Moglin Kickstarter Ends Sunday

Help us make our dream of moglin plush a reality!

This is the FINAL WEEKEND for the AdventureQuest:Moglins Kickstarter! You've had moglins at your side in our video games. Now, help us bring Moglins to the real world! Check out our KickStarter to see what's coming, and discover the stretch goals the community has unlocked.

Once the KickStarter has officially ended, we will extend pledges via BackerKit, an affiliate of KickStarter. If you've been waiting to pay via PayPal, this is your chance! All pledges through BackerKit will count towards reaching the final stretch goals.


Moglins like Twilly, Zorbak, Twig, & Quibble are magical forest creatures born in our video game worlds. Back our Moglin Kickstarter to help them escape and join you in the real one.

Of course, each Moglin also comes with a code to unlock an in-game pet of itself in multiple Artix Entertainment video games.


Unlock the Master of Moglins CLASS in AQWorlds with the $120 Ultimate Moglin Collection. The Class art shown above is a KickStarter exclusive. (You will still be able to get the class by purchasing all 12 moglins from HeroMart after the KickStarter ends, but the art will be different.)

Oh! Our new Artix Games Launcher lets you play our games (with your moglins) without needing a browser or the Flash plugin.

Put a Moglin on your desk to cheer you on. They’ll keep you company while writing, drawing, coding, and gaming. Moglins love to watch your favorite shows with you...even when no one else will. You can keep the joy for yourself, or give a Moglin to someone you love.


Moglins are the ultimate sidekicks for real life adventurers like you. Help us bring them from the fantasy world into the real one!

Check out all of the Moglins on our Kickstarter Page...

Tonight: Live Moglin Puppet Show

Join us at 6 PM EST for the craziness!

Yup... this is actually happening! We will be streaming LIVE from the Artix Entertainment Secret Underground Lab tonight (Wednesday the 12th) at 6 PM EST, 3PM PST. You are invited to watch from your web browser or the new Artix Games Launcher. For the link to the livestream, simply check our Moglin Kickstarter page at Artix.com/Moglins on the day of the show for the link.

Hosted by the Moglins (voiced by Artix, Cysero, Vesper, Thyton & the AE Team) it will be about 30+ minutes of anything-goes Moglin mayhem and you'll want to watch LIVE because you can chat with us as the show goes on, and your choices will change how the puppet show plays out! It has a little something for everyone and, just between us, we went a little bit overboard on the props, scenes, and... well, you kinda need to come be a part of this. Also, we may never be stupid enough to do something like this again. *gulps*

P.S. When Kimberly from One-Eyed Doll heard we were doing the show she wrote, sang, and produced an original song for it! It will be premiered at the show.


P.P.S. There will be a live stream tab to our new Artix Games Launcher! So you can watch from there and also play all of our games without needing that soon-to-be-obsolete Flash plugin!

Artix Games Official Discord Server is OPEN!

Chat with your fellow heroes outside the games

After battling fire-breathing dragons, hordes of undead, and the odd orc or seven, sometimes all a hero wants to do is accept the quest to kick back and talk with their friends. Join us on the Artix Games official Discord Server! Chat about your favorite AE games, heromart, or just hangout with your fellow heroes. 


Check out the server guidelines: http://www.artix.com/community/discord/
Get a server invite link: join us on Discord

This is a pretty big step for our community, as we seek to bring everyone together in a real-time chat environment. A couple important points to remember:

  • Site alignment: Lawful Good. The main goal of our Discord server is to bring players together and let everyone have fun!
  • Fan Discord servers are still allowed and encouraged. Our official server is run by Artix Entertainment, but we welcome anyone who wants to create their own "home server" and discuss AE games with their friends.
  • The server follows AQ3D's "T for Teen" chat rating. You may see moderate profanity, but harassing and attacking other players is still not allowed.
  • Our moderators are there to help keep the server a friendly and fun hangout. It is a more casual place to hang out and chat, and we hope you'll help us keep it that way!

New Birthday Gear + LightCaster Class Returns

Limited Time Celestial-Themed Gear Shop Arrives Friday!

Find Aranx’s Celestial Birthday gear in the Featured Gear shop in your game menu! These are some of the best Good and Evil-themed items we’ll release this year, but they won't be available for long.

Limited Time Rare gear in this week's Featured Shop:

  • The First Fallen armor 
  • The First Fallen helms, wings, and weapons
  • The First Risen armor
  • The First Risen helms, wings, and weapons

The above items will go permanently rare on September 28th. The following items will be available until September 28th, then will not return until 2019, during the next Celestial Realm zone update.

  • Glowing Halo and Locks of Light
  • Glowing Halo of Light
  • Shining Blade of Glory
  • Shining Blade of Glory (member gold version)

Updates to LightCaster Class + LightMage Class

The Good news: the LightCaster Class is CRAZY strong and REALLY easy to get.
The Not-So-Good news: the LightCaster Class is CRAZY strong and REALLY easy to get.

If you do not have the LightCaster Class yet, starting this Friday, you'll need to obtain LightMage Class. LightMage is LightCaster’s younger sibling. It’s a less powerful but balanced version you'll unlock if you own the Evolved LightCaster or Enchanted LightCaster armors. 

In the name of improving class diversity and healthier game balance moving forward, we're making some changes to the LightCaster Class requirements.

The Better news: If you already have the LightCaster Class, NOTHING changes for you. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Go on blasting bad guys like you always have.

The Best news: LightCaster Class is NOT CHANGING or being nerfed. (BUT Heroes who do not already have the class will need to hit level 80 before they can start to unlock it.)

 If you don't have LightCaster Class yet, head to this Design Notes post to read more. You've unlocked a new quest!

Cleanse the Valley Of Ghosts

The Shogun of Shadows Story continues this weekend!

The story so far... One of Akiba's greatest enemies has returned to make war on Yokai Isle, and this time, he has a dark new ally. In the first conflict, Emperor Daisho fell in battle, leaving Princess Miko to rally the troops and defend her country from Jaaku, the Shogun of Shadows

This weekend... Empowered by an ancient artifact which enhances her Battle Priestess powers, you, Miko and her cohort head east to Jaaku's fortress. To get there, you must pass through the war-torn Heiwa Village. Once an idyllic town, its people must now fight to defend themselves from the ghosts spawned by the recent Shadow War. Their leader, Koro, offers a bargain - help them drive out the angry spirits, and they'll join you in your quest to slay Jaaku's 8-headed Shadow Dragon!

  • Drive out the angry spirits
  • Help Miko face the pain of her father's loss
  • Bring peace to the people of Heiwa Village

New Farming Set: Void Shogun

This year, one of our focuses has been on featuring a new roster of artists from the AQW community. We have so many talented artists out there, and the reception has been great. This weekend, we're featuring once more Yo Lae, an avid gamer (and Nulgath fan!) who's been a part of our community for years, and their Void Shogun armor set.

If you're a fan of Nulgath's designs, it's time to break out your resources! And if you're not sure who Nulgath or the Nation are, here's your chance to learn. The Void Shogun's quest is based on one of the classic Nulgath quests, the Fiend of Nulgath. 

To accept the quest, you'll need to complete the release in /heiwavalley AND have the Void Monk of Nulgath armor from the merge shop in /quibblehunt.

Gather the following items to turn the quest in to get the pieces of the gear:

  • 1 Unidentified 13
  • 10 Diamonds of Nulgath
  • 1 Nulgath Rune 10 
  • 1 Unidentified 24 
  • 1 Orochi’s Shadow (from the Akiba war boss)

The 0 AC farmable Void Shogun set is a permanent addition to the game, so if you do not have time to farm this weekend, never fear. It will still be here when you do!

Limited Time Set: Shadow Void Shogun

We're calling back to the fan-favorite "Shadow of Nulgath" set and with Yo Lae, created the Shadow Void Shogun set. Find the pieces of this set in your Featured Gear Shop until September 30th.
