They are here! - Wizard101 Central

With the new update, KI had added some totally rocking new items! Now now, before you get any more excited, these items, as far as I concern, are crowns only. I do hope however, that KI could just give us one day where we can buy the wings with gold. Yes, I did said wings. Check these out!

Stylish don't you say?

Now you can go around and flaps your wings all crazy! Of course, many thinks that there should be black wings instead. However, lets all enjoy the bat wings and pretend to be vampire. Before you know it, they might even add a vampire mask with fangs. I bet every wizards will look HOT on Halloween with these!

Wait for it, there are still more!

The Ascendant Staff

I find this staff very efficient for low level players because it gives an extra pip. As Friendly says, this is a great change for low level players. Big! Huge! This will probably save you a ton of time instead of waiting for another pip to cast a spell now.

Phosphorescent Maul

Hammer, they are now in fashion!

Cerulean Edge!

Not only is it awesome looking, this baby can do 110 death damage, making it the best sword so far in the game!

There are also some very cool looking outfits but I don't think they are any cool compare to these cool mounts, staff, sword, and wand.

Again, these items are only available to purchase from the Crowns Shop for Crowns, but they can also be found on high level bosses of the Spiral (the bosses drop the individual items, not the entire sets).

Currently, there are rumors of Jade oni dropping them, so be sure to keep an eye out wizards! As said above, these can be drops!

I definitely like the addition of the wings mounts! I say great job KI! Now if only you can give us new worlds...

Quotes can be so meaningful!

Greeting wizards across the spiral! Today blog is a very special one because I will talk about quotes. You all have probably seen lots of different quotes using in lots of different occasions and sometimes those quotes can really touch your hearts. That is how I feel when I read some really good ones.

Here are my favorites:

The only way to have a friend is to be one.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

*You can probably guess by now that I like his quotes a lot (:*

Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.
~Quoted in P.S. I Love You, compiled by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.”
~Brian Littrell

Here is a short little story, but very meaningful.

During my second year of nursing school our professor gave us a quiz. I breezed through the questions until I read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?" Surely this was a joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Before the class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our grade. "Absolutely," the professor said. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say hello." I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.
~Joann C. Jones

And now, some special quotes in the spirit of Valentine's day (:

*I do not know who they are from as I got them from a random website*

Somewhere there's someone who dreams of your smile, and finds in your presence that life is worth while, so when you are lonely, remember it's true: somebody, somewhere is thinking of you

Fine guys open my eyes, smart guys open my mind but only a sweet guy can open my heart.

Never start frowning because you never know who's falling in love with your smile

One day your prince will come, mine just took a wrong turn, got lost, and is to stubborn to ask for directions.

An angel is what I was meant to be thats why being sweet come so naturally!

Do u believe in love at first site? or should I walk by again?

To spice it up a little bit, I have asked several members on here to share their favorite quotes and explain why they choose it (:

I've learned to never underestimate
The impossible

I like it because sometimes I intepret it as nodody should give up on thier dreams. Never think that anything is impossible. There are some amazing people that overcome all odds. look at the special olympics for example. Those people never let anything come in there way of becoming an athlete and I admire them for that. Flying to the moon was once considered impossible and look at us now. We built the Lunar Module and flew to the moon. Nothing is ever impossible if you have the will to work for it .

I like it because it reminds us all that we shouldn't be mean because we'll always have to live with that no matter what we do.

i chose this quote because i believe it tells a lot about friendship. if you and your friend are truly friends, they stay with you forever in your heart. time will go on and people get older, but the friendship and memories last a lifetime.(:
I got a very intersting one from Jenna, not a quote, but rather a word

I hope some of these quotes have warm up your heart and at least inspire you to do something. Have a wonderful weekend wizards!

What's a pangram?

So I was looking through some Highlights magazines lying around my house, and I came upon a very interesting one. It was all the way back from January 2007. How do I know? It said so at the very top. Anyway, as I flipped through pages, looking for something interesting to read, I saw a picture of a zebra kissing a hippo on the cheek. I stopped and take a look at the picture. Turn out, it had something to do with the puzzle below.

First off, a pangram is a sentence that contains all the letters of the alphabet. Which of the sentence below is a pangram?

1. By January, our exhausted principal knew he had to quit visiting the zoo each Friday evening.

2. A very excited zebra jumped and kissed a hippo before quickly galloping away.

Did you figure it out? I find this pangram puzzle a very good exercise for our eyes lol (see if you can create your own pangram)

Moving on, I shall now talk about my life house. Yep, I bought it when it was on sale lol, 75,000 gold. So far, I very much enjoy decorating the house. Although, there are some parts in the house where I can't put wall or floors at all. That sort of upset me but I guess you have to accept that when you are living inside a tree. I am thinking of hosting a party somewhere during spring break or during summer when I have the finish touch. Stay tune for more info!

Speaking of life house, here is one that I think will definitely blow your mind!

A picture of me and my sister Christina in Valentine's spirit!

Here are just some random stuff lol

Cool event: The Wild Party Inc is hosting an awesome event and I am positive that I will be there! It is basically a party where you can meet wizard101central staff and other members. How fun is that?!!! HERE!

Wizard101: The place that I had been inside the most during these past few days are the Labyrinth. Not that I'm in love with the labyrinth or anything but because I was helping friends. Although do you think Gallium Paladinwill give me the life deck if I bring him some chocolates and a rose? You know what, I think that will do!

Snow: It had been snowing all weekend. If luck is with me, I might have no school tomorrow because I haven't finish the book for one of my classes yet. I think I should get started on that soon.

Profile page: I was quite surprise when I scrolled down to the bottom of my profile and found I had more than 2000+ views! Now I wonder why people would be visiting me lol

Thanks for reading my random moments lol. I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend and ready to get back to school/work!

How does a 3v4 duel work?

It pretty much started out with me logging in and was standing inside the old arena. I don't quite remember how exactly I ended up there but oh well. What happened next was my friend Taylor* ported to me, then Nicholas, and Michael, and eventually, Edward. I love when my friends ported randomly lol.

Suddenly, I found myself dueling. I'm not exactly sure how it ended up 3v4 but no matter, the match was really fun. Taylor (myth), me (life), and another dude name James (death) ended up on the same team, aka the spirit team :D The other team include of Nicholas (life), Michael (fire), Edward (ice), and Leesha (life). They had two advantages as of right now:

1) There are two life wizards
2) There are four of them and three of us

Luckily we went first but that still put us in a very risky situation. Taylor repeately die and of course, I healed him. James did pretty well with his scarecrow, plus the first half of the duel was pretty down with gloom and doom. Anyway, we were able to pull it off for a while until Michael did dragons and meteor. That got me killed. I also didn't even notice the traps around me lol. I was too busy doing my French homework.

Eventually the other team win. Ironically however, Taylor was the last to stand in my team. In general, I very much like that duel despite the fact that it was 3v4. I haven't had a fun duel in weeks and I really really enjoy dueling with my friends like that (: Hopefully another fun duel like that will happen again, as PvP is kinda in a downfall right now with all the ranking, and spamming, and stunning, and bolting.

On a side note, Santa visited my teams several times during the duel. I'm not exactly sure if he is happy right now because apparently, Taylor broke his beard. O.o He is probably not gonna get any presents soon

Now to finish off, I would like to congratulates Wizard101 central on having 70,000+ members. That just shows wizard101 central is a growing community and is definitely a great site for every wizard101 fans! I predict by the time summer end, we will have 1 million members, now that will be amazing!

Happy dueling wizards! Bye

*I would rather not reveal their last names for their own privacy.

EDIT: This is just another little note. My sister is very eager to see who would win so if you don't mind reading *coughthisreallyboringblogcough* click here.
