You Know You’re A Wizard101 Player When…

Have you convinced everyone you know to create their own Wizard101 account? Do you dream at night about leveling up? Many of us play Wizard101 deep into the night, only going to bed when we absolutely have to. If this sounds like you, check out some of our favorite surefire signs that you’re a Wizard101 player.

1. One week after your friend first introduced you to the game, you convinced your whole family, best friends, neighbors, teachers, and more to create accounts.
2. You’ve had an awesome dream about Merle Ambrose calling you into his office with a yellow exclamation point over his head.
3. By looking at your watch, you can tell how much time is left before your pet hatches.
4. On the rare occasion you’re away from the game, you find yourself humming Wizard City’s battle music.
5. You throw a whole apple in your mouth and try to eat it in one bite. Why not? If your Piggle can do it, you can as well.


6. You play late into the night, only remembering to finish homework at the last minute. But before you open your books, you say, “Just one more battle.”
7. Someone makes you mad and you immediately imagine casting a spell on them.
8. A friend borrows money from you and you insist on being repaid in Crowns instead of dollars.
9. In the car, you half expect a yellow arrow to tell you which direction to go and how many more steps until you get to your destination.
10. On Halloween, you rock your Merle Ambrose costume.


11. You secretly hope your local pet shop will start selling Unicorns or Pixies.
12. At the grocery store, you insist on paying extra for the Mystic Dragon Potato. The man selling the potatoes has no idea how valuable those items are.
13. You try teaching your dog how to talk like the ones in Marleybone. It doesn’t work.
14. At the end of class, you sink into your seat like you’re preparing to teleport. You only get up when everyone else has left and the trick doesn’t appear to be working.
15. As you walk down the street, you randomly pick up pieces of scrap metal, rocks, & sticks for crafts.


16. You feel a legitimate fear when you see someone dressed in all black.
17. You have more than one Wizard101 account.
18. You buy prepaid cards to expand your perfect pet collection.
19. You battle the same boss over and over until he or she drops that one hat you know will make your gear stats perfect.
20. You constantly scavenge the wares at the Bazaar, searching for rare items to put in pride of place at one of your multiple houses.

What’s the number one sign to you that you’re a Wizard101 player?  Thanks to all of our amazing Wizard101 players who gave us inspiration!  See more funny lists like this on our message boards, on fansite Swordroll’s blog and on Wizard101 Central.

  2. Calamity PixieShade / Feb 12 2015 2:45 pm

    You refer to family members by their in game name rather than their in real life name. :-/. #Guilty

  3. Shαdσwßlαdε (@Shadowblader21) / Feb 12 2015 2:53 pm

    You’re obsessed with the Wizard101 Lore
    You download the Wizard101 Music Scrolls for your ringtone
    You start hearing wizzy music everywhere
    You count your chickens before they hatch for your grand plans in wizzy

    That’s all I can think of lol

    • Rebecca Goldblossom / Feb 20 2015 12:23 am

      Ya know, lol….I didn’t even think of ringtones. I went straight and dled them rofl!

  4. Ryan SpellThief (@minormoha) / Feb 12 2015 2:54 pm

    When you look forward to the grind that this game is, but it’s a fun kinda grind. 😀

  5. Ryan SpellThief (@minormoha) / Feb 12 2015 2:55 pm

    When you meet one of your best friends on the game.

  6. greatrain576 / Feb 12 2015 3:24 pm

    When you can’t stop talking, thinking, drawing, or writing about the game. This is true for me in all ways except writing, not my best ability. I have literally mastered drawing Helephant from memory.

  7. Eric FireHeart / Feb 12 2015 3:38 pm

    When you’re on YouTube and you wanna listen to a song, but then you realize you’ve been typing something referring to Wizard101 and can’t think of the song’s name for like 5 mins because you’re totally obsessed with the game. 😀

  8. Tanner Frogbringer / Feb 12 2015 3:52 pm

    I do all of these. At school dances I don’t dance with people becaus I’m on my phone on wizard101 central xD

  9. Anonymous / Feb 12 2015 5:45 pm

    I definitely go to the bazaar often to get new gear

  10. Sheesh4 / Feb 12 2015 6:43 pm

    LOL, I like #15

  11. sabrina Greenleaf / Feb 12 2015 6:53 pm

    I am on wizard101 everyday and every chance I get out of a 24 hr day to play.

  12. June / Feb 12 2015 8:34 pm

    I went shopping for groceries and found agave nectar. My first impulse was to put it all in my shopping cart cause that stuff is hard to find! 😀

  13. Jeff / Feb 12 2015 10:53 pm

    Its been a honor playing this game

  14. JeffThewizard / Feb 12 2015 10:55 pm

  15. kayse / Feb 13 2015 4:29 am

    When you keep pressing enter before you say anything to someone on other games or social networks.

  16. fran / Feb 13 2015 5:00 am

  17. chris / Feb 13 2015 10:14 am

    kingsisle why did yall make the sale on bundles in the morning i was going to buy one 😦

  18. Anonymous / Feb 13 2015 12:40 pm

    I suffer from the urge to pick things up for the side of the road. lol. I am an adult with more than one account. I play mainly with my adult sister, my best friend and my grandkids. We live in different states and Skpe while we play. Wizard101 (and Pirate101) have been great fun!!

  19. Rhonda / Feb 13 2015 1:13 pm

    LOL. My son and I play W101 together nearly every night. I just changed teacher to boss in a few of the above. This is such a great game and we have so much fun playing together. #21 should be: You have in depth conversations with your friends about the best way to beat the latest boss like the Jabberwock in Avalon and how long until you level up to use that new gear.

  20. Shelley Beaudoin / Feb 13 2015 9:01 pm

    you miss your childs birthday party because you’re in the middle of a long dungeon….

  25. Anonymous / Feb 18 2015 4:19 pm

    when you suddenly try to plant Couch Potatoes instead of the potato seeds you literally have in your hand!

  26. Amber Fairydust / Feb 18 2015 6:08 pm

  27. Amber Fairydust / Feb 18 2015 6:12 pm

    when you walk down the street and someone calls out your wizards name so you turn to answer but they dont have their name above there head and you cant mouse over to find out who they are oh wait a minute im not at the computer and my names not really Amber DOH!!!!

  32. Vanessa HawkHeart / Feb 19 2015 6:24 am

    17 out of 20 of these apply to me
    (Can’t teach my dog how to be like the Marleybone ones since I don’t have one. Also, I don’t really feel fear when I see people wearing black, since Death is my second favorite school. And third, I don’t buy potatoes…)
    However, I didn’t do a Merle Ambrose costume, but I did do a costume based on one of my max Wizards.

  33. amy star stone / Feb 19 2015 3:34 pm

    hi kingsisle its nice and all to give people a chance to try the game for free but when u try it u get addicted to it and when u don’t have any more quest its hard what im saying is u should give everyone it free and don’t waste your parents money please this is from a person who cares about other people:<

  34. GirlyGirl / Feb 19 2015 8:11 pm

    I’m almost all of them besides referring, wait I do to my twin, we can’t have a dog though 😦

  35. GirlyGirl / Feb 19 2015 8:13 pm

  36. GirlyGirl / Feb 19 2015 8:13 pm

  37. GirlyGirl / Feb 19 2015 8:14 pm


  38. Rebecca Goldblossom / Feb 20 2015 12:30 am

    Haha, having multiple accounts is one. Farming or “hunting” bosses for good gear another, Like others, I bet when hunting for gear you get something your other account needs or something similar looking to what you are hunting o3o. It is still fun though :D! We can’t help we love being addicted :).

  39. Anonymous / Feb 20 2015 1:13 am

    Well, XD I have three accounts

  40. Night / Feb 21 2015 3:39 pm

    I have 4 accounts and I can’t shut up about w101! I also gave it a nickname for it! WIZZY!

  41. SparkyMaster / Feb 22 2015 2:54 pm

    I dreamed of gaining 50 levels once! XD

  42. Night / Feb 26 2015 8:44 am

    You know you are a wizard101 player if you try waking into a fat tree
    You know you are a wizard101 player if you try walking into the middle of the street, hoping you will get a battle
    You know you are a wizard101 player if you walk up to an old, bearded man and ask, “what is my next quest?”
    You know you are a wizard101 player if you try to magically complete PARCC. Big fail.

  43. Fire Storm / Jun 27 2015 12:32 am

    You know your a true fan when your a, tween, teen, or adult, and you proudly tell every one you know and meet that you play and love Wizard101. And you have successfully convince at lest one person you know or have meant to play Wizard101.

  44. Michael / Sep 7 2015 10:10 pm

    Lol 🙂

  45. KingsIsle ROX! / Jan 25 2016 8:53 pm

    I have one: When your backpack gets too full, you start throwing items in the trash! 🙂

  46. Surebuckle71 / Jun 21 2016 2:08 am

    When you’re in a Spelling Competition and you say “T-R-E-E” for “T-H-R-E-E”, “S-I-X-T-H for “S-I-X” etc. Of course it doesn’t happen when you’ve got Open Chat. Wizard1014Life!

  47. Dustin WildStone / Jul 26 2017 3:35 pm

    1. When you walk into your house and half expect it to look like your dorm room or castle.
    2. When you’re carrying a normal deck of cards and expect to see “Boss Deck” written over it in bold letters.
    3. When you try to press x or click on an imaginary keyboard when you’re about to talk to someone.
    4. When you randomly do stuff in the game that you don’t wanna do just to be preoccupied instead of doing nothing when you’re waiting for your energy to get back up to full.
    5. When you look up sites like this and try to find every possible way to relate to every sign.

    • Dustin WildStone / Jul 26 2017 3:50 pm

      6. When you unlock a door and expect to go through to whatever world you’re currently in in the game
