Darkon's Saga VI: Spring Overture

This weekend: Darkon's Elegy of Madness continues

Log in for nightmares, mayhem, and... Darkon's origin story?! O_O as we continue his Saga with an all-new chapter in /eridanipastBefore you can help bring the tragedy of Astravia to an end, you must understand how Darkon's journey began. With the help of two envoys of the Arcana, your hero will battle AS Darkon in a quest to gain answers to your questions about Drago and the symphony of madness that would soon resound throughout his land. 

To help you bring the pain to any enemies you encounter in battle, Darkon and Arxx crafted a series of wicked new rewards and shop items for you to collect and equip!

  • Suki's Seraphic armor
  • 3 helms
  • Suki's Sword
  • Darkon's statue house item

Merge shop:

  • Aurola's Casual armor set
  • Darkon's Casual armor set
  • Astravian Secretary + Royal Secretary sets

Plus, /join Arcadia and battle Agape to collect the pieces of the 0 AC Dainty Alchemist, a sweet new set* from AQW hero and guest artist, Vennetrix!
