Meet Autumn Winterbreeze!

I realized that I never actually introduced either of my 2 wizards.  And since this month I am working on my ice wizard, I figured I would introduce her first.  As you probably figured out already, her name is Autumn Winterbreeze. This is the third wizard I made (the second was a life one I no longer have).

I haven't done too much with this character, other than questing.  She is finished every world, except Celestia.  In Celestia she has progressed as far as the Science Center.  I have completed all of the crafting quests on this character and got the Grandmaster Artisan badge, but I haven't done PVP or Pet Derby yet.  And only a little bit of gardening.  As of this post, she is only a Neophyte Gardener (level 2).

Anyway, here is an overview of her stats.
As you can see, I really need to craft and farm for better gear.  That is going to be my goal when I am finished questing.

You also may have noticed that I have 8 training points left.  I haven't decided if I should save them for possible future spells or spend them on getting the life spells through Satyr.  This is what I have gotten for spells so far.

Death - All spells until feint and infection.
Balance - Elemental shields, elemental traps, and reshuffle.
Star - Fortify, amplify, and vengeance
Sun - Strong, giant, monstrous and gargantuan.

I do have a life mastery amulet that I switch between my 2 characters, I just havent decided if I should use my training points or keep buying treasure cards.  Any input on this is appreciated. :)

Other than that, I have 2 pets I switch between on this character, my starfish and my wyvern.  I am currently working on leveling my wyvern, and when that is done I may work on getting my starfish to epic as well.  Here are my pets' current stats.

Well that's all for today.  I may do a post like this in the future for my main character, Autumn Dreamwalker, as well.  Thanks for reading, and don't forget to enter my giveaway for 2 teleporters!  See you!

Happy 3rd Birthday Wizard101!

Today is Wizard101's birthday, as you may have noticed from all the decorations in Wizard City! The game has been around for 3 years today. 

I have only been playing for a year, but I have seen how far the game has come since then.  I can't imagine what it was like when it first came out!  And I definitely cannot wait to see what updates and changes the next year brings to the spiral.

To celebrate, Kingsisle is giving every player a birthday present.  Redeem the code "3rdBday" by September 5th to receive your gift!

Happy Birthday Wizard101!  And keep up the great work Kingsisle!

New Mounts and Houses!

Kingsisle released an awesome update today.  Included are 2 new mounts and 2 new houses.

The mounts are both pegasi. The black one is called the Nightflame Pegasus and the white one is called the Skyracer Pegasus.  Both are permanent mounts and sell for 12,500 crowns each.  I really like both of them, but I think I may get the Skyracer for my ice wizard eventually.

Then there are the houses.  These houses are very cool. Kingsisle did a great job on them. The first is the Sunken Palace.  It is very cool.  It reminds me of a house in the middle of The Grotto in Celestia. It costs 10,000 crowns or 100,000 gold.

The other house is the Wizard's Watchtower.  This is another awesome house with a whirlpool and even a dragon guarding a hoard of gold! It costs 7,500 crowns or 75,000 gold.

You can click on them in the crown shop and preview them to see the inside.  Great update Kingsisle! See you next time! :)

Question: Where Can You Get Celestian Shields?

Someone posted a question about where to find Celestian Shields.  These are housing items dropped from Curuin Charmtooth in District of the Stars.  If you are lucky enough, you may be able to find them in the bazaar as well.  Anyway, you can see more information in my blog post here.  I hope this helps! Thanks for reading!

September W101 Goals

Hey fellow wizards!  Today is September 1st, which means it's almost time for autumn (not me, the season).  It's my favorite time of year, hence the wizarding name Autumn.

Anyway, I saw an idea on Diana Wildheart's blog, Guardian Theurgist's Journal, which I have decided to use, with her permission.  At the beginning of each month I am going to post some goals of things I want to accomplish in W101.  I figure this should keep me from getting bored and wondering what to do.

I have decided that during the month of September I am going to spend time working on my ice wizard, Autumn Winterbreeze.  These are the things I hope to have done by September 30th.
  1. Complete Celestia main and side quests.  I am currently in the Scienece Center, but I have some sides I have to go back and finish.
  2. Complete Wysteria main and side quests.
  3. Complete Tower of Helephant.
  4. Complete Warehouse.
  5. Complete Waterworks.
  6. Train Wyvern pet to epic.
  7. Start gardening and work towards grandmaster gardener.
I figure these things will keep me pretty busy, but I have a couple other things I would like to do, if I have time.
  1. Farm for level 60 gear in Waterworks.
  2. Work on getting badges.
  3. Craft furniture for my Celestial Observatory.
So as you can see, I should be spending most of my time on my ice character.  If you don't have me added on there, you may not see me too much.  If you do have me added and hear me say I am bored, just send me a link to this post :P  See you next time and have fun!
