Gold tips!

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!
