The spring 2018 update came with two new skeleton key bosses. The first one is Roberto, twin brother of the well-known Diego the Duelmaster. If your wizard is level 5 or higher make sure to visit our favorite Wizard101 horsey and find out what’s going on between the two of them!
The quest is an introduction to Skeleton key bosses with a cute, short story. While new players will get to face their first skeleton key boss, experienced players will get another boss to add to their “I defeated them” collection.
Roberto – The Boss
Roberto is located in Old Town, in the house on the right side just before you enter Firecat Alley. The location will be located on your map when you accept Diego’s quest, so no need to worry about missing it.
Roberto is a Fire school boss with 350 health. Since he doesn’t have any minions to help him in the battle, the battle won’t be too much of a struggle. Even if you’re a level 5 wizard who plays this game the second day you’ll be able to beat him without too much of a problem.
We didn’t test whether he has any resist/boost to specific schools, so if you have any information about that, please let us know in the comments. Same with cheats: we didn’t record that he has any, so if you find some let us know.
Some people may regard Roberto’s drops as bad. However, that’s far from the reality. Yes, 95% of players won’t use 95% of his drops, but after all, Roberto is a boss for level 5 wizards. Drops are well-balanced, according to his rank and level requirement.
So, what can we actually get from him? The most desirable drop is his wand, Roberto’s Rapier. Stats/cards given from the wand are nothing special; you can find the same ones in the bazaar. However, its look is really nice and is a great addition for stitching outfits.
Other notable drops are 7 day mounts, which are pretty good for free-to-play wizards that are limited to wizard city (and maybe Krokotopia) only. Novice socket wrenches are also a nice addition to his loot table. Free-to-play players might make good use of them, especially since they often remain at the same level for longerÂ periods of time and don’t need to change gear so often.
In order to enter Roberto’s lair, you’ll need to collect a wooden skeleton key. You can check our guideÂ hereÂ to see all known locations for skeleton keys. Note that these are pre 2018 spring update locations and new locations have been added including in Wizard City.
From now on, maps will have a little sign if there is a bossÂ who drops a key around that location. So there are high chances that this will get updated as well and even more bosses will drop desired keys. Right now, it’s rumored around the twitter that Kraken and Nightshade dropÂ wooden keys. The perfect opportunity for free-to-play players to get some of them. High-level wizards may also find these locations interesting as there are a number of other wooden key bosses.
Do you like the new wooden key boss? Will you farm it?
