Log in and celebrate Crulon's Birthday!
Crulon is one of the guardians of the Djinn Realm... and also one of AQWorlds top item artists. He celebrated his real-life birthday earlier this month, and to share in the joy he felt, he’s created a host of new treasures for you! This weekend, log in and battle to find 12 elemental keys; find them all and the rewards are yours!
Plus, log in this weekend and find…
- New gear in Nulgath’s Birthday Shop/Collection
- New ArchFiend farming reward sets
- Permanent gallery shops added in /artistalley for item artist, Crulon, and map artist, Arlette
More Adventures in the Djinn Realm
Being a Djinn Guardian, you come across a LOT of mystical chests. Last year, Crulon found one locked with three magical seals. Decipher his riddles, locate the monsters, and fight to get the seals you need.
Talk to him in /djinn to begin his quests. Complete his Seal of Approval quest and to collect the pieces of the Serpent Knight gear. Find his Sandsea Enchanter set in his birthday shop or the Featured Gear shop in your game menu.
Real Life Quest: Wish him a happy birthday on Twitter!
Crulon, Guardian of the Djinn Realm, summons you!
Long ago, the Guardians of the Djinn Realm fought - and defeated - a powerful evil. But now, the seal binding Gedoz the Malignant has been shattered, and the Realm is once more under attack. Quest to recover the Guardians’ weapons and answer Crulon’s call to battle!
Log in and journey to the Djinn Realm to help stop Gedoz the Malignant and unlock out of this world rewards!
Djinn Realm Guardian Armor Sets
After you complete the story, battle to create the Djinn Realm Guardian armor sets shown below! Talk to Crulon to begin his Unseen Essences farming quest. There is a 10% chance to get the merge item resources from the quest, and an additional chance to get even more from each monster you kill!

New Birthday Rares, Farming Rewards, and a new Story!
Nulgath the ArchFiend, lord of the OverSoul, has gathered around him many followers, creatures, and allies over the centuries. This weekend, as we celebrate Nulgath’s birthday once more, log in and battle to uncover more information about one of his mysteriously silently minions, the sentient Rock Beast known only as… Crag.
Talk to Bamboozle in /cragglerock to begin your quest. Collect special gems for his best boulder bud to earn the special gear that only a powered-up Crag can create.
Complete Bamboozle's quests to reawaken (or at least... partially /heal) Crag to collect stones for his merge shop and to rank up the new CraggleRock faction.
And if you're a true member of Nulgath's Nation, you'll want to find Lae in the /tercessuinotlim zone! He's got a bounty of new gear for you... IF you can pay his price. All crafted by Yo Lae for members of Nulgath's Nation to celebrate the ArchFiend's birthday!
Nulgath's Seasonal Birthday Shop Returns
Last year, in honor of the Flame Dragon Invasion, we brought 1Nulgath's Void Rebirth and Void Awakening sets from OverSoul into AQWorlds. These sets will return every year for his birthday, as our way of helping all his fans celebrate!
Nulgath's seasonal Birthday Shop features:
- Void Rebirth armor set
- Void Awakening armor set
- Shielded variants of both armors
- Nulgath's Bounty Hunter Drone Pet (with two quests)
- Nulgath's Birthday Gift Pet (with one quest)
Next week, even more gear will be added to celebrate Nulgath's birthday, including the Void Jolly Roger set, the OverSoul Paladin, the Void Cowboy, and more!
Not sure who Nulgath is? Read on!
Nulgath the ArchFiend is the in-game persona for Nulgath-the-team-member, one of AQWorlds' original artists. Though he no longer works regularly for Artix Entertainment, his art style (prevalent in early AQW and featured in Oversoul) and the character itself remain hugely popular with many of our long-time heroes. To recognize their dedication and enjoyment, we hold an event in-game each year to celebrate the character and give them a hefty dose of the gear they love.
Honorable Hero 2020 moved to next week
It has been a CRAZY week! Reens (the dev in charge of weekly releases, item set-up, and testing) set up over 150 items sent in by our artists, updated 11 in-game maps, and set-up 24 quests... Her gift to Nulgath's Nation and the ArchFiend himself is a mighty one. Now, all that's left is for you to enjoy it!
But because of just how huge this week was, to keep the team sane, we've shifted the Honorable Hero 2019 awards to next week.
