Triple Holiday Weekend

Get ready to /dance!

Happy Lunar New Year, Heroes! This weekend, we're celebrating with Empress Miko in Akiba once again... and THIS year is special: it's the Year of the Dragon so you KNOW we've got an epic boss battle ahead. Plus, find Beleen and Frevo, our holiday emissaries for Hero's Heart Day and Carnaval, in the /eventhub. February is a Triple Holiday month-long celebration: from the SuperBowl /party all the way to Hero's Heart Day and Yokai New Year! Log in all month long for new holiday events, stories, and gear.

Friday's Update Details

  • New Story: Year of the Wood Dragon Boss Battle
  • New Rewards: Treasure hoard of new Yokai dragon gear
  • Class Updates: Not a Mod rework + new icons, DragonSlayer General rebalance
  • Holiday events: the Groundhorc, Yokai New Year, Hero's Heart Day, and Carnaval return

Stay up to date with upcoming release plans and boosts on the Artix Calendar.

Year of the Wood Dragon Rewards

Complete all of Baoyu Lin's quests and battled the boss in /yokaihunt. Then craft new reward gear in Empress Miko's merge shop. Plus defeat the monsters in the /eventhub to collect even more sweet, celebratory seasonal gear.

Seasonal Hero's Heart Day Events Return

In the real world, Valentine’s Day is a holiday full of emotion -- most people either love the hearts, the pink decorations, and the cheerful cheesy romance... or they love to rebel against the idea of it all.  This weekend, log in and get ready to slay your way through (friend)zones full of unloved undead, disgrunted draconians, and long-lost loves as we bring back all our seasonal Hero's Heart Day events.

(Happy endings not guaranteed... but at least you can get some sweet loot out of the deal.)

It's Carnaval in Terra da Festa! 

In the town of Terra da Festa, the party is in full swing bringing you amazing party outfits inspired by those seen in the streets of Rio de Janeiro. Members will find special bonus quests with special Member Only rewards, but there are shops and other quests for everyone to enjoy!

NOT A MOD Class Rework

 It's been almost 11 years since NOT A MOD first released and a lot has changed since then. We've all leveled up IRL, some of us have started families (or gotten battle cats), and who knows, maybe one of us has even gone to space *eyes the robot* ... But despite everything that's changed, there's one thing that's remained constant, and that is non-stop requests from people asking to become a mod. No, you still can't be a Mod.* ;_; 

You're just a normal gamer like most of us reading this post. However, what you can be is NOT A MOD, a ridiculous, yet deceptively powerful class that won't give you any special mod powers, but can allow you to unleash that inner gamer spirit within. 

Dragonslayer General Class Updates

While making updates to Dragonslayer last year, we knew that Dragonslayer General would also need a few changes to keep up! The updated Dragonslayer General now plays similarly to Dragonslayer, but with a LOT more punch!

Get more details on Not a Mod Updates in this post and the DragonSlayer General Class changes in this post.

* Unless you go through the proper channels, survive 6 rounds against Dage the Evil in combat, and find the real-life Blinding Light of Destiny locked in a box, hidden away deep inside Artix's Artifact Storage Rarehouse. 

Thursday, February 1: Celestial Dungeon Resource Boost

This week’s resource boost is live! Get double dungeon drop rewards as you battle to create your Greatblade of the Entwined Eclipse until February 6th. Log in each day for a new reward, boost, or other bonus.

 

Tuesday, January 30: Dark Treasure Hunt

Defeat the darkness as you battle monsters to recover a two deadly weapons! Battle Creature 12 in Darkon's Garden to begin your search. Survive, and you may just find yourself wielding the Dark Dragon Summoner's Rifts (single or dual-wield.) This hunt will be available until Friday, March 1st, 2024.
