You're getting two quests tonight! First, you'll have to search all over the game to find the candy ingredients the Cauldron Sisters need for their Frostval confections! Some may be in shops, some may be quests drops you're familiar with... there are also a few new ones you'll have to search for! Never fear though, there is a link to a thread in the DF GD for you guys to all work together to find what the Sisters need.
After that, it's time to make the caaaaandy! And who better to help than the Frostvale Moglins? Right?!
Gifts! You can turn in the merge items to get the base 2013 presents too! They'll also be used for the merges once the gifts finally open.
LQS Don't forget to check out the Eternity Joy shop in your Book of Lore!
There were so many good names suggested on the forums! I loved Skele Claus (Dragonman), and Frosty the Snundead (Azan)! This song from Dracelix clinched it though:
Frosty the snowghoul Was a dark and evil soul With an ice cold heart And a Frostval hat and Two eyes of frozen coal
Frosty the snowghoul Is a fairy tale they say He was made of snow But the moglins know How he came from life one day
There must have been some magic In that old silk hat they found For when they placed it on his head He let out a howling sound
Frosty the snowghoul Was alive as he could be And the moglins say He could kill and slay Just the same as you and me Never trust this 'pet'...
The War Challenge Shop is now live in the war town! Unfortunately, I ran out of time for an update today but, never fear, there will still be a quest this week and don't forget about the LQS shop on Friday!
Happy Holidays from your video game family here at Artix Entertainment! Even when you are not on our servers, you are still in our hearts. We have done so much together this year and made so many great memories... and we could not do it without you!
P.S. Thank you to everyone who upgraded with a Dragon Amulet or purchased DragonCoins to support our weekly releases. We are very grateful that you give us the opportunity to keep making all our games better each week.
The War Challenge Shop will go live tomorrow night!
And now a word from San Robin!
G'day from the Gouda Grotto!
Last Friday was a great day for me! I got to graduate from college, somehow Geopetal found out about it and it got mentioned in the Design Notes and as a cherry on top ... I was asked to write another quest!
It didn't take long for me to decide on the answer.*
The quest I get to write is for one of the most heartwarming events, Hero's heart day!
Now I have a forum question** for all of you. What do you want to see this Hero's Heart Day? - Speed dating with Hugrantulas? - Snuggling with Sneevils? - Shipping with Captain Rhubarb?*** Who knows maybe your idea will be used as the basic of the quest. I hope you all have a great holiday season!
Jingle on! ~San Robin
*YES! ** If you don't have a forum account yet, now is the time to make one at http://forums2.battleon.com/ ***Badumtish!
The Challenge has been issued... can you guys finish the war by tomorrow night! According the thread in the DF GD, you guys are speeeeeeeeding up! Frosty the Snow Golem can be yours if you help to meet the challenge!
Extra XP! The 10% extra xp and gold has been live since the 7th, Rolith just didn't have time to post DNs... buuuut, since it had a stealthy implementation, we're going to leave it active through the holidays too!
LQS! The icy Eternity Joy will become available at 4:30pm EST, on December 27th! Only 1500 of the ice-element Eternity Joy scythe will be available at 450 DC each!
Congratulations! Huge congrats to San Robin and UltraPowerPie who graduated this month! Everyone should go and enjoy some of their favorite cheeses in celebration and congratulations for these two and everyone else who graduated!
He knows when you've been sleeping... he knows when you're awake... he knows you've been punting moglins.... so watch out, for goodness sake!
The War Challenge is now being issued! If you finish the war by midnight EST, on Saturday, December 21st, you'll get this awesome, creepy, cheery, icy, awesome, slightly creepy SkeleSnow pet, created by Dracelix! What do you guys think its official name should be? (I'm voting for Frank. He kinda looks like a Frank.)
The boss fight is the release for this week while, next week, we hope* to bring you two small releases during the week!
LQS The Eternity Joy shop will appear on the 27th of December!
The Artix Wedding Celebration shop will arrive soon! The pet file is off to Verlyrus. If you have not yet played through the wedding event in AQWorlds, /log in now, because you will NOT believe how this release ends! (No, really, it's got multiple endings.)
Frostval is here, and so is Friday the 13th! BRRRRRing your sharpest gear and get ready to knock the Cultists out cold! If you don't, YOU are the one who is going to feel the chill touch of Death's hand upon you!
Fear the Sisters' icy stares!
What could the devious Cultists be planning this time? Log in this week and stop them before it's too late...again!
Every young video game creator dreams about his wedding, and Artix's creator, Adam Bohn, was no different. You know, something traditional. White flowers… musical preludes… and the onslaught of armored groomsmen, swordfights, ninjas, Iron Man, Batman, WWE’s Jimmy Hart, and evil bellhops all taking place during the middle of the very organized, formal ceremony.
Don't believe me? Watch the video!
Organized? Formal? Not THIS Battle Wedding!
AQWorlds' servers can hold over 20,000 players online at once, but the hotel where Adam and his bride, Michelle, got married is just NOT equipped to do that... So we decided to recreate the wedding in-game at AQ.com! (With some twists and additions that are most definitely not legal in Florida. Like dungeons. Possibly zombies. MAYBE some cross-dimensional traveling...)
This Friday, in-game Battle Wedding event arrives in AQW... and it's NEVER leaving! Expect to find:
Traps, pitfalls, and pratfalls
a Rares Shop
and the unexpected!
A permanent merge shop will also release for those who battle through the event in the future! We will be releasing a "Zorbak Loves Ebil" pet and weapon to celebrate Adam and Michelle's wedding!
Lord of the Wedding Ring: Expect the Unexpected!
The groom and his groomsmen, all clad in armor-plated suits, ushered close friends and family to their seats. Even Adam’s battle Pomeranian, Daimyo, was dressed in a tuxedo for the magical occasion. The wedding ceremony was beautiful … until the Catholic priest said: “Should anyone have reason why these two should not be joined in holy matrimony, speak now or forever hold your peace…”
Suddenly... the BATTLE portion of this most-unconventional wedding began! It wouldn't be a Friday the 13th event if SOMETHING unexpected didn't happen!
If the previous in-game weddings in AdventureQuest Worlds imitate life, and Adam’s real-life wedding was imitating Artix games, then this is a prime example of “life imitating art imitating life.” And YOU are going to have to make sure the ending of THIS wedding ends in victory: with the bride and groom becoming man and wife! (As the Hero, that's your job. And we KNOW you are up to the challenge!)
Log in now and play as Envy! Tomix and Verly have put together the beginnings of the Envy monster and you get to put Envy through their paces! Can this Elemental Spirit* make it through to the center of the Void?
The XP bonus week will go into effect tomorrow! Rolith needs a liiiiittle extra time to work on it. Once it goes live though, he'll let you know with a Design Notes post!
*Nope, don't believe your screen, Envy isn't human... yet!
