Now Available: Extraterreptile Armor

Why wait until Friday? Play now for more reward gear!

Every day you log in to AdventureQuest Worlds, there's a new server boost, item reward drop, or activity for you to enjoy. Our main game updates go live on Friday nights; this year, in addition to the weekend item hunts and daily server boosts, we've added an additional mid-week mini-release to our schedule. Our team gets to be even more creative and YOU get even more rewards. It is win-win! 

November 7th || Future Expansion

Dinosaurs once ruled our world. Years from now, Extraterreptiles will rule it again... unless you're the Dragon of Time, and can /join future! Click the screen to begin a quest to join the Alien Dinosaur army and unlock a new 0 AC armor!

News on delayed updates from last week:

October 31st || Headless Horseman Set

As ghouls and goblins around chase after sweet treats, we're celebrating Halloween with a midweek update in Darkovia! Talk to Constantin in /crescentmoon to get a new quest for 0 AC seasonal gear from Oversoul that might just make you lose your head!

October 17th || The Bard Meidrella

Today's update shines a light on a different segment of our creative community: the writers! Complete Maya's 3 Greenguard quests to unlock a short story by the talented scribe, AQWorlds hero and writer, Meidrella, featuring Paladins + Necromancers!

These three quests are perfect for low-level heroes first exploring Battleon and Greenguard. Let us know if you want more chapters! If you like the tale so far, additional chapters are possible and would be target higher levels and expand beyond Greenguard.

We've also discussed adding a longer-form version of the in-game tale on the website, for those who would like to read more.

Meidrella has also written a short introduction and dedication she'd like to share with you all:

Pleased to meet you, Heroes. My name is Meidrella, a storyteller / scribble scribe in my young 20s. I’ve always used writing as an escape into worlds of my imagination from the outside world since I was young. Adventure Quest Worlds has been a grand part in the scheme of delving into such worlds, and I am most enthralled to be writing lore for Lore.

Dedication: this particular piece is dedicated to my mom; the real life hero who inspired me to keep writing my stories for years after years. I couldn’t have gotten this far without you.

October 10th || Vampiric Chalices

Countless heroes have fallen in search for these chalices. May their memories live on longer than they did. Battle the Zard in Battleontown to get the Blood-Soaked Note clue; it will guide you to the next step in your hunt for these priceless treasures! 

October 3rd || Chaos Kitsune Hunt I

Celebrate our 15th birthday by questing to unlock an iconic-but-unreleased item: ChaosLord Kitsune's helm! In Part 1, your efforts will be rewarded with the Mystical Chaos Gems cape. Talk to Valencia in the /museum to begin the hunt now!

September 26th || Lost Guardian Blade III

The Guardians who watch over the tower in Battleon are famous throughout Lore, with a history going back for years upon years. Grizzled veterans tell tales to new recruits of the strongest and bravest among them, filling their heads with dreams of glory and visions of bright blades flashing in the sunlight. Talk to Valencia in the /museum to begin a series of quests to reforge a blade by one of these lost, legendary guardians!

New: Star Rating Difficulty Guide

To help you better gauge the type, length, and difficulty of our mid-week updates, we're adding Star Ratings (like you see on monsters)

  • 1 star: Pretty simple. Most players should be able to finish this with little to no issue. 
  • 2 star: Slightly more complex. It might take looking up a clue or two on the wiki, or talking to friends. 
  • 3 star: Somewhat complex. These may have a ciper or a multi-step clue to solve. 
  • 4 star: Complex. Tough clues, 1 or 2 unique clue locations, and may be level-locked. 
  • 5 star: Very complex. Very difficult clues, multiple unique clue locations, will likely require heroes to show/hide the UI, check background art, and may require some monster farming.

Thank you to everyone that has been logging in, enjoying, and sharing your thoughts on the last few months of mid-week treasure hunts and updates. We'll continue to evolve our mid-week updates based on your feedback!
