This weekend we're launching a month of events celebrating AdventureQuest Worlds' 14th birthday (and Artix Entertainment's 20th anniversary) a day early with an all-new world boss based on one of Lore's most iconic monsters: Nightmare Carnax! Read on for more details about everything coming this weekend.
This weekend's game update features:
Your heroic adventures through the universe have slowly but surely been causing ripples in the timeline… And now they’ve come together to create another universal threat: Nightmare Carnax. Log in this weekend to enter the Nightmare Realm and fight a brand new World Boss to save our world!
Carnax has risen and been defeated twice in another timeline; now, the monster has found its way into the AdventureQuest Worlds universe and is forming again here! (You can battle through Carnax's first two appearances right now in the original AdventureQuest)
NightMare Carnax World Boss:

24 Merge Shop Items:
For all you fans of the Nightmare Queen, good news! Her armor + accessories will be added as daily login gift drops in October.
World Bosses were first introduced to AQW earlier this year in April, when the giant Chickencow from outer space took over Battleon by storm. Here’s what you need to know about Nightmare Carnax’s fight:
Unlike the Chickencow however, this fight will be more difficult and more unique, so bring out your best for this fight! Along with this fight will be several cool cosmetic sets, including a few powerful boosted items.
Here’s a few tips on how to fight the boss:

This weekend's new gear is themed after some of our most iconic Naval Commander sets, and drops in seasonal from monsters in our seasonal TLaPD event maps. Get'em while you can. TLaPD leaves next Friday, October 7th.
* Unlike last time, health synchronization will happen in the background, so no more gigantic damage numbers randomly appearing!
** The boss mechanic has to keep up all of the player data in sync, which means it increases the load exponentially with the # of players in the room.
*** Don't forget, there are settings in the Advanced Options tab to help you reduce lag.
**** This set was one of the winning designs by the 2021 TLaPD Set Design contest. The other winning sets will be released in-game this year, but are not a part of the collection chest, and will not go rare.
