Usually I'm not a fan of turn based combat, but I enjoyed Wizard101's turn based card style combat system which has players selecting cards from their 'deck' to cast on opponents. Battles are engaged via dueling circle which supports up to 4v4 battles, these circles make it easy for other players to help you in battle or for you to avoid battles entirely. The great thing about Wizard101's combat is that loot and experience is automatically distributed after the fight, offering a fair system.
Houses are another fun feature of Wizard101, players start off with a dorm room inside the Wizard City School (Ravenwood) and are able to decorate it with furniture, ornaments, carpets and trophies that are dropped from monsters in battle. Players can eventually upgrade to a modest castle and then a luxury castle. A large amount of housing options are available purchase with gold but the best are reserved for Crowns.
Pets are also available in Wizard101 which can either be purchased from the various stores located in the Spiral, from the Crown Shop or dropped by monsters. Pets originally start off as eggs and eventually hatch (time differs between eggs) from here the player can train them through various stages. Powerful pets can become a true ally on the battlefield; healing and attacking on the wizard's behalf.
