Potion Gathering

In case you need more potions, there are several options open to you, both as a Guardian, and as an Adventurer. All options give 1 HP Potion, and 1 MP Potion per battle.

Go to the Mage Shop, click "Explore Shop" and combine from the cabinet into the cauldron the following items: Bad Juice, Magma Leaf, Slattwob Dust.

After doing so you will get a Pet Rock.

Then go to Valencia and choose to Visit Her Privately, and choose "Battle Pass".

You are now able to use Travel Map to most locations.


Location: Travel Map -> Crossroads -> Yonder

Since you're generally equipped to deal Fire damage, choosing Ice will probably yield the fastest results.

Triple Challenge (Guardians Only)

Location: Guardian Tower -> Right -> Up -> Click on the Glowing Portal -> Triple Challenge.

Generally faster than Crossroads.

Golden Giftboxes

Golden Giftboxes are the lootboxes of AdventureQuest Classic.

The Golden Giftboxes can be bought from Valencia -> What are Golden Giftboxes?

Each one costs 250 Z-Tokens, but you can buy 10 for the price of 8 (2000 Z-Tokens).

Each Golden Giftbox opens one of three shops:

  • Common Shop
  • Rare Shop
  • UltraRare Shop

From which, you'll be able to buy one item.

Additionally, exiting the shop will not consume your Golden Giftbox, and you'll be able to revisit the shop later via the "What's inside?" option.

You can view how many Giftboxes of each type you have by going to the Account Management panel.

On the same panel, you can exchange lower rarity boxes for higher rarity ones at the following exchange rate:

25 Common -> 1 Rare.

10 Rare -> 1 UltraRare.

Guardian characters get 1 free Golden Giftbox per month, and characters on a Guardian account get 1 free Golden Giftbox per month if they have the Museum built on their house estate, for a maximum of 2 Golden Giftboxes per character.

Lucretia's Apothecary


Lucretia offers you access to potions, which are basically temporary items that provide various boosts in battle. You may buy potions for either Z-Tokens or Gold, though the latter option is only available if you have permanently unlocked the potions by crafting them in the following order: Regenerative Spritzer » Poison Neutraliser » Heart of the Ramleon » Dead-Eye Straight » Shining Aura » Ambush.

When you start a potion crafting quest, you must finish it first before taking on another. You only need to find the ingredients once, after which you can directly purchase the potion for Gold. You lose your progress if you log out halfway through the quest.

You may only use one potion at a time. Buying a new potion will override the effects of the previous one and they last until you log out.


Location: Travel Map » Granemor » Click on Lucretia's Potion Shop


If you have not rescued Lucretia, no one is in the apothecary. Otherwise, you can refill your starting potions and talk to her.

There are five pieces required to assemble the Blade of Awe, each of which can be found in Rare Treasure Chest encounters. These encounters can only happen with the random battle in Battleon or at "Somewhere" at the Crossroads. As a result, the most efficient way of finding these pieces is to farm "Somewhere" at the Crossroads.

Guardians have free access to the Crossroads anytime via the Travel Map. Adventurers though have to get travel passes from Valencia.Please note that, whilst all players can obtain the pieces of the Blade of Awe, only Guardians can actually make use of the weapon. As such, this location isn't particularly useful for Adventurers.

Travel Quests

Crossroads has a total of 6 Travel Quests, which are a series of 12 themed battles differentiated by their backgrounds, with a final Boss and Treasure Chest encounter at the end. In addition, the "Somewhere" sign will take you to a random Travel Quest and provides a chance of encountering a Rare Treasure Chest at the end.

You receive a full heal every 2 battles. Additionally, you also have a chance of encountering a Potion Treasure Chest, which will count as a battle and give you a choice of 3 Health Potions or 3 Mana Potions.

Travel Quest Theme
Smoke Mountains Fire
Skraeling Desert Fire/Earth/Light
Northlands Ice
Kristal Reef Water
Dwarfhold Mountains Wind/Light
Greenguard Forest Earth
Somewhere Random Travel Quest

Rare Treasure Chest

When you first complete a Travel Quest, you will notice a colored star next to the sign for that locality. This indicates to you the number of times you have completed the Travel Quest.

Times Completed Star Rare Treasure Chest Chance
1 Green 9%
2 Blue 12%
3 Yellow 15%
4 Red 18%
5 Black circle with Green star 21%
6 Black circle with Blue star 24%
7 Black circle with Yellow star 27%
8 Black circle with Red star 30%
9+ Black circle with White star 33%

Your chances of encountering a Rare Treasure Chest at the end of "Somewhere" will depend on how many times you have completed the Travel Quest "Somewhere" sends you to ((3 x [times completed] + 6)%).

Blade of Awe Strategy

The most efficient way of farming Somewhere is to decide on a Travel Quest which you can most easily complete and flee the encounter if Somewhere does not send you to your Travel Quest of choice. Much of this will depend heavily on your build and the equipment you have available to you.

The Void

Anyone having trouble viewing the rotation can use this link in the meantime:


The Void is accessed either through Granemor (click on the moon) or the Guardian Tower portal.

Void Takeover

The Void Takeover is an event where a strong monster has "taken over" The Void. If you beat the Void Takeover boss, you open a shop specific to that boss. Before May 2020, Void bosses would become rare (unavailable) after some time. However, in May 2020, the game introduced a new Void boss rotation system. This means that all Void Takeover bosses will become available again. Each boss is active for one week before rotating to the next.

This is the rotation order:
