W101 Spirit of Ignorance – Skeleton Key Boss


The summer 2022 update began a  massive change in Wizard101’s Skeleton Key bosses. Wooden and stone keys are being phased out and gold keys will be the primary way to unlock all the new key bosses. Gold keys will mainly be found through events and as drops from existing key bosses. The update has introduced 10 new key bosses. Four of these are brand new, while the other six are old key bosses revamped with a higher difficulty. One of the revamped Skeleton Key Bosses is a boss located in Crab Alley – Spirit of Ignorance (a former wooden key boss), let’s check it out in this article!

Cheats and Battle Process


At the start of Round 1 Spirit of Ignorance will place a -300% incoming damage aura for 99 rounds.

This aura makes the boss immune to any damage.

This cheat can be easily countered with Supernova. After taking out the aura this message will appear:

The boss is no longer immune and it can take damage. The boss will now cast Aegis Protected shields of every wizard’s school in the fight (except Balance) on itself.  It will re-cast the shields every time it gets hit (or is removed by Steal Ward).

If you cast a prism to bypass the shield, Spirit of Ignorance will say.

However, nothing will happen. Other cheats include instant-removal of any charms and traps and a Shadow Deferred Overtime Damage that instantly kills its target – this cheat is activated after 6-8 rounds.

3 Round Strategy


Defeating this Boss can be really easy if you use the right strategy. For this battle it’s necessary to bring a balance wizard.
