A new year is upon us, young Wizards! And while the seasons do not change in the Spiral, there are always new things to be discovered!
In this month's newsletter, we have Harold Argleston's Book of the Month Club that starts off the new year with a book about a wolf!
Our latest addition to the game, Gardening, has a few players scratching their heads, and we've got some help for you.
We also have some information about Frequently Asked Questions, Internet Safety, Wizard merchandise and a year of Awards.
Read on, young Wizards! Good adventures to you all.
Harold Argleston's Book of the Month Club
This is the January 2011 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 month we begin looking at books that remind us of the world of Grizzleheim. Inspired by Norse mythology, Grizzleheim is an airy, outdoor landscape of snowy mountains, glacial ridges and towering trees that is home to three new Wizard101 tribes - Bears, Wolves and Ravens.
Lone Wolf is the first book in a new series called Wolves of the Beyond by Kathryn Lasky. If you liked Kathryn Lasky’s Guardians of Ga’hoole series, try this story of an outcast wolf pup named Faolan who has to survive without his pack. There are some sad parts in this story, but there’s a hopeful ending that leads right into the next book in the series, Shadow Wolf.
Look for this book in your school or local library and enjoy reading, young Wizards!
Hints & Tips
Gardening Hints & Tips
Our latest addition to the game, Gardening, has brought many hours of spell casting and harvesting fun, but it has also brought with it some questions.
How do I Harvest?
Only plants that have reached the Mature level can be harvested. Plants that have needs or bad pests cannot be harvested, so make sure you take care of your plants first! Once they're free of needs or bad pests, simply close your Gardening panel and approach the plant. A "Click X to Interact" option will appear and you will harvest items from the plant! Once a plant has reached the Elder stage, it can only be harvested one last time before it disappears.
Are there Good Pests?
Yes! Most definitely! One of the early good pests you will see is the Pixie. If you see a Pixie on your plant, you must be doing something right! Well done, young Wizards, you truly have a 'green thumb'!
New Message Board Section As time goes by, we find that young Wizards just entering the Spiral have the same questions that our legendary Wizards had when they first began.
We have compiled many of these "Frequently Asked Questions" and put all the answers in one place. Before you post on the message boards or contact support, check to see if your question is already answered in our Frequently Asked Questions Message Board.
We at KingsIsle Entertainment take your privacy and safety very seriously. We have compiled some 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.
