  • Holiday Joy in the Spiral

    We're almost halfway through December and that means Kingsisle's holiday celebrations are in full force in both of their games. Felix Navidad is back in the shopping district, present boxes are scattered throughout Skull Island, and festive decorations are all over the place. With past favorites returning, and some new holiday items and activities making their way into Wizard101 and Pirate101, the 2017 Yuletide celebration is looking to be a good one.

  • Ride a Rad Surfboard While Fighting Pirates

    With the summer finally here, that also means that Pirate101 is bringing out the summer goods in their Crown Shop. You now can ride a totally rad surfboard for 5000 Crowns. You now can surf while fighting your foes and drinking yum all at once. That would make for one awesome summer in Pirate101.

  • Friendship 2017

    For the month of February in Pirate101, you can run around on a cool Friendship Jaguar and buy the Friendship Oni pet to keep you company in battles. Both are brand new additions to the game, never seen before and can be found in the Crown Shop for 4,500 Crowns each. Notice the theme though? Yes, Pirate101 is celebrating Friendships, after all this is a family game!

As the event name says, it will last only for 12 days and each day, they will reveal something great on the calendar.

  • Adventures in The Morphing Tent: The Salsadillo Hybrid

    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.

  • Putting the Unity in Community

    Over the Thanksgiving weekend, I posed a simple question to the Wizard101 community. I asked, “Hey wizards, what are you thankful for?” The question gathered mixed results, but I did notice one constant. Almost all of the responses had “community” somewhere within them. Community is an important aspect in any online game, especially MMOs … but what exactly makes the Wizard101 community so special? Why do so many players feel so connected to it?

  • 9 of The Cutest NPCs in MMORPGs

    Ah, NPCs. They are such a staple in our MMOs that we not only take them for granted, but we can also ignore them. I always make an attempt to appreciate an MMO’s details, and NPCs are often some of most well-designed aspects of many of our favorite titles.
