Mirage Brings Magic Carpets And Castle Magic To Wizard101

PLANO, Texas, Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- KingsIsle™ Entertainment released a new expansion to Wizard101® today where players can quest through a vast desert expanse known as Mirage, increase their levels to 120 and explore creativity with Castle Magic.

Mirage invites players into an Arabian Nights-themed adventure, where they'll explore vast dune deserts and treacherous jungle rifts ruled by petty Noble House Cats. They'll delve into Istanboa, the secret underground lair of the Vipers and Boas, and they'll walk the mean streets of Aggrobah, the City of Thieves, where the crime lord Ali Baboon holds sway. Finally, they'll face the nefarious Grandfather Spider and try to prevent his dark plans from reaching a catastrophic conclusion.

"Mirage raises the bar for Wizard101 in so many great ways," said Josef Hall, vice president and creative director at KingsIsle Entertainment. "Aside from classic moments where you chase down Ali Baboon on a Magic Carpet and end up in a cantina-styled 'Raincore' Pit, our overall character details, cinematics and storytelling are at an all-time high with this expansion."

Players who attain level 120 will be crowned Champion wizards with an in-game badge and will take on a quest to learn a new type of spell where you divide your damage among the number of targets you choose. High-level spell decks, amulets and wands will have a new Pip Conversion stat, and Legendary Weapons are now available to be crafted in the Arcanum.

All players will find a new quest in the lower-level world of Marleybone, where they will learn more about Castle Magic. Castle Magic allows house decorators a way to use sensors, switches and buttons to cast magical spells for their house guests, and even allows players to build simple puzzles similar to those found in the early dungeons of Wizard101.

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages.
