Master of the Underworld, Part 1

New Nulgath Birthday Story, Farming Rewards, and More

Nulgath the ArchFiend’s birthday celebration continues this weekend as we begin Part 1 of our "Master of the Underworld" story. Set in the past, you'll battle as Nulgath's Commandant. Your task, to observe Dage the Lich, a promising new addition to your Master's Nation... and assess his loyalty.

It has been 10 years since AQW heroes first battled through the Dage vs Nulgath war. This year, we will all travel even farther back in time to experience the first conflicts and clashes between Nulgath's Nation and Dage the Lich... and his growing Legion. This weekend's story is the first of the three-party adventure exploring that tale. We'll continue it in March with even more lore, bosses, and war rewards as we celebrate Dage the Evil's birthday event.

This weekend, log in and /join fiendspast to:

  • Battle as Nulgath's Commandant
  • Talk to Dage the Lich to begin your mission to observe Nulgath's newest potential heir
  • Gauge his prowess, strength, and ability to complete your training missions... no matter WHO he is asked to slay.

Not sure who Nulgath is? Read on!

Nulgath the ArchFiend is the in-game persona for Nulgath-the-team-member, one of AQWorlds' original artists. Though he no longer works regularly for Artix Entertainment, his art style (prevalent in early AQW and featured in Oversoul) and the character itself remain hugely popular with many of our long-time heroes. 

To recognize his dedication and enjoyment, we hold an event in-game each year to celebrate the character and give his fans a hefty dose of the gear they love.

PLUS... new badge for Hollowborn Paladins

In our quest to continue adding more character page badges so you can show off your end-game and high-level farming rewards, we've added the Hollowborn Paladin badge tonight.

In order to unlock the badge, though, you'll need to complete "The Post Summoning" quest one more time. Talk to Lae in /hollowdeep to access and complete the quest one more time to unlock your badge.
