New! Deck Renaming Feature

1
AuthorMessage
Administrator
Players now have the option to choose a new temporary name for a deck they have in their inventory!

Look for the new button on your Spell Deck Tab that will let you rename your deck! (Press P on your keyboard when you're not in a duel to bring up your Spell Deck)


Click the button and you can choose from a selection of options to rename your deck. This will allow you to better organize different decks for different bosses or encounters, as well as PvP. The Deck name you choose will display in your backpack, however the original name of the Deck will display when you inspect the deck by placing your mouse cursor over its name.





In accordance with our ongoing safety protocols, players will not be able to enter their own name for decks but can choose from the menu to create a new deck name.

That's great! Makes it so much easier to distinguish between boss, mob, small, large, and pvp decks.

WOOT!

I love this! I only wish farming was one of the words we could use for naming.

I have to agree. I have started running my Life in Az again and helping a friend as well and have found I only remember which deck I used for Bosses and General. With all the decks I do carry, now, I can reconstruct them and name them for their purpose.

@Girlyfiedgirl, since it appears "NONE" might be an option, Try using that for a farming deck. At least you will know not to equip it for anything else. I haven't tried naming any of mine yet, but I also have a farming deck as do many others. It would be nice if KI would add "Farming" to the options.

Favorite update. Maybe add choices of "1v1, 2v2, 3v3, or 4v4"?

You can say "PvP 1" "PvP 2" "PvP 3" etc. Some more options for names would be nice though. "Mobs" "Healing" "Boost" or "Buff". It's very nice to have the feature anyway :D

You could do "PvP 1", "PvP 2" "PvP 3", and "PvP 4"

I've been saving the treasure cards I need for crafting in one deck so that I don't use or sell them on accident. So a "saved" deck title would be nice, otherwise I really like the naming.

That is a great idea!
Can you have names like "mob" and "farm" in there as well? That would be perfect, as we call our decks that already in practice.

As we all know there has been a new update in which we can change our deck names such as "ice boss 1" etc etc. I was all excited blah blah blah but when I clicked on my deck page or pressed "p" the new button is not there . Is there something you need to do first? Is this option only for players that pay membership with credit cards/on the website? I have a prepaid card membership. Thank you for all replies .

It's only on the test realm right now, it hasn't gone live yet.

My opinion -
These decks are already on a specific School Wizards so having the school name (Ice, Storm, Balance, Etc) as an option is not so useful.

Useful terms to consider for Deck names for some wizards are:
  • Farm - For quick hitting decks for farming bosses for gear or gold
  • Store - For storage of Treasure cards that they use for crafting or future use
  • Mob - Again for fights with non-Boss npc characters.

I personally maintain an Excel Spreadsheet that is a lot more detailed that what is being offered in this update. But of course that is me and the way I like to maintain my decks. For those interested you can view a picture of my excel spreadsheet on W101Central here:

The school names could be used for the school we are fighting - like "ice boss" might have ice shields and pierce in it. I'd like to have Mob, Heal, Farm, Buff, Tank, Big Hit labels as well as the ones now. Thank you for adding this feature!

A menu of boss names & places would be awesome. If the deck naming interface scrolled like the one we use now to name our wizards there'd be room for all the current deck name options, and it could be expanded to include specifics - Luska - Hit -, Luska - Buff, Aztaca - Myth - Mobs, Mirror Lake - Ice - Mob, Farming - Halfang, etc. I love that deck naming has been added. It can be made more useful with more text options. Thanks!

Off-topic, but very important - specific boss, place, pet, and item names should also be added to the menu chat.

This is a fabulous idea, but boss specific would not be necessary if there was high demand locations:
Waterworks - Tower of the Helephant - Mirror Lake

With that we can at least name the deck Waterworks 1, Waterworks 2 for both bosses that reside.

Along with the previous suggestions - Minions or Mobs - Store - Farm

Any possibility of "helper deck"? My death has completed every quest I can find, so I don't use him much, except for farming and helping others.

I also agree Farming should be added But other than that this is the best idea i think KI has come up with i was starting to not like wizard101 but now this is great Because of pvp i can finally sort all my decks out :)

That's SO awesome! I have many different decks and get the same decks as drops and when it comes time to sell sometimes I may sell the wrong deck and have to recreate it all over again.

Yes

Also, allow us to select the names of certain bosses, e.g. Luska, Belloq, Sylster, Cipactli, Ponce de Gibbon, Jabberwock all require very specific deck setups that aren't useful against generic bosses.

If you can pick the boss name from a list, that is consistent with safety concerns and allows us to help out wizards going through these dungeons more efficiently.
