Nulgath's Birthday Returns
New Birthday Rares, Farming Rewards, and a new Story!
Nulgath the ArchFiend, lord of the OverSoul, has gathered around him many followers, creatures, and allies over the centuries. This weekend, as we celebrate Nulgath’s birthday once more, log in and battle to uncover more information about one of his mysteriously silently minions, the sentient Rock Beast known only as… Crag.
Talk to Bamboozle in /cragglerock to begin your quest. Collect special gems for his best boulder bud to earn the special gear that only a powered-up Crag can create.
Complete Bamboozle's quests to reawaken (or at least... partially /heal) Crag to collect stones for his merge shop and to rank up the new CraggleRock faction.
And if you're a true member of Nulgath's Nation, you'll want to find Lae in the /tercessuinotlim zone! He's got a bounty of new gear for you... IF you can pay his price. All crafted by Yo Lae for members of Nulgath's Nation to celebrate the ArchFiend's birthday!
Nulgath's Seasonal Birthday Shop Returns
Last year, in honor of the Flame Dragon Invasion, we brought 1Nulgath's Void Rebirth and Void Awakening sets from OverSoul into AQWorlds. These sets will return every year for his birthday, as our way of helping all his fans celebrate!
Nulgath's seasonal Birthday Shop features:
- Void Rebirth armor set
- Void Awakening armor set
- Shielded variants of both armors
- Nulgath's Bounty Hunter Drone Pet (with two quests)
- Nulgath's Birthday Gift Pet (with one quest)
Next week, even more gear will be added to celebrate Nulgath's birthday, including the Void Jolly Roger set, the OverSoul Paladin, the Void Cowboy, and more!
Not sure who Nulgath is? Read on!
Nulgath the ArchFiend is the in-game persona for Nulgath-the-team-member, one of AQWorlds' original artists. Though he no longer works regularly for Artix Entertainment, his art style (prevalent in early AQW and featured in Oversoul) and the character itself remain hugely popular with many of our long-time heroes. To recognize their dedication and enjoyment, we hold an event in-game each year to celebrate the character and give them a hefty dose of the gear they love.
Honorable Hero 2020 moved to next week
It has been a CRAZY week! Reens (the dev in charge of weekly releases, item set-up, and testing) set up over 150 items sent in by our artists, updated 11 in-game maps, and set-up 24 quests... Her gift to Nulgath's Nation and the ArchFiend himself is a mighty one. Now, all that's left is for you to enjoy it!
But because of just how huge this week was, to keep the team sane, we've shifted the Honorable Hero 2019 awards to next week.
