Transparency Matters!

Hello Wizards,

Today I wanted to talk about a crowns feature that was added to the game. The Knight-Night Crowns Reward Weekend (which lasts 3 days) gives you rewards based on how many crowns you spend in the Crowns Shop. This would be a great idea, however, the prices are very high.

If you view the image above, you'll notice that you can get a Night Dragon Mount (from the list of exclusive rewards) for $700! While you'll also get everything in the lower tiers, it is very expensive! On top of that, you would have to spend $700 within 3 days to get the mount. The Holiday season is upon us and it's nearly impossible for most (if not all) people to throw $700 to a game. 

So the point of this post is to ask Kingsisle to be more transparent in their actions. Why would you need to throw out a Crowns Benefit that requires you to spend $700 to obtain all of the rewards? Did you know that a Mana Elixir costs 100 Crowns? You would have to spend 330 crowns to obtain the Mana Elixir from this new crowns award system. This is an unfair system and I hope Kingsisle fixes it as soon as possible. I also hope they are more transparent in the future. I am not a hater. I love Kingsisle & their games, so this post is more of a constructive criticism type of post. Please listen to your community, Kingsisle. 

Wizard101: Harvest Hannah Arrives

Hello Wizards!

Harvest Hannah is back in the Shopping District to celebrate the start of the Holiday Season! It's crazy that Harvest (Thanksgiving) is just one week away. Time really did fly by this year. I hope you spend a lot of this Holiday Season with your families. Don't forget to stop by the Shopping District to visit Harvest Hannah before she takes her leave. I already have! I got my items for a Turkey Run event that we'll be hosting on Sunday. Thank you, Harvest Hannah. Happy early Thanksgiving to everyone.

Wizard101 Questing: Where We Ended Up (Week 9)

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having a wonderful week. I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week! With the Holidays quickly approaching, our group of friends has zoomed through the recent worlds. We're telling Malistaire (and all future villains) that we mean business. Speaking of that, let's talk about where we ended up on our recent week of questing.

We ended our previous quest week on the quest "Ring The Alarm" where we had to talk to Watson on Scotland Yard Roof. We actually zoomed through the first half of Marleybone within one stream (two hours). This was a lot faster than I thought it would be, especially since I've never quested with a group of more than four people. We quested through Hyde Park, Chelsea Court, Ironworks and ended on the Scotland Yard Roof. 

This week we started our quest on Scotland Yard Roof. From there we made our way through Newgate Prison, Knight's Court, Cat Cat Cat Lab (that one dungeon on Scotland Yard Roof that I can't pronounce), and eventually completed both Counterweights in the Royal Museum! You probably weren't expecting us to zoom through that much of Marleybone's content, but we did! I love questing with this amazing group of friends. Anyway, we ended on the Final Dungeon of Marleybone - Big Ben!

Quest: "The Last Meow" aka Big Ben
Optional Task: Complete ALL Side Quests in Marleybone

Next Questing Stream
Tuesday, November 20th
6:00 pm Central / 7:00 pm Eastern

We hope to see you at this stream! It'll be fun to complete Marleybone with everyone. This may be a shorter stream than usual since it is a few days before Thanksgiving. Speaking of Thanksgiving... I want to thank all of you for your support. Our main goal has been and always will be to bring this amazing community together. Thank you for helping us do that. I love Y'all!

Wizard101 Questing: Where We Ended Up (Week 8)

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having a great weekend. Today I wanted to make a post that is well over a week overdue. Today I'd like to talk about our Wizard101 Group Questing adventures - where we ended up the last time we quest and the next time we'll quest again.

We ended our Week 7 Group Questing on the quest "Temple Dweller". This was the final quest of Krokotopia. We had to defeat Krokopatra in a dungeon of a few bosses and puzzles. This was a simple dungeon because we all ended the world near or just above the level we needed to end it at. Krokotopia was a lot of fun! Shortly after defeating Krokopatra, we made our way to Marleybone!

We meant business in the first part of Marleybone. We made our way through Reagents Square, Hyde Park, Chelsea's Court, and The Ironworks! I wasn't expecting us to make it so far into Marleybone this quickly, but we do have an awesome group of friends that mean business. Friend Chat also helps out a lot when one of us gets behind and needs help catching up. Overall, this week was one of my favorites because of the progress we made! So let's talk about the quest we ended on and when we'll be streaming again. :)

Quest: "Ring The Alarm" - Scotland Yard Roof, Marleybone
Optional Task: Complete Accessible Side Quests

Week 9 Recap Post

Everyone is welcome to join in and help our wizards with their quests. If you have a wizard near an area we're questing, feel free to join us. We'll continue posting this recap posts for those who may want to join in later. Thank you all so much for your support. Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral.
