New Armor News
We've been making additions to some of our armors!
The Lunar Sandknight! Reens will be adding the color-custom code to the rest of the Lunar Sandknight set in Quibble's shop today. She's back in action today, but let's all cast /heal on Reens' household to drive away the Sick!
The armor, helms, sword, and wings will ALL be color-customizable!
Plumes of Paradise Alteration
Over the weekend, we fixed the issue on an armor released in February which made the skirt disappear and left just the bikini bottom showing. We are very careful to release armors which we feel will appeal to the majority of our playerbase while keeping in line with our E-10 rating, but sometimes mistakes and bugs slip in.
Though the armor looked unbroken (if more revealing than we normally allow) when you review at our other Carnival armors, you see the lower halves of the female armors are much more covered than the Plume armor, having skirts or bottoms which cover their entire lower torso. No other older armors are going to be changed at this time.
Later today, the sellback price will be raised to the original purchase price. If you do not wish to keep the armor, go ahead and sell it and you'll get all 600 ACs back. If you sold the armor already (after it was changed), we will run a query to give you the difference.
Find the Evolved Chronomancer at HeroMart!
If you haven't seen our new 2014 Artix Entertainment Calendar Poster, head to HeroMart! You'll get the ChronoCommander Class and armor set! AND... later today, we'll also add the Evolved Chronomancer Armor set from Tyronius!
If you already purchased the 2014 Calendar, you'll find this gear in your badge shop in the Book of Lore, along with all of the other in-game items that already came with it!!

Once a month, we'll take all of the Ultimate Item winners and let them choose one of the rare items from the Chest of Wonders! The SUATMR donation prizes Cysero put together are the beginning of the list, but many heroes want to add items to it! Stay tuned for an updated list soon.

Once we hear from you and verify that you have the item, we'll select a donated item from the pool of gear donated by your fellow heroes.
You asked for changes, and we're making them!
We love all our players, and listen to your feedback every day in-game, on Twitter, Facebook, and the forum... then change our plans based on what YOU say!
After last night's post about the new Wheel of Doom, we got a lot of comments... and a LOT of questions! Read on for the answers.
We are NOT bringing back Rare items!
Each item released in AQWorlds has a rarity tag. Different tags have different meanings. See the chart below to learn the different between a "rare" item, an "unknown" item, and more.
ONLY past Quibble items with an "Unknown" rarity are returning. Items marked "RARE" are perma-rare and no more of them will ever be added to the game.
(We didn't plan for ANY of Quibble's items to go rare... EVER... but many of you love your rare items, so we will ONLY return "Unknown/Unassigned" Quibble items to the Wheel of Doom.)
Example of a Rare Item that will not return
You can find out what kind of rarity an item has by clicking on it in your inventory, then looking at the item's details.
This is a "Rare" item will NEVER become available again.
Raising the Gold Cap!
Because you'll be able to get gold from the Wheel of Doom, we're going to increase the gold cap. We're also investigating how to make gold received from the Wheel of Doom quest ignore the gold cap so you can keep all the gold you get no matter what!
Gold rewards from the Wheel of Doom have been adjusted. The new reward amounts are listed in the Wheel of Doom Design Notes post!
Cycling Quibble's "Unknown" rarity items in and out!
Every few months, the "Unknown rarity" items will change out to keep their quantity in-game low. Check the Wheel regularly to see which items are currently on the reward list!
All items in Quibble's current shop are rare!
Yup! If you purchased an item from Quibble's current shop, it will automatically turn rare by the end of the day. Quibble and his shop are still here, though! Next Friday, he'll get the DragonKhan Rider, the Legion Raptor Dragonrider, and MAYBE the Archfiend Dragon Rider armors!
Free Spins for the Wheel of Doom!
Everyone loves to get prizes... and that's why we're giving Legends a free spin EVERY DAY that their upgrade is active! ALL players will get a free spin once a month!
