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

Springtime in The Spiral

I have been enjoying a really wonderful time out there in ‘The Spiral’ as it’s called, running all around to help that very nice Headmaster Ambrose. I feel bad that his school – and Wizard City in general – are pretty crazy right now, what with all the monsters roaming around the streets and taking over those big towers! I hope that Malistaire really gets what’s coming to him!

So far I’m learning a lot about fire magic from Dalia Falmea, my teacher – she’s really cool, or, um, hot, as the case may be… My life school teacher is a cow – no seriously, she’s an actual cow, Moolinda Wu, and so far she hasn’t shown me much. I don’t think she trusts pyromancers very much. At least I’m not death school – you should HEAR what she says about them. Made all my fur stand on end, let me tell you! Let’s just say that behind closed doors that bovine has some strong opinions…

I did watch a PVP match as a spectator, watching a higher level pyromnacer laying the smack down on what I believe was a balance student. I was a little concerned at first, but then what I assume had to be the ‘helephant’ came out and that’s all she wrote. Massive damage, smoldering crater, the whole thing. I can’t wait to see what I get next – Sunbird is a nice spell and I’ve taken out more than a few baddies with it, but I want to learn the BIG stuff… I must be patient though – don’t want to singe my fur!

Soon I’m going to start decorating my dorm room and saving up for a house. I’ve seen the school houses and I’m not sure which I want yet… While I like the Fire School house and I know I should show some ‘school spirit’, I’m really impressed by the Storm School house! It will be a while before I have the gold for that, I’m sure, so I’ve got plenty of time to make up my mind!

Finally, once I’m through with all the quests in Wizard City, which will probably still take a while as I’m a monster who likes to be thorough and finish everything in one area before moving to the next, I’m really looking forward to the next world I’ll get to visit, and I still can’t wait to get back to Grizzleheim and talk to hose nice bears again!

  1. I can’t wait for you to get your first AoE spell: Meteor Storm! You’re going to have a blast with that. And by “blast,” I mean blasting the heck out of every monster in the dueling circle. It’s truly a fun spell!

    Keep being awesome, Ditto!
