Before the Full Moon Rises...

The LunarMancer Needs Your Help!

The LunarMancer (no, we don't know his real name, he won't tell us...) needs someone to help him very, very badly. The villagers on the island of Luna Cove won't do it. When I asked, they just shook their heads, crossed their eyes, and stuck out their tongues. But if a certain Hero were to take a vacation to Luna Cove this weekend, we might discover why... and he might complete the spell that would help him gain the rest and respite he so badly needs! If that's enough of a Wednesday teaser for you. Stop here. Otherwise, read on!

There's just ONE. Little. Problem! As the moon moves through its phases, passing towards the full moon, lunarmancy gets stronger. And if your focus is not ABSOLUTELY PERFECT, spells and rituals are... apt to go awry. 

If you haven't checked your lunar calendar (or the night sky) lately, then you may have missed that it is ALMOST the full moon! And THAT means that the LunarMancer's power is ALMOST at full strength! This is both a good thing and a BAD thing - we're not quite sure WHAT will happen when (or IF) he completes the ritual. THAT is going to be up to you, Hero! 

 

Friday: The Fantastic LORE Limited Time Shop Arrives!

Starting this Friday, July 24th, find the Fantastic Lore shop in your game menu for until August 7th! Get Nulgath's "The Fiending" armor, helms, and maces, based on everyone's favorite Fantastic Four character, The Thing!

 

Get Up to 30% More Free Bonus ACs until Friday!

This Friday at 6PM server time, the free bonus amount and select packages will change! If you want to get the most bonus ACs (so you don't miss any of our awesome summer rare rewards like The Collector Class or the Ancient Grovebreaker Blade), now's the best time to do it!

Bug Fix update: The Dead Rewards Shop in /death. which had been erroneously removed, has been returned. The gear is now available again! Thanks to all those who reported it!

Nulgath Strikes Back!

Brand New Archfiend Class arrives Friday

When anyone whispers the name “Nulgath,” shivers run down my spine, my hair stands on end, and ermahgerd goose bumps consume my body.

So you can only image how terrified I was when the AQWorlds team told me that we’re releasing a Nulgath Class on Friday: the color custom Archfiend Class!

Archfiend Class

One can always tell when an Archfiend has dominated the battlefield. A wake of devastation and destruction follows the Archfiend, as if it personally signed its name on every fallen victim!

Drawing its vicious power from the Abyss, every spell the Archfiend casts has a chance to leech life from his opponent. The Archfiend has no compassion for those weaker than him—and, in this case, encompasses just about everyone and everything.

Due to his ruthless tactics and thirst for war, Nulgath was exiled into the OverSoul Abyss last year…but from the looks of things, Nulgath has returned once more to Lore. When the sun sets this Friday evening, the Archfiend will rise, engulfing all who wish to deliver massive damage to the battlefield!

Archfiend takes flight

Rumor has it that anyone can become an Archfiend Class with a 2,000 AdventureCoins donation. Upgraded Legends always have the upper hand, though; Nulgath will make Legends an Archfiend in exchange for his Fiend Tokens. How many? …Nulgath hasn’t told us yet, because he is pure Evil and wants to keep us all in suspense!   

Speaking of suspense…

Nulgath is keeping the Archfiend’s Class Skills and Abilities a secret… for now. Our magnificent potions master, Alina, is currently concocting a truth serum to put in Nulgath’s goblet. If successful, Alina will retrieve the list of attacks from the head Archfiend himself.

Alina and her potions

We wish you the best of luck, Alina!

And I wish all of you the best of luck in your ongoing adventures… even if you DO become an Archfiend on Friday evening… *shiver*

xoxo Beleen

The Final Judgment!

Travel to the Plane of Judgment this Friday

You have fearlessly fought across the Isle of Fotia. Then you dove deep into the dark depths of the Underworld and confronted the 9 Guilty Joys. You traversed the River Acheron with Charon the Ferryman, defeated the Styx Hydra, and slayed Dage’s 3-headed hound Cerberus.

Hydra Battle 

The gates leading into Dage’s kingdom will finally open Friday evening! Stroll through the surreal Field of Asphodels, survive the Vale of Mourning, and meet the 3 Judges of the Underworld: Rhadamanthys, Minos, and Aeacus!

Judges of the Underworld

The brave heroes who meet Dage’s Judges will be fairly trialed… in accordance to Dage’s understanding of “fair.” You will be judged on:

  • your overall performance as a hero or villain
  • Dage’s standards as a Dark Lord
  • and on your relationship to Dage!

The 3 Judges guard the entrance to Dage’s Palace. Only if you prove your worth to them will you possibly gain admittance to the Dark Lord’s throne!

Oh and OF COURSE there’s going to be epic item rewards for the victorious.

Speaking of Victory…

We’ve got a bunch of sweet loot headed your way!

  • Tuesday’s Featured Artist Shop: Solrac!
  • Rare Dage items arriving Friday
  • Combat Dage’s Rares with Nulgath’s Rares on Friday
  • New quests for new gear in Tercessuinotlim
  • MechQuest Finale Shop & quests 

Evil vs Evil!

Find the Archfiend Armor (NOT the Class), Blade, and more in Nulgath's Rares shop this Friday! The Legend-onlyFiendish Blade BattlePet and other gear for ALL players will be added to quests in the /Tercessuinotlim map Friday, too!

Talk to Dage in Battleon or in the Soulforge for the Undead Legion Rares shop! Members of the Undead Legion will be able to quest for Legion-exclusive gear (got your Legion Tokens ready?)!

Looks like you’ve got A LOT to do before release Friday night! If you haven’t already, catch up on Dage’s Underworld adventures by /join fotia, travel to /join tercessuinotlim to embark on Nulgath’s insane zone, and head to MechQuest.com and play through the beginning of the finale!

Next Week: Quibble Arrives

Everyone’s favorite traveling sales Moglin has just booked his ticket back to Battleon! Next week, Quibble will bring a bunch of never-before-seen items that will rock the entire (AQ)world.

Keep an eye on the Design Notes later this week for spoiler previews!

Until then… Battle on!
