Christmas in July 2017

Hey everyone!

I know it has been awhile since I have posted.  I've been SUPER busy and spending as much time with my kids as possible, since it is summer and they are both home all day.

Anyway, in the spiral summer means Christmas in July!  Yesterday, Kingsisle announced the return of Christmas in July to both Pirate101 and Wizard101 through Sunday, July 30th!

In Wizard101, be sure to check out the crowns shop for deals on winter and holiday themed packs, housing, seeds, pets, and mounts.  You can also find Felix Navidad in the Shopping District and stop by and fight Krampus!  Also, be sure to check out all the holiday decorations in the commons.

Pirates can also celebrate by enjoying decorations and opening gift boxes found around Skull Island. Awesome deals on holiday housing, companions, mounts and more can also be found in the Pirate101 crowns shop.

Both games are also offering a free holiday item if you redeem the codes "jinglejinglejuly" (Wizard101) and "jinglebellsummer" (Pirate101).  Be sure to redeem these codes before Sunday, July 30th to get your free item!  Merry Christmas in July!  See you soon!

Taking the Spiral by Storm: The Pyramid of the Sun

Hey everyone!

Wow, I am on a roll with the posts lately!  I hope you all aren't getting tired of reading them.  I have been so busy with questing and want to keep my posts up to date, so I don't get too far behind and forget what happened while questing.

In my last post, Autumn Rain was ready to enter Krokotopia, having finished all her quests in Wizard City.  Ambrose had discovered that Malistaire was going there to track down the Order of the Fang.  I entered Krokotopia at level 17.5 and by the time I finished all the side quests I could access, I was ready to begin the main story quests at level 19.5.

The Royal Hall
My first task was to track down and obelisk that Professor Winthrop had just uncovered and take rubbings so he could read the inscriptions. The inscriptions detailed the Krokonomicon, which was a powerful book of magic.  To find out more about the Krokonomicon and the Order of the Fang, I needed to get an ancient tablet back from Biti Nirini by defeating him. This led Professor Winthrop to believe the Order of the Fang is still around and hiding somewhere.

Chamber of Fire
I headed to the Chamber of Fire to help Professor Danforth get into the Palace, where there is a Map Room that would help find out the location of the Order of the Fang.  There was a stone key that had been split into 2 pieces.  The first half was easy to recover by digging it up.  To obtain the second half, I needed to defeat the Nirini Qurtermaster and take the key from him.

Palace of Fire
Inside the Palace of Fire, I needed to help hold back the Kroks from escaping the pyramid and then defeat the four Nirini leaders so that the barrier into the Throne Room and Map Room would be broken.

Throne Room of Fire
Once inside the Throne Room of Fire, I met up with Professor Winthrop in the Map Room.  He told me we needed a powerful magical artifact, the serpent staff, to locate the Order of the Fang.  I had to defeat Prince Manu Nirini to get the staff.  Then we needed the Eye of the Krok, which had been stolen by Krokenkahmen. I defeated him and then we were ready to locate the Order of the Fang.

A note about the above image: No, I do not have Stormzilla yet.  That is a treasure card I received as a drop.  It was a huge help with defeating Krokenkahmen though!  Anyway, we found out the Order of the Fang is hiding out on the Krokosphinx, so that's where I am headed next.  I am currently level 22.  Being ahead level-wise is extremely helpful, because I can get better gear and have trained more spells.

I should have my next post in a few days, so be sure to watch for it!  Until then, have fun and thanks for reading!

Taking the Spiral by Storm: Wizard City Side Areas

Hello magical people!

When I last posted, I had just finished defeating Lord Nightshade and received the spiral key to Krokotopia so I could track down Malistaire and the Order of the Fang.  However, before I entered the new world, I wanted to finish up all the side quests in Wizard City.  I did many as I was questing, but quite a few kept opening up.  This post won't talk about all of them, but I did want to make a post about the major side areas in Wizard City.

Crab Alley
Sohomer Sunblade asked me to see what was going on with the storm mill's batteries in Crab Alley.  I went down into Crab Alley and found out that King Thermidor has been acting weird. He had locked up his adviser Thomas Cromshell and the riverclaws were taking over.  After some investigating, I found out the current king as actually an impostor.  After many battles, I managed to track down King Thermidor, fix the storm batteries and save Crab Alley!

Colossus Boulevard
After that, I found out that Gobblers had taken over Colossus Boulevard.  After fighting a few, I went to talk to Professor Greyrose who suggested a potion made out of stinkweed.  The potion didn't work, so I went to talk to the Gobbler King. He wanted to take over Wizard City, so I went to talk to Ambrose to get more suggestions.  After going back and defeating a bunch of gobblers to test their strength, Ambrose suggested defeating the Gobbler Kings closest advisers, Barons Greebly and Rotunda.  After that, the Gobbler King relented, but Ambrose agreed to let them keep Colossus Boulevard.

Sunken City
The last area I went to complete was a dungeon, and it was a little different, because I did not do it solo.  Since this is a hard dungeon for the level I was (14ish), I decided to bring along my life wizard.  Edward Lifegem also came along on his new wizard, Suri Skullshard, so he could get more xp for her.

Anyway, we had to help Marla Stinger prove to Cyrus Drake that Grubb actually exists and wasnt just a myth.  We fought a couple bosses and did a tower before we actually discovered and fought Grubb.  Since we had a level 120 life wizard with us, this actually went very quickly, but it was still a lot of fun!

So I finished every single side quest in Wizard City, except the fishing stuff, mainly because I need more gold to buy fishing spells.  I will be starting Krokotopia at level 17.5, so I will be very far ahead.  That should help my questing go faster.  Anyway, thanks for reading and I will be back in a couple days with a post about the first part of Krokotopia.  Have fun!

Wizard City: History of Magic Book Locations

Hello young wizards!

While leveling Autumn Rain through Wizard City, I realized I have never made guides for the various book quests throughout the spiral.  This is something I always meant to do, so I figured why not start now?  I will be making a guide for each world that has one of these quests as my storm wizard, Autumn Rain, discovers them.  Here is the first, for Wizard City.

There are six books hidden throughout Wizard City, one in each of the Main areas/streets.  All of them are inside boss towers.  You can get the quest to find all the books from Boris Tallstaff in the Wizard City Library.

History of Life Magic
Unicorn Way, Lady Blackhope's Tower

History of Myth Magic
Cyclops Lane, Akilles' Tower

History of Storm Magic
Triton Avenue, The Harvest Lord Tower

History of Fire Magic
Firecat Alley, Fireglobe Theater

History of Death Magic
The Haunted Cave, Stormdrain Tower

History of Ice Magic
Colossus Boulevard, Gobblestone Castle

So those are the locations of all six of the History of Magic books.  It will probably be awhile before I have another one of these guides, since the next world that has one of these quests is Marleybone.  Anyway, I hope this helps for anyone who is trying to track these books down! Good luck and have fun! Thanks for reading!

Taking the Spiral by Storm: Cyclops Lane


Wow, I had a busy day questing yesterday!  I was online for about 10 hours finishing up all of Wizard City, including side quests.  It was so much fun to quest through these first areas again. Very nostalgic!  The first place I quested was Cyclops Lane.

When I arrived, I had to talk to Nolan Stormgate.  Apparently he decided I needed to prove myself to him by collecting a runed skull from the Dark Cave.  One fight with a haunted minion later, I reported back to him with the skull. Easy peasy.  Next, he told me there were some students missing.  My job was to fight some trolls to find information about where they may be.

After fighting the trolls, I obtained a letter from the cyclopes addressed to "M."  It said that the students had been kidnapped.  Nolan sent me to tell Professor Drake, who decided to send me to get his laundry.....and then sent me with a letter to Headmaster Ambrose saying I should be expelled! Luckily Ambrose didn't agree with him and came up with a plan to challenge General Akilles to get the students back.  First, I needed a pass from the warhorns.

It took several (about 12) tries and quiet a few fizzles, but I finally had the pass I needed.  Now it was time to face off against General Akilles.

After defeating Akilles, I back to Headmaster Ambrose, and he told me he thinks "M" is Malistaire.  He wants to find out what he is up to, but he needed some books from the library archives, and the key was being guarded by Foulgaze.  I headed out to defeat Foulgaze and get the key.

This battle was more difficult.  I actually had to do it twice, because I kept fizzling and died.  However, the second time I succeeded!  Next Ambrose sent me to Lord Nightshade, who he discovered was behind the attacks and working for Malisaire. My job was to defeat Nightshade and collect some books that had been stolen. Unlike the Foulgaze battle, this one went fairly smoothly since for once I didn't fizzle! Woohoo!

I brought the books back to Ambrose who told me to go to the waterfall behind the Rainbow Bridge.  There I found the missing Death school!  Anyway, Ambrose gave me the spiral door key for Krokotopia, where Malistaire was headed to find the Order of the Fang.  But before I went to Krokotopia, I had a few loose ends to tie up in Wizard City, which I will talk about in my next post.  Be sure to look for it at the end of the week!  Thanks for reading and have fun!

Taking the Spiral by Storm: Firecat Alley

Hello Young Wizards!

The last time I posted about Autumn Rain, she had just finished Triton Avenue.  Next up was Firecat Alley, where I talked to Private Quinn. He was worried because the fire elves he was supposed to meet with never showed up.

I headed into Firecat Alley and fought a bunch of fire elves.  Private Quinn was surprised when I reported back about how they were behaving.

He sent me to talk to Gretta, who said she could help out by making a potion.  I had to fight a bunch of magma men, skeletons and more elves to gather everything.  Lots and lots of fighting, but everything went well.....except the fizzling as always! :)

The last thing Gretta needed was hair from Bastilla Gravewynd.  This was a boss fight where I had to defeat Bastilla and a fire elf.  I took out the elf first and then attacked Bastilla with Storm Shark!  I also learned that Malistaire is behind cursing the elves as well.

Once Gretta made the potion, I had to give it to the fire elves.  This involved fighting them to get them to take the potion.  Then I had to fight their leader, Alican Swiftarrow.  This last battle wasn't too tough.  It was Alicane and a magma man.  I used lightning bats on the magma man and then storm shark on Alicane.  I think I had to use a couple wands after to completely defeat him, but it went smoothly.

So the fire elves are back to normal.  Next up is Cyclops Lane, which I will hopefully do this week and post about on Friday.  Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, but I got my first power pip while questing in Firecat Alley!  Hopefully I can get new gear soon that raises my accuracy and power pip chance.  That will make things go better, I think.  Anyway, until next time, have fun and thanks for reading! :)
