Happy Lunar New Year, Heroes!

Get Ready to /Party... Yokai Style

Lunar New Year Yokai Isle blends many cultural elements from Asian countries across our world to create one of the most popular zones in-game. Earlier this month, all our seasonal Lunar New Year events in Akiba returned. THIS week, we've got an all-new Lunar New Year event and rewards for you to fight for! 

Log in this weekend and talk to Empress Miko in /akibacny to hunt for the very rare and special Etokōun Yokai. It symbolizes the Zodiac in its entirety and is known to bring a year of good luck and fortune to those that can keep it captured for a full day!

And don't miss the rest of this month's update. See the full release lineup here: AdventureQuest Worlds calendar.

Reminder: Yokai Classes Updated

If you didn't hear the news earlier this month, we updated two Yokai-themed classes: Imperial Chunin and DragonSoul Shinobi Classes! The rare Chunin and Dragon Shinobi CLASS SKILLS have returned paired with new art so that ALL players can enjoy the gameplay. Previously debuting as AQW 2012 and 2013 Birthday rares, Chunin and Dragon Shinobi skill sets return to Akiba!

 Previously revamped, the newest versions of these two classes are now permanently reintroduced to the game.

The Imperial Chunin class and set requires Rank 10 Yokai, and can be purchased from Announcer Guy in /dragonkoiz. A new Classic Chunin armor is available for anyone with the original 2012 Chunin class. If you have the original class, talk to Sadanobu in /akiba to unlock the new variant.

The DragonSoul Shinobi class and set can be earned from Miko in /shadowfortress using Orochi's Scales after defeating Jaaku in the Shogun of Shadows saga.
