Darkon's Finale Reward Gear

After such a rousing performance, Darkon wanted to leave you wanting JUST a bit more. That's why after you unlock this weekend's rewards, you'll be able to evolve several of them NEXT weekend, when the Ultra Boss battle arrives. For now, though... read on to see what rewards await!

Merge Shop Gear:

  • Darkon's Debris 1 armor
  • Darkon's Debris 2 (Recovered) axe
  • Darkon's Hair and Morph helms
  • Astravia Castle Past I 
  • Astravia Castle Present I 

Both the Astravia Castle Past / Present I Houses require the Astravia Castle House dropped by La in /astraviajudge. Next weekend, you'll be able to evolve them into the Astravia Castle Past II House and Astravia Castle Present II House. Then, take your home event further by merging them to create a version of the house that lets you swap between the backgrounds. (Both the expanded Astravia Castle Past II House and Astravia Castle Present II House include a color-customization room.)

  • Ring Of Creation (can be evolved next weekend)
  • House Guest Re
  • House Guest Mi

Even more house guests will be available in early July as Daily Login gift drops, too!

Darkon's Chorus: Curtain Call

Over two years ago, we first ventured into the dark, deadly and, in all honesty, horrifyingly nightmarish shadows of AdventureQuest Worlds' artist, Darkon's mind. Together with AQWorlds writer, Cylisse, they've crafted a ten-part tale that will leave you feeling both terrified *and* intrigued. This saga has been called one of the best in AdventureQuest Worlds... and the saga finale is here at last. 

Why end it? Because THIS story is complete. And Darkon wants to go out on... *cough* a high note. (We just HAD to include one more music pun. Now I'll give it a rest. A whole rest.)
