Theorycrafting: Wintertusk

Fifteen million people have played Wizard101. How do you go about retaining them?(From Massively)

(From KI)
We announced 15 million back in January, but we had an even bigger month in February, which is typically a down month in the wintertime. So the growth continues to be outstanding.
We have a new world launching called Wintertusk. It's the completion of Grizzleheim, and it's for players level 50 and above. It really continues on that story arc, so players will get the background of Mother Raven's storyline, and it will bring her to the forefront of the game. We have new level 58 pets coming out, but we also have to balance it with what we do for new players. One of the things we did was redesign the underwater zone used in the Selena Quest for lower-level characters. We continue the story, not with Selena, but with the Crab King. When he met Selena, he uncovered the concept of the rock and roll world. I don't want to spoil anything, but look for a rock lobster in the game.


Wintertusk will complete the epic storyline that began with Grizzleheim and will offer new things to do, and areas to explore for all levels of young Wizards. 

Walks away slowly, looking back every so often.
I just love contradictions, there so much fun :)

Okay so there are two statements that tell two different things,
Statement one; This will be open to players 50+
Statement two; This will be open to players 10-60+
Statement two (a redux); This will be open to 50+, but will be previewed by some way or another.

So what do you think it is? What is in your hopes and dreams? why am I asking you these questions? Who Am I? Look a dinosaur? Phi? 

Look for a poll on that side of the page --->

Tenure for Dworgyn!


  1. i believe there will be a bunck of quests, 'transparent' to the young wizards, that seamlessly tie everything together, meaning we more 'experienced' wizards will backtrack those new 'old'quests, to advance our 50+ questlines.

  2. hmm, that may well be the case, adding I bit more of grandmother raven into the story.

  3. I think there will be stuff for every level.

  4. Well if Wintertusk is made soon i hope they put some sort of level cap you need to enter it so they wouldnt have to lower experience because of low-level players ( as in what happened in Grizzleheim ) plus i hope all the legendaries out there get some sort of really cool useful spell have a nice day wizards.

    I assume Wintertusk will not only continue and possibly end the Grizzleheim storyline but will also cross with the main storyline as well. Morganthe's prohecy states the mirror will break, the horn will call ( look at what grandmother raven is holding ), i strike from the shadows, and the skies will fall. Meaning that the mirror and and horn are used to summon some beast or gain power and she will attack the spiral by attack and creating mass destruction with her shadow weavers. Wintertusk will most likely be the first world we will have to deal with because of Morganthe( not counting Celestia which is like the wizard city ) so can't wait for the other worlds to come out faster and better KI we all love your great games :]

  6. I can't wait to see the new lvl. 58 pets. I hope fire gets a Fire Dragon or Efreet pet.
    Look me up, Chase Ironblood, 60, fire. currently finishing cl
    Chase Ironblade, 30, death. currently beginning hametsu village in ms.
    That feels so weird, my legend was in mooshu till like lvl 52 or 53 my death started mooshu at 29.
    Yes, yes, I did the Chancel dungeon in cl many, many different times. It just kept giving like 30k xp :)
