Created in October of 2020, the WizNewsletter serves as a way for students and staff to recap on the month's updates. WizNetworkers spend countless hours researching, writing, editing, and implementing each section so that the happenings of the wizarding world do not go unnoticed. Let’s get into the news from the past month!

Our brilliant development team is excited to tease much-anticipated guilds! The idea of guilds has been prospered since 2015 and nearly here. But what can a guild offer students? Well, guilds offer a chance to form coalitions with each other where you can roleplay, strengthen bonds with friends, and more. This can be expected to be released in the near future so keep your eyes peeled!
Celebrate this Spring season by hopping into the Bunny Burrow and helping out the bunnies! Complete quests to earn event tokens, including finding Spring Eggs and Golden Eggs throughout the Burrow, baking a delicious treat, and decorating eggs. The event tokens earned can be used to purchase several rewards, such as the Spring Hats, scarves, and a Spring Basket!
This Gameplay Update the Unspeakable Team has brought us another mid-update patch, loaded with both new content and possible upcoming content. Explore some new quests such as the "Scribbler Letdown," and "Stars in the Dark." While also parkouring your way through the new parkour in the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom and Greenhouses. There is also now a helper NPC for finding the library and a Wizarding Economics Professor in the castle in which you can access the marketplace.

We are super excited and we sure hope you guys are too!
We had some strong teams at this month's 4v4 dueling and flying tournaments. The arena team kicked off this competitive month with an exciting flying tournament where Invisibilia (Aurora), AkrasiaX (Feyre_Solaire), TallBlondeDude (Tall_Morte), and iSpitLikeALlama (Llama_Alzarin) won by a narrow margin of just 2 points! Following this, we had our dueling tournament where Tillyular123 (Tilly_Solaire), Salmandingo (Sal_Ackerman), Bastaii, and Expiroces (Tonk) emerged victoriously. Congrats to everyone who participated and as always we hope to see you next month!
As promised, the Inquisitorial Squad made a comeback by hosting a Spring Community Engagement Event full of activities and fun.
