Limited Quantity Mount Sets

Rare Collectors... It's Time To FLY!

For the first time EVER in AQW's history, we're able to release 4-legged mount armors, and we're giving those who like collecting rare gear the first crack* at grabbing one of these one-of-kind shining trophies that only a select few will possess!

Starting this Friday, August 29th, at 10:30 AM server time, head to our Limited Quantity Set page to grab one of these insur-MOUNT-ably awesome sets! Each set also comes with a unique badge in your Book of Lore! Watch for more preview art of the weapons, helms, and female armors tomorrow (and maybe a movie showing the flying!)

Introducing: The GryphonRiders!

This elite mounted legion of the Dragon Khan's army will reach our area this Friday, August 29th! You'll be able to find out more information on them in Battleon, as well as a link to the Limited Quantity Set website where you can purchase the set!

How Do Limited Quantity Sets Work?

  1. Log into a special LQS webpage on AQ.com 
  2. Purchase the set using either ACs or gold (if you have EVER upgraded your account, you can purchase the Legend sets for gold!)
  3. Log into AQW and find your set badge in the Book of Lore (no character page badge attached.)

Note: Item quantities will restock throughout the weekend so that everyone gets a fair chance at the gear. 

Frequently Asked Questions 

  • Will there be enough items for everyone? No, but with multiple restocks your changes of getting an item are pretty good... as long as you keep an eye on your clock and don't miss the restock!
  • Will item quantities update automatically? No, but once you purchase an item from the shop or revisit the page, you'll see an updated amount. 
  • If a set doesn't sell out right away, will the restock amount roll over? Yes. The next restock amount will always be added to the previous amount of gear. Gear not sold before a restock will remain in the shop.
  • Will the items be 0 ACs? All items sold in the LQSets will be 0 ACs, so you can keep them in your bank for free, forever!
  • Do I have to be a Legend to buy the Legend-only sets? You do not need to have an active upgrade to purchase the Legend sets, as long as you have upgraded your account at any time in the past!
