January Seasonal Set: ArchFiend OverLord

Available every year from January 1st - 31st

January is a month of new beginnings and birthdays in AQWorlds! To help ALL our heroes celebrate the new year and Nulgath's birthday, this month's seasonal set features the ArchFiend OverLord. 

January Set: ArchFiend OverLord

Starting now, unlock the ArchFiend OverLord armor and all its accessories!

There are two ways to get the gear:

1) Total package: Buy the entire set directly through the website for $9.99 USD 

2) Individually: Buy each of the individual pieces from Garek the Traveling Gear Merchant in Battleon.

The total cost to buy all of the gear individually is 5,400 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Northern Wanderers pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 3,400 ACs).

The set includes:

  • ArchFiend OverLord Armor
  • 5 helms 
  • 7 capes
  • 7 weapons
  • character page badge

Seasonal Set Details

Each month, we'll feature a new set, available only during that month every year. 

Seasonal Sets
January: ArchFiend OverLord
February: Obsidian Samurai
March: Legion Warseeker
April: Bio-War Cultist
May: Lord of the J-Sixth + Lightning Lich Lord
June: ShadowZard Mount + Rider
July: Flameborn + Underworld Summoner
August: Urban Assassins
September: Celestial Naval Commander
October: ChronoStriker
November: Harvest Hunters
December: Northern Wanderer

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as the monthly upgrade bonus? 

Monthly upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages. Seasonal set packs are bought separately. Just like the Flame Dragon Warrior pack, you can buy the entire set directly, for one price, on our site. You can ALSO buy the individual pieces in-game.

This set will return EVERY January, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in 2019, or 2020, or 2021, etc.

What if I just want ONE of the items?

You're in luck! Talk to Garek in Battleon. He'll be selling the individual pieces of the set through January 31st.

Where do I get my gear if I buy the full set through the website?

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.

SnowStalker Treasure Chest Set

Now Available in Twilly's Treasure Chest!

Twilly's feeling a bit chilly this New Year's Eve, so he's stocked his Treasure Chests with a new set to keep you warm all winter long: the SnowStalker set! Farm for Treasure Chests as you fight through the game, then open them with his Treasure Chest Keys for a chance to get the gear inside. 

If you have found a Treasure Chest on a monster, you will need a Magic Treasure Chest Key to open it! If you need a key, Twilly is selling some for 200 ACs. If you have everything you need, just click Open My Chest, complete the quest and see what you got!

Open a Treasure Chest for a chance to get 1 of...

  • 50+ armors
  • 70+ weapons
  • 90+ helms
  • 15+ capes
  • or 3 house items (including the Altar of Caladbolg)
  • Plus the pieces of the new SnowStalker armor set 

Member Perk: Upgrade your account with any membership to get 2 free Treasure Chest Keys a month! Complete Twiilly's quest on or after the 1st of every month to get your free keys, but don't forget to come back or you'll miss out!

Treasure Chests?

There is a small chance to get a mysterious Treasure Chest as a reward drop when you battle ANY monster in-game. Have you found one yet?

Treasure chests are a fun - but completely optional - way to get exclusive items in AdventureQuest Worlds. The chests have a less than 1% chance of dropping from ANY monster in the entire game. Each one contains one of over 215 epic items that you can't get anywhere else (and the number will keep growing)!

  • All of the items are 0 AC so you can store them for free 
  • All of the items are non-member so you can use them forever

There's just one problem. You can't open the Treasure Chests without a Magic Key. The good news is that Twilly (the little red Moglin in Battleon) has a few extras and will happily sell you one for 200 ACs and open your chest for you.

Monthly Membership Perk Arrives Wednesday, December 1st

Members, log in and talk to Twilly this Sunday to claim your two FREE treasure chest keys! Collect treasure chests as you battle through Lore, then use the keys to open them for new free items. 

Want to get in on this?

Upgrade your AdventureQuest Worlds character with any membership package to unlock two free Treasure Chest Keys for each month the membership is active.

* We will begin updating the treasure chest rewards again on a regular basis, so if you've already collected all the gear... get ready to unlock more in the near future!

We hope you're having a fantastic holiday with your family and friends! Thank you for battling alongside us throughout 2021,and for supporting us with through purchasing Memberships and AdventureCoins! We've got plans for an amazing, crazy, and AWESOME 2022, and I can't wait to battle alongside you all as we build it together!

2020: Chronocide (Killing Time...)

Battle your way through the first adventure of 2021 as you race to stop the rogue Chronomancer, Au'eir, from releasing the Chronocide and destroying time itself!

2019: The Chrono Phoenix Rises

The Chrono-Phoenix is a part-organic, part-mechanical creature created to track the cyclical death and re-birth of the year. But its gears are going haywire, and if you don't help Lucca the Chronomancer fix it, 2020 might NEVER arrive!

 

2018: A Chilling Tale

A new year dawns for the Yetis of EverFrost Valley, and a new generation of their warriors is ready to undergo an ancient rite to welcome the new year. You are the first human ever invited to join in the ritual slaying of the ice spirit Chillbite, Guardian of the Valley. On December 29th, celebrate the new year with your new tribe… if you survive!

2017: Archive of Time

Corruption will result in alteration of existing persons, places, and things in Lore. Correction required before countdown expires or changes will become per-pe- *static* SIGNAL LOST.

2016: Future of Fear

2016 is starting off with a bang.. and blasts… and an attack on Northpointe by the Queen of Monsters’ new Captain, Goregrim! The forces of Good, Evil, and Chaos will need to come together, or Northpointe WILL fall!

2015: A Monstrous Future

With the defeat of the Chanpion of Chaos last summer, the Queen of Monsters has been released from her prison... and she is ready to show our world how little we REALLY know about the nature of monsters! Tonight's release continues the Rise of the WorldBreaker trilogy in the /Northstar map.

Tonight: Battle to reach Karok the Fallen, but FIRST you'll need to face don a mysterious new monster... one HE did not create, but who has been commanded to follow him. Coming FRIDAY, you'll be able to face Karok the Fallen himself! (And have a VERY small chance to get the DarkIce version of his mage armor!)

If we don't want Karok's horde of monsters to join forces with the QUEEN of monsters, it's time to bare our blades and BATTLE ON... or the future will be MONSTROUS!

Old and New Gear for the New Year!

Talk to Quibble Coinbiter in Battleon to get The Fallen Mage Armor with a 15% Class Points bonus! You can also talk to Lim in the NewYear map to access all the returning seasonal rares PLUS find the 2015 New Year's Ball house item in the New Year house shop!

2014: Year of the Horse!

For the 2014 New Year's release, we wanted to take some inspiration from the Chinese zodiac. 2014 is the year of the horse, so naturally this is what we've come up with...

 

In Norse mythology, Hrimfaxi and Skinfaxi are the steeds of Night and Day, carrying the chariots of the sun and moon across the sky. Their equivalents in Lore are Frostmane and Embermane, and Ulfgar (remember him?) is worried that something is wrong with them. Embermane, the Steed of Day, has gone missing and her brother Frostmane is keeping the land in perpetual darkness. It's up to you to find her so she can bring back the sun - and bring in the new year.

So then, who's that nightmare steed, you ask? Is he what's keeping Embermane from returning to the sky? /Join frostmane to find out!

2013: A New Dawn for a New Year!

Save the sun, Hero, or tomorrow will never come! When a Werepyre petitions the Nocturan Creed, guardians of the night, to ensure he will never be harmed by the light again, you will need to work with the Lumina Votari to protect the sun and save the world! Journey across Lore to ensure that a new dawn - and a New Year - will begin!

2012: Time for Chaos

2012 was the Year of Chaos, and we started the year off with a BANG! Literally! But tonight, you'll go BACK in time to meet Professor Iadoa (Professor Yana, anyone?), a famous Chronomancer who has been missing for decades. He should have stayed gone, though, because now that he's back... it's time for Chaos!


The New Year's ball frozen in place. All clocks have stopped.

2011: The Chaos Continued

Lim has returned to the frozen north to help is close out 2010 with a BANG! Literally.

Well, that's what he INTENDED but once again he can't get his science all in one bucket and he needs your help to stop the ever hungry Icemaster Yeti from munching on this gizmos and doo-dads.

We hope you guys have all had a great holiday. We all took a little time out of insane production schedule to spend some time with our friends and travel hoe to see family, but we are SO READY to get moving on all our plans for 2015! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR! (Almost.)

*Honorable Hero 2021 character page badge arrive next week, as Captain Rhubarb is taking a much-deserved vacation this week.

Late-Night Reflections on our Gaming Community

(Edit: this was posted around 2 AM on Christmas Eve, on Twitter) As I sit at my desk listening to the cat snore... going over the gear the team's gotten set up for the release coming later tonight, I've been watching videos from community streamers like Korey and MsVyris.

This has been a crazy few years. One of the brightest spots has been seeing all of the community leaders and creators out there - the streamers, guild leaders, giveaway hosts, fan artists, etc. The time and effort you put in is a huge part of why our community is incredible.

One of the big topics of discussion in our team meetings the last few months is how we can continue shining a light on the people and groups helping make the game and community more fun for their fellow heroes. This is something we'll continue focusing in the next year.

For those of you who out there now, making videos, holding guild events or giveaways, creating art... thank you. You are Artix Entertainment. You're why we're here. I can't wait to see what we do together in 2022.

2022 Calendar Class Skills

Unlock the exclusive class when you get the 2022 Calendar

Get your 20th anniversary, double-sided calendar* at HeroMart.com. When you get the 2022 Calendar from HeroMart, you'll unlock in-game rewards inside AQ3D, AdventureQuest, DragonFable, EpicDuel, and the Continuum Chronomancer Class / Armor set in AQWorlds. 

In the spirit of being a calendar class with a twist, this year’s calendar class is support-focused: Its powerful offensive buffs provide your entire team a boost, while powering up its special damage mechanic!


*the flip side is a full poster with no dates

Continuum Chronomancer Class Details

Description: Recommended enhancement: Lucky. Continuum Chronomancers use their command of the timeline matrix to traverse reality.

Mana Regen: Continuum Chronomancers gain mana from all hits landed in combat, and especially on crits. The amount depends on damage relative to *their own* HP total.

Skill Breakdown

Quantum Rift: Warp space-time to damage your target. Applies Temporal Rift for 30 seconds, which stacks up to 4 and is used by your other skills.

Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 1
Type: Physical
Range: Melee
Cooldown: 2.5 seconds

Temporal Rift is used by calendar classes to track the amount of damage dealt, to be used by their other skills. Because Continuum Chronomancer applies Temporal Rift on its auto attack, you will automatically gain all 4 stacks once you land four auto attacks!

a1: Quantum Fracture: Fracture and fragment your foe's reality to harm their past and future selves. Inflicts Quantum Fracturing and Quantum Fragmenting, reducing their Defense and Dodge by 10% for 10 seconds, stacks to 3. 

Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 1
Type: Physical/Magical
Range: Infinite
MP: 20 
Cooldown: 3 seconds

Your conventional, time-traveling super-agent move that weakens your foe and makes them less capable of dodging. A 30% decrease to defense and evasion at max stacks makes this a helpful addition to any party.

a2: Quantum Shift: Distort the timeline to alter combat capabilities. Applies Quantum Shift to you and your allies, increasing Crit Chance and Defense by 30% for 10 seconds. 

Target: Friendly
Max Targets: 20
Type: Physical/Magical
Range: Infinite
MP: 30 
Cooldown: 10 seconds

A powerful support skill that offers another helping of Crit and Defense. While this seems to be a fairly ordinary support skill, its Rank 10 effect turns this skill on its head...

a3: Quantum Restructure: Hack into reality for a brief moment and rebuild it in your favor. Applies Quantum Restructure to increase Evasion by 80%, reduce Incoming Damage, Incoming Physical, Incoming Magical, and Incoming DoT taken by 20% each, while inflicting Quantum Rupture to reduce your foe’s stats by the same amounts. Both effects last 2 seconds. Never misses nor crits.

Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 1
Type: Physical/Magical
Range: Infinite
MP: 20 
Cooldown: 12 seconds

An extremely powerful skill that temporarily shreds your foe’s defenses. Allows the Continuum Chronomancer to deal much more damage for those two seconds. The heavy dodge debuff also gives your team a chance to lay down longer-lasting debuffs without fear of missing. Combo this with Quantum Fracture to leave your foes permanently worse for wear.

a4: Quantum Convergence: Perceive and control the source of your powers as they were meant to be. Inflicts Quantum Convergence for 10 seconds, a heavy DoT. If Temporal Rift is active, consume it to deal damage to your target based on the damage you've dealt in the last 10 seconds while Temporal Rift was active.

Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 1
Type: Physical/Magical
Range: Infinite
MP: 30 
Cooldown: 14 seconds

A combination nuke + DoT skill that truly takes advantage of your Rank 10 ability. Build stacks of Rift, Rupture your foe, and then hit them with Convergence while your stacks are concentrated for heavy damage!

p1: Red Vision: Your superhuman reflexes increase your Dodge and Haste by 15%.

p2: Delayed Deadline: Your mastery over the simulated reality grants you superhuman abilities, increasing your Endurance by 50%.

p3: Quantum Spiral: Quantum Shift also applies stacks of Quantum Spiral to you for each friendly target affected, increasing your Crit Modifier and DoT damage by 10% for 23 seconds, stacks to 40 but cannot be refreshed.

The key mechanic of the class, you gain more stacks of Quantum Spiral the more people are in the room with you. A 4-person ultra boss team will make you gain +40% Crit Multiplier and DoT damage with each cast (+10% per person, per cast), while a 7 person room stacks up even faster. Because this effect does not refresh, you will lose all stacks after 23 seconds, so time your skills to take advantage of this.

Conclusion

Continuum Chronomancer is a calendar class built to tackle group fights. Take note that this class does not heal -- although it is not meant to replace your defensive, healing support class, this “calendar level support class” is a powerful partner to that class, as well as to any team that needs an offensive support that can itself deal plenty of damage.

Helping Where We Can

Donation made on your behalf to help the relief effort

Our hearts go out to everyone impacted by Super Typhoon Rai, which struck the Philippines last Friday. We know that many of our players and some of our team members in the Philippines (as well as players in parts of China, Palau, Micronesia, and Malaysia) have been personally affected by this. On behalf of you and all the players in our Artix Entertainment videogame community, we've made a donation of $5,016 USD (250,000 Philippine pesos) to the Philippine Red Cross, to help in the relief effort.

Be safe and know that we're thinking of you.* We hope this contribution helps. And if you, your friends, or your family are in a position to help, we encourage you to do what you can. You can donate to relief efforts through the official Philippine Red Cross website.

*Just in case it takes a while for power to be restored in some areas, we're going to leave all our holiday events up for a couple extra weeks — we won't pull Frostval events in our games until after January.

Top spots on the leaderboard will unlock even more, exclusive prizes!

Over the last few years, we've seen so many heroes on social media holding Artix Points giveaways to help their fellow heroes enjoy our games, and how excited and grateful the winners were. We want to help bring that spirit and excitement in-game; that's why for the first time ever, AdventureQuest Worlds is holding an AC Gifting event!

Our Frostval Gifting event will run from December 15th - January 3rd. Read on for more details on how to give ACs, rewards for donating, and the Donation Leaderboard and prizes.

How to donate AdventureCoins to other heroes

Log in and talk to Chilly in Battleon. Choose to donate AdventureCoins, check out the Donation Leaderboard, or see the items in the Generosity Coin Merge Shop. 

To donate:

  • Choose from a list of donation amounts 
  • Confirm your choice* 
  • Click the confirmation button and the game will choose a random hero to receive your gift! 

Donation Details

  • You'll get one Generosity Coin the first time you donate each day. 
  • You can donate any amount to get a Generosity Coin each day. 
  • Spend the coins or save them up to get gear from the seasonal merge shop.
  • Every donation you make counts toward your Donation Leaderboard total

* Important note: we cannot refund your donation. The game will ask if you're sure you want to donate the amount you choose. Make sure you check and double-check before hitting the "confirm" button.

Frostval Gifting Rewards

Like in both EpicDuel and AdventureQuest, Chilly will have exclusive rewards and a leaderboard for heroes who donate. In AQWorlds, we're also introducing a new element: the Generosity Coin Merge Shop.

  • The first time you donate each day, you'll automatically get a Generosity Coin. 
  • Spend them (or save them up) to get exclusive gear from the merge shop.
  • In addition to their exclusive prize packs, top donators on the leaderboard will automatically unlock all of the merge shop items in their Book of Lore badge shop at the end of the gifting event.

You can unlock each armor in the shop and the Frosty Vamparagon Pet for 2 GC each. The helms, capes, and all the weapons are 1 GC each. The shop gear is seasonal, so if you can't get everything you want this year, you'll have another chance next year!

Frostval Gifting Leaderboard

Every time you donate ACs to a random Hero, it will contribute to your Donation Leaderboard total. At the end of the event, the top spots will unlock exclusive prize packs! 

Our Frostval Gifting event will run from December 15th - January 3rd. Prize packs will be awarded January 4th.

What if I pick the wrong item in the Generosity Shop? Can I get my Generosity Coin back? We cannot give refunds for Generosity Coin shop purchases, so please check and double-check before you spend a GC on an item in the merge shop. 

Can I see how much I've donated, or how much I've received? Yes! Log in to your account manager to see your gifts and what you've given.

Deep inside the Northland Woods, a monster has been slaying forest creatures; reports indicate that townspeople have gone missing, too. Log in and /join deerhunt this weekend. Hunt for a beast that until today was just a myth, but is now a deadly reality.

Talk to Gundahar in /deerhunt to complete his quests, then battle to unlock all of the pieces of his WinterWild Warrior armor set in his merge shop.

Head to /frostvale to find Gieferocious, the newest Giftbox monster. We've added this third monster and redistributed the item drops from Giefury and Giefurious to help improve your reward farming experience. (Giefury's loot table had gotten up to 40+ items... his cardboard skeleton was breaking under the weight of all those gifts!)

Last Chance: Black Friday Collection Chest

We accidentally removed the Black Friday Collection Chest pet a little too early with tonight's 5 PM update. We received a flood of complaints from heroes who had been planning to buy it just before it went rare. Sorry about that! We've added it back into the Featured Gear Shop until Monday. This is your last LAST chance to get it.

Leaving Soon: mark your calendars

Don't miss out on your favorite limited time events, stories, and gear! 

December 13: The Black Friday Collection Chest leaves for good this time.

How Do Limited Quantity Sets Work?

  2. Purchase the set using either ACs or gold
  3. Log into AQW and find your set badge in the Book of Lore

Server Performance and Bug Fixes

What is the "ServerTest" server?

This is an updated version of the regular Live AQW servers, with some performance and bug fixes.  This is NOT the "new" AQW mobile server.

Before rolling out changes to the live servers on Friday, we need to make sure there are no mysterious bugs or side effects to the code changes.

 

Want to help test?  Here is how: 

Log into the "ServerTest" server and just play the game like normal. 

If you have any strange problems or bugs, keep a note of them.   Then logout, and log into one of the regular Live servers, and try the exact same actions again. 

If the problem bug is ONLY on the ServerTest server, please Report the bug at the Bugs site.

Remember: This is testing SERVER issues only.  Do not report client bugs like menu and animation issues.

 

Brief List of Changes

December 8, 2021

  • Faster server calls to game database (very small speed boost)
  • Item Drops that are stackable, and already in your Bag will auto-add to your Bag without drop prompt.
  • Accepting drops that are stackable items already in your Bank will update the stack in your Bank.
  • Better syncing of your current gold/xp/acs amount with game data.

 

Older Changes

November 2021

  • House Layout Changes (work in progress!)


October 2021

  • Extra XP during Level Up carried over to next level
  • Boss monsters can say things when they die
  • Smarter logic for groups of Boss monsters



September 2, 2021

  • Fixed using your last Magic Treasure Chest key not freeing up inventory slot.
  • Fixed Bag and House slots not freeing up, when selling AC items, and using Merge shop.

 

August 24, 2021

  • Preventing skill spam cheating in PVP
  • Faster monster respawn when server is not busy.
  • Less chance of getting disconnected when game client spams the server.


July 15, 2021

  • Collecting Item Drops too fast will not disconnect you.
  • When session is kicked from multi-login, the client will show a more helpful message.
  • When trying to join a map that has a broken room instance, there is a better chance now of getting assigned to a working instance of the map, instead of nothing happening.
  • Using class skills immediately after Class Rank up will no longer kick you.
  • Killing your own character in PVP will not award a score for either team.

 

May 10, 2021

  • Selling items when you are at the max gold cap, will refund zero gold, but the item will be removed from your inventory. Fixes house item selling bug.
  • Fixed lots of random bugs, where player data is "missing" and the server tries to make changes anyway.
  • In PVP zones, it is no longer allowed to Get items from your Bank.  You can store items, but can not swap or pull items from Bank. 
  • Added cool downs to guild,friend, and duel invites.  Less spam!


April 26, 2021

  • Better warning messages when guild, party, and friend actions fail.
  • Buying items that are higher than your character level are blocked.
  • Item drops from monsters will now have enhancement level equal to your char level, unless the item is a higher than your char level. It will not be enhanced.
  • If you try to go to a player house that does not exist, and you already own a home, you will get an warning message, instead of going to the buyhouse map.
  • Removed an old process that would often lag the entire system every 15 minutes.
  • If you log into another game server, this server will show a warning message, instead of Kick for some actions, like quest turn-in, equipping gear.  More improvements in this area will be coming soon.
  • Faster server reboot time.
  • Many other behind-the-scenes performance and bug fixes.

** Created just for you by AQW Community artist, Dominik! 

Gifts, Gift, and MORE GIFTS!

December Seasonal Set: Northern Wanderer

Available every year from December 1st - 31st

Winter is coming (for many of you, it's already here!), and so are all our snow-covered, ice-laden, gift-bearing holiday events! To help ALL our heroes celebrate, this month's seasonal set features the Northern Wanderers - the Northern Wanderer and Fallen Wanderer armors.

December Set: The Northern Wanderer

Starting this Tuesday at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock the Northern Wanderer and Fallen Wanderer armors and all their accessories!

There are two ways to get the gear:

1) Total package: Buy the entire set directly through the website for $9.99 USD 

2) Individually: Buy each of the individual pieces from Garek the Traveling Gear Merchant in Battleon.

The total cost to buy all of the gear individually is 4,000 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Northern Wanderers pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 2,000 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Northern Wanderer Armor
  • Fallen Wanderer Armor
  • 5 helms 
  • 6 capes
  • 3 weapons
  • character page badge

Seasonal Set Details

Each month, we'll feature a new set, available only during that month every year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as the monthly upgrade bonus? 

Monthly upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages. Seasonal set packs are bought separately. Just like the Flame Dragon Warrior pack, you can buy the entire set directly, for one price, on our site. You can ALSO buy the individual pieces in-game.

This set will return EVERY December, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in upcoming years.

What if I just want ONE of the items?

You're in luck! Talk to Garek in Battleon. He'll be selling the individual pieces of the set through November 30th.

Where do I get my gear if I buy the full set through the website?

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.
