Artix (NPC) - AQW
At this morning's launcher update meeting, Artix, Miko, and I talked . and such are going on AqWorlds and other games shouldn't just be. I am so glad you are here to help us celebrate Artix Entertainment's 11th anniversary, and AQWorlds' 5th birthday! I cannot wait show you everything we have set. AdventureQuest Worlds is an expanded universe of Artix "In AQWorlds you can train up your fishing AND cooking at the same time!.
Also in her story for the July Friday the 13th Event, she was freaking out cause the inn was out of Moglinberry Smoothies. The Healer class since they heal and use weapons to fight. Quetzal's Comet from the Frostval event. The threat isn't the comet itself, but the beast that lives in it.
Jorxlol, for those who have read the Forgotten Realms series is a complete and utter expy of Jarlaxle, the infamous rainbow-cape wearing rogue drow and leader of Breagan D'arthe.
He is depicted as bald and wearing an eyepatch in-game, but sadly without his epic rainbow cape or feathered hat. In the May Friday the 13th event, it starts with a couple of miners finding a ship in the desert. The ship is the very similar to the one from the first Friday the 13th Event in as Voltaire lampshades it by saying he just can't get away from Pirate ships.
In a cutscene for Yulgar's Inn, Twig is shown falling down the stairs. This is a nod back to the original AdventureQuestwhere Twig also did so in the background.
Moglins turning into Moglinsters as a result of the Cauldron Sister's sabotaged candy, though the culprit behind it is Dr. Voltabolt rather than Zorbak. Reens still making you gather the same alchemy ingredients.
Game Launcher Update #5
The Water Breather potions being spilled into the ocean allowing everyone to breathe underwater. Sally's hometown being Moonridge and how she finds the Necropolis after Vayle's army invaded her hometown with archive DragonFable footage being shown.

Drakath's betrayal of Sepulchure and eventual death in the Book 1 finale.

Galanoth's home being destroyed by Akriloth. Bubble the cat having a relationship with Verlyrus. Although unlike other examples, the AQW Hero did partake in this one, with the quest chain being a retelling of how Akriloth and Drakonnan spread fire throughout the lands. In addition, the plot of the one destined to destroy the world aligning with Good, and the one destined to save it being on the side of Evil.
Artix (NPC) - AQW
Captain Stratos' ship, the Phereless, which also once belonged to his father. Galanoth killing "the Dragon of Time. Wolfwing, the fifth Chaos Lord, gets turned to dust by an arrow fired by Shadowslayer Z, but sometime later the moon comes over him and begins slowly restoring his remains.
Tibicenas, the eighth Chaos Lord, achieves this by exploding into many shards of Chaos after being defeated. In-game, both Discordia, the fake sixth Chaos Lord, and Ledgermayne, the seventh Chaos Lord, also explode for their death animations when defeated. After defeat, the Void Dragon also explodes in the cutscene afterwards - this one into many Void Splinters. Some players are this.
Cruel and Unusual Death: And a rather funny one at that. It is said that anyone who enters Grimskull's dungeons and tries to get to the end often ends up facing a comical and embarrassing death that Grimskull gets to laugh at on his "Big Scream TV", after which he adds those numbers to his Scorror Board. Saahir, the supposedly mighty Djinn who the Hero and Zhoom had enlisted to help them against Tibicenas, doesn't even last five seconds against him.
Later, Sepulchure delivers an awesome one to Chaos Vordred to the shock and disbelief of Sally. Except that is not Sepulchure as Gravelyn stated but rather a clone of him. Drakath does a LOT of curbstomping during the course of the final battle before the Hero comes Back from the Dead to clean house. He one-shots Stalagbite and even Vordred! D to K Daddy's Little Villain: Gravelyn is Sepulchure's kid. She even wishes to avenge her father when he is destroyed. Doomwood is starting to become this.
We have a powerful undead badass by the name of Vordred, known as the Paladin Slayer, that has killed every High Paladin but one — Artix. Then we have the hero becoming an undead slave to Vordred — who is also immune to undead slaying magic. Oh and we have someone who wants Artix dead for her own personal reasons.
Can it get worse? She's not only revived Noxus, but also is the reason that Vordred is invulnerable to paladin magic. Oh and Artix is the only one that's blocking him from being invincible AND Artix isn't just a paladin Vordred is trying to become the Champion of Darkness, and the only thing he needs to do is kill Artix — because Artix is the Champion of Darkness, but swore himself to the cause of Good long ago.
Out of the Chaos Lord storylines, the Bloodtusk Ravine storyline is the darkest. We have Xing and Mirror Xang manipulating the Alliance leaders and the leaders of both Horc and Troll factions all so they can stall for time and prepare the 9th Chaos Lord. The Etherstorm Storyline, where we see a priest of the Air Realm have his entire body crushed beneath Desoloth's foot.
Desoloth also bites off Galanoth's arm, and the ending of the saga is much more dark and mature than any of those before it. And if you thought Doomwood was bad, Doomwood Part 2 is even darker! Sally recreated Vordred and fused him Chaos Magic, then Gravelyn wished for her father to be revived, and then Selphulcure has created a Zombie Apocalypse which involves killing Death and all but the main character, Twilly, Gravelyn and Artix are the only ones standing between him and the destruction of the world.
The Frostval event is even darker than previous Frostval events because it features a powerful and despicable villain utterly lacking in a sympathetic backstory. Kezeroth the World Ender proves to be almost unstoppable and doesn't know when to lay down and die, even after his defeat, and he plans to use the Beast Quetzal to freeze all of Lore and therefore live up to his name.
It definitely doesn't help either that he's especially brutal, seeing how he beats Elim to death to show that he means business.
And did we mention Athon's Heroic Sacrifice at the end of the event? It gets even worse in the Thunderforge storyline. To start things off, Maximilian Lionfang, the leader of the Golden Onslaught, becomes a Chaos Lord and starts slaughtering massive amounts of Darkblood. Due to this despicable act, this means that there will never be a cure for Chaorruption again, which is not good, because it eventually becomes a setup for a series of tragic events in Swordhaven.
The Swordhaven arc seems to be among the darkest ones yet. To summarize, Alteon has finally succumbed to chaorruption. He became the 12th Lord of Chaos, and in his madness he killed his eldest daughter.
In the end he was slain as well. And it appears that by the end of the war, what's left of Alteon's kingdom will crumble due to infighting among the power-hungry and those seeking revenge.
And the 13th Lord of Chaos saga is probably the darkest of them all, with THE HERO being turned to Chaos and running roughshod all over Lore, getting killed by Drakath in a colossal dick move, and the Alliance facing disaster as Drakath's forces rise to destroy everything. The "Stolen Screams" event released by Cysero seems to be darker than several early major chapters of the "Ancient Evils" storyline, as it takes place in a bleak ghost town overrun by ghosts and spidersand the event's main villain is a man-bat working for the Queen of Monsters named Chamat.
It also features the tragic death of an innocent girl in a flashback, and when she later becomes a banshee, she kills Chamat by wailing at him, which melts his face right off. He is honest, friendly and pure-hearted. As a child, Artix was the only survivor as his home town and foster family fell to a Necromancer's undead army. Taken in by the wise and kind Lady Celestiahe was trained by the Order of Paladins - this was very much against their will, as Artix was unable to use Light-based magic without the use of Spirit orbs which is a prerequisite for casting light based, healing and defensive magic.
Celestia alone knew why, and it was a secret she kept from both Artix and the order. Artix became a champion of good whose story themes include never giving up, always choosing to do "what is right" over the easy path, and judging people by who they are, instead of what they are.
Artix's axe, the Blinding Light of Destiny, is able to free the Spirits orbs of the undead, which allow him to used light based magic. Artix appears as first in a cutscene, slaying undead. In the older versions of the AQWorlds tutorial Artix can also be found at the end of the map shooting the Hero up a dragon to save Princess Tara.
He tells you there how to use your class. Swordhaven invasion His next apparition in AQW takes place during the invasion of Swordhaven by the undead forces commanded by Sepulchure.
