 Wings on Bosses
It seems many young Wizards are diligently looking for the new Winged Mounts on the high level bosses of the Spiral.

We've just discovered that they're not dropping at a high enough rate, and we will be adjusting this rate in the future.

Until then, give the poor bosses a break and continue with your adventures in the Spiral. We will let you know when the drop rate has been reset.

The Price of Exploiting
Recently players found an exploit that allowed them to unfairly obtain the new winged mounts.

Players who participated in this exploit will have the items removed from their accounts. We will be recovering the item(s) and issuing a credit to the account equal to the gold amount paid. Players may experience disconnects while this inventory recall takes place. Players are welcome to re-purchase the item(s) according to the posted Crown pricing.

If you participated in this exploit, know that we will not tolerate abuse of the systems in place. Using exploits in game is a violation of the Terms of Use and continued exploitation may result in permanent account bans.

New! New! New!
The Crowns SHOP has some new items!

New Mounts!
One of the most requested Mount additions has been a pair of wings, and we've got TWO for you to choose from: Seraph Wings and Bat Wings. Both types of wings can be purchased for either gender! These Mounts are only available to purchase from the Crowns Shop for Crowns, but they can also be found on high level bosses of the Spiral!

New Weapons
Sometimes a wand just doesn't make quite the statement you were going for, so here are three Epic Weapons: The Ascendant Staff, the Phosphorescent Maul and the Cerulean Edge! Like the new Mounts, these weapons are only available to purchase from the Crowns Shop for Crowns, but they can also be found on high level bosses of the Spiral!

New Outfits
Those of you who remember the old retired Crowns gear will rejoice, these two new Epic outfits are made up from very powerful items with crazy powerful stats and cards! These items DO have a level restriction on them, but any level Wizard can buy them! If you see a small lock icon on these items in the SHOP that only indicates you cannot WEAR the item now, but you can purchase it, and store it for later. Again, these items are only available to purchase from the Crowns Shop for Crowns, but they can also be found on high level bosses of the Spiral (the bosses drop the individual items, not the entire sets).

These high level additions are just the beginning of new items that will be introduced to the Crowns Shop, because a young Wizard must be prepared for things to come....

   And we're back!
Billing is back up and players are able to make Membership and Crowns purchases once again. Thank you so much for your patience and see you in the Spiral!

Temporary Interruption in Billing Service
Well 6:30pm Central US time and we still have no word on the progress of this outage. We realize this is frustrating to our players but it does not affect your ability to log in to the game or play Wizard101, so keep playing and we'll keep you up to date on the status of this outage right here on the Ravenwood News.
As of 2pm Central US time we have no updates on this matter. Our payment processing service is working very hard to fix this issue as it affects many online retailers. Thank you for your patience and we'll let you know more as we are updated.
Our payment processing service is currently experiencing an outage, and players will be unable to make credit card purchases on the website until this outage is over. More information will be posted as it is made available to us.

  Another Friendship Festival Ends
It's that time of year, again, young Wizards. Time for me to pack my bags and take my leave of the Spiral until the next Friendship Festival. I'm so happy that so many piggles have found good homes this year, and have fun casting your spells with those decorative wands.

I'll be here for a little longer but expect me to leave the Spiral later today. Happy Friendship Festival everyone!

❤Valentina
