Tricks, Treats, and TERROR!

This Year's New Mogloween Event is Here

There's nothing more fun for the little ones of Battleon that running from /house to /house, begging for candy (and battling the monsters that try to take it from them). But year... something's just a bit off. Every building in Battleon with a strange sigil that -- according to Warlic -- will MELT BATTLEON'S RESIDENTS INTO SOUP BY SUNRISE?!?! What the -- O_O!!! Log in now and go trick-or-treating from house to house in Battleon and at your fellow hero's houses as a cover to evacuate the townspeople before it's too late. 

This weekend, log in and /join tricktown to begin the adventure!

  • Help Warlic and Serenity
  • Battle Playful Ghosts, Decaying Spirits, and Rotting Jack-o-Lanterns
  • When it's time to Trick or Treat, talk to Serenity in /tricktown

New for 2022: Trick or Treating at Player Houses!

After you've completed the first part of this weekend's story, talk to Serenity. She'll send you on your way to trick or treat at your fellow players' houses to finish the holiday event.

Trick or Treat notes

  • Serenity will only send you to the houses of players who are online at the same time as you
  • You cannot choose which house she sends you to
  • Once you get to the house, you'll find a monster you can fight for reward drops + can complete her quests

Spooky Reward Gear

Tonight: the original AQWorlds Founders will unlock their exclusive 14th Birthday pets: the Platinum Baby Dragon of Awe...  inspired by the Blade of Awe from the original AdventureQuest. There are two pets, one with the regular armor + one with golden Awe armor.

Any player who unlocked the Blade of Awe Merge Shop can create a non-platinum version of the pet if you have the required items: Baby Red Dragon pet + Guardian Patent.

Class Changes + PVP Fix

This weekend, we're releasing some changes to the Archmage questline to address the concerns you've shared with us. Overall time to do the quests remains relatively similar, but now offers more shortcuts for more prepared players, and alternative routes to avoid some of the low drop rate items.

Some of the quest items now come from either more or completely different locations, so be sure to read the changes carefully! As a bonus, all the drop rates will be disclosed.

PVP Fix: Scoring for 1v1 PVP was fixed this week. (It was awarding 10 points per kill instead of 1,000)

Leaving Soon: mark your calendars

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

  • 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 Thursday, September 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!

Archmage Class

Master of the Arcane Arts

It’s AdventureQuest World’s 14th birthday, and Artix Entertainment’s 20th anniversary! To celebrate, we bring you a brand new endgame class that’s near and dear to our hearts and games- Archmage.


Archmage is a very flexible farming class that you can tailor to play to your style! Between two modes and scalable skills, this class is sure to have something for everyone.

While primarily a farming class, Archmage can also fill a small variety of roles at a very high level, including some solo capability and debuffing capability.

A preview of the class can be seen here

How to Unlock the Class

Speak to Warlic in /dragonrune hall to begin the questline for Archmage. Like any other endgame class, this is a long and difficult journey you will undertake to unlock the class. You can begin this 10-quest saga at level 60, but the requirements of the quests will increase as you progress through them, requiring you to be level 80 to finish the class. The class will not be available for ACs.

The quests will take you through a journey to master the Arcane arts and learn about the various facets of magic. You’ll go through many fights, both easy and hard, and overcome some of the strongest fights in the game to achieve the class. Insignias will NOT be required to finish the class, but can be used as shortcuts for several of the requirements, speeding along players who wish to take on the extra challenge.

After you finish the questline, you can take on an extra extremely challenging quest to empower your new armor and weapon and make them color custom!

And now, the class abilities!

Description: Recommended enhancements: Wizard. Mana is a permeating force, present in all life and space. Archmages guide the flow of free-flowing mana in the air, creating phenomena in the physical world and altering its course. 

Stat Model: Offensive Caster

Mana Regen: Archmages read the flow of the Ley Lines around them, regenerating mana only with the use of certain abilities. 

Skill Breakdown:

Incantation
Rank needed: 1 / Auto Attack
Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 3
Type: Status
Range: Infinite
Cooldown: 1.5 seconds

Incant an unavoidable status spell and inflict your foes with Leywilt, reducing Dodge by 35%, Damage by 25%, and Crit Chance by 15% for 20 seconds.

Immolation
Rank needed: 1
Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 3
Type: Magical
Range: Infinite
Mana Cost: 10 
Cooldown: 4 seconds

Set ablaze the mana current, consuming the foes around you in an intense inferno and thawing any afflicted with Cryostasis. The fire ravenously burns, dealing more damage the lower your MP and leaving them burning based on the damage dealt, stacking to 2 and lasting 6 seconds.

Glacial Impact
Rank needed: 2
Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 3
Type: Magical
Range: Infinite
Mana Cost: -15
Cooldown: 2.4 seconds

Still the flow of the mana stream, flash freezing your foes in place and drawing in 15 mana for yourself. Your foes remain in Cryostasis, reducing their Hit Chance and Damage dealt by 30% while they take 30% increased magic damage for 6 seconds.

Supernova
Rank needed: 3
Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 3
Type: Magical
Range: Infinite
Mana Cost: 20
Cooldown: 4 seconds

Target: Self
Type: Magical
Mana Cost: 0 
Cooldown: 3 seconds

Inscribe an Arcane Sigil, significantly increasing your magical power. Your Arcane Sigil increases your Damage Dealt by 30% for 30 seconds, but the Overload of the spell increases your mana costs by 50% for 4 seconds and costs 40% of your current health.

Passives:

Thaumaturgy
Rank needed: 4
Type: Passive

Your mastery over the magical arts increases your Hit Chance and Crit Chance by 25%.

Aether Flow
Rank needed: 4
Type: Passive

Your ability to attune with the mana flow and influence it grants you 15% Haste.

Arcane Ascension 
Rank needed: 5
Type: Passive

Your Sigils can use Arcane Flux to empower you, shifting you between two forms. At rank 10, 10% INT.

Casting Sigil with Arcane Flux shifts you into Corporeal Ascension, giving you 250% END, 60% Crit Chance and a large rapid HoT based on your mana when you cast.

Casting Sigil in Corporeal Ascension shifts you into Astral Ascension, granting you rapid mana regen, 60% DoT damage, 20% Dodge, 5% Haste, and a small rapid HoT based on your mana when you cast.

Conclusion

Archmage is a deceptively simple class with a great amount of depth. Being a farming class, it was designed to play smoothly and be simple, with very few auras and interactions- but its scaling damage and heals and dual-mode play give it an incredible amount of customizability and build potential.

Being the first new class to release after the Blacksmithing updates, we wanted the class to be extremely receptive to enhancement traits and types. Because of that, the class has incredible synergy with different builds and different scenarios, allowing you to really tune it to your preferences.

The core gameplay of the class revolves around your two Ascension modes- Corporeal Ascension allows you to guarantee critical hits and be extremely tanky, but you’ll have to manage your mana more carefully. Astral Ascension allows you to have a constant influx of mana and drastically increases your damage over time, but leaves you considerably more vulnerable to damage.

Figuring out how to switch between modes or optimize one mode can greatly increase your power. Keeping up Arcane Sigil grants you a significant damage boost, at the cost of health and mana for casting it. The lower your health and mana, the more damage you deal. Finding a balance between your resources, your skill usage, and how actively you want to play the class is what Archmage is all about.

Achievement Tracker Rewards: The Whys and Whats

A "reward" is, by definition, something that must be earned. It's given in return for service, merit, hardship, etc.

  • For players who unlock the "Time Played" badges, the achievement tracker gear is a reward for their dedication and stamina, for staying with our community.
  • For players who unlock the "Sagas Completed" badges, the achievement tracker gear is a reward for their skill and drive to complete the many in-game sagas.
  • For players who unlock the "Loyalty" badges, the achievement tracker gear is a reward for having the desire and ability to financially support the development of the game.

Achievement tracker gear is a bonus, an extra bit of "oomph" to make the act of reaching the goals even more awesome!

For those of you unlocking new achievements this year, I hope you enjoy your bonuses! For those of you who are SO CLOSE to beating that saga or reaching that anniversary, keep at it! For those of you who have helped allow us to continue updating each week, thank you for your support! 

Remember: none of the achievement tracker rewards go rare. If you can't get the thing you want today, it will still be here tomorrow, next month, and next year!

Holiday AC Bonus Ends Tonight

AC Bonus Update... WHOOPS!

Our Holiday AdventureCoin bonus was supposed to end on October 3, but the image remained live in-game (though it was removed from the website). To make up for any confusion, we're extending the bonus until tonight's server restart. If you bought any AC or membership pack from October 4th through tonight, you'll receive the extra ACs. 

The bonus ACs will be automatically added to your account later tonight, after Captain Rhubarb runs the query. That way, we can make sure no one is overlooked accidentally. My apologies for the error!

Wait...AdventureCoin Bonus?!

That's right! Several times each year, we have bonus AdventureCoin offers (example: Summer, Back to School, and during the winter 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.

Get 60,000 ACs while our Back to School Bonus is on!

During our Back to School AC 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:

  1. Decide on the item you want
  2. Log into your Account Manager

Happy 20th Birthday, AdventureQuest

They level up so fast, don’t they?

The game that started it all just turned 20 years old! 🥳

Back in the day, the original AdventureQuest (commonly referred to as BattleOn) dominated high school computer labs since it was legitimately one of the two online games available at the time. Sure, there were other Flash-based mini-games out there like Frog in a Blender and Gerbil in a Microwave,* but none of these time-killers compared to the full RPG experience of AQ. 


* Gosh, the early 2000s had a sick sense of humor…

Before AQ came along, the only way to play a full RPG video game was to buy a physical game for your PC or console. That. Was. It. You (aka your parents) would have to shell out like $50 to buy a game cartridge or a CD, oooor you’d have to wait weeks for a certain game to become available at Blockbuster.** Of course, there was always the option to play games at your friend’s house, but it wasn’t much fun playing a single player RPG with only one save slot 😭

** I am seriously aging myself with all these archaic references.

But then!! AdventureQuest came along in 2002 and revolutionized the gaming experience! No longer did you have to worry that your eMachines computer wasn’t powerful enough to run the latest CD-ROM; AQ made gaming possible anywhere, so long as your computer was hooked up to the internet (back then, it was called the World Wide Web dial-up connection). High school and middle school computer labs were prime gaming grounds thanks to AQ’s browser-based gameplay, a F2P model that was unheard of at the time, and some of the worst graphics you had ever seen!

Fast forward 20 years, and AQ is still free-to-play with much better graphics than before (except that default character face — goodness gracious!!). If you wanna check out the game that started it all, check out that default face I mentioned, and check out the birthday celebrations happening now in the OG AQ, then tickle this link right here!

Update: AE’s 20th Anniversary in AQW

There are some things in life that are out of our control. Sometimes it’s pimples, sometimes it’s terrible fashion trends, and other times it’s devastating forces of nature. Hurricane Ian wrecked Florida last week; our thoughts, prayers, and positive vibes go out to everyone affected by the storm. Thankfully, all of the AE team and their families were unharmed, although some suffered property damage and went without power & water for many days. *gasp* Does that mean y’all went without coffee too?! *sobbing hugs* 

Hard to work on anything — esp computer game stuff — when you don’t have any power. That being said, we have to push back AE’s Anniversary event to the following Friday, October 14, 2022. I knnnnoooww I said it would begin Oct 7, but good luck voicing complaints to a Hurricane 🤷‍♀️ 

The 20th Anniversary event is still so enormous (and somehow got even bigger, thanks Artix lol) it will span the course of 2 weeks PLUS we’ve got Mogloween nipping at our heels AND ermahgerd there’s so much going on this month and in this run-on sentence SO here’s the current updated AQW release plan (barring any other force majeure events):

October 7

  • seasonal Mogloween events return
  • seasonal AQWorlds Birthday maps + gear return
  • Artix 20th Anniversary Collection Chest
  • 14th Birthday Gift I: Free inventory + bank slots 

October 14

  • AE 20th Anniversary Event, Part I
  • Artix 20th Anniversary Collection Chest update
  • 2022 Achievement Tracker gifts
  • 14th Birthday Gift II: 500 free AdventureCoins

October 21

  • AE 20th Anniversary Event, Part II
  • 14th Birthday Class: ArchMage
  • 14th Birthday Gift III: Multi turn-in / buy / sell / enhance

October 28

  • 2022 Mogloween event 
  • Wheel of Doom Treasure Chest update
  • 14th Birthday Gift IV: Cosmetic / outfit slots

As if all that wasn’t enough, there’s all kinds of other stuff you can do in the meantime, like gettin’ yer gauntlets on the new Star Swords and collecting viscera (uh wut?) during the newest Carnax adventure. I saw somewhere on Reddit that there’s this heccin sweet house item but idk if that is for realsies or is just joke. It was these 2 dragons coming down through the ceiling as if home insurance would be a-okay covering that claim.

“First Hurricane Ian, and now DRAGONS?” No wonder why insurance companies are leaving Florida… 

Well just like everyone else at AE, I have got to get back to work! BTW: when I wrote this, it was Wednesday, so that means we should ALL have worn PINK! 💞

xoxo, Beleen :D
