I just made an ice mage, became a member and got crowns. What pet is the best to buy from cash and also what booster packs are best to buy? Or anything else crown related, any advice would be very appreciated, thanks :)

I did buy the 2500 crown staff that had no lvl req I think it was, to get myself pip boost (I read those give pip boost right?)

Now i'm uncertain of what to buy. What pets are good for ice, mount worth it? All mounts are same stat but diff looks?

Booster pack, there is little information on what they can contain, so I have no idea which ones is worth spamming for rare items/pets

If you can get gold, you can buy the Starfish pet for 10,000 gold in Celestia Base Camp, its a good pet for ice. As for gear buy:
Hat: Midsummers Cowl
Robe: Jacket of Withstanding
Boots: Watchtower Boots
Pet: Sea dragon/starfish
Athame: Heartsteel

I am assuming your below level 15 with this. If you need PvP guides, check Wizard101 Central and Duelist101, I don't know how many crowns you bought either, but this is good gear for level 14 and below.

For a good pet, I'd start with a Sea Dragon and go from there. It gives good talents, including a universal resist talent and Spritely. You may not get either while training, but if you keep hatching it'll pay off.

As for a mount, I'd recommend buying everything you need first. Mounts only make you move faster, and in my opinion , they're more for show than anything else. Moving faster isn't needed, and sometimes, moving slower is more helpful. Also, if you like the ones sold for gold, I'd recommend those. You can buy them for fifty to near one hundred thousand gold and you don't have to spend any crowns on them.

As for packs, don't go for more than a few at a time. As KI says, there is only a chance to get the good items. If you don't get an item you're looking for within a few tries, I'd recommend buying something else. It's better than spending all your crowns on a chance.

I would recommend either buying or farming in the trial of spheres for a sea dragon. They have spritely, spell-proof, and pain-giver as first generation talents, (you are not guarenteed to get these talents) and have very good stats. You could then hatch your sea dragon to try to get fairy and spell-defy.
