20 Signs You're Addicted to Wizard101, and Now You're Playing With Teleporters

Is your homepage? Watch out, that's only the beginning!

1. You ask your friends if they'll loan you some crowns, er... money.

2. You can look at your watch and know exactly how much time is left until your pet hatches and you can hatch again, and exactly how much of your pet energy has restored.

"The Unknown Pet Files," Question of the Week, and Interesting Pictures

So everyone now knows about that infamous Fire Beetle, now available to the public, but several months back, finding it was one of the major things on peoples' to-do lists. Now we are unsure of new pets that we've either seen with our own eyes or seen pictures of. I now invite you to explore with me "The Unknown Pet Files," and gather all of the information on these now well-known pets that have yet to be discovered.

Wizard101 Central (see Links) users such as Deathshard have created hybrid-finding threads, though not all of them have been successful, and some people even frown upon them for whatever reason. ~Atticus~ began a project for the Zombie Piggle and got a response: "No ~Atticus~, This Only Worked For The Blaze Beetle Project. Please Don't Do This."

There are many pets who may or may not exist, who have been theorized, graphically modeled, and who have been hatched for for some time. Today, I'm looking at only a few.

"What's the Wyvern Hoarding?" and Find Us on Twitter!

Some of the possible new items: the Aquarium, Cuckoo
Clock, Bird Bath, Chicken Coop, Red Brick Wallpaper, Tiles
 (Name Unknown), and Gold Wyvern
After the Dragon's Hoard, a lot of wizards are probably burnt out on crowns and certainly fresh out of the motivation to try for some new mount from the Wyvern's Hoard. I personally haven't spent a fortune on either, so I was ready to answer the question "What's the Wyvern Hoarding?"

Looking at some of the possible items on the guide, this pack struck me as interesting, and I wanted to try it out. I went out, set my crown limit, and began buying a few packs. What I found was good and bad.

"The Portal" and Wizard101 Central's 3rd Birthday!

Thanks to Paige's Page (see the Links), I was able to play with my new favorite housing item - the portal!

The portal comes in many different colors, each requiring a few different ingredients, some of which are treasure cards - usually level 48 spell cards. This will likely put these cards in high demand, and get more people crafting - the portals aren't "tradeable," so you'll have to either use them only on one wizard, or get out those crafting stations!

Back to Blogging, Samoorai Pet, House-A-Palooza, and Wysteria

Remind you of someone?
Well, it's been quite some time since I've blogged about Wizard101, and to be honest, I've been away doing other things, but I'm back and ready to get to it! You know, I ought to write a blog post about "Staying Interested," because Wizard101 has had a difficult time keeping me around. After several weeks, I returned to find only Fairy Wings. I was expecting progress of the latest world, a new tower, or some new pet in the crown shop or something. Well now, all of that is here!

First off, there's a new Samoori Pet in the crown shop. The pet costs 7,500 crowns ($13 at normal price), and has some nice talents actually. It gives a Unicorn card as well.
