Unintended Consequences of Helping!

As those of you who follow our blog would know, I enjoy helping other Wizards.  In fact, Alia and I have been helping people since we were less than level 10.

Sometimes though, there can be some unintended consequences of helping!

The other day, I was at the Bazaar and I got a call for help from a friend in Khrysalis.  Only being level 88, I hadn't been there yet, but I figured, why not?  So, I tried to port and (of course) the dreaded "that area is not ready yet" message popped up.  It loaded as quickly as it could, but that still took time and I feared for Anna's safety!

Finally - I could get there.

I ported in and was a little surprised.  The bad guys looked a lot like Storm Elementals.  In fact, they only had a little over 3,000 health?  It was kind of disappointing.

So, a pumped up Meteor from me and a Dragon from Anna and we were done.

She had a few more to get, so off we went again.  I had just fired up a big Dragon and then - power failure irl!  Bugger - I was gone from the fight.  I never found out if that Dragon got away or not, but it was some time before I could get back on.

So, getting back onto Wizard, I was completely unprepared for the fact that I was dropped, on half health, solo, into a Storm street fight in Khrysalis!  It isn't the first time I have dropped straight into a fight - it really is one of the unintended consequence of helping!

Fortunately, I drew a Colossal, Dragon, Fireblade and Furnace straight into my hand :)  Two rounds later a critical, pumped up Dragon smashed into my opponents and took them both out.

I liked that.

Seeing as I hadn't been here before, I thought I would take a bit of a look around.  It is (currently) the newest area of Wizard101 and I was keen to see whether they had kept up their amazing art and music.  It has always been a standout for me, and you have seen Tabitha's post on her impressions of Zafaria.

Well, it didn't take long before it was clear that they hadn't let us down.  It was simply spectacular.

This is an old world. A world that, if I can believe what I felt in the music, might have a bit of a sad story.  Something terrible seems to have happened here and I am looking forward to finding out just what that is.

Anyway, before leaving, I took a few pics to share, because, as usual, the team at KI have turned on a real show for us!

If you have completed Khrysalis, let me know if the music was telling the truth?  Is it sad?  Surely it cannot be as sad as Dragonspyre?

See you 'round the Spiral!

  1. Khrysalis does look good. Love the attention to detail.

    Have not finished it yet, am just past where you found yourself when the power came back. Congratulations on winning that fight by the way :)
