The Wheel of Doom spins round and round... and this week, as the Northern hemisphere continues battling ice, snow, and other wintery dangers, we've got an all-new, super-cool set for you -- the Alpha Winter Defender!
New Gear from the Wheel of Doom!
We know a lot of you are raring to redeem your free spins... so we're adding a full new Epic rarity set for you, crafted by AQW Community Artist, Rare! Each of the Alpha Winter Defender set pieces will be available from the Wheel of Doom and from the Doom merge shop. The bright blue fabric parts of the set shown below are color customizable.
Pieces of the set include:
- Winter Defender Alpha armor
- Winter Defense Scarf Helm + Locks
- Snow Owl Helm + Locks
- Winter Defense Beret + Locks
- Winter Defense Rifle Alpha
- Defender's Snow Owl Pet
- Snow Owl on your Shoulder cape
- Winter Defense Backrifle
All our seasonal Winter Wheel of Doom gear - including the Winter Defender set - will leave leave Wednesday, March 20th, the first day of Spring. This gear will return next year during the Winter months.
Get your Free Spins
Everyone loves to get prizes... and that's why we brought back back free spins for the Wheel of Doom!
- Members get one free spin a day while their upgrade is active
- All players get one free spin a week.
See the Free Spins Design Notes for more details.
Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness
We've gotten a lot of really positive feedback after introducing the free spins... but also a lot of you who wanted 1) a way to make sure you got an Item of Donated Awesomeness and 2) kept spinning in a quest to get the Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness to drop from the Wheel... and then not didn't get it.
That's why, earlier this month, we introduced the Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness. This item is available from the Doom Merge Shop, so even if you don't receive the EIoDA as a bonus prize, you can save up your Treasure Potions and get the PIoDA.
- The PIoDA will be a Wheel of Doom merge shop exclusive.
- Cost: 1,000 Treasure Potions.
- You can get both the EIoDA (from the Wheel) and the PIoDA (from the merge shop)
- The PIoDA currently stacks up to x5.
At a cost of 1,000 Treasure Potions, that means a member who ONLY uses their one free spin per day/week will need to log in every day for about 2.5 years to get it... but they WILL get it eventually.
* Exceptions include staff personal items, custom weapon contest prizes, HeroMart items, etc
