[1] What is the Moral Compass?



This compass tracks all the changes in your alignment including the changes of Good to Evil and Chaos to Unity. How do you find your moral compass? Go to Twilly in the town of Battleon and click "Show me my Moral Compass!". Once you do, an image like the above will appear. Click on the massive green dot, and your compass opens! Upon starting in AdventureQuest, your Moral Compass will be completely balanced. As you progress through the main story, you will come across quests and wars with alignment-based actions and cutscenes and alignment-changing options. Alignment affects the cutscenes you view and the rewards you have access to. This guide goes through and details the quests in which you can change your alignment.




[2] How do I read the Moral Compass?



This is your moral compass open. On yours, there will be a starburst, as you complete different quests with options which affect your alignment, the position of the starburst will change or remain stable depending on your actions.

Look at this coordinate plane:



The Moral Compass is a coordinate plane. The starburst represents the point your alignment stands at. It can be as much as 6 in each category. Therefore, being at the corners of each quadrant is best. How do you change your alignment? By doing the quests below. With each choice you make in these quests, your Evil/Good and Chaos/Unity alignment shifts towards/away from the 6 that you can reach.

Alignments can go to 17, but currently they have a maximum of +6 and a minimum of -6. However, The Beginning of The End can shift your Chaos/Unity Alignment to 7 if you are currently at 6.




[3] How it is influenced/What it influences

The Moral Compass is affected by quests. Below is a list of all the quests that you can do which effect it. (All of these are taken from the Story of the Devourer on Lore.) Also, the prizes from wars that can influence the compass are below. Below that are the equipment/cutscenes that are influenced by the compass, but that aren't necessarily in a war itself. (Thanks to the 'pedia AKs for that entry.)

War of the Clans! - In this war, you can choose to be Unity or Chaos. It is quite a quick way to become either - and they both influence the prize from that war....the
