news

OK, I am trying to work on a new template and it is not working out.
The template you see is a work in progress.
I wish i could go back to my old template but it did not save it :-(, I do not like the new Template Designer, the old one is much better.
If you know how I can get my old template back please tell me!

Magically,

Wizard101 Maintenance
As part of our ongoing effort to improve Wizard101, we are performing ongoing maintenance on the game.
Today only, Paying Players* will be able to log in to the game, and Free to Play players will have intermittent access. All players may experience a delay the first time they log a character in to the world today. This is expected and there's no need to submit a bug about this delay.

Thank you for your patience while we diligently continue to improve Wizard101 for all our players.
*paying players include those who are currently subscribed, or have purchased $10 in Crowns or more in the last 30 days.

Ravenwood Bulletin - August 2010


03 August 2010 - Volume XXIV

The month of August is upon us, and I await any Wizards who would brave the sands of Krokotopia to challenge me, Krokopatra. No doubt you've come for the Krokonomicon...oh sorry where are my manners! I'm supposed to be introducing this month's Newsletter, not taunting young Wizards! 

This month we have the start of a special feature called the Producer's Letter where the Wizard101 Producer talks directly to the players. Harold Argleston has another book of the month for you to read, there's a quick tutorial on Training points and some awesome news about our fansite Wizard101 Central! 

Read all the details below and I'll be ready for you when you come to challenge me in Krokotopia!

Wizard101 Producer's Letter


A new feature here at Wizard101 is the Producer's Letter. Each month, the Wizard101 Producer Leah Ruben will address the players, talk about what's going on behind the scenes and hopefully give our players a sneak peek of what's to come.


Many of you have already interacted with her on the Wizard101 Message Boards, for Leah Ruben is also known as Dalia Falmea! In this month's letter, Leah introduces herself, talks about what it's like to create new worlds in Wizard101, and even has a little sneak peek of Celestia for you!

Harold Argleston's Book of the Month

This is the August 2010 installment of my Book of the Month Club. These books have been suggested by a fellow Librarian from Earth, her name is Kit Ward-Crixell and she is a librarian in New Braunfels, Texas, USA.



This time our chosen book is a book about Dogs. Little Lions, Bull Baiters, and Hunting Hounds by Jeff Crosby – This nonfiction book, illustrated with paintings, is more than a “which dog is right for you” guidebook. It describes why people created the hunting, herding, working and companion dog breeds and how their various talents make them the dogs they are today. There are some slightly violent scenes of traditional activities like bull-baiting.

Look for this book in your school or local library and enjoy reading, young Wizards!

Training Points


We get asked about Training Points quite often, so I thought I'd put a reminder in the Newsletter about Training Points.


Training Points are used to learn spells from outside your school of focus. In order to learn higher level spells of a school, you have to first learn the lower level spells. Just go to a teacher, and look at the spells you can learn from them.

You will receive one training point every 4 levels till 20. This means you will receive them at level 4, 8, 12, 16 and 20. After level 20, you will receive one training point every 5 levels. You can also receive training points through certain quests.

If you make a mistake, visit Mr Lincoln in Golem Court. He will let you buy your Training Points back with Crowns, and you will lose those spells. You must be at least level 12 to buy back your Training Points and this transaction costs Crowns.

Online Safety Tips

We at KingsIsle Entertainment take your privacy and safety very seriously. We've put together a page of rules, guidelines and discussion points about how to keep safe online, whether you're making a purchase, playing the game, interacting with others, or just surfing the net.



Be a good sport and protect yourself & others online.

Party in the Test Realm!


Party in the Test Realm!
To improve the performance of Wizard101 for all our players, we've been updating our login servers to speed up the time it takes to log in to the game. 

To test these updates, we need lots of people to log in to the Test Realm! 

Nothing has been added or changed in the game, and as always the characters you have on the Test Realm may not match the characters you have on the Live Realm - but remember nothing you do in Test carries back to the Live Realm, they're completely separate. 

So login, log out, log back in to the Test Realm and really stress out our new login servers to the fullest. With your help, we'll be able to make logging in faster for everyone!

Sorry I have not been on for a long time, busy IRL stuff, sick grandparents, broken WI-FI (fixed now) and lot of other stuff. Is there anything new I have missed? I will try to be on more often
