Badge Busters:
Wizard City Badges

Badges have been a staple of Wizard101 since the very beginning. Whether you get them by experiencing the main story, plowing through specific enemies, or exploring recreation outside of the duel circle, there seems to be a Badge for nearly everything these days.

In this series, I’ll be going through each world, listing off the various badges you can obtain in each, and giving tips and tricks towards getting each one. With that being said, though, what better place to start than Wizard City? This world has a total of 24 badges and 12 Extra Credit Badges!

In the 2024 Spring update, Wizard101’s badge system was revitalized so that players can pursue a completely obtainable badge list. For all the Badge Completionists out there, you can pursue the standard badge list with no worries about retired or insane badges getting in your way. Additionally, for those who have completed these retired or insane badges, they now show up as Extra Credit. Extra Credit badges do NOT count toward the Category or All count. Learn more in our Wizard101 Badge Completionist Guide.

Next, let’s divide these badges in categories based on their type!

Main Quest Line Badges: 2/24

There are 2 badges you acquire just by finishing the main quest line in Wizard City:

  • Hero of Unicorn Way (complete all main quests in Unicorn Way)
  • Wizard City Protector (defeat Lord Nightshade)

Badges from Completing Dungeons or Side Quests: 10/24

There are 10 badges you can acquire from doing objectives on the side, too! These include:

  • Three Streets Savior (complete all main and side quests in Cyclops Lane, Triton Avenue (minus Crab Alley), and Firecat Alley)
  • Golem Tower Champion (clear Golem Tower in Golem Court)
  • Master Diplomat (complete all quests in Colossus Boulevard)
  • Sunken City Survivor (clear Sunken City)
  • Triton Underwater Hero (Defeat King Amadeo)
  • Overachiever (complete all side quests in Wizard City)
  • Savior of Wizard City (complete all main and side quests in Wizard City)
  • Wizard City Explorer (complete “Find the Smiths”)
  • Briskbreeze Champion (clear Briskbreeze Tower)
  • Waterworks Warrior (clear Waterworks)

(Hey, so you know how the events of Briskbreeze result in the events in the House of Scales? Why can’t Briskbreeze be mandatory for Zigzag then? Just saying.)

Enemy Smashers: 12/24

And, last but not least, badges you acquire by defeating a certain number of a certain type of enemy. I’ve dubbed these “Enemy Smashers” because that’s precisely what you do: beat up enemies until you get the badge. Yay! 😀

To understand Enemy Smasher Badges, you first need to understand Categories. All the enemies in the Spiral fall under some archetype, ranging from the most common one (Undead) to very niche enemies found in very few places (Gobblers). Some enemies even fall under multiple categories!

Now, all that being said, I’ll go over some general tips and tricks that you can use to acquire some of these!

  • Gobbler Chaser -> Gobbler Catcher  -> Gobbler Gobbler: 

You’ll probably get up to Gobbler Chaser (25 gobblers) by the time you’re done with Colossus Boulevard, so if you’re gunning for Gobbler Gobbler (100 gobblers) you don’t have far to go! The best choice for farming would be the Gobbler Scavenger, as it’s literally the first enemy you encounter in this wintry wonderland. Save for some out-of-place enemies in Mirage, Gobblers are almost exclusive to Colossus Boulevard, so if you’re out to get this set of badges, bundle up!

  • Giant Hunter -> Giant Smasher -> Blood of the Giants:
    Much like how Gobblers are almost entirely exclusive to Colossus Boulevard, the largest concentration of Giants you’ll find throughout the Spiral—Cyclopes, Trolls, Minotaurs, or otherwise—can be found in Cyclops Lane. Every single common enemy in Cyclops Lane counts as a Giant, so don’t feel like you have to be careful who to pull into a fight!
  • Undead Stalker (50 undead) -> Undead Conquerer (500 undead):
    To be honest, you won’t have to go far out of your way to get these first 4 badges. You’ll be fighting plenty of Undead goons as you romp around the Spiral (fun fact: there are 550+ different enemies throughout the Spiral that classify as Undead!), so don’t worry if this is as far as you want to go!

  • Elemental Dispeller (50 elementals) -> Elemental Banisher (250 Elementals) -> Elementalist (500 elementals):
    Just like with the first four Undead-related Enemy Smashers, you’ll be fighting a ton of Elemental enemies as you plow through the main story. Wizard City unfortunately doesn’t have many good spots to farm Elemental enemies (the only three enemies that fall under the category in Wizard City are Evil Snowmen in Colossus Boulevard, Magma Men in Firecat Alley, and the Ice-exclusive Ice Colossus in Ravenwood’s Ice Tower), as these enemies will often be accompanied by folks of different categories.That being said, however, if you do want to go out of your way to snag these 3 badges, my top choice would definitely go to the Desert Golem in Krokotopia (see below).

  • Golem Breaker -> Golem Destroyer:
    Don’t be fooled by the name of this badge, farming Golem Tower is NOT the way to go about getting this badge! The REAL way to go about this is an enemy I mentioned earlier: the Desert Golem. Speaking of which…



I’d like to give a special shoutout to Desert Golems in Krokotopia’s Palace of Fire. They have the distinct privilege of being both a Giant, an Elemental, AND a Golem, so if you want to rack up your kill count for all three of those categories at the same time, this is the enemy for you!

Extra Credit: +10

The majority of these badges are a continuation of the Enemy Smasher badges. But because they no longer count toward your standard badge count, these challenges have become optional for Badge Completionists.

  • Undead Crusader (1,000 undead) -> Undead Executioner (20,000 undead):

Now this is where the grinding sets in. Of course, the easiest way to go about this, one would think, is to just farm Lost Souls in Unicorn Way; however, I’d argue that that isn’t the optimal strategy. The earliest one can potentially encounter Undead enemies two at a time are some relatively remote locations in Krokotopia. However, for convenience sake I’d go for literally any area in Dragonspyre. Thanks to the lore of that place, it’s filled to the teeth with Undead enemies. If you’re a bit higher-leveled than that,the first few levels of Briskbreeze Tower are fantastic as well; there, you’ll be fighting four enemies at once as opposed to the regular two! (Oh, and regarding the 20,000 kill requirement for Undead Executioner… why. Just… why.)


There are 7 badges lumped together in this one. Undead Crusader, Slayer, Enforcer, Assassin, Cutthroat, Master and Executioner.

Editor’s Note: Given so many enemies required for these badges it’s no wonder they got marked as extra credit! 10+ years and my main character is still only at about 8k undead.

  • Technomancer (500 Golems)
  • Elementalist (500 Elementals)
  • Blood of the Giants (350 Giants)

These remaining badges are just more Enemy Smashers, so use the tips from the previous section to finish them off. Just remember, as Extra Credit badges, they are completely optional for Completion!

Retired: +2

The last two badges were awarded for completing promotional quests for Karamelle in 2020. Unfortunately, both quests are now retired, so the badges are unobtainable unless you completed them before the release of Karamelle. For this reason, they have been marked as Extra Credit and will not penalize your Badge count or show up on your list if you did not obtain them.

  • Promotions Associate (complete “Marketing is Everything”)
  • Associate Delivery Person (complete “Life Is Like…”)

And that’s it for now!
More worlds to come, so stay tuned!

  • Wizard city has no elementals. Apparently the snowmen don’t count. Somehow I gave 465/500 but connot progress further. What’s up? And Colossus Boulevard has NO colossus or giants. Just saying.

    • Hi, thanks for your comment. I’ve just tried both snowmen in Wizard City, and you’re right, they don’t count as elementals anymore. However, the Desert Golems in Krokotopia still count as elementals, giants and golems, so I recommend farming there. In terms of giants in Wizard City, you will find them in Cyclops Lane rather than Colossus Boulevard.

  • I know this is a bit of an older post so this has already been figured by now, but the earliest place to farm two undead enemies is Lady Blackhopes tower on unicorn way. You’ll have to fight her and a Skeletal Corsair

  • When my storm wizard looks at his list of badges, it says he has 35 out of 36 wizard city badges. Any idea what the other two are?

    • Promotions Associate and Associate Delivery Person

  • Bloods of the Giants is probably one of my favorite badges. In my opinion, it fits so well for any myth wizard (my first wizard was myth).

    • I prefer Giant Hunter! :p
