Wizard101 Test Realm Teaser

KingsIsle has provided Wizard101 fansites with "before" and "after" snippets, showing a very small glimpse at some of Renee Wooften and her crew's handiwork in Wizard City.

Here's the teaser I was given, depicting Elik's Edge with new textures:

I was told the Test Realm is coming soon, so keep an eye out for more teasers on other Wizard101 fansites!

Wizard101 Makeover Shop Sneak Peek

In this month's KingsIsle Live Wizard101 segment, we learned that a long anticipated feature is currently in early stages of development: the Magic Mirror Makeover Shopkeeper!

The Magic Mirror will set up a brand new shop, most likely located in the Wizard City Shopping District, where Wizards will be able to change:
  • Hairstyles (new ones are coming);
  • Hair color (including new, unreleased colors);
  • Skin tone;
  • Faces;
  • Eye color;
  • One more thing, yet to be revealed.
Of course, the Makeover Shopkeeper will charge you Crowns to apply all these changes. And I'm guessing the unrevealed edit that we'll be able to make to our Wizards is something like accessories; Pirates have it, so it would be really cool if they carried this over to Wizard101.
While no date has been fixed for the launch of this content and seeing as it still is in development, we might have to wait for the Fall update or even until early 2019.

New Pre-Paid Cards for Wizard101 & Pirate101

On the last episode of KingsIsle Live, we learned that a new type of pre-paid card is beeing marketed and that currently only Kroger stores of the Northern Texas area have them for sale. KingsIsle has listed the stores where these cards are available on their recent blog post.

While we have little information on these pre-paid cards, we do know that Wizards will be granted a new type of pet jewel that, according to KingsIsle, "has two talents and several other items (like an energy elixir and items for Pirate101). This pet jewel also gives your pet an aura. The type of jewel you get will depend on the month of the year in which you redeem it." Similarly, Pirates will receive a new type of totem power that increases the power of your pets in battle. These can be recognized by their new aura in combat! All cards will also come with Crowns, as usual.
