FW: Wizard101 News Announcement from AGDC

NICE!!!


This just came across the wire from AGDC!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WIZARD101™ MOUNTS



The next major new content being developed by KingsIsle Entertainment for Wizard101 is a series of Wizard Mounts that provide a fun, fast, and stylish way of getting around. Many different types of Wizard Mounts will be available with more to come in the future. Initially, four will be introduced: Brooms, Horses, Cats, and Dragons!





Wizard Mounts may be rented for a day or a week. They may also be purchased permanently. The one and seven day rental gives Wizards a chance to try out the mount and decide which one they want to own permanently. One day rentals add a 20% movement speed increase. Seven day rentals and permanent purchases add a 40% movement speed increase.





One day rentals may be purchased with in-game gold. Seven day rentals and permanent Wizard Mounts may be purchased with in-game gold or Crowns. All mounts may be purchased at the Crown shop (player user interface that will be available in October) or Zeke.



Wizard Mounts are expected to launch in October 2009.



Wizard Mounts Fast Facts:
• Four types at release: Brooms, Horses, Cats, and Dragons!
• Available in a variety of appearances that favor male and female styles.
• May be rented for 1-day or 7-days, or purchased permanently.

I'm glad they'll be available for gold as well as Crowns. I miss the old buyable Crown gear.

I also saw mention of a Crown Shop - so maybe we'll be able to just buy Crowns with gold? That'd be cool, and also give us GM's something to do with all that extra cash.
