Pirate101's Book 15: Valencia Part 2 In-Depth Analysis

Pirate101 recently announced that Book 15 (Valencia Part 2) would come in two chapters this summer as the conclusion of the first arc. Three years later, not only is there a lot to catch up on, there's a lot to look back at. Some of this information will be a refresher and other portions will be new. I hope I will make some connections that you did not formerly.

Ten Things You Wish You Knew Before Starting Pirate101

If only you'd just known! There are a lot of key bits of information in both Wizard101 and Pirate101 that players don't necessarily pick up on until it's too late to make use of them. I've compiled ten of them here in no particular order in hopes that new pirates and existing pirates who pass information on will learn a thing or two.

Opposing Viewpoints: Book 15 Reactions

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.

Pirate101 Announces Book 15: Valencia Pt. 2

Pirate101 Book 15 Release Date Valencia Part 2

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.

Modes of Transportation: Pirate101

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.
