Wizard101 New Special Bundles!

Posted by cordelephant2 on June 2, 2013 at 9:15 PM Comments comments (0)

The new Wizard101 Special Bundles!

The first bundle is a bit like the Pagoda Gauntlet. It is called the WinterBane Gauntlet. I presume that Kingsisle is now continuing to call bundles that contain a housing item dungeon, like the pagoda, gauntlets. $39 at local Walmart and Target stores.


Here are some pictures of the contents of the Winterbane Gauntlet: 


The Atlantean Bundle is the second on our list. This bundle is more similar to the Prehistoric bundle, than anything else. It contains a "Magic Fish Tank", much like the "Magic Tree House." it is $29 at Walmarts all around.

here are some screenshots of THIS bundle: 

the magic fish tank!

The third, and final, bundle (which, in my opinion is the BEST) is the Olympian Bundle! $39 at Gamestop. It is much like the majority of the bundles out there, like the super, majestic, and Dino.


Here is a list of all the gift cards available for Wizard101.

Test Realm Update (May 2013)

Posted by cordelephant2 on May 22, 2013 at 10:05 PM Comments comments (0)

New test Realm features released!

the following changes and things have been added and made:

===MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS===

Let the music play, in a whole new way!

Find these new Playable Musical Instruments in the Crown Shop for Crowns and Gold. Place these furniture items in your house or dorm, and start playing! Make sure your Music Volume is up if you want to hear these instruments!.

 

We're starting with a four piece band: Bass Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drum Kit and Keyboards!

With these new Playable Musical Instruments you can:

Play preset music loops

Sync up preset music between all your instruments

Compose your own music (up to 700 notes!)

Sync up your own music with other people who are playing the instruments in a house!

Instruments come with 8 preset loops.

Loop 8 for both the Toy Piano and the Lead Guitar is the Wizard City theme

Friends can compose music at your house

    


=== PVP TOURNAMENTS ===

Tournaments are an extension of our current Player vs Player system that allows you to match up and compete in a longer term matches that will get you special rewards! If you like Ranked pvp, you'll LOVE tournaments!

How do I play?

If you're level 10 or higher, speak to Diego in Unicorn Way - follow his instructions and he will send you inside the PvP zone. Use the Tournament Pedestal to see what Tournaments are scheduled. To join a Tournament, click the Tournament Name. You can join a Tournament by yourself, or with a group (if you are in a group!)

What happens in a Tournament?

Tournament duels last for a set amount of time depending on the type of Tournament. A 1v1 Tournament lasts for 60 minutes. A 2v2 Tournament lasts for 80 minutes. A 3v3 and a 4v4 Tournament lasts for 120 minutes. If your match runs out of time, Diego will determine the winner based on how he calculates the remainder of the duel will play out. Each Tournament will have a set number of opponents to duel. You are not out of the Tournament the first time you are defeated - everyone will play four matches within a tournament!

What can I Win?

Everyone who participates in a Tournament gets a reward! When you compete in a Tournament you have a chance to win exclusive Tournament Prizes such as rare mounts, rare pets and lots of other surprises. The higher you place in the final rankings, the better chance you have at getting a really awesome reward! If you place 1st 2nd or 3rd in a Tournament, you will receive a special Trophy Housing item!

These Tournaments cost Crowns to enter and the rewards will reflect their cost.

Tournaments cost 1499 Crowns to enter but Members have a discounted price as a Member benefit. Members only pay 899 Crowns per Tournament.

there are many other changed made and things of that sort. Read about them here: https://www.wizard101.com/game/update-notes/testrealm" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://https://www.wizard101.com/game/update-notes/testrealm


Wizard101 HUGE update [test realm only, as of now]

Posted by cordelephant2 on April 15, 2013 at 3:35 AM Comments comments (7)

Wizard101 if having a GIGANTIC new update, and it is currently available for testing, in the test realm! (please note, test realm is a members only feature.)

Here are some of the new features, and changes, being added:

===Introducing Events===


A study group found a book that was supposed to be shelved in the restricted section of the library, and when they opened it up, they were possessed by its strong, dark magic. This magic was so powerful, so far reaching, that it touched six of our worlds, and found affinity with not only the students, but other creatures in the Spiral, binding them all to this magic’s will.

 

All Wizards who have completed "Unicorn's Folly" quest in Unicorn Way, come see me in the Wizard City Library at once, for I need you to investigate further!

Rewards for participating in the Lost Pages Events will scale to your level and the level of the creatures you are facing. A level 90 Wizard in Unicorn Way isn't going to get high level rewards, so seek out appropriate challenges for your level.


===Changes to Current Ranked PvP & Derby===

"Change is never easy, young Wizards. As we go forward with some changes to our Player vs Player matching system and rewards system, it is necessary for us to put everyone back on the same level playing field. To do this, we will be ending what is called the 'First Age' of PvP in Wizard101. This means that you will receive a badge that reflects the status of your PvP rank the day this update is applied to the Live Game. You will be able to display this badge at any time."

We will begin the Second Age of Wizard101 PvP with the following changes:

Player vs Player team match formulas have once again been adjusted as of 04 April 2013 and will now rely even more heavily on the level of the Wizards. This should finally reduce uneven team matching and prevent "puppet teams".

To help offset the initial advantage of going first in a duel, the team that goes second will gain an extra Pip, or potentially a Power Pip, depending on the individual's Pip Chance.

We have also made changes that will reduce the time you have to wait for a match to be made, both in the Player vs Player Matches as well as in the Pet Derby matches.

New Leaderboards are available in the game for you to keep track of your ranking in Ranked PvP. These Leaderboards are not available outside of the game.

Arena Ticket rewards for Ranked PvP wins and losses are now based on the PvP Title of the individual who competed in the duel

New rewards are available to be purchased with Arena Tickets!

You can now place a PvP Kiosk in your home and access PvP & Derby from the comfort of your castle.

An Azteca themed Arena has been added to the mix!


===Hair Styles!===

We have long recognized that one of the most requested features for young Wizards is the ability to remove their hats, as well as to change their hair. Now you can do both with one simple item: a hair style!

 

Hair Styles can be purchased in the Crown SHOP in the Accessories Tab. You will be required to choose a color when you make the purchase as these Hair Styles cannot be dyed. Hair Styles can be stitched to hats and Hair Styles will also be available as rewards from bosses throughout the Spiral (in random colors)!

 

There are five styles to begin with:

The Housemartin - a short over the ear cut for both males and females

The Kestrel - a short above the shoulders cut with sweeping bangs for both female and male

The Martlet - same cut as the Kestrel, but with an added accessory for both male and female

The Owl - a medium length cut with sweeping bangs for both female and male

The Swan - a stylish up-do for female characters and a wavy short style for males

As we gauge the popularity of these Hair Styles, we may look to add new styles both with and without accessories.


===Unstitching===

Eloise has been busy learning how to Unstitch items that she has previously Stitched for you.

 

If you have items in your backpack that you've stitched, and you now wish to unstitch, simply visit Eloise in any world and select the 'Unstitch' option.

 

You must have room in your backpack for the new items or you will not be able to unstitch.

 

This service costs Crowns.

Psst! Eloise also has new clothing in Avalon and Zafaria!


===PvP Spectator Mode===

Check out the newly enhanced Spectator mode for PvP Duels! Now you can get a real sense of what your friends are doing, the spell that is being cast, the current health of all the participants and more! See for yourself!


===New House Available!===Are you up to the Crafting challenge? If you are a Master Artisan, head to Avalon to purchase the recipe for this new house!


Remember, if you currently have the maximum number of houses, you will need to purchase an Additional Castle Elixir before you can craft this item.


===New Furniture Sets Available!===

There's a new way to decorate, and that starts in the Crown SHOP! Look for the new Azteca themed Furniture Sets.

These sets work a little differently, in that you get all seven items each time you purchase a set. The first sets are Azteca Furniture Set 1, Azteca Furniture Set 2 and Azteca Furniture Set 3.


===Reshuffle Changes===

Reshuffle has changed. Each reshuffle card you have in your deck or sideboard can only be used once per duel and will not reshuffle back into your deck when cast.

This applies to regular Reshuffle that you have trained, and Reshuffle cards that come on items and pets.


===Miscellaneous Updates===

 

Sound Updates

Sounds for the Minigames have been improved - play a minigame in the Fairegrounds today and check it out!

Boris Tallstaff has had a bit of a voice change as he matures and takes on more responsibility in the Library.

 

Window Updates

You can now use your mouse scroll wheel to zoom in and out on preview windows such as your backpack preview, or shopping preview windows.

 

Badge Updates

Lady of the Falling Sky badge and Transcendent Crafter badge should no longer overlap.

 

Henchmen Updates

Shatter and Pierce have been removed from Henchmen Decks.

 

Housing Updates

Tribal Hangie housing item is now correctly listed as a Wall Hanging.

Players will no longer be forced to turn and face housing objects when you use them.

 

Item Updates

Additional Castle Space Elixir has been renamed to Additional Castle Elixir to better reflect that it unlocks a space for an additional Castle space in your inventory.

The Vindicator's Robe can now be correctly dyed orange.

The Recipe for Banded Boots was mislabeled as "High Road Striders" - this has been corrected.

The Chieftain's Crown now comes with the Ice Hound spell. All existing versions of this hat will upgrade to include this spell card.

Wyverns have their voice and their smoke back!

 

Shopping Updates

Pet snacks will now sell for the correct price when sold in large quantities

Rental Mounts will begin their timer on equip, instead of on purchase. This also means that Rental Mounts will not automatically equip on purchase.

 

Crafting Updates

Pierce Stanson will no longer automatically give you the recipe for "Seal of the 7 Seas", instead you must now purchase it from him, just as you have to purchase all other quest recipes.

 

Gardening Updates

Pixies will now disappear from a plant when it dies. Look for a new gardening spell with Roger the Shrubber in Avalon!

Chat Updates

Players who chat while in a Pet Minigame will no longer display as their pet name in the chat window

Act Now - This Leisurely Mount is Available for a Limited Time Only!

You can find this dawdling, drowsy, disinclined Slowpoke Sloth mount in the Crown Shop for only 1,750 Crowns!

 

You have to hurry though (unlike this mount at his cautious negative 40% speed!), he will only be available until Sunday, April 7th at 11:59pm US Central Time.



 

What Wizards are Saying aboutthe Slowpoke Sloth Mount!

 


"Sometimes a Wizard just needs an open road and the wind in her hair, and I get the feeling the Slowpoke Sloth is not the perfect mount!" - Natalie WildPants

 

 

"Everyday the Spiral is getting more crowded and traffic is a nightmare. Texting and driving? Oh yes, believe me - it's happening. That's why I love the Slowpoke Sloth mount. Finally, a mount that's safe for the Spiral!" - Lauren SparkleWeaver

 

 

"The Slowpoke Sloth mount makes a statement. Like, 'Hey - I can stop and smell the roses. I can appreciate the finer things in life.' It's perfect for the existential Wizard." - William SilverDreamer

 

Go Get the Slowpoke Sloth Mount - He's in the Crown Shop Now!
