Basking in the Sun and Lighting up the Night

For many, July is a time for fun in the sun and fireworks at night! It’s also time for Christmas in July! We’ll be starting a new batch of sales in July, announcing a new bundle, and even getting a new item or two in the Crown Shop. Even better, if you like fishing, this month may have a special surprise for you (beyond the Shark Week we’ve just been enjoying. Did you catch your Warhammerhead shark?)

As hinted to on KI Live, there is a Test Realm currently planned for some time in July. We’ll talk a bit more about what was hinted to below, so read on for news, events, and more fan fun!


Best Dorm Room Contest


So You Think You’re a Decorator?

For several years in July, Paige Moonshade has been hosting a really really BIG contest centered on a really really small decorating space in Wizard101. Even better, there are some amazing prizes to be won, like the Darkmoor bundle house, and thousands of Crowns! Competition is steep and typically wizards go all out for this contest to make their dorm room truly the best in Wizard City, but that shouldn’t stop you from entering as there are a lot of prizes.

It all begins July 8th, and more details will be coming to Paige’s website soon! Make sure you’re watching her site for contest rules!

Best of luck, decorators! You might want to take a quick look back through some of the winning entries from previous years to get a good idea of what’s been done in the past:

KI Live Returns


Ready, Set . . . It’s KI Live!

KI Live made a big comeback last month with a livestream event full of fun and surprises. If you missed it, here’s a rebroadcast from YouTube that you can watch.

If you don’t have time for the Livestream, then you can read the highlights on MMORPG.com in an article penned by Vanessa Mythdust!

If we’re lucky, the next KI Live might even have some footage from the Test Realm that was hinted to on this livestream. There are a lot of interesting improvements and fun coming to Wizard101 soon including some Friends List updates and a new skeleton key boss that’s going to be both challenging and rewarding! We don’t want to spoil all the surprises, but some great changes are on the way to Wizard101.
