Halloween is drawing you... Piano Man's Treat


Today is Hallow's Eve! The origin of Halloween is back in the ancient Celtic festival of Samhaim. 2,000 years ago, the Celts lived in today Ireland. They celebrated their new year on November 1st. It was when it marked the end of summer and the beginning of barren, dark winter, in which human deaths sprung. The Celts believed that on the night before their new year, October 31, that the line between life and death intersected. In other words, the ghosts would return to earth. The Celtic priests, or druids, could predict the future for people entirely depending on the natural world, these prophecies were vital in comforting and directing during the long, dark winter.

As a treat, I have something to scare you. Therefore, making it both a trick and a treat!

I received both Gold Wyvern AND Orange Fairy Wings in one pack.

I name thee "Mac n Cheese"! Oh, and I recently bought the Marleybone Manor on Superior Cody.

I can't believe you could get two dragonwings in dragon pack.

Try getting these on your alts, it works.

 (I actually now have 5 teleporters.)

The creatures of the dead must be favoring me because I've been representing them on my header...

Victoria Spiritblossom and Elijah Stormheart agrees, as well.

Ah, but the Reaper has ascended!

...espescially the Ringwraiths.

Can you see Phantom?

Ah, but Talon Lyrica if OFF TO THE STARS!

Ok, so I bought the Black Panther for 4500 crowns. I'm gonna call him...SWIFT.

"Wasn't it 5000 crowns?"

Yes, but it as a treat from KI, it is now 500 crowns less, which is 10% less.
I'm low on crowns. I'll go for the crown sale...

"There's my treat."

Oh, and Nightmare packs end on November 6, the day before the Epic bundles retires.

I'm on the Edge...

...of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment of truth,
I'm on the edge of glory,
And I'm hanging on a moment with you,
I'm on the edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
I'm on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment with you
I'm on the edge with you.

Lady Gaga Edge of Glory


So I saw someone on Elik's Edge. I added this person to so I could port to it. But how do you actually get to the edge? I don't know. Well, who IS Elik? Elik is the Bazaar sales person. Elik Silverfist. Does this might mean that the Bazaar used to be there, but got corrupted? Is it why that the Bazaar was added and moved to Olde Town?

Just a thought of something that flew by my mind...

Recently, I've been dying my clothes to light green and light blue. I seem to been having a phase on this color combination. It does look gallant.

Guardian Talon

Heroic Talon

Megabulous Talon

Royal Talon!
Which one do you like the best? Or do you like them all the same XD?

Guess who/what is retiring!

"Your grandparents?"

No. They are already retired.

It is unfortunately the Epic Bundle.

Unbelievable. But you know, soon these will all be rare items once it's gone. So that 1st generation Fierce Hound is quite the thing to wield.

"Good thing I got mine."

Well, in my perspective, I think KI is doing this because...
  • don't have enough money to make these
  • don't have enough people buying these
  • wanting money from their customers to buy them.
Although, they do want you guys to continue the fun and experience, something has to go. And you, the consumer, supports them to expand your own enjoyment.

Top 10 Favorite Wands

Hey, Spiralites! This day, I would like to share my top10 favorite wands. I'm pretty sure you guys have your faves, but I have my own. Wands include swords and staves as well. Now some of these wands I have and might not have. Let's take a look...

#10 Plague Oni's Sapphire Blade
Plague Sword.jpg

Dropped: Plague Oni
Level: 40+
Cards: 5 Frost Nova Item Cards
Pip: 1 power pip at start of battle

I like this because of it's curvy shape, as well as the telluric teal blue hilt and cobalt escence. I got this blasted sword through Plague's treacherous chest. In fact, it was my first sword and Mooshu wand. I used it all the way to mid-Celestia.

#9 Razorwire Wand
Razorwire Wand.png

Bought: Bazaar
Level: 5+
Cards: 7 Strike Item Cards
Pip: none

I was finding my Doctor Who sonic screwdriver wand, and the only closest thing I could I find was Wand of the Firewind... Until I found this at the Bazaar. I personally think this is really close to both the 10 and 11 Doctor's sonic screwdriver, Razorwire Wand. It's quite cheap actually, this wand.

#8 Staff of the Hopper
Staff of the Hopper.png

Bought/Dropped: Eggbert (Holiday NPC)/Malistaire and Meowiarty (only during Easter Holiday)
Level: 45+
Cards: 5 Major Crusade Item Cards
Pip: 1 power pip at start of battle

Man, I remember when I was a noob, and I REALLY wanted this staff. I was probably level 10 and it was around my birthday. (I wanted this for my birthday.) But I couldn't buy it because I wasn't level 45 (nor had any crowns). So I was to literally wait for a year just to get this staff. I actually got it this year this Easter. I really like the wraps around the staff itself.

#7 Umbra Blade
Wand Umbra Blade.jpg

Bought/Dropped: Beckett Massive issue 20
Level: Any
Cards: 5 Major Chill Item Cards
Pip: none

I was really proud of myself when I won this from a drawing contest at Valerian Nightbringer's. Apparently, he had the code to it, and I could choose if I wanted this or something else. I chose this. Now, this blade resides at my death wizard Cody Dragonrider. You have to admit, the sword looks really sweet. That dragonic hilt...

#6 Viridian Scepter

Bought/Dropped: Beckett Pokemon issue #125
Level: Any
Cards: 5 Major Life Fury Item Cards
Pip: none

I obtained this by actually a friend of mine that was obsessed with pokemon. He was generous enough to give me the code. So before some minor update this wand was really small, you could barely see it. But now it is visible. Now I really like that red bulb that the green ensnares it. As well as the escence and hook that is taking place.

#5 Cerulean Edge
Cerulean Edge.png

Bought/Dropped: Crown Shop/Malistaire
Level: 45+
Cards: 5 Mega Dark Blow Item Cards
Pip: 1 power pip at start of battle

I actually don't have this sword, but when it first came out, it was the best sword in the game. This sword has a nice "edge" to it. The gold blade itself reminds me of mac n cheese, all sparkly. It is actually like the Dragonblade Claw, but different colors. I didn't buy this because by the time I was 50+ I had a better staff, which brings us to the next nomination...

#4 Celestian Trident
Celestian Trident - Wizard 101

Bought/Dropped: Crown Shop
Level: 45+
Cards: 5 Mega Nova Item Cards
Pip: 1 power pip at start of battle

This is such a beautiful staff. I am fond of the teal swirl of energy leading up to the core tridential power. I feel like I am Poseidon when I wield this. It is also the first wand of Celestia. Again, an elegant wand.

#3 Saber of the Gallium Paladin
Saber of the Gallium Paladin.png

Bought/Dropped: Bazaar/Gallium Paladin
Level: 45+
Cards: 5 Major Heroic Hit Item Cards
Pip: 1 power pip at start of battle

Oooh, the design is very cool here like a saber. The spikes are just flourishing. I think you can notice that the cards it gives: Major Heroic Hit. How cool is it to have a card name which is your blog name? Exactly. Nicely brandished.

#2 Galvanic Blade
(Item) Galvanic Blade.png

Bought/Dropped: Bazaar/Othin Stormfather (Ravens)
Level: 45+
Cards: 5 Surge Item Cards
Pip: 1 power pip at start of battle

The sparkles of the this sword caught my eye. This sword; I used this during my Wintertusk adventures. I have carried this sword everywhere. The hilt is so edgy, and the whole this is just bedazzling. I stitched this with the Shivering Spear because that staff didn't quite match my outift, until this flew by.

#1 Bristleback's Thunderblade
Bristleback's Thunderblade.png

Bought/Dropped: Bazaar/Andor Bristleback
Level: 45+
Cards: 5 Major Surge Item Cards
Pip: 1 power pip at start of battle

Wow, a sword with my last name on it. Thunderblade. Funny thing is, I didn't buy this till this month. I didn't know much about this sword. But I just scrolled through the Bazaar and found this. The rigidness of this sword knows what I'm talking about. Despite the small hilt, it looks like an ice sword, but it actually has a counterpart: Longblade of the Homonculus. THAT is icier than this one. (This sword is storm.) As well as the Saber of the Gallium Paladin, the counterpart Redwind's Viridian Blade, which so full of life.

How did you like this fun filled post? I hoped youl liked it!

I knew it!

Wizard101 - Waterfront teaser

I actually predicted that there would be a Jungle/Amazon world.

From the picture up there, I see health wisps, meaning that this a battle area where those purple elephants are our enemies. We will be able to battle at the docks. You know, the new Temple of the Sun house, which comes from the bundle, is African-like, and the next world is supposed to be African, which it is. Will oni's roam the grounds again?? They seem to have a frown on their faces..

There is a cipher code on top. I wonder what it is. Spirals, fish, and giraffes appear in the code. In the background, those trees; it would be cool to have those as a furniture. And the tusks behind the elephants... IVORY FROM THE ELEHPHANTS?? I hope no one killed the elephants. (Those elephants don't have tusks!)

**EDIT** Kevin Battleblood and Katherine Light have deciphered the code! "Down in the depths"**EDIT** Gratz to them.

Well, anyway, the boat could be a future furniture. Now, I wonder what the name of this world might be called. Interesting. Can't wait for more!

No more packs for Piano Man

I cannot stress how much I hate the gambling packs. I really don't. I have gotten copies of a lot of pets from the Nightmare Pack. I have spent way too much time on this stupid pack. It's only been a couple days. Sure, some people love it, but enough is enough for me. In fact, I have, (I don't want to say this) not 2, not 3, but Nightmare mounts. I feel really guilty right now. I will stop even though I really want the tapestry and staff, I have stopped. No more for the Piano Man, no more. Roll the frivolous tape... (I feel so ashamed.)

3rd Golden Armored Skeleton

My last pack. There.

Well, I did get another Lightning Bat, another Red Ghost, and another Ghost Hound. I did get the Myth Banshee.
Even though I didn't get the staff. I've burned way too much crowns. I mean, what are the chances of getting 4 Nightmare mounts, but no staff??

I digress.
Don't waste your crowns. You can still try though, this pack is for a limited time. Oh, and try buying it on your alts. It worked for me.

Oh dear...

Arlen Dawneyes...

The Nightmare Pack

Our lowest price pack ever, just in time for Halloween!

Available for a limited time only!

The Nightmare is here, and the haunting Dark Wraith gear will have your Wizard eerily glowing through the Spiral. Full of Halloween pets and Halloween fun - the Nightmare Pack is ready for this spooky season! Check it out in the Crown Shop.


Sighs... Not another one... Why? Why?! Well, at least it 's 100 crowns less. I will be spending just a little. I must say, I have to stay strong, and suck up the fact that, you get what you get. The Nightmare mount looks like a skeletalized Pegasus, as well as the Bone dragon, which was skinned from a Wyvern. I really like the robe that the pack offers though. I love the spooky eyes. In fact, it is like a human ianthine spectre!
for my killer spectre pet!

Let's see what I received...

-Treasure Cards: Death Bat, Life Bat, Life Banshee, Red Banshee, Crow, Lady Blackhope, Black Widow
-Pets: 2 Golden Armored Skeleton, Lightning Bat, Grim, Scarab, Life Ghoul, Red Ghost, 2 Ianthine Spectre, Ghost Hound
-Gear: Halloween shoes,
-Miscallaneous: Pet snacks galore, reagents, uselss housing items, other useless treasure cards
-Mounts: Bat wings (permamant), 10 other 1-day mounts, and The Nightmare

Yes, I did get the mount. But only because I spent 10,000 crowns on this stupid pack, which is approxiametly 38 packs. I am now (almost) statisfied and now can stop. I said almost because I need the stupid staff. Victoria Spiritblossom actually has that staff. Lucky. I'd also would really like the Tapestry to Nightside. But, I will resist myself and not buy it even though it looks wicked cool.
Ghost hound!

I feel like the Friendly Necromancer. Note: I got this from the pack.

Wow, Grim Scarab and Red Ghost. That's a lot of gold in pet hatching.
Hat. If only it had health.

An overview.

Ianthine Spectre. Worth a lot of crowns.

That does look pretty epic.

Glitch, I was setting the ianthine spectre down, and it enlarged

I really like this outift. Heroic Picture of the Day!

Golden Armored Skeleton.

Yes, there, I have it, guilty.
I will name thee "Phantom".

Overview, again.

Higher of the Ground.
Overall, I have spent enough... But I really want the staff and tapestry :(. Oh, and if you haven't noticed, I received the mount on my storm wizard. I hopped on one character to another if my chance/luck differs, which it did. I got really good things from my death wizard: pets and permanant wings. I really hope that KI does not throw in another pack. I am guessing that the Gob-o-Lantern is extremely rare because no one I know has it as of now.
I see that the gear for Dragon's Hoard was generic and the housing was an overdose. The Wyvern Hoard was pet/gardening gear with way too many trees and seeds. But the Nightmare Hoard... There was not that many housing items, death gear with no health, sweet death pets, and a ton of random snacks. What can we expect the next time?
Other than that, the test realm is now live! Black Panther, Sunken Palace addtion, and housing signs! I'm pretty sure the next world will be out on December. There is a new bundle. It is actually Nick Lionrider's Zebrifica idea. There's a colossal rhino mount called Hornosaurus, which is a two passenger mount witha Giraffe pet, as well as a genie "Gorilla" that gives you something a day, which is in the massive house. (Gear included.) It is $39. And there's a Raven Bundle that will be released at Walmart including a gigantic Falcon mount, Night Hawk pet, and a gear. There is no house for this so it is $29.
Credit goes to Swordroll.
I got to return back to school, so bye for now! (Try to) Have fun with those packs! I might be getting either both the bundle/gift card or just one.
