Tonight, a bunch of us ran into a new Wizard101 mount: the Arcus Cloud. Where did this strange mount come from, and where can we get one? I normally don't do quick looks like this but when everybody decided to stand on it, I figured I'd share my photos and video of when there were fewer people.
The Arcus Cloud: A One-Minute LookI put together a quick video of the Arcus cloud so that you can see how it moves and works - I also show the stat box for confirmation. Unfortunately, this is the spot where you come off the chariot, so many people surfaced here and have gone "AFK" (Away From Keyboard) with Luke, the owner of the mount.
(This video should be available in HD, but at the time of posting may still be processing. Feel free to watch it fullscreen for a better view)
How It MovesYou stand on this mount like the flying carpet, and the idle animation in like a jump, just like the carpet. I'm curious to see more about how it operates, and how it swims!
It shoots lightning bolts around, as well. If you turn down your particles, it might look like you're standing on almost nothing!
New to Come With Live Release?This guy has a full Hades set, so unless he's just an avid Test Realm farmer, he must be a KingsIsle worker testing this mount out. We already know that new hairstyles are coming - KI let that much slip. But will we also be seeing this brand new mount? Will others come with it?
The Test Realm has to be released next Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. I'm guessing we'll know soon enough! What do you think it is? Where does it come from?
