Wizard101 has launched the brand new Grand Tourney Gauntlet Bundle, which includes the Grand Tourney Arena, Dyeable Destrier Mount, Squirerel Pet, Valiant Jouster's Armor and Lance, and one month of membership or 5,000 crowns!
Wizard101 Grand Tourney Gauntlet Details
This new $39 card can be purchased at your local Wal-Mart! While some have had no trouble finding it, Wal-Mart is notorious for their poor stock of KingsIsle cards, and which stores have what seems to have no rhyme or reason. To help you out check out my bundle buyer's guide, which details the abilities of Wal-Mart employees beyond just checking their shelves.
The Grand Tourney Arena Guantlet
The main attraction on this new bundle is the Grand Tourney Arena itself. Inside, the dungeon is appropriately Avalon-themed, like the bundle, and involved a series of duels with knights from around the Spiral. You must help a badger named Sir Dunc win Duchess Sophia Blackthorn's favor, too!
The beautiful Avalon landscape and surrounding tents lend themselves perfectly to the tournament setting. For the most part, this dungeon drops only snacks, reagents, and the occasional jewel. But, if you're lucky, you'll snag some energy gear from one of the hoard packs!
Grand Tourney Gauntlet: All Gear and Wand Tiers
This bundle has some interesting gear. It seems to follow a new trend of offensive hats, defensive robes, and a mix of healing and critical on the boots. The wand, a lance, gives May Cast Bladestorm at the level 100+ tier. The outfit is interesting beyond that, though - it's not only a cool design, but the stats aren't bad. The robe is the first to give a 1,000 health boost, which is going to be a big increase for some wizards. Here's a video showing all of the wand and gear tiers.
I realize most will be interested in the top tier, so here's a quick shot of the level 100+ gear and wand.
The Squirerel and Dyeable Destrier Mount
Two irrefutable highlights of this bundle are the pet and mount. The Squirerel (Squire-rel) is more than just an adorable sidekick for your wizard. He can learn some powerful talents, too. I've noticed that the pets in these bundles have been getting better and better in terms of stats.
The unique thing about this mount is that it's the first that can be dyed. Take it over to the Wizard City Dye Shop and you can change the color of the horse's tournament-ready cover. I changed mine to black and white to match my outfit. I learned shortly after taking these images that the squirerel's outfit can be dyed any color, too.

Thanks for reading and see you in the Spiral!
