What Do I Think Of Wizard101?

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having an awesome Monday. I know.. Mondays shouldn't be placed in the awesome category, but you never know. Somebody might actually be having an awesome Monday. Monday, Monday Monday Monday. Monday! :P That's kinda annoying.. :P



Today I wanted to talk about how much I love Wizard101. I've been playing the game nearly seven years now. I mean a lot has happened in Wizard101 within these seven years amazing years. I was speaking to a few friends on Twitter yesterday about how much has changed since we all joined Wizard101. I joined Wizard101 in July of 2009 and the game did not have the following list of features:

Wizard101 Crowns Shop / Icon
Game Card Packs
Mounts
Advanced Pets, Pet Pavilion, Mega Snacks
Critical/Block
Shadow Magic/ Shadow Pips
School Themed Houses/ Mounts/ Teleportation Symbols
Jewels
Castle Tours
Daily Assignments
Fishing
Dungeon Recall
Hairstyles
World Themed Housing Items
Selena Gomez, Skeletal Bosses, The Doctor
Briskbreeze Tower, Waterworks, Aquila Dungeons, Darkmoor
Gardening
Stitching
More NPC Expressions (brought more to life)
New Teachers/ Arcanum
Etc.

These "few" features are probably something that you have used today. I'll tell you that Wizard101 didn't have as much as it does now when I joined. I was still on the game more than I should have been. :P It makes me wonder how anybody gets bored of the game today seeing all of these new features added to the game since I joined. I'm sure I've missed a few. Wizards that joined before me didn't even have the bazaar or Dragonspyre! How did time fly by this fast? I have no idea. I'm looking forward to see what Kingsisle has planned for us. Not everything I've mentioned above is something that I think is perfect (of course a few things needs to be fixed), but I'm sure glad Kingsisle is always trying their best for us. Thank you Kingsisle for just about seven years (next Monday)! :D So what do I think of Wizard101? I think it's amazing to see how far the game has come! I'm looking forward to the future. I wonder if I'll make another post like this in a few years? Hmm.. we shall see! Thank you all for reading this random post. Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral. :D

Icy's Graduation Party Recap!

Hello Wizards!

I was planning on making a recap post about Icy's Graduation yesterday, but I was tired most of the day. I thought I'd make this post today since I'm not as tired as I was yesterday. :) Before I talk about what the event was like, CONGRATULATIONS Icy on your amazing accomplishment! Graduating Middle School, High School, College (like Icy), or really any school is always amazing and shows that no matter what you went through, you still made it through. Even if you decide to go back to school, that shows you can do anything if you put your mind to it!



Icy's Graduation party had many amazing people from around the community, decorations, contests and even a special Livestream on Spiral Radio featuring many puns! :P I'm glad I was able to attend this amazing event for Icy and I'm glad so many wizards did too. I was able to make many screenshots of this event for memory and this blog post. If you've read my website long enough, you'll know that I always love taking screenshots especially of events like this. I probably have about 30 screenshots from this event. :D I LOVE taking screenshots! :P



I think that the Graduation Party was a great way to celebrate not only Icy's accomplishment but also many other graduates from around the community that also graduated this year! Icy and Stephen Spiritcaller threw a great party/Livestream and I'm glad I was able to attend. :) Thank you for a great event. This event really reminded me of the first few events I attended when I first joined the community (Fallon Moongem's Birthday Party for example - Happy Belated Birthday, Fallon). Well, that's it for this post. Only three screenshots of the event?! I guess I'll have to post a few on Instagram. Thank you all for reading. Until next time, I'll see you around the Spiral. :)

Oooh, cake...!

Kingsisle Live Recap!

Hi there!

Today our awesome community manager, Tom Purdue, and new awesome co-host W101 & P101 Producer, Leah Ruben, had another Kingsisle Live yesterday! I wanted to let both of them know that they did a great job on this episode of Kingsisle Live.



This episode was very funny and was one thing that made my day. :) I'm glad the show was able to continue because it gets the community together on the game for fun and laughter. This episode was actually full of a lot of information including a new boss planned to be released to Wizard101 soon, talks of two updates that are also planned to be released, new Pirate101 updates including drops, a new Wizard101 bundle, a new Mobile Game, and potential future bundle from my understanding! We also had a lot of fun in the game and they had an amazing guest! 

KANE!!!



This episode was a success and I am looking forward to future episodes! I will miss Leala & #JuliaFromKi, and I really want to thank them for all of their hard work and support of the community. I'm glad we are able to have another great chapter with Leah Ruben. :) Both of you did a great job yesterday. By the way, if you would like to view yesterday's amazing episode of Kingsisle Live, you can click play on the video below when it is made available later today!

Icy's Graduation Party (Tomorrow)!

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having a nice Thursday! Today has been a great day for me, but I'm still looking forward to tomorrow. It will be a great day for getting the community together because of two things, Kingsisle Live AND Icy's Graduation party that will take place later after Kingsisle Live! I wanted to make a post about that today to let everyone know about Spiral Radio 101's amazing co-host, Christina Icedreamer's (Icy), graduation party. :D

When?
TOMORROW at 7:00 P.M.CST

Where?
Meeting in Nightside in the Vampire Realm


Keep in mind that this is not my event and that I'm only spreading the word about it! By the way... SpiralRadio101's amazing co-hosts Stephen Spiritcaller and Christina will also stream the event. :D This kinda reminds me of the old Wizard101 days! It will be a lot of fun to attend and of course, congratulate Icy on her amazing accomplishment. :D If you would more information about contests and where the after party will be, just click on the image below. I hope to see you at the event!

Decorating my Christmas House

Hello Wizards!

I haven't really been up to too much lately because every minute I've been in Wizard101, I've been decorating my ice wizard's Polarian house for my July 16th Santa run event! The afterparty will take place in this house and I have many special events and hopefully contests planned for it. :) I didn't want to take too many pictures because I want part of it to be somewhat of a surprise. I'm sure a few of you will guess what I have planned, but I am working on a limited amount of Christmas items from the Yuletide Packs that they usually release during the Holiday season.




I've been logging into all of my characters to find extra Christmas items to add to my house. As I said earlier, I am working with a limited amount but I still think what I have planned will get you in the Christmas mood on July 16th. It will be a lot of fun for a lot of you in the community and I hope many of you show up. I want to see so many Santa & Mrs. Claus's (or red and white gear) running through the commons on July 16th with us. :) I think this will be a great way to the get the community together. It's not Christmas yet, but it will still be a lot of fun to celebrate Christmas in July before the main holiday gets here. That means I'll have to improve everything for the Holiday season this year since I'm having a Santa Run this Summer. AH!! I can't wait! I've been looking forward to this event since I announced it earlier this month. :D I can't wait to meet up with all of you again. Keep looking for more information: potential cohosts? Contests? Activites? All of this will be announced the first week of July! I should really get back to decorating. Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral! By the way... if you would like more information about the Santa Run, click anywhere on the image below!!

Kingsisle Live: Friday, June 24th!

Hello Wizards!

Great news! Our amazing community manager, Tom Purdue, is hosting a new Kingsisle Live this Friday, June 24th at 4:00 P.M. CST. We haven't had one since April, so this will be a lot of fun. Let's show Tom and Kingsisle how much we support them and overall their games! I hope we can make a new record amount of viewers this time. If you would like a link to Kingsisle Live Twitch stream, just click anywhere on the image below! Try to view it live if you're able to. :D

Spread The Word About Pirate101!

Ahoy Pirates!

Blind Mew posted his thoughts about VL2 and the ending of ARC 1 on the Pirate101 Message Boards today (you can read that by clicking this hyperlink - HERE). He called out for all of us to tell more people about the game we love and they would also do the same thing! We have to let everyone know how amazing Pirate101 is so they could save it. If we are able to get a lot more Pirate101 players to play the game and hopefully buy crowns and memberships for the game, we'll be able to have more worlds. Quitting the game in protest of Kingsisle not releasing enough content will not help Pirate101, the same with Wizard101. We have to show them how much we love both games while spreading the word about these amazing games! Spread the word to your friends about the game we love! I know Kingsisle hasn't said that Pirate101 would be closing down, but I still think it's nice to use the hashtag #SavePirate101 and #PlayPirate101. :) If you haven't played Pirate101 yet, you can start by creating a character by clicking anywhere on the image below!!


Farming Continued: Tartarus

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having a great day today! I have been wanting to make this post for a long time now, but I've put it off for about two weeks. I finally decided to make this post today! Let me first thank you for supporting my website. I have never been paid to make these posts and I love making them just for the community. I like offering my advice and thoughts about bosses/dungeons in Wizard101. I'm glad you have stuck around to read my random blog posts. :)



Many of you know that I don't have the best gear in the game! :P I actually have a few pieces of level 58 gear on a few wizards that are above level 100! My sister & Autumn also wanted new gear so we decided to start farming different bosses from around the spiral for new gear. Farming for new pieces of gear is still not over because we still need many pieces of new gear. 



I think that after many weeks of farming for gear from these different dungeons, we'll finally have a lot better gear than we do now. Farming a lower level dungeon first for that dungeon's valuable gear is the best thing to do before you enter a higher level dungeon such as Darkmoor which is a level 100 dungeon compared to the Tartarus level 90 dungeon. I think it's a great idea to start lower before you farm the higher level dungeons so it's easier to get through that dungeon without the worry about being defeated. You may or may not know that, but I don't mind giving my advice to those who may be questioning which dungeon to farm first for gear for their wizard. :) By the way having a team is also amazing! :P



This dungeon was actually pretty easy to get through since we had a great team! I actually remember soloing this dungeon at level 90 on my ice wizard and I couldn't make it past the Cerberus fight no matter what I tried. I think I tried it before Shadow Magic was even released, so there was no way I could get rid of those shields on my own so I just tried hitting over and over. A team is a great thing to have, but so is the guides from the amazing websites that provide them. Seriously. Where would we be without their help? :) Special shoutout to them! Use the guides if you have any trouble. I'm sure many of you already do, but if you're new to the game, these guides will help you be better prepared for a cheating boss fight. :) This dungeon was a lot of fun to quest through and we got a few pieces of gear from it too. We'll always try again for new gear! Well, I should end this post now. Thank you all for reading and for your incredible support. Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral!

Our amazing team, and you gotta admit.. the life spell is pretty cool & very useful! :D

A Note To Readers

Hi there,

I wanted to make another post about what happened over the week on Twitter. This will be a lighter side of how I'm feeling about all of this. I don't want to play victim over all of this, but I can't say that this didn't hurt me and make me feel bad about who I am as a person. I know I'm a good person and I want to support everyone for being who they are no matter who they are as long as they're not using hate against someone because I don't support hate at all.

I went to an amazing Wizard101 event yesterday and had a chance to meet all of the wonderful Instagram wizards. They're amazing, trust me! Calamity SkullFlame, Cody Star, and Iridian Willowglen were behind this amazing event. You could tell all of the wizards there were very nice and welcoming, at least that's what I got from it. I was worried to interact with everyone. I'm usually not quiet during events, but I'm already worried about saying anything on the game without having so many run up to me and have the same thing happen again.

I'm not worried about somebody disagreeing with me about the situation that happened a few days ago, but I am worried that this will continue with endless bullying because I have different opinions about things. I had put myself in a parental position a few days ago because I felt that something was not right and I stood up against that. Doing so actually led to me being called probably more names than I've ever been called in my life (I don't remember this many at all), being made fun of because of my Religion, who I, only one person, supports in Politics which doesn't matter at all, my website and many other things that I will not mention on this post.

This might be hard to let go of because of how sad I am that this happened. I'm not saying that I've been here longer so you have to respect me, but I remember welcoming quite a few of that group to the community on Twitter when they made their first tweet. I am not a bully at all for worrying about somebody's choice. My opinion could be wrong but that does not give you a right to send 40 people to bully somebody because of their opinions. I have just as much a right as you do to say that maybe I was wrong - even though I don't feel I was. Bullying somebody and saying it's not bullying, it's just? What is it exactly? I would like to know what you think it was that so many people had to make somebody feel bad like that.

The only thing that would make me feel worse than I do now is that somebody else is bullied by so many people that feel it's okay to make somebody feel bad. I don't want to see anybody in the #twizard or offline in real life being bullied by one person yet alone nearly 40. I'm sure there are more that have shown support of this bullying and I don't like thinking of this. It makes me not even want to talk or interact with anyone because I'm worried you're just hiding until you're ready to kick me down while I'm already down on the ground.

There are however many good things that have come out of this. I know there are many amazing people in the community (and in real life) that do not support bullying. I'm glad there are people in the world like this because that's the way to make the world a better place - standing up against bullying of anybody no matter who they are. I do not support any kind of hatred against anyone and just because a few say that doesn't make it so.

I love God and I know he loves everyone, I support a politic that many might not support but that doesn't mean I don't support all religions/people. I wouldn't bully my worst enemy because I believe showing hate with hate will just make the fire burn even more. I made this post not to hate, but to let those who have bullied me or are planning on bullying me because everyone else is doing it and getting a lot of retweets, likes, and praise doesn't mean you're a bad person. It means that you need to stop and put yourself in my shoes and how I feel or somebody else feels that you have bullied. I hope you're not bullied by nobody here or outside in real life. I don't believe anybody should be bullied on anything no matter how unique they are. I'm not saying I'm unique, I'm only saying I'm me and I'm happy to be who I am.

Acceptance is a major part of peace and how Love will truly win. Accepting that everyone has different opinions and choices. My opinions and choices are different from yours, just like yours are different from another reader and so on. I love Vanilla Cookie Dough cream! You might like Mint Chocolate Chip.  You wouldn't show any hate for that because if everyone was the same and loved the same ice cream, Birthday parties would never be the same! Just like the world would never be the same if everyone had to agree with you, or you had to agree with me no matter what and you had to like it because you wouldn't have a right to different opinions. Please accept that everyone is different and there is no reason to bully anyone because of different opinions and choices. It's okay if you don't agree with me, but it is not okay to bully me or anybody else no matter how many people it is. This is a way to spread hate and I will not accept that especially if it's somebody else in the community.

I hope I can move on after all of this and get back to my normal posts, tweets, and normal activites. The only thing I will apologize about is involving those who had been involved in this. The last thing I want is for you or anyone else to be bullied just as I have. I accept that I have been bullied but I am also going to accept that it's time to move on after this post of getting my true feelings out about this entire situation. If you truly know who I am, you'll know that  I'm not a bully or any of the other names that others have called me. I'm human and I know who I am as a person. I'm a good person that supports everyone as long as they're not using anything for hate. Now. That's all I have to say. I just wanted everyone to know this was much more than drama to me. It really made me feel bad about myself and I've never felt this way before but I've also had so many amazing people out there remind me not to listen to those who are trying to make me feel worse. I'm going to listen to you now after this post. I really wanted to get this post out so you know how I felt about all of this. I'm ready for a new fresh start of new posts, talking to all of you because I love interacting with you. I don't want somebody who apparently hates me to take that part of me away from all of you. I also want to make blog posts and have events that get the community together without the worry about somebody showing up and bullying me or one of you. The way to do that is to continue doing what I did and not letting them win. I will not back down and I will continue doing what I have done since I joined this community and that is continue supporting all of you for who you are and trying to make the community a better place for everyone no matter their opinions, choices or beliefs. I would also like to thank you all for your amazing support. You're all great people and I'll never forget the support you have shown me in the past few days. I said a few days ago that it was time to get back to normal tweets but I really wasn't ready. I feel so much better now just by getting how I feel about all of this out to all of you. I'm still sad, but most of all thankful that there are so many great people in this world to stand up against bullying. Give yourselves a pat on the back for not only being great community members but showing the strength that you have to stand up against it. I don't care if you believe what I believe or not, I'm just glad that no matter what, you have been able to look past that and stand up for what you believe in too. As long as it's good and not bad. Thank you all again.

June 20, 2016

Thank You

Hi there!

I usually don't make posts like this on my website but I wanted to tell all of you something that has been on my mind lately. I'm very thankful for all of your support over the past Six years! I really don't know what I'd be doing if I wasn't blogging about the games we love, Wizard101 & Pirate101, for this amazing community. I don't even know where I'd be in real life if I didn't join these two amazing games and the communities.

Many of you know that I decided to become a Computer Programmer/ Software Developer so I started attending College in 2014 to earn my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science - which most likely explains the lack of posts in the past two years. :P I already know what I'm going to do in my future because of that. The community has helped me with communication. I'm actually a shy person, but a few years ago I was very shy and awkward (all of the time - seriously my weird funny blog jokes didn't work). I'm so glad I was able to talk to everyone here because of that reason.

Now... Where am I going in the future? I want to hit 2,000 posts! I'd love to have more events for the Wizard101 & Pirate101 community too. :D My future is already looking bright mostly because I still feel like I'm supposed to be here for a reason. I joined Wizard when I was 15 years old. I'm 22 (23 next month) now and I still love Wizard101, Pirate101, and this community! These were just a few random thoughts I was having this morning. Thank you all so much for all of your support! I really do appreciate all of you. :)

The Shadow Fortress: So Many Ninja Pigs!

Ahoy Pirates!

I hope you're having a nice weekend! Today I had a chance to quest my Swashbuckler again. I don't like taking long breaks, but it seems that I will be questing a lot the next month as I'm planning on making more Pirate101 posts than I have as of late.



On my last blog post, I had to fight the Monkey King after I returned his staff to him so he could get out of the cage he was locked in. The fight wasn't that difficult but I was still able to make it through. :) Shortly after defeating him, I found a letter from Shunzang The Wize and in that letter he said he wanted me to return to Subata Temple. Once I returned, Shunzang told me that the only way Monkey King would cooperate would be to get The Crown of Command (which commands him to cooperate). Shunzang told me that I would have to fight my way through the Shadow Fortress to put the Crown of Command into Monkey King's helmet and then return that gear to the monkey king.



I actually remembered what the Shadow Fortress was going to be like because I remember questing through this dungeon not long ago on my Witchdoctor. I knew I would have a lot of Ninja Pigs to fight! I think I had to fight about 20 Ninja Pigs (including one last main boss). There really isn't much to say about this dungeon, only that you should have your main companions, yum, and Doubloons if you need help. I soloed this dungeon and it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. :D Minions from the Crowns Shop also are very helpful since you're able to pick the attacks for them. There are a few fights that you can avoid in this dungeon (shortly after defeating the six Ninja Pigs that are required for one quest in this dungeon). You can avoid those fights by just running around them and that's where you'll meet the boss, Kirigi. This part of the dungeon requires you to only defeat him so you can get all of your attacks ready and attack him as soon as you're ready. Now.. I bet the next few fights will be very difficult because I remember saying many times in the past that I was ready for more dungeons like this. I'll be ready. Nobody can defeat The Cringle!



Shortly after obtaining Monkey King's gear, I had to sail back to Subata Temple to tell Shunzang the good news. Monkey King also arrived to take back his gear and we almost used the Crown of Command on him until he agreed to help us. He told us that he didn't have the Turtle Ball and that somebody else actually had it. Monkey King also said he would help guide me to the Vortex where this boss is located. That's where I decided to stop because I knew I would have a lot to type on this post. :P I love making posts like this, but sometimes it is very hard to remember what happened in the game. I like making posts like this for the storyline and any difficulty I had when questing this character. I hope these posts are also helpful for you. :) Well, it looks like I should take my leave before this post gets too lengthy. By the way, Happy Father's Day to all of the Fathers out there and I hope you have a great day. :) Until next time, I'll see you around the skyways.

OH, and I leveled up to 48 and got Monkey King as a Companion! #WOOT






Daily Blogging?!

Hi there!

Yesterday I planning on making a post as a start of Daily Blogging for an entire week. Emy Anemsalok actually came up with the awesome idea for bloggers to blog for an entire week and it looks like I'll make posts for an entire month - I was planning on doing something like this before anyway - since I'm a day late. I'd like to give a shoutout to Emy for this wonderful idea of daily blogging for a week (http://anemsalok.org/?p=896). :D Keep in mind that this is not my first daily blogging post. I'm going to try to make a post every single day through the 19th of July whether it's Pirate101 or Wizard101 related. I hope you stick around to see what I have planned for this month. This next month is going to be a lot of fun! By the way, if you would like to see the daily bloggers on Twitter, you can search up the hashtag: #OneWeekDailyBlogging for all of their wonderful posts. :)

Farming Rasputin!

Hello Wizards!

It's Thursday! You're not far from Summer Break or the weekend if you're still in school. I've actually been on Summer Break for over a month now and my past two weeks have been spent questing and farming in Wizard101. I've had level 58 gear for awhile, but recently I've been able to farm Rasputin (last boss in Polaris) with Autumn Dreamwalker. :D




Let me first start off by saying that Polaris was an amazing world. My fire and Autumn's life and balance wizards were able to make it to level cap (110) and fight Rasputin. I'm not going to pretend that everything went well the first time around. :P We went through the dungeon before this last dungeon and not one of the bosses cheated! We were pretty happy about that, but I would have loved to know which bosses cheated or didn't cheat before we join battle (Please add that feature, Kingsisle). Once we got to Rasputin, we knew the fight would be tough but not so tough that the minions would cast a Bolt that would do a lot of damage and eventually defeat us. :P We read the guide wrong the first time around! I guess I can say that everyone makes mistakes, and that's okay as long as we learn from our mistakes. :)



We did learn from our mistakes and decided to make up a plan because we didn't want to give up. Our plan involved Autumn using sandstorm on the minions the first round after we would blade and trap my fire wizard (since Rasputin would summon these minions and every round they would transform until they spammed bolt on us and themselves). The blades and traps placed on Rasputin would eventually help defeat him once and for all. Well.. I guess I shouldn't say once and for all because we went through again to get more awesome gear. We were able to collect our Level 110 Deck, Amulet, Boots, and Wands! I guess the purpose of this post is to never give up. You might not get it right the first time, but that doesn't mean you never will if you don't keep trying! Thank you all for reading. Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral. :D











VL2: The King & Queen (Level 65-66)

Ahoy Pirates!

I'm happy Book 15 was finally released to Pirate101's Live Realm. We've been waiting for a long time to quest again and learn more about the Armada. Today I decided to quest again to see where I could get without losing too many of my pirate's companions.



Before I talk about what I did today, let me first start out by saying that I do love Valencia Part 2. I'm happy Kingsisle was finally able to release an update and I hope all of you log into the live realm with a membership/crowns to test it out too. I promise I'm not getting paid to say any of this or any support I have given Kingsisle in the past. I love Pirate101 AND Wizard101 and I've been a huge fan of their games. I want all of the fun to continue just like you do if you're reading this post. :D 



I mentioned in the beginning of the post that I was able to quest again on the game. I have missed Pirate101 these past few weeks. I need to start playing a lot more! Today I was able to quest one level (from 65 to 66). It seems Kingsisle fixed all of the bugs we encountered while questing on the test realm. This time,  I decided to quest a little slower  than I did in the test realm and listen to every part of the story so I know what to blog about when I bring Edward Cringle through this part of the game. :D I love Kingsisle's Valencia Part 2 storyline even though it seems like it was rushed to the game (since they were still working on the Kane battle - animation - can't think of the word :P). I still think they did a great job fixing everything. The Royal Guards were a little tough, but I was able to make it through. The Battle Angels were tough, but I was still able to make it through that second fight. So far I think that the difficulty might be right for the update after Aquila. I'll let you know what I think about the next level in another post soon! Until then, I'll see you around the skyways. :D

Storm & Fire Earn Their Level 108 Spells!

Hello Wizards!

I can't imagine the amount of time I've been on Wizard101 the past few weeks. I've been very busy catching up on things that I haven't had a chance to catch up on in many months. One of those things that I wanted to catch up on was earning my level 108 spells for my fire and storm wizard. :D

My sister & I actually leveled our ice and storm a lot after defeating Morganthe. I can't tell you how nice it is to finally be out of Khrsyalis. I'm not saying I don't love Khrsyalis, I'm only saying that it feels like we've been there since the beginning of time! :P I actually earned my storm spell when my computer was overheating. It would shut off at random times since it was reaching very hot temperatures and that was not fun at all. When we earned our spells in the beautiful Arcanum, that made up for everything!



I also earned my 108 Fire Spell in the same week! Autumn & I started questing and we zoomed through about 5 levels in one day! I love Rusalka's Wrath, but the fire spell is already a favorite of mine (especially when farming). I can't believe how strong the fire school is getting. I can't wait to see all of the Arcanum spells the fire school gets. Speaking of spells, our new trainers are awesome. My favorite trainer has to the new fire teacher,  Ignus Ferric. I should end this random post before it gets too random. I wanted to make this post before I tell you what I've been up to this week! Thank you all for reading and for all of your support. :D July 16th. Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral. :D



Pirate101: VL2 Released to Live Realm!

Ahoy Pirates!

Get ready to start questing! Kingsisle released Valencia Part 2 to the live realm this morning. We now have a level cap of 70, new companion updates, Contessa (our new awesome companion), new talents, and overall an amazing storyline. There are many more updates you can read about by reading the June 2016 Update Notes! I hope all of you have fun questing. By the way, if you find a tough battle we also have new level 70 minions in the crowns shop to help us progress. Happy Questing! :D

My Thoughts on Polaris

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having an awesome week so far! It's been very hot where I live so I've been spending most of my time in a colder climate known as Polaris. :D I've been questing in Polaris most of the past two weeks and I LOVE this world. I know most of you have already been through this world, but this month was really the first time I had a chance to quest through the world. I decided to make a new Wizard101 post about what I like and dislike about Polaris in one!



The Graphics in this world are amazing! I have always loved the Space Theme in Marleybone and when Polaris was released I knew I'd love this world because of the stars. The Northern Lights have always been something that I always wanted to see in real life, so you know the ones on the game were something that I wanted to see! Kingsisle did a great job with this. Speaking of this, I had family visiting last week and I got to show a few family members Polaris and they thought it was beautiful. That's a nice compliment from those who don't play this game. Nice job, Kingsisle!

The Difficulty isn't bad at all. There are a few bosses (Baba Yaga) that are a little difficult to defeat, but that's really it. The quests in this world gave a lot of experience for simple quests and that really surprised me. I don't mind not fighting difficult cheating bosses every fight. I can't tell you how annoying it can be to look to see if a boss cheats or not. Kingsisle should add a feature on the game that shows when a boss cheats or not. That would be very helpful! It was nice not to fight so many cheating bosses in this world. I was wondering how so many people made it to level 110 in a short amount of time, I see why now. I'm not complaining. We don't want another Cool Ranch... I mean Azteca! :P

The Storyline is actually a pretty awesome storyline. I love Pirate101's storyline and I noticed that when Pirate101 was released, that storyline was much better. Today, Wizard101's storyline has improved a lot! I hope they keep up this storyline. I'm not going to spoil anything for those who were not able to quest through this world yet, but I think you'll enjoy it. I always turn the sound up on Wizard101 and listen to the music and dialog. By the way... Ivan is awesome! 



I've been questing on my Fire Wizard through Polaris with Autumn Dreamwalker. It has been a lot of fun questing with Autumn. I'm glad we were able to quest through this world. The only thing I wish I could have from this world is a perfect screenshot of the northern lights for my website! I need this for a background! :P I know it's almost Summer, but I don't mind my blog feeling like Winter... Anyways, Christmas in July is coming up! Don't worry I won't talk about Christmas in this post. Get ready because it will be a lot of fun. July 16th will be a lot of fun! :P I'm going to take my leave now before I make this post all about my Christmas in July Santa Run event that will take place on Saturday, July 16th at 1:00 P.M. CST in the commons (Vampire Realm) - we'll be running around Wizard City. Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral. :P

Wizard101: Summer Party Recap Post!

Hello Wizards!

Today was an amazing day. I was able to meetup with friends again on the game for a party. :D I had a lot of fun and I hope all of you that attended did too. This event was planned at last minute and I didn't promote it as much as I wanted to. I'm still glad those who attended has as much fun as I did. Connor streamed the event on Twitch (click HERE for that), Calamity posted pictures of the event on her Instagram, Fallon Stormcloud made a YouTube video of the afterparty and a special to shoutout to everybody who attended this event. It was nice meeting up with you all again and I can't meet again on July 16th for the Santa Run. :D





Getting Ready for the Wizard Run in Vampire (Area One)



















The Wizard Run (with a Mander, I thought this was funny :D)



















Fireworks or an incoming storm? O:



















Watching PvP with all of these awesome wizards!



















Dance Party inside of my Sultan's Palace.




















Who wouldn't act like a teacher in a classroom? :P





















This party was a lot of fun and I probably have 40 more screenshots that I haven't shared with you all. I was able to take screenshots with y'all and I'm glad I was able to! I usually look back every now and then on those! I hope one day I'll be able to make a slideshow with a lot of the screenshots that I haven't used this year - there are well over 500. Anyways, thank you all for attending this event! I also had a lot of fun and it was great getting the community together again. We'll get the community together again on Saturday, July 16th for a fun Santa Run around Wizard City! Until then, I'll see you around the spiral. :D

Ice Storm Defeats Morganthe!

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having an awesome Wednesday! I was supposed to make this post about two Wednesdays ago, but I thought I'd make it today to start catching up on the many posts that I still want to publish. Many of you might know where I've been on Twitter, but I thought I'd pretend I'm still at a certain place and level here on my website and make posts up until my true current level at the moment. I've had a great time of the game and a few weeks ago my sister and I had help from @KaricTheWizard and @ADreamwalker101



My sister and I have had trouble with gear since the beginning but we always wanted to make it through certain areas no matter what. At the time of questing through the end of Khrsyalis, we were around level 102 or 103. We've actually been in Khrysalis since the beginning of this year, so it was nice to finally complete these last few dungeons with help from Karic and Autumn. We had no trouble at all running through these last three dungeons! :D 

Karic casting glowbugs on the Tree Roots in a Shadow Palace dungeon. Ouch!





















Me casting sirens on the boss since I didn't have Glowbugs at the time! :P 




















The Crew getting ready to fight Morganthe! O:




















My sister casting Lord of Winter on a Morganthe that survived our attacks.




















Thank you both for keeping us alive with your relentless heals & relentless hits! :D




















I hope Morganthe returns one day. Not just saying that to not offend Okidenshi! ;)
Check out her awesome blog at http://that-wizard-oki.tumblr.com/





















Thank you both again for all of the fun! If it wasn't for you, we wouldn't have made it as far as we have (which you will both see in the next few posts). :D It has been a lot of fun questing so much the past few days even though I've had computer issues. Hopefully, a fixed computer means I'll have more time to make more posts like this. By the way... Just a reminder! I'm having an event on Saturday, June 11th in Ravenwood (2:00 P.M. CST - meeting in the Vampire Realm). I hope to see you there. :D Okay.. I should end this post now because I keep reminding all of you about events that I'm planning on having. I promise the rest of Summer will be a lot of fun with plenty of posts. Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral. :)

Graduation from WC (Speaking of that, congrats all of Class of 2016 in the real world). Continue leveling up!
