PvP Tourneys vs Packs

So, I was chatting with a friend about the pros and cons of Tourneys. So I decided to compare the costs and the worth of the tourneys as well as packs.

The Arena Tickets

So there's 16th places and right in the middle is 8th which has 450 arena tickets. That's going to be our average. 

4 matches a day on the average. Sometimes there's an extra match or two. But 4 matches a day will be our average since there's never less than 4 matches at least a day. Okay, so 499 Crowns per match times 4 matches a day which adds up to 2000 crowns approx on the average per day. 

I placed 4th and got 750 arena tickets!

On the average, you could have approx 450 tickets per match. So 4 matches times 450 tickets equals to 1800 tickets a DAY. If you wanted the most expensive mount which is 10,000 tickets. It would take you 5 days straight at least of doing 4 matches a day while winning approx 450 tickets at least.

PvP Arena Tickets In Crowns Value

5 days, approx 4 match each. that's 20 matches. 20 matches times 499 crowns... That would cost approximately 9980 crowns total. That means that you're guaranteed a mount for almost 10k crowns approximately. It also depends on how well or badly you do that decreases or increases the costs. But the average is 10k crowns which is pretty good. That's almost like every 1,000 crowns, you also get 1,000 arena tickets.

This mount costs 10,000 Arena Tickets

Looking in the crown shop, the most expensive mount would be on par with the Royal Lioness, Blue Dragon, Dragon Filly. It's SLIGHTLY more expensive than the Owl, but much less cheaper than either one of the Pegasus.

So what about Packs?

Packs are so much more unpredictable. You could spend 399 crowns and get one from a single pack. But then you could spend 20,000 crowns and not get one. Methinks that tourneys are the best method to use if you want a mount, a pet, maybe a snazzy new look or whatever.

Me is the Broke

My Hope For The Future

Now my hope is that even when everyone has what they want from the tourneys that Wizard101 will continue to add new items to the vendors. This will encourage us to keep playing tourneys and give us a goal to work towards to. And hey, it's nice knowing that you're guaranteed items that you can work towards to get. Otherwise, tourneys'll get old quick and less people will play it.

What Halson Wrote In His Book

On Twitter, Wizard101 said, "have you ever wondered what Halston is writing in this book? Take a look..."

If you can't read it, here is what it says:

"Real wizards will tell you the tales of their adventures. Some may twist the truth of these tales to keep great attention, but do not sell the lessons in those stories short. There will always be more to the story than we will see on the surface.

Dragons to Griffons all have tales of their fate. The greatest powers in magic come from these creatures and the lands that they make their homes. Study these creatures and the elements in the homelands to unlock the very secrets of the magic .. practice? ... day here in Wizard City.

I hope that by the end of this book that not only will you be able to do the spells but to understand the underlying magic that gives these spells life.

To memorize motions and words is one thing. To truly advance, you must  ... the ... and why of what you are attempting.

Just remember that you are ultimately responsible for every spell you cast. Both good and bad. In wizard land, there are no accidents. So be very careful when attempting new spells. Concentrate on your end goal and all will be as it should."

If you can help me fill in the words, that'd be lovely. Trying to read this gave me a headache LOL.

3-D Building Concept Art: Brandon Stoker And More


I was cruising across the internet and saw this. I was so intrigued by it! I saw 3-D models of the Pirate101 logo and the Storm Lord, so I visited the site. WOW!

3-D Model of the Pirate101 Logo. WOOT WOOT!

I'm so scared. He looks angry.

Ooh dragons! They rawk! RAWRRRR!

Final look of the Wizard101 logo. Looks amazing!

3-D Wizard101 Logo. So that's how it begins? Awesome!

Does this look familiar? This looks like the machine that destroys islands in Valencia.

Aquila robes?

Normally I would post just a couple picture and refer you to his site to see the rest of them. However, there was a few pictures there that were inappropriate for children. I was not comfortable with sending kids to a site that showed inappropriate pictures. So I posted what was game relatable and important for those who are too young to visit that site. Again, please be warned, I am not responsible if you see something there that makes you uncomfortable.

If you are an adult, you can view more of his pictures at:


I saw this picture of the Water Mole Ships from Loren Ashleigh.

I realized.. HEYYYY I want a Water Mole Ship :O!
That's my new dream now. MHM!


Then I just couldn't stop googling. I kept seeing wonderful pictures. Then I found Jacob Williams' site.
Here are a few samples of his work.

All credit goes to:
Please do visit his site because here's a LOT more pictures at his site.
He creates really beautiful work!


Also this guy designs a lot of our clothes in Wizard101. I am stunned. He did all of that? WOW.

Like I said, dragons FTW!

There's TONS more pictures at:!wizard101/c14hj

Ship Showcase - The Ship of Raventhorn

So imagine my surprise when Cody suddenly said he was going to build a ship.. in Wizard101
in the spirit of Pirate101!

Yes he even made the pier. Those lanterns were my idea btw. Hehe! And then poof!

Here I am on the ship. We chatted about the sails. I remarked that he should've used the kimono shirts. He said he thought of it. And we both laughed because honestly? Sails made out of shirts? Too funny. It'd look very strange up there. Notice the pews he used so we can sit around and enjoy the view. We need seatbelts though. I mean I do like to speed around... :P

So love those lanterns and say, what's back there? Let's go check.

Ooh cannons! Good defense there.

Ah yes here we are. That looks interesting. Let's check it out!

Ooh there's stairs downstairs? 

Ahhh bottom floor! All of those wardrobes looks so good in here. I can imagine them to be cubby holes for the crew to sleep in. Awesome! All we need is a pillow, a blanket.. and a mattress :P
Waiiiiit, what's that red transport? Let's go through it.. *poofs*

Whoa, we're up on the very top floor, apparently it's the Captain's Lounge floor. We can look around and enjoy the view... of the Unicorn and the entire ship of course! And yes that's an pvp arena kiosk. Don't ask me, ask him. He's really into PvP. So figures he has a kiosk for it everywhere LOL.

Hope you enjoy the tour of the Raventhorn ship. I hope you build your own ship and show it to all of us. Am curious how yours turned out!

New Spell Found In New PvP Arena Gears!

So... I decided to run to Test Realm with Cody Raventhorn and bumped into Alexander Lionheart. We all chatted about the new PvP Arena Gear Additions which I added stats for below for along with prices. Plus new Mega Snacks information which I also put below as well as the brand new Arena Bought Reagents.

But Cody exclaimed quite loudly in my ear that there's a new spell on the new PvP Arena. So here it is.. Threefold Fever. I wonder if this is crafted or a brand new spell we will be seeing coming soon!

Threefold Fever - -25% to next 3 Healing Spells


Okay, here's my concern about the new PvP Gear. 5,000 Arena Tickets just for hat, robe and shoe. Then another what 1000, 2000 Arena Tickets for the rest. It could cost us 7,000 Arena Tickets approximately. Too much?


I do love a feather in my hat. :D



Ooh la la, I look pretteh!



I love boots that look so fancy like this. I'll be fighting in style in this.



Be careful, my blade is extra sharp ;)



There's no price atm, the prices are currently at 0 which is bugged obviously.

Brand new Agent Purchased Reagents. Amber & Agave Nectar imo is priced way too highly!



Don't you love the snack names? I do! Hehe!
