Ending Soon!

30 Days of Player Suggestions, Big Bad Barbarian Ultra Rares, and Talk Like A Pirate Day loot.

Happy Monday everyone! Get your Anti-Pink Goggles ready, grab a snack, and fill your caffeine-vessel with your favorite drink, ‘cuz there’s a bunch of stuff we are going to cover today =D

The first thing on the agenda: 30 Days of Player Suggestions. I can’t believe it’s almost been a full month! We have had sooo many awesome suggestions and it’s been even more awesome implementing these ideas in game. We have so many super talented artists out there!

Today’s player suggestion is the Dark Energy Ripper, inspired by our fellow player Paradoxies.

Dark Energy Ripper

The Dark Energy Ripper can be obtained at both the HeroSpire and SkullDeep Kiosks for 28 DTs. Even though this blade looks like something only the evilest of Villains would use… I couldn’t help but make it available to Heroes as well since I am a Hero and I reaaaallly liked the look of this weapon! So YES, the Dark Energy Ripper can be used by both Heroes and Villains! How super!  

After today, that leaves us with only 4 more suggestions. But don’t be sad if your idea hasn’t made it in game yet—every once in awhile, we will release more player suggested items, so keep your brain a’storming ‘cuz you never know if (or when!) you will see your own ideas in game.

Market Street Merch

Next thing you should be aware of is all the Rare Items leaving Market Street on Thursday!

Big Bad Barbarians

The Ultra Rare Big Bad Barbarian gear at the Mega Movie Plex will be setting sail soon—and will NEVER be offered again. So for all those Rare Item hunters out there, now is your last chance to score this barbaric bounty!  

And while you’re on Market Street, make sure to pay that old sea dog Capn’ Skampy a visit! He’s right outside Captain Mack’s Head Shop and is loaded with a treasure chest of Talk Like A Pirate Day booty.

TLAPD booty

All of these items are Seasonal Rares, so no one knows if they will be back again next year or not. We cannot see into the future—nor are we on speaking terms with the Clock Blocker—so we do not know if these items will return during the 2012 TLAPD season.

But it’s better to be safe than sorry seasonal rare-less. So get your TLAPD items while you still got a chance! Yaaaaaaaarrrrrr!

Speaking of the Future…

October is nearly here! And that means that the spookiest time of the year is quickly approaching.

But there’s a slight problem. Okay—a BIG problem. You see, in AdventureQuest Worlds, they have “Mogloween.” Because they have Moglins. And that makes sense. But we don’t have Moglins in HeroSmash. Sooooo…..????? You see the problem!

Should we call it Octoween? Howl-o-tober? Super-Spooky-Candy-Eating-Pumpkin-Carving-Day? Howl*Con? Fright Night? Harvest Festival? Or what?

We just don’t know! And that’s why we need your help!

Feel free to post your thoughts on what we should call HeroSmash’s first spook-tastical holiday event on my Twitter or on Yergen’s.

Let the tricks and treats and great ideas commence!

Mondays are Super!

Let’s start the week off right with new Player Suggested items and a sneak-peek of my favorite upcoming event: Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Over the weekend, Yergen snuck online and released 3 new player suggested items!

wonderp and attack gloves
Me and Caffeinator loafing around. Bad guys are TOAST!  

Now, I know what you’re thinking—that derpy bread helm could ONLY be the work of Beleen. But it wasn’t! Seriously! Your fellow player Wonderp Bread inspired the transforming Wonderped Bread Helm that pairs up perfectly with the Wonderped Bread Armor. The Attack Gloves that I’m sporting is the fine work of Gead, and all of these items are obtainable in the Hero Spire and Skull Deep Kiosks.

WOAH! Is that a Chaos Lord?!

Naw—it’s just the Supreme Commander Armor!

Artix thinks PINK is chaotic...

Most people have a misconception of Chaos. Some think that Chaos is aligned with Evil, but if AQWorlds has taught us anything, it’s that Chaos is neither Good nor Evil. Chaos is, in fact, a commanding force that can be harnessed by Heroes and Villains alike. And today, you too can equip this wicked armor at the DTU Kiosks for 30 DTs.

Spoilers arrrrrr here!

One of my most favorite holidays is making landfall next Monday, September 19th. Some land lubbers think it’s kind of silly, but for all my fellow swashbucklers out there, this holiday is a treasure chest just waiting to be plundered. It’s Talk Like A Pirate Day, matey!

yo ho yo a pirates armor for me

Here’s a sneak-peak of some booty you can salvage during HeroSmash’s first ever Talk Like A Pirate Day. You gotta give mad props to Zheenx for making this armor set—and he actually based the design off my real-life pirate costume that I own! That artist be a genius, that he be!   

But as far as TLAPD spoilers go, that’s all I know. For now. But as soon as I find out more, I will be sure to post them here on the Design Notes or on my Twitter!

Smash On me hearties!

Market Street Theater is Live - It's Pirate Time!

Hey there Power People!

Visit Market Street by clicking on the map, or go thru you HALdroid. Once there you can visit the Movie Mega Plex.

Get your movie themed items there. The Mega Plex is currently featuring a Pirate themed shop! The themed shop will only be open for one week only. After that all the items will disappear for good. That's right... All items in the Movie Shop are PERMA-RARE!


Jemini and Thyton really made some amazing armors for this release. Randor the Red rocked out a huge stockpile of pirate themed weapons. Even Polistar got in on this release. Yours truly even made a set of animated head morphs! 

Yea yea – Pirates, blah blah – What else is new?

We made some graphical changes to the engine to help game play, and stories a bit easier to understand.

Aquatian Ruin got an update and a corrected cut scene. Visit Malandra in Overlook and you can see her see the new cut scene for yourself.

Spear has moved to his new location – Professor Smash’s Power Academy in Liberty Square. That’s the place you want to go for all your super power needs.
