  • Dreads de Lutador morph helm
  • Tranças de Lutadora morph helm

Everyone loves to get prizes... and that's why everyone in AdventureQuest Worlds will get at least one free spin on the Wheel of Doom per week.

  • Members get one free spin a day while their upgrade is active
  • All players get one free spin a week. 

Spin the Wheel, Collect Treasures, Choose Your Prize 

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 lets you choose a rare or valuable item* straight from your account manager.

How to Claim your Prize

Make sure you have a confirmed email address attached to your game account, and then follow these steps:

  1. Decide on the item you want
  2. Log into your Account Manager
  3. Click on the "Awesome Prizes" link on the sidebar
  4. You'll see a list of the IoDA tokens you have available
  5. Choose from a list of ALL the eligible item rewards  
  6. You'll be taken to a verification page to confirm your choice

Redeem IoDA tokens to get even MORE bonuses

For each of the first six eligible IoDA tokens you receive , you'll get a FREE Bonus IoDA. The eligible tokens are the Ultimate, Epic, Platinum, Wicked  and Golden tokens. After that, you'll get a free Bonus IoDA for every 3 eligible IoDA you redeem, with no maximum stack. So if you have that dream set of gear you want to create... now you'll be able to.

After you redeem your...

  • 1st IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 2nd IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 3rd IoDA, you'll unlock 1free bonus IoDA
  • 4th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 5th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 6th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA

Then, for every 3 IoDA you redeem, you'll unlock another free bonus IoDA.

After you redeem your...

  • 7th, 8th, and 9th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 10th, 11th, and 12th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA

And so on. The 3:1 bonus IoDA ratio starts after you get your first 6 free BIoDA, regardless of when you received them. (Example: if you've redeemed a total of 21 IoDA tokens, you'll unlock 11 BIoDA total. The first 6 BIoDA at a 1:1 ratio, and then 5 more at the 3:1 ratio.)

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

Final Weekend: Obsidian Samurai Set

Available every year from February 1st - 28th

Sunday is the last full day to get this month's seasonal set, featuring a deadly warrior straight out of Empress Miko's royal Yokai Court: the Obsidian Samurai.

February Set: Obsidian Samurai

Unlock the Obsidian Samurai armor and all its 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.

The total cost to buy all of the gear individually is 5,400 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Obsidian Samurai pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 3,400 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Obsidian Samurai armor
  • Samurai's Shadow Cape (glow is color-customizable)
  • Obsidian Samurai Banners cape
  • Obsidian Samurai's Helm and Masked Helm
  • 4 Obsidian Samurai hair helms
  • 5 weapons (including dual-wield katanas, nodachi, and naginata)

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as the monthly 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 February, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in upcoming years.

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 February 29th.

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

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.

The rare Chunin and Dragon Shinobi CLASS SKILLS have returned paired with new art so that ALL players can enjoy the gameplay. Previously debuting as AQW 2012 and 2013 Birthday rares, Chunin and Dragon Shinobi skill sets return to Akiba!

Previously revamped, the newest versions of these two classes are now permanently reintroduced to the game.

The Imperial Chunin class and set requires Rank 10 Yokai, and can be purchased from Announcer Guy in /dragonkoiz. A new Classic Chunin armor is available for anyone with the original 2012 Chunin class. If you have the original class, talk to Sadanobu in /akiba to unlock the new variant.

The DragonSoul Shinobi class and set can be earned from Miko in /shadowfortress using Orochi's Scales after defeating Jaaku in the Shogun of Shadows saga. 

Yokai + Blade of Awe Quest Updates

Last year, we made adjustments to the Gold, XP, and Rep rewards for The Sandsea and Span Chaos Sagas with the intent to hasten leveling and class progression, and now we’re doing the same for the Yokai Sagas!

If you’ve already finished these sagas, you won’t be able to repeat the story quests, but you can still earn a now increased amount of reputation from the repeatable farming quests, so if you haven’t already achieved Rank 10 Yokai, there’s no better time than now!

PLUS, the quests for the Blade of Awe components have been improved, increasing their Gold and XP rewards, as well as some of the drop rates.

Bev's Wig Shop Update

This weekend, talk to Bev the Battle Beautician in Battleontown for 12 new hairstyles + 4 new wigs. She'll make sure you look fantastic while you make every fight look easy!

Groundhorc's Day Returns

How long will winter last?

Happy Groundhog Day! On this day every year, Philip the weather predicting groundhog pops his head out of his hole and peers around. If he comes out to play, then spring is here. But if he sees his shadow and vanishes back into his warm cozy burrow, then we know that we are in for SIX MORE WEEKS of winter!

When you log in today, you'll see Philip the Weather-predicting groundhog. If you aren't familiar with strange US folk traditions, here's the story of Puxatawnee Phil, who inspired this NPC.

Talk to Phil in Battleon and complete his quest to save his brother (also named Phil... it's a family thing) from General Porkon in the Horc Fort.

Then wear his head on your face to celebrate.  (If you can save Phillip from that most fiendish boss, you just might be the lucky new owner of the Groundhog Hat, Groundhog Hood, or even Phillip, the weather predicting groundhog pet!)

Unlock the Obsidian Samurai Set

Available every year from February 1st - 28th

February is a month of celebration... from ringing in the Yokai New Year to the SuperBowl /party all the way to Hero's Heart Day! To help ALL our heroes get in the spirit, this month's seasonal set features a new set straight out of Empress Miko's royal Yokai Court: the Obsidian Samurai.

February Set: Obsidian Samurai

Starting Saturday, February 1st at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock the Obsidian Samurai armor and all its 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.

The total cost to buy all of the gear individually is 5,400 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Obsidian Samurai pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 3,400 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Obsidian Samurai armor
  • Samurai's Shadow Cape (glow is color-customizable)
  • Obsidian Samurai Banners cape
  • Obsidian Samurai's Helm and Masked Helm
  • 4 Obsidian Samurai hair helms
  • 5 weapons (including dual-wield katanas, nodachi, and naginata)
  • an exclusive 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
May: Lord of the J-Sixth + Lightning Lich Lord
June: ShadowZard Mount + Rider
July: Flameborn + Underworld Summoner
August: Urban Assassins
September: Celestial Naval Commander
October: ChronoStriker
November: Harvest Hunters
December: Northern Wanderer

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as the monthly 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 February, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in upcoming years.

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 February 29th.

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

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.
