Pride 2023: Show Your True Colors...

...This month, and every month! Feeling like you're different, or don't belong, is always a challenge... and that's especially true in today's world. That's why it is so important to recognize that our differences and unique qualities are what make us special. 

The Artix Entertainment community has always been made up of many different heroes. The AdventureQuest Worlds team is as diverse and multi-cultural as our community. And as a team, we feel it's important that we always respect ALL heroes.

That's why, as people around the United States celebrate Pride month, we're bringing back our gear, with an important change: the seasonal Pride shop is now a permanent one. We've added Mi, the non-binary NPC from Darkon's Elegy of Madness Saga, in the Shinkansen map* as the shop vendor.

They are proud to be Mi**, and we believe that you should always be proud of who you are and the struggles you've overcome.

Reward Drops:

  • Pastel Rainbow Armor
  • 2 Pastel Rainbow Helms
  • Joy Explorer Ground Rune

All 4 drops are 0 AC and seasonal, and can be obtained by battling the MMMirage monster in /summerbreak.

Seasonal Shop Gear:

  • Joy Explorer, Reversed Joy Explorer, and Joy Wanderer gear
  • Prismatic Pride Outfit + accessories***
  • Rainbow Pride Outfit + accessories
  • Shades of Pink Outfit + accessories
  • Shades of Violet Outfit + accessories
  • Rainbow Crocodile Pet

Live a life full of color, happiness, joy, and pride. Battle On!

* As Mi says, "There is so much to do and to look at in the Shinkansen, so many different people and cultures. It’s the perfect place to hang out and just be yourself without worrying you’ll stick out. That’s why they chose to set up shop there."

** Mi's guitar is scheduled to arrive in-game next month, for International Non-Binary People's Day.
*** Four colors to customize (base, trim, accessories, and eye color)
