Top Ten Fancy Things in Wizard101
Somewhere between the adjectives “cute” and “regal” lies what we term as “Fancy.” “Fancy,” you ask? Why yes! Let us explain . . . .
A fancy item would be more akin to an unusual family heirloom at an antique store than a “cute” plastic toy from the rainbow-infected kid’s section of a local big box store. Furthermore, fancy items would still be affordable, unlike a “regal” purchase of diamond-encrusted boots custom made for the Duke of Snobbington.
It’s a fine line, but with that definition in mind, here’s our top ten list of Fancy Items in Wizard101.
1- Fancy Yogurt
Not only does everyone’s favorite Rank 9 Pet Snack have “fancy” in the name, it’s a snack liked by most Ice Pets and pets who like “munchies.” While it may not be as regal as a meal of Hambrosia, for a snack, this yogurt is the cream of the crop.
2- The Gold-Wrought Eagle Mount.
This mount is a relatively new one that was released about a year ago. It’s not a regular eagle, but one fashioned out of gold . . . oh that’s fancy! If you want to feel a little fancy yourself, you can even pick up a 1-Day version of the mount from Prospector Zeke on the cheap!
3- Marleybone Clothes
Certainly Marleybone is only the third world along the long chain of worlds on your path to level 100 . . . but their style is top quality! From Opera masks, to top hats, to tuxedos with tails, you can find all you need from Regeant’s Square to keep you looking sharp no matter the world you embark upon.
Believe it a not there was a time before a Wizard could change their hairstyle on a whim. Yes, it was hats, hats, and more hats, but now you can find a plethora of fancy hairstyles, from “The Abracadabra” to “The Taffy.” Now you can make your hair about as fancy as you want!
Avalon . . . just Avalon! Nothing is fancier than a medieval world dubbed “the silver city.” Knights, dragons, and . . . well, just ignore the goblins and giants. Avalon has an amazing castle called the Keep of Ganelon and just happens to be the birthplace of our own Merle Ambrose. It’s fancy!
6- Furniture from Mooshu
One only needs to look as far as the amazing vases of Mooshu to know that we’re not in Kansas anymore. Everything about furniture from Mooshu screams fancy . . . put up some bamboo wallpaper, add a Gong of the Oni, lay down a Koi Pond, and you’ve instantly set the stage for a fancy fest in fancy town.
Neville Cobblestone in, go figure, Marleybone is more than happy to hook you up with a Grand Piano for the price of 15,000 gold . . . or the upright piano for 5,000 gold. Both are fancy, but it’s clear which one is more fancy of the two. Don’t skimp, Wizards! And if you’re talented enough to actually want to play the piano, then head to the Crown Shop and pick up a “Playable Piano” for not much more.
8- 50 million monolith
Back in December 2014 KingsIsle hit a special goal and put out a fancy housing item to match this great accomplishment . . . the 50 Million Monolith! With the elegant swash of KingsIsle’s logo topped with a vast swirl of The Spiral . . . it’ about as fancy as they come — plus it’s a great way to show your pride in Wizard101 and Pirate101!
9- Dapper Corgi
There are a number of fancy pets in Wizard101 (we know who you are Spark Beast lovers), but not many of them are as fancy as the Dapper Corgi! This little fella by your side says . . . why yes I do dress my pets, and yes I am fancy! With the Corgi’s card of Fuel, let’s say he’s especially fancy for you folks who are a bit hot under the collar (cough, fire wizards, cough).
10- The Coat of invincibility
Let’s be honest, who here got into PvP just to spin up 1000 tickets to purchase their Commander robe? For boys, it’s an epic armor look and for girls, it’s all about “the wings.” These robes are possibly the epitome of fancy. Sure they may be good in a fight and Brandon Mistborn may have something more your speed, but nothing says elite like “the wings.”
Think you’ve got a good item to add to our list of fancy? Let us know in the comments. We’d love to hear what you think . . . and remember, pinky up!
