Like Wizard101 there are many worlds to discover in Pirate101. You can meet pirates from distant lands, find treasure and of course battle creatures big and small.
So once you’ve learned about the Life of A Pirate, take some time to get to know the Pirate Spiral too.
Where you have World Gates in Wizard101, you have Stormgates and Skyways in Pirate 101.
There are currently 7 main worlds so far in the Pirate Spiral. Each one has its own level of challenges and quests to fulfill. The first place you’ll find is Skull Island. You can learn more about each world from Pirate101: Worlds of the Spiral.
Over in the Wizarding World you’ll find:
Wizard City, Krokotopia, Marleybone, Mooshu, Dragonspyre, Celestia, Grizzleheim, Wintertusk, Zafaria, Avalon, Azteca, Khrysalis, Four Dungeons, Polaris, Mirage, and Empyrea.
The latest rumors here in the Pirate spiral that I’ve come across, indicate we may see Polaris, Grizzleheim, Celestia and possibly Krocktopia. The most current rumor suggests this next update could come sometime in 2019. Who knows if these rumors are true. Until KingsIsle makes an announcement, these are of course just rumors. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Skyways and Windlanes
Skyways and Windlanes lay the lands within a world. Where as in Wizard 101 you can run from Unicorn Way or Triton Avenue, here you sail from place to place.
Ships don’t sail through the rough seas… but instead through majestic Skyways! Island hop around the Spiral by sailing your Ship in a magical sky. Each world has its own unique Skyway with magical areas to unlock and discover.
The skyways are filled with treacherous dangers. There are enemy ships and dangerous wild life that can attack your ship, or board it and attack you like dangerous Battacuda and Flying Fish. There are also windstorms and other natural disasters that can destroy your ship as you travel through the Pirate Spiral.
Windlanes help you avoid these dangers. Which ever direction you’re traveling, you can enter a Windlane and it will take you safely through the sky. You can also repair your ship faster within a Windlane.
To traverse from world to world in the Wizard Spiral, you and your pet can run through a World Gate. But those gates are pretty small to get your crew through and you’d really have to squeeze your ship through those doors too.
So here in the Pirate Spiral you will sail your ship through a Stormgate.
Once you complete the Main Quests in Skull Island, you’ll be given your first quest that will take you through a stormgate to a new world to explore.
In May 2013, the Royals of KingsIsle introduced the Transportalaters. These doorways to the other worlds in the spiral are an easy and quick way to get around.
They’re very handy when you have a quest that requires you to jump to another world simply to talk to someone who sends you right back where you were.
Each Transportalater is operated by a Krokatopian, alligators for you non-Pirates.
When these doorways first appeared, they required Crowns, 1000 Crowns to be specific., to jump between worlds. That’s a lot of Crowns, in my humble opinion.
At some point, this changed. But to be honest, I’m not sure if it changed for everyone or just for paid Members. The Cost is still 1000, but it’s 1000 Gold instead of Crowns. That’s much more easily managed.
You can use the Transportalaters can only you transport to worlds you currently have access to. So if you haven’t acquired the quest to Marleybone, you won’t be able to access that world until you do.
