Beware the Sea Witch's Cuse

Join us for the finale of our Friday the 13th X Talk Like a Pirate Day event!

AHOY! The paranormal storm begun last week on Friday the 13th has only gotten fiercer. After exploring the wreckage of his sunken ship, you and Aurelio Voltaire discover his candy-loving companion, Hargoyle, has fallen prey to... The Curse of the Sea Witch! This weekend, log in and battle through a ghostly pirate ship to rescue Candy Claws and recover their lost treasure! 

If you thought Friday the 13 superstitions were scary, prepare yourself, because what you're about to face will have your hook hands shaking and your peg legs knocking! 

/join ghostship to continue your cursed holiday adventure and...

  • Battle alongside Aurelio Voltaire through a ghostly pirate ship to rescue Candy Claws
  • Fight monsters to get 36 MORE event-exclusive reward drops
  • Rock out to killer tunes as you take down spooky sailors and sea wraiths

Aurelio Voltaire Returns for Friday the 13th!

Aurelio Voltaire is the maker of music, films, books, comics, toys and... mayhem. He has appeared in almost ALL of the AQWorlds Friday the 13th events... and has become a fan-favorite for our players (not to mention beloved by goths, trekkies, and music-lovers in general). If you aren't familiar with his music or other works, you should check his site out here. This weekend, he returns to to rock out with your favorite sea chanties. This month's event also features She's Glowing, a track from his 2019 album, What Are the Oddz.

In addition to being an incredible artist, he's a downright amazing person to work with, and we're incredibly grateful for the time and energy he spent helping us with the release. (Especially since a few email gremlins sent most of his messages to our spam boxes! O_O) On behalf of the entire AQWorlds team, we want to thank Aurelio Voltaire for being a part of this special event!

In Memory of Saiacosta

Dear AdventureQuest Worlds players...

It is with our deepest regret that we write to inform you that rising star guest artist Saiacosta was killed alongside several of his family members earlier this month.

Earlier today, we received rumors of his tragic passing. We were deeply concerned because we had not heard from him since late August. Our community is very close and as you know, word travels fast. We posted a tweet which led to a response from his friends, which included a link to this news article.

What is so terrible about this is that Sai was so young and so talented. We first saw his art several years ago, as he shared it on Twitter. We’ve watched his talent grow over time until, earlier this year, we were so impressed with his skill, that we began working with him. 

For those who did not know him personally or in-game, you may remember when his first set - the Hanzo Void - finally released in-game back in January of this year. His latest sets - the Pyromancer and Underworld Naval Commanders -  released this past Friday; he built them last year and was so excited for them to be available for everyone. Unfortunately, he never got to see how many of our community members were able to enjoy his work.

This is one of the most terrible events our community has faced. It is important for us to bind together at this time and be supportive of one another, perhaps moreso now than ever. The best way to honor the memory of someone who has fallen while achieving their dreams is to follow your own. Do not wait. Take action, right now. 

We are waiting to hear back from the family, to see what we can do to help. In the meantime, we are reaching out to the community artists who worked with his so closely. We will create an in-game item, available for everyone, to honor his memory and commemorate his contributions to the game.

 


UPDATE: 

Though we discovered this heartbreaking new yesterday, the events had transpired at the beginning of the month. The funeral passed. We reached out to the family; they have been overwhelmed by your support and kind words. 

None of us can imagine what going through this is like. So we took the best and only action that we could. On behalf of you and the team, we sent a monetary gift to the family taken from the proceeds of this year's Talk Like a Pirate Day shop. The family never asked for this, but it is the least we could to help ease their incredible burden.

I am very proud of this community and how we've come together to handle this very serious, sad event.

This Weekend: Special Double Holiday Guest Event

Two weeks of Friday the 13th AND Talk Like a Pirate Day start tonight!

YARRRRR! Friday the 13th is making landfall RIGHT NOW! Back in 2012, Aurelio Voltaire sailed to Pirate’s Bay, but his ship sunk just off the coast. The wreckage has lain at the bottom of the sea, undisturbed (?!), ever since... and so has the treasure it carried. His candy-loving companion, Hargoyle, set off to recover it, and hasn't been seen since. This year, log in and battle through a sunken pirate ship alongside Aurelio Voltaire in our double holiday event: the Sea Witch's Curse

You think Friday the 13 superstitions are scary? Just wait until you battle these bloodthirsty sea monsters—THEN you’ll know the true definition of scary! And brace yourself… because the Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness is live in the Wheel of Doom Merge Shop!

This weekend, /join merrowtrench to begin a cursed underwater adventure and...

  • Battle alongside Aurelio Voltaire through a sunken pirate as you search for Candy Claws
  • Fight monsters to get 36 event-exclusive reward drops
  • Rock out to killer tunes as you take down the waterlogged merdraconian pirates 
  • Defeat a boss so heartless that mermaids can barely whisper in her presence
  • Escape with your life... if you can...
  • How lucky—you can play through all previous Friday the 13th events!*

Event reward drops include the seasonal Cursed DeckStalker set, the rare Doomed DeckStalker set, the Waterlogged Zombie armor, a boss-themed armor set, unlucky 13th pirate accessories, and the Cursed Guitar of DOOM!

Aurelio Voltaire Returns for Friday the 13th!

Aurelio Voltaire is the maker of music, films, books, comics, toys and... mayhem. He has appeared in almost ALL of the AQWorlds Friday the 13th events... and has become a fan-favorite for our players (not to mention beloved by goths, trekkies, and music-lovers in general).

Wheel of Doom Update: Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness

Last week, we talked about some upcoming changes to the Wheel of Doom, to make how Treasure Potion drops work clearer. 

Live this week: 

  • We added 200 free Treasure Potions to your account if you spun the Wheel between April 26th and September 6th, as our way of apologizing for any issues related to the Monster Priestess set's double release
  • Replaced the Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness (max stack: x5 items) with the Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness. The new item will allow you to claim as many IoDA items (you can only have 1 in your inventory at a time, but each time you redeem it, you'll be able to get another.)

Still to come: 

  • Updates to the in-game information on Treasure Potions (when they drop, how many, and why) to clear up some confusion*
  • Separating out the Wheel of Doom Merge Shop exclusive items into a separate shop so it is easier to see which items have Merge Shop and Wheel drop variants

Check this post for more information on the Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness.

PS: the Underworld Berry Mug has been added to Dage X Faith's Wedding Rares shop!

* The seasonal Talk Like a Pirate Day event maps, items, and class will arrive next Friday, September 20th.

** Treasure Potions are dropping as intended, but after reading many of your messages, we see that the information in-game could be clearer and will update it to be more explanatory.
