Last night was absolutely crazy! Test Realm came out of nowhere and I tried to cover all the new updates on the blog and on Twitter, but it turns out more things were yet to come.
Two new bundles are making their way to the Spiral!
The Olympian Bundle
Remember that post about a possible new world? It turns out that gear is actually from this brand new Bundle, which is based around a Roman theme.
Now we all know Bundles come out before major world releases, so I wouldn’t dismiss the possibility of Asgard or another world being around the corner, although this new bundle suggests that we might get to quest through Aquila in Wizard101 at some point.
The Olympian Bundle Gift Card is currently only available at GameStop stores in the United States and includes:
The Atlantean Bundle
The second bundle that’s in store for us is based on the lost underwater world of Atlantis! Yet again, this could be a potential world at some point. This bundle doesn’t come with a house, but you get a magnificent 2-person whale mount and a cool new pet!
The Atlantean Bundle Gift Card is currently only available at GameStop stores in the United States and includes:
To know more about these two bundles and for more pictures, check out Swordroll’s post!
PvP Tournaments are expensive, but you can get decks, gear, pets, mounts and even rare reagents like Amber as rewards! The best part is that you don’t have to be Number 1 to get the best rewards, as they seem to be completely random. In fact, a Wizard received the permanent Battle Gorilla mount below and he ranked 7th in the tourney!
As you all know, new content to the Wizard101 game is currently being tested. This upcoming update brought many new features and pets to the Spiral! See them for yourself here.
Now what caught my eye isn’t really the pets, but rather the new gear! Interestingly enough, this new gear isn’t available to the public yet. However, a KingsIsle worker has been spotted in Test Realm wearing two different sets of this brand new gear and a unveilled a new staffs as well!
If you saw the movie Thor, you’ll find the gear below quite familiar (the one on the right). Remember Heimdall, Gatekeeper of Asgard? They do look similar, right? Why would KingsIsle showcase a gear that isn’t available to its players, though? Personally, I believe it may be a hint at the long anticipated new world!
Asgard is a world in the Nordic Mythology, which is what inspired the world of Grizzleheim. Many players believe that the Coven will return and continue their plans to bring the Everwinter to the entire Spiral!
Could this be yet another expansion to Grizzleheim, like Wintertusk? Leave a comment below and let me know.
The Wizard101 Test Realm is back around and with it new features: PvP Tournaments and Musical Instruments!
Tournaments are an extension of the current Player vs Player system that allows you to match up and compete in a longer term matches that will get you special rewards! These Tournaments cost Crowns to enter and the rewards will reflect their cost. If you have a current Membership, you will pay 899 Crowns per Tournament. All others will pay 1499 Crowns per Tournament.
Find out more here.
Playable Musical Instruments
Find these new Playable Musical Instruments in the Crown Shop for Crowns and Gold. Place these furniture items in your house or dorm, and start playing! We’re starting with a four piece band: Bass Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drum Kit and Keyboards!
With these new Playable Musical Instruments you can:
Quest & Quest Helper Updates:
Map Updates: Wysteria’s World Map is back!
Badge Updates: Players can now display their current PvP badge.
The two most ancient forms of Magic were created billions of years ago, before the Spiral even existed, by the titans Chronos and Pseudeus. Fearing that Morganthe would get her hands on these long lost magical powers, these two titans travel to the Spiral, in hopes to find a Wizard strong enough to stop her. For that, they teach us the secrets of these two ancient magical arts.
This form of Magic deals with the manipulation of time and altering the natural course of events. Those wielding power in this school are known as chronomancers.
It is the use of Magic concerned with the mind, allowing its practitioners to boost their own mental power and that of others. Psychomancers are able to withstand fatal attacks for a short period of time and encourage their teammates to keep fighting, despite the odds.
What do you think of these new schools? I would love to get your feedback, especially on spells: are the pip costs okay? What should I change? Leave a comment below and let me know.
Please, keep in mind that these are just spell ideas! I do realize some of them may look overpowered, which is why I need your help to adjust them to game realism.
