Happy New Year's Eve

A New Year... and a New Decade Await!

It is December 31, 2019. We are about to begin a new year, a new decade, and a new series of EPIC adventures! But before we do, we need to give one last battle-cry for the bosses and events of 2019. Tonight, log in as our New Year's Eve maps and holiday seasonal items return and we extend our DOUBLE holiday server boost. Plus, at midnight as our January seasonal set becomes available once more. Then join us this Friday and take on our NEW New Year's Boss... the Chrono-Phoenix!

We hope you're having a fantastic holiday with your family and friends! Thank you for battling alongside us throughout 2019,and for supporting us with through purchasing Memberships and AdventureCoins! We've got plans for an amazing, crazy, and AWESOME 2020, and I can't wait to battle alongside you all as we build it together!

Tonight, /join newyear to replay all our holiday events and -- if you're impatient for 2020 to get here (like I am) take out your rage on the 2019 Ball monster. Head North from the Enter area and defeat it for a chance to get the pieces of the Glacial Knight armor set.

Return on Friday, January 3rd for all our 2020 rare items, our new upgrade bonus pack, and a holiday gift of 500 free AdventureCoins!

2019: The Chrono Phoenix Rises

The Chrono-Phoenix is a part-organic, part-mechanical creature created to track the cyclical death and re-birth of the year. But its gears are going haywire, and if you don't help Lucca the Chronomancer fix it, 2020 might NEVER arrive!

 

2018: A Chilling Tale

A new year dawns for the Yetis of EverFrost Valley, and a new generation of their warriors is ready to undergo an ancient rite to welcome the new year. You are the first human ever invited to join in the ritual slaying of the ice spirit Chillbite, Guardian of the Valley. On December 29th, celebrate the new year with your new tribe… if you survive!

2017: Archive of Time

Corruption will result in alteration of existing persons, places, and things in Lore. Correction required before countdown expires or changes will become per-pe- *static* SIGNAL LOST.

2016: Future of Fear

2016 is starting off with a bang.. and blasts… and an attack on Northpointe by the Queen of Monsters’ new Captain, Goregrim! The forces of Good, Evil, and Chaos will need to come together, or Northpointe WILL fall!

2015: A Monstrous Future

With the defeat of the Chanpion of Chaos last summer, the Queen of Monsters has been released from her prison... and she is ready to show our world how little we REALLY know about the nature of monsters! Tonight's release continues the Rise of the WorldBreaker trilogy in the /Northstar map.

Tonight: Battle to reach Karok the Fallen, but FIRST you'll need to face don a mysterious new monster... one HE did not create, but who has been commanded to follow him. Coming FRIDAY, you'll be able to face Karok the Fallen himself! (And have a VERY small chance to get the DarkIce version of his mage armor!)

If we don't want Karok's horde of monsters to join forces with the QUEEN of monsters, it's time to bare our blades and BATTLE ON... or the future will be MONSTROUS!

Old and New Gear for the New Year!

Talk to Quibble Coinbiter in Battleon to get The Fallen Mage Armor with a 15% Class Points bonus! You can also talk to Lim in the NewYear map to access all the returning seasonal rares PLUS find the 2015 New Year's Ball house item in the New Year house shop!

2014: Year of the Horse!

For the 2014 New Year's release, we wanted to take some inspiration from the Chinese zodiac. 2014 is the year of the horse, so naturally this is what we've come up with...

 

In Norse mythology, Hrimfaxi and Skinfaxi are the steeds of Night and Day, carrying the chariots of the sun and moon across the sky. Their equivalents in Lore are Frostmane and Embermane, and Ulfgar (remember him?) is worried that something is wrong with them. Embermane, the Steed of Day, has gone missing and her brother Frostmane is keeping the land in perpetual darkness. It's up to you to find her so she can bring back the sun - and bring in the new year.

So then, who's that nightmare steed, you ask? Is he what's keeping Embermane from returning to the sky? /Join frostmane to find out!

2013: A New Dawn for a New Year!

Save the sun, Hero, or tomorrow will never come! When a Werepyre petitions the Nocturan Creed, guardians of the night, to ensure he will never be harmed by the light again, you will need to work with the Lumina Votari to protect the sun and save the world! Journey across Lore to ensure that a new dawn - and a New Year - will begin!

2012: Time for Chaos

2012 was the Year of Chaos, and we started the year off with a BANG! Literally! But tonight, you'll go BACK in time to meet Professor Iadoa (Professor Yana, anyone?), a famous Chronomancer who has been missing for decades. He should have stayed gone, though, because now that he's back... it's time for Chaos!


The New Year's ball frozen in place. All clocks have stopped.

2011: The Chaos Continued

Lim has returned to the frozen north to help is close out 2010 with a BANG! Literally.

Well, that's what he INTENDED but once again he can't get his science all in one bucket and he needs your help to stop the ever hungry Icemaster Yeti from munching on this gizmos and doo-dads.

We hope you guys have all had a great holiday. We all took a little time out of insane production schedule to spend some time with our friends and travel hoe to see family, but we are SO READY to get moving on all our plans for 2015! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR! (Almost.)

New Year, New Year!

On Monday, December 31st, we'll release our 2019 New Year's shop, with the 2019 weapons and a host of new wintery gear, PLUS Vesper's pink, purple, and prismatic birthday shop!

NorthlandsMonkClassSkills

'Tis the Season

This year we celebrate the time of giving and getting together with the seasonal Northlands Monk Class! Northlands Monks embody the holiday spirit with its arsenal of presents, harsh winter winds, and the ability to deliver a devastating attack upon its foes when fighting alongside allies.

How to Unlock the Class

There are four ways to obtain the Northlands Monk Class:

  1. Talk to Quibble Coinbiter in Battleon to find his shop. Immediately unlock the class for 2,000 AdventureCoins, or buy individual pieces of the Lord of Order set.
  2. Talk to Quibble Coinbiter in Battleon to find the Holiday collection chest for 10,000 AdventureCoins. Immediately unlock 75+ event items and rares, plus the Class and armor set
  3. Battle the Frozensoul Queen (level 50) in /frozensoul
  4. Battle the Challenge Frozensoul Queen (level 100) in /frozensoul (higher drop rate)

Mana Regeneration

Northlands Monks gain mana when they strike an enemy in combat (more effective on crits) or are struck by an enemy in combat. They also regenerate mana with each auto attack.

Abilities:

Present
Max Targets: 1 enemy
Throw a magical present at your enemy and unwrap another for yourself. Applies a small, medium, or large DoT to one enemy and a small, medium, or large HoT to you. Each effect lasts 4 seconds.
Type: Magical
MP: 10
Cooldown 6 seconds

Winter Wind
Max Targets: 1 enemy
Blast your opponent with a gust of cold air, lowering their Haste by 15% and increasing their incoming damage by 15% for 10 seconds.
Type: Magical
Mana Cost: 15
Cooldown: 8 seconds

Northland Lights
Use the starlight from the Northlands to guide the paths of your allies, increasing the Hit Chance, Haste, and outgoing damage for yourself and up to 5 allies by 10% for 10 seconds. Every ally buffed by this skill gives you one stack of Frostval Spirit, which increases your outgoing damage by 5% per stack for 6 seconds.
Note: Additional teammates are required in order to utilize the full power of Frostval Spirit.
Max Targets: 6 players
Type: Magical
Mana Cost: 15
Cooldown: 12 seconds

Holiday Spirit Bomb
Channel the spirit of Frostval into a ball of magical energy and launch it at your opponent, dealing huge damage. Your allies give you strength-- damage increases with stacks of Frostval Spirit.
Max Targets: 1 enemy
Type: Magical
MP: 20
Cooldown: 14 seconds

Passives:
Fortitude: Decreases incoming damage by 10%
Peacebringer: Increases Heal over Time and Damage over Time strength by 10%
Festive Fury: Increases outgoing damage, Critical Strike Chance, and Critical Strike Damage by 8%

Class Design and Use

As a class meant to be easily obtainable by heroes of all levels, Northlands Monk is a moderately powerful class with skills that are easy to understand and optimally use. Present’s Heal over Time gives Northlands Monk longevity while its Damage over Time whittles down enemy health-- this class doesn’t have significant damage mitigation, so Present’s heal will determine which monsters you can solo. Winter Wind deals moderate damage and increases enemy incoming damage, which compounds with the damage increasing effects of Northland Lights.

Northland Lights gives Northlands Monk utility in group settings-- not only does it buff the stats of party members, but it also increases your own maximum damage output by applying one stack of Frostval Spirit for every ally you buff (including yourself). In order to best use Northlands Monk, you should keep stacks of Frostval Spirit up as much as possible-- not only does it increase your outgoing damage by 5% per stack, each stack also directly increases the damage you deal with Holiday Spirit Bomb.

Extras!
Crossover Event Maps
We've gotten several reports about some maps which did not return for the Friday the 13th event, such as /ghostship and /merrowtrench.
There's a very good reason these maps do not return every year.  They are special event crossover maps.  Other maps like this include /necromance, /darkcarnival and /unluck, as well as the current event maps of /santy and /krampus.  
These maps will only return in years where the crossovers happen.  You can check out this list of Friday the 13th dates to see if your favourite crossover will return!

New Doom Set This Friday: Frozen Fury

Available in the Wheel of Doom merge shop!

The Wheel of Doom spins round and round... and this weekend, as we release the final Frostval update of 2019, the team wanted to bring you an ice-cold killer - the Frozen Fury set arrives in the Wheel of Doom merge shop this weekend!

Find all of the set gear in the Wheel of Doom merge shop:

  • Frozen Fury armor
  • 5 helms
  • 2 capes
  • Frozen Force of Fury polearm

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.

Spin the Wheel, Collect your Treasures, and Choose Your Prize 

The Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness is here! Each time you spin the Wheel of Doom, you'll get a Treasure Potion to spend in the Doom Merge Shop. Save up 1,000 and you'll be able to buy a Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness. Each WIoDA will let you choose a rare or valuable item, and a member of the Support Team will add it to your account.

Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness Details

  • The WIoDA will be a Wheel of Doom merge shop exclusive. 
  • Cost: 1,000 Treasure Potions. 
  • The WIoDA token will no longer be left in your inventory.  
  • With each prize awarded, it will be removed so you can obtain a new one.  And another new one. And another new one.
  • The stack limit shows as x1.  
  • At this time, the same rules as PIoDA will remain in place for what types of prizes you can ask for.  

While we do have even more plans for the Wheel of Doom and the IoDA tokens, those are a subject for another day.  (hint*hint*teaser)

* But since they are removed now with the placements of your prizes, you can get as many of them as you have Treasure Potions for.  You just have to redeem them one by one.

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

Don't Be Fooled!

Protect Your Account!

We’re aware of and currently investigating an issue concerning account security.  Many of you may have seen other players advertising websites which are offering you free ACs for logging into the sites, or for various other reasons, like winning PvP matches and then going to Facebook.

These are scams!  Do not be fooled by them!

Any awards AQW does of free ACs will NEVER require you to log into anything except the game itself to claim any AC gifts we are giving out.  These are the links you should be using to log into the game with:

We will NEVER ask you for any information to award you gifts.

We DO NOT use players or staff to advertise any websites to log into in order to claim gifts.

We are aware that some of these scam sites are using templates which look VERY much like our official Manage Account pages. We are trying to get them taken down by the hosting servers.

Our official Manage Account address is https://account.aq.com/. Please do not ever enter your account information anywhere except here, or to log into the game itself.

Please, please, please!  Review our Help Pages and Design Notes for how to keep your account secure:

'Twas the nightmare before Frostval, and all through the town
the moglins were hurrying to bed themselves down.
Then Aurelio Voltaire had a most festive plan ta
bring from OUR world, that jolly elf, SANTA!

This weekend, log in and battle through Part 1 of our Frostval + Friday the 13th double holiday event! Join special guest Aurelio Voltaire, his sweet little companion, Hargoyle, and the moglins of Frostvale as you prepare to celebrate! But be careful, Hero -- the magic of Frostval is very powerful, and if it's tainted by the darkness of Friday the 13th, this might turn out to be a deadly holiday, indeed!

/join santy and talk to Aurelio Voltaire to begin your adventure:

  • Step 1: Gather the ingredients to help Aurelio Voltaire summon Santa Claus from the REAL world into Lore
  • Step 2: Help the moglins of Frostvale prepare for his arrival
  • Step 3: Find Santa Claus the warmest, reddest hat the Northlands has to offer so he feels at home
  • Step 4: CELEBRATE! ... I mean... MINIBOSS FIGHT!

Then return next Friday as we continue our Frostval the 13th adventure!

Nightmare before Frostval the 13th Rewards

Log in and battle the monsters in /santy to find 22 event rare, 0 AC item drops, including:

  • the Northland Slasher armor set + pet
  • The Jailer's Shadow guard house items
  • Snow Crow pet
  • Select accessories from the 13th Claws Suit armor set
  • Adorably terrifying chibi pets

A RARE Crossover event?!

All of the item drops in this weekend's map are exclusive to the 2019 Frostval / Friday the 13th holiday event. Make sure you log in and grab the gear you want before the map leaves in January.

PS: We could not wake up Baby Noda from his pre-Frostval nap, so he'll arrive next week when we begin our 2019 Holi-Daily item drops!

Battle through our returning seasonal events!

Frostval is a time of joy, hope, and... defending Lore from all the insane ice monsters that cannot stop attacking it?!?! Log in this weekend to battle through all our winter holiday events and unlock seasonal rewards!

/join Frostvale to begin battling through all the previous years of Frostval releases, then test your mettle (and metal!) against the biggest gifts of them all: Giefury and his darker, deadlier self, GieFURIOUS! 

 

Giefurious appeared in Frostvale out of nowhere, slashing his ribbons about and muttering the number 13... 13... 13...

This year, in additional to Giefury's seasonal presents, Giefurious has NEW gifts for you:

  • Frostval Nutcracker armor (red variant)**
  • Giefurious armor set + pet

  • Festive Battle Elf armor (member-only)
  • Blue Frosty-val Doge helm

FrostScythe also drops an version of his armor set, crafted by the incomparable Aranx just to help you celebrate Frostval!

* Giefury's name comes from the Old English noun "giefu" for "a giving, gift", which is related to the Old Norse word "giftgipt" meaning "gift; good luck." 

** Created just for you by AQW Community artist, Dominik! 

ALL of the seasonal events from previous years will also return - that means you'll get to battle Kezeroth, Quetzal, and more... PLUS get all the holiday seasonal goodies that come with them!

Journey to Frostvale

Once again the Frost Moglins of Frostvale are opening the snow-covered gates of their town to all of Lore as they prepare for the merriest of all of Lore's holidays... Frostval! If this is your first year with AQW then you get to play through all of the previous adventures:

  • Save Frostvale, 
  • Stop the Ice Symbiote infection 
  • Watch a young Empress Gravelyn experience her first Frostval 
  • Fight to survive as Kezeroth and Karok, ice giant brothers from another world, battle to take OURS
  • Somebody PLEASE think of the children! An icy ancient horror has kidnapped them, and they need your help.
  • and get SO MANY presents with the return of Tinsel's Seasonal Frostval Shop

Join us Next Week for... Frostval the 13th! 

Aurelio Voltaire arrives in Frostvale as we begin our holiday celebration... but it wouldn't be Friday the 13th OR Frostval if something didn't go awry. In the coolest (hah, pun!) possible way so that YOU can save the day.

Plus...

  • Dual wield versions of the Black Friday Hollowborn weapons will become available (Monday)
  • The Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Harvest seasonal event rares leave (Friday)
  • Black Friday / Cyber Monday / WIoDA bonus choice period ends Friday

Underworld Chronomancer Class

The 2020 Calendar is here, and will remain forever epic!

It’s that TIME of year again... a new Calendar Class is here! When you get the 2020 Calendar from HeroMart, you'll unlock in-game rewards inside AQ3D, AdventureQuest, DragonFable, EpicDuel, and the Underworld Chronomancer Class / Armor set in AQWorlds.

The Underworld Chronomancer Class combines the core skills and hourglasses of the Timeless Chronomancer Class with three new, 2020 exclusive consumables:

  • the Timepiece of Inevitability 
  • the Timepiece of Madness 
  • the Timepiece of Pestilence

Currently, the Underworld Chronomancer has the same icons and animations as Corrupted Chronomancer (which were intended to be a part of the Timeless Chronomancer theme. Based on your feedback, we will update the icons and animations to be unique to the Underworld Chrono class.

Timeless Chronomancer Class?!

Last year's Corrupted Chronomancer Class and this year's UnderWorld Chronomancer Class showcase our new style of releasing Calendar/Chronomancer classes. Each of these classes, and future calendar classes, will have:

  • a core base of skills will return each year 
  • a set of gameplay-altering items which will return from year to year
  • a set of unique gameplay-altering items (exclusive to that year's class) that affect your play style according to what you equip
  • All-new art and a new name

We call the core base of skills the Timeless Chronomancer Class. With the addition of the year-exclusive items, we can make an almost-endless array of variants, each with its own feel: the Corrupted Chronomancer, the Underworld Chronomancer, and many more to come!

The Timepieces that come with the 2020 UnderWorld Chronomancer Class can be used in conjunction with the returning Hourglass consumable items to alter the way the class plays.

Calendar Class Gameplay Recap

The new calendar classes are built around 6 unique class-only consumable items. These act as a (pseudo) sixth skill you can use to customize the class to your own style and needs. There are...

3 Hourglasses

These provide a base to your class. They either buff you in specific ways or provide complicated interactions to your skills. (These or other class items like them will return each year.)

3 Timepieces

These alter your skills with different gameplay elements.

Top off your stacks of Hourglasses and Timepieces by grabbing the pet in your Book of Lore 2020 Calendar badge shop. 

Gameplay example:

  1. Prepare before a fight by equipping and using an Hourglass. (Hourglasses last up to 2 hours or until you log out or die.) 
  2. Then, switch to a Timepiece to use during fights. 
  3. The Hourglass aura will remain, meaning you can mix and match any one Hourglass with any one Timepiece.**

Note: You can only have one Hourglass and one Timepiece active at a time. (Changing to a new one will end the affect from the previous Hourglass or Timepiece.)

Underworld Chronomancer Details

Recommended Enhancements: Lucky, Hybrid.

Underworld Chronomancers rely on Hourglasses and Timepieces they create using their Hourglass Pet (equipable items found in the Book of Lore) to manipulate and distort time itself.

Stats: Strength, Dexterity and Intellect.

Mana Regen: Gain mana from all hits landed in combat, and especially on critical hits.  The amount depends on damage relative to *your own* HP total.

Abilities

Timeless Strike

Deals damage based on your weapon damage. Each of your skills gets an additional benefit from Hourglasses and Timepieces you equip in your consumables slot. Hourglasses and Timepieces can be obtained from the Hourglass pet in the Book of Lore.

Type: Physical
Mana Cost: 0
Cooldown: 2 seconds       

Rank 1: Timeless Rift

Deals damage to your target and applies Temporal Rift to you. Temporal Rift stacks 4 times and is used by your other abilities.

Type: Physical/Magical       
Mana Cost: 15       
Cooldown: 4 seconds

Rank 2: Hourglass Reversal

Reverses time to heal you and up to 4 allies. Heal on you is increased by stacks of Temporal Rift and consumes those stacks.       

Type: Physical/Magical       
Mana Cost: 30       
Cooldown: 16 seconds

Rank 3: Distortion Through Time

Applies Corruption Through Time. Corruption Through Time increases all damage you do by 20% for 10 seconds. Doesn’t stack.       

Type: Physical/Magical       
Mana Cost: 20       
Cooldown: 6 seconds

Rank 4 Passive: SandskinDodge chance increased by 10%
Rank 4 Passive: Cosmic Energy Critical strike chance, Hit chance, and Haste increased by 7%

Rank 5: Temporal Collapse

Deals damage to your target based on the damage you've recently dealt while under the effects of Temporal Rift (in the past 10 seconds).  Consumes Temporal Rift stacks.       

Type: Magical       
Mana Cost: 35       
Cooldown: 20 seconds

Rank 10 Passive: Hands of FateStarting from Rank 1, you can equip Hourglasses and Timepieces as a consumable to enhance your other skills.

The Returning Hourglasses

Hourglass of Power
[Timeless Chronomancer Class]
For the next 2hrs your Hourglass Inversion skill now also increases most of your secondary stats a further 10% for 30 seconds. Doesn’t stack. This includes Damage Done, Haste, Critical Chance, Critical Damage, Hit Chance, Dodge Chance and Damage Reduction.

Note: This one is as straightforward as you can get. It’s a broad buff on everything you want. It doesn’t complicate things or add strategy. You just smash it and go. 

Hourglass of Paradise 
[Timeless Chronomancer Class]
For the next 2hrs, your Corruption Through Time skill now also toggles between several new buffs. You get a mana and heal over time, a reduction in damage taken by 40% and increased haste by 30%. Also, your crit chance and damage are reduced by 40%. These auras last 2hrs and toggle on and off each time you use Hourglass Inversion.

Note: Mix this with an offensive Timepiece to mitigate some of the Timepiece’s defensive weakness. Turn Paradise off right before your nuke for great sustain AND damage! 

Hourglass of Transience
[Timeless Chronomancer Class]
For the next 2hrs, Corruption Through Time makes you Transient for 10s. Applies a growing DoT to you. Using it again applies Ephemeral for 5s. Buffs dodge & damage by 50%. Using Hourglass Inversion while Transient gives you Incorporeal for 10s. Increases END & Haste by 50% & removes Transient & Ephemeral. While Transient, Sand Rift applies Flow. Increases enemy damage taken by 8% for 5s, stacks to 3. While Stable, it instead applies Ebb for 8s. Gives a growing DoT

Note: This Hourglass lives up to its namesake- your life is quite temporary and chaotic. But, balance your resources, and you'll find it paying off handsomely.

Get Ephemeral and you'll be dishing out huge damage while being nearly invincible- but your stay will be quite temporary.

Stabilize yourself out and you'll act faster and gain health- but you'll lose your Temporal Rift stacks.

Try to strike a balance alternating between these two skills, and you'll be able to extract the item's full power- but don't get too greedy!

The Underworld Chronomancer Timepieces

Timepiece of Madness 
[Underworld Chronomancer Class]
For the next 30 seconds, Timeless Strike applies Mad, increasing your outgoing damage by 5% for 3 seconds, stacks to 5. Upon reaching 5 stacks of Mad your next Timeless Strike consumes them and you become Eternal, increasing your Critical Strike Chance by 80% and reducing your outgoing damage by 30% for 2 seconds. Your Distortion Through Time Skill also applies Potential, increasing your Hit Chance by 20% for 20 seconds. Cooldown: 12 seconds

Note: A simple Timepiece that rewards you for consecutively hitting your opponent to ramp up your damage. As soon as you have Eternal, your chances of seeing those big orange numbers appear on Temporal Collapse are almost guaranteed. On top of that, Distortion Through Time now grants increased hit chance, allowing this to be more successful.

Timepiece of Inevitability
[Underworld Chronomancer Class]
For the next 10 seconds, Distortion Through Time also applies Inevitable Corruption, increasing your outgoing damage and Haste by 12% for 20 seconds. Using the Timepiece of Inevitability while Inevitable Corruption is active applies Snap to your opponent, dealing significant damage to them after a short delay. Cooldown: 20 seconds

Note: Another straightforward option, this Timepiece focuses on seamlessly adding extra damage so long as you can keep it refreshed often. In between your decimation-inducing finger-snaps, you get to enjoy a notable buff to both your outgoing damage and your haste, boosting the rest of your skills. This all culminates in an inevitable nuke from Temporal Collapse.

Timepiece of Pestilence 
[Underworld Chronomancer Class]
For the next 10 seconds, Distortion Through Time also applies Infectious Air, increasing the amount of damage the enemy takes by 20% for 10 seconds, stacking to 3 but is consumed by Temporal Collapse. As you recover from the contaminating air, your incoming damage is increased by 100% for 10 seconds. Also applies a light DoT and Decay to your target for 10 seconds, preventing them from healing. Cooldown: 10 seconds

Note: Lastly a Timepiece that makes you and others gain damage exponentially through lowering your enemy’s defenses until you tear them down with your utter prowess. This Timepiece requires a bit of timing alone however benefits greatly when given haste buffs allowing you to stack your Infectious Air aura with ease. Make your enemy rot and make the world of Lore witness the true power of The Undead Legion!

Available every year from December 1st - 31st

Winter is coming (for many of you, it's already here!), and so are all our snow-covered, ice-laden, gift-bearing holiday events! To help ALL our heroes celebrate, this month's seasonal set features the Northern Wanderers - the Northern Wanderer and Fallen Wanderer armors.

December Set: The Northern Wanderer

Starting this Saturday at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock the Northern Wanderer and Fallen Wanderer armors and all their accessories!

There are two ways to get the gear:

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 Northern Wanderers pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 2,000 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Northern Wanderer Armor
  • Fallen Wanderer 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 December, 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 from December 7th - January 4th, and are the golden and platinum color-custom Northern Royalty 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.
