Our Upgrade Bonuses Level Up... Choose your Reward!
In the past, our upgrade bonus sets would only be available for a single month, and then would become permanently rare. We made some really incredible gear... that no one can get now. I've talked with many of you individually to brainstorm and get feedback, and starting this month, our upgrade bonuses will become permanently available. We will continue to add new upgrade bonuses regularly* - the big difference is...
You'll be able to choose WHICH upgrade bonus set you want!
Next month, when we add another upgrade bonus pack, the Void ChronoKnight will still be available. So as you select the membership or AdventureCoin pack you want, you'll also choose which upgrade bonus reward you want. You'll unlock the character page badge and Book of Lore Shop like normal.
* We still plan to add a new pack each month.
New for 2019: Upgrade Set Series
We know many of you love that feeling of unlocking exclusive items, and feel really special when you have something that only a handful of other players can equip. We're bringing that to our Upgrade Packs with Upgrade Set series.
Going forward, each time we do a new upgrade pack in a given theme (like "Nulgath's Void" or "Yokai" or "ShadowFall"), we’ll add it to the series. You'll need to get the first set in a series before you can unlock the next.
Upgrade Pack Changes: Why Now?
As I talked with many of your fellow AQW players about these changes, one question repeated itself over and over: "why do we need to do this? Why now?"
Development for AQW:Mobile is going to go into overdrive in January. With AQW:Mobile, we will not be able to do nearly as many rare items (this is in large part for game performance reasons, like managing asset loading, just like in AQ3D).
It is also a pretty big blow to the artists and future players to lose access to entire sets of gear every month (one reason we did not make the Northlands Royalty upgrade sets rare).
We want to avoid that. We want to keep all the incredible art the team makes available for everyone, no matter when they start playing. And as we move into new platforms (mobile devices, Steam, ... maybe consoles?!) we want to make sure that art is available for the new heroes who will join you.
