Wizard101 Lost Pages Event
Test realm opened with a new ‘Event.’ It begins in the Wizard City Library with Harold Argleston. This is not a short event. It contains many quests. I started off deleting cards from my decks, and ended up adding them all back. Other worlds include: Krokotopia, MooShu, Celestia, Avalon and Azteca.
What happened to the pages?
Lost of course, it is a cursed tome after all. It was locked away until now. Boris misfiled it in the open stacks by mistake.
The Carpe Diem Society unleashed the pages, now there is a crisis that might become an epidemic.
Recover the six lost pages by defeating Spellwrits. Hand them off to Harold Argleston QUICK! Don’t let the infection spread!
Hypnotherapist for Starry Eyes
Beyond Dee’s Mirrors you reach sigils to the the hypnotized student’s hideouts. First you will defeat a room of Spellwrits, then onto the student. Once the student is defeated, they are released from the spell and no longer googley eyed. The dungeons take much less time than defeating the 10 Spellwrits in each of the six worlds.

Discover the Lost Page of Embers. Pacal Redmask returns you to Harold Argleston one last time with the page for the Vaulted Archives. Considering how many pages you returned to him and the trouble it took to get them, one would think there would be a prize involved. There is not. (Even the IRS gives you volunteer miles, sheesh.) Pat yourself on the back.
Mr. Wethersfield directs you to Bentley Daysong, the leader of the Carpe Diem Society and natural-born Pyromancer. He is consumed more than any of them and requires salvation. ‘Fire Fly’ leads you to Dee’s Mirror to shatter the curse on Daysong. Enter Mysterious Tower beyond Dee’s Mirror in Twin Giants.

Mega Snacks and Other Goodies
So far, the gear, plants and treasure cards received are equivalent to the other bosses at their ranks. For example, no auction gear for level 88 in the Azteca Dungeon, level 78 in Avalon Dungeon. I have seen Dragonhorned Melons, level 8 Mega Snacks. I received them from the Azteca mob and the dungeon. I did notice a shatter with the Avalon boss. They are nice to use against Azteca bosses who like to shield. I received several Regal Dragon Statues. Most of the housing seemed pretty true to the worlds.
The levels are repeatable after completion. I did the last dungeon a few times in hopes of rare drops. None found so far. I am a bit curious as to where this quest will lead us. A tower full of awesome 90 gear perhaps? (A girl can dream, ya know?!)
The toughest part of this event was the time it took to complete. The Spelwrits appear 2 to a mob section. I felt lucky to get two in a battle. Therefore, in order to defeat 10 Spellwrits, you end up doing 5-10 battles. In Wizard City and Krok it didn’t seem to bother me, but in Avalon and Azteca, it seemed to drag.
With the lack of enemies, I have concerns that when this goes live, it will become increasingly difficult to complete a quest for Spellwrits. The first things that come to my mind are instances such as Celestia and Zafaria. We had a terrible time getting a place to battle Lion Ravagers and when Celestia opened, the entire first two areas were clogged for months. Hopping realms doesn’t always work when they are all busy. I hope KI has a plan to combat this issue.
I have over six hours of footage. I will add the videos as soon as editing is complete. Until then…
