No Place Like Home

Welcome to the August 2015 Ravenwood Bulletin Newsletter! This summer has been Ultra fun and we hope you are enjoying all of the new updates to Wizard101 including Ultra Pets, Ultra Seeds, Ultra Dungeons and more! The summer is also the time to celebrate the talents of housing decorators throughout the Spiral, with Paige Moonshade’s Annual Best Little Dorm in Wizard City contest. Congratulations to all of the talented Wizards who won that contest and dazzled everyone with their creations. House decorating is one of the most creative ways to play in Wizard101. With such a wide variety of houses and items, players can make creations that are truly unique! One great way to check out your fellow Wizard’s creations is to visit Myrella Windspar at Castle Tours. Check out some of the top castles, rate them and even get inspired to decorate your own.

And for those of you that love to decorate and build your own castle, there is much to look forward to, coming soon to Wizard101!


Compete in the Grand Tourney


Grand Tourney Gauntlet Bundle

A brand new bundle is available at select Walmart locations! This Avalon-themed gauntlet allows you to compete in the Grand Tourney to win Lady Blackthorn’s favor. Look like a knight in the Valiant Jouster’s Armor and Lance while riding your matching Jousting Destrier, the first dyeable mount in Wizard101! Like a trusty squire, the Squirerel pet will be by your side in battle. And choose one month of membership or 5,000 Crowns! Learn more.

Some fan sites including Valerian, Stars of the Spiral, Frostcaller, Duelist101, Wizards of the Spiral, Swordroll, Blaze Lifehammer and Zenmaster Blue took a look at the gauntlet and shared their thoughts.
