Pirate101 Test Realm Party

There will be a party in the Pirate101 Test Realm later today! There's nothing to really test in the Test Realm... but the Test Realm itself! Basically, there's a new hardware configuration for the Test Realm, and KingsIsle would like to do a bit of stress testing.

KingsIsle will swing open the doors at 4:00PM CST, and One-Eyed Jack will be dropping turrets in the Skull Island Skyway of the Test Realm. There will also be a limited time code broadcast while in the Test Realm that will only be good for an hour or two; we may even do some Pet Sparring and take a few pictures! You'll have access to the usual 15,000 Crowns of fake Test Realm money, so Pirates can play around with that as well during the party.

Party Details
Who: Everyone who meets the Test Realm qualifications found here;
What: Party in the Test Realm;
Where: Skull Island Skyway to start and then possibly over to Bestia;
Why: Test Realm Hardware Testing and to have a bit of fun at the same time;
When: Thursday (2/23/2017) at 4:00PM US Central.

How's that for a bit of unexpected excitement this week?! Come join in the fun!

Friendship Festival Contests

February is the time of the year when we celebrate friendships in the Spiral! Valentina Heartsong will return to her usual spot in the Wizard City Shopping District, near the fountain, shortly before Valentine's Day. And to start off the Friendship Festival, here are two Wizard101 and Pirate101 contests!

Friendship Spell Contest
Create a Friendship Festival spell that Valentina Heartsong could teach you, using Legends of the Spiral's CardMaker tool to create your spell. It has to represent the essence of friendship somehow and can be anything from a damage spell, charm, enchantment, ward, etc.!

Update: due to Legends of the Spiral's website maintenance, the deadline for this contest has been extended until February 22nd, at 4:00PM CST!

Companion Drawing Contest
Create the perfect companion for the Friendship Festival! What would it look like? Using your creativity, draw this companion in any way you like (it can be digital art, a painting or using a pencil) and give it a name.

Both contests start now!  The Companion Drawing Contest ends on February 18th, at 4:00PM CST, and the Friendship Spell Contest on February 22nd, at 4:00PM CST! All you have to do is send your entry by email to, with the appropriate subject for the contest you are entering (like "Friendship Spell Contest"). You can enter both contests, but only one entry per contest is allowed! Please, include your Wizard's or Pirate's name in the email (such as David SilverHunter).

Each contest will reward six winners in total: 1 Grand Prize, 2 Second Places and 3 Runner-Up prizes. Without further ado, here's the list of prizes for each contest:

Grand Prize (1 winner)
10,000 Non-transferrable Crowns + Lovely Leopard + Bunny Hug

Second Place (2 winners)
5,000 Non-transferrable Crowns + Lovely Ladybug + Huggle Hoggle

Runner-Up Prizes (3 winners)
1,000 Non-transferrable Crowns + Cupig + Friendship Grouper

Entries will be judged on originality and creativity, so have fun and good luck!

Wizard101 Level 118 School Pets

The January episode of KingsIsle Live brought about some great news for Wizard101 and Pirate101, but I will focus on one specifically.

Back in November, a Wizard101 player asked KingsIsle when they would be releasing new school pets, since there were none in the Mirage update. Professor Falmea replied that they are planning on adding new pets really soon, and the very first level 118 pet was then revealed on KingsIsle Live:

  • The Raincore is an adorably cute cloud pet that Diviners will get in a future update.

Yesterday, Community Manager Tom Purdue and Senior Producer Leah Ruben made clear that the next update will be a minor one, so I doubt that these pets will be added then. Still, they decided to unveil yet another new one during the livestream:

  • The Kookaburapictured below, is the forthcoming pet for the Life school.

Which pet do you want to see next? Do you like the ones revealed so far? Leave a comment below and let me know!
