Just saw the new ad on TV whilst watching Avatar: the Last Airbender. It confirms most suspicions that people had about the new pet systems, which is great. What's not so great is that, although the commercial is playing, the test realm remains closed. However, this weekend will probably be the so-called "big-reveal" and test realm will open! In my experience, the test realm opens on weekends.
When they do release it, it will be a party the likes of which Wizard101 has never known(except for Dragonspyre, housing, Grizzleheim, and mounts). I can't wait to make an ice clockwork golem!
