Test Realm with Major Upgrades

Amazing new changes have come to Wizard101 test realm...

Supercharge your gear with jewel enhancements!  You'll be able to add rare gems to your gear that can add extra magical power.


Among many hundreds of other changes there is now fishing in Dragonspyre.  Not only this but there are new bosses in different world that will drop skeleton keys that get you into different areas that you really want to be if you're looking for rare drops.

















What's even more cool is that you can now join a team!  I'll post more about this shortly...












So if you haven't already, log into Wizard101.com and grab the test realm download.  You have to click the red ribbon on the top right of the page and it will send you to the download page for test realm.  You'll need to click the tiny box that says you agree to the terms and then you get the download link.

P.S.. If you want to install it to a hard drive which is not the default, like D for example... there's a link on the progress bar that when clicked brings up install options that allows you to pick a different path. For me, I had to type over the C:\program files\Wizard101TestRealm\  with D:\program files\Wizard101TestRealm\  With that done, and the install underway the game is safely installed on a drive with enough room!

Free Training Point Buy Back for Members

The Five Boxes event is back through March 31!  So jump in and do some time traveling.  Oh, hey, I wonder if they will ever have a TARDIS mount!

Also you'll see some new fish swimming around the spiral that are spring themed.

But this weekend you'll notice that members can get FREE TRAINING POINT BUY BACK!  I'm not sure what I want to do about that. if I buy back I might want to get more dispels but I also like having all the specific shields (see previous posts on 'Shield School") so I'm going to have to ponder this one.  Happy point buying back.

See you in the spiral.

Hoping for a Yorkie wizard pet

So. I've seen all kinds of pets around the spiral...

But I've never seen one this cute!




This pup, Rockwell Valerian Nightsong, came to me specifically because of Wizard101.  (yep) A great Wiz IRL friend's Yorkie, Miss Pheobe, had a puppy and long story short, because of that awesome event we were able to have this guy as part of our lives. I was going to ask Wizard for a Yorkie pet for my own self but I think if they end up making one for us the very first one should go to Suri Spiritcaller.

I don't think a day goes by without hearing the word "cute" about 40 times because of this amazing little guy.  This is his typical attentive look.  He's always anxious to try to read our minds about whatever we might want to do. Recently he learned the word "laser" and gets really excited when you shine one for him to chase.  He also does the Lassie thing when he wants you to go somewhere to help him.  He will look at you then run a few paces toward the thing he wants and will pant very loudly "heh heh" as he runs back and forth to make sure you're following.  I'll see if I can get a video of him doing that.

Anyway, I think if you want a smash hit pet KI, this would be the dog of dogs to have.

Double XP for Pet Training

I guess someone at KingsIsle heard the sound of ultimate pet training suffering and brought some epic magic to the Spiral... DOUBLE PET TRAINING POINTS (for members).  Not only do you get double the XP for playing the pet game but also for the pet snack.

This is awesome!  I've leveled one pet to mega in short order.  I guess I can stop grieving over the Grimoire.

So get on and train some pets!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!

What could cause a normally zen Wizard to scream the scream of ultimate suffering?

Remember I was working very patiently on my Ice Grimoire.  I grew plants to give him treats, I took him to the park and played mini games with him to grow him up and help him learn.  I took him on battle runs and tested his abilities.  Everything was wonderful and he was growing by leaps and bounds.  It took days upon days to get him to Mega.  Those last 2000 points worth of snacks and training was exhausting, intense and draining but my Grimiore was right there by my side.

What happened next you ask?  What could cause the scream of ultimate suffering?

Mana Gift is what happened. My tears have raised the ocean levels making some beach property owning millionaires move their homes back a couple inches. Some of them are defiantly surfing the slightly improved waves and wearing flip flops in their slightly wetter back yards.  But not me!  I'm still grieving over destroyed expectations.  Why must my Grimoire get such a grim talent as the final Mega talent? For those of you that feel my pain, I mourn with you.

Will your son or daughter grow up to be awesome without lame talents Grimiore?  You had such potential but now the torch of potential awesomeness must be passed to your children.
