The Four Dungeons Go Live


The Fall Update is finally Live and it adds four exciting new dungeons, powerful Shadow-Enhanced Spells, Equipment Sets to help you manage your gear, new Member benefits, Combat Idle, a new mini-game known as Catch a Key and more!

New Dungeons
New challenges await you, throughout the Spiral! Four new dungeons are available to explore, full of mystery, exciting puzzles and epic rewards.
  • Wizards of Level 25 or higher should visit Sergeant Talbot in the Oasis of Krokotopia to help him find a missing member of an expedition, who was lost while on a mission to Mooshu. 
  • Wizards of Level 40 or higher need to visit Private Kinchley in the Cathedral of Regent's Square in Marleybone. The Spiral's greatest detective, Sherlock Bones, needs your help to investigate a crisis in Barkingham Palace!
  • Wizards of Level 60 or higher will need to speak to Alhazred in the Balance Classroom at the Krokosphinx to assist with the delivery of a mysterious (and possibly dangerous) package. 
  • The greatest of challenges await Wizards of Level 100. Dworgyn, in Nightside of Wizard City, will guide you in accepting the challenge of a great (and familiar) foe within Castle Darkmoor!

Crowns players can choose to rent a single dungeon for six hours, or purchase that single dungeon and own it forever on that account. The six hour zone rental is priced at 495 Crowns per Dungeon.

Shadow-Enhanced Spells
Wizards that have reached Level 100 and have completed the quest "Walpurgisnacht", within the Castle Darkmoor dungeon, will learn a new spell for their School! These powerful new Shadow-Enhanced Spells cost a combination of 5 pips plus 1 Shadow pip to cast. Find out what they do here.


Catch a Key, New Pets and Wands
Silver Chests across the Spiral will have a new mini-game that you can play to unlock them! When you open the chest you may either get to play Shock a Lock or the new game, Catch a Key. For Test Realm, all Silver Chests will play Catch a Key, so you can try out the new game!

Remember the Beckett Promotional Wands? They are making a comeback as drops from the new dungeons, but in different colors! Check them out here.

This update also brings a lot of new awesome pets and mount! There are several in the Crown Shop, including the Dapper Corgi Pet and Royal Ibis Pet, and the Himoolayan Yak Mount. Duelist101 has a list of most new pets here.

Equipment Sets and Member Benefits
Changing your gear for questing, boss battles, pvp or even pet training just got easier! The new Equipment Sets feature allows you to save and quickly switch between sets of equipped items. Know more about this new feature here.

There are now additional benefits to being a Member of Wizard101! Members have access to new, exclusive emotes (including new dances), a larger friends list of up to 150 and a larger backpack that holds up to 150 items. There might also be some additional, limited-time surprise benefits for members!

Combat Idle and Spell Tweaks
If a player does not choose to cast a spell or pass in battle for 2 rounds, they will be considered idle. The 30 second countdown timer will not wait for idle players and will automatically pass their turn. Idle players will not be able to choose an action in combat until they choose to return to battle in the pop-up window.

Most craftable spells, also dropped by the Loremaster, have been improved! You can see the changes here.

Housing, Crafting, Fishing and Gardening
Several updates are being made to Housing, Crafting, Fishing and Gardening, including:
  • Craftable Mega Snacks;
  • New Teleport Tapestries;
  • New Fish and Badges;
  • Lockable Seeds and more!
I will be updating my Illustrated Guide to Teleport Tapestries very soon, but in the meantime you can read the full list of all changes coming to the game here.
