New Midweek Update is Live!

Fishy Sword, Fresh Updates, and Fixes

Our Tuesday update is not all! Battle the River Fishman in /greenguardwest for a chance to get the 0 AC Fishy Sword. Plus, we'd updated and adjusted a number of old maps, quests, and items to make them more enjoyable for everyone.

First caught in 2012, it was only ever available as the Fishy Sword and Shield dual-wield weapon in the Fishing Gear Shop. Newer heroes will need to combine the Fishy Sword drop with Fishin' Chips to create the Fishy Sword and Shield.

Additional Updates

Based on your feedback across various platforms, we've made a few quality of life updates to older maps & items.

Raxgore Shortcut: if you've beaten all of the quests* in /doomvaultb, you'll now have a much faster way to go straight to Raxgore. You'll see a button that will take you to the bttle frame.

Valencia /Eventhub Update: 

  • Hollow Treasure Hunt button added
  • Stars added to hunts to help communicate difficulty
  • Rose Rapiers quest updated and rebalanced

Darkon House Item Stacks Increased

  • Juror #1 / #2 / #3 / #4: x1 > x22

In our quest to give all you nostalgia-lovers more of what you're after, we've been digging through old, unreleased item files and looking at player feedback for art (like NPCs/monsters/gear) from other AE games we can release in AQWorlds and man... today's planning call was full of meaty ideas and good memories.

Next week's call will be dedicated to reviewing a five-page doc covering specific feedback about the last year of midweek updates so future additions can bring you even more of what you want to see!
