Level Cap Increases to 90 + IceStorm Arena

SLAY Bells are ringing this weekend!

Our Frostval celebration continues this Friday at www.AQ.com with a bounty of new gear, an all-new battle arena, and a level-cap increase to 90! Heroes of all levels and class type are invited to fight through the ranks of the IceStorm Raiders for honor, glory, and prizes. Take on this weekend’s level 100 boss -- Warlord Icewing -- with a group of friends, or try to fight him solo if you're a high-enough level!

This weekend:

  • Level cap increases to 90
  • Higher-level enhancements (including Awe Enhancements) added*  
  • IceStorm Arena (with monsters level 5-100)
  • Double XP boost **
  • Quibble’s Frostval Rares + Frostval 2018 Collection Chest

The Level Cap Increases to 90!

For all you heroes asking us when the level cap will increase... today is the day! It's only been about 1.5 years since the last multi-level cap raise, so it we're adding 5 more levels, taking the cap from level 85 to 90! (Current plans for a level cap increase schedule: 95 in 2019 and 100 in 2020.)

To celebrate, we've added a DOUBLE XP server boost. Next week, we'll add Double Gold, Rep, and Class points as we releaes the Frostval Barbarian Class. 

  • Level 85 - 90 Enhancements: level 50+ enhancement shops in your game menu
  • Awe Enhancements: in the Awe Enhancements shops in /museum

Also, this week: we've added in functionality from the PTR servers so that as long as you fight monsters that have more than 1 HP, you'll always get at least the minimum level of class points, no matter what level the monster is. (Before, if you fought monsters that were too low a level, you would not get any CP.)

Enter the IceStorm Arena

Warriors, Rogues, and Wizards of all levels and ranks are invited to fight through the ranks of the IceStorm Raiders for honor, glory, and new gear! Battle icy opponents from level 5 to 100 as you earn EXP and gold. High-level heroes can blast their way to the end of the arena to take on the level 100 Warlord IceWing boss.

Icy Barbarian Gear

The dev team's goal is to have the IceStorm arena serve as the best level farming area in-game - with the smoothest, most balanced progression, and high-level monsters for our more experienced heroes.

Merge Shop Rewards include:

  • Icy Barbarian armor + accessories
  • Icy Infernal armor + accessories

Plus, take on Warlord IceWing for a chance to get the Boreal Bardiche and Cavalier Claymore! 


Icy Infernal Gear

Who are the IceStorm Raiders?

After Tyndarius’ mortifying defeat in the Etherstorm Isles, and his rejection by the Queen of Monsters, the islands were abandoned… until King Rimescar and his army moved in to annex the lands. Ice and snow now blanket an area once known for its volcanic activity. To honor the winter holidays, he’s thrown open the arena to Lore’s most well-known and skilled hero… YOU!

Farming and Rebalancing

In the interest of updating some unbalanced areas and quests in the game, we've adjusted some monster levels and quest rewards.

Changes include:

  • Darkness monster level in the Bloodmoon Arena lowered to 25*
  • Alchemy quests XP lowered from 100 to 0
  • Dys-Geni-c Chaorruption? quest now rewards 5,000 gold and XP

And quest reward increases:

  • Willpower Extraction quest now rewards 10,000 XP
  • Demanding Items of Nulgath quest now rewards 10,000 XP
  • The Poisonous / Refreshing Deal quests now reward 10,000 gold and XP
  • GRUMBLE, GRUMBLE... quest now rewards 5,000 XP
  • Crag's Thirst quest now rewards 5,000 gold and XP
  • Retrieve Void Auras quest now rewards 10,000 gold and XP
  • Unstable Essences quest now rewards 10,000 gold and XP
  • Shadow Essences quest now rewards 10,000 gold and XP

* The Nothing monsters in the member-only /nightmare remain level 99.

Level Cap Increases to 90 + IceStorm Arena

SLAY Bells are ringing this weekend!

Our Frostval celebration continues this Friday at www.AQ.com with a bounty of new gear, an all-new battle arena, and a level-cap increase to 90! Heroes of all levels and class type are invited to fight through the ranks of the IceStorm Raiders for honor, glory, and prizes. Take on this weekend’s level 100 boss -- Warlord Icewing -- with a group of friends, or try to fight him solo if you're a high-enough level!

This weekend:

  • Level cap increases to 90

  • Higher-level enhancements (including Awe Enhancements) added*  

  • IceStorm Arena (with monsters level 5-100)

  • Double XP boost **

  • Quibble’s Frostval Rares + Frostval 2018 Collection Chest

Also, this week: we're adding in functionality from the PTR servers so that as long as you fight monsters that have more than 1 HP, you'll always get at least the minimum level of class points, no matter what level the monster is. (Before, if you fought monsters that were too low a level, you would not get any CP.)

WHY NO PICTURES?

I know.. the Design Notes look so EMPTY! I have been sick since Monday night, and am just now getting back onto a computer. In place of the normal pics, I've crafted a clean, simple image as a placeholder. 

We'll have many impressive, epic images in tomorrow's Design Notes, along with full details of Quibble's Shop, the Frostval 2018 collection chest, what goes rare, what won't, why the IceStorm Raiders have opened this new arena... and more (like what to expect from next week's Limited Quantity sets).

* Like the Spitfire Enhancements, the Darkness Enhancements have a limited level range, and will not receive updates this weekend.

** A double XP boost starts this weekend. Next weekend, in honor of Frostval, we'll have a Double XP, Gold, Rep and Class Points boost!

The Queen of Monsters is...

Missing? Living Among Us? DEAD?!

The Queen of Monsters has long been rumored to reside in an unapproachable Tower near the islands of Drakonus.

Though her monsters still attack the land, the assaults come less frequently now. Ruomrs are beginning to spread. They ask -- where is the Queen?

The answers are troubling. Some say she walks among us as a shapeshifter.* Some say she resides with Drakath, continuing to use him as a puppet. Some say she is dead. Others say that - like the spiders she loves - she is lying in wait. Silent. Preparing.

The question on everyone's mind is... what will the Queen do next? And the one person who MIGHT be able to tell us -- Drakath -- refuses to say. The LoreMasters and Chronomancers will meet soon to discuss this troubling situation.

Coming in 2019... the finale of the Queen of Monsters Saga!

* Robina = Queen of Monsters!

Tonight: Frozen Lair Boss Challenge

The Ultimate Lich King needs your help

This weekend, log in and journey deep into the frozen heart of the northlands. The Ultimate Lich King's newest minion - the Lich Lord - awaits, but before he can join the ranks of the Undead Legion, he needs to prove himself in battle. Many have fallen to his dark magic already. Will YOU survive? 
  • All Players: Battle the Lich Lord to earn the pieces of his armor set
  • High-Level Challenge: face off against the level 85 Legion Lich Lord 
  • Undead Legion exclusive: craft pieces of the Legion Lich Lord's set with Legion Tokens

These sets were crafted by Aranx, and for the Legion exclusive variant, he tried something pretty unique in AQWorlds - a visible back-arm permanently holding a weapon.

  • The Legion Lich Lord armor can be purchased in the Lich King's Bounty merge shop for Legion Tokens. 
  • Battle the level 85 boss to get his drop and get the Legion Lich Lord armor to unlock the Legion Lich Lord's Staff armor.

J6 and Cinazool's Real Life Holiday Release

Two weeks ago, J6 and his incredibly kind, compassionate, and lovely wife, Cinazool, had a baby! J6 has been taking time off to bond with his new 2.0. He'd planned a funny release to explain his absence but -- like with everything in game development and babies -- sometimes life throws you a curveball. He and his family are doing well; we're all incredibly excited and happy for him, and cannot wait for J6, Cinazool, and little Vlad* to come visit the Secret Underground Lab.
(So if you see a lot of background art being creatively recycled this week and for the next several, now you know why. Family comes first at Artix Entertainment, and we want him to get to enjoy as much time with his son as possible before picking up his stylus and powering his monitor back up.)
* Not his real name. His real name is even cooler. But classified.

Also coming this week...

Wheel of Doom update: Find an all-new color custom Cyber Samurai set from Crulon in the Wheel of Doom and Doom merge shop!

The Galactic OmniBlade series -- which lets you get one blade per year -- is back! Get the Galactic OmniBlade 1.0 from the Black Friday shop, then talk to Bido in /blackfridaywar to unlock his quest for the Galactic OmniBlade 2.0. Next year, you'll be able to get the next blade in the series! 

Cyber Void Paladin set: Unlock the entire Cyber Void Paladin set for free if you have the Void Paladin armor, helm, katana cape, katana, and Void Light of Destiny. This 0 AC set will be in-game permanently as a bonus for all you heroes who've farmed for the gear. 

Infernal Dark Companion Cape: The fix to Nakana Rei's Black Friday cape goes live this weekend! The original version is being renamed to the Shadowed Dark Companion Cape. Both that and the fixed version (called the Infernal Dark Companion Cape) will be available from the Black Friday shop in your game menu.

If you have the original, all-black version you can keep it as-is, or change it in Vinara's Odds Shop in /battleontown to get the fixed version for free. 

Black Friday / Cyber Monday update: all our Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Harvest events leave Monday, December 10th.

Shadow SoulSeeker BattlePet update: this battlepet will not make it in-game in time for this year's Black Friday Shop. Apologies to those who saw the tweet about it and were looking forward to it. We will add it to the list for next year.

New Item Set: Cyber Samurai

Available in the Wheel of Doom and Merge shop!

The Wheel of Doom spins round and round... and this week, as we continue celebrating Cyber Monday, we've got an all-new, electrifying set for you Samurai fans out there -- Crulon's Cyber Samurai

New Gear from the Wheel of Doom!

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 Cyber Samurai set pieces will be available from the Wheel of Doom and from the Doom merge shop. The red parts of the set shown below are color customizable.

Pieces of the set include:

  • Cyber Samurai armor
  • Cyber Samurai Helm
  • Cyber Samurai Mask
  • Cyber Samurai Visor
  • Cyber Samurai Blade
  • Cyber Samurai Katana (single and dual wield)

All our Cyber Monday gear - including the seasonal Cyber Samurai set - leaves Monday, December 10th. This gear will return next year during our Harvest event.

Get your Free Spins

Everyone loves to get prizes... and that's why this month, 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, earlier this month, 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.

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

Unlocking the free member daily spins: You're in luck! If you have a membership, all you need to do is log in and spin. (Note: free spins do not stack or carry over. If you don't log in on a given day, you lose that day's free spin.)
Unlocking the free weekly spins: Back and better than ever! With the return of the Wheel of Doom, we've changed the free monthly spin to a free WEEKLY spin. To unlock it, you'll need to complete a quest that requires three Gears of Doom. You'll get one Gear a day, added straight to your inventory.

Important Points:
  • Log in on 3 different days during the same week to get all 3 gears.
  • You do not need to log in 3 days in a row. (Example: if you log in on Monday, Thursday, and Sunday, you can claim your free spin on Sunday.)
  • The gear quantity will reset every 7 days or when you turn in the free spin quest. (Example: if you turn in the free daily quest on Monday at 3 PM, you have until next Monday to collect your 3 Gears of Doom.)
  • Gears do not roll over from week to week.

Winter is coming (for many of you, it's already here!), and so are all our snow-covered, ice-laden, gift-bearing holiday events! To help ALL our heroes celebrate, this month's seasonal set features the Northern Wanderers - the Northern Wanderer and Fallen Wanderer armors.

December Set: The Northern Wanderer

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 4,000 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Northern Wanderers pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 2,000 ACs).

October: ChronoStriker
November: Harvest Hunters
December: Northern Wanderer
January - August: ??? - come back to see what we'll bring!

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.

Harvest Hunters Leave Friday

One Week Left to Unlock Our November Seasonal Set

November is when the Fall season REALLY hits in the United States. Pumpkin Spice everything is in stores, the leaves have fallen (or are starting to) and the temperatures around the underground lab finally drop below 70 degrees Fahrenheit. This is harvest time in the Northern Hemisphere, and Thanksgiving in the United States, Canada, China, Germany, Grenada, Japan, and Norfolk Island. To help ALL our heroes celebrate, this month's seasonal set features the Harvest Hunters - the HeroHunter and Lycan Stalker armors.

November Set: The Harvest Hunters

Starting this Thursday at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock the Hero Hunter or Lycan Stalker armors and all the Harvest Hunter 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 4,000 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Harvest Hunters pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 2,000 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Hero Hunter Armor
  • Lycan Stalker Armor
  • 3 helms 
  • 3 capes
  • 5 weapons
  • character page badge

Seasonal Set Details

Each month, we'll feature a new set, available only during that month every year. 

Seasonal Sets
September: Celestial Naval Commander
October: ChronoStriker
November: Harvest Hunters
December - August: ??? - come back to see what we'll bring!

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 November, 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 November?

The next upgrade bonus will be available from November 2nd - 30th, and are the Apocalyptic DragonLord 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.

Treasure Potion Glitch Fix 

The "missing treasure potions" banking bug has been fixed! We replaced missing potions earlier today. Treasure Potions can no longer be banked, to prevent this issue from re-occurring.
