Pirate101's New Pets in Test Realm!





So there's new pets in Test Realm! I can't wait for test to be live, so we can get those brand new pets. And of course along with new pets, means more hybrids to discover!

Fire Toad from Gortez, Temple of the Gold Monkey in Gold Mine, Skull Island

Scylla Spawn Pet from Scylla in Aquila

So, two new pets being found being dropped? I bet there's quite a bit more out there that are hiding. Once the game is live, we must find them all!

Corrupted Imperial Lion from Tower of Moo Manchu
Corrupted Dragon is also from this tower.

Not only that, there apparently has been pets being loaded in Bestia.

Heck Kitty
Tarantula
Black Tiger
Iguana

So my question is, do you guys think they're for Halloween? They sound Halloweenish to me imo. But the thing is, I don't know if the Heck Kitty will look exactly the cat we see in the Morphing Tent. I am hoping that it's creeper looking!

As for hybrids, what do you think those pets could produce? I was thinking of Horned Toad maybe from Fire Toad and Scylla Spawn? So many theories, not enough time!

Wizard101 Test Realm Is Open!!!


Wizard101 Test Realm is Open for some cool updates! You now can restore Arcane Castles and there's a brand new Crown Shop look and tons of other minor updates.

The New Crown Shop Look!




There's new sub-categories that makes it easier!

The New Restore Castle!




Mystery Doodle?



This was odd since this guy seemed so out of place when being surrounded by the typical Wizard City characters. Maybe it's a clue for future quest updates?!

Minor Details


A few things you should know from the Update Notes that bear reminding.


  • Buy Pigswick Academy Tapestry NOW because they have removed it in Test.
  • The Krokotopian Houseboat now can be placed in Shared Bank.
  • The Spiral Cup Gauntlet is now not only limited to friends.
  • A fish will indicate if it's Seasonal.
  • You won't be able to access the fishing menu in non-fishing areas.
  • Lloyd Fallingwater has two new Castle Block recipes - Roof/Floor B Castle Block and Roof In Corner Castle Block.

The Waterfall Challenge





So I got inspired after seeing the Ice Bucket Challenge. I'm doing this for my cousin Grace who passed away on August 13th, 2014. She had Sanfilippo Syndrome, a rare degenerative disease which there is no cure for. She was only 13. I plan to donate as always to the Team Sanfilippo Foundation after this video is posted to support them to find a cure for this.

I hope to encourage you guys to do as well. $5, $10, $50, whatever after posting a video of your waterfall challenge. Please go to: http://teamsanfilippo.org/donate

It's up to you if you want to. I hope you do though. Let's do this for kids like Grace who has Sanfilippo Syndrome! When posting your Waterfall challenge video on Facebook or Twitter, please use the hashtag #WaterfallChallenge and if you wish, #LetsDoThisForGrace. And don't forget to challenge your friends in doing this. And have fun!

Shark Week



Since it's Shark Week, I thought I should mention something. Sharks have existed in our seas for over 400 MILLION years. Isn't that amazing? Some species like the Smooth Dogfish live up to around 16 years, while others like the Porbeagle Shark live up to 46 years. Whale Sharks which is the largest fish in the world can live up to over 100 years. As for the size, Whale Sharks can reach up to 60 feet!!! The smallest fish, reaching only 8 inches, is the Deepwater Dogfish Shark. Also the Shortfin Mako is the fastest shark, they can reach up to 20 mph speed. Talk about fast!

There's a lot of cool sharks out there, Sawfish, Hammerhead, etc etc that we already know about. In fact, there's over 400 species of Shark and they're still finding more. The funny thing is that there's also 400 species of Rays which is a close relative of the Sharks.

Discovery Channel's Shark Week Event

But, I was curious about the ones we don't know much about. So I was looking up the names and there's tons of cool ones that I can imagine being added to Wizard101 and/or Pirate101. I can imagine them making punny shark fish for fishing as well.

Atlantic Angelshark, Goblin Shark, Atlantic Weasel Shark, Leopard Shark, Salmon Shark, Horn Shark, Cookiecutter Shark, Bull Shark (Think of El Toro but with a Shark body hehe) and more!


Ever since I was 10 years old, I have been attracted to the Whale Shark. It's large and it's gentle. I so love gentle giants, so it's my favorite shark. What about you? Do you got a favorite shark? Comment below if you got one.

Btw, Pirate101 is celebrating Shark Week this week with a special sale on Shark related Companions, Pets and Mounts. You can save up to 50% off! You also can get a free item plus a CHANCE at the Hammerhead Shark mount! Check it out at: https://www.pirate101.com/free_game/arrrgust2014


Shark Whale Mount, anyone? :D

Wizard101 is also celebrating it as well. They are giving away a free item with a CHANCE at the Swift Shark Mount! Check it out at: https://www.wizard101.com/game/shark-week2014

Wizard101 also says they have released a new fish for us fisherpeople - the Warhammerhead Shark! Let's get to Fishing!

Found in Helgrind Warren, GH & Vigrid Roughland, GH

KingsIsle P101/W101 Combo Game Card






A new KingsIsle Pirate101/Wizard101 Combo Game Card has arrived in Dollar General stores! Notice that it says "Or other KingsIsle Games!" Oh, my. What other games could there be?! I always wanted combo cards and it's awesome to see one show up. I just hope they spread to other stores such as CVS, Target, etc because I want to own one!


When you redeem this card, you get a pet in BOTH games! How awesome!


I also love the way they used the NEW graphics for both games for the card. I adore them! They're a lot more eye grabbing, cooler and modern.

Do you like this new change or not? Post your opinions below in the comments.

**Thanks to Logan Mistspear for letting me know about this cool card!**

Catch of the Day: Silver Streak!



This is the super elusive Silver Streak, one of the fishes in the Emperor's Retreat. I was trying to catch this fish for two weeks. Finally I spotted an Ice fish in the front pond and knew right away that it had to be the Silver Streak. You NEVER see any Ice fish in that front pond, so it was clear that it was. So I reeled it in while videotaping it for y'all to watch. It's a super fast fish, believe it or not!



The Sturgeon General is the last fish I need. It better watch out because Kelsey is coming for him!
