Underworld Chronomancer Class

The 2020 Calendar is here, and will remain forever epic!

It’s that TIME of year again... a new Calendar Class is here! When you get the 2020 Calendar from HeroMart, you'll unlock in-game rewards inside AQ3D, AdventureQuest, DragonFable, EpicDuel, and the Underworld Chronomancer Class / Armor set in AQWorlds.

The Underworld Chronomancer Class combines the core skills and hourglasses of the Timeless Chronomancer Class with three new, 2020 exclusive consumables:

  • the Timepiece of Inevitability 
  • the Timepiece of Madness 
  • the Timepiece of Pestilence

Currently, the Underworld Chronomancer has the same icons and animations as Corrupted Chronomancer (which were intended to be a part of the Timeless Chronomancer theme. Based on your feedback, we will update the icons and animations to be unique to the Underworld Chrono class.

Timeless Chronomancer Class?!

Last year's Corrupted Chronomancer Class and this year's UnderWorld Chronomancer Class showcase our new style of releasing Calendar/Chronomancer classes. Each of these classes, and future calendar classes, will have:

  • a core base of skills will return each year 
  • a set of gameplay-altering items which will return from year to year
  • a set of unique gameplay-altering items (exclusive to that year's class) that affect your play style according to what you equip
  • All-new art and a new name

We call the core base of skills the Timeless Chronomancer Class. With the addition of the year-exclusive items, we can make an almost-endless array of variants, each with its own feel: the Corrupted Chronomancer, the Underworld Chronomancer, and many more to come!

The Timepieces that come with the 2020 UnderWorld Chronomancer Class can be used in conjunction with the returning Hourglass consumable items to alter the way the class plays.

Calendar Class Gameplay Recap

The new calendar classes are built around 6 unique class-only consumable items. These act as a (pseudo) sixth skill you can use to customize the class to your own style and needs. There are...

3 Hourglasses

These provide a base to your class. They either buff you in specific ways or provide complicated interactions to your skills. (These or other class items like them will return each year.)

3 Timepieces

These alter your skills with different gameplay elements.

Top off your stacks of Hourglasses and Timepieces by grabbing the pet in your Book of Lore 2020 Calendar badge shop. 

Gameplay example:

  1. Prepare before a fight by equipping and using an Hourglass. (Hourglasses last up to 2 hours or until you log out or die.) 
  2. Then, switch to a Timepiece to use during fights. 
  3. The Hourglass aura will remain, meaning you can mix and match any one Hourglass with any one Timepiece.**

Note: You can only have one Hourglass and one Timepiece active at a time. (Changing to a new one will end the affect from the previous Hourglass or Timepiece.)

Underworld Chronomancer Details

Recommended Enhancements: Lucky, Hybrid.

Underworld Chronomancers rely on Hourglasses and Timepieces they create using their Hourglass Pet (equipable items found in the Book of Lore) to manipulate and distort time itself.

Stats: Strength, Dexterity and Intellect.

Mana Regen: Gain mana from all hits landed in combat, and especially on critical hits.  The amount depends on damage relative to *your own* HP total.

Abilities

Timeless Strike

Deals damage based on your weapon damage. Each of your skills gets an additional benefit from Hourglasses and Timepieces you equip in your consumables slot. Hourglasses and Timepieces can be obtained from the Hourglass pet in the Book of Lore.

Type: Physical
Mana Cost: 0
Cooldown: 2 seconds       

Rank 1: Timeless Rift

Deals damage to your target and applies Temporal Rift to you. Temporal Rift stacks 4 times and is used by your other abilities.

Type: Physical/Magical       
Mana Cost: 15       
Cooldown: 4 seconds

Rank 2: Hourglass Reversal

Reverses time to heal you and up to 4 allies. Heal on you is increased by stacks of Temporal Rift and consumes those stacks.       

Type: Physical/Magical       
Mana Cost: 30       
Cooldown: 16 seconds

Rank 3: Distortion Through Time

Applies Corruption Through Time. Corruption Through Time increases all damage you do by 20% for 10 seconds. Doesn’t stack.       

Type: Physical/Magical       
Mana Cost: 20       
Cooldown: 6 seconds

Rank 4 Passive: SandskinDodge chance increased by 10%
Rank 4 Passive: Cosmic Energy Critical strike chance, Hit chance, and Haste increased by 7%

Rank 5: Temporal Collapse

Deals damage to your target based on the damage you've recently dealt while under the effects of Temporal Rift (in the past 10 seconds).  Consumes Temporal Rift stacks.       

Type: Magical       
Mana Cost: 35       
Cooldown: 20 seconds

Rank 10 Passive: Hands of FateStarting from Rank 1, you can equip Hourglasses and Timepieces as a consumable to enhance your other skills.

The Returning Hourglasses

Hourglass of Power
[Timeless Chronomancer Class]
For the next 2hrs your Hourglass Inversion skill now also increases most of your secondary stats a further 10% for 30 seconds. Doesn’t stack. This includes Damage Done, Haste, Critical Chance, Critical Damage, Hit Chance, Dodge Chance and Damage Reduction.

Note: This one is as straightforward as you can get. It’s a broad buff on everything you want. It doesn’t complicate things or add strategy. You just smash it and go. 

Hourglass of Paradise 
[Timeless Chronomancer Class]
For the next 2hrs, your Corruption Through Time skill now also toggles between several new buffs. You get a mana and heal over time, a reduction in damage taken by 40% and increased haste by 30%. Also, your crit chance and damage are reduced by 40%. These auras last 2hrs and toggle on and off each time you use Hourglass Inversion.

Note: Mix this with an offensive Timepiece to mitigate some of the Timepiece’s defensive weakness. Turn Paradise off right before your nuke for great sustain AND damage! 

Hourglass of Transience
[Timeless Chronomancer Class]
For the next 2hrs, Corruption Through Time makes you Transient for 10s. Applies a growing DoT to you. Using it again applies Ephemeral for 5s. Buffs dodge & damage by 50%. Using Hourglass Inversion while Transient gives you Incorporeal for 10s. Increases END & Haste by 50% & removes Transient & Ephemeral. While Transient, Sand Rift applies Flow. Increases enemy damage taken by 8% for 5s, stacks to 3. While Stable, it instead applies Ebb for 8s. Gives a growing DoT

Note: This Hourglass lives up to its namesake- your life is quite temporary and chaotic. But, balance your resources, and you'll find it paying off handsomely.

Get Ephemeral and you'll be dishing out huge damage while being nearly invincible- but your stay will be quite temporary.

Stabilize yourself out and you'll act faster and gain health- but you'll lose your Temporal Rift stacks.

Try to strike a balance alternating between these two skills, and you'll be able to extract the item's full power- but don't get too greedy!

The Underworld Chronomancer Timepieces

Timepiece of Madness 
[Underworld Chronomancer Class]
For the next 30 seconds, Timeless Strike applies Mad, increasing your outgoing damage by 5% for 3 seconds, stacks to 5. Upon reaching 5 stacks of Mad your next Timeless Strike consumes them and you become Eternal, increasing your Critical Strike Chance by 80% and reducing your outgoing damage by 30% for 2 seconds. Your Distortion Through Time Skill also applies Potential, increasing your Hit Chance by 20% for 20 seconds. Cooldown: 12 seconds

Note: A simple Timepiece that rewards you for consecutively hitting your opponent to ramp up your damage. As soon as you have Eternal, your chances of seeing those big orange numbers appear on Temporal Collapse are almost guaranteed. On top of that, Distortion Through Time now grants increased hit chance, allowing this to be more successful.

Timepiece of Inevitability
[Underworld Chronomancer Class]
For the next 10 seconds, Distortion Through Time also applies Inevitable Corruption, increasing your outgoing damage and Haste by 12% for 20 seconds. Using the Timepiece of Inevitability while Inevitable Corruption is active applies Snap to your opponent, dealing significant damage to them after a short delay. Cooldown: 20 seconds

Note: Another straightforward option, this Timepiece focuses on seamlessly adding extra damage so long as you can keep it refreshed often. In between your decimation-inducing finger-snaps, you get to enjoy a notable buff to both your outgoing damage and your haste, boosting the rest of your skills. This all culminates in an inevitable nuke from Temporal Collapse.

Timepiece of Pestilence 
[Underworld Chronomancer Class]
For the next 10 seconds, Distortion Through Time also applies Infectious Air, increasing the amount of damage the enemy takes by 20% for 10 seconds, stacking to 3 but is consumed by Temporal Collapse. As you recover from the contaminating air, your incoming damage is increased by 100% for 10 seconds. Also applies a light DoT and Decay to your target for 10 seconds, preventing them from healing. Cooldown: 10 seconds

Note: Lastly a Timepiece that makes you and others gain damage exponentially through lowering your enemy’s defenses until you tear them down with your utter prowess. This Timepiece requires a bit of timing alone however benefits greatly when given haste buffs allowing you to stack your Infectious Air aura with ease. Make your enemy rot and make the world of Lore witness the true power of The Undead Legion!

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 Northern Wanderers pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 2,000 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Northern Wanderer Armor
  • Fallen Wanderer Armor

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as the monthly upgrade bonus? 

Monthly upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages. 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 December, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in 2019, or 2020, or 2021, etc.

If this isn't the monthly upgrade bonus, what IS the bonus in December?

The next upgrade bonus will be available from December 7th - January 4th, and are the golden and platinum color-custom Northern Royalty armors. 

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 November 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.

Testing New Map/Monster Mechanic

Reens the Alchemist loves trying new combinations in her lab... but she also likes updating and testing out new ways to make building releases better. This week, she's coded up a new monster pad, so that (when she uses it) the monster you see depends on what part of the story/quest you're at.

This special pad won't always be used, but when we do, it will make things like creating wars and special story events (like the August Battle Concert) much more enjoyable, since you won't need to be separated from your friends as you progress through the event.

If you like this, great! Let us know on Twitter. If you don't, we want to know that, too! Reens' Twitter, Alina's Twitter

Harvest Fest Returns: Are You Hungry for Adventure?!

Every year, the Harvest Fest is a time to relax and celebrate another year of prosperity with your loved ones. A time to forget about the horrors of Mogloween and look forward to another happy Frostval in the coming weeks as you digest the giant feast that Oishii the Troll Chef has prepared for you.

Sample the tastiest battles AQW has to offer when you /join Feast, and don't miss adventures in:

  • Harvest - Help Oishii, the Craziest Chef around!
  • Turdraken - Take on the Turdraken for a deadly AND delicious battle!
  • Float - Help Scott the Pilgrim save the Harvest Parade!
  • FoulFarm - Something's foul in the Farmlands! 

See all the Harvest events in our Lorepedia Guide!

Memet's Birthday Harvest

Celebrate Memet's Birthday with a Nightmarish New Adventure!

As we begin out three-part 2019 Harvest Fest event, Memet, the Nightmare Moglin, is back with a deliciously destructive new event for you. She needs your help to perfect her formula before the Harvest Day festival so everyone can experience her tasty, lab-grown meat-kibble. But ask yourself... is that REALLY something you want to eat? REALLY?!

As the good Dr. Ian Malcolm said in the original Jurassic Park... "Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should." 

  • Help her use the cutting-edge (literally!) DNA editing MOGLN technology to create better food
  • Slay monsters to bring back meat for her machine(ations)
  • Test the food you produce on willing (and hungry) creatures
  • Enter... Memet's Meat Lab!

MMMMMMmeaty rewards

Battle the monsters and boss in this weekend's event to unlock all-new reward items, including:

  • Memeat Formal Wear armor set (you'll go gaga... or gaGAG over it!)
  • Meatlab Worker armor set
  • Meat Nubbin pet + morph helm
  • Memeat + AdipOHNOES pets
  • And more!

Plus, find the Memet Baby DragonRider pet available in her Artist Alley Shop (/join artistalley)!

Who is Memet?

Memet the Nightmare Moglin* is the staff persona for Memet, AQWorlds' lead writer. She is the one who writes and designs the weekly releases you battle through. She is a huge fan of dark, offbeat, Lovecraftian/Geiger style art and fantasy... which is why she's a nightmare creature.... and she is leveling up in real life. She’s crafted a nutritious (and terrifying) new event for you this week to battle through while she takes all next week off to relax and take on her own challenge -- NaNoWriMo. Wish her luck or happy birthday on Twitter!

Artist Alley Showcase: 2019 Edition

You cannot make a game without art! And some of the most talented artists I have ever met make (or have made) gear for you in AdventureQuest Worlds. We wanted to recognize their talent by giving each of them a space in-game to craft gear that they felt most showed who they are as artists. So /artistalley was born! The shops in our Featured Artist Alley contain gear by individual AQW team and community artists.* 

This weekend, /join artistalley to meet them and see all of the items they've crafted escpecially for you! We found Lae, Darkon, Kotaru, Dage the Evil, J6, Ghost, and many of our other artists when they began playing our games, just like you and all of the artists featured this weekend.

This year's artist alley update features:

  • Lae
  • Tyronius
  • Kotaro
  • Bido
  • Ferozakh
  • PP2
  • Hikari

And if you're new to Artist Alley, don't miss the shops by our other artists:

  • Aegis, Aranx, and Arklen
  • Blade, Dage, and Diozz
  • Ghost, Hizu, J6, and Jemini
  • Memet, Mido, and Nulgath
  • Roroth, Solrac, and Veneeria
  • Vokun and Zoshi

Harvest Fest Returns: Are You Hungry for Adventure?!

Every year, the Harvest Fest is a time to relax and celebrate another year of prosperity with your loved ones. A time to forget about the horrors of Mogloween and look forward to another happy Frostval in the coming weeks as you digest the giant feast that Oishii the Troll Chef has prepared for you.

Sample the tastiest battles AQW has to offer when you /join Feast, and don't miss adventures in:

  • Harvest - Help Oishii, the Craziest Chef around!
  • Turdraken - Take on the Turdraken for a deadly AND delicious battle!
  • Float - Help Scott the Pilgrim save the Harvest Parade!
  • FoulFarm - Something's foul in the Farmlands! 

See all the Harvest events in our Lorepedia Guide!
