2) Set your video settings to a lower number to allow you to better use your computer's desktop space
3) Set your full-screen option to OFF so that you can switch between windows by clicking the window you want with your mouse.
4) Log your other character in (note this cannot be a character who is on the same login username and password as your first). This character must be a character who has a DIFFERENT login username and password.
5) Once your second wizard is logged in you can start playing together with a little window switching. If you have two computer monitors you can drag a window to each side allowing you a smooth transition between copies of the program.
How I get my potions filled quickly?
Play potion motion up to level 3 then quit for each potion you need filled.
Play one additional time if your mana orb is not currently full.
To get potion motion action started quickly pull the middle two columns down until a few items line up, after that you can quickly drag rows left and right to quickly make matches that will get you very quickly to level 2 if no 3 without any serious thought or effort.
So next time you need to do an instance you can fill up in a couple minutes!

I'm hoping some of these strange things have been fixed and look forward to seeing you on test.

The downside to this option is that there are a lot of restrictions on it:
1) The user must be 18 or older
2) The user must have a subscription
3) The user must have a credit card on the account (and possibly be the sole account owner)
4) The user must have used the credit card on file to make a purchase through the wizard site

If don't already have the test realm client program you can download it by:
1) logging in to the wizard101.com main page using your wizard's username and password.
2) clicking on the red ribbon on the right hand side of the screen. (see below) or go to this link: https://www.wizard101.com/site/home2/wizard101/page_8ad6a4041e1e376d011e47499916066e
The first thing you'll notice is the change in the chat window. With the new chat window you can say things that everyone can see who's in the same realm and world as you. The other chat window or tab allows you to chat with people near you without "shouting" to the entire level. Currently personal text messaging doesn't seem to be working. You can also create groups (it seems like you can only belong to one at a time) in which you are temporarily connected to a group of friends to whom you can chat and port even if they're not on your normal friend list. This seems to be a feature to assist in questing in an instanced level or possibly creating a guild.
Make Your Own Items To Sell
You can get a quest in Old Towne (Wizards in the Mist) which will give you a crafting station that allows you to make items. She'll send you on a quest to find "mist wood" which can be found mostly in Marleybone it seems for right now. With three sets of wood you can have lady by Zeke in Olde Towne make you a crafting station. Once you have a crafting station you have to buy a recipe from one of the vendors. The recipe will require certain ingredients. These you have to collect either by finding them on the street or by buying them or picking up boss drops. With the right items to fill the recipe you can make items to sell at the Grizzleheim bazaar.
Grizzleheim missing in the Spiral Door?
You will also quickly notice that the Grizzleheim world is not available in the spiral door. Go to OldeTowne and pick up a quest for the new world from the bear. This should prompt your system to start loading the new world. After you visit Grizzleheim briefly you can talk to Merle Ambrose and get the official quest that will give you the new world as an option when you visit the spiral door.
Here are some wallpaper quality shots of the new world :)

You'll get a facebook update note that gives you a one time code for free gold. Enter it in the codes page after logging into the www.wizard101.com web site. After you have entered the code just log into the game. The character you log in with will be able to claim the gold. :)
Have fun and maybe see you on line.

Speaking of chain-stunners some good friends of mine got chained by these guys who were bragging of being reported over ten times in two days. While I gudgingly admit that there are no hard rules against this kind of behavior I'm coming to believe that stuns should take health from the player that casts it or should only work one time during a battle or simply be removed all together. Certainly with a multi-person chain stun the battle is lost before it has begun for the challengers. I believe the makers of Wizard101 need to address this problem very soon. Arena fans are becoming extremely frustrated by this unfair practice.

The play was written and produced by Suri Stormshade. She plays the part of Sylvia Drake while Charles Goldriver plays both Malistaire and Cyrus Drake.
In a historical, possibly first ever... I give you the back story to how Malistaire became evil.
