Help Outside of Gaming from Wizard101

During the holidays, we’re running a contest through our “12 Days of the Spiral“.  The question is – what has Wizard101 or Pirate101 meant to you and/or your family in the past year?  Here is our fourteenth and final winner!  Read how Wizard101 helped this player learn life and educational skills through gaming.

Wizard101 has significantly impacted my life this year and it means so much to me.  This game has been my inspiration ever since I started playing it.  One extremely important thing wizard101 has done for me this year is that it has helped me work better with other people.  Many of the quests and adventures in the game can be very difficult and can only be accomplished with other wizards.  If you do not learn to get along with others then you will likely fall behind on your quests.  Also getting along with one another is one thing that is lacking in the 21st century.  Many wars have started from people not wanting to work together and share.  In Wizard101 you will learn to work together.

Furthermore, Wizard101 is my thesaurus and dictionary.  I was never really a good speller.  In fact, I could not write this blog without the help of Wizard101.  Incorrectly spelled words will turn red showing the player typing that his or her word is incorrect.  So that means if you cannot spell you cannot communicate with the other wizards in the game.  What’s the fun in a game you are not allowed to express your true feelings?  My point is that if you want to enjoy the game to its fullness you must learn to spell which will help you in your everyday life.

Additionally, Wizard101 is my “second history book.”  Wizard101 worlds such as Aquila have dungeons that display myths about past civilizations.  The Tartarus dungeon for example walks wizards through the Greek myth of the underworld.  In this dungeon we meet famous characters such as hades’ guard dog Cerberus, hades himself, Zeus, and Poseidon.  Wizards get a head start on Greek mythology from wizard101 so when they get to school they are two steps ahead everyone else.  This Christmas all I want is for Wizard101 to continue it amazing work on providing the best game for players around the world.

    I totally agree, this game is so awesome that I would cry if it went away. And Kingsisle I wanna let you know that your work is amazing. I want you guys to make even more worlds and more levels cause I just can’t get enough of Wizard101. I love the game and you should keep this game up for a long time. I always save up money to buy membership cause I wanna get farther and explore. Your game has made me feel happy when I got home and I love that feeling. I am a good artist for my age and I hope I can get into this company when I am older, but the only way to make that happen if this game gets all the care and hope in the world so it can keep on going. It will be a while until I would be able to get a job but I am certain that I will end up somewhere in this type of community. So Kingsisle I need your effort and all of the other players to help out. We need to keep this game going and be there for each other. BTW I want the scout to show this to one of the game makers cause it would really mean a lot to me. Sincerely, Zachary FireSword
