AdventureQuest Worlds, or AQW for short, is a browser-based MMORPG from Artix Entertainment. AQW is one of the most popular fully featured browser MMORPGs on the market and regularly has thousands of players on at any one time. Adventure Quest Worlds was developed entirely in Adobe Flash and requires no micro-client to play, just head to the website and create a character!
Launched in late 2008, AdventureQuest Worlds has you choose between one of four starting classes: warrior, mage, healer and rogue. You progress through the game by leveling up and adding stats to your character page. You can then make various abilities and better your attack powers, enhancements and classes. The game is filled with special events, raids, quests, loot, items and gear.
You can play AdventureQuest Worlds absolutely free, however a paid account can give you access to additional game content which you would normally not get to partake in. Micro-transactions are also prevalent in the game, and allow you to buy exclusive in-game items, and also real-life merchandise.
