Wizards who have played Wizard101 for a long time know things that are hard for new players to figure out especially for those without open chat. So in answer to a question on a crafting post I thought I'd show those that don't know how to change realms a quick how-to.
Changing realms can help with:
a) finding more crafting material including more items per pick-up unless someone has beat you to it
b) getting away from a crowd if you can't get your team into an instance because there are too many random people joining
c) help you collect more items quickly in collecting quests
d) can help you find more of a particular kind of monster to fight
e) can increase your chances of collecting drop items
So play around with it if you haven't used it and if you do use realm hopping you probably know these tricks plus a few. Do write us with tips or ideas you think new and old wizards need to know.
