Blaugust Day 30: Pirate101 and Wizard101 Goals If You're Bored

Standard




I know that I'm not the only one that gets bored in game sometimes, so goals are quite helpful for people like us. I decided that I should list some. Maybe they'll help you to get a good start on tackling some things you could do in the game. I know that I completed some of the goals below while others I'm still working on.

For instance, I already have the One in a Million badge in Wizard101, but not Elixir Vitae. Although I really wanna work on getting that badge. I also got the Nefarious 5 badge in Pirate101. I'm so close to level 20 in gardening for Wizard101, like one more level away. But I did create a 700 Heck Kitty in Pirate101. But I really want to try to get that badge you get when you complete the Moo Manchu tower 100 times. Man, I'm falling extremely short on that goal. I'm probably halfway at this point.

But I won't give up. I will keep going and try my best to do all of the goals below. I hope you do too!


Wizard101 Goals

Earn the One In A Million damage badge

Earn the Elixir Vitae healing badge

Earn the Team Up badges

Collect All Wizard101 Tapestries

Blaugust Day 29: ASL Finger Spelling Quote

Standard


For a change, I decided to do something different this time. Something fun.

You know, I was born deaf due to my mother having German Measles while pregnant with me. Because of that, I'm very fluent in American Sign Language obviously. I grew up in a deaf school that taught me that I'm no different than anybody in the world. It's how I approach other people, like equals.

There is still a small stigma towards gamers. Sometimes people think that gamers are people who are stuck in their mom's basement. I never thought of gamers that way and I always tried to show others that gamers are normal people like them. My family is full of gamers so I was practically raised on games. My first console game was Nintendo. Gosh I loved Mario and Luigi when I was a kid. Even today, you can find my mother playing computer games. She likes those mystery ones where you got to figure out the puzzles and stuff. She's a Nancy Drew type of gamer.

Anyway, when I saw the above ASL Finger Spelling Quote picture, I thought immediately that it would be neat if you guys can figure this out. It's something fun and different. Hey, why not? After all, I know a lot of you are very interested in sign language. I thought this would be a neat way to start or even something for the experienced to do. Not only that, I loved the quote in it. 

If you do figure out what it says, please leave a comment on this blog post. Good luck!

Blaugust Day 28: Wizard101 & Pirate101 Bundle-A-Palooza

Standard

Today, Wizard101 and Pirate101 surprised us with Bundle-A-Palooza. Wizards and Pirates can save up to 25% or 50% off on all online bundles at the Wizard101.com or Pirate101.com sites. This sale will end on September 7th, 2015.


There's quite a bit retired Wizard101 bundles that's available for sale like the Epic, Mega Bundle, Majestic, Super and more. This is a pretty sweet deal to be honest if you haven't bought them already. I bought all of them at the full price. So yea you'll be laughing all of the way to the bank for sure lol.

I would actually recommend you get the Epic and Mega bundles since they're the earliest bundles that were introduced into the game. Also the Evergreen bundle since that house is just epic and your plants will love it.

If you want a huge mount to annoy players with, buy the Atlantean Bundle, the whale mount with will give you that leverage.

But hey, if you wanted to get that Arcane Builder's Bundle, this is the time to buy. Especially if you want the Night Garden which means you will have to buy this bundle and redeem it on the same character THREE times to get it. But remember you're saving 50%!!!!!






I so love Pirate101, especially its ships and companions. The bundles give really good ones too. If you're looking for great ships, buy Hoodoo and/or Admiral's bundles. Empire bundle is great if you want an pretty epic house. Cutthroat Bundle gives an pretty neat companion.


Happy Shopping, Wizards and Pirates!

Blaugust Day 27: Retired Wizard101 Bundle Houses Available Only For Today!

Standard


Yep, you heard it. Today Only - Retired Bundle Houses from Wizard101 is back in Crown Shop. It's Throwback Thursday after all. Each costs 8750 crowns and they are purchasable only for crowns. Luckily, there's also a crown sale going on which means you can buy 60k crowns for $60. That's like a dollar per thousand crowns. BOOYA!

They all come with a PvP Arena which was one of the best features of bundle houses. They're great for PvP Parties!

Massive Fantasy Palace - This house was actually the very first Bundle House to be released from Wizard101. Man, the memories! I remember getting it and being so excited because it was a cool item to have. It's a huge Wizard City style castle with hidden rooms and it even has a moat!

Sultan's Palace - This house is the very second Bundle House to be released from Wizard101. It has a nifty feature - the Genie's Lamp never introduced before in game. You could "rub" it and the genie who pops out would give you rewards like reagents, treasure cards, and more. People would say that this house belongs in the Mirage world that we have not seen yet. Based on the house design, I bet the world of Mirage would be awesome.

The Sun Palace - It's a cool Zafarian house complete with a gorilla in the basement who gives you sweet rewards. That was my favorite part because come on, a gorilla?! This house has so much space inside the house complete with cool sliding doors that you can activate.

The Pyramid of the Lost Horizon - A perfect Aztecan house where you can place your dinosaur mounts and pets. It has cool lava rivers and awesome hidden areas. I love using this house for hide and seek games. Too many places you can hide which is super awesome!

Winter Wind Tower - This house is the Avalon house in the Winter season. I actually use this house as a Christmas house. There's a cool tapestry inside the house that if you press the X at the right time, which will take you to three different spots in the house. One of them is the basement complete with jail cells. Yep jail cells. But they're full with junk. I guess even storage junk needs to be locked up.

But you better hurry, they're only available to buy TODAY. Yep, tomorrow they will be gone.

Blaugust Day 26: The Six Stages of Grief After Your Favorite In-Game Character Dies

Standard

In certain games, there are characters that you can't help, but love. In Wizard101, for me, it was Dyvim Whitehart who was this super super adorable mouse who would tag along with us on our quests in the world of Khrysalis. In one epic battle in Moon Cliffs, poor Dyvim got stung as he got thrown through the glass window by the evil Brood Mother.

"DIE, Ratling!" says the evil Brood Mother.

"The Brood Mother stung me - I can feel the poison burning through my veins. Go through the Honeycomb Gate to the Lost Wood."


As he laid there dying, he wanted us to continue the fight. But Dyvim Whitehart was our buddy. He was our constant companion through Khrysalis and helped us in battles. It brought tears to my eye as he laid there on the ground slowly dying from poison and there was nothing we could do to help him. I hated feeling so helpless. But we eventually did what he wanted us to do.

But looking back, I still remember it. The feels when I look back still lingers, so I decided to list the six stages of grief as you lose your favorite in-game character.

The Six Stages of Grief


1. Shock

"What? Wait.. What just happened? OMG!"

2. Anger

"What the heck? NO WAY! This is stupid. WHY DYVIM?!"

3. Sadness

"But he was so sweet! So helpful! He was like.. my best buddy!"


4. Ranting On Social Media

"NO, NOT DYVIM! GUYS, GUYSSSSSSSS... DYVIM DIED!!! The cute mouse got killed!"

5. The Comfort Food Stage

"I need Ice Cream to fill in the gaping hole of my heart where Dyvim was!"

6. When You Snap Out Of It

"Oh wait, this is just a game. Dyvim is not real... Right? Hope I didn't sound nutty. Is this normal?"

Luckily, for Dyvim, there's still a happy ending with a cool Star Wars reference! If you want to find out, go and play Wizard101. Next time, if you come across a scene like I did with Dyvim, be prepared to go through the six stages of grief. Even though they are made from pixels, they still capture a piece of your heart just like any real living person. Amazing isn't it?
