Immortal's Lore Pack, Test Realm Goes Live, Blog Updates, Must reads from other fansites, and much more!!
In the end of July I was caught in the back to school rush but now I'm back and a lot has gone on since I last posted!!
Immortal's Lore Pack
First of all, the predictions the 3 new spells were going to be in a pack were correct! The Immortal's Pack is an all new pack with Aquilian gear, lots of pets such as the Mechanical Owl, and much more furniture, tc, etc. Swordroll has a great analysis post on the pattern of drops in this pack.
My friend got this awesome wand on her first try :D :D
My first try

All gardners: you have a pack of your own! I was disappointed gardening started losing its favor, but now it's up again with this new arrival! Read more at Frostcaller

Craftable Azteca Blocks & New Skeleton Key Badges
(date was inserted incorrectly. Sorry, correct day = 7/25/16)
KI has added a lot of new updates in the Test Realm that I have been exploring the past few days! Read the full update notes HERE and then see what I have to say about them :) Enjoy!
Level 50 Elixir Boost
Amazing!! Just like the update said. I decided to use it on my level 20 balance. Perfection! Once I used the potion, I was transported to headmaster's office to receive permission to go to CL and quests went on from there! 2 things I was nervous about the potion went well! One, you can still do all the old side quests from the other worlds, it skips only the main. Two, was gear. Do you have to buy level 50 gear? Certainly, level 20 (or whatever level) gear will not work for CL, which is when the worlds start getting a lot more challenging. Nope! You are given a gear set, which actually is decent. Not the right look, so I bought an outfit from the Crown Shop and stitched it. You have those Test Realm crowns, why not use them and get the most joy out of it?! :D
Celestia and Zafaria Quest Changes
I have been wanting this since I entered the areas!! Already finished them now though lol
New 110 Astral Spells
Eh... the only one I'm looking forward to is Epic :D :D I would personally not waste your training pts on the others unless you could find a way to use them. :P View a full guide on Duelist101 here
1. Shows your friends’ full names instead of abbreviations - Not really needed for me. Rarely ever I have 2 friends with the same first name and same starting letter of their last name online at the same time. It's pretty uncommon. I am happy you can hide this, though.
2. Displays the full body of your selected friends - Great! Easy to see, don't have to open up the character. Helpful!
3. Displays the school and level of all friends - Like before, don't have to open up their character page. Very nice :)
4. Has new sorting options - It's very easy to manage. No more searching your list!
5. Has more information on why you can or can’t click on buttons - Very good for new players. I remember being confused about the buttons a long time ago lol
6. Displays friendship date (the day the players became friends) - Awesome! Now I can celebrate friendship anniversaries! lol
7. Displays how long it’s been since your friend was online last: Recent (within 7 days), Active (3 months), and Dormant (longer than 3 months) - Great but it could use another state that says longer than 6 or 9 months so you really know that friend has stopped playing.
8. Displays a count of how many friends you have and how many more you can have - It's nice to know when you're almost full so you can delete friends that are playing ahead of time then to saying to someone add me and have to sit there and scroll down trying to find someone lol
9. Make chat larger - Too large for me, will not be using this one. :P
10. Be alerted when your friends come on - If you have a lot of friends this would be annoying, but you can turn it off. I may turn this off at certain times, but it is useful if you're expecting a friend to be on! :)
Charms Battle List
I love it! I (and many others) have requested for this and it's great! It is a bit hard to find the button however as for it is small. This option has been needed for a long time so I'm happy that KI added it!
This is a great forum about the battle list I found on the message boards:

3 New Spell Drops from Loremaster!
Loremaster farming craze is up again with 3 new spells! I really want the myth one lol View the spells here on Duelist! Very great back and forth points in this post. Fire and myth are supposed to be very helpful while the storm was pointed useless in 1v1 PVP. A great read on D101, one of my favorites in a while :)
Those are the main updates! :) Hope you enjoyed, I am glad we had another Ultra Summer! :P :D Cya next time!

Besides the gear vault, new skeleton key bosses, and daily assignments, Kingsisle has added some little things here and there that actually make a big difference! Here are the following updates I find most newsworthy.
Fewer Sentinel Fish will appear in Zafaria - I've been doing lots of things in the Test Realm, and it's pretty hard to catch fish if you do not have the remove all sentinel fishing spell. So, this will be very helpful for lower fishing rank wizards!
Hovering over seeds in the Seed Vault will now show you information about that seed - The seed vault is already amazing how it is, and now it is better! You can easily organize your seeds with this feature!
The Insane Bolt card is now listed as No PVP - I've read a lot of complaints about insane bolt being in PVP, and now it's not! I too think it is unfair, mostly because of the chance of 10, 100, or 1000 damage.
Thanks KI! It's hard sometimes to take feedback, but you've been doing a wonderful job!

With the release of our monthly newsletter, we discovered that KI has so much more planned for Wizard101! Today, I will be showing you what has been added to the gear vault!
Also make sure to view my older post about the Gear Vault.
Now each wizard can have an outfit for every occasion with 2 gear vaults in their house, each storing 100 clothing items. Gear vaults don't have to be boring either, you can set items on top of them! I made what I guess you could call "a bar" inside my home. I've got a Dragonspyre counter on the platform with a sandwich station, bowl of lettuce, teapot, and milk. There is also a rootbeer stand behind it and some trees. Very awesome, and blends in perfectly with the surroundings.
So go experiment in the Test Realm now, and make your own bar or something totally different! Be creative, and let me know what you're deciding to make with your gear vault in the comments below!
Cya next time!

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!!!

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!
