Wildfire Tag and Mount-A-Palooza


I might be staying as far from Avalon as possible, but don't think for a minute that I haven't been in the Test Realm! The new Crown Shop items, banking restrictions, and other updates - wouldn't miss 'em! One of the greatest new items coming to the live realm soon is the Housing Tag Game. It appeared in the Test Realm earlier this year with the Misc. updates, but didn't make it to live that time around. Now it's back, and hints at future housing games, too. Mercenaries For Hire, an experienced group of wizards that assist anyone in the Spiral for free (find them on Wizard101 Central!) hosted a test realm party that gave a large group the opportunity to test this newest feature!

After everyone was logged in, loaded, and standing just outside the entrance to the Sun Palace, the Mercenaries quickly took charge and prepared a tag game.


Now, this isn't just any old tag game, it's Wildfire Tag! Whoever starts the games is turned into a Fire Elf. Anyone they tag becomes a Fire Elf, too, until only one player remains - they are the winner. Regular tag can't be restarted by anyone but the owner, it's ongoing. Wildfire Tag, however, could be started by anyone.


The thing was, this wasn't an ordinary house, either! It had many portals leading to various parts of the house (you cannot play inter-house tag, you'll leave the game if you leave the house). You might be somewhere safe, like the pedestal in the house, inaccessible by those below, or you might end up in the heat of the fire! There were some clever places, and no dead-ends, so the games were quite interesting. There were plenty of power-ups going around, too!


After a few games, prizes were awarded, and tag continued on into the night, even after the hosts left. If you're into blogging or the Wizard101 Community, chances are, you knew someone here. There were mercenaries there such as Katherine Light. There were bloggers such as Paige Moonshade and Diana Wildheart. And I also got to meet Kelsey Fireheart in person! And don't worry, this isn't the last you'll hear about her!


The game was quite entertaining, despite a few permanently frozen players running around in an odd position, or a slow-walking glitch. That's what testing is for, though.

  2. All items located environment need to be tested and tagged,
    however this does not mean that all items in an office for example do not need to be tested! There are some areas of an office environment that are hostile,and many dangerous items brought in to non-hostile areas by unsuspecting employees safe for personal use. .

  3. It's important to remember that when you're testing and tagging in any part of any things, you're basically doing it very carefully.
    It includes Independent Test And Tag both the each one receiving its own test and tag.
