Read on for important information

A few important tips to remember:

  • All of this year's event rare items are available individually from the Black Friday Shop in your game menu until the event leaves in December
  • The Hollowborn Collection Chest is a seasonal item and will not be included in the Dark Holiday Collection Chest.
  • In order to prevent shop abuse, the Dark Holiday 2020 Collection Chest and DeadM0g pet cannot be sold.

HollowBorn Collection Chest

The Hollowborn Evoker set, created for Black Friday by AQW Community artist, Yo Lae, is a Black Friday seasonal  collection chest. Unlock a TON of dark, deadly items for 5,000 AdventureCoins when you get the Hollowborn Chest pet (items available in the pet's shop).

The Hollowborn Collection includes:

  • Hollowborn Collection chest pet (has shop for all the gear)
  • Hollowborn Lightning pet (with quest for character page badge)

The Hollowborn Chest is seasonal, and will return every Black Friday. (Please note, the Hollowborn Chest does not receive new items each year, and will not receive the 2020 Hollowborn Nightmare farming items. You can battle the boss this weekend to unlock those.)

We’re very sorry, but we cannot offer exchanges or compensation or exchanges on IoDA choices when an item is recoloured and released for Black Friday or Cyber Monday anymore.  The IoDA program allows you to access rare items you would not otherwise have access to. Due to this, and the fact that recolours are not the same as the original items, we can no longer give any additions bonus or compensation for these items.

Harvest of Nightmares, Part 2

Our 3 Part Event Continues with Memet's Birthday Screams

Last week... you, Aurelio Voltaire, and Memet were trapped inside Aurelio Voltaire's nightmare in the first part of our three-week Harvest of Nightmares holiday event. This week, log in and battle Memet's creepy dreams as you fight to escape and return home in time for the Harvest Fest. But beware, hero! Friday the 13th may be over, but the Nightmare Realm is a dark and twisted land. You never know WHAT you'll meet... or what might decide to follow you home.

This weekend, /join memetsnightmare to begin your adventure:

  • Talk to Aurelio Voltaire to begin your quest to escape Memet's nightmare
  • Battle Eye Worms, Burning Embers, and Cyclones
  • Collect Nightmare Kibble and slay... CANNIBAL MERMAIDS?!
  • Battle your way home to return in time for the Harvest Feast, releasing next Wednesday

And don't miss the rest of this month's update. See the full release lineup here: AdventureQuest Worlds calendar.

Memet's Nightmare Rewards

We've got a host of dark and creepy rewards for all heroes coming your way this weekend! Battle monsters in /memetsnightmare to get the merge shop resources to create the Terrifier the Clown armor set and Spooky Skelly suit! 

Who is Memet?

Memet the Nightmare Moglin is the staff persona for Memet, AQWorlds' lead writer. She is the one who writes and designs the weekly releases you battle through. She is a huge fan of dark, offbeat, Lovecraftian/Geiger style art and fantasy... which is why her in-game NPC is a baku/nightmare creature. She’s crafted this nightmarish new event for you to battle through while she concentrates on celebrating leveling up during 2020. Wish her luck or happy birthday on Twitter!

New Featured Gear: Ghostly Wedding Set

They say love is eternal... and with our ghostly wedding gear, it CAN be! Find this hauntingly beautiful armor set in your Featured Gear Shop until November 30th. Then they'll leave be gone... FORVER!

Tomorrow: StarCaptain Class Updates

Verification Class Updates

Our verification classes -- Guardian, DragonLord, Star Captain, and Defender -- are unlocked by AQWorlds heroes who have also upgraded in one of our 2D, single-player games. They've been asking for years for their exclusive classes to get updates... and now the time has come!

  • Guardian Class: available to verified AdventureQuest Guardians
  • DragonLord Class: available to verified DragonFable DragonLords
  • Star Captain Class: available to verified MechQuest Star Captains
  • Defender Class: available to all of the above

Each week in November, we'll release another verification class update. Earlier this month, we updated the AdventureQuest Guardian and DragonFable DragonLord Classes! Get all the details on those class updates here and here. THIS week, we've got... the Star Captain Class update! Read on for update details: what is changing, how to get your own, and the new balance details.

Star Captain Class Overview

Welcome to the Starlord rework! Renamed to Star Captain, the class now aims to honor the tradition of choosing a GEARS University House while excelling at what Mecha Pilots are best at, one on one combat. The first three skills behave similarly, but change the focus of the class depending on which you used first, and the final skill is an all out attack that can only be activated once you’ve used the first three skills enough times.

Before there was AQWorlds, there was... MechQuest

GEARS University, the most acclaimed Mecha Pilot institution in the Solaris System. Here you will learn a wide variety of skills required to become a fully licensed Mecha Pilot, including but not limited to, Energy Blade Training, Mecha Combat, Home Economics, and Insect Extermination. And let’s not forget about our annual GEARS Games, where you face off against other Pilots to earn points for a House of your choosing. We welcome all aspiring Mecha Pilots to GEARS University and we look forward to seeing you soon, but only if you survive the entrance exam that is, enroll at mechquest.com!

Read more about the class update here.
