Shadows, Phoenixes, and Unicorn Treasures OH MY

This weekend, log into AQWorlds for an adventure through the shadows as we celebrate the real-life birthday of AQWorlds artist, Lae! The Mysterious Figure is waiting for you now in the ShadowRealm with a cryptic artifact and a new Hollowborn Faction adventure. The disturbingly-sentient helmet next to him is the source of the whispers you've been hearing. Decipher its cryptic mutters to begin a series of quests which may lead to a deadly trap… or great treasure!

Have you explored the Hollowborn Faction yet?

A faction of warriors (or creatures?... or both?!) exists among the shadows of that dark realm. Known only as the Hollowborn, they appear to be lead by man named Lae. We do not know much about him... Yet. If you aren't familiar with them, find Kaselbel in the /shadowrealm and complete her quests to earn Hollowborn Rep and to unlock dark rewards in the merge shop. 

  • Hollowborn Thunderlord armor set
  • Hollowborn Vampire armor set
  • and more gear to come in the future

Once you find the enigmatic Lae, if you can convince him to talk, he'll tell you of a deep, dark fortress. Travel there and you'll find a series of quests that only the highest leveled heroes should begin. Complete them to unlock the exclusive Hollowborn Paladin armor set.
