Sorceress’ Guide to the Magic – Day 6

Posted by Ashley Rae on April 1, 2012

The beautiful spell-caster, Ashley, is back with the daily Sorcerers of The Magic Kingdom update

Six days in and we now have 38/70 unique cards.  I’ve yet to see cards numbered 61+ in person.  I’m now fighting to get a look at people’s binders.  Yes, binders. We’ve seen many homemade books for fanatics to carry around their cards.  Realistically, if we could take a minute to go to Target, we would have some cardholders as well, but we’re not rushing.

  • The Day’s Magic Lesson…

First, there is a definite end to a level.  Unfortunately, I beat that level as number five in my round.  So now I’m backtracking.  Not sure what makes this occur.  In line, we were told by a person that was in the Testing Phase, that he was able to level up early because of it, while others in line said they were just directed to their next stop.

I heard rumors that a level up would lead to more cards.  Level 2 = 7 Cards; Level 3 = 12 Cards.  I was able to debunk the rumor and a player only receives five cards with each increase.

Apparently if you level up at the Fire House, they will ring the bell for you.

Today Jeremy took the time to battle Ursula on his Key Card, while I fought all of the Villains in Fantasyland and Yzma in Adventureland.  This solidified that Frontierland has two missions; Adventureland and Fantasyland have three missions, while Main Street USA has one battle.  This might explain the congestion in Fantasyland and Adventureland.

Finally, we took on trading cards today.  I wanted to wait it out and see how we did on our own after 70 cards were collected, but trading just seemed so much fun.  We broke the ice with a young man who had some doubles. I traded him a Mickey’s Apprentice Card (Rare) cards for a Blue Fairy Card (Common).  Another serious player actually traded me for anything I needed which grew us three new cards.  We increased our collection by 10 unique cards by trading, and the addition of some from a graciously donated Eyes and Ears Magazine.

Everyone has been very friendly in dealing with the game so far.  Day Guests are quick to notice the long lines and inquire about the game, everyone will direct you to your next portal, and trading occurs in the lines to pass the time.  The biggest disappointment is noticing semi-costumed Cast Members in line, complaining about their day.  A novice might not be aware, but the black pants and black shoes are a dead giveaway.  I’m hoping the park will soon crack down on this.
