Hi, I notice that the millionth wizard is named fiona ashblood and I wonder if there are more than one. My daughter also that name. Did the millionth wizard get anything special?? (crowns, treasure cards?)

Wizard names are not unique, so yes there are several Fiona Ashbloods before and after the millionth. :)

I haven't counted for female characters, but for male, it's slightly over one million name combinations. From the announcement, I'm not sure if they meant one million characters created or one million accounts; if the latter, it's unclear why the millionth corresponds to a particular in-game name.

If there are one million male character names, that means that an average one is had by one character. If all character names were equally likely to be chosen, then the number of characters with a given name would be essentially a Poisson distribution. But this isn't the case, of course. Ask Luke SkyWalker about that.

We displayed the name of the first Wizard that the millionth registered player created. Hope that helps.

I noticed that the Storm Beetle offered by Zeke is refered to as "Limited Time". How Limited are we talking here? I want to get one; but I'm literally shy just a couple of Crowns, and can't get any more until later this month....

Here's an Idea to help them stand out in the crowd : A special Title they can wear, like "Millionth Student" or something like that.

I know that another MMORP I use to play gave the Players from its original Closed Beta period something just like that.

So that explains it, I didn't want to spend my crowns because i didn't like any of the pets so I didn't by any.... I just wanted to save up crowns, and now I have none! I guess I didn't look at the "limited" sign.

Thank you, Professor; I was kinda worried, since it looked like a cool pet.

BTW, love the Free Blue Cyclops Pet Quest that Zeke is giving out after Penny's series of Quest. I wasn't sure if that was only a Limited Time Quest; so I went ahead, and did it with all of my Wizards ...

If it wasn't Limited, .... well, I still think its a cool Pet ...

Also ask Taylor Swift. XD

I saw one of the seven Fiona Ashblood students. I saw one in the pyramid of the sun, in Krokotopia. I was lucky.

The person I talked to in game said that they were the real one (really I don't know and didn't really care) and said that they got a bunch of gold. /shrug maybe it's true maybe it isn't dunno.

When is that announcement going to be changed anyway? We now have over 2 million students.

As for names... yeah, my first wizard was "Luke SkyWalker". I didn't give it much thought. I was just so surprised that that was a combination I could use that I went with it. However, I only ran across a couple others during my quests. But I ran into endless people who thought they were ever so original and clever by standing outside my battles saying "I am your father" over and over.

Now that I am mainly using a different wizard, I am seeing a lot moure Luke Skywalkers though.

While your at it, why don't you speak to Jack Frost about that?
