Spring Update Notes 2017 – Wizard101

Spring Update Notes 2017 – Wizard101

This Spring Update will bring huge changes, brace yourselves people! The original notes can be found here.



Now you can capture the “Animus” of monsters through the magic of Monstrology. Wizards level 12 and above should visit Monstrologist Burke across from the Myth School in Ravenwood to take on the quest, “Know Thine Enemy” for an introduction to the new Monstrology system in Wizard101. 

You’ll begin with a quick training session to using the Extract Animus spells which apply to damage cards in combat much like other enchantments (In other words, you apply an Extract Animus spell to your cards much like you would the Colossal spell). Use these enchanted cards during combat to extract Animus. Use Animus to then create Summon Monster Treasure Cards, create House Guests for your Castle, or create powerful Expel Monster Treasure Cards for non-boss enemies.
Press T” in game to open your Monstrology Tome to create and track these new items.

You’ll also now be earning ranks in Monstrology and earning badges for your accomplishments while you play with this new system. 

Special Notes:

  • During PvE combat, non-Myth school wizards can summon one monster through a created treasure card, but Myth players can summon up to three!
  • If the monster is one you can only ever fight once through a quest, you won’t be able to collect animus from it.
  • New Dance Emotes were added (thanks Evan)



Along with the new Monstrology system also comes the Monstrodome! 

The Monstrodome is an interact-able item you either purchase through the Crown Shop or craft (See Felicia Worthington in Marleybone to purchase the recipe). You can add your minion summoning treasure cards into the Monstrodome and invite friends to come duel your devious collection of monsters from within your player housing. 

You interact with the Monstrodome much like you would other housing items. You click on the Place Object housing button, place your Monstrodome in your house, Click on your Monstrodome, and then click on the Monstrodome icon.



Skeleton Key Bosses

It’s time to face off against three all new Skeleton Key Bosses in Wizard101.

Find Sapoti in the Hall of Doors in Krokotopia (Wooden Skeleton Key Boss).

Find Captain Hockins in Zafaria’s Waterfront (Stone Skeleton Key Boss).

Find Mirage’s Verboten Mimic in Aggrobah near the river area (Gold Skeleton Key Boss).



New Level 118 School Pets

The Arcanum Scholars now have a new quest available to those who are level 118. They will summon you to talk to them in the Arcanum and will send you on a quest to earn a new school pet.


Aquila Fishing

New fish (and treasure chests) can now be found along the coast of Aquila. Fish up some great rewards and some new friends (like the Spartan Spear) for your fish tanks at home!


Crown Shop

Introducing the Jewel vault! The Jewel Vault works similarly to the seed vault, but for jewels. You place your vault in your player housing, click on it, and open your jewel vault. From here you can transfer your extra jewels into your vault. Note that a crafting recipe for the Jewel Vault is also available from Toshio.

Other Crown Shop changes are as follows:

  • For those who want to shortcut the time it takes to gather Animus, we have a brand new Animus Elixir that triples the animus collected.
  • The Ghulture’s Hoard pack now gives a level-appropriate socket wrench when one is obtained from a pack.
  • Level 115 jewels were added to the Crown Shop Jewel Packs.
  • The Marleybone Car mount is now able to be dyed.






  • Qyburn Stellargaze has a new upgraded Frenzy spell available for wizards who already own the Berserk spell.
  • Ignus Ferric now offers Link as a trainable spell.
  • Baba Yaga now offers Gobbler as a trainable spell.
  • Jacki Whisperwind now offers Precision as a trainable spell.




  • The No Trade restriction on most rare equipment from Wizard City to Dragonspyre has now been removed. This includes lower level one-shot dungeon and ultra-dungeon equipment.
  • Decks with stats will now display those stats before they display level, trade, auction, and PvP-use information.
  • Staff of the Krampus is no longer listed as No Trade.
  • Several common drops from Mirage are now able to be auctioned in the bazaar.
  • Modified the jewels that can be obtained from common enemies in Mirage.
  • Eloise in the Caravan now offers different options for gear stitching.
  • Added Level 108 “Kataba” and “Walrusk” items to various bosses in Polaris.
  • Attempted to further clarify rounding errors with Accuracy/Precision statistics.



  • Jordo Mistborn is now located closer to his brother Brandon Mistborn.
  • Housing PvP sigils no longer allow players to join games that are in progress.
  • Fixed the incorrect amount of pierce that was being added to Quick Match Tournaments.
  • The amount of damage a critical hit can do in PVP has been increased from +25% to +30%.



  • Added new Castle Magic items and spells, including some new camera control spells! Be sure to drop by Babbage Basset to check out his new inventory.
  • A glow has been added to the Gardening Button when you have plants (that aren’t elder) ready to harvest.
  • The Faction and Arcanum apartments can now be sold.
  • Enlarging an item with castle magic will also enlarge their range if they are an interact-able housing item.
  • Increased the reliability of Castle Magic Start Detectors.
  • Using a Magic Random Reflector with a Magic timer will now provide more randomized results.

    For some reason KI forgot to mention the new Dance emotes. There are three new ones, and they’re all awesome. Just an FWI

    • Alex Thunderstaff

      Thanks, I’ll add that in!

  • FuffyRuff

    Idk if i’m going to like the boost of critical damage.. Why? CAUSE BLOCK DOESN’T EXIST (at-least for most of us at max lvl) unless your ice or jade… :/

  • shadowlightning101

    Not liking the balance pet cards at all they need to get a 40 blade since it is something stuck to the pet and i sure hope we get something with hybrids if we get them. Animus is ok just would love to see ki give balance a little more love that’s all.

  • Grace

    Will you show us the new level 115 school themed jewels? I would like to see them.

  • Brand Ghostspear

    Yo, to all the balance wizards, look at the new spell look on the sandstorm. That was suddenly changed in the new update.
