If you've been with us for a while, you might remember Aranx, AdventureQuest Worlds Artist and Celestial Guardian.

Arriving in the Featured Gear Shop next month:

  • Evolved LightCaster

Final Weekend: Unlock the Urban Assassins

These items will not return until August 1st, 2021

Your toughest opponents don't always wait until you step onto the battlefield, so when they bring the fight right to your front door, you need to be ready to step out into the street and take them down! The Urban Assassin Gear is our August Seasonal Pack. Unlock the full set and character page badge when you buy the full pack, or talk to Garek in Battleon to get individual set pieces.

August Set: Urban Assassin, Yin-Yang + Yokai Street Gear

Unlock the Urban Assassin armor set and the color customizable Yin-Yang and Yokai Street Wear sets until 11:59 PM EST on August 31st, 2020.

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 5,050 ACs, so getting all the gear from the pack is a pretty sweet deal. 

The set includes:

  • Urban Assassin armor
  • Yin Yang Street Gear (color customizable)
  • Yokai Street Gear (color customizable)
  • 14 helms
  • 3 capes
  • 5 weapons

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as an upgrade bonus? 

Upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages; new bonus gear comes out roughly every month. 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 August, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in 2021, or 2022, or 2023, etc.

If this isn't a new upgrade bonus, what IS the next bonus?

You can see all the available upgrade bonuses on our upgrade site. The next bonus set will be available soon, so keep an eye on the Design Notes! 

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 August 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.

Return to the Nightmare Realm

Explore the Library of Dreams this Weekend!

Log in this weekend and journey to the city of Somnia, deep inside the Land of Dreams and Nightmares. While Dreamweavers study in the fabled Library of Dreams, the warriors of the Mindbreaker Guard faction defend their home with deadly psionic powers. Meet the residents, complete quests to gain reputation and unlock more gear, and discover lore only available in the library’s scrolls.

This weekend, /join somnia to begin your adventure. Meet...

Gevan the MindBreaker Learn about the city + access the MindBreaker WyvernRider Shop. 
BONUS: If you have the MindBreaker Class, complete his quest to unlock the exclusive MindBreaker Psion set.

Jana the DreamMaster The city's librarian. She'll defend its scrolls with her life but would rather YOU risk yours. She's got tomes to shelve. Complete her quests for scrolls, then return to the library to read them. Plus, check out the Somnian House Item Shop.

Dezi the DreamWeaver She is not really here. You're witnessing her powers of projection. As a DreamWeaver, she can make you see many -- any -- things. (And if you played through the SkyGuard Saga, she'll have some extra dialogue for you.)

Tagran the Somnic Armorer The armors he sells will protect you while you adventure through the Land of Dreams and Nightmares. You'll need to rank up your Somnia rep in order to use all of it, though.

Myza the Dream Creature Specialist A Dravix from Etherstorm, he was captivated by all of the interesting beasts people dream about. He'll sell you some of the tamer pets... if you dare.

Vanda the Psionic Weaponsmith If it's high-quality, handcrafted psionic weapons you want, she's got stock for  all skill levels. Just... don't stare too closely at HER hand.

Fiere the Dreamy HairStylist You want that special someone dreaming about YOU each night? Then he's the stylist you need, and his shop is the place to go.

Memet the Nightmare Moglin Is she really a nightmare? Or more of a fever dream? Sometimes not even she can tell. You can access all of Memet's permanent, past adventures when you talk to her.

MindBreaker Class Update

When you purchase a 12,000 AdventureCoin pack, you automatically unlock the MindBreaker Class, armor set, and character page badge. Originally, the class + gear required membership to use, as a bonus for those who bought AdventureCoins and kept an active membership.

After listening to the feedback of many of our players over the last few years, this week we've removed the member flag from the class and armor set. Once you unlock it, you'll be able to use it forever, as long as your account is active. 

Next up... reworking the MindBreaker Class's skills. The Class team and I are eager to hear your thoughts about what you like, don't like, and would like to see improved. 

And don't miss the rest of this month's update. See the full release lineup here: AdventureQuest Worlds calendar.

All New Daily Gifts Coming Up

Log in each day for a new server-wide reward item, boost, or drop rate increase.

Coming next week:

Happening Now: WAR Against the TechnoLich

Doomwood III: Legacy of Darkness

This weekend.... WAR against the Darkness as Technolich Vortrix sends his army against us. Join your fellow heroes in battle and take out waves of the Deadtech army in our Legacy of Darkness Saga finale!

Also, an insider secret with this release... today, the release of the AQWorlds DoomWood III finale, is also Artix's real-life oldest son’s birthday. Aidan is now level 6. He hopes you are having fun and looks forward to having his little brother Kyger as both a game, and real-life battle pet.

War Rewards

We've got an Army (of Darkness!) worth of war rewards coming your way this weekend! Take down war waves to earn Deadtech Medals and unlock wicked new 0 AC rewards. And if you are a member and kept your Kyger pet from the last Legacy of Darkness update, you can quest to level him up into a trained, Obsidian Light of Destiny-wielding battlepet!

Featured Rare Set: Cyber Paladin

Defy the darkness with the blindingly bright (and perma-rare) Cyber Paladin set. Available in your Featured Gear Shop until August 31st!

Daily Gift Drops Incoming!

I was out much of this week due to a family emergency... and that meant Wednesday and Thursday's daily gifts did not arrive. BUT tonight we're adding those in, along with the scheduled gift for tonight. You'll be able to complete the full FireMaster set in one go... but make sure you have the DoomMaster armor set from the Doom Legacy merge shop. You'll need it!

And if you were one of the many heroes waiting anxiously to own a pair of Stellaria's cat ears, you're in luck! Return this Sunday and fight to earn your own pair of 0 AC Rainbow Paladin Cat Ears. Shine on!

Coming next week:

  • Monday: 48 Hour Class Points Boost
  • Tuesday: New 0 AC item
  • Wednesday: 48 Hour Rep Boost 
  • Thursday: New 0 AC item 
  • Friday: 72 Hour Gold Boost
  • Saturday: Farming Resource Buff
  • Sunday: New 0 AC item 

Get 25% more ACs with any Membership or AC Pack

Summer might be almost over, but not our AdventureCoin bonus! We're rolling out Summer AC sale right into our Back to School bonus. So if you're looking forward to next month's Talk Like a Pirate Day gear, the start of our six-part Shadows of Chaos chapter, or our Brasilian Independence Day /party, this is the time to top up!

New Character Page Badges are live!

The Necrotic Sword of Doom and Void Highlord character pages achievement badges have been awarded in recognition of the time spent by those who fought and completed quests to unlock them.

  • If you farmed the Necrotic Sword of Doom, talk to Braeus in Shadowfall to accept the quest to unlock your badge. 
  • If you farmed the Void HighLord Class, talk to Tharanak Hrii in /shadowblast. Complete his quest and your badge will appear!

Note on item variants: The IoDa-obtained item(s) and the farmed versions have the same art and boosts, but are different items. Due to this, the IoDA versions are not eligible to unlock the character page badge (or the dual-wield version of the NSoD in /nostalgiaquest).

The good news is this means you can have both versions though! If you previously obtained your item by IoDA, you can still get the farmed version to get the badges with.

*We're very sorry, but since the Undo is still a manual process, Zohrah will not be able to Undo any of these IoDA choices except as stated on the Prize Redemption Page.

More achievement badges will be added in the future. Which would you like to see?

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.

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

Bug Fixes:

  • Skip button added to Tachyon MiniGame to help prevent throwing of computers due to lag.
  • DoomKnight Fortress House not loading fixed.
  • Lady Celestia given the proper directions to Alteon now.
  • Blood Moggot readed to /darkoviaforest.

  • Golden Freedom Cannon and Chaotic Freedom Cannon no longer turn into each other.

Extras:

Hello again Buggy Fans!  Been a while since one of these was posted.  This one is more just a reminder!

There seems to have been a wee bit of confusion about what happens when the Game Rules and Terms & Conditions are not adhered to as it pertains to glitch abuse.  Let's see if we can clear it up a little.

Everyone at AQW is human, and we all make mistakes.  Sometimes these mistakes are small and we can just correct it and move one.  Sometimes these mistakes are not so small, and more correction needs to be done, and then we can move on.

When the mistakes are a little larger, and particularly when there has been significant abuse of them before we can get it corrected, we can and sometimes have to remove items or ACs from accounts.  If we have to do this, no other actions are taken against the account, as it began from an "our bad".  However, you can prevent this from happening to you by SENDING A BUG REPORT if you see a glitch, rather than testing it a few dozens times yourself!

The BugHunters are recruiting

Introducing... the BugHunter ArchKnights!

Artix Entertainment is looking for a few epic heroes to help our Bugs team… as ArchKnights!* We are looking for experienced players of AdventureQuest Worlds who are interested in working more closely with our QA team to report issues inside the game.

Here are a few things you should know before you apply:

  • You must be at least 18 years old to apply and participate, no exceptions.**
  • You must provide a valid email address when signing up so we can contact you.

If you like smashing bugs, love AdvetureQuest Worlds, and think you'd make a good BugHunter ArchKnight... read on!***

How to Apply

Fill out the application here: BugHunter AK application

All applications will be read and considered. If you are selected for consideration, we will email you.

BugHunters vs ArchKnights?

Bug reports are a part of building videogames, and we get them throughout the week!  But with a crew of dedicated and knowledgeable Bug Hunters... and now our BugHunter ArchKnights, lead by Cemaros, we can smash’em all.

AdventureQuest Worlds BugHunters are what we call our QA testers. They are amazing... and more, they all started as members of our player community! They joined our corps of contributors as official team testers with the goal of making the game and community better for everyone.

BugHunter ArchKnights are players who'll work closely with our BugHunters to test bugs on our live game servers. The BugHunter AK group will help us get to know you and see your 'hunting skills in action. Talented BugHunter AKs may be invited to become members of the official BugHunter team. 

Important qualities for Bug Hunters and AKs:

  • Able to think outside the box
  • Able to follow written directions precisely
  • Able to work independently or as part of a team
  • Good communication skills
  • Experienced and knowledgeable
  • Be at least partly insane already.  If you've seen Cemaros's twitter, you already know about this part.

*If you have been a member of our video game community for a while, you might remember the original Forum ArchKnights. These were incredibly helpful forum members who helped our Forum Team Moderators with certain moderation tasks. And like Moderator Pokemon, many eventually evolved into full Moderators and joined the AE community contributor team. 

** If you are not 18 years old yet, we regret that you cannot apply to become an ArchKnight. If you are not yet 18 but have the ability to control time… please use your superpowers for good to save the world, and THEN return to this application after aging yourself several years.

*** BugHunter Knights are not employees, contractors, or official team members of Artix Entertainment but may receive membership, secondary currency, or other in-game perks as a “thank you” for participating.

Unlock the Urban Street Gear

Available every year from August 1st - 31st

Your toughest opponents don't always wait until you step onto the battlefield, so when they bring the fight right to your front door, you need to be ready to step out into the street and take them down! The Urban Assassin Gear is our August Seasonal Pack. Unlock the full set and character page badge when you buy the full pack, or talk to Garek in Battleon to get individual set pieces.

August Set: Urban Assassin, Yin-Yang + Yokai Street Gear

Starting Thursday, July 1st at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock the Urban Assassin armor set and the color customizable Yin-Yang and Yokai Street Wear sets.

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 5,050 ACs, so getting all the gear from the pack is a pretty sweet deal. 

The set includes:

  • Urban Assassin armor
  • Yin Yang Street Gear (color customizable)
  • Yokai Street Gear (color customizable)
  • 14 helms
  • 3 capes
  • 5 weapons
  • an exclusive character page badge

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as an upgrade bonus? 

Upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages; new bonus gear comes out roughly every month. 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 August, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in 2020, or 2021, or 2022, etc.

If this isn't a new upgrade bonus, what IS the next bonus?

You can see all the available upgrade bonuses on our upgrade site. The next bonus set will be available soon, so keep an eye on the Design Notes! 

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 August 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.
