New update for Wizard101: Crying Sky Raid brings fresh features and events
07/26/2023 - KingsIsle Entertainment has announced the launch of its latest update, The Crying Sky Raid. This update includes several new features to improve gameplay, including a new guild boss challenge, advanced customization options including name and gender changes, and new PvE and PvP events.
The eagerly awaited "Crying Sky Raid" forms the core of this update and is a brand new guild boss challenge that will test even the most experienced wizards. In this exciting team raid for max-level wizards, players return to the ruins of the world of Azteca to battle a cult of crazed dinosaurs and a cosmic horror. The raid adds a fresh dimension of strategy and cooperation to the game, offering exciting raid gear and other rewards such as new equipment, pets and jewels for solving the unprecedented puzzle challenges.
The update also gives players more character personalization options than ever before with the new name and gender change feature. Players now have the ability to change their characters' name and gender once, giving them the opportunity to redefine their wizard's identity. Numerous new names have also been added to make each wizard even more unique.
Other improvements include updates to Challenge Mode, an option for players to experience boss battles on two different difficulty levels and with the corresponding rewards. The enhancements provide a tailored gameplay experience to suit players of different skill levels.
Fans of the monthly Beastmoon Hunt and Beastmoon Monster Mayhem events will be treated to new options, rewards, and gameplay enhancements that provide an enriched Beastmoon experience for team-based PvP battles or PvE boss monster hunts. Unique rewards such as new event pets and Beastforms are also available.
Lastly, the Crying Sky Raid update also improves the Hatchmaking Kiosk, allowing players to expand their pet collection and make it easier to hatch their pets with a friend or another player. Pets that are hatched in this way allow you to earn loaner rewards, giving players the opportunity to really grow their pet collection.
