This Weekend: Summer Treasures

Dark and Delightful New Armor Sets

Whether you want to tap into your inner darkness or celebrate the Summer sun... we've got new gear for you this weekend! Find three new Elegy of Madness-themed swimsuit armors in the Wheel of Doom merge shop, plus find the Faerie Guardian set dropping from Twilly's Treasure Chest quest!

Twilly's Treasure Chest: Faerie Guardian Set

The Faeries of Greenguard Forest are known to keep butterflies as pets all Summer long, and will craft many of their outfits based on the colorful patterns of the Monarch Butterfly's wings.


Open a Treasure Chest for a chance to get 1 of...

  • 50 armors
  • 55+ weapons
  • 70+ helms
  • 10+ capes
  • or 3 house items (including the Altar of Caladbolg)
  • Plus 13 new items in the Faerie Guardian set

The Faerie Guardian set includes:

  • 1 armor
  • 7 helms
  • 1 quiver cape
  • 1 staff
  • 1 sword
  • 1 bow

Wheel of Doom Merge Shop

Astravia is situated in the cold north and the pockets of liquid that could pass as lakes in The Garden are nowhere near jacuzzi temperature. Wetsuits are the norm for any denizens* dwelling there. 


Find the following set items in the Wheel of Doom merge shop:

  • Darkon's Wetsuit + 2 helms
  • So's Swimsuit + 3 helms
  • Suki's Wetsuit + 2 helms

* Mi's Swimsuit + helms will be added as daily login gift drops to the /summerbreak map next month!

Get your Free Wheel of Doom Spins

Everyone loves to get prizes... and that's why everyone in AdventureQuest Worlds will get at least one free spin on the Wheel of Doom per week.

  • Members get one free spin a day while their upgrade is active
  • All players get one free spin a week. 

Spin the Wheel, Collect Treasures, Choose Your Prize 

Each time you spin the Wheel of Doom, you'll get a Treasure Potion to spend in the Doom Merge Shop. Save up 1,000 and you'll be able to buy a Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness. Each WIoDA lets you choose a rare or valuable item* straight from your account manager.

How to Claim your Prize

Make sure you have a confirmed email address attached to your game account, and then follow these steps:

  1. Decide on the item you want
  2. Log into your Account Manager
  3. Click on the "Awesome Prizes" link on the sidebar
  4. You'll see a list of the IoDA tokens you have available
  5. Choose from a list of ALL the eligible item rewards  
  6. You'll be taken to a verification page to confirm your choice

Redeem IoDA tokens to get even MORE bonuses

For each of the first six eligible IoDA tokens you receive , you'll get a FREE Bonus IoDA. The eligible tokens are the Ultimate, Epic, Platinum, Wicked  and Golden tokens. After that, you'll get a free Bonus IoDA for every 3 eligible IoDA you redeem, with no maximum stack. So if you have that dream set of gear you want to create... now you'll be able to.

After you redeem your...

  • 1st IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 2nd IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 3rd IoDA, you'll unlock 1free bonus IoDA
  • 4th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 5th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 6th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA

Then, for every 3 IoDA you redeem, you'll unlock another free bonus IoDA.

After you redeem your...

  • 7th, 8th, and 9th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 10th, 11th, and 12th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA

And so on. The 3:1 bonus IoDA ratio starts after you get your first 6 free BIoDA, regardless of when you received them. (Example: if you've redeemed a total of 21 IoDA tokens, you'll unlock 11 BIoDA total. The first 6 BIoDA at a 1:1 ratio, and then 5 more at the 3:1 ratio.)

* Exceptions include staff personal items, custom weapon contest prizes, HeroMart items, etc

Treasure Chests Details

There is a small chance to get a mysterious Treasure Chest as a reward drop when you battle ANY monster in-game. Have you found one yet?

Treasure chests are a fun - but completely optional - way to get exclusive items in AdventureQuest Worlds. The chests have a less than 1% chance of dropping from ANY monster in the entire game. Each one contains one of over 215 epic items that you can't get anywhere else (and the number will keep growing)!

  • All of the items are 0 AC so you can store them for free 
  • All of the items are non-member so you can use them forever

There's just one problem. You can't open the Treasure Chests without a Magic Key. The good news is that Twilly (the little red Moglin in Battleon) has a few extras and will happily sell you one for 200 ACs and open your chest for you.

Monthly Membership Perk Arrives Monday, August 1st

Members, log in and talk to Twilly this Sunday to claim your two FREE treasure chest keys! Collect treasure chests as you battle through Lore, then use the keys to open them for new free items. 

Want to get in on this?

Upgrade your AdventureQuest Worlds character with any membership package to unlock two free Treasure Chest Keys for each month the membership is active.

* We will begin updating the treasure chest rewards again on a regular basis, so if you've already collected all the gear... get ready to unlock more in the near future!

Shadows Of War Finale, Part I

This weekend's new game update is here

During the 13 Lords of Chaos Saga, you fought against Drakath's Chaos Champions. But ultimately, the Queen of Monsters was freed from her prison. We've fought her minions ever since... until a new threat emerged: Malgor, leader of the ShadowFlame. His goal: to destroy our world by corrupting the magic of Lore itself! If he succeeds, he will be unstoppable, and we will all be very, VERY dead. This weekend, log in and battle through the 13th and final chapter of his tale as we begin the Shadows of War Saga finale!

Malgor has corrupted the Mana Core with Shadowflame, and his influence is beginning to spread to all of the living beings in Lore. The final battle is almost at hand! Gather your allies and race to save the world as Malgor launches his final attempt to conquer EVERYTHING... and destroy our world in a tidal wave of despair, darkness, and shadow. 

This weekend, /join ruinedcrown to continue your adventure! And don't miss the rest of the Saga! See the full Shadows of War Saga Guide here

Shadowy Reward Gear

Whether you ally with Good, Evil, or Chaos... the heroes of Lore have always followed leaders whose nature is well-defined and whose goals are clear. But for those who choose to serve Malgor, leader of the ShadowFlame... a very dark fate awaits. If you /equip this ShadowFlame loot, make sure YOU don't get corrupted by his darkness, too!

Battle monsters in /ruinedcrown for new drops, then talk to Lord Brentan after completing the story quests to unlock his merge shop with even more gear.

Reward Drops:

  • Warlic's dark armor
  • ShadowFlame Warrior, Mage, Healer, and Rogue armors
  • ShadowFlame Rogue helms

Merge Shop:

  • ShadowFlame Defender armor
  • 4 ShadowFlame Defender helms

Check back weekly to see if the bug you reported has been addressed.  Please remember that not all bugs are "easy fixes" so some reported and confirmed bugs from each week may not be on the fixed list as they will require more time or a different person to fix them.

If you would like to know how the reports go from you to fixed, check this page:

Now Available: Blacksmithing Update

This weekend, forge your own path!

An update that you all have long awaited is here- the Blacksmithing trade skill update! Now, heroes can visit Cysero’s forge in /battleontown to unlock all new enhancements and enhancement traits.

Back in April, you all donated a collective 1 TRILLION gold to let us know that you wanted a new and improved Blacksmithing rep. So, in response, we overhauled the rep faction, and gave it a number of rewards that everyone is sure to enjoy.

Once in the forge room, you can click the anvil to access a series of quests and shops to unlock these brand new enhancements. Here, you can:

  • Rank up Blacksmithing (now can reach rank 10!)
  • Unlock new Enhancements and Enhancement Traits
  • Apply your new enhancements for gold after unlocking them

Enhancement Traits?

This will be the name for all bonus effects and skills attached to enhancements. Similar to the Awe Enhancements, Blacksmithing enhancements will also have bonus effects and activate skills in certain conditions.

New Enhancement Pattern?

Along with the new Enhancement Traits is a brand new enhancement pattern- Forge! Similar to Wizard, Fighter, Thief, and so on, an enhancement pattern is what determines the stats your gear will provide. Forge is an extremely offensively-focused enhancement, providing primarily Luck, Strength, and Intellect.


How Do I Get Started?

Heroes can begin by finding a series of Blacksmithing Rep quests, where you’ll turn in materials or gold to increase your reputation. You’ll find that this rep takes longer than most- but the rewards are worth it!

Upon reaching certain ranks of Blacksmithing (and certain levels), you’ll be able to take on Forge Quests. These are long adventures to collect materials and story progress to unlock your new enhancements and enhancement traits.

There are two types of enhancements you can create: Weapon Enhancements and Cape Enhancements. The weapon forge quests can be done in any order, while the cape forge quests after Forge Enhancement must be done in order.

Weapon Enhancement Traits:

  • Forge Enhancement: unlocks the Forge enhancement pattern for weapons, requires rank 3, level 30, and completion of the Mobius questline to begin quest
  • Lacerate: a swift guaranteed critical strike that hinders your opponent, requires rank 4, level 40, and completion of the Mazumi quests in /greenguardwest to begin quest
  • Smite: an incredibly powerful strike, requires rank 6, level 60, and completion of the Sepulchure saga to begin quest
  • Valiance: a high increase to all of your core stats (multiplicative to other core stat buffs), requires rank 10, level 100, and completion of the Lord of Order quests to begin quest
  • Arcana’s Concerto: an ascending score that hurts your opponent and increases the damage they take (multiplicative to most defense reductions/damage taken increases), requires rank 10, level 100, and completion of the Astravia Saga to begin quest

Cape Enhancement Traits:

  • Forge Enhancement: unlocks the Forge enhancement pattern for capes, requires rank 3, level 30, and completion of the Yokai questline to begin quest
  • Absolution: a huge increase in your healing output at the cost of some damage, requires rank 9 and level 90 to begin quest
  • Vainglory: an increase in damage dealt at the cost of healing intake and dodge, requires rank 9 and level 90 to begin quest
  • Avarice: an increase in haste at the cost of defense and dodge, requires rank 9 and level 90 to begin quest

Weapon enhancement traits offer you a marked increase in power but are difficult to unlock. These are intended to be an alternative to Awe enhancement traits (with some being more powerful) that offer you more coverage and options in combat, and can be extremely powerful in the right situations.

Cape enhancement traits are for higher level players that wish to get the most out of their classes, and are willing to sacrifice some stats for another. These give you a positive benefit, but at the cost of losing stats somewhere else.

To learn more about the effects and numbers of enhancement traits, check out this guide!

In the future, we’d like to create more (and potentially helm and class enhancement traits), but we’d like to hear your thoughts first! Let us know what you think at @AQWorldsGame on Twitter, or on the Official Artix Games Discord!

Together with AQWorlds writer, Cylisse, they've crafted a ten-part tale that will leave you feeling both terrified *and* intrigued. This saga has been called one of the best in AdventureQuest Worlds... and the saga finale is here at last. 

Why end it? Because THIS story is complete. And Darkon wants to go out on... *cough* a high note. (We just HAD to include one more music pun. Now I'll give it a rest. A whole rest.)

Unlock the Flameborn Summoners

Available every year from July 1st - 31st

With Summer's heat blazing, the smartest heroes channel those flames into weapons! Our July Seasonal Set is the Flameborn + Underworld Summoner sets. Unlock the full set and character page badge when you buy the full pack, or talk to Garek in Battleon to get individual set pieces.

The Flameborn Summoner was forged in the heat of creativity by Darkon, with inspiration and input from the incredibly talented LHGart, Photoshop artist extraordinaire.

July Set: Flameborn + Underworld Summoner Sets

Starting Saturday, June 1st at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock the ShadowZard Mount and Rider set.

There are two ways to get the gear:

1) Total package: Buy the entire set directly through the website for $9.99 USD 

2) Individually: Buy each of the individual pieces from Garek the Traveling Gear Merchant in Battleon.

The total cost to buy all of the gear individually is 5,050 ACs, so getting all the gear from the pack is a pretty sweet deal. 

The set includes:

  • Flameborn Summoner armor
  • Underworld Summoner armor
  • 4 helms
  • 4 capes
  • 2 weapons
  • 2 pets
  • an exclusive character page badge

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as an upgrade bonus? 

Upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages; new bonus gear comes out roughly every month. Seasonal set packs are bought separately. Just like the Flame Dragon Warrior pack, you can buy the entire set directly, for one price, on our site. You can ALSO buy the individual pieces in-game.

This set will return EVERY June, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in upcoming years.

What if I just want ONE of the items?

You're in luck! Talk to Garek in Battleon. He'll be selling the individual pieces of the set through May 31st.

Where do I get my gear if I buy the full set through the website?

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.
