Become an 11th Upholder

Support AQWorlds and Become a Legend!

AQW is coming up on another birthday! And starting RIGHT NOW, we are once again offering the chance to become an AQW Upholder, and unlock the exclusive 2019 Star Swords, plus the Sentinel Class, Star Road zone, and more!

What is an Upholder?

Eleven years ago, AdventureQuest Worlds went live and players jumped at the chance to become the first Members of AQW. These lucky, early supporters of the game became the game's Founders. 

The first eleven years have been an insane rollercoaster, filled with massive events and world-shattering enemies, plus the dreams, plans, and stories of the entire dev team AND all of the heroes who've battled alongside us.

And now, as we prepare for the future of AdventureQuest Worlds (bringing the next version of the game to mobile devices, the web, and more) we are celebrating AQW's 11th birthday and offering YOU the chance to join the AQW Founders by becoming an 11th Upholder!

What does an 11th Upholder get?

As an 11th Upholder, you'll receive:

  • Exclusive Upholder Class: Sentinel Class!*

  • Access to the exclusive Star Sword: Origins zone

  • Star Katana (with color-custom gem+tassel)

  • Star Sword of Nulgath

  • Pyroclastic Star Sword

  • Abyssal Flame Star Sword**

  • Underworld Star Sword

  • Gothic Star Sword

  • Dual Pyroclastic / Abyssal Flame Star Swords

  • 11th Upholder Character Page Badge

  • Infinite bragging rights

The Underworld and Gothic Star Swords come with 2019 and classic variants (because we know you long-time heroes love that classic art!) Once you become a 9th Upholder, you can easily access these Items in your Book of Lore by clicking your 11th Upholder Badge icon in the Badges tab.

* The Sentinel Class will be available for ALL previous Upholders and Founders as our way of saying thanks for supporting us in the past!

** The Abyssal Flame star sword replaced the Lightovian Star Sword announced earlier in the month.

How do I become an 11th Upholder?

All that we ask is that you help support AQW the game undergoes its exciting rebirth!

Please note that only Upgraded Legend Memberships count towards 11th Upholder.

Want to know if you're already an Upholder?

That's easy! Just click the Manage Account link on the left under the ACCOUNT section. As soon as you sign in you'll see when your membership expires. 

Cool! When Do I Get My Upholder Gear?

11th Upholder badges, Star Swords, and Sentinel Class will be awarded starting October 1st! You will find your 11th Upholder Badge in your Book of Lore in the Other Badges tab.

Only Memberships Count?

Yes. You can use Artix Points on the Portal site or any method in AQW to upgrade, but it MUST be an AQW Membership. AdventureCoins DO NOT COUNT TOWARD 11th Upholder.
