We know a lot of you have had unexpected schedule changes recently. To help keep your spirits high and vacation time fun, we're making sure that when you log into AdventureQuest Worlds, you have even more to do. More rewards to hunt for, quests to complete, and battles to win. For the next several weeks, log in each day for a new item, boost, buff, or surprise. 

Spring Break Surprise item drops will all be available through the middle of April. Surprise server boosts and drop rate/quantity boosts will only be available for a limited time. Keep checking this Design Notes posts to see that day's featured gift... and get a hint for what comes next!

Extended Spring Break Gift List

Not Currently Active (Want Them to Return?)

The 72 period for these Extended Spring Break Daily Gifts has ended... but we can always bring them back! Send Alina a message on Twitter and include the hashtag: #AQWSpringBreakGifts and there's a chance the gift/boost could return soon.

We more than doubled the drop rate on this ultra-low drop resource. This was a generous boost to help everyone actively farming. It was not so high that it will invalidate all of the hard work of the players who fought to create it already.

Double+ Drop Rate for Spirit Orbs from the Essential Essences and Bust Some Dust quests. (Drop rates increased from 5/10/15/20 up to 20/25/30/40!)

Shadows Of War: Evil Alliance Part 1

Quest to Defend Dage's Underworld from Malgor

After the ShadowLord Malgor’s plot to control the ley lines failed, he retreated. Or so we thought, until Dage the Evil received a message... and an offer of alliance. But Dage was not deceived by Malgor's empty promises, and now he needs your help to defend his realm. Because if Dage won't willingly add his Underworld minions to the ShadowFlame army, then Malgor intends to TAKE them.

This weekend:

  • /join darkally
  • Quest to battle Malgor's Shadow minions
  • Empower the members of Dage's Underworld
  • Forge new souls and punish defectors

Plus find...

  • Draconic Paragon and Prime gear set
  • Corrupted Draconic Paragon and Prime gear set
  • and the new SwordMaster class variants of the BladeMaster class series!

Alliance of Evil Gear

We've got four new armor sets for you to collect!

Draconic Paragon Plate: Undead Legion exclusive armor set! Create the pieces of this set using Undead Legion Tokens and Paragon Medals (available from Dage the Evil's Undead Legion Merge Shop

Prime Paragon Plate: Available from Dage the Evil's Birthday Shop (returning each year) and from the 2020 Birthday Collection Chest (only available in this year's chest)

Corrupt Draconic Paragon Plate: 
Complete this weekend's update in /darkally to unlock the story boss and farm for the Corrupt Draconic Paragon armor set!

Prime Corrupted Paragon Plate:
Limited Time only! Available from the Featured Gear Shop and from the 2020 Birthday Collection Chest 

The Story So Far...

The Queen of Monsters is dead, but Evil lives on... and the shadows she cast over our world continue to spread. A new overlord controls her castle, and if you aren't fighting FOR Malgor, the leader of the ShadowFlame Army, he wants to make sure you'll never fight again. His army has invaded our world, his minions seek to turn you over to him, and if you're going to stop him, you'll need two things, FAST: allies + power. 

After all of the chaos the Queen of Monsters wreaked, it is clear that you cannot sit back and deal with smaller threats to the world. That means we need to start gathering two things NOW: allies and power.

You have already added several new allies to your party:

  • Varga, the Goddess of War
  • Teja, the Pirate Queen of the Southern Seas
  • Jinx, the dimension-hopping Kittarian Cat Burglar
  • Mahou, the Spirit Mage
And you've reawakened a small part of your power again.  But you will need to hone it further before you will be able to reach all of the people we need. 

Dage's Birthday Class Update, Part 1

The Undead Legion is made up of Lore's finest undead (and not-undead-yet) warriors. That is why we're bringing back some of your favorite Underworld class skills paired with new art!

Starting tonight, find the BladeMaster Class, BladeMaster Assassin Class, and Legion BladeMaster Assassin Class skills return as the SwordMaster Class series!

SwordMaster Class uses rebalanced and buffed BladeMaster Class skills.
SwordMaster Assassin Class uses rebalanced and buffed BladeMaster Assassin Class skills
Legion SwordMaster Assassin Class uses Legion BladeMaster Assassin Class skills

How to Unlock the new classes:

SwordMaster Class permanently available for AdventureCoins in the Class Shop or Undead Legion Shop, or for Legion Tokens in the Legion Merge Shop
SwordMaster Assassin Class seasonally available in Dage's Dark Birthday Shop
Legion SwordMaster Assassin seasonally available in Dage's Dark Birthday Token Merge Shop

If you have any of the original BladeMaster classes, you can unlock their SwordMaster variants for free from the Curio shop in Battleontown.

The Tier 2 Class intended to release for Dage's Birthday, the Yami no Ronin Class, will arrive next month. This Tier 2 class will only be available via farming. Keep an eye out for more details about how to obtain it soon.

Follow the AdventureQuest Worlds class team on Twitter for more updates, previews, and details about new class changes, buffs, and releases!
