      Re: Is Wizard101 Worth Playing in 2021?

      Thank you to everyone who responded. After more consideration, I think I would be willing to retry the game . I think if I lay off my expectations of what the game should be like based on how it was in the past, it may be more enjoyable. I will most likely wait to purchase a membership until there is a sale however.

      Special thanks to @Willowdreamer. I realize that there's still much to do in the game now, and though I lack friends in the game, I am sure I will find enjoyment in picking up on where I left off in my characters' progression (heck, my highest level Wizard is still only level 121!).

      Re: Is Wizard101 Worth Playing in 2021?

      @Willowdreamer, I too am one of the ones who still love and play this game. You stated it perfectly.
      I've been playing since 2009 and I play it every day even if it's just to do the Daily assignments or to garden. This game has been my savior when real life has been overwhelming at times. I've enjoyed playing with my oldest son, my daughter, my grandchildren and some of the wonderful players from here on Central.
      Is everything perfect with the game? No, do I wish they had more Crown sales and other things people have asked for yes, of course but no game is perfect and this one in my opinion is better than a lot of them. It's a safe place for kids and families to play together. People who've been away for a while may be pleasantly surprised if they just give it a chance and try it again. You can play solo, or in a group of friends or with people who you meet that become friends.
      I for one hope it continues for many more years.
      The world is full of magic.
      You just have to believe in it.

      I mean lack as in not many. Thank you for holding out on me for so long! When I logged on today, there was no one online on any of my friends lists which was discouraging.

      Re: Is Wizard101 Worth Playing in 2021?

      The main reason (more than any other reason) I play this game is because of friends and the social aspect of playing an MMORPG in general. I can talk to people more easily in game than in real life, I can make new friends more easily in game than in real life, enjoy conversations with people who don't wait hours to respond to any conversation. In real life, I don't have that many active friends that are physically there. I used to but then Covid essentially turned that possibly into rock bottom and everybody I used to talk to has essentially disconnected. In game, I can communicate with people directly even if they're complete strangers. Nobody bothers to talk to me in real life because talking to strangers in reality is extremely rare- borderline improbable since it's not the social norm (at least where I'm at), but in game PEOPLE TALK TO ME even if I never initiated a conversation. That's my personal value in playing the game, everything else is sorta-kinda meh to me in comparison. The direct conversation aspect of this game is significant to me and probably my mental health.

      It's sad but it's true nonetheless. Maybe I need to get better friends in real life but it's different, you know...

      Re: Is Wizard101 Worth Playing in 2021?

      I need to agree with @Sparck.

      Yes.

      This is the only game I recall playing that spikes my adrenalin level and heart rate when I am doing competitive things like PVP. And it still does after 11 years. Can't explain it.

      There have been changes I dislike, and changes I love. If you focus on things you love about the game and somewhat less about the things you dislike, that will draw you back.

      The countless ways Wizzy can dress themselves today is worth the admission ticket. (OMG!)
      The entertainment cost is a GREAT deal. Buy membership when it's on sale, and it's only $5.00 a month.

      I see you working saying that's too much dinero.
      How many of you spend $8.00 a day at McDonalds to choke down an artery clogging cheese burger? Skip lunch for one day a month and you have all the benefits of being a member. Great opportunity to mix in a salad too.

      Don't rush through the game with 5 accounts with Max Wizards on each account.
      For me, there is so much left to explore. I've been a member since 2009, and my highest level wizzy is a 130. Don't feel the need to max everything out. Stay at a low level for a while.

      I play almost everyday. Gardening, watching, participating in PVP, farming, assisting other wizzy's and chatting. I haven't done any BOX events or beastmoon and other new things. I will be hitting all those when I retire.

      Willow, my favorite editor put it best. You need to figure out what you want to get out of the game. At the end of the day, you are driving the bus.

      Just my thoughts.

      First off @Dylan Windwalker. Bro, same.

      Second, @JaredSpellFrost I think brought up the best point: there are far better games out there.

      If you are looking to relive some nostalgia—and don't mind paying a premium for it—coming back to Wiz might be a good choice. Otherwise, pass.

      Re: Is Wizard101 Worth Playing in 2021?

      Seems like multi-quote is broken, so I apologize for the mention lol.
      @Cosmos @Dylan Windwalker It is interesting you guys say that you are more likely to be social in game, to me. Personally, I am the exact opposite. In game, I tend to be more reclusive and just stick to myself which has made the social aspect of the game minimal for me. However, in real life I am more likely to interact with others and meet new people. I guess I need to open up more online, but I find it hard to have a casual conversation without being able to see the other person.

      Still holding out hope for a membership sale soon .

      Re: Is Wizard101 Worth Playing in 2021?

      I think that this game is worth still playing but don't put too much further investment into the game (as in don't buy anything more than Crowns Shop items). As everyone has already mentioned, the game has a variety of problems and this game is starting to lose some steam. However, play it casually and see how things go! Enjoy the story and other activities, but don't get caught up in what's meta.

      Re: Is Wizard101 Worth Playing in 2021?

      UPDATE: I caved in and bought a membership... and I've been questing for about 7 hours today. Oh. my. gosh. I can't believe how much charm this game still has. It surprised me to see how many players the game still contained and made me feel a lot better about my decision to purchase the subscription. It's been a blast so far to quest through Grizzleheim on my Storm wizard, and so far have no regrets. I think the game definitely has enough content for it to be worth it, especially if you have unfinished wizards and projects. Thank you all for your input, and I am sorry to say I doubted the game.

      P.s. A thing that I had noticed that changed that I am not the largest fan of was to critical. Why is it a separate chance to double damage on each enemy for AoE hits? It makes PvE battles so much more of a nuisance . Secondly, there are many new spells trainable in Ravenwood! I really love all of these additional trainable spells and think these were a great choice to include.
