February 2023



Hey all! Welcome back to another fun-filled Community Newsletter! First things first, we hope you had a fantastic Holiday and Thanksgiving! We are going to start this newsletter off with the EU folks on the other side of the pond. Hope y’all enjoy and we’ll see you during Friendship Festival this 2023!

So, the highly awaited Quality of Life (QoL) Update for Wizard101 EU has arrived! While Nana was baking cookies over in Karamelle, we've been working on getting this update out to you as soon as possible with tons of exciting new content to explore!

The 4th Arc Continues and players who have completed Karamelle can also now pick up a new mainline quest, "Old is New Again." in the Arcanum. Uncover lost mysteries that set the stage for our next world release!

Thank you all for stopping by our first KI Live of the year! On the show, we teased new content for BOTH Wizard101 and Pirate101, discovered new and profound ways to appreciate art, and only lost a couple brain cells.

Missed the show? No worries! You can watch the recording on YouTube:

Adam Roush is our Senior Concept Artist here at KingsIsle Entertainment. Sometimes Adam will create a series of concept art for a particular scene or character. Here are a few concepts of his most recent pieces this month:

“Here's the Auspicious Rabbit Pet, which is very cute. I love designing these Lunar New Year pets :)” - Adam Roush

“Here's temple designs from the Catmandu Sanctuary Bundle. It's based on Nepalese architectural style with a strong cat & yarn theme. I had a lot of fun adding those feline motifs, like the ears on the roof or cat-shaped archways.” - Adam Roush

"Here's the Lucky Cat pet from the Catmandu Sanctuary Bundle. Just a very floofy kitten :)." - Adam Roush

"Here's the Chimney Sweep Gear from the Winter SOF. It was fun adding in subtle fantasy details, like the leather patches on the shoulders, the diamond buttons, and the stitching on the jacket." - Adam Roush


For this month’s art spotlight, we are showcasing Retro, Korppi, Ashley, and Varllaiart! These were our 2022 Winter Wonderland Digital winners, give them some love!

“Decided to draw the Valet with my wizard, I think they would get along great while baking together ^^ (and maybe without the Irks...)” - Retro

“I'm a 3D Artist and I decided to create an Irk causing some mischief. The Irk's design is so fun and unique, I really enjoyed creating this piece x).” - Korppi

“I chose the banana spider because I thought they were a unique creature and absolutely adorable in the snow. I chose for one of them to be throwing a giant snowball at the other.” - Ashley

“I chose the character Maxine Rockhoppierre from Wizard101 for my artwork because I have always liked "semi-antagonist" characters. Despite her waspish character at the beginning, I like her a lot - she is very memorable.” - Varllaiart

We would love to see more screenshots and art from the community for next month’s newsletter. Do you have something amazing to share? Send it to us in an email to community@kingsisle.com! We’re always interested in showing off more fan art, gameplay guides, videos, and other content.

Thanks, Wizards!
