Issue 05 – Dec. ’14/Jan. ’15

Gone fishing! Fresh fried fish! Fish fried fresh! – Get your fish on!

Starting now there are fish to be caught in Wizard101! When your wizard has reached level 7, talk to Lucky Hookline in the Commons. The friendly Pelican has the quest “A River Runs Through It” for you, and in so doing he will teach you the Fishing 101. After that you’re free to cast your own lines! Most of the lakes and rivers in Wizard City, Krokotopia, MooShu and Grizzleheim contain fish which you can catch.

When you’re near some fishable water, the Fishing icon will appear in the bottom right above your Spellbook. Clicking on it will bring up your Fishing Spells. Fishing is a magical matter in the Spiral, you know! There are different types of spells when it comes to fishing, namely Fish Catching Spells and Fishing Utility Spells. Every fish belongs to one of the seven schools of magic, and each school has its own Fish Catching Spells. Casting one of these spells casts your magical fishing rod ready to hoist your fish on land. Whilst you can catch any type of fish with each Lure, fish are more attracted to Lures of their own school.

The Utility Spells are useful so that you can see which school of magic the fish belong to, or to refill a river or lake that has been fished dry. There are also certain items you can use (such as a Fishing Luck Elixir) to increase your fishing fortunes and thus improve your chances of catching something.

When you have caught a fish, a window appears displaying all the important details regarding your catch. You’ll see the symbol on the left if it’s a special fish, one that can only be caught at a certain time (such as at Christmas). Every fish you catch will land in your Fish Basket, and each catch is recorded in your Angler’s Tome.

Right then! Grab your rods, get set, fish!

Editorial

Dear Wizards,

This winter we’re drilling holes and going ice fishing on the frozen lakes! Curious fish have found their way into the Spiral, so fish away to your heart’s content. There are Chameleon Fish, Catfish, Strawberry Jellyfish, Garrrfish and Dragon Eels, to name but a few of these weird and wonderful marine creatures. You can find out more in our feature article on the left. We’ve also got lots of festive news from Ravenwood and Wizard101 lined up.

Happy reading!

Your Wizard101 Team

 


For a Tidier Crown Shop

We’ve given the Crown Shop a good sprucing up so that you can find what you’re looking for more easily. The categories have been rearranged and new sub-categories added. There’s now also a tab labelled ‘For Your Wizard’, where you can find a collection of different items particularly suited to wizards of your school and level, including sets, mounts, pets and more! You’ll also notice that there are three items highlighted under every tab – these are our recommendations for your wizard in each category!

Here’s the low-down on the new category structure:

  • Under Featured you’ll find current offers, latest offerings and popular items.
  • Under Cards you’ll find Hoard, Lore and Booster Packs as well as Pet Snack Packs.
  • The Mounts have been consolidated, and you’ll also find the Rental Mounts here.
  • The Pets tab includes all those lovable companions, plus the Pet Snack Packs once more.
  • Gold and Elixirs now have their own tabs.
  • The Appearance & Gear tab has been renamed and reorganised. You’ll now find the sub-categories Clothing Bundles, Weapons, Amulets, Shoes, Robes, Hats, Transformations, Hairstyles, Rings and Athames.
  • The Housing tab has been given a new lick of paint. You’ll now find the sub-categories Houses, Gardening, Castle Blocks, Furniture and Furniture Sets, Games & Mini Games, Teleporters and Instruments.
  • Under Gameplay you’ll find the categories Henchmen, Reagent Bundles, Fishing and “Everything” – and we really do mean EVERYTHING!
Happy shopping!

New Bundles: Fish yourself a Spiral Cup!

Two amazing new bundles are making their appearance this winter. The Mystic Fishing Bundle and the Spiral Cup Gauntlet Bundle. Both of them really pack a punch! Friends of fishing can take advantage of the Private Fishing Retreat, the First Mate Otter and the Two-Seater Skiff.

The Spiral Cup Gauntlet Bundle is perfect for fans of private dungeons. Not only will they find the Spiral Cup Gauntlet inside, which they can place on their properties, they’ll also get the Mystic Grimoire and Tanglewood Vine mount! Keep your eyes peeled for announcements in the forum and on our website!

Magical Advent Calender: Door by Door

The Advent season is upon us and with it an enchanting event.
From the 1st until the 24th December, open a new door every day and answer the question behind it.

We’ll be raffling off prizes among the correctly submitted entries! Find out more in our forum.
We wish you a wonderful Advent!

Gamma’s Tip

Hmm… How can we put this delicately? From time to time, you will notice stuff in the game that you can swipe. Yes! Just take it. It’s allowed! We’re talking about things you can decorate your homes with. Some things you can hang on your walls, others you can put in the garden. So far, so good. But where can they be found, I hear you ask. Why not start by taking a look around the classrooms in Ravenwood…
