Two new varieties of Dragon Chow are now available in Sunbreeze Grove!
UBER Dragon Chow costs 60 Dragon Coins and is chock full of vitamins and minerals and will give your dragon 10 stat points per feeding. GOURMET Dragon Chow costs 150 Dragon Coins and it is so artfully and expertly made that it will give a whopping 20 stat points to your dragon per feeding!
Friday Oh, poor Twig! He needs a new fwend and, well, you're always kind of super busy saving the world and beating up Fishface Waffletoast monsters to hang out with Twig as much as he wants.... You could probably ask around a bit and see if anyone else would like to be introduced to ice cream and fish loving little guy though!
The Twigsmas presents have opened to reveal a plushie cape, a fishy new sword, and a very special and fwendly pet! You can merge the items up in the Frostval Storybook using the Fish heads you got from the war!
Twig also has his own special shop for Fish heads and a moglin in town has some new house items for you! Later this weekend, you might be able to help cheer the little guy up.
Archivist It's coming soon! With everything that's been going on the last few months we fell a little behind. The calendar class is number one on Verlyrus' list this new year though!
Ice Cream Invasion The war will go static on Monday! So you have a few more days to get your war counter up if you want to!
That was Twig's best fwend!!! He's gonna be super upset... all he wanted was a fwend. Someone to hang out and eat ice cweam and fwish with....
Poor little guy. If only someone else liked those things... (wait... do you like ice cweam and fwish? Or maybe you know someone else who has an insatiable appetite for dairy?)
The Act 33 button will light up on Friday to let you guys into the 2015 Frostvale town where you'll be able to talk with the moglins and unlock special shops filled with Twigsmas themed house items and merges for your excess Fish Heads! The Fish Heads will also be used for merging up the gifts when they open on the 1st!
Keep in mind, this was a low stress "war" so don't worry about having tons of Fish Heads that will smell up your bags! A static version of the war will be available too in case you need to grab a few more.
SoulWeaver Eyes Tomix is healing up well from his surgery. His eyes have seen a huge improvement from -9 to about -1/2 which means he totally doesn't have to put up with the Curse of Foggy Glasses anymore!
I, and other glasses wearers everywhere, are seriously upset and jealous of him.
The change, though, is huge and will be an immense relief for Tomix's eye strain while he's working! He still has to meet with his doctor at the end of January, so we have a few more rockyanimation weeks left, but it looks like everything is coming into focus for our SoulWeaver!
AQ3D TwigKickstarter The Kickstarter has less than 40 hours to go and it's over 330k! Make sure you check it out before it's gone!
The holiday rush is now almost over! Tomix has escaped from his chains from this week, though! While we send the hunters out to catch him San Robin and I will be putting together a fun little quest for you on Friday.
This years Frostvale will also get a few final additions before it goes *poof* next week (most likely on Monday)! The moglin artisans have gotten together and crafted some merge style helms for your gift this year! There will also be a house shop added wil special items to help your characters try to remember everything that happened with the merge this year!
Now a word from Dracelix:
I'm still here! I'm just a really busy Paladin right now.... Due to University I've not been able to help the DF team as usual, I'll try to help when possible but education comes first after all! What I can do is show you what I've been working on!
He looks oddly like an Atealan doesn't he? I wonder...
In my spare time I'll be striving to develop my 3D sculpting talents further, which leaves me a choice:
Which NPC, Object or Weapon from DragonFable would you most want to see brought to life in full 3-Dimensions?
Let me know on the forums and I'll make a decision in a week.
After everything that has happened during (pretty much) every past Frostval you've planned for, mapped out, stratigized, imagined, and countered every possible threat that the Lore of DragonFable can throw at you... but what about the Lore in AdventureQuest Worlds?
For those of you that are still trying to gather candy ingredients from last years Frostval, we wanted to give you a quick update!
We're going to adjust the amount of candy ingredients you need to move forward. You'll only need to gather the first four ingredients (Moonglow, Breeze Essence, Dark Cocoa Nibs, Ice Essence) after we go live tonight. We're also going to add a Badge to your Book of Lore that will appear if you've taken the time to gather all eleven of the ingredients on the list!
The Frostval storybook is live! Log in now to play through all of Frostval's past and to grab the new, higher level versions of the classic weapons! There's also a brand new preview of the revamped Frost Moglin Armor (thanks Ash!)! Log in now and head to Frostvale through the button in your Book of Lore!
Amityvale Unfortunately, I write too much and poor Tomix is sick! The newest quest in Amityvale should be ready to go for you by tomorrow, though! Are you ready for Bitten, though?
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!
The Elemental Foothills in Book 3 have been expanded! The Wind Cave and Earth Cave drop more of those elemental essences, while there are some new, absolutely gorgeous water weapons from Cronix... in a hidden dungeon!
Frostval You now have until Monday to get all your Frostval badges!
More to Come! As always, everyone at the Underground Lab (and the satellite offices all over the world!) has been working on all sorts of crazy things!
This week has been a catch up week for as all the artists are working on brand new release stuff. Dracelix is working hard on the path to Swordhaven, Cronix has been hard at work on the wind elves that will populate Sulen'Eska, and Tomix is working on the quests for the Atealan armors!
We also have set upon our plan for Hero's Heart Day... and Rolith has been twirling his mustache! Which is weird cause he doesn't usually have one... I wonder where he got it!
The bad news is, we soooo ran out of time this week! (Also, chronomancer is not cooporating with the new boss! D: You'll get funny screenies until it's fixed though!)
The good news is, the world is still here, so you still get a second quest this week!
The great news is, there is still more to come from FrostVayle after this quest!
Will the Necromancer of SiOO help you find Vayle? What is Pallor up to? Can you save the moglins and get them back into their true forms?
Did anyone get my SiOO joke? Ahh, geology humor...
Dracelix is working on your presents this year and he's already made some aaaamazing stuff! The gifts will open, as usual, on January 1st! The drop you get from this quest will let you upgrade your presents as well... but you gotta save the moglins first!
Also, huuuuuge thank you to Tomix who created the boss, Oishii who added some animations, erlyrus who helped make the boss work and all the mods and AKs who helped test the quest!
A Thursday release?! Check your Frostval Storybooks for the latest quest, Finding the Red Brick Road! There are two new guests to help you along as well as a hidden shop with pumped up, color custom versions of the quest drop helms!
As you explore the Necropolis in search of Vayle... you can't help but feel as through the creepy festive atmosphere is... unusual, even for the Necropolis. Will you find Vayle within in depths? Or would that just be waaaaaay too easy?
I hope you enjoy the decorations!
Character Pages The first Frostval gift of the year is live too! The Badges section of your character pages is now updated! Yay!
It's a magical date... and, as the snow starts to fall in Falconreach and the townspeople gather for warmth the sound of... wings fills the air?
The opening cutscene for FrostVayle is now available through the Frostval storybook in the Book of Lore! Just what does this mysterious Queen want with Vayle? How did she give wings... the same wings that Vayle has... to the Frostval moglins? And what happens in ten days, on the 21st?!
Dracelix has revamped a very special set of weapons for the Frostval finale boss fight this week! Check them out in all their frosty goodness!
This Friday we'll have to face down Rolith and try to save the holiday! I don't think those poor moglins can take anymore silly hat days.... Rolith himself is programming his boss monster. Every time I ask how it's going he just starts twirling his moustache and laughing. Which is weird 'cause I'm not sure where he got the moustache from.
Friday is also going to be presents day! Dracelix has worked hard on some crazy awesome weapons to go with a very special gift from Ghost!
Chronocorrupter Time is ticking down on those Chaorrupted Clocks. If you want your chance at the exclusive Chronocorrupter Armor in DF, there are very few calendars left!
Rolith is being crazy overprotective in Frostvale this year. Will you be able to get inside and stop him? Or are you going to be stuck out in the cold during this year's Frostval? You'll be able to collect coal in this week's quest to upgrade your presents once they open too!
The TogTog House and organ furniture is also available in Chapter 6 of the Frostval Storybook too! Tomix and Dracelix made some really cool items to go inside of it!
Happy Birthday to Dracelix and Tomix as well! Dracelix has made a special glaive that can be bought through the News Post!
The stockings have been hung on the super-fortified boundry fence patrolled by fierce togs with care...
It's going to have to be a stealthy Frostval this year if you want in!
TogTog Poor Togtog was taken down too soon by that rogue ice golem. Tomix has worked hard to create a nice, cozy one room house for you to enjoy.
Sorry about the smell, but it'll keep you nice and warm this Frostval season. It shouldn't be so bad inside if you fung shui the organ furniture that Tomix and Dracelix are making!
Frostvale Break-In The only way you're getting in Frostvale this holiday season is if you break in! Rolith has gone crazy overboard protecting the moglins this year and you have to make sure he doesn't keep out all the holiday cheer as well. You're going to have to get past his packs of roving togs first.... Better hope you can make it through!
This week's release is slated for... tomorrow! The Underground Lab is shutting down for it's own de-togging over the holidays (we can only do that when Rolith is out of town, so it's the perfect time right now.) so look for the new quest, hopefully*, tomorrow! There's a lot to do, so back to work I go to make sure the release isn't too late....
In testing now! The boss fight is almost ready! Wow... just wow guys, good job!
Update: I borked something. Rolith to the rescue. I owe him some togsitting or something!
Update to the update: I'm so desperate to get this working I have Rolith working on this from a bathroom. It's the only room where he's staying that has an available outlet. So he's fixing the cutscene.... on a toilet. I owe him BIG TIME.
Update to the update to the update: Added the villain/anti-hero plushies to Cysero's Rare Pet Shop for you guys (they are permanently there).
Update x 4: I miss Ghost. He rocks. Rolith rocks too!
Update x 5: It works! It works! Thank you so much for being patient! The weapons are in and you'll notice a level 61 option. The level cap will go up on Monday!
Yet another update: Lim fixed the plushie pets already! I have to go into the database and change them to pets one by one, but if you clear cache everything should work. HUGE thank you to Verlyrus, he helped get stuff tested for you guys tonight!
Also, special thanks to my nephew, Jacob, for leaving his crayons behind after Christmas and to my Dad for the copious amount of paper I recycled. Also, that huge heart on the last page, totally not covering a mutant Maya head. Nope, def not. I hope you guys enjoyed the cutscene!
Update x7: Brand new Defender's Rings and Necklaces are now available!
Final Update: The Frostval Celebration has begun in Frostvale! Any presents still in inventories have been burst open so their plushie elementals can escape to wreak havoc in their owner's inventory and the presents shop, with all the presents in it, is now available from the storybook!
Special Addendum to the previous Design Notes! Happy New Years Eve to you all! I just wanted to clarify what's going to be released this weekend so no one misses anything and to firmly establish what the War Challenge is!
This week's release is: * War boss fight with foam weapons as rewards * Suggestion shop weapons in Serenity's Suggestion Shop * Fireworks for New Years * A special weapon set, helm and cape from True Mortal in Cysero's Shop at midnight * The presents opening at midnight * AND the Togicide from Rolith!
The War Challenge is, if you guys get to 100% before midnight on Saturday (EST) and beat me to finishing the final war quest you will get new levels on select defender's items (I think rings and necklaces, but I haven't decided 100% on that) and something special in Cysero's Shop.
Lim, being the evil genius that he is, has added a little taste of the special items that will be in Cysero's Shop as a rare drop the war waves. He's saying that he'll add a new ones when he notices the war is at 75%, 85% and 95%.... D;<
Unfortunately, poor Ghost is sick with pneumonia. Even though he's been zombified he still bravely tried to get the final war cutscene done for you guys, but the combination of zombie and Ghost had Artix on high alert. I've sent Ghost off to rest so that he gets better.
Though, this means that the geologist gets to make the final war cutscene.
(Well, with existing artwork but, still, I'm slightly panicking here.)
True Mortal has made some cool foam weapons as war rewards in addition to his contest weapons. (I could totally see the guys chasing each other around the office with these.)
Tomix has finished the final, very angry, slightly crazed Boss Plushie and Rolith has coded it, laughing manically the whole time. Lim is coming in and working on some of the presents. Alina is being awesome and helping me with database stuff even though she's on vacation.
So, I just have to make an awesome, amazing cutscene before you guys reach 100%.
Please fight slower.... :s
If you guys do manage to beat me (who am I kidding?) then I'll make sure to add something special to Cysero's Shop!
DISTRACTION!(fight sloooooooower) You can get FREE DragonCoins and even FREE BATTLEON POINTS through AExtras! You can also jump onto your Master Account and start earning free BattleOn Games Points using AExtras and use those Points to get stuff in ANY of our games!
Message to Ghost: First of all, you so better be in bed and resting and not reading this! If you are, don't stress and just get well soon! We got this! Maybe... Kinda... (fight sloooooooooooooooooooower) Feel better!
I hope everyone is having a good holiday season! After a looong trip up north, I've been spending it with family and trying to make sure my parents cat, Lucy, doesn't beat up my cat (or vice versa).
Strike! The poor moglins of Frostvale are stuck working in Zadd's factory this year. They don't even get breaks for Moglinberry Juice! Can you rally them together and get them to strike? Only you can fight through Zadd's ever increasing army of plushies and save the holiday season!
At 50% a special DA only quest will be unlocked that will give access to a special set of holiday rare merge items!
Things have been crazy here at the lab as we all work furiously on each game's Frostval releases in a flurry of new art and a frenzy of new code! (But the only flurries we've seen are here at the Secret Underground Lab. The sky remains, as usual, free of snowflakes. /sadface!)
And what can YOU expect from DragonFable this week? An avalanche of new content!
We've got the second Frostval release full of perilous plushies that will actually move to intercept you as you try to rescue the moglins trapped by that treacherous- oh, wait, you don't know who the villain is yet. No matter, you'll find that out this week! It's not Frostval unless some villain somewhere is plotting to bring an end to the season's merriment and joy, right? Right! And it's YOUR job to restore them!
We've also got a major update to the Falconreach Guardian Tower Arena! Where once there was only one arena with a couple monsters, now there will be FIVE arenas! And five different groups of monsters to battle! Can you become the Champion of the Arena? Take a look at some of the rewards that you'll be able to claim with enough wins there:
And that's not all! We've also got a HUGE walkaround area coming this Friday! Ghost has outdone himself with a pathway filled with new art that will connect FIVE different zones and towns! You'll have a LOT of exploring to do, Adventurers! Those armored boots were made for walking, and that's just what you'll have to do! (Only enchanted armor boots will walk all over you, and the only pair in Lore are owned by Cysero, and he's not sharing. Too dangerous.)
Have fun speculating on what you'll find in this week's release, guys! And before I go, a forum question: What villain would you like to see return in the next holiday event? (Heroes Heart Day looks like it's next, right?)
