  • There are two 1 star dragons- one costs 50,000, the other costs 25 SP
  • There are two 2 star dragons- one costs 250,000, the other costs 25 LP
  • There are two 3 star dragons- one costs 50 LP, the other costs 100 LP

Is the prize worth it? Yes it really is! It is unusual and cute, why wouldn’t you want one? Once you have brought a dragon it will appear at the house, near the mailbox as an egg: 20141030-150147.jpg 20141030-150153.jpg You can move it into the house, the dragon takes a day to hatch: 20141030-150231.jpg

Once it has hatched it will fly around the house, like dogs and cats it will find simoleons and LP:

A sim can interact with the dragon to increase the dragons happiness, they can praise or feed them:

You will now be able to complete the Saved by the Spell Discovery Quest


please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?
Build the sorcerous supplies store to start this quest

Does the time limit start when I click to build or once the building has complete?
Once it has finished building the quest and time limit will begin

Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can

Why can’t I do this discovery quest yet?
You cannot do more than one discovery quest at the same time, if you are currently on another one (the list can be found here) you will not be able to do this one until that one is completed

Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start building the sorcerous supplies store you don’t have to do this quest at all but if you have already started building or started this quest you need to complete it before you can move on to the next quest

I haven’t started this quest yet, will it still be available when I want to do it?
Yes it will be, you can choose to start it whenever you like

How do I unlock the door to the wand room?
Select randomly rearrange

How do I place the magic wand podium, I can’t find it!
It will be in the hobby and career items section of your inventory

Why do blue footprints appear when I try to use an item?
Blue footprints appear when your sim cannot access an item you want them to use, you need to either rotate the item or move an item that has been placed in front of it so they can use it.

How do I send my sim to the park?
Go to the park and click on the whistle next to a sim who isn’t busy on the simtracker, this post explains more about the simtracker

Everytime my sim gazes into the crystal ball it says ‘this place is too crowded’ why?
If you already have a sim at the wizards cottage you will get this message, use the simtracker to go to the sim who is already there instead of using the crystal ball

Can I do all the distract a mummy tasks at the same time?
No you can’t, you can only do them one at a time

How do I pack up the magic wand podium?
Click on it to pack up

The magic wand podium has disappeared once I’ve picked it up! How do I complete the hobby?
You will need to buy a magic wand podium from the sorcerous supplies store to complete the hobby

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
Pet dragons

I haven’t built the pet store yet, will the dragons be in there when I do?
Yes they will

What do the dragons do?
They find simoleons and LPs like dogs and cats

Is there anything in the pet section for dragons?
No, there isn’t

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?
Yes you have to finish it to unlock the spell casting hobby before you can move onto the next quest

I didn’t complete in the time limit, can I restart the quest?
No, you cannot redo quests

Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one now that you have started it, if you don’t start it you don’t have to do it

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post

This quest unlocks the spell casting hobby, does the time limit start straight away once I have completed this quest?
Yes, the time limit for the hobby starts straight away once this quest is complete, you can click no when the hobby pop up appears but this does not stop the timer going down

  1. I’m trying to get thru Book of spells quest, my game has frozen and I’ve lost valuable time on the longer quests! I’m now at the point I have 63 hr time expire but 67hr needed to finish quest…. can other sims help with 16 hr quest talk to mummy! And also at the end do we get to keep the wizards house!? Thank you!

  2. i finished this quest and bought the sky dragon, and then as soon as i placed the egg at my house, my game started freezing for several seconds at a time. i didn’t realize at first that it was only happening at that specific house, and then when i did, i decided to just ignore it and hope the next update fixed the issue. after about a month, i finally lost patience with it and put the dragon up for adoption. a waste of 250,000 simoleons honestly. i don’t know if anybody else was having this issue, but it was incredibly frustrating. by the way, i absolutely love this blog, it has saved my life countless times, thank you for all the work you put into it!

  3. I completed the quest, but didn’t do it in the time allotted. But disappointed to find that I can’t go the wizards cottage anymore. What point did I lose this access?

    Thanks thegirlwhogames!!


  4. If you didnt finish the quest in the time limit and want the dragons, SOMETIMES they appear in the
    “deals” section in the store, they cost like 124 LP, i hope i helped 😀
