Queen of Chaos: Elemental Orb Hunt

This Weekend: our 13th Birthday Origin Story Continues

Our 13th birthday story event continues this weekend with Queen of Chaos: Elemental Orb Hunt! Last week, your adventure began in /queensreign as you traveled back in time to help the 12 Heroes of Balance in their quest to bind the Queen of Monsters. This weekend, log in and help the original Ledgermayne, Tibicenas, Xing & Xang, and more as you quest to find the rest of the Elemental Orbs you'll need to seal away the Queen. 

/join orbhunt to continue your adventure!

  • Help Ledgermayne recover the Fire Orb
  • Complete Tibicenas' quests to secure the Light Orb
  • Fight through a frozen Mythsong to get the Ice Orb

Elemental Orb Hunt Reward Gear

Chaos is elemental... and so are this week's event farming rewards! Battle through the story in the /orbhunt map to unlock the pieces of the Light, Darkness, Energy, and Fire armor sets. 

New armor sets this week:

  • Luminomancer 
  • Tenebral Warrior
  • Pyroclastic Mage
  • Elegant Eternal Ice Outfit

Return next week as we release the "Good Hero Lords" armor sets and a selection of evolved + reworked chaos weapons! 

Even MORE gifts for you this weekend!

We're increasing the sizes on max inventory and bank spaces, friends lists, guilds list, and the amount of starting inventory spaces. Plus, ALL accounts will get 10 free inventory and 10 free bank spaces.


The joint forces + skill of AQW programmers Spider and Captain Rhubarb (and our team of intrepid release testers) have been working VERY hard to bring you some much-requested features during our month-long birthday celebration!

  • Bank for your house items!!!
  • Stackable House Items can now be placed in your house! (E.g. Having 2x "Bunny" will let you place it in your house TWICE!)*
  • Extra xp from leveling up now carries over!
  • Music / Sound FX volume slider
  • New Bank! (Loading times exponentially faster!)
  • New House Shop/Inventory UI
  • Users in the same server as you on your friends list will be at very top
  • and more!
  • Plus... the team is working on even MORE feature and quality of life requests, to be announced in the near future.

* We are adding the functionality this week. It will take the team some time to go through and manually adjust the stack sizes on the house items to be increased. Which would YOU like to see first? (Columns, lamps, tables, chairs, rugs, etc are at the top of the list.)

Support AQWorlds and Become a Legend!

12 years ago, AdventureQuest Worlds went live and players jumped at the chance to become the first Members of AQW. These lucky, early supporters of the game became the game's Founders. Every October after that, we hold the Upholder promotion - anyone upgrading their account during that period (or whose membership ends in early November of that year) becomes an Upholder... making them one of our most Legendary supporters. AdventureQuest Worlds would not be what it is today without their support.

All 13th Upholder badges and gear will be unlocked with tonight's release.

Flash is Dead. AQWorlds lives on with the Artix Games Launcher!

Adobe, the maker of the Flash Player plug-in, stopped supporting Flash. But never fear! We built the Artix Games Launcher so you can continue playing AdventureQuest Worlds and your other favorite Artix Entertainment games.

Download the Launcher at, then log in and get back to battling right from your computer. No Flash Player or web browser needed.

Thank you
