The sparkling magic of jewels

gammaYour wizards can now cover their equipment items in jewels and in doing so, improve them. The only requirement is that they have reached level 15 and that they have completed the quest 'The Razor's Edge' available from Eudora in the Tangletree in Olde Town. Gems are magical stones that you can find, purchase or produce. They have a special magic that they then carry over to the item that they are attached to.

Simply Brilliant!
The sparkling magic of jewels


Your wizards can now cover their equipment items in jewels and in doing so, improve them. The only requirement is that they have reached level 15 and that they have completed the quest ‘The Razor’s Edge’ available from Eudora in the Tangletree in Olde Town. Gems are magical stones that you can find, purchase or produce. They have a special magic that they then carry over to the item that they are attached to.

To improve a socketable item, you will first need a jewel. There are various types of jewel. Note that jewels only fit in their matching sockets! You can carry out socketing on your spellbooks using the new jewel socketing page. To remove a jewel from a socket, simply use the ‘Shatter’ button. Doing this destroys the jewel, but the socket is then empty again and available for you to enter a new jewel into it. In this way you can constantly add ever better bonuses to your items.

Some items have locked sockets. These can only be opened with the assistance of a Socket Wrench or by using some Crowns. To unlock a socket, click on the ” button in the jewel socketing page in your spellbook. A window will then open. In this window, you can use your Socket Wrenches, if you have some. Otherwise you can pay Crowns to unlock the sockets.

Editorial

Dear Wizards,

Aah, wonderful, the holidays are here! Naturally we hope the sun has got his hat on for you, wherever you may be. If it does happen do be raining cats and dogs where you are, don’t worry: there’s always a dry spot for you here in the world of the Spiral. But even with blue skies, it is always good to go on trips, especially when we have a fantastic update to announce to you: there’s not only a pile of glittering jewels to be had, but also three brand new dungeons!

Wishing you a summer full of adventure,

Your Wizard101 Team

 


The Forgotten Art of Jewel Crafting

As already mentioned, you can purchase or find jewels. Much it can be much more fun to craft them yourself! This works in a similar way to the crafting of other items within the game. However, chance plays a greater role in the art of jewel crafting: even those jewels produced with exactly the same recipes can end up with very varied qualities with different values. Every jewel recipe is different, yet they all require the same base ingredients: Gemstones, Metals and Treasure Cards. The higher the level of the gem recipe, the higher the value of the finished jewel. Have fun trying it out!

Three new dungeons for your home: knight’s games, rock’n’roll and green thumbs

  • The Grand Tourney Arena: The honourable Duchess Blackthorn of Avalon would like to celebrate her daughter Sophia’s name day and has invited all to the grand tourney – but not everyone is playing fair.
  • Baddle of the Bands (one-shot dungeon): King Thermidor, our friend from Crab Alley, has to defend his title of ‘King of Rock’ in an epic battle of the bands.
  • Tanglewood Terror (one-shot dungeon): A horde of evil plant monsters have overrun the Tanglewood under the command of Greenwarden and have turned it truly into a Tanglewood Terror. Whether Desparagus or Dead Beets – they even say the scariest of plant-based puns.

Wizard101 is celebrating its birthday!

For four years now you have been able to play Wizard101 with us and enjoy some excellent adventures with your wizard, woohoo! We think this is more than enough reason to celebrate! For this reason, we have planned plenty of surprises for you this September: events, great offers in the Crown Shop, community events and on, and on, and on! More on this soon on our website, in the forums and on Facebook!

Fish out of water and into the lava!

You can now fish in Dragonspyre – in the lava! But be careful, it is a skill that has to be learnt.

Speak with Lucky Hookline in the centre of Wizard City. He knows who can help you further.

Sherlock’s Tip: Be wary of mean-spirited account thieves!

The O’Leary swindlers are amongst us and want to swipe your Wizard101 accounts! They steal your Crowns, delete your characters or just start playing with your account. In come cases we are able to give your account back to you, but it isn’t always possible! So be cautious and take the following advice to heart, so that your characters are safe:

 

  • NEVER give anyone your login data (= your email address and your password)!
  • Do not add anyone that you do not know to your friends in Wizard101. Do not blindly trust players that are strangers and do not let them intimidate you. Events in which Wizard101 team members send out friendship requests to allow you to teleport to an event are always announced via a server message!
  • Never add anyone to your friends on Facebook, just because he or she claims to work for Wizard101. Wizard101 team members only use Facebook (if at all) for private use. (You can find the official Facebook page for Wizard101.co.uk here.)
  •  

    We need your cooperation! If you see anything suspicious in the game that may have something to do with account theft, please take a screenshot and let our support know. Thanks! You can find more information (here and) in the forum.
