This guide is for players who stopped playing AdventureQuest Worlds for a while and are now returning to the game. Since AQW gets updated every week, there are many releases to sort through, which can be confusing at times. This guide seeks to organize those releases in an easy-to-understand manner. For extra, more detailed information, you can also check out the AQWWiki's Chronicle of Releases. You can also read the Design Notes for in-depth information on releases.

In this guide, releases are listed by year in ascending order (later releases are at the bottom), starting with the first release after Beta testing closed in 2008. Releases are organized by what storyline they belong to, with one-shot releases appearing at the bottom. Seasonal releases, such as holidays and birthdays, are placed in a separate section at the start of the guide. If possible, releases will be linked to their corresponding design notes post. At the top of each section for a certain year, there is an overview summarizing the events of the year.

Rare releases will not be included in this guide. Legend-only releases will be marked in bold.
