Are mega snacks still being dropped by the first boss at the Waterworks? It was heart breaking not to get them, after spending so much time and effort battling that first boss.

So, if you are defeated, or flee, and you are thrown back to the commons, if it changes realms, you will automatically have to start the whole dungeon over?

Also, can we get a confirmation, do Mega snacks no longer drop in waterworks? If so, why?

Very good question I was wondering that myself.

Not if you rejoin the instance on the same realm you entered it in.

Greyrose is referring to a loophole players were using to change realms to avoid repeating content in Waterworks.

If Professor Greyrose or another Professor could answer this I would deeply appreciate it. On Central people are saying Luska no longer gives Mega Snacks or drops the Mastery Amulets. Have they been moved elsewhere? May I ask why they were removed? Rumors are rampant, I prefer facts. A person posted the Amulets are available in the Helephant Tower. Is that true?

Thanks so much for your time reading this.

What is that I 'hear'? First boss no longer drops Mega-snacks?

Honestly, I would not be surprised at that. Leave it to KI to screw players over knowing that they may gain an extra buck from the players.

was it intentional for luska to stop dropping mega snacks? I have six legend wizards! wysteria was a let down...it is for lower levels. so im left with leveling pet...hate it! the mega snacks make it easier to swallow! now i dont mind going the long way to farm luska but what for if no mega snacks? I have been loyal to game and spent lots more then my monthly prescription. And now seem to need to find another game or something my boredom is complete!

You get it from Grizzleheim, from the recipe seller in Northgaurd :D
Note: It costs a lot of money, and might be hard to craft for some wizards.

They reacted to players using an exploit in the game. From the knowledge base on this site.

An exploit happens when in game mechanics are used in a way they were not intended to be used. This is done for the purpose of gaining money, experience, or items in the game.

Players that use exploits are subject to punishment up to and including permanent suspension from Wizard101.


Why is it O.K. f or people to do things that cost KI potential income? In my house we call that stealing.

So since people used a glitch in the game mechanics it is ok to punish all players including the ones who didn't use it?

Funny thing is there is this thing called TestRealm which is supposed to be used to flesh out such problems.

We pay for our accounts so there was a problem fix it, why add a punishment to all it's like paying to be grounded.

2nd . Mega snacks used to be able to be purchased at bazaar bring that back i mean if they wanna buy packs with crowns not use and sell at bazaar why not let them its not like there are gold sellers in this game as in others so there is no harm.

Personally did not use the glitch and many a time have had to start over if i had to flee by someone joining me at re-enter in that last second, WW is not worth it for a chance at a single mega snack drop off final boss which is not guaranteed. Not to mention lvl 60 gears you may get same piece over and over and not get one you need so takes alot of farming to get and the ever elusive Masterful amulet which are rare drops anyways.

But all said and done "This is not a Free to play online game" access requires payment items should drop in game not be held out for the people you can bilk out of even more money above their monthly subscription fee,
The crown shop is great many ppl dont have patience to do the ingame work to get the gears/items they want, but all items should drop in game since we all pay to play .

Thank you

Same was done with the Gardening Glitch...

KI refuses to answer this, but why is it, that everyone has to pay for the sins of a few?

Not everyone uses glitches, yet, we are being punished as if we were...

Now, my suggestion is, give 2 mega snacks at Sylvester, that way, you can still farm for mega snacks, but you must complete waterworks to get them!

That would be fair, and still give Legendaries something to do!

I also will be doing much less of Water Works. Not worth 90 to 120 minutes (longer if with fewer than 4 or with text chatters) for a single mega snack. I can assure KI that changes like this will reduce my time on line and will NOT increase how much I spend on crowns. However, the idea above works for me, providing the chance for mastery amulets is also what it was originally.

After some farming of my own, Waterworks now provides 1 mega snack after defeating Sylvester... Luska, no longer drops Mega snacks!

Nobody in Tower of Helephant drops Mega Snacks and the Tower of Helephant is even harder than Waterworks...

So, besides the badge, or to get the gear, if you decide to get the gear, these towers are not worth doing over and over again...

There is nothing left for Legendaries to do....

I still go with my recommendation, so that Legendaries will have something to do and not mind farming these dungeons... That is, to make them both drop 2 mega snacks after the final bosses... That way, the entire dungeon has to be done, and they are both worth doing...

Why not return the drops to Luska the way they were before the update.
Yes there was a glitch you fixed it, not everyone has the time to go to the final boss everytime

2nd. why not respond to all these posts since this a moderated forum ie.. all theses posts are read by someone before approved for posting.

Suggestion: Grow up KI and stop whining about how people took advantage of you inability to do your job, like a 3year sitting in a corner " there mean they took advantage of me, so i'll show everyone Mine Mine Mine, you cant have any !

There is exactly no point once you hit lvl 60 to play any longer since there is nothing to do What wait for a new world that takes 1 day to beat.

Without the ability to farm cool drops and the addition of new cool stuff there is no inspiration for anyone to lvl more than one mage.

I can assure you i will not buy any crowns until drops are replaced.

2nd sugesstion: add drops to Helephant tower only useful drops there are band and athame not worth repeating.

C'mon KI gives us lvl 60's a reason to stay.

Thank you

I gather from wizard101central.com the snacks and amulets where removed while KI fixes Luska. I am hopeful they will return them to him at some point in the future.

I understand your feelings on everyone being punished. It is too bad when everyone is denied a great drop because of the actions of a few. My reaction to it is different than yours. That is just fine.

I really don't think it is possible to catch every single bug.

Mega snacks were made No Auction after the Infinite Harvest brouhaha. I get Megas from gardening and I believe they are available as drops. I like darthjt's idea of the final boss in the Waterworks dropping two. That seems like a great compromise and a nice reward.

Farming is a drag! It does not top my list of fun things to do at all. I have yet to get a complete set of Grand Gear for two of my gals. They are beyond it now. I crafted some great gear from Wintertusk for my Life. I don't think I will bother farming for the Level 60 gear. I suspect I will craft the Wintertusk gear for all my gals.

A lot of Crown Shop stuff does drop. I can only think of elixirs, henchmen, transformations, houses, mounts and the various packs that don't. Quite a bit is available by gold too. I do understand people wanting Crowns stuff and not having Crowns. But, truly one can play the game and never buy one item for Crowns. I think KI is very good about making the stuff available from other means.

Have fun around the Spiral.

Well, all I can say, about it is, there might be twitter, there might be Central, but I thought this was the Main and Official Message boards to the game...

Yet, we here, have heard no Official responce, or are told, if it was an accident, on purpose, or anything about waterworks and the mega snack drops...

Also, I would like to reemphasize, that Tower of the Helephant, may sometimes drop White Tiger Lilies, but, it does not drop anything promising or rewarding everytime to keep doing this dungeon...

Like I said, just give 2 mega snack drops to Sylvester, I would say 3 to the final boss in Tower of the Helephant, since that tower is harder...

Also, one final point... The bosses of these towers, resist their schools, except sylvester... Why? and why are converts considered traps now?

I've sold a few houses belonging to some of my wizards. What you need to do is pick up all items you've placed in that home before you sell it. Then, you can go to one of the housing shops to seel you empty home. You won't get as much gold as you origionally spent for it though.
Good luck
