Items disappearing from housing walls

Few days ago a new feature was added to Wizard101 – housing system known as Castles & Lands. This game is based on magic, but items disappearing from dorm and housing walls is a bug. Wizard101 the game will be offline 08 May 2009 during the regular maintenance period of 3am to 4am Central time. After the update, your items should appear where you placed them.

Lotro buddy key

Does Lotro buddy key have “no chat, trading, or mail” restriction. Does it still have the level 15 cap like the regular trial account? Or is it only limited by time?

The account is only limited by time, and does not have the normal restrictions that a trial account has. That’s because when you give out a referral key, the referrer is responsible for the actions of the referred.

On a side note, there is no level 15 cap for referral accounts or trial accounts.


Wizard101 May patch: Castles & Lands

Wizard101 has announced the new housing feature called Castles & Lands. All players start out with a dorm room that they can immediately decorate. Upgraded housing can be purchased using in-game gold from vendors in each of the worlds. Players must be level 10 to purchase Castles & Lands. And be sure to prepare a lot of gold!

Players can teleport to their own house using the “Go Home” button, or over to a friend’s house via their Friends List. Look for the friendly turtles to start you on your way, but first Simeon in Ravenwood has a quest for players over level 15!

Meet World of Fight

WoF (World of Fight), a new game by The9 Ltd.  is soon to come. New Web site address is very similar to WoW This fact is very interesting because The9 Ltd has lost publishing rights for World of Warcraft in China few weeks ago.

April 16, 2009. The9 Limited (NASDAQ: NCTY) (“The9”), a leading online game operator and developer in China, announced today that  it has learned that Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft will be licensed to another China-based online game company following the expiration of the current license agreement with The9.

We wonder whether The9 is launching a WoW clone or this mysterious website with the similar name should draw players to its new game?
