** Armors with the "Fully Offensive" lean deal 25% more damage at cost of taking 25% more damage back, and "0 proc" weapons generally have inherently higher damage to compensate for the lack of special attacks (procs). This is combined to maximize overall damage per turn. This is popular for two reasons: 1. it is much easier to collect equipment with these attributes than those with more defensive abilities, and 2. this type of equipment makes it easy to outdamage monsters. This build is so popular that at one point, the character build guide on the official forums listed nothing but high-end "0 proc" weapons and Fully Offensive-lean armors and listed everything else as an afterthought.

** The most notorious example in ''[=AdventureQuest=]'' as a whole is the Fully Offensive Armor with 0 proc Weapon build. Fully Offensive Armor have a 1.25 multiplier for their normal attack damage at cost of taking 25% more damage, and 0 proc Weapons, with very few exception had an inherently higher damage compared to its proc counterparts. This is combined to get the highest overall damage per turn possible. This is popular for 2 reason, first is the ease of access for equipment of this build with tons of Mastercrafted options for Weapons and Armors on almost every elements. Second is the relative lack of monster damage that makes the build damage oriented approach favorable to its alternatives. This build is so popular, that at one point the character build guide on the forum is filled with the high end 0 procs and fully offensive armors and everything else as an afterthought.
** Pendant of the Galin is a miscellaneous item with a special effect to randomly decrease Elemental Damage you take alongside a sizable boost to Bonus to Hit, a massive boost to Endurance, and a nice Charisma bonus. While its not the best Misc for every situation, it provides a nice mix of offense and durability which turns it into one of the most used misc in the game.

** Gogg, the most well-known example of this game's GlassCannon, as it hits like a truck but dies really quickly. There are many deadlier variant, such as Armegoggon. Then Shadow Gogg came with his random chance to inflict Celebrity (allowing it to act for another turn). Be thankful that Shadow Gogg only hits with Light and Dark, unlike the regular Gogg, which will use Ice-, Water-, and Energy-element attacks.

* SequelDisplacement: Due to the original game being unrefined at best, other ArtixEntertainment games have eclipsed the original ''[=AdventureQuest=]'' in popularity. However, many of the characters prevalent in the other games stem from the original game.

* ComplacentGamingSyndrome: As in-game wars are considered {{Timed Mission}}s, players considered "warmongers" try to rack up the most kills in the least amount of time. This means maximizing damage per turn, minimizing the number of turns taken per battle, preventing pets from taking their turn, running away from monsters with high Endurance, and using equipment with short animations. This led to the build called the [=PoeMage=], where a player uses "nuke" spells (usually requiring CastFromHitPoints or being locked in a defensively-poor armor) while a Poelala pet and guest boosts their damage.
