3rd Birthday Event - Tonight!
AQWorlds' 3rd Birthday Event Comes Tonight!
Rares! You either love them or hate them, but would you ever want to BE one? This Friday, YOU are the MVC (most valuable collectible), because you're a Hero with a Great Destiny, and The Collector wants YOU as his most prized possession!
After falling into a portal through Space and Time, you'll find yourself trapped in the Collection along with John and John from They Might Be Giants! Along with John and John and a character you know and love (or hate), you'll need to free yourself from The Collector's clutches. By any means necessary! AND you'll get to collect EPIC rares while you do it!
In our most awesome birthday event yet - starring the BIGGEST (literally!) guest musicians yet - you're going to have a world of opportunities to BATTLE ON! Even if your world has shrunk to the size of a dome floating in the farthest reaches of hyperspace!
AQWorlds' giant-sized 3rd birthday event will be out of this world... and this is only Part 1! Join us tonight at 6PM for the rarest, most valuable birthday event yet!
3rd Upholder Time!
Now that October has actually arrived, the weather is starting to cool down, the days are getting shorter and it's Upholder Time in AQW!
October is AQWorlds' anniversary month! And THAT means that anyone who upgrades (as long as your upgrade expires ON or AFTER November 4th, 2011) will become a 3rd Upholder! That'll get you a sweet character page achievement and the EPIC Platinum Star Sword! (The Star Sword will not be released until November 4th.)

They Might Be EPIC Rares!
AQWorlds' 3rd Birthday Event Rare Items!
When we invited They Might Be Giants to do AQWorlds' 3rd birthday blowout this year, we knew that the equips that were released alongside them had to be bigger than gigantic... they had to be universally EPIC! (The Universe is bigger than a normal giant, but only slightly bigger than the Giants They Might Be.)
We will have an AC shop as well as TWO merge shops! One will require Tokens of Vindication, which drop from daily quests. Members will have two daily quests available to them, while non-members can do one a day.*. The other will require various Super-Fan Tokens that the monsters will drop.
Here's a first look for many of you (unless you follow us on Twitter!) at some of the time-bending, space-rending, universe-ending equips that we will be releasing on Friday during the event!
* Members can earn up to 2 Tokens of Vindication a day, which lets them get items faster!
- Universe Armor - 800 ACs
- Celestial Hair - 100 ACs
- Universe Hood - 100 ACs
- Galactic Hackers - 175 ACs
- Particle Armor - 10 Tokens of Vindication (member)
- Particle Armaments - 6 Tokens of Vindication (member)
- Particle Pack - 3 Tokens of Vindication (non-member)
- Particle Blade - 5 Tokens of Vindication (non-member)
- Robot Parade Chassis - 6 Tokens of Vindication (non-member)
- Robot Parade Mask - 2 Tokens of Vindication (non-member)
- Robot Parade Copper Topper - 2 Tokens of Vindication (non-member)
- Robot Parade Blade - 3 Tokens of Vindication (member)
- Robot Parade Flag - 2 Tokens of Vindication (member)
- Paper Bag Head - 6 Tokens of Vindication (member)
- Hovering Sombrero Cape - 2 Tokens of Vindication (non-member)
- Chicken And Ice Cream Helm - 1 Super Fan Swag Token C (non-member)
We have MANY more rockin' rares (only available in-game for ONE year!) that we haven't shown you! You'll just have to log in and battle your way through the Collector's prison to earn these awesome equips!
Vindicator of They Class and Set!
They Might Need a Hero, and YOU definitely need a new class! Save John and John, battle your way through the daily quests they offer, and take down the obviously over-rated opponents (a win will up your Rare Score!), and you'll be well on your way to becoming a Vindicator of They! (Class will not release until NEXT Friday.)
The Vindicator of They non-member Class will be sold for 2000 ACs at Itzachi in BattleOn OR you can earn it by stocking up 90 Tokens of Vindication! The rest of the set will be available in the Tokens of Vindication Merge shop THIS Friday!
- Vindicator of They Class - 2,000 ACs OR 90 Tokens of Vindication
- Vindicator of They Helm - 15 Tokens of Vindication
- Vindicator of They Blade - 45 Tokens of Vindication
- Vindicator of They Cape - 5 Tokens of Vindication
Many members of the Artix Entertainment team (from more than just the AQW team) have been hard at work on this 3rd birthday event for weeks! And THIS Friday you'll see Part 1 of the biggest AQWorlds event with our BIGGEST guests ever!
