Cody Raventhorn's House: The Secret Garden

Last week, I visited the most gorgeous house I have ever seen.
And it was created by Cody Raventhorn who said he got his idea from a book cover.
WOW! I promptly told him I MUST have this built on my own Myth house.
This is a girl's dream house, well for the outside that is!

Now our tour starts!

The outside general view

The front view. Don't you love that entry of the Minotaur and hedges? Simply marvelous!

As you enter, you will see two paths. Am taking the right path first.

This is a stunning display of Ambrose and the candles.
He did the candles in a perfect line which was amazing!
This is such a perfect tribute to the wizard who started us off on our path
through the Spiral.

I loved the pavilion, but I couldn't get to it from the ground.

Had to go all way back to the door and there was a secret platform behind that
allowed me to drop down to the platform. Hehe. So clever!

Nice View right?!

Behind this bridge, there was another floor made out of Metal Platform that you could climb
to YET another Metal Platform above it.

Stunning view

Now back to the Minotaur and taking the Second Path:

This path was easily overlooked which I liked.
Celestian Warrior Statue with mini games. So cute!

Another metal Platform but with Mooshu style.
There was two Jade Onis hidden in the planters
and folders between them.
If you climbed the folders, UP YOU GO!

That mannequin looked so real to us. We thought it was a real person ROFL!
The perfect bartender.
It had a cozy feeling while we stood around and chatted with a cold soda in our hands.

Then there was a space to jump down from. Good thing we didn't break our legs.

But it didn't end there. there was another bridge we had to go through.

I love that Obsidian Firecat statue. So pretty!
Then we had to go back to the platform and to all way back of it.
We climbed up the broken land stairs up to the island in the sky.

Gorgeous view with the MB crown pond and all!

And this ended the tour and left me breathless.
Every time I think of this house, it just takes my breath away.

I can't believe Cody Raventhorn actually topped himself!! Way to go, Cody!!

Updates on Wintertusk from Zeke

I just saw this post on the Wizard101 forum regarding Wintertusk. I thought it was interesting to share.

1. Yes, you will be required to complete Grizzleheim before you can enter Wintertusk. 
Oh boy, means I have to work on my wizards that haven't even completed GH! EEEEEK!! Only Kelsey Fireheart out of 8 Wizards I have completed GH. That's Karma for me!

2. No, there will not be a raise in the level cap. 
This is quite Interesting. Means this is just a minor world. The new monsters are probably not even that much stronger than we think. Maybe same as Celestia? But regarding the level cap, I wasn't surprised that they wouldn't raise it. This is way too soon for another ten levels to be added. They couldn't have created a HUGE world like Celestia. I think Wintertusk is just ONE simple area of GH. Thats it. Probably through those Nidavellir doors. 

3. Yes, players who are over level 58 will be able to obtain their pet.
This is a great relief for those who were so worried that they couldn't get their pets if they were already Legendary!!

4. No, the Selena Gomez quest/rewards will not be returning. 
Of course, Selena is way too busy to come back. She's still on her tour with the Crab King showing the rest of the Spiral their wonderful new concert.

5. Yes, players who have reached Legendary will be able to obtain their new school spell. 
YAY! I wasn't even worried. But still can't wait for the new School Spell. Wonder what ours will be???

6. Wintertusk storyline has nothing to do with the Morganthe story line. The horn in Grandmother Raven’s hand has no bearing on the prophecy."
OOOooooh.. This is sooo interesting. Now I wonder what stories Grandmother Raven has to tell. Means I wrote that poetry that I have yet to post for nothing. ROFL!

Kristen Silverthorn's Adventure in Wizard City

For the heck of it, I created a new wizard named Kristen Silverthorn on a new account.
I used my Life, Kaitlyn Lotus, on my first account to help her breeze through Wizard City without being bored. This way I could level both wizards at the same time.

I received my first quest school spell at level 2 and I received Freeze which stuns the opponent.
Nice spell, but not cool so far.

The Mystery of the Countdown!!

The mystery countdown is a "Easter Egg Hunt." Makes sense since some of the pets seemed like they were released too early. Pets, Eggs and soon Easter! That's my GUESS!!!

Morganthe; how I hope I will someday spell that correctly.. - Chapter 1

There was a Morgana Le Fay fable that said a horn will be used by someone unfaithful who accidently blows the horn. Therefore, unleashing the evil dreaded Morganthe.

A younger brother and older sister walks on a back trail in the woods. The boy notices a cave 50 feet away through the woods and decides to explore. The big sister says "No, don't go in there. You don't know if there's bears in there or something. I'm not responsible if something eats you. I don't wanna be grounded because of you!"

The brother replies, "Oh please you're always so paranoid! Will you just liven it up!" He resumes walking and goes into the cave which luckily is empty. As he explores, he comes upon a horn sitting behind a rock in the back of the cave. "Oh awesome! Look at this thing! It's a horn! I wonder what does it do? I wonder why it was hidden all way back in there??"

"Oh you better put that down. It's dirty and if it's hidden, who knows what it could do? It could be evil or whatever." The sister scoffs. 

"Really, wow. You're that paranoid? PLEASE!!! It's just a HORN!" The boy shakes his head in disgust. He again looks at the horn which feels so big in his hands.  "I wonder how it sounds." 

"DON'T BLOW IT! I have a bad feeling! Seriously, come on!!"

He scoffs and blows it. The sister plugs her ears, shuts her eyes and hides behind a rock. There's a loud BOOM! sound and Morganthe appears in a huge puff of purple smoke. 

"AH it feels so good to be free!!!" Morganthe says. She looks down and notices the boy right in front of her. He's shell shocked and is speechless.

"I TOLD YOU!!!" the sister screams from behind of the rock.

"Ah, are you children my new slaves? I guess so," Morganthe laughs cruelly. "We have a lot of work to take over the spiral and get rid of that bothersome Ambrose. Come my children!"

New Pets coming to the Spiral!!

This just in from Professor Greyrose:

"I know many of you were looking for information on some pets that have appeared lately, seemingly out of nowhere, and I wanted you to have this as our response:

It seems as if the gate on the holding pen swung open & a stampede through the Spiral has occurred.  We were trying to hold some of the pets back as holiday treats, but they were too anxious to make an appearance and escaped into the world.  Enjoy!"

And here's the first two pets that busted through! 
Nightmare = Regular Unicorn + Helephant
Pet Egg = Regular Dragon + Colossus

But wonder what other new combinations are out there?!

Wintertusk: A new world coming soon!

Wizard101 just announced that they are working on a new world called Wintertusk which will continue the storyline in GH! Seems like that one of the areas of Wintertusk is named Jotungaard.
There also will be a new NPC in GH named Grandmother Raven.

Wizard101: Grandmother Raven

She will be in the new world and will explain the mysteries behind the spiral. Should be interesting!!

But, also we will get new spells to earn and new Level 58 pets to have for each main schools.

I'm wondering what new Level 58 pets will be and if they will include Critical and Block in its talents?
And since there will be new spells meaning there will be more points to earn? If so, that's great!

As a bonus, they are bringing back Crab Alley to continue the story of the Crab king after Selena leaves. Am so curious how the story goes.

What's even more, they stated that there are even more surprises coming!

So can't wait!!!
