This Weekend: Booty-ful Treasure

Wheel of Doom merge shop + Treasure Chest Update

YARRRR! We are closing out our month of pirates, plunder, and puns with even MORE treasure! We've added the Ancient Wanderer gear to the Wheel of Doom Merge Shop and the Chaorrupted Pirate set now drops from Twilly's Treasure Chest quest along with over 215 other items. Read on for more information on how to obtain them all!

Find the following set items in the Wheel of Doom merge shop:

  • Ancient Wanderer armor
  • 8 Ancient Wanderer helms
  • 2 Ancient Wanderer capes
  • 6 Ancient Wanderer weapons

Open a Treasure Chest for a chance to get 1 of...

  • 50 armors
  • 55+ weapons
  • 70+ helms
  • 10+ capes
  • or 3 house items (including the Altar of Caladbolg)
  • Plus the new Chaorrupted Pirate set

Get your Free Wheel of Doom Spins

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

Treasure Chests Details

There is a small chance to get a mysterious Treasure Chest as a reward drop when you battle ANY monster in-game. Have you found one yet?

Treasure chests are a fun - but completely optional - way to get exclusive items in AdventureQuest Worlds. The chests have a less than 1% chance of dropping from ANY monster in the entire game. Each one contains one of over 215 epic items that you can't get anywhere else (and the number will keep growing)!

  • All of the items are 0 AC so you can store them for free 
  • All of the items are non-member so you can use them forever

There's just one problem. You can't open the Treasure Chests without a Magic Key. The good news is that Twilly (the little red Moglin in Battleon) has a few extras and will happily sell you one for 200 ACs and open your chest for you.

Monthly Membership Perk Arrives Friday, October 1st

Members, log in and talk to Twilly this Sunday to claim your two FREE treasure chest keys! Collect treasure chests as you battle through Lore, then use the keys to open them for new free items. 

Want to get in on this?

Upgrade your AdventureQuest Worlds character with any membership package to unlock two free Treasure Chest Keys for each month the membership is active.

* We will begin updating the treasure chest rewards again on a regular basis, so if you've already collected all the gear... get ready to unlock more in the near future!

Server Performance and Bug Fixes

What is the "ServerTest" server?

This is an updated version of the regular Live AQW servers, with some performance and bug fixes.  This is NOT the "new" AQW mobile server.

Before rolling out changes to the live servers on Friday, we need to make sure there are no mysterious bugs or side effects to the code changes.

 

Want to help test?  Here is how: 

Log into the "ServerTest" server and just play the game like normal. 

If you have any strange problems or bugs, keep a note of them.   Then logout, and log into one of the regular Live servers, and try the exact same actions again. 

If the problem bug is ONLY on the ServerTest server, please Report the bug at the Bugs site.

Remember: This is testing SERVER issues only.  Do not report client bugs like menu and animation issues.

 

Brief List of Changes

September 2, 2021

- Fixed using your last Magic Treasure Chest key not freeing up inventory slot.
- Fixed Bag and House slots not freeing up, when selling AC items, and using Merge shop.

 

 

Older Changes

(August 24, 2021)

  • Preventing skill spam cheating in PVP
  • Faster monster respawn when server is not busy.
  • Less chance of getting disconnected when game client spams the server.


(July 15, 2021)

  • Collecting Item Drops too fast will not disconnect you.
  • When session is kicked from multi-login, the client will show a more helpful message.
  • When trying to join a map that has a broken room instance, there is a better chance now of getting assigned to a working instance of the map, instead of nothing happening.
  • Using class skills immediately after Class Rank up will no longer kick you.
  • Killing your own character in PVP will not award a score for either team.

 

(May 6-10, 2021)

  • Selling items when you are at the max gold cap, will refund zero gold, but the item will be removed from your inventory. Fixes house item selling bug.
  • Fixed lots of random bugs, where player data is "missing" and the server tries to make changes anyway.
  • In PVP zones, it is no longer allowed to Get items from your Bank.  You can store items, but can not swap or pull items from Bank. 
  • Added cool downs to guild,friend, and duel invites.  Less spam!


(April 26, 2021)

  • Better warning messages when guild, party, and friend actions fail.
  • Buying items that are higher than your character level are blocked.
  • Item drops from monsters will now have enhancement level equal to your char level, unless the item is a higher than your char level. It will not be enhanced.
  • If you try to go to a player house that does not exist, and you already own a home, you will get an warning message, instead of going to the buyhouse map.
  • Removed an old process that would often lag the entire system every 15 minutes.
  • If you log into another game server, this server will show a warning message, instead of Kick for some actions, like quest turn-in, equipping gear.  More improvements in this area will be coming soon.
  • Faster server reboot time.
  • Many other behind-the-scenes performance and bug fixes.

Become a Celestial Naval Commander

Available every year from September 1st - 30th

Yarrrr! This year, the winds of September bring pirates, ghosts, and enough loot and booty to fill your backpack to overflowing! Our September Seasonal Set, the Celestial Naval Commander, is now available. 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.

September Set: Celestial Naval Commander

Remember to keep your wings tightly furled when on deck to avoid getting tangled in the lines. But if the ship starts to sink, you'll be GLAD to have them as you fly to safety!

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 4,000 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Celestial Naval Commander pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 2,000 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Celestial Naval Commander armor 
  • 2 helms 
  • 2 capes: 1 set of wings, 1 parrot cape
  • 5 cutlasses 
  • 1 Parrot Pet

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

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? 

No, this is a different set. Just like the Flame Dragon Warrior, you can buy the entire set for one price on our site. You can ALSO buy the individual pieces in-game.

This set will return EVERY September, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in upcoming years.

Think of this like a carousel of gear. Every January, we'll have the January set. Every February, we'll feature the February set. The monthly upgrade bonuses will be separate and distinct bonuses.

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 each month's sets.

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

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.
