Wizard101 Loremaster Farming 101

As of the Summer 2022 update, Loremaster no longer drops spells. Read on to see where Lore spells (via spellements) now drop from.

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:

Other Spells

If you are looking for other dropped spells, check out this guide for the spells dropped from other bosses in the game that are not dropped from Loremaster.

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 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,
  • Krampus,
  • Headless Horseman,
  • Reindeer Knight,
  • Deer Knight,
  • Keeper of the Flame, and
  • Loremaster.

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).

Destiny is an ice wizard who travels the Spiral with the companionship of her snow beast Isabella. Once a pvper, all she now has to show for those days is trophies. Currently she’s more into exploring the Spiral and seeing what it offers. She likes training pets in her free time. When not traveling the Spiral you can find her hunting for shiny, fluffy, or cute items to decorate her Wysteria Villa with. She will most likely greet you with a cheery meow if you find her in the Spiral. Can be found sometimes stuck in a tree during Christmas.


  • I really don’t understand the reasoning behind the fact that the spellements and tc’s feel just as rare as the spells themselves.

  • KI just lowered the number of spells dropped and is now dropping Spellements in place of learned spells.
    Which spells are still dropped?

  • i get a card drop about every 100 kills or so, and to get the card drop you want its like a 1/22 chance so its roughly a 1/2200 chance to get the card you want. happy farming

  • Don’t Forget Beary Surprise, Camp Bandit & Splashsquatch

  • I don’t know how many people have luck here but I have been fighting loremaster for 3 full days and 3 refills of manna (577)and 0 luck at all! this is getting very old.

    • The drop rate is honestly entirely trash to the point that it’s not even worth trying, in my opinion.

  • I just wanted to chime in that season spells are much easier to drop. I have fought loremaster for fun during the holidays and easily learned krampus and headless horseman within 5 runs.

  • New lore spells were released in the summer 2021 update. Will those be added to this list? Or are they exclusive to the pack?

    • I believe that when new lore spells are added to the game they are only exclusively available to the pack for circa the first year. Later on they are added to Loremaster and crafting.

  • I want pigsie so bad so bad but don’t know if I ever will get it… 🙁

  • i never knew i could do this i feel like this is really helps players through dragon and celis

  • Got Catalan on my second battle! Shocked to see the drop rate. Here I was confident it wouldn’t take too long to get a lot of them lol.

  • How about the Grizzleheim Lore Spells?

  • It took me over 1400 runs to get pigsie on my life. During that time, I got 13 other spells. And during that entire time, I only got TWO pigsie TC. I have found I get a drop every hundred runs or so. Months of my life lost in that dungeon…

  • So, even though it takes a lot of battles to narrow in on the exact drop rate, we can rule out (but not with 100% certainty) a drop rate greater than some number if we personally observe a lot of failures with no successes.

  • Thank you, I’m going to be farming this now (Lvl 55 Ice Wizard) and when my life gets to DS I will have him farming there too.

  • You forgot one spell, called hammer of Thor. 475 storm damage for 5 pips, and shatter one blade

  • I’ve farmed Loremaster over 100 times, and still haven’t gotten a single spell. Really not sure what the drop rate is.

    • When you’ve failed 200 times, you’re pretty safe assuming the drop rate is less than 3%. It’s always possible to have 200 failures with no successes regardless of the probability, so we figure out what value of p, the quantity (1-p)^200 will drop below some threshold, say .005. For this, the answer is we can rule out anything above 2.7%.

      Of course, a better approximation would be observed if we took a number of people’s attempts – look at number of tries until the first success, or number of tries so far without any successes. I’m currently at about 50 tries without success.

      KI should be called out for setting a drop rate this low. Sure, it should be “difficult”, but not crazy-making.

  • When I saw this, I thought it was going to be a guide about mental endurance…
