Golden W101 Prize Raffle!!

Good morning my fine friends!

I've got 15 awesome St. Patrick's Day themed codes to give away to the readers of The Friendly Necromancer courtesy of KingsIsle . . . those crazy people who keep me employed. :)

If you are one of the winners of the code, you'll get a huge helping of golden themed items from Wizard101:
• Gold Kirin Mount (Permanent)
• Gold Wyvern Mount (Permanent)
• Gold Pieces (50000)
• Crowns (5000)
• Sun Palace House
• Hatching Elixir
• Additional Castle Elixir
• Major Gold Elixir

Plus one of the following four pets (at random):
• Death Leprechaun
• Myth Leprechaun
• Leprechaun
• Lucky Leprechaun

It's truly an amazing code! You must enter through the Rafflecopter widget below and leave me a blog comment to let me know your favorite golden item in either Wizard101 or Pirate101. It's as easy as that, and then I'll choose 15 random winners after the contest ends on 26 March.

There are some restrictions you should be aware of:
• If the winner has the max number of houses already, they will need to use the Additional Castle Elixir before redeeming the house from their Gift Window.
• ALL of these codes expire at the end of April 2013.
• One code can be redeemed per account. Sadly this means if you win a code, and an additional code from another site giving away one of these same golden prizes, you can only redeem one of the codes on your account. If this should happen, however, you're free to redeem the second code on another account, give it to a friend or forfeit. No substitutions or recompense.

May the luck of the Irish be with you!

Happy Dueling

Catching up -- P101 and DCUO


I don't want to bore you guys too much with a catching up post, but now I'm going to bore you guys with a catching up post. hehe.

Obviously I've been thinking about Pirate101 daily. I think about all our players and how they're doing in game. I love hearing about what level everyone has obtained and how they love and hate certain companions. I haven't run into a companion I despise yet! And that's probably because I'm yet to play with Nurse Quinn and the Hermit Crab from what I'm understanding. ;)

Bad Pedro Pace is now in MooShu

He's actually 44 right now. I just finished up Khotan and TOTALLY THREATENED THE CHICKEN!

I love that instance. It was surprisingly brutal for me as a privateer as well. All those first strike mobs made me change my line up to musketeers for a good portion of the dungeon. For General Tso's battle, it was a matter of choosing companions I thought could outlast the onslaught and bring a lot of single target damage to one of the mobs standing guard in front of the chicken. Can I just say how much I love my invincibility bubble and valor buffs in that fight? I love them. 'Nuff said.

Outside of Pirate101, I've been playing a lot of DC Universe Online with my Sunday Night static group. You can read more about our adventures on West Karana if you're interested. (As I've said before, DCUO isn't a kids' game . . . but it sure reminds me of the kid inside who loved to run down to the local 7-11 and buy comic books with my friends)

My character just earned his Tier1 armor wings yesterday!

I was pretty psyched about it. hehe.

I do hope that whatever you're doing, you're happy and having fun! Feel free to leave me a comment or a link to a blog post to let me know what you've been up to in the gaming world. I may host another contest here pretty soon and Uber Wife and I have been talking about a Happy Dueling podcast come back! Maybe, just maybe . . .

Happy dueling!

Avenging Fossil!


You thought I wasn't even playing Wizard101 right now, didn't you?

It's all Pirate101 this and Pirate101 that . . . WRONG!


I'm just super happy about getting my new Level 88 spell, that's all . . . and it comes straight out of Malistaire's old spellbook, yo. Check it out!

Which makes one wonder . . . hmmm . . . why didn't Malistaire cast the Avenging Fossil on me back in Dragonspyre instead of wave after wave of vampires. ;) hehe. Seriously though, Angus is super happy he did not cast that spell, but man, wouldn't an updated harder version of Malistaire rock?

I digress.

I didn't run into too much trouble picking this spell up this morning. It just took a bit of time to chew through Tezomoc Stone Singer and his two tower shield casting ice minions.


It's a pretty cool spell with a nice single target attack combined with a DoT spell for all other enemies. Not bad! I know a lot of death wizards keep hoping for more AoE life drain spells, but I'll take the Avenging Fossil. Besides, I gotta say I was happy to see it looked like a Stegosaurus. #1 FAVORITE DINOSAUR EVA! Right after this guy . . .

Happy dueling!
