The Future of Wizard101 - Part 2: It's All In The Mind


Theorycrafters are responsible for a lot of Wizard101's business. If you've opening your latest Ninja Lore Pack, wondering "what silly distraction comes next," then you might just log off and slowly fade into the endless world of blogging and spending more time doing it than actually playing the game... um, yeah, I might be speaking from experience there. Anyway, because of all the ideas and theorycrafting, wizards are kept wondering what's next. When you really look at the complexities of the game, there are a surprising number of loose ends, and that's done on purpose. Bloggers literally from all over the world get the chance to tie them up for you... some is realistic ways, and others not so much. I'd like to present to you some of MY ideas about where we're going in Wizard101's future worlds, and some of the most popular theories on what's coming next!

The Future of Wizard101 - Part 1: Merle's Crystal Ball


Remember when you first typed in "wizard101.com?" You saw Merle, gazing into his crystal ball, at what would soon be you. You're the reason for Wizard101 - the players. If you want to be direct and say "money," you can take that route, but without YOU, Wizard101 could not properly function. To get your money, though, KingsIsle has to constantly update the game and its features to gain new players and keep old ones entertained. For the first part of "The Future of Wizard101," a four part series, we'll take an in-depth look at where our in-game future is headed based on what will be added because of player feedback.

Mystery Puzzle Solving Tips and Questions of the Week


KingsIsle has offered us the first major excitement of the year - a puzzle! This challenge, designed to be solved by each wizard of the Spiral, will reveal the next new piece of content. Every official fansite will be continuously offering pieces to add to your puzzle, when they aren't even sure what it'll be themselves. Let ME get you excited, though, because I have a bit of conclusion drawing to do that will reveal exactly what this new content is. And have you ever wondered what exactly the Spiral Geographic Society is? And what about your leopard pet with that Sprite talent? I got a few questions about these topics via email this week that I thought I'd post the answers here for everyone to read.

Foo Dog Winner and The Ninja Lore Pack!


Well, I've only got three entries for the free, random-colored Foo Dog, which means another easy win for one of our readers! I've got the winner for you below! Wizard101 has also announced and released the Ninja Lore Pack, but it doesn't come without controversy. No mount, few new items, no new theme, and rank 4 and 5 spells at any level... oh, and there's the fact that the only real updates we've received this year are packs... and we're two and a half months into the year!
