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!

This quarter, Griffins have won the house cup! If you'd like to celebrate the victory, Griffin or otherwise, talk to the SysterTM NPC outside of the Great Hall Courtyard. We're excited for the journey to come in the final House Cup quarter of 2021!
We recently saw the return of the highly anticipated Butterbrew Festival! By talking to NPC Kevin in the Great Hall, you can join in the festivities with five main quests, two side quests, themed minigames - including a brand new dropper map! You can earn event tokens by completing quests, mazes, droppers, or parkours which allows you to purchase rewards such as Barrel Bomb Spell, Butterbrew Toast Emote, Butterbrew themed scarfs and banners, and the 2021 Butterbrew Tankard! Be sure to check it out soon, as the Butterbrew Festival is over on October 9th!
The Systems team has done an experience rework on the server. The amounts of experience given from quests, mobs, and academic credits have all been increased or decreased in order to become more balanced. The amount of experience given from Daily Activities now depends on your level and its difficulty, and the minigames Daily Activities are now available for anyone who is level 10 and above. We hope you enjoy these changes!
The Developer team has made many new changes and improvements to a couple of our server minigames! New games have been added to Party Games, new questions have been added to its Trivia game, along with some other changes and fixes. New maps have been added to Melting Floor. There were also some general server improvements. We hope you have fun playing!
In September, the Inquisitorial Squad brought us more spectacular Community Engagements! During the event, you were able to play the ‘Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice’ minigame, which was designed to bring out your inner barista, where three teams raced to see who could make the most lattes. There was also the ‘Last Day of Break!’ hangout where players could take part in an elytra course, purchase collectables and make an Everlasting Butterbrew drink! We hope everyone had a wonderful time, and that you can join in for our next Community Engagement activities!
