What is a Limited Quantity Set?

The Limited Quantity Sets are just what they sounds like... each set has a certain quantity and once that number has sold out then that's it. The total number of sets is the same for everyone, everwhere, so if you see 300 items left on the web page, that's what we've got left in stock.

How Do Limited Quantity Sets Work?

  1. Log into your account manager on AQ.com (not into the game!) 
  2. Purchase the set using either ACs or gold
  3. Log into AQW and find your set badge in the Book of Lore 
  4. Get all the items in the badge shop for 0 ACs (yay free storage!)

  • Popular packs sell out quickly.  Player Support cannot give out packs/badges because a pack is sold out. 

Note: Earlier this month, we announced that the Crystallis Adjudicator set would release this week as one of our LQS packs. Scheduling issues arose and that set needed to be moved to next month. It will arrive in the Featured Gear Shop as a rare set available for AdventureCoins.
