Wizard101 Loremaster Farming 101
Somewhere in the Atheneum of Dragonspyre lies a sigil to what possibly could be one of most farmed bosses in the Spiral. Her name is Loremaster and often times a crowd can be found outside this sigil. Most wizards know who this boss is but for those hearing this name for the first time, wondering who Loremaster is and what she drops, don’t worry cause here are some answers.
Who is the Loremaster?
Loremaster is a minor cheating boss that appeared in game alongside with the Aquila dungeons update to Wizard101 in August 2013. She appears in Dragonspyre offering a quest. There is no minimum level requirement to accept her quest “The Lore Master” for access to her sigil and team up. The dungeon can not be ported into so you have to join by jumping on the sigil or using team up. You can find wizards of all levels forming teams or just you can farm with friends just for her drops.
What are Loremaster’s Cheats?
The dungeon consists of Loremaster and her three font minions. Her three minions are the Font of Strength, Font of Life, and Font of Weakness. The only cheat this battle has is that the Font of Strength will cast a 50% sun school Dragonblade every 3 rounds out of turn on Loremaster starting the first round.
While this cheat is annoying, you will find the arsenal of spells her minions use to be an even bigger nuisance:
- The Font of Strength will only cast Buffs:
- The Font of Life will only cast Heals and Spirit Armor:
- The Font of Weakness will only cast Debuffs and Mana Burn:
Loremaster can use some of the spells she drops in battle. It’s not recommended to solo this battle and better to farm with other players whether they are friends or randoms who are also farming.
What Spells does Loremaster Drop?
Her unique loot table is what attracts wizards from all over the Spiral. Before Spring 2022, you had the chance to learn crafted and Lore pack spells upon defeating Loremaster. Now, as of the Summer 2022 update, you can no longer receive spells or spellements from Loremaster, but you can still receive treasure card versions of Lore spells. Read on to see where Lore spells (via spellements) now drop from.
These spells include:

Some of these spells are only available during certain holidays (via spellements). These seasonal spells are available when the Halloween and Christmas (including Christmas in July) events are active. With the Halloween event you can farm for Headless Horseman. During Christmas you can farm for Krampus and Reindeer Knight.
Drops at Halloween, from Bunferatu (via spellements)
Drops at Christmas & Christmas in July, from Krampus (via spellements)
Loremaster Drop Rates (Outdated)
A learned spell drop is rare to the point where testing it to get percentages is actually tough and would require a lot of battles. Don’t give up if you don’t get your desired spell first try! Once you receive a spell, you can’t receive it again. As you continue to gain new spells, your chance to get a spell and not some random Dragonspyre item comes down.
Drop Rate Testing
One reader Athina Adams did some testing through doing 282 battles on their 130 life wizard during the Christmas period, when the drop rate of seasonal spells is higher. These are the results they found. In those 282 runs they learned:
- Ninja Piglets,
- Headless Horseman,
- Reindeer Knight,
- Deer Knight,
- Keeper of the Flame, and
Athina calculated that chances of getting a regular Loremaster spell is about every 70 battles while seasonal spells take less than 20 battles. As said before, this is probably not entirely accurate because (as impressive as it sounds) 282 battles isn’t nearly enough to draw such conclusions. It’s still interesting to see as an example of one wizard’s luck!
Athine observed that treasure cards dropped on average one every ten battles. The seasonal treasure cards dropped way more often in comparison, shown by the 25 Krampus TCs and the 15 Reindeer Knight TCs Athina received. The normal TCs obtained were:
- Loremaster (x2),
- Handsome Fomori (x5),
- Winter Moon (x1),
- Hephaestus (x2),
- Angry Snowpig (x7),
- Athena Battle Sight (x1),
- Ninja Piglets (x1),
- Keeper of the Flame (x1),
- Ninja Pigs (x5),
- Samoorai (x2),
- Lord of Night (x1),
- Deer Knight (x2),
- Brimstone Revenant (x2),
- Luminous Weaver (x2),
- Goat Monk (x1), and
- Pigsie (x2).
Most Lore spells can be crafted. As of the Summer 2022 update, all Lore spells now drop, as spellements, from their individual packs and Gold Skeleton Key Bosses. The Deluxe Spellement Pack drops random Lore spellements. See our pack and key boss guides below for more information.
