Catch the Birthday Mystery Fish
There's a rare new fish in town creeping in the waters of the Spiral! The Gobblerfish is a Balance, seasonal fish and will only be around during the Wizard101 Birthday Celebration month... You can find it swimming in the calm waters of Unicorn Way and Ravenwood. Can you catch it?

You Choose My Next Wallpaper

As you already know, I've created several custom Wallpapers for both Wizard101 and Pirate101, and I'm now focusing on Schools of Magic in Wizard101. When I'm done with them, I will start working on Pirate101 wallpapers, but not necessarily on Pirate Classes first. I have a few ideas right now, but we'll see how things go.

Feedback is important to me and I take it very seriously. That being said, after creating wallpapers for Balance, Life, Storm and Shadow Magic, I would like to know which wallpaper my readers want to see next. Please, cast your vote in the poll below.

Guide to Getting Energy Elixirs on Grub Guardian

With so many fun activities requiring Energy in the Spiral, like Gardening, Fishing and Pet training, it can be tough to focus on more than one of these in a single day, either because you have extensive gardens that need to be tended to, or because you're training a Pet to Mega.

Energy Elixirs are a breath of fresh air when you're out of Energy. While they're not particularly expensive, I like to save on those and try to get them for free. The amount of Crowns you save overtime can be spent on that special Crown Shop item you really want, Hoard Packs or Mega Snack Packs, or even to unlock the Map Packs in Grub Guardian.

Trying to get free Energy Elixirs is a great motivation to play Grub Guardian. My personal favorite map to win these is Pegasus Place. This map is included in the Wysteria Map Pack, which is available for 649 Crowns in the Grub Guardian Crown Shop.

Why Pegasus Place?
It's a fairly easy and fast map, that only requires an Epic Life pet and two Guardians to earn a Gold Medal score, and have a chance at an Energy Elixir prize.

What do I need for Pegasus Place?
  • Wysteria Map Pack (649 Crowns);
  • Avalon Guardian (499 Crowns).

How to get a Gold Medal
Like I said, the only requirement to get a Gold Medal on this map is having a Life Pet at least at Epic, and two Avalon Guardians.

Start off by placing your Pet and the first Avalon Guardian as shown below. The amount of Silver you have doesn't allow you to place the second Guardian just yet, but you won't need it right away so long as you upgrade your currently placed Guardian to Rank 2, before hitting the "Go" button.

Place your second Avalon Guardian right next to the first one when you have enough Silver, and upgrade them gradually and take them up to Lady of the Lake (Rank 5).

Tip: On this specific map, avoid upgrading both Guardians at the same time, unless the enemies on the map are Goblins; those are slow and the cooldown allows you to defeat them before they can get to the food.

You should have a Gold Medal at the end and your score should be around 5,625. If you didn't get an Energy Elixir on your first try, don't give up. You will get one before you know it!

Pirate101 Test Realm Opens

The wait is over! After a long overdue Pirate101 game update, the doors to Test Realm finally open with a "nefarious" dungeon waiting to be tested and much, much more!

The Tower of Moo Manchu
If you have completed all of Mooshu (including the quest "The Great and Powerful Turtle"), as well as the side quest, "Emperor Moo", you will find a new quest from the Town Crier (or from Lord Chagatai himself) to embark upon a dangerous, and very profitable, adventure into The Tower of Moo Manchu! This ten level tower is full of danger and is meant for groups of players to bond together in the quest for rare loot, multiplayer chests, special badges, and to survive the nefarious trials that await you as you attempt to conquer the Tower of Moo Manchu. There's even a special badge!

Cool Ranch Revamp
You'll be happy to know a new fast transport service is now available in Cool Ranch to help players travel quickly from skyway to skyway. Drop by the docks of Cooper's Roost, Bison Village, Junction, Santo Pollo, Tumbleweed, and Fort McMurtry to give the Stagecoach a try!

Ship Emblem Alteration Service
A long-requested feature from players is finally making its way to the skyways of Pirate101. There's a new Ship Emblem Alteration service being offered for Crowns, by a new character named Major Flagstaff, who can be found in the back of the Auction House!  

Team Up!
This feature allows players to find other players that want to play the same dungeon - even if they're in different realms. Approach a dungeon and click X to enter the sigil as normal. But if the dungeon is eligible for "Team Up!", you'll see a new menu asking you to choose how to proceed.

These are just a few of the game updates coming to Pirate101 really soon and ready to be tested! Find out more about these, Doubloon Trading, Stackable Items and much more in the Game Updates.
