What time is it? (um, Game Stratagyst came in the mail time?) (um, Test Realm Time?) um . . . ?

It's pack-a-palooza time!

Great timing on behalf of KingsIsle! Just as I'm receiving my new Game Strategyst magazine with an article all about the packs in the game, what happens in the spiral? The Raven's Hoard Pack is released. WOOT!

Although MOG is dead, Game Strategyst is still alive and kicking, and it's a fun issue with articles on Kirby's Return to Dreamland, Webkins, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Club Penguin, Max and the Magic Marker, Free Realms, Super Mario Island, Poptropica, and just a ton more . . . including Wizard101 of course with an article from me.

The code in the magazine this time is one that gives you two random packs from their collection of packs. Let me know what packs you get from the code! I got the Hand of Doom Pack and a Mega-Snack Pack.


The Raven's Hoard pack that is in game now is wild. I'm sure you've heard all about it, but there's a two-seater blood raven mount hidden in it that's amazing! Bailey got to take a ride in one.

I'm still hunting for my own. This pack has a Grizzleheim/coldness/bird theme going to it. From feather wall hangings, to frozen Grizzleheim warriors, to crow pets of every kind (including the exclusive black crow derby pet). There's a whole list of things over on the Central wiki. More info on the packs here.

Another main want from the Raven's Hoard Pack is the bow! This weapon is AWESOME! That's another one I'm hunting for still. I got the two-handed axe and a full set of gear, but no bow yet. hehe . . . check me out in my raven's hoard pack outfit.

It looks like I've got owl eyebrows.


And LAST BUT NOT LEAST . . . the test realm is back online again and this time you can test out a ton of transformations (20 of 'em to be exact!).

Angus is NOT liking the change to starter wands at all, but whatever. That wand full of one pip damage spells from all the different classes is what made him get past Meowiarty. Recommendation? Start your Angus Unicornpants character before the test realm goes live!

There's all kind of exciting things going on in the Spiral this week. :)

Happy Dueling!

But it makes sense though.. Unicorn Way will be significantly harder since we'll be more focused on using our own school's 1 pip attack and the wand to finish them off or whatever. I don't really know why they're making this kind of change though.. :P

Wow, it can carry 2 people?!?! That's sweet! How do you get the two people on though? Do you have to press something or what?

You get the OLD Starter wand after you defeat Rattlebones... But I guess if you're considering that as a 'change of equipment' yeah, *shrug* sorry.
