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)

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
- Vindicator of They Cape - 5 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!
