The Solaris and Lunaris Clans Await!
Shoot for the stars! Light and Darkness dominate the skies in an eternal clash for supremacy... and immensely-powerful artifacts!
Solaris and Lunaris Call to You!
This weekend, return to the /Mobius map in Chiral Valley and speak to either Saa'thel or Traveon. Ally with either the Lunaris or Solaris clans and, with your help, one side may finally gain the ability to control the stars... and Lore itself!
All-new Suggestion Shop Gear is Here!
Speak with Yulgar to view our all-new Suggestion items! We take your designs and put them in-game for ALL your friends to /equip! Because we've put so many of your ideas into AQW, the Suggestion Shop is overloaded!
Reminiscence Armor and Rune Falcon blade
So we're moving all the current gear into the Legendary Suggestions Shop. You can still buy those OR take a look at all the epic gear in the NEW Suggestions Shop!
Talk to Twilly for Power Gem Solution!
We've got a POWERFUL fix to the power gem problem! Talk to Twilly in Battleon (you'll find him on top of the gem-stack) once a week to get 1 Power Gem added straight into your inventory. You MUST have a confirmed email to get a Power Gem.
Twilly's got Your Gem!
The Power Gem link will ALSO be included in the newsletter emails, but if you do not receive an email for any reason, you can talk to Twilly in-game to get your Gem. You cannot get more than 1 Gem a week, so if you get it through your newsletter, you cannot get a 2nd from Twilly.
To confirm your email and begin receiving 1 FREE Power Gem each week, go here: Account Manager!
If you see two stacks of Power Gem in your inventory, we will fix that next week.

Power Gems and Newsletters in the Future!
One of the easiest ways to get more AQW newsletters to you all is to send out our newsletter earlier in the week. (That way, we will get them out before so much of our total email allotment is usedup.) Newsletters only go out once a week, so if you don't get one after 2-3 days, you won't get it that week.
If your email address was confirmed, Yorumi and Captain Rhubarb are working on a way to get you your free Power Gem today if you didn't receive it yesterday.
If your email is confirmed and you DIDN'T get your free Power Gem yesterday, you should see it in your inventory now.
Here are some of the things we want to look into:
- Creating a way to for to check whether or not you receive emails after you sign up for the newsletter. (ex - sending a test email to make sure your email is correct)
- Allowing you to re-sign up to receive newsletters after unsubscribing. FIXED!
- Seeing if there is a way to re-send individuals a newsletter if they signed up but didn't receive it. (Not sure how this would work, but we'll investigate it.)
To confirm or re-confirm your email (and to get the newsletter), please follow these steps:
- Head to http://account.aqworlds.com/
- Click on the Newsletter link on the right.
- If your Status reads as "unconfirmed" please click on:
- the Resend Email button
- In a little while, you should have an email in your inbox!
I wanted to get this info out to you all as soon as possible! Check back later today for Design Notes on more Quibble gear previews, news about the Cleric release, and more teasers about Dragon*Con!

Shadows are stirring inside the Empress' Fortress!
With Chaos on the move and the Alliance not advancing in their crusade to overcome it, Empress Gravelyn is growing impatient. She needs to move, and soon! This Friday, you will be summoned to her throne room in /Shadowfall.
She'll send you on quests into the heart of her Fortess AND through the rest of Lore to prove your allegiance! (... or to see why Good is ineffective! Will you remain true to your King?)
Rob strangers to finance your Empress, save strangers to prove to the Empress that a Good alignment is the right choice... and watch as Gravelyn begins the journey to reclaim her throne in the eyes of ALL Lore!
This week's rewards will come in three styles: Evil, Good, (and for those of you who just HAVE to be different) Chaos!
Quibble Update on Friday!
Time keeps on ticking into the future... and so do your rewards! Quibble's shop will be updated just in the nick of time this Friday with: Time Travel-themed gear! Look for more art previews later this week.
Power Gem Newsletter Info!
It sounds like a lot of you are looking forward to getting all of that shiny Power Gem gear that Twilly has in Battleon!
New features often come with bugs, and not all of them can be caught without a wide pool of testers. (That's you!) Here are some things to be aware of:
If you have a confirmed email but aren't receiving the newsletter:
The issue is most likely that your email provider blocked the individual message. (It might have been flagged as spam accidentally.) You can sign-up with new email and you'll start getting the newsletter again!
To make sure you DO get the newsletters, Captain Rhubarb is going to set up a "Send me a sample newsletter" link to make sure that you receive it. The next week, you'll get an actual newsletter with a Power Gem link!
If you get a message that the Game Database Server is unreachable:
You may be clicking an old link, or your email might not be confirmed. That just means the data you used was invalid. Make sure your email is confirmed and try again when the next newsletter reaches you.
If you get a newsletter which has code instead of a link:
Please post a screenshot on the forum showing that error. In the meantime, Megalops is going to look into what could be causing that.

Can you get to 100% for the Paragon Set?
Dage the Evil has been persuaded! If you can get his war meter to 100% before the release time on August 31st (while we're at Dragon*Con!), he will offer his Paragon Set for Adventure Coins once the goal is reached! How fast can you battle?!
He sees how hard his followers have battled through this war, and he wants to reward your valiant efforts! But don't think that because he's giving you a gift, that he is any less Evil...

Artix's Dragon*Con Update!
DragonCon takes place every year in Atlanta, Georgia. It is a weekend long convention (Recommended ages 15+) with 30,000+ attendees... most in amazing costumes. I guess it is really like a weekend long costume party with celebrity guests (walk of fame), panels featuring the casts of your favorite sci-fi/fantasy/etc TV shows, video games, art galleries, table top games, concerts, shopping and... well, check out the schedule on the DragonCon website. As mentioned in our previous post, the Artix Entertainment team will be attending in force again this year. We will be running a panel and a fan table!
Our artist Jemini (pictured above) has like 3 different costumes this year!
Come see us at DragonCon
