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.
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.
After aimlessly wandering the skyways for far too long, pirates were anxious and excited for the long-awaited continuation of the Pirate101 storyline. Luckily, the recent test realm allows players to resume their adventure and explore much more.
Avast! There's something on the Pirate101 horizon that is inching closer and closer to port. Pirates have been eagerly awaiting new storyline content for some time now, and it appears their wishes will be granted soon enough! Concept art and screenshots teasing the longawaited storyline update have been abundant this week, and we have an intriguing one of our own.
The December Monthly Newsletter is now live on the Pirate101 site. In it, players can check out the latest Rogue's Gallery starring Count Brastillo De Brass along with his attendant lore and a bit about his abilities.
