Great Spiral--Housing Item of the Day

Sierra has a question!
I've been looking at some pretty cool housing bug videos on YouTube lately, and once or twice I spotted a design painted on the floor that looks like the sigils inside the Ravenwood school towers. Are these carpets or something you can craft? Where can I get one for my house? Hopefully you can shed some light on this mystery.

This vid is from Noah Anglebreaker's house, showing a staircase of 19 books, but it's the floor symbol I really want.
Interesting. I had no idea, so I contacted Denys backchannel at Wizard101 Central and asked him if he would be so kind as to pass on the information.

This was his response: You can get that from Orin In Crucible, In the Tower, its hard to get. Good Luck Getting it if someone will :)!

Awesome. So now that I had the clue "Orin," I could do some research on my own housing item list and TADA . . . I have the name of this awesome piece of furniture: The Great Spiral. What's also good news for us is that all of Orin's drops also drop from Bael Emberlight in the Crystal Grove. There's no need to farm the tower at all. WOOT!

So I hopped on to my characters and started farming Bael.

(Ouch Ice Kraken!)

And for once I was luckier than my kids characters and got the drop after about an hour of farming Bael. WOOT!

So, thanks for the question, Sierra! Thanks for the info Denys! Thanks Bael for the Housing Item of the Day!

Happy Dueling!

Awesome! I've been wondering about that for a long time. Most people said they got lucky and found it in the bazaar.

Sierra Starsong said...

I love farming for cool housing stuff. Thanks for finding this one!

Wow I did not know it was so rare, I got that the first time i fought the guy. I have it in my death room, this big room all dark and creepy, with the death desk, and that alter with candles, and death banners, shields, and plagues. And also a bunch of lighting up moo shu symbol things. :)

Correct me if I'm not right, but, um, I've bought this from the Bazaar before and it's called the Great Spiral, I think. If it's available to be auctioned, is it really all that rare? Idk... Anyway, I just wanted to say that it IS available from the Bazaar.

Kestrel BOUGHT it at the bazaar and it is AWESOME!

Tesh said...

Very, very cool. *puts on shopping list*

Kestrel Shadowthistle said...

Most people said they got lucky and found it at the bazaar as in - me? Yep, one of those is in my basement, and makes a star appearance in my new (stupid) music video that I have to redo.

@Jessica: cool

@Sierra: you betcha

@Mike: Lucky!

@Dustin: Well it's not like there are 99 of them stocked up in the bazaar like the green silk komono. It's still pretty uncommon.

@Alex: lucky!

@Tesh: nice.

@Kestrel: Yeah, I think people farming for the death deck probably don't care for the housing item when it pops up, so they sell it off. I didn't notice if it was a "limit 1" item, but if it is, I could see selling it so you could get it again. It probably sells for a lot of money since it is popular and uncommon.
