Wizard101 Events For The Community

Hello Wizards.

I think it was a good idea to make this post before I make the recap post about the Bunny Run that occurred yesterday. Yesterday was such a great day, and I'm glad all of you were able to attend the Bunny Run. It really does take a lot of work to put events like this together so they run smoothly, but, I still enjoy hosting these events. I want to talk a little bit about the purpose of these events, and what it takes to get them to run.

It Takes Time




It takes a lot of time to get events like this together. Here's a full list of everything that we, the hosts, have done, to prepare for each event, not just the Bunny Run, all of them. Even with real life in the way even more this event, we made sure we were able to do the following:

  • Figure out a perfect day to have the event (since I'm a college student).
  • Get houses ready by decorating. 
  • Make sure all of the amazing cohosts (Autumn, Frostcaller, and Michael) are still able to attend these events.
  • Make video guides, and make sure everyone looks at that guide.
  • Try to find help for port wizards to teleport everyone to the afterparty.
  • Make Blog Posts about the event.
  • Have code giveaways - and announce the winners (which does take time).
  • Announce the event on every social media platform, sometimes everyday. 
  • Make sure everyone knows where to meetup on the day.
  • Get everyone to the party, and try not to leave anyone behind.
  • Have more giveaways on the game.
  • Make sure everyone knows what's happening by telling everyone at the events at all houses.


And much more. It really takes a lot of time to get events like this ready. We had many show up, so it made it a little tougher than usual, but I still hope everyone had fun.

Sometimes It Costs Money

True story. It does sometimes cost money to have events like this. I am not doing this to pay people to come to our events (otherwise I would have announced the $10 code giveaways all over - and I only announced it a few places). 

I gave away $10 Wizard101 gift card codes, and still have more to giveaway within the next week, but I did pay out of my pocket as a thank you, not as a bribe. I really don't mind giving back to the community. Cohosts have also spent money out of their pocket for events like this.

Also for this contest, Autumn bought crowns to giveaway mounts and other things. That was nice of her to do that! We wanted to thank the community for all of their support for our events. We love having them, and we do care about the community. It is our choice to have giveaways, and nobody can say we can't just because. Our events = we give away what we want. ;) 



Who's Invited To These Events?

Last, but certainly, not least, I want to answer the important question in red. EVERYONE. If you feel like you're not invited to these events, you're wrong. Everyone is invited to these events. The purpose of these events will not be ruined and made into something disgusting. The purpose IS and ALWAYS WILL BE the community.

We have these events for everyone in the community. I will not exclude anybody, as long as they're nice to everyone at these events. Everyone last night was very nice, and it seems like everyone had fun. This was my goal for the events. It's really tough putting an event like this together, and unless you have, you won't and never will tell me how these events should go. This event was first announced last December on my website. I was looking forward to this event for a long time. I know we're usually busy and aren't able to talk with everyone, but I still enjoy having these for everyone.

As I've said many times in this post, it was tough having these events. It takes a lot of time to prepare for them, and most of all the busiest day is the event day itself. I'll be honest, I was online for 12 hours because I love talking with everyone in the community. Events like this make me believe the community will stick together through thick and thin. I've had events where I don't give away codes and it has the same atmosphere. A welcoming atmosphere. That's exactly why I'm proud to have events like this. We are extremely proud to have these events for every person in the Wizard101 community.

I know not everyone has supported me, even though I've shown support many times in the past, but I really don't care about support anymore. I do care that all of you had fun at this event, was able to make new friends, and talk with old friends that haven't been online in awhile. That's the reason I have events like this. It was nice seeing ALL of you at this event, and I do invite you to all future events. I invite everyone reading this post. I support everyone in this community and I do invite everyone to these events. The time and money we spend into these events, I have every right to invite who I want, and that is everyone. Thank you all for reading and I hope you enjoy my recap post later this afternoon.

What Was Wizard101 Like Back In The Olden Days? (Selena Gomez)

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having a great First Day of Spring! It's very nice outside where I live.. not a cloud in the sky! I decided to, make a blog post about the Old Wizard101 days before I go outside and enjoy the weather. So, a few of you might have an important question in mind about the game in the past. What was Wizard101 like when Selena Gomez visited our favorite game?




To answer that question, let's travel back to a time when Dragonspyre was the highest level world you could complete on the game! At the time, we were waiting for Celestia to be released. Many of us were looking left and right for any sign of a new world update. We knew Celestia would be released soon, and then, in September of 2010, Selena Gomez arrived! Well, technically she was kidnapped by the King of Crab Alley. ;)


We, the wizards had to rescue Selena Gomez! We had to do everything in our power to save her from the King of Crab Alley. First, we had to collect a quest from our favorite and only storm teacher in Ravenwood, Halston Balestrom. We had to find a way to learn how to swim for the very first time. Swimming wasn't a thing on the game yet, so we had to get a water-breathing potion to breathe underneath water. After getting this important potion from Darla (the Dye Shop), we'd find our way to Crab Alley!

Eventually we'd find Selena, surrounded by crabs (which was an easy fight since they lower-tiered). But the King of Crab Alley took her again. We had to fight the King and knock some sense into him. He realized what he did wrong, and Selena Gomez invited him on her "Year Without Rain" tour on planet Earth! And yes, we got to dance with Selena Gomez and the King while she sang "Round and Round" on Wizard101! It was so much fun! I had a few screenshots on an old computer, but I wasn't able to keep my harddrive to share them with you. I decided to make the post seem a little old fashioned by including screenshots of my wizard in Dragonspyre-themed gear and the level 48 ice pet, Colossus. At the end, after saving Selena Gomez, we got a Statue and a Portrait of Selena Gomez. These are extremely rare items that only wizards who completed the quest have.


There are many great Wizard101 - Selena Gomez quest videos out there on the internet that you can watch to view this awesome quest. I'm sure many of you will even miss updates that are released today, so always cherish those moments every chance you get! I love Wizard101, and thank them for so many great memories, even today. I'm so glad I was able to participate in this special quest. I knew this post wasn't going to be too long of a post, so I decided to finish this post with a special song.. Not Selena Gomez. Even better! Here's "A Day Without 101" by The Friendly Necromancer / Tom Purdue! 

Pirate101: Questing Our Musketeers Again!

Ahoy Pirates!

You're not going to believe this, but I have a post that has nothing to do with Edward Cringle or an event! Yesterday, I was able to quest my musketeer, Edward Hawkins, with Autumn's musketeer, Autumn Walker. We haven't quest on these pirates in at least two years! It was a lot of fun questing with Autumn again on Pirate101, and plus.. I got a lot of awesome screenshots. You know me and my screenshots!



Yesterday we started sinking Tso Warships. I have to tell you, it's way easier sinking ships together than doing it alone.  I always try to get the very best screenshots of the spells being cast at enemy ships when ship battling. I took this screenshot, but I decided to crop out the attack numbers, so it would look perfect! By the way, that storm shark attack is pretty awesome. :D



After awhile we attended a wedding! We stole a wedding invitation, forged it, and ruined a wedding! :D Lol, if you're a wizard, you need to know that we pirates don't play around. We mean business! If you want to do the same, you should play Pirate101 with us. :D It's fun - and there are so many adventures on the game. This dungeon was a lot of fun, and thankfully, it didn't take as much time as we expected! You wouldn't believe this, but during this dungeon, I didn't take any screenshots until we were at the very end. At least we had fun. :D 



Last on my post, but not least, we went through the Bandit Cave! I'm not going to talk much about this dungeon, but I will give Autumn a chance to talk about the rest of our adventures yesterday. I should get going now. I have classes to attend this morning, and homework to complete! I hope all of you have an amazing Monday/Week! Thank you for reading my Pirate101 post. Please check out Autumn's website, Secrets of the Spiral, for the rest of our adventures. Click the image below to view her website. :D
