DOOMWOOD IS HERE! posted by Cysero on

It's one of our all-time favorite zones from any of our games and it's been re-imagined by the AQ3D team. You can check it out by heading through Greenguard Cave straight through to the other side or you can just...

/join doomwoodforest

We have added a number of new swords for you in both Artix's Shop and as a drop from the Undead Terror. Watch the video above if you have trouble finding it. 

The Shop has...

  • The Doom Ripper 
  • Skullduggery 
  • Midas' Curse 
  • Sworn Oath 

The Undead Terror drops...

  • Nightfall 
  • The Dark Knight 
  • The Wicked Joke 
  • King's Ransom 

These are the hardest items to get in the game. The drops are around 2% and the Undead Terror is a real beast. It will take everything you've got to beat him and you will need help.

If you'd rather grind quests than battle for drops, Artix has 2 new quests that each pay out 1000 gold each, to help you save up for the UBER expensive weapons in his shop. These are mostly for bragging rights, although the stats are pretty nice.

If you're the explorey type, Doomwood Forest has a lot of great things to climb and a lot of areas where we have future quests planned so have fun looking around the new map and trying not to get Wolfganged (when a gang of Shadow Wolves gang up on you). There have also bee a number of back end changes, stability improvements and other things that you can't see but AQ3D is moving forward a breakneck speed! Thanks for helping us Alpha Test!

Have a good weekend! OR ELSE!

AQ3D Alpha is (almost) here! posted by Cysero on

We are SO close... but we're not there yet. 

AQ3D MMO offline

AQ3D is leaving behind the fun Tech Demo phase today and entering a new, exciting stage of development... Alpha! But right at this VERY SECOND, the servers are offline while we perform some merging of tables and databases and make sure the server hamsters have state of the art wee tiny running shoes. 

AQ3D Login

Once we enter Alpha Phase, a lot more people are going to be able to play. Not just active AQW members, but former members, AC purchasers, DragonLords, StarCaptains, Guardians, those who have bought Varium, Soul Gems and even Smash Coins. 

Tech Demo testers can expect their Tech Demo badges and Star Swords to arrive by the end of today, and remember that all Tech Demo testers, our new Alpha Testers and even those who tested Legends of Lore will (toward the end of Alpha) recieve the Alpha Knight armor and access to the rest of the Alpha Knight Set.

Get your Firefox and IE ready (because AQ3D doesn't work on Chrome. They dropped support for Unity)... before the sun suts here in sunny Florida, you will be able to create your shiny new AQ3D account, and get a very early shot at grabbing the coolest character name you can think of. 

Hold on to your hats.

Cysero AQ3D
