This week's release is live!
First off this week, we have Stryche's new HeroMart shop! Starting with the AQ3D t-shirt next week, When you purchase specific (not all- make sure you check!) REAL LIFE items from HeroMart, you'll get a code that you can redeem online for HeroPoints in each of your favorite Artix Entertainment games!
What can you get with HeroPoints?
You'll be able to buy powerful weapons and items, as well as special classes! This week, we're releasing 3 weapons for 2 HeroPoints each, as well as bringing back and giving a small update to the Shadow Base Classes (5 HeroPoints each). These Shadow Base Classes are NOT base class locked, which means you can purchase and use the Shadow Mage class even if your base class is Warrior!
The next Archivist skill is now live! Using what you've learned from the furious and dirty fighting of pirates and ninjas, you can now empower your attack to add a damage over time effect!
Swordhaven Quest Board:
Citizens have started posting quest requests on the Swordhaven Quest Board! Are you Hero enough to help out the people of Swordhaven?
This week's release presents a new equippable item type- the bracers! These items give small stat boosts, and are equippable in their new slot. Although Bracers are usually for higher level characters, the Shadowheart Bracer is usable by all characters (even without a Dragon Amulet)! It is also the artifact for Shadow Base Classes. Shadow Base Classes are unique in that they are able to use two artifacts: both the Cloak Scrap Artifact and the Shadowheart Bracer. The Shadowheart Bracer will boost damage done by the Shadow Base Classes by 50%! Even if you don't have the Shadow Base Classes, you will still be able to use the bracer for its stat boost! The Shadowheart Bracer has a 10% chance to drop from any of the current Caitiff saga quests (besides Breaking Down).
Of course, today has been a maelstrom of major news- here are some links to catch up in case you've missed any:

Hello players! Today, I’m writing the hardest Design Notes (or really of anything) I’ve had to in my past nine years with AE. I’m writing to say goodbye. It is my last day as the Game Director for DragonFable and my last day at Artix Entertainment. I’ve received a new job offer where I’ll be working to help create game dev education and certification programs.
My time at AE has been amazing and I’ve been able to work with a huge group of intensely talented and creative individuals. The DF team and the players have always inspired me and, as I move forward on my career path and back into the ranks of player and superfan of DragonFable, I know that Tomix and Verlyrus, as the new co-leads, will continue on working together with Melissa4Bella, San Robin, Karika, GIngkage, Elryn, Eric, and all the AKs and players, and make even more incredible stories for everyone to play through! I will also, admittedly, be abusing my access to continue to bother Tomix and Verlyrus until they decide to bury the Stone Orb in the Willowshire Tower with Sir Valorus.... ;)
To everyone at Artix Entertainment, to all the DragonFable team members past and present, to all the players, thank you so much! You’ve all made my time here an experience to remember! <3
The team at the lab made me a poster AND cake! They rock!

We just released a set of capes in the Kickstarter Rewards shop at Mux in Book 3 Swordhaven! We appreciate all of your help in supporting AQ3D!
That's not all we have for you this week though- introducing Bracers!
Bracers are a new, rare, piece of equipment that are equipped like necklaces and belts. They do not appear on your character, and they give a minor amount of stats. The first of these will be released this week- and there's something quite special about it.

The release is liiiiive!
After waiting for a long time (3 whole days!), San Robin has a new quest for you!
Questions will be answered tonight and perhaps you’ll learn some more about his past.
Is he just that goofy cheese-lover who lives in the back of the inn?
Or is he more than meets the eye?
Am I just ranting?
Or will these questions actually be answered today?
Go log in and visit San Robin at the Falconreach inn (book 1) to find out!

Last time San Robin send you on a quest, you were left with several questions.

The release is live!
It's a light one, your hero needs a day off after all. Go to Ravenloss Book3 (the one AFTER the Tomix Saga finale, with the Equilibrium Gate sealed shut), visit Aegis' house and you should see a new button!
This quest takes place AFTER the TS finale, but before your dragon was taken... just pointing it out.
