I've been with wizard since the beginning myself and I am a (Child of the 80s) and so an older wizard myself.. I have deterred to other realms outside the spiral (Norrath, Azeroth, Tyria to name a few) but I always found myself back here in the spiral and honestly the only real place to make myself at home... Not to mention being a myth and all I got the pigsie spell which without a life amulet is just for amusement... but I am enjoying the game full heartedly even after 9 years... Its a real shame though that I just got my main to max.... Contemplating on a new wizard ( Ive been dabbling with ice as my secondary) My myth has all gauntlets to date on him and the only exception is the "Fantastic voyage" which I do hope they bring online so I can at any moment whisk myself away without really leaving the house LOL ...
I'm not really the oldest Wizard, but I started playing with my parents when I was really little. They split up so I stopped playing for a few years but I finally managed to get back into it and play again. I'm really excited to play the newer worlds and the ones I didn't get to play. I'm pretty sure that I found Wizard101 from an add, but it might've been from the Toontown community as well.
I am an older wizard and have been with the game since the beginning. My oldest child has a wizard of her own, but I must admit, it is mostly me that plays. Life keeps interrupting, so I am not here but sporadically these days but I always come back.
I started in 2009 with my grandson who is now an adult....it was springbreak for him and I downloaded this new game for ME because when he got back home(out of state) we could play together...we did for a shortwhile and he went on to other games but I was hooked...never played any type of online/xbox games before....its been a lot of fun .....I kinda chuckle when some say they are "older players" but I say I'm a reallllly older player...why I knew Ambrose as a kid! LOL However would like to wander with a fellow O.P. if you are looking for a friend. Gabrielle Ravenwalker (87balance), usually in Centaur on multicolor hare. sometimes in Blossom.
I'm a 60's child. America landing on the Moon was the most remembrance and exiting time in my life. I'm hoping there'll be a Mars landing before I leave this beautiful Planet. I Start playing Wizard101 7 years ago after I heard it's similar to Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. Now I can't stop playing this awesome game.
I had intended to ask how many were still playing. Or if you started way back as child (ie my own kids who now all adults) and would consider yourself an older wizard.
It seems to have morphed into a reboot of the "Older Wizards" thread.
Fine by me.

In this case, I guess I would be considered an "older wizard." I started playing in 2009 (and continue to play), but I never became a member, for my parents did not trust me with their credit card. It is only later that I convinced my parents to use their credit card in exchange for $10 to get a month of membership. I am currently in high school—soon to graduate next year—, and I now use my own card to pay.
