Widescreen Warrior reviews Wizard101 !
"After playing for 6-10 hours, I had realized everyone had went to bed and I just tinkled away another Saturday playing video games. However I also realized this game was something special."
Wizard101 gets a glowing review from Widescreen Warrior this week. This page contains language that may not be suitable for all our young wizards. Click here to read the Widescreen Warrior review.
Don't forget to clean out your backpack and bank!
Having your backpack and bank over capacity can make your wizard less efficient when traveling to different areas completing quests. The easy solution to this issue is selling unwanted items at the bazaar - you'll be surprised at how much gold you can earn. Selling your extra items could even help you save up enough for that house you've been wanting... or spend extra gold hatching with all your new Petapalooza pets!
New pet available in the Crown Shop - The Evil Sandman!
The Evil Sandman has arrived! He's round, he's sandy, and he's evil. Head to the Crown Shop to check out this sandy little guy and how he can help you in your quests!
A Wizardly Chat Message from Mr. Lincoln
I'd like to take a moment and offer a friendly reminder that ALL filtered chat is monitored and every report of misconduct is thoroughly investigated.
The faculty at Ravenwood has made allowances in the chat filter to offer a measure of open communication between wizards, and we believe that Ravenwood students are quite capable of using the chat system appropriately.
Please note, however, that any attempt to circumvent the filter or engage in improper dialogue can result in the loss of filtered chat privileges or full suspension from school (this includes exchanging of personal information, harassment of other wizards or other inappropriate dialogue*).
Also, those students that choose to harass other players by issuing false reports will be dealt with directly as well.
Wizard101 is a game for all to enjoy and you doing your part to keep Wizard City and all the other worlds a wizard-friendly place is sincerely appreciated by the faculty and fellow wizards!

Time for Feedback Friday!
