What's the purpose of Sir Reginald Baxby?

I have a question here from Blaze:
Hey Friendly, its Blaze again, and I just want to know about that Zebra in Wizard 101 named Sir Reginald Baxby. WHAT DOES HE DO IN THE GAME!?!? Does he just sit there to look pretty or what???


mm, I dunno, but Myrna agrees with you!


I actually have a few good quotes for you.

The first comes from this thread from the forums on the main Wizard101 site:

"Sir Reginald Baxby is stoically awaiting orders from Merle Ambrose.
Until then, he watches over the streets of some of the worlds of the Spiral to ensure they are safe for all young Wizards"

The second comes from this other thread from the forums on the main Wizard101 site:

"During our Beta period . . . Baxby had a quest. Since then, that quest was turned into simple badge rewards for defeating large numbers of the same creature."

So basically, this is an NPC that they left in the game because he looks cool, and who knows, at some point maybe they'll make him actually do something more than just look cool. I liked my idea of adding rewards for badges that I talked about here. That would be an excellent reason to dust him off IMHO!

Hope that helps!

Happy Dueling!

Maybe you need to earn all creature killer badges(which might take forever)and he might give a quest about a rare creature to hunter. Otherwise, he's useless.

I was wondering about that myself actually. And maybe what witchwarrior said above me. "Maybe he gives you a quest when you earn the top badges." Like the Undead.

He's in Wizard City, Krokotopia, and Marleybone. And he NEVER gives you quests. What is the purpose of him!?!

I can help. I conducted an interview with Sir Reginald Baxby, the guy who fixes bugs at KingsIsle. It is posted on wizard101central. Here is the link.

It is a stickied thread, meaning a moderator made it appear first on the forums because it's useful. It answers many people's questions. People also leave questions on the forum that Sir Reginald Baxby answers! I know it's useful.

He MIGHT be a part of the new expansion! Zebras are African. Right? :)
