Wizard101: Something Needs To Change!

Hi there,

I hope you all are having a great New Years Eve or New Year Day 2017! Today, I was thinking about 2017 and what I'd love to see Kingsisle add to the game. This is more of a post criticizing the way the game has been lately. I love all of the worlds, storylines, pets, spells and everything that has been released. One thing I don't like is that these new updates never help those who solo the game. I think with the release of Mirage, Soloing has ended because of the level of difficulty.



Most of the blog posts that I've made before the past few years have been about soloing the game. I started the game in 2009 and soloed the game from Wizard City through Dragonspyre on my ice wizard. There were a few fights that we needed help on if we didn't have the right treasure cards and sometimes you did die and would have to repeat the quest. These were great days because you could still enjoy the storyline and not have to look up and see if bosses cheated, or fight four bosses with 20,000 health each with those cheats. 

I have never had the best gear in the game because I wanted to enjoy the storyline the most. Darkmoor gear is the best gear to get, but even that is tough with the help from friends. I think I made a post about this dungeon earlier this year. Gear is really difficult to get, so that means you have to find the best gear that you can get. Jewels have been a lifesaver, but there's no way they'll help you through the game.

I'm not trying to tell everyone to stop playing the game because it's difficult, but I want Kingsisle to know that I would love to make my questing posts again and have fun soloing through once again. Below is one important thing that I think Kingsisle should do to help bring players back to the game/continue playing the game. I'm sure Wizard101 has no problem getting players now, but I think once in awhile, it would be nice to solo a wizard. 

  • New Levels Of Difficulty: I think you should add different levels of difficulty with bosses/dungeons. Create an Algorithm that determines how tough the boss and dungeon will be depending on how many players enter a sigil. If one player enters, it would be nice to reduce the level of difficulty. It is not fun soloing a dungeon that has nearly the same amount of difficulty as a four-wizard dungeon. PLEASE think about this. Seriously, no copyright, just a great idea you can consider. This could help wizards get their new gear and have fun soloing the game. Sometimes not everybody has two accounts or their friends on, so they just stay off the game. If their friends quit the game, they'll probably end up quitting too because of the difficulty. But if they love the game and want to continue, they could start soloing the game. 

That's what I hope happens in 2017. I'd love to continue questing my many wizards again with hope that I will make it through. This is why I had 70+ posts in April 2011, because I was able to quest and talk a lot more about the game. Either way, I still love Wizard101. It's fun questing with a great team, but not alone. Thank you for reading. Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral.

Wizard101: Farming Again!

Hello Wizards!

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas. My Christmas was amazing because I got to spend it with family again and celebrate Jesus' Birthday! I'm happy now because I'm on break and I have time to quest and farm on the game again. I feel like it's been forever since that last time I was able to do these two things.



Let's talk about farming today (I promise I have quite a few questing posts to make after today). This morning I woke up to farm Longdreamer Shamans in Zamunda for a special universal resist jewel. This certain jewel gives 17 resistance to every school. Earlier this year I was fighting these same things and got this jewel just from fighting them a few times.. Today I woke up thinking that maybe I'd get lucky. I battled them 22 times and didn't get anything. I think I needed a life wizard to cast leprechaun a few times. ;P I'm still good. I will continue farming these since they're the easiest to fight. I know there are other bosses around the spiral, but it is my goal to at least get three of these before I return to school later next month. I apologize.. I promise from now on, I will not talk about that six letter word until the time comes!




These battles really didn't take me as long as you might be thinking, since the enemies only had 1,980 health each, and I could use raging bull in two rounds. If raging bull didn't show, I'd use fire dragon with a few blades (using Aegis to protect the blades one round from Earthquake). I think I'm going to farm every morning for the rest of my break to get these jewels. If they don't give them to me, I will be forced to use Sun Serpent! Too late! I already did. It's okay, it's good to always keep trying and to never give up. I promise I'll update you all when I do get this jewel. Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral. :D 

Don't mess with a fire wizard!

Joy To The World!

Hi there!

It's Christmas! It's the 25th day of December. I hope all of you had an AMAZING Christmas. This Christmas season has been a lot of fun. I was actually able to post a Christmas song every single day for 25 days. That's a first! This Christmas was a great time for me. I was able to spend today with my family and have a lot of laughs and celebrate the Birth of Jesus by posting songs like the song I'm posting today.

I don't know if I'll continue posting songs through the end of the year, but we'll see. Until then. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR! I will definitely be back making Wizard101 and Pirate101 related posts. :D I'm going to miss Christmas soooo much. It's really a favorite time of year. Well, at least I have next year to look forward to. If it happened 24/7, we wouldn't look forward to it as much as we do.

Here my favorite versions of "Joy To The World" by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and another by Mannheim Steamroller, and another from the Rockefeller Tree Lighting ceremony (skip to 55 seconds on the third video to hear this version).

Angels We Have Heard on High!

Hello,

This is the Final song of the night of Christmas Eve. You can scroll down for the other three songs. I wanted to publish as many different posts tonight so you can listen to each song. I hope you enjoy these songs. I can't wait until next year to post again. I'll see you tomorrow for one final song (maybe, might publish more after Christmas). Here is "Angels We Have Heard on High" by Andrea Bocelli.

Little Drummer Boy

Hello!

Here is my third song of the night, "Little Drummer Boy." I already had a Little Drummer Boy song added a few weeks ago, but I thought I'd include this one since it is Christmas Eve! Merry Christmas, everyone! :D

We Three Kings

Hello again!

It's the 24th of December and I have a few songs that I wanted to share tonight. Here is my second song of the night, "We Three Kings" by Jim Brickman.

O Holy Night

Hello!

Merry Christmas Eve! I hope you're having a great Christmas Eve with your family. I've been busy today but didn't forget that I needed to post the 24th song of December. It's going to be a first that I was able to make it through every day of the 25 days! :D

Remember what the real reason of the season is. I believe that Jesus is the reason for the season. I have a few great songs that I'll be posting tonight. One is "O Holy Night" by Celine Dion.

The First Noel

Hi there!

It's the 23rd of December (or the Night Before The Night Before Christmas)! I hope you're ready for Christmas. I've been ready for this Holiday since December 26th of last year. A few of you might remember me counting down. :P I am going to miss posting these. I'm thinking about posting all the way through December (maybe I can add some New Years type of music too).

Anyways, here is my 23rd favorite song, "The First Noel" by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. :)

December 22, 2016

There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays!

Hi there!

It's the 22nd Day of December. We are getting soooo close to Christmas. I hope you're having a wonderful week. Please remember what is important. Christmas is a special time of year for many people around the world, and many are already traveling to visit their families. Are you traveling? I hope you have a safe drive or plane ride. There's no Place Like Home For The Holidays!

Here is "There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays" by Perry Como.

Christmas Wrapping

Hi there,

It's the 21st of December, and also the official First Day of Winter. I hope all of you are having a great Holiday week. :) My week has been amazing, but also super busy getting Christmas shopping done and other stuff. Still fun and not a stressful type of busy like my finals a few weeks earlier. When I'm not busy in the late evening, I've been catching up on my favorite Christmas movies. I have already planned Friday and Saturday out to watch as many Christmas movies as possible. :D

Here is "Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses.

The Christmas Shoes

Hi there,

It's the 20th Day of December. I miss my Grandparents so much. Christmas hasn't been the same since I lost my Grandma in 2008 and my Grandpa in 2011 (5 years ago today). My family and I miss them every single day and sometimes I wish they were here so I can show them all of the good things that have happened in the past years.

It's okay to miss somebody no matter how many years it has been. As much as I wish they were here with us, I know they're in a better place. I know they know that I love them. I can't wait to see them again. But until that day, I'm going to remind all of my future family members and children how amazing they were.

Now, here is one of my favorite songs "The Christmas Shoes" by Newsong. Always remember to hug your loved ones and let them know that you do love them. Not just as Christmas, but all year around.


Wizard101: Santa Run 2016 Recap!

Hello Wizards!

On Saturday, we had our 2nd Annual Santa Run! I want to thank my amazing friends/co-hosts, Autumn Dreamwalker, David Silverhunter, and Michael Frost. I'd also like to thank Chase DeathHand and Bradley Lionwielder for helping port everyone to the after party. This event was an amazing event, so that means it's time to get ready for an amazing post (and really a long post at that). We had a lot of amazing wizards at the event and I'm very glad to have been able to visit with you all. I want to thank each and every one of you for attending this event! Now let's talk about who recorded and streamed this event.. I'll talk about the recorded videos first from YouTube. Here are a few videos from amazing wizards that attended this event. Please click on their video links and like their videos and leave a nice comment! Thank you, everyone. :)

Now that we're done with videos, let's talk about our favorite community members Skelemystyk and Connorthecameowizard. Both streamed the Santa Run and I want to thank them for doing that. I know it was hard for many to get out to the event, but I'm happy you will at least be able to watch a recap or the entire thing with the twitch streams. Please follow Skele's and Connor's Twitch below by clicking on the links below. :D

Skelemystyk's Twitch

Connorthecameowizard's Twitch


It was very nice having you both stream this event and I hope you had as much fun as I did. :D I hope you two will be able to stream the next largest event during the Spring (The 2nd Annual Easter Bunny Run). You two are great community members, just like the wizards who made the videos above. Thank you all! Now, let's make a walkthrough of how everything went. :D 



Before The Event

Would you believe me if I told you that this party started at 3;00 am? No? This party started at 3;00 am! Yes, I logged on at that time to find a few wizards spinning, and a few not spinning. I started talking to everyone and before you knew it, it was 5:00 am. I told everyone that I was going to go to bed, but I was too excited for the event to stay away. I decided not to leave and talk to everyone for a few hours. We talked about the event and a few times why I have events like this. 

To answer that before we get too far ahead on posting, I have events because of the community. I love the community and I'm not doing this for me at all - otherwise there is no way I would have logged on at 3:00 am to talk to everyone (really didn't know anyone would be there at that time - but these people are amazing - so are you by the way). I want to bring everyone together like old fansites did when I first joined the game. They did that and I was introduced to the community and met many great people. I think it's great to have events like these often so the community can grow together and not apart. No matter what anybody might say, I will still have these and everyone is invited to them. I have had many disagreements in the past with quite a few wizards, but they are invited to all of these events as well, as long as they're nice to everyone. :) 

A few wizards turned into quite a few after a few hours. Everyone started hanging out and talking around 9:00 am, five hours before the event would eventually start. It was nice taking many screenshots, having a Reindeer Sleigh vs Bunny Sleigh line, dance lines and visiting before the event started. There were about 40-50 wizards in Area One, so that made it laggy and a full area. Other areas started popping up after Area One became full, I believe Area Two and Three were also full. Areas Four and Five popped up just before the event started! 



The Santa Run Begins

I can't believe how laggy the commons was before the event, but then again, I have an old laptop that I'm using so maybe I was the only one experiencing lag? Just kidding! I know many of you were experiencing lag just as I was. Lag wasn't the only thing that I experienced during the Santa Run. I also almost experienced a Game Crash once I ran through Ravenwood. I couldn't believe that this computer almost crashed because I've been to large events on this computer before. I was still able to run the route (from the Santa Run 2016 Guide) before making it back to the commons and talking to everyone to let them know that the portbus wizards would be here to pick everyone up soon. We had five areas of Wizards that participated in the Santa Run. :D




The Afterparty

After the Run, we teleported to Autumn Dreamwalker's Christmas decorated dorm which connected to five other amazing decorated Christmas houses. We were all able to walk through teleporters that connected to the dorm where were able to visit each house. It was a lot of fun visiting with so many great people. I wasn't able to visit with everyone, but I hope all of you were able to have as much fun as I did. Is it even possible for a host to have fun at a party? Well, this party was fun for me, so I'm glad I could spend 13 hours with you all. 13! That's a record! 

I hope all of you have an amazing Christmas. Remember what is important on Sunday (or Monday if you live in Australia ;D). Everybody in this community deserves a friend and I hope with each event, you'll make new friends. So far, we're just now getting to know each other, so I think by the Christmas in July event, we'll all be best friends. Right? :D Well, that's my plan. I hope all of you are able to make many friends at these events. 




I really do appreciate all of your support that you've shown. I hope the events in 2017 are just as amazing for you. I'm going to try to add something new to each event next year so it is different than the events that we had this year. Remember that this is not for me, this is for all of you! I am not doing this for anything, if anything, I've spent money... and Trust me, the Easter Bunny Run in the Spring is something to look forward to. I have a special plan for that. Hmm, we'll just have to wait for that. Make sure to check back! Why are you wondering when the Easter Bunny Run will take place? You'll have to wait until the official announcement has been made.... It's almost Christmas... Celebrate Christmas. FINE. Since you've asked me a hundred times, I'll tell you the date. :D

Saturday, March 18th, 2017

That's all I'm telling you until the end of next month. You'll have to wait for the time. Speaking of time, it's time to celebrate Christmas. ;) I hope you all have a great Holiday Season! Hug your loved ones now and tell them how much you love and appreciate them. Spend your time with your family this Holiday season. Until next time, enjoy this amazing edit by Melissa Rose! :D Thank you, Melissa. :)

Mary, Did You Know?

Hi there,

I hope you're having a wonderful Monday. I think this might be the first Monday I've enjoyed in a long time because it's finally Christmas week. Today was an amazing day! I hope all of you are having a great day too. Today I heard this song on the radio and I thought it would be perfect to post on here since I believe the verses in this song shows the reason for the season. :) I really do love Christmas and I love Jesus most of all. Here is "Mary, Did You Know" by Clay Aiken. Merry CHRISTmas! :D

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Hi there,

It's the 18th Day of December, the day after the Santa Run (which was incredible)! I will make that recap post tomorrow or Tuesday, but for now, I wanted to make my Christmas post since I have every single day for 18 days. :D I really do love this song because it plays on a few of my favorite movies. :D One of them being Miracle on 34th Street (1994 version which many say that don't like but I love it). Anyways, here is "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" by Kenny G.

Hi there!

It's the 15th Day of December which means it's time to for me to share another favorite Christmas song. I've been very busy today and could only post this late. I'm glad I didn't forget. I'm trying my best to make it 25 days! :P Here is "Where Are You Christmas?" by Faith Hill.

Greatest Time Of Year!

Hi there,

I just got through studying most of the day (and Saturday, Sunday, and Monday) on finals and I'm almost done! I'm exhausted today, but that doesn't mean I forgot about the Christmas Song. :D I might be tired, but I will always love Christmas music ( listened to most of the day while studying). Anyways, here is a song that is over ten years old now by Aly and AJ. Do any of you remember what year The Santa Claus 3 was released? It was released in November of 2006! I actually went to see it on the release day with my family. This is an amazing movie and Aly & AJ (old Disney Channel Stars - by the way, the old Disney is the Best Disney), sang this song for the promotion of this movie back in the olden days. :P Really, doesn't feel that old to me, but yeah.. I type a lot when I'm tired. Here's the song! :P

December 12, 2016

Away in a Manger

Hi there,

Today is the 10th of December! I usually make these posts in the morning, but I wasn't able to this morning due to studying. I got a lot done (and I'm almost done). I hope you enjoy this as much as I do each Christmas. This song is one of my most favorite Christmas songs because it's about someone that I believe in. Merry CHRISTmas! :)


Live Nativity Scene

I thought I'd add a little bit more to this post. If you're still here, hi again! :P So.. an amazing Church in my town always has a live Nativity Scene each year. It's something that started becoming a tradition about four years ago (since that's when it started). I love it! They have live animals and describe what the true meaning of Christmas is: The Birth of Jesus. 

I've always loved Nativity Scenes but a live one is amazing. Do you have anything like that in your town? Or better yet, do you have a favorite tradition? It's always nice to have one. If you don't, there's always time to find one! You'll find something that you love to do around Christmas! 

Here are a few pictures of the live Nativity Scene that my town has had. I enjoy them! They are pretty amazing (Which will be added to this post later - since I can't find the pictures):  


Santa Run Update: What You Need To Know

Hi there!

As many of you know, I'm planning on hosting a Santa Run event with three amazing co-hosts: Autumn Dreamwalker, David Silverhunter, and Michael Frost. I've decided to make a One Week Until the event update for you all so you know what you should do before the event. Keep reading for all of the important information that you need to know before attending this event next Saturday.


#1: Watch The Santa Run Video

This Santa Run video is important because you need to know where the crowd is going. This video will show you where we start and where we end. Share this video with your friends so they know where we'll run. If you would like to watch the video, click play on the video below.

pssttt... this video will be part of a contest soon.... don't tell anyone ;)


#2: New Contests

There will be Random Gifters at the Santa Run event. There are a few contests going on right now and other contests will be announced early next week. Next week will be full of Santa Run Contests so be sure to check out any contest update by clicking the link below:



#3: Keep This Event Family-Friendly

It's always nice to keep events family-friendly. This means no bullying or bad language. I want everyone to be able to attend this event. It's not good to bully or use bad language anytime, yet alone a Wizard101 Event. Everybody is invited to this event, but PLEASE don't bully or use bad language during this event or you will be sent away/reported.


#4: Arrive Early!

The Santa Run event starts at 2:00 pm CST on Saturday, December 17th in the Commons, Greyrose Realm. It's good to arrive early, especially if you want to be in Area One. This will be a multi-area event, but no matter what Area you're in, we'll start running at 2:00 pm CST.  It'll still be a lot of fun, so please invite your friends! Let's hit a record in amount of wizards at a party! Join us on that day for a lot of fun. :D

#5: Afterparty Information

We will add Portbus Wizards' names to this post and the Santa Run post on December 14th. We'll be sure to teleport all of you on time so you're all able to make it to a house. Autumn Dreamwalker has decorated four houses for the party (I also have a house ready just in case we need five houses). If you're worried you won't be able to make it to a house, don't worry any longer. All of you will make it to a house. Be patient at first, the longest it should take is ten minutes to get everyone there. :) 

If you have any questions about this event, just comment below or ask me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. I hope to see you all next Saturday at this event. I have a feeling this event might be larger than the Halloween Run which is awesome but it also makes me nervous. :P I'm still excited for this event. Let's show Kingsisle that the Wizard101 community is still alive and we're all friends. :)


December 9, 2016

The More You Give!

Hi there!

It's the 9th Day of December! That means it's time for me to share another favorite Christmas song with you all! There's a song that was released last year by Michael Buble that really gets me in the Christmas spirit. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I promise I'm not done with the old-fashioned songs. I want to save a few of those for Christmas week! Anyways, enjoy!!

Wizard101: 12 Days of the Spiral - 2016 - Day One

Hello Wizards!

I've been playing Wizard101 well over 7 years now. And after celebrating many Christmas' with Kingsisle, this year, they've decided to give us a Christmas themed dungeon (that involves Krampus). This is going to be a lot of fun! I have about 30 minutes until I'm supposed to be in class, but I'm definitely going to test this new dungeon out and make a post about it later today. :) Until then, you can check out the First Day of 12 Days of the Spiral by clicking anywhere on the image below! Have fun, Wizards!

Wonderful Christmastime!

Hi there!

It's the 8th Day of December! I'm looking forward to Christmas break. We don't have long until break starts. I can't wait! It's going to be an amazing month. I'm mostly looking forward to Christmas movies and the Santa Run of course. :D I've been listening to Christmas music while studying and posting what I think you'll like here on this website. Here's another amazing song, "Wonderful Christmastime" by Paul McCartney.

What Child Is This

Hello!

Here's my third song of the day. "What Child Is This" by Vince Guaraldi Trio (from a Charlie Brown Christmas). A few of you might know why I posted three Christmas songs on this day. If not, that's okay! I hope you enjoy the music. See you all tomorrow! :D Merry CHRISTmas! :)


One Child

Hi there!

Wait.. I already made a Christmas song. What's going on? Well, I decided to post three songs today (a few of you might know why). Here's another favorite Christmas song of mine from Mariah Carey.. "One Child." Enjoy! And Merry Christmas!

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Hi there!

I can't believe how fast December is flying by. I really need to get my homework done so I can start watching Christmas movies. At least I'm able to make these Christmas posts to get me in the Christmas spirit! I hope all of you are having an amazing week. This time of year is truly my favorite time of year. I'm going to enjoy it as much as I can. I hope you have an amazing CHRISTmas season! Here is "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" by Chris Tomlin.

All I Want For Christmas Is You!

Hiya!

It's the 6th Day of December and that means I am going to share another favorite Christmas Song! Everyone knows Mariah Carey has the best music (especially the 90s), and my favorite song of all from Mariah is "All I Want For Christmas Is You." I'm pretty sure many of you reading will agree with me that this song is also your favorite! Well, I should get back to studying. Click play on the video below if you would like to listen to it. :D

Pirate101: Christmas Returns to the Skyways (2016)!

Ahoy Pirates!

Long time no talk! I apologize for not making as many blog posts lately. I think that will change over Christmas break which begins next week. I'm looking forward to my break and playing more Pirate101. I miss the game and the Pirate101 community! I am going to try to plan more events soon for the game. :) Speaking of events... Christmas has returned to the Skyways!! There are so many things returning that I could list them without this post being longer than it should be. Of course, I love making long blog posts, but considering the time I have, I don't. I have to study soon for finals. So I will link all of you to the amazing things returning to Pirate101 (including 12 Days of the Spiral that will return in a few days). Click anywhere on the attached image below to learn more about this year's Yuletide!




Wizard101: Christmas Returns to the Spiral (2016)!

Hello Wizards!

It's that time of year again! It's time to start saying Merry Christmas to everyone and screaming "SANTA!" in the Mall stores! Well if you scream Santa, you might get a few weird looks! :P Anyways, let's get back on topic... Christmas (and Felix Navidad) is finally back in Wizard101.


Holiday Mystery Fish

Holiday Decorations

12 Days of the Spiral

Holiday Mounts

Winterland and Yuletide Packs

Holiday Pets


All of the items listed above have finally returned to Wizard101 and the Wizard101 Crowns Shop! I love everything listed above, but I'm mostly looking forward to 12 Days of the Spiral.

Last Christmas

Hi there!

It's Monday. I have a lot of studying to do today but I'm going to get through it because of how ready I am for Christmas. Yesterday it snowed more than it was supposed to! It was beautiful! It really got me in the Christmas spirit. This is truly my favorite time of year. Well, I better share another favorite Christmas song with you all so I can start studying. Here is "Last Christmas" by Wham! Gotta love the 80s and Christmas!

December 4, 2016

Step Into Christmas!

Howdy!

Yesterday was a lot of fun since I got my Christmas Tree, but today I have to start studying for finals. I'm still going to keep up the Christmas spirit by listening to Christmas music while studying. I think everything will go well. I'm just ready for my break! Not long away. It'll be here before I know it. :D The last few finals are pretty simple, but I need to finish up programming projects that I haven't worked on. No, this isn't a college related post... okay maybe a little bit! :P Anyways, I can't wait until Christmas Break! Wizard101, Pirate101, Christmas Movies and of course CHRISTMAS MUSIC! Here's another favorite Christmas song of mine. "Step Into Christmas" by Elton John.

I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas!

Hi there,

I hope you're having an amazing Saturday! Today on my way back from getting a Christmas Tree, I heard an old fashioned Christmas song on the radio. I love listening to Christmas music on the radio around this time of year.. I mean who doesn't?! I love Christmas! Here is "I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas" by Bing Crosby!

Wizard101: Turkey Run Recap!

Hello Wizards!

We had a Turkey Run in Wizard101 today. I had a few wizards ask me if I'd ever have an event for Thanksgiving, so today, I decided to host one! It was a lot of fun and I'm glad those who were able to attend could make it today. I can't believe how many attended even though today is one of the busiest traveling days of the year and most of all, Tuesday. :P Anyways, here is a video and a few pictures of the Turkey Run. :)


Thank you, Angel Iceblood, for this amazing Turkey Recap video! Please click like on Angel's video and subscribe. He makes amazing videos! I'm glad Angel could record this event. It's nice having videos like this video out there for remembrance. :D 


Recap: We waited in the Commons for everyone to show up. We started our run about five minutes late so everyone could make it, but we still had fun. We took pictures (that I'll send to our community manager), ran around the commons with our turkey hats/favorite outfits, then our favorite mounts, and even had a dance line! I want to thank Esmee and Autumn Dreamwalker for helping me teleport everyone to the Afterparty.

After the Turkey Run, we teleported to my Sultan's Palace to PvP, play musical instruments, and visit! I'm glad all of you could make it. I know a few of you couldn't make it because of this busy Holiday week, but I'm glad you all could spread the word about this event. I hope to see all of you at the Santa Run on Saturday, December 17th at 2:00 pm CST in the Commons, Greyrose Realm. This will be a much larger event, so it's good to show up early. Thanks again for attending this event. I hope all of you have safe travels and a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Special Shoutout to Melissa Starblossom for this amazing photo!

Hello Wizards!

Kingsisle announced a new Wizard101 Bundle, the Mirage Raider's Bundle, for the soon-to-be-release of Mirage in the Live Realm. This new bundle can be bought at Gamestop in the USA for $39. This new bundle has an awesome new house, mount, level 120 gear, and a monkey pet (looks like I'll have to Aladdin again next Halloween since there is now an awesome Monkey Pet). This new card also has a choice of 5,000 crowns or one-month membership of Wizard101. Christmas is coming! This looks like a perfect Christmas gift especially with the release of Mirage.

Wizard101: Turkey Run (November 22nd)

Hello Wizards!

Did you know that I've never had a Thanksgiving-themed Wizard101 event? Until this year. This morning, I thought about having a little event a few days before Thanksgiving (Tuesday, November 22nd at 1:00 pm CST in the Commons, Greyrose Realm). This won't be nearly as large as the Santa Run next month, but I thought it would be fun for everyone who wasn't traveling could attend the Turkey Run around the commons and maybe some PvP at my Sultan's Palace. Keep reading for more information if you're able to attend:

Turkey Run


When?
Tuesday, November 22nd at
11:00 am PT     12:00 pm MT     1:00 pm CST     2:00 pm EST

Where?
The Commons
Greyrose Realm

What Do I Wear?
Fall Colors or Thanksgiving Items (specifically the Turkey Hat)

Host:
Edward Firegem

I'll have a PortBus wizard teleport everyone to my Sultan's Palace for PvP & Housing Games. This will be a smaller event, so there's no need to worry about attending early.
 This will only be for fun and for those who are able to attend/not traveling. I still hope to see you on December 17th at the Santa Run! This event won't have prizes, but I still hope everyone will have fun. It'll be a little party before our Santa Run. :D Santa Run, Santa Run, Santa Run! :P

Hello Wizards!

Our community manager teased another sneak peek of Mirage in the official Wizard101 Ravenwood Newsletter! There are still a few more teasers to be released, but it is confirmed that the Test Realm will be released this month!

The Holiday Season

Hi there!

Yes, yesterday was Halloween! But it's now November and Halloween is a thing of the past. For me, November marks the start of the Holiday Season! You know I had to change my header and background to somehow match Christmas. This header is an old header made by Cody Sundreamer. This header will stay for the entire month of November and the Christmas header that I usually use during Christmas will be used for the entire month of December (with Christmas songs of course). Not everything is perfect at the moment, but I will update that the entire month. I hope you're ready! By the way, mark your calendars for NEXT MONTH'S Santa Run! This event will take place on Saturday, December 17th at 3:00 pm CST in the Commons, Greyrose Realm. Hope to see ya there!


Santa Run: July 29th
