Transformations - Diego Doodle

Monstrology Rewards

Monstrology was launched in Wizard101 in the April 2017 Spring update and has ever since been a wonderful addition to the game. Unfortunately, a lot of players don’t share the same opinion. After a quick look at the game and/or social media sites related to Wizard101, I could conclude that a huge factor were the rewards.

Let’s take a quick look at the rewards…

Summon Monster Treasure Cards

It’s extremely fun and useful seeing enemy creatures on your side of the circle for a change and them helping you quest solo. However, getting animus to make the treasure cards can be time consuming considering that when you summon them you’re only doing it for the one battle.

Expel Monster Treasure Cards

Surely the least used out of the three, Expel Monster TC is limited to minions only. While this is reasonable, it feels less useful than the other options.

House Guests

Nothing wrong with this idea. I’m sure that decorators everywhere can back me up here. House guests offer a lot of possibilities for housing especially now that castle magic has hit the Spiral.

Additionally, we have the Monstrodome. As great of a feature as it is, the rewards it offers are limited. Mostly, you will get low rank pet snacks and reagents, not to mention gold! Finally, we have some unresolved bugs that restrict us from collecting them all. I’m not suggesting some sort of system overhaul, but changes can indeed be made.

A 4th reward type… Transformations!

Our very own misthead happened to point out a (in my opinion) very brilliant idea – make transformations a reward for Monstrology! For a long time, there have been multiple requests by players to introduce more transformations in the Crown Shop. What if instead of them being in the Crown Shop, they could be a reward from Monstrology? This would bring tons of new transformations in addition to those that are already available in game.

This reward would work just like the other rewards: you gather animus from a creature and create the transformation of them. I am going to leave the duration and other technicalities to Kingsisle, but it would be more than amazing if the transformations lasted longer than 1 hour (especially if you’re going after Malistaire). Only one question left to answer now, which creature will you transform into first?

With his main focus in Wizard101 PvE, you will find Cody knee deep fighting one of the Spiral's major bosses with an army of wizards at his disposal. Proficient in quite a few other areas of the game such as gardening, fishing, and most of all monstrology. Why monstrology? He chases after every single creature out there and catalogs them for all to see!


  • As a transformation lover I really like this idea. Especially nowadays where the only way to get the gold transformations is from Nosferabbit’s dungeon (Mysterious Cave) due to KI changing the Crowns Shop ones to Crowns only due to PvP abuse, this would open up the door for more ways for players to express themselves.

    That said given how niche Transformations already were & the logistics involved I doubt KI would ever do this, but if they did then perhaps the animus cost could be half of the TCs or Expels. Lasting longer than 1 hour would also be needed, as what’s the point in farming for 5+hrs for only 1 of fun?

  • My all time favorite character from Wiz, Rattlebones!

  • I have an question for monstrology, and I would love it if you would make a page on it. Which summon animus treasure cards would be best for different level wizards(e.g lvl 10,20,40, etc)? And also, which animus minions are best for each school?

    • Hi Karan, considering there are currently 700+ extractable creatures with monstrology a list like that might be a tad beyond me. However, I’m currently doing an article series ‘Monstrology Tips’ highlighting such creatures.
      I already published a couple, but I have more incoming. Keep an eye out 😉
