Edward Lifegem Side Quests!

Hello Wizards!

Edward Lifegem is back! Well, I've technically never left, but today I wanted to make a post about my life wizard. I haven't been questing my life wizard for quite some time now and I thought it was about time that I make a post about him. After all, this blog is based around him. Today I thought I'd give you an update on my life wizard and what I've been doing lately!

As I've mentioned above, my life wizard has been behind on quests for a while (meaning at least a year). I don't like leaving my main wizards behind and after seeing how amazing Empyrea Part 2 looks, I've been inspired to start questing all of my wizards again - starting with Edward Lifegem. Mr. Lifegem has been level 112 for a year now and my goal yesterday was to level him up to 113. I wasn't too far from leveling, but to level, I had to complete some of the side quests that I've been behind on. I decided to travel to Khrsaylis to complete a few of the many side quests that I had to complete.

I am over the level I need to be to live in this world, but that wasn't stopping me from worrying! I was mostly worried I wouldn't be strong enough. Life wizards are great healers, but not so much of an attacker. I'm happy that I was wrong about not being strong enough. I was able to heal and attack. Most of the time, my life wizard would end with full health even after a boss fight. This was surprising to me and really inspires me to side quest more. I wasn't much into side questing until we started the new wizard group questing that we do on Tuesdays. It's nice to see that my life wizard is still able to solo these side quest fights on his own.

I was eventually able to level up to 113! I hope to continue side questing to see if I can level up again. If you look in my wizards quest log, you'll see at least 20 different pages of side quests. Keep in mind that I don't always pick up side quests. It's time to put a dent on these side quests. Anyway, I should get going. I have some Halloween Run stuff to work on. Wish me luck! By the way, I will make another side questing update post if I am able to level up another level. I wouldn't be shocked if I do level up again from side quests. Thank you all so much for reading! Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral. :)

Pirate101 Questing: Where We Ended Up (Week 5)

Ahoy Pirates!

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! This is our Pirate101 Questing Week 4 Recap post. Week 5 was a bit shorter than previous weeks due to technical difficulties, but it was still a lot of fun questing with all of the amazing pirates in our group. Let's talk about where we ended up for week 5 of new pirate questing!

Last week we ended up on the quest "Gunn's Gold" where we had to fight water moles in Waponi Wu (near the Volcano). Shortly after defeating the water moles, we made our way up to the sigil leading into the volcano where we had to find Ratbeard and Gunn's Gold. We first had to fight some beautiful goldfish, then some more water moles, and eventually we had to fight Chumba Wumba (leader of the water moles). Our task for this final fight was to get Chumba Wumba's health low and then destroy his totems. We all eventually made it through this awesome dungeon. :D 

We got Ratbeard as a new companion - for saving him from falling into a volcano. We made our way back to Avery's Court to get a new quest to Puerto Mico. Puerto Mico is one of my favorite areas mostly because it gives the Monquista vibe which is my favorite world in the game. I mean, have you heard the music of Monquista? It's amazing! After Puerto Mico, we were sent to The Gold Mine to complete quests there. We started a few quests there but didn't end up doing too much. We ended up in the Dark Jungle (an area in The Gold Mine). So let's talk about what quest we ended on and the next time we'll be streaming our Pirate101 adventures!

We're Nearing The Halloween Run: Your Checklist

Hello Wizards!

I can't believe how fast October has flown by. We're already on the 16th Day of October. How is time flying by so fast? Either way, it's nice to know that one of my favorite Holidays, Halloween, is quickly approaching. Our 3rd Annual Halloween Run event is also quickly approaching!

Many of you already know that we've been talking about our Halloween Run event since the end of July. We've shockingly spent a lot more time preparing for this event than any other event. Don't get me wrong, it's a lot of fun preparing for the Halloween Run because we get to test out new ideas. I think those who are able to attend the entirety of the event will LOVE this year's activities. Nothing is perfect, but I think the Halloween Run will be a lot more fun than July's Holiday Mashup. Since the event is quickly approaching, let's talk about what you should do before this year's event!

Read The Official Post 
This year's Halloween Run will be full of fun activities (we didn't even go into detail about what we'll be doing - so don't miss out on those activities). This year's event will be different than any other event that we've had. Please read the official post for this year's event by clicking on the link below. It's important that you know what we'll be doing before attending the event. The official post also has an epic raffle! Click on the link below to access this event post and raffle:

Watch The Halloween Run Guide
The Halloween Run Guide is a video that shows you where everyone will be running during the main event (which begins at 3:00 pm Central on Sunday, October 28th after the activities). The Run is not a race. We're simply running around wizard city with an awesome crowd of friends! If you've never been to one of these events, I still think you'll enjoy participating in this event. Remember to watch the guide below before the event begins. 

Watch The Official Stream
Last, but certainly not least, is for you to watch our Official Stream. We'll be streaming the entire event on Twitch. You don't need a Twitch Account to watch our stream. Streaming our events help provide everyone with important information such as when we'll be starting an activity or other surprises. Our Twitch Stream begins at 12:00 pm Central on Sunday, October 28th. We'll be streaming the entirety of the event. If you're late, that's okay. You can still view the Official Stream on Twitch by visiting the link below.

We have so many awesome surprises for the community during this year's Halloween Run. We hope you're able to join us. If you do, remember to keep it family-friendly and do not beg for gifts. Our main goal is to bring the community together for a fun event. This is why this is a free and open event for all of the community! We hope you have fun at our 3rd Annual Halloween Run.

Wizard101: Great Detective Bundle

Kingsisle has officially announced the Great Detective Bundle that can be bought at GameStop for $29!

Level 130 Gear & Weapons have been added to this new epic bundle.

I've tested out a few things in this new bundle - such as the Hot Air Balloon Ride. You can get up to 3 friends in this new Housing Item Ride. It takes you up far enough to take some epic screenshots! Another one of my favorite things about this new bundle is the Gyrocycle Mount. I've already redeemed this mount for my new myth wizard! He's needed a new mount and this mount was perfect for him. This bundle is a bargain for its price. Thank you, Kingsisle, for creating another awesome bundle. :D

Wizard101 Questing: Where We Ended Up (Week 6)

Ahoy Wizards (had to switch it up)!

I hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday. This post is a Group Questing Recap Post! As many of you already know, Autumn & I have a questing stream every Tuesday at 6:00 pm Central with amazing friends in-game! We've already quested through Wizard City and parts of Krokotopia. Let's talk about where we ended up for our sixth week of group questing!

Last week we ended on the quest "Fangdango" that required us to talk to Alharaz, the Balance Instructor in Krokosphinx. Shortly after, we made our way to the Entrance Hall and began quested through the Hall of Champions! Here we had to fight various bosses and mobs. There was a tough collect quest (where we had to collect Ice Shards from Glacial Avengers. This quest took quite some time to complete, but we all eventually completed it. :) 

We started the Grand Arena by fighting Spiders. We didn't get far into this area because we didn't want to get too far ahead for everyone who was unable to join us. I am already looking forward to next week! It's been so much fun questing with this amazing group of friends! We've also had help from higher level wizards - thank you again for your help! Anyway, I'm now going to share the quest we ended on and when you can expect our next questing stream.
