Best to keep up with the News young Wizard! We've released an entire new world beyond Avalon - you can always find the latest news by clicking on the 'News' link at the top of the Message Boards.
You are only level 9 - you have a long way to go. Complete the tasks you are given in each world. Only after you've completed the required assignments in each world will you be given a key to the next highest level world. Remember to visit Grizzleheim often too, as it has areas that are at the same difficulty level as the main worlds in the Spiral.
When you finally reach level 70 and have completed the quest "Through Glass, Darkly" you need to speak to Merle Ambrose who will send you off on your adventures in Avalon with a quest named "This Little Light of Mine".
