This is me, doing another Wizard101 post. And this is my recent reaction to making it to level 15:
OMG OMG OMG.
So, update first.
After playing a few free levels and deciding we liked the game enough…me and Lyss upgraded. On the family plan we saved a couple bucks, making it I think…$13/month for the both of us combined. Now I told you guys before that the free plan has plenty to offer, which it does – you can still have a LOT of fun for free. But the upgrade? BEYOND AWESOME. You get to visit SO many more beautiful places, the bad guys get even more badass, the clothes get cooler, the quests become more fulfilling; with better rewards and more in-game gold to buy fun things with, and the ultimate best – when you get to level 15, you are able to choose from a selection of wicked cool houses to live in. WICKED COOL. Me and Lyss had such a BLAST moving into our new homes, I can’t even tell you. We have a blast every time we play, really. Doing battles together is kickass (Lyss has gotten so good at them!), going shopping together is too much fun (Lyss is already a pro at buying and styling her clothes without me), and just exploring as we “ooo” and “ahhh” at the scenery is quite peaceful. We even play hide and seek from time to time. It’s especially fun getting surprised with new places to go as you complete each quest. Like recently, one of my quests opened up a new Egyptian world I could venture into, called “Krokotopia”. And let me tell you, I was like an little kid running around that place. As a huge fan of ancient Egypt, it was a little slice of heaven. From the pyramids to the inside and outside of temples…from the creatures right down to the background music. VIBIN’. I’m always excited to find out what’s next!
More screen-shots? Don’t mind if I do!
^ Us in the shopping district – me with my firecat pet and Lyss with her cyclops pet. We actually picked out our clothes separately on our own,
then walked out of the store realizing we chose the same thing…just used different colors. Haha.
^ One of the places in Krokotopia. The screen-shot doesn’t even do it justice!
^ Simply amusing. Walking through the Commons, me and Lyss noticed a whole group of players that got together
and used the “Evil Snowman” transformation on themselves.
^ Just coming through the portal to my home!
^ View of the front of my home…which actually rose out of the water. Awesome.
^ One of the rooms inside my home.
^ Lyssa’s home portal! And her on her spiffy mount.
^ View from the front of Lyssa’s house…which is so much better in motion.
^ One of the rooms in her house. That’s Lyss using the Fire Elf transformation.
Now, while I have nothing but raves for Wizard101, it is because of that, that I must also give a warning. If you upgrade, you better have some self control, or you will lose yourself to the game. Seriously…watch ya’self. I don’t care how old you are or how geeky you think this post it, Wizard101 is like crack and if you start up…you WILL get addicted. QUICKLY. You also WILL want to give them more money. Sure, you don’t HAVE to buy that enchanted broomstick, that beautiful stallion mount to ride around on, or that amazing house made of fire to live in and decorate to your heart’s content….but you want to. Oh yes, you want to. And sure, you think it’s ridiculous to buy something computer-generated with your real, hard earned cash….but you’ll change your mind. Oh yes, you will. And no WAY would you let yourself spend hours decorating that new computer-generated house you just bought…but then wait, where did time go?
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
