Set Sail for Marleybone and Aquila!

Ahoy Pirates,

If you haven't read my post yesterday, you should know it's official that Kingsisle is planning on releasing not one but two new worlds! They will be in the Pirate101 Test Realm soon and then in the live realm soon after that. Make sure you level your pirate through Mooshu and finish before these updates on released to the live realm! If you're in Mooshu, now's the time to do that. Here's updates from Massively and MMORPG!

Marleybone (Book 13- The Dogs of War)

The Pirate's quest for the pieces of the Map to El Dorado takes them to Marleybone, where they must track down their old friend Catbeard. Wizard101 players adventured on the streets and rooftops of Marleybone's capital city, but in Pirate101 we open up with a whole new realm of adventure! Pirates take to the midnight skies of Westminister Skyway, where they find a warzone and come face to face with the consequences of their former actions. Marleybone is at war with the evil Clockwork Armada - a war your Pirate started, and a war Marleybone is losing! To get the next piece of your Map, player Pirates must join the royal navy and help them turn the tide of War. Their quest to the Isle of Dogs, a bustling hub of industry and shipbuilding with a criminal underworld lurking in the sewers beneath; the isle of Fetch, a vacation resort now abandoned and waiting for the imminent Armada invasion, and Beachead, an armored battle station with enough firepower to destroy every city in Marleybone. Along the way they'll meet a rich cast of characters including Admiral Nelson, Ebenezer Scrooge, a spy named Smiley, and a special guest star from Wizard101. A host of dire enemies also wait for them: Cat criminal mastermind Captain Swing, the dreaded anarchist Guy Fox, and not one but two elite clockworks - the mysterious Bishop and Rooke, Supreme General of the Armada! New companions, new enemies, new equipment, and new promotion quests for Bonnie Anne and Ratbeard await. The level cap rises, giving pirates access to new epic talents and powers. Come ready for battle, and beware - this is not your Wizard's Marleybone!

Aquila (Book 14- A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cyclops)

After the dark skies to Marleybone, the Pirates journey to the sunny skies of the Achean Way, in the ancient realm of Aquila. Based around Classical Mythology, Aquila is a realm of legendary heroes, terrible monsters, and truly epic quests. To find Argos the Cyclops, keeper of the next piece of the Map to El Dorado, the Pirate must first help the Imperial Eagles win the Trojan War against the evil Snakes if Illios, rescue the hero Theseus, and follow Ulysess home on his odyssey. This is the longest single Book created for Pirate101, and its truly epic. Pirates will fight beside legendary heroes like Eagilles, Hawkules, and Zeena, queen of the Amazons. Guided by mysterious prophecies from the Oracle of Delphos and the Immortals of Olympus, Pirates will journey to many exotic locations, including the streets of Troy, the Isle of Sirens, ruined Knossos, and the shining city of Nova Aquila, center of the glorious Eagle Empire. New monsters stand in their way, including Mantiocores, Ettins, Centaurs, Cyclopses, and some of the toughest bosses Pirate101 has ever seen: Talos the Colossus, Medusa the Gorgon, the invincible Minotaur, the Hydra, and Scylla & Charybdis! As with Marleybone, this new Book raises the level cap even higher, to level 65. Tame a Pegesus mount, win the Golden Egg in battle, promote the members of the Magnificent Seven, win fabulous treasures, brave the depths of the Labyrinth, and win the favor of Athena and Ares. This is Pirate101 at its most fantastic, full of mythic adventure and humor.

What do you want to see with Pirate101?

Ahoy Pirates!

I've been thinking a lot lately about Pirate101 and the new content puzzles they released. I've decided to make a post telling what I want to see with Pirate101 and hope that you add to the post by commenting below telling me and or Kingsisle what you want to see on the game. I'll add sections of what I want to see on the game and off the game. Here's my list of things I want to see with Pirate101..

The Making of Pirate101

This is probably the first thing I really want to see but its not on the game, its off the game on YouTube. Years ago Kingsisle made videos of the Making of Wizard101 and told everyone how they made the game and why. I really loved that all of the videos because they are interesting. I would love to see Kingsisle talking about Pirate101 and explaining to everyone what Pirate101 is about and how or where they came up with the idea. I think its a great way of Kingsisle connecting even more with the players of their games.


Online (More farming for Epic Gear)

Everyone loves farming for something.. gold or gear.. I would love to see high level Pirate101 Gear such as level 50 or level 60 gear (with future worlds). I would like to see that with the last bosses of each world. I love farming and think this would be a great way to help our pirate prepare for the next world with the new gear. Please add this option. I know Pirate101's new and this is why I love making these "idea" posts!

Slow-Motion Attacks


 I was talking to Swordroll today about slow motion companion attacks and I love taking pictures of the slow motion attacks and then about Pirate slow motion attacks. Pirates don't have too many slow motion attacks, but I would love to see these type attacks so I can take epic pictures of my pirate like the one above with my companion doing an epic hit! Wouldn't you love to see these type of pictures with your Pirate? :) What would you like to see? Comment below with your ideas. Thanks everyone for reading and thank you Kingsisle for a great successful game!

Free for Download (Official Pirate101 New Content Images)

Ahoy Pirates,

Just another post with two new images for download. You can download it from here or from any of the other fansites that post the new images. Have fun, and I'm uploading one of them for a new background until I upload the new background with the new blog update coming later next month!



The Puzzles are Complete!

Ahoy Pirates!

If you haven't heard by now, the puzzles are complete. Thanks to many great pirates they were completed before noon today. That's very fast! I think there are a lot of smart pirates out there. I'm very excited about Pirate101's new content that I couldn't even focus making yesterday's post. What world or worlds do you think Pirate101's going to release? Marleybone and Aquila or could both pictures be one world just different skyways of the world? You tell me what you think in the comments below. Here's the two pictures!


A huge thank you to Talkin' The Plank for putting these pictures together. The two pictures so do look interesting don't they? The first one looks a little like Marleybone. The second one reminds me of Cyclops Lane (Wizard101). Talkin' The Plank believes the first one is Marleybone and the second is Aquila. What do you think of these two pictures? Don't forget to comment below! I have that feeling Pirate101's going to release something very soon! Make sure to click on the pictures to view Talkin' the Plank's Post!

Reshuffle Change > World Release Speed

Hello Wizards!


I've noticed that reshuffle was changed along with many things with PvP. Well, I'm not speaking for Kingsisle but I strongly believe all of these changes happened all at once because Wizard101 has released so many worlds (2 within one year) and after all of that time working on the worlds and not PvP, they probably started working on it since they noticed they wasn't before. Before asking for worlds you need to figure out what we need, not want. This change was needed after so long since barely a few people was focusing on it. Why now? Well, it was needed and it was how it was how it was supposed to be. I don't know much about PvP but you should give Wizard101 some time to catch up with updates to the system. Who knows, maybe they will change it, if not then that's how its supposed to be.


Before you get mad at me for making this post, I'm only saying that I believe Kingsisle needs time with PvP. I don't PvP so don't cast frost giant on me. Lol. The one thing that I do not agree on is the people who kept asking for worlds decided to switch and get mad because of this reshuffle change. They never released two worlds in six months before 2011, so its a huge change. They are trying to do something for everyone, even though I think they should do what they think they should do on some things such as world release rate. I'm only making this blog post because I love making posts on my thoughts about the game. I really would love to thank Kingsisle for not releasing a world and trying to fix the PvP situation though. Fixing things that need to be fixed should always come first not a world release. Maybe this gives you time to fix the bugs with the next world release (whenever it is released) we won't have too many bugs on the test realm and barely any on the live realm. Before I make this post longer than it needs to be, please remember everything you have read. Maybe a few of you will read or maybe a lot will read this post. I hope you agree with me though!

2/28 Pieces of the Puzzle(s)!

Ahoy Pirates!

Kingsisle sent out small images/ puzzle pieces to all of the Official Pirate101 Fansites. All of the images represent small puzzle pieces that should be put together for one main image. I have two pieces of puzzle showing little areas and when put together it'll show a huge picture(s) of new content that's sailing its way to Pirate101! There are 14 puzzle pieces  for each puzzle, I have two of them. Make sure to view the other Pirate101 Fansite's puzzle pieces also. Are ye up for the challenge? Sail your way to the other Pirate101 Fansites to put the puzzle pieces together. Note: A few of the other Fansites may only post one today and another tomorrow. I'll post a link to the Pirate101 Fansites below. Here's my two pieces of the puzzle, remember there are two puzzles, I have one of each!

Black Sun Pyramid

Hello Wizards,

I'm sorry I haven't had a chance to blog in awhile, new template and Pirate101 adds a lot of work. I hope a lot of you are still reading about my fire Wizard, it may be old news to most of you but don't worry I'm going to continue making Wizard101 posts as long as one of you read my new posts :) Okay, to the blog post! I talked to King Axaya Knifemoon and he gave me permission to search the Black Sun Pyramid.

Entering the dungeon!

Volcano #1

Volcano #2

This does not look good...

Click these images to view Belloq's words to me! 

You're the one that kept casting Ra aren't you?!

No, Merle said I might be headmaster one day when I started!

Volcano #3 :D
I was worried I wouldn't make it alone since Belloq had a lot of health so I purchased a minion. Its not bad to buy a minion to help you even if you're soloing the world. It'll help a lot more than you think :) My zebra helped me defeat Belloq, she actually had a +100% storm blade and used Sirens on the enemies!

They are great singers right?

My dragon is stronger than Ra, sorry Belloq!

Surprisingly, he didn't use one Ra throughout the entire battle, he was actually easy considering he was balance! Maybe he lost his powers? Hmm. I guess that's the end of him.. I'm going to end the post now, here's his final words to me and I'll add that sneak peek below his words to me. See ya around the Spiral!

Finding Fin!

Ahoy Pirates,

On my last blog post I found out about an important map that a lot of enemies were after. Captain Avery told me I had to search for the other six pieces of the map for the entire map to be complete. There's 7 total pieces of this important map and I only have one.. Well had one! A fish named Fin stole it away from me though. I think its time I show him that stealing is bad and he shouldn't steal from anyone again! I had to destroy cutthroat ships and attack sharks that wanted me for dinner..

I don't think so! 

That's right, we win this round! :)

Since I have a lot of pictures, I'll just show you an example of who's going to win :D


Okay, I don't think that's good. I know that if we can defeat them, we can defeat the others! I'm not afraid of the Armada :) I'll keep the map away from them though, no matter what. Talking about that, I'm going to end the post. I'll continue next time and of course.. here's a sneak peek of the next post. See ye around the Spiral!

The Map

Ahoy Pirates!

I'm sorry I haven't made a post in a few days, the day I was actually planning on making a post, I had quite a stormy day and had to sail through it and couldn't make a post. I'm back though :) You're probably anxious wondering what the letter said right? Well I was too! Here's what the letter said..


I'm starting to worry, this map must be VERY important. We better sail to the flotsam right away.



After finding Nim, I was worried I would die, since I've posted many photos on this post I'll only post one to show you the outcome of this match again the meanest Wharf Rat in all of Scrimshaw & his rat friends :D

That's EPIC

I finally rescued One-Eyed Jack from Nim, he was a tough Wharf Rat, I was the only one left by the end of it all. I'm glad I survived though, its the first time I survived this fight with a character without having help.


I have to find 6 pieces of a map that everyone in the Spiral will fight me for! This is going to be one crazy adventure.. I'll do it though. I'll start my adventure searching for the six pieces of the map after you look at the picture down below. See ye around the Spiral, I hope you enjoyed this post :D

My next quest, click on this picture for the next post when its up!
