i am a teen but i met six adults on her people it is not fun the talk about weird things
what kind of wierd things were they talking about? If it was inaporopriate I hope you reported them. one of the things that you probably do not realize is that many of us play with our children to make sure they are not being harassed and because wizard 101 is fun. there are always a few bad apples on the servers but that is not a representation of how all adults act. children acting inappropriately on wizard 101 is a common occurrence but adults know better than to let that speak for all the young people playing the game. I hope you have a good day and I will see you in the spiral.

I'm loving this game. I have been playing for a couple of weeks now and I am hooked! I am not a kid but a working adult and tell anyone who asks. Look me up and I'll be your friend anytime. Rowen WindWisper :D
I am an "older" player as well. I just stopped playing an online game for the same reasons. Greedy and rude players. We need more fun! Only drawback I see is that once you reach level 50 there is nothing left to accomplish so until new world comes lots of people have stopped playing. Anyway good luck and if you need a friend let me know!
I haven't read all the replies but I'm forty four and have been playing a few months with my son and husband. Love this game more than my son, lol. Have made loads of friends and gotten more requests to be someones girlfriend than I did in high school. All and all it is good, clean fun.
Well I am an older adult playing on here with my wife and older daughter 24 and son in law. Working on getting my younger daughter to play. I find this game very well put together and as someone said earlier when someone gets in your group then bails to me that is not appropriate. Its happened to my wife and myself numerous times but we can handle the situation. Just not sure why people feel they have to do that then leave. Oh well kids will be kids LOL................ Oh and I am a gamer, wow, sto to name a few online games :)
I am an older gamer as well...a "granpap" that started playing W101 when 3 of my 5 nieces started playing W101. I was called into "evaluate" the game. By the way "A+".
I've played an MMO, previous to this, for about 5 years and the Drama, Constant leveling, and Fighting over critters finally got to me. I'm getting too "old" for all of that. I love playing with the nieces and just playing in general.
There's nothing wrong with getting rid of stress by playing video games, whether they're on a console, pc, or mac. Just let loose and have fun for a little while :)
I'm a "younger player" and even I notice those weird rude greedy people who play this game, and take it way to seriously when drama is in action. I'm constantly hearing in the commons "I need a girl" from a lol -10 players. Its kinda irritating. People are even DATING on this game. Wasn't this game created to have FRIENDS on not girlfriend/boyfriends?
I am a teen, so not really old at all, but I never realized how many older players there were on this game. I'm glad, it's cool how people of all ages can play and you don't have to worry that you might be older than everyone else lol.

all over the place at least i am ive been playing alot on this have a friend on here to thats close to my age im not what you would call ancient but im not a kid only problem ive had is kids trying to have you buy there way through but other than that its a great game glad to know there are other adults on here
Maybe it's because of that review: "I would recommend this game wether they were 6 or 106!" JK I certainly have met older players, even though i am not one myself (in other words, in junior high yet) the 2 most common sentences on wiz101 are I need a girl and I need a boy. It would be nice if players were all in a similar age group so we can relate better. (even though I have a friend thats like 5 yrs. older than me.) PEACE!! :D :-)
Hi everyone! I am an older person playing lol. ok where are all the adults at? I have not met anyone older than me or my age lol always younger. Well I hope to meet some of you in the spiral sometime. I have been playing for almost a year and I am hooked, my daughter got me started this game is too much fun. I like the arena that can be fun and well nerve racking but fun. Hope everyone is having a great night/day.
I'm also 'older' - 4 decades soon. I've played EQ from 2000-2005, and then beta tested WOW, played that until march this year. I've played others, but I really like this game.
So Pixie server is where the "ol'fogies" are? Great, hope to make friends! My Myth wizard is only level 10.
Look for Seth TrollStone and say 'HOWDY!!' :D
PS: Where do we pick up a mount?
I am an older player (almost a grandmaster in years) too. I am usually on seraph. I play early in the morning and late at night. Some of friends are older players. I have some terrific young friends too.
Mounts are from three different spots: 1-Boss drops-one day mounts 2-Prospector Zeke-one day mounts bought with gold 3-Crown Shop-seven day and permanent mounts bought with gold or crowns
Where do I find mount #3 - the ones bought with gold or crowns? I have some crowns and would like to know where to buy the permanent (not 1 day) mounts.
Thanks so much :D
Hi Rik! Crowns shop is accessed in game. There is crown icon in upper left hand corner. Click on it, then you will see tabs. They are in tab with pet/saddle icon. Scroll through them until you see what you want. Some mounts like permanent seraph wings are crowns only.
Another old guy here, kids are out of the house semi retired and i love this game. Old time D&D player and been playing mudds before any of these morp's came out but i find that there are several of us out there and only a few rude people but they are mainly in PvP trying to get you riled to make a mistake. Old Folks Unite, Angle Bane-Grandmaster Storm
LOL, Grandmother here and I also have played every mmo rpg lol and even MUDD's. I dont mind helping out I just take offense to being forced to by rude people jumping in my fight. I have noticed few who will stand around til you almost die then jump in so when you do die the get the kill and the xp drop etc. I also came here due to the drama and greed in other games and found this place to be exciting from a questing standpoint it isnt just mindless mob killing to level.
PS I am just curious I am almost positive I played a prior game put out by KINGSISLE many many years ago it wasnt mmo but was named Kings Quest I think where you had to save the princess. There were like seven of them I think I am correct in this?
Veteran MMORPG'r here. My story begins with a game galled Meridian59, then to EQ's golden age, and many since. I became rather bored with the current state of the genre, as they're basically all the same, just with different wrappers. W101 is a refreshing take on the mmorpg platform. I'm having fun again playing online with new friends.
