Spell of the Week -- Medusa

QUICK! HOLD UP YOUR SHIELDS OF QUICKSILVER!

Medusa


The Spell of the Week this week is definitely a spell to be feared. When a Myth caster isn't knocking you around with two hits in the same attack, they'll love stunning you for two rounds with a Medusa! And if two rounds of being stunned wasn't enough, the single target damage on this spell is definitely respectable as well. Seeing a Myth wizard with a full row of pips means either you're up for a Medusa or a Basilisk, right?

The spell's subject matter is great too. Whenever I think of Medusa, I can't help but think about the awesome claymation of the Original Clash of the Titans. That film started a lot of love for mythology when I was a kid! And, hey, it's very cool that Wizard101's Myth school keeps Medusa alive and writhing in our minds. /shiver

The readers of the Friendly necromancer had some great screenshots to share this week and also played up the power of her stony gaze, her scary beauty, and her snake-like ways! Check em out (click to make them bigger):

Seth Dragonhunter:
Seth adds a quote from Wikipedia:"Here is a story about "Medusa" and a picture of her head along with my SOTW


In Greek mythology Medusa (Greek: Μέδουσα (Médousa), "guardian, protectress")[1]was a Gorgon, a chthonic monster, and a daughter of Phorcys and Ceto.[2] The authorHyginus, (Fabulae, 151) interposes a generation and gives Medusa another chthonic pair as parents.[3] Gazing directly upon her would turn onlookers to stone. She was beheaded by the hero Perseus, who thereafter used her head as a weapon[4] until he gave it to the goddess Athena to place on her shield. In classical antiquity the image of the head of Medusa appeared in the evil-averting device known as the Gorgoneion."
