Goodbye and hello

I am saying goodbye to everyone on Grandmaster Files.
I have been infested in spambots- and I have to turn comments off...
I am not leaving the blogger world though :)

My friend Benjamin Fariedust over at the Spirit Keep offered me a job as his apprentice (haha Magyke flashback- for all of you who know what that is)

So Ill be working over there with him- I hope to see you all there soon :)

Spambots be gone!

Attention Mischief Makers of the Spiral!

I found a little bug in the game you might want try out.

Its quite simple, and just fun to do repetitivly.

1) Go to Kiwu the boss mander in the Temple O' Storms

2)Beat him

3) Go to the table behind him (the food)

4) Interact (x)

5) Enjoy giving him sleep potion, every single fight!

X marks the spot

Tips for marking places.

1)Never mark an instance IF you plan on returning the next or + days
You'll soon notice, that oh look its the next day. Oops, it looks like the instance/mark has expired and wont let me return

2)Mark popular places you wish to return to often
If you plan on farming in a certain area, this is very helpful. Just make sure its not an instance. Or if you want to mark the pet pavillion- because you dont want to go ALL the way back from Ravenwood, :p.

3)Oh no! My mana is almost gone, but I want to farm some more!
That little voice might say, keep farming! Dont listen to it, instead of running out of mana and having to return to this place by getting back by walking. Use that mana on marking it so you can return after its been marked.

Celestial Idea's

Ok, I am hopefully going to post a new series of posts called "celestial ideas".
You can leave a comment, with your idea for something in Celestia- or email grandmasterfiles@gmail.com .
~

Now, to get into the ideas.

~

Idea of the day

Submitted by: N/A
I think maybe there could be a underwater emote- like a swim emote? In celestia, you could swim around? It would be awesome if you could swim around in the water, with some sort of bubble around your head.
Maybe the NPC's could be some fish who are paddeling through the water as well. Though, in one concentrated area?

Good ideas, mr.n/a, lol.
~

Now to unrap this idea.

Firstly:
I think maybe there could be a underwater emote- like a swim emote? In celestia, you could swim around? It would be awesome if you could swim around in the water,

This would be plain- awesome. I love this idea... its like you're wizard is at a angle with her/his arms doing some kind of circling motion and moving swiftly across the water, thats some nice concept.
Though, the only thing I am worried about is realisticness. No, I dont mean breathing in a bubble is unrealistic when it comes to wizard101.

I am saying, that like every had the idea that you could fly high into the sky with a mount. Same problem here, you'd have to have more level of pixles. Though, if anyone can remember back to the old ToonTown days.
This was no problem. (Sadly I couldnt find a video for y'all xD, so thats coming up soon)

Next Part-
with some sort of bubble around your head.

I love this part as well, imagine your head stuffed inside a bubble, maybe you could customize this bubble? Maybe, they will have a choice of speed as your bubble becomes more powerful? You know, I am just throwing out more crazy idea's for the KI team xD.

Last part-
Maybe the NPC's could be some fish who are paddeling through the water as well. Though, in one concentrated area?

Yes, this seams actually reasonable. Everyone knows a NPC has a small motion-
Just look at the way Merle moves his hand, and how gamma's cap flips a little sideways.


Enjoy! Remember, either email me. Or reply in the comments!

(Also, G-rated stuff please ;) and keep the content in english)

Gold, gold and more gold!

Ok, today we will be going around the spiral to find the richest monsters, bosses and NPC's, (non-player-characters).


The ones that you can defeat and come out with 20,000 gold. Or maybe, they are rich in another away?







Well, this little guy sure is rich, the gold way. (I was helping a little Level 5 today) and I made sure to say a few things I want to call "oldtaunts". Since I had to use Menu Chat with them because they didnt have Text Chat. I really wanted to go back to the old Taunt section and bring out a few "special delivery!" s.




If you look back to the picture above he kind of game away some of his gold in mercy. Actually, we became pretty good friends- he and I started to do the wizard dance if you've noticed. (I also made him that crown :) )



Next up we have WormGuts, nice name huh? *shivers*

It brings back the good old days, the todays. I just recently (right now) made a guide on how to defeat wormguts.






You're probally asking yourself right now. "How does Wormguts have to do with gold and richness?"




Well, thing is. He doesnt, I wanted to show you the opposite of gold and riches. He is probally the most poor monster in the game...



Ok now, we are going to take a small trip to Krockotopia- where the Manders live :)

Ill be challenging the Nebit Ninri- or should I say. The Bling Bling Ninri look at those golden wrings!










Just to finish this post up, I want you to see. A teacher? A teacher? The krockitillian teacher, the balance teacher. The... the, Alkharzred!


Is he rich? Lets see!

The Celestial Unicorns!

Charlies origians are stuck in a meadow, with his "friends" the sun and moon unicorns, (thats what I am calling them for now).

He moved to the Spiral to escape them, and it seams... they followed him.
He just defeated Lady Blackhope when a faded image of two unicorns wearing beards appeared before him. He screamed and ran out the door, when he went to consult Merle, he was gone for lunch.

He went to his teacher Dyworgyn for help, Charlie copyed it down word by word.

"thy this be your greatest challenge Charles. These ones are the hardest, evilist, most annoying in the world. They will be sneaky charlie, gotta be sneaky Charlie. They will try to confuse your brain into thinking your the bananah king, they will hunt you down to Candy mountain! They will summon the door to steal your ssssssssssooooooolleeee." After that, Charlie ran out the door never to take his advice again.

Stay tuned, and I need your advice. Leave it in the comments:
-A video of what happens
-A series of screenshots of what happens
-or just a story

Whos Charlie?

Ok, so as you might of sean from previous posts (look down) Charlie is my new friend. He actually came from the idea Friendly's post gave me. When friendly posted about his new character "flint stone".

I went on to youtube and searched for... if you havent seen it. Charlie the Unicorn- which became Charles Unicorn, level 5 necromancer.



Charlie escaped them when he came to the Spiral, but sometimes he seams to hear their presence... He tells me it sounds something like "Charlie..... We'll see you in CELESTIA, mwahahaha."

The weird thing is, Charlies buddies are the colors just of that. Blue and Pink, or Sky and Sun? Maybe Charlie should be worried, you never know.

Want to find out about Charlies greatest challenge, stay tuned!

Charlie The Unicorn VS his minions!

Ok, time to rattle-it-up.


Charlie, my new character. Just battled it up with his minions, he accidentally summoned them yesterday...


Thing is, skeletons don't like being kicked out of the fun. So, they tried to pursue Charlie into making them stay. Lets just say, no luck.




Charlie growled furiously at his minion, and engaged in a fight. Rattlebones- being a evil cheater. Summoned his own minion, and Charlie called him "all teeth, no brain" thus became this.




He won of coarse, and he managed to take a little piece of his minion with him. Rattlebone's prized hat, though Charlie forgets what its called.

Pet update series (part 1) Pet Derby

Hey everyone, now that the new pet update is out in the test realm. I will be doing a series of videos to show you whats to learn about it.

Since, it has its falters and good points. Why not identify them?
Here is part 1, or the pet derby:

Though, while the video loads- you can take a moment and comment about what you think of the pet derby. Really- what is your opinion?
Great, 59% loaded..

64%
68%
Well, just to tell everyone. Make sure to have a teen+ pet equipped to enter the pet derby. Unlike the hatchery where it scans for an adult+ pet.
100%!

Now to head to YouTube---
12%... yea, I don't come very prepared when it comes to videos.
While we (I) wait. I recommend going on the Test Realm itself. Who knows when it will close and head to the live realm? Where you don't have unlimited crowns!


Its time... for part 1!

Thursday, April 29, 2010

An amazing pet update or... a incredible waste of crowns?

Well, as everyone knows. The new pet update is very, very fun.
Though, one thing that bugs me is that you must pay CROWNS, to refill your pet mana. (power) I mean really?

Pay 200 or so crowns to play minigames- after a while that piles up.
Second, with having to pay crowns for "cool new pets in the crowns shop" is not cool.
I mean, everyone wants a freddy nine lives. Though, its not easy to whip up 1,000 cronws+petmana.

Then, lets head over to the hatching.
To hatch an ancient costs- tons of gold. Mine came up to 80,000. The normal player doesnt have that much gold.

So where do they go? The crowns store, buy them up a bunch crowns. And Pay, pay, pay.

I LOVE KI's ideas and they are a great team. Though, I feel that more things should be free. Not crowns based.
Do you agree?

Wizard101's Yellow Brick Road!

As we all know, the classic tale of Dorthy.
While she adventures with her friends, and her dog Toto. To save Oz, and defeat the wicked witch!











Now lets take a little walk with my new character Charlie Unicorn. (I will post about him later on) down the yellow brick road.


Lalalalalalala, down the yellow brick road!





It looks like Dorthy has a quest for us, haha jolly good. Aww, sometimes we miss Auntie Em as well. Like our little protector, from chickens and geese. The one who will shoo away the hens when you've got the chicken pox. The one... well I could go on all day about our Auntie Em's though lets get on with the story.



In the Wizard101 Wizard Of Oz, Dorthy is worried about her new home in the spiral. She thinks the ghosts might of gotten her best friends, Mr.Toto (a dog) and the Tin Man (clockwork)


Well, now that or story is over. We may as well sing,

"Follow, follow, follow, follow the yellow brick road!"

Wizard101 Mini-Game Showdown

This is gonna be tons of fun...
___

So, today I am going to show a little Ravenwood Spirit and showdown the mini-games. As you know, their are tons. From Dueling Diego, to... the old Choo-Choo Zoo.

As for my favorite its got to be Skull Riders, its a bit laggy, but? Who cares! I whipped myself up to level 7 I believe and then a skeleton hit me at the last second. Aww, as goofy says...

SHUCKS!



Now were gonna head over to the stables and get our YEEHAW on, lol. Lets kick on over to dueling diego.

Ok, I found one thing out, I am really bad at dueling diego.

/gobbler hits me in the stomach.

Ouch! Hey, c'mon I am not that bad. So, how often do you get to play the mini-game Shock-A-Lock? Not very often. I find it quite easy, but thats because I somehow get it a lot. Ok, since I cant find that game anywhere today. I am going to show you a new mini-game you can play with your friends.

1) You need a simple dorm room

2)You need some random furniture

3) spread it apart

4)Make one object the "victim"

5) One object the "Puzzler" (MUST BE THE DORM OWNER)

6)1 wizard will stand inside the "puzzler"

7) 1 or 2 other wizards will go in the other objects.

8)Finally you choose your victim and they stand in the "victim" object

9) The victim closes their eyes, and opens them. The victim is unaware who is the Puzzler.

10) Each turn, the Puzzler must stay in the same object or object's, only switching location to trick the victim.

NOW GO PLAY :-D

Wizard101 Global Warming

To help me today is my twin, Allison Dragonshard. Sister to Allison DragonCoin :), /lol.

We will be exploring the skies of Wizard101 around the spiral, because if anyone has noticed.

I find them slightly poluted... *spooky music*
Is there a reason for this!

/cough /cough

marleybone factories stink

/cough /cough






Ok, so as we all know, polution comes from factories, Smoke, green gas, (I call it that). With all this new, pet creation buissness. Isnt that morn Kitty Cat Factories? We dont want to see more meowiarity run polution stations. (have you seen the gas coming from them!?!?!)

Well, today Allison is going to take off her awesome fancy gear, and get to work in her shreds for global warming.

(Badly cut I know, I usually do much better work, though I was rushing)
/puts back on awesome robes

Much better, I guess trees in wizard101 grow faster then ones in real life, (thats the part when you, lol)

Well hug a tree, and the race for the spirals existance rages on! Make sure to pet your little treants today, and take um' for a spin.

Happy Easter!

Zoom-in in on the Robes

Today I am gonna let my brain wiz a little.

I recently (maybe a year or so, but I was being a hothead and not posting) discovered, about the symbols of clothing in Wizard101.






Today we are going to follow a much younger wizard on a journey of symbols.(you might see her in the background or you know her if you read this)

Oh! Found her, oh nauty DragonCoin. Going through Malistares old stuff to find death symbols...



Though I think she found something more interesting...

Lets lookie over back to the Commons, where Allison managed to discover that Ms.Death-Tuff-Myth girl is a prospector Zeke fan, aww symbols lead you everywhere.

Wow, that was a lot of pictures Allison. Lets retrace our steps a bit and think, there is symbols of schools everywhere. Though, when are you so fortunate to find Celestial wardrobe. Well, let me tell you a secret. (I JUST DISCOVERED ALLISON IS)

Let me take one last pic for everyone,

That sure some sun, moon, and stars right there.

Anyway, cya on later.

And make sure to comments :)

The many pets of allison dragonshard +video

Since uploading a video onto here takes a about an hour and a half, /virtual laugh. I guess i'll just have to wait it off.

To wait it out I'll do a little miner segment along with it.
~~~
I have an assignment due anyway... yikes
Pets around the spiral
Open Responce
Well as timid as pets around wizard city might be. You never really know what their feeling-
As cute as the little piggle
As fast and curious as a booming danger hound.
I recently started keeping track of different animals around the few spiral worlds. I tracked the: piggle, mander, ninja pig, and I found one most interesting one creeping around. I was around when I saw one of the Ravenwood news reporters standing for a photo shoot with a few pets and I got a little inspiration.
I found a little crabby fellow roaming around the spiral door. I dicided out of curiosity to follow the little guy. As he emerged through the spiral door I jumped back and found him now carrying a banner, celestia, it was labeled.
I found the piggle chewing up a few rotten candy apples from Halloween and then- I crept around the corner to find the ninja pig gettting chased by a few shop owners... who seamed to have lost a few windows.
As my research has shown, a cute little chubby piggle.
A pesky ninja pig.
A curious little crab.
A+ on me. /hehe

A Wizard101 2010

I think I will be heading in a different deriction with this one post...

I recentely *2 minutes ago* thought of a good idea. I would get a wizard101 calendar from the zazzle store.
Which as you know has a different wizard101 pic. on every month.

Each picture will show what I am going to do on wizard101 that month. If it shows malistare, ill defeat malistare again. If it shows ninja pigs, hay theres alot you can do with ninja pigs. I'll get a ninja pig pet- or farm for the ninja pig statue-

Happy Wizard101 2010!

Flowers for my neighbors. And wizard101 funeral.

Tragic things happened on my street the other day, sadly. One of our close neighbors died, she was looking around 90- sad that was. I was thinking of hosting a little funeral in her honor. So tomorrow I am heading down to nightshade. In prebought bazaar Marybone clothes. (Best for looking serious)
Its kind of a tuff situation to hold in a MMO. So, this is going to be a tuff situation. Well- I hope I can keep you posted on how it turnes out.

Skeleton Pirate!

Being fire its kind of weird, though. I was at the bazaar. ( I collect )
I found Clankers Chocker Of Bones! The amazing amulet gives a 1 card skeleton pirate, for level 25's and up. I havent tried it out yet, though it jogged my memory when I was side-questing in Mooshu.
