Hello,

Today I decided to see how much a Training Point Buy Back would cost. So I check 7770 crowns! Man that is a lot. Meanwhile, my sister went to check how much her's was. 0 crowns! No joke. Can someone please tell me why my sister's was 0 and mine was 7770? Thanks :-) .

When young Wizards first start out at Ravenwood School of Magical Arts, they are often excited by the many different spells to spend Training Points on, such as shields and magical spells outside their school of focus. We understand that as Wizards progress, they sometimes wish they could return those spells in exchange for their Training Points back. Well now you can!

Mr Lincoln in Golem Court will allow you to Spend Crowns to buy back all your Training Points and return all of the spells obtained with those Training Points. You can respend your new Training Points as desired.



The price in Crowns is dependent on how many training points you have spent and the first three are free.

From what I understand, it is based on a) level of your character b) how many training points you have spent. While a cost of 0 crowns sounds really odd, the cost of 7k crowns doesn't really sound odd for a max level character with close to max training points spent.

Be thankful that you can even get a refund for your training points. I have played some games where that isn't even possible. Although it would be "nice"(tm) to be able to use gold to do this. I seriously doubt that it will ever happen since it is just another way to help the company make money.

Your dad also pays an extra five dollars a month to play World of Warcraft over the price of Wizard 101. The crown money from Training Point buyback is possibly one of the methods used to offset the difference.

Thanks professor and i kind of agree with you but if we can get a certain amount of people to tell KI to do this will you listen and make it happen? :-)

That is how it is currently. The amount of crowns scales with the amount of training points you have used up.

I lol'd there...but yes, WoW is more expensive and lacks a micro transaction shop (read: crowns). KI uses every tactic it has to make money, and it may not be economical to allow you to use gold to buy back training points.
