Beast of the Legion Finale

Dage's Dark Birthday 2021 continues this weekend!

This weekend, WAR is upon us! Dage has added the might of his Undead Legion to aid the Seven Circles' guards. As heroes of Lore, we MUST NOT allow the Beast to be freed, no matter what it takes. Fight through waves of enemies in the /sevencircleswar map. Show them no mercy, for they are not our allies anymore.

The story so far...

Long ago, the Beast, an undead creature of mass destruction, ravaged Lore until the Archfiend Nulgath sealed it away. Now those seals are breaking and the Beast seeks to wreak havoc on Lore once again. Last weekend, the heroes of Lore ventured into the Seven Circles of the Underworld to seek out Virgil, the Guide of the Underworld's most dangerous prison and prevent the Beast from escaping and becoming whole with it's other half, Dage the Evil.

New Dark Rewards

All month long, we'll be releasing new Legion and Underworld-themed reward farming sets for you to collect. This weekend's rewards: Legion Viking set from the war merge shop and the Legion Forge Spawn! Talk to Vulcar the Underworld Forge Master in the /underworld map to begin his quest.

This weekend, all heroes can /join legionarena and battle the monsters there to collect the pieces of the Underworld Scourge armor set.

If you're not a member of the Undead Legion, never fear! You, too, can sell your soul to Dage the Evil and become a part of his immortal army.

Who is Dage the Evil?

If you're just joining us, you might not know who Dage the Evil is. In-game, Dage the Evil is the leader of the Undead Legion, ruler of the Underworld, and the Dark Weaponsmith. Many years ago, in the real world, the artist behind the NPC started releasing more and more rewards for his birthday until it became an annual, fan-favorite holiday. But the zones for his one, true love... PVP... are availalbe all year long!

Lucky Day Returns

The Shamrock Fair is BACK!

Do ya feel lucky, Hero? I hope so, because this weekend, The Shamrock Fair returns as we celebrate Lucky Day! Log in all weekend log for one of the most colorful holiday events of the year.

Lucky Day Fair events:

  • Double gold and rep server boost 
  • Play minigames to collect Golden Tickets
  • Unlock the Evolved Leprechaun Class
  • Seasonal items and bosses return

You can access the Fair RIGHT NOW when you /join Luck, and then continue to taste the painbow inthe /rainbow and /hedge maps!

Don't miss the many minigames you'll find at the Shamrock Fair:

Save up the Golden Tickets you earn from the minigames to purchase gear from the Lucky Day Shamrock Fair Merge Shop, and if you get a Lucky Hat or Lucky Top Hat from the Fair Token Shop, you'll earn double the number of Golden Tickets from any minigame you play!

Return to the Fairy Grove

The veil between our world and the Fae has thinned enough for you to return to the realm of the Fairy Queen. 

This weekend's Lucky Day expansion is based on the Celtic lore of the Pooka. Battle this Trickster for a chance to unlock gorgeous new fae-themed gear!

The Luckiest Class: Evolved Leprechaun!

Most people find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but we found the Evolved Leprechaun Class, and we can't think of a better Hero to /equip it than YOU.

You can get the Evolved Leprechaun Class in 2 ways:

  • Buy the Evolved Leprechaun Class with 2,000 AdventureCoins
  • Turn in 12 Lucky Clovers, 20 Rainbow Shards, and 2,000 Golden Tickets to the Lucky Day Shamrock Fair Merge Shop, run by Mog O’Rahilly

Make your friends GREEN with envy as you battle through this Luckiest of weekends filled with LUK, leprechauns, and LOTS of loot!

Enhanced Awe Enhancements

Starting this weekend,  Awe enhancements receive an update, and drastically increase in power! These changes are designed to make every Awe enhancement a solid choice to use in specific situations, and will give a boost to many classes that might not have felt as strong to you. Many of the Awe enhancements have always been weaker than others. 

Our goal with these changes was to make them more rewarding, fun, and to give you a new element of gameplay, while not completely changing the enhancements you're familiar with.

Not sure what the Awe Enhancements are? Read on!

Awe Enhancements are weapon enhancements you can unlock after completing the Blade of Awe questline. (Talk to Valencia in the /museum map if you haven't started the quests yet.

When you apply an Awe Enhancement to your weapon, your auto attacks have a chance to activate an additional skill! These newly buffed awe enhancements are:

Spiral Carve
15% chance to deal 200% Hybrid Damage as Physical damage type
Apply Spiral Carve to yourself for 10 seconds, increasing your crit chance by 25%.

Awe Blast
30% chance to deal 100% Hybrid Damage as Physical damage type
Apply Awe Blast to your opponent for 10 seconds, decreasing their damage resistance and crit chance by 15%.

Health Vamp
50% chance to deal 80% Hybrid Damage as True damage type
Heal yourself for 125% of the noncrit damage dealt.

Mana Vamp
80% chance to deal 50% Hybrid Damage as True damage type
Recover 10 mana.

Powerword Die
0.3% chance to deal 999,999 True damage

 

Enhancement updates

Damage updates
A few of the awe enhancements will now use True Damage- a special type that ignores all resistance and damage boosting secondary stats (but can still crit). 

We opted to give a few of the Awe enhancements this damage type to increase their viability in PvP, and prevent them from being too scalable in PvE.

Animation updates

We chose to remove the pose animations on most of the awe enhancements. This was done because they interrupt auto-attack animations, and are very frequent now.

These Awe Enhancement changes also tie into the next change... 

Introducing: the Mithril PVP Amulet!

This weekend, the Mithril PVP Amulet arrives, offering a whopping +15,000 HP in PvP Battlegrounds! That means more classes will have an opportunity to use their skills when fighting against opponents with high burst damage. 

How to obtain: Merge the Diamond and Platinum PvP Amulets (from /thevoid) in either the /doomarena 1v1 or Combat Trophy merge shops to obtain it. 

Why are we releasing a new PVP Amulet now?

Dage is a HUGE PVP fan, and we wanted to time the amulet's release with his birthday event, as a gift from him and the balance team. Stronger PVP Amulets have been planned for quite a while, but haven't been introduced until now because it would have made a few classes too powerful. 

But with the class buffs released over the last few years and the buffed Awe enhancements, the PVP experience will feel a lot better, especially if you haven't entered the arena in a while. 

Our balance team knows this will cause some substantial shifts in PVP. That means some of the matchups you're used to may not go quite as you expect anymore. We'll be keeping an eye on your feedback and will revisit PVP balance in a few months to make adjustments as needed if any less fun or unfairly dominant scenarios arise.

Applications CLOSED: Game Moderators

Want To Help Make AQW a Safe & Friendly Game?

Our in-game moderators, bug hunters, and testers are amazing... and more, they all started as members of our player community! They joined our corps of contributors* to make the game and community better for everyone. Starting today, we're looking for some fresh new faces to join the game moderator team.


Game moderators are the heroes you see with the gold name. They read and take action on in-game reports. They help keep the game safe for everyone.

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.

Important qualities for moderators:

  • Be fair, honest, and willing to ask for guidance and input
  • Be eager to serve and improve the community

If you like helping people, love AdventureQuest Worlds, and think you'd make a good in-game moderator... we want to hear from you! We are also looking for new mods that speak languages besides English, especially Tagalog, Portuguese, Spanish. Not bilingual?  Don't worry! You can still apply! 

How to Apply

Fill out the application here: Game Moderator application closed

Status: In Review

Applications are currently being reviewed. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of heroes who applied to join our contributor team, we cannot respond to everyone about their application. 

Dage, J6, Ghost, Tomix, Lae, and I (plus many more of your favorite staff) all joined the AE team after finding the games and playing as regular members of the community... and you can, too!

Unlock the Legion WarSeeker Set

Available every year from March 1st - 31st

March is the month of EVIL! Warriors around Lore channel their inner darkness, rage, and embrace the war-like spirit that lives within. This month's seasonal set honors that drive, featuring a new set straight out of the Underworld: the Legion Warseeker.

March Set: Legion Warseeker

Starting Sunday, March 1st at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock the Legion Warseeker 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 4,400 ACs, so getting all the gear from the pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 2,400 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Legion WarSeeker armor
  • Warseeker's Skull pet (with quests for house items)
  • Warseeker's Skulls cape
  • Warseeker's Burning Skull helm
  • Warseeker's Horned Mask
  • Warseeker's Mask
  • Warseeker's Horned Visor
  • Warseeker's Visor
  • Warseeker's Blade
  • Dual Warseeker's Blades
  • Warseeker's Axe
  • Dual Warseeker's Axes
  • Warseeker's Scythe
  • Warseeker's Cape
  • Warseeker's Backblades
  • Warseeker's Bladed Cape
  • an exclusive character page badge

Seasonal Set Details

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as ann 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 March, 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 January 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.
