Wizard101 Guest Poster -Alric Mist


I am all too familiar with the many hobbies a wizard can do after they've finished their last quest, being both PvP and Pet Warlords as well as catching every fish available so far. Recently however, I have found decorating to be something truly magical, offering a sense of accomplishment and joy that, for me, has yet to be rivaled. 


Early this month i finished work on my very first house, a Red Farm Barn, and in the months that it took to complete, I feel as if going through the trials and hassles of decorating have truly inspired me to become a more creative and thought provoking person. For a very long time i never cared to delve into decorating, as I figured it most likely wasn't an enjoyable and probably mundane undertaking. My brother, Edward Mist, has always been a big fan of decorating, and he never fails to impress me with his dedication as well as his ingenuity. Eventually this inspired me to give decorating a shot, as I realized there had to be something to love in it. After my brother taught me a few box and rug glitches i set off on my own to learn what it takes to be a truly great decorator. Using my Farm Barn, which I initially bought for solely gardening purposes, I used a nice wide open area to create a miniature village, using primarily Zafarian decor. When I completed it i felt a very strong sense of pride and fulfillment. It was then that I knew that I needed to give decorating a serious chance, and before i knew it, my garden was evicted and i was a full-time decorator.


After months of hard work and experimentation, i finally completed my first home and decorating became my new favorite past-time, and with my new house being a Celestial Observatory, I hope to go more grand and ambitious than I ever thought possible before. This entire experience has taught me something extremely valuable, that passion and enjoyment go hand in hand, and so long as you have a passion for what you are doing, you will find joy in what you do and will always strive to ascend to a higher place than where you started and perhaps even discover new passion along the way.  You can find my house under the decorated category in Castle Tours, look for Red Farm Barn by Alric Mist, and I do implore you to make a visit, as sharing the culmination of this grand experience with my fellow decorators is a huge part of what makes decorating such a pleasant and rewarding adventure :)

Pirate101 Sept 2014 Update Brings a Special Surprise.


Along with the September game updates Pirate101 introduces  the new Grizzly Beast Pack! This is one pack I have been waiting for because it brings with it my favorite looking pet I have been asking for since I saw it in the pet morphing tent. The Heck Kitty fits me so well , after all I am the black cat of the entire Pirate101 fleet. ;)


Not only does this pack bring new and exciting pets but new companions too? There are Beastmaster companions for every class.  Beastmasters can summon the new pets into battle with you and I was so excited to receive the Witchdoctor companion.  Khord summons the heck kitty,  I was so excited the first time I saw the kitty summoned and boy can this kitty fight. I couldn't wait for him to summon the kitty again.



Did I mention this was a pack? The grizzly pack also comes with furniture! Not only furniture but pet furniture! All the tents around Circus Maximus, pet toys, interactive pet items, pet food dishes and cat trees/scratchers. There's even habitrail set up,  these pieces connect together. I do wish the pets went inside them though.

This pack even comes with energy gear, check out the yarn ball I have equipped. This update also brings: new masks , face paintings, hair styles and  so much more to the crown shop. Don't forget to check out the vendors you never know what new and exciting accessories they may have. See ya in the Skyways!

Happy Wizard101 6th Year Celebration!!

Wow another year has flown by, it seems like only yesterday I took my very first steps into Firecat Alley, I say Firecat Alley because that is where I decided that this game was going to played for a very long time. Was I kidding? Nope! Wizard101 has taken on speed and has never stopped growing.

 Throughout the years I have met some really awesome friends, yes you! I have said hello and  see ya soon to many players. I've watched Wizard101 branch out to Pirate101. Watched a community manager become what she wanted to be, a Game Designer. We welcomed new Community managers, Leala and Tom "The dynamic duo". I'm so honored to be a part of this growing world of Wizard101. May you have many more years to come.



When housing came out in 2009 it was all over for me, from my very first Royal Playhouse to the new Build a Castles. I have been a housing Wizard ever since. I remember the very first time I decorated I placed things around and made a Birthday party house. It wasn't the best but I thought it was a grand house. Now look at us Wizards, we're building our own houses! Did you get your Birthday Gala Gazebo for Wizard101 6th year celebration?



Wizard101 has kicked off this 6th year celebration early with the free Birthday Gala Gazebo, shown above.  All the birthday decorations, even those fun to find presents, all over the Spiral. If you're looking for a guide look HERE Wizard101 Central as a pretty good one. So go check out all the decorations in Wizard City commons and watch the Phoenix fly around to welcome Wizard101 into another year! To find out more about Wizard101's 6th year celebration check out Wizard101. See ya in the Spiral!

Pirate101 Test Realm-Arrgust 2014


The Tower of Moo Manchu or as I like to call it Mad Cow Tower. This is a extremely fun though very challenging tower. Fun dialogue with even a part where they make you want to be evil. Warning Don't drink the elixir. I sure wanted to though. The group I was with Chrissy ,Alyssa and myself. I think we has a blast of a good time. Some really great drops from this tower,  from a mask (posted below) to corrupted pets , furniture even a Musketeer weapon I wish I could use. I can sure stitch it to a lower level though.
New earrings and glasses make for more unique pirates , I do wish we could wear like a gold loop and a eye patch together I feel these should be separate from the eye patch. I would love to wear both.
Flag changing every get tired of your ship flag? Well now you can change it and see what your companions will look like. I know some pirate were not liking their colors after they made their awesome flags.
Last up  Cool ranch has a way to easy travel from one skyway to another. Just take a ride on the stage coach to get where you want to go.. Pretty cool right? All these updates and more can be read about at Pirate101 Update Notes
