Halloween Run 2018 Recap

Hey everyone!

Wowza! Yesterday was the day of the Halloween Run and it was so much fun!  You can see a recap in White Tiger's video below.

We kicked off the stream at 12pm CDT and we already had a few areas of people at that time.  After some time dancing, we headed off to farm Lord Nightshade and Nosferabbit for a bit.
After the farming, we had lots of other activities such as Hide and Seek and a Skeletal Pirate Raid.  We also brought everyone Trick or Treating around Wizard City where everyone present received codes for skeleton keys, crowns, mega snack pack, and a jack o'lantern pet!  It was so much fun and I think everyone that was there would agree with me! But even after all that, we still had one more trick up our sleeves.  Everyone received a rare 1-Day Bone Dragon mount courtesy of Kingsisle!

We ran all the way through Wizard City and then it was time for the after parties! There were three houses.  One was a maze by Sarah Skystrider, which was aMAZEing! The other two were my house and Gabby's house, where we had housing games, pvp, and contests.  Gabby even had a dance off which looked like a lot of fun, and I had Pumpkin Tic-tac-toe! :)

I really think this was one of our best events ever! I had so much fun with everyone from the community and I can't wait until our next event!  Speaking of which.....we announce the dates for the Turkey Run and Santa Run at the end of the stream! You can see those dates below.  See you soon!

The Great Detective Bundle Available at Gamestop

Hey everyone!

Wizard101 has released a new bundle called the Great Detective bundle!  This bundle is available at Gamestop and for $29.  It is "Sherlock" themed and includes lots of great items.

1.  Hot Air Balloon Ride - This is a super awesome housing item that allows you to go in the basket of the balloon and get a bird's-eye view of your house.

2.  Gyrocycle Mount - This mount is currently one of my favorites in the game.  You are essentially riding around in a giant wheel! It looks really cool and is lots of fun to ride around in.  Kingsisle did a great job on this mount!

3. Baskerville Hound Pet - I haven't trained this pet yet, so I'm not sure what stats it gives, but it definitely looks awesome!  For those of you wondering, it is a myth pet and gives 2 stun block cards.

4.  Sherlock's Outfit and Eyeglass- Your wizard can now look like a detective with this gear!  The default color is red, but it can be dyed, which is nice.  There are 13 different tiers that you can choose from when you redeem it.

5.  5,000 Crowns or 1-Month Membership

This is a really fun-themed bundle and a great value at $29.  My favorite parts of the bundle are the balloon ride and the mount.  Those alone make the bundle worth it to me, but everything in it is really awesome! As I said above, it is available at Gamestop, but if your local store doesn't have it, you can get them online at the Gamestop website.  We are also giving one away for our Halloween Run 2018 Video Guide Contest so you can enter that before Sunday, October 28th for a chance to win! Just click the link for the rules.  As always, thanks for reading and see you soon!

Community Corner Post #1

Hello everyone!

A couple weeks ago, I made a Community Corner post asking you all what baby animal you would like to see added to Animal Cove.  A couple of you answered and here's what you had to say:

"We need the hedgehog as a pet from the Animal Cove puzzles, complete with its cute little noises!" -Iridan Willowglen

"Snow owl or a mystic garden owl." -Janet Alley

As for me, now that Animal Cove has added the mythical animals, I would love to see a baby dragon or a baby pegasus added.  I think that would be super awesome! The baby dragon could be all cute and harmless, but think he is fierce and if he tries to breathe fire, puffs of smoke could come out of his mouth instead.

Anyway, thanks to those of you who participated!  I will be posting more topics soon, possibly even today! Keep your answers coming! It's never too late to reply to any topic.  See you soon!

Stream Recap - October 19th

Hello everyone!

Time for another stream recap post.  On Sunday we fought Medulla with help from @CTheDeathWizard.  We died A LOT, but we did manage to make it through.  I once again forgot to take pictures, but you can see our struggles by clicking here: Medulla Stream

Wizard101 Group Questing
Tuesday was another group questing stream in Wizard101 and this time we all transformed into Krokomummies! We were working our way through the Krokosphinx and we got about halfway done with it, maybe a bit further.  This time I did remember to take some screenshots, thanks to @Iridian_Willow reminding me! Thank you, Iridian! You can see the quest we left off at down below.  If you would like to visit the stream, you can see it here: Wizard101 Group Questing
 Next Stream: Tuesday, October 23rd @ 6pm CDT / 7pm EDT
Realm: Kelvin
Quest: Gladiator Games

Pirate101 Group Questing
Thursday was another group questing stream in Pirate101 and we made it to a new skyway! We finished Volcano and recruited Ratbeard to our crew and then headed off to Puerto Mico in the Tradewinds Skyway.  Unfortunately throughout this stream Discord was messing up, so I wasn't able to talk as much at the end of the stream, but it was still a fun stream.  You can see where we left off below and watch the stream here: Pirate101 Group Questing
Next Stream: Thursday, October 25th @ 6pm CDT / 7pm EDT
Realm: One-Eyed Jack
Quest: Rumble in the Jungle (At Sacrifice Cave)

So yeah, I am definitely having a lot of fun questing through both games with all of you and I hope you guys are too! Remember that everyone is welcome to join us, even if you have a higher level wizard or pirate and want to just come to hang out and help us.  And if you are a lower level than us and need help catching up, just let us know! New friends are always welcome! I hope to see you next week as we continue our adventures.  Also, we will be having an NXP party in Pirate101 on Sunday (tomorrow) so join us for that as well! See you soon!

Stream Recap - October 12. 2018

Hey Everyone!

Sunday night's stream was focused on doing a few different low-level dungeons.  We started out with the Sunken City, Helping Marla prove to Cyrus that Grubb really is real.  There were four of us in this dungeon, so we breezed through it with no problem, although we did get caught a few times.  However, before we knew it, we were at Grubb and we were able to defeat him within a few rounds!
After completing Sunken City, we headed to the Haunted Cave to fight the Nosferabbit.  This dungeon had quite a few fights, but we were able to make it through without any issues.  This is probably because we had a couple higher levels tagging along. Thanks, you guys!  SO yeah, the Veggies and Rabbit didn't stand a chance against us!
After we defeated the Nosferabbit, we were messing around with the transformations a bit and took the picture below as manders.  Then we headed to Jack's house to do the Winterbane Gauntlet, which neither Ed or I had ever done before.  It was fun, even though Edward and I both died.  Luckily we could flee and run back into the battle.  We were on our level 20 characters, so it was good that we had Jack and Talon with us to help out! We never would have made it by ourselves! And we got to level up to level 21 at the end of the dungeon, so that was awesome!  I think this stream was my favorite Sunday night stream so far, so thank you all for coming out and making it so much fun!

On Tuesday we started Krokotopia with our new wizards! We actually made it through all of the main quests in the pyramid of fire.  There are also a bunch of side quests that everyone can catch up on this week.  Anyway, we had to defeat a bunch of Nirini bosses, but it wasn't too difficult with the group.  I think everyone had fun questing through this area...More fun than questing through Crab Alley anyway! Much fewer instances of getting caught.  We left off right when we got to Krokosphinx, so that's where we will be starting on Tuesday.
Next Stream: Tuesday, October 16th
Quest: Fandango
Realm: Kelvin

As you may have noticed, I forgot to take screenshots once again. Oh well.  I will remember one of these days :D  One thing we did decide on during the stream is that we will be questing through Grizzleheim and Wysteria as a group, so if you would like to participate in that, be sure to level up with side quests!

Thursday was exciting because it was the first week in awhile we weren't questing through the Traitor's Cave quests!  We got to go to Jonah Town and talk to the Frogfather.  He sent us to the Presidio, where we collected some rare spices for him.  We also earned a new companion (I got the crab companion) as well as a new ship!
After that, the Frogfather gave us information about where we could find the map to get Gunn's Gold.  That led us to Ratbeard, but he escaped! So we ended up chasing him to Bounty Island, which is a fun little dungeon to do.  We found out that Ratbeard brought the gold to the Volcano, so that's where we left off for next week.
Next Stream: Thursday, October 18th
Quest: Gunn's Gold
Realm: One-Eyed Jack

Anyway, lots of fun stuff going on!  I hope we will see you all during our streams this coming week! Next week I will be trying a different format for these posts, since making one big post on Friday doesn't seem to be working for me.  Instead, look for posts on Wednesdays and Fridays. Until then, have fun questing!

Stream Recap - October 5, 2018

Hey guys!

I know this is late again.  I think I have a plan for this coming week so it will be easier for me to start getting the posts out on Fridays.  Anyway, here is what happened last week in our streams.

During the first half of the stream, we helped some people with Lost Pages.  We didn't get too far with it but made a little progress.  Then we hopped over to Pirate101 and helped some of the new Pirates catch up with the last dungeon we left off at, the Marie Celestia.  It was a pretty fun time!

We quested a lot on Tuesday and we were able to finish up all of Wizard City, except Sunken City! This means we fought Nightshade and then ventured into Crab Ally where we rescued King Thermidor.

Crab Ally is usually fun for me, but this past stream, while I had fun questing with everyone, I kept getting caught and was getting extremely frustrated. However, we ended up making it through and then it was finally time to go to Krokotopia! So long, Wizard City and your beautiful new graphics!

Next Stream: Tuesday, October 9th
Quest: Krokotopia
Realm: Kelvin

So we did it! We finally finished up the Traitor's Cave quests! While they are fun and Kingsisle did a great job on them, they definitely lasted a long time and I think the entire group is ready to move on. Next up is Jonah Town!  That means we will be doing the quest to get our Presidio companions soon.  I can't wait! Getting new companions is always exciting!

Next Stream: Thursday, October 11th
Quest: The Most Dangerous Catch
Realm: One-Eyed Jack

So that's it for this week's update.  I am still trying to figure out the best way to make these posts so I can add more info as well as be able to post on Fridays.  Like I said, I think I have a plan so we will see if it makes any difference this week.  Until then, I hope to see you all in tonight's stream for some Halloween questing, which will be a ton of fun!

An Exciting Announcement

Hey Everyone!

I am super excited to announce that this site was added to the list of official Wizard101 fansites today!  As excited as I am, I think I am still in a state of shock as I write this though!  I feel honored to be included amongst so many other talented site owners! You can click the image below for links to all of them.  Be sure to check them out!

So you may be wondering what this means for the site.  As far as content goes, I already had some plans to update a few things as well as some brand new surprises which I am currently working on.  Those things will not change.  I have also tried to be an inclusive site, working with Edward Lifegem on our streams and events to provide fun activities for everyone to enjoy.  That is something that will also continue and I hope we can continue to come up with new ways to bring the community together.

I need to give a huge shout out to the new Community Manager, Mathew aka Sparck, for accepting my site! I also need to give a huge thanks to Edward Lifegem, who was actually my inspiration for creating my blog in the first place and has been telling me for years that one day I would be an official Wizard101 fansite.  Thanks for never giving up on me!  Seriously, thank you to everyone who has supported my site and stuck by me for the past 7 years! Your support means the world to me!

Anyway, here's to many more years of fun, events, guides, and randomness!  See you all around! :)

Announcing Community Corner!

Hey Everyone!

I am super excited to share a new project with all of you.  I have decided to call it Community Corner.  Keep reading to find out more about this brand new section of my blog, made especially for all of you!

In the past, many people have requested that I add some sort of forum to this site.  However, I don't have the resources, time, or knowledge for something like that, since I am a one-person operation with a lot of things going on in real life.  However, the idea of giving you guys a space to have your own ideas and opinions be heard has been intriguing to me for a while now.  During my Relaunch Contest, a few people suggested allowing guest posts.  I thought this was a great idea, so here we are.

Once or twice per month, depending on the response from all of you, I will be posting a new topic under the new Community Corner section of the site. The link to this new section can be found in the menu bar. I will announce on social media when this happens, with frequent reminders.  Then the rest is up to you guys! Email your thoughts to me at and I will repost them in a blog post, giving you guys the credit.  All the topics and links to the associated posts will be listed on the Community Corner page so people can easily access them.

I will be providing topics for both Wizard101, Pirate101, and Animal Cove. I will also be accepting suggestions for topics ideas from all of you at times as well.  This is meant to be an interactive experience for all of you, a way for your voices to be heard. The first topic has already been posted on the Community Corner page, so let's hear your thoughts! If you are interested in submitting your thoughts and ideas, please review the guidelines first.

That's it! I hope you all enjoy this new way of sharing your insights about the games.  I can't wait to read and share what you guys have to say! See you soon!

Stream Recap - September 28, 2018

Hello, Wizards and Pirates and Wizrates! :D

So I know.....This post is a day late.  I apologize for that, but yesterday was super crazy with homework and driving my kids all over the universe.  Anyway, this past week we were back to having three streams so yay for that!  Although, as I make this post, I realize I need to take more pictures throughout the streams.  I guess I get too distracted by talking and having fun.  Maybe you guys could spam the stream chat every few minutes and tell me to take some? Or spam my twitter feed :D  Seriously though, as time goes by, I hope to get better about remembering so I can make these posts more interesting with pics.  Anyway, on to the recaps!

On Sunday, we decided to get into Pirate101 since we had to cancel 2 of our weekly questing streams in a row.  Since neither of us had much experience with ship PvP, we decided to try it out.  We had a few people join us and it was really a lot of fun! I even let Edward sink my ship with his raft.  We also tried to farm the ship that was in the PvP area, but it takes forever to respawn!  Please lower the respawn time, Kingsisle!  Either way, it was a lot of fun!  After a while doing ship PvP, Jack Nightingale invited us back to his house and I PvPed against Edward. I might have won, but I think he let me :P  The shot above is in Jack's house in a glitch he made.  It was awesome! Thanks for letting us use your house, Jack! And thanks to everyone who joined us!

We are almost done with Wizard City!  On Tuesday we finished up Cyclops Lane, Colossus Blvd, and fought Foulgaze! Questing on here with this group has been so much more fun that I thought it would be and we even had a few new people join in!  Next week we are planning on finishing up Wizard City by fighting Nightshade, venturing into Crab Ally, and if we have time, doing a run through the Sunken City. You need to be level 12 to access Crab Ally, so if you would like to join us, be sure to catch up.  We will be helping some people level up with Wizard City Side quests this Sunday during our stream, so be sure to join us if you need help!

Quest: The Dark of Nightshade
Realm: Kelvin
Next Stream: Tuesday, October 2. 2018

We got to quest on Pirate101 again this week! YAY! We are still working on the Traitor's Cave quests, but we should be finishing them up next week.  I think these quests are the longest part of questing through Skull Island, mostly because it is a lot of long dungeons.  It was still fun though! I just wish Pirate101 would add friend chat channels like they have on Wizard101, because it would make it easier for the group to communicate. Anyway, we finished up Manny's quest and are almost done with Moe's quest.  I think one group finished up the last dungeon for Moe's quest, but the rest of us still need to go through the Marie Celestia dungeon.  Then we just have Jack's quest left!  After that, it will be off to Jonah Town!  If you need to catch up, this is where we left off:

Quest: Off the Hook
Realm: One-Eyed Jack
Next Stream: Thursday, October 4, 2018

Again, we will be helping some people during Sunday's stream if anyone needs help catching up.  Pirate101 help will be during the second hour of streaming, so around 8pm EDT.  Each week we seem to gain a few more people which makes it more and more fun. so I hope to see you in either game this coming week!  Until then, have a good weekend!

Stream Recap - September 21, 2018

Hey everyone!

As promised on Twitter, I am going to start recapping our streams each week on Fridays.  All the streams will be included in one post, so if you are interested in reading about what we were up to, or if you are looking for updates on our new wizard and pirate questing, this is the place to come! If you would like to watch the streams, just click the date and it will bring you to the video for that day. So without further ado, onto the recaps for the past week!

A few days before this stream, Pirate101 announced that the skeleton key boss update was hitting the live realm.  To celebrate, Edward and I decided to try out the bosses and invited our level 70 pirate friends to join us.  We had about 7 of us, so we split up into a group of 4 and a group of 3.  I had done the Old Scratch boss with Edward during the test realm, so I knew what to expect with that one.  However, we hadn't done any of the others.

During the stream, we got to run through all four: Old Scratch, Captain Blood, Brass Monkey, and Duck of Death. I was surprised to find out that even though you only need one key for the Brass Monkey battle per every 4 people, it is a solo fight.  I actually had the wrong companions for this one and died.  I am going to go back and try it again sometime though.  The rest of the battles went smoothly with a group of four, and I had a lot of fun! I look forward to trying all of these bosses again sometime. Thanks to everyone who came out and help us with these!

This was the new wizard questing day! Yay! We started off finishing up Triton Ave, where we had left off the previous week.  After defeating the Harvest Lord, we decided to head to Firecat Ally. This meant defeating lots of fire elves and magma men.  We finally made it to Alicane and defeated him with no problem! Then we decided to help a few people defeat Kraken.
Questing with this group of wizards is so much fun! We have tons of laughs and it's always a great time. The cool part is that each week we gain a few more people, so if you want to join us, it isn't too late! We join up every Tuesday evening and quest through the main quest, leaving most side quests for solo play throughout the week. The information about where we left off is below.  Thanks to everyone who comes out and makes this stream a ton of fun!
Quest: A Giant Problem (Cyclopes Lane)
Realm: Kelvin
Next Stream: Tuesday, September 25th @ 6pm CDT/7pm EDT

Thursday, September 20, 2018
Unfortunately, we had to cancel this stream, but it would have been our new pirate questing stream.  If you are interested in joining us for this one, we quest on Thursday evenings.  More info is below, but first a special announcement.  During next week's Pirate101 stream, we will be giving away a one-month Pirate101 membership to one person who quests with us.  All you have to do is show up with a new pirate and quest with us, and I will be entering everyone who does into a raffle.  This is another really fun group to quest with and my son even joins us in the stream, so I hope to see you there!
Quest: Lizard City (Traitor's Cave)
Realm: One-Eyed Jack
Next Stream: Thursday, September 27th @ 6pm CDT/7pm EDT

So that's it for this week's streaming update! I hope this new format is easier for everyone to keep track of everything.  I know it's easier for me.  I even added a new label called "Stream Updates" so you can just click that and easily find everything.  Anyway, I hope to see you guys at our future streams, and if you are ever curious about what we may be streaming, you can see the upcoming schedule on my Streaming Page.  Thanks for reading and see you soon!

New Wizard Questing Part 1

Hey there Wizards!

Last week, Edward Lifegem and I started a new weekly stream where we created new wizards with all of you to quest through the game.  This stream is every Tuesday evening from 7pm-9pm EDT.

Last Tuesday was our first day of questing on these wizards.  I made a fire wizard named Autumn Flame and Edward made a myth wizard named Edward Gem.  We started right in Ambrose's office to get the first quest and then we headed to Unicorn way.  We made it all the way through that area and started in on Triton Avenue, where we left off for the night.  You can see more details about exactly where below the picture.

Who's in Charge (Collect Lumina Crystals)

Kraken Realm


We have decided to do most side quests on our own time, but we will be doing some as we quest through, especially quests to areas like Aquila and Crab Ally where we can farm for new gear.  If you would like to join us this week, it isn't too late! Simply make a wizard and quest to the point mentioned above and then meet up with us tomorrow.  I hope to see you there because last week was a lot of fun! P.S. If you do join in, remind me to take some better screenshots this week! haha

New Pirate101 Updates and a Streaming Announcement

Ahoy pirates!

Guess what happened this morning! Pirate101 released a new update to the live game! I am so excited about this one if you can't tell from all the exclamation points!!!!!!!!! Okay, I will stop shouting at you all now, but seriously I am so excited.  I always love new Pirate101 content and while this update isn't a storyline update, it does add some cool new features.  Let's take a look at them.

Old Scratch Promotion - I love the companion promotion quests and this one is super cool and spooky!  Once you are level 70 and promote Old Scratch to level 70, you can do a promotion quest for him! And this particular update actually leads into the next one.

Skeleton Key Bosses - If you play Wizard101, you may already be familiar with skeleton key bosses, but they are a new addition to Pirate101.  You access the first one (Old Scratch) during Old Scratch's promotion quest. After that, there are three more as well, Captain Blood, Brass Monkey, and Duck of Death.  These bosses are TOUGH, so be prepared!

Balloon Run Recap

Hey everyone!

As you might know, Wizard101's 10th birthday is this month.  Many of the fansites are having events and contests to celebrate.  I hosted a Balloon Run with Edward Lifegem from Around the Spiral this past Sunday.  It was a ton of fun and we streamed the entire event.

We started off just hanging out in Ravenwood and talking with everyone.  Many people showed up early and it was fun interacting.  Kingsisle was awesome and provided us with a code for 1-Day balloon mounts for everyone to use during the event. There may be some mounts left on this code, so try it out if you would like your own 1-Day Balloon mount.  The code is: Balloons1DaySOTS.

Once everyone had their mounts, we took a few pictures and then it was time to.....well not run, but float!  We went around Ravenwood 5 times and then around the Commons 5 times to signify 10 years of Wizard101.

After the run, it was time for hide and seek, where 3 winners each won a permanent balloon mount!  Then it was time to port to my Celestial Observatory for the after party.

The main part of the after party was the scavenger hunt, where people had to find 5 specific items and email screenshots of them to us.  The winner of that contest was Isaiah Hexrider.  Congrats Isaiah! The scavenger hunt ended up being more difficult than we had planned and took a lot longer than expected, but I still think people had fun with it.  After that, we had a few housing games for Party Corgi pets and also another mini hide and seek for Decaversary packs.

I would like to thank everyone who showed up!  I think this was a really fun event and I had a lot of fun hanging out with everyone!  Congrats to all the winners of the contests and thank you to Kingsisle for providing all the codes for the rewards!
