Pride 2021: Show Your True Colors

This month, and every month. Feeling like you're different, or don't belong, is always a challenge. That's why it is so important to recognize that our differences and unique qualities are what make us special. The Artix Entertainment community has always been made up of many different heroes: we live in different countries, believe different things, have different types of families.... but one thing has always been true. We believe that you should always be proud of who you are and the struggles you've overcome.

As people around the United States celebrate Pride month, we're bringing back our seasonal items... and NEW gear for you to show off!

  • Prismatic Pride Outfit + accessories*
  • Rainbow Pride Outfit + accessories
  • Shades of Pink Outfit + accessories
  • Shades of Violet Outfit + accessories
  • Rainbow Crocodile Pet

Live a life full of color, happiness, joy, and pride. Battle On!

* Four colors to customize (base, trim, accessories, and eye color)

#WorldGoals: Juneteenth is about equality. Respect. Kindness for all. 

Tomorrow is Juneteenth, and here in the US, we've just made it an official federal holiday. Some of you might be asking... "What's that?" Many of you already know. In case you don't, though... let me share what that means.

Juneteenth celebrates the emancipation of slaves in the United States. Most states in the US celebrate this on June 19th (which is where the holiday's name comes from, June + nineteenth) but in several areas around the country the celebrations can stretch across several days of parades, parties, lectures, and exhibitions celebrating African-American culture.

Members of our player community have every color skin, practice every religion, and come from nearly every country around the world. It has always been important to us to represent and promote equality, unity, kindness, and the spirit of playing together.

I hope you'll join us in continuing to move towards a better world, where all heroes can work alongside each other as we direct our combined energy, talent, and skill towards goals that will take us all further and higher.

Plane of Fire Invasion

Shadows of War: Into the Plane of Fire

Return to the Shadows of War Saga this weekend as our main story heats up... literally! Fiamme, the Avatar of Fire, has summoned you and Galanoth the DragonSlayer to help defend her realm, the Elemental Plane of Fire, from a new threat.

Malgor has joined forces with one of your old enemies, Tyndarius, scourge of the Embersea Isles and former General of the Queen of Monsters. Together, they've created the perfect weapon to invade the Elemental Plane of Fire; by corrupting Tyndarius' army, the Firestorm Onslaught, with Malgor's power, a new force has been formed... the ShadowFlame Onslaught!

This weekend, /join fireplanewar to begin your adventure:

  • Meet an old foe once more... as Tyndarius, leader of the FireStorm Army, allies with Malgor
  • Battle minions of Malgor's ShadowFlame as they invade the Plane of Fire
  • Take down waves of enemies to raise the water meter and unlock new goals
  • Your success or failure will determine the fate of Fiamme and the Plane of Fire itself!
