Wizard101 Five B.O.X.E.S Event
Earlier today, the Wizard101 team quietly released a brand new event for the month of October that’s sure to be a treat for all the Doctor Who fans out there. We’ve been seeing a dashing Marleybonian named The Professor in Regent’s Square for some time now, and finally we get to see what he’s up to. The Five B.O.X.E.S Event has players assisting the Professor in stopping a new threat from tampering with the past. From the Update Notes, which you can read here:
The Professor, a strange but friendly Samaritan from outside the normal flow of time, has determined a handful of crisis points in the history of the Spiral! Someone, or something, is threatening to unravel much of what we know as true and fact – by nudging certain events, twisting others, and threatening to destroy yet more, this force puts Wizard City and all worlds of the Spiral at risk!
Where do I start?

WC Box Story Summary - Warning: Spoilers
For level 10 and above Wizards, the Five B.O.X.E.S. Event quest starts you out in Wizard City. To begin, speak to the Professor in the Commons. He should be near the tree, across the lane from Ambrose’s House.
From there, the Professor will warn you of some strange happenings in Wizard City, and for you to meet him at his Telegraph Box in Olde Town. Head over to Olde Town, where you’ll find some sigils around the Telegraph Box in the middle of the street.
Once inside, the Professor will inform you of some strange changes occurring in the past, and he wants you to check it out through the time portal. You find Dalia Falmea in her dorm room long before she became a professor at Ravenwood, and she’s….in the Ice school!? The remainder of your trip through this questline has you getting the young Dalia back on the correct path, and gaining a hint as to who may be interfering with the time stream.

Five Boxes Event: Zafaria
ZF Box Story Summary - Warning: Spoilers
You are going to find the Professor in Zafaria – Baobab Crossroads, right next to the ramp on the left as you enter. He informs you that we are still chasing Maestro. From there you are going to Baobab Market where the B.O.X is, where you will enter the sigil.
Here the story line takes a curve that will blow your mind. You will go to the world of Pirates, straight to the Skull Island. Once you get there you will find yourself with 2 Cutthroats. They will inform you that Maestro is stirring things up and that he set a bounty on a few troublemakers. That will be your first fight. Storm boss named Chomper McGill has 7k+ health and his ice Minion has around 2k+ health. Watch out because he may cast a storm Efreet upon you, which leaves -90 accuracy mantle.
Your second fight will be against 2 Fire Red Claw Thug. It’s a mob fight and they each have 2890 health. You will have the assistance from Boochbeard (giving you 15 critical) and Mr. Gaundry (giving you 15 incoming heal). After you defeat them you will face balance boss Buster Crab and his fire minion at Red Claw Gang’s Beach Cave Hideout.Boss has 13880 health and his minion 2890 health.
Ahoy me mates, oops this is Wizard101 but here we have 2 heroes from the Pirate101 world. Boochbeard and Mr. Gaundry in the flesh. They have been captured by Red Claws so you have to fight your way to get them out. Again, the mob fight against fire mobs, each has 2890 health.
After you defeat the mobs, you go up on the ship deck just to find Maestro talking to Deacon (one of the most nefarious villains of the Pirate world). Maestro is telling him that he has captured Boochbeard and Mr. Gaundry and that Deacon should deal with them, because these two will save an orphan pirate in the future. That orphan child will set a whole chain of events that will set Deacon to his own doom. Your last battle here is against Armada officers. Their boss is storm, Custos Decimus, and has 7360 health and is followed by 3 balance Armada Marines (minions) with 1820 health, each.
You saved Boochbeard and Mr. Gaundry which after the battle is over are going on their way to search for the pirate orphan.

The final Avalon Box fight is against The Maestro (Rank 12 Fire Boss, 20,070 HP) and Sylvia Drake (Rank 12 Fire Boss, 14,870 HP). They have two Balance helpers, at 4,220 HP.

**Currently, friends can port in during your visit either the first or second time with Laszlo. If porting in the first visit, the porter can still pick up the Drake’s assistance. If porting in the second visit to Laszlo, you will be void of Drake assistance. Also note, unless you are on a quest where you must enter or pass through Laszlo’s room, the door is locked. I was also able to port into the room where we battle the Dragonclaw Guard.
