We've also got a bounty of beautiful summer faerie butterfly sets soaring your way in Twilly's Treasure Chest + Wheel of Doom Merge Shop!

Find the following set items in the Wheel of Doom merge shop:

  • Stained Glass Faerie armor
  • 4 helms
  • 6 capes
  • 5 weapons
  • 2 ground items

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

  • 50 armors
  • 55+ weapons
  • 70+ helms
  • 10+ capes
  • or 3 house items (including the Altar of Caladbolg)
  • Plus the new Bright Summer Faerie set

Get your Free Wheel of Doom Spins

Everyone loves to get prizes... and that's why everyone in AdventureQuest Worlds will get at least one free spin on the Wheel of Doom per week.

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

Spin the Wheel, Collect Treasures, Choose Your Prize 

Each time you spin the Wheel of Doom, you'll get a Treasure Potion to spend in the Doom Merge Shop. Save up 1,000 and you'll be able to buy a Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness. Each WIoDA lets you choose a rare or valuable item* straight from your account manager.

How to Claim your Prize

Make sure you have a confirmed email address attached to your game account, and then follow these steps:

  1. Decide on the item you want
  2. Log into your Account Manager
  3. Click on the "Awesome Prizes" link on the sidebar
  4. You'll see a list of the IoDA tokens you have available
  5. Choose from a list of ALL the eligible item rewards  
  6. You'll be taken to a verification page to confirm your choice

Redeem IoDA tokens to get even MORE bonuses

For each of the first six eligible IoDA tokens you receive , you'll get a FREE Bonus IoDA. The eligible tokens are the Ultimate, Epic, Platinum, Wicked  and Golden tokens. After that, you'll get a free Bonus IoDA for every 3 eligible IoDA you redeem, with no maximum stack. So if you have that dream set of gear you want to create... now you'll be able to.

After you redeem your...

  • 1st IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 2nd IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 3rd IoDA, you'll unlock 1free bonus IoDA
  • 4th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 5th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 6th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA

Then, for every 3 IoDA you redeem, you'll unlock another free bonus IoDA.

After you redeem your...

  • 7th, 8th, and 9th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA
  • 10th, 11th, and 12th IoDA, you'll unlock 1 free bonus IoDA

And so on. The 3:1 bonus IoDA ratio starts after you get your first 6 free BIoDA, regardless of when you received them. (Example: if you've redeemed a total of 21 IoDA tokens, you'll unlock 11 BIoDA total. The first 6 BIoDA at a 1:1 ratio, and then 5 more at the 3:1 ratio.)

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

Treasure Chests Details

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 Friday, July 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!

This weekend, log in and witness Darkon's story from its grave beginning in /garden to its tragic end. You have born witness to Darkon’s past and the reason for his ceaseless drive. A sacrifice has been demanded and the time for justice is at hand. Lore is on the brink of being erased and replaced with a more perfect reality. The fate of the world... and the prince... is in your hands. How will YOU choose to end the Elegy of Madness?

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!

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.)

Class Changelog: 6/17/22

Ultra Elemental Warrior / Legendary Elemental Warrior

A revamp to how the class functions and handles auras, to bring it closer to the original gameplay and remove most of the RNG in play.

Changes: 

  • Elemental Warrior now places as a powerful but complex late-game solo and DPS class, with both high defensive and offensive potential, but in differing scenarios. 
  • All of the descriptions, icons, and several of the animations have been updated.

Why was an update needed?

 Being an old fan-favorite class, we wanted it to be usable and fun for everyone to experience. The existing class was too weak for that, and could use a mechanics revamp.

Final Weekend for the Current Method

Due to the class’s new and significant increase in power, we are changing how the class will be obtained. We plan to make it both more expensive (in gold) and require more reputation ranks to purchase.

  • Starting Tuesday, June 21st, the class will be more difficult to unlock by farming (it will still require the existing Elemental Orb capes, but they will be more expensive).
  • The AC shortcut will not be changed.
  • Anyone who currently has the class will keep it

Skill Updates

Autoattack -> Elemental Axe

- Damage reduced (100% -> 80%)
- Range increased (Melee -> Medium)

Elemental Fusion -> Elemental Invocation

- Damage reduced (150% -> 120%)
- Mana cost decreased  (11 -> 6)
- Range Increased (Melee -> Medium)
- No longer applies Blazing, Earthen Blessing, Shocked, Critical Mass, Molten Armor, or Grounded.

- If Energy Magic is present, now consumes it and applies Critical Mass to the caster for 10 seconds, increasing Critical Chance by 25% and Critical Damage by 125%

- Mana cost decreased  (33 -> 12)
- Range decreased  (Infinite -> Long)

- If Fire Magic is present, now consumes it and applies Superconductor to the caster, increasing Damage by 50% for 10 seconds

Command of Darkness

- Added 75% increase to Endurance.

Command of Light

- Added 12% increase to Haste.

Blizzard

- Old effect removed (it was nonfunctional)
- New effect: Starting from rank 1, when invoking Elemental Power, you have a 5% chance of creating the rare but powerful Ice Magic. Fusing this magic with different elements can lead to very brief but powerful effects.

The fusion of Ice and Fire makes you Supercritical, increasing your Strength and Intelligence by 200% and Luck by 20% for 5 seconds.

The fusion of Ice and Earth creates Hailstone, healing you greatly.

The fusion of Ice and Energy creates Hoarfrost, reducing your Mana Cost by 200% for 5 seconds- causing you to generate mana instead!

 


 

Elemental Power -> Fire Magic -> Earth Magic = Molten Armor (-60% All In) (20s)

Elemental Power -> Fire Magic -> Energy Magic = Superconductor (+50% All Out) (10s)

Elemental Power -> Earth Magic -> Fire Magic = Incandescent (+100% END, +200% Heal Intake) (20s)

#WorldGoals: Juneteenth is about equality. Respect. Kindness for all. 

Tomorrow is Juneteenth, and here in the US, we've just made it an official federal holiday. Some of you might be asking... "What's that?" Many of you already know. In case you don't, though... let me share what that means.

Juneteenth celebrates the emancipation of slaves in the United States. Most states in the US celebrate this on June 19th (which is where the holiday's name comes from, June + nineteenth) but in several areas around the country the celebrations can stretch across several days of parades, parties, lectures, and exhibitions celebrating African-American culture.

Members of our player community have every color skin, practice every religion, and come from nearly every country around the world. It has always been important to us to represent and promote equality, unity, kindness, and the spirit of playing together.

I hope you'll join us in continuing to move towards a better world, where all heroes can work alongside each other as we direct our combined energy, talent, and skill towards goals that will take us all further and higher.

Character Page Badge Updates

Did some of your badges disappear? Read on.

The AQW Team are always working to improve the gaming experience for all players. Recently, we implemented changes that will prevent the use of third party programs from loading a selection of rare and seasonal badges.

These badges were added to the game in a specific way which made them targets for these third-party bot programs. That has been fixed now. If you see any of these badges disappear, it means that badge was not obtained legitimately. 

  • Moglin Punter
  • PTR Tester
  • Cysero's Wedding
  • Eye was there!
  • Lorestockapalooza End!
  • Skypirate Slayer
  • Horde Zombie Slayer
  • Samba
  • Unicorn Commander
  • Cornelis Reborn
  • Derp Moosefish
  • u Mad
  • PTR lag tester
  • Gravelyn's Warrior
  • Brutalcorn
  • Ravenloss
  • Champion
  • Pyrewatch
  • Zorbak Punter
  • Justice Squad

If you ever used a third party program in the recent or distant past (or shared your account with a friend or family member, and they used one with your account) that may explain why your badge/s disappeared. 

We will not be taking any action on accounts which had badges removed, but please remember that using third party programs is not safe and is a violation of our game rules and Terms of Service.

Note: these actions will not retroactively apply to people who admitted hacking and got a 1 day ban for removal of the badges.

Unlock the ShadowZard Set

Available every year from June 1st - 30th

The Summer sun may be bright, but June's seasonal set channels the darkest forces on Lore! Unlock the full the ShadowZard Mount + Rider set and character page badge when you buy the full pack, or talk to Garek in Battleon to get individual set pieces.

June Set: ShadowZard Mount + Rider

Starting Wednesday, June 1st at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock the ShadowZard Mount and Rider set.

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 5,000 ACs, so getting all the gear from the pack is a pretty sweet deal. 

The set includes:

  • ShadowZard Mount armor
  • ShadowZard Rider armor
  • 4 helms
  • 3 capes
  • 4 weapons
  • 1 pet (with quest for house guard zards)
  • an exclusive character page badge

Seasonal Set Details

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

September: Celestial Naval Commander
October: ChronoStriker

December: Northern Wanderer

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as an upgrade bonus? 

Upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages; new bonus gear comes out roughly every month. 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 June, 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 May 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.
