New Wizard Questing Part 1

Hey there Wizards!

Last week, Edward Lifegem and I started a new weekly stream where we created new wizards with all of you to quest through the game.  This stream is every Tuesday evening from 7pm-9pm EDT.

Last Tuesday was our first day of questing on these wizards.  I made a fire wizard named Autumn Flame and Edward made a myth wizard named Edward Gem.  We started right in Ambrose's office to get the first quest and then we headed to Unicorn way.  We made it all the way through that area and started in on Triton Avenue, where we left off for the night.  You can see more details about exactly where below the picture.

Quest
Who's in Charge (Collect Lumina Crystals)

Area
Kraken Realm

Stream

We have decided to do most side quests on our own time, but we will be doing some as we quest through, especially quests to areas like Aquila and Crab Ally where we can farm for new gear.  If you would like to join us this week, it isn't too late! Simply make a wizard and quest to the point mentioned above and then meet up with us tomorrow.  I hope to see you there because last week was a lot of fun! P.S. If you do join in, remind me to take some better screenshots this week! haha

New Pirate101 Updates and a Streaming Announcement

Ahoy pirates!

Guess what happened this morning! Pirate101 released a new update to the live game! I am so excited about this one if you can't tell from all the exclamation points!!!!!!!!! Okay, I will stop shouting at you all now, but seriously I am so excited.  I always love new Pirate101 content and while this update isn't a storyline update, it does add some cool new features.  Let's take a look at them.

Old Scratch Promotion - I love the companion promotion quests and this one is super cool and spooky!  Once you are level 70 and promote Old Scratch to level 70, you can do a promotion quest for him! And this particular update actually leads into the next one.

Skeleton Key Bosses - If you play Wizard101, you may already be familiar with skeleton key bosses, but they are a new addition to Pirate101.  You access the first one (Old Scratch) during Old Scratch's promotion quest. After that, there are three more as well, Captain Blood, Brass Monkey, and Duck of Death.  These bosses are TOUGH, so be prepared!

Quest Finder - Having trouble finding those hidden side quests?  Now Pirate101 has a quest finder!  To activate it, just click the quest finder box in your quest book and the quest arrow will direct you to the closest quest you haven't collected yet.

Other updates include backpack item lock, increased space elixirs for the friends list, backpack, and banks, new pet names, member benefits and many more!  You can see the complete list of updates by clicking here: Pirate101 Updates.

To celebrate the release of these updates to the live game, Edward and I will be streaming a run through of the Skeleton Key bosses this Sunday during our stream.  We will be looking for 2 more level 70 people who have skeleton keys to join us so we can complete all four bosses.  Let us know if you are interested!  Of course, more are welcome to join in and we can split into groups too, so if you have a level 70 pirate with a level 70 Old Scratch, meet up with us in Avery's Court, One-Eyed Jack realm on Sunday at 7pm EDT!  Hope to see you there!

Balloon Run Recap

Hey everyone!

As you might know, Wizard101's 10th birthday is this month.  Many of the fansites are having events and contests to celebrate.  I hosted a Balloon Run with Edward Lifegem from Around the Spiral this past Sunday.  It was a ton of fun and we streamed the entire event.

We started off just hanging out in Ravenwood and talking with everyone.  Many people showed up early and it was fun interacting.  Kingsisle was awesome and provided us with a code for 1-Day balloon mounts for everyone to use during the event. There may be some mounts left on this code, so try it out if you would like your own 1-Day Balloon mount.  The code is: Balloons1DaySOTS.

Once everyone had their mounts, we took a few pictures and then it was time to.....well not run, but float!  We went around Ravenwood 5 times and then around the Commons 5 times to signify 10 years of Wizard101.

After the run, it was time for hide and seek, where 3 winners each won a permanent balloon mount!  Then it was time to port to my Celestial Observatory for the after party.

The main part of the after party was the scavenger hunt, where people had to find 5 specific items and email screenshots of them to us.  The winner of that contest was Isaiah Hexrider.  Congrats Isaiah! The scavenger hunt ended up being more difficult than we had planned and took a lot longer than expected, but I still think people had fun with it.  After that, we had a few housing games for Party Corgi pets and also another mini hide and seek for Decaversary packs.

I would like to thank everyone who showed up!  I think this was a really fun event and I had a lot of fun hanging out with everyone!  Congrats to all the winners of the contests and thank you to Kingsisle for providing all the codes for the rewards!

There is still a lot more going on throughout the rest of the month.  Check out all the official fansites for contests and you can see the rest of the scheduled events below.  Thanks again to everyone and Happy 10th Birthday, Wizard101!
