This weekend saw a lot of Wizard 101 play. Obligatorily, the joy I get from opening a load of presents every time I log on is pretty compulsory. Anyway, I have been zapping away at the O’Leary rats (and cats?) mucking about on the rooftops of Marleybone. Right now, I’ve been getting through the Hyde Park zone. I made it to the last boss of the zone, but he kicked my butt pretty hard. The rest of the zone has kept me lightly on my toes. At level 30, however, I think I might be a tad overleveled. I am not sure.
Unlike the sidewalk safe Wizard City and Krokotopia, Marleybone’s safe areas are not as clearly marked. In Hyde Park the whole zone happens across the rooftops, and the corners of the roofs are pretty safe. However, when moving from rooftop to rooftop I had to be more careful watching mobs. As a veteran MMO player, I am not finding this exercise very hard or tiring. There are plenty of MMOs where I’ve had to visualize agro bubbles in order to quickly move past a throng of mobs. I didn’t find Hyde Park much different. Perhaps as I move in to the next Marleybone zones, they will continue to switch up mob pathing and available safe areas.
I plan on continuing on with the Marleybone story. Grizzleheim remains calling to me in the background. I’ve completed the first content chunk of Grizzleheim (Sv. Pass), and I think I have the Vigrid Roughland zone next. Any tips on a good time to make a waylay to Vigrid Roughland are appreciated.
