Vampire Transformation
  • Doom Celestial Sandknight Helm

Donating rare items to the Wheel of Doom

In the near future, we'll make it so that YOU can donate some of your RARE gear (like Alpha Pirate) to the Wheel of Doom!* When we began the Shut Up and Take My Rares contest, we had an INCREDIBLE amount of people offering to donate their rare gear.

So once we add this feature, instead of giving people prizes from Cysero's inventory, once a month we'll take a rare item one of your fellow heroes gives us, remove it from THEIR inventory, and add it to the Wheel of Doom. When that happens, we'll announce who the generous donor is and write a short history of their time in AQWorlds in our Design Notes... then add their name to a plaque in the Hall of Heroes!

Of course, this does mean the end of the SHUT UP AND TAKE MY RARES monthly contest but don't worry, all the gear will be in the Wheel of Doom meaning that you don't have to wait a month to play and there will be a LOT more than one winner per month! 

Let us know what you think!

We always want to make as many of you as happy as we can, so let us know what you think about the Wheel of Doom!** Tell me on Twitter, the forum, and Facebook

* Heromart items cannot be donated, as people can just re-buy their gear from the shop.
** Or if we accidentally included any rare gear in the list.

Changes incoming!

Look for a detailed post later today for new information and more explanations about the Wheel of Doom system. Remember:

  • NOTHING tagged as rare will ever be re-created in the game.
  • We'll define what the different item rarities mean ("rare" vs "unassigned")
  • Tell you how to find rarities for your items
  • Gold cap being increased
  • Cycling Doom Quibble gear in and out of the Wheel of Doom's rewards

Monday Syllabus

Back to Schooling Monsters!

Happy Monday! Some of our fellow heroes have returned to School today (buff those INTELLECT and WISDOM stats, smarty pants!)… but AdventureQuest Worlds has a bunch of monsters that need schooling, too! We have lots to cover in today’s Design Notes… so let’s begin =D

GameStop and Go!

Do you live in the United States and have a GameStop nearby? Do you want to unlock epic features like all the other Legends in AQWorlds? AND you want an exclusive item set to show off your Legendary status and make the noobs jealous? GREAT—and here’s how!

Combo Breaker set for GameStop

Due to an overwhelming demand, we have extended the exclusive GameStop offer until Sunday, August 25. So when you’re out shopping for back-to-school items, swing by a GameStop and:

  • Purchase an Artix Entertainment Game Card
  • Return back home with your glorious plastic artifact
  • Become a Legend by following these instructions
  • Unlock the Combo Breaker Armor Set
  • Become the (AQ)World’s greatest Combo Breaker
  • Show off your C-c-c-combo Breaking Screen Shots on my Twitter and the AQWorlds Facebook Page!

Get up and go to the GameStop nearest you and become the greatest hero—or villain!—you were destined to become!

Wheel of Doom Coming Soon

Whispers amongst Yulgar’s Inn hint at something called the Wheel of Doom… which is said to award heroes and villains with super-hard-to-obtain items… including some that are no longer available. O____O

Wheel of Doom

Wheely important information about the Wheel of Doom will roll out later today. Stay tuned for more info AND the release date!

Friday’s Release

Swordhaven is a safe haven to heroes of all levels… but has recently acquired Chaos! This Friday evening, it’s up to YOU and your friends to defend Swordhaven from the Chaorruption seeping in.

Swordhaven battle 2

Gear up in your favorite Quibble Armor Set, sharpen your Empowered Magus Greatsword, and prepare for the impending Chaos arriving Friday night. And… if my ears haven’t been Chaorrupted… I heard news of Dragon Khan, Legion Raptor, and MAYBE Archfiend DragonRider armors coming to Quibble next week. *crosses fingers*

No Featured Artist Shop on Tuesday

Say WHAAAT? No Featured Artist Shop tomorrow? Yup. It’s true. 

Artist Showcase Shop

All good things must come to an end… but not forever, I assure you! With all of our new exciting developments in the works—Battle Gems, Guilds, Wheel of Doom, DragonCon, and the next Lord of Chaos—you favorite AQW artists are hard at work creating new items for your new adventures.

Tuesday’s Featured Artist Shops will resume in late September, which is only a few weeks away! Who do you think the next Featured Artist will be? Let’s see if you can guess correctly on my Twitter!

Until next time, Battle On hero!

xoxo Beleen

Monday Diary

So much fun all week long!

Dear hero, it’s Monday again! And that means it’s time for another Monday Write Up. Allow me to highlight all the fun happening this week in the world’s favorite online adventure game, AdventureQuest Worlds!

Tuesday’s Featured Artist Shop

For the past few months, we have seen the amazing artistic abilities of AQWorlds’ artists in the Featured Artist Showcase Shop. Last week we were blessed with Ven du Viioletmist’s special items, including the Rare Knight of the Leviasea Armor set.

Knight of the Leviasea Armor Set

Come tomorrow afternoon, Ven’s shop will disappear to make room for our newest volunteer artist, Roroth! This Drow artist will showcase elite armors, helms, weapons, and more from his personal stash of Drow-exclusive items.

Sneak Peek at Roroth's Featured Artist Showcase Shop Items

I have the pleasure of meeting with Roroth later on this evening at the local AdventureBucks Coffee shop. Since not much is known about Roroth, I thought I could get him to tell me all his Drow secrets in exchange for a Venti Trobblechino! Mmmmm!

AdventureBucks Coffee

I will fill you in all the details in tomorrow Design Notes post… as soon as I finish my Trobblechino, that is =D

Friday’s Shadow Sorcerer Armor Set

Running low on AdventureCoins? They say that 2 things are better than 1… so how epic are 12 things in 1 sweet deal?!

Shadow Sorcerer Set

Also arriving on Friday….

More Quibble Rares and the grand reopening of Swordhaven Castle is set to launch Friday at sundown!

New game release coming on Friday

Quibble knows you need the best gear to defeat the next Lord of Chaos, so he specially ordered brand new weapons, armors, and helms just for you and your friends. With Quibble’s items at your side (and in your grasp), head to Swordhaven to celebrate the kingdom’s brand new redesign! But with Chaos ready to crash the celebration, it will be up to you to save the day.

The celebrations will continue outside of Swordhaven, too. A special first-of-its-kind Pinjat Pinang party will ensue Friday evening. This unique tradition is one of the oldest in Indonesian history and will soon go down in AQWorlds history as well!
