This Weekend: Double DOOM
Sepulchure's Saga Returns + Wheel of Doom Update
Love. Loss. And a Darkness that will change the fate of the world… This is Sepulchure the DoomKnight’s story.
This weekend, log in and battle as Lynaria, Queen of Swordhaven. Your mission: to save your best friend from the DOOM that consumes him. Journey through the Plane of Light to gather magical reagents, grow stronger than you've ever been, and cast the spell that could save your friend from eternal Darkness.
Queen Lynaria has vowed to save Sepulchure -- the man who was once Swordhaven's most loyal knight -- but neither situations, stories, or people are simply black and white. This weekend, events transpire that will change both their lives forever... for Good AND Evil.
This weekend, fight to unlock two all-new armor sets:
- Reki Roland's "Worshipper of DOOM" from the release boss
- Ferozakh's "Celestial StarMage" from tthe post-release farming quest
The Wheel of Doom Evolves... Week 1
The Wheel of Doom spins round and round... and this week, the team is working on adding the revolution(ary)* Platinum Item of Donate addition to the Doom Merge Shop, bringing back free spins, and adding an all-new gear set!
We know a lot of you are raring to redeem your free spins... so we're adding a full new Epic rarity set for you! Each of the set pieces will be available from the Wheel of Doom and from the Doom merge shop.
Pieces of the set include:
- ShadowScythe Sorcerer armor
- ShadowHood of Doom
- ShadowHorns of Doom
- Dark Aura Staff
- ShadowScythe Spell Blade
- Shadow's Aura Orb (single and dual wield)
- Shadow Sorcerer's Wrap
- Shadow's Aura Wrap
Free Spins + PIoDA Update
The Team of Doom (tm) - aka Yorumi, Captain Rhubarb, Cemaros, and Reens - began laying out the return of the free spins last week. The Member Daily Spin already exists, but (surprisingly, after 10 years!) we do not have functionality for a weekly quest. Yorumi is coding that up today, then will send it off for testing.
Member daily spins back in testing today. Scheduled release this Friday, pending testing / tracking confirmation.
Weekly spins for all players in development. We will need at least a week for testing, to confirm it resets and awards properly. Scheduled release - next Friday, pending testing and tracking confirmation.
Aside from the weekly quest coding, Cemaros and her testers' main focus this week is confirming that all the new item tracking we are adding works and is accurate. Once they give the greenlight, we'll be able to add the Platinum Item of Donated Awesomness into the Doom Merge shop.
Micro-Trip: Check List
I am leaving super-early Wednesday morning, journeying to Chicago on a secret birthday-surprise mission. Before I leave the Secret Underground Lab for the Windy City, I need to...
- Make puns (not war)
- Break puns (not windows)
Reens and Memet will take the helm for AQWorlds while I am out gallavanting across the midwest. Have an EXCELLENT weekend full of Doom and delight!
* Wheel pun!
