Side Quest Companions: For Better or Worse?

Introduction // Pirate101 offers you a number of interesting companions, from Crown Shop reworks to side quest rewards. Those of you who remember Beta remember it as a collector's paradise, in which everyone scrambled for every possible companion, showing off their rarest ones in Avery's Court. However, as Beta neared its end, some realized that they might not have made the best decisions.

To Fourteen Pips... And Beyond?

KingsIsle recently released the world of Azteca in Wizard101 US, and not too terribly long ago, released Avalon in Wizard101 UK. With the introduction of Azteca, Rank 10 Spells were released, and with Avalon in the UK, four sets of various spells were released. However, new gear doesn't offer as much Power Pip chance as it used to, and pips are harder and harder to gather... what happens when you go over your limit?

Joining Battles Without Asking: Opinions and Responses

It's been a long-existing debate in Wizard101, and a brand-new issue in Pirate101 - is it okay to jump into people's battles, and why or why not? Furthermore, if someone is not adhering to the way you think things should be, what is an appropriate reaction? Most people have a preconceived idea about this topic, but lets keep an open mind and consider both sides.

A Necessary Evil?

Pirate101 beta players might remember battling the above elemental guardian in MooShu as one of the five final fights in the game. An occasion like that certainly called for a unique location, and it was certainly unique - and needed to be photographed. Previously, that was made easy with the push of a few keys - Ctrl + G. However, since Pirate hit live, they have removed this feature in combat - here's three reasons it needs to come back!

Pyramid of the Lost: Azteca Housing?

The photo above is obviously a quick illustration I put together using three images from J. Todd Coleman's Facebook page, but there's some real evidence to the idea that Azteca housing is on the way. Well, to clarify, we know that Azteca housing is in the works, it just might be here sooner than we thought.

The Adventure Continues!

Now that I'm "back on my feet" and in "recovery mode," I'm ready to get going again! However, that hadn't been the only thing putting my Pirate101 journey at a standstill. Fortunately, after the announcement of the $60 60,000 crown sale, I was all set to get going again - and I'm ready for some pirating!

Boochbeard Bundle Retirement, New Pirate101 Fansites, and Veteran's Day Gift

What pirate doesn't want a massive, tropical island to his or herself, complete with a volcano and extensive indoor and outdoor space? The house I'm referring to is the one that comes with the Boochbeard Bundle, of course. And it doesn't begin to scratch the surface of this magnificent card - available with crowns or subscription!

Azteca's Ending: Too Dark?

Warning - if you're not one for spoilers, it's time to keep scrolling to the next post! I'd like to visit a topic today that is quite revealing - the end of Azteca! You see, it's not another Morganthe-escapes-and-all-is-well-in-a-world-you-just-saved sort of deal. Quite the opposite in at least one of those cases. However, the end of Azteca has been widely debated, and I'm here to share my opinion.

Be Back Shortly

I haven't been posting too often recently, but I'm not at all finished here on my blog. In fact, I'd say it's quite the opposite. I've already got a variety of posts planned for these next few weeks. However, a few recent real-life issues have been affecting my ability to post. While I'm feeling decent, I'm going to offer you some insight into those, and give you an idea of what's planned for the coming month.
