12 Day of Autumn- One-Eyed Shindig Recap

Ahoy Pirates,

Its been awhile since I made a Pirate101 Post, mostly because I've been catching up on everything on the game. I decided to take a break from catching up and get back to my normal schedule of posting and attending events since I'm pretty close to finishing leveling my Witchdoctor's companions. :D Anyways, this week I attended one of Autumn Walker's 12 Day of Autumn events, the One-Eyed Shindig! There were so many Pirates there in Skull Island and I had a lot of fun. :) I believe Autumn was asking a bunch of Trivia questions and also had a Fashion Contest! If you were there, you would have noticed me standing with everything that was participating in the Fashion Contest. LOL, no I didn't enter since I'm already a Pirate101 Fansite Owner, I thought everyone was taking pictures so I ran over there to stand with everyone. :D When I found out it was a Fashion Contest, I was embarrassed and it was awkward. :P That changed when Autumn invited everyone to her Witchdoctor House for PvP. I believe this event was a lot of fun and I can't wait for her other events. If you're interested, visit her blog for more information on Contests and Events by clicking HERE.

Rhino Party 2013 Recap!

Hello Wizards!

I had a chance to go to another great event this week. Frost Caller hosted a Rhino Party for World Rhino Day! This was a fun day for the community to get together to celebrate World Rhino Day on Wizard101. :D I believe it was a great turnout since so many people were there (as you see below in the pictures). You'll see that quite a few of us has lions and panthers too since we didn't have a Rhino. Thank you Frost Caller for this great event and I can't wait until your next event, I can already tell you're great at throwing parties. :)

A picture with David (Frost Caller), Yeah I didn't know who he was at first! 
Crazy amount of people... no lions and tigers and rhinos... oh my + panthers!

Saving Free Ranger- Pt. 2!

Howdy Pirates!

Its been awhile since I last made an Edward Cringle post and I wanted to last week but real life got in the way and I had to take a little bit of a break. I'm back now and I am ready to blog again. :D On my last post I left off on trying to save Free Ranger, a masked bird who has dark magic wounds. I have to gather Raw Mandrake from the Bison Burial Ground, Bloodbat Teeth from the Black Storm Tribe and Sun Pollen that floats around the Santo Pollo Skyway to save Free Ranger. Here's what I did today.. :D

Objective #1: 
Gather Mandrake Root From Black Storm Raiders *Defeat 5*

I only had to fight the Black Storm Raiders a couple of times so it wasn't too hard getting the Mandrake Root from them. This was a pretty easy fight and I along with my companions didn't die. I don't think this was a difficult fight and I hope that rest of Cool Ranch will be easy just like this fight. I know, funny! I'm pretty sure it'll get difficult as I progress. :D Next objective!! Time to collect Bloodbad Teeth from Black Storm Ships, you think it was difficult? Keep reading!

Objective #2:
Gather Bloodbat Teeth from Black Storm Ships *Defeat 5*


Once again.. Easy!! This part wasn't difficult at all, well you probably think it was difficult by looking at the picture but it really wasn't difficult at all. If you ever lose connection during a battle like this it'll be a difficult quest. A week ago I was leveling with Autumn on the same exact quest on our Musketeers and y'all know my luck.. I lost connection! Losing connection in the skyways isn't good at all, the good thing is I didn't lose connection on my Swashbuckler so I made it through! Time to collect some sun pollen in Santo Pollo Skyway..

Objective #3:
Collect Sun Pollen in Santo Pollo Skyway *Collect 10*

Oh no! Okay I believe these banditoad ships are really after me and trying to defeat me. I know that sounds silly since we already have a lot of enemies on the game but really.. These banditoads are always trying to attack me whether I'm on this character or even my musketeer! Okay.. I'm just having bad memories LOL. Anyways.. after I collected all 10 of the Sun Pollen it was time to talk to Dancing Stars to save Free Ranger!

Objective #4:
Saving Free Ranger from Doom!

I finally sailed back to Bison Village and delivered all of the items Dancing Stars asked for and saved Free Ranger from Black Magic Doom! I believe I get an award now right? No? Okay... Well... I hope you enjoyed this post and my new way of blogging. IF you like the new way of blogging just click on the Arrrsome Reaction below (above the comments). Thank you for reading and I'll see y'all next time!

Traveling back home (Life Update)

Hello Everyone!

How are you doing? I've missed all of you, I know its only been a few days I haven't made a blog post but even a few days makes me feel like its been weeks! I am hoping I'll be back soon. I didn't tell you all this but my dad did great on the surgery and he should be out of the hospital in a few days! I am happy he was okay during surgery. I'm hoping I can get back on schedule soon and make my posts the way I want to. The best thing about a schedule is that you don't have to worry about not getting something done and that's why I always try to stay on a schedule when blogging. :P Talking about schedules... I better start blogging what I was planning on blogging about before I get ahead of myself and make this post longer than any post I've ever made. :P I am not planning on making any posts for a couple of days but rest assured.. I am not quitting! I plan to make plenty of posts once I'm back and everything in real life is taken care of. So don't worry about me I'll be back soon and out of the other spiral and into this one soon. :D

I was on Wizard101 today!

Hello Wizards,

I know I told you I was taking a break but I had a little time to log onto Wizard101 today to attend Ian Stormstaff's Mount Parade and Kelsey Fireheart's Party! I have been behind lately and I don't like being behind on anything but.. I found out that its been a year since Stars of the Spiral has been Wizard101 Official and that's why Kelsey was having an awesome party! I thought it was fun and I congratulate Stars of the Spiral again, Kelsey Fireheart and all staff, for doing a great job on the site/blog. :)



Not only did I attend Kelsey's party, I also attended Ian Stormstaff's Wizard Unite Mount parade which was a lot of fun also. :D I didn't take many pictures of the event since I was busy flying around my dragon mount (the event was based on dragons and celebrating Wizard101's 5th Birthday). Thank you Ian for having this event, it was a lot of fun! I'm happy there's so many great community events on both games that everyone can enjoy and can't wait until the next event. :D I'll see ya'll around the Spiral soon.

Taking a Break..

Hello Pirates and Wizards,

I usually don't make a post to wizards and pirates but I needed to make one today.. I have a little bit of bad news... I can't blog until next week or later for both wizards and pirates even though I have blog posts that I still haven't made that I really wanted to make today but I might make the posts in a few days. You're probably wondering how I have to take a break since I usually don't have long breaks away from Wizard101, Pirate101 or my blog.. Well I've had issues in real life such as getting sick and that's weighing down on me and I feel like I can't log onto the games or make a post. I've also had news that my dad has to have surgery tomorrow and that means I need to help my mom take care of my dad for a bit so I wouldn't have as much time for the games not even now since I'm sick. I'm sorry about this being last notice but it was last notice to me also. I wasn't expecting to get sick or hear news about my dad having surgery. I promise I'm not quitting the games or anything because I have huge plans for this blog and.. I LOVE PIRATE101, WIZARD101 AND THE COMMUNITY! :D Thank you all for understanding and I promise I'll be back when I can. If everything goes well I'll come back soon, if not I'll come back in a week. Thank you all for reading and I hope you have fun on the games. See y'all later!! x hugs x

Edward Cringle Update

Ahoy Pirates,

Its been awhile since I made an Edward Cringle blog post and that's because I know the future (questing with Autumn Walker on our Musketeers) and its a crazy future. I believe Cool Ranch is going to get very difficult for my Swashbuckler and I'm worried that my posts might get confusing when I start questing again. I know its been awhile since I made blog posts that focus on Edward Cringle and I promise I will continue making them. I need time to figure out how I'm going to make these posts and how much pictures I should include with the posts. I've been thinking about taking out a lot of pictures of dialog and just typing exactly what I did that day when questing and posting a few pictures so y'all can see my character questing through his quest a bit. I think that'll be a great way of updating my Edward Cringle posts and I believe they will be a lot better than they have been. I'm also thinking about making these posts two times a week on Monday and Fridays, I'm going to think about it though. I think if I do that it might help me a lot when questing and it won't be as confusing or so much work to make these posts as much as I can. I will make posts in a week or so again so I can decide what exactly what I'm doing. If you ready every Edward Cringle post, don't worry I'm not going to stop blogging about Edward Cringle! :D I'll see y'all next time and stay safe in the Skyways!

Wizard101 Error (Edward Lifegem's Questing)

Hello Wizards!

You're probably wondering why I haven't had any new Wizard101 blog posts in awhile... well I've had a lot of issues on Wizard101 while leveling and its becoming more frequently than it was before. I've had these errors on the game and they are getting very annoying when I try to level. I've quested through most of Avalon and I'm in the last area by the Ghost Avalon and the last dungeon. I'm not far from finishing! :D I promise when everything is okay I will blog about that and I'm sure it'll be my next main Wizard101 blog post since I'm almost done. I'm thinking about making two different posts about Ghost Avalon and the main last dungeon's name I can't remember. Anyways, KI support is doing a great job and I think I will make the blog posts soon! I just sent an email to them with all of the information that needed and I've been trying my best to provide as much detail about this situation as possible and hope its resolved soon, we'll see. :D I hope I see y'all around the spiral soon!

Edward defeats Hydra with help from Autumn!

Ahoy Pirates!

Remember when I told you I was going to post about fighting Hydra on my Witchdoctor when I finally made it to the quest? Well I made it to the Hydra yesterday and I got to defeat him with help from Autumn Walker! Before I fought hydra I had to do so many quests and didn't even realize I was actually not too close to fighting Hydra.. I earned a new snake companion and quested on a few quests before fighting Hydra. I'm not complaining though, I thought it was a lot of fun questing on Pirate101 since I really haven't quested in awhile since I've been busy. Yesterday I could finally start questing again and let me say it was a lot of fun! Thanks again Autumn for helping me. :) I was confused but Autumn and I made it through. Here's a few pictures I took during the fight with Hydra:

Autumn's El Toro critical hit! :D
Catbeard can hit any target even with his eyes closed!
RIP. I wish you wasn't mean, you would have been an awesome pet!

Edward Lifegem's name on an Egg?!

Hello Wizards,

LOOK! Edward Lifegem got his name on an Egg! This is an important blog post and you should continue reading..... Edward Lifegem got his name on an Egg, yeah he did so what does that mean? That means he got his name on an Egg so that's very important... Why is it important? Well he got his name on an Egg so that is important... What kind of Egg? I have no idea... Why? Because I quested through parts of Avalon and it happened.. What's Avalon? A Wizard101 World... What's a World? Something in the Universe. What's the universe? Something important. What's important? You figure that out when you see the picture of my name on the egg! I know you're jealous. :D Wait is that an Egg?!

Edward Lifegem gets his Gnome Pet!

Hello Wizards!

A few days ago I quested through Avalon with the help of my sister and made it to level 78! This meant I could get my gnome pet but I didn't until yesterday. The last time I had a gnome pet was on the test realm when Avalon was released which was a year ago. I'm glad to have my gnome back, I might make it my main pet after hatching and all. :)

WOOT :D
Fighting the boss that has the gnome pet plant! Thank you pet for the heal :D
Forest lord had to pause for a picture, he says hello!
Using Gnome on the boss! :P 
Time to talk to Wu! :D
:O 
Finally! :D His name is Baby Diesel for anyone wanting to know

I'm glad I have my gnome pet again, Its been awhile and I actually feel like I'm better at the game than I was about 3 months ago. I'm leveling my main character and a few of my other characters which is awesome. Just so y'all know my life character is doing great with the help of great friends and I can't wait to make another post about completing Avalon. :D Make sure to look for that post! I'll see y'all next time and thanks for reading!

Will Power Pips Change?

Hello Wizards!

Today I read a blog post from Frost Caller (which you should read before reading this post). After I read it I thought of something that went along with his post.. power pips! How many power pips can we have to cast spells? 7 Power Pips which equals 14 pips all together. What will happen when we get rank 15 or rank 16 spells to cast in the future? Well I keep thinking about what Kingsisle said when Todd Coleman resigned from Kingsisle..

.. As for Kingsisle, we have a clear roadmap of exciting world and system updates for Wizard101...



What could the system updates mean? A fix on the power pips? :D I know this post was short but it's really interesting when you think about it.. Future worlds will have stronger spells and stronger enemies. Who knows how many power pips we could have a year from now or even 10 years from now. I guess we'll have to see what happens. :D What do you think will happen with Wizard101? Will we gain power pips or will stronger spells stop at rank 10-14? Comment below and tell me what you think will happen!

Saving Free Ranger- Pt. 1

Howdy Pirates!

Its been an entire week since I last posted about my Swashbuckler, Edward Cringle. I'm back now and ready to post. :D On my last blog post (My 200th Post) I had to talk to Eagle Caller since El Toro sent me to him to learn more information about Tonka, a friend of El Toro's father. Eagle Caller told me I needed to go find Free Ranger. I had to find him on a Canoe called the Silver Stallion (I would love to have that ship as my own). I found the canoe but there were a lot of Darkmoor ships surrounding the canoe and I had to sink four of them.. It wasn't as bad as the Banditoad Ships- no I will always bring that up during a ship battle talk on a post, Lol. When completed that quest I made it to the Canoe and had to fight a boss and his minions. After all of that I finally made it to Free Ranger, he told me he needed my help and he did not look like he was feeling well..


We know that Tonka was taken hostage but now we have to save Free Ranger. When I noticed the green floating around him I knew they weren't normal wounds so I have no idea why Old Scratch had to tell me that he didn't think they were normal wounds when I already knew :P. Okay... now its time to go to Bison Village! We will save Free Ranger.


I don't know why they keep telling me that they aren't ordinary wounds.. LOOK AT IT! LOL. I think everyone can tell they aren't normal wounds, right everyone? :D Okay.. Dark Magic, I have to get Red Mandrake and Bloodbat Teeth from the Black Storm Tribe and Sun Pollen! I know you told me to hurry but I don't think my blog post could even fit all of that so I'll have to make a Part 2 post! :P I'll see y'all next time. Wish me luck getting all of these items and hopefully on my next post we can save Free Ranger. Stay safe in the Skyways! 

Just Emma: Gaming Podcast

Hi there!

I usually don't make posts like this but I decided to do this today. :D There's a new Video Game podcast called Gaming Podcast that Emma and Flint created from the Just Emma blog! I listened to their new podcast and thought it is a great podcast and its great to hear what everyone thinks of the games Wizard101 and Pirate101 and other games. Their first episode compares different video game graphics and game play. This new podcast is very interesting and they don't just talk about Pirate101 and Wizard101, they talk about other games too, so if you would like to listen to their new podcast just click on the image to the right! :D

I'm not quitting Wizard101 because...

Hello Wizards,

Today is officially Wizard101's 5th Birthday! Wizard101 is one of the best games I've ever played and I believe one of the best games. I've played Wizard101 since July 2009 and enjoyed every minute of it. I've had good times and bad times on the game but I still love the game and the community. :) Today I thought I was going to quit Wizard101 because I was very worried my account would be banned because of the person pretending to be me and KI. I decided I'm going to stay though since I have so much support from Kingsisle and the Wizard101 community. I'm sorry to everyone I made worry though, I didn't mean to make anyone upset. I was very upset of the thought of having to quit Wizard101 to save my Pirate101 account from also being banned since its all connected to the same account. I am going to stay since I have so much support, thank you all for helping me. I just want this person to stop doing this to everyone. I'm not going to quit Wizard101 because of this awesome community/game team/ friends and of course game! Now... I know this post was sad at first but I have to thank everyone in the pictures down below, everyone reading and everyone that's help me in the past and future. :) Thank you so much!

Stay away from the real Edward Lifegem! :D - Angel ice is my bodyguard
Woot :D
Happy Birthday Wizard101, here's to many more years! :D

Wizard Hall of Fame Recap

Hello Wizards!

Yesterday was the Wizard Hall of Fame and let me say it was pretty awesome! There was quite a few wizards there, I was too nervous to count though since I had to go up on stage to introduce Blake. I still had a lot of fun though! :) I thought this was a great way to get the community together to recognize all of the dedicated members of the community. Thank you for creating this Chase, Hunter and Timothy! I can't wait until next year, Wizard Hall of Fame 2014. Talking about that, I found out that Kelsey Fireheart and I out of Five are going to be inductees next year. :D I have time to prepare my speech, don't worry it won't be long. Okay before I carry on, here's a few pictures I took of the great event.. Thank you again for having this event and the after party! :D

Backstage- Tyler, your name is purple now. :D
Dancing backstage with Stephen, Kelsey and Paige! :D
A picture with the FAMOUS Ian Stormstaff/ Ninja :D 
Gifting a few wizards as Santa!
Here's what it looks like being on stage.. Awesome :D

The after party!
