So rumor has it that pets will get a boost to a new level. This is pretty cool considering that my pets have some killer abilities. Of course the new level will probably take a million years to get to but I'm kinda OK with that. My main problem now is that I have so many awesome mixes that I don't really know which is my favorite.
Also awesome... probably in anticipation of this new pet level, members are getting double the pet training and pet snack bonuses. So if you want to bump your pet a couple levels with some mega snacks now is the time to get training!
June 18th is "National Go Fishing Day" but that's not the exciting part! What's exciting is that Wizard101 is having a fishing contest!
Get your gear ready and if you're off school jump into the water from 9:00 AM to 11:59 PM.
Your goal is to catch the new "Basking in the Sun" shark as many times as you can. For every "Basking" shark you catch you'll get an entry into a drawing for either 60,000 crowns or one of several possible 10,000 crown prizes.
So get out there and catch some fish!
But remember... the Dekos and Cudas won't do... you need the summer fish to get entered into the contest!
The new Darkmoor-themed card pack gives some cool new gear and decorations as well as cards and gems. Here are a few shots of the packs that I opened recently.
I didn't manage to get a pet or a mount but I found a few really cool things...
Some cool paintings and gear for the house.
A bunch of new housing decorations and a pair of boots for a different school.
A gem and of course books are appreciated for the house. Also mote's are hard to find so keep these for crafting.
And more castle decorations.
And more ...
I got really excited thinking the Diamond was a gem but it's a crafting ingredient.
More housing items AND a robe! Yay!
And shoes! Yay!
On the right you can see the stats of the coat. It looks like you might be able to build a set of gear that work actually help with cross-school spell casting. Like if you're using a second school amulet! That would be way cool to be able to cast a strong second-school spell.
As you can see the boots also help with cross-school spell casting. Nice!
That's pretty awesome. I'll throw on a storm amulet and get dressed for battle and see what happens!
So. I'm assuming that the gear may not be exactly fit for PVP in the high ranks but I bet it's pretty fun to quest with a second school set up and a few good treasure cards!
Let me know what you think of the new Terror Hoard pack and if you've found anything really awesome in it!
