Wizard101: Bring Back In-Game Contests

For those who were playing Wizard101 at the time, 2015 was a pretty cool year. Jewel socketing made its introduction, sought-after gear could be found in ultra dungeons, and the players welcomed the beginning of the third arc with open arms. However, the beginning of frequent in-game contests/tournaments is something that, in my opinion, disappeared all too quickly.

Wizard101: Abigail Doolittle is the True Villain

So there I was ... trying to maneuver around Marleybone during Sparck’s community livestream last week. He’s currently questing in the dark gang-infested world and I wanted to join in on the fun. Although it’s nice to revisit old areas and take in all the tiny details I missed before, unexpected trips can also lead to unpleasant reunions. While on my way to Digmoore Station, I saw her. The side NPC that still irks me to this very day: Abigail Doolittle.

Wizard101 Needs More for the Holidays

No doubt the sales of chocolate and flowers have been increasing in the spiral. It's Valentine's Day next week after all. Date or no date, Valentina Heartsong comes to the Shopping District every year to share her holiday goodies with the residents of Wizard City. As much as I look forward to her visit, wouldn't it be cool if there was something more this time of year?

Wizard101: Stories and Tips from a Former Merc

Back in 2009, a little group called "Mercenaries for Hire" was born. It was a Wizard101 "guild" that aimed to help players with difficult bosses and dungeons. . I ended up joining the merry band of misfits in 2014. Although it was a LOT of work, my time as a merc is one of the most memorable aspects of being a part of this community. Helping others deepened my understanding of average player skill and challenged me in ways that I had never thought about before.

Wizard101: The Crown Shop Problem

My heavy involvement in the KingsIsle community has exposed me to numerous opportunities ranging from contests to giveaways to anything in-between. While I started with the equivalent of a broke piggy bank, I can now say that I'm pretty well off in the virtual currency department. As of writing this article, I have 106, 962 crowns. Not too shabby ... but I've run into a problem. I don't know what to do with them.

Wizard101 - Bring on 2019

With all the eggnog now thoroughly sipped and Santa Claus back at the North Pole, it’s time to start thinking about what 2019 will hold. I know the Wizard101 community is still hoping for a 7th character slot and a renaming feature (among countless other things) as far as in-game additions go, but today I wanted to focus on my more personal 2019 game ambitions.

The Most Magical Time of Year in Wizard101

Do you think students at Ravenwood actually get a winter break? I think it'd be deserved, but then again, there's always something threatening the spiral. A week off could be what the villains need to gain the upper hand. You know what ... it doesn't matter. My character has graduated Ravenwood, the newest crisis was averted, and now I'm planning on just sitting back and sipping a hefty amount of eggnog.

The Hills are Alive: New Wizard101 Aero Plains Bundle

Even before Empyrea Part Two hit the live realm, a new Wizard101 bundle had made its way into the game. Since 2014, KingsIsle has been an active participant in Extra Life - a charity event aimed at helping sick and injured kids by uniting gamers around the world. To encourage their community to help in this effort, KingsIsle provided prizes for when players raised a certain amount of money.

Wizard101: Empyrea Part Two Goes Live

I know it's impossible to please everyone in a gaming community, but Empyrea Part Two has a lot going for it. For starters, Empyrea Part Two shows how much this game has grown over 10 years. It's absolutely stunning. To get a quick aerial tour of the new areas, check out this fly-cam video KingsIsle put out last week. It shows off all the amazing views that this new update has to offer.

Wizard101 - The Game is Afoot: Great Detective Bundle

Wizard101 recently fully embraced the "Sherlock Bones" in all of us by creating the Great Detective Bundle. Though I don't know much about Sherlock Holmes outside of a few well-known quotes (yes, I'm very uncultured), I think the bundle itself is pretty cool on its own. Big fans will get and appreciate the nods, but non-Holmes fans like myself get to go on a hot air balloon ride. Everybody wins!

Wizard101: 5 Spooky Spiral Locations

Halloween might be two weeks away, but Wizard101's parties are happening all month long. Though in-game meet-ups are typically held in castles or popular world hubs, I thought I'd share some more uncommon "spooky" spiral locations that could work as event backdrops.

Like a Puppet on a String: Wizard101 Brings Spooky Back

As soon as the calendar read October 1st, KingsIsle flipped their Halloween switch and unleashed all manner of darkness and demons back into the spiral. Talk about wasting no time! Although most of 2018's spookiness are old favorites, KingsIsle did supply some new surprises for the brave wizards of the spiral.

Wizard101 10th Anniversary: A Community Perspective

September may be halfway over, but Wizard101's decaversary celebration is still in full swing. If you haven't already, be sure to chat with Gamma to pick up a very special birthday-themed quest called "Time Has Come." When you complete it, you'll receive an anniversary statue that mirrors the one in The Commons. Speaking of, I think it's pretty crazy that after all these years; The Commons is still "the" community hotspot to hang out and make friends. Some things never change ... and sometimes that's a good thing.

Sending the Spiral to Steam

Just in time for its 10th Anniversary, Wizard101 is taking to Steam. It’s a move I’ve wanted KingsIsle to make for quite some time now, and I’m ecstatic that they’re finally taking the leap. However, there are a few important things that players need to know before they pack up their traditional launcher.

My Labyrinth Struggle

As a tournament master, I make sure derby tournaments run smoothly and solve any problems that may arise. Strangely enough, my most frustrating derby experience didn't come from running a tournament. It came from preparing for a tournament.
