Unlock the Flame Dragon Warrior

Get the exclusive Class and Armor Set

Vasumar the Flame Dragon Warrior, leader of the Fang of Flames, is a deadly opponent. Once a fierce dragon-gang leader in OverSoul, he's come to attack the dragons of Vasalkar's Lair. You can unlock his armor set, the Flame Dragon Warrior Class, and a character page badge for $9.95 USD on our upgrade page.

The Flame Dragon Warrior's History

We released our first idle game, AQ:Dragons in December 2014. Back in 2017, we needed to update the game to Unity 5. We also had to remove the AQW account linking feature which awarded the Flame Dragon Warrior gear in AQWorlds. Because we did NOT want this set to go perma-rare, we made it available directly on our upgrade page for the same price as the original AQ:Dragons upgrade package ($9.95 USD).

One of the biggest challenges about creating and maintaining mobile games is the way the app stores and software developers are also required to update and maintain their products. That can lead to version conflicts which require updating different components of a game or, like with the 2017 changes to AQ:Dragons, significantly overhauling parts of it.

BUT on the plus side, if you didn't have a device which could run AQ:Dragons, or if you weren't aware of the Flame Dragon Warrior Class before, you'll be able to unlock the full Flame Dragon Warrior set in AQW! 

Flame Dragon Warrior set + Class

Buying the Flame Dragon Warrior set unlocks the full armor set PLUS the Flame Dragon Warrior CLASS!  After purchase, check your Book of Lore for the link to the shop to get the gear.

The Flame Dragon Warrior is a VERY powerful class with a skillset that's extremely useful for either boss fights (like taking down dragons), pvp (slaying DragonSlayers) or just everyday use farming (in the Dragon's Lair) .

Flame Dragon Warrior Class Skills

Auto Attack: Pretty basic. 2 second cooldown.
You need to be able to swing around your weapon somehow.

Fire Dragon's Roar: 10 Mana, 4 second cooldown
Blast 3 targets with flame to deal fire damage.
Builds stacks of Dragon's Roar which affects other abilities.

This is the ability you want to keep stacked. Stacking this ability will allow you other skills (Which we will go over) an extra kick to them

Burn Of Akriloth: 25 Mana, 15 second cooldown
Akriloth grants you the power to do a 400% DoT for 10 seconds, with a 25% chance to stun your opponents for 6 seconds with Smothering Smoke, Stacks of Dragon's Roar increase damage.

Yes, all those words and numbers are correct. You can get an extremely high DoT AND do a pretty nifty amount of damage too and even a good chance for stuns. This skill is really good for beating down something (or someone) really quick without hassle. 
Note: The DoT CAN be applied even without stacks of Dragon's Roar, BUT YOU WILL NEED THE STACKS if you wish to do damage as well.

Dragon Strength: 20 Mana, 12 second cooldown
A Moderate Damage Skill.  Applies Ablaze which increases Strength by 25% for 8 seconds. If stacks of Dragon's Roar are present, removes all stacks of Dragon's Roar and applies Extra Defense which reduces all damage taken by 40% for 15 seconds.

Feeling a tad too squishy? Want to buff yourself up like a (small) tank? With stacks of Dragon's Roar, your defense power grows AS WELL as your strength! It's a GREAT thing if you want to survive a few more hits and make sure you can take your opponant down. Goes great with a healer.

Fire Dragon's Scales & Dragon's BloodRank 4 Passives

The magic of dragon scales gives you 30% spell resistance.
The power of dragons blood gives you 30% endurance increase

Neat little passives. Helps you survive more. Not much to say about it.

Burning Rage: 30 Mana, 15 second cooldown

DESTROY with the power of your rage and damage! Also applies a 350% DoT over 8 seconds.
Double the DoTs, double the fun! The fun WILL be doubled with this skill! This is your boomshot, the skill you *wisely* use as you don't wanna waste your mana compltely (I'm bad with mana at times...) Anyways, as well as getting a decent strike off, you also get another DoT just to be more of a bother. Works quite nicely with Dragon's Strength. 

Rank 10 Passive: Dragon's Burn
Increases your DoTs by 30%

Do you like your DoTs? Of course you do. Do you want to make them even better? OF COURSE YOU DO! Similar to Dragon Shinobi's Rank 10 passive, Dragon's Burn will give your DoTs even BIGGER damage ranges! it's a PERMANENT increase!

Overall, you can survive pretty well with the class. Your power can be used for high damage and DoT or tank it out, taking hits from everything that decides to come your way.

New Item Set:Alpha Winter Defender

Available in the Wheel of Doom and Merge shop!

The Wheel of Doom spins round and round... and this week, as the Northern hemisphere continues battling ice, snow, and other wintery dangers, we've got an all-new, super-cool set for you -- the Alpha Winter Defender

New Gear from the Wheel of Doom!

We know a lot of you are raring to redeem your free spins... so we're adding a full new Epic rarity set for you, crafted by AQW Community Artist, Rare! Each of the Alpha Winter Defender set pieces will be available from the Wheel of Doom and from the Doom merge shop. The bright blue fabric parts of the set shown below are color customizable.

Pieces of the set include:

  • Winter Defender Alpha armor
  • Winter Defense Scarf Helm + Locks
  • Snow Owl Helm + Locks
  • Winter Defense Beret + Locks
  • Winter Defense Rifle Alpha
  • Defender's Snow Owl Pet
  • Snow Owl on your Shoulder cape
  • Winter Defense Backrifle

All our seasonal Winter Wheel of Doom gear - including the Winter Defender set - will leave leave Wednesday, March 20th, the first day of Spring.  This gear will return next year during the Winter months.

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, earlier this month, 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.

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

This Weekend: Memet's Nightmare

A Nightmare's Nightmare: Rainbows and Sparkles

When a super-happy, over-sparkly calico cartoon character* takes over the Dream Network, Memet and the creatures of the Nightmare Realm are declared illegal. Writers, artists, and heroes who depend on darkness, destruction, and monstrous mayhem for inspiration are struggling to survive. Help her restore the Dream Network so that heroes who revel in gloom and doom can stop hiding from the kawaii-cuteness plaguing their home!

This weekend, log in and /join spookeasy to begin Memet's nightmarish adventure! And if you've got a Twitter account, wish her "Happy Belated Birthday!" 

Battle the monsters in this week's event for a chance to get:

  • Super kawaii flamethrowers**
  • A very cheery pink Alpacacorn pet
  • Happy Balloons!!!
  • And more

Then talk to Memet in /spookeasy to find her "Nightmare Novelties" shop with the Spookeasy Nightmare and Memet Animatronic armor sets.

* Who is clearly a fan of Lisa Frank's rainbows, unicorns, and glitterbomb overload
** The armor and helm used by the SparkleGuards are available in Vesper's birthday shop in your Game Menu.

Memet's Belated Birthday 

Memet the Nightmare Moglin*** is the staff persona for Memet, AQWorlds' lead writer. She is the one who writes and designs the weekly releases you battle through. She is a huge fan of dark, offbeat, Lovecraftian/Geiger style art and fantasy... which is why she's a nightmare creature.

We usually celebrate her birthday in November, but because of a very joyous-but-time-intensive) special release for J6 and his wife (aka, they had little J6 2.0!), we had to push it back to give J time to do all the awesome new BG art.

*** Technically, she is really a nightmare creature masquerading as a moglin.

January: Celebrate ALL the Birthday! 

Ok, maybe not ALL. But many! Our month-long celebration of team member birthdays continues this weekend with Memet's belated birthday. Last week, we celebrated Vesper and Crulon's birthdays with Vesper's Pink, Purple, and Prismatic Shop and Crulon's Djinn riddle quests.

Still to come:

  • Friday, January 18: Nulgath's birthday scavenger hunt + birthday shop
  • Friday, January 25: Stryche's Werebear story, Part 1 + Captain Rhubarb's V-ARRRRRy happy birthday shop
  • Wednesday, January 30: Axeros' birthday merge shop

AQWorlds' 2019 Game Plan

Mobile Port, Queen of Monsters' finale, and more!

Welcome to the new year! AdventureQuest Worlds is officially, for real, over a decade old. That's 10 years of adventures, epic boss battles, crazy banana suit-wearing, pancake-flipping... and CHAOS! Thanks to you and your fellow heroes, we are still updating the game every week with new stories, challenge fights, and rewards... our game grows each and every week.

But growing is not the same as evolving, and that's what we're here to talk about today - our plans to grow and evolve AdventureQuest Worlds in 2019. 

What are the plans for AQWorlds in 2019? 

This is the easiest question, and the most exciting answer:

  • AQW 2 / Go / Mobile / (insert new working title here) blasts into OVERDRIVE
  • Queen of Monsters finale (it will take about a year to tell the entire story)
  • Quality of Life improvements on the web version
  • All our weekly updates and seasonal holiday events

AQW 2: the Expansioning

What are our plans for AQW Mobile?

AQWorlds Mobile is a misnomer -- the next version of AQWorlds will play on your PC, mobile devices, and maybe Steam or consoles! 

Plans for the next evolution of AQW include:

  • Letting you log in with your existing character 
  • Keeping your current character's items
  • Increased performance and less lag 
  • Scrolling backgrounds (like HeroSmash)
  • Port over 99.99% of the existing items
  • A more robust PVP system 
  • Leaderboards + rewards
  • Better botting detection and prevention
  • Trading is on the wishlist. It is possible in AQW: Mobile (not AQW:web), but we'll need a lot more time spent on figuring out the logistics before we say it will 100% be included.

The first, biggest push at the moment is to make sure we have solid character, load, login, and chat systems in place. Also in current development - the map system. 

We have a team wishlist for AQW:Mobile, but just as importantly… we want to know what YOU want to see added in for AQW:Mobile. Next week, we'll hold an online, real-time Q&A in our official Artix Entertainment Discord server. Keep an eye on the Design Notes for a date and time.

Tweet your wishlist to #AQWMobileWishes

so the team can keep a running tally.

Who will work on AQW Mobile?

Warlic (the AQW:Mobile project lead) got the ball rolling earlier last year. Then he was joined by AQWorlds’ lead coder, Yorumi, along with a few new programmers. They’ve been making steady progress, and at the end of this month, the group will be joined by Artix and Zhoom. 

Zhoom (who is being borrowed from the AQ3D for a bit) will focus on making sure the game’s infrastructure and architecture can support everything (ALL THE THINGS!!!) we want AQW:Mobile to do. 

Artix is coming on board to make sure the game plays as well as the current game does, and then will work with the team to make it even BETTER.

When will work begin on AQW Mobile?

Artix’s goal is to have something you guys can log into this year. It's going to be a challenge to meet that goal, but I believe we are up to it! Although we are automating the majority of the item ports, with tens of thousands of items, this will be an on-going process. We will start out porting the most popular and widely-used items (based on how many active accounts have them), and go from there. Like all our main games, AQW:Mobile’s development will be an active, ongoing project.

“But… didn’t Artix show a picture of AQW:Mobile like 2 years ago?” Well… kind of.  But not the way you’re thinking. The first try at making AQW: Mobile began in 2016, when we began working with an offsite company (so the current in-house team could stay focused on weekly updates).  That team of highly-talented coders put together a great prototype*… but one that ultimately wouldn’t scale up to what we needed, performance-wise. 

What we want for the next version of AQWorlds -- what we need -- is something most mobile games don't really have to do.  The level of customization, the type and amount of gear we want to bring over... we're always so frakkin' SPECIAL! And that's what makes us awesome, but also really tricky to port.

* Pictured in the image at the top of this post.

Where and Why are we doing this?

This new version of AQWorlds will let you keep your current character and items, but will let us open the game up to many, many more players who currently play games on other devices. 

This is hands-down our highest priority, because even more than the downloadable Artix Games Launcher (which lets us bypass concerns about Adobe FlashPlayer dying), bringing AQW to more platforms will let us keep its development going strong… and getting even bigger.

Queen of Monsters’ Saga Finale

When the rest of the devs at the Secret Underground Lab began their week-long Game Jam, Memet (the lead writer for AQWorlds) began a 3-4 week long WRITING JAM. She, Artix, and I met late last year to review and finalize plans for the year-long Queen of Monsters’ Saga finale.

She is spending the next month outlining the next year of main saga updates. This is not the end of AQWorlds’ main story… it is just the beginning, and an entry into whole new (aq)worlds. 

This story will take about a year to tell, and releases will begin after the early-year holiday events (like Carnival, Hero’s Heart Day, Lucky Day etc)

Spider-witches… Feral Troll Druids… Illusion-Controlling Infernals… ancient artifacts… and more? This is going to be an adventure to DIE for (but it is really, really important that you live!)!

Quality of Life Improvements on the Web

Over the last few months, Yorumi’s been able to add in a number of updates. So far, we’ve added in… 

  • Increasing bank, inventory and friend spaces
  • Adding searching and item previews to the bank
  • Adding the ability to hide other players’ capes and pets (releasing tonight!)

Originally, we did not think changes like this would be possible until the launch of the new server and client on the web. But working together, last year Warlic and Yorumi got a version of the live / current client working and able to be updated. 

The inability to update the existing game client was one of the main reasons we began rewriting the server and client -- we had reached the limits of the game, and it had grown too big to publish.  Now that we ARE able to make changes and improvements again, we have re-focused our plans, and the new server and client will be exclusively for AQW:Mobile. 

The new server Yorumi built for AQW (the web version) is the foundation that AQW: Mobile is built on. Without needing to accommodate a decade’s worth of functionality and features that had been built by many hands over many years, he was able to strip the server down to something clean, polished, and perfectly-poised to serve as the backbone of our NEW AQWorlds.

If you were one of the heroes who helped us test on the PTR servers, and have saved up your Quest Mission Sprocket, a quest to redeem them for your Sir Ver Bank pet will be added next week.

And as Yorumi has time, he’ll be free to investigate more changes to the web version of AQW.

Wait... HOW will all these things happen?!

There is a lot to do to make all of this happen, which is why we are segmenting the team intelligently. The team members responsible for the weekly releases and updates will continue working on those as AQW:Mobile programmers focus on its development.

We plan to leave the current web version of AdventureQuest Worlds up forever... or as long as the internet lets us. But no matter what Adobe does (or doesn't) do, we plan to have a version of AdventureQuest Worlds available for you to play.

We've learned a lot from the last decade of game development. That is what looking to the past should be for -- learning so that as you look to the future, you can do/build/be better, without making the same mistakes. It's always better to look to the future than dwell on the past, once you’ve learned from it.

With the new server, a team of highly-talented programmers, Artix for creativity and design direction, your feedback and requests from the last decade, and the game we have to serve as a road-map… our journey is really, finally underway.

Coming Soon: Nulgath's Birthday

Twisted Trials and Terror are headed your way

Nulgath the ArchFiend, Lord of the Oversoul and ruler of the Nation, has not been seen on Lore or in the Oversoul for several years now.* In his absence, his minions are growing ambitious. Even... giddy with all the opportunities for profit and plunder they see.

Join us next Friday for two adventures - for fans and members of his Nation, Nulgath’s Twisted Court Jester will send you on a torturous scavenger hunt for wicked rewards. 

For all of you dedicated to defending Lore, your battle awaits! Vasumar, the Flame Dragon Lord, has secured a route into our world... and his sights are set on Vasalkar's Lair. Fight draconic creatures flooding in from the Oversoul and keep the red dragon's lair free of invaders!

Whether you're a fan of Nulgath the ArchFiend or just love pounding on draconic monsters from another world, the adventures begin next Friday! Along with the scavenger hunt and micro-war, we'll have an all-new birthday shop with seasonal and perma-rares (including the Void Awakening sets from Oversoul) plus an update to the Enchanted Nulgath Nation House.

* 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 their dedication and enjoyment, we hold an event in-game each year to celebrate the character and give them a hefty dose of the gear they love.

Our Upgrade Bonuses Level Up... Choose your Reward!

In the past, our upgrade bonus sets would only be available for a single month, and then would become permanently rare. We made some really incredible gear... that no one can get now. I've talked with many of you individually to brainstorm and get feedback, and starting this month, our upgrade bonuses will become permanently available. We will continue to add new upgrade bonuses regularly* - the big difference is...

You'll be able to choose WHICH upgrade bonus set you want!

Next month, when we add another upgrade bonus pack, the Void ChronoKnight will still be available. So as you select the membership or AdventureCoin pack you want, you'll also choose which upgrade bonus reward you want. You'll unlock the character page badge and Book of Lore Shop like normal.

* We still plan to add a new pack each month.

New for 2019: Upgrade Set Series

We know many of you love that feeling of unlocking exclusive items, and feel really special when you have something that only a handful of other players can equip. We're bringing that to our Upgrade Packs with Upgrade Set series. 

Going forward, each time we do a new upgrade pack in a given theme (like "Nulgath's Void" or "Yokai" or "ShadowFall"), we’ll add it to the series. You'll need to get the first set in a series before you can unlock the next. 

Upgrade Pack Changes: Why Now?

As I talked with many of your fellow AQW players about these changes, one question repeated itself over and over: "why do we need to do this? Why now?" 

Development for AQW:Mobile is going to go into overdrive in January. With AQW:Mobile, we will not be able to do nearly as many rare items (this is in large part for game performance reasons, like managing asset loading, just like in AQ3D).

It is also a pretty big blow to the artists and future players to lose access to entire sets of gear every month (one reason we did not make the Northlands Royalty upgrade sets rare). 

We want to avoid that. We want to keep all the incredible art the team makes available for everyone, no matter when they start playing. And as we move into new platforms (mobile devices, Steam, ... maybe consoles?!) we want to make sure that art is available for the new heroes who will join you.

 

2018 Holiday AC Bonus: Get up to 50% More Free ACs

Get up to 50% more FREE bonus AdventureCoins when you buy any Adventure package until January 10th! If you're excited about all our new January birthday events, new gear in the Wheel of Doom, or our 2019 holiday rare gear, now's the time to top up your ACs and get even more for free.

The bigger the AC package you buy, the more free AdventureCoins you'll get!

12000 AC pack: 6000 extra ACs (50% more ACs)

5000 AC pack: 2000 extra ACs (40% more ACs)

2000 AC pack: 500 extra ACs (25% more ACs)

900 AC pack: 100 extra ACs (11% more ACs)

* Note: bonus AdventureCoins are only available with AdventureCoin packages. The special bonus offer does not apply to membership packages.

Happy Birthday, Vesper!

Pink, Purple, and Prismatic Birthday Gear is HERE!

Artix Entertainment is lucky to have one of the most sincerely positive and upbeat people I've ever met. Vesper, the Secret Underground Lab's office assistant, HeroMart elf, and the host of our weekly videos, levels up in real life today, and we're celebrating with the kind of gear she'd love to wear in real life! 

One of Vesper's most awesome attributes is her constantly-changing hair color. We never know what hue she'll be sporting on any given day, which is where the "prismatic" part of her birthday shop comes in. She's a huge fan of the colors pink and purple in real life, too... so in honor of THAT (and bringing more /cheer to the new year) we've dyed a number of the cutest, most awesome items in-game pink and purple!

Log in all month long to find Vesper's seasonal birthday shop in the game menu. 

It features items like...

  • Pomegranate Twist armor and helms
  • Safiria's Rose Tribute Armor
  • Royal Doom Lord Valtrith and Safiria armors
  • Kawaii School Uniform armor
  • Magical Blossoming Bush armor

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as the monthly upgrade bonus? 

Monthly upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages. Seasonal set packs are bought separately. Just like the Flame Dragon Warrior pack, you can buy the entire set directly, for one price, on our site. You can ALSO buy the individual pieces in-game.

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

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

The next upgrade bonus will be available starting January 4th, and are the golden and platinum Void ChronoKnight armors. 

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 the set through January 31st.

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

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.
