Battle Concert Class

To help you rock out as you battle, we've got all-new concert-themed armor sets and accessories. After you complete the story event, talk to Artix. He's got a quest for merge shop resources that will let you craft the updated versions of our Battle Concert Class: Neo Metal Necro (level 20) and Doom Metal Necro (level 60). 

The Neo Metal Necro class is a version that’s easier to obtain and use, and ideal for lower-level heroes. The Doom Metal Necro is built for more experienced heroes, who like to keep their risk high and damage higher!

See a list of updates to the original Concert Classes in the Patch Notes here.

Note: The Neo and Doom Metal Necro classes have new art but the same skills as classes from past concert events (Heavy Metal, Dark Metal, and Nu Metal Necro classes)

Twilly's Treasure Chest Update

The third of our Symphonic Alignment ensembles is the Dissonant Bandmaster. Talk to Twilly in Battleon and complete his "Open Treasure Chests" quest for a chance to collect the the armor, 2 helms, 2 capes, 3 weapons, and house item.

Meet the NPCs

The NPCs are Battleon's very own homegrown dev band. The characters you know and /party with are slaying undead AND audiences across Lore. The original band members include:

  • Artix the Paladin on guitar
  • Zhoom the Ranger on drums
  • Warlic the Blue Mage on bass guitar
  • Alina the Sorceress on vocals
  • Ghost the Ghost on triangle

Joining them for their first-ever in-game event performance are:

Watch them rock out on stage with the same songs you've been adventuring to in Adventure Quest Worlds, AdventureQuest 3D, and Dungeons & Doomknights. You can hear the tracks from their Critical Hits, Vol. 1 CD on spotify as well as in the Arcangrove zone inside AdventureQuest Worlds (/join gilead for a sample).
