GrandMaster Gardener

A funny thing happend this week.  I saw something flying around a young Elephant Ears.  It looked like a pink wisp.  I thought: How cool!

Level 2 pest in front of the tree above my head
 I was wrong.  It was a Ghoulish Wisp, a level 2 pest.  Bummer, I thought it looked friendly...  I had to run to the nearest mole to learn a new spell to get rid of it.

Oh yeah, I also made it to GrandMaster Gardener. Woot!

 Looks like there is a bug in the badge display...

See you ITS!!

I am back

Yes, I am back.

I don't know how frequently I will continue to post.  But I will whenever I feel like it.  I might also post on Facebook.  Look for my picture under the name Giovanni Francesco (not my real name). Work is keeping me busy and most of my online time, I try to spend it in the spiral.

During the last holidays, Gilroy made it to Legendary and completed Celestia.  Wow, we have been talking about Celestia for a long time and it's already done.

I have taken up gardening.  It's more fun than I thought it would be.  Mostly thanks to the Giving Tree that made me level up very fast.  I am now level 9, Master Gardener.  My favorite plant so far is the King Parsley.  He literally rocks!!  The Orange Dandelion is also very cool with its swirling pixie.
We can see the little pixie just above the Orange Dandelion.

I hope my next post will be won't take too long to come.

See you ITS!!

More Celestia

Made it to the Floating island.  Again, WOW, what a nice place!  Look, my vampire is taking a stroll in this wonderful tropical forest.  Though it's rather strange that a vampire would wander in a tropical forest in day light...

I also found this Treasure Card Recipe seller that has a very interesting recipe.  Elucidate will reduce the pip cost of the target spell card by 2.  Looks like we need to be GrandMaster Artisan to craft it though.  I think that will probably be the first thing I craft as a GrandMaster Artisan.

There are also new potions that will increase Critical spells probability or increase Block probability.  Vengeful Elixir will add 120 to Critical rating for one hour (No PVP) and the Elixir of Fortification will add 120 to Block rating for one hour also (No PVP).  I found them very useful in my fight against Wildcrag.  I have a feeling I will use a lot of those...

BTW, the roaming monsters on the island are quite difficult to handle.  Some are over 1300 health.  Good thing there was friendly wizards around otherwise I would have has a tough time.

See you ITS!!

Celestia is My New Favorite World

Hello everyone!  It's been a long time since my last post.  Nothing much was happening in my Wizard City neighborhood.  But now, Celestia is on the test realm...

My first impression is WOW, at the risk of repeating myself, KI have outdone it once more!  Celestia is now my favorite world.

I did not have time to play as much as I would have liked.  I just finished the Stellarium.  It took me four attempts, but I managed to solo the instance (Thank you Death School).  Loved it, the difficulty level is perfect, winnable but not at every attempt.

Took me a while to understand the "Critical and Block" concept.  I am going to have to search for better gear again.  I will have to sacrifice the high health and boost on Death damage.

Love the new school; I will have experiment more with those on the test realm.

So far I found only a small bug, the death shield are invisible.  Can't wait for Celestia to come on live!!

See you ITS and especially in Celestia!!

Selena and Bejeweled

This week, I have been hypnotized by the Facebook game Bejeweled. It seems I can't stop playing this game.  I played well over 350 this week alone.  The games last only one minute.  After each game, it's like I automatically click on the new game button. :-(

I hope this crazy thing will stop...

I still got to go on the test realm and saved Selena a couple of times from the Crab King.  After my fire wizard Jasmine freed her, Selena held a concert in her backyard theater at her Wizard City home.  And Scooter the mander tried to show us his best moves...

Starlight Pony and Hydra Pet

After a little break from the spiral, I am back in the game.

First of all, I would like to wish a very Happy Birthday to KI.  You have created a great game and I am sure you will celebrate many many more birthdays.

Last weekend at the bookstore, I stumbled on the Sept/Oct issue of Beckett Fun Online Game Magazine (or FOG).  So I brought it home and entered the code for the Starlight Pony and gave it to my fire wizard, Jasmine.  I was a little disappointed that it was only a 7-day rental, but nevertheless I took nice pictures.  The pony has the same color eyes has Jasmine's hair.

My balance wizard, Blaze Darkflame has now reached level 48 and has completed his quest for Power Nova and the Hydra pet.  I took a picture of the balance spirit he summoned, but unfortunately,  the event attracted a small crowd.      

Blaze's next quest is to venture inside the Pyromancer's tomb so he can get enrolled in the Dragonspyre Fire School. Wish him luck!

See you ITS!!

Not much happening

Nothing much is happening.  I played mostly my Storm Wizard, Kyle Darkflame.  He's now level 22.  He just got his Kraken spell.  Did Savarstaad Pass in Grizzleheim and now he's starting the Grand Arena in the Krokosphynx.  Fizzle rate is quite annoying with Storm wizards.  But since he's level 22, fizzle seem to have come down to a more acceptable rate.

Gilroy has found a new place to farm for gold.  He does the first two level of the Warehouse.  Each fight give him about 130 golds.  It's quite fast too.  He brings a small deck with only Scarecrows and blades.  When everything goes well, it takes only two Crows to defeat the bad guys.  The second fight is usually longer, the ice monsters will cast tower shields and the life ones will cast more desth shields.  And then, I like to take a shot at Boss #1.  The best I have done is kill the first two minions and half way to the last one.  I am sure this is soloable.  If only I could use blades.

My Wraith made it to Epic

My Wraith, Lord Midnight made it to Epic.  He's my second pet to get to this level after my Pioneer Dragon, Gizmo.

I am a little disappointed by his pedigree.  Pip Boost is cool and is standard with all level 48 pets.  But I am not sure that Efficient, Well Trained and Astute will be very useful.  Except for racing, what will more intellect, will and agility do in a fight??

I am going to take a small brake from pet training.  My next pet to be trained will probably be Lord Maximus, a Minotaur.  Luckily, it already has a spell casting talent.

See you all ITS!!!

Celestia Shark Pet Revealed

Today, in a letter to inform us on her new role at KI, Dalia Falmea disclosed the picture of a new Shark pet.

When I first saw it, I thought it was a mount because of the saddle.  I wonder if there will be a mount version?  Although it could be weird to run around Mooshu on the back of a shark...

Woohoo!!  Can't wait for Celestia!!  Thank you Prof. Falmea and good luck in your new post at KI!

See you all ITS!
