Wizard101 made some major updates to Aquila yesterday. For one, in addition to two previous new Aquila spells, they added another - Lava Lord. They updated gear, they lowered prices, and they released the next step up from Mastery Amulets - Exalted Amulets!
Wizard101's Aquila: New Spells!The Loremaster is dropped as a permanent spell. The rest are available from gear. Fiery Giant is available on Hades gear. Another one is the Lava Lord - a Fire version of Storm Lord (why all the Fire spells?). It also comes on gear from Tartarus.
Ice and Water Efreet aren't entirely new, but it has been put on several of the new gear pieces. They do Ice and Storm damage, and add large weaknesses. All of these spells are in a video below.
Game-Changing GearA lot of people have been complaining that the gear in Aquila isn't anything special. As of tonight and through a closer look, we can see that that has quickly changed. We've now got level 70 Waterworks-style sets, and many level 90 sets, all with different builds. We've got a variety of interesting wands.
These Exalted Amulets not only allow you to use pips with a secondary school, but also provide a damage and resistance bonus for that school... or at least that's the way we interpreted the description. No one has actually seen these yet, and whether or not they've being saved for live or are already in-game is still a mystery, therefore.
Housing Item Pick-Ups!There are new items to pick up all over Aquila - and they're huge! There is a plant by the vendor, Apollo's banner in his room in Olympus. Then you can get a Zeus statue in Olympus as well. Then there's a big statue in Atlantea, and a Hades mural, etc.
I can see people running multiple wizards through these locations just for additional decorations.
New Spells in ActionHere's a video of the new spells being used in combat! Notice that some of the effects are different than what's listed on the cards (shown at the top of the post).
