12th Anniversary Week 2

Story Release: Shadows in the Mirror Realm

Log in as we continue the Shadows of Chaos Saga this weekend! Your fight to defend the Mirror Realm is not even close to finished. Malgor is sending one of his most trusted Shadowflame Generals -- and Xing, the Mirror Twin that betrayed Drakath -- to finish the mission to conquer Brightfall.

Unlock all-new reward gear this weekend as you battle monsters in /brightchaos.

12th Anniversary Gifts: New Armor Set + Badge

Tonight, head to Battleontown and look for Zorbak's newest Aspiring Apprentice Necromancer. Help him on his quests to unlock the pieces of his set. Then merge them up into color-customizable variants. All set pieces are 0 AC for free storage!

Plus, talk to Alina in Battleontown and complete the quest to unlock your free character page badge! The quest will be available until November 2nd, when the event leaves.

The more you play, the more rewards you'll unlock!

Every time you log into AQWorlds, you've got some goal: meeting up with friends, ranking your newest class, or farming for the Blinding Light of Destiny. The sense of satisfaction when you accomplish that goal is one of the best things about playing AQW! But we want to give you even MORE rewards for playing... and that's where the Achievement Tracker comes in.

After 12 years of increasingly epic items (from pets to armor sets to map-sized houses, exclusive class variants, and bonus Items of Digital Awesomeness), we've gotten a lot of feedback. Last year, when we released Items of Digital Awesomeness for our Membership and AdventureCoin support achievements, we heard your requests for equippable rewards rather than "invisible" ones. That's why this year, every achievement pack is a full item set. These are some of our best, most visually impressive sets, so when you log in with this gear equipped, you'll have an immediate WOW factor. 

Get more details in the 2020 Achievement Tracker Reward Design Notes post.

Support AQWorlds and Become a Legend!

12 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. Every October after that, we hold the Upholder promotion - anyone upgrading their account during that period (or whose membership ends in early November of that year) becomes an Upholder... making them one of our most Legendary supporters. AdventureQuest Worlds would not be what it is today without their support.
