The Dragon Wings (Permanent) in action. Aren't they huge?
The Dragonrider's Balance Blade and the complete
Dragonrider's Assailing Set.
You might say, "Wow, Swordroll, how many crowns and how much time did you spend on all of this." You might be surprised. I didn't spend too long on the pet stuff, in fact I got my Fog Unicorn by accident when I scored too high by mistake one game. And the Dragon sets? About 13,000 crowns (they've sat around forever, what else was I to spend them on?). You might think that's a lot, but considering I bought the $60 special, that's only about $13. Now $20 gets you 10,000 crowns, which doesn't cover half the items I received. In reality, I didn't even pay for the Sea Dragon, let alone the mount, gear, sword, and other rare pets (and even mega snacks). Now I'm tempted to purchase more crowns.

The Pet-A-Palooza has really gone above and beyond my expectations. I haven't particularly watched the prices of the pets in the crown shop, but the sale also interests me. I've been playing quite a few games of WizardBlox, it's fairly easy to score in those low-range areas for some of the promotion pets that aren't available any other way. Unfortunately, pets like the Shardtail Dragon are a little bit out of my scoring range, I just haven't become skilled enough at the game. I have been trying to get the Storm Beetle (175,000 to 199,999 on WizardBlox), but it is difficult to obtain that scoring range. In fact, going over by accident is how I ended up with my Fog Unicorn. Anyway, about Level 5 you have maybe 160,000 and you often can't reach 175,000 before you finish the level and get the level bonus and speed bonus, which skyrocket your score to over 200,000. If I realize I can't make 175,000 before the end of the level, I'll go really slowly, so as to avoid a large speed bonus. I have yet to obtain this pet, but I'll definitely keep trying.

I was looking at the page on Wizard101.com and they didn't even mention the possible Sea Dragon and Permanent Dragon Wings mount items. This is really an impressive pack. One thing I did notice was that while the website displayed a clean set of armor with this intricate gold trim, all clean-cut and shiny, the armor in-game is fairly dull in comparison, although still attractive. I think the robe is my favorite.

Should I get more crowns, I'm aiming to get the final of the three new dragon pets, complete my armor sets, and get that rare Bone Dragon mount. For now, I'm off to train my new dragons with some of the many rewards. But, before I go...

You knew it was coming.

"On the fifth day of voting, Swordroll said to me, 'Why Do I Even Bother?!'
'This is just useless,'
'Maybe I should just vote,' 
'Where are the voters?' 
and 'Vote for a site name please.'"

You know I'm considering holding a contest in which you will be entered if you post... maybe I'm just that desperate. We're running out of days to vote, but it's never too late to post!
