Catching up since Celestia? What'd Cole miss?

Got a question from a name I haven't heard in a while:
Hi Friendly,
Back in the day, I used to play Wizard101 a lot. Believe it or not, but I played since before the million player mark was hit. I was in the community, listening to Ravenwood Radio...And then minecraft ate my life.

Yesterday, I finally got Wizard101 to work on my new computer (a Mac, which doesn't normally play the game without some super-technical wizardry). So, I'm wondering what has changed? The last update I played was Celestia...
Anyways, thanks for your help!

Wow! Cole Moontamer! Long time no see! I remember your Four Questions you sent a while back. :)

I hear you about Minecraft. It's amazingly fun and addictive. Great game. My kids and I play it together every once in a while . . . lately though they've been on a retro gaming kick and have been asking me to break out my Sega to play Sonic and Sonic 2. My son is hilarious, he's like, I've never seen Chuggaaconroy do a Let's Play on Sonic! If he did, that would be AMAZING!

Very cool that you've got an itch to play some Wizard101! As far as what you've missed since Celestia? Ummmm . . . let's see . . . without putting a ton of thought into it, the main two worlds you've missed would be Zafaria and Avalon. You're behind 20 levels, giddyup! (. . . and when I say giddyup, I mean HURRY because Azteca is going to be here soon and then you'll be 30 levels behind LOL!)

I'm not sure exactly when you cut out, but there have been around three side worlds that also came out:

1- Remember Selena Gomez in Wizard101? They took Crab Alley and added a new zone called Deep Warrens, and they made it kind of a playable side world (you can get a cool outfit by completing it . . . great little side world.)

2- Wintertusk. This was definitely a fun side world that kind of closed out the Grizzleheim story and tied in a lot of lore. The end fight is still one of the most fun in the game.

3- Wysteria. I totally dug finding out all about the rival Pigswick academy and unraveling that little side story. Fun times. For high level players, they added the Tower of the Helephant and it's not to be missed just for fun factor. One of my best memories would have been taking on Chester and his friends with Angus.

And then of course, there's always some little miscellaneous stuff:

- Housing games was a blast, and, uh, you've missed a lot of new lore packs. Just open up the crown shop window and you're caught up there LOL! ;)

- You've also missed out on two new pet games and Mega levels with pets! If you haven't been to the Pet Pavilion in a while, go forth and check out the new games!

- And of course, Pirate101 and me being hired by KingsIsle. WHEW! Come say hi in Pirate101!

Other than that . . . I don't know . . . I'm sure I've missed some stuff. Readers, if I've left out some important details, leave them in the comments below! :)

Thanks for the question and good to see you back!

Happy dueling
