I managed to play test two days before it closed, and got as far as Austrilund's first quest required to get the first Ice Giant Son's medallion.
It was cool to see what Grandmother Raven looked like and am a lover of Norse Mythology. Apart from exploring blind around the second port of Grizzleheim, I applaud this best kept secret.
And as for the new shield spell that helps the classmates that battle alongside me, thanks that Erik Wyndrune has the coolest spell for me!!! I love it more than the Tower Shield that I get in my class.

P.S., This is an awesome addition to Wizard 101 that was well worth the wait.
