Log in each day for a new reward, boost, or other gift in AQWorlds

We know a lot of you have had unexpected schedule changes recently. To help keep your spirits high and vacation time fun, we're making sure that when you log into AdventureQuest Worlds, you have even more to do. More rewards to hunt for, quests to complete, and battles to win. For the next several weeks, log in each day for a new item, boost, buff, or surprise. 

Spring Break Surprise item drops will all be available through the middle of April. Surprise server boosts and drop rate/quantity boosts will only be available for a limited time. Keep checking this Design Notes posts to see that day's featured gift... and get a hint for what comes next!

Extended Spring Break Gift List

Not Currently Active (Want Them to Return?)

The 72 period for these Extended Spring Break Daily Gifts has ended... but we can always bring them back! Send Alina a message on Twitter and include the hashtag: #AQWSpringBreakGifts and there's a chance the gift/boost could return soon.

We more than doubled the drop rate on this ultra-low drop resource. This was a generous boost to help everyone actively farming. It was not so high that it will invalidate all of the hard work of the players who fought to create it already.

Double+ Drop Rate for Spirit Orbs from the Essential Essences and Bust Some Dust quests. (Drop rates increased from 5/10/15/20 up to 20/25/30/40!)

Unlock the Bio-War Cultist Set

Available every year from April 1st - 30th

April is the month of WAR! The world of Lore is never peaceful for long... and the battles that lie ahead of you are only going to get more intense. Embrace your fate (and a future full of combat... literally*). This month's seasonal set will outfit you for the coming conflict: the Bio-War Cultist.

* The Goddess will be pleased. She favors her devoted Cultists.

April Set: Bio-War Cultist

Starting Monday, April 1st at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock the Bio-War Cultist and War Cultist armors and all their accessories!**

There are two ways to get the gear:

1) Total package: Buy the entire set directly through the website for $9.99 USD 

2) Individually: Buy each of the individual pieces from Garek the Traveling Gear Merchant in Battleon.

The total cost to buy all of the gear individually is 4,000 ACs, so getting all the gear from the pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 2,000 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Bio-War Cultist armor
  • War Cultist  armor
  • War Cultist Helms
  • Bio-War Cultist Helms
  • War Cultist Wings
  • Bio-War and War Cultist Blades
  • War Cultist Claws
  • an exclusive character page badge

** The character page badge will go live in the afternoon on Monday, April 1st.

Seasonal Set Details

Each month, we'll feature a new set, available only during that month every year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as an upgrade bonus? 

Upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages; new bonus gear comes out roughly every month. Seasonal set packs are bought separately. Just like the Flame Dragon Warrior pack, you can buy the entire set directly, for one price, on our site. You can ALSO buy the individual pieces in-game.

This set will return EVERY April, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in 2020, or 2021, or 2022, etc.

If this isn't a new upgrade bonus, what IS the next bonus?

You can see all the available upgrade bonuses on our upgrade site. The next bonus set will be available soon, so keep an eye on the Design Notes! 

What if I just want ONE of the items?

You're in luck! Talk to Garek in Battleon. He'll be selling the individual pieces of the set through April 30th.

Where do I get my gear if I buy the full set through the website?

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.
