AQW: Chaos, Magic, and Mayhem!

Posted by on 38 comments

AQWorlds' first guest-author event starts Friday

Chaos in your veins... And in Lore's magic?! THAT sounds catastrophic! Join the AQWorlds team and 30,000 of your fellow players at aq.com for a massively-magical special in-game event! Featuring  characters from author Sarah Prineas' novel The Magic Thief, you'll have to race against time and treachery in order to save the missing mages of Lore. And if you can't prevent Drakath's plot from succeeding, ALL of Lore's magic will be tainted with Chaos!

Magic Thief event promotional graphicCheck out all the latest info on the event page!

During the event, you'll get a chance to learn about how magic in AQWorlds operates: ley lines, nexuses, and focus stones are all crucial if the mages of Lore are to guide and guard the home they love! Look for a new piece of information on how Lore's magic works AND get event updates and sneak peeks each day on the AQW Design Notes!

WHAT: The Magic Thief guest author event with Sarah Prineas!
WHEN: March 23rd, 2012 at sundown!
WHO: The cast of The Magic Thief novel, the AQWorlds team and YOU!
WHY: Sometimes even the greatest magicians need a little help from a thief!
HOW: Join us in-game, right here at AdventureQuest Worlds


Send J6 to outerspace!

AQWorlds' lead artist, J6, is astronomically talented! So who better to be Artix Entertainment's ambassador to the galaxy? He has a chance to win a contest to go on the ultimate quest - into space! And YOU can help send him up there, where he belongs! All you have to do is head to this site and vote for him. You can vote once per day, per computer and with all our help, he'll have the chance to draw the first-ever extra-orbital AQWorlds reward!

J6 in SPAAAAAAAAAACE!As of this writing, J6 has 24,949 votes, and 99.9% of that is YOU guys helping one artist realize a life-long dream. It's amazing what the power of the AE community can do when they band together. Nothing is out of reach, not even the moon!

Look fly like a J6 with HeroMart's newest t-shirt!

Head to Heromart, Artix Entertainment's real-life loot store and snag your very own J6-style shirt! These fly off the shelves faster than the speed of light, so if you want to look like a bounty hunter* as you battle through life, this is the shirt for you!

Are YOU a Bounty Hunter?

And any bounty hunter worth their guns wants to score the critical fashion hit they'll get when they equip the epic promotional rewards that come with purchase - the J6 Helmet and the J6 Cowboy Armor!

* This shirt does not give you license to act like a bounty hunter. Unless you're in space.

Solo Xz: I was thinking we should do a mid-week members special for Dage (maybe a story of how Dage became the legion lord/master) or a mid-week members special for Cysero ( how he gained his magic and decided to fight for good) or a mid-week story for thanatos? ( Have you guys heard of persona???).

Eldric: Event looks cool, but what's really interesting is AQW-Lore's magical system! I hope we can have more events detailing the precise nature of AQW's magic.

P.S. Magic+Chaos=Ledgermayne!

Zethin: I prepare for the event on Friday in AQW. Also I´m going to play the Scavanger Hunt in HeroSmash. I should learn a little magic and hunt for a legendary sword ;)

And I´m very pumped up over all the April releases.
April is where all is happening, check it out:

Doomwood Part 2 begins - Going to get "Blinding Light Of Destiny"
2 new Action Figures coming out on sell - With Class, Items and House in-game items.
Herosmash 1st Birthday - Big Event, Full Release and special items for Founders.
April Joke Day - A new "Joke-version" of the Sword "Blade of Awe"
Mulligan Day - Just a Celebration Day, but still great.
2 year since AQW PVP come out - Hope for some new PVP items.
Grenwog Day - Get some bunny and egg items and a Grenwog Pet.
Zephyros Birthday - Hoping for a Mod Birthday Shop.

So I´m dying for April to be here soon, just 2 1/2 week more guys and girls! :D

Alroc: I have nothing against the events that you've listed, don't get me wrong...but this isn't the AE portal site, this is the AQ3D site. I come on to see updates to the AQ3D game not notices about their other games, if I wanted to know about AQW I would have gone to their website.

Please don't clutter this website with non-AQ3D related information.

.Joerte: How did i not see that j6 going to space was real and not an event.Oh and to use the bounty hunter shirt to its full potential i need to go to outer space. Im coming for you intergalactic ancient aliens.

I wonder if the event will follow the storyline of the actual book because if it did that would be epic. Now thats a big compliment coming from me considering i dont even play Adventure Quest Worlds.But its so great seeing Artix Entertainment using ideas from books to explain magic.I seriously thought this kind of thing would occur in Adventure Quest Classic first. Especially because its orientated on magic and explaining how it works. If the event itself was more related to the book and storyline I would expect that to be in Dragonfable.

This is a VERY long post and probably the moderators worst nightmare so i will stop because of that also because my fingers are seriously hurting
