Lord Of Order Class

Log in to find our 11th Anniversary Class!

Happy birthday AQW! The class team has ironed out the new birthday class, Lord of Order. As the Mirror Realm counterpart to Chaos Lords, Lords of Order buff multiple allies with stat increases and a modest heal, but also have an additional unique trick-- the ability to INVERT enemy damage using their final skill!

How to Unlock the Class

Talk to Quibble Coinbiter in Battleon this weekend to find his 11th Anniversary Shop with the class and armor set. You can also get the class in the Golden Collection Chest. If you’d like to farm the class, its farming quests will be released early next week. (This week's release was SO HUGE, we did not have time to add in the farming quests. Since we said the class would release today, though, we've added it into Quibble's Shop/Chest.)

Mana Regeneration

Lords of Order gain mana from all hits landed in combat, and especially on crits. The amount depends on damage relative to *their own* HP total.

Strike of Order
Attack with an enchanted weapon, dealing damage based on both attack and spell power.
Type: Physical/Magical
MP: 0 
Cooldown 2 seconds

Heighten the inner peace within you and up to 5 allies, strengthening the foundations of your combat style. Applies Empowerment to all targets, increasing Strength, Intellect, Endurance, Dexterity, Wisdom, and Luck by 20% for 10 seconds. 
Type: Physical/Magical
MP: 20
Cooldown: 8 seconds                

Purge corruption from yourself and up to 5 allies, healing everyone for a small amount. You return to battle with new strength-- applies Resurgence, which increases all outgoing damage and reduces all incoming damage by 30% for 12 seconds.
Type: Magical
MP: 20
Cooldown: 12 seconds

Cast a veil of magic that greatly heightens the focus of yourself and up to 5 allies. Applies Clarity, which increases haste by 30%, and hit chance and critical hit damage by 40% for all targets for 8 seconds.               
Type: Magical
MP: 20
Cooldown: 8 seconds 

Blessing of Order
Bestow the unrestrained power of order onto your enemy. Applies Quixotic for 4 seconds, causing enemy attacks to heal instead of dealing damage, and Stability for 25 seconds, which prevents Quixotic from applying. Also applies one stack of Order for 15 seconds, which decreases enemy outgoing damage by 8% and stacks to 5.
Type: Magical
MP: 30
Cooldown: 8 seconds


Servitude: Increases Haste by 20%
Resilience: Decreases incoming physical and magical damage by 15%
Oath of Order: Starting at rank 1, all attacks result in critical hits and can never miss.

Class Design and Use

This class was designed with the primary goal of supporting allies in mind, similar to classes like Bard and StoneCrusher. Its most notable buff is a +30% haste boost for the entire party, something only StoneCrusher could previously do. Lord of Order can also be used in conjunction with existing support classes with minimal buff overlap, as few classes provide group hit chance and critical hit damage buffs. When combined with classes that have high critical hit modifiers or classes that boost critical hit chance, the results can be devastating.

Additionally, this class occupies a sparsely-populated niche in PvP as an anti-dodge tank-- because its auto attack and final skill always result in critical hits that cannot miss, it ignores dodge boosts from classes like Great Thief, Chrono Assassin, Horc Evader, and the rare Blademaster series. When the aura Quixotic is applied to an enemy from the final skill, all their outgoing damage will heal enemies for four seconds-- when combined with its haste boost and low-cooldown heal, this class can outsustain many classes that fail to deal significant damage or carelessly use their strongest skills while affected by Quixotic (hint: in a group PvP where combat is ALREADY chaotic, your enemies may not realize you applied Quixotic until it’s too late). One drawback to Lord of Order in 1v1 is its mana sustainability, so stock up on mana potions if you’d like to increase your chances of winning!

October Seasonal Set: ChronoStriker

Available every year from October 1st - 31st

Every October, we celebrate the anniversary of AQWorlds' launch. This year -- our 10th anniversary -- we're showcasing a set that pays homage to the origin of your hero... and their future. AQWorlds was created when Galanoth the DragonSlayer killed the Eternal Dragon of Time* and the 3 original timelines** merged. 

October Set: ChronoStriker

The Eternal Dragon of Time rules over the past, present, and future. The ChronoStriker armor will enable you to strike at your enemies regardless of the timeline they inhabit. 

There are two ways to get the gear:

1) Total package: Buy the entire set directly through the website for $9.99 USD 

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

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

The set includes:

  • ChronoStriker Armor
  • 3 helms 
  • 4 capes
  • 3 weapons
  • character page badge

Seasonal Set Details

Each month, we'll feature a new set, available only during that month every year. 

Seasonal Sets
September: Celestial Naval Commander
October: ChronoStriker
November - August: ??? - come back to see what we'll bring!

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 October, 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 October?

The current upgrade bonuses are the Guardian of Time sets. These brave warriors defend the timestreams from those who would corrupt them, or use them for their own nefarious purposes. Get more details here

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 October 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.

* To see this in-game, /join thespan and play through the 10th Chaos Lord's story, Iadoa the Chronomancer. Your hero may experience deja vu upon seeing the Eternal Dragon of Time. It is perfectly normal. Do not be alarmed.
** Based on the first three Artix Entertainment games, AdventureQuest, DragonFable, and MechQuest.

Become an 11th Upholder

AQW is coming up on another birthday! And starting RIGHT NOW, we are once again offering the chance to become an AQW Upholder, and unlock the exclusive 2019 Star Swords, plus the Sentinel Class, Star Road zone, and more!

What is an Upholder?

Eleven 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. 

The first eleven years have been an insane rollercoaster, filled with massive events and world-shattering enemies, plus the dreams, plans, and stories of the entire dev team AND all of the heroes who've battled alongside us.

And now, as we prepare for the future of AdventureQuest Worlds (bringing the next version of the game to mobile devices, the web, and more) we are celebrating AQW's 11th birthday and offering YOU the chance to join the AQW Founders by becoming an 11th Upholder!

What does an 11th Upholder get?

As an 11th Upholder, you'll receive:

  • Exclusive Upholder Class: Sentinel Class!*

  • Access to the exclusive Star Sword: Origins zone

  • Star Katana (with color-custom gem+tassel)

  • Star Sword of Nulgath

  • Pyroclastic Star Sword

  • Abyssal Flame Star Sword**

  • Underworld Star Sword

  • Gothic Star Sword

  • Dual Pyroclastic / Abyssal Flame Star Swords

  • 11th Upholder Character Page Badge

  • Infinite bragging rights

The Underworld and Gothic Star Swords come with 2019 and classic variants (because we know you long-time heroes love that classic art!) Once you become a 9th Upholder, you can easily access these Items in your Book of Lore by clicking your 11th Upholder Badge icon in the Badges tab.

* The Sentinel Class will be available for ALL previous Upholders and Founders as our way of saying thanks for supporting us in the past!

** The Abyssal Flame star sword replaced the Lightovian Star Sword announced earlier in the month.

How do I become an 11th Upholder?

All that we ask is that you help support AQW the game undergoes its exciting rebirth!

Please note that only Upgraded Legend Memberships count towards 11th Upholder.

Want to know if you're already an Upholder?

That's easy! Just click the Manage Account link on the left under the ACCOUNT section. As soon as you sign in you'll see when your membership expires. 

Cool! When Do I Get My Upholder Gear?

11th Upholder badges, Star Swords, and Sentinel Class will be awarded starting October 1st! You will find your 11th Upholder Badge in your Book of Lore in the Other Badges tab.

Only Memberships Count?

Yes. You can use Artix Points on the Portal site or any method in AQW to upgrade, but it MUST be an AQW Membership. AdventureCoins DO NOT COUNT TOWARD 11th Upholder.
