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

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

Skullbound Warrior + Underworld Warden Updates

Last week, we said the artist crafting the Skullbound Warrior had been caught up with some big real-life shifting. Good news! They've arrived and sent the files in yesterday. The items will release next Friday in the Collection Chest + birthday rares shop.

The Underworld Warden capes + house items are still on their way, but we wanted to get this week's Darkon story release + gear out to you as early as possible. Enjoy, and keep an eye on the Design Notes for the Warden gear's arrival this weekend.

Master of the UnderWorld story so far...

It has been 10 years since AQW heroes first battled through the Dage vs Nulgath war. The Master of the Underworld story tells a tale in 3 parts:

Part 1 in /FiendPast
The first chapter -- released in January to celebrate Nulgath's birthday -- was set in the distant past, as Nulgath reigned unchallenged. Your hero battles as Nulgath's Commandant. Your task? To observe Dage the Lich, a promising new addition to your Master's Nation... and assess his loyalty. (*insert ominous foreshadowing music here*)


Part 2 in /DageRecruit
The second chapter released last week as we celebrated Dage's birthday, and was also set in the past. Your hero plays AS Dage the Evil. Your goal? To recruit powerful allies, take out potential enemies, and gear up for war against your former master, Nulgath.

Part 3 in /DarkWar

The drumbeats of war sound once again! This weekend, we jump to the present day in the final chapter of the Master of the Underworld story. It's been ten years since the last all-out battle, and there is NO END in sight to the eternal conflict between these two sides. Play as your hero as you choose a side and fight to prove your allegiance and collect the dark, deadly rewards. 

WHO am I fighting for? And why?

If you have been unfortunate to wander Nulgath's malevolent realm and quested for his powerful rewards, then you know exactly what he is. If you have journeyed to Shadowfall and navigated the halls of Gravelyn's fortress to join the Undead Legion, you've met Dage the Evil.

But that does not tell you who they ARE. Read on to learn more about the diabolical leaders you've bound yourselves to... and if you haven't yet, then now is the perfect time to decide which has your loyalty!

Dage the Evil
Dark Lord of the Undead Legion

Once a power-mad necromancer, Dage signed Nulgath's contracts and rode the fast lane to even more strength. Eventually the time came for Dage, like so many others before him, to fulfill his contract and pay Nulgath for his power, but he had used his new knowledge to bind a portion of his soul to an armor of his own construction.

This remnant lives on and retains all the knowledge and strength of his previous life. Now Dage the Evil rivals Nulgath himself in evil power.

Nulgath
Abyss General
Through the ages, Nulgath has taken many forms and been known by many names. Recently however, it was revealed that each of his previous forms were merely larval stages of the diabolic evolution into his current, malevolent form.

Now Nulgath serves no master, only his own ceaseless lust for power and hunger for the souls he captures through his contracts. Since Dage the Evil's rise to power, it remains to be seen which of these creatures is truly the greatest evil.

Bug Fixes:

  • The Undead Legion saga has had apop changes in /seraph and /envy to better direct players to where they should be at.

Log in this weekend as we continue celebrating Dage the Evil's birthday with Part 2 of our "Master of the Underworld" story! Play as Dage as you recruit powerful allies, take out potential enemies, and gear up for war against his former master, Nulgath.

Back in January, we released Part 1 of the story, focusing on Nulgath the ArchFiend. Set in the past, your hero battles as Nulgath's Commandant. Your task? To observe Dage the Lich, a promising new addition to your Master's Nation... and assess his loyalty. Next week, we'll continue with Part 3, as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the 2012 Dage vs Nulgath war!

New Dark Rewards

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!

Underworld PVP zones:

  • Underworld Team PVP: /join dagepvp and choose which team you want to fight for
  • Underworld 1v1 PVP: /join dage1v1 and go head to head with your friend... or a stranger

  • Spend your trophies on all-new undead-themed rewards

Miscellaneous Fixes

Various miscellaneous combat bug fixes.

  • A patch was made to address disconnecting after dying in combat with monsters. Please report if you continue to run into this issue!
  • Fixed a bug that caused certain magical damage skills to not use the full damage range of weapons. Previously, some skills that did magical damage only used half of the weapon's damage range, rendering magic based classes significantly weaker when using weapons with large damage ranges.
Fixed a bug where Dage the Dark Lord’s safe zones were not registering under certain circumstances. Previously, there was a position desync whereupon entering the room, before moving, your position was registered incorrectly. If you attempted to move onto the right-side safezone before synchronizing your position, you would not make it on time without dashing.

(click this link to see the full ultra boss trailer)

Dage the Dark Lord battle tips:

  • Making sure to duck under the protection spells when Dage summons a giant undead may save your life, but which one is active is random. Plan ahead to ensure you can reach both, and dash if you need to!
  • Noxious Decay will be active for most of the fight, inverting all of your direct (“numbers healing”) heals and HoT’s into damage. Plan around this carefully- there are opportunities to heal.
  • After the first minute of the fight, Dage will permanently gain Might of the Legion, significantly strengthening him. That’s when the real battle begins!
  • Dage recovers with each soul he consumes, so be wary to keep yours safe…

The full breakdown and boss abilities can be found on the wiki.

DIFFICULTY WARNING: Legion members, this fight is designed to challenge the best of the best...Dage's most skilled. We recommend you group up and study strategy. This fight takes skill, coordination, and (most likely) several attempts. 

If you are a member of Dage's Undead Legion, YOU can take on ULTRA Dage to create "powered up" versions of the challenge fight gear. The Ultra Boss rewards will require:

  • membership in the Undead Legion
  • Legion Tokens
  • Insignias
  • base reward items from the Challenge boss

The Ultra Dage boss will ALSO let you upgrade some of your classic, fan-favorite legion armors and weapons into end-game boosted versions. We've added a mix of some of the most iconic rare and nonrare items, so that both old AND new players can show off their favorites!

  • Empowered armor quest requirements: level 80, base item, insignias, Legion Tokens
  • Empowered weapon quest requirements: level 95, base item, insignias, Legion Tokens 

Quest to create boosted versions of your:

  • Undead Champion 
  • Paragon Plate 
  • Classic Dark Caster

Several of the quests will require multiple items to begin:

Empowered Caladbolg: Caladbolg and Dual Caladbolg
quest reward: choose between either boosted weapon

Empowered Forge Spawn: Legion Bonfire Altar, Legion Bonfire, Legion Forge Spawn
quest reward: either boosted weapon or armor

Empowered BladeMaster: Dual BladeMaster Katanas, Living BladeMaster, Dark Unicorn Rib
quest reward: choose between the boosted single-wield or dual-wield katana, or the armor

Empowered Lich King: Ultimate Lich King, original Paragon Helm, Ultimate Lich King helm
quest reward: boosted armor

*Weekly quests reset every Friday at 12:01 AM EST. If you complete a weekly quest on a Thursday, it will be available again on Friday!

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!

Underworld PVP zones:

  • Underworld Team PVP: /join dagepvp and choose which team you want to fight for
  • Underworld 1v1 PVP: /join dage1v1 and go head to head with your friend... or a stranger

  • Spend your trophies on all-new undead-themed rewards

All month long, we'll be releasing new Legion and Underworld-themed reward farming sets for you to collect.

Members of the Undead Legion will also be able to craft items for gear exclusive to Dage the Evil's most loyal followers. 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.

Dark Caster Class Series Returns

The Undead Legion is made up of Lore's finest undead (and not-undead-yet) warriors. That is why last year, we brought back ALL the Dark Caster Class skills, tied to art created by Dage just for his birthday. Each class is available from Dage's Dark Birthday Shop for 2,000 ACs and will return each year for his birthday.

  • Infinite Dark Caster Class uses the Evolved DC class skills
  • Timeless Dark Caster Class uses the Arcane DC class skills
  • Immortal Dark Caster Class uses the original DC class skills

Original Class owners:

If you have the original Dark Caster Class, you will get the Immortal Dark Caster Class for FREE. Talk to Dage in the /darkbirthday map to complete his quest to claim your free class.

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 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.
