Not sure who Nulgath is? Read on!
Nulgath the ArchFiend is the in-game persona for Nulgath-the-team-member, one of AQWorlds' original artists. Though he no longer works regularly for Artix Entertainment, his art style (prevalent in early AQW and featured in Oversoul) and the character itself remain hugely popular with many of our long-time heroes. To recognize their dedication and the love they feel for his character and art style, we hold an event in-game each year to celebrate
Class Update: Arachnomancer Changes + more
Significant reworks to better align the class’s damage types, desired stats, and give it a playstyle. Cooldowns were significantly reduced overall, making the class play much faster. Original niches have not significantly changed, but the class now functions as a strong mid-game high dodge solo class that can scale into early endgame.
This class presented an interesting challenge in design- it was already strong (if underappreciated), and aligning its damage types and stat model would have made it far too powerful. A light redesign gave it a new way to play while still being usable the same way it was before, allowing it to now function with 100%+ dodge, and encouraging more interaction from the player.
