Ditto the Monster looks at the world of family friendly online games from a Fabricated American perspective


Hast Thou Slain The Jabberwock? Wizard101 Boss Fight!

In Avalon there is a quest series, based on the Lewis Carol poem ‘Jabberwocky‘, and the highlight of this quest series is a boss fight with the dreaded Jabberwock himself – a cheating, 25,000 health, fire school boss monster.  It’s a crazy fight, to be sure, and I tried it four times in varying ways before I finally got some proper help.  Today, Christina LionRider and Hunter BlueRider joined me and together, after a VERY long time, we took out the mighty beast!

Weekend Wizard101 quest fun – Clearing the Cobwebs!

So in celebration of Wizard101’s Sixth birthday, I have been playing a lot more recently, and as I was looking for quests to do on Friday I realized that I had between four and five pages of ‘old’ quests like the Stone Roses in Dragonspyre, Zafarian history books quest, and even the Marleybone ‘Spiral Key’ tower (I didn’t have to do that one to get into Celestia) that I hadn’t yet finished.  It became my mission to clear every single non-Avalon quest out there, and I got really close! I think all I have left is one Trogg in Wintertusk and one fish (Bearracuda) in Grizzleheim, and that’s it – the rest are all Avalon!

It was actually a lot of fun going back to do the older quests – some of them were still pretty challenging, and it was nice to revisit some of the old haunts….  Celestia was especially nice – I still think the design there is really beautiful, and I love the story and the overall quest layout.  It was fun going toe to toe with Stellar Defenders and evil fish people again!

So that’s it – a fun little diversion before the big push to finish Avalon, a nice time during the rainier parts of the holiday weekend.
