AQWorlds Game Moderator Call

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. Our emphasis for this hunt is on mods who speak other languages (in addition to English).

Who are Game Mods and what do they do?

  • 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.
  • If accepted, you'll create a new, unique identity for your AE team member persona, and you'll moderate using that account. 

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.

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!

How to Apply

Fill out the application here: Link

Status: Accepting Applications

Please note: due to the high volume of heroes who apply to join our game moderator team, we cannot respond to everyone about their application. 

Please note: due to the high volume of heroes who apply to join our game moderator team, we cannot respond to everyone about their application. 

Reminders and FAQs

1) How will you contact me if my application is accepted? 
By email. Please make sure you can access the email attached to your AQW game account.

2) How many hours do I need to mod?
There is no minimum # of hours a week. We ask that mods be on regularly while active but modding should be a fun extracurricular activity. A couple hours a week at most, and should not take away from real life obligations like school or work.

3) Do I need to change my name? Really? 
If you become a game mod, you'll use a new AE staff identity + get a staff account to use for moderating. Your staff account will get membership + ACs. Your current game account/s will remain as-is... but will get a few bonus gifts.

4) What if I got banned or muted in the past?
We know people make mistakes, and grow and change over time. Those are all looked at on a case-by-case basis, but a ban or mute won't automatically disqualify you.

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

The Class Hall Expands

Log in and get ready to rank up your classes AND knowledge! The Class Hall expands with two new wings and 60) class trainers, giving you insight and info on even more classes! 

We first opened the Hall of Classes in 2020 as a hub of class information for new and experienced players. Originally, /classhall only opened with its first wing, intended for starter and early-game classes. Now, we bring to you two more wings, intended for mid-game and late-game classes!

As a reminder, each wing of the hall represents a different slew of classes based on when you’re likely to encounter and use them, and how powerful they are. 

  • /classhalla: Starter and Early-game classes for heroes just beginning the game and story
  • /classhallb: Mid-game classes for people wrapping up sagas and looking for an upgrade
  • /classhallc: Late-game classes for people who are diving into the farming and some challenge content and are looking for powerful classes
  • /classhalld: End-game classes for people looking to take on the greatest challenges Lore has to offer (not yet released)

Speak to any of the class trainer NPC’s to find out about their class, where to obtain them, and what they’re best used for.

Some classes may be more or less powerful than others in the same hall, and some can be found earlier or later! These halls simply act as a guide for classes you can look towards, and find interest in.

This includes paid and package classes, but not classes with limited availability. Heromart classes are not included either. Classes will all be represented by their most readily available counterpart or simplest name, but you can use the wiki to find variants and reskins of classes when available.

Training Grounds Revamp

Behind the Hall of Classes is where you can find the training grounds. Here, you can fight differing testing dummies to test out your class skills and abilities. This update, we’ve given the training grounds a facelift- adding more dummies, more rooms, and more scenarios.


Additionally, there’s a new and difficult foe for you to take on in the boss room of the training grounds- Moglin Psiae’s Training Golem! Take on Psiae’s quest alone or with your friends, and you can obtain exclusive gear (with boosts!) and tons of experience.

Classhall Character Page Background

Now, you can use Classhall’s exterior as a background on your character page! Simply find the button in /classhall, and you’re all set.

Additional Changes

Several other smaller changes are also rolling out with this week’s release.

  • Binky’s Curse of Blades now works as intended (shared with Doomkitten)
  • Curse of Blades now affects up to 4 targets and reduces your Critical Damage by 700%, but only lasts 7 seconds.
  • Several monster auras now only function within their respective maps:
  • Darkon the Conductor’s Grown
  • Doomkitten and Binky’s Curse of Blades
  • Ultra Exos’s Chaos Power
  • Xiang and Ultra Xiang’s +Chaos Power has been renamed to Duality Power
  • Master of Moglin’s skill order has been adjusted, to make it more receptive to enhancement traits
  • Absolution’s damage penalty has been reduced to 15% (this change happened two weeks ago, but was missed in the changelog)

Leaving Soon: mark your calendars

Summer's heating up, and so are our weekly game releases! Check out the release calendar to see what's happening and when things leave so you don't miss a moment, a battle, or a limited time reward.

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

Seasonal Set Details

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 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 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.
