This Weekend: Return to Crownsreach
Will YOU ally with Chaos?
It is said that "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" -- and in this case, that is VERY true! On Friday, March 24th, journey to Crownsreach and talk to Drakath - the former Champion of Chaos. He is plotting his return to power after the Queen of Monsters stripped it from him... and humiliated him in front of the entire world.


Will you ally with him to take down the Queen of Monsters? If your answer is YES (or if you just want to check out what this long-time enemy is getting up to) /join Crownsreach to find...


  • 15 new quests and 5 new shops from...
  • 5 new NPCs, each with quests and/or a shop of their own
  • A NEW reputation to rank up: Chaos Militia and 17 new items for it
  • 10 new items for the existing Chaos faction rep shop
  • 8 new pets to buy (including 2 for AdventureCoins, no membership required!)
  • 4 tasty potions to enhance your gameplay
  • The Chaos Contract for those brave (or rebellious) enough to ally with Chaos

    Meet the Residents of CrownsReach
    When plotting to re-take over the world, it's important to surround yourself with people you trust. Drakath, having been betrayed once, has taken pains to vet his new companions. Meet the crew:


  • Cemaros the Chaotic: Chaos Reputation Vendor
  • Gesar, the Chaorrupted Blacksmith: Gear shop NPC
  • Skoa, the Cryptozoologist: Pet shop NPC
  • Dr. Havelock, the Mad Chemist: Food & Drink shop NPC
  • Iaste, the Militia Leader: Militia leader NPC

    Rank up your Chaos Faction rep to unlock new gear from Cemaros, check out Gesar's gear shop, and do NOT poke your fingers into the cages in Skoa's Chaotic Critter cave.

    For the Dedicated: Chaos Awaits
    Since AQWorlds began, we've had heroes asking for the ability to choose a Chaos Alignment, just like you can choose Good or Evil. Chaotic Good, Neutral, and Evil heroes... your TIME is almost here!

    Talk to Cemaros to choose a Chaos Alignment. You'll need the Chaos Contract (sold for 100,000 gold). Once you choose this, your character page will change to show the Chaos Hero alignment.


    If you are TRULY dedicated - and have rank 10 Chaos rep - YOU can begin Iaste's quests to rank up your Crownsreach Militia faction. Those who do will become Drakath's MOST dedicated, and trusted, battle companions.

    I seriously thought that the secret room was behind the bookshelf. Oh well!


    Also, Cemaros...

    I've noticed that the past few times we've had boost weekends, it's only been 15% rather than the old 2x.
    I support this because it doesn't completely break progression, although I'm curious about whether we'll ever have something like +25% or even +50% again.

    Also curious about whether there's going to be any more Dreadfire, Infernal Army, or Chaos Militia rep sources in the future, which will decide whether I dump time into the new thing over this weekend.

    What is the purpose of the Chaos Tunneler?

    I have killed it about 20 times and it has dropped nothing.

    It's for a rep-grinding quest, 300 rep a kill. No drops yet, but hey, could just be low drops.

    Cemaros actually says darn, it's just hard to see with the normal zoom.

    She's not a potty mouth... as far as I know.

    Oh, I see it now. Guess I jumped to a conclusion too soon.

    So Ceramos says something along the lines of Chaos wanting to tear down Order, but what order is there to tear down? I mean, there's no Champion of Order in Lore, so what's stopping the universe from dissolving into pure chaos?

    So what was with the Artix message of "Daimyo and I are on our nightly walk... slaying the evil undead of DoomWood"
    Am I missing something important?
    Should I be out there with Artix destroying the undead horde?

    A few NPCs are not Chaorrupted.

    Chaos Tunneler is a recycled and altered version of Chaos Drifter. Cemaros called it a worm.

    Ok, so how do you get Chaos Militia Rep?
    All the quests in Crownsreach are just giving Chaos Rep standard for me.

    I'm going to throw all my gold on the table and say that this release has been the absolute best thing to be released on AQW in 5 whole years. We finally learn the truth behind our former enemy, and learn that we've fought against a necessary force and that we attempted to get rid of it for good. The premise of Crownsreach is pretty much this...

    spoiler:

    The Hero was the real evil all along for trying to cause true imbalance between Unity and Chaos. It was never Chaos that tried to cause imbalance, it was us all this time.


    Plus the Chaos alignment was the one thing most of us wanted since the very start, and we finally have it. As said, best release in ages. Kudos to the team.

    @flyingmongoose:
    If I have to guess, it might have something to do with Daimyo, the real life pet of Artix, having some complication with its heart since it's too big.

    Major thanks to whoever added the Eye of Chaos character page background! I've been wanting to use this as my background for the longest time.

    Are there any ac tagged drops ? All i see are non member rep items and ac items to buy.Nothing actually gives me a chance or motivation to join chaos.Example joining evil grants be access to farming some quests from Nation or Legion,being good does other things.Like for now joining chaos gives 0 motivation to join it.

    He was just visiting AQWorlds & AQ3D to say hi; Don't think it was anything special.

    I'm a little disappointed that the Chaos Slayer Rogue Darkblood Armor(whew, that's a mouthful) wasn't in the Shops. And I wish that most of the Rep Quests in /crownsreach were changed from Chaos to Chaos Militia; by now, almost everyone has Chaos to Rank 10. No need to have more ways to get Chaos, especially since there's a Daily Quest that rewards 5,000 Chaos.

    The last thing I would like to mention is the lack of drops from the monsters(specifically the Chaos Tunneler). They removed a Merge Shop(with no Rare-tagged items) & removed a boss with drops, too, with no apparent explanation. I mean, the boss makes sense, but they could've just moved the Merge Shop somewhere else.

    I did like the secret sparring room & secret tunnel in the map, though. We need more of that stuff, like the hidden room in /boxes or the hidden tunnel/shop in /thunderfang. And adding new items for existing Factions is a big plus, I hope they do more in the future.

    I'm over here wondering what's with Drakath's NPC model. His hair is on fire. His hair is on fire! And it's purple fire! Why is his hair on fire? I thought it motif was eyes and tentacles, not weird fire! Also, one of his eyes is this purple glowing thing. But seriously, his is on fire. Is he going to set the rest of Crownsreach on fire too with his hair? How hot is the flame? I know that blue flames are hotter than red flames, but I don't know how hot purple flames are!

    @ShatteredReality

    I think that's just how he looks now, after his scars in the past, both from battling us, and his trip to the QoM. Remember, during our "final battle" with him in /Ultradrakath, he looked more or less the same.

    It seems you are confusing this release with the Friday the 13th release. The maps may look similar, but they are not the same. With the release of the Crownsreach hub, the F13 map has been renamed.

    In short, they are two seperate events (each with their own map), that just takes place in the same area.

    It would appear that I am mistaken, unless a staff can say otherwise. From what I understood, and from experience with previous events-turned-hubs, renaming the event map and using the original name for the new hub, is how it has been done in the past, so I assume this would be the same.

    Sounds like you haven't completed the Chaos finale. It shows Drakath transforming into his new self, though he must have replaced his armor since.

    So, what's the renamed map then? Afaik, it's been replaced with the new location rather than renamed.

    I'll be checking on this first thing Monday morning. It's already on my To-Do List. Will update when I have more info.

    I actually did complete the chaos saga. I'm just wondering why his hair is still on fire. You'd think that it'd go out whenever it rained, right?
