Q: What do Kingsisle Employees give each other for Christmas?
A: White Helephant gifts!
Ahhh, the Helephant card. I remember the first time I saw it cast. I was a lowly necromancer running around in Marleybone when a fire wizard who was higher level than me accidentally got sucked into battle. (The sidewalks in Marleybone used to be a lot trickier than they are now.) He pulled out the Helephant card, and I was definitely wow'd.
It's a six pip Fire School spell that most Wizards obtain at 42nd level. There are treasure card versions around, but it's hard to obtain. You can also cast this when in the Draconian Polymorph (as one of my readers used).
I asked the readers of The Friendly Necromancer to supply me with a screenshot of them casting a Helephant up, and got some awesome responses. Check 'em out below!
He adds: "You must like Fire spells, that's 3/4 Spells of the Week that're Fire! Between heartburn, and back pain, this Helephant seems to be having some real trouble."
Almost true! The Mander Blast was technically a balance spell, but you're right heheh. I do like the look of the fire-y spells.
Ebony adds: "I was battling The elf prince since my friend lended meh this helephant treasure! I wish ya like it!"
Thanks! I do! And thanks to your friend too. :)
Ben adds, "I don't even have a fire wizard yet, and I don't have a secondary school of fire, AND those treasures are pretty hard to find! But I managed to snipe a couple from the bazaar! I wanted to try some with captions, and some with just the spell itself to capture the excitement and such, y'know what I mean?"
I know what you mean! :) Thanks!
Nathan adds, "I really hope you like it and again Happy holidays :D !!!!!!!!"
Thanks, Nathan! I do and back atcha!
Flash says, "I have my helephant pet on as well as the blacktusk transformation on"
OH yeah! I see that . . . nice, it's a helephant spell while wearing a helephant pet in elephant tranformation casting on a helephant. That's freaking awesome! LOL!
Ryan adds, "Here you go! Since I didn't have the original spell, I just polymorphed into a Draconian and used it. Looks like the polymorphs I trained are starting to come in handy! How's the Legendary Artisan quest going? When I realized that I needed the reagents for 4 conga drums, it wasn't very fun, as I had only gotten the required amount for 2 drums. Which meant that I had to fight over 32 more fossils and 8 more pieces of aether. All in all though, it wasn't too bad because I started out with around 109,000 gold from selling all that Zafaria gear"
Awesome! I'm very close to finishing that legendary Artisan quest, but like you . . . I'm stuck on fossil collecting. I'll have them soon enough though. :) thanks for the entry!
Tara Adds, "Heya Friendalee! I got the picture of me casting the Helephant! (I almost died in that battle cause I had to discard here and there to find the spell, as you can tell by how much health I had left in the picture haha) So here you go :p. Also I just wanted to ask you one thing, is email@example.com (with dots between) and firstname.lastname@example.org (without the dots between) the same emails? This might seem like a dumb question but i'm just double checking O:"
EEK! YOU DIED FOR THE CAUSE OF THE HELEPHANT! :) You know, good question about the e-mail. I seem to be receiving both, so I guess the periods don't matter. /shrug
Hmmm, why *would* you use my storm trap? hmmm? ;p
Thanks everyone for the great Helephant pictures! love them!
I Can't Wait Until Christmas!
