Wizard101 - How To Play (Dueling)

Players control their character in the game world either using the arrow keys or WASD while the spacebar is used to jump. Players can also interact with many of their surroundings and the games interface with the mouse.

When you walk up to the enemies in Wizard101 you create a dueling circle which allows up to 4 players and 4 enemies to battle together in turn based combat. Each player takes his or her turn at selected a spell card from to damage a particular opponent. In later levels players also unlock the ability to heal, shield and many others. After players have all taken their turn (30 seconds to act) the enemies will retaliate.

Every turn of combat the player generates a 'pip' with each spell requiring a certain number of pips to cast, the more powerful the spell the more pips are required. There are some spells that require 0 pips to cast allowing players to build up pips overtime to unleash devastating spells. Occasionally wizards will generate power pips that are worth two pips, but they must be spent on a spell from your chosen school.

A duel ends when the player or the enemy reaches 0 health. As players advance through the Wizard101 world they acquire extra cards that offer a variety of effects, damage and skill animations.

Wizard101 Is A Fun Game For All Ages.


Wizard101 - Schools

Each wizard in Wizard101 belongs to a school which determines which form of spell they are more likely to learn. Wizards can either choose this school when they first create their character or use the school that is recommended to them based on a series of questions. Every school has a professor where wizards can learn new spells, alternatively wizards may use training points (gained every level) to learn spells from a different school.

The main schools of Wizard101 are Fire, Storm, Ice, Death, Life, Balance, Myth. There are three extra schools Star, Sun, and Moon which can be obtained at a higher level but cannot be selected as starting schools.
