Worlds In The Stormgate

Captain Victoria Bristol

Hints For What’s To Come

Do you take time to look around when you’re traveling between worlds, in the stormgates? You might like to slow down a little and check out the sights. There are some interesting things floating around out there that might give you an indication for what’s to come in the Pirate Spiral.

Today my Pioneer* Captain, a Level 70 Buccaneer, boarded her ship and headed off to Florenza. Thanks to the new Quest Finder, I discovered a quest I missed that required a battle in the stormgate between Mooshu and Florenza.

During the battle, I noticed something in the stormgate, that I haven’t seen before. There are some new worlds floating around out there. I’ve seen some new worlds over the past 7 to 10 months, but there are some I’ve never seen before. And then of course, there are the familiar worlds we all know.

You’re probably familiar with most of these. And you may have seen some of the new worlds floating around and wondered what they might be. A few might be familiar to players of Wizard101.  Here’s a world chart to help. Continue reading

2018 Updates Go Live

Skeleton Key

Enter The World of Dreams

The royals at KingsIsle have closed the Test Realm and moved the updates to the Live Realm! Check out what’s new in this August 2018 update. Then take time to visit old friends and discover new battles!

Or you can check out our Update Observations from the Test Realm. Unfortunately we didn’t have the time to test out all the new updates. But we got close. I have made updates to these Observations since the updates have gone live.

I suggest you start with the new Quest Finder! Then trek around the spiral to find the Bosses who are holding onto the new Skeleton Keys. And if you’re a level 70 pirate, visit with Old Scratch in a Tavern to start your promotion quest that leads to The World of Dreams!

The Quest Finder is excellent for Pirates who have been playing the game from the very beginning. For instance, my Level 70 Witchdoctor had never completed the Lizard City quest in Blood Shoals. That area was added to Skull Island when I was battling in Cool Ranch. Of course my other Pirate Captains have been through Lizard City, but I some how missed running that quest with highest and oldest Pirate Captain. Who knew!

A good idea for your higher level Pirates is to run through each world and find any quests that were added to those realms that you might have missed.

Now let’s get busy Pirate!

Pirate101 Test RealmWe’re Closed … For the Weekend
September 7, 2018

I was having a good time in the Test Realm today. And I was looking forward to sailing to each world and finding the new quests that have been added this evening and through the weekend.

But alas, the Scurvy Dogs who cater to the Royals in KingsIsle have been chained to their grindstones and put back to work again.

We’ll see you next week. In the mean time you might want to check out what we’ve seen and learned so far.  Visit our Test Realm Observations, we’ve made some updates today.

Quest Journal – The Machine

The Battle To Face Kane

Your final battle with Kane takes place in Florenza. But of course it’s not as easy as walking in and facing him one on one. You know Kane isn’t going to play that game.

It’s not an easy battle, but it’s not as difficult as the Moo Manchu Tower either. Still it helps to be prepared and there are a few tips and tricks to winning this final Kane quest.

You don’t have to run around to find this Quest, it’s part of the storyline. You’ll be sent to find the creator of Kane, Gazpaccio. At the end of his quest, Gazpaccio will ask you to take him to the Machine Docks and the Razing Kane quest begins. The first step of the quest is to Escort Gazpaccio to The Machine Docks.

The Machine Docks will look familiar, you’ve had battles in similar areas of the Armada’s big machine. Thankfully you won’t have to fight your way to the dungeon sigil though. You’ve had help with that from an unlikely friend. Phule, the court jester. Phule has discovered that he too will be destroyed by Kane’s grand plan. So he’s decided to help you out.

The Pirate101 Test Realm is Offline

Pirate101 Test RealmI Think We Broke It
September 1, 2018

If you logged in to the Test Realm this morning, you received this message:

The Test Realm is currently offline for the weekend and will be back up sometime on Tuesday. Thank you for testing the game, Pirates, and see you when the Test Realm comes back online!

For those of you new to the Test Realm, the whole purpose is for players to help KI put the new updates through their paces and find the issues BEFORE they are released in the Live Realm. We as players do something for KI and in return we get the chance to see what’s coming before the release. That’s the fun part!

But that also means we Pirates can stress the system so much, the Royals at KI may need to take the test realm offline to make corrections. It’s thankless job, but I’m sure the programmers will make their tweaks as quickly as possible and get us back online soon.
