Yes it will be, you can choose to start it whenever you like

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 potion brewing 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. Your posts really help. Please keep doing them. The reason why I am commenting this is because at the begining when I started playing sims free play I didn’t really know how to play. And now I am almost a expert. But I will never be as good as you. Right now I am on level 12. How do we add neighbors? ‘Couse my brother plays sims free play too and I want to have him as a neighbor. And could you only add neighbors if your on facebook. ‘Couse I am not on facebook and I thought I saw that one of your posts said that you can only do it if your on facebook. But I am not sure. Anyway, keep posting. It dose really help. XOXOXOXOX♥♡♥♡♥☆♡☆☆♡☆♡★★☆♡☆★♥★★♥

  2. Hey, once you’re finished with the hobby can you post if there’s any objects in the wizard’s cottage that are not available on the furniture pack and which ones are those? I unlocked the cottage but I’m not sure if can be bothered to build it since it’s pretty expensive for me, might just design one by myself if I’m not missing out on any cool furniture.

  3. Is this quest a Discovery Quest? If I’m not mistaken, The Book of Spells is a Discovery Quest. You mentioned this one couldn’t be done until The Book of Spells had been done. So, I just wanted to check on that so I knew which quests couldn’t overlap each other, for I also know Discovery Quests can’t. Thanks again for your blog, it is VERY helpfull!!

  4. Hi. Love the blog. I’m on high five the wizard and I’m at the cottage but he’s not there. I’ve tried leaving and going back. Still nothing. Any suggestions?

    • If he isn’t at the cottage try looking around simtown for him, a player told me they found him at one of their houses and he left so they returned to the cottage and he was finally there, there isn’t much else you can do really apart from go looking for him, sorry!

  5. So I made it to the Wizards cottage and he isn’t there. Do you have any suggestions for me or something to do to make him appear?

  6. Hi!
    I have a problem…I need to high five the wizard, but there is no wizard. I can’t find him. Do you have any ideas what to do?

  7. Hiya, great website I use it for every quest 🙂 can you complete the saved by the spell quest within the time limit or will we need lots of lps x thanks 🙂

  8. Hey there!

    So I’ve completed the saved by the spell quest except for high fiving the wizard. When I sent my sim to the wizard’s cottage, the wizard wasn’t there. I’ve searched elsewhere online and see that other people have this issue, too, but I haven’t been able to find an answer. I figured if anyone can figure it out, it would be you!

    Thanks so much for your blog!

  9. Hi, first of all, I love your blog and appreciate what you do! This blog has been so useful so I thank you. Well, with this particular quest I have an issue. In the part where I have to High Five the Wizard, I just can’t find him. He is no where in his cottage, nor the park, nor anywhere. Do you know anything about this? I’ve read other comments about this but no solution…

    Thanks.

  10. Love your guides! Sorry i didn’t say so until i had a question.

    I’m at the point to high five the wizard but he’s missing. I’ve searched every inch of the cottage and he’s just not there. I tried using an adult and senior sim. I closed the game and opened it again, left the cottage and returned and still no wizard. Any suggestions?

    • Thanks!

  11. Hey,

    I’ve just started this quest. I’ve spoken to the wizard and the option to examine the crystal ball has popped up which I clicked. Every time I do though it throws me out the game and stops all the other activities my other sims are doing!!! Which is really annoying because some were half way through tasks and now I have to start again! Do you know what I should do? I’ve restarted the game and my phone!

    It’s eating into my time limit!! And I want the Wizards house aggghhhh

    Any help would be really appreciated! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog! It’s so helpful!

    • If he isn’t at the cottage try looking around simtown for him, a player told me they found him at one of their houses and he left so they returned to the cottage and he was finally there, there isn’t much else you can do really apart from go looking for him, sorry!

  12. I need to high five the wizard, but he isn’t in his cottage. Any ideas? I’ve checked all my lots and the cottage, but he has vanished!

    • A player told me they found him at one of their houses and he left so they returned to the cottage and he was finally there, there isn’t much else you can do really apart from keep looking for him, sorry!

  13. I completed almost all of the Saved by the Spell, The last step I have to high five the wizard. As indicated, I went to the cottage but there is no wizard to high five. I have looked all over for him. Any suggestions or is it a glitch?

    • A player told me they found him at one of their houses and he left so they returned to the cottage and he was finally there, there isn’t much else you can do really apart from keep looking for him, sorry!

  14. I’ve had the wizard’s cottage for a few hours now, and I really like it. It’s very rustic. I did have to expand some of the rooms. I expanded the bathroom to connect it with the rest of the house. I wasn’t really feeling the whole “outhouse” thing. I also added a corridor and a transition room to link the library to the rest of the house. I generally prefer all sections of the house to be connected. It has worked out nicely as the transition room gave me space to put a magical bookcase without disturbing the general setup of the library. I did expand the library though so that I could fit a magic wand podium. Has anyone noticed that it’s always daylight at the cottage? It’s currently night time, but the cottage is still magically bathed in daylight. I wonder if that’s permanent.

  15. I’m at the very end of this quest, where you use the crystal ball to return to the cottage and high five the wizard, only the wizard is nowhere to be found. I’ve searched my whole town, leaving the cottage and coming back, restarting the app, etc. Any idea why he’s not there or where he may be? Did you have a similar issue?

    • I didn’t have this problem but lots of people have, a player told me they found him at one of their houses and he left so they returned to the cottage and he was finally there, there isn’t much else you can do really apart from keep looking for him, sorry!

  16. I can’t find the wizard to high five. I spent 12 lP and The wizard is not in the cottage! I turned off game and he still is not there. I’m mad. 40 minutes and I’ll loose.

    • If he isn’t at the cottage try looking around simtown for him, a player told me they found him at one of their houses and he left so they returned to the cottage and he was finally there, there isn’t much else you can do really apart from go looking for him, sorry!

  17. Im sad i cant finish it before the limit because that crystall ball bug 😦

    They just fix it after the time is over 😦

    I hope they can repeat that time again because there is a lot of people got bug like that too and its not their device fault…

  18. For anyone whose wizard is missing for the “high five the wizard task” – I FINALLY FOUND HIM! In an act of desperation I just went to every house and other building, and I found him at the castle! As soon as I found him, he started walking home/leaving. Then I had a sim go to the park, and crystal ball to the cottage and there he was! I just read someone else found him in one of their houses, so it might be random. Just look around!

  19. Hi, I did not know if you replied on my other two comments on different quests, I do not know where to check whether you replied or not. 🙂 I hope I can received notifications.

  20. Heya x I love your website so much!
    I got up to the last task (high five the wizard) on the new quest ‘saved by the spell’ but I can’t find the wizard anyway! I went to his cottage and he was not there, I also checked the park,some of the houses and the sim tracker to see if I could control where he is but no. So annoying 😦 I have tried closing the app and re-opening it but again, no! Also because of this problem I didn’t complete it within the special timeframe. Please, any suggestions? Thank you x

    • Thanks!

Just curious, what is you town value, because in your picture, it showed the houses being really cheap, but then all my houses are at LEAST 400,000 simoleons but I’m hoping you’ll tell me that the cottage is just cheaper, because tbh, I spend all my money really fast and don’t have any lol-Thank you!!!!

  26. Hey!
    I’ve got yet another problem!! Yay! How lucky can I get! -_-
    Anyways…
    I’m just confused…I build the wizards cottage but it doesn’the look like the pictures you have here…or the preview before building it…well…it does have the house the trees and all that good stuff…the ONLY difference is the outside grounds and the fence surrounding it…it looks clean..it doesn’t have that fall look…I’m not sure I’m explaining correctly…sorry…the wall surrounding the cottage is the wall from the Latin villa and I don’t like it…why did it look like this!? (Sad sad)
    I’m sorry for bothering you with this…is there something I should do??? What’s the website for contacting EA??

    Thanks so much for your blogs! It helps a lot! CHEERS!! °\^-^/°

  27. Hey everyone,
    I’ve recently built my wizard cottage in mysterious island and the place seems to have a glitch or something because it doesn’t have the wizard theme…it’s the Latin villa theme….

    Hi Liz4ever,

    The Mysterious Island has a default theme which overrides the Wizards Cottage theme when it is built on the Island.

    Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Regards,

    Nick

  28. Please help me. I’m on this quest but every time i click on the cristal ball to examine it, it kicks me out the game. As your comment above you say that i might need to contact EA. So, do you have any sugestions how do i contact EA. Thank you. By the way your blog is awesome

  29. I built the wizards cottage on a premium residence. Buy when I viewed it before building it, it had a special fence/boundary that no other house has and some fallen leaves around it..but now that I have build it, it has the same fence/boundary as any other premium residence house has and the leaves are missing too….so I viewed the house again for building on another lot and it agains shows the new fence and the leaves…..
    Is anyone else facing this problem or is it just me?? My town value is very high so I spent a lot of money to build it and it also took 3 days. And now im very sad about it bc I wanted it perfect… 😦

  30. Hi,
    I’m up to the bit where i need to get 2 sims to sit at the dinner table in the park..but theres no option to click on the table and press sit.. Am i doing something wrong as the option is just not showing up.
    Thanks in advance!

    • Hopefully this solution from a player works: ‘I finally figured out that you have to have your sims sit down rather quickly, before the other characters sit down. I exited and then went back to the park. When the table is empty click to sit down and then click for the other sim to “join in”. Be fast because once the characters start sitting, neither sim will be able to sit down’

  31. Hi! I have a problem with this quest and hope you can help me. I can’t sit at the diner table in park. I tap on chair and he denies to sit.

  32. I’m supposed to have two sims sit at the table in the park, but they won’t sit down! Help!!! I would love to finish this but nothing seems to fix the problem.

  33. Hi so at the part where you sit down at the dining table, with the rabbit and teddy and queen… it wont let me sit… when i click on it it just pops up with the stop sign in her head 😦 any ideas??

  34. Good Day, I’m having a problem with “Have two sims sit at the dinner table- 5 minutes (in park)” it wont let me select tje option when I press on the table or chair in the park. There’s already 4 Sim characters eating there including the teddy bear, what should I do?’

  35. I had the same problem at The table in the park. I finally figured out that you have to have your sims sit down rather quickly, before the other characters sit down. I exited and then went back to the park. When the table is empty click to sit down and then click for the other sim to “join in”. Be fast because once the characters start sitting, neither sim will be able to sit down. I hope this helps as I know how frustrating it was when it happened to me!
