Upgrade to become a 10th Upholder until November 2nd

AQW is coming up on another birthday... a very SPECIAL birthday! That means starting NOW, we are once again offering the chance to become an AQW Upholder!* Upgrade with any membership until November 2nd to unlock our 2018 Star Swords, the exclusive class, zone, and all our membership perks! 

What is an Upholder?

Ten years ago, AdventureQuest Worlds went live and players jumped at the chance to become the first Members of AQW. These lucky, early supporters of the game became the game's Founders. Now, we are celebrating AQW's 10th birthday and offering YOU the chance to join the AQW Founders by becoming a 10th Upholder!

The first ten years have been crazy, insane, and awesome, but you have not seen anything yet. Our programmers' focus has been, and will continue, on the AQWorlds: Mobile port of the game. On the web version, Artix, Memet, and I met on the 2019 main story. It is Time that you unlocked one of the main Eternal Dragon of Time powers and take care of the Queen of Monsters once and for all. For Good, for Evil, and for Eternity!

What does a 10th Upholder get?

As a 10th Upholder, you'll receive:

  • Exclusive Upholder Class: Sentinel Class!*

  • Spiderking Star Sword (and classic variant)

  • Plasma Star Sword  (and classic variant)

  • Gilded Star Sword (and classic variant) 

  • Bloodborne Star Sword (and classic variant)

  • 10th Upholder Character Page Badge

  • Infinite bragging rights

  • Access to the exclusive Star Sword: Origins zone

Once you become a 10th Upholder, you can easily access these Items in your Book of Lore by clicking your 10th Upholder Badge icon in the Badges tab.

* The Sentinel Class will be available for ALL previous Upholders and Founders as our way of saying thanks for supporting us in the past!

How do I become a 10th Upholder?

All that we ask is that you help support AQW the game undergoes its exciting rebirth!

If your account is ALREADY upgraded and your membership expires AFTER November 2nd, 2018, then you are automatically a 10th Upholder. Congratulations!

Please note that only Upgraded Legend Memberships count toward 10th Upholder.

Want to know if you're already an Upholder?

That's easy! Just click the Manage Account link on the left under the ACCOUNT section. As soon as you sign in you'll see when your membership expires. Here's mine:

Cool! When Do I Get My Upholder Gear?

10th Upholder badges, Star Swords, and Sentinel Class will be awarded starting September 28th! You will find your 10th Upholder Badge in your Book of Lore in the Other Badges tab.

Only Memberships Count?

Yes. You can use Artix Points on the Portal site or any method in AQW to upgrade, but it MUST be an AQW Membership. AdventureCoins DO NOT COUNT TOWARD 10th Upholder.

Your Support Makes AQWorlds Possible!

Thank you so much for helping us make AQWorlds! Without you, we couldn't make this game, or allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy it for free. We couldn't keep AQWorlds running without every single upgrade and AC that you buy. Nearly every penny you spend goes back into the game.

Though some people prefer buying AdventureCoins and others prefer upgrading, anyone who spends real money on this game deserves to get as much as we can give them, because without their support... there wouldn't BE an AQWorlds for everyone to play!

You may not know this but AQW (like all AE games) is ENTIRELY supported by the players. We have no financial backers and nobody owns stock in the company. Clicking on ads and doing AExtras offers does bring in some money, but not nearly enough to keep AQWorlds free for everyone to enjoy.

That's why we continue to reward the AQWorlds' Founders, who supported us in the very beginning. To make sure they know how much we appreciate that, we are continuing to give them free gear each year!

Thank you for battling alongside us, and for sharing your ideas and love of AQWorlds with us. You truly are the best gaming community on the internet, and I am genuinely grateful for all of you. /bow Thank you for the first 10 years of AQWorlds, and here's to another 5 years, 10 years, and beyond!

* The same way that the Founders got their chance at the birth of the game and the way 1st Upholders got their chance nine years ago, 2nd Upholders got the chance eight years ago, 3rd Upholders got the chance seven years ago, 4th Upholders got their chance six years ago, 5th upholders got their chance five years ago, 6th upholders got their chance four years ago, 7th Upholders got their chance three years ago, 8th Upholders got their chance two years ago, and 9th upholders got their chance last year at this time.
