I never know how to start Design Notes...
Verlyrus suggested "Saluyolotatings" and Geo "PAY ATTENTION MY ADORING FANS! ART BOMB IN YO FACE"
I suppose I'll go with Yo.
Anyway, I've started sketching ChaosWeaver class designs. I wanted it to give a "traveling attire, suited for fighting, but imitating SoulWeaver formal outfit" vibe. Including unhealthy amounts of belts and buckles, obviously.
At first I planned to just use SW as a base, swap the art and recolor the skill effects, but I came to a conclusion CW could use a new set of animations!
It will be a DC class after all and you deserve something new, not just a simple art swap!
Note that it is in early planning stages so far, so don't go expecting it to be released anytime soon!

Greetings! Tonight we have the crossover quest between AdventureQuest, DragonFable, and MechQuest!
Warlic has summoned you to his tower over a matter of grave importance. Not only will you find out why he has been absent all this time, but you'll also discover more about Doom Weapons, the Shadowscythe, and what they planned (and could still be planning!) for Lore! Use the button in your Book of Lore to start the quest now!
I want to give a big thanks to The Hollow and Wyrm of the Adventure Quest team, Lyris on the MechQuest team, Tomix, Dracelix, and all the DF testers. All of them put in a lot of work either making the monsters, the rewards, one of the cutscenes (you'll be able to tell which Tomix did and which I did :P), and just overall putting up with me freaking out trying to get everything done for this. I wrote all 3 quests for this crossover, with some additions by Falerin for AQ's script and Geo, Verlyrus, and Melissa for the DF script, and everyone else pitched in to help me with art that I needed to build these or just things like the monsters and reward items. This couldn't have been done without them so make sure you thank them either on the forums or on Twitter because they all deserve a big thanks for making sure this worked out!
I put a lot of work into the quests from the story all the way to making sure the cutscenes worked like I wanted them to so I hope you all enjoy playing it.
As a smaller note, DoomKnight is now up for DA testing. Make sure to leave feedback in the proper thread.

Greetings! Doom has finally arrived and it's time to see what you all think of it!
First, the Doomcrawler from the T.A. Side Challenge at the Book 1 Necropolis has had a new section added. This is an all new setup of challenege mode fights that should put any class through its paces. The higher up on the list the more difficult it WILL get, but each "section" has its own rewards. You can tell which is which because they're grouped by two's. There's a total of 4 shops and each shop has something in it for all the different base classes.
If you like the original Crawler, don't worry! I left that one in so you can always attempt battles against it. Now though you have a true test of the revamped classes that will hopefully keep a few of you occupied for a while. I'm working on something else for the Crawler but it's not really ready yet so this will have to do for now.
Next we have the long awaited DoomKnight revamp. You'll find the skills are quite a bit different so please use the class in all sorts of situations and see how it works. You can't just Life Carve everything anymore, but all your skills now have a use and they all do something interesting!
Please keep all feedback and testing discusion in the appropriate thread. It's located here, CLICK ME! Once you've used the class in game some you can see the stats for it in that thread and figure out more combos, but I really want you to base any feedback off what you can do IN GAME. I can't stress that enough.
For a quick breakdown though I'll give you all this. The main focus of the class is the Corruption skill. It will alter how quite a few of your other skills work AND it provides a nice bonus against all types of enemies. This is primarially how you'll deal with bosses, as most normal mobs won't last outside of Spikes and/or Blood Rite, and will cause you to alter your playstyle some based on what it has done to your foe. Ideally most boss fights should start with you seeing what the enemy type is, considering what skills you have, how they'll be affected by corruption, and how you want to fight the boss. If you don't want to plan your battles out, you don't HAVE to, you still can skill spam and will do just fine, but for those that like planning out how your battles need to go to win the fastest or with the least damage taken, or how best to get around a bosses mechanics, this skill set will give you everything you need.
I hope you enjoy it! Verly is almost done with the bug fixes to Ranger so you should see that and its items live soon!

Creatures of Darkness have begun to feel a change happening. Something is crawling its way back to power and another is being reborn and reshaped into something different. When the sun sets on Friday, prepare for DOOM!

The night of Sir Stephan's premiere is here! The mics are primed, the stage is set, and Sir Stephan's awesome new sign is all set up! An ominous riff is reverberating offstage though... Sir Jimmie of Fallcon and Sir Jimmie of Kindle have rolled into town to stop Coldbear from encroaching on their entertainment turf. They even brought along a few side kicks to help with the warm up!

We have a small update for you today in Book 1 Oaklore! Melissa4Bella and Niki heard about an amazing new business that Sir Prize has started and think you should check it out! What could go wrong?
Be careful, though, level 1, 10, and 30 versions of something... unpleasant... might follow you home!
Don't forget to check in with us next Tuesday, September 8th, for the Fight for Late Night!
