The Metal Eye Patch is a reward for entering a code received from one of “Avery’s CourtCam” events. These are announced  on Pirate101’s Twitter the day of the event and only last for about 15 minutes. Friendly Thomas, also known as The Friendly Necromancer or One-Eyed Jack will give out a code related to a camera (Cam and Camera have been the two codes as of 2/24) that redeems for an eyepatch.

Those that are there at the predetermined time are recorded using the KingsIsle flyover and posted on Pirate101’s vine account then tweeted.

These types of giveaways are a step in the right direction for KingsIsle! They can keep players entertained while preparing new content updates! Make sure to keep checking Twitter if you want an eyepatch- good luck!

Dueling Diego: The Start of Pirate101 Prizes

Earlier this week, Pirate101 posted on their Twitter account, announcing the release of Pirate101 Prizes on their gaming website, “FreeKIGames.”

Dueling Diego Tweet

Links: Follow Pirate101; #Pirate101; freekigames.com/dueling-diego; Reply to this Tweet; Retweet; Favorite this Tweet

Dueling Diego was previously a Wizard101 game, but now it has switched genres. What does this mean for Pirate101?

Dueling Diego

Dueling Diego is a cartoony game with easy to learn controls. It progressively gets harder and you win a prize based on your score. You have three lives and have to jump over barrels and fight various types of monsters. Prizes are based in a tier-ranked system, but it is currently unknown exactly how tiers are determined. When you complete a game, if your score is high enough, a valid Pirate101 game code and a “Redeem Code” link will appear below your score. Click it, and you will be taken to the Pirate101 website to redeem your code!

PART I: THE GAME & GUIDE

There are four levels in Dueling Diego.

DuelingDiego1

On level 1, your enemies will consist of Blood Bats and Gobblers. It has an abundance of obstacles (barrels) and has a 5-heart Gobbler Pirate boss at the end. Think you can take it on?

Blood Bat

1 health, 100 points. Must hit at same level as blood bat.

Gobbler
3 health, 80 points. Hit the Gobbler before he hits you!

Gobbler Pirate

5 health, 1000 points. Must hit quickly after he raises his sword.

DuelingDiego2

After you’ve left the ship’s hold, there are still barrels rolling around, and you encounter some new enemies. Fight the Fire Elves and the Shield Gobblers to get to the next Gobbler Pirate.

Fire Elf

1 health, 120 points. Jump over his arrows until you can get close enough to hit him with a low attack.

Gobbler (shield)

3 health, 150 points. When you see him, remember where his shield is. Hit that area when you get to him, then switch the place you hit, then switch again.

Gobbler Pirate

See above.

DuelingDiego3

You’ve  swam to the shore of Skull Island, but the natives are acting strangely. Get ready to meet 3 new enemies!

Fire Elf

See above. (120 points)

Nose Goblin

3 health, 200 points. Similar to Fire Elf, just be more cautious of the spears. You can hit with any attack.

Snake

3 health, 200 points. Hit it with the low attack with the right timing, and you won’t be hurt.

Nose Goblin Shaman

5 health, 1000 points. Like a Nose Goblin with more health, and can dodge (move away from) your attacks.

Hint: Once you defeat the Nose Goblin Shaman, don’t go into the cave right away. Stay outside and wait until you have 3 hearts restored.

DuelingDiego4

You’ve cleared the shore, but behind the shaman was a mysterious cave. Francesca is probably in there!

Snake

See above.

Ghoul

4 health, 500 points. Watch out, the ghouls move very fast and can hit you unexpectedly.

Blood Bat (cave)

1 health, 200 points. See above, but moves significantly faster.

Skeleton

3 health, 600 points. Pretty much like the Fire Elf, but you can hit him with any attack. Relatively easy approach- jump over two projectiles he throws then strike. (Repeat, but only jump over one)

Roberto

Unknown health (appears as 1,) 2000 points. He will not be affected by your attacks. Dodge his attacks and let a spike fall on his head.

Falling Stalactite

Watch out for these on the ceiling. They hurt!

PART II: ANALYSIS

Wizard101 has had online minigames (and an app!) for quite a while, starting with KI Free Games and moving to FreeKI Games this October. Doodle Dug, Dueling Diego, and Sorcery Stones started the online code-giving minigame sequence, with WizardBlox, a game like Sorcery Stones, as a mobile app. Later, a revolutionary idea (especially in Wizard101) was released as an app and minigame on KI Free Games which many players joined in. You could train your in-game pets while not having to do tedious, repetitive training games, or while not at the computer! Dueling Diego is a step in the right direction, and would be even more amazing if it were released as an app.

Apps

We may see other popular minigames from Pirate101 launched onto FreeKIGames.com such as Pirate’s Pub or Windjammer, because so far Dueling Diego is a hit.

Dueling Diego gives unique prizes, some that have never been seen before. So far we know you can get furniture, ship equipment, training tomes, or rental mounts.

Items1

From left to right: Small Candle, 2x Pineapple Jug, Wicker Basket, Monkey King Piece, Armor Media

So this means that we may be getting even more new equipment with the coming updates to Pirate101! Test Realm should be coming out soon- we never know what we’ll get!
