Moglin Kickstarter is LIVE!

Help us make our dream of moglin plush a reality!

Greetings and salutations friend... we're about to do something crazy together. Want to join us?

You've had moglins at your side in our video games. Now, help us bring Moglins to the real world!


Moglins like Twilly, Zorbak, Twig, & Quibble are magical forest creatures born in our video game worlds. Back our Moglin Kickstarter to help them escape and join you in the real one.

Of course, each Moglin also comes with a code to unlock an in-game pet of itself in multiple Artix Entertainment video games.


Unlock the Master of Moglins CLASS in AQWorlds with the $120 Ultimate Moglin Collection. The Class art shown above is a KickStarter exclusive. (You will still be able to get the class by purchasing all 12 moglins from HeroMart after the KickStarter ends, but the art will be different.)

Oh! Our new Artix Games Launcher lets you play our games (with your moglins) without needing a browser or the Flash plugin.

Put a Moglin on your desk to cheer you on. They’ll keep you company while writing, drawing, coding, and gaming. Moglins love to watch your favorite shows with you...even when no one else will. You can keep the joy for yourself, or give a Moglin to someone you love.


Moglins are the ultimate sidekicks for real life adventurers like you. Help us bring them from the fantasy world into the real one!

Check out all of the Moglins on our Kickstarter Page...

2016 AE Calendar Coming!

We are building this years new Calendar! Thyton was painting at the lab into the wee hours of the night... so I took a picture of what he is working on with my cell phone. YUP! A repainting of the classic DragonFable login screen focing on the DoomKnight Sepulchure!

This year's calendar features paintings of favorite characters (Sepeulchure, Gravelyn, Galanoth, Artix), and never before seen NEW CHARACTERS that will be appearing next year in our games! Here is a preview of the cover.

Dage also contributed several of his personal works for this calendar... making it an incredible collector's piece. We really raised the bar on this one... it is best described as 12 limited edition prints combined into one epic 12 page, full size, painted calendar. Yes, like our previous calendars it will include in-game items. More on that coming soon.

The Artix Entertainment 2016 Calendar will go on sale at www.HeroMart.com at the end of this month.

 

QUESTION: Which of our previous calendars was your favorite? (Personally, I think the Dragons calendar was the best... but the AQWorlds one from a few years prior had so much character. I liked that the poster calendars were flippable, I still have them on my wall. But getting an epic change of scenery every month makes the flip calendars better in my opinion. After the year is over, I can cut out the picture parts and hang them like limited prints.)

NEW Print at Heromart: Chaos Queen Beleen

Embrace the Chaos with Nulgath's New Print

Make your way to HeroMart.com, our online, real-life merchandise store to find the new Chaos Queen Beleen Arti Print! Inspired by Beleen, marketing writer for Artix Entertainment, and created by Nulgath, master artist, this 8.5x11" limited edition print will bring chaos and craziness to your room, dorm, office, or castle!

Nulgath the lead designer for Oversoul and long time artist for AdventureQuest Worlds brings his unique art to HeroMart. We appreciate him taking the time between waging wars and gathering minions to create this awesome art piece and the in-game Items!

The Chaos Queen Beleen print comes with the exclusive Chaos Beleen armor! The Locks of Love and Spikes of Love helms pictured above will be available both with the HeroMart print and from this week's story release shop.

Next Friday in AQWorlds: All Hail Chaos Queen Beleen!

Beleen, Artix Entertainment's bubbliest, most positively-pink developer has discovered the sad, abandoned village of Drearia and vows to bring it back to life. But after accidentally stumbling Nulgath the ArchFiend, lord of the Oversoul and former ruler of the Underworld, her powers of randomness and cheer... mutate in the STRANGEST way possible!

Become a Legion Paladin

Legion Paladin Class Skills Breakdown

Legion Paladins are the dishonest and evil protectors of… DAGE and DAGENESS! Heh, but really... You used to be a Paladin and now you’re the undead minion of a seemingly invincible armored lich. Use your skill in both light and darkness to strike down all who oppose.. Whatever you believe you’re fighting for.

How to Unlock Legion Paladin Class

When you buy a Legion Armor T-shirt or Paladin Armor T-shirt from Heromart.com, each comes with an awesome weapon and half of the "Legion Paladin" class. Combine both halves to create the full class in AdventureQuest Worlds! Themed after the shirts... we merged Artix's Paladin armor and Dage's Paragon armor together into a horrifying and powerful new class. 

  • Get the Legion Light of Destiny when you buy the Legion Armor T-Shirt
  • Get the Purified Caladbolg Sword when you buy the Paladin Armor T-Shirt
  • Get the Legion Paladin CLASS when you buy both T-shirts

Legion Paladin Class Skills

Auto Attack: Pretty basic. 2 second cooldown.
You need to be able to swing around your weapon somehow.

Extirpate: 15 Mana, 5 second cooldown

Increases damage taken by 10% while increasing damage done by 25% for 6 seconds.

Mending Gloom: 30 Mana, 8 second cooldown

Heals up to 2 friendly targets.

Shadowlight Spear: 32 Mana, 12 second cooldown

Does increased damage, but applies Bones Aflame, doing DoT damage to yourself.

Shadowplate & Penumbra Rank 4 Passives

Increases your endurance by 15%
Reduces damage taken from spells by 25%

Neat little passives. Helps you survive more. Not much to say about it.

Soul Breaching: 15 Mana, 12 second cooldown

Damages enemies while enhancing mana regeneration with a guaranteed crit.

Overall View of the Class

Legion Paladins gain mana when they strike an enemy in combat. Most prefer strength, intellect but don't mind endurance and dexterity.

  • Medium healing + mana support. 
  • High damage, no AoE. 
  • Works well as a hybrid. 
  • No bonuses or debuffs to your own or enemy hit chance or haste. 
  • Huge damage but comes with a price.. one you’re totally capable of healing right back.

New Armor News

We've been making additions to some of our armors!

The Lunar Sandknight! Reens will be adding the color-custom code to the rest of the Lunar Sandknight set in Quibble's shop today. She's back in action today, but let's all cast /heal on Reens' household to drive away the Sick!

The armor, helms, sword, and wings will ALL be color-customizable!

Plumes of Paradise Alteration

Over the weekend, we fixed the issue on an armor released in February which made the skirt disappear and left just the bikini bottom showing. We are very careful to release armors which we feel will appeal to the majority of our playerbase while keeping in line with our E-10 rating, but sometimes mistakes and bugs slip in. 

Though the armor looked unbroken (if more revealing than we normally allow) when you review at our other Carnival armors, you see the lower halves of the female armors are much more covered than the Plume armor, having skirts or bottoms which cover their entire lower torso. No other older armors are going to be changed at this time. 

Later today, the sellback price will be raised to the original purchase price. If you do not wish to keep the armor, go ahead and sell it and you'll get all 600 ACs back. If you sold the armor already (after it was changed), we will run a query to give you the difference.

Find the Evolved Chronomancer at HeroMart!

If you haven't seen our new 2014 Artix Entertainment Calendar Poster, head to HeroMart! You'll get the ChronoCommander Class and armor set! AND... later today, we'll also add the Evolved Chronomancer Armor set from Tyronius!

If you already purchased the 2014 Calendar, you'll find this gear in your badge shop in the Book of Lore, along with all of the other in-game items that already came with it!!

Limited-Edition Gravelyn Print!

Gear Up for your Next Adventure at HeroMart!

Embrace the Darkness with one of our limited-edition Empress Gravelyn Prints at HeroMart! This 8.5 x 11 semi-gloss art print of Gravelyn, Empress of the ShadowScythe, will overshadow any other art it is near.

Each special edition print comes with an exclusive in-game item, while purchasing both at once unlocks the Dark Empress Blade!

Unarmored Gravelyn:

  • Shadow Wraith (Pet).

Armored Gravelyn:

  • Shadow of Sepulchure (Cape).

Purchase both special edition prints:

  • Shadow Wraith (Pet).
  • Shadow of Sepulchure (Cape).
  • BONUS Dark Empress Blade(Weapon).

Both of these prints were redesigned by Diozz_AQW.

Signed deluxe prints by Diozz are also available for purchase.

Who Is Gravelyn, Empress of the Shadowscythe?

One of AQWorlds' most beloved characters, Empress Gravelyn is the daughter of Sepulchure and leader of both the Shadowscythe AND the Evil faction of the Alliance against Chaos! She commands her skeletal warriors and legions of Evil players from her fortress in Shadowfall!

She sends a message to Drakath, Champion of Chaos: 
"Beware, for one day Shadowfall will RISE again! The day I take to the skies... you die."

Who Will YOU Ally With: Good or Evil?

If you choose to ally with Evil, Embrace the Darkness and bow to Gravelyn, Empress of the ShadowScythe! Followers of King Alteon the Good must accept the Alliance with Gravelyn's Evil warriors... or go rogue like General Lionfang! 

Once one of Good King Alteon's most loyal generals, Lionfang could not stand the idea of allying with Evil, and has accepted Chaos instead! Begin his story in our current Chaos Saga!

Happy Mogloween!

Are you Committed?

The Mogloween 2012 release is LIVE! This is a very special Mogloween release with musical guests One-Eyed Doll!

/join Asylum and you can watch One-Eyed Doll's brand new viceo for the song "Committed"! You'll also a new Mogloween 2012 shop, an Event Rare Shop and you can start the Committed Mogloween event!

Earlier today we released the new video in-game with most of the new items, but each of the previously released shops have had at least one more new item added to them.

If you can survive a night in the abandoned Asylum with Kimberly and me, then you will unlock the Committed Character Page Badge and the special Committed Merge Shop.

I think you'll find the Merge Shop to be especially difficult as it requires three merge items, all rare drops, all from bosses in the event, and two of the bosses are only found in the completely random maze of mirrors! So have fun with that!

Special thanks to One-Eyed Doll for allowing us to use their music and their voices in this event. For my own voice acting, I make no appologies.

Happy Mogloween 2012!

4th Upholder, Time Is Running Out!

If you haven't upgraded to become a 4th Upholder yet I should tell you that you're running out of time!

If you HAVE become a 4th Upholder, then I hope you enjoy the especially Member heavy Mogloween Shop and the other Member Only items from tonight's release. Along with all the other great benefits of supporting AQW with your Membership. Remember that you get Bragging Rights, another Character Page Badge and TWO rare Star Swords!

HeroMart Super Launch!

Today HeroMart has released THREE new items!

  • NEW CD: One-Eyed Doll's Something About a Dragon, which contains three of the songs from tonight's event PLUS Battleon! and the Pony vs. Pony theme song!

  • MOGLOWEEN 2012 SHIRT: Which comes with the amazing NeverMore armor and snazzy Mogloween 2012 "Haunted" Character Page Badge.
