The Untold Spiral: Decaversary Event Recap

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having a wonderful day. Today I wanted to talk about an event that I was able to attend over the weekend. Vanessa Mythdust, from The Untold Spiral, had an awesome Scavenger & Tag event. This event was the final part of the Wizard101 Decaversary Fansite Celebrations.

We all started gathering in Golem Court early in the afternoon to wait for Vanessa's event. The wait wasn't long at all! It seemed like as soon as I arrived, Vanessa was ready to teleport everyone to the house. Now, if you know me, you'll know that I love taking screenshots. I took so many screenshots of this event that even if I made 20 blog posts like this one, I would still have screenshots to use. There's really a backstory of why I take so many screenshots at events... before I tell you why let's talk about what happened at the party.

Vanessa quickly teleported everyone to her Battlemage Keep Castle. Here she started housing games up and the winners of each housing game would win 3-5 packs of their choice! We played Wildfire Tag and Zeke's Scavenger Hunt. I think my favorite game was the Wildfire Tag since I wasn't participating to win a prize. I got to turn everyone I could into a fire elf! :D So everytime someone would win a game, everyone would go back and line up near the housing games for the next game announcement. 

This event was a lot of fun. Sadly I had to leave early because I'm still getting over being sick. But I still had a lot of fun at this event. I take many screenshots of community events like these because I was unable to take screenshots during the first few events I attended when I joined the community. I love having these screenshots for the wonderful memories made. Thank you, Vanessa, for this wonderful event. If y'all would like to check out Vanessa's site, feel free to click on the link below.

Edward Strong: First Week Of Side Quests

Ahoy Pirates!

I apologize for the lack of posts over the past few weeks. I was planning on making new blog posts last week, but I ended up catching a sickness going around. I'm slowly, but surely, starting to feel better. Today, I decided to start side questing my new bucanneer, Edward Strong.

Edward Strong is a recently created character for our Thursday Pirate101 questing streams. Autumn and I asked everyone to create a pirate a few weeks ago and we quested together on these new pirates. We leveled up to five for both pirate and nautical level. If you would like to read more about where we ended up a few weeks ago, feel free to click on the link below. We'll be streaming this Thursday (9/28/18) so we hope you're able to join us!

I started side questing my pirate today. While I was unable to complete all of the side quests, I was able to complete a few that leveled me up to level six. I wasn't much of a side quest type of person when I joined Kingsisle's games, but now I am starting to love them. They level you up so you're more powerful on the main quest fights. It's not always nice being defeated during big boss fights. Either way, I don't think I'll be defeated with the help of being a higher level and questing with an amazing group of people. I am looking forward to our next questing stream. Speaking of streams, I should fix a few of my stream settings. Thank you so much for reading. Until next time, I'll see you around the skyways.

First Day of Fall!

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having a wonderful Saturday and First Day Of Fall (Autumn). Summer has finally decided to rest and give Fall a chance to shine. I surprisingly also got to wear my hoodie for the first time in several months because the temperatures have been dropping. I am so happy to finally say that it's my finally my favorite time of year!

Wizard101 and Pirate101 started celebrating this time of year by releasing a new mount, the Autumn Leaf Swarm. This new mount can be bought in the crowns shop in both games for 5,000 Crowns. This mount actually reminded me of many fond memories. The house I grew up in had a large tree that dropped many thousands of leaves during Fall. My sister and I would always build a leaf fort every year. We would always try our best to keep all of the leaves in one spot, but when a gust of wind came through it would take so many leaves with it. We weren't sad about these gusts of because it was fun to see all of the leaves "swarm" around. Anyway, let's talk a bit about some treats!

I've been sick over the past week but that hasn't stopped me from preparing for the Halloween Run. I announced that I would be having a Crowns Raffle on my Official Halloween Run Post that will be published on Friday, September 28th. This is exactly one month before our event takes place so that gives you plenty of time to watch the guide, enter contests, etc. I'm not going to give too many hints about what this year's event will be like, but I will say it'll be amazing. I think the community will love what we have planned. I am very much looking forward to this event and the epic raffle. Mark your calendars. The Halloween Run will take place on Sunday, October 28th.

By the way, you may have noticed that I've also updated my website to match the Fall/Halloween theme! My goal for next week is to try to update the pages on this website. I started working on them a few months ago but that was more of a test. I'd like to update them completely. I think the page I am most looking forward to updating is the Online Safety Page. That page has been up for 8 1/2 years and hasn't had too much of a change. I think that'll be one of the first pages I'll update. The rest of the pages will be updated as well. Let's hope I can get this done by Friday! Anyway, I should get going because I'm going to attend Legends of the Spiral's Decaversary Maze Event. It'll be a-maze-ing! Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral.

Edward Gem Crafting Adventures: Wizard City

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having a wonderful week. I was sick over the past few days which prevented me from making blog posts that I've wanted to make, but I am proud to announce that I am finally feeling better! This means I can talk about something that I gave up doing for at least 7 years... crafting!

I loved crafting when I first joined the game and crafted up until Zafaria was added to the game in 2011. After Zafaria, I gave up my original crafting adventures because I wanted my main focus to be on the storyline, that is until the creation of my new myth wizard, Edward Gem. Mr. Gem and the amazing people that quest with Autumn & I every Tuesday inspired me to start crafting again. We only quest once a week, so we have plenty of time to do side quests (such as crafting) on our wizards when we're not questing. So let's talk about the first crafting quest from Wizard City.

You can collect the first crafting quest from Eudora Tangletree in Olde Town. The first part of the quest requires you to find Mist Wood (which can be found in Olde Town). After you turn the first quest in, you'll get another quest that requires you to craft 2 Daggers of Absolution. You can look for reagents or buy them from vendors. Below you'll see what I did to create the two daggers.

Four Sapphire
Costs 60 Gold from Elmer Meadowglass (Olde Town)
Eight Black Coal
Costs 40 Gold from Elmer Meadowglass (Olde Town)
Four Mistwood
Found mine is Olde Town, can be found in most areas in Wizard City
Four Cattail
The Commons, Cyclops Lane, and Unicorn Way (anywhere in water)

Crafting in Wizard City was very easy to do! I found everything I needed in a short amount of time. I think the only advice I have to offer you if you do plan on crafting is to collect any reagents you see (especially during the member benefit time). This Novice Crafter will prepare in advance for my next crafting quest in Krokotopia. I plan on collecting as many reagents as I can as I continue questing and side questing. Let's hope the next quest is this easy. Thank you all for reading! Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral.
