A Little Taste of Wysteria

I made it to the test realm for a little while, and let me tell you something.  I LOVE WYSTERIA!  It's pretty awesome!  Unfortunately, I am not able to spend too much time there.  That little thing called life keeps calling me to do stuff.  But I did manage to quest a bit, look around and take some cool pictures.  Here is a sneak peek at what I found out.

Pigswick Academy
This is the main area of Wysteria and the rival school.  There is a tournament hall, headmistress office, student dormitory, shops, and 7 schools.

The Schools
There are 7 schools that seem to coincide with the Ravenwood schools.  They are:
  • Earth (Life)
  • Spirit (Death)
  • Chaos (Myth)
  • Tempest (Storm)
  • Frost (Ice)
  • Ember (Fire)
  • Equilibrium (Balance)
I'm not sure if there will be new spells to learn or not.  We shall see.

Prospector Zeke Quest
The new Prospector Zeke quest is to find "The Wallflowers."  There are 4 of them hidden throughout Wysteria.  And notice that Kingsisle kept up with the trend and used another band name.  I will have to update my blog post that can be found here.

Book Quest
There is also a quest to find "books," which is given to you by the librarian. There is either four or five to find total.  And they are called "Pigswick Papers."

Pegasus Place
This is the first area you are sent to battle and quest.  There are Hobgoblins and Wood Gobblins to battle. I will be completely honest with you.  I don't know what the storyline is, because I almost never pay attention to it.  I keep telling myself that I should, but it has yet to happen.
There is an area with tons of pegasuses  pegasi  flying horses. Anyway, the flying horses are pretty cool.  Like I said earlier, I didnt get to quest too much, but I did quest a little.  I got as far as the Crystal Tower.  Isn't it a pretty building?  The boss in the tower was pretty easy.  He had less than 2000 health and his minion had less than 1000.  Sorry, I don't remember the exact amounts, but I killed them both with one critical sandstorm.

Tanglewood Way
I didn't get to do much in this area.  It is closed until you get far enough with your questing.  I did port to  a friend and have a look around though.  It looks cool.  There are 2 types of guys to fight, Barkskin Treants and Green Men.  I saw one boss tower, but there may be more.  I'm not sure.  Anyway, here are some pictures.

And that's all I had time to really see.  But it looks awesome!   I can't wait until it comes out on the live realm and I can quest all the way through.  Have fun!

Very nice pictures! I think we are only some of the very few people who like this new world. Everyone I have spoken says that there is way too much cheating.

Thanks! :) And wow, really? I think the cheating is what makes it fun. It gives a new challenge. In my opinion anyway.
