the Flowers of May

April showers bring May flowers, as they say! Summer is almost here and we hope you are enjoying sunny skies. In Wizard101, April brought lots of shiny new updates including the Jewel Socketing system, One-Shot Gauntlets, Lava Fishing, Join a Team, Skeleton Key Bosses and more! And for the flower aficionados of the Spiral, new planters were added that hold up to three plants. Have you found any creative ways to use these new decorative planters? We’d love to see the clever combinations of plants that you display. Send your screenshots to us via email at community@wizard101.com.

Helpful Hybrid Hints

On the last episode of KingsIsle Live, we had a question about little known facts in Wizard101. This got us to thinking about all of the hidden hybrids waiting to be found in the Pet Hatchery. Hybrid pets result from hatching two adult pets and getting a result that is not the same as either of the two parent pets. This can be an entirely unique pet, only available through hatching a hybrid, such as the Archfiend, Grimzilla, Lifezilla and many others. Hybrids can also be a pet that is different from the two adults hatched that isn’t unique, but provides another avenue for obtaining a desired pet. An example of these that we shared on KI Live was the combination of the Black Spider and a Clockwork Golem that can result in a Spider Golem. Also, two Red Gobblers can hatch a Pet Rock and a Minotaur and Treant have the possibility of hatching a Life Minotaur. We shared that there are 100 of these types of combinations that have yet to be discovered in game!

For those studious Wizards of the Hatchery, below are a few more hints for combinations that may produce unexpected results. Remember, hybrids can be rare so if you don’t get it the first time, don’t give up. Good luck, Wizards and happy hatching!

Frostman + Seraph = ?

Black Cat + Christmas Elf = ?

Fire Elf + Grumpy Snowman = ?

Pale Maiden + Dragon = ?

Krok + Brown Spider = ?

Tough Troll + Brown Spider = ?

New Teleport Tapestries

Teleport Tapestries are those handy dandy housing items that can help you hop around the Spiral more easily. There are many available through crafting already, but we’ve added 13 new Tapestries in the latest game update. They will eventually have recipes to be crafted as well, but for now these can only be acquired through contests held by official Wizard101 fan sites!

The new Tapestries go to popular locations throughout the Spiral including: the Pet Hatchery, Castle Tours, the Dye Shop, Vestrilund, Zocalo, Bastion, Crescent Beach, Floating Mountains, Drum Jungle, Dragonspyre Academy, Crustacean Empire, the Floating Land and Crab Alley.

With the latest update to Wizard101, fan sites have been hard at work covering all the details.
