We’ve recently made some new changes to Wizard101 that most of you are already aware of. A few of these changes seem to merit just a bit more explanation, so we’re taking this opportunity to do so.
Concerning the new list of charms . . .
Ever wonder how many blades you have on your character and what those all are? We now have a great way to see all of those “buffs” you have; however, it’s just a bit hidden and you might just miss it if you don’t go hunting for it. To see a list of what your character has circling them, all you need to do is roll your mouse over the school symbol below and to the left of your name while in combat.
The percentages given in this list are also going to be a different color based on what kind of spell was used. For reference:
- White = Trained/Item spells
- Gold/Yellow = Treasure Card spells
- Light Blue = Pet spells
- Purple = Spells that have been enchanted.
Concerning the new friends list changes . . .
We’re sure you noticed this! Yup, we also made some Friends list changes. Did you know you can simply press F to bring up your friends list? Press “F” twice and you be taken into your advanced friends list where you can now find your True Friend Codes button. Press “F” a third time and it will automatically close!
When you click on your friend’s name in the friends list, click a player name from chat, or click on a player in the world, you then gain access to several options like adding to friends, adding to group, or inspecting. This screen is also where you will find the report button and the ignore button, they are the red buttons on the right hand side, which is an important point! In the old friends list, you could sometimes accidentally ignore or remove a friend because all “good” and “bad” buttons were in a row. "Now the “good” green buttons are on the left and the “bad” red buttons (for reporting and ignoring) are on the right."
Concerning the chat box . . .
Finally, you can now change your text size and chat window shading in the chat box! To change your text size, you’ll want to press the Escape key to open your options and click on the third joystick icon. Here you can increase your text size.
The chat box shading is a bit trickier to find. To change your shading, you click on the little asterisk symbol right below where you find the “X” to close the chat box. This brings up a slider so you can make your chat box background darker or lighter (which can be really helpful in those snowy areas of the Spiral).
Thank you for your continued feedback on our user interface. We appreciate your input.
