Features You May Have Missed: The Victory Dance

Today’s “Feature You May Have Missed” is all about putting the boogie in your battles! You can win a fight, but can you win a fight — with style? Read on for more information about one of our newest innovations.

The best part of winning a tough battle? Celebrating it! Of course, no victory celebration would be complete without a nifty victory dance.

You’re probably well acquainted with the default victory dance, and you might even be a little tired of seeing the same victory dance over and over again. What you might not know is that you can actually choose your own victory dance.

If you want to change things up a bit, open your options menu. Next, navigate to the Gameplay Options 3 tab and find the “Victory Dance” option. You should see a victory dance option set to “original.” Click the left and right arrows to toggle which dance emote you’ll use for your victory dance.

Settings Menu

You can use any dance emote that you have access to, which means that non-members can choose between the Original and the Bee Dance. Members have even more options, from the Breakin’ emote to my personal favorite, the Oppa emote.


Now you can go and celebrate your hard earned victories with some snazzy new moves! What are you using for your victory dance?

Features You May Have Missed: Equipment Sets

We’re starting a new blog post series here on the KingsIsle Blog, talking all about “Features You May Have Missed.” After 10 years of making improvements to a game like Wizard101, we’ve come up with several amazing innovations – so many that sometimes all those innovations can be easily lost . . . and especially if you’re not keeping up with the update notes. Read on and make sure to give us feedback on this series as we continue writing.

I have a confession to make: I am absolutely terrible at keeping my backpack organized. It can be a bit overwhelming to dig through all of the items floating around in it, especially after an epic questing session. Worst of all is when I decide to try an item and decide that I don’t actually want to use it. As you can probably guess, finding that original gear can be a bit of a headache.


That brings me to one of my favorite lesser-known features of the game: Equipment Sets! These allow you to save and quickly switch between sets of equipped items for just about any situation, from questing to PVP to even pet training! If I want to try out a new item, I can return to my favorite gear with just a click.

Building an equipment starts with, you probably guessed it, equipping the gear you want to include in your saved set. These sets save your Hat, Robe, Boots, Wand, Athame, Amulet , Ring, Deck, and Pet. Note: Mounts aren’t saved in your equipment set. There’s an “Equipment Sets” button at the bottom of the backpack window that you can click to open the menu.

New Equipment button

Choose “Create New,” then choose a name from the list of pre-made options. I’m going to go ahead and create quick equipment set for my main gear, so I’ll call it Storm Main. Not very creative, but it gets the job done. You can label the gear set based on the color, school, situations you’d use it in, and even the stat it’s focused on boosting.

Equipment Sets Names

Now that your set has a name, you’re good to go! You can save up to 9 Equipment Sets total and there are a few ways to switch between them. Open Equipment Sets menu and double click the set you want to wear or use the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl + 1-9) associated with the set. As you can see, I’ve just got the one set right now, but I can’t wait to build more!

New Equipment Set

Since you can only have a max of 9 equipment sets, there may come a time when you need to delete an older set. Just click the set you want to remove, then click the “Remove Set” button underneath your list of sets (It’s the only one that’s not greyed out in the screenshot above). The set will be removed from your list, but the items will still stay in your backpack. If you sell an item that’s currently being used in an Equipment Set, the set is deleted from your list.

Equipment sets are a fantastic way to easily access your favorite gear. Like I mentioned earlier, this is one of my favorite lesser-known features. What’s your favorite feature that other Wizards might not know about?

New Pre-Paid Card in Northern Texas!

On KI Live we announced a new type of pre-paid card that can currently only be found in the Kroger stores of the Northern Texas area. We’re not quite ready to launch these cards across all of the United States, but if all goes well with our test market, you’ll probably see more of these cards in stores soon. These cards come with Crowns as usual, but also a pet jewel that has two talents and several other items (like an energy elixir and items for Pirate101). This pet jewel also gives your pet an aura.  Also note The type of jewel you get will depend on the month of the year in which you redeem it.
