Hello everyone ,

I am an Adult player new to Wizard 101 i have stoped playing wow after 4 years because i do not like the direction the game is going in i was told to check this game out and after a few hours i had no problem signing up for a year at $60.00 this game is like a breath of fresh air for me .

Every person i talk to is nice and friendly and the game is fun for solo and players in a group. I was aways sceptical to join a new MMO in fear that i will put in alot of work and have the game close up on me a year later but i thought why not give it a try I do not think this game is going anyware anytime soon as it seems to be doing very well.

I just wanted to say hello to all of you and i hope to around for a long time like i said i just left wow after a 4 year subscription so i plan to play lng term :-)

any tips or anything i should know that could help me would be great thanks for your time and hope to see you all in-game.

and for KingsIsle : Great work on this game my hats off to you I really enjoy it and i am only lvl 5 .

thanks again

Hello, and welcome to the game!

I too am also an adult, and I am really enjoying playing Wizard101.

It seems like just about everything in this game is handled wonderfully by the folks who designed it. Nearly every aspect of the game is so polished and well thought out, that it is a joy to play.

I have played other online games.. and I have had (at least) some fun in most of them, but Wizard101 really stands out from the others, because in so many ways this game gets everything right. It hits all of the right notes.

After playing for about a year now my character is a Grand Master, and even though he is at the (current) maximum level I am still having a blast helping my friends. I still want to play.. even with my Grand.

So I share your enthusiasm for this game. In my opinion, it just gets better the more you get into it.

Have fun!

This game is very addicting. I like how it incorporates known themes (i.e Wizard of OZ and Harry Potter) into a very well constructed story line. As an avid AD&Der of over 20 years this game is just the ticket for solo RPGing and it even gives me ideas to use in my AD&D games. :-D

Welcome to the game. I do hope you find it as enjoyable as I and many others do.

I am also an adult and right now I have three Grandmasters and working on my fourth. With each school the style of play changes making each one different as you quest.

I would stay one of the most important things to learn is how to use your training points and keep in mind at a higher level the chances of you using an out of school spell for an attack is rare. (at least it is for me.) With the power pips you start gaining at level 10 attacking with your school spells is easier.

Another thing to remember is this: All the schools are equal with their own strengths and weaknesses.

Hello new fellow wizard. Welcome to the game. Here's a tip: if you're out of mana and need to get it fast, go to the mini games and play Conjuration Concentration until you have 1,000 points then stop and you will have all your mana back!
