AdventureQuest 3D is a free to play game, but if you would like to help support the game and get cool rewards and gear, you can purchase one of our Guardian packages, DragonCrystals packages or the Starter Package!
The Guardian packages come with multiple rewards and benefits and is a permanent upgrade. The Guardian packages never expire and are a one time fee. Guardians are AQ3D's special heroes akin to the original AdventureQuest Guardians! .
The Guardian package gives you 2500 DragonCrystals, Guardian items (including the class), access to Guardian only quests and the tower, 30 inventory spaces more bank slots and badges.
The Collector's Edition Dragon Guardian package gives you 10000 DragonCrystals, Dragon Guardian items, badges, and everything else that comes with the Guardian package. If you purchase the Guardian package and want the Dragon Guardian package at a later date, you can upgrade your package for $29.99. So you are only spending $49.99 whether you purchase the Dragon Guardian package first or later as an upgrade to your Guardian package.
The Guardian packages are directly credited to your account, so even if you delete your character, your new character will have the Guardian rewards, except for any DragonCrystals that were already spent on your character.
If you aren't sure how to access all of your rewards, please visit this help page.
The DragonCrystals packages give you this special in-game currency to purchase special items/features for your character. DragonCrystals are also a one time fee and DragonCrystals items can be sold for gold in return.
The original Adventurer's Starter Package named Lore Strider was available for a limited time for any Hero who wanted to have a little boost when starting the game! It included 500 DragonCrystals, some great starter items, gold and potions! This package was for specific character. Here is the Design Notes post for more information including that existing Guardians got it for free when it was first released!
There current Starter Package is called Dragon Transformation and comes with a Dragon Travel form, the Lore Strider armor set, XP & class boosts and 1000 DragonCrystals! Here is the Design notes post for more information about this package.
AdventureQuest 3D is NOT pay-to-win so being a Guardian, spending DragonCrystals on items and purchasing the Starter packages will not affect your character's power or level. They are generally used for conveniences such as bank vaults to store your items, time savers like speeding up crafting or using travel forms to travel quicker, or cosmetic items that only change your appearance.
You can purchase these packages via Steam, the Google Play store, the App store or via our website once you login, using PayPal or other payment methods such as a credit card, or with your Artix Account using Artix Points via our Portal Site! You must have your AQ3D account linked to your Artix Account to purchase Artix Points to spend for an AQ3D package.
There are also special promotions each month where any player that purchases an upgrade in that specific month can get the reward(s) that are available for that month. There is also travel form that is available for all new and current Guardians. The reward(s) are added directly in your inventory after your purchase is made and the travel form can be obtained at the Guardian Tower after talking to Fortes.
