Rise & Destroy Launched Worldwide!

Hi there!

Today, Kingsisle officially released their amazing new app, Rise & Destroy. I actually had a chance to try this new app today and I'm sure a few of you will think I'm crazy, but it's already my favorite app! Kingsisle released a press release  today about Rise & Destroy and an announcement of more apps that will be released within the next year! Today, I'm going to talk about Rise & Destroy and how awesome it is. :D

Rise & Destroy is about monsters who want to take back their habitat that was previously stolen by humans (you'll see this in the introduction of the game). Monsters are sent out to destroy humans and take back the monsters and what was stolen from them. You'll also get to destroy a lot of buildings, as you can see in the photo above! I'm a human, but being a monster on here is awesome! Everything from the graphics, the storyline, and even the music is amazing. Congratulations, Kingsisle on making such an awesome new app! I can't wait to see the other apps you are planning on releasing within the next year. You're all talented people and I'm not just saying this because I'm a fansite owner. Thank you for creating this game, it looks like I'll be playing your new game and spreading the word to my friends and family members (I already have :D)!  

Overall, I think this is an amazing game and I believe it will have a great future. I didn't get to play as much because I wanted to make this post, but I'm planning on playing more after this post! I'll also have more posts about Rise & Destroy since I've been looking forward to it since Kingsisle announced it. You can download this new app on iOS, Android and Amazon for FREE! You also have the option to buy more energy so you're able to rescue all of the monsters and destroy the humans!  While you're at it, don't forget to follow @Rise&Destroy on Twitter, like Rise & Destroy's Facebook Page and read more about the game on their website

Kingsisle Live:
Rise & Destroy Special!

There will be a special Kingsisle Live: Rise & Destroy edition tomorrow at 4:00 P.M. CST! This is going to be a great Kingsisle Live to find out more about the game and hopefully see #JuliaFromKI play more of the game. I hope you are planning on watching because I know I am! If you would like a link to their Twitch stream, click HERE or on the image above! Now that I'm done with this post.... It's time to play more Rise & Destroy! :D Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral.

I'm Not Losing Hope!

Ahoy Pirates,

The Pirate101 Newsletter was released today, but there wasn't really any talk of anything new. I've noticed that in the past year many players have become worried that Kingsisle is just giving up on Pirate101 and a few people have gave up on Pirate101. I think that this is affecting players that are higher levels since they are getting close to finishing or are finished and want something new. I'm hoping soon they'll release something or tell us something but as a fansite owner, I have no idea what's going on. I do know that I don't want to lose hope because I believe hope is something that everyone should have, no matter what happens. I made a post a few weeks ago Pirate101 and why I believe it's not going to end anytime soon. I still feel that way, maybe a little worried but I still have hope that it will continue.

What I'm hoping for is that Kingsisle is working on an amazing new world(s) and are getting things ready to release it to the Test Realm or at least planning on releasing screenshot teasers like they did for the new world on Wizard101, Polaris. I love making posts about the game, but every time I do, I feel like a lot of people think I'm making it for no reason and I should give up on the game. I don't want to give up on the game at all. I believe it's okay to worry about the game that you love. If you don't love it and you're telling people to stop playing the game and spreading false rumors about it, you are clearly not a fan of the game. I don't think that when I say I want the game to continue, I'm spreading any false rumors about it. I just want everyone to have hope for the game. If we give up on our Pirate101 memberships, that's a sign that Pirate101 is losing money and the world you say you really want will not be released for that much longer. 

I think that we need to stick together and hope that Pirate101 will release details or something soon. I'm still going to make posts and have special events for everyone who still enjoys playing the game. Pirate101 is an amazing game and I'm never giving up or losing hope! I might worry a little about it, but I think that's normal. I think the purpose of this post is to let everyone know that I'm not giving up on the game. I know there are many who might not agree with this post and will say anything to get everyone to stop playing, and I don't believe that's the right thing to do to a game that you claim that you love. I'm sticking with Kingsisle and Pirate101 and this post says that I'll never lose hope. Kingsisle, I've been a fan for six years! You know I'll stick by you no matter what happens. I'll also be here for the community that still plays the game and I promise if I am wrong, we'll have fun until the end. We'll still do the same thing and have fun even if I'm right that the game will release many new worlds and hopefully arcs. Kingsisle, you have a player and many other players in the community that isn't giving up on you. Thank you for an amazing game.

W101 & P101 Pumpkins!

Hi there!

I hope everybody's having a great day today. I've been busy all day with real life, but I always make time for Wizard101 and Pirate101 in my life when I can. I wanted to make this short to share these pumpkins with you. I hope everybody has a great and safe Halloween, today! :D Now it's time for me to make another blog post and then eat some candy corn! :P I'm making this post from the past... Btw, I love candy corn! Okay.. I think it's time for me to end this post. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Wizard101: Halloween Gameplay 2015!

Hello, Wizards!

I hope you're having a great Friday! I know I am. I've had a busy day, but this afternoon was pretty calm and really calm enough for me to make a few Halloween themed blog posts. :D I hope I don't make too many grammar and spelling mistakes on this post since I'm making it so late in the evening. I wanted to get this post out before tomorrow because I'm planning on making another gameplay video tomorrow morning. Yesterday I had a chance to log onto the game and quest a bit through the Halloween quests and record it! I wanted to record my first time questing through the Halloween quests back in 2009, but I didn't have the technology to do so. Yesterday I had a chance to on my 7th Halloween and I thought I'd record it so I could look back on it in the future and say: "Oh! I remember doing that in 2015!" I hope you enjoy my quiet gameplay video. I'm going to try to get a mic soon, but I promise you this won't be an everyday thing. I'm only going to record on special occasions like Halloween quests or new worlds that I want to make a video about. I think it's time to end the typing so you can get to the video. :D Thank you for reading and watching my new video. I'll make a part two and share it on this post or another when I'm able to. :)

Wizard101 Test Realm: New Level 108 Spells

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having a fun time on the test realm this week! Don't forget to report any bug you might find on the Test Realm to Kingsisle by using the bug icon (I've noticed a few in dialog and no sound in the new spells). Speaking of the new spells.. I think they're AMAZING! I've heard a lot of people not like them because of PvP but I know Kingsisle will fix them if they need to. They released the test realm to let players test the new spells out and anything else and report any bug or idea so we they know what to fix or consider fixing.

Kingsisle added a new spell for each main school and I think they're all amazing but I decided to give you my thoughts about them as a non-pvper on this post. :) All wizards who meet the new professors, reach level 108, and complete the story quest "Story of the Sky Anchor" will learn the new spells listed below! :D

  1. Ice School - Snowball Barrage: I've wanted a new Ice AOE spell since snow angel. Snow angel was added to the game back when Celestia was released. I think Snowball Barrage is a perfect spell for questing especially since it does 85 per pip. I think this spell is going to be a useful spell for ice wizards and we'll talk about how useful it was and still is years down the road. :D (This spell can be cast with a shadow pip and any other number of normal pips just like storm's tempest spell) Snowball Barrage LINK
  2. Storm School - Rusalka's Wrath: This spell is probably my favorite spell on the game! I really love the graphics and the power of the spell - 1352 Storm Damage to One Enemy and it may cast +25% damage or -50% damage on yourself for the next spell. I really don't think storm will have any trouble getting damage out if the -50% spell is added because storm is already one of the strongest schools. I think this spell will be perfect for any future boss fights. (You'll need six normal pips and a Shadow Pip to cast this spell). Rusalka's Wrath LINK
  3. Myth School - Witch's Housecall: The new level 108 myth school spell is an amazing spell that has a witch and a cyclops chicken house thing attack one enemy with 992-1132 damage and summons a myth minion to help you. This spell is so random and really is a funny spell. I love that the minion is like a pet egg. This spell is a pretty cool spell! :D (You'll need six normal pips and a Shadow Pip to cast this spell). Witch's Housecall LINK
  4. Fire School - Raging Bull: The new fire school spell, Raging Bull, is an AWESOME spell. I'm going to level my fire wizard first since he finished Khrysalis a few months ago so it'll be nice to earn this spell in 8 levels after the update is added to the live realm. This spell does 514-802 fire damage and applies -40% accuracy reductions to all enemies. This is another useful spell and it looks like I'll be casting this spell a lot so get ready for screenshots when I do! :P (You'll need one Shadow Pip and Six Pips to cast this spell). Raging Bull LINK
  5. Death School - Winged Sorrow: This spell is my second favorite new spell. The Death School will also earn this spell at level 108. I need to start leveling my death wizard again because this looks like an AMAZING spell. This spell attacks one target with 735-1005 Death damage and has a chance to beguile the target attacked. This spell has amazing graphics but I wish the time of the spell lasted longer. (You'll need one Shadow Pip and Six Pips to cast this spell). Winged Sorrow LINK
  6. Balance School - Nested Fury: It's time for a celebration! This new balance spell is an amazing new AOE that does 818-866 ice, fire or storm damage on ALL enemies. I've been waiting for a new spell like this since the beginning of time! :P I am so happy to see Kingsisle decided to give balance a new attack all spell because sandstorm and Ra were kinda getting boring. The best thing about this spell is that once it attacks, it hits all enemies all at once and not one enemy at a time like other hit all spells. (You'll need one Shadow Pip and Six Pips to cast this spell). Nested Fury LINK
  7. Life School - Wings of Fate: Last but certainly not least is the new Life Spell, Wings of Fate. This new spell is an AOE that does 460 damage to all enemies and heals all teammates with 460 health over three rounds for both damage for enemy and heal for teammates. This spell is an amazing spell that many life wizards have waited for since forest lord. It does less damage than forest lord but the healing really makes up for that. (You'll also need one Shadow Pip and Six Pips for this spell) Wings of Fate LINK

I really think these new spells are amazing and Kingsisle did an amazing job on the graphics, animations and how they'll be useful for all wizards who are only happy about them being for questing. The damage the spells do can still change since they're in the Test Realm so if you're from the future and you're reading this post, know that I was typing the amount of damage when it was still in the Test Realm. :P I thought this would be a nice post to make to help anybody that wanted to know my take on the spells. Overall, I LOVE THEM. Thank you Kingsisle for the new amazing spells. :D If you would like to see the new spells, I've added a link to each spell above. I'm going to give credit to Christopher Johnson since I used a screenshot from his video. Thank you all for reading and until next time, I'll see you around the spiral! :)

Enjoy Polaris! Hopefully I'll have more posts like this one soon!
