Cleanse the Valley Of Ghosts

The Shogun of Shadows Story continues this weekend!

The story so far... One of Akiba's greatest enemies has returned to make war on Yokai Isle, and this time, he has a dark new ally. In the first conflict, Emperor Daisho fell in battle, leaving Princess Miko to rally the troops and defend her country from Jaaku, the Shogun of Shadows

This weekend... Empowered by an ancient artifact which enhances her Battle Priestess powers, you, Miko and her cohort head east to Jaaku's fortress. To get there, you must pass through the war-torn Heiwa Village. Once an idyllic town, its people must now fight to defend themselves from the ghosts spawned by the recent Shadow War. Their leader, Koro, offers a bargain - help them drive out the angry spirits, and they'll join you in your quest to slay Jaaku's 8-headed Shadow Dragon!

  • Drive out the angry spirits
  • Help Miko face the pain of her father's loss
  • Bring peace to the people of Heiwa Village

New Farming Set: Void Shogun

This year, one of our focuses has been on featuring a new roster of artists from the AQW community. We have so many talented artists out there, and the reception has been great. This weekend, we're featuring once more Yo Lae, an avid gamer (and Nulgath fan!) who's been a part of our community for years, and their Void Shogun armor set.

If you're a fan of Nulgath's designs, it's time to break out your resources! And if you're not sure who Nulgath or the Nation are, here's your chance to learn. The Void Shogun's quest is based on one of the classic Nulgath quests, the Fiend of Nulgath. 

To accept the quest, you'll need to complete the release in /heiwavalley AND have the Void Monk of Nulgath armor from the merge shop in /quibblehunt.

Gather the following items to turn the quest in to get the pieces of the gear:

  • 1 Unidentified 13
  • 10 Diamonds of Nulgath
  • 1 Nulgath Rune 10 
  • 1 Unidentified 24 
  • 1 Orochi’s Shadow (from the Akiba war boss)

The 0 AC farmable Void Shogun set is a permanent addition to the game, so if you do not have time to farm this weekend, never fear. It will still be here when you do!

Limited Time Set: Shadow Void Shogun

We're calling back to the fan-favorite "Shadow of Nulgath" set and with Yo Lae, created the Shadow Void Shogun set. Find the pieces of this set in your Featured Gear Shop until September 30th.

September Seasonal Shop

Available every year from September 1st - 30th

September is coming soon, and that means... pirates and parties! YARRRRRR! Every September, we celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day and celestial AQW Artist Aranx's birthday. And this year, we're combining those two great themes to kick off a new monthly shop.

Each month, we'll feature a new set, available only during that month each year. There will be two different ways to get the gear from these sets:

1) Total package: Get the entire set and a character page badge for $9.99 USD 

2) Individually: Buy each of the individual pieces from Garek the Traveling Gear Merchant in Battleon.

September Set: Celestial Naval Commander

Remember to keep your wings tightly furled when on deck to avoid getting tangled in the lines. But if the ship starts to sink, you'll be GLAD to have them as you fly to safety!

The set includes:

  • Celestial Naval Commander armor 
  • 2 helms 
  • 2 capes: 1 set of wings, 1 parrot cape
  • 5 cutlasses 
  • 1 Parrot Pet

The total cost to buy all of the gear individually is 4,000 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Celestial Naval Commander pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 2,000 ACs).

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as the monthly upgrade bonus? 

No, this is a different set. Just like the Flame Dragon Warrior, you can buy the entire set for one price on our site. You can ALSO buy the individual pieces in-game.

This set will return EVERY September, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in 2019, or 2020, or 2021, etc.

Think of this like a carousel of gear. Every January, we'll have the January set. Every February, we'll feature the February set. The monthly upgrade bonuses will be separate and distinct bonuses.

If this isn't the monthly upgrade bonus, what IS the bonus in September?

The next upgrade bonus releases on September 7th, and is the Infernal Naval Commander. It will go rare at the end of the month. 

What if I just want ONE of the items?

You're in luck! Talk to Garek in Battleon. He'll be selling the individual pieces of each month's sets.

Where do I get my gear if I buy the full set through the website?

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.

Is this the same as Tier 1 for the new upgrade package?

The seasonal sets are separate from the monthly upgrade bonuses, and won't impact the gear you get with them. The monthly upgrade packs will still have Tier 1 and Tier 2 options.

AQWorlds Patch Notes

Check the list of bug fixes to see what the team has addressed

Reens, Cemaros and the AQW Bug Hunter team are busy squashing the bugs you submit each week to the Bug Tracker at www.Artix.com/bugs.

Please do not send non-release bugs on Twitter.  They will get lost.  Make sure you send bug report forms!

Check back weekly to see if the bug you reported has been addressed.  Please remember that not all bugs are "easy fixes" so some reported and confirmed bugs from each week may not be on the fixed list as they will require more time or a different person to fix them.

If you would like to know how the reports go from you to fixed, check this page:
http://www.aq.com/lore/guides/BugReportFAQ

Bug Fixes:

  1. Sir Icy Naval Tophat has returned to Barnaby’s shop.
  2. Shadow of the Past has been spoken to, and he will play somewhat nicer with the Memories of the Past quest now.
  3. Frogerion Pet is no longer so clingy, and has smoother hoppy.
  4. Twilly is no longer hoarding all the keys for himself.  I told you he would see reason!
  5. Fire Dragon Scales, Fire Dragon Hearts, Pyritium Shards, Perfect Pyritium farming quests from Galanoth at /firewar have returned.

Art Fixes:

  1. Evolved Paragon Cape skulls now have blue eyes.
  2. Loyalty of the Dunes male shoulder is now CC.

Not Fixed & Why:

  1. Horns of the Blood Sworn are placed where the artist wanted them to be.
  2. Dual 6th Betrayal Blade is the size Miltonius sent it as.

 

Another little thing!
In the Story tab of the map, the Shadowfall rising entry showing like this:

This is because this part of the story actually begins with the quest “Hounds and Infernals and Imps, Oh My!” and ends with “YOU again!”.  The tab display is broken up because of map changes during the story. Once you do finish these quests, the display will fix itself.  Unfortunately, because of this, there really isn’t anything we can do to fix it while you are still in the process of doing the story.

The AQW Wiki has some very helpful pages for assisting with the storylines.

http://www.aq.com/lore/guides/BugReportFAQ

Bug Fixes:

  1. The quest “Tea for Me” can be completed now, and the typo has been fixed.
  2. Side Phoenix Blade & Phoenix Blade on Your Back descriptions have been fixed.
  3. Skeletal Fire Mage has returned to BattleunderA from his vacation.
  4. Elissa Keelhaul has a shiny new back button.  Or at least one that works now.
  5. The map Desoloth now has the replay button for all 3 Dragonplane cutscenes.
  6. Orochi has made an appearance now and chased Orocheevil out!

Art Fixes:

  1. Tiki Fun amour unusual CC bits removed.

Not Fixed & Why:

No list this week, but we do need to make a general statement on the art of REALLY old items.  When something is super old, like 2008-2009, generally we aren’t going to change the art.  These items were made using a different style, that many players liked and still like.  So they will remain as they are now.  They will only be fixed if it is something that is actually broke, like pieces of the model not connected.

Moglin Kickstarter is LIVE!

Help us make our dream of moglin plush a reality!

Greetings and salutations friend... we're about to do something crazy together. Want to join us?

You've had moglins at your side in our video games. Now, help us bring Moglins to the real world!


Moglins like Twilly, Zorbak, Twig, & Quibble are magical forest creatures born in our video game worlds. Back our Moglin Kickstarter to help them escape and join you in the real one.

Of course, each Moglin also comes with a code to unlock an in-game pet of itself in multiple Artix Entertainment video games.


Unlock the Master of Moglins CLASS in AQWorlds with the $120 Ultimate Moglin Collection. The Class art shown above is a KickStarter exclusive. (You will still be able to get the class by purchasing all 12 moglins from HeroMart after the KickStarter ends, but the art will be different.)

Oh! Our new Artix Games Launcher lets you play our games (with your moglins) without needing a browser or the Flash plugin.

Put a Moglin on your desk to cheer you on. They’ll keep you company while writing, drawing, coding, and gaming. Moglins love to watch your favorite shows with you...even when no one else will. You can keep the joy for yourself, or give a Moglin to someone you love.


Moglins are the ultimate sidekicks for real life adventurers like you. Help us bring them from the fantasy world into the real one!

Check out all of the Moglins on our Kickstarter Page...

  2. Quibble has been convinced it’s vacation time.
  3. Mitsu Bishi’s shop has now opened.
  4. Book pages in Necrodungeon look better now.
  5. Cutscene “The End?” in Xancave names you now, and vanishing ring mystery has been solved.
  6. Cutscene “Mad Giant” character model now shows up.
  7. Knave1's quest "Weaken the Moya" no longer 1 time only.

Art Fixes:

  2. Herald of Stalagbite female skin is now CC.

Not Fixed & Why:

  1. Vampire Armor/Class males having different eye scleras. The Vampire Class is a male only morph, so the eyes could be recoloured.  The Armor is not a morph so needs to use standard eye colours.
  2. Shadow Blade Shinobi Hair shading.  Hair can come in 3 “tones” or “shades”, dark, light or none.  Helm shading is artist opinion.

Inventory Management Help!

Then today is your lucky day!  Live now on the PTR servers, you can delete 0AC misc items the same as any other item!  Yes, you can delete the full stacks!  

We’ve also made sure that you cannot accidentally delete that treasured 0AC tagged sword/armour/helm/cape as well.

July Upgrade Bonus Winners

Congratulations and thanks for your support

Congratulations to the July upgrade bonus prize winners! Winners received their Golden Ticket prizes earlier today.

Bonus Prize Details

Each month, we will choose FIVE winners from among the list of people who upgraded the previous month. Winners will find a note in their inventory with details on how to contact us with their prize choice. They will get to choose one thing from the following list:

  1. Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness ticket
  2. 5 More bank, inventory, and house spaces (over the cap, if they are already maxed out)
  3. A 20% boost to one weapon of their choice (that they already own)
  4. 2000 AdventureCoins
  5. 1 month membership

And because we know not everyone is able to upgrade every month, we will ALSO choose 1 person from the list of all the everyone who logged in within the last 30 days. They'll receive the same prizes listed above.

Prize FAQ

  1. Only one entry no matter how many times you upgrade. (Upgrades include the 1-12 month upgrade packages and 2000 - 12000 AC packages)
  2. Staff-only/custom items are not eligible
  3. Team members may only donate an item they have legitimately purchased (not gotten for free).
  4. Winners can ask for any item; the list below is just a suggestion. Requests can only be fulfilled if a another account has donated the item. 
  5. If only one donated item is left (example: Great Thief Class) and two players ask for it, the first to email will get the item.
  6. While you can ask for a non-rare, farmable item instead of a rare item, the request can only be granted if another account has donated it.
  7. You can win EIoDA more than once on the same account (if you're very, very lucky)
  8. Eligible items to request include: classes, armors, weapons, capes, helms, pets, houses. Farming resources are not eligible.

If you ask for something that the developers feel may become a problem, they will write back and explain the issue, and ask you to choose another item. 

Where will I see the note? What will it look like?

Winners will see the note in the Miscellaneous Items tab in their inventory. It will look something like this: "January 2018 Golden Ticket"

If I already won the Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness, can I win the Epic one?

Yes, you sure can! (If you're that lucky, we have a couple favors to ask...)

Are there limitations to the boost I can pick?

You can only choose an item (weapon, helm, cape, armor, etc) you currently own. It cannot already have a boost on it.

Available boosts are: Gold, XP, Class Points, Rep, Racial (increased dmg to humans, dragons, etc)

Can an upgraded account win the "log in" prize?

We went back and forth on this. Short answer: no. 
Long answer: The pool of 5 winners is only drawn from people who upgraded in the previous month. If you did not, then you're elgible for the "log in" pool.

We know there are some of you who would love to buy a membership or ACs, but just can't. Real life happens (and so do bills). We want all our free players to have a chance to win awesome prizes like this, too. 

Ultimate Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness

Back in 2012, heroes who spun the Wheel of Doom had a chance to get the Ultimate Item of Donated Awesomeness. Anyone with the UIoDA could choose one item from a list of items donated by other, SUPER generous heroes. For years, you guys have been asking us to bring back the UIoDA. And now... we HAVE!

The Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness is the exact same thing... only you have a chance to get it by upgrading your account with an AdventureCoin or Membership package. (Or a smaller chance just by logging into the game!)

Return to Yokai

4th Chaos Lord Revitalization

This weekend, head back to Yokai Isle as the team updates and polishes the 4th Chaos Lord Saga. If you haven’t beaten Chaos Lord Kitsune yet, now’s the time! 

Changes to the saga zones include:

  • Rebalanced monsters
  • Smoothed out level progression
  • Increased Zodiac Puzzle Key drop rates
  • Updated Book of Lore to send heroes to the proper saga starting point
  • Turned some "invisible / auto-complete" quests visible to make objectives clearer
  • NPC dialogue updates to make your next steps clearer
  • Changed monster locations to avoid confusion (example: monsters related to the Zanar storyline are now in separate rooms, visible only when you're on those quests.)
  • New level 30, 50, and 80 versions of the O-Dokuro boss* (and the exclusive Samurai Panda reward set) for our experienced heroes

The set includes:

  • Samurai Panda armor
  • Shadow Panda Morph helm
  • Bamboo Slicer katana and dual katanas
  • Samurai Panda Tail
  • Crossed Bamboo Slicer Katanas cape

The Samurai Panda set is based on one of my favorite animals - the Red Panda (with the coloring of your more common Giant Panda). It is found in the Himalayas and China, and is, very sadly, endangered. There are only less than 10,000 left in the world. 

Fun fact: the name for the FireFox web browser is based on the red panda's nickname - the Fire Fox.

* Design Notes earlier this week listed multiple levels of the Kitsune boss. The location of those drops has been moved to the level 30, 50, and 80 O-Dokuro bosses.

PS: the Frostval maps will close again on Friday, August 10th, and Quibble's Frostval shop will will not reopen until December. This is your last chance to cool off until Frostval!

Samurai Panda Set

Return to Yokai Isle and fight to unlock new gear!

This weekend, head back to Yokai Isle as the team revitalizes the 4th Chaos Lord Saga in preparation for August's Shogun of Shadows 4-part storyline! We are also adding in high-level versions of the O-Dokuro saga boss for our experienced heroes.

Take on the level 30, 50, and 80 versions of the O-Dokuro boss for a chance to get the pieces of the 0 AC Samurai Panda set.

The set includes:

  • Samurai Panda armor
  • Shadow Panda Morph helm
  • Bamboo Slicer katana and dual katanas
  • Samurai Panda Tail
  • Crossed Bamboo Slicer Katanas cape

The Samurai Panda set is based on one of my favorite animals - the Red Panda (with the coloring of your more common Giant Panda). It is found in the Himalayas and China, and is, very sadly, endangered. There are only less than 10,000 left in the world. 

Fun fact: the name for the FireFox web browser is based on the red panda's nickname - the Fire Fox.
