Boochbeard Bundle Video!

Ahoy Pirates!

Pirate101- Kingsisle - released a new video today of the items included in the Boochbeard bundle and I have to say they look Epic! Here's the video:



Very nice? The Boochbeard bundle is a great bundle, probably the bet I've ever seen, this bundle is worth a lot more than $89.99 It offers so much for very little! Guess what my favorite item out of this video is... It's the House!! Very cool, never knew a house could have a Volcano (wizard101 me speaking) I think this is a great house anyone can enjoy and you can invite so many Pirates over! If you would like to purchase this bundle go to the link below..

I hope you purchase this great bundle to show all of the Pirates in the Spiral once the game is released!



See you around the Spiral soon!

Pirate101 Bundles now selling! (More Information)

Ahoy Pirates!



The Boochbeard and Gandry bundles are now available to buy online on the Pirate101 Website! These bundles will be selling a limited time so make sure you buy one before they aren't avaliable. You won't have a chance to get any of the items again because they will be retired forever, only those who have bought one of the bundles will have the items. Down below I labeled the things you can get with a Boochbeard Bundle and Gandry Bundle.

Boochbeard & Gandry Bundle

Boochbeard Bundle

Boochbeard Bundle

Boochbeard Bundle (female version)

Boochbeard Bundle (male version)

Boochbeard Bundle

Boochbeard Bundle 

Both bundles give you a 12 month Pirate101 Membership and one week head start. The Boochbeard Bundle costs $90 and the Gandry Bundle costs $60. If you're having trouble trying to get the Boochbeard you have a better chance asking family right? Well Pirate101 gave us a better chance to ask family for donations on your Boochbeard bundle if you're having trouble getting one (don't have enough money). You can ask friends and family to help you if you would like to get this bundle. 




If you click the link above, you can sign up for this and ask friends and family for help by sending them invitations, if you get all of the money you need for the bundle you will have to email Kingsisle and they will verify a code so you can finally receive the bundle. Good luck!


Thanks KI for adding the option, its really great that you would like to help those who can't afford it. I think its a great idea!

Beta Players (Pirate101)



Ahoy Pirates!

Pirate101 has a beta character wipe tonight (very soon) and I've enjoyed leveling on my first ever Beta character, and my first character on Pirate101. Pirate101 is a very great game and I'm sure all of you will enjoy playing it. I've tested for a month and enjoyed it even if I didn't have much time to test the game out! Here's a statement for beta characters from the one and only One-Eyed Jack!

One-Eyed Jack

Beta Pirates!

We have truly appreciated those who have helped us forge ahead with Pirate101. Many have been wondering about their status in Beta as we move closer to the launch of the game. First, rest assured, those who are currently in the Beta will automatically be included in the week of early access, regardless of whether you purchase the Boochbeard bundle or not. Second, everyone who has actively played (meaning a player must have logged in and played during beta) in Beta will also be receiving a soon announced Beta gift (rest assured, it will be pretty epic). Third, we hope you have enjoyed your free play time in Beta in advance or hundreds of thousands of other interested players and had a lot of fun and enjoyment while simultaneously providing Kingsisle with feedback. Many entered, and few were chosen. Hopefully the Beta experience has been your finest reward, as it has been ours to work with such an outstanding community.

Thank you again for your support and happy sailing!

Thanks for choosing everyone in Beta, I out of I'm sure many enjoyed Beta. I can't wait until October because I want to see everyone else's response to this great game. This was the first time I've been in Beta for any game, I've enjoyed testing this game on Edward my buccaneer character and can't wait to try my new character (privateer) when the game is released to the public. I promise 99.9% of you will love this game, the other .1% will like it, I hope! I enjoyed Beta, and I can't wait to see the new build on the game!


See you around the Spiral, and I hope I see you around the Spiral too Kingsisle! :)

Pirate101 Release Announced

Ahoy Pirates!

Pirate101's Release was finally announced today! Kingsisle plans to release Pirate101 in early October! Are you ready to start your Pirate101 adventures? Well you can start them early. A week earlier than anyone else. You can if you're in Beta or if you buy one of the new cards. They look like very nice cards too! Here they are and information about them:

Pirate101 Flagship Bundle

Boochbeard Bundle:
  • 12 Month Pirate101 Membership
  • One week head start Prior to Official Launch
  • Scarakeet Pet
  • Castaway's Cove House
  • Parrot Mount (the one on the side)
  • Cat Pirate's Companion
  • Ruby Slicer Weapon 
  • Automatic Inclusion in Closed Beta

This cost $89.99 online. If you always wanted to
be in included in Beta you really should get this 
right now! Your membership will begin right after 
the 1 week head start. It's available for a limited time! 




Gandry Bundle:

  • 12 Month Pirate101 Membership
  • One Week Head start Prior to Official Launch 
  • Scarakeet Pet
This bundle costs $59.99 online!

Here's a few important questions Kingsisle had on Pirate101's website that I think should be added on this post. I hope you don't mind the long post! :)


What is closed beta and how long does it last?

- Closed Beta is a testing period where a limited number of players can play Pirate101 and provide game feedback. It will last up until the one week Head Start, so players who buy the Boochbeard Bundle early on will have more of a chance to play Closed Beta than players who wait. At the end of closed Beta, Pirate characters will be wiped one last time. Once the one week head start begins, all characters are saved.

What is the one week head start?

- When the Pirate101 game launches, Beta players and people who bought the Boochbeard or Gauntry will get a one week head start on the game. The rest of the public will have to wait until the one week head start is over, and then Pirate101 will be available to everyone. This one week head start gives players to get a chance to quest and progress in the game before everyone else.

Can I get these items without Purchasing a bundle?

- No, these items will only be available with the purchase of the Boochbeard or Gandry bundle. These will be permanently retired when these exclusive bundles are no longer available. This is the only way to ever get the Scarakeet pet, Castaway's Cove, Parrot Mount, Cat Pirate companion, Dread Pirate's outfit, and the Ruby Slicer Weapon.

More questions answered here:


I love how they released two new packs on Pirate101, remember it starts September 19th and it is available for a limited time. Everyone should try to get these if their interested trying the one week head start or get into Beta. You will love Pirate101, its a great game! Take my word, this pet is not available in the Spiral. You'll notice someone have this pet though, maybe. Buy the pack if you have money to, remember its only available for credit card! Buy the pack on September 19th or buy it before its gone! 



See you around the Spiral soon!

Pirate101 Mooshu

Ahoy!

Pirate101 released images of Mooshu, not Wizard101 Mooshu, Pirate101 Mooshu! I can't believe the graphics in this Mooshu, Kingsisle has once again made a game with great graphics. Here are a few of my favorite pictures! 





This Mooshu looks very peaceful, I think my life Wizard might need a vacation here sometime if its okay for Wizards to transition over to Pirate101 :D I have no doubt Mooshu is going to be the same in a way as the Mooshu in Pirate101 with the enemies. What do you think Pirate101's Mooshu is going to be like, the same? Different? Peaceful for Life Wizards? :) Comment below and tell me your thoughts about Pirate101's Mooshu! Here's more information about Mooshu on Pirate101's website..


See you around the Spiral!

Drop Down Menu!

Hello!

I made a new feature on my blog with the help of Autumn Dreamwalker called the drop down menu or list. This will help you get to information faster, I might add more information to the pages or another page of more information for this on each Wizard101, Pirate101 and Blog Posts.. There might be a bug on it when you scroll through one list and try to scroll through another, I will try my best to get that fixed until then refresh the page if you want to go through the other drop down menus. Enjoy! :)



See you around the Spiral!

WCP

Hi there,

Well it's time for me to make a post about WCP. No I'm not announcing it, I'm saying that this is no longer a group. It was created last year, and then stopped because we didn't see the rules about it that Kingsisle had about groups on the game. Sorry Kingsisle! Anyways, I made a post to anyone that still thinks this group is up, it isn't. I don't want to see you get reported or possibly banned of you're thinking this is still going on. It's a really old thing and we really need to put it all behind us. I'm really glad to see Kingsisle added hm's though. This should help a lot! Please don't get in trouble thinking this group is still going on though! If you're doing it for yourself you should still stop, it's against the rules, it took me awhile to understand that but this year (now) I finally do. Time to end this post! It's going to be a little different...


I'm sorry to anyone who had trouble with this group. That includes Kingsisle, Kevin Battleblood, wizards in the commons and anyone else that had trouble with it. I don't mean that the people were trouble, I mean the strong steps you told us to stop and well I didn't. I know this is really old news but I felt like I should get this out to public. I'm very sorry for all of the trouble last year, here's to a great year(s) in the Spiral! :)



See you around the Spiral!

Hall Monitors (HM)

Hello Wizards!

I noticed that there are finally hall monitors on Wizard101! You may think I'm excited about this but the truth is I'm not. I'm not excited because people could behave the way they should without Hall Monitors on the game. I am glad Kingsisle finally did send them in though. They were needed for so long! I'm going to give a a few reasons why they were probably added to the game..


Bad Language- 
This was probably the main reason Hall Monitors were added to the game. If you walked through the commons for a few seconds to get to the bazaar on an average... lets say Monday, you will noticed that when you open your chat box there's a lot of bad language that people are using in your chat box! Remember you only went to the bazaar.

Bullying-
This may be the second reason but its also a huge reason. Along with bad language in a chat box is bullying. One time I had to go back to the commons because I noticed that someone was being very mean to someone and I told that person to stop. This was in January of 2011, probably when things started getting worse in the commons.


How can it change?

That's simple! Don't use bad language and stop bullying, we don't know how long HM's will be here, they may be here quite some time. We can show them that we do know how to behave in the commons though even if they are, not only the commons but everywhere on the game. Its not that difficult. I hate to bring up bad news from last year but we created WCP to try to help and didn't know that it was against the rules in any way, I had my report option taken away because of that. You may think I might be mad at KI because of that but I'm not at all! That would be silly, I'm glad they told me in that way instead of a ban though, or there wouldn't even be a post right now. The HM are not like that group, they are people who were selected as HM, and they will help Kingsisle with the game. They aren't going around reporting everyone they see! They are reporting those who are not following rules. Everyone has to follow rules, in life and on the game, if you try to you'll see how much better it is.


Don't act like someone you're not..

This is very important, if you're in the commons don't go there to act like Kingsisle OR a HM. Kingsisle knows who their employees and helpers are, they won't let you do that. You may be banned for acting like a Kingsisle employee, right now I don't know about the HM's but that might be the same thing in my words.


What do we need to change?

Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Self Control.

Let's make the game better with those things! Yelling at the HM's about them being there won't work, lets think of the reason on how they arrived? Lets try to change the game one gnome at a time!



Comment below and tell me if you think about KI having Hall Monitors!

That's my favorite!

Hello there!

Today I wanted to make a short post to ask you something, this may be very important sometime later! What's your favorite feature on Wizard101? If you're a Beta player on Pirate101, whats your favorite feature on there? I'll tell you mine now!


My favorite feature on wizard101 is the friends and pet feature! I'm very glad they added that to wizard101 because wizard101 would be different without friends and the pets help a lot I don't know if I would like that! Would you?

On Pirate101 my favorite feature is the friends and companions. Similar to wizard101 with friends, the only thing different from pets and companions is that companions help you a lot more through the entire game!


What's your favorite feature? Maybe one day KI will read this post and they'll see what we like about the great games they have created! Comment below!



See you in the Spiral,
