Tower of Belle Regard

tower of belle regard

So my quest sends me to the Tower of Belle Regard.

I believe it means beautiful … um beatiful something or other, and it looks quite lovely from the outside. A beautiful flower bed just inside the elegant arched entrance, and colorful flowers blooming throughout the yard.

Until I step inside and get a good look at the Black Knight and his henchman, and now I’m thinking that belle regard just might mean beautiful death.
Is this some evil sorcerers twisted idea of a joke?
I believe I’ll be leaving now and start to turn and leave as I’m pulled into the fight. So now I’m hoping a couple Snow Angels and a Wooly Mammoth will take care of these two in short order.

Black Knight
And luckily that’s about all it took.
Ah, the life of an ice wizard.
I love it!

EggBert is back

eggbert

EggBert is back and that means that Easter is near. He has lots of cool items for sale like wands and pets or um “a pet” and there is a cute rabbit outfit for sale in the crown shop!

I decided to try and get the rabbit outfit to drop by fighting Lord NightShade.
I must have spent close to two hours in that dungeon but unfortunately didn’t get the outfit.

But I did get three Floppy-Eared rabbit wands one Hatchling wand (it has a baby chicken on it) and two Spring Egg wands and several crown gear items so that was pretty awsesome!

pet egg

EggBert sells the pet egg, and if you’ve never seen it before its an egg with little chicken legs poking out of the bottom.
Oh yeah here he is!
so um its an egg with legs … or something … yeah.
Okay okay its kind of cute!

Time for ch ch change

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(turn and face the strain)
Ch-ch-changes
Oh, look out you rock n rollers
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(turn and face the strain)
Ch-ch-changes
Pretty soon now you’re gonna get a little older
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time
I said that time may change me
But I can’t trace time

Oh right where was I.
Since I’d been wearing the same outfit for over 60 levels I decided it was time for a new look and then that David Bowie song started going through my mind.
This is much too early for me, it must be time for a cup of
C-C-C-Coffee.

Tower of Absolute Being

So after completing Zafaria including the Elephant Graveyard (and it’s dungeon).
And then the ominous Mirror Lake with its resident cheating bosses.
*que the depressingly dark and moody music*
Phew, that was tough but talk about some nice drops.
Woot!
Tower of Absolute Being
And now Merle has sent me to the Tower of Absolute Being in Mooshu, and you know I’m thinking “..woohoo its surprise party time!”
Or perhaps like Ace Ventura it’s time for me to receive the medallion of spiritual accomplishment and attain omnipresent supergalactic oneness…

uh yeah right until I see this guy and I’m guessing playtime is over.
Oh well, you know where to find me.

Morganthe you Jedi mind melder

morganthe
Oh Morganthe!
You evil sorceress and harbinger of doom..
What you hope to accomplish in your wildest imagination could never possibly become a reality.
Don’t try your Jedi mind meld against me!

Standing there in your designer boots, gucci hat tilted to the side.
Your glass orb staff, hand crafted and set with the finest gemstones that can be found.
The silk from your dresss shimmering and soft must have been spun by hand raised death spiders of Dragonspyre.
…oh yes very nice.. hmm

I just have one question though and would pay dearly for you to answer it…
And that is..
Where do you shop?

Tyrannosaurus Wrecks

tyrannosaurus rex
o.O
Oh dear what a mess you’ve made Tyra.
Now I have to find the mop and bucket and spend the morning scrubbing the floor.
And no time to make Mac & Cheese for you so sorry.
Work work work, seems its all I ever do around this place.

Ashley the talking tree

ashley in Dragonspyre

Oh look a talking tree named Ashley.
And you want me to what? Be a hero and go face Malistaire??!
Dude seriously this is a joke right?
Funny I can’t see any hidden camera’s, and I suppose you arent even going to offer to go with?
Wonderful.
Laugh it up funny man.
Remind me not to send you a Christmas card this year.

Can you gift me

Or sometimes they start off by asking “do you have crowns?”
No wait don’t run away, I’m not asking, I’m simply stating what others ask me.

If you’ve been playing this game for any length of time you’ve been asked that question so many times it makes your ears ring.
ack!
How do you respond to a question like that without hurting their feelings?
Surely you can’t just laugh and say I wouldnt gift you if you were the last wizard in this city!

Luckily I have developed a few genious and perhaps slightly devious responses for these types of questions.
So here you go and i hope they get you out of a tight spot at least once.

Water Lily vs. Frost Flower

Frost Flower

While trying to be patient in the bazaar waiting to buy more Water Lily I decided to do a little research on where I can find the source of these strange flowers. Best I can figure out these flowers are dropped by some person named Normal Harvest, I’ve heard of Harvest Lord in Wizard City but not this Normal Harvest character.
Hmm very odd since I’ve never heard or seen this person in the Spiral.
O.o
Then I think it finally registers, give me a moment.
Oh right! It’s just like the Frostflower sometimes gives Grendelweed!!

Moo Shu Ninja pigs

wizard101 ninja pigs

Oh No!
Ninja Pigs everywhere i look or go, and I’m about to be clobbered by a gnarly green Troll.
Now that i think about it we did have ham for dinner and this could be Karma, or is it Kismet. Either way perhaps an ice blade or two and a blizzard spell will get me out of this mess and back to the Wizard City Bazaar to find a new wall hanging for my new Moo Shu house.
Shopping, ya gotta love it.

GroundFrog Day

groundfrog

GroundFrog Day comes around every year on Feb. 2 and marks a pivotal day in the transition from winter to spring.

According to Merle Ambrose, if the groundfrog leaves his den and sees his shadow, it’s both a sunny day and a sign that we’re in for six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t see his shadow, winter will end soon.

Groundfrogs are demanding animals and quite honestly belong in the wild. Is there any upside? You bet. Similar to a piggle, my groundfrog will lovingly greet me when I come home, but then Bosco hastily scurries back into our pond and resumes catching crickets.
Catch you later GroundFrog gator.
