Mystery Composer Reveal

So the word got out that the Wintertusk composer was in fact Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers.  :)  (girls scream here)

I for one didn't know he was a composer but I think he did a great job.  Not only that I think it says a lot about Wizard101 that they are able to attact such hot talent and that they try to have fun with their game contributions.



I was laughing at some of the quest names in GH the other night.  I appreciate when they put in little quest names that relate to shows or silly sayings. One could say it gives me a virtual chuckle :) now and then. 

What quest names have you noticed that relate to TV shows or movies?  Comment below with the quest name and what movie or thing it relates to.

I also noticed a lot of connections in the game to the new Thor movie.  I hadn't realized how many connections there were in the quest lines and story lines and even spells to the legends of Vikings.

Level 35 Spell and Wintertusk Quests

I was able to confirm my suspicion that you need to be done Grizzleheim to get the new spell and also the Wintertusk quests.  I was able to pick up these quests on my level 56 death wizard who is part way through Celestia and my level 60 ice.  But I was not able to see the prompts nor see the quests at the NPC quest helpers on a level 55 fire wizard who is more than half way through Celestia.

Storm Drain tower has some interesting quirks that I'll talk more about shortly.

Happy questing!

Wintertusk is being installed tonight!



Some interesting news on the spells:
