Halloween Housekeeping

So I was doing some spooky spell casting tonight with shadow spells in between giving out candy.  We had a lot of trick-or-treaters this year and we ran out of candy! *shocked face* :O

At work today I was a ninja.  Yes, they encourage us to dress up and last year I was lame so this year I did and it was fun.  There were some amazing costumes including a Halo guy who looked totally real and a sheep and some "minions" from Despicable Me and a sheep (don't laugh... she won the contest) and a guy wearing pajamas and hugging on to a Spider Man doll.  There are some other crazy ones like a dragon-rider and a punk rocker. I think the guy that was the punk rocker was just going back to his high-school persona.

And yes I totally embarrassed myself and did a nunchuck routine which was really kinda lame because I was using 'chucks made from 15 sheets of rolled paper per side and some cord.  They were a last minute hack but they mostly worked.

So anyway, back to the shadow spells...  here are the ones I'm talking about.  They use shadow pips (black pips) even though they say they take 0 pips I guess they require a black pip to be present which sometimes can take a long time.  So here are the bad-boys...

Now shadow magic has a price.  Use these spells only if you are willing to pay the price!  You will notice a new shadow spell tab in your spell book when you get these.  They can be added to your deck like regular cards but used only with shadow pips so good luck keeping these in your hand during a duel.  

They allow you to create a positive affect but with a bad effect which gradually wears off over 3 turns.

There are some subtleties about these spells that require an explanation which I'll detail in future posts.

Khrycket Locations win Wizard101's Khysalis World

Where do you find the khryckets in Khrysalis?  If you're the kind who needs help (like me) watch for the arrow on the following maps.  Duncan and Suri were kind enough to blaze their way through Khrysalis and find these for you.

Bastion:  Khrycket is located inside building off in a side room.

MoonCliffs Khrycket: is under the tree.

SilentMarket: Khrycket is inside WarRoom Building.

King Artorius Level 90 Spells

Suri Spiritcaller contributed this cap set of the King Artorius spell for the different schools.  One of these day's I'd love to see a high powered Ice spell or some Ice gear that has decent shielding again... lately any gear that gives me a decent hit also seems to leave me with very little shielding.

But without further ado, let's get to the spells details..

Thanks Duelist101 this is a great video.....

Test Realm Online with Khrysalis

For those of you that don't have test realm you can go here: and  read the terms and log in to get test realm.  If you have the test realm program already you can simply log in and it will auto-update.

A new world is out called Khrysalis

See you online!

Here are some pics from the quests and new world.  Don't forget you need to be level 90 to start this new world and you can level up from there.  The XP is given away fairly easily at first anyway and I gained half a bar just from a few quests.

New ice spell animation
(spell is available without a defeat quest... just talk to King Arthur)
 Of course his spell features him and excalibur... (it seems to be the same spell for all schools but likely different damage)  The ice one does over 700 damage with some shield breaking and gives you a pip afterward.

To start the new world quests and the quest for the new spell talk to Merle Ambrose first as usual.
 Your school teacher will have you go to the school hall to get to the in-between realm to forge a new spiral key.

 Here is the Myth forge for creating the spiral key.
 You'll have to talk to the ghostly images of several quest leaders and heroes of the past.

Your first quest is to fight some trees with 3500 health.  Only 2 join so it's not too bad.

 This sounds serious!  Time to bring in the epic wizards!

Trickery... I like the sound of that (hacker here :)

Woot!  It shows up on the world tree now that I made my VERY OWN key for the spiral!

Ew!  Here's one of the creepy bugs you will encounter... I hope you're not squeemish about creepy crawlies!
 Spiders... why does it always have to be spiders!

So put on your big wizard boots... you'll need them.  The bosses here are tough and you'll not be able to solo them without some luck involved, or should I say when luck is against you... I pulled about 20 cards without a single one of my vast number of shields and despite my healing and hitting really hard I was down to 96 health before I knew what happened.  I think next time I'll load in even more shields and put on my healing pet rather than my hitting pet.  Anyway. I'd be interested to hear what your experiences are with the new world!

Leave some comments on what you've seen and what your experiences are...
(and don't forget to enter the contest while there is still time)

See you in the spiral ~ Vale

Pet Traits for Success in PVP by Mamzell

(¸.°*”˜´¯).╟╢║║O (¸.°*”˜´¯)
Mamzell here to talk about Wizard strategy...

Which category do you fit into?  Are you a Defensive player or a Offensive player?

When setting up your wizard you can choose one or like I prefer choose to set your player up to go either way.  I like the ability to change a few equipment options and be able to either hit hard and fast or have the staying power to be able to take a beating.  Since the Storm players have been given the ability to knock ya socks off and not be blocked we had to rethink strategy.... "Thanks to Duncan aka Luke" and his great insight to strategy I have learned the following.....

Offensive Players:
1. If you set your player to hit hard you want the critical possibility to be over 300.  The higher the better.  The thought here is if you hit first and hit hard you don't need defense.  ;-)
 2.  A good pet that gives you 4 types of hit strength and 1 heal.  (May  cast fairy is the best heal in my opinion.)
This is a perfect Offensive pet ;-)

3.  Your pip percentage should be as high as possible.

Defensive Players:

1.  Clothing and gear that offer your player protection from hits. The higher your Resistance and Block Rating the better.

2.  A pet that has 10% Spell Proof, 5% Spell Defy, May Cast Fairy, Unicorn, and spritely.

This is a perfect defense pet ;-)

So which type player are you going to choose? 
The main thing is to just have some Wizardly fun ;-)

Blue Raptor Claw Giveaway

I am sending out the last 150 blue raptor claw codes from the contest.  100 made it through my email before it kicked me out again.  I'm hoping the last 50 will go out tomorrow night if they let me back in.

I'll be giving away raptor claw wands periodically so keep an eye out for new chances to win.
