Wizard101 Khrysalis Guide
The Shadow World is Here!
Wizard101 released the new world of Khrysalis: Part 1 to their live servers on November 15, 2013. You can check out their official update notes right here. Khrysalis is the home of Morganthe’s Shadow Castle, and should climax the Morganthe Storyline that started in Celestia.
KR part one has introduced a new form of magic (Shadow Magic), a new top level cap of 95, a top gold cap of 375,000 for level 90+ players, a new PvE mechanic (Assistants), new gardening levels, and more! Check out our guides below to see everything you need to know about Khrysalis Pt 1!
Shadow Magic Guide
We have compiled everything a wizard should know about getting and using shadow magic into a single guide, right here:
The Forbidden Magic!
Shadow Magic enhances the spells you cast while the Shadow Magic spell is in effect. It is unstable and difficult to control. Players will need to learn how to best manage Shadow Magic and learn how to harness its very powerful benefits.

Spells and Training Points
Each school gets a new spell at the beginning of Khrysalis. This is a first for W101 in that they are all the same spell, just different variations on damage and effect for each school. You can check out the guide here:
Zeke is back in KR, and has lost another load of critters for you to find.
Eloise is also offering a Khrysalis training point quest, if you can find all of her Khrysanthemums. This is very handy if you’d like to train all of the Shadow Spells available!
This is another brand new mechanic to Wizard101 players. There are NPC’s in Khrysalis that will begin following you around once you pick up their quest, and helping you in battle! Not only does this help your wizard quest, but it adds a new depth to the storyline. Check out our guide to find out what the new W101 Assistants can do for you!
KR can be a very enjoyable world to quest in, however the folks at KingsIsle do ratchet up the difficulty of boss fights in many places by adding extreme cheats. We are covering the most troublesome bosses to help you on your journey!
more coming soon!
The dropped gear from KR has some rather.. interesting looks. If you’ve ever wanted to look like a bug or have antlers, this is the gear for you!
Stat-wise, we haven’t found anything incredibly impressive, but that is probably because we’ve all been jaded by the Hades Gear on our top level wizards. It is interesting to note that KR has introduced wands with small amounts of damage boost. Check out our guide here:
Wizard101 recently released level 95+ crowns gear with a KR theme, and this gear DOES provide some interesting stat advancements.
This gear seems to be aimed directly at the “Glass Cannon” wizard builds, since the school-specific outfits (except Ice) don’t offer any resist, but do have huge doses of damage, critical, and armor piercing. There’s also a universal outfit which brings in armor piercing with a slightly more defensive stat set.
The ultimate PvP pet? Maybe.
The ultimate in cuteness? Definitely!
Ultimate Fire pet? You decide.
The ultimate in buffness. Hands down.
Rank 15 Gardening
At the end of the Fort Rachias quest line, your wizard (if they are leveled up in gardening) will have access to a quest which opens a new gardening vendor. This vendor, Barley, has rank 15 gardening spells with effects that last for days. Check out our guide here:
