The livin' is easy.
Alts get leveled and the castle finally gets that new wallpaper you've been meaning to put up.
I plan on lots of PvP time with friends.

Finally leveling up some characters that haven't increased in level since *cough* Celestia *cough*.

Oh and those castles, they are getting finished. All the way finished. I plan on hosting a party too. So it better get finished.

What are your plans for your wizards this summer?


P.S. I plan on loudly playing "La Bamba" and "Misirlou" ad nauseum. To me, that's what summer sounds like. In the words of Rhino: "Let it begiiiiiiiiiin!"

I've been catching up with my wizardly duties.
First I finished Avalon with Elijah and Ms. Dreamflower.
Then I spent 6 hours hanging out with John. We got really silly (as we do when left unsupervised). Then we went and did a million hit on General Greystone.
Thanks to John and Rylee!

I've been spending a lot of time lately hanging out in the Bazaar and the Hatchery. Those are the best places for outfit watching. All of that outfit hunting has prompted me to revive the street style project. I've revised the format, and now it's more shiny. Shiny is good.
A little slideshow for your view pleasure, the theme -- holiday items.

I also got a reader submission: This is from Edward Strongfist! 
Thanks Edward!

The Times They are A-Changin': the community speaks

I have often spoken on the evils of the hoard packs. I spoke about the dragon's hoard and the wyvern's hoard, I spoke out against the nightmare pack, and then later about the kirin's hoard pack and pack-a-palooza. Well yesterday a new pack came out. The "Hoard of the Hydra" pack.
I'm not going to go through it all again, I've already said what I needed to say about the evil packs of evil. I'll just add that I found it disappointing to have such a junky lame pack (akin to the dragon pack of yore) after the really quite nice Emperor's Attic Pack, where most of the items were okay and auctionable (!).
 But it seems that people are starting to get really tired of the packs, not just me. The community is starting to speak out, so I'll let them do the talking:

@WizKathLight said: Wow. That new wand is just... wow. I am not amused. I something is THAT OP for PvP, and even PvE now, it shouldn't be pack-only.Wow. I love packs. The MooShu pack was great - fluff items, for fun. No game changing stats, just fun and play. This gear goes too far for me. I try to keep this feed positive, but I believe I will be taking a break from W101. I feel anger & disgust just thinking about the game now.
Please note that Katherine is a hardcore player and a member of the Merc4Hire team, and also one of the nicest canadian wizardesses I know. The chips are down people!

@KelseyFireheart said: I spent 30,000 crowns which made it 75 packs and no mount. #HydraPack #NotCool

The video makers have also thrown their hats in:

To me it's clear. The attitude towards these packs is shifting. I will be very interested to see what KI does to address this situation, if anything.
Be sure to contribute your feedback to KI, and to do so in a creative way (come up with new suggestions), often I see this making an impact in the game.
LONG LIVE THE REVOLUTION! Oh okay. That was too much wasn't it? Probably.
