Miscellaneous Game Updates

  • Silver chests in many worlds have been updated to provide world appropriate rewards.
  • Creatures on the rooftops of Marleybone should be a little easier to avoid.
  • Listen for additional ambient sound effects as you adventure through many areas of the Spiral.
  • The MooShu quest "An Ailing Emperor" is a mainline quest, and can no longer be declined.
  • Groups of four players should no longer be split up when entering towers within Sunken City.
  • If you're dueling alone and are defeated while you still have an active Henchman, you will now have a full 30 second planning phase in combat that will allow you time to flee or purchase another Henchman.

Thanks for giving players time to do something if there's an active henchman on the field. That helps.

Was the addition of the Legendary Explorer badge intentional?

I appreciate the extra time when defeated while using an active henchman. I would also like to see, when in a dungeon with multiple layers, if there would be a way to keep an active henchman with you on to the next level until he or she is defeated. In other words, if you get a henchman on the first level of a dungeon and they survive, they would go with you to the succeeding levels until they are defeated. That would really help people who can't spend a lot of money in the game. Thank you.

Oh thank you. Marleybone was a terrible world but now I bet it's better since people aren't forced to be in duels with monsters.

Hi, is there anywhere that lets you know the size of an update prior to signing in and having the game auto-update? This would be excellent for those with limited bandwidth - also those with limited time who log on to do one or two things, only to find that you have to wait over half an hour for a download to complete prior to signing in. If I've missed out where this is, please let me know :)

This is a fantastic idea!! Please consider it for future updates :)

I like the updates, they are great. But when did henchmen get so expensive? I spend a lot of time doing trivia to earn crowns and only get barely enough to a level sixty henchmen. Why did the price for them go up?

One thing I have been wondering, how come the character does not have a natural resistance to spells from your main school? This would be a great update and make it a little more fair. EX: my character uses death magic so why does he not have a natural resistance to it since that is his main school of magic?

um excuse me lady greyrose :) i am a level 82 student and i was wondering if there is gonna be an update for the game were ALL students can craft level 48 spells like storm lord,scarecrow and fire dragon,ect that would be so amazing to craft storm lord where i can get a storm masterty amulet along with my ice spells and colossal and bring back the spell that took away 2 pips to the maximum anout of pips that the spells use (but make it NO PVP) the bosses and minions will be so easier please i hope you hear this well read it lol

I was wondering if maybe there could be an update where you could be able to trade items between wizards. Like, if my friend has a hat for life school but she can't sell it, and i am life school, maybe she could give it to me. And in return, i could give her one of my cloaks. Just an idea :)

I just want to commend whoever made the decision to make it easier to avoid the mobs in Marleybone. Marleybone was my least favorite place to be because every time my finger twitched just wrong or there was the teensiest bit of lag I would get dragged into yet another unneeded fight. It was beyond frustrating and I could not WAIT to get my wizards through there.
After this update I am actually enjoying myself on the rooftops. Yea I got pulled a couple of times but it was my own fault for stopping at the wrong place to type a response to a player. I really love it there now and I can just be careful and thoroughly enjoy the storyline. Thank you from the bottom of my Wizzy heart.

I'm pretty sure people would agree to this..but can you guys fix the fact that nearly every combat zone has monsters walking in a closed circle sometimes, it's very annoying if you get dragged into a fight and you have TONS of other stuff to do. Could you guys give some space between monster spawning? They are too close and sometimes I can't even get around a certain path without being dragged. Its risky you know? TRUST me, noone wants to deal with that when their busy. Hope theirs a solution!

Hi ms.greyrose :D I just got a hairstyle gifted to me from the crown shop. I chose to dye it light brown because i thought it would look nice. but when i saw it in the commons it looked like a weird bright orange color. i cant get another one and change the color because i dont have any crowns. I was wondering if this was some strange glitch or if it was supposed to be like that (please say glitch). Thank you!

Marleybone teaches us patience. You need to stop. Once stopped, pay attention to how the mobs move. They usually move in sets of three. Once you see that, you'll see your opening and can GO. I rarely get pulled into duels there anymore...unless I'm in a hurry. Then it's my fault.
