7 Deadly Dragons Epilogue

The Mysterious Egg Opens!

There are 7 deadly vices -- Wrath, Envy, Pride, Lust, Gluttony, Sloth, and Greed -- and 7 Great Dragons that embody them. In June of 2017, Galanoth and the Order of DragonSlayers asked for your help to cleanse our world of their terror. We were left with a very Mysterious Egg, but no way to discover what lived inside or why it was locked away... until tonight. Once you've completed the 7 Deadly Dragons Saga and opened the Heptagonal Chest, talk to LoreMaster Maya in /mysteriousegg to begin your quest to hatch it.

After you complete LoreMaster Maya's quests, unlock a shop with the 0 AC Shadow Dragon's Defender set!

* If you have not completed the 7 Deadly Dragons Saga, see the guide below for your first adventure in the Saga or check your Story Map in-game.

Open the Heptagonal Chest: Collect the 7 Deadly Keys 

Deep under the town of Battleon (/join battleundere), a Draconic Oracle breathes in the fumes of inspiration and divination. He will also direct you to find the Heptagonal Chest. He believes it holds an object that will help you towards your destiny, but cannot be sure. Defeat all seven of the Deadly Dragons to open the chest, and unlock the Elemental DragonSlayer set and the Mysterious Mana Egg pet!

(Need help finding Tai-Shar, the Draconic Oracle? Check out the wiki)

7 Deadly Dragons Saga Guide

Before you can unlock a prize, you have to battle to EARN it! Complete the 7 Deadly Dragons Saga to start tonight's update.

Ashfall Camp: /Join Ashfallcamp and talk to Galanoth to learn about the 7 Deadly Dragons you must defeat.

  • Quest for QuarterMaster Senna to stock the camp
  • Defend Ashfall with Gibbs
  • Learn Draconic Lore with DragonSlayer Loremaster Dedara*
  • and talk to Galanoth to slay three fiery dragons with Galanoth as you warm-up for the adventures ahead!

Glutus, Dragon of Gluttony (/join gluttony)

Glutus, Dragon of Gluttony, has terrorized men — especially DragonSlayers — for far too long. NO DragonSlayer has managed to survive bathe with him, and Galanoth is making this bathe personal. After years of gorging, and eating thousands of heroes, knights, and 'Slayers, it's time for Glutus to go on a DIE-t!

Valsarian, Dragon of Pride (/join pride)

For millennia, dragons were the greatest creatures on Lore… until humans came. Until DragonSlayers came. Battle to save Darkmoor Village, the first town Valsarian's Storm Drakel army has conquered as he begins his press to turn humans into slaves... and Dragons into KINGS! 

Goregold, the Dragon of Greed (/join greed)

Dragons invade, kill, and most importantly --they hoard. Each dragon guards a vast treasure trove of gold, gems, and priceless artifacts... all very, very tempting for any thieves foolish enough to risk their wrath. But when evidence appears of a rogue DragonSlayer stealing from dragon hoards for his own benefit, Galanoth needs your help to uncover the truth.

Phlegnn, the Dragon of Sloth (/join sloth)

Dragons. Zombies. Creepy slime creatures. Its easy to fight monsters you can see. The real danger, however, is an invisible sickness spreading through the village of Gisunt Heights. Lim the Scientist has traced the outbreak to its source. Take out Phlegnn, Slime Dragon of Sloth and fine a cure for the plague before it spreads beyond the quarantine zone!

Lascivia, the Dragon of Lust (/join lust)

Deep inside a fortress, hidden from sight and out of reach of the family who would seek to reclaim them... Lascivia, Dragon of Lust feasts and frolics and delights in the antics of the kidnapped, enchanted princes and princesses - her royal horde hoard!  Battle to aid Princess Cecily in her quest to free her fiance and rescue the other members of Lascivia's Hoard'em!

Maloth, the Dragon of Envy (/join dragoncrown)

Dragons of all elements and races know the legend of the Dragon Crown - only one worth of ruling ALL dragonkind can wear it. Most assumed it was just a myth... until now. Maleth, the Darkness Dragon of Envy, wants the crown. YOU need to stop him from getting it.

Gorgorath, the Dragon of Wrath (/join Wrath)

While searching for the treasure of Evil Eye Grim, Captain Rhubarb awakened the mighty undead dragon, Gorgorath. Now, to protect your friend, you'll need to take on Gorgorath's horde of minions!

Double Holiday Celebration

Log in and battle for Korin's Happy Bag Helm!

Bag yourself a new helm this weekend! Korin is one of the craziest, most belovedly-wacky team members and characters in our games. Known for always wearing a paper bag on his head, he is currently the lead animator for AdventureQuest 3D and a regular streamer on Artix's Twitch channel. When one of Korin's followers on Twitter* suggested we celebrate National Brown Bag it Day players on social media recently suggested we celebrate Korin today... players** and team members alike knew we couldn't pass up the opportunity.

Log in and battle Marianus in the /natatorium for a chance to get your own Korin's Happy Bag Face helm in AdventureQuest Worlds. Then watch our Twitch Channel for Korin's streams (where he gives away even more bag designs in AdventureQuest 3D)!

* Bagtastic idea, TonyVirgo!

Shadows of War: Pirate Queen's Favor

The ShadowLord is coming to collect

Last week, we survived and encounter with Teja the Pirate Queen. She is one of the fierce, independent warriors Malgor has recruited to his side, but in restoring her lost crew, we've won a favor. A SMALL favor. She will not turn you in to collect the ShadowLord's bounty, but there's plenty of treachery to go around. This weekend, fight to stay alive and uncaptured as Pirate Queen Teja's crew shows their true colors... and go after the ShadowLord's real prize!

The story so far...

After Malgor the Shadowlord failed to recruit you into his Army, tried to imprison you, AND accused you of killing the Queen of Monsters, two things became very clear. HE cannot be trusted and YOU need to take action against him.  FAST.

The Queen of Monsters seemed content to let her children and allies wreak havoc in her name. But Malgor is actively recruiting people to take over our world. And ALL the worlds.  That means we need to start gathering our allies and power now, and preventing him from doing the same.

You have already added Varga, Goddess of War, to your party, and reawakened a small part of your power again. But you will need to hone it further before you will be able to reach all of the people we need.  Last week, we began the quest for our next ally -- Teja, the Pirate Queen of the southern seas. 

  • She is known for being fearless, and loyal to her crew.
  • She put out her own eye, and had it alchemically transformed into an enchanted gemstone orb that turns people to stone.
  • Malgor is wants her to be his ally... which means there must be a VERY good reason to prevent that.

BlackSea Booty

Battle the zone boss in this weekend's story update to unlock the pieces of the Monstrous Pirate armor set.

Loot in /GraniteCove

  • Blacksea Pirate set drops from monsters 
  • Blacksea Captain set drops from the boss monster 
  • Bloodsea Captain set and Blacksea Pirate Disguise are available from a shop after completing the story

The Shadows of War Story Continues in June...

Pirate Queen Teja is only the first of many allies we'll need if we want to take on ShadowLord Malgor... and WIN. Next week, we launch the epilogue of the 7 Deadly Dragons Saga with the opening of the Mysterious Egg. Then, in June, we'll return to the Shadows of War Saga to check in our Empress Miko, our current allies, and quest for more help.

Become a Legion Revenant

The Tier 2 Dark Caster Class is HERE

Back in March, we announced a Tier 2 version of the Dark Caster Class. Since then, Pisces and the class balancec team have been hard at work crafting a class worthy of the Undead Legion (among all of their other balance, testing, and planning contributions). The Legion Revenant Class is dark, powerful, and fit for the Legion's most loyal and mighty warriors. 

If you are a member of the Undead Legion AND have any of the Dark Caster Classes, you can /join revenant to begin the quest to create the Legion Revenant Class. 

For those of you in the Undead Legion that did NOT get the Infinite Dark Caster Class for Legion Tokens, you're in Luck! We've added the Class back to the Undead Legion Merge Shop this weekend as a special gift from Dage the Evil. (Will he add it to the shop permanently?... wait and see!)

Legion Revenant Quest Details

Legion Revenant farming quests will resemble the old Legion Exercise quests-- the balance team has crunched numbers and has one things to say...  Are you willing to slay a legion for the Legion?

  • Talk to the Legion Revenant in /revenant to begin his quests

Wizard enhancements will allow you to deal the most damage and heal the most with your HoT, allowing you to survive longer than using full luck.Any sort of damage boosting weapon with Spiral Carve or Mana Vamp Awe Enhancements will greatly improve the performance of this class.Very strong willpower will be necessary in order to obtain this class-- no need to go insane on your journey of showing the legion you have guts, take breaks on this long journey heroes.

The Memes are HERE!

Meme (not May-May) Rares Shop Now Available

Gear up to celebrate May, the month of mermaids, massive TV show finales, and now... Memes! Find the all-new Master of Memes armor set and other meme-tastic items in your Game Menu until June 7th.

Crafted by Noir and Darkon, two of the coolest artists to surf the internet, these items will make your friends (and your enemies) say WHUT. (Until the shop goes rare, and then they'll say... WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE?!) Just like a meme's impact only lasts for so long, the items in this shop will only be available for a limited time.

Memes*... WHUT?

If you're reading this on the internet (and 99.99% of you are), then you're probably familiar with "internet memes." A meme is something -- usually a piece of media, and often funny or catchy --  that spreads rapidly across the internet. Memes spread becacuse they're a very effective way to spread ideas from person to person (think of them like an "idea virus").

This site has a great, easy to understand explanation. Why not makeuseof it?

Our homage to memes contains some of our artists (and your) favorite plays on popular concepts and ideas. 

The shop contains:

  • Master of Memes armor
  • Meme Ripper scythe
  • Meme Master hair and locks
  • WAT Flail
  • Omae wa mou shindeiru… Nani? cape
  • Shindeiru morph helms
  • Glaring glasses morph helms
  • Whut face morph helms
  • Pikadragon helm and pet
  • Pepecundus morph helm
  • Menacing Aura cape
  • ULTRA Overpowered Hair helm
  • Papa the ArchFiend morph helm
  • Papa the Sneevil morph helm
  • STOP watch mace
  • You Died! cape
  • Megalomaniac morph helm

Feels Good, Hero.

This one's for all you heavy-hitters looking to SHINE. Find the GrandPapa the Golden sneevil morph helm in your Game Menu until June 7th. (The regular Papa the Sneevil morph helm will also be available for 2,000,000 gold.) Once you buy this helm, you can merge it into a 0 AC version in Vinara's Odds Shop in /battleontown for free storage. (But once you do, you cannot get the gold back, so be sure!)

Shadows of War: Teja the Pirate Queen

Quest to Ally with the Pirate Queen

The War of Shadows is far from over. Malgor, the leader of the ShadowFlame Army, brought an army to your world. He said YOU were responsible for the Queen of Monsters's death. He sees you as a threat, and was ready to imprison you if you did not agree to help him. All of these facts point to one thing... Shadowlord Malgor cannot be trusted. 

After all of the chaos the Queen of Monsters wreaked, it is clear that you cannot sit back and deal with smaller threats to the world. That means we need to start gathering two things NOW: allies and power.

You have already added Varga, Goddess of War, to your party, and reawakened a small part of your power again. But you will need to hone it further before you will be able to reach all of the people we need. Some of them are quite far from us in time, or in space, or both.

This week, we start close to home. Varga has tasked you with a quest: to recruit Teja, the Pirate Queen of the southern seas. 

  • She is known for being fearless, and loyal to her crew.
  • She put out her own eye, and had it alchemically transformed into an enchanted gemstone orb that turns people to stone.
  • Malgor is wants her to be his ally... which means there must be a VERY good reason to prevent that.

This week, you'll need to fight to earn the trust of Teja the Pirate Queen and avoid becoming HER captive.

BlackSea Booty

Battle through tonight's story update in Granite Cove to unlock the pieces of the BlackSea Pirate, BlackSea Captain, and BloodSea Captain armor sets!

  • Blacksea Pirate set drops from monsters in this week's zone
  • Blacksea Captain set drops from this week's boss monster
  • Bloodsea Captain set and Blacksea Pirate Disguise are available from a shop after completing the story

Teja's Story Continues...

Before you met her, Shadowlord Malgor convinced Teja the Pirate Queen that it was in her best interest to capture you. That allying with him was the only way she could guarantee clear skies and safe sailing for her crew. Next week, log in and fight to understand WHY Shadowlord Malgor wanted Pirate Queen Teja on his side.

New: Void Pirate Armor Sets

Available in the Wheel of Doom merge shop!

The Wheel of Doom spins round and round... and this week, as we quest to gain our first ally against Malgor the ShadowLord, we have an all-new set for the Wheel of Doom: the Void Pirate armors! 

Find the gear in the Wheel of Doom merge shop! 

  • Void Pirate Destroyer armor
  • Void Pirate armor
  • Void Pirate's Hood
  • Void Pirate's Dagger
  • Void Pirate's Cutlass
  • Void Pirate's Anchor cape
  • Void Destroyer's Blade

Get your Free Spins

Everyone loves to get prizes... and that's why we brought back back free spins for the Wheel of Doom!

  • Members get one free spin a day while their upgrade is active
  • All players get one free spin a week. 

See the Free Spins Design Notes for more details.

Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness

We've gotten a lot of really positive feedback after introducing the free spins... but also a lot of you who wanted 1) a way to make sure you got an Item of Donated Awesomeness and 2) kept spinning in a quest to get the Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness to drop from the Wheel... and then not didn't get it.

That's why we introduced the Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness. This item is available from the Doom Merge Shop, so even if you don't receive the EIoDA as a bonus prize, you can save up your Treasure Potions and get the PIoDA.

Important Points

  • The PIoDA will be a Wheel of Doom merge shop exclusive. 
  • Cost: 1,000 Treasure Potions. 
  • You can get both the EIoDA (from the Wheel) and the PIoDA (from the merge shop)
  • The PIoDA currently stacks up to x5. We are currently planning to raise the cap later this year.

At a cost of 1,000 Treasure Potions, that means a member who ONLY uses their one free spin per day/week will need to log in every day for about 2.5 years to get it... but they WILL get it eventually. 

* Exceptions include staff personal items, custom weapon contest prizes, HeroMart items, etc

Infernal Shadow Lord set changes

Earlier this year, we added the Infernal Shadow Lord armor set into the Wheel of Doom. Due to an issue with the armor's set-up, duplicate versions of it were dropping for a short time. We have removed the entire set from the Wheel of Doom. It is now only available through the Wheel of Doom merge shop.

Tonight: A Game of Groans

Arena Battles are Coming...

This weekend, we celebrate Mother's Day... and the next episode of Game of Thrones. The Mother of Dragons (Danaerys) is about to unleash a reign of fire on an icy world. We're doing our part to combat the cold by bringing you a host of cool farming items, parody gear, and new battles to keep your blade (and wits) sharp.

This weekend, log in and head to /snowmore, a region deep in the Northlands. Find Wher'ya Dark, an Assassin of the Silent Sisterhood. She waits for you with more information about the BlightStalkers, a race of magical, icy creatures that can twist any warm-blooded animal (or human) into a mindless fright. Battle captive 'stalkers and their frights inside the arena to earn faction house banners, pets, and other icy gear.

Faction House Banners

In the Northlands (like much of the rest of Lore), everyone belongs to a family, a clan, a house, or a guild, and shows their allegiance with house banners. It pays to surround yourself with people you can trust. If you’d like to represent your faction, slay the monsters in the arena, and Wher'ya will help you craft your own.

New: Crypto Creator Farming Set

What happens when you combine the efforts of a wicked-talented artist (Noire) and Artix's crazy-creative video editor (Zarat)? We get a super-charged, futurist armor set available in /thespan for a limited time only! Starting tonight, find Zarat the Crypto Commander and complete his quests to unlock the Crypto Creator armor set.

Featured Gear Shop: BlightSlayer + Mother's Day

The BlightSlayer armor set will keep you warm in the winter, safe in battle, and looking way cooler than the hero next to you as you chill in Yulgar's Inn swapping victory stories. Find all the set pieces in your Featured Gear Shop until May 31st.

Also available in the Featured Gear Shop -- our seasonal Mother's Day items return! Show your mom how much you love her by doing something nice for her in real life (then giving her a few minutes of peace by logging into AQWorlds and checking out the gear shop).

Tier 2 Dark Caster Class: Member-only Test

Back in March, we announced a Tier 2 version of the Dark Caster Class. Since then, Pisces and the class balancec team have been hard at work crafting a class worthy of the Undead Legion (among all of their other balance, testing, and planning contributions). The Legion Revenant Class is dark, powerful, and fit for the Legion's most loyal and mighty warriors. 

If you have an upgraded account, you can try out the skills RIGHT NOW and let Pisces (our lead class designer) know what you think! The skills may change based on player feedback... so if you want to have a hand in fine-tuning our newest class, now's your chance!

Find the class in the Featured Gear Shop!

Get all the class details in the Design Notes here: Class Skills Post then log in and find a Double Class Points boost all weekend long! This boost will be available for everyone, but will help all you members rank up the class faster.

AQWorlds Patch Notes

Check the list of bug fixes to see what the team has addressed

Reens, Cemaros and the AQW Bug Hunter team are busy squashing the bugs you submit each week to the Bug Tracker at

Please do not send non-release bugs on Twitter.  They will get lost.  Make sure you send bug report forms!

Check back weekly to see if the bug you reported has been addressed.  Please remember that not all bugs are "easy fixes" so some reported and confirmed bugs from each week may not be on the fixed list as they will require more time or a different person to fix them.

If you would like to know how the reports go from you to fixed, check this page:

Bug Fixes:

  • Removed random spawns from /moonyardb.
  • Fixed the drops off the Hollow Wraiths for the quest ‘A Gesture Of Evil’.

    Art Fixes:

    • Shadow Void Shogun helms darkened to match the armour.


    The Chromium Canister and Titanium Trove have been removed from the Book of Lore shops.  After considering player feedback, we have decided to get these items out of the free items shop. If you have the badge for either the Void ChronoKnight Set or the Northlands Royalty set, you can now see new buttons with Vinara in /curio.  These buttons will allow you to purchase the Chromium Canister or the Titanium Trove for 6,000 ACs and allow you access to the tier 2 shops.

    Account Spam Update

    We are working on a fix for this issue

    Over the last few weeks, some of you may have received random whispers from accounts with strange usernames, or seen odd messages in chat.

    Our programmers, security testers, and bug hunters have already been hard at work releasing fixes (which stopped the issue for a time), but are now putting together and testing additional fixes as new spam accounts are created.

    Programmers are working on deeper, fuller changes to the server, with a current ETA for launch tomorrow.

    In the short-term, if you see these accounts in-game, please /ignore and report them and an admin will remove them.

    Shadows of War: When Dragons Rage

    The War for the Queen of Monsters is NOT over

    Last week, we faced Malgor the ShadowLord's army as we fought to storm the Queen of Monsters' castle. What happened after the war was explosive. And if you have been following the Queen's Saga, very unexpected. Now, after refusing to ally with the ShadowLord, we face an eternity imprisoned by his shadows... unless we can escape!

    This weekend, battle alongside Varga the WarFury as you attempt to escape Malgor's army and his newly-conquered castle.

    ... Who is Varga, the WarFury?


    She is Varga, Goddess of War.* Though this is the first time we have met her, she has known your hero since you they were born. Your drive to fight in defense of Lore is a gift from her... indeed, all of this world’s greatest warriors have felt her divine inspiration.

    * There is much we should learn about the Goddess of War. And about being the Dragon of Time. Titles are tricky things.

    The Queen's Finale is only the beginning 

    This war will change the course of history, and the fate of our world. And you. As the Eternal Dragon of Time, you hold a greater power than most of the beings in this Universe. There are others out there with powers to match yours, and you will encounter some of them over the course of this saga. But not today.

    Today, you must fight to reach the Queen of Monsters. We are leading up to a pivotal point in time, where we discover her fate... and yours. Only by entering her throne room can the story REALLY begin. 

    And, as we've come to expect with the Queen of Monsters... things are getting a liiiiiittle Chaotic. Because we're really starting at the end. As you battle through the chapters of the Queen of Monsters' finale saga that take place over the coming months, you will...

    • Fight to learn more about the Queen of Monsters' ultimate fate
    • Unlock the powers you've lost, and some you've yet to discover
    • Uncover the truth about the Queen's newest adversary

    The allies you'll meet, new gods you'll encounter, and the enemies you face -- everything that happens from this moment on will lead you towards your destiny. Towards a decision only YOU can make.

    The future is now. It is Time for the Queen of Monsters' Finale Saga to begin.
