Double Holiday Collection Chest

Quibble Coinbiter + the Cursed Collection Chest

Friday the 13th and Talk Like a Pirate Day are two of our most popular holiday events in AQWorlds. Every year, Quibble Coinbiter returns with new doom or pirate-themed gear from the past, present, and future for heroes who don't ask too many questions about where their loot came from. This year, to celebrate the double holiday, we have enough naval and pirate sets to crew a warship!

All of this year's Quibble's Friday the 13th x Talk Like a Pirate Day rare items will be available individually from his shop in Battleon until the event leaves on Monday, October 7th, or you can unlock all 130+ items from the Cursed Collection Chest.

  • Abyssal Flame Naval Commander set
  • Pyroclastic Naval Commander set
  • 13th Naval Commander set
  • 13th Pirate Captain set
  • Kitsune Commander set (with color-custom trim)
  • Underworld Pirate Caster set
  • 2 bank pets: Abyssal and Pyroclastic Quibble pets
  • Underworld Pirate Caster Pet (w/ quest for even more set accessories)
  • and more!

The Legion Pirate Caster pet is also available in the Undead Legion Merge Shop for 5,000 Legion Tokens. It unlocks a quest for the exclusive Legion Lieutenant armor set (plus the other drops the Underworld Pirate Caster pet has).

Cursed Collection Chest: Unlock all 130+ items

Rare collectors, take note! The Cursed Collection Chest will be available for 10,000 ACs and contains ALL of Quibble Coinbiter's 2019 Friday the 13th x Talk Like a Pirate Day rare items (over 42,000 ACs worth of gear). This magic chest comes from the very depths of the dark sea, and has over 130+ items from all of Quibble's rare sets.

Cursed Collection Chest pet: 10,000 ACs

This Weekend: Special Double Holiday Guest Event

Two weeks of Friday the 13th AND Talk Like a Pirate Day start tonight!

YARRRRR! Friday the 13th is making landfall RIGHT NOW! Back in 2012, Aurelio Voltaire sailed to Pirate’s Bay, but his ship sunk just off the coast. The wreckage has lain at the bottom of the sea, undisturbed (?!), ever since... and so has the treasure it carried. His candy-loving companion, Hargoyle, set off to recover it, and hasn't been seen since. This year, log in and battle through a sunken pirate ship alongside Aurelio Voltaire in our double holiday event: the Sea Witch's Curse

You think Friday the 13 superstitions are scary? Just wait until you battle these bloodthirsty sea monsters—THEN you’ll know the true definition of scary! And brace yourself… because the Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness is live in the Wheel of Doom Merge Shop!

This weekend, /join merrowtrench to begin a cursed underwater adventure and...

  • Battle alongside Aurelio Voltaire through a sunken pirate as you search for Candy Claws
  • Fight monsters to get 36 event-exclusive reward drops
  • Rock out to killer tunes as you take down the waterlogged merdraconian pirates 
  • Defeat a boss so heartless that mermaids can barely whisper in her presence
  • Escape with your life... if you can...
  • How lucky—you can play through all previous Friday the 13th events!*

Event reward drops include the seasonal Cursed DeckStalker set, the rare Doomed DeckStalker set, the Waterlogged Zombie armor, a boss-themed armor set, unlucky 13th pirate accessories, and the Cursed Guitar of DOOM!

Aurelio Voltaire Returns for Friday the 13th!

Aurelio Voltaire is the maker of music, films, books, comics, toys and... mayhem. He has appeared in almost ALL of the AQWorlds Friday the 13th events... and has become a fan-favorite for our players (not to mention beloved by goths, trekkies, and music-lovers in general). If you aren't familiar with his music or other works, you should check his site out here.

In addition to being an incredible artist, he's a downright amazing person to work with, and we're incredibly grateful for the time and energy he spent helping us with the release. (Especially since a few email gremlins sent most of his messages to our spam boxes! O_O) On behalf of the entire AQWorlds team, we want to thank Aurelio Voltaire for being a part of this special event! 

Wheel of Doom Update: Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness

Last week, we talked about some upcoming changes to the Wheel of Doom, to make how Treasure Potion drops work clearer. 

Live this week: 

  • We added 200 free Treasure Potions to your account if you spun the Wheel between April 26th and September 6th, as our way of apologizing for any issues related to the Monster Priestess set's double release
  • Replaced the Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness (max stack: x5 items) with the Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness. The new item will allow you to claim as many IoDA items (you can only have 1 in your inventory at a time, but each time you redeem it, you'll be able to get another.)

Still to come: 

  • Updates to the in-game information on Treasure Potions (when they drop, how many, and why) to clear up some confusion*
  • Separating out the Wheel of Doom Merge Shop exclusive items into a separate shop so it is easier to see which items have Merge Shop and Wheel drop variants

Check this post for more information on the Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness.

PS: the Underworld Berry Mug has been added to Dage X Faith's Wedding Rares shop!

* The seasonal Talk Like a Pirate Day event maps, items, and class will arrive next Friday, September 20th.

** Treasure Potions are dropping as intended, but after reading many of your messages, we see that the information in-game could be clearer and will update it to be more explanatory.

Korn Battle Concert Event Leaves September 20th

Only 2 weeks left until this special event goes perma rare

Hope you have been enjoying this special event. On September 20th, 2019 the Korn battle concert will end and become perma rare. Which means when it is gone, it is gone forever. This is your very last chance to experience it and get the rare items. 

http://www.aq.com/cms/images/DN-PatchNotesDefault.jpg

Encore! Encore! Check out the Extended Event

Last week, we extended the Korn battle concert with the song, 'Cold', from their newly-released album, 'The Nothing'. 'Cold' is freaking awesome. It is also a pretty explicit song XD. (Don't worry, we added the radio edit in-game.) We also added new farming drops in the event merge and VIP merge shop.

Friday the 13th X Talk Like a Pirate Day, Pt 1

Our double holiday event begins tomorrow at sundown!

Way, waaaay back in 2012, Aurelio Voltaire sailed to Pirate’s Bay, but his ship sunk just off the coast. The wreckage has lain at the bottom of the sea, undisturbed (?!), ever since... and so has the treasure it carried. As Friday the 13th approached on Lore, his candy-loving companion, Hargoyle, set out to find it. But that was a month ago, and he hasn’t been seen since. This year, put all your points into your LUCK stat, log in, and battle through the sunken pirate ship alongside Aurelio Voltaire as you fight to rescue Hargoyle, recover the treasure, and survive the Sea Witch's curse!

Yarrrr! Th' Best Booty of th' Year is Almost Here

Talk Like a Pirate Day is one of the most popular holidays in AQWorlds. Every year, Quibble Coinbiter returns with new pirate-themed gear from the past, present, and future for heroes who don't ask too many questions about where their loot originated.  Read on for a sneak peek at some of the gear available starting this Friday, September 13th!

Rare collectors, take note! The Sea Witch's Curse Collection Chest will be available for 10,000 ACs and contains ALL of Quibble Coinbiter's 2019 Talk Like a Pirate Day rare items.A few important tips to remember:

  • All of this year's double-holiday event rare items will be available individually from Quibble's shop in Battleon until the event leaves at the end of September.
  • More gear will be added to the chest during the second week of the event. If you buy the chest, you will automatically unlock the new gear.
  • Week 2 additions will include the Nulgath-themed armor set (with an updated design from Noire), the Gothic Pirate Captain (Aurelio Voltaire fans, rejoice!) and Dage's AQ3D pirate set, as translated by AQW guest artist, Lae.

Wheel of Doom IoDA Update

Mega - Super - Incredible Update to the IoDA Tokens

You’ve asked for it, and now everything is ready to do it!  The IoDA tokens are being taken to the next level!  Starting tomorrow night (Friday, September 13th), the Platinum tokens are being retired and replaced.  If you still have any unused tokens, you can still redeem those by following the instructions on this page:
https://www.aq.com/lore/guides/prizeredemption

Wait!  REALLY?

Yes, really!  This has been a much requested feature since the Wheel of Doom made its return.  With the PIoDA tokens, we were able to do a “test” run to see if increasing the awards was feasible.  IT IS!  

Introducing - The WICKED Item of Donated Awesomeness!

The new and improved Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness (or WIoDA for short) is taking the Platinum’s place.  This new token will no longer be left in your inventory.  With each prize awarded, it will be removed so you can obtain a new one.  And another new one.  And another new one.


The stack limit on them is going to show as 1.  But since they are removed now with the placements of your prizes, you can actually get as many of them as you have Treasure Potions for.  You just have to redeem them one by one.

So what other changes are there?

At this time, the same rules as PIoDA will remain in place for what types of prizes you can ask for.  

While we do have even more plans for the Wheel of Doom and the IoDA tokens, those are a subject for another day.  (hint*hint*teaser)
