Bunny Run 2019: Your Checklist

Hello Wizards!

Can you believe how fast this month has flown by? Easter is already quickly approaching (my local meteorologists says it's going to be Sunny in the Mid-70s making for one of the nicest Easter Days in years - at least in my location). On top of that, our Bunny Run is also quickly approaching! Today I thought I'd make a checklist of things you should do if you want to participate in this year's Bunny Run event (Sunday, April 28th).

Read Our Official Bunny Run Post
We published our Official Bunny Run Post a few weeks ago. This post includes a list of activities (including when the run will take place), a video guide which shows where we will run, where we'll be streaming this event (very important part of participating in this event, so when we go live on the event day, let everyone know we're Live on SpiralVision). Overall, this post is a very important post to read if you plan on participating in this year's event. If you invite your friends to this event, please remind them to read the official post - you can find a link below. :) 

Watch The Official Bunny Run Stream
I know I've mentioned it above, but I am going to mention it again. The stream is a very important part of participating in the event. Here you'll hear if we switch realms for an activity or you can ask questions in the Twitch Chat. So make sure to watch the stream if you want to participate in all of our activities, find out who to add for port buses, codes (such as the Rental Bunny Mount) to redeem, and more. Our official stream for this event will begin at 1pm Central / 2pm Eastern on Sunday, April 28th. We hope to see you there! And when we go live for this event, please shout "The Bunny Run Stream is LIVE on SpiralVision on Twitch" in the game to help us spread the word. :) 

Follow Our Twitch Channel

Follow Us On Twitter
Last, but certainly not least, would be to follow us on Twitter. Here you can find contest announcements, event changes, and more. We created this new Twitter as a way to help spread the word not only about our events but out streams in general. If you want an update as to when we go live on Twitch, this account would be perfect to follow! We will let everyone know on the Bunny Run day when we're live on this account. Thank you all for reading this post. We hope to see you at this year's event.

Malistaire Dungeon Run Stream: Tuesday, April 9th

Hello Wizards!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Today I thought I'd make a post about one of our upcoming streams. As many of you already know, we started group questing in September. We've recently made it to Dragonspyre & we're now about to defeat Malistaire to finish up the first story arc.

I thought it would be fun to share this upcoming stream more than our previous streams since we've made it as far as we have made it in questing. I hope you're able to join us in defeating Dragonspyre Malistaire! Everyone is welcome to attend. If you would like to help us out, more information about our upcoming stream/event can be found below.

Exploring The Wizard101 Test Realm - Spoilers Ahead!

Hello Wizards!

Kingsisle recently released the Wizard101 Test Realm for a variety of quality of life updates. Among these various updates were new graphics for most of the remaining areas in Wizard City. The only place left out was Crab Alley. I'm sure they have a lot of plans for that area, especially after the amazing work they've already done. Speaking of that amazing work, let's have a look at some of the new areas... Reminder: This post does include spoilers of the new graphics update.

As I mentioned above, Kingsisle updated the majority of Wizard City. The newly updated areas include Colossus Boulevard, Cyclops Lane, Dark Cave, Firecat Alley, Triton Avenue, Haunted Cave, and Sunken City. It was so much fun exploring these areas that they almost felt like a new world (see my reactions below). Last year I remember my level of shock when we first saw part of the new Wizard City Graphics. I will say that Kingsisle put just as much, if not more, work into this new Spring Update.

 Fun fact: The Spring 2019 Update for Wizard is the largest Spring Update since 2014. 

I am so happy to see Kingsisle is continuing to improve the graphics beyond what I was ever expecting. I'd like to thank Kingsisle on this post for releasing such a great update. I'm already looking forward to seeing what you have planned for Crab Alley and Krokotopia. After seeing this new update, I can't imagine what Krokotopia is going to look like when it's finally updated - they've already updated the Fire Elementals, so get ready. I hope they continue updating the worlds of this game to bring in lots of new players. The game looks far better than it ever has. Keep up the great work, Kingsisle! :)

It's April - The Right Path

Hi there!

I can't believe today marks the 1st Day of April. How is this year flying by so quickly? I feel like we just celebrated New Years 2019. With time flying by so quickly, that means our events are quickly approaching. Once the March/April arrives, we have events nearly every month for the rest of the year. We already have so many plans for this year! I'm going to add that there are no April Fools jokes in this post. I won't promise the rest of the day won't be like that though. ;)

Our first upcoming event, Bunny Run 2019, is quickly approaching. This event will take place on Sunday, April 28th. The official post was published just a few days ago. This year's event will take place a week after Easter since we were both extremely busy the beginning of the year. It's tough waiting so long, but I am looking forward to hanging out with all of y'all again. It's also going to be nice seeing all of the bunnies running around at this year's event (rental bunny mounts will be provided to all who don't have one - thanks to our awesome community manager). Anyway, if y'all would like more information about our upcoming 4th Annual Bunny Run, feel free to click on the link below. We hope to see y'all there!

Speaking of events... I haven't just been preparing for the Bunny Run. I've also been preparing for this year's Holiday Mashup (which will take place in July). I won't share too much information on this post, but I will say that this year's Holiday Mashup will be epic. I will say that the HM Pathway is going to be the craziest & the longest pathway that we've ever had. If you're up for a challenge, I'd definitely pay attention to this event. So what does this event have to do with April? I'll be spending most of this month getting stuff together for it. I'll be working with other awesome cohosts towards Summer to get much other important stuff together. So keep an eye out these next few months for new updates on this event. You won't want to miss it! 

One final thing. I'd like to address my lack of blog posts over the past few months. Now I'm going to be real. I needed time to figure out my position in this community. The early part of this year was crazy both here and in my personal life, but sometimes you need one crazy moment to see the many good moments. The past few years in my personal life has been crazy - my sister was both involved in a car accident and recently diagnosed with epilepsy, my dad has had health scares over the past few months, and there have been many other things that I can't mention here. While it's no excuse for my behavior over the past few months (really years), all of this has indeed been a factor of how I handle things here in the community.

For years, I went down the wrong road where I hit crazy bumps, wild turns, and more. I've only recently found the right road. One way to get back on the right road is to choose to get back on the right road. One way of doing that is to see what you're doing wrong and change your ways. At the end of the day, your happiness is what matters. Do what makes you happy, as long as it's not hurting yourself or anyone else. What makes me happy is making blog posts, hosting events, and streaming. I look forward to doing all of that during my time here and not returning to the wrong path. The right path may have a few bumps here and there, since I, and life, is far from perfect. I'm prepared for that though. Things are definitely looking better either way. Anyway, I'd like to thank all of you for your support over the years even when I was on the wrong path. I'd also like to thank you all for reading this blog post. Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral. Always be yourself.
