Happening Now: WAR Against the TechnoLich
Doomwood III: Legacy of Darkness
This weekend.... WAR against the Darkness as Technolich Vortrix sends his army against us. Join your fellow heroes in battle and take out waves of the Deadtech army in our Legacy of Darkness Saga finale!
Also, an insider secret with this release... today, the release of the AQWorlds DoomWood III finale, is also Artix's real-life oldest son’s birthday. Aidan is now level 6. He hopes you are having fun and looks forward to having his little brother Kyger as both a game, and real-life battle pet.
We've got an Army (of Darkness!) worth of war rewards coming your way this weekend! Take down war waves to earn Deadtech Medals and unlock wicked new 0 AC rewards. And if you are a member and kept your Kyger pet from the last Legacy of Darkness update, you can quest to level him up into a trained, Obsidian Light of Destiny-wielding battlepet!
Featured Rare Set: Cyber Paladin
Defy the darkness with the blindingly bright (and perma-rare) Cyber Paladin set. Available in your Featured Gear Shop until August 31st!
Daily Gift Drops Incoming!
I was out much of this week due to a family emergency... and that meant Wednesday and Thursday's daily gifts did not arrive. BUT tonight we're adding those in, along with the scheduled gift for tonight. You'll be able to complete the full FireMaster set in one go... but make sure you have the DoomMaster armor set from the Doom Legacy merge shop. You'll need it!
And if you were one of the many heroes waiting anxiously to own a pair of Stellaria's cat ears, you're in luck! Return this Sunday and fight to earn your own pair of 0 AC Rainbow Paladin Cat Ears. Shine on!
Coming next week:
- Monday: 48 Hour Class Points Boost
- Tuesday: New 0 AC item
- Wednesday: 48 Hour Rep Boost
- Thursday: New 0 AC item
- Friday: 72 Hour Gold Boost
- Saturday: Farming Resource Buff
- Sunday: New 0 AC item

Summer might be almost over, but not our AdventureCoin bonus! We're rolling out Summer AC sale right into our Back to School bonus. So if you're looking forward to next month's Talk Like a Pirate Day gear, the start of our six-part Shadows of Chaos chapter, or our Brasilian Independence Day /party, this is the time to top up!
New Character Page Badges are live!
The Necrotic Sword of Doom and Void Highlord character pages achievement badges have been awarded in recognition of the time spent by those who fought and completed quests to unlock them.
- If you farmed the Necrotic Sword of Doom, talk to Braeus in Shadowfall to accept the quest to unlock your badge.
- If you farmed the Void HighLord Class, talk to Tharanak Hrii in /shadowblast. Complete his quest and your badge will appear!
Note on item variants: The IoDa-obtained item(s) and the farmed versions have the same art and boosts, but are different items. Due to this, the IoDA versions are not eligible to unlock the character page badge (or the dual-wield version of the NSoD in /nostalgiaquest).
The good news is this means you can have both versions though! If you previously obtained your item by IoDA, you can still get the farmed version to get the badges with.
*We're very sorry, but since the Undo is still a manual process, Zohrah will not be able to Undo any of these IoDA choices except as stated on the Prize Redemption Page.
More achievement badges will be added in the future. Which would you like to see?
