Return to the Mirror Realm
Survive the Chaos of the RedDeath Swamp!
When the world is out of balance, Chaos gains the upper hand! This Friday, return to the Mirror Realm for the 3rd installment of the Xing and Xang Chaos Saga. Mirror Drakath needs your help to restore harmony to his realm and yours, and there's only element out of alignment: Evil Xing and Good Xang, the Chaos Twins!
Lore needs balance between Good with Evil!
Battle through the RedDeath Swamp, the mirror version of Greenguard Forest, to gather the resources necessary to solve the problem of the swapped Chaos Twins once and for all... but be careful! Outside the Mirror Realm, Evil Xing and Evil Xang are racing to build their Chaos Beast, and any failure will reflect VERY badly on them!
New Gear in the Treasure Map Shop!
TreasureHunters, assemble in-game this Friday! We've got a treasure map to a shop full of incredible loot hidden somewhere inside AQWorlds, and if you can find it, you get ALL of the gear (and any gear we add in the future) for free!
Read more details on how the Treasure Map works here!
Talk to Cleric Joy in Battleon or Valencia in BattleonTown to buy the Treasure Map for a one-time cost of 2000 AventureCoins, then use the clue it gives in the item description to find a shop hidden in-game full of 0 AC gear only YOU can access! At this point, we have over 6500 ACs worth of gear in the Treasure Map shop, and all of it is 0ACs for free storage!

Swordhaven Falls this Friday
Face the Chaos Beast AND Chaos King Alteon!
Log in Friday to take on the 3-headed Chaos Dragon AND confront Chaos King Alteon in the 12th Chaos Saga finale! Will you slay Chaos King Alteon... or spare him? And what will be the cost of your decision? As Swordhaven falls, Chaos flames rise high; life in Swordhaven will NEVER be the same!
Chaos rises and Swordhaven falls!
Your battle will begin on top of Swordhaven's castle as you tackle the Chaos Beast while Lady Celestia watches. Then, race through a burning Swordhaven while Choas King Alteon flees his fate... and more destruction of the home he once loved.
Swordhaven will change... FOREVER!
After that, the final confrontation will begin. Will you save Chaos King Alteon, or will you slay him? And can you live with yourself once that choice is made?
This week is the beginning of the end of the 13 Lords of Chaos Saga! From here, we move into Xing and Xang's Chaos Beast and Chaos Lord battles, then... into the heart of the Chaos Realm itself!
