Can someone or a group of someone's please, please, please help me get past The Waterworks? I've gotten to the final battle 4 times and lost every time because I cannot even cast a spell on anyone with serious retribution. Even if I battle without a blade or trap that silly hammerhead says I do and cast a scarecrow. I just do not get it or understand what is going on. Can someone please help me? Without getting past this level I am afraid I am done with Wizard101. I am to a point where I need this and without it all is pointless. Do not understand why the end is so difficult and you cannot even battle without serious consequences. Just confused and frustrated! Can someone please help me? Thank you

Hi Sirch269
I have been through Waterworks once and still consider myself a complete and utter noob there.
One suggestion is to ask for help at wizard101central.com where you will find experienced wizards who are happy to schedule time with you.

Disclaimer: I haven't tried requesting help in the Mercinaries101 and The Assistance Specialists sub forums over there yet, as my quests have been reasonably easy compared to Waterworks, or I found enough wizards in-game at the time to pull through.

I have no doubt I will find an opportunity to do so, even if its to back to Waterworks.

Thanks to David and William Redblood who went through the Waterworks with me tonight. Many thanks again to you both. Thank you, thank you.

Now, I will complain some more! LOL. I guess I tried too many times to do Waterworks because I did not get any gear. No hat, not robe, no boots. Is that a glitch, does it just happen from time to time and I will need to farm it or did I fail too many times to earn good stuff? Just wondering. If an admin or developer could let me know, I would appreciate it. Can I craft the stuff? Where do you get it?

Thanks again to William and David. You are good people!

If you use wizard101central.com/wiki it helps a TON and wizard101 supports it. It's not some cheat site it is a very helpful site to help you with anything from pet snacks to bosses drops.

Www.Wizard101central.com/wiki

I started playing this game in the summer of 2011 when some random ad for wizard101 kept popping up. In two years I did not know about this site and got to level 60 something. I gotten of my friends hooked this year and became level 90 fire wizard (Sarah Sparklecloud) within a month or two because he found this site(yes he created a she account) he told me about this site and now I am currently level 94 in the moon cliffs in khrysalis.

The fansites have groups of players who volunteer to help with difficult areas like this. Have you tried posting on any of them and asking for help? Their response time is usually very quick (real time, no delays). Here is a link to one of them in case you are interested:

Not getting any of the gear isn't a glitch. You're supposed to farm until you get the gear or just give up. The Waterworks gear isn't craftable and is exclusive only to the Waterworks. There are 2 other dungeons that drop gear Atlantea (Level 70+ dungeon in Aquila) and Tartarus (Level 90+ dungeon in Aquila). Just keep farming until you get the gear that you want. Hope this helps

The instance was designed to farm for the level 60 gear. Some only have to repeat the instance a few times but many of us are in for a long haul. Those of us with out this level friends, group or team who have access to this instance can have a very rough go at it with many failed attempts.

In the early days of WW I did farm and got my Life and then on my Death the gear. I am just not "farm" material, it bothers me to have to repeat things so many times. After so many runs I did not want to repeat it again with my future wizards and found the Wintertusk crafted gear was an ok substitute. Altho the stats are not as good as WW gears they suffice to get you though. I used my Life wizard to craft all schools helmets and robes, some boots are not worth the bother for some schools and you can pass it though the shared bank. You have to complete the Seal of the Seven Seas crafting quest in Celestia. You craft them at the Ice Forge house in Grizzleheim. Gathering reagents was rough at first but once I got to know where they were it got easier.

The vendor is here:

Crafting the gear takes time also but it may be less defeating not having the "chance to get" in the end. All my wizards have at least the helmet for the extra blade it gives.
