7th Upholder Ends Sunday
Support AQWorlds and Become a Legend!
October's almost over! If you want to become a 6th Upholder and gain access to all of our new StarSwords, the class, and the all-new Upholder-only zone, be sure to upgrade your account before Sunday night!
* The same way that the Founders got their chance at the birth of the game and the way 1st Upholders got their chance six years ago, 2nd Upholders got the chance five years ago, 3rd Upholders got the chance four years ago, 4th Upholders got their chance three years ago, 5th upholders got their chance two years ago, and 6th Upholders got their chance last year at this time.
What is an Upholder?
Seven 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. Now, we are celebrating AQW's 7th birthday and offering YOU the chance to join the AQW Founders by becoming a 7th Upholder!
The first seven years have been awesome, but you have not seen anything yet. The Queen of Monsters has awakened and begun building her army. We’ve seen two Generals emerge, and just learned of a new one in Brightoak. But that’s not all… we have JUST finished porting over the old server to the new system, and that means even BIGGER changes are coming! AQW is finally being REBORN!
What does a 7th Upholder get?
As a 7th Upholder, you shall receive:
Exclusive Upholder Class: Sentinel Class!*
Rare: Paragon Star Sword
Rare: Mechanical Star Sword
7th Upholder Character Page Badge
Infinite bragging rights
Access to the exclusive Star Sword: Origins zone
Once you become a 7th Upholder, you can easily access these Items in your Book of Lore by clicking your 7th 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!
How do I become a 7th Upholder?
All that we ask is that you help support AQW the game undergoes its exciting rebirth!
When you Upgrade your AQW Membership ANYTIME in the month of October, you will automatically become a legendary 7th Upholder.
If you are ALREADY an upgraded Legend, and your Membership expires AFTER November 1st, 2015, then you are already a 7th Upholder. Congratulations!
Please note that only Upgraded Legend Memberships count toward 7th 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. Here's mine:
Cool! When Do I Get My Upholder Gear?
7th Upholder badges, Star Swords, and Sentinel Class will be awarded as you log in, starting October 1st! You will find your 7th 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 7th Upholder.
Your Support Makes AQWorlds Possible!
Thank you so much for helping us make AQWorlds! Without you, we couldn't make this game, or allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy it for free. We couldn't keep AQWorlds running without every single upgrade and AC that you buy. Nearly every penny you spend goes back into the game.
Though some people prefer buying AdventureCoins and others prefer upgrading, anyone who spends real money on this game deserves to get as much as we can give them, because without their support... there wouldn't BE an AQWorlds for everyone to play!
You may not know this but AQW (like all AE games) is ENTIRELY supported by the players. We have no financial backers and nobody owns stock in the company. Clicking on ads and doing AExtras offers does bring in some money, but not nearly enough to keep AQWorlds free for everyone to enjoy.
That's why we continue to reward the AQWorlds' Founders, who supported us in the very beginning. To make sure they know how much we appreciate that, we are continuing to give them free gear each year!
Thank you for battling alongside us, and for sharing your ideas and love of AQWorlds with us. You truly are the best gaming community on the internet, and I am genuinely grateful for all of you. /bow Thank you for the first 6 years of AQWorlds, and here's to another 5 years, 10 years, and beyond!
