Sonja and I have been blogging for a long time and it's sometimes difficult to find something we don't see eye to eye on. In the wake of Pirate101's Valencia Part 2, and presumably Book 15, teaser video, players have surprisingly mixed reactions. Sonja and I will tackle two different angles of the response in order to provide a more complete picture for readers. To start out, read her post HERE.

At lost last. Players have asked and asked for this expansion more than any other in the history of KingsIsle games, and not only did rumors foster the idea that KingsIsle was stopping production on main story Pirate content, but Pirate101 themselves stated something similar. With the same general model as Wizard101, not having a story update in three years was a huge worry for players. However, KingsIsle Live has become their saving grace.

Pirate101 really took a step up from Wizard101 in adding a new and essential form of transportation for pirates - sailing. But that isn't really it. There are actually several ways the Pirate101 developers have gotten clever with transportation, and I want to talk about some of those methods. I'll also take a look at potential new ways - and I might just throw in a solution to overpowered gear from packs, too.

Wizard101 has been around for between seven and eight years now, and a lot has changed. Take the dueling circle, for example, that's pictured above. The proportions are different, and the transparency has changed. That's a minor difference compared to a lot of the updates done over the years. Older players will remember some of the following images in this week's #ThrowbackThursday.

It is not uncommon for a wizard of one school to be an expert in spells from others. Not only is there some crossover potential, there are also a lot of people who play multiples. However, for all the Wizard101 aficionados out there, not many have seen these spell cards.

While many have been busy with their wizards or outside the Spiral, others have hunted fiercely for the multitude of unknown hybrids in Pirate101 that Decius consistently provides hints for. That's one major difference with the pet systems in Wizard101 and Pirate101 - in Pirate, hatching and creating a pet is a short-term (or shorter) process, but hybrids are not so cut and dry. It takes some pretty serious dedication and/or crazy luck to locate them.
