The Final Count Down Quest, Malistaire Run

Hello Fellow Wizards,
I recently got the final count down quest, about five days ago,
three days ago I took on this quest with help from the famous Robert Dragonheart a.k.a The Rogue Sorcerer and one other friend that had to leave (and his friend did one battle with us), it was so fun and acutely somewhat easy, we did it in less then 2 hours! I will post the photos later but do the story now. I acutely started alone then my other friend came and the way we avoided the first two battles (maybe more, cant remember (just mobs, not required)) is he would go in to the battle, I would walk around and he would ho view a crowns house then port to me. (The Book is around this area) we would do that for all the un-needed battles. when we got to the Gurtok Demons Robert got there (we where setting up the friends code stuff), we did the fire one first then the ice (that's when my other friend's friend got there). I got some GM stuff, I think storm and myth stuff, cant remember. then we had to do the crystal thing, we avoided all those bosses that you have to pass to get to on of the crystals. we opened the door,  then got to the part with the two battles to open the other door to get to Malistaire. They used to be timed and you would have to split up and finish the battle around the same time to open the door, they took that out of the game. we split up anyway to save time, me any my friend went together and Robert went alone, me and my friend finished first then he had to leave, Robert was not done yet so I went to help him, He had like five weaknesses (lol), we finished and the door opened, after that there is on more battle before you fight Malistaire, a whole bunch of creepy death ghosts things with big, um, *butts*.  We battled those, after that you get to listen to Malistaire, Cyrus and Silvia talk, its really cool, they are talking in chat bubbles, just like us!! I got photo of there whole conversation, will post later. when they finish talking, Malistaire get mad and makes Cyrus and Silvia disappear then you get to battle Malistaire and some more of those big butt death ghosts. Robert died like four times (LOL) I had to heal him every time, I have a pet that has Dryad and I had some Fairy Treasure cards, I did not die at all. onces we finally got rid of the ghosts and a little of mail's health with some AoE we where using. then we started to blade and trap, I had a fire trap treasure card, elemental trap, regaler fire trap, regaler fire blade, elemental blade and balance blade. I used a LOT of tower shields, when I was ready to use my dragon I cast a treasure card that add +25% critical, I did not have any critical so I only had 25%, when I casted my dragon I was taking so many screen shots that I did not see what I did (ugh) but Robert said I did around 5,000 with a critical!! Fire Dragon is a AoE, I wish I used another spell, I might have done a close one hit, (I have photos, will post soon!) but I am happy because I got a critical!only at 25% too! after the battle, I got some nice drops (will post photos later) but I did not get my Grandmaster robe, Malistaire turns into a ghost and he has a short talk with Silvia, then they both disappear. Cyrus comes back says some stuff (will post photos later) then he opens a portal to the headmasters office. I did not go in the portal right away, I had to go get the rose and I wanted to try to get my robe from Malistaire's chest, I spent 1,700 but I did get my robe and myth, storm and ice GM robes. I also got three level 45 anthems (I am using one, giving the rest to alts), I am lucky I got my GM robe, Its to get what you want from those chests. I actualy did not level up do Grandmaster, after I did the Malistaire run I went to go finish the rose quest and some other side quests. my next post will be about hitting Grandmaster.

I would like to say thank you to Robert Dragonheart helping me, with out him I would still have that quest right now!! Please take the time to visit his AWESOME blog!! The Rogue Sorcerer


See you in the Spiral!

Crowns Player

Hello Fellow Wizards!
As I said in my sneak peak post I am now a CROWNS PLAYER!
I LOVE IT! five reasons it works out for me:  I cant go on all the time because my life is so busy, I don't race to get in wizard 101 when new updates come out, I don't use the test realm, I don't do PvP (probably will later) *expect practices matches*  and the places I bought I keep FOREVER on all wizards on my account. some people don't like it because they get treated like free player when new updates come out, they can only use the test realm if they have made a crowns purchase in the last 30 days, they have do buy a one days pass to PvP (not practices) and some more reason I can't remember.

Thanks for reading!

Magically,

Ravenwood Bulletin: December 2010


01 December 2010 - Volume XXVIII

Wizard101 Headmaster Merle Ambrose
Welcome to the December 2010 Ravenwood Bulletin Newsletter!

It's sure been a busy year for us here at Ravenwood; our pets have evolved, we grew over 10 million Wizards strong, we celebrated our second year of school, Selena Gomez visited the Spiral, new Schools of Magic were discovered, Wizards grew even stronger with new levels up to 60, and of course the whole new world of Celestia!

There's more to come before we round the year out, so keep reading and dig in!

Gardening comes to the Spiral

Wizard101 Life Professor Moolinda Woo Hello everyone! Professor Moolinda Wu here and I'm excited to tell you all about a new feature coming soon to the Spiral:Gardening! To get started on your path to a greener thumb, when this update is in the Live Game, come visit me in my classroom in Ravenwood if you are level 12 or higher.

Students at Ravenwood can plant and grow amazing plants in their Dorms and Castles! Wizards of all schools can garden, so my hope is that every student will learn the joy of shepherding new life!

A plant's journey of life begins as a seed. There are many types of seeds, each with a different destiny. With enough energy, you can prepare soil of your choice in your Castle (if you have one) or a planter in your dorm. Then you can place the seed into the readied soil. After a time, it will begin to grow. You can shepherd its growth through spells and other means of caring for it, creating an environment for it to thrive.

To learn more about Gardening, see our Update Notes

Harold Argleston's Book of the Month Club

Harold Argleston, Librarian
This is the December 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.

Here there be more dragons! This month we continue looking in to books that remind us of the world of Dragonspyre.

Dragon Slippers by Jessica Day George – The first in a series, Dragon Slippers introduces Creel, a feisty girl with a talent for sewing, and a world in which dragons are the good guys and try their best to stay out of the way of troublesome humans. George’s characters are terrifically drawn, especially the dragons, and the contrast between the kindly dragons and the not-so-kindly humans Creel encounters in her quest to make her living will impress kids who can understand irony.

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

Message from Mr Lincoln

Wizard101 Registrar Mr LincolnAccount Security Reminder from Mr Lincoln
Seems that time again when I have to remind young Wizards to not give their passwords to anyone! Ever! Even to me. KingsIsle Employees will -never- ask for your password under any circumstances.

This are a few simple steps to keep your Wizard101 account safe from the evil that people do.
  1. Keep your password secret. This may seem like the most basic common sense step, however it is the one most ignored. Your password is your Wizards. All the hard work that you put in to the characters that you play is gone when you give out your password.
  2. Keep your information up to date. If you registered for Wizard101 with a false or incorrect email, you cannot receive emails from us regarding your account security! Make sure the email address associated with your Wizard101 account is valid, and that you can receive email to that account.
  3. Don't fall for it. Websites and people that ask for your password with the promise of Crowns or levelling are just going to clean your account out. Again, your password is your Wizards. When you give your password away, you give your Wizards away too.
  4. Report suspected malicious activity. If you encounter a person or a website that asks for your password for any reason whatsoever, report it immediately. If this happens in game, use the REPORT button. If this happens outside of game, send an email tosupport@wizard101.com immediately.

Enjoy!
