On November 29th, 2017, A new quest was unveiled in Wizard City’s Olde Town during our Latest KI Live (you can see this at the 39:30 mark on YouTube). This quest features Derrick Lawrence (AKA Derrick Blaze), our latest Make-A-Wish VIP to visit KingsIsle Entertainment.
We were honored that Derrick’s wish was to visit with us at KingsIsle, and we spent a wonderful day with him in October showing him the ins and outs of game development. During Derrick’s visit we showered him with gifts both in-game and out! It was amazing having him.
Derrick’s presence can be experienced in two places in Wizard101. First, Derrick, his brother, and his mother all performed voice over lines, and they can be heard having a discussion about “a wizard school” in Zanadu from Empyrea Part 1.
Second, Derrick also offers a new quest called “Play it Forward” for players who are level 13+ as he introduces players to the Team Up Kiosk in Olde Town. Derrick also acts as a faction vendor for those who have earned badges from completing Team Ups with other players. If you’ve earned the right Team Up badges, you will unlock the various items he has for sale, including a Team Up Kiosk of your own that you can place within your housing, a set of stitchable gear, a pet, and a mount.
Thanks for visiting with us, Derrick, and for helping us make Wizard101’s Olde Town an even more magical place for Wizards to visit.
