Battle to the New Year

Replay Our Previous New Year's Events Now!

New Year's Eve is a time to make resolutions, vows, and promises to protect those you love and care for... and if you want to see New Year's morning, you're going to have to FIGHT! Log in now to battle your way through all our past New Year's releases, and make sure that tomorrow never dies!

Tinsel's Gifts Open January 1st!

As night continues to reign, you must quest to discover why Frostmane’s nightmare has become your reality!

A host of new rewards in the event and rares shop are on the horizon, including:

The Devastation of Frostfang

Did you think you were done?

The war is over, and the allies of Frostvale have beaten back Dage's army of icy monsters. But has good really prevailed? Even as the good heroes of Lore fought to save Frostval, they were really helping Dage realize his ultimate goal, and unleash...

That's one big dragon.

Unfortunatly, Frostfang is pretty much slaughtering everyone indiscriminately, so regardless of which side you fought on during last week's war, you'll need to take this big guy out. /join darkwinter and talk to Yorumi or Issik to get started!

And reach level 60 while you do it!

Yep, it's that time again! We've raised the level cap to 60, allowing you to be even stronger and battle even deadlier monsters! If you need help leveling up, visit Yulgar's Daily Quest Board. New level 55+ enhancements will also be coming later tonight.

Quibble, War Shop, & Countdown to the New Year!

As promised, since the war has ended, some of the items that did not make it into the merge shop will be purchaseable for ACs from the new Darkwinter War Shop. So if you didn't get that awesome sword you wanted so bad... now's your chance!Complete your set!

Quibble Coinbiter also has some new items to offer, including:

  • Bleakwind Rogue armor
  • Bleakwind Hood
  • Bleakwind Locks
  • Interfector Blade
  • Black Mage Hat

And we'll be starting up the New Year Evolution Shop! One new item will be released each day until January 1, 2014, at which point you'll have a chance to get...

Evolved Dark Fiend!

Other goodies include:

  • Evolved Barbaric Blade
  • Evolved Legendary Magma Sword
  • Evolved Phoenix Blade
  • Frost Kingslayer sword
  • Frigid Staff Of The North

Friday: Draconic Devastation

Once the war is over... the REAL battle begins!

Frostfang the Eternal Ice Dragon: a beast out of legend, terrorizing the land before man first roamed the world. Dage knows WHAT it is... Dage knows WHERE it is... but how does he want to use it? And... for what?! If you're going to survive this Frostval, you'd better make sure your stats are high and your HP potions are full!

Defeat the Beast to save Frostval!

/Join darkwinter to take part in Dage's Dark Winter war! Each night at midnight, the war meter will reset and the side with the most souls collected that day will get their reward!

Once the time is right (aka this Friday), Dage the evil will see his dream become YOUR nightmare!

Countdown to New Year's Limited Time Shop!

This Friday, the countdown to New Year's begins with the New Year's Evolution shop! As the years turn, the world around us evolves... and so does AQWorlds! The items in this shop will be inspired by legendary gear of the past. Thanks to Zoraith for the AWESOME shop suggestion!

A new item will be added to the shop each day until January 1st, when our New Year's event hub goes live!

Level Cap Raises to 60!

DING! Level up! It's Frostval, and that means your Hero has battled for another year, and has the ability to get EVEN stronger! Yulgar's Daily Quest board will have a new farming quest or two for our higher-leveled players to tackle to help them level up!

Holiday Boost on all servers!

Happy holidays! From now until release, battles and quests on Legend servers will give you 15% MORE Class Points AND Rep! All other servers will get 10% more Class Points and Rep!

Update on Friday's Release

News on Changes After Friday's release

A lot has happened since Friday's release of Dage's Dark Winter PVP war! Make sure you don't miss any of the changes!

Mid-weekend Releases

  • The Love Caster Class went live yesterday! Find the shop in your game menu. (The Love Caster armor is required to open the shop)
  • Find the Prismatic Smog Slayer armor set in the Wheel of Doom and Destiny merge shops for a limited time.
  • A second version of the Deorum Lance (the Bright Deorum Lance) was added to Quibble's shop.
  • The Smog Slayer armor set drops from the Wheels of Doom and Destiny for a limited time.
  • The drop rate for the Thanatos items from Dage's quests have been raised to 10% until the holidays are over.

Mid-weekend Bug Fixes

  • The Love Caster armor was temporarily removed from the shop while a sellback issue was fixed, but is back in Beleen's birthday shop now.
  • The Love Caster armor has been changed so it cannot be sold back until January 17th (this is to prevent people from abusing the sellback issue).
  • Certain players not being able to queue for the Frostbrawl map is being investigated now.
  • Because many players were experiencing disconnect issues while on the "Dage's Winter is Coming" quest from the Holiday Paragon Pet, the quest has been changed. To compensate for requiring multiple map-joins, the drop rate on the required items has been increased significantly.

The War for Frostval

Fight to Save Frostval - or Destroy It!

Tonight, a darkness descends over the land and threatens to destroy Frostval - a darkness named Dage! As a Hero of Lore, it's up to you to fight the forces of evil and save the holiday season! Or, if you're loyal to Dage, you can help him turn winter into the season of bleakness and despair that it was always meant to be.

Dage just has a different way of celebrating!

Sounds great! Where do I sign up?

There are two ways players can fight in this war. When you /join darkwinter, you'll be able to join a special PVP map, where you can battle other players to save (or destroy) the holiday season! Or, if PVP isn't your thing, completing quests for either Yorumi or Issik the Vile will also help fill the war meter.

Step it up, Evil! Good's kicking your butts!

However you choose to fight, you'll be collecting the souls of the good (if you're evil) or evil souls (if you're good) that can be used to buy items in the Darkwinter Good and Evil Merge shops. But there's a catch! We'll be adding new items to both shops each day, but only the winning side will be able to unlock access to their shop's items!

Here's how it works.

But don't panic. The meter will only be tracking daily progress, so it will reset every day to give both factions a fighting chance at the loot. So if you lost yesterday, you can still win today! And even if your side loses, don't despair! You'll still be able to buy one of your daily items for ACs at the end of the event. (On days that have more than one item, that means the second item will be gone forever!)

Some of the merge gear you'll fight to unlock!

Check out Dage's Darkwinter Rare Merge Shop too!

Members of Dage's Legion will be able to purchase this awesome holiday-themed Dage gear for a limited time!

Ho, ho, ho.

  • Holiday Paragon Plate armor
  • Holiday Paragon Helm
  • Legion Doombringer sword
  • Legion Neko Waif-er helm
  • Legion Neko Waif-ette helm

Releases still to come!

There is SO MUCH happening that we couldn't release it all at once! Here's what comes out later tonight:

  • Holiday Paragon armor and helm drop from the Wheel AND are in the merge shop NOW!
  • Holiday Paragon Pet in the Dage War Rares shop releases
  • Lovecaster Class (if you have the Lovecaster armor from Beleen)
  • Lothalis' Birthday shop in the game menu

Watch Sponsor Videos and Earn Free ACs


Want to get some free AC's each day?  A few seconds after you log into the game, a new green button may appear that looks like this:

The button will be located next to the Game Size selector. If you click the button a pop-up window will appear showing a sponsor video.

You can get between 1 and 25 free AC's by watching each video!  These new sponsor videos are available world-wide, but not always available for every country every day.

Currently, your new free AC's will not show up inside the game until you log back into the game. 

We recommend watching one video each day, and after a few days you can earn enough free AC's to buy something!  Sometimes you can watch the same video more than once!

What's a Quibble Coinbiter?

Not exactly sure who Quibble is, or how he gets all that gear? Neither are we! But here's what he said last time I asked:

How do I get never-before-seen used items? Well, that's a trade secret. But just between us, I have a deal with a time travel fairy who brings me these things… even though they have not been built yet! They might show up later in the game or might be Rares that are never seen again!

  • Crimsom, Emerald, and Obsidian Helms
  • Crimson and Emerald Star of Glory Staves

Candy Cane Saga

A Whole New “Twist” on Candy Canes

What does Frostval mean to you? Is it a time for sharing presents with loved ones? Is it to celebrate the birth of a Level 1 Healer? Is it the time for decadent desserts and bountiful feasts—all with the promise of exercising daily beginning January 1st?

Merry Frostval

To me, Frostval means spreading unconditional holiday cheer, joy, and love to everyone, everywhere! Frostval came early to a group of Special Needs Kids at my former high school. Surrounded by hundreds of balloons (and an entire carafe of coffee), I working into the wee hours of the morning, twisting 55 hand-made balloon candy canes.

Beleen Balloon animal candy cane making

It took me about 3 hours to make 55 balloon candy canes. Talk about super hard work with super soft balloons! But you know what? It was TOTALLY worth it!

Beleen balloon animals candy cane delivery

As soon as I walked into my high school’s cafeteria with my giant Santa’s bag full of calorie-free candy canes, all of the children fell in love with my balloons—and so did the adults, too!

Beleen candy cane balloon animals

These special kids have a special place in my heart. All the warm fuzzies I felt inside me is worth more than anything else—you just cannot put a price on being a good person… with exceptional balloon animal-making skills, at that!

On behalf of all the entire AQWorlds team and all your friends at Artix Entertainment, we wish you a very merry holiday season and a happy new year!

Stay jolly, my friends =D

Friday: Dage's Dark Winter

Can YOU Survive Frostval in the Blighted Forest?

As the snow starts to fall, heroes who have celebrated Frostval with us before grab their warmest cloaks and defrost their sharpest blades. They know that the merriest holidays bring the most brutal battles... and this year is no different!

You'd better watch out, you'd better not die!

Dark laughter rolls like thunder down a mountain overlooking Lore... and as the chills rise up your spine, you recognize the voice: Dage the Evil is coming to town... and it doesn't matter if you've been naughty or nice! If you want to survive this Friday, you're going to need to FIGHT! 

Battle the monsters of the Blighted Forest AND take on each other in PVP to earn resources for the Dark Winter merge shop... but be careful, Hero! Greed is in the air, and your fellow heroes are out to get YOU!

  • Choose a side to battle for: Good or Evil
  • Steal Frostval gifts, decorations & food for the Legion or recover them for the moglins
  • Destroy monsters or raise more of them to fight for Dage!
  • Destroy Legion minions to free them from Dage OR destroy moglins to claim them FOR Dage... then use the drops in the Dark Winter Merge Shop

Blighted Forest PVP Map! (Maybe) We are going to try to get another Bludrutbrawl-style PVP map up which will ALSO drop Good and Evil Souls which you can use in the Dark Winter merge shop!

Also Releasing This Week

  • Quibble returns with a bounty of Frostval gear! Keep an eye out for art previews!
  • Talk to Beleen on Friday to unlock the Lovecaster Class IF you have the LoveCaster armor (using an existing mage class as a base)
  • The SmargSlayer Armor set arrives in the Wheels of Doom and Destiny... with a color customizable version in the Doom/Destiny merge shops!

Keep Posts Safe and Fun

Navigating Communication on Social Networking

The internet is an incredible place! With it, you can play games, talk to people across the world, and access information you never would have known. One of the downsides of communicating on the internet is that it can be easy to forget you are talking to real people, and what you say or type can have a big impact.

Threatening or harrassing team members or the Lab is never going to be a good way to get our attention, or to request help for an issue you are having. It raises barriers where we want to keep all of our posts with you guys open, friendly, and FUN! 

Our programmers make YOUR ideas happen!

One of the BEST things about Artix Entertainment being an internet company is that our dream - to have you build the games alongside us - is a reality! We say you all are "the friends we've never met," and we really believe it. That's why we share so many personal stories (like Cysero's children being born, Rolith's proposal, and Artix's wedding).

We WANT you to send us your ideas, pictures, and suggestions for how we can make our games better! Just make sure you are commicating with us AND each other in a safe and appropriate way when you do !

Where to Post if you Have a Problem

  • Have an account, payment, or technical issue? Email Player Support
  • Found a bug in AQW? Report it on the Bug Tracker
  • Want to tell something to one of our team members? Tweet or Facebook it to us, but please make sure it's appropriate. (We keep ALL our communication family-friendly, and when you tweet us, it is a good idea to do that, too!)

And if YOU are seeing disturbing messages (or having them sent to you), there are steps you can take to prevent receiving them on Twitter or Facebook

It’s My Birthday!

Birthday Rares Shop now open in Frostvale

Yippie! I’m so super happy you came to my birthday in Frostvale!

Since today is my special day, the AQWorlds team said I could release anything I want in my birthday shop.

anything, you say?! Tehehee… well you know what that means… BRING ON THE PINK RARES, baby!

After asking my friends on Twitter what THEY wanted in my birthday shop, I narrowed down my favorites (and the possible ones) and created an onslaught of pink awesomeness (or madness?)!

All the items in my shop are RARE, and were priced accordingly to the original items so that way it’s fair for everyone. Of course, Dage the Evil and Nulgath aren’t all too happy that I “enhanced” their beloved items PINK, but hey, it’s MY birthday, and I am the Queen of Pink, so…. muahahahaa >:D (Now that’s how you do EVIL the right way, Dage and Nulgath!)
(Alina note: You are an example to all Evil-doers everywhere! #FF5DD9forever!)

Our fellow hero Submeobi mailed me a box of birthday items, too! And OF COURSE it was full of enough pink to melt Artix’s eyes. (Good thing this happened AFTER Artix’s wedding, huh?) 

Thank you SO MUCH Submeobi! And thank you to everyone who helped decide which items should be glorious pink in my Birthday Rares Shop!

I am so blessed to have amazing friends like you =D You have really made my special day even more special, and I cannot wait to see you and your friends adorned in pink-a-licious items. Be sure to send me screenshots on my Twitter—I’d love to see them and totally flaunt them!

Have a wonderful day, have a glorious weekend, and as always… battle on, my loves!

xoxo Beleen

PS: The Santa Cutie helms will arrive in Quibble's shop this Friday. We've got to make sure that little guy has some PINK items for Frostval, right?! Right!

Battle Wedding: A Love Story

Friday: Lord of the Wedding Ring In-Game Event!

Every young video game creator dreams about his wedding, and Artix's creator, Adam Bohn, was no different. You know, something traditional. White flowers… musical preludes… and the onslaught of armored groomsmen, swordfights, ninjas, Iron Man, Batman, WWE’s Jimmy Hart, and evil bellhops all taking place during the middle of the very organized, formal ceremony.

Don't believe me? Watch the video!

Organized? Formal? Not THIS Battle Wedding!

Our servers can hold over 50,000 players online at once, but the hotel where Adam and his bride, Michelle, got married is just NOT equipped to do that...  So we decided to recreate the wedding in-game! (With some twists and additions that are most definitely not legal in Florida. Like dungeons. Possibly zombies. MAYBE some cross-dimensional traveling...) 

This Friday, in-game Battle Wedding event arrives... and it's NEVER leaving! Expect to find:

  • True love
  • Traps, pitfalls, and pratfalls
  • Ninjas
  • Bellhops
  • a Rares Shop
  • and the unexpected!

A permanent merge shop will also release for those who battle through the event in the future! (And because the Glacial Warlord package released this week, we are able to make the majority of the rewards for Legends and free players!)

Lord of the Wedding Ring: Expect the Unexpected!

The groom and his groomsmen, all clad in armor-plated suits, ushered close friends and family to their seats. Even Adam’s battle Pomeranian, Daimyo, was dressed in a tuxedo for the magical occasion. The wedding ceremony was beautiful … until the Catholic priest said: “Should anyone have reason why these two should not be joined in holy matrimony, speak now or forever hold your peace…”

Suddenly... the BATTLE portion of this most-unconventional wedding began! It wouldn't be a Friday the 13th event if SOMETHING unexpected didn't happen!

If the previous in-game weddings in AdventureQuest Worlds imitate life, and Adam’s real-life wedding was imitating Artix games, then this is a prime example of “life imitating art imitating life.” And YOU are going to have to make sure the ending of THIS wedding ends in victory: with the bride and groom becoming man and wife! (As the Hero, that's your job. And we KNOW you are up to the challenge!)
