Awesome Things in KingsIsle Games


Today is the International Day of Awesomeness and in response to Dworgyn's post on the awesome things about Wizard101 and Pirate101, I decided to list some of the very best things for me. In no particular order, this is what I consider the cream of the crop in both games:

#1 - Housing
The amount and variety of houses and housing items available to both Pirates and Wizards is just awesome! And in my time in the Spiral, I have seen some pretty cool houses, full of awesome glitches and details. The possibilities to create and decorate are simply endless!

#2 - Pets and Companions
The plethora of companions, pets, hybrids and talents at our disposal make this one of the most awesome things in both games! They boost your stats and help you in combat. Can you still remember questing through Sunken City, without pets by your side? It was pretty lonely back then.

#3 - Free Crowns
Who doesn't like those? Contests are held regularly and Crowns are often awarded as prizes to players! You can also earn Crowns directly in-game, by playing Trivia or inviting friends. 

#4 - Fishing
One of the most awesome additions to Wizard101 since the game was released, back in September 2008! There are so many fish to catch and getting some of them can be very challenging. Definitely a side activity to try out, if you haven't already!


#5 - Non-Player Characters
There are some awesome NPCs in the Spiral, and some of my favorites are Allan GhostDust, Grandmother Raven, Lydia Greyrose, Dyvim WhiteHart, Sofia DarkSide, Madame Vadima and Miracle Mitch. Their different and mysterious personalities make them even more interesting!

#6 - Spiral Worlds
The Spiral contains countless worlds and areas to explore. Over the years, I have seen KingsIsle developers outdo themselves over and over, releasing some mesmerizing worlds with stunning graphics and details! Some of my favorite places in the Spiral include Aquila, Wysteria, Wintertusk, Alto Alto in Azteca, Shadow Palace and most of Khrysalis, Cool Ranch and the Pirate101 version of Marleybone!

What are some of your favorite awesome things in Pirate101 and Wizard101? Leave a comment below and let me know!
