A treasure trove of new features has materialised in the Wizard 101 Spring update. We’re talking events, bosses, rewards, and improvements to combat and socialisation. It’s one heck of an overhaul, so don your finest robes and get ready to dive in.
Wizard 101 is a big fan of regular updates; it's now four times larger than it was back in 2008. Its proficiency at keeping things fresh is probably why it has lasted so long. Either that or magic, anyway. But this latest spring update has ushered in a list of new features long enough to fill the thickest of tomes.
"Wizard101 has always been about bringing players of all ages together to explore the worlds of the Spiral. We’re now enhancing the journey with exciting new boss fights that have awesome rewards and new ways for players to meet up." said Leah Ruben, KingsIsle Game Director.
There’s a lot to cover, so here’s the abridged version:
Speedier AOE Spells - shorter run times to help make battles more dynamic
New Skeleton Key Bosses - including King Borr of Grizzleheim and the Stay-Puffed Marshfellow in Karamelle
New Beastmoon Events - including Monster Mayhem & Hunts
New Beastforms - the Myth Ninja Pig (and minion) damage-dealer and Life Minotaur healer
New Event Rewards - shiny new gear, Tiered Wolf Warrior Weapons, new Spellments and Spellment recipes
