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:

  • Treasure Chest item description updated.
  • Ghostly Chibifar0 Bank now opens when pet is clicked on.  The hitbox was misaligned.
  • Corporate Cottage will now show owner name properly.
  • Artist Alley blank room bug resolved. 

Art Fixes:

  • CyberCaster Armor female coat has been stitched together.
  • Paragon Tophat now has fully CC hair.
  • Lord of Order 'Wrap' capes have been de-lagged as much as possible.
  • Hollowborn Shadow Shaper's Shadow Minion was given a boost so it can see over your name.
  • Abyssal Flame Pistol now has art on both versions.

Please remember folks, not every art report sent in is actually a bug.  Bug, Opinion or Engine Limitation

Extras:

Space Daimyo has been retagged as Seasonal.  When the most beloved Palapuppy went to his new new playground, it was decided that all existing versions of him with his armour on would become Seasonal Rare.  Each year, you can obtain a new Daimyo pet on his birthday and put one of the armours on him!

Speaking of retagging things, some of you sharp eyed folks may notice some rarities changing on items in the recent past and near future.  This is not a bug!  This is a directly relating to a *hinthintwink* involving the Wheel of Doom.

Which leads us to the last bit.

Zohrah tells me a lot of folks trying to redeem IoDA tokens were having a hard time getting to the Lorepedia Page with the instructions on it.  Some time was spent attempting to bribe Swaggy and he has graciously agreed to tell players how to get to this page himself instead of that link on the tokens!

Memet's Birthday Harvest

Celebrate Memet's Birthday with a Nightmarish New Adventure!

As we begin out three-part 2019 Harvest Fest event, Memet, the Nightmare Moglin, is back with a deliciously destructive new event for you. She needs your help to perfect her formula before the Harvest Day festival so everyone can experience her tasty, lab-grown meat-kibble. But ask yourself... is that REALLY something you want to eat? REALLY?!

As the good Dr. Ian Malcolm said in the original Jurassic Park... "Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should." 

  • Help her use the cutting-edge (literally!) DNA editing MOGLN technology to create better food
  • Slay monsters to bring back meat for her machine(ations)
  • Test the food you produce on willing (and hungry) creatures
  • Enter... Memet's Meat Lab!

MMMMMMmeaty rewards

Battle the monsters and boss in this weekend's event to unlock all-new reward items, including:

  • Memeat Formal Wear armor set (you'll go gaga... or gaGAG over it!)
  • Meatlab Worker armor set
  • Meat Nubbin pet + morph helm
  • Memeat + AdipOHNOES pets
  • And more!

Plus, find the Memet Baby DragonRider pet available in her Artist Alley Shop (/join artistalley)!

Who is Memet?

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.... and she is leveling up in real life. She’s crafted a nutritious (and terrifying) new event for you this week to battle through while she takes all next week off to relax and take on her own challenge -- NaNoWriMo. Wish her luck or happy birthday on Twitter!

Artist Alley Showcase: 2019 Edition

You cannot make a game without art! And some of the most talented artists I have ever met make (or have made) gear for you in AdventureQuest Worlds. We wanted to recognize their talent by giving each of them a space in-game to craft gear that they felt most showed who they are as artists. So /artistalley was born! The shops in our Featured Artist Alley contain gear by individual AQW team and community artists.* 

This weekend, /join artistalley to meet them and see all of the items they've crafted escpecially for you! We found Lae, Darkon, Kotaru, Dage the Evil, J6, Ghost, and many of our other artists when they began playing our games, just like you and all of the artists featured this weekend.

This year's artist alley update features:

  • Lae
  • Tyronius
  • Kotaro
  • Bido
  • Ferozakh
  • PP2
  • Hikari

And if you're new to Artist Alley, don't miss the shops by our other artists:

  • Blade, Dage, and Diozz
  • Ghost, Hizu, J6, and Jemini
  • Memet, Mido, and Nulgath
  • Roroth, Solrac, and Veneeria
  • Vokun and Zoshi

Harvest Fest Returns: Are You Hungry for Adventure?!

Every year, the Harvest Fest is a time to relax and celebrate another year of prosperity with your loved ones. A time to forget about the horrors of Mogloween and look forward to another happy Frostval in the coming weeks as you digest the giant feast that Oishii the Troll Chef has prepared for you.

Sample the tastiest battles AQW has to offer when you /join Feast, and don't miss adventures in:

  • Harvest - Help Oishii, the Craziest Chef around!
  • Turdraken - Take on the Turdraken for a deadly AND delicious battle!
  • Float - Help Scott the Pilgrim save the Harvest Parade!

November Seasonal Set: Harvest Hunters

Available every year from November 1st - 30th

November is when the Fall season REALLY hits in the United States. Pumpkin Spice everything is in stores, the leaves have fallen (or are starting to) and the temperatures around the underground lab finally drop below 70 degrees Fahrenheit. This is harvest time in the Northern Hemisphere, and Thanksgiving in the United States, Canada, China, Germany, Grenada, Japan, and Norfolk Island. To help ALL our heroes celebrate, this month's seasonal set features the Harvest Hunters - the HeroHunter and Lycan Stalker armors.

November Set: The Harvest Hunters

Unlock the Hero Hunter or Lycan Stalker armors and all the Harvest Hunter accessories!

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. (starting tonight at 6PM EST)

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

The set includes:

  • Hero Hunter Armor
  • Lycan Stalker Armor
  • 3 helms 
  • 3 capes
  • 5 weapons
  • character page badge

Seasonal Set Details

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

Seasonal Sets
January: ArchFiend OverLord
February: Obsidian Samurai
March: Legion Warseeker
April: Bio-War Cultist

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 November, 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 November?

The next upgrade bonus will be available from November 2nd - 30th, and are the Apocalyptic DragonLord 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 November 30th.

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

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.
