This Weekend: Attack on Akiba!

The Shogun of Shadows has come to take over Akiba

"You are destined to rule... Yokai Isle should be yours... Listen to me, and I will show you the path to victory..." So said the whispers that called the Shogun of Shadows to war. This weekend, battle alongside Emperor Daisho and Princess Miko as they fight to defend their home and save their people. 

Shogun of Shadow's War Features:

  • Battle the Shadow Samurai to defend Yokai Isle
  • Defeat monsters and turn in quests to raise the war meter
  • Unlock bonus war medal and reward farming quests at 25, 50, and 75%
  • Unlock the war boss fight at 100%

Our return to Akiba and Yokai Isle is also a return to the Chaos storyline; the Shogun of Shadows is an enemy Princess Miko and her father, the Emperor have faced before (off-screen... this is the first time your hero has encountered him). This time, the Shogun is armed with new powers and a creature that could help him destroy the Akiban dynasty!

Raise the water meter to unlock rare 0 AC pets:

  • 25%: Shadow Tanuki pet
  • 50%: Giant Kijimuna pet 
  • 75%: Shadow Kitteh pet

Featured Gear Shop: Yami no Samurai Set

For our heroes who ally with Evil, the Darkness, and the shadows... we have an all-new featured gear set for you! Find the Yami no Samurai (the Samurai of Darkness) set in your Featured Gear Shop until August 31st.

Moglin Kickstarter is LIVE!

Help us make our dream of moglin plush a reality!

Greetings and salutations friend... we're about to do something crazy together. Want to join us?

You've had moglins at your side in our video games. Now, help us bring Moglins to the real world!

Moglins like Twilly, Zorbak, Twig, & Quibble are magical forest creatures born in our video game worlds. Back our Moglin Kickstarter to help them escape and join you in the real one.

Of course, each Moglin also comes with a code to unlock an in-game pet of itself in multiple Artix Entertainment video games.

Unlock the Master of Moglins CLASS in AQWorlds with the $120 Ultimate Moglin Collection. The Class art shown above is a KickStarter exclusive. (You will still be able to get the class by purchasing all 12 moglins from HeroMart after the KickStarter ends, but the art will be different.)

Oh! Our new Artix Games Launcher lets you play our games (with your moglins) without needing a browser or the Flash plugin.

Put a Moglin on your desk to cheer you on. They’ll keep you company while writing, drawing, coding, and gaming. Moglins love to watch your favorite shows with you...even when no one else will. You can keep the joy for yourself, or give a Moglin to someone you love.

Moglins are the ultimate sidekicks for real life adventurers like you. Help us bring them from the fantasy world into the real one!

Check out all of the Moglins on our Kickstarter Page...

AQWorlds Patch Notes

Check the list of bug fixes to see what the team has addressed

Reens, Cemaros and the AQW Bug Hunter team are busy squashing the bugs you submit each week to the Bug Tracker at

Please do not send non-release bugs on Twitter.  They will get lost.  Make sure you send bug report forms!

Check back weekly to see if the bug you reported has been addressed.  Please remember that not all bugs are "easy fixes" so some reported and confirmed bugs from each week may not be on the fixed list as they will require more time or a different person to fix them.

If you would like to know how the reports go from you to fixed, check this page:

Bug Fixes:

  1. Undead Paladin Token has been given an increase in the drop rate.  We’re still not going to confirm the rate though!
  2. Quibble has been convinced it’s vacation time.
  3. Mitsu Bishi’s shop has now opened.
  4. Book pages in Necrodungeon look better now.
  5. Cutscene “The End?” in Xancave names you now, and vanishing ring mystery has been solved.
  6. Cutscene “Mad Giant” character model now shows up.
  7. Knave1's quest "Weaken the Moya" no longer 1 time only.
  8. Typos!  Are these just a given yet?  Do I need to say it every week?

Art Fixes:

  1. Armor of War and Golden Armor of War now have skelly face.
  2. Herald of Stalagbite female skin is now CC.

Not Fixed & Why:

  1. Vampire Armor/Class males having different eye scleras. The Vampire Class is a male only morph, so the eyes could be recoloured.  The Armor is not a morph so needs to use standard eye colours.
  2. Shadow Blade Shinobi Hair shading.  Hair can come in 3 “tones” or “shades”, dark, light or none.  Helm shading is artist opinion.
