We've got new news for you to digest as you grab your coffee, tea, or energy potion of choice! Return later today for more information on our changes to the Wheel of Doom's Treasure Potions (discussed in this post).
Today's Daily Login Gift is now available: Battle the Eldritch Amalgamation in /brokenwoods to get four new 0 AC Diabolical items.
During their time as community artists* Dominik and DesperaMon made many popular sets. Now, we're excited to bring them onto the AdventureQuest Worlds team to work even more closely with us
The 0 AC Frostlord Hair and Locks (without scarf accessory) are now available as seasonal item drops from the Bandits in Snowviewrace. (h/t to AQW Hero Xelsear for sending the suggestion last year.)
In case you misssed it, the Candycane Capybara drops off of the Frostval Deer in the /carolinn map! Get yours while you can. Our seasonal Frostval events, maps, and rewards leave this Friday the 13th with the new release.
AQW community artist Kartos si Botax is celebrating his IRL birthday by giving you his personal Axe of the Archipelago! Battle the Chillbite in the /everfrost map until January 31st, when our New Year's Eve event maps leave for another year.
* artists who began as members of our community, then leveled up to become contractors who create art on a per project basis
Hello everyone! It's been a crazy few weeks, with the new year starting and preparing for everything to come this month and in the next few months. We've been seeing questions and feedback after last week's Design Notes posts; I wanted to give everyone a quick update tonight, so you know where everything stands, and then I'll do a larger post tomorrow with more details.
Where is the Honorable Hero 2022 Award?
That will arrive later this week. Keep an eye out tomorrow for Design Notes on who is eligible and what the rewards are.
Where is the free AC gift for Frostval?
That will also arrive later this week! There will be a quest for you to claim your free gift. We'll have details in tomorrow's Design Notes post.
When will the Frostval AC Gifting Event Rewards arrive?
Those will release as soon as humanly possible. We've got a bit more work to do on them still, so I'll give everyone an update later on in the week.
Changes to the Wheel of Doom's Treasure Potions
Last week, we announced that in response to a lot of frustration from many players, we changed the Treasure Potion rewards. We made it so that you'd start getting the 6 TP once you got all but one of the Wheel drops. (181/182 drops).
After the announcement, we saw posts from players who wished this change had been made a long time ago. If the new criteria were active back then, they would have a lot more TP today.
We hear you. Our goal with this change is to make getting your rewards smoother, less frustrating, and give you a more positive experience overall. We want that for everyone. We're currently looking at how best to address this for affected players who would have met the criteria if it were active in the past.
I will have more details for you tomorrow, after Captain Rhubarb and I both get some much needed sleep.
(Time to engage those real-life Chronomancy powers... and cast a Mana Buff on Captain Rhubarb, who's reviewing the solution options!)
