The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Spell Casting



Once you complete the Book Of Spells Quest the time limit for this hobby will start straight away, to begin this hobby you need to buy the magic wand podium from the promotions r us store or the sorcerous supplies store for S5,000 and place it in one of your sims houses:

I cannot place the magic wand podium, it says its locked/ limited item, what do I do? You will have this problem if you try and place it from the new items tab, look in your inventory instead to be able to place the magic wand podium in one of your sims houses.

If you complete this hobby in the 7 day time limit you will unlock the imperial barn owl:

20141030-153014.jpgYour teen or adult sim needs to click on the magic wand podium and select one of the options:

  • Quick Spell- 2 hours 30 minutes
  • Spell Casting Session- 8 hours 30 minutes

NOTE: the first time you complete this hobby you can only buy one magic wand podium so only one sim can complete this hobby but you can send another sim to a neighbours town to complete this hobby (if they have a magic wand podium) after the first time as many sims as you want can complete this hobby as you can buy as many magic wand podiums as you want

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the spell casting collectibles. Every time your sims complete one of the options above their spell casting hobby skill level up percentage will increase, once they reach 100% they will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the spell casting collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage for each option:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL 2 hour 30 minutes 8 hours 30 minutes
1-2 50% 169%
2-3 25% 84%
3-4 12% 42%
4-5 10% 33%
5-6 8% 28%

NOTE: it says 169% but you will start from 0% at level 2

The next table shows you for each level what spell casting collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 Aspiring Illusionist Tasteless Apple and Odious Toadstool are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Illusionist Clouded Crystal and Strange Toadstool are now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Aspiring Magician Common Apple and Blind Eye are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Magician Animal Eye and Jade Crystal are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Aspiring Wizard Carnelian Crystal is now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 Wizard Luminous Toadstool, Beholder Eye and Golden Apple are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!


NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby  (and they can do the shortest option to try and find the collectibles quicker!)

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed spell casting collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

You will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

If you complete this hobby in the time limit you will unlock the Imperial Barn Owl, which can be found in the Sorcerous supplies store and pet section of the home store and costs 15LPs. Disappointingly it is just like a wall decoration, I was hoping it would fly around the house!


The rewards for completing this collection are the broomstick flying hobby and 5 LPs:

  • The first time you complete this collection you unlock the broomstick flying hobby (even if you don’t manage to complete in the time limit) again this is a time limited hobby and the time limit will begin as soon as you complete the spell casting hobby
  • From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 5LPs
