MMO Terminology

What Does That Mean

You might be surprised to know that online gaming isn’t just for kids or young adults. The large variety of games can attract people of all ages to spend their weekends, or evenings letting go of stress and frustrations by blowing up buildings, killing monsters or just letting out some steam.

Pirate101 is one of these games. Back in 2013 AARP Highlighted both Wizard101 and Pirate101 as beneficial games for older adults.

If you’re a gamer you already know all of these gaming terms. But if your new to online gaming, or you’re an older adult just getting into gaming you may have seen these acronyms in news and wondered what they stand for or what these gaming folks are talking about.

The World Of Dreams

Obsidian Door at the Scrimshaw Docks

Skeleton Key Bosses

This world isn’t like going from Skull Island to Marleybone. It’s more like a dungeon that you can enter, exit and come back to over and over again.

The World of Dreams begins at the Obsidian Door on the Scrimshaw Docks. Once you’ve docked, run to the right of the ships and head over to the Dock Warehouses. At the end of the row of the buildings, you’ll the doorway and sigil.

Inside the Obsidian Door you’ll find a place that looks like the many sewers of the Spiral. But these corridors lead to some spooky locked doors that require a Skeleton Key to open them. Behind these doors you’ll find old enemies who have been leveled up to “Skeleton Key Bosses”.

Anyone can step on the sigil, these battles are designed for teams.  If you enter as a team, one of you will need to have a skeleton key so everyone can enter the boss door.  You can take on these bosses in a solo run, but expect it to be difficult. Or you can team up with a various number of other Pirate Captains and take on the Bosses together. Continue reading
