Wizard101 is a free-to-play fantasy MMORPG from KingsIsle Entertainment that allows players to take the role of students at a school for wizards. Players create a character and then enter one of seven magical schools, learning the ropes and some new skills, then plunging into the magical, sometimes humorous storyline.
The game's story quests follow the players journey to stop the evil wizard Malistaire Drake and foil his various schemes. Wizard101 has magic classes, wizard duels and more for players to discover, and the game distinguishes itself with many roleplaying opportunities, quests, an abundance of skills to master, and a collectible card battle system.
KingsIsle Entertainment's game is suitable for players of all ages and is available through several payment options. Players can play for free, unlock premium zones and items by purchasing and using Crowns, or pay a monthly subscription to open up all areas and features.
Wizard101 has added plenty of side areas for players to explore through the years. While they're all fun to experience at least once, some hold more value than others. In this post, I'll be sharing which side zones/worlds I think are must-dos, maybes, and ones you could probably live without.
It's all about friends during this fabulous February! The annual Friendship Festival celebration will return to Wizard101 very shortly. As always, Valentina HeartSong will come out of hiding to share her unique loot with all the friendly wizards in the Shopping District. I don't know about you, but I've made a ton of friends throughout my Wizard101 journey. Many of them I feel will be friends for life.
While game difficulty disagreements have always been around, it took center stage when Mirage, Wizard101's newest world, Mirage, made its debut and it took some players by surprise. Mirage could easily be a tough adjustment for some. Difficulty concerns were echoed on the official message boards though other players welcomed the change in difficulty and praised KingsIsle for the new challenge.
KingsIsle decided to kick off 2017 with a bang by introducing a brand new hoard pack to Wizard101. Inspired by Mirage, the Ghulture's Hoard Pack is any desert lover's dream.
Can you believe it? 2017 is less than a week away! Although it wasn't perfect, 2016 was a pretty great year for wizards in the spiral. Just last month, Wizard101's newest update introduced the desert world of Mirage and a new max level of 120. Other notable additions were divide and conquer spells, pip conversion, and faction vendors.
