April Contest Finished and What's Next

We had a lot of codes so there were a lot of winners!  So those lucky ones will be have received emails already with codes.  I don't know who got what code so I hope you enjoy your prize.

Don't forget to pop over to test realm and check things out.

Well, after you're done exploring test realm and trying hard to catch up on your quests in the regular realm, I'm hopeful that we can do something...

The Old Ravenwood...
An old blog friend sent an email to me that reminded me of all the awesome things we used to do.  There were lots of parties and online meets.  Not to mention more friendship and fun.  Like him, I miss the old days of hanging out and really having the time to talk and look out for each-other and hold parties meet and greets.

I've been part of the problem though. Life has changed a lot with a lot more worries, more obligations, and a lot more work... and for everything I choose to spend my time on I give up something else. But what have I been giving up already?  My buddies and friends who have been with me through hard times and good times.

If you have been missing out on friend time on Wizard I hope we can find those activities and things that draw us closer together again.

Please comment and vote with your comments for what kind of activities you'd like to help with.  I think Ravenwood Ball should come back along with some of the other meet/greets and questing parties.

So if you're on board with the idea or you want to suggest a new one or especially if you want to help with one please leave a comment and tell us what you're up to and we'll see how we can coordinate and get the word out.

Your friend Vale

Test Realm and Khrysalis

Test realm is open with cool new features I have been wishing for for a long time but I assumed they would be too hard for KI to program.  But they did it!

If you have a membership you can log into the web site and download the test realm version of Wizard.  (It makes a copy of your character and your actions there don't affect your actual wizard so don't expect experience or purchased items to carry over to your regular account.)

So what cool features are being tested in Test realm?

1) You can team up with other wizards on boss battles.  When you're standing on the sigil you can pick the Team Up button and wait for other players in other realms to join.

2) You can now teleport back to instances in cases of defeat or accidentally teleporting out.

And Khrysalis part II is not out yet in test realm but something tells me it might be out soon.  If you find it online at any point please leave a comment ASAP.

I'm trying out a new email system and I expect we'll test it's limits so it may be a work in progress.
