Who will YOU fight for?
Fire, Water, Wind and Earth… and Desoloth! War has come to Etherstorm and the DragonPlane! Choose a side; fight for Good, Evil or Desoloth in AQW’s first 3-sided war and battle to decide a whole realm’s destiny. The winning side will determine Desoloth’s fate… and affect the end of the Chaos storyline!
Make sure you’re up to date in the Etherstorm storyline to understand everything that’s happening, but if you aren’t caught up, you’ll still be able to battle. (You’ll just be a bit confused at some of the life-altering events that have happened to the characters!)
What did you do to make Omom so ANGRY?!
The choice is yours, Hero! Will you fight for Good, Evil or Desoloth? Only ONE side can win this war, and whichever one does will determine Desoloth’s fate… and will have an impact on the end of the Chaos storyline in the future!
Dracomancer, AC Grenadier Classes!
Dragons. Magic. What more could a fantasy-loving game player want? Loosely based on the class from AdventureQuest Classic, we’ve given the armor and skills an epic AQWorlds twist to keep things fresh and unique!
Check out Thursday’s Design Notes post from Cysero to get an idea of the Dracomancer Class’s skills! On Friday you’ll be able to purchase the class from Itzachi in Battleon for 2,000 ACs or from any of the Etherstorm Priests if you’ve achieved rank 10 in Etherstorm rep!
And MEMBERS can now purchase the SkyGuard Grenadier Class for 2,000 ACs, as well! Talk to Itzachi in Battleon!
Etherstorm War Rewards!
One of the BEST things about wars is all the awesome rewards, and the Etherstorm battle won’t be any different! We’ve got a host of excellent war merge rewards, and each sidewill have its own gear to earn! But don’t worry, if you like the look of another side’s rewards, YOU can earn them, too. You’ll just have to battle that side’s monsters to earn the required merge items!

Will you fight for Good, Evil, or... Desoloth?
Kill Desoloth... or kill dragons FOR Desoloth! Drunk with power and the anarchy he has caused, Desoloth the Final is finished waiting. The time has come to make his move on Etherstorm, but the battlefield is far from where you've been fighting!
This portal transports you between Lore and the DragonPlane.
Fire, Water, Air and Earth all join together in the DragonPlane, and at their center - the Cor Draconis. The heart of the Plane and the heart of elemental dragons, it is imbued with eons of draconic power. And it's the only place secure enough to hold Desoloth now that he is this powerful!
Do not be distracted by the beauty; death is present in every stone.
But his downfall and imprisonment in the Cor Draconis is far from a sure thing. Those who choose Evil may feel that his attacks merit more punishment than just imprisonment. And for those who choose to fight on Desoloth's side... his freedom and rise to power is the only goal.
Paths to the boss battle frame and the Cor Draconis will only unlock at 100%!
But how easy accomplishing that goal will be when Drakath has turned his attention to Etherstorm's anarchy remains to be seen!
The choice is yours. War comes to Etherstorm THIS Friday!
- 3 sides to choose from! Fight for Good, Evil, or Desoloth!
- Battle Chaorrupted Elemental Thunderbirds OR Elemental dragons!
- Winning side determines the outcome of the war!*
- Winning side will affect the final battle against Chaos!
- Unlock a cutscene starring Galanoth at 50% on the war meter!
- Epic War Rares shop! (leaves at the end of the war)
- War Merge shop! (permanent content)
- Members will receive double resource drops from the member-only merge quests!
* All 3 endings are written, but YOU will pick which one we animate and which becomes storyline canon based on the war's victor!
Dracomancer Class coming THIS FRIDAY!
Cysero and Yorumi are hard at work designing and coding the Dracomancer class. Dage just came in with a concept sketch and it is pretty awesome! Cysero's Dracomancer skills writeup will come later this week!
