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?

  6. Anonymous / Sep 17 2014 6:41 pm

    My favourite year is the every year, because it has lots of new updates including shadow magic, Mount Olympus and many more, I loved the decoration so much I had lots of fun with my friends decorating each other’s house, but I think I best part is: stitching because I loved to do it to every single one of my wizards cause some of them I don’t like as much as when after I stitched it, and hopefully I can win 60,000 crowns then I have lots more to do :D.

  7. Leonardo / Sep 17 2014 6:42 pm

    i generally love wizard 101 it has been very entertaining and inviting i am always looking for new events made bye kingsisle so when i saw this i HAD to enter it!! :D. ok so my favorite year has been 2013! (last year) because all these new worlds came out khrysalis, one and i believe two as well, i was also exceptionally excited when the arcane bundle came out i just loved seeing all the variations of building styles. i also was very pleased when they let us have them in the real realm ( i am aware that was this year 2014) but i am very excited for more things to come out as well, i think that every one in kingsisle has done the best job ever in making this into a exiting game keep up the great work guys. 🙂 🙂

  10. AmandyPandy / Sep 17 2014 8:34 pm

    what has been my favorite year in wizard101 has to be the pet derby, everyday I try to level up my pet to see what talents she gives me. I loved it when I was in the test realm testing out how the new pet updates would help me out, oh they helped out a lot in dungeons when I needed a buff or two. I loved it when my pet cast a spell for me, you know that this was one of the best things that happened for wizards like me who like to solo places. Even though I don’t do much pvping with my pet I still have fun with them Well happy birthday wizard101!

  14. Janet Ramsey / Sep 18 2014 10:30 am

    the intro to the second shadow magic was my favorite thing to come to the game. you may ask why not the shrike shadow magic or so on,well me being death with crow combined with the healing shadow magic just goes way past benefiting me. or a strong deer knight with a healing shadow magic behind it how can you go wrong.i am not sure if kings isle will pick me as the winner if they do great if not i will still continue to play this amazing game, and look forward to the upcoming content the team has coming to us wizards.if not chosen for any prizes i still will continue to play this game no matter if it will be on my death wizard or my fire wizard thank you kings isle for the amazing game you produce and best wishes to all the wizards in the game may ambrose protect us all 🙂

  26. Zahir Gainer / Sep 19 2014 4:11 am

    I have been with wizard101 since 2009 and I have to say; this is by far the best fantasy game i ever played; plus i was looking for a very-good online game that would be interesting, and at the sametime have some great texture , sound and effects. If i had to choose one year where kingisle was at it best; it would be this year for khyrallis part 2 since that world look amazing; great job kingisle i given you guys a thumbs up. Also the road to 100 is really exciting to know about too; in addition, Pirate101 was another great accomplishment too , because who doesn’t want to play as a pirate, stealing gold from other pirates. best two games ever well done. Anyway, yea 2014 was kingisle best year.

Anyway, yea 2014 was kingisle best year.. But if there was another years that kingisle was also at their best; it would have to be from years when Zafaria to Avalon, thought that was a nice point for kingisle because it introduces back something of a myth and using it to serve a very interesting purpose, if you look how great the graphic, texture, and the follow of the game ( based on you internet connection) it really something worth playing ( if you dont mind playing for it everytime you advanced throughout wizard101 then this is worth your money I think. Lastly, I have to say some of the various mission throughout wizard101 are sometime difficult and other times just easy ( depending on the world you are in); I thought Dragonspyre was going to be hard, it wasn’t as hard; but for some reason the world that would be hard for beginners would be Grizzelheim, Mooshu and the other worlds beyond except for Wyerstia. Finally Wyerstia was another world which in my opinion was something easy for beginner players; in order to train alot on; I know i did alot of traininng. In conclusion, kingisle thank you for a wonderful game for me and for the millions of kids having this magical experenice with friends and family.

    my favourite year….. know i don’t know! at the time i have been playing its been so much fun! Year after year there are new updates and offers and discounts and so much more! i have enjoyed each and every moment of wizard101!

  39. Keelan Soulwraith / Sep 20 2014 8:15 am

    My favorite year of Wizard101 has been this year. I love all of the new shadow spells. The new level 98 pets also introduce some new, good talents. My favorite thing being PvP, I like how KI reversed the Jade gear, which made matches take forever, with Shadow Strike, so now most Exalted PvPers critical spam instead. And last but not least, I like fishing, because it gives me something to do when I don’t want to farm a boss or do PvP.
    Thank you!
