Triple Update Weekend

Grenwog and Earth Day Return + Adam1a1's Birthday

Every year, heroes hunt around Battleon for eggs and prizes, and battle the deadly, egg-sucking Grenwog as we celebrate the return of Spring! This weekend talk to Cabdury (the friendliest, most inedible bunny in town) to begin this year's Egg Hunt quests in Battleon.

The legendary Grenwog is one of the fiercest beasts on Lore. Each spring, it awakens with one thing on its mind -- FOOD. And its favorite snack is, of course, eggs! (And the heroes who try to steal them. So beware!) 

  • /join grenwog to battle the sweetest, deadliest Grenwog boss yet!
  • /join grenstory to begin the Jurassic Grenwog adventure

Springtastic Rewards

Grenwog gear, collect it all! (Or as much as you can carry) New this year: the Classy Bunny armor set drops from the Grenwog boss. The Eggceptional Bunny armor set drops from the Rabid Lupus!

  • Cyberpunk Grenwog pet
  • Evolved Berserker Bunny set
  • Berserker Bunny armor, helm, and longsword
  • Daisy on your back cape
  • Mayflower and Marshmallow Cheep pets
  • Fire Egg Staff, Carrotine Cutter, ChickenCow Club
  • And much more!

BattleOn Town Egg Hunt

Collect the eggs hidden around BattleOn and the rest of the town to unlock the Backpack of Eggs and the Vorpal Bunny pet! (Note: Any Vorpal Bunny will be able to access the quests to get this year's regular Berserker Bunny items. Enjoy!) 

Once you've collected all those, why not try Cabdury's Treat Hunt to unlock the Evolved Berserker Bunny set? The merge items will drop from the bosses in Greenguard Forest.  With an Armor, a Helm, a Spear, and a Long-sword, you'll have a bun-tiful amount of items to choose from! The Evolved Berserker Bunny Armor also requires the drop from the final Vorpal Bunny quest.

Cross-Lore Egg Hunt

After whetting your detection skills in BattleOn, TRUE eggsplorers can talk to Cabdury and decipher his clues to find the pink, green, blue, purple, or multicolored eggs hidden around the rest of Lore to unlock even more rewards: the Steampunk Eggsplorer set!

  • Pink Eggs: Cape
  • Green Eggs: Helm
  • Blue Eggs: Weapon
  • Purple Eggs: Armor
  • Multicolored Eggs: Magical Shifting Grenwog Egg House

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

Captain Lore is back and he needs your help again! /Join pollution to help Captain Lore battle General Pollution, the foulest villain around, free his eco-friendly energy platform from the chaotic clutches of General Pollution! Reduce, reuse, and recycle as many elementals as you can to unlock Captain Lore's shop and gain access to the greenest gear in the game!

Guild Leaders: Get one free name change

NOT An April Fools Joke!

A few months back, Captain Rhubarb began working with the team, testers, and players on Twitter to get feedback on improving the account manager and guild system in-game. Our quest to keep leveling up the game and respond to your suggestions and ideas continues this week... with a FREE GIFT for all Guild Leaders!

Starting tonight, we are giving a free Guild Rename Coupon to all 50,000+ active Guild Leaders.

So if you've been sitting on a typo in your Guild Name and haven't been able to fix it, or just feel like it's time for a change... this is the gift you've been looking for!

How to use the Coupon

Guild Leaders, once you see your Guild Rename Coupon in your inventory...

  1. Log into your account manager
  2. Click on the Guilds tab on the left hand menu
  3. Click the Rename Guild button. The Guild Rename cost will be free.

Important Notes

  • Guild Leaders will get one free Rename Coupon. Future name changes will cost 1,000 ACs like normal.
  • Player Support cannot change or reverse your guild name, fix typos, or take a guild name from one guild and add it onto another.
  • You MUST use the account site to use the Guild Rename Coupon. It will not work in-game.
  • The changed guild name may not show up in game until all the members of the guild re-login to the game.

More Guild and Player Names Now Available

That's right! Captain Rhubarb just did another clean-up and freed a ton of names which were not purged in our normal "clean-up"

  • 20,000 inactive guild names freed up
  • 640,000 inactive player names freed up

What's Next?

Captain Rhubarb has a long list of player feedback and ideas for improving the game, guild system, account manger, and other areas of the site. Keep an eye on the Design Notes for what we improve next!
