So, 2 days ago the final day of  "13 Days Of Wizard" For that day, there is a new pet! The Snowball pet is available in the crown shop for 3,400 crowns, but only for a limited time. I like it, But I don't think it's worth 3,400 crowns. Check it out!!

12 Days of Wizard Day 11, 12 and... 13?

Again, sorry I missed the past couple 12 Days of Wizards, I've been very busy.
For 2 days ago, the 11th, they had a new gardening plant, the boon tree! One thing that's of notice, is due to it's special nature, it will not reseed at elder. For yesterday's, the 12th day, select mounts were 50% off! You could save on the following mounts, Nightflame Pegasus, Skyracer Pegasus, Seraph Wings, Bat Wings, SwiftShadow Wings and the enchanted broom. But, evidently there is a 13th day, today? So hopefully there's something REALLY good today! I'll try to post about it as news rolls out, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to.

Keep it? Remove it? I don't know.

Hi all,

I was thinking, should I keep my blog or remove it? I haven't really had much time to post on it, and have found nothing to post about. If I did keep it, I would be able to post about 2 to 3 posts a week, but now as consistent as I could before. So, comment what you think, should I keep my blog or delete it?

Stacking blades and traps

Hi all,

I decided to put together a guide on how to stack blades and traps. Hope this helps anyone who doesn't know how to do it!

With blades, you don't have many options for stacking, there's only 2 ways to do it.
The first is to use the Elemental/Spirit Blades. Let's say your a fire wizard, to stack 2 blades, you would have to put on a regular fire blade, and a elemental blade, both will break and increase damage.
Note: If you put 2 fire blades on yourself only one will break, the other one will remain docile until your next fire spell. This can be done with any school except balance. Sorry balance wizards!

The second way to do it is to use treasure cards, for an example if you put a fire blade, and then a treasure card fire blade, both will break, you can also stack three for certain schools, fire for one can, you can put a fire blade on, then a treasure card +35% fire blade, and then a treasure card +40% fire blade, all three will break. This will work with any treasures that are different.

With traps, there are 3 ways to stack traps.
First, is pretty much the same as the blades, you can use the Elemental/Spirit traps to stack as explained above. You can also use amulets that have trap cards on them to stack.
Note: As the same with the blades, putting 2 traps on an enemy of the same kind will not work.

Second is pretty much the same as blades as well. You can use treasure cards with regular traps.

Third is a totally new way. You can stack traps with prisms. It is best when you are fighting a monster of your opposite school so you get a boost! The way trap stacking works, is the last one put on will go first.
Let me explain this in a little more depth. The last one goes first applies to shields as well.

For your convenience, I'm going to make a two different paragraphs on The last one goes first (TLOGF)

TLOGF With Shields:
This mainly applies to when you are trying to use prisms on enemies of your school, Let's say you are fire, and you are fighting a fire enemy (Boss or mob). Probably, you will prism, but after you do, the mob/boss puts up an ice shield. Remember, the last one goes first, so when you cast your efreet (or any fire attack spell), the ice shield will try to go, but your spell is fire, so the ice shield does nothing, the your fir epirsm breaks, and your fire spell becomes ice, but the ice shield has already had it's chance to go, but failed because your spell was fire at the time it tried to break. But, if the ice shield was put on, and then the fire prism, the fire prism would go first, making your spell ice, then the ice shield would break, reducing damage because your spell is ice after the prism.

TLOGF With Traps:
This is similar to using shields, We'll use another example of you being a fire wizard, and fighting a enemy. Remember The last one goes first, that is especially important in stacking traps. Let's say you are going to attack the enemy you are fighting and you want to stack traps, the problem is, for using this one, you will need ice traps. So, you have a ice trap, a ice amulet trap, a fire trap, a fire prism and a fire treasure card trap. Because the last one goes first you will have to put on the ice traps first, put the two ice traps on the enemy, then the prism, then the two fire traps. Because the last one goes first, the fire trap will go first because you put them on last, then your fire prism will break, then your ice traps, and will do maximum damage.

New wizard video of the week!

If you guys ask me, I would say it's WAY overdue for a new Wizard101 video. Oh yeah, WAY overdue. So, here it is!

This Wizard video of the week is one I made, yes PyromanerJonathan (myself) made it. Enjoy!



I've been waiting 3 years for the day I would be the highest level possible, and it's finally here!!!!!

Another interesting subject I would like to discuss would be my blogs views. Okay, so 2 weeks turned into a month. I wouldn't say I have been ignoring my blog, I just wasn't posting. But, somehow, I left with 3,000 views, didn't post at all, and came back with 5,000 views? June has been my biggest month with 1,830 views and counting. I'm not sure how all this happened, but, I would like to say sorry for leaving for so long. I will be back to posting again!

It's Vacation Time!

Hey Guys,

I'm afraid I won't be able to monitor my blog for 2 weeks from today. I'm sorry. Jason will still be posting I think, but there will be no further updates to the blog itself for 2 weeks. I will put up a new wizard video of the week today. But that'll be the only one for 2 weeks.

I'm sorry everybody. I look forward to coming back in 2 weeks!

Sunday, May 1, 2011


WOOOOOOO!!! We hit 3000 views! WOOT! I never though I make it this far, thank you to all my followers!

test realm up

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.

Roaming Mounts and New Pets!

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 58 and have completed the Grizzleheim quest "Blackbird in a Cage" to obtain this quest.

Wizard video of the week!

O.K.! With all the craziness going on with mount week and Jason's contest, I think I've pulled together something to do. I will begin with doing something called "Wizard video of the week" Basically, every week I will put up a wizarding video! Now, here is the $1,000,000 issue with this. Blogger will not allow me to embed it too large. SO, here's the deal, it will have to be tiny, so I will recommend watching them in full screen. New videos will be put up every Sunday.

IF I FIND TROUBLES WITH DOING THIS, I will take it down. So no promises ;)

This weeks video... Wizard weekly episode 1. If you are not familiar with wizard weekly it's a video segment put on by Fawne on central. So enjoy watching it!

Don't forget to comment

Poll closed! Countdown over!! Me and my wizarding life!

The poll is closed! We got 18 votes! Okay, so it's not as good as 20, but hey, it was pretty close. The option which won was... OTHER!!! Wait... other? Uh... What other is there? Well I guess it could be gardening since I lamely forgot to put that in. Second place was quest and third place was farming. If you selected other, please tell me what other YOUR wizard likes to do! You can comment, find me on the fan sites or email me at I'd love to hear what else you like to do!

The mysterious countdown is over! I guessed wrong... It wasn't nothing, it was a pet rock! A pet rock... with eyes. CRREEPPYY! When I saw it I was thinking "OH MY GOSH! I HAVE TO GET THIS!" But I don't think I will. I don't have enough crowns and it would cause me to spend an extra $5 which I don't want to do. 

So, remember that storm wizard I was talking about earlier in my blogs life? He's level 17 now. Not all to high but still pretty good. I tried hatching for a nightmare, guess what I got? A unicorn! I was so mad! The mix is helephant with unicorn right? Well I hope. Or that was 17,000 gold out the window.

Well, I think that's all I have to say today. Cya all!

Bad move KI, real bad move.

I just want to say, taking away caps in text chat was a really bad move KI. I feel so ridiculous saying a name or I because I can't cap it. For the people who are not old enough to have open chat but have text chat and would like to capitalize properly. It's not going to stop people from saying cass or stew paid. And eventually, people will find a way around it even without capitalization. They should have just taken away chat all together if they really wanted to keep it this safe.

This is my opinion on this update. I;d love to hear yours, you can Email me at

Housing Review: Island Getaway

After my first review of the new Celestia houses. I decided to do another one about the Island Getaway.

This house can be purchased for 100,000 gold or 10,000 crowns.

When you enter the Island Getaway, you will come to a beach, with a path heading to the house, and 2 huts on the right side.

Head up the instructed path to find a nice field of dark grass, go to the right to find a little river to enjoy a nice bath in :)
Go down that river, and you should see a water fall.

Go into the waterfall to find a cave!

In that cave there will be a tunnel, go into it!

There, there will be a nice small room, perfect for meditating!

Down the right, you will come into another tunnel, go to the right and you will see a pedestal!

Not sure why they put a pedestal there, eh, cool concept!

Go the other way and you will find a waterfall!

But wait, turn around, and see the home security system!

Falling boulder! (When it falls on you, it just go through you, but we won't tell any burglars that)
Go up and to the right and go into the house!

It's a wood based house with nice decorations. Across the hall there is another room that looks exactly the same. Go straight, then left and come into the main room!

Nothing really special in there.

2 more things you should know about this house

1. The spiral door, is kinda destroyed :(


Why I am so crazy about that? I'm a crazy person ;)

Overall I would rate it a 10/10
I just think it's a great house!

Housing Review: Celestial Observatory

I have taken the time to do a housing review on the Celestial Observatory house.
This house can be crafted by master and grandmaster artisans only. The recipe can be acquired from the housing turtle in The Celestia Base Camp.

When you enter the Celestial Observatory you will be confronted with debris floating around, no it won't hurt you! Continue down the path you are directed to, this is what it should look like:

Yes, the Celestial Observatory is the second house to have a dueling circle!!!

On your left and right there is a little "Hut" so to speak.
The left one,

Has a moon shape pool in it, perfect for nice spacey (Pun intended) baths!

The right one,


Is more of a meeting area, it has, well, nothing in side.
Now to move into the inside of the house.

This inside is amazing with great astral designs. The first floor is basic with a sun mosaic on the ground .

Move upstairs one level using the teleporter you should find this:

This room is just a starter with small stars on the ground. The thing I love about this house is every floor has a different tile pattern representing that astral school.

Move on to the second floor, this one is the star floor.
It has some great star patterns on the ground, this one is my favorite!

Next up is the sun floor:

  This one is basically the same, just with different markings on the ground

Last and not least, the moon floor/observatory!

This one is the last floor which is the observatory, take a look up!

Overall, I would rate this house a 9/10.

Why not a 10/10 you ask? Because there is really no place to put a garden that would make sense, I mean, a garden in space?

Test Realm Open!

The test realm just opened this morning! I haven't got on it yet, but the biggest news, Celestia housing!

This is the Celestial Observatory. It's the one you have to craft, see the turtle in Celestia to get the recipe! (And if I know KI and Celestia crafting, there's probably gonna be a whole lot of sunstone) This one looks SO cool! I can't wait to check it out sometime.

This is The Island Gateway, The second one, which you can purchase for gold or crowns. This one (Too me) doesn't look as good as the observatory, but that's just me.

You can read the update notes here!

I would like to say, when I sent the call out for gold getting suggestions, I Got 2!

First one comes from Alia Lotuspetal:

  "Well, I'm actually pretty rich (120,000 gold!) and my way of getting gold is farming Oyotomi the Defiler in the Village of Sorrow in Mooshu. He drops some neat stuff too! (fire symbol boots, storm symbol hat, life symbol hat, balance symbol robe, a sword, etc.) And as a matter of fact, within about 2 hours, I earned 50,000 gold from him!

If that doesn't work, farming the Ravens will get you a lot of gold as well, but they take a little longer. I hope my tips were useful, and good luck earning gold!

~The LotusPetal"

Thanks Alia! I'll be sure to try Oyotomi the Defiler in Mooshu! I could sure use those boots ;)

Second one is from Mason Ironhorn who says:

"I have a few tips...

1. If you have any random low level clothes in your bank, sell em! This wi;ll probally get you a lot of gold. Also, celstia clothes that dont boost your school will get you a lot of gold.

2. Farm farm farm! It is a great way to get gold and school gear you may need. You can check out one of Ironhawks guides on Centrel, find a boss you want to farm for an item you need, and then battle battle battle! Sell all the items you wont use at the bazaar for extra money!

3. This on e is more of a trick then a tip and only gets you a little gold, but still works. create a new character. Skip the tutorial. Go to your dorm. Put everything in your dorm into your shared bank. Go back to the character you need gold on. Sell all house items. Rinse and repeat.

Those are my tips, hope they're helpful!

Mason Ironhorn"

Nice tips Mason! The only thing wrong is that the third one doesn't work. They changed it so that all starter furniture is no trade, but thanks anyway! :-)

Poor? Nah, how about super poor!

So I said earlier I was embarrassed because I only had 14,000 gold. Nah, why stick with poor? How about SUPER POOR? Huh? Like it? I now have only 2,000 gold! Yeah I know, I can't buy anything. (Unless it's a novice robe) Gold tips please!

Okay, Now I need gold.

I have successfully done every thing you can do in wizard101 to waste gold! Bought a new house, Hatched a new pet, Bought gear I never use, Bought TONS of reagents and Housing items (Which I never use), all in all, I went from 100,000 gold to 14,000 gold, I have never been this low since I started the game, I am embarrassed!

Please send me tips on how to make more gold, currently I am just farming the Sharks in Celestia as farms, and it's actually been working out pretty well.

Poll is leaving!

Hey guys, just wanted to alert you that the "Should I garden?" poll results will be leaving the site TOMORROW! So make sure to look at it if you haven't!

Open Chat problem resovled.

So, as you all probably know, there was an open chat update which got a lot of people angry. I, for one, really don't have an opinion on this since I don't use open chat. But apparently a lot of people did.
Here's the response Merle Ambrose made:

"To the Wizard101 Community,

Recently we made a change to our chat system that left a number of people in our community frustrated -- or some cases, even angry. The feedback has been signficant, and I wanted to write you a quick note to let you know that, as always, we are listening.

First off, a quick apology. We did a very poor job of notifying you, our customer community, that this change was coming. To make matters worse, we completely failed to explain the reasons behind this decision. Please accept our apology for that, and allow me the opportunity to provide that explanation now.

A large portion of our effort here at KingsIsle is spent polishing our game, and all the related subsystems. It may not be apparent on the outside, but maintaining a virtual world with 15 million players can be pretty challenging. Operational systems, customer support, registration and billing, the website -- there are hundreds of individual pieces that have to fit together perfectly to keep Wizard101 running all day, every day. Our team is constantly changing these systems, improving them, polishing them, trying to make them better for you.

Sometimes when we make changes, we also make mistakes. A few weeks ago, we found that we had made an error: the explanation for how our 18+ Chat feature worked, as described on the website, didn't match the rules set that turned this Chat Filter off. The result was that a number of players -- all of them over 18 years of age, mind you -- were able to keep Open Chat working, even when their subscription expired.

Oops. Our original intention was to restrict this type of chat to active members only. We thought requiring a current, active credit card would be the safest, easiest way to ensure that 18+ chat remained exactly that -- a restricted feature meant only for our more mature players.

When we found that error, we put it on the schedule, and a short time later it was "fixed." The issue, of course, is that a number of our customers -- like those who have migrated from a subscription account to buying areas with crowns -- found themselves suddenly unable to use a feature they had grown accustomed to. This wasn't a problem before; in fact, when we added 18+ Chat, game cards were a pretty small part of our business. Now we sell them in almost fifty thousand retail locations.

Our intention was to fix an issue with our chat system -- not to alienate a portion of our community! We value our pay-as-you-go customers just as much as our monthly subscribers -- but by making this change, it certainly didn't look that way.

So the question now is: how do we resolve this going forward?

After much discussion, we have decided to move the system back to the way it was before -- and fix the messaging to accurately reflect this. As before, we will still require the use of a credit card to verify that an account holder is 18 or older -- this is not just the right thing to do, it is actually a legal requirement. This is not open to debate. But we can drop the restriction that you must have an active subscription. Once an account is verified as being over 18 years old, that account will remain verified, whether they continue to pay us or not.

We're going to make this change immediately, and I sincerely hope that this will address the situation to everyone's satisfaction. That said, player safety is (and must be) our first priority, and we will continue to review and revise our policies and rules to keep Wizard101 both safe and appropriate for all ages . We reserve the right to change things as we deem necessary, even if those changes are unpopular.

Please understand that we consider our player community to be our most important asset... We are listening, and we do care about your opinions. Thank you again for playing, and I hope to see you in Ravenwood.

ps. one final note about feedback. We promise to continue listening... but only to opinions that are stated in a courteous, respectful manner. Profanity, insults or threats towards our customer support team absolutely will not be tolerated. Those who have acted in a discourteous or disrepectful manner -- in game, on our forums, or via email -- can expect their accounts to be immediately sanctioned or banned.

Woot Ding 50!


Yes, after nearly 2 years of leveling and questing, I finally did it!

Why 2 years you ask? Because, I joined in Feb. 2009, didn't subscribe until Oct. 2009, and took a 9 month break from Feb. 2010 to late Sept. 2010, Then my subscription ran out. I re-subscribed about a month after that

I've been questing in Celestia a bit, maybe a little more then a bit. I'm SO close to 51

For an update on the poll, 10 votes so far, it's been at 10 votes for the past couple days. 4 days left!

I have 6 followers currently, thanks!

That's right, I have mastered Malistare!

A couple nights ago, I ran Malistare with Jennifer, Andrew Skullbreaker and Jason Thundershield.

For an update on grand gear drops, I got the Myth Athame, Storm Ring and athame and the Life ring. Luckily, I got the fire grand robe as a drop :P felt pretty lucky about that.

I adventured in Celestia a little bit, Not as much as you would thing, only 3 or 4 quests, I want to hit grandmaster before I do too much in Celestia (I'm currently Lvl 49)

I'm SO exicted!

Thanks Jennifer, Andrew Skullbreaker and Jason Thundershield!
