Stepping away from my analysis post series, I want to concentrate on the Pirate101 Trailer. It offers us a lot, but leaves wizards and soon-to-be pirates with more questions than answers. If you're looking purely for answers, you might be in the wrong place, because I'm taking a hard look at everything noteworthy.

I'd say that that Patriotic Leprechaun banner is worth opening full-size! It's pretty neat. But, there's a watermark... why is that? Honestly, when you visit Facebook pages that have basically regurgitated all of your photos and illustrations, your kindness with watermarking sinks.
Earlier today, Legends of the Spiral UK hosted the Summer's Super Party in-game. While the party page itself indicated that only ten or twenty people might be coming, but the game told a whole different story! Quickly, Gamma went from one area to three, and the Life tower filled up!

In my mind, it is better to carefully look into new information, and provide a closer look (and theorycrafting, of course) than to immediately present new information that you can view yourself, anyway. There's quite a number of new pictures and bits of info, so we'd better take a close look!
If you've dug very deep into the Wizard101 UK community (careful, you might hit some AMAZING on the way down), then you probably know the Community Manager, Emy Anemsalok! After a couple of tweets today, I think we all agree that she's, as she says, "useful, (apart, ofc from awesome) sometimes", except we might have to transition to more descriptive words like invaluable, and super-amazing.

Introducing the brand new Phoenix Bundle! Wizard101 has left subtle hints about bundles, a few of which, including the Pagoda Bundle, must have simply slipped out early! Here are some details!

A day after the supposed release of the Pagoda Gauntlet bundle, we're beginning to realize that Target seems to have launched the cards early! Not only does the tower appear to have some bugs, but the card also gives you two sets of gear - some for level 10 and up, and some for level 20 and up. It also appears that the bow is not included.

Right under our noses, KingsIsle released a brand new $39 card at local Target stores! However, at this point, you've got plenty of houses, and they decided to try something new - a sigil-lit gauntlet with amazing XP rewards, a news badge, and a variety of cool drops!

After reviewing over 1700 entries, and deleting over 200 invalid ones, I finally came to the end of the line, and used Rafflecopter's system (powered by Random.org) to choose four winners who receive prizes according to the order in which they were selected.

Most of you are probably wondering what sort of etiquette pirates have. I assure you, Pirates aren't the crazy madmen you thought they were at all. In fact, there's almost a Pirate Code for general manners... (This is all historically accurate, right, Swordroll?)

Recently, KingsIsle announced the newest pack - the Hoard of the Hydra! For 399 crowns in the Crown Shop, you can get a chance at the first ever three-person mount - one per head! Of course, you didn't need ME to tell you about the new pack, it's all over the place. I did, however, decide to share my few attempts.

Is it a question you've always been afraid to ask? A secret irritation that you never understood? One way or another, we've almost all been exposed to promotion in the Wizard101 community. Consider Wizard101 - they've got it all - Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, and YouTube! How about Diary of a Wizard, whose owner is often called the Queen of Social Media? There's quite a lot of promotion left and right. Why is that?

A while back, Wizard101 UK got Zafaria. That can only mean one thing - Avalon is on the way! Let me tell you now, Avalon is a step up from Zafaria. The final battle in Zafaria was four 4,000 health enemies. Beware - before you're done with Avalon, the street mobs will have that much health! And how about those lovely 5,000 to 8,000 health bosses? You won't find one boss under 10,000 health in Avalon. You'll even find some around 25,000, and several 15,000 health bosses that cheat!

If you were a part of the Wizard101 UK maze two days ago, you know how much fun it was! As a finale to the Diamond Jubilee Celebration, wizards met in Unicorn Way park and awaited the arrival of Gameforge Support to add them and allow them to teleport directly into a small dorm room... with a portal to a string of about seven houses, each containing a variety of teleporters that might take you one step ahead, might start you over, or just might get you stuck altogether.

I'm not sure about you, but I've been eyeing those new, craftable spells! At a recipe cost of 60,000 gold, and having requirements like 100 Blood Moss, 100 Diamonds, and Treasure Card versions of the spell, it doesn't come cheap, though. And there's also about a million new versions of pets being released through Pet-A-Palooza, so you'll want to be hatching left and right! That raises a question, though... when it comes to leveling your pets, where does THAT cash come from?
