Pretty flowers, warm air, and green forests are here in March! I have a spring house glitch here for you inspired by the nature feel of this month! This tutorial on how to easily make the best realistic nature scene is perfect for new glitchers and beginners! And, amazing in your house as well!
An assortment of 22-25 bushes, fronds, flowers, ferns, dirt, trees, etc. Here is the list of things I used if you want to do exactly what I did, but it is all up to you.
Deciding tips: If you are not sure what to choose, come up with a theme. My theme is kinda green and red. The end result is a combined garden and forest with all the flowers, trees, and lots of ferns (maybe too many lol). So hopefully you can choose items that match your theme. :) Otherwise, you can do my idea if you are stuck, but like I said, the creativity you put into it is all up to you.
YOU MUST HAVE:
Wooden Platform (Crown shop for gold
Tatami Floor Mat (Bazaar)
Everything below is from the Bazaar.
2 Maple Trees
2 Large Fir Trees
2 Small Cypress Trees
Fronds, Ferns, Dirt and Bushes
1 Small Bush
1 Starburst Frond
1 Wild Fern
1 Elephant Ear Plant
1 Azteca Fern
2 Dirt Pile
2 Coral Bells
4 Pearl Orchids
1 Lava Bulb
Put down your biggest trees first. Mine were maple trees. I made their branches touching as shown :)
Next, place down your wooden platform and take out your tatami floor mat. Spin it over the platform by scrolling your mouse and it should move. Take it over to your trees and place it under both of them. Then cancel your tatami floor mat by right clicking your mouse. You should find the platform all by itself under the trees
If you are having trouble with this, go to Iridian Willowglen's YouTube channel and watch some of her videos.
Now, start placing some of your items around the trees. You will notice they can get closet to each other than they can usually. This is because the platform. My dirt is partially in the tree on the left, so it kinda looks like an ant hill propped up on the side of the tree :)
Next you are going to take out your floor mat again and start spinning. Bring it over to one side of the tree, and place items again.
Go to the next side of the tree and start placing more items. By this step you can see what's happening and how it looks like a realistic nature scene.
Since you have already gone to each side once, you can fill in the gaps in between. I went back to the middle and left because of the big empty spaces.
REMEMBER: Don't crowd and squeeze everything. Think about a park or hiking trail and how it looks like.
When you are finished, take out your tatami mat again and bring it over to your platform. Spin it away from your nature scene and cancel your floor mat. Then, simply pick it up.
And you're done!
I hope you enjoyed this fun and easy house glitch on how to make a realistic nature scene! I can't wait to make some of them in my other houses!
Also make sure you are checking back to my post Test Realm Coming Soon? Wizard101 Teasers Revealed March 2016. It was updated 3/9/16 and 3/15/16. Enjoy!!!

UPDATED 3/9/16 & 3/15/16
I've been really thrilled about the Wizard101 teasers KI has been spreading around through many fansites and their March newsletter, so I decided to share my thoughts of them with all of you! I will be updating this post all through the week when I learn that new teasers arrive, so visit often!
Credit goes to Frostcaller & Around The Spiral with Edward Lifegem & Wizard101 KI for their images :)
On March 1st, the Bad Omen was revealed on the March Newsletter! I believe this has something to do with shadow magic and Khrysalis because of the setting & creatures in the background. I'm also guessing they are in a cave and the portal is the way out after defeating him. Question is, how do you defeat him? I've seen many saying the teasers could be new one-shot gauntlets, and I have to agree that's a possibility that I would TOTALLY be looking forward to!
Today, some new enemies were shown, including Ra, which I found interesting! Krokopatra is with him, so maybe he's under her spell, or something like that. But, wouldn't it be AMAZING to face him? Once again, this is a one-shot gauntlet possibility. Ooh... what if we fought medusa? Do you hear this KI? :)
Another mystery, and this time from Azteca! Since I have not yet completed Azteca, I don't have many guesses for this one, but I do think that we are fighting dark pterodactyls. This will as well be cool to find out!
Also, Frostcaller has a slideshow video from KI showing a sneak peak of these aztecosaurs that I unfortunately could not pull up on my blog. Feel free to copy and paste this link to see this exciting clip.
New Worlds Theory 3/9/16
Since the Polaris update, you've probably heard of future worlds: Empyrea, Mirage, Hidden Lands, and Broken Shores. After doing some research to test my theory, I think I am ready to share my theory. Review the teasers that I have shared, and then read my thoughts below.
Teaser 1: As I said before, Bad Omen seems shadow magic involved. Well, Hidden Lands and Broken Shores are both, according to research, scary and dark places. Bad Omen is in a cave, hidden away. Here is a picture I find that could possibly be Hidden Lands/Broken Shores. Do you think Bad Omen is living here somewhere?
Teaser 2: Empyrea, one of KI's known world ideas, is a place of flying sky squids, eagles, falcons, griffons, gods, and angels. Kind of like Aquila in many ways. Ra is a powerful eagle... but did you consider he might be against you??
Teaser 3: Still curious about this one. If you watch the video clip by Frostcaller, you can see a sandy background, so maybe Mirage?? Mirage is said to be similar to Krokotopia, pyramids, snakes, tigers, etc.
A question many of you reading this might have is "Can KI make a world not long after Polaris, a world that took lots of time?" Maybe, maybe not. We started hearing ideas and spoilers about Polaris in August, and it didn't come out until November. KI might have been planning this since January, and will come out with it in April. They are really moving fast!
Do you have a theory? If so, please share!! :)

Skeleton Keys Theory 3/15
If you read my last theory, you discovered some more elements to consider behind these teasers. The new worlds could be involved, such as Empyrea in Teaser 2 and Mirage in Teaser 3. Well, another theory has been spread all across The Spiral: March teasers: bosses of skeleton keys. Woah... I'm blown away!! But, it very is so proven by Frostcaller in his amazing post Wizard101 Spring Update Rundown. Also, a little hint is given away by this Skeleton Key Giveaway found on MMORPG.
See teaser here: Wizard101 Spring Update Rundown
So here's the fourth teaser, and I'm putting it here because it relates to this theory. I can see that a new assignment is going to be given by this celestian engineer, but everything else is a mystery. I've come up with a list of questions and some possible answers.
What adventure are we going on? - Personally, I'm thinking we could go back to Celestia and help them. Maybe they are in trouble. Possibly there are new spells to learn. Who knows??
Who is he? - We already know this is a engineer from Celestia, but why him. Why did he come here instead of someone we are familiar with? Are we helping him/his family or all of Celestia??? Soon, we will probably find out his history and background knowledge.
See teaser here: Wizard101 Spring Update Rundown
Fishing in Zafaria YYYEEESSS! I actually requested this during the Polaris Test Realm to KI. It's here!! We don't know what any of the fish are yet, but it's for sure there are some sentinels. I remember giving KI the idea of a lion cat fish :) Would be cool if there is one :D
I can't wait to go into Test Realm!!!
~ Ali <3
Wow!! These teasers are amazing!! I have always enjoyed teaser like this. Really requires problem solving and thinking theoritically. I hope you are as well enjoying these and getting prepared!
Don't forget to be checking this post and all of my website often for more tips! A spring house glitch & housing tour is on its way!!!

I've realized since mid December that wizards are starting to leave Wizard101. They are maxed out, done Polaris, been a player forever, and are kind of over the game. They don't see why it's worth to have membership or even continue getting on. The Commons aren't as full as old times, and lots of my friends on W101 are leaving, and most of them for good. There still are tons of wizards playing, but not as many. So I've got some solutions for a some of you out there planning to leave. Ten things to keep you occupied for a little while longer on Wizard101 when you are without membership. Put them into rotation, and you might find yourself still playing in May. Note: These are in no particular order, they are just random.
House Decorating, Touring, & Glitching
You always can house decorate and make cool glitches in your house. The only thing it costs is your time and effort. You can also tour houses, rate them, and find inspiration at the same time! Here at my blog, I provide house glitches and tours to help you for something like this!
Fishing Tournaments, Catch of The Day, and Fishing in Houses
There was a update only a few months ago that brought fishing tournaments, catch of the day, and fish in houses! Even if you don't have a house with fish in it, you can simply go for tournaments or catch of the day! I like to try to meet the fish expectations and enter it in the tournaments! And, get lots of gold through catch of the day!
For more info, read my November Test Realm blog post and scroll down to the area about the fishing updates:
Back to the Test Realm - Seeing what's new
EXCELLENT resource: a post by Swordroll about all the fish found in houses: their location, rank, xp, AND tank size! http://www.swordroll.com/2015/10/wizard101-house-fishing-guide.html
And you can always go to one of my mentioned favorites, The Fish Locator Table:
Gardening is another Wizard101 hobby I enjoy: gardening! This requires your time and lots of patience. If you have plants just sitting in your inventory (or 100 like I do in my bank lol) you can begin using them now. They look cute in your house, especially in pots. Put gardening into your rotation and it will be a blast! (I don't have time for gardening anymore, but I'm starting it back soon :)
Iridian Willowglen has a new fun tutorial on how to "scrunch plants:"
I also like crafting, even though higher up the recipes are super difficult. But, how would you feel if you crafted your own mount? Maybe the five boxes pogo stick? Or how about that carousel housing item? Or even a house (my dream)! If you commit time, gold, and effort towards crafting, you could be an ultimate master of it!
Pet Training & Derby
Pet training is another common hobby for wizards. I switch up the games I go to every so often: 4 games of dance, 6 maze (my favorite), 2 pet cannon, etc. It's worth it at the end when I get a good trait. Plus, there is practice derby, which is also fun. Even though you can't do ranked, it is pretty cool still, same concept.
View this post by me from December on how to step by step play the maze game: Master Guide - Pet Maze Game
Partying With Your Friends
Here is something fun and free -- parties! Gauntlet party? Hotel party? Pool party? The possibilities are endlesss! You can throw a party every week for a year and still not have even done every type of party. You can also go to other friends' parties and have fun there!
Whenever I got bored during the summer, I jumped onto Wizard101 and went to the public castle games. Lots of fun when there are millions of people and when you don't know how to navigate around the house lol. My favorite is Wildfire Tag, and it will always be a part of my Wizard101 life ;)
A HUGE part of our wizard lives is farming, which many do daily. I love farming and getting awesome gear, pets, and mounts. Many of my favorite things I have gotten through farming. Farming takes lots of determination, time, and effort. It's all up to you what is worth farming for.
I read a post today by the Duelist101 Community about buying areas with leftover Crowns that you can farm in. It's a great self splanitory guide. If I were to do it, I'd choose The Atheneum, Waterworks, and Mirror Lake. Find this guide here (copy and paste the link):
Well, there you go. A guide that will hopefully convince you to stay a little while longer on Wizard101. And also a reminder of what you can do for current players. Cya later :)
