Darkon's Birthday Shop + Quests

Happy Belated Birthday, Darkon!

Darkon is a mysterious artifact collector who is willing to sell some of his collection... to make room for more "valuable" things. (In real life, HE is one of our most valuable artists, working primarily on AQ3D, but also on AQWorlds when we can steal him away for a week!)

Find him when you /join garden and check out what he's made for you!

Darkon's Rare Animated, Boosted Weapons

To help you bring the power AND pain, Darkon crafted a series of incredibly rare, powerful weapons. Find them in the Featured Gear Shop for a limited time. Each comes with a damage boost AND a chance to call down a rain of fiery comets.

Darkon's Debris 6: 1,500 AC
Boost: 12% damage to all, 
1.5% chance for the comet animation to appear

Darkon's Debris 8: 2,000 AC
Boost: 15% damage to all, 
2% chance for the comet animation to appear

Darkon's Debris 11: 1,200 AC
Boost: 10% damage to all, 
1.2% chance for the comet animation to appear

The Darkon's Debris 6 and 11 are available in single and dual wield forms. Darkon's Debris 6 and 8 are also available as back items for 500 AdventureCoins each!

Darkon's Debris

This weekend, /join garden and talk to Darkon to begin his quests for THREE new armors and a couple helms. They are pretty wicked but... if you want them, you're going to have to WORK to get'em. Darkon's garden will expand later this year with even more quests, rewards, and areas to explore.

So every year, we celebrate Yokai New Year in Akiba. This year is the Year of the Rat (and the colors green and blue) in the Yokai Calendar and Akiba’s new year celebration is getting disrupted by… SURPRISE!!!... an infestation of rodents.

Log in this weekend and help Empress Miko and Bronwin the Pied Piper drive these vermin OUT of Akiba! But be careful -- music may soothe the savage beast... or make it even ANGRIER!

Artist Alley Showcase: 2020 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.

Nulgath's Birthday Returns

New Birthday Rares, Farming Rewards, and a new Story!

Nulgath the ArchFiend, lord of the OverSoul, has gathered around him many followers, creatures, and allies over the centuries. This weekend, as we celebrate Nulgath’s birthday once more, log in and battle to uncover more information about one of his mysteriously silently minions, the sentient Rock Beast known only as… Crag.

Talk to Bamboozle in /cragglerock to begin your quest. Collect special gems for his best boulder bud to earn the special gear that only a powered-up Crag can create.

Complete Bamboozle's quests to reawaken (or at least... partially /heal) Crag to collect stones for his merge shop and to rank up the new CraggleRock faction.

And if you're a true member of Nulgath's Nation, you'll want to find Lae in the /tercessuinotlim zone! He's got a bounty of new gear for you... IF you can pay his price. All crafted by Yo Lae for members of Nulgath's Nation to celebrate the ArchFiend's birthday!

Nulgath's Seasonal Birthday Shop Returns

Last year, in honor of the Flame Dragon Invasion, we brought 1Nulgath's Void Rebirth and Void Awakening sets from OverSoul into AQWorlds. These sets will return every year for his birthday, as our way of helping all his fans celebrate!

Nulgath's seasonal Birthday Shop features:

  • Void Rebirth armor set
  • Void Awakening armor set
  • Shielded variants of both armors
  • Nulgath's Bounty Hunter Drone Pet (with two quests)
  • Nulgath's Birthday Gift Pet (with one quest)

Next week, even more gear will be added to celebrate Nulgath's birthday, including the Void Jolly Roger set, the OverSoul Paladin, the Void Cowboy, and more!

Not sure who Nulgath is? Read on!

Nulgath the ArchFiend is the in-game persona for Nulgath-the-team-member, one of AQWorlds' original artists. Though he no longer works regularly for Artix Entertainment, his art style (prevalent in early AQW and featured in Oversoul) and the character itself remain hugely popular with many of our long-time heroes. To recognize their dedication and enjoyment, we hold an event in-game each year to celebrate the character and give them a hefty dose of the gear they love.

Honorable Hero 2020 moved to next week

It has been a CRAZY week! Reens (the dev in charge of weekly releases, item set-up, and testing) set up over 150 items sent in by our artists, updated 11 in-game maps, and set-up 24 quests... Her gift to Nulgath's Nation and the ArchFiend himself is a mighty one. Now, all that's left is for you to enjoy it!

But because of just how huge this week was, to keep the team sane, we've shifted the Honorable Hero 2019 awards to next week.

A New Year... and a New Decade Await!

It is December 31, 2019. We are about to begin a new year, a new decade, and a new series of EPIC adventures! But before we do, we need to give one last battle-cry for the bosses and events of 2019. Tonight, log in as our New Year's Eve maps and holiday seasonal items return and we extend our DOUBLE holiday server boost. Plus, at midnight as our January seasonal set becomes available once more. Then join us this Friday and take on our NEW New Year's Boss... the Chrono-Phoenix!

We hope you're having a fantastic holiday with your family and friends! Thank you for battling alongside us throughout 2019,and for supporting us with through purchasing Memberships and AdventureCoins! We've got plans for an amazing, crazy, and AWESOME 2020, and I can't wait to battle alongside you all as we build it together!

Tonight, /join newyear to replay all our holiday events and -- if you're impatient for 2020 to get here (like I am) take out your rage on the 2019 Ball monster. Head North from the Enter area and defeat it for a chance to get the pieces of the Glacial Knight armor set.

Return on Friday, January 3rd for all our 2020 rare items, our new upgrade bonus pack, and a holiday gift of 500 free AdventureCoins!

2019: The Chrono Phoenix Rises

The Chrono-Phoenix is a part-organic, part-mechanical creature created to track the cyclical death and re-birth of the year. But its gears are going haywire, and if you don't help Lucca the Chronomancer fix it, 2020 might NEVER arrive!

 

2018: A Chilling Tale

A new year dawns for the Yetis of EverFrost Valley, and a new generation of their warriors is ready to undergo an ancient rite to welcome the new year. You are the first human ever invited to join in the ritual slaying of the ice spirit Chillbite, Guardian of the Valley. On December 29th, celebrate the new year with your new tribe… if you survive!

2017: Archive of Time

Corruption will result in alteration of existing persons, places, and things in Lore. Correction required before countdown expires or changes will become per-pe- *static* SIGNAL LOST.

2016: Future of Fear

2016 is starting off with a bang.. and blasts… and an attack on Northpointe by the Queen of Monsters’ new Captain, Goregrim! The forces of Good, Evil, and Chaos will need to come together, or Northpointe WILL fall!

2015: A Monstrous Future

With the defeat of the Chanpion of Chaos last summer, the Queen of Monsters has been released from her prison... and she is ready to show our world how little we REALLY know about the nature of monsters! Tonight's release continues the Rise of the WorldBreaker trilogy in the /Northstar map.

Tonight: Battle to reach Karok the Fallen, but FIRST you'll need to face don a mysterious new monster... one HE did not create, but who has been commanded to follow him. Coming FRIDAY, you'll be able to face Karok the Fallen himself! (And have a VERY small chance to get the DarkIce version of his mage armor!)

If we don't want Karok's horde of monsters to join forces with the QUEEN of monsters, it's time to bare our blades and BATTLE ON... or the future will be MONSTROUS!

Old and New Gear for the New Year!

Talk to Quibble Coinbiter in Battleon to get The Fallen Mage Armor with a 15% Class Points bonus! You can also talk to Lim in the NewYear map to access all the returning seasonal rares PLUS find the 2015 New Year's Ball house item in the New Year house shop!

2014: Year of the Horse!

For the 2014 New Year's release, we wanted to take some inspiration from the Chinese zodiac. 2014 is the year of the horse, so naturally this is what we've come up with...

 

In Norse mythology, Hrimfaxi and Skinfaxi are the steeds of Night and Day, carrying the chariots of the sun and moon across the sky. Their equivalents in Lore are Frostmane and Embermane, and Ulfgar (remember him?) is worried that something is wrong with them. Embermane, the Steed of Day, has gone missing and her brother Frostmane is keeping the land in perpetual darkness. It's up to you to find her so she can bring back the sun - and bring in the new year.

So then, who's that nightmare steed, you ask? Is he what's keeping Embermane from returning to the sky? /Join frostmane to find out!

2013: A New Dawn for a New Year!

Save the sun, Hero, or tomorrow will never come! When a Werepyre petitions the Nocturan Creed, guardians of the night, to ensure he will never be harmed by the light again, you will need to work with the Lumina Votari to protect the sun and save the world! Journey across Lore to ensure that a new dawn - and a New Year - will begin!

2012: Time for Chaos

2012 was the Year of Chaos, and we started the year off with a BANG! Literally! But tonight, you'll go BACK in time to meet Professor Iadoa (Professor Yana, anyone?), a famous Chronomancer who has been missing for decades. He should have stayed gone, though, because now that he's back... it's time for Chaos!


The New Year's ball frozen in place. All clocks have stopped.

2011: The Chaos Continued

Lim has returned to the frozen north to help is close out 2010 with a BANG! Literally.

Well, that's what he INTENDED but once again he can't get his science all in one bucket and he needs your help to stop the ever hungry Icemaster Yeti from munching on this gizmos and doo-dads.

We hope you guys have all had a great holiday. We all took a little time out of insane production schedule to spend some time with our friends and travel hoe to see family, but we are SO READY to get moving on all our plans for 2015! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR! (Almost.)

New Year, New Year!

On Monday, December 31st, we'll release our 2019 New Year's shop, with the 2019 weapons and a host of new wintery gear, PLUS Vesper's pink, purple, and prismatic birthday shop!

While we do have even more plans for the Wheel of Doom and the IoDA tokens, those are a subject for another day.  (hint*hint*teaser)

* But since they are removed now with the placements of your prizes, you can get as many of them as you have Treasure Potions for.  You just have to redeem them one by one.

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

NorthlandsMonkClassSkills

'Tis the Season

This year we celebrate the time of giving and getting together with the seasonal Northlands Monk Class! Northlands Monks embody the holiday spirit with its arsenal of presents, harsh winter winds, and the ability to deliver a devastating attack upon its foes when fighting alongside allies.

How to Unlock the Class

There are four ways to obtain the Northlands Monk Class:

  1. Talk to Quibble Coinbiter in Battleon to find his shop. Immediately unlock the class for 2,000 AdventureCoins, or buy individual pieces of the Lord of Order set.
  2. Talk to Quibble Coinbiter in Battleon to find the Holiday collection chest for 10,000 AdventureCoins. Immediately unlock 75+ event items and rares, plus the Class and armor set
  3. Battle the Frozensoul Queen (level 50) in /frozensoul
  4. Battle the Challenge Frozensoul Queen (level 100) in /frozensoul (higher drop rate)

Mana Regeneration

Northlands Monks gain mana when they strike an enemy in combat (more effective on crits) or are struck by an enemy in combat. They also regenerate mana with each auto attack.

Abilities:

Present
Max Targets: 1 enemy
Throw a magical present at your enemy and unwrap another for yourself. Applies a small, medium, or large DoT to one enemy and a small, medium, or large HoT to you. Each effect lasts 4 seconds.
Type: Magical
MP: 10
Cooldown 6 seconds

Winter Wind
Max Targets: 1 enemy
Blast your opponent with a gust of cold air, lowering their Haste by 15% and increasing their incoming damage by 15% for 10 seconds.
Type: Magical
Mana Cost: 15
Cooldown: 8 seconds

Northland Lights
Use the starlight from the Northlands to guide the paths of your allies, increasing the Hit Chance, Haste, and outgoing damage for yourself and up to 5 allies by 10% for 10 seconds. Every ally buffed by this skill gives you one stack of Frostval Spirit, which increases your outgoing damage by 5% per stack for 6 seconds.
Note: Additional teammates are required in order to utilize the full power of Frostval Spirit.
Max Targets: 6 players
Type: Magical
Mana Cost: 15
Cooldown: 12 seconds

Holiday Spirit Bomb
Channel the spirit of Frostval into a ball of magical energy and launch it at your opponent, dealing huge damage. Your allies give you strength-- damage increases with stacks of Frostval Spirit.
Max Targets: 1 enemy
Type: Magical
MP: 20
Cooldown: 14 seconds

Passives:
Fortitude: Decreases incoming damage by 10%
Peacebringer: Increases Heal over Time and Damage over Time strength by 10%
Festive Fury: Increases outgoing damage, Critical Strike Chance, and Critical Strike Damage by 8%

Class Design and Use

As a class meant to be easily obtainable by heroes of all levels, Northlands Monk is a moderately powerful class with skills that are easy to understand and optimally use. Present’s Heal over Time gives Northlands Monk longevity while its Damage over Time whittles down enemy health-- this class doesn’t have significant damage mitigation, so Present’s heal will determine which monsters you can solo. Winter Wind deals moderate damage and increases enemy incoming damage, which compounds with the damage increasing effects of Northland Lights.

Northland Lights gives Northlands Monk utility in group settings-- not only does it buff the stats of party members, but it also increases your own maximum damage output by applying one stack of Frostval Spirit for every ally you buff (including yourself). In order to best use Northlands Monk, you should keep stacks of Frostval Spirit up as much as possible-- not only does it increase your outgoing damage by 5% per stack, each stack also directly increases the damage you deal with Holiday Spirit Bomb.

January Seasonal Set: ArchFiend OverLord

Available every year from January 1st - 31st

January is a month of new beginnings and birthdays in AQWorlds! To help ALL our heroes celebrate the new year and Nulgath's birthday, this month's seasonal set features the ArchFiend OverLord. 

January Set: ArchFiend OverLord

Starting this Tuesday at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock the ArchFiend OverLord armor and all its 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 5,400 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Northern Wanderers pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 3,400 ACs).

The set includes:

  • ArchFiend OverLord Armor
  • 5 helms 
  • 7 capes
  • 7 weapons
  • character page badge

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 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 January, 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 January?

The next upgrade bonus will be available starting January 3rd, and contains the BloodVoid and Vampiric Knights of Nulgath set.

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 January 31st.

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

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.
