Guide to Grub Guardian Ep. 9 Hyde Park

Hey everyone! I'm back today with another episode of my guide to grub guardian. In this episode we are entering Marleybone and firstly conquering Hyde Park.

The strategy for this map was rather different but fairly simple and got the job done. We, of course, starting out by placing out Epic fire pet and started the map with a star tower and a myth tower. These guys were able to take out the first wave with ease and after that, I upgraded the myth and bought and ice tower placed just above it to give the other towers more time to hit. Next, I took the ice to snowman and the myth tower to minotaur.

After this, I decided we needed a life tower so I put it in a spot to get the most out of it's range. I then began upgrading everything again, including the star tower and to finish, placed the final ice tower. A couple upgrades later and we were done!

Although this week was fairly short/easy, the maps will begin picking up in difficulty the further we go into Marleybone!

That's all from me folks! I hope you enjoyed and learned something from this episode/post and good luck in your grub guardian endeavours.

Guide to Grub Guardian Ep. 8 The Krokosphinx

Hey everyone! I'm back today with another episode in the guide to grub guardian series! This week we are tackling the final map of Krokotopia, The Krokosphinx. While this means we are near the end of Krokotopia, we are fast approaching Marleybone so I hope you're ready for that!

Anyway, the basic gist of things for this map relied heavily upon luck (to an extent) as we were using death towers which I try to avoid most of the time. However, even if you aren't that lucky, it's still almost a guaranteed victory, you might just need to try again for the gold, however, I was able to get it myself.

Basically, we start off with our pet as always and I placed him a bit to the left of the big gap so that we can fit in our other towers. Next up was a few death towers for the early rounds although the pet should probably be able to take them down, it's better safe then sorry. After this, I placed a few ice towers to keep them in range of the death for as long as possible and finally placed a Life tower (which gets all towers in it's range) to get those death towers shooting even faster.

The rest was consisted of more and more death towers and then levelling everything. I'm happy with this strategy, regardless of the use of death towers and hope you will be too.

Well, that's all from me for today folks! Hopefully you enjoyed and learned something too! And good luck with whatever Grub Guardian maps you're tackling yourself.

Pet Update/Double Pet Experience?

Hey everyone, It's Wizard101's 7th Birthday! This normally means a few special giveaways, competitions, bonuses, etc. So, I jumped onto the Wizard101 website this morning and I was personally stunned by what I saw...

This.. This is absolutely amazing. This is crazy. If this means what I think it means...

Oh yea! This is insane! I can get my tempest pet to ancient in just 5 games! I decided to go ahead and do that because it just seems too easy not to.

Any Members, If you haven't spent all of your energy on a bunch of free seeds from ancient pets then I really would recommend going to the Pet Pavilion and getting the best out of your snacks. If you aren't a member, I'm sorry but this is just too good not to write something on. Members, please take advantage of your time with these benefits as it is going away September 8th. Anyway, here are the talents...

Not to mention I also unlocked a new socket! :D
I kept training and before long (seriously, it's incredibly fast), got my Epic talents

Well, I'll let you go back to your partying in the spiral. Enjoy your items and have fun this September!

Until next time!
