8th Upholder ends tomorrow

Last chance to become an 8th Upholder!

 The clock is ticking if you want to unlock the exclusive 8th Upholder 2016 Star Swords, bragging rights, member perks, and more!

What does an 8th Upholder get?

As an 8th Upholder, you'll receive:

  • Exclusive Upholder Class: Sentinel Class!*

  • Rare: Cursed Star Sword 

  • Rare: Solar Star Sword

  • Classic versions of both Star Swords

  • 8th Upholder Character Page Badge

  • Infinite bragging rights

  • Access to the exclusive Star Sword: Origins zone

Once you become an 8th Upholder, you can easily access these Items in your Book of Lore by clicking your 8th Upholder Badge icon in the Badges tab.

Wait... What IS an Upholder?

Eight 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 8th birthday and offering YOU the chance to join the AQW Founders by becoming a 8th Upholder!

The first eight years have been crazy, insane, and awesome, but you have not seen anything yet. The Throne of Darkness Saga is about to end and we are about to return to a new, darker, and more chaotic (and arachic) Queen of Monsters Saga. If you played through the recent Celestial Realm and Paladin vs Undead stories, you've seen hints of what creatures may come... and they aren't pretty.

The server rewrite testing continues as all you heroes continue to help us refine and improve the new system before it goes live! 

How do I become an 8th 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 toward 8th 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:

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 8th 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!

* The same way that the Founders got their chance at the birth of the game and the way 1st Upholders got their chance seven years ago, 2nd Upholders got the chance six years ago, 3rd Upholders got the chance five years ago, 4th Upholders got their chance four years ago, 5th upholders got their chance three years ago, 6th upholders got their chance two years ago,, and 7th Upholders got their chance last year at this time.
