I return, just in time for Wysteria and new housing items.

Hiya everyone, yes I am basically back. Right in time to test out Wysteria! A new world in the Test Realm based on Hogwarts!!! Here is the update notes.

Welcome to Wysteria

Wysteria was once a trade post and pleasant enough small town in the Wizard City cluster, not too far away but of little consequence in the overall scheme of things, until a magical incident occurred that caused a crawling vine to grow and completely overrun the town.

Players who are level 25 or higher should speak to Merle Ambrose in his tower. He will offer you the quest "To the Registrar".

Pigswick Academy; Pigswick Academy is located at the heart of Wysteria and is a rival school to Ravenwood.

Inside the walls of this city a very special Magic tournament is about to take place and in your journey to solve the mystery involving the theft of an important school treasure it will be up to you to defend the honor and good name of Ravenwood School of Magical Arts!

Pegasus Place: Normally home to a host of pegasus aerie, this street has been overrun by a wave of goblins and hobgoblins, fierce and horrible creatures who escaped to Wysteria by hitching a ride with some unwitting students. They have blocked off the street, run amok and caused considerable damage to buildings, and are storming around, menacing students and residents alike.

Tanglewood Way: Tanglewood Way is ruled by the forces of nature. The gates are completely entangled with vines and seemingly are impassible, and two guards stand outside it keeping people away. Near the gate entrance is a crack in the wall that looks large enough for a young Wizard to sneak through...

Also not mentioned in the updates notes, the Tower of the Helephant has been added to the game. It is basically another really hard dungeon, just like Waterworks (but harder!)

And for those curious minds, here are all the other known updates...

                                  Miscellaneous Updates

Friends Panel Updates
  1. Players will now see a confirmation window appear when they ignore a friend on their friends list.
Combat Updates
  1. School Symbols for creatures of the Spiral will now appear on the 2d Combat Menu. This will help with those really tall ones!
  2. School Symbols for Players will also appear on the 2d Combat Menu, but not in PvP.
  3. Players who are defeated in an area they have purchased with Crowns, but who have not purchased the common area of that world, will be teleported to Wizard City Commons upon defeat or flee.
Quest Updates
  1. The Wizard City Quest called "Triton Avenue" can no longer be declined.
  2. The Wizard City Quest called "Unicorn's Folly" can no longer be declined.
  3. The Wizard City Quest called "Ghost Hunters" can no longer be declined.
  4. The Wizard City Quest called "Fairies Wear Boots" can no longer be declined.
  5. Level 52 and Celestia quest "Door to the Stars" is now required before the player is able to accept "The Special", "Me & My Arrow" and "Time for Tea" from Ogden Peake.
  6. New characters will be required to complete Triton Avenue before they are offered entry into Firecat Alley and Cyclops Lane.
Stat Updates
  1. Pet Damage Talents will now be properly reflected on the Wizard's Character Sheet

Shopping Updates

Other Updates
  1. Players should no longer repeatedly appear to be downloading 'Angrus Hollowsoul" when in the Commons
  2. Some words have been removed from the Text Chat Dictionary due to their inappropriate use - remember 'swearing' around the filter is a very fast way to find yourself with only Menu Chat as an option. 

Most people have not noticed, but there is some new housing items in the Crown Shop!!! Including the one and only, ccccchhhhheeeeesssseee!!!! You can go to to the Housing Section of the Crown Shop and buy yourself some new housing. They are available for crowns and gold. I'm going to get me a pound of cheese from the Crown Shop! Speaking of cheese.

So much news that it can't fit in my header.

So I'm sorry not posting recently. I'm exhausted from this weekend from doing so much stuff none Wizard101 related stuff. Now, I have absolutely nothing to do for a few weeks. So now, I will be able to post daily! :)
So now I'll be able to work on this blog a bit more and twitter more often! So now for some more news. My Fire Beetle Mr. Rudy, is now being called the Fail Beetle. Why? Just look at these talents. Health Gift and Tower Shield (the one that gives a card.) That is pretty bad for a pet with a 70 pedigree. So I asked my friend Finnigan Moon to hatch with me because his Astral Judge has with Cloud o' bugs, Balance Blade, and Pain-Bringer. He got a Fire Beetle with a 73 pedigree, and I got an Astral Judge with a 69 pedigree. Well, at least I spread the Fire Beetle. Anyways, my Astral Judge hatches in a little bit. I guess I'll train just for the talents he had. So now that brings me to my Black Panther. My Panther has less than 6 hours left. I don't want to lose her! Luckily, I have a lot more Panthers in my gift box! :) Hmm should I redeem a Panther to put in my house, hmm. I'm guessing that should be a new poll! I know, I know, this post is short for so much news. Would you rather read a huge post or a short post though? Anyways, Thanks for reading!!!!

New Housing Items and a Review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, and my Fire Beetle!

Hey guys. Sorry for not posting for the poast 3 days. I've been busier than ever. So anyways, some of you noticed that we have new housing items have come to the spiral!!! These items are available for Crowns AND Gold! Check out the Housing part of the Crown Shop to check them out!!! Note: Do not buy the Great Moodha Statue because it is tiny. Everything else is legit as far as I know.

So I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in 3D on Wednesday! I remember eating Gummy Life Savers (I admit it, should have gone with Almond Joys.) I finished them 10 minutes into the movie even though I told myself not to eat them all. Anyways, after the movie I went to the best BBQ place ever! The ribs are amazing, fries are amazing, the portions are amazing! After I went home with a headach, so now here is the review.

Likes: I loved how the music was perfect fo every scene. I admit it, I was a little teary in parts of the movie, mostly when people died. The music was a great effect to the movie.The editing was amazing it all seemed so realistic, and it didn't felt like I wasn't just sitting in a chair watching a screen. It felt like I was right there watching Harry battle Voldemort. I loved how the made the scenery too. The scenery really looked like bits of stones and stuff knocked down. I give credit to the actors too. They were great!  Anyways, now are my dislikes.

Dislikes: The only thing I didn't like about this movie is that it wasn't as much as the book was as I would've liked it. It is still a great movie, but it could have been a little more like the book.

Overall Rating: 9.0/10

Anyways now to talk about Fire Beetles. Yup thats right, I got mine yesterday! Thank you Autumn Rain! Right now I am training it and hoping for May Cast Balance Blade. Welcome to the world Mister Rudy!

I'll twitter his talents when he levels. Cya later!!!!

Fire Beetle Beetle Mix discovered, Secret Hybrid Project, and 100 Views

So yesterday, Kelsey Fireheart discovered the Fire Beetle combination. Here is a hint. First Pet: Meow. Second Pet: Beetle sounds. You guessed it, it is Fire Cat and Storm/Rain Beetle (just as a suspected.) Now, it is very rare to get a Fire Beetle from a Fire Cat and Storm/Rain Beetle. Why? You know how the Pet Egg and Nightmare were very hard to get hybrids? It is the same thing. If you want to mix with a Fire Beetle, here is a link
to a page where someone is willing to hatch with anyone.

Deathshard from Wizard101 Central has started a project called " Secret Hybrid Project." Their goal in short is to discover hybrids we have not yet discovered. Here is a link to it.

Have some of you noticed, I have over 100 views!!! Yes I know, you might say "Why are you so happy, it is only 100 views." Well, behind those tiny numbers, are 100 people! It is a lot to me, so I'm happy! Thanks to everyone who has seen my blog. Thanks!

P.S. Forgot to tell you, but my links aren't working right now. So just copy the URLs and paste them into the browser. Then press enter. You should be taken to the page you want to be at. I'll try to fix it as soon as possible.
