Concept101: Broken Bones

Malistaire... not but a ghost of the past now - lost to the Spiral. For those wondering, "King Artorius" (Jesse Scoble) confirmed that Morganthe had no hand in the Malistaire arc or the death of Sylvia. So her motives for bringing him back must have been elsewhere. However, Artorius also confirms that Malistaire is currently lost and absent from the storyline.

Creating an Amber Estate Map

Wait a minute! What's that? A map for the Amber Estate? That's correct... I made it myself. But the process was a lot harder than you'd imagine, and certainly an intriguing one - allow me to talk you through it.

Pirate101's Class Gear and Its Significance

Class gear? What's all this? Much to my surprise, this slipped in right beneath a lot of people's noses, and they're still not sure what it is or where to get it today. The addition of this new gear is much more than fancy looks, however. It suggests a few exciting... and horrifying things.

Nausica: Revolutionizing Pirate101 PvP

Nausica, oh Nausica... What can I say? This companion has forever changed Pirate101 - it completely alters our concept of Musketeers in more ways than one and has sparked major controversy for Pirate101 Central tournaments. Sheldon did some great coverage of her HERE. This is my analysis and what I have to say.

Housing Tours to Kill Gauntlet Bundle Sales?

With the release of Khrysalis, a great new feature made its way into the Spiral. Housing Tours! This awesome new shop allows you to visit houses from those who have chosen to put them on display for others to see under four categories. You can rate each house based on how much you enjoy it, and even interact with items within it. However, could these new tours have an unseen side effect?

Wizard101 UK Sheds Light on St. Bernard Pet and Yuletide Gear

I logged into Wizard101 UK this afternoon after reports surfaced of the St. Bernard pet being spotted there. And sure enough, I ran into a wizard named Matthew, who was happy to allow me to take photos of his impressive new dog. Plus, he revealed some information on it... and I also caught some Yuletide item looks.

Keeping Your Account Safe in an Age of Technology

There are a lot of ways to compromise your personal information any more. And I've been reading a lot of Central threads lately regarding hacked accounts that were unfairly banned. Maybe one person wasn't telling the whole story, sure, but all these threads would just be too many coincidences. I believe in treating the problem at the source - keeping our accounts secure.
