Since I don't have many friends and they're never on, i usually stop by my garden.

I have my little routine. First, I check to see what realm I ended up in (if I don't like the realm, I will switch). Second, I check to see how much room I have in my treasure card storage (important for when I harvest my plants). Then, I visit my large castle for the dining table daily reward and my life house where I keep my fishbowl. Next step is to go to my red barn farmhouse to do my gardening, and then I am off to the bazaar to sell whatever I don't need that I received from my harvested plants and maybe do a little shopping. I then might swing by to see if any of my houses are on the top lists for the house tours (and they never are, lol ). Then, if none of my friends are on to help me (and they NEVER are anymore ), because I am stuck on a boss I cannot defeat by myself (not through lack of trying), I will either go train a pet if I have any energy left or play some sorcery stones (totally addicted to that game ).

I use to go straight to questing, but since the game has gotten so difficult, and so many of the friends I have made don't play anymore because of the difficulty, unless I feel like a glutten for punishment that day, I rarely quest anymore, because I am stuck. I know there are websites that wizards run that offer to help people, but I am never sure when I am going to be able to be on, so setting up a time to meet is very difficult.

Usually, since I'm still low lvl, I do all the quests that don't involve fighting. And then I go gardening and so on and so forth.

When I log into wizard101, I check my friends list to chat with them (Most of my favorite friends are never online anymore, which sucks :( ) and then I check my garden.
I'm level 10 in garden, not the best but i'm proud

Jul 24, 2011
I open my Quest journal and see what to do, but usually also check my Friends list for my Friends.

The first thing I do is go check my plants to see if they are doing alright

Aug 29, 2013
I check my quests of course!!

Jan 23, 2011
The first thing I do when I log on is check my friend's list. It's like something I can't help but to do.

Jan 13, 2013

Are you checking your Friends list or heading straight for a duel?
Is shopping your goal or is tending to your plants a priority?

Well, I decided to choose doing gardening first. Usually, what I do is while the spell is being casted on to the plants, I check my online friends at the same time (since some of the animations take awhile). So, I kinda do them simotaneously...

I hate gardening, it could help you get a lot of gold, but its kinda useless, and a waste of gold.
XD "it helps you get gold, but you have to use gold to get it". I couldn't agree more. Unless it's something like Evil Magma Peas, Couch Potatoes, Deadly Helephant Ears, Prickly Bear Cactus, etc, then it would be very helpful.

Usually I will check my friends list, watch some pvp, and do some housing tours or quests on other wizards

Most of the time, help my bro who makes me help him. When I don't I use the check the friends panel.

Jul 13, 2013
I look at all the pages in my spell book to check if I have the right gear on, admire my ghost dragon hybrid, rearrange my deck or equip another, and check how many more reagents I need for my crafting quest.
I do not check my garden, which is probably why every time I do visit my house, everything is dead. I've only ever successfully harvested one or two plants lol.

It's a tossup between Garden or Bazaar. My main I go to Bazaar (with most money), my alt I go to Garden. But everyday I do both. I had to have the Bazaar Tapestry just to make this daily trip easier.

Nov 11, 2010
My gardens are the first thing I check,I also love crafting ,just wish I could find that Potent Trap card for my life wizard,it seem my balance wizard had no problem finding it.

Feb 17, 2011
I've learned something with my friends, they are VERY chatty. So i immediately check my friends list to see if they're on so when i see the chat box i don't fall off my bed/chair in fright.

It depends what my focus is...

...I always click my friend screen after I log on, but...

...when I used to garden a lot, I would garden first;
but then I discovered I had no energy remaining to train pets.
Now, I only garden because I want to do the level 15 garden quests.

...and when I used to train pets, I would train pets first;
but then discover I had no energy to garden.
Now, I only hatch and train pets to get specific talents.

...and when fishing first came out, I attempted to do this first.
But fishing feels more time consuming then gardening or training pets. It also quickly exhausts your garden energy in the process. So now, I only fish out of necessity to obtain required fish in crafting recipes; and only for a few minutes at a time.

Check all gardens on all wizards.

Oct 09, 2011
I run around a little, then look at the bottom of my screen to see what I'm doing, unless I remember it from the area I'm in, for example a Dungeon Sigil or if I get pulled immediately after logging in.

Oct 27, 2009
I tend to make waste of my excess energy from my beastmaster robe. so I check my garde or train pets so I don't just lose energy.

Jul 05, 2014
I do both at same time. Open friends list AND duel right away. This game usually gives many hard quests ( which I LOVE ) so I ask for help a lot. ( Sorry! People I bothered! ) But I sometimes do pvp, or check my garden but yeah mostly duels and friends.
