Things have been pretty quiet around here at TFN. I've been here though, just lurking in the shadows -- it's kind of what necromancers do. ;)
I've been sitting at level 94-95 in Wizard101 for what feels like a year. (Hold that thought *goes to check on how long it's been since writing about leveling in Wizard101*) Looks like the last I wrote about Thomas Lionblood dinging 93 in Wizard101 was back in June. WOW! Time flies.
I just wanted to let you know I was here and playing lately. In fact, I just dinged 96 this morning and got my hands on some new shadow magic.
Yup, just four more levels to go!
So, enough about me, let's talk KingsIsle! Everything you want to know about the upcoming updates to the game can be found here on the Test Realm notes page.
In a nutshell, you've got four new dungeons coming out, equipment sets, member benefits, combat idle, a ton of fixes and improvements and . . . the main reason I want to get to level 100 . . . Shadow-enhanced spells!
WOOT! (Special thanks to Leala for filming that spells video.)
As long as I'm sharing videos, you should also know there were two new bundles that hit the scene in Walmart and GameStop.
First up, the Mystic Fishing Bundle
Next, the Evergreen Bundle:
The Bundle videos were written, filmed and produced by yours truly. Big hand goes to Damon, our Video Guru for piecing it all together and putting on the polish, and also to TJ for getting the perfect voice over artists for the job.
Of course, the real applause needs to go to the staff that creates these awesome items, houses, pets, and all that. The Wizard101 team did a really great job on all those, don't you think?
Anyway, every day there's something new going on at KingsIsle and we have a lot of fun stuff in the works for the fans. December is ALWAYS a cool (as in frosty cold and awesome) month for our games.
I'll be slipping back into the shadows now. :)
I'll let you know if I ding again and get those Shadow-enhanced spells once they make their way to the live game. That Castle Darkmoor looks tough and fun!!
