*cough cough*

I have an announcement to make! Actually, I have two announcements to make!
Big important announcement #1: I got both the Lexicon Blade and the Aureate Band in my TotH (Tower of the Helephant) run yesterday!
Big important announcement #2: A surprise! Click the link in the smiley to see it! :) Warning: You will need a Wizard101 Central account to view this! Please, please, PLEASE sign up for counselor if you are level 58+! There's only one spot left that needs to be filled! Sorry for a short post! And I'm now going to have a color changing signature! And every sentence in this post has an exclamation point on the end! XD

I feel strangely proud of myself...

...because I did the waterworks for the first time! It was lots of fun, although I somehow failed the eel puzzle. I activated all the levers in the right order, and somehow, monsters came up! Maybe I was too slow? But anyway, I got unlucky. I got no good gear, no mastery amulets, and no mega snacks! Although, I did get over a dozen drops from Sylster. These included about four rings of other schools, which I sold. On the plus side, I earned 10k+ gold from selling all my lousy loot! Hmm...lousy loot...lousy loot...that sounds cool. *clears throat* Anyway, I forgot to take any pictures of the occasion. >.<  Next up is Tower of the Helephant, then it's back to Waterworks for farming!

Well, I didn't miss it this time.

Remember when I missed the Grandmaster moment? Well, that didn't happen this time. I am now officially legendary! I'm going to try out Waterworks and Tower of the Helephant soon. Here's picture proof, with me in the outfit I plan to stitch my waterworks gear to:

So yeah. Like it? I already stitched my awesome wand! That staff in front of you is the Spear of Bear's Wrath, stitched to look like Branch of the World Tree.
And other news: I finished Science Center! After too many tedious defeat-and-collects to count, it's on to the Crustacean Empire for me!

See ya in the Crustacean Empire, folks! And my special signature is now brown!

Warehouse fail, Wintertusk finished, and a non-spritely pet!

So...I need to get back into the daily posting thing. I have lots of news! First, Elizabeth GoldenThistle and I tried out the Marleybone Warehouse, just the two of us. We got all the way to the last boss battle - but then we failed! :( Oh well, at least now I have lots of items to feed to my new forest lord pet, Lord Rex. Which, by the way, is an adult and has Life-Giver and MC Lifeblade. And I finished Wintertusk. I got the final hit of the final battle of the final dungeon of Wintertusk! I hope to get back to the Fanfiction soon. I've been doing some serious procrastination in that area. Just like I've been doing in Celestia. I have to defeat and collect 3 of something from Water-Matons, which are robots that are life and have maybe a 5% drop rate. If not less. Also, I have an article. It's kind of a rant in disguise. But if you actually want to read my rant er, article, go ahead!

Why Life Wizards Are (Supposedly) Unimportant

Skyscream, skyscream, skyscream and a Life Mastery amulet. How many storm wizards have you seen with that gear? Probably quite a few. Personally, I lost track somewhere between 15 and 20. "And what's wrong with that?" you might ask. You might even have that set yourself! What's wrong is that it gives global accuracy, and because of the amulet you can now use your power pips for life spells. In fact, it gives so much global accuracy that you will no longer fizzle on your life spells, and can use power pips just like any life wizard. That means you can't fizzle on the heals. Take this scenario: A life wizard, a storm wizard, and a balance wizard are in a boss fight together. The balance wizard is nearly dead, and both the other wizards draw satyr cards and can cast them. The balance wizard says, "Can somebody satyr me?" The life wizard says, "I can!" But the storm wizard then says, "Nah, I should do it because I won't fizzle!" And the balance wizard agrees. Since when has storm had higher accuracy than life? It's not natural.
Here's another reason: When my friend and I were doing Nastrond, a transcended fire wizard came along. She told me to go into the battles last. When we were all in, she started shielding me like crazy. I wanted to know why. She said, "We have to keep you alive because if you die, we all die." She probably wanted to make me feel important, but that's not how that comment made me feel. It seems like a lot of wizards think that they are somehow more important than the life wizard. They bring life wizards along on their runs "to keep them alive". The life wizard him/herself is dispensable, but is important to keep them alive. It doesn't really matter if the life wizard dies as long as everybody else makes it out. And now, even that small feeling of importance of being needed on runs is slowly being taken away. Now, with so many healing treasure cards available and the MC unicorn talent, wizards of other schools can "be their own theurgist". They don't want to be life because what's the fun in that, but they don't want to fill a dungeon spot with one of those useless life wizards.
And now with the aforementioned MC unicorn, who knows what's coming next? How about an MC satyr? Or an MC rebirth? Soon, life wizards will have zero purpose. Bravo, everybody. Bravo for turning one of the most important schools into something completely useless.

The Shadow of Night: Part 1!

Here it is. Done! And yes, music was composed by my friend.
There you go! I'm going to Nastrond tonight, then it's project pet! Yes, now I have Forest Lord.

Forest Lord, here I come!

Level 58 now! I have picked up the quest for Forest Lord. I am so excited for my AOE spell! I'm off to study my favorite guide to the Grisletusk boss now. That's the boss for the quest, for those who don't know. And, I'm starting a comic strip, called "The Adventures of Cody BoomStalker". It's about a storm wizard named Cody BoomStalker, and yes, he is completely made up, and his adventures with some signs. I had this idea when I went on the test realm and fooled around with signs a little. Go check it out on the Funnies page! Short post, but hey, I'm busy!

Avalon on test? I feel SO behind!

I feel behind. Yes, on posting too, but that's not what I'm talking about right now. I'm talking about how the new world, Avalon, is on the test realm, and I'm not even started with Zafaria yet. >.< Although, that doesn't mean I can't go on the test realm! So, now I'm working on wasting those free test realm crowns in creative ways. (Like: buying a teleporter of each color and making them all lead to jail cells in my various houses.) Random: now I can critical. And, why have I been so behind on posting? Because I've been devoting a good deal of my online time to the torment known as the Wizard101 Central Easter Egg Hunt. I mean, seriously, if you find an egg you get a super bundle! And since I don't already have a super bundle, I was really, really excited. So, after hours and hours of searching, I gave up. I'm back. Besides, of all the bundles, I prefer the Mega Bundle. (The sultan themed one.) Half because of the flute you use to cast. And I've always wanted to ride a flying carpet. But, I'm planning to step on the gas pedal for Celestia. I haven't been doing Celestia recently because I've been taking a break, going to the world of Wintertusk. One reason I like Wintertusk is that from a simple mob fight you can get drops that are better than the Grand gear. I'm not kidding. Critical gear, here I come! Oh yeah, and I know vengeance now. So, see ya in the Science Center tonight, with my myth friend Elizabeth GoldenThistle, in the Lincoln realm, if you happen to want to show up and maybe help us out. So, see you tomorrow for real this time!

Lights, camera, ACTION!

Did you see my post? When I gave a hint as to a certain mysterious surprise? Where the hint was lights, camera, ACTION? It is done! So here it is!
Like it? Comment either on the video itself or this post and tell me how it is. Or not comment. I don't really care. But anyway, exclusive content like I promised! So this movie is about Daniel NightWraith, my death wizard. (Okay, actually his name is Daniel DeathBlood, but NightWraith sounds better for this movie purpose.) So yeah. And he has a lot to do with the undead in wizard city. This movie will also star one of Elizabeth Goldenthistle's lower leveled wizards, a level 10 balance named Anna StoryWeaver. Okay, that's all I'll reveal. But I just want to say that Elizabeth GoldenThistle has a decent amount of music experience and a composition program, so she might compose movie soundtracks! Cool huh? And I posted a new poll, so please go vote on it. That's all for today, so bye!

Nobody reads my blog.

Oh, come on! The only people who voted on my poll were me and my friends. Seriously! Nobody reads my blog. :( So if you read my blog, please, please, PLEASE comment! It would make me so happy.

Two thirds of the way through Celestia!

Okay, so I finished those defeat and collect quests in Stormriven Hall, fought a boss, and got out of the gaze of that creepy eye. Then I ran around in District of the Stars talking to Preceptors and got a jellyfish pet. Its pedigree was higher than that of my awesome spritely satyr pet, so I looked up its talent pool on the W101 Central Wiki. It has only one selfish talent, can get spritely, and the rest are death talents. Hmm..... Maybe I'll send it over to my death wizard, Daniel DeathBlood, and he can get a super overpowered grand pet. >:) Click here to see the pet page for the jellyfish if you're interested. So anyway, Elizabeth GoldenThistle and I went and did the Portico (aka the Lunarium) together and it was kind of challenging, but we brought a level 42 fire menu chatter. (Named Dustin ThunderHeart.) We leveled up! We are now level 54 and I trained the Infallible spell (star aura). It's +15% accuracy and stun block for 4 rds. I plan to use it when I really don't want to fizzle, because that'll get me to 105% accuracy for my life spells. See ya, people!

Stormriven Hall + Strange disembodied eye = Creepy

Okay, so I've finished The Floating Land and Stormriven, so now I'm doing pesky defeat and collect quests in Stormriven Hall. Celestia drop rate is so low...but let's talk about that later. I'm not here to rant about low drop rates. I'm here to rant about...this!
Yes, I know, there was a dragon eye in the Crown of Fire. But this is different! I actually knew there was a dragon titan up there. But this is random. This is mysteriously creepy. AND that eye looks so much more like a real eye. It creeps me out. And then it randomly shrinks and retreats into blackness. Then it's prone to pop randomly out again and startle me! Even worse - the ice monsters I'm fighting are in perpetual eye view. Ugh. Thanks for listening to my rant! As an extra special thank you - here's a code for the first lucky person to redeem it! p348f-3l7xl-3lu6j-ll538

See ya tomorrow!
