Your Favorite Year of Wizard101 Contest – Andrew WildSword
Today we have our first winner of the Birthday Celebration Blog Contest! Andrew WildSword, level 91 Fire Wizard, tells us about his favorite year of Wizard101 – 2013!
2014 has been an amazing year for Wizard101. We’ve seen new features in Dungeon Recall and Team Up, an unforgettable ending of a saga, and a new concept of Fishing!
But, 2014 is just one of the awesome years of Wizard101. My favorite year of Wizard101 is 2013. In 2013, we saw content that took Spiral life to a new level. Let’s take a look!
April – Hairstyles and Unstitching!
Hairstyle made personalization of your wizard more fun. It gave us more freedom with how we want our wizards to look, because you have to dress to impress! Along with this update, we were given an unstitching update also. So, if you stitched your favorite hat to a hairstyle you’re bored with, just unstitch! Other updates to Wizard101 were PvP rating systems, PvP spectating, furniture sets and more. But, we couldn’t fit all of that into one blog. Let’s move on!
June – Tournaments!
Tournaments were a great addition with moving onto the second age of PvP. It enabled us to compete for prizes with or even against our friends and the fiercest competitors in the arena! It ushered us into new, more formal and powerful matches, in which it’s crucial to win. PvP was changed forever!
August – Aquila and Minions!
Aquila is one of my favorite updates in Wizard101 history. It introduced the legendary Gods and Goddesses, mysterious and powerful. First is Zeus, who isn’t going to use all his power on a mortal, but is still powerful and wise. He won’t let you win, but the rewards are worth it!
Second is the feared Poseidon, who won’t hold back – much. As a level 70 wizard who has transcended many forces in the Spiral, you should be able to take on almost anything, right? You’ll just have to see, testing your might against the force of the sea!
And, lastly, you face THREE powerful Gods. Yes, all of the sons of Cronus have banded together in the ultimate challenge. Sounds hard, right? Well, it’s not just them. You must go through the Death Satyr, the ever-feared Death Minotaur, the trial of Stheno, and Cerberus, a vicious guard dog. Oh, and the one I haven’t mentioned? Hades, the final son of Cronus. Hades is within the heart of Tartarus, and he isn’t one you defeat with ease. But, the rewards? The rewards are of unimaginable greatness and provide some of the best statistics in the game. Oh, and one more thing – Minons were added to help you in Aquila along with other updates, but let’s move on!
November – Khrysalis and Shadow Magic!
Khrysalis was a fantastic beginning to the end of the Morganthe saga! We immediately saw a new spell in the storyline in King Artorius, just one of many things we didn’t expect! Instantly, you see exciting things that everyone had been long awaiting. We were revealed the members of the Council of Light, who are on a quest to defeat the Umbra Queen before it’s too late. And, their greatest asset? You!
Shadow Magic was an update that would change battlel forever. There are pros and cons to Shadow Magic, each spell with its own. Shadow Shrike, feared by all you may face, along with Shadow Sentinel, and Shadow Seraph, useful for tanking hits and healing. Of course, there is the con of Backlash to these spells as well as their own cons, but that’s the risk of the forbidden magic.
So, you never know what to expect in the Spiral, and 2013 was that exactly. Perhaps we should be thinking the same of 2014, hmm?
