Your Favorite Year of Wizard101 Contest – Kenneth IceBlade

It’s our second winner of the Birthday Celebration Blog Contest!  Kenneth IceBlade, level 81 Ice Wizard, tells us all about his favorite year… 2010!

I’ve played Wizard101 for over 5 years now, and my favorite year in Wizard101 history was 2010. So many new features and were added and it was totally awesome! 2010 added so many things to make the game even more fun, and here’s why!

First off, one of the best updates of 2010 was PETS! Wizards from all around the Spiral get to meet up in Wizard City with their best and most beloved pets and make something new and adorable by hatching with another person! They became more than just cute little animals who followed you around. They became talented, extraordinary creatures to assist you. The talents system is REALLY useful, and I love it when my pets cast healing spells for me, especially when I’m in a jam with a tough boss. I love my pets so much! And of course, let’s not forget training them. The games in the Pet Pavilion were super relaxing, and gave us Wizards something to do other than study in Ravenwood or go off battling monsters in Grizzleheim. The whole Pet Pavilion is pure fun!

Another huge release: the lost, faraway world of Celestia! I was so excited about getting to be the first to fight through the new bosses and experience the new storyline and everyone couldn’t wait! Not only that, but Selena Gomez made a stop in Wizard City, and it was cool seeing a celebrity from real-life being in the Spiral.

The release of Celestia also gave three brand-new, phenomenal surprises, known as the Astral Schools. These schools are extremely useful to all the wizards of the Spiral and have definitely given us an extra power boost to our spells! But none of us forgot our original schools though; our professors caught our attention with new Rank 8 spells for all Ravenwood schools, an awesome new spell for a powerful, legendary wizard!

And the last major release of the year was Gardening, another great hobby that wizards still do and love today. I always love harvesting my plants and getting some nice reagents to help me craft some good gear. And there was nothing wrong with a little showing-off of your exotic plants from all over the spiral in your garden.

2010 wasn’t just about the releases and content for me, though. I made some of my best friends in 2010, and I still talk to most of them even after the four years that I met them. It was even more epic when we got to battle our way through the Trial of the Spheres and defeat Mithraya together. 2010 was an awesome year for me and I hope I get another year like this in 2015.

wizard101-2010-3

Overall, the new content was amazing, especially the release of hobbies in the game, giving wizards something to do in their free time and relax, to just chill out like an Ice Wizard. Let’s not give too much attention to just 2010, though. The years before and the years after both gave Wizard101 amazing parts of the game that made the Wizard101 experience one-of-a-kind. I look forward to the new releases of 2015, and I hope you do too. Thanks for reading!

  29. Madison IceBreeze / Sep 23 2014 11:18 am

    I have been playing Wizard101 for years now, and so far they were all amazing! I’m fascinated by everything about this game! I love the different schools, I love the cool spells, all the different worlds, the gardening, the houses, the pets, the characters, and even more. So basically, I love everything about Wizard101. The thing I love most about this game would have to be the battles. The way the battles are set up amazes me. The people who came up with the setup must be geniuses! It’s complex yet so simple and easy to understand at the same time. I couldn’t think of anything better! My favorite year of Wizard101 would have to be this year. Every year KingsIsle adds more cool updates to make the game even more awesome! Every new year always ends up becoming my favorite year because of this. Never stop improving! Happy birthday Wizard101 and many more!

    I love this wizard because its all about having fun not about showing off your skills and judging people about they need to do better well no its not like that its all about making people happy and have a great day play wizard101 and have some fun for once. Plus some people who are haters thinks that they can judge people saying that you oh your terrible at this game and its not like that you should always help a friend who needs help learning the game so the alonely thing im saying is that don’t be haters and injoy the game.
