Miscellaneous Monday Mix

A melange of info for you to know

Happy Monday, April 6th! The team has been going all out to keep our story releases flowing, and we've added daily gift updates as well since we know so many of you are unexpectedly off school for an extended period of time. With so much happening in the game and behind the scenes, we've got a few pieces of news to share.

Daily Login Gift Update

We know a lot of you have had unexpected schedule changes recently as your local communities respond to the COVID-19 outbreak. To help keep your spirits high in this time, we're making sure that when you log into AdventureQuest Worlds, you have even more to do. More rewards to hunt for, quests to complete, and battles to win. Originally, the 0 AC items were going to leave April 17th. Then we pushed that back to the end of April.

But after receiving many messages from our player community letting us know they're unable to log in due to local health/safety measures, we've extending the period that the items will drop. We will announce a revised leave date as situations around the world progress. We want everyone to stay safe, healthy, and #PlayApartTogether.

New ads on the game screen

Want to help the support AdventureQuest Worlds' game development, but don't have the ability to upgrade or buy AdventureCoins? Clicking on the play-now screen ads that you find even a little interesting helps the game stay alive and helps us continue to bring you new adventures and items week after week.

If you log in with a member account or are using the Artix Game Launcher, you will not see the ads by default.

Tier 2 Blademaster Class Update

We know so many of you are excited for the release of our newest class, the tier 2 Blademaster, Yami no Ronin. The farming quests and balance for the class are still in progress. We'll be able to give everyone a better idea for the release date later on this week.

And speaking of classes...

(Re) Introducing... Barber Class! (No Joke)

Hair today, gone tomorrow... and back again! Almost 12 years ago, we launched the Barber Class. It had a unique armor, but the same skills as Rogue Class. It was removed back in 2010 and ever since, we've gotten requests to 1) bring the class back and 2) give it unique skills.

We originally planned to launch the return of the new Barber Class last week, but needed to address several animation issues. As of tonight... those requests have become a reality... in a slightly different form! Find Barber Class in the Class Shop, as well as Bev's shop in Battleontown for 20,401 gold.

For you experienced heroes who still have the original Barber Class (now called Classic Barber), you'll keep your art and rogue-clone skills. Drop a few gold and you can try out the new class's unique skills, then decide which you like better.

If this is your first go-round the barber pole, then you're in luck! Check out the hair-raising skills and animations, enjoy the swanky bowtie on the armor, and cut your opponents down to size!

Class Notes

  • Find the new Barber Class in the Class shop or Bev's Barber Shop for 20,401 gold.
  • Suitable for new adventurers battling to become experienced heroes
  • Recommended Enhancement: Luck

New story release this Friday: Alliance of Evil, Part 2

Last month, we began a new three-part arc in our main story, Shadows of War, featuring the ShadowLord Malgor and his attemp to ally with the forces of EVIL. Dage was not deceived by Malgor's empty promises, and needed your help to defend his realm. This week, Malgor's focus turns to one of the other three main Evil factions... Nulgath the ArchFiend and his Nation of deadly warriors. Log in this Friday for a dark new adventure, wicked reward items, and a new armor set in the Featured Gear Shop in your game menu.

Shadows Of War: Evil Alliance Part 1

Quest to Defend Dage's Underworld from Malgor

After the ShadowLord Malgor’s plot to control the ley lines failed, he retreated. Or so we thought, until Dage the Evil received a message... and an offer of alliance. But Dage was not deceived by Malgor's empty promises, and now he needs your help to defend his realm. Because if Dage won't willingly add his Underworld minions to the ShadowFlame army, then Malgor intends to TAKE them.

This weekend:

  • /join darkally
  • Quest to battle Malgor's Shadow minions
  • Empower the members of Dage's Underworld
  • Forge new souls and punish defectors

Plus find...

  • Draconic Paragon and Prime gear set
  • Corrupted Draconic Paragon and Prime gear set
  • and the new SwordMaster class variants of the BladeMaster class series!

Alliance of Evil Gear

We've got four new armor sets for you to collect!

Draconic Paragon Plate: Undead Legion exclusive armor set! Create the pieces of this set using Undead Legion Tokens and Paragon Medals (available from Dage the Evil's Undead Legion Merge Shop

Prime Paragon Plate: Available from Dage the Evil's Birthday Shop (returning each year) and from the 2020 Birthday Collection Chest (only available in this year's chest)

Corrupt Draconic Paragon Plate: 
Complete this weekend's update in /darkally to unlock the story boss and farm for the Corrupt Draconic Paragon armor set!

Prime Corrupted Paragon Plate:
Limited Time only! Available from the Featured Gear Shop and from the 2020 Birthday Collection Chest 

The Story So Far...

The Queen of Monsters is dead, but Evil lives on... and the shadows she cast over our world continue to spread. A new overlord controls her castle, and if you aren't fighting FOR Malgor, the leader of the ShadowFlame Army, he wants to make sure you'll never fight again. His army has invaded our world, his minions seek to turn you over to him, and if you're going to stop him, you'll need two things, FAST: allies + power. 

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 several new allies to your party:

  • Varga, the Goddess of War
  • Teja, the Pirate Queen of the Southern Seas
  • Jinx, the dimension-hopping Kittarian Cat Burglar
  • Mahou, the Spirit Mage
And you've 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. 

Dage's Birthday Class Update, Part 1

The Undead Legion is made up of Lore's finest undead (and not-undead-yet) warriors. That is why we're bringing back some of your favorite Underworld class skills paired with new art!

Starting tonight, find the BladeMaster Class, BladeMaster Assassin Class, and Legion BladeMaster Assassin Class skills return as the SwordMaster Class series!

SwordMaster Class uses rebalanced and buffed BladeMaster Class skills.
SwordMaster Assassin Class uses rebalanced and buffed BladeMaster Assassin Class skills
Legion SwordMaster Assassin Class uses Legion BladeMaster Assassin Class skills

How to Unlock the new classes:

SwordMaster Class permanently available for AdventureCoins in the Class Shop or Undead Legion Shop, or for Legion Tokens in the Legion Merge Shop
SwordMaster Assassin Class seasonally available in Dage's Dark Birthday Shop
Legion SwordMaster Assassin seasonally available in Dage's Dark Birthday Token Merge Shop

If you have any of the original BladeMaster classes, you can unlock their SwordMaster variants for free from the Curio shop in Battleontown.

The Tier 2 Class intended to release for Dage's Birthday, the Yami no Ronin Class, will arrive next month. This Tier 2 class will only be available via farming. Keep an eye out for more details about how to obtain it soon.

Follow the AdventureQuest Worlds class team on Twitter for more updates, previews, and details about new class changes, buffs, and releases!

Encore! The Return of Breaking Benjamin

Encore! Encore! Encore!

This Battle Concert story event is free for everyone, all ages, any level. Team up with your friends and battle through time and space as the band Breaking Benjamin rocks out!

Defeat horrifying creatures in the Void and take down the PlaneShifter boss.

That unlocks the concert backstage area where you can meet the band and complete Bryce Platinum's quest for more reward gear than a crew of roadies can haul.

Come see the band Breaking Benjamin in AdventureQuest Worlds!

Encore of the Breaking Benjamin Battle Concert!

All the real life concerts everywhere were cancelled. We have had amazing battle concert story events here in AdventureQuest Worlds, and some incredible guest groups. 

So we talked to the band, and we're going to revive and extend our previous concert so everyone in the world can come party with us in game!

Battle for a chance to get wicked loot

The Breaking Benjamin concert is 100% free for everyone to enjoy, so it did not have a collection when released. Over half of the reward items released in the concert event were available for everyone as monster and quest drops... and they're back!

If you didn't get a chance to farm for them while the concert was live in February... now's your chance! Plus, coming next week, we'll add a selection of new drops to keep you rockin' all night long!

"But hey... I thought those items were never coming back!" The events in the Battle Concert series are normally limited time events. We feature a band, and then we remove the event and the rare items that come with it. SOME of the items return during each Battle Concert. Because of that, we have certain merge items that also return with each Battle Concert event. (That way, if someone only had time to farm 30 items, but needed 50 to make an armor, they could finish their farming during the next limited-time battle concert.)

The Dark Carnival Returns

Friday the 13th And Lucky Day Double Holiday!

It is March, the month of Evil, and the weekend after Friday the 13th! That means... the Dark Carnival returns for the Unlucky Day Fair. Better boost your real-life LUK stat this weekend, because you're going to need every four-leaf clover, horseshoe, and rabbits foot you've got! Aurelio Voltaire and Zazul are here to make sure you "win" all the prizes you deserve... including a few new Friday the 13th / Lucky day crossover items!

Both Zazul and Aurelio Voltaire have a quest that is ONLY available while the Dark Carnival is in town.

  • Zazul's Purgatorio Charade quest has a chance to reward: the Twisted Monkey Paw, Chibi Zazul House Item, Ringermaster Mort pet, and Silver Purgatorio Coin weapons
  • Aurelio Voltaire's Creepy Undead Monkey quest has a chance to award the Creepy Undead Monkey cape, pet,  morph helm, and Twisted Monkey Paw. 

But beware... these gifts may not be what they seem. Save your Twisted Monkey Paws; you'll be able to spend them in the Dark Carnival merge shop for even more gear! 

  • Zombie Leperchaun armor + helms
  • Toxic Painbow cape
  • Wilted 4-Leaf Clover staff
  • Unfortunate Ringmaster armor set

Dark Carnival Event Shop

You're in luck! The Dark Carnival has a whole new gear shop... just for you! Head to the Fair to find...

  • Undead Leperchaun Class (AC and member versions)
  • Corrupt Celtic Hunter weapons (2020 event rares)
  • Harlequin Warrior armor set  (2020 event rares)
  • Magical Dryad armor set 

Unlucky Leperchaun Class

It's so uncommon for Lucky Day and Friday the 13th to coincide (the next won't be until 2026!) that to celebrate, we've added an event-exclusive version of the Unlucky Leperchaun Class... the Undead Leperchaun. It has the same skills as the 2015 Unlucky Leperchaun, but new art. This class will only be available when Friday the 13th and Lucky Day converge. 

The Undead Leperchaun Class is a highly modified version of the Evolved Leprechaun Class, and can be obtained from the Dark Carnival event shop for 2,000 ACs OR for gold, if you're a Legend. Check out the original class skills write up for more details about how the class will play.

Step Right Up to Test Your Luck!

Do ya feel lucky, Hero? I hope so, because the sneevil barkers at the Unlucky Day Fair are calling to you. 

UnLucky Day Fair events:

  • Play minigames to collect Golden Tickets
  • Unlock the Evolved Leprechaun Class or the Undead Leperchaun Class
  • The Pot o' DOOM is here: battle it for new gear
  • Punt Zorbak is BACK! (only available during the Friday the 13th / Lucky Day crossover events)
  • Your favorite seasonal items and bosses return

You can access the Fair RIGHT NOW when you /join unluck, and then continue to taste the painbow in the /rainbow and /hedge maps!

Don't miss the many unlucky versions of the fair's minigames:

Save up the Golden Tickets you earn from the minigames to purchase gear from the Unlucky Day Shamrock Fair Merge Shop, and if you get a Lucky Hat or Lucky Top Hat from the Fair Token Shop, you'll earn double the number of Golden Tickets from any minigame you play!

Friday the 13th: Dage vs Shrade

The Month of Evil + the Unluckiest Day of the Year

Evil. Darkness. DOOM. And... Friday the 13th?! That's right. This weekend, we're celebrating the darkest month of the year with the unluckiest EVENT of the year in a double-holiday war... for POWER! Log in this weekend and head to Aurelio Voltaire's library for a story of fear and horror... of underworlds and lost souls... and creatures pulled straight from your nightmares. Of Dage the Evil vs SHRADE in the Splatter Realm!

The adventure begins as you battle through the Underworld to help Dage the Evil unlock the mystery of a Puzzle Box that promises to take him to a world even deeper and darker than the one he rules.. But to take control of it, he'll need to take out the creature guarding its gateway: SHRADE.

This weekend, /join puzzlebox to begin your cursed underworld adventure and...

  • Battle through Aurelio Voltaire's tale of terror
  • Fight through the Underworld to help Dage the Evil unlock the mystery of the Dark Enigma puzzlebox
  • Complete the story quests to begin the Dage vs Shrade WAR in the Splatter Realm
  • Raise the war meter to 50% to unlock a war chest with the Dark Enigma Keeper or Horrorfied Enigma Keeper sets
  • Raise the war meter to 100% to unlock the war boss
  • Rock out to Aurelio Voltaire's sweet songs of darkness
  • How lucky—you can play through all previous Friday the 13th events!

Once the war meter hits 100%, battle to collect the pieces of the 0 AC Legion Shrade armor set from the war boss!

Aurelio Voltaire Returns for Friday the 13th!

Friday the 13th and Aurelio Voltaire go together like Evil Armies of Undead and Horror Movies. So of course, this Friday our always-positive, family-friendly game team and community want to welcome him back for another musical event! 

Aurelio Voltaire is the maker of music, films, books, comics, toys and... mayhem. He has appeared in almost ALL of the AQWorlds Friday the 13th events... and has become a fan-favorite for our players (not to mention beloved by goths, trekkies, and music-lovers in general). 

This weekend, slay your enemies to the sound of music from his album “What are the Oddz?” but before you begin the adventure in /puzzlebox, take a moment to admire Aurelio Voltaire's sweet portrait of his candy-loving companion, Hargoyle, star of the Legend of Candy Claws book and super-cuddly plus toy. (Get yours from his online store here)

On behalf of the entire AdventureQuest Worlds team, we want to thank Aurelio Voltaire for being a part of this special event! 

Friday the 13th Event Rare Gear

Starting tonight and through Friday, April 3rd, you'll be able to find the spookiest, evillest Friday the 13th gear EVER in your game menu!

  • Spear and Sword weapons
  • Shadow of the Legion armor (with color-custom trim)

Your luck is in! Log in at battle through our Friday the 13th update this weekend  and get 2X gold, reputation, class points, and experience when you defeat monsters and complete quests.

War Events How-To Guide

Battle alongside your fellow heroes to defeat your enemies to defend the Splatter Realm... or conquer it! For many of you, this will be the FIRST war you've ever fought in, and you're in LUCK! (Even though it IS Friday the 13th...)

But if you're not sure how to fight in an AQWorlds war, then read on!

  • Choose a side: You can choose to battle for Dage the Evil or Shrade. 
  • War Meter:  Defeat your opponents to earn war tokens, then turn them in to increase the war meter. When the meter hits 100%, it unlocks the war boss.
  • War Tokens: There are two different kinds of tokens. Turning in 5 regular tokens to increases the meter by a regular amount. Turn in 3 mega tokens to increase the meter by DOUBLE the normal amount.
  • Goals: Raising the war meter unlocks special achievements - special shops, challenge fights, cutscenes, or the war boss (once the meter hits 100%).  Defeat the war boss to unlock the final story cutscene.

You and the rest of the heroes in Lore will all be fighting together to reach a common goal: victory! With every additional hero who battles in the war, you'll reach the 100% mark that much faster... and that means you'll unlock the rewards and storyline ending sooner, too!

Members of the Undead Legion will also be able to craft items for two new sets exclusive to Dage the Evil's most loyal followers. If you're not a member of the Undead Legion, never fear! You, too, can sell your soul to Dage the Evil and become a part of his immortal army.

* Last year, we added a series of Dark Caster-themed classes and armors. Like in AdventureQuest 3D, these items will return to Dage's birthday shop each year. But the Dark Caster collection chest pet (and the discount it gave)are rare and will not return.

Unlock the Bio-War Cultist Set

Available every year from April 1st - 30th

April is the month of WAR! The world of Lore is never peaceful for long... and the battles that lie ahead of you are only going to get more intense. Embrace your fate (and a future full of combat... literally*). This month's seasonal set will outfit you for the coming conflict: the Bio-War Cultist.

* The Goddess will be pleased. She favors her devoted Cultists.

April Set: Bio-War Cultist

Starting Monday, April 1st at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock the Bio-War Cultist and War Cultist armors and all their 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 pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 2,000 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Bio-War Cultist armor
  • War Cultist  armor
  • War Cultist Helms
  • Bio-War Cultist Helms
  • War Cultist Wings
  • Bio-War and War Cultist Blades
  • War Cultist Claws
  • an exclusive character page badge

** The character page badge will go live in the afternoon on Monday, April 1st.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as an upgrade bonus? 

Upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages; new bonus gear comes out roughly every month. 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 April, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in 2020, or 2021, or 2022, etc.

If this isn't a new upgrade bonus, what IS the next bonus?

You can see all the available upgrade bonuses on our upgrade site. The next bonus set will be available soon, so keep an eye on the Design Notes! 

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 April 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.
