15th Birthday AdventureCoin Bonus
Get 50% more AdventureCoins as Our Holiday AC Bonus Begins
Talk about a birthday surprise! Normally, our Holiday AdventureCoin bonus doesn't begin until November, but we've been flooded with requests to start early.* Get your /party on and get 50% more bonus AdventureCoins with any AC or membership package.
* If you bought a membership or AC pack between September 29th, 2023 and today, Captain Rhubarb has already awarded your bonus ACs, too!
Get 60,000 ACs while our Holiday Bonus is on!
During our 2023 Holiday AdventureCoin bonus, get 60,000 ACs for $99.95 (that's 20,000 ACs more than normal!) and unlock your choice of upgrade bonus pack, 15x Rep, Gold, Class Points, and XP server boosts, and the Mythic Item of Digital Awesomeness (IoDA).
Mythic Item of Digital Awesomeness?!
The Mythic Item of Digital Awesomeness (or MIoDA for short) is a miscellaneous item you will get by purchasing the 40k AdventureCoin pakage. Like the other IoDA items, it allows you to choose any item in the game when you redeem it through your Account Manager.
How to Claim your MIoDA Prize
Make sure you have a confirmed email address attached to your game account, and then follow these steps:
- Decide on the item you want
- Log into your Account Manager
- Click on the "Awesome Prizes" link on the sidebar
- You'll see a list of the IoDA tokens you have available
- Choose from a list of ALL the eligible item rewards
- You'll be taken to a verification page to confirm your choice
That's right! Several times each year, we have bonus AdventureCoin offers, where we'll increase the amount of ACs you get with each pack. (example: Summer, Back to School, and during the holidays). Bonus amounts and dates may change from year to year, so keep an eye on the Design Notes and social media for more news of future bonuses.
Support AQWorlds and Become a Legend!
Starting now, upgrade your account with any membership to become a 15th Upholder. You'll instantly unlock a bounty of exclusive items and perks. We always say that we make AdventureQuest Worlds for and with you. It would not be what it is today without the trust and confidence of the original Founders and early Upholders... and we would not be able to build what comes next without your support now.
History of Founders and Upholders
15 years ago, in 2008, AdventureQuest Worlds went live. A legion of passionate AdventureQuest Guardians and DragonFable DragonLords joined us on a new game-making journey. The early support of those Founders kept AQWorlds free for everyone to play. In recognition of their trust and confidence, every October we host a new Upholder promotion to reward other heroes who support the game's development.

15th Upholder Star Swords
The 15th Upholder Star Swords are based on fan-favorite NPCs from AdventureQuest Worlds.
- Artix's StarSword of Destiny **
- Zhoom's Sandsea Ranger Star Sword
- Dage's Underworld Star Sword
- Warlic's Blue Mage Star Sword
- Beleen's Pink Hearts Star Sword
- Cysero's Green Mage Star Sword ***
- Gravelyn's Star Sword of DOOM
- Galanoth's DragonSlayer Star Sword
- J6's BountyHunter Star Sword
- Grimskull's DungeonMaster Star Sword
A while back, I polled my followers on Twitter to see which NPCs were among the most popular. We based a number of our Talk Like a Pirate Day armor sets as well as this year's Star Swords on those results. Thank you for your suggestions and feedback!
* Only memberships count towards 15th Upholder.
** The original sword from DragonFable (shown below) will be available separately in the future. It was included as part of Artix's Star Sword as a special bonus for 15th Upholders.
