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!
It's almost time for Frostval in Frostvale! The moglins are busily making cookies, wrapping gifts, stringing lights, and maintaining watch while you and Icemaster Yeti scope out weak spots in the defenses. This year there won't be any moglin-napping! It's sure to be quiet, right?
There was no visible sign of Thursday at the Darkness Tower... and Raven took off before you question Frydae more throughly. Did the werewolves manage to finally capture Thursday after their failed attempt during the Full Moon war? Or will your reckless run through the woods end in blood?
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?
As you and Raven rush south to try and find some... any sign of Thursday, the clock continues to tick down. Where did she go? Did someone take her? Is she even still alive or... has she been reborn as something new? You must find her before yours and Raven's worst fears come true!
This week you'll search through the werewolf camps in the Doomwood south of Amityvale but will you find what you seek? Or will blindly rushing from one possible enemy to the next bite you in the behind?
The Black Friday shop is now live! This year we've gone simple and classy (and kept Twig away from the markers) and Tomix has recolored some of the most popular weapons and items that we've released this past year for you snatch up for your heroes! The best part is, there's no lines!
The mysterious letter you got that sent you to the Deadlands in search of a scrap of cloak has now been moved to everyone's favorite letter-keeper, Ash! So if you still haven't had time to get your relic, never fear, the quest is still available!
Unfortunately, the quest for this week does need to be delayed until tomorrow. We apologize but we need juuuuuust a little more time to defrost the tofurkey (and animate some stuff).
Tomorrow is Turkey Day in the US and we wanted to wish all our players, both in the US and out, a happy day of feasting and football and tryptophan induced naps! San Robin and Tomix are working hard on the conclusion of our Thankstaking rescue for Friday!
December After this Thankstaking we head into the super busy month of December! We’ll be heading from the feast in Falconreach to the isle of Sho’Nuff (and a weekend of pirate versus ninja shenanigans), then back to Amityvale and our desperate search for Thursday, then waaaaaay up north into the icy village of Frostvale*! Wouldn’t it be really nice if all the NPCs in all the games could spend Frostval together?
I just wanted to give fair warning that sometime this evening, probably around midnight EST but possibly earlier, the game will be going down for about an hour. Rolith has taken some time from his busy schedule to make some updates to systems we use to track quests, armors, and skills!
With Thursday missing, and your only clue being the blood magic infused gift she took with her, it's time to head into the Doomwood to find the ancient Darkness Tower and question it's ancient inhabitant, Lord Frydae XIII! Will you find Thursday there? Will she still be human?
This week you will confront Lord Frydae to find out his involvement with Thursday's locket and her disappearance. You'll also get to find out more tidbits of information regarding Frydae's past and there's even a mention of the Drakath* dynasty!
*Yes, you’ve been calling Drakath by his last name the whole time! Long, loooong ago it might have been different but, it’s been said, if you try and call them Slugwrath now it’s taken as an insult!
It's Mogloween once more! After everything that's happened in the past few years, you deserve some time off to enjoy the holiday! This is the perfect chance to catch up with the Cauldron Sisters and find out how things have been going for them. This week you'll be able to do just that! I know they've been looking forward to seeing you after all this time so it should be a fun and relaxing visit. They've had 6 years to work out all the issues with the candy making process so there shouldn't be any issues at all this year!
The DF team has battled through sickness to bring you a new quest (late) this week! A mysterious gift infused with strange magic has been left in Thursday's room. She refuses to give up her new necklace and now more danger seems to be gathering outside Amityvale's walls!
The search for the OmniKnight Blade is going strong! How many artifacts have you found yet?
If you're having trouble, Alina has created a wonderful guide to help you get back on track! Make sure to check your Artix Account info to make sure all your games are linked to the same account and remember that your EpicDuel, HeroSmash, and Oversoul accounts all use the same login as your Artix Account!
It's Artix Entertainments 12th Anniversary! Get ready for unlimited smoothies while you break apart bad guys!
You've also received a mysterious letter in your Book of Lore! Something… evil has arisen in the Wastelands and you need to get out there to find it! If you can recover it, you’ll get a brand new artifact reward which, when you’re using any of the original base classes, will give you a 50% chance to obtain an extra potion when you use your Final Skill!
You can track your progress on the official page here!
Coming Soon! Tomix has a wonderful new surprise for you guys too! He's been working very hard on a new map interface and will be finishing it up for next week!
This week you guys will get to take a closer look at Magus Neron. He needs your help with a special mission that his own soldiers have been unable to carry out. Will you brave the Doomwood surrounding Amityvale on one of the Blood Patrols? The creatures of the night are waiting….
If you're successful in your mission, a special cape created by Dracelix will be your reward!
Earlier in the week we shared NPC art that is being worked on for two of the major players that will appear later in the Book 3 Amityvale arc. Tonight, I want to share a little bit about what you guys can expect for tomorrow!
Magus Neron has a very important task that he can only trust to a hero... someone not afraid of werewolves, vampires, or curses! Which is pretty much you. Will you head out on one of the Blood Patrols that protects the walls of Amityvale? All the creatures of the night that lurk in the shadows of the woods are waiting for you....
The ancient, beautiful Queen of Vampires has awoken and now looks to reestablish her bygone kingdom of Darkovia and fill her eventide halls and lands with purely vampiric citizens! The Moon has begun to wane and phase over the Doomwood, though, as the presence of the Rose is slowly draining the magic from the land... and the long-standing pact that once ensured permanent night might be shattered by the coming dawn.
A former King, Lord Frydae XIII has skulked in the shadows waiting, and watching, for the perfect descendant to pass along the gift of immortality... the gift of vampirism! Thursday is that descendant. She is the one who will became the face of his new class of elite vampires that will rule over the Doomwood!
As the years have passed, Frydae has become bolder. He’s begun to welcome vampires that he deems worthy to his court in his dark tower and he has forced even more vampiric ghouls and werewolves into his service. The more blood he gorges on, the younger and more vigorous he feels… the better to compete with the beautiful vampire that leads the other nest in Doomwood….
Yar, me hearties! It be Talk Like A Pirate Day! A day wherebe ev'ry pirate worth his salt celebrates a year of good winds, calm seas, 'n bountiful booty wit' a fresh smoothie wit' th' crew! Trouble be a a'brewin' in Osprey Cove tho'! Mazurek's Autumn Wind 'n Rhubarb's Red Betty both be in th' port... 'n th' Cap's's and th' crews be gettin' ready to brawl!
Fer this week, there be a Pirate Challenge t' complete! Choose yer side 'n help collect booty fer the Cap'n o' yer choosin'! Th' Cap'n wit' th' biggest pile o' booty by next week will be rewardin' ye a treasure fer yer help!
Lots o' new treasures be available fer DC, if yer wantin' gear now! Thar also be rumors o' a wicked edge that might be found wit' pirate booty!
Now, here be a word from Ash!
This week we have a fancy new Trinket for you! Tomix animated the attack and Verly and I worked on it to give it a neat effect.
Every time you use the trinket you have a 20% chance to gain half your level's worth of gold for that battle! So if you're a level 50 character, and you see the popup, you'd get 25 gold added right onto your earned gold for that quest! You can have it happen multiple times during the same quest too!
There's also a SECOND benefit to owning it. During this challenge to help either Rhubarb or Mazurek collect the most booty, as long as you have the trinket in your bag you'll contribute an ADDITIONAL count of booty to your chosen side. That's 2 for 1 run!
Book 3 Amityvale is now live! Dracelix and Tomix put a lot of work into this new, safer, more secure town. While it still lives under the threat of vampires, werewolves, ghouls, yagas, lawyers, and more, the strong walls and the presence of the Rose keeps the townpeople safe... as long as they don't wander too far!
This week you'll be able to explore "The Other Well" and "Swamp Lake" in an effort to help townskitties and to find clues for Thursday. The town Alchemsmith also has a new set of poison weapons for sale!
For a fun note, 1098 quests and towns have been created since the "Crystal Clear Lake" quest... which sees it's remake/refresh tonight in Swamp Lake!
As the weeks go on though, Thursday will become even more obsessed with finding out the reason for her being hunted. Will you and Raven be able to keep her safe from all the factions in Doomwood (not just the werewolves) that want to get ahold of her? All new quests are coming soon!
This week we have an update to Book 1 Shadow of the Wind Village! Thyton needs your help to stop the rogue Stone Ninjas and their summoning of the evil Tomamo! The woods outside the village are vst and dangerous but, if you can stop the Tomamo before he's fully charged, the Mirror's Eye trinket could be yours!
Ravenloss The finale of the Book 3 Ravenloss arc will continue next week!
Cronix Birthday Shop The Time Core Edge is now available! Hunt Cronix down in game before he disappears to check out this amazing element-switching weapon!
Today is Cronix's birthday so please make sure to wish him well! In celebration his NPC is hidden somewhere in game with a shop fill of special goodies for you! Make sure to find him before he's gone...!
