Our May the Fourth Event Continues this weekend!

Fifth Lord Sepulchure is the most feared man in the galaxy, and has conquered countless worlds for the Fifth Order. He will NEVER stop until his master is satisfied. This weekend is the best chance to take him out. Log in and talk to Hammer Wateru; he needs your help to destroy the Fifth Order’s superweapon and ensure the Freedom Fighters' victory!

This weekend, /join murdermoon to begin your adventure:

  • Battle Tempest Soldiers
  • Sabotage the Murder Moon

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

Come to the Darker Side for New Rewards

Starting tonight, you'll find new seasonal and rare gear in the Featured Gear Shop in your game menu and in the May Fourth seasonal shop in /zorbaspalace.

New seasonal items for this year include:

  • Necho Tech V2 armor set

New event rare items for this year include:

New This Year: DarkLord Class

Talk to Hammer in /murdermoon to begin the battle to create a cargo-hold's worth of new space-gear... including ALL of the items in the DarkLord Class.

Over the last couple of years, we've been bringing back previously rare class skills paired with new art so that ALL players can enjoy the gameplay. Previously, the DarkSide Class debuted in 2012*, as Vader Darkside's prize in Cysero's "Can I Has Mod" reward-giving extravaganza-of-craziness.

May the Fourth is the thematically PERFECT time for the class to return, and it will only be available by farming! The blue variant of the seasonal DarkSide 2.0 class will be available for ALL players to farm. A diabolically-evil red armor set variant will be locked to higher-level heroes. No OG Darkside class required.**

Check out these Design Notes for more news about balance and skill updates. 

* OG Darkside Class owners, you'll keep your original, exclusive class just as-is, with the same art, battle pet, and skills as you've come to know and love. And if you check out the Darkside Orb's quest in /curio, you'll find a permanent, 0 AC version of the Hate Wolf battle pet PLUS a free version of the class have been added as a quest reward.

Battle through our seasonal May the Fourth maps now

Login now as our out of this world Lore Wars gear and seasonal adventures return! Check out the all-new, rare Way of the J6 armor set in your game menu, plus find all our May 4th event items in the shop in the /zorbaspalace map.

Server Performance and Bug Fixes

What is the "ServerTest" server?

This is an updated version of the regular Live AQW servers, with some performance and bug fixes.  This is NOT the "new" AQW mobile server.

Before rolling out changes to the live servers on Friday, we need to make sure there are no mysterious bugs or side effects to the code changes.

 

Want to help test?  Here is how: 

Log into the "ServerTest" server and just play the game like normal. 

If you have any strange problems or bugs, keep a note of them.   Then logout, and log into one of the regular Live servers, and try the exact same actions again. 

If the problem bug is ONLY on the ServerTest server, please Report the bug at the Bugs site.

If you report a real bug, and we can reproduce the problem, and the problem ONLY exists on the ServerTest server, you will earn a "Server Tester" badge.

 

Brief List of Changes

New Changes (May 6, 2021)

  • Fixed lots of random bugs, where player data is "missing" and the server tries to make changes anyway.
  • In PVP zones, it is no longer allowed to Get items from your Bank.  You can store items, but can not swap or pull items from Bank. 
  • Added cool downs to guild,friend, and duel invites.  Less spam!


Changes (April 26, 2021)

  • Better warning messages when guild, party, and friend actions fail.
  • Buying items that are higher than your character level are blocked.
  • Item drops from monsters will now have enhancement level equal to your char level, unless the item is a higher than your char level. It will not be enhanced.
  • If you try to go to a player house that does not exist, and you already own a home, you will get an warning message, instead of going to the buyhouse map.
  • Removed an old process that would often lag the entire system every 15 minutes.
  • If you log into another game server, this server will show a warning message, instead of Kick for some actions, like quest turn-in, equipping gear.  More improvements in this area will be coming soon.
  • Faster server reboot time.
  • Many other behind-the-scenes performance and bug fixes.

May the Fourth Be With You

Fan-Favorite Space Gear is BACK

Login now as our out of this world Lore Wars gear and seasonal adventures return! Check out the all-new, rare Way of the J6 armor set in your game menu, plus find all our May 4th event items in the shop in the /zorbaspalace map.

Then return this Friday for the Fifth Lord Sepulchure boss fight, new farming rewards, new upgrade pack and... the DarkSide 2.0 Class (name TBD)

DarkSide 2.0 Class?

Over the last couple of years, we've been bringing back previously rare class skills paired with new art so that ALL players can enjoy the gameplay. Previously, the DarkSide Class debuted in 2012*, as Vader Darkside's prize in Cysero's "Can I Has Mod" reward-giving extravaganza-of-craziness.

May the Fourth is the thematically PERFECT time for the class to return, and it will only be available by farming! The blue variant of the seasonal DarkSide 2.0 class will be available for ALL players to farm in this Friday's event. A diabolically-evil red armor set variant will be locked to higher-level heroes. No OG Darkside class required.** 

Want to help choose the class's name? Vote in the poll on my Twitter account until Wednesday at 11:59 PM EST.

* OG Darkside Class owners, you'll keep your original, exclusive class just as-is, with the same art, battle pet, and skills as you've come to know and love. And if you check out the Darkside Orb's quest in /curio, you'll find a permanent, 0 AC version of the Hate Wolf battle pet has been added as a quest reward.

** Because this class is available via farming, and won't require end-game levels of time investment, we're making all of the new class art available for all players.

Zorba the WUT?!

On a planet far, far away... your quest to help Memet the Scruffy-Looking Nightmare Herder begins as we start our May event line-off with a BLAST(er). She owes intergalactic crime lord Zorba the Bakk, and if she's going to pay him back, she needs YOUR help. Find new bosses, rewards, and more this weekend!

Head to /zorbaspalace to begin your quests. 

  • Battle Palace Enforcers + Cactus Creepers
  • Fight Thwompcats
  • Take on Zorba the Bakk

May the 4th Seasonal Gear

Here at the Secret Underground Lab, we are all game developers but also HUGE nerds, and I have to say... these ARE the Mog Wars-themed items you're looking for! Head in game now and find the seasonal May 4th (sci-fi/space-themed) gear in your game menu under the Featured Shops tab! 

Plus, find a merge shop full of space combat-ready items.

The Mawa's Stand Merge Shop includes:

  • Galactic Shadow Trooper minion armor/helm
  • Twicket, Twig Fortuna, and Twill-ek pets
  • StarCrasher armor set
  • and more to come on Monday!

May the 4th holiday... wait, what?

Well... it's not, really. Unless you're a particular breed of nerd. As the Intergalactic Space Wiki (run by wookies, of course) tells us:

"May 4 is considered a holiday by Star Wars fans to celebrate the franchise's films series, books, and culture as well as strict religious rituals. The date was chosen for the easy pun on the catchphrase "May the Force be with you" — "May the fourth be with you". Even though the holiday was not actually created or declared by Lucasfilm many Star Wars fans across the world choose to celebrate the holiday."

Unlock the Lord of the J-Sixth Set

Available every year from May 1st - 31st

May is the month of many things: spring showers, carniverous flowers, and LORE WARS! Our May Seasonal Set features gear from our May the Fourth shop as we celebrate one of the most-beloved fictional universes and pop-culture phenomenons EVER. This month's seasonal gear will outfit you for adventures in space... and beyond: the J-Sixth Lord, Lightning Lich Emperor, and the StarWalker.

May Sets: May the Fourth Gear

Starting Saturday, May 1st at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock our May the Fourth (be with you) sets: the Lightning Lich Lord, The StarWalker, and the J-Sixth Lord (with color-custom trim).

There are two ways to get the gear:

1) Total package: Buy the entire set directly through the website for $9.99 USD 

2) Individually: Buy each of the individual pieces from Garek the Traveling Gear Merchant in Battleon.

The total cost to buy all of the gear individually is 6,000 ACs, so getting all the gear from the pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 4,000 ACs).

The set includes:

  • J-Sixth Lord armor
  • Lightning Lich Emperor armor
  • The SkyWalker armor
  • J-Sixth Lord helm, cape, and color customizable lightblade
  • Lightning Lich Emperor helm, moglin pet, and battle pet
  • The SkyWalker helms, capes, and dual color-customizable lightblades
  • an exclusive character page badge

Seasonal Set Details

Each month, we'll feature a new set, available only during that month every year. 

Seasonal Sets
January: ArchFiend OverLord
February: Obsidian Samurai
March: Legion Warseeker
April: Bio-War Cultist
May: Lord of the J-Sixth + Lightning Lich Lord
June: ShadowZard Mount + Rider
July: Flameborn + Underworld Summoner
August: Urban Assassins
September: Celestial Naval Commander
October: ChronoStriker
November: Harvest Hunters
December: Northern Wanderer

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as an upgrade bonus? 

Upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages; new bonus gear comes out roughly every month. Seasonal set packs are bought separately. Just like the Flame Dragon Warrior pack, you can buy the entire set directly, for one price, on our site. You can ALSO buy the individual pieces in-game.

This set will return EVERY May, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in upcoming years.

What if I just want ONE of the items?

You're in luck! Talk to Garek in Battleon. He'll be selling the individual pieces of the set through May 31st.

Where do I get my gear if I buy the full set through the website?

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.
