~Test Realm Problems~

Ok so a friend of mine from facebook Connor was having an issue with the test realm. He sent me a message saying:
"Hey Blaze. The Test Realm is wont let me log on. It says that to many people are on right now. Can you help me figure this out"

Yes Connor. I believe that this is because you haven't bought crowns in 30 days. Let me explain. This happens when a Wizard has lost his subscription or he has not bought crowns is the past 30 days. This used to happen to me but then I would buy crowns and be able to go on. Even if you buy the slightest amount of crowns such as $5 worth of crowns for 2,500 crowns, You would still be able to go on the Test Realm.

I hope this helps you out Connor. If you have any more problems contact me at my email: mywizard101site@gmail.com

~Tornado Destruction across the U.S.~

It has been a very sad week for the U.S. Many states have had countless tornados and tornado warnings. Between April 16-18 2011, there were 97 tornados!!! Thats insane and totally un-safe. Where I live, there was a tornado warning and my family and I had to take precautions in case we  got hit by a tornado. The worst tornado that happened was the Tuscaloosa Tornado. This tornado was an F5 tornado!!! Thats the worst of the worst! Our prayers are with everyone who has dealt with this treacherous disaster. Keep those in your mind because some people lost everything they had and owned. Bellow are some videos of the tornados and some aftermath:

~Mystery Artist Makes Wintertusk Soundtrack~

Yesterday it was revealed to the Wizard101 Spiral through facebook and the Wizard101 site that a secret famous music artist is creating the soudtrack for Wintertusk which is the continuation for Grizzleheim. Over the course of the next few weeks, Wizard101 will be giving clues to whom the artist is. The first clue is as follows:
"Hint #1 - "I’ve performed on Saturday Night Live and my initials are not J.B.!"


Who do you think this is? There have been many comments on the facebook page (691 comments to be exact) about who this "mystery" artist is. If you thought it was Justin Beiber.... You were wrong lol. The first hint says that his initials are NOT J.B. We will keep you posted on new hints etc. so comment on this post saying who you think the mystery artist is and I might (doubt it) give a prize to who guesses the mystery artists identity.

For more information click on the link bellow which will take you to the official page with this info:

WAZZZ UPPP WIZZY AMIGOS!!!  A few days a go I met up with my amazing friends Tristan and Kieran from Stormy Skies. We hung out on the test realm in Grizzleheim and did some questing together.
They are the some amazing people who are really awesome and fun to hang out with. They run a blog about wizard101 just like me and it is pretty cool! You should go check it out! They have info on their pets which are pretty cool I must add xD If you want to check it out which you should, go to the following link:

Here is a pic me Tristan and Kieran took


~Goodbye Friendly~

A sad incident has occurred in  the world of blogging and Wizards world wide! It breaks my heart to say this  but... Friendly has stopped blogging ;( It is soooooo sad to see him go. He was an inspiration to me and to all the bloggers of wizard101. He was the first ever blogger about wizard101 and he has taught all of us many life lessons... He was my hero/model because he inspired me to start my 2 wizard101 sites and he was the one who helped me get started. He would talk about me on his site and he was a HUGE part of my blogging carer.  He will forever be in our memories and he will ALWAYS be an inspiration to bloggers and wizards world wide.

~Grizzleheim Questing~

Ok so like I really want my Ice level 58 pet BUT in order to receive the quest, you must have finished the "Nordrilund Exposure" quest NOT THE "Blackbird in a Cage" quest. I have to correct that on the other posts. Anyways I have been questing today and I have gotten all the way through Frostholm. It is a pretty fun dungeon but it is back to back convos with these 2 bears who are 20-30 steps away from each other.  I wish it was more convenient and less back to back talking. The dungeon is super easy if you are a legendary wizard and it is even easier if you have another legendary wizard helping you!  


Baldur says:
 "Go to Grizzleheim and start your questing young wizard.  If you want to receive you level 58 pet you MUST complete the  "Nordrilund Exposure"  quest. NOT THE "Blackbird in a Cage" quest. Now go you wizard and quest your heart out!"


Give it up for Baldur Goldpaws ladies and gentleman! xD

~Test Realm cont.~

First off...  I would like to send a special shout out to Alvin! HEY ALVIN! I CAN'T WAIT EITHER!!! (inside joke hehe)

Anyways I kinda sorta forgot to include this in the Test Realm Update because I didn't know about it till my bro called me over and said "DUDE! A TEMPEST HAT IS IN BAZAAR!!!" lol Gotta love-em brothers xD

So lucky him he bought the ONLY Tempest hat lol. He might have gotten that but I got a limited edition.... *Pauses for dramatic effect* UNICORN HAT!!! lol It is pretty sweet plus I got a pair of boots that give ice attack and also attack for all schools xD   There are also some new robes that give a dispel card with sweet stats.

Here is where you would find these items in Bazaar:
Hats - level 52-54
Robes - level 52-56
Boots - level 52-54

 Unicorn Hat

 Multi-Stats Boots (same stats but for different schools)

Gives Life accuracy spell to all

The Story of Grizzleheim Continues with Wintertusk!
Word of your deeds in Grizzleheim has reached the ears of the greatest of the ravens, none other than Grandmother Raven herself. She's calling you to rescue her from the Coven....

You will begin your journey in Wintertusk after you have completed the "Everwinter" quest in Grizzleheim. When you begin your quest to rescue Grandmother Raven, you will be sent to Hrundle Fjord, the main area in Wintertusk.

Hrundle Fjord is a small walled Viking-style village, primarily inhabited by bear warriors and traders. There is a small dock outside where merchants and warriors enter the area. It’s remote and cold, perpetually covered in snow, and it’s among the older places in Grizzleheim. The surrounding areas are full of wild creatures and barbarians.

Wintertusk contains 5 main areas: Hrundle Fjord, Austrilund, Vestrilund, Sudrilund and the areas of Nordrilund & Nastrond are bundled together. Each of these areas are Premium areas that will require a Membership to enter, or individual areas will be available to be purchased with Crowns when Wintertusk arrives in the Live Game. Each area will be 1995 crowns.




New Pets!
New pets can be obtained through a quest given to you by your school Professor!
 You must be at least level 58 and have completed the Grizzleheim quest
 "Nordrilund Exposure" to obtain this quest.

Roaming Mounts
Set your Mounts free! Just like pets, mounts can now be placed in a house and allowed to roam about, and yes that includes the brooms and wings!
New Pets!
New pets can be obtained through a quest given to you by your school Professor! You must be at least level 58and have completed the Grizzleheim quest "Blackbird in a Cage" to obtain this quest.


New Spells for All Schools!
New spells are available for players at level 35 and 55. If you are above the level requirements, and have completed the required quests listed below, speak to Baldur Goldpaws in Northguard.

This is a departure from how spells are usually trained, so please follow the instructions you are given.

The spells for players who are a minimum of level 35 will be a new utility spell inline with the other spells players are used to seeing from their class. For example, Storm Players will gain access to a new Stormblade that allows them to dump power pips to make their next spell even more powerful. Nobody beats in a Storm Wizard when it comes to pure damage right?

Players who are a minimum of level 35 and who have completed the Grizzleheim quest "Blackbird in a Cage" will be invited to speak to Baldur Goldpaws in Northguard who will give you a quest named "I Know a Guy...". 

The spells for players who are a minimum of level 55 spell will be an upgrade of an existing spell that makes it even more useful to high level players. For Fire Wizards this means that Link will now be upgraded to Power Link; a much more effective version of the old spell that allows Fire Wizards to heal themselves considerably better while dropping a big damage over time spell on their opponents.

Players who are a minimum of level 55 and who have completed the Grizzleheim quest "Thief of Spells" will be invited to speak to Baldur Goldpaws in Northguard who will give you the quest "The Spell Trade".

A Return to Crab Alley


Return to Crab Alley!
If you are level 12 or higher, speak to Sohomer Sunblade in Triton Avenue for a special assignment called "Trouble Underfoot". Remember Sohomer is at the top of the set of teleporters behind Blad Raveneye. This assignment will lead you to Crab Alley where you will learn what became of the residents after their brush with fame. Be sure to pick up your rockstar outfit while you're there.

AND

Are you Legendary enough?
A new dungeon for high level Wizards in Crab Alley called the Waterworks! Blad Raveneye needs help with an emergency in underwater Crab Alley! Something strange is going on in the river depths, threatening the whole street! Venture into dark, unknown tunnels beneath Triton Avenue and set things right! Solve complicated puzzles, battle vicious underwater minions, duel tricksy bosses, and stop a sinister plot!

Crab Alley is no longer a free to play area, and will require Membership or Crowns when it opens in the Live Game. This area will cost 750.

Crown Shop Updates


Crown Shop Updates
The Crown Shop has some updates that should make it easier for you to find the item you are looking for in a faster manner.
  1. More tabs! More tabs for all the items you want to shop for make it easier for you to see everything available.
  2. Search! Look in the upper right corner for a search function to help you find an item by name.
  3. Saved Preferences! If you prefer to view in list mode these preferences will be saved so that next time you open the Crown Shop, you'll see what you want to see.
  4. Combat Tab! In combat, when you open the Crown Shop, the Henchman tab will be the tab that appears. This should make choosing a Henchman faster and easier.

Wand Stitching


Wand Stitching
Eloise has been improving her skills and she can now take the stats of one casting implement (wand, sword, etc) and place it onto the appearance of another casting implement (wand, sword etc.) Just like stitching clothing, follow her instructions carefully to ensure you choose the right items for the right effects! This transaction costs Crowns.

Privacy Update

Hidden from Friends
A new feature in the Options Menu is the ability to set yourself to be Hidden from Friends. If you set this option, your friends panel will not be accessible and you will not appear as being online to your friends. To turn this option off, you can simply click on your friends panel to become available again.
