Do You Want to Build a Sandman?

I'm not exactly sure how Christmas in July started, but I'm sure not complaining. Wizard101 kicked off its celebration on Monday. Players have until July 29th to visit Felix Navidad, grab seasonal items, and participate in Christmas festivities.

One popular destination is the Krampus holiday dungeon. The fight can be accessed from 4 different locations: Ravenwood, Colossus Boulevard, Celestia, and Polaris. No matter which sigil you choose to enter, you'll still have the option of using a wooden, stone, or gold skeleton key once you're inside. Like most holiday antagonists, Krampus doesn't exactly play by the rules. He and his many gingerbread minions will stop at nothing to ruin your Christmas (in July). You can view the battle's cheats and a general strategy here.

Yuletide fish have also returned for Christmas in July. The two Christmas fish you can catch are the Mistletoe Angler and the YuleToy Fish.

  • Mistletoe Angler
    • School: Life
    • Rank: 1
    • Locations: The Commons, Northguard, The Oasis, and Jade Palace

  • YuleToy Fish
    • School: Myth
    • Rank: 1
    • Locations: The Commons, Northguard, The Oasis, and Jade Palace

While the Loremaster always has visitors, Christmas in July may give ice wizards special incentive. Reindeer Knight, an ice version of Deer Knight, can be obtained from the Loremaster for a limited time. The only other way to get this spell is from the Winter Wonder Pack. Among the Loremaster's other goodies is the Krampus spell. Although it was originally a Yuletide exclusive drop, Krampus has since been made craftable. If Christmas in July has got you in the mood, you can pick up the recipe from Master Yan Kan Kook in Shirataki Temple. And even if you don't snag a holiday-themed spell, you may come across some others.

The full list of available Loremaster spells is as follows:

  • Angry Snowpig
  • Athena Battle Sight
  • Brimstone Revenant
  • Catalan
  • Deer Knight
  • Goat Monk
  • Handsome Fomori
  • Hephaestus
  • Keeper of the Flame
  • Krampus
  • Lord of Night
  • Loremaster
  • Luminous Weaver
  • Ninja Piglets
  • Ninja Pigs
  • Pigsie
  • Queen Calypso
  • Reindeer Knight
  • Samoorai
  • Savage Paw
  • Winter Moon

In the spirit of summer giving, you can redeem the code keytokrampus for a free gold skeleton key. With it, you can enter the feasting hall and face off against Krampus himself. Hopefully you're not on the naughty list.
