YARRRRR! Friday the 13th is making landfall RIGHT NOW! Back in 2012, Aurelio Voltaire sailed to Pirate’s Bay, but his ship sunk just off the coast. The wreckage has lain at the bottom of the sea, undisturbed (?!), ever since... and so has the treasure it carried. His candy-loving companion, Hargoyle, set off to recover it, and hasn't been seen since. This year, log in and battle through a sunken pirate ship alongside Aurelio Voltaire in our double holiday event: the Sea Witch's Curse!
You think Friday the 13 superstitions are scary? Just wait until you battle these bloodthirsty sea monsters—THEN you’ll know the true definition of scary! And brace yourself… because the Wicked Item of Donated Awesomeness is live in the Wheel of Doom Merge Shop!
This weekend, /join merrowtrench to begin a cursed underwater adventure and...
Event reward drops include the seasonal Cursed DeckStalker set, the rare Doomed DeckStalker set, the Waterlogged Zombie armor, a boss-themed armor set, unlucky 13th pirate accessories, and the Cursed Guitar of DOOM!
Aurelio Voltaire is the maker of music, films, books, comics, toys and... mayhem. He has appeared in almost ALL of the AQWorlds Friday the 13th events... and has become a fan-favorite for our players (not to mention beloved by goths, trekkies, and music-lovers in general). If you aren't familiar with his music or other works, you should check his site out here.
In addition to being an incredible artist, he's a downright amazing person to work with, and we're incredibly grateful for the time and energy he spent helping us with the release. (Especially since a few email gremlins sent most of his messages to our spam boxes! O_O) On behalf of the entire AQWorlds team, we want to thank Voltaire for being a part of this special event!
Last week, we talked about some upcoming changes to the Wheel of Doom, to make how Treasure Potion drops work clearer.
Live this week:
Still to come:
