HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GRIZZELHEIM!

Today marks the One Year Anniversary of the release of Grizzelheim! If you'd like to know more, check out the July 2009 Updates on Wizard101.com!
Inspired by Norse mythology, Grizzleheim is an airy, outdoor landscape of snowy mountains, glacial ridges and towering trees that is home to three new Wizard101 tribes - Bears, Wolves and Ravens.

To get started on your new adventure, be sure to visit Baldur Goldpaws in Olde Town, you can't miss him, or his Viking Ship!

Ah yes, the Viking Ship. Those were the days. More simpler times where quests were easy and people hated you because you were a low level.

Guess what ELSE came out in July?!


That's right the bazaar also made its first appearance in July of 2009. The new bazaar allows wizards to buy items sold by other wizards!

All prices are based on my current stock of items, so shop often for that special bargain, young Wizards! And don't worry, if someone sells an item on Wu Realm, and you're on Pixie, you'll see it in my inventory - I've got all the Realms covered!


Pretty freaking awesome, if I do say so myself. :D




Crafting also made its way into the Spiral this month one year ago. Crafting introduced hundreds of new items to the Spiral, and a unique way to get those items! Also, the quests to craft in each world were introduced! Recipes and reagents were introduced, and thus, wizards began their crafting careers in the Spiral.


There were also many different chat enhancements, such as the introduction of Open Chat for those over 18 years of age, "Click to Select" or left clicking the name in the chat window to select the wizard and right clicking to send them a message in private, the True Friend Code turning your friends' names green, grouping, and new Privacy Settings.

We also find the new Stun Block! (Oh, so THIS is the month to blame?!) Haha, nah, I've got nothing against the Stun Block. :P You can purchase this spell with Training Points from Sabrina Greenstar in the Wizard City Fairegrounds.
