Save the Honorable Boar Spirit
Our Yokai New Year Celebration continues this weekend!
Join Empress Miko this weekend as our Yokai New Year celebration continues! But before the celebration can begin, the people of Akiba need your help. Zhū the Honorable Boar is trapped, caught in a mysterious sleep enchantment. Enter his dreams and battle to free him, then get ready to /party!

Join akibacny and fight to save the party!

  • Quest to enter Zhū's dream
  • Fight through Zhū's memories to discover what happened to him
  • Battle the creature who sought to keep him trapped... forever

    Yokai New Year Rewards
    Our featured event farming set was crafted by the super-dedicated, Yokai New Year-loving AQW community guest artist, Nakana Rei! Fight this weekend's event boss to collect the pieces of the Zhū Ronin armor set!

    In AQW it has become tradition that we sell a Non-Member AC pet to go with the theme of the Chinese New year. This year it's the Lucky Coin Pig pet to honor the year of the pig! Find that pet and the Boaruto's Father cape in the Featured Gear Shop in your game menu.

    We are adding a few awesome-but-rare items that you will never see again (sad face if you miss out)!

  • Floating Pigs cape
  • 3 Little Pigs pet
  • Lucky Coin Pig pet

    You will also find a ton member and non-member Seasonal Items returning to earn while the Yokai New Year event lasts! Happy New Year!

    Class Buffs: Chunin + Artifact Hunter
    This week, we wrapped up our February birthday class buffs with Chunin and Artifact Hunter.

    Chunin Changes: To increase its viability, we wanted to address two things that you all wanted to see change: its heal (or lack thereof) and the self-stun on Chi Blast.

  • New Auto Attack default Auto Attack is now a unique auto attack called Chi Strike (has a chance to apply a small heal over time effect + attacks two monsters)
  • Chi Blast Changes removed the self-stun effect and increased Chi Blastís damage
  • Monster Target Changes all of Chuninís skills now target only two monsters (to prevent drawing more aggro than you can manage)

    When coupled with its already impressive damage mitigation, the Chi Strike auto attack gives Chunin the sustainability it needs to farm without taking rest breaks or relying on a healer. And by targeting two close range monsters, you further increase the amount of damage you can deal to both targets.

    Because most Chunin users would almost never trade Chi Blast's high damage for its self-stun, we removed the self-stun effect, and to ensure itís on par with newer classes, its damage was buffed.

    Artifact Hunter Changes: To address its mana issues, its second skill will now always result in a critical hit.

    Last Chance for Nulgath Birthday Gear
    We celebrated Nulgath the ArchFiendís birthday celebration last month, and it's almost time for his birthday shop to leave for the year. Find the Void Rebirth and Void Awakening sets in your game menu until next Friday, February 15th.

    And don't miss your chance to get the color-custom version. Once the shop leaves, it will NEVER be available again!

    New Doom Set: Yokai Senshi
    Available in the Wheel of Doom and Merge shop!
    The Wheel of Doom spins round and round... and this week, as we celebrate the new year in Yokai Isle (and China celebrates its lunar new year) we've got an all-new, party-ready set for you -- the Yokai Senshi!

    New Gear from the Wheel of Doom!
    We know a lot of you are raring to redeem your free spins... so we're adding a full new Epic rarity set for you, crafted by AQW Community Artist, Bido! Each of the Yokai Senshi set pieces will be available from the Wheel of Doom and from the Doom merge shop. This set will return each year during the event.

    Pieces of the set include:

  • Yokai Senshi armor
  • Yokai Kabuto Mask
  • Yokai Kabuto Helmet
  • Senshi's Guard cape
  • Kogane no Yumi
  • Kogane no Yari
  • Kogane no Katana
  • Kogane no Ha
  • Dual Kogane no Ha

    All our seasonal Winter Wheel of Doom gear - including the Yokai Senshi set - will leave leave Wednesday, March 20th, the first day of Spring. This gear will return next year during the Winter months.

    Get your Free Spins
    Everyone loves to get prizes... and that's why we brought back back free spins for the Wheel of Doom!

  • Members get one free spin a day while their upgrade is active
  • All players get one free spin a week.

    See the Free Spins Design Notes for more details.

    Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness
    We've gotten a lot of really positive feedback after introducing the free spins... but also a lot of you who wanted 1) a way to make sure you got an Item of Donated Awesomeness and 2) kept spinning in a quest to get the Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness to drop from the Wheel... and then not didn't get it.

    That's why, earlier this month, we introduced the Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness. This item is available from the Doom Merge Shop, so even if you don't receive the EIoDA as a bonus prize, you can save up your Treasure Potions and get the PIoDA.

    Important Points

  • The PIoDA will be a Wheel of Doom merge shop exclusive.
  • Cost: 1,000 Treasure Potions.
  • You can get both the EIoDA (from the Wheel) and the PIoDA (from the merge shop)
  • The PIoDA currently stacks up to x5. We are looking at ways to increase this by popular demand.

    At a cost of 1,000 Treasure Potions, that means a member who ONLY uses their one free spin per day/week will need to log in every day for about 2.5 years to get it... but they WILL get it eventually.

    * Exceptions include staff personal items, custom weapon contest prizes, HeroMart items, etc

    Alright AQW, could you please stop with the 20+ helm rewards in releases?

    Tonight's AQW release wasn't the worst. Quick to complete and it helped the quest npc basically followed us so we could turn in quests easy. But with that said, the issue of having way too many rewards was evident at the boss fight. I like variety as much as the next player but when a large majority of drops are nothing but helms, that's not right. Perhaps instead some could have been added to maybe a shop in the akiba map?

    I did my research, so I already know next year's CNY stats. Looking forward to the discussion!

    I had no idea that the Nine-Tailed Fox named Jing was wanting to horn in on Zhu's territory.

    They are saying that next Chinese New Year will be the Year of the Rat.

    I liked the buffs given in the classes.
    hopefully soon Heromart classes take buff.
    the Dragonlord and others as well.
    the game went up a lot.

    @Beshin Adin

    So you are saying that we'll be dealing with something rat-related in 2020. Who knows what Yokai Isle's residental rat character would be!

    I like that older classes are getting buffs nd becoming more well rounded but... what about the badge tracker classes?

    Supposedly, Alina was working on the mini zones alone, and that's delayed the whole thing. The classes have been ready to go for quite a while though, apparently.

    We still have to do the next part of the release that involved a tribe of Werebears.
