Combat overhaul is a literal "Game Changer"

Login on any device and play the new & improved Warrior, Rogue, Mage, and Guardian classes. They now feature unique play styles with new skills, animated FX, and ULTIMATES!

New in AdventureQuest 3D version 1.6.0 code name "Pew Pew"

This release has only one goal-- to make AdventureQuest 3D's combat more fun! Which means we made fighting faster, more exciting, and updated each class with a distinct play style. We hope you love it-- every class feels more fun to play. This is a vital update, setting the foundation for us to create the next wave of classes. Login and see for yourself, or read on for the juicy details.

Gameplay Changes

  • Health and Mana potions now have a cooldown of 10 seconds before they can be used again.
  • Monster runspeed in combat has been increased.
  • The player can now move at the same speed in all directions.  Including backwards!
  • Players can now cast all spells while moving.
  • Global Cooldown (GCD) has now been lowered to 1 second.  The GCD is the time required before you may cast another ability.
  • Revive Timer has been updated - the player will now Revive with 50% Health and 0 Resource.  The Revive Timer has been lowered to 3 seconds in outdoor maps only.  The Revive Timer remains the same inside Dungeons (10 seconds).
  • Crowd Control (CC) abilities now have Diminishing Returns.  CC abilities are abilities which include effects that slow movement or stun, etc.  (More CC mechanics will be coming soon!)  After 4 applications of a CC-type spell, the mob will become immune to that effect until combat ends (the mob dies, or resets).  This will be indicated by an <immune> message.  If a CC ability also does damage, the damage will still be applied.
  • Damage over Time (DoT) spells are now affected by Armor.
  • Players can now be Stunned by enemies.
  • The player will no longer auto-run to a target when activating an ability if that ability is unable to be used (for example: not enough resource, or skill is still on cooldown)
  • Auto Attack will now be toggled off when switching targets.

User Interface Improvements

  • A skill icon will now flash when the ability is ready to be cast.
  • Skill tooltips now have additional info!
  • New Buff and Debuff icons; you can also hover over these icons to see their effects now!
  • Each Class now has its own Class icon, which is reflected in the player portrait window!
  • Some Skills have new icons.

Class Improvements

Please keep in mind that much of this is still a work in progress and will likely be tweaked and updated as we move forward!

  • All classes now have an ULTIMATE ABILITY which is unlocked through using abilities and dealing damage.
  • All classes now use their own type of resource.  Resource (previously Mana) bars have been updated to reflect this.
  • All Classes now have  their own Passive Ability / Effect.
