Pirate101 has had its players drooling over some new and upcoming content. They released a first spoiler in the update notes, and now another is out. Speculations have ranged from Player vs. Player to annual events. Here's what the community is saying.
Everyone's Gone Barmy!The first image released in the November Newsletter depicts an old man. His eyes are wild and he carries a book. Bonnie makes a comment implying that he's not quite... mentally stable.
- Bonnie Anne is unpromoted, likely making this a Free-to-Play quest
- This appears to be a cave interior with a Skull Island (world) theme
- It would appear that this is actually on the Skull Island (location) itself
A Grand Occasion?Today, Pirate101 released a new image on their social media networks depicting a dock and eagle holding a coliseum in the background.
- The area is certainly Aquila-themed
- The boat seems to lead to the eagle in the distance
- The eagle's massive size could mean he's a classic character such as Atlas (As Sheldon Cooper suggests)
Community ThoughtsKelsey Fireheart immediately thought Ship PvP. Paige Moonshade chimed in on Facebook with her comment: "Please be ship to ship and not ranked PvP" - Agreed! Emphasis on the NOT Ranked PvP! And actually, such as idea isn't completely crazy, either.
"The Romans would flood the Coliseum, build battleships in it, and then fight naval battles!"
However, others had different theories - annual Immortal Games? With the Coliseum, we'll very likely do something like a set of games, but my guess is that it's for a different purpose. I'm thinking it's our Thanksgiving quest line! Bird, right? It's just too bad that it isn't a massive turkey... that'd be one fine Thanksgiving dinner!
The first hint (Ancient Pilgrim? Roanoke colonist? Just a crazy guy in a cave?) just doesn't seem to compliment the idea of a new system - it seems to be a quest. And without Bonnie promoted, it would make sense that it's a holiday promotion for everyone.
What do you think? What is coming to Pirate101? Thanks for reading and see you in the Spiral.
