Cyber Monday brings the Cyber Knight!

Cyber Monday is upon us! I was having some trouble really feeling the right look for this SmashCoin item set. I knew I wanted the theme of Cyber Knight, but wasn't sure quite where to go with it. So I called up Thyton on Saturday, and asked him to come up with something really cool for me. Boy did he really hit a home run! This is one cool armor.

On this set, I went with an armor, helm, and I had to do a falcon like pet/cape thingy. They came out pretty sweet. So for all you heroes, this is your chance. Get this Super Mega Ultra Rare item while you can. Cause tommorrow around this time it will be gone for good!

PumpCON on!

Tricks and treats and frightful beasts!

Happy PumpCON everyone! Tonight the is the opening night of the PumpCON festival, taking place right now over at the Fairgrounds. Here you will meet the hosts of PumpCON, Spook and Spiryt, who have handfuls of candy to give you…if you complete their challenging missions!

spook and spiryt

And all that candy you collect from Spook and Spiryt does a lot more than just cause cavities—you can trade the candy in for MUCH sweeter Armors, Helms, Weapons, and Shields in their shops!

But don't expect Spook and Spiryt to hand their candy over willingly. Their missions will test your strength, endurance, and super powers as you face off against the Wickedly Wild Wolfman and go against an onslaught of Pernicious Pumpkins. To the victor goes the spoils—or, in this case, the CANDY!

Will you be crowned the PumpCON PumpKING? ^___^

This ghoulish gang also has a Daily Scavenger Hunt Quest that awards more candy AND Good or Evil Reputation. Heroes ought to help out Spiryt while the big bad villains should assist Spook.

PumpCON Seasonal Rares!

When you've collected enough candy, you can trade your sugary treats into other spooktastical treats!

pumpcon1

Nineteen PumpCON Seasonal Rares await your inventory slots. You can't have an awesome Convention without a BUNCH of merchandise, now can you? Just about every item in this shop requires a handful of different types of candy trade-ins, ranging from Bubble Gum to Licorice to Chocolate Bars to (my favorite) LOLipops!

pumpcon2Not fond of candy, are you? Don't worry—we've got you covered! Spook and Spiryt also have a sugar-free shop that sells FIVE more PumpCON exclusives for SmashCoins. This is where you get your hands on the Wizard Staff, the Bone Deadly sword, the Bare Bones armor, the Jack-o-Boom, and the Skell-o-lantern helm!

Speaking of Jack-o-lanterns…  

Did you see that pumpkin sitting in Overlook? Have you clicked on it yet?

pumpcon viral item

Clicking on the Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter buttons will allow you to post a link on your account, and whoever clicks on that link will given a free RARE gift: the Viral Jack-o-Lantern helm!  

And it gets much sweeter! Not only will you receive the free rapumpcon beleen re, you can ALSO upgrade your Viral Jack-o-Lantern into the Jack-o-Combustion!

Because nothing says "Happy PumpCON!" better than an ignited gourd covering your head!

One more thing…!

A bunch of you have been wondering where the other servers have disappeared to. Well, seeing as to how the GIANT AdventureQuest Worlds event with musical guests They Might Be Giants releases tomorrow night, HeroSmash donated a few of its severs to help AQWorlds out!

Because sharing is SUPER! And we know super =p

Happy PumpCON everyone! Smash on!

Super Death’s Decision Tonight!

The Shadow War has nearly ended. Which side will Super Death choose?

This is it, super folks. The Shadow War is coming to a close tonight. And you know what that means (and if you don’t, I plan on telling yah anyway): Super Death will make his final decision whether or not to align with the Heroes or the Villains.

super death banner

But from the look of things, the Villain War Meter is pwning the Heroes… so one could make an educated guess if they so choose.

Find out tonight during The Trials of Super Death finale!     

Level Cap Increase!

How super is this?! You can now level up to 20!

New Shadow Powers

Helping Super Death through his trials has taken its toll on you. Trust me—it was super hard for me to complete, and I’m a Mod! Thus, you have undoubtedly earned Death’s respect.

And as such, you have earned the right—and the honor—to unleash Shadow Power!

  • Darkness
    Lvls 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 20
    Envelope your enemy in spontaneous darkness lowering his chance to hit while draining his health over time.

  • Shadow Blast
    Lvls 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 20
    Conjure the forces of darkness to blast forth from your eyes and destroy your opponents.

  • Shadow Bomb
    Lvls 14, 17, 20
    Blow up your opponent with an explosion of supreme shadow power.

  • Death Touch
    Lvls 14, 17, 20
    Summon the power of Super Death unleashing tremendous damage on a single opponent but gradually draining your own health for 15 seconds afterwards.

Speak to Astroman to get your new Shadow Powers!

11 Never-before-seen Shadow Weapons

This loot is never before seen ‘cuz it’s new…and ‘cuz all these items are blacked out! (Okay yes, that wasn’t my best pun, I know, I’m still a bit rusty =p But I’ll get there eventually, don’t you worry!)

shadowwarshadowitems

See that HUGE gun up there? That’s Event Horizon. And Event Horizon will be going RARE next week, so if you want to own a piece of Shadow War history, you better get it tonight while you still have a chance! It costs 250 SmashCoins, so if you're running low, now is the perfect time to stock up!

Click here to purchace your SmashCoin bundle!

All these items require a good amount of Shadow Rep, so if you see something you like, you’re going to have to….

Grind for the Gear!

Following Super Death’s decision, new Missions will unlock under Twi's supervision that will allow you to grind Shadow Reputation. There are 3 repeatable quests offering 1500 Rep total, and one exclusive Member-only mission that awards a massive amount of Rep!

Sweet. Those Shadow Powers and Shadow weapons are as good as yours now!

If you are not already up to date on The Trials of Super Death, then you have some serious catching up to do! The only way to obtain everything you see here (and more) is to complete Death’s missions. It’s a lot of hard work, I know, but no one ever said being a super person was easy =D  

Good luck my friends, and SMASH ON!

+Oh and yeah, here's a super thanks to my Twitter friends for reminding me of how Beleen does things around here ^___^

Everyone is Super!

If Evil is never supposed to win…

then why are the Villains winning?!?

Super Death’s war has reached Day 4. Heroes and Villains alike are dukin’ it out on the battlefield against a flurry of shadow beasts from Death’s previous trials. Here’s the score so far:

hero side

Hero side vs the Villain side

evil side

It looks like the Villains are in the lead! But…but….but… I thought evil never prevails?

Or was that only true in AQWorlds? *pulls out hair* I have sooo much to learn about HeroSmash!

I guess there is only one way to find out which side Super Death will choose—and that’s to keep on kicking shadow monster butt! You and your super pals have until Thursday to show Death whether or not he should side with the Heroes or the Villains… so get your double click finger ready and head to the Fortress of Deathitude to settle the score!

What’s with the Ultra Rare Mega Movie stuff?bbarbarian

Any HeroSmash newbies here? Like me? Hehehe! Well, last week was my first official week on the HeroSmash team. And it was my first time seeing how HeroSmash releases play out. Needless to say, I was quite surprised and confused (well, more confused than usual) when I came across the Ultra Rare Big Bad Barbarian loot.

I was all like, “Heeeey Yergen… wats all dis Barbarian stuff, and why are dey Ultra Rares?”

Now here’s where it gets REALLY awesome, as if Ultra Rare items weren’t awesome enough: Yergen explained to me that every time a new blockbuster movie hits the big screen in real life, your creative HeroSmash team whips together a handful of movie-parody collectibles that are only available for a limited time!

lol not that kind of trailer
The trailer for Big Bad Barbarians.

Sadly, I missed out on the Pirate related stuff and the Harriet Popper swag =( But I didn’t know!

And now I do. And I’m all loaded up on Big Bad Barbarian gear! Aaaaand I’m going to make sure that I get my hands on the next batch of Ultra Rares when a new movie hits the big screen!

Prepare the popcorn for total domination! Omnomnom >:D

A Quick Glimpse into the Future

I know what you guys and gals love more than Ultra Rares and movie parodies: sneak peeks!

And do I have a treat for you. Next week is the start of a little something we’re calling

30days of suggestions
30 Days of Player Suggestions!
