Battle Concert Series Class Skills Breakdown

Get ready to ROCK the battlefield!

To celebrate our new musical event, the class team has been hard at work on new classes: Heavy Metal Necro and Nu Metal Necro. The Nu Metal Necro class is a version that’s easier to both obtain and use, and ideal for lower level players. The color-customizable Heavy Metal Necro Class will be released as part of our VIP Event Collection package; both that class and its identical farmable variant, the Dark Metal Necro, are built for more experienced players and featurea momentum-based playstyle that keeps the risk high and the damage higher!

The variants of these classes will go rare after this event ends, but their skills, icons, and animations will return during future musical events.

Get the full class skills breakdown here!

Mogdring the Harvester

Our Moglin KickStarter Release Builder Story!

Nibbleon, the Greenguard hometown of your favorite moglin friends, has come under attack by an army of… ROBOTS?! Nugget and Zilla, Nibbleon’s two top hunters, have been fighting them back but moglins just keep disappearing. Someone -- or something -- is moglin-napping them, and they need your help to find their friends, save them, and take out whatever dark entity is responsible!

Log in and /join redfurvalley to begin the adventure!

Building the Moglin KickStarter Release: The Story!

This story was crafted during the week-long visit of our AdventureQuest Moglins “Story Designer” backer, Doom Regin Doom, who visited the lab earlier this year. We want to sincerely thank him for making the area possible. He was extremely focused and excited to make a fun and interesting moglin-related story for everyone to enjoy.

After he had an armor made for his NPC, Doom Regin Doom asked the team to release a variant as the reward set this weekend. He was very specific about the farming quest details: no dailies, no 1% drops needed. Just farming and fun! 

We had a blast when he and his parents visited the lab for a week to meet and work with us.  He is a great guy, and if you see him in game, be sure to say hi and toss him some thanks for not-so-cuddle moglin creation!

Plus, you can read his interview with Artix in the AdventureQuest 3D Design Notes here.

New Doom Set: Underworld Thronetaker

Available in the Wheel of Doom merge shop!

The Wheel of Doom spins round and round... and this week, as we prepare for a dark new event next week, we're keeping the theme strong with an all-new underworld set in the Wheel of Doom merge shop: the Underworld Thronetaker!

Find the gear in the Wheel of Doom merge shop! 

  • Underworld Thronetaker armor
  • Three Underworld crown helms
  • Underworld Thronetaker cape
  • Underworld Thronetaker Blade (single and dual wield)

Get your Free Spins

Everyone loves to get prizes... and that's why we brought back back free spins for the Wheel of Doom!

  • Members get one free spin a day while their upgrade is active
  • All players get one free spin a week. 

See the Free Spins Design Notes for more details.

Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness

We've gotten a lot of really positive feedback after introducing the free spins... but also a lot of you who wanted 1) a way to make sure you got an Item of Donated Awesomeness and 2) kept spinning in a quest to get the Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness to drop from the Wheel... and then not didn't get it.

That's why we introduced the Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness. This item is available from the Doom Merge Shop, so even if you don't receive the EIoDA as a bonus prize, you can save up your Treasure Potions and get the PIoDA.

Important Points

  • The PIoDA will be a Wheel of Doom merge shop exclusive. 
  • Cost: 1,000 Treasure Potions. 
  • You can get both the EIoDA (from the Wheel) and the PIoDA (from the merge shop)
  • The PIoDA currently stacks up to x5. We are currently planning to raise the cap later this year.

At a cost of 1,000 Treasure Potions, that means a member who ONLY uses their one free spin per day/week will need to log in every day for about 2.5 years to get it... but they WILL get it eventually. 

* Exceptions include staff personal items, custom weapon contest prizes, HeroMart items, etc
