..The Herald Wizards Cast~

Happy Holidays, everyone! I'm going to Illinois to visit my Aunt tomorrow, then to my Grandmas, so I'll be gone 'til New Years. Remind me to do my 2011 review then!
First, just the end of Tarlac's progress through ZF, then a 12 Days of Wizards review.

Glad to see they made the Tomb easier at least.

*Ding* :) #2!

Bazaar failure.

Crafted some -Steven :P-Spiritcaller Drums to get that out of the way

And, sunset over Shining Mountain. Try not to miss that view when you're in that dungeon ^.^

And, now for something completely different--- 12 Days of Wizards analysis!
1: Charity Chrismoose: Didn't have the $$$ to buy, but nice idea from Kingsisle. Give it up for the pun & moose animation :P
2: Poem Contest: Nice prizes and brings out the poet in all of us. Cute :)
3: Free Light Strand: Buy - Pretty cool.. Free - WOOT!
4: Pack Sale: Hope those pet-trainers and Hoard-item-wanters got some joy out of this.
5: Arctic Ninja Pig: Awwwwww.
6: Holiday Decorations: Definitely my favorite, added to the fact it was all buy-able by gold, though I accidently bought 2 Snowmen with crowns.. bah. Thanks for the real tree and epic items!
7: Snowman Transformation: Probably the least exciting, but, well.. it IS free! Incidentally, the Mega Bundle at Blockbuster is a neat idea, they could use more business with the Netflix competition ... I'm getting off track, aren't I?
8: Candy Cane Mount: CHEAP! ... But crowns-only and I have enough mounts already. Sweet, nonetheless!
9: Free Nightcap: Useful for those new wizards.. I got mine last year :P
10: Boon Tree: Not sure what the Elder rewards are, but didn't seem worth it. Not charity and no extra seed drop? Sigh.
11: Mount Sale: Convenient for the beggars in the Commons, right? :P
12: Snowball Pet: Rock + Snow-shape = Snowball pet. Anyways, it IS cute, May Cast Freeze is an interesting talent too.

Well, that's it, an upcoming New Years coming in a week or so :)
Have a great week, staying home or going out to visit, everyone!

Gnome More

Happy December, everyone! :) I know I'm starting to listen to carols and I'm getting a tree tomorrow. Speaking of, there's a temporary new layout for Christmas until 2011 ends. Lemme know if there's any problems (such as not being able to able to read very well due to clash of colors, etc.)

Forgot to take a picture of this Zamunda garden while questing on Arlen.. lol, zebra-fountain

Nice new addition, helps out the rarity of Sunstones just a little bit.

Its not what it looks like o_o

This kind of reminds me of one of the first notable quotes in the game, as you enter Unicorn Way: NONE SHALL PASS!

Is there water under here? O_o

533 gold from my pet for this ;P
Aaaand.. level 68! Time for Gnomes! :)

Travelocity mascot much?

Thats not exactly going to help the lawn..

Woot ^.^
Here's the questline if you're interested (not me, of course, credit goes to the owner who happens to sound like KBB. Dont'cha think so, Kev? :P)

First casting happens to be in a boat..

Epic timing ;)

Didn't notice this before, either, but cute all the same. Some ghosts happen to be nice, and, well, drummers.

And, well, thats it! lol, I'll be taking a break from ZF to do my Death Duo (just started the Grand Arena) by next week, maybe get back to Housing and such a bit too.

Happy Adventuring!

Zafaria - The End

This place, epic as it is, has to be the area on the farthest reaches of the game. To get here from the Baobab, you need to:
  1. Go to Baobab Market, walk to dock, sail boat to Stone Town
  2. Take short walk to other end of Stone Town, board boat to Waterfront
  3. Step over, board boat to Drum Jungle
  4. Take walk to other end of Drum Jungle, avoid many gorillas, enter Elephant Graveyard
And, voila---finally. But hey, its pretty much worth it.

I say "pretty much" because, yes, there's still spiders. Ick.

All else, its really cool. Grave-markings with epic swirls, check.

Bath time? Really?

Hopefully its jacuzzi-temperature :P

Its not easy being green, right? (Sorry, I just watched The Muppets :P)

Eerie dead bustling graveyard square, anyone?

Kinda looks like a yoga room for the deceased.

:D that doesn't mean anything though, ZF isn't over yet!

Drums that look like cheese-crackers. Yay.

I can has jewelry?


Morganthe+Glowing Sickle=o:

Talk about cute elephants :3

Not a good sign..

Kinda strange an elephant with a huge nose and some blue candles take me to an ominous lake. Then again, its Zafaria.


Since when did we go back to Celestia?

I have a more important question--how the heck are you living under here?

Even the Basilisk is struggling to breathe, but still has enough power to kill a zebra who wants to be a lion anyways.

Learned what Morganthe does the hard way :P

Add the zebra to the pedestals - he's sleeping with the fishies.

What person would build bug statues underwater?

Looks like she's the answer.. this can't end well.

*witty caption needed*

Anyone notice the land is sculpted like Falmea's hair? Hmm..

Hard to see, but a friends final Efreet hit ^.^

Great, still not done yet, and the lake's been drained *eyeroll*

Still looks pretty epic though, discounting the bug-statues come alive. Ick.

Aw, c'mon, Morganthe chickened out of a battle again -.-

Repeat yourself much?

This is what makes a dungeon worth the battling. Awesome. Just from one battle with some storm spiders (loot>ick factor)

Next world>HW from Cyrus Drake. Pleeeease?
And, thus endeth Zafaria. Disadvantages being the excessive minion-battling (pretty ironic, Tarlac's finishing the dreaded Savannah Fire Lion-Ravager quest as I write this), but overall definitely worth the not-so-long wait :P. Maybe it will take a year again before the next one, we'll see.. maybe before my birthday even? Good blog-poll material.

Anyways, future plans time!
-Do ZF on Tarlac
-Keep gardening, maybe pet train, housing, etc.
Soon as I get the Super Bundle (Christmas hopefully :P), the Hornocerous should really help with dual-boxing, so..
-Quest Death duo (in Grand Arena, KT) some, do ZF on Mycin/Sophia (Storm/Ice should be cool to deal with)

Well, my blog posts will probably go down a bit now that ZF is done, and I have to go, but I'll post something next Saturday or Sunday :)

Happy Adventuring!
