Final Bastion’s Guide to
Wizard101 Hoard and Lore Packs


This article serves as a guide that highlights some of the finest drops attainable from the various Hoard and Lore packs found in Wizard101. Thus, no gardening, furniture or jewel packs are listed below. These are purely our opinions and can very much differ from any of yours. We would very much love to hear your opinions in the comments section below. We also linked the pack guides for each pack we’ve published in the past for you to get a more in depth look on the items you can find within.

What is the difference between a Hoard and a Lore Pack?


While this may vary from time to time, the general idea is that Lore Packs are intended for spells and Hoard for mounts. Lore packs tend to have about 3 unique lore spells found within that can initially be obtained exclusively from this pack alone. Typically, after a certain amount of time has gone by, spells are added to the Loremaster and made craftable too.

On the other hand, Hoard packs tend to contain a mount or a set of mounts exclusive to the pack alone. After a long period of time, the mount may be added as a drop on a skeleton key boss. However, this is not always the case.

Super and Combo Packs


As a recent twist Kingsisle has been introducing combo and super packs for a very limited time. This acts sort of like a sale or promotion on specific packs including retired ones. Combo packs are when two packs are literally smashed into one. Thus, anything you can obtain from each pack can be obtained in this single limited time pack. For instance, we briefly witnessed the Witch’s and Pharaoh’s Hoard Combo Pack. Super packs are those with slightly higher odds of obtaining the rarest items found within such as spells and mounts.

Is this how packs always work?


No. As a recent trend in 2020, we’ve been seeing more and more changes to how packs work. What I am referring to is the addition of the Sinbad and Doomsday Krok Hoard Packs. These are pretty much regular hoard packs that you can purchase from the Crown Shop. However, they have a matching gauntlet (house dungeon) that drops most of the same items found within the pack.

This dungeon can be either purchased as a bundle from the online store or crafted with reagents that you get exclusively from the pack. Keep in mind that you can still make use of a friend’s gauntlet if you can’t get one yourself. Thus, most items you get from the packs can be acquired for free with a little perseverance.

With his main focus in Wizard101 PvE, you will find Cody knee deep fighting one of the Spiral's major bosses with an army of wizards at his disposal. Proficient in quite a few other areas of the game such as gardening, fishing, and most of all monstrology. Why monstrology? He chases after every single creature out there and catalogs them for all to see!

  • Hey man, cool article. Just wanted to point out that the Islanders Hoard got retired recently. Thanks!

    • Thanks! 😀
      Nearly forgot to update that pack.

  • The release date on the Nimbari Hoard Pack is incorrect. The pack was released on January 17, 2019. You claimed that the pack released on January of 2018, which is incorrect, because the pack is Empyrea part 2 themed and Empyrea part 2 didn’t even exist in 2018. Please change the release date’s year to indicate correctly that the pack was released in 2019 instead of 2018. Thanks!

    • Fixed! Made a typo while updating the entire article yesterday. Still getting used to the year change.

  • This has to be the my favorite guide to date. Dont get me wrong, all of y’alls guides are extremely helpful, but this one is so easy to navigate to particular packs and easy to read. I LOVE IT!!!

  • If possible could we get an update of this?

    • Not extremely outdated at the moment. The Decaversary and Elven packs are missing as of now which will be added soon.
