Oh You Beautiful Doll

A couple days ago Lenora (FINALLY) leveled up to 48!
So Dworgyn sent me on the quest for Scarecrow.
It was very "vodo".
So I made my little scarecrow dolly and summoned scarecrow.
It freaked out a couple people. WOOT! I AM SO SCARY!
I also got a new Wraith pet. Which was only slightly cool, because then I had to wait 18 hours to actually get it.

Now Lenora is a big kid. She's got an AOE. She's got an awesome new pet. She's got a honkin' sword.
Level 50, here I come!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's day all! I'm not doing anything romantic or special today, mostly working, and killing spiders in the Crystal Grove. Hehe. But if you are, you might want to print out some of these! They're Wizard101 themed print out Valentines. I made them myself. I designed them to be like the kind you can get at a drugstore. Very corny. :) To print them out, click on the tab "file", then click on "Print (PDF)". This way it will be all neat and tidy.

What ever you're doing this Valentine's day have a great day!

Fish n Chips

If you're like me, you're spending most of your time in Wizard101 in the Lunarium searching for pearls.
Don't forget this little beauty of a quest that I rediscovered when I was working on Kestrel.
It's called... "Keep Clam". *giggle*
Rutherford West in the Survey Camp is where you can pick it up.

It's got some lovely rewards!
Now, why do I have a hankering for clam chowder?

Up here's a slapdash of updates from Wizard101.

I downloaded the Test Realm on my laptop and everything was loading up.
Here's a screenie.

I started gardening on my alt Vicky. I want to get her up to Prickly Bear level (4). :) They are the bestest.
Oh and she also got a new holiday wand from Mr. Oni.
I call it her "pea-shooter". It's too small to actually look like a crossbow. It's a pea-shooter!

Miss Darby got to level 20! Okay, this happened weeks ago, but still! It's a big milestone. 
Yay for her new princess outfit!

 Oh and I'm getting close to finishing up crafting for the CL observatory. (I hope they don't change anything. That would totally suck at this point.)
Gus is so happy! Look! He did a backflip!
All I need to make is 6 crystal street lamps. Woot! I'm on a role!

Crafting Maniac

I had a really good time playing PvP last night. Before we got started, I got some tips (thank you Kevin) that really helped me out. 
I actually helped win a couple matches! Woot! New experience!
Will you be seeing me competing in the ranked matches anytime soon? Probably not. I don't really have a lot of time for the epic 4v4 warlord 6 hours battles. But I'll probably be jumping into the friendly MFP match a lot more. Which is good, because its another way for me to hang with my friends. :) And now I'm not freaking out about having a PvP ring in my house anymore. LOL!
In other news, crafting is going really well!
Here's what I've crafted so far, assembled in my dorm:
2 star icons, 2 sprig trees, 5 star chalices, 2 sconces.
Pretty good eh? Then I'll need to go get the 75k gold. Oof. That will be difficult. I'm really bad at saving gold. And I need a new super awesome farming spot, since I don't have one currently. 
So it looks like I've got some more work to do. Better get to it!

The Chalice for the Palace...

As most of you probably know, I have decided to take the plunge and craft the new Celestial observatory.
Wow, have you seen Kevin's crafting list for this house?
Yeah it's a "project".
So I'm starting off with the Star Chalices because you need the most of them (8).
I crafted my first one a few days ago.
I really like it! It's so... "hooray for Hollywood"!
Plus it's a chalice!

Huzzah for chalices!

Nargle Crossing

Kestrel posted earlier about the new subscriber benefits and some other things.
I'd like to address the new subscriber benefits too.

I'm a subscriber. I like being a subscriber. I also really like playing with crowns players. I have nothing what so ever against them. That said, I think the new subscriber updates are a good thing. I mean, there currently is no benefit to being a member except ranked PvP and Derby (which a lot of people don't do).

So I like that we get a little bonus for paying more for the game over time. Also these benefits are minor. I mean we've all survived without them for almost two years. So it's not like suddenly subscribers have this HUGE advantage over everyone else in the game. That would be bad. So overall I think its a smart update.

And that's my opinion.

New orthrus animation

My good friend Alric mentioned this morning that there was a new animation for orthrus on the test realm.
Naturally I rushed over to see what the new animation looked like.
I took a video of the new animation in action.

What do you think? Do you like it better, or do you prefer the old animation?

Garden Party

Amber and Donna and I had a lovely afternoon chat in the garden.

So ladylike, so refined.

Oh. Are you suprised I'm not dead? Me too.
