Jungle's Fury

Hey there, heroes!

This week in DragonFable, Book 3's story continues! With Swordhaven in chaos, and the King's life in peril, it's up to the hero once again to save the day!

But obstacles can show up in all sorts of shapes and sizes.

Head over to Kara in Sulen'Eska to play the next part of the Rose saga: Jungle's Fury!


Also this week:

Many various engine updates and fixes have arrived.

New in version 14.1.16:

  • Mouse scroll wheel functionality has been added to player inventory, shops, and the bank. You can now use your scroll wheel to scroll through items!
  • Name text size now scales with name length- in other words, longer names will no longer be cut off. (Although if they're suuuper long they might be tiny!)
  • Stat training for the hero now has the option to train 10 points at a time. And no, this functionality is not there for baby dragon training yet, yes, it's on the list of things to do, yes it's more difficult and will take longer to do for that.
  • Other various bug fixes/text changes
  • Book 3 Intro quest has had minor (minor looking, but major time investment) changes to be slightly more polished.
  • Oaklore's animated introduction has returned.
  • Other things that I've forgotten to include but are scattered around a bit.
  • Oh yeah! The Frostval book is live now!

Class changes:

  • Necromancer's Shroud has been fixed to no longer do weird unintended damage.
  • Necromancer's Shroud has also had its cooldown increased to 30, up from 11.

Think you know what will happen next for our hero? Have strong opinions about changes and fixes? Want to discuss lore? Anything else DragonFable related?

Legion Challenge at the Arena!

Hey there, Heroes!

Happy December! To start off this month, we have the final section of the Nefarious Challenges board in the Arena at the End of Time!

Your rewards for taking down the creepy Legion Crawler and The Abomination include materials to create the Necro Paragon armor!

Necro Paragon

The Necro Paragon armor is a reskin of the Necromancer armor, made a while back by the one and only Dage! While there are no mechanical differences between Necro Paragon and Necromancer, Necro Paragon will let everyone know how stylish and awesome you are.

Another reward is the Legion Bracer, which has very strong stats, and may have a future additional use!

There has also been a small update to ShadowWalker of Time testing- weapon spinning has been reduced, and bugs should be fixed.

The Storybook Collection shop has been moved to the Special Shops button in the Book of Lore as well.

Can you take down the Legion Crawler and the Abomination? Can you take down both at the same time? Will you complete your set of Necro Paragon gear?

Good luck!

A Boneheaded Brawl!

The 2017 Thankstaking Finale is here! Head over to the Thankstaking book to play it.

I wanted to have a bit of fun with this, and I hope you have fun as well.  There’s still more on the horizon. The villains aren’t done yet… not by a long shot. So dig in and Battle On.  Happy Thanksgiving to all our American players, and for the rest of you, may you have a wonderful week.

2018 Calendars are now available!

Hey there, heroes!

The 2018 Calendar is now available from HeroMart, featuring high quality beautiful art from the artists here at AE!

https://cms.aqworlds.com/df/images/Promo-2018CalendarFri-800.jpg

(Note, AQW items shown here)

Get the calendar now, and you'll receive a code for the Chest of Enduring Time, as well as the Eternal Locket bracer! (as well as goodies in the other AE games!)

https://cms.aqworlds.com/df/images/2018CalendarItem-DF.jpg

The Chest of Enduring Time will turn into the Epoch class- a new class under development for this and future calendars. That's right, every year, you'll have an opportunity to get the Epoch class with the calendar!

Epoch Concept

The Eternal Locket bracer is an Artifact for the Epoch class, only available from the 2018 calendar. Future calendars will come with new, unique, artifacts, changing up skills and/or appearance every year.

Also some good news- the folks at HeroMart have spent a lot of effort getting international shipping prices lower than ever before.

Head on over and check it out! (There are also some 2017 calendars still in stock to get the ShadowWalker of Time class- which is currently in Dragon Amulet only testing!)

That's all for today,

-Verlyrus

The Felonious Five!

The Thankstaking release is LIVE!

Straight from under Eric's pen! (Or keyboard? Hmm...)

The last decade has seen a HUGE surge in movies based on comic books. Among the most popular of those movies are the big team movies like the ones recently produced by two major comic book companies. As I was working on this, I was thinking about a quest I played in AQ where several villains teamed up.  I thought to myself, WHY haven’t we done this in DF? We’ve even got our own established superheroes. While the two quests surrounding Thankstaking are being written as a fun holiday quest, I also feel like it lays groundwork for some entertaining future quests.  
    
I often ask myself, if the Hero were to suit up as a superhero, what costume would the hero wear?  The answer, of course is that it’s impossible to say because ultimately, YOU, dear friends, ARE the Hero, and everyone’s vision is different.
    
For twelve years, villains have taken a shot at destroying Thankstaking.  They always had their own reasons, not necessarily good ones, but reasons nevertheless.  This time I wanted to bring some old friends together for a bit of mayhem.  The reason given seems transparent enough, but these villains are a cagey lot, and things aren’t always what they seem.

Thankstaking is a fun holiday for me to write stories for because we can step out of the seriousness of major storylines and have a bit of lighthearted humor. Thankstaking is a time to enjoy yourself, enjoy the company of your friends and family, and reconnect with them. It’s a time of celebration, and taking the time to be thankful for all the good that keeps our lives bright. To be quite frank, I’ve come to think of all of you as friends, and an important part of my own celebration. Thank you all, and I hope you enjoy this year’s holiday feast of entertainment.

2017 Thankstaking Teaser!

Thankstaking is coming once again, and this year is shaping up to be one super gathering of friends. 

What better way to celebrate great victories and achievements than a great feast with everyone who sacrificed so much this year? You’ve all fought hard this year, and faced some steep odds.  It’s time for a well-deserved break and a bit of frivolity.

Unfortunately, as always, there are some less than savory elements out there… agents of chaos, if you will, who would love nothing better than to disturb the peaceful gathering of friends. Five shadowy figures, who have gathered together for a nefarious purpose, even now are turning their eyes towards Falconreach.

But… why?

Friday, it will once again be time to head into Falconreach ahead of the festivities to make sure that everything runs smoothly.

Enter the Timetorn Matrix!

Hey there heroes!

The next challenge (and arguably awesome farming area) has arrived!

The Timetorn Matrix Challenge is available from the Nefarious Challenges board in the Inn at the Edge of Time.

Explore the matrices and collect Timetorn Teleshards to reforge your very own powerful Necro Paragon Soulblade!

https://cms.aqworlds.com/df/images/10-11-2017.png

The Timetorn Matrix comes in three categories- small, medium, and huge. The "Small" Timetorn Matrix has 100 rooms, and is guaranteed to drop a Timetorn Teleshard at the end. "Medium" drops a guaranteed Timetorn Bladehilt (which costs 5 Timetorn Teleshards to forge), but comes with 500 rooms!

Lastly is "Huge". 1000 rooms of terror, and gurantees a drop of a Timetorn Warblade (5 Timetorn Teleshard forge cost).

However, as you explore, you will also (if you're lucky) come across treasure chests that will allow you to purchase an extra Timetorn Teleshard!

This quest also features new technology that allows you to save a room in the dungeon and teleport to it from wherever you are at a future point! However, you'll lose your telepoint if you are defeated or teleport back to the start.

Good luck, heroes!

In other news, the Thankstaking book is back for the month! Gobble up those stories so you're ready for this year's event!
