Hello everyone! I'm back! Uncharacteristically, I was away visiting the cold north (in places not unlike Wintertusk), and while I enjoyed my trip, I'm certainly happy to be back where it's warm.

Standard disclaimer applies: We do not guarantee to use each and every idea submitted, and questions we pose may or may not be pertaining to things we are currently working on, or will ever undertake. Sometimes, there are just technical limitations that make changing things difficult to impossible, and though we possess all manner of magic wands here, there are technological beasts out there that are beyond our grasp. Sometimes, we may not feel it is within the spirit and vision of the spiral to add or change something. Also, we realize that some of these topics may have been addressed before in other threads - sometimes it's good to pick up a discussion again. Chances are I have read your threads and would like to hear more!

I got to thinking while I was up there - how would a Wizard survive up there in perilous conditions? So, I figured I'd poll the experts - if you young Wizards were trapped on a glacier, what three in game things (spells, pets, mounts, gear, etc) would you want with you to help you survive?

I'm pretty certain I'd want my firecat pet with me to keep me toasty... but I want to hear the creative ideas from you! Have a great weekend all! ::grin::

I would want to take my Blaze Beast to keep me warm, My WaterWorks gear for good resist, and my frost giant spell to protect me. :)

I think i would use my gear for the cold, my mount to run away from animals that eat meat. Also i would use guardian spirit if i die. I would also use a wild fire treant to keep warmth from its fire. :? :?

A dark redwing mount, to keep me company, warm me with its fire breath, and to carry me over the ocean as a means to escape, an aincent spear of power to fish the sea with for food, and to defend myself from anything that might attack, and, oh I'll just throw in a pet rock because I had an urge to make friends with a random inanamate object and name it Wilson.

I would want Frozen Armor to protect me from the cold, wyldfire to help warm me up and possibly slowly melt the ice away over time and and my firecat pet lord chase to cuddle and work with me to break through the block of ice we were trapped in.

If i were on a glacier, I would want my Grizzleheim fur's to keep me warm. And of course I would want my Epic Firecat to keep me warm also. Well, for a mount I would want a swift shark so i could escape to somewhere with lots of spicy fire food!

Hmmm lets see hydra mount to get around it is the second largest mount so it could also scare of things and the fire head could make a fire, my pet brave hound to heal me, and my sword of kings just so when i get bored of running from things

I as a fire archmage with a critical rating of 295 and damage of 66% could easily break out of any little glacier, and my Mega Efreet with 15% resist, 6% damage, unicorn, and spiretly could help me burst my way out.

Hmm . . . I would take my deck in case there happen to be any monsters there (there probably would be. I mean, it's the Spiral, right?) If you want me to narrow that down to just one spell, it would be Fire Dragon. I would also take Patch, my Fierce Hound, for company and help in any battles, and potions!
Of course, if I could, I would just take my palace and somehow set it up on the glacier.

I'd take my Guardian Spirit in case I had any accidents, a grapes of wrath plant for food, and I'd bring forest lord along to stay warm sleeping in his furry belly, and protect me!

I would take my Ra spell (Cause its the dad of balance xD) Emma the Fierce Hound because she gives me health and mana and also Spritely. And Dragon wings. To me its the fastest "mount" ever.

Wolf Strongshield lvl 63 (Still in CL .3.)

By the way, welcome back Falmea! I feel bad for you in the cold xD

Wintertusk crafted gear, it seems fuzzy, warm and cozy ^^
Dragon mount, it can make fire and hopefully fly me away by chance ^^
And i'd take my deck full of spells and treasure cards, most imporant could be Talos... would be nice to summon help now and then in case of danger :)

I would bring a sled pulled by hounds or a reindeer, to take me to my snowcave with hot springs in the basement. I am sure to bring my ice prism because I would be using it a lot there.

Well if I'm assuming we're fishing for new in game stuff ...
* Glacier Gear = a special crown set of gear that added +5% universal resist to what ever you stitched it to. But this gear is special because it's the first "hybrid gear." So it takes the single stat of the Glacier Gear Set and adds it to the stats of the item your stitching to. So if you stitch the Glacier Helm to your Green Wardens Energetic Mask lvl 80 - you'd have an item that looked like either one depending on the column you chose during stitching - but it would end up with all the Green Warden lvl 80 stats + an extra 5% universal shield.

* Glacier Beast = a new pet that's the sparkling white with light blue (icy) highlights Ice version of a Forest Lord Pet. It's ten talents are: Spritely, Spell Proof, Sharp Shot, Ice Dealer, Ice Giver, Ice Sniper, May Cast Woolly Mammoth, May Cast Melt, May Cast Tower Shield, May Cast Legion Shield. (In keeping with an ice pet.) It's Max Stats are all 350 so we can start hatching up our pets to Max Stats to bring out the new 12% talents.

* Glacier Chateau = a new house that we can port to like all others - but this is like the warmest coziest Swiss ski lodge ever. The yard is not a glacier, but it's a mix of green and snow - like a Spring melt was in progress. A frozen lake with ice fishing would be cool. But the fish would be some kind of reward like the genie or dragon in the other houses. Some way of skating on the lake would be cool. (A shwoopie feeling like when you go down the waterfall in the little Wizard City house.) None of the rustic feeling of the Winter Tusk houses. It should be all "finished" like a ski lodge would be. The yard would be wide and open for gardens and pets.
