If you’re like me and haven’t been keeping up on the recent patches this little bit of news might have escaped your notice. The game patch released on April 13th added a Training Point reset option. O-M-F-G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is a new lease on life for fans of Wizard 101. Thank you so very much!
Selecting secondary and tertiary magic schools when you’re very new to the game is difficult. You don’t even know the abilities of your primary school, let alone choose a complimentary secondary school of magic. Moreover, you don’t know enough about your preferred play-style and combat strategy to make such choices. Unfortunately, until now those choices were permanent.
I agonized over my choices as I do in all games. I played the ones that were of interest to me to level 10 and then created my main character. For my secondary, I used the knowledge gained from testing the various classes and asked around. That’s still not enough to make those choices that early in the game. It was MANY levels later when my personal combat style emerged and when it did, I knew that I’d made the wrong choice for how I preferred to play.
It wasn’t an insurmountable problem. You can buy spells from all the schools of magic as Treasure Cards. However, that’s a bit expensive if you find a base set of spells you want access to long term. Resetting those choices is almost like getting a new character. This also creates the opportunity for players at max level to choose combinations explicitly geared toward PVP if that’s what they’re doing until more content arrives.
Wow, just wow! I can’t wait to make new choices, knowing what I know now about the game, and how I play it. Death School of magic here I come! That will make me Balance + Death + ??? Figuring out which to use as third is going to be exciting too. I already know what game I’ll be playing this weekend.
To reset your training points visit Mr. Lincoln in Golem Court. The reset option costs 3500 Crowns making this is a micro-transaction feature.
Now if Runes of Magic would realize they need to implement a high cost, even one time only option, for resetting your secondary class in that game, my MMO gaming world would be pretty darn sweet. PLEASE implement in ROM. Take the elite skills back without even refunding the materials and gold they cost to acquire. Wipe the skills clean and refund the Talent Points. Puhleze implement this sort of reset in ROM. Class fundamentals were changed AND the ability to self-buff from the secondary was eliminated all in the release patch. That's not right. Please fix!
