Barbaric Beast Contest!

barbaricbeast

A new Grizzly Beast “hoard pack” just came to Pirate101, and it brings lots of Grizzleheim-themed items! If you didn’t see Pirates in the Sky’s guest post on Destiny’s Travels, check it out here! Also, check out Destiny’s post on our blog, here! Grizzleheim is likely to come to Pirate101, so we wanted to brainstorm some ideas for the world!

Pirate101 Card Packs

pack-items2

Pack-a-Palooza launched in Wizard101 less than a week ago, and is due to finish on the 9th. Wizard101 has 12 packs, not counting those that solely give treasure cards (5,) pets/pet items (4,) furniture/other items (2,) officially retired (1,) or seasonal (2.)  This is 26 in all, completely ignoring promotional packs given away by fansites or packs bought without premium currency, Crowns. Pirate101 has 1 card pack, excluding those bought with gold. Many have speculated the release of more packs, the Tribal Crew having come out more than a year ago.

Many other players have created new ideas for packs, and one of my favorites is the Heroic Crew pack posted on the Pirate101.com boards.

It’s Aquilan themed, and suggests Centaur, Satyr, Gladiator, Eagle Sailor, and Ophidian Assassin companions. It has so many well thought out Greek treasures, housing items, and weapons. Who wouldn’t want a Hippocampus mount? Go visit the link posted above if you want to read more into the Heroic Crew Pack.

The next pack is one of my own. It’s MooShu themed, and is named the Tranquil Crew Pack. It consists of mainly Privateers and Swashbucklers, with “ninja” style gear.

Companions you can receive are: Shizu Kana- Duck Scribe (Privateer), Hei Wa- Pig Monk (Swashbuckler), Ka Shi Koi- Cow Follower (Privateer). Housing items include candles, shrines, traditional paintings, etc. Mounts are Jade Wings (epic rarity), Koi Fish (ultra-rare rarity, 5 colors).

There are also some more threads on the official boards brainstorming ideas for new packs/bundles. If you want to see more, just search new game packs on the Pirate101.com message boards. Feel free to suggest your own ideas there or in the comments on this post! 😀
