Spooky Spooks Spook this way!

That's right, Halloween is right here on Wizard101!
For me, it's one of the most exciting times in Wizard, alongside with Christmas of course.
Spooky Bob is back to the Spiral bringing new awesome spooky Halloween items alongside 3 pets: Nightmare, Zombie Piggle and Ghost Dragon.
Don't forget to check out Jack Hallow and his friends for those ghostbusters and pumpkin listener quests for that extra fun.
Now, onto the good new stuff, wizards level 13+ check out Dworgyn at Nightside for a new Halloween quest, looks like veggies are turning evil, and there's a whole new enemy behind all this, and you get the chance to receive a new spooktacular pet!
Enjoy this Halloween wizards, and beware of bunnies *wink wink*

Schools - Balance

The Magic of Balance is harmony and finding equality in all things. It draws on elements from each of the other schools, incorporating bits and pieces of those other energies to fill in the spaces between the Schools. Wizards who focus on Balance Magic, known as Sorcerers, are broad-minded. In their minds, all things deserve consideration, and there may be many answers to a single question. The drawback to this point of view, is a tendency to seem impassive or indecisive and never willing to embrace a side or position. Sorcerers use Transmutation to blend the forces of the other schools for their spells. 

Sorcery does not draw upon internal aspects of the caster, nor does it rely on external forces. Instead, it is the creation of something new by combining elements in unique and powerful ways.
  The Balance School will train its student wizards to be effective in group play. Balance Wizards are most effective in group play because they have the ability to buff other players as well as themselves. Although effective in group-play, they can still sufficiently play alone. They have a little bit of everything, which allows them to surpass most monster resistances, heal themselves a little bit, and buff players. 

Schools - Death

The Death School will train its student wizards to steal and support themselves. Death Wizards belong to an advanced school, simply because most of their spells take multiple step combinations to use effectively. 

Their spells aren’t the strongest, but some have the ability to absorb health from the enemy, which serves as a way for them to heal themselves. They have many preparatory spells that allow them to build up high-damage spells. 
  Death is about ending and closure. All things pass eventually, and time cannot be held back forever. Wizards devoted to Death Magic, known as Necromancers, understand this fact about everything around them and strive to face it without fear. They try to make the most of their time. Beware, though; some Wizards become morbid or try to cheat death through undeath. Necromancers use Whispers to strengthen their will, and draw on the power of courage to channel their own fears out of themselves and at their opponents. Death Magic sits between Ice and Storm, for the cold energy of undeath draws on those two forces.
