Pirate101 is a free-to-play, pirate-themed MMOG from KingsIsle Entertainment, makers of Wizard101. The game is set in the same universe as its wizard-themed predecessor, so players can expect to continue to challenge the Clockwork Empire. Players begin the game by creating a pirate and then setting out to gain a ship and crew. Pirate101 offers swashbuckling ground combat, but its main fighting focus is comprised of ship-to-ship combat high in the sky among the skyways and floating islands in the Weave.
So, it's officially going to be October very soon and honestly it's such a fun month in Pirate101! It may sound like a lot. It is. But it's a great thing! Here's my five things I'm looking forward to October in Pirate101.
One of the coolest things you can do in Pirate101 other than fighting, sailing, farming, PvPing, decorating your houses. Yes, Pirate101 has so many diversions you could do to keep you busy! But my favorite is hatching for new and improved pets. To be more specific, finding a new hybrid pet! A hybrid pet means that in Pirate101, you can combine two pets to create a brand new pet that can't be found in any other way!
Last week for Arrrgust in Pirate101, Pirates could redeem the "lostmehand" code for a free Captain's Hook with a rare chance at getting Captain Blood's Hook weapon. The Captain Blood's Hook is great for pirates who are Level 35 and above. It's a rare drop from the Miranda dungeon in Cool Ranch.
Pirate101 has posted a Falmea Friday post on their official message boards last Friday which was cheered by many pirates in the spiral. Why do you ask? It had cryptic messages of new things to come soon.
Last week, Pirate101 introduced a brand new Permanent mount in the Crown Shop - the Astral Unicorn! You now can ride around on a semitransparent purple unicorn who is filled with tiny galaxies. Makes me think of the movie, "Men In Black" and that adorable cat with the galactic charm on its collar.
I love Pirate101. I love playing it every chance I can get. Who can't resist being a pirate? So when I tell my friends that they should try it too. They give me a strange look and they often say, "But that's a game for kids, isn't it?"
With the arrival of Valencia Part 2 in Pirate101's live realm, it's hopping in the Avery's office where a lot of pirates are eagerly grabbing new quests that will send them to the brand new Calabria Skyway. But it's not the ONLY new thing in Pirate101.
Pirate101 servers are now back up after deployment of the Valencia 2 update that brings a number of big changes to the game. Players can look forward to a level cap increase and can amass up to 250K gold. In addition, the update brings upgraded powers, new weapons, new companions, new gear, new pets, mounts and ships as well.
When people ask me why they should try Pirate101 again even when test realm is back with new content, asking me what is new that is important enough to play it again? Here are my main reasons why you should jump back into Pirate101.
