KingsIsle has outdone themselves – Winter Wind Tower, with pictures!
Sometimes a game does something that’s just so over the top awesome, it’s hard to take it all in. Today, Wizard 101 launched some new bundle cards, the Pagoda Tower bundle and Majestic bundle cards, and I was fortunate enough to get my furry hands on a Majestic Bundle. I have to say, this bundle is one of the best I’ve ever seen – I am in love with every piece of it!
The centerpiece is, of course, Winter Wind Tower, a MASSIVE house that includes a castle, a separate PVP dueling island, a magic mirror, tower library, and lots and lots of land. The architecture and detail are beautiful and really flow, and I love the separate PVP ‘island’ – it’s a nice touch.
Along with the castle, there is a dragon mount. Yes, a big, green, awesome looking dragon mount – he’s so cool. I’m usually not a fan of the big wingspan mounts, because they take up a lot of screen real estate, but the dragon just looks impressive! He’s a handsome fellow, to be sure!
Of course with the inclusion of the special ‘Strange Beast’ pet, I’m not sure the mount matters, because KingsIsle has created the CUTEST PET EVER!!! The ‘strange beast’ is basically an adorable squirrel with dragon wings and the cutest animations I’ve ever seen… I love him and want to cuddle with him forever and feed him pie!!
There’s nice armor, the True Silver armor, and the ‘Silver Lance of Daybreak’, a beautiful and pretty powerful lance, both with nice stats and cards attached – they looks really good, too, and fit very well with the ‘Avalon’ theme.
There is also a new interactive tapestry to Caliburn in Avalon, which is nice, because it will be a WHILE before I get to see Avalon doing the normal questing route. I haven’t really explored yet, but I’m excited to try!
So overall, this is a VERY impressive bundle card, and may be my favorite house so far. It’s bug, beautiful, and I’m sure it has all kinds of secret nooks and crannies I still need to explore. Of course there’s the ‘decorating’ part, too… that will take a while, but I’m up for the challenge! Maybe I’ll ask Paige Moonshade for some help 🙂
