Swordroll's Blog Backgrounds and More On the Snowball Pet!


Introudcing Swordroll's Blog Backgrounds! With this post comes the release of a brand-new page! I've noticed that many wizards have been searching for Wizard101 Backgrounds lately, and several have stumbled upon images here on the blog. To make things easier, I've taken some of my best shots (yes, they're all mine), and made them a uniform size for your to use as a computer background! There's even a guide on how to do it! Check it out at http://www.swordroll.com/p/backgrounds.html!

The first fifteen or sixteen backgrounds are currently uploaded and ready to go, but be sure to check back for more in the next few days! Announcements will be made as the page is updated. As usual, KingsIsle does have a copyright on all images, and Gameforge is responsible for much of the publishing... in other countries any way. Speaking of which, the UK Community Manager and I have been talking, and we're trying to work out Swordroll's Blog becoming the next official fansite in the UK, so that wizards from all over the world can read about adventures near and far! If you want to check out Wizard101 Central or Mason's Blog, see the official fansite page at http://www.wizard101.co.uk/wizard101_en/game/community/fansite.

After you're done reading, you'll probably be around the Spiral questing, and there's no doubt that you've been wondering about the Snowball pet, and where you're going to get yours, if you'll hatch or buy it yourself, how you're going to get that new Freeze talent, etc. I'll remind you to take a look at the Petnome page (http://petnome.pbworks.com/w/page/49129017/Snowball) for the already completed Snowball! It has many useful talents in general such as "May Cast Freeze," but is focused on the school of Ice, so Ice wizards will specifically enjoy this one. If you loved the crazy pet rock, you'll love the Snowball, too, because it has those some, crazy eyes and all! This is the perfect winter companion with a pedigree of 60 and a Snowball Strike card, which is the very first three-pip AoE. It's going for 3400 crowns in the Crown Shop, but act fact - it's only here for a limited time!

KingsIsle shared the Snowball Strike spell in action with their latest video:


The Snowball is definitely a pet I think we'll be seeing a lot of in the Spiral, but if you can't afford one, or haven't found anyone to hatch, you can always stop by the Wizard Weekly Giveaway on Facebook, where fifteen lucky people will receive a code for a Snowball pet. You'll need to be logged in to Facebook to participate, and you don't need to be online at the end of the even to win, you just need to join! Here are all the details:
