Tonight: Trapped in Time

Race through Space and Time to Stop the Queen of Monsters!

Take the battle against the Queen of Monsters into new dimensions! Travel into the past to help an assassin with a dark secret steal the Star Core before the Queen of Monsters can get it… or our future will cease to exist!

Release Design Contest Winners: Final, Cassiun, and Clairis

This is the first of our player-designed releases, and was created by the winning trio of Final, Cassiun, and Clairis! The background art featured in the release was based on a design by AQW players Cruse and Nici; Cruse also created the design for the Prime monster, as well!

They are taking you on an adventure through space and time, and when you're finished, you'll unlock farming quests for some of the best gear in the entire release... like the Prime's Star Striker Blade!  Though all of the other gear in the Starsinc merge shop will be permanently available, you'll only be able to get the Prime's Star Striker blade until November 13, 2015!

Quest for the Necrotic Sword of Doom!

The long-awaited blade of darkness is finally here! In order to get this iconic blade - first seen by DragonFable players many years ago - you'll need to farm WORK for it!* This is an end-game challenge for players who need another goal. Beware - this is not for the faint of heart!

You'll need to have rank 10 Evil Rep to begin the first quest, and to start the final quest, you'll need rank 10 Necromancer.

If you are an AQWorlds member, you get an awesome shortcut! You only need 201 drops needed for the first quest -  regular players need 350.

If you have Sepulchure's DoomKnight Armor, you ALSO get a VERY nice shortcut since you had to work so hard to get it: only 53 drops needed for the first quest while regular players need 350.

Panjat Pinang is HERE!

In celebration of Indonesia's Independence Day, we've brought back the Panjat Pinang map! Panjat Pinang is an Indonesian tradition in which celebrants try to climb a very tall, very slippery pole to try to reach the goodies stuck to the top. Since the pole is so slippery, this is usually a group effort! 

Don't fall! You're almost there!

So get some friends and take down our Panjat Pinang pole or a chance at some of its awesome loot! Beating this thing down can get you an Indonesian blade in 3 different designs, both single- and dual-wield!

Coming This Friday: Trapped in Time!

Race through Space and Time to Stop the Queen of Monsters!

Take the battle against the Queen of Monsters into new dimensions! Travel into the past to help an assassin with a dark secret steal the Star Core before the Queen of Monsters can get it… or our future will cease to exist!

Release Design Contest Winners: Final, Cassiun, and Clairis

This is the first of our player-designed releases, and was created by the winning trio of Final, Cassiun, and Clairis! The background art featured in the release was based on a design by AQW players Cruse and Nici; Cruse also created the design for the Prime monster, as well!

Final told us: "I learned of AQW through an ad on the Adventure Quest original game site. My account was created mere days after the Beta had ended, sadly. Since the day I began playing, AQW has stuck to me. The weekly releases always keep me coming back, and I never fail to love every one. Another reason I have played so long is the great community I dedicated this releases to "Stars." It is a collection of multiple guilds all together, hosted on Starsinc.co" 

Clairis writes: "I was first introduced to AQW in 2008, by my brother, Narej. I excitedly made my first account and have played nearly everyday since then. The constant new releases, and my awesome guild, Solar Flare, keep me very interested in the game."

He guards the Star Core... and will not give it up easily!

They are taking you on an adventure through space and time, and when you're finished, you'll unlock farming quests for some of the best gear in the entire release!

Also coming this week:

  • The quest for the Necrotic Sword of Doom - yes, it will finally be here!
  • Panjat Pinang Returns!

Undead Goat Class and NSoD Updates

Updates Are Coming!

In addition to the weekly releases (with new storyline updates, shops, farming gear, and challenge monsters) and working on the upcoming Summer 2015 Return of the Living Devs events, we've got a number of side projects that we are working on each week, like the Undead Goat Class, Necrotic Blade of Doom, and more... and we know many of you are incredibly eager to get your gauntlets on these hot-ticked items. So without further ado, read on for project updates and new details.

Undead Goat Class Status: In Progress

Our Class designers have been hard at work (amidst classes ending, real-life jobs, and summer insanity interfering) to create the Undead Goat Class - chosen by Noobstine, winner of the I Can Has Mod contest - and they have made progress. In order to make sure the Undead Goat Class does not resemble others too closely, we're taking extra time to review the skills and come up with a combination that will do Noobstine's theme and generosity justice.

Because the Golden Cheezburger is a 0AC item, you can store it for free in your inventory. Then, when the Class is ready, you'll take it to Noobstine's NPC in Greenguard and exchange it for the Class!

Necrotic Sword of Doom Quests: In Progress

Asuka and Tendou - two of AQW's volunteer testers - have designed several challenge quests and Nulgath updates over the last year. They're crafting a quest chain that will fit both the Blade's theme and its importance to the storyline. 

Once the quests are ready, you'll speak with one of the Dark Minions in Shadowfall to begin battling for the Necrotic Sword of Doom. Prepare yourselves, Heroes, and rank up that Evil Rep!
