FORGE into Battle

Birthday, Boss, Formal Gear, & Forge Update

This weekend, log in and gear up for adventure because we've got something for everyone: new item functionality, a new boss battle, new rewards, and more! 

Check out this weekend's updates in:

  • Head to the /forge to see new Weapon, Helm, and Cape Trait enhancements
  • Make your way to Eden City to unlock the Eden Formal set in /eden
  • Talk to Batista in /mythperception for a new Brasilian Independence Day boss fight
  • Find ShadowSlayer K in /safiria to quest for his dark, deadly new birthday gear

Celebrate Brasil's Independence Day

Head to /Mythperception Island in Terra da Festa and talk to Batista, the Folklore Spinner. He's got a new tale to tell: the legend of the Boto Cor Rosa! Battle the Boto Cor Rosa to collect all new reward drops, plus gather Pink Gems of the Sea to create the Pastel Privateer set in Batista's merge shop.

Then take on the bosses in /iara and /ultraiara to earn merge shop resources to create epic new reward items themed after Iara's tail (er... tale).

Happy Birthday, Nakana (aka ShadowSlayer K)!

Our second celebration begins in /safiria! Head to the Vampire Queen's kitchen (O_O!!!) and talk to ShadowSlayer K -- the in-game persona for AQW artist Nakana -- to begin his quests for a host of new gear!

Various Changes

Several miscellaneous changes.

  • Absolution Heal Boost increased (40% -> 50%)
  • Vainglory no longer reduces Dodge (35% -> 0%)
  • Arcana’s Concerto now does Hybrid damage type (and so scales with damage boosting stats and defense)
  • Azalith in /celestialpast is now killable
