Which Wizard101 Characters Are You Like?

Main-Screen

It’s fun to compare yourself to video game characters, and the Spiral is full of great ones! Which Wizard101 characters are you like?

If you’re single-minded…

After Malistaire’s wife Sylvia died, he left his post as professor of the Death School in Ravenwood and turned his focus toward stealing the powerful book known as the Krokonomicon. His goal? Making the Dragon Titan bring his wife back. It’s hard not to admire that kind of stubborn determination!

If you’re stylish…

Some Wizard101 players select clothing items based primarily on how fashionable they are, then stitch on the properties of other garments so they’re able to pack a punch in battle and look great while doing so! If that sounds like you, chances are that you identify with Dalia Falmea, professor of fire magic. Dalia can usually be seen wearing her trademark red and orange gown, but if you’ve ever encountered her in the Wizard City Telegraph Box during the Five B.O.X.E.S event, you’ll probably recall she has a stunning blue outfit as well. One thing’s for sure: Whatever color she’s wearing, Dalia is dressed to impress.

If you love to travel…

Most Wizard101 characters only frequent certain regions of the Spiral, but Prospector Zeke isn’t one of them. In fact, he can be found in the main area of each world, selling mounts and assigning quests. He’s one of the first characters you meet as a young Wizard, and you’ll still find yourself interacting with him at Level 100! If you enjoy visiting different places and trying to blend into the local culture wherever you go, you’ve got something in common with Prospector Zeke!

If you’re always willing to lend a hand…

When Malistaire disappeared following his wife’s death, classes at the Death School were canceled indefinitely. Without a professor, the school faced an uncertain future, and that’s when Malorn Ashthorn stepped in to ensure the practice of necromancy didn’t die out—no pun intended. This student-turned-teacher can be found in Ravenwood, making sure new Death Wizards know the basics of their school. Once they’ve picked up a few skills and spells, Malorn directs them to Nightside, where they can continue their studies with Dworgyn, a more seasoned instructor.

If you simply love being yourself…
It’s fun to find similarities between yourself and video game characters like the familiar faces in Wizard101, but at the end of the day, you’re one of a kind—and that’s something to celebrate! Wizard101 lets you show off your uniqueness by giving you the opportunity to choose your character’s name, school, outfit and even hairstyle, so no two Wizards are the same!

Wizard101 Tips and Tricks You Probably Didn’t Know

wizard

Many games have cheat codes, and although Wizard101 players aren’t cheaters, they are pretty smart! Here are some Wizard101 tips and tricks to help players advance their characters, get free stuff and improve their overall gaming experience.

 

 

Skip the test

When a new player sets up a Wizard101 account, Merle Ambrose will guide him or her through the process of creating a character. This involves choosing the Wizard’s gender, name and appearance, as well as taking a test to determine which school the Wizard belongs to. The quiz, which can be found in the Book of Secrets, includes questions about the player’s personality, preferences and priorities. While it’s great for newbies who are unsure which school will fit them best, it’s not as useful for seasoned players looking to create secondary characters who belong to particular schools. Rather than trying to guide the quiz toward recommending a specific school, these players can select the “Skip the test” option—or simply select a different school if the quiz doesn’t suggest the one they’re hoping for.

Find the bizarre at the bazaar

The wide variety of wares on offer at the Bazaar is one of the best-kept Wizard101 secrets. It’s possible to sort the items on sale at the Bazaar in several different ways: alphabetically, by rank, by school, by cost and by number. Players who love snagging rarities to use, wear or display can click the “#” sign in any category to see what’s in short supply. Crafted items even appear at the Bazaar from time to time!

Sidestep item limits

Wizards’ backpacks, banks, houses and attics all have item limits, but players with more than one character on their accounts can take advantage of the shared bank. The shared bank is often used to transfer items between players—a Life Wizard who wins a pair of Storm boots could pass them along to a Storm Wizard created using the same account, for example—but it’s also a great option to keep in mind when storage space gets tight. Meanwhile, players who want to place more items in their houses than the usual restrictions allow may want to purchase the Bric-a-Brac Elixir from the Crown Shop for a permanent 50-item increase.

Play mini games on FreeKIGames.com

Mini games like Potion Motion and Doodle Dug are a fun part of the Spiral, but players don’t have to be inside the Wizard101 universe to play. At FreeKIGames.com, Wizard101 fans can play the games they know and love, and win exclusive free game codes in the process. They may not be Wizard101 cheat codes, but they’re prize codes, which is even better!

Follow Wizard101 on social media

Players who follow Wizard101’s Facebook and Twitter accounts can win free items by being among the first to redeem codes for pets, mounts, reagents, treasure cards and more. There’s no telling when the next flash offer will pop up, so players should keep their eyes peeled and their fingers ready to type in the next code at a moment’s notice!

4 Online Safety Tips for #DataPrivacyDay

parent and kid

Did you know that January 28, 2016 is Data Privacy Day? Data Privacy Day was created to help raise awareness about the importance of online security. While online safety is important in all aspects of the internet, it is particularly important when playing online games like Wizard101 and Pirate101. Let’s explore some helpful tips to keep your personal information and KingsIsle game accounts safe.

Never share your password with anyone.

Some dishonest people online may seek to gain control of your game account by offering to give you Crowns or in-game items if you share your account with them. To keep all of our players’ account safe, it is against the Terms of Use to share your password, and thus share your account, with anyone. If you do this, you will lose your account forever, and that’s no fun! Always remember, KingsIsle employees will never ask for your password. More information about the dangers of account sharing can be found in this helpful video from Wizard101 Help and Support.

 

Parental Controls

 

Protect your identity online.

It’s fun to make friends in online games, but personal information isn’t always appropriate to share in game. Parents should discuss with their children the types of information that shouldn’t be shared online, such as home address, phone number and full name. It’s easy to control your child’s interactions within Wizard101 and Pirate101 by using the various chat settings available. The safest version available for young players is Menu Chat, which allows player to use pre-selected phrases to communicate. To access your account chat settings visit, My Account and then Parental Controls at the Wizard101 or Pirate101 websites. Learn more about the various chat settings in our Players Guide.

 

Support Badge

 

Look out for imposters.

Some people online may attempt to access your game account or personal information by pretending to work for KingsIsle. If you need help from customer support, send an email to help@kingsisle.com. KingsIsle Customer Support will never reply back to your email, or send you emails directly, from any domain other than Kingsisle.com. For example, we will never email you from gmail.com or yahoo.com. Also, KingsIsle will never ask for your whole credit card number, expiration date or pin code. In game, KingsIsle employees have a special KingsIsle Support badge. If any player claims to work for KingsIsle, but is not able to show you this badge, do not believe them as they may be an imposter.

Cheating can cheat you.

Any program claiming to be able to cheat, “hack,” or generate Crowns should not be trusted. Players should also be wary of websites or social media users (with the exception those on our Official Fan Sites list) that offer to give you free Crowns or in-game items. While some of these may be honest attempts at a giveaway, others may have purchased these codes using stolen credit cards which will then put your game account at risk if you redeem them. Also, do not buy Gold, Crowns, bundles or subscriptions from any other site than the official sources for Wizard101 and Pirate101. Purchasing through unauthorized third party sources can put your credit card and game account at risk of being stolen.

Following the tips above is a great place to start in keeping your account and personal information safe while playing KingsIsle games. Practicing good judgement online is important for players of all ages. For parents looking to learn more about general online safety for their children, Google Safety Center is a great resource.

Here’s to happy and safe online gaming in 2016!
