Everything you need to know, right here, right now!
Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend—and from all the positive feedback on our Twitters and Facebook, everyone LOVED Friday’s release!
You think last week was epic? Just wait until this Friday’s newest release. It’s totally going to blow your socks off… even if you aren’t wearing any!
Arriving Friday: Cultural Celebrations!
As you may know from my previous Design Notes post, Carnaval begins this Friday, February 8th. Carnaval is the largest party in the world… and it’s coming to AdventureQuest Worlds!
Carnaval is the most joyous time of the year. Thousands of people will gather in the brand-new Terra da Festa map and dance down the streets of the Sambódromo. Everyone dresses up in fantastic costumes festooned in feathers, headdresses, and masks. But that’s not all—the Carnaval event will feature:
- Lots of Items, both Rare and permanent
- Carnaval storyline
- Brazil Mythology Monsters
- Rio de Janeiro-inspired Map
- Day and Nighttime versions of Map
- New NPCs
- Carnaval music
- Member-only Quests
- Special surprises for Paymentez players
- Paymentez-exclusive Quests
- English and Portuguese translations, courtesy of Tendou no Mazo
Get ready to Festa like never before!

Last Chance for Golden Plate
1 Year Upgrade Package Bonus Items Leaving!
Blind your opponents with the gleam of your gear! Upgrade your account with a 1 Year Membership Package before the Golden Plate set leaves... forever! The package comes with the bonus Golden Plate armor, helm, cape, and weapon AND 7,000 Bonus Adventure Coins.
And later this week, the Golden Plate Set will be replaced by...
The Jade Samurai set!
Command the battlefield and control thousands of warriors as a Jade Samurai, one of the Yokai's most-skilled military commanders! Long honored across Lore for their battle prowess, the Jade Samurai is also one of the highest ranks in the Emperor of Yokai's elite personal guard!
And we thought you'd like a behind-the-scenes look at just how such an epic armor is created! In the picture below, you see how he's got reference pictures of a samurai armor, and then also an image of jade, to get a feel for the colors in the stone.
Because we received MANY requests to switch the items attached to the one year package more frequently, this set will not be available as long as the Golden Plate Set was.
Thank you for supporting us by purchasing Memberships and AdventureCoins! We can't wait to work with every Good, Evil, (and Chaotic?!) Hero in Lore to make 2013 the most explosively amazingyear in AQWorlds' history!
