Yup, I'm 60! WOOTS!
Wow level 58 and 59 did not last long. I guess when those final instances are handing out 25k - 35k experience, it goes quite fast. O.O (It makes me want to drag along a level 1 through those instances just to see how far they get power leveled.)
I think my favorite area in Celestia so far has got to be Queen Calypso's ship. I really (times five) really want one of the Celestia houses to end up looking like Calypso's ship on the outside. OH MAN THAT WOULD ROCK! I love swimming around in here.
It looks like I'm about to do a spin underwater in that picture. whoosh! I digress.
Ok, so I finished the game at level 59, and had to go back to a few side quests to ding 60. My final ding for Thomas happened through one of Vendrel's side quests.
Thanks Vendrel! You're the best alien EVER. (Remember when I used to blame everything on Aliens? No? How about now? Makes a guy wonder . . . :-))
Anyway, I had an uncomfortable run-in with Morganthe yesterday.
There was that whole "coward" thing and the whole "child" thing going on. UNCOMFORTABLEEEEE! Why does she have to be such an evil witch about it all. sheesh.
I had a good time working through the trial of spheres. Each of the bosses gives you a little clue about how they cheat. You may not want to read the rest of this post if you want to figure them out yourself. It's not too difficult though, I'm sure you'll get it.
What Astraeus is hinting to here is that he summons minions. The trick here is that you need to finish off the minions first before focusing on Astraeus; otherwise, you're going to keep running up against his awesome 90% tower shield spell. Take the minions out, and then you'll have a much easier time with Astraeus.
What Ptolemos is hinting to here is that you should all put extra charms on your characters before attacking him, i.e., blade up and blade some more or else he'll keep a tower shield up on himself.
Well, Mithraya apparently doesn't want to be cool and poetic with her hint . . . she just goes right ahead and tells you, doesn't she? That made me LOL! It's like she started out strong "The clouds shall part . . . " Yeah, that sounds poetic enough. And then she just blows it, "only when blades and traps are present." Yeah. Way to finish strong with the clue there, Mithraya.
So, wait, you're telling me I need to put blades on myself and traps on Mithraya? yes, yes that is exactly what she's telling you. I mean, how many NPCs in Wizard101 tell you exactly how to defeat them? one: Mithraya. ;-)
So, what's left now?
Well, I need to farm up some legendary gear so I can finally get out of my grandmaster gear and then DO IT AGAIN with all my alts! I'll have more videos, strategies, and hints coming your way in the future.
Until then, HAPPY DUELING!
