Celebrate AQWorlds' 8th Birthday

Battle through the Throne of Darkness Saga Finale!

AdventureQuest Worlds first launched back in October of 2008, and for the last EIGHT YEARS we have battled alongside you - our heroes - as we create and release weekly storyline updates with new bosses, battles, and LOTS of reward gear! This weekend, help us celebrate AQWorlds' 8th birthday as you fight your way through the Mysterious Dungeon towards... the truth about your next greatest, deadliest enemy!

See event page and Saga Chronicle

Happening Now: the Throne of Darkness Saga Finale 

7 of the world's deadlest villains were summoned to a Dark Throne to tell their tales of battling you, Lore's Hero.

Now, after hearing their stories, the Mysterious Stranger stands before them, ready to reveal its true purpose, and what the future will hold for these Villains of Darkness… IF they choose to join its mission.

They MUST answer because...

The monsters are moving...

The Darkness is stirring...

The shadows are whispering...

The time to decide is NOW!

Gravelyn's DoomFire Armor and Helm

Though the Throne of Darkness Saga is coming to a close... it has not gotten REALLY Dark! But that will all change once you watch the final cutscene in the Saga Finale! 

Darkness. Is. Coming.... and that's why Empress Gravelyn has gotten involved. As the world faces an onslaught of Infernal Invaders, she prepares to fight BACK! Because if there's one thing Gravelyn knows, it's how to command the darkest forces on Lore! (With FIRE!!!!)

Talk to Gravelyn in the /darkthronehub AFTER you complete the Mysterious Dungeon event to begin her quest chain!
