Wizard 101 Cheats :
Glitch - Glitch: Freeze a spell
by Unregistered Dec 05, 2011
Whenever you cast a spell, it has four phases. The first one is the cast phrase, in which you draw the school symbol and strike it with your wand/staff to cast it. The second is the intro phase, which includes the spell taking place (ex the intro for a ghoul spell is that the ghoul jumps out of the grave and gives a grunt). The third is the buff phase (the animation pauses and then "repeats" the intro, for example while a tempest spell is waiting for blades and traps to activate, lightning is still flashing instead of the entire spell freezing). The last is the attack phase, when the spell does the animation for its attack (ex the phoenix breathes fire opon the target).
This cheat will work only if you do not play in fullscreen. Choose "no" on the fullscreen option to play the game as a window instead of fullscreen. A spell will freeze in place and not move until you let it if you click on the little outliner bar on it (this is only tested on Windows 7). When you click the bar and hold the mouse, the game "freezes". When you are casting a spell, at each phase will change the spell in a funny way depending on what phase of the spell you freeze it in and how long you do. Here's a chart on varing a stormzilla:
If you freeze it in the casting phase, around 1 minutes later, when you let go, the stormzilla will be there, just hanging out on the battlefield doing nothing while the intro and attack files sift into place. When the sounds are done, the stormzilla will blink out. Fun note: if you hold it long enough, if your enemy casts a spell that same round, the spell that your enemy casts can blend into your spell that you froze
If you froze it in the intro stage for about 45 seconds, when you let go the stormzilla will stomp out of turn and do its attack, then blink out after. The intro sound will then run into place.
If you froze it in the buffing stage, the entire spell animation will disappear, but the attack (if it was a stormzilla, you will still see the whirlwind of lightning whirling around the target with no zilla of any kind connected to it).
And finally, if you froze it in the attack stage, nothing will happen.
- If you froze any steal health attacks in the casting phase, the ghoul, vampire, wraith, scarecrow, Dr. Von's monster, etc will be attacking YOU instead of the monster, or at least the animation does. Don't worry, it's just a glitch, you didn't take any damage, your opponent did.
- If you have polymorphed youself, if you freeze youself at the casting phase when you draw the moon symbol, you may appear "standing". Try it, but as a tip, this does not work well if you go first in a combat.
