Happy Father's Day... of DOOM

Celebrate Lore's Darkest Dad with a new ShadowScythe adventure

This weekend is Father's Day, and this year, we want to /cheer on all our fathers. But especially Sepulchure, the most maligned, misunderstood father an Empress could ever have. This weekend, log in and travel back in time to the days when Empress Gravelyn was knee-high to a skeletal warrior. Battle to help Sepulchure's undead assistant keep his little Princess from destroying the dracolich fortress and try to survive her first experiments into necromancy. She's her father's favorite, and he is a VERY PROUD PAPA. Making her cry might be the LAST thing you ever do. Literally.

  • Battle to round up the necro minions Baby Gravelyn loosed into the halls
  • Clean up after her... experiments (EW)
  • Give Baby Gravelyn her "snackies" (but do NOT ask about the ingredients)
  • Battle Baby Gravelyn's bestest, newest friend! (If you DARE)

Complete this weekend's new zone to unlock the One Final Task farming quest. Each time you complete it, you'll be able to choose another piece of the Shadow Phoenix armor set (shown above).

http://www.aq.com/cms/images/DN-PatchNotesDefault.jpg

Plus, for all you shadow-loving heroes out there, complete the zone to unlock the ShadowScythe House Merge shop. Find the Sepulchure's Wing House (5 rooms) for all heroes. Members can unlock the Shadow Family Quarters (7 rooms) with the BEST view from the Dracolich's flying fortress (shown above)! Find the houses and many other Doom-themed house items in the shop tonight.

To all the Father-Heroes out there... Thanks!

Father's Day is the time of year when we dust off our golf bags, sharpen our grilling spatulas and let our dads, grandfathers and other father figures know how much they mean to us! 

Every father will enjoy the bounty of BBQ grill gear, the up-to-par Golf Suit set, a Gravity Defying Coffee Mug, the paper-cut-inducing Newsparchement, and the good Ol Fishin’ Armor Set... you can find them all in your Game Menu. Or better yet, get your dad to log in and battle alongside you! Then he can get his own!

New Beach Towel Capes + Taking Pride in Who You Are

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 (especially at the ages most of our community are... whoever said being a kid or teen was easy?!)

Every June, we release our Summer Shop. And this month -- when people across the world celebrate Pride Month and staying true to who you are, no matter who you are -- we're adding in 5 new striped beach towel capes, available for gold to everyone:

  • Rainbow Striped Beach Towel
  • Multi-Striped Beach Towel
  • Prismatic Striped Beach Towels (with color customization in 3, 4, or 5 stripe designs)

The prismatic capes stripes will be color customizable and will match your Base, Trim, Accessory, Eye, Hair colors, depending on how many CC stripes are in your cape.

The team and I stand by our heroes, and -- like many other companies across the internet and world this month -- are taking this opportunity to show that support visibly.  We want all our heroes to feel free to show off who you are with pride... at the beach, at home, at school, and everywhere else your journeys take you.

House Hunters: Construction Quest

Talk to Carl in /BuyHouse to build 10 new houses!

Last month, we asked on social media what in-game buildings/maps you'd like to see turned into equippable houses... and now, construction is ready to begin! Head to the /buyhouse zone and talk to Carl (of the 3 Little Wolves) to begin questing for the building materials you'll need to craft your perfect house.

House Hunt Details

To craft your dream home, you'll only need two things: the blueprint for that floorplan and building materials. Lots of building materials. Each floorplan has a different way to get it.

  • Clubhouse: Battle the RiddleLord Golem
  • Citadel Caverns: Battle Belrot the Fiend
  • Citadel Fortress: Murray’s shop
  • Dragonrune House: Elemental Master rep shop
  • Dragonrune Hall: Battle for the Mana Golem's Core to upgrade the Dragonrune House
  • Hachiko Hotel: Yokai rep shop
  • Arcangrove House: Arcangrove rep shop
  • Tower of Magic: Battle for the Mana Golem's Core to upgrade the Arcangrove house
  • Falcontower: Battle Dragon Drakath
  • Seraphic Fortress: Seraphic Gear shop

Talk to Carl to quest for the building materials you'll need. Each house requires a hefty load of wood, glass, and other materials. Plus gold. These little wolves don't oversee constructionf for free. 

10 Year Achievement Tracker Class Update

Last October, we announced the newest Achievement Tracker rewards... exclusive class variants. Since the planned rewards were taking longer than expeceted, we released the class armor sets. But now, at long last, our most dedicated players will be able to unlock their free class variation!

  • 10 Years Played: Highseas Commander
  • 600,000 AdventureCoins: Grim Necromancer
  • 9 Years Membership: Skycharged Grenadier

You can read more details on each of the classes in this Design Notes post.

7 Deadly Dragons Epilogue

The Mysterious Egg Opens!

There are 7 deadly vices -- Wrath, Envy, Pride, Lust, Gluttony, Sloth, and Greed -- and 7 Great Dragons that embody them. In June of 2017, Galanoth and the Order of DragonSlayers asked for your help to cleanse our world of their terror. We were left with a very Mysterious Egg, but no way to discover what lived inside or why it was locked away... until tonight. Once you've completed the 7 Deadly Dragons Saga and opened the Heptagonal Chest, talk to LoreMaster Maya in /mysteriousegg to begin your quest to hatch it.

After you complete LoreMaster Maya's quests, unlock a shop with the 0 AC Shadow Dragon's Defender set!

* If you have not completed the 7 Deadly Dragons Saga, see the guide below for your first adventure in the Saga or check your Story Map in-game.

Open the Heptagonal Chest: Collect the 7 Deadly Keys 

Deep under the town of Battleon (/join battleundere), a Draconic Oracle breathes in the fumes of inspiration and divination. He will also direct you to find the Heptagonal Chest. He believes it holds an object that will help you towards your destiny, but cannot be sure. Defeat all seven of the Deadly Dragons to open the chest, and unlock the Elemental DragonSlayer set and the Mysterious Mana Egg pet!

(Need help finding Tai-Shar, the Draconic Oracle? Check out the wiki)

7 Deadly Dragons Saga Guide

Before you can unlock a prize, you have to battle to EARN it! Complete the 7 Deadly Dragons Saga to start tonight's update.

Ashfall Camp: /Join Ashfallcamp and talk to Galanoth to learn about the 7 Deadly Dragons you must defeat.

  • Quest for QuarterMaster Senna to stock the camp
  • Defend Ashfall with Gibbs
  • Learn Draconic Lore with DragonSlayer Loremaster Dedara*
  • and talk to Galanoth to slay three fiery dragons with Galanoth as you warm-up for the adventures ahead!

Glutus, Dragon of Gluttony (/join gluttony)

Glutus, Dragon of Gluttony, has terrorized men — especially DragonSlayers — for far too long. NO DragonSlayer has managed to survive bathe with him, and Galanoth is making this bathe personal. After years of gorging, and eating thousands of heroes, knights, and 'Slayers, it's time for Glutus to go on a DIE-t!

Valsarian, Dragon of Pride (/join pride)

For millennia, dragons were the greatest creatures on Lore… until humans came. Until DragonSlayers came. Battle to save Darkmoor Village, the first town Valsarian's Storm Drakel army has conquered as he begins his press to turn humans into slaves... and Dragons into KINGS! 

Goregold, the Dragon of Greed (/join greed)

Dragons invade, kill, and most importantly --they hoard. Each dragon guards a vast treasure trove of gold, gems, and priceless artifacts... all very, very tempting for any thieves foolish enough to risk their wrath. But when evidence appears of a rogue DragonSlayer stealing from dragon hoards for his own benefit, Galanoth needs your help to uncover the truth.

Phlegnn, the Dragon of Sloth (/join sloth)

Dragons. Zombies. Creepy slime creatures. Its easy to fight monsters you can see. The real danger, however, is an invisible sickness spreading through the village of Gisunt Heights. Lim the Scientist has traced the outbreak to its source. Take out Phlegnn, Slime Dragon of Sloth and fine a cure for the plague before it spreads beyond the quarantine zone!

Lascivia, the Dragon of Lust (/join lust)

Deep inside a fortress, hidden from sight and out of reach of the family who would seek to reclaim them... Lascivia, Dragon of Lust feasts and frolics and delights in the antics of the kidnapped, enchanted princes and princesses - her royal horde hoard!  Battle to aid Princess Cecily in her quest to free her fiance and rescue the other members of Lascivia's Hoard'em!

Maloth, the Dragon of Envy (/join dragoncrown)

Dragons of all elements and races know the legend of the Dragon Crown - only one worth of ruling ALL dragonkind can wear it. Most assumed it was just a myth... until now. Maleth, the Darkness Dragon of Envy, wants the crown. YOU need to stop him from getting it.

Gorgorath, the Dragon of Wrath (/join Wrath)

While searching for the treasure of Evil Eye Grim, Captain Rhubarb awakened the mighty undead dragon, Gorgorath. Now, to protect your friend, you'll need to take on Gorgorath's horde of minions!

Double Holiday Celebration

Log in and battle for Korin's Happy Bag Helm!

Bag yourself a new helm this weekend! Korin is one of the craziest, most belovedly-wacky team members and characters in our games. Known for always wearing a paper bag on his head, he is currently the lead animator for AdventureQuest 3D and a regular streamer on Artix's Twitch channel. When one of Korin's followers on Twitter* suggested we celebrate National Brown Bag it Day players on social media recently suggested we celebrate Korin today... players** and team members alike knew we couldn't pass up the opportunity.

Log in and battle Marianus in the /natatorium for a chance to get your own Korin's Happy Bag Face helm in AdventureQuest Worlds. Then watch our Twitch Channel for Korin's streams (where he gives away even more bag designs in AdventureQuest 3D)!

* Bagtastic idea, TonyVirgo!
** Shoutout to the Church of Korin (and @PolishAQW for inspiring this promo image)

Shadows of War: Pirate Queen's Favor

The ShadowLord is coming to collect

Last week, we survived and encounter with Teja the Pirate Queen. She is one of the fierce, independent warriors Malgor has recruited to his side, but in restoring her lost crew, we've won a favor. A SMALL favor. She will not turn you in to collect the ShadowLord's bounty, but there's plenty of treachery to go around. This weekend, fight to stay alive and uncaptured as Pirate Queen Teja's crew shows their true colors... and go after the ShadowLord's real prize!


The story so far...

After Malgor the Shadowlord failed to recruit you into his Army, tried to imprison you, AND accused you of killing the Queen of Monsters, two things became very clear. HE cannot be trusted and YOU need to take action against him.  FAST.

The Queen of Monsters seemed content to let her children and allies wreak havoc in her name. But Malgor is actively recruiting people to take over our world. And ALL the worlds.  That means we need to start gathering our allies and power now, and preventing him from doing the same.

You have already added Varga, Goddess of War, to your party, and reawakened a small part of your power again. But you will need to hone it further before you will be able to reach all of the people we need.  Last week, we began the quest for our next ally -- Teja, the Pirate Queen of the southern seas. 

  • She is known for being fearless, and loyal to her crew.
  • She put out her own eye, and had it alchemically transformed into an enchanted gemstone orb that turns people to stone.
  • Malgor is wants her to be his ally... which means there must be a VERY good reason to prevent that.

BlackSea Booty

Battle the zone boss in this weekend's story update to unlock the pieces of the Monstrous Pirate armor set.

Loot in /GraniteCove

  • Blacksea Pirate set drops from monsters 
  • Blacksea Captain set drops from the boss monster 
  • Bloodsea Captain set and Blacksea Pirate Disguise are available from a shop after completing the story

The Shadows of War Story Continues in June...

Pirate Queen Teja is only the first of many allies we'll need if we want to take on ShadowLord Malgor... and WIN. Next week, we launch the epilogue of the 7 Deadly Dragons Saga with the opening of the Mysterious Egg. Then, in June, we'll return to the Shadows of War Saga to check in our Empress Miko, our current allies, and quest for more help.

The Memes are HERE!

Meme (not May-May) Rares Shop Now Available

Earlier this year, we got a huge amount of love for the idea of a Meme Shop in AQWorlds, so... you asked for it,and here it is! Gear up to celebrate May, the month of mermaids, massive TV show finales, and now... Memes! Find the all-new Master of Memes armor set and other meme-tastic items in your Game Menu until June 7th.

Crafted by Noir and Darkon, two of the coolest artists to surf the internet, these items will make your friends (and your enemies) say WHUT. (Until the shop goes rare, and then they'll say... WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE?!) Just like a meme's impact only lasts for so long, the items in this shop will only be available for a limited time.

Memes*... WHUT?

If you're reading this on the internet (and 99.99% of you are), then you're probably familiar with "internet memes." A meme is something -- usually a piece of media, and often funny or catchy --  that spreads rapidly across the internet. Memes spread becacuse they're a very effective way to spread ideas from person to person (think of them like an "idea virus").

This site has a great, easy to understand explanation. Why not makeuseof it?

Our homage to memes contains some of our artists (and your) favorite plays on popular concepts and ideas. 

The shop contains:

  • Master of Memes armor
  • Meme Ripper scythe
  • Meme Master hair and locks
  • WAT Flail
  • Omae wa mou shindeiru… Nani? cape
  • Shindeiru morph helms
  • Glaring glasses morph helms
  • Whut face morph helms
  • Pikadragon helm and pet
  • Pepecundus morph helm
  • Menacing Aura cape
  • ULTRA Overpowered Hair helm
  • Papa the ArchFiend morph helm
  • Papa the Sneevil morph helm
  • STOP watch mace
  • You Died! cape
  • Megalomaniac morph helm

Feels Good, Hero.

This one's for all you heavy-hitters looking to SHINE. Find the GrandPapa the Golden sneevil morph helm in your Game Menu until June 7th. (The regular Papa the Sneevil morph helm will also be available for 2,000,000 gold.) Once you buy this helm, you can merge it into a 0 AC version in Vinara's Odds Shop in /battleontown for free storage. (But once you do, you cannot get the gold back, so be sure!)

Shadows of War: Teja the Pirate Queen

Quest to Ally with the Pirate Queen

The War of Shadows is far from over. Malgor, the leader of the ShadowFlame Army, brought an army to your world. He said YOU were responsible for the Queen of Monsters's death. He sees you as a threat, and was ready to imprison you if you did not agree to help him. All of these facts point to one thing... Shadowlord Malgor cannot be trusted. 


After all of the chaos the Queen of Monsters wreaked, it is clear that you cannot sit back and deal with smaller threats to the world. That means we need to start gathering two things NOW: allies and power.

You have already added Varga, Goddess of War, to your party, and reawakened a small part of your power again. But you will need to hone it further before you will be able to reach all of the people we need. Some of them are quite far from us in time, or in space, or both.


This week, we start close to home. Varga has tasked you with a quest: to recruit Teja, the Pirate Queen of the southern seas. 

  • She is known for being fearless, and loyal to her crew.
  • She put out her own eye, and had it alchemically transformed into an enchanted gemstone orb that turns people to stone.
  • Malgor is wants her to be his ally... which means there must be a VERY good reason to prevent that.

This week, you'll need to fight to earn the trust of Teja the Pirate Queen and avoid becoming HER captive.

BlackSea Booty

Battle through tonight's story update in Granite Cove to unlock the pieces of the BlackSea Pirate, BlackSea Captain, and BloodSea Captain armor sets!

  • Blacksea Pirate set drops from monsters in this week's zone
  • Blacksea Captain set drops from this week's boss monster
  • Bloodsea Captain set and Blacksea Pirate Disguise are available from a shop after completing the story

Teja's Story Continues...

Before you met her, Shadowlord Malgor convinced Teja the Pirate Queen that it was in her best interest to capture you. That allying with him was the only way she could guarantee clear skies and safe sailing for her crew. Next week, log in and fight to understand WHY Shadowlord Malgor wanted Pirate Queen Teja on his side.

New: Void Pirate Armor Sets

Available in the Wheel of Doom merge shop!

The Wheel of Doom spins round and round... and this week, as we quest to gain our first ally against Malgor the ShadowLord, we have an all-new set for the Wheel of Doom: the Void Pirate armors! 

Find the gear in the Wheel of Doom merge shop! 

  • Void Pirate Destroyer armor
  • Void Pirate armor
  • Void Pirate's Hood
  • Void Pirate's Dagger
  • Void Pirate's Cutlass
  • Void Pirate's Anchor cape
  • Void Destroyer's Blade

Get your Free Spins

Everyone loves to get prizes... and that's why we brought back back free spins for the Wheel of Doom!

  • Members get one free spin a day while their upgrade is active
  • All players get one free spin a week. 

See the Free Spins Design Notes for more details.

Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness

We've gotten a lot of really positive feedback after introducing the free spins... but also a lot of you who wanted 1) a way to make sure you got an Item of Donated Awesomeness and 2) kept spinning in a quest to get the Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness to drop from the Wheel... and then not didn't get it.

That's why we introduced the Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness. This item is available from the Doom Merge Shop, so even if you don't receive the EIoDA as a bonus prize, you can save up your Treasure Potions and get the PIoDA.

Important Points

  • The PIoDA will be a Wheel of Doom merge shop exclusive. 
  • Cost: 1,000 Treasure Potions. 
  • You can get both the EIoDA (from the Wheel) and the PIoDA (from the merge shop)
  • The PIoDA currently stacks up to x5. We are currently planning to raise the cap later this year.

At a cost of 1,000 Treasure Potions, that means a member who ONLY uses their one free spin per day/week will need to log in every day for about 2.5 years to get it... but they WILL get it eventually. 

* Exceptions include staff personal items, custom weapon contest prizes, HeroMart items, etc

Infernal Shadow Lord set changes

Earlier this year, we added the Infernal Shadow Lord armor set into the Wheel of Doom. Due to an issue with the armor's set-up, duplicate versions of it were dropping for a short time. We have removed the entire set from the Wheel of Doom. It is now only available through the Wheel of Doom merge shop.
