CastleVille 'Mage Academy Spellcasting' Quests: Everything you need to know

Now that you've discovered the Mage Academy in CastleVille, it's time to really put your spellcasting skills to the test via a new set of "Mage Academy Spellcasting" quests. There are nine quests to complete in all, and we're here with a complete guide to finishing them off, thanks to Zynga. Let's get started!

Enchanting Explorations
  • Have 3 Bifocals
  • Expand to reveal the Mage Academy
  • Expand to find the Spells and Enchantments Wing

If you've already completed the quests in the Mage Academy Revealed series, you'll also have expanded out into the Mage Academy square, so that checkmark will be instant. As for the new Wing of the Academy, it can be reached by spending 5,000 coins and one Exploration Crystal to explore the Gloom. You'll also need to have 300 Castle Level to expand, but that shouldn't be a problem. Finally, the Bifocals can be earned by posting a general request to your news feed for help. You'll receive 2,000 coins and 40 XP for completing this first quest.

An Icy Inconvenience
  • Thaw Out the Wint
  • Collect from the Wing with a Magical Tome
  • Collect from 7 Houses

When you reach the Spells and Enchantments Wing, you'll find it covered in ice, which must be removed by collecting building materials. You'll need two Mortar, seven Coal, five Blowtorches, and two Bronze Bars to complete this first step. The Blowtorches are earned by posting another request to your news feed. The Coal can be earned by asking your friends to send it to you directly, and finally, the Mortars and Bronze Bars can be crafted in your Kingdom. Once it's thawed out, you'll need the Magical Tome to collect from the Wing. This Magical Tome requires items like Books and Wood to craft. Once you've finished these three steps, you'll receive 2,000 coins, 40 XP and a Pigasus Statue for completing this quest.

The Gloom Rat can be charmed by casting the Charm Gloom Rat Spell. This is a pink Spirit Spell that requires four Sugar, five Ogre's Belches, two Magic Flutes and five Honey to create. As for the Icy Brambles, these can be found at the base of the Academy wing, and they can be cleared with the Fireheart Spell. This is another pink Sprit option, but this one requires four Yellow Feathers, four Wool, one Hot Coal and one Gloom Wolf Hair to create. For finishing this quest, you'll receive 2,000 coins and 40 XP.

A Comatose Complication

You'll find the pet pig sleeping near the base of the Academy's Wing. It requires two Sun Staffs to wake up. A single Sun Staff can be created in the Studio using Magic Wards, four Green Feathers, three Aquamarine and five Beeswax. As for the Animal Cracker, this is another crafting project that will make one animal four times as productive as normal until you feed it. Completing this quest gives you 2,000 coins, 40 XP and a Big Energy Potion.

Arctic Aggravations

The Neverending Parchment is earned by posting a general request to your news feed.

You'll be able to gather these items through a combination of crafting, item requests to friends, and more. After you complete this quest, you'll receive 2,000 coins, 40 XP and a Professor Plume Statue.Accelerated Adulthood

When Swine Stray
  • Have 8 Phoenix Feathers
  • Craft 6 Sun Staffs
  • Craft 2 Brain Food

The Phoenix Feathers are earned by posting another general news feed post to your wall, while the Brain Food can be prepared in the Kitchen. You'll need items like butter, Barrels and Pumpkins to craft a single Brain Food, but of course, you'll need to go through the crafting process twice to finish this quest.

This meteorite contains rare materials that you can then mine from it afterwards. It requires Alchemist Powders, Eggs, Down Feathers, and Pails of Water to create. As for the Shakedown Spell, this one is under the green Nature section, and it requires you to first craft a Harvest Wind Spell before it can be created. When you have that, you'll need to combine it with worms, rocks and more to actually create the Shakedown Spell, which can be used to collect from several buildings at the same. You'll receive 2,000 coins, 40 XP and a Pigasus for completing this last quest in the series. Good luck!
