Achievement Tracker Update
Every time you log into AQWorlds, you've got some goal: meeting up with friends, ranking your newest class, or farming for the Blinding Light of Destiny. The sense of satisfaction when you accomplish that goal is one of the best things about playing AQW! But we want to give you even MORE rewards for playing... and that's where the Achievement Tracker comes in.
Every achievement pack is a full item set; when you log in with this gear equipped, you'll have an immediate WOW factor. For now, read on to get a small teaser.
Achievement Tracker Rewards for 2023
- 1,250,000 AdventureCoins: exclusive armor set + Item of Donated Awesomeness (as is traditional)
- 15 Years Played: exclusive armor set + ???
- 14 Years Membership: exclusive armor set + (as is traditional)
This is the FINAL TIER of the Achievement Tracker; once you've reached any (or all) of these tiers, you've done it. You've WON the tracker!
In addition to badges that will be displayed on your character page, each achievement will come with an exclusive armor set. And because these are the ultimate achievement tracker the rewards for each of the achievements will be incredibly shiny (literally and figuratively). Many of you will have been waiting for quite a while for what's coming up.
So whether you've been with us for years, or this is the first time you're seeing the Achievement Tracker update, you're in for a treat... NEXT MONTH! The new achievement rewards for 2023 will arrive next month.
2023 Reward Release Date
The post above is from last month. We haven't given exact dates so we don't miss it and release them late. The rewards will arrive as soon as they're ready... fully ready. That way, we can make sure the heroes unlocking the final reward tier do not have to deal with major issues, missing art, etc.
Current plans are for the confirmed release date to be announced several days before it goes live. That way, we can be confident they will release as planned, with few (to no) issues. but should anything major change, we will post about that in the Design Notes as soon as possible!
