What’s so good about Pirate101? Every time we make a post about this game, it’s a new opportunity to use pirate-speak.
Avast ye scallywags and pay attention to KingsIsle’s Jay Gordon, who’s got a new producer’s letter for the powder monkeys who play the game.
Amid raising the flag and giving a pep talk to the crew, Gordon does slip some scuttlebutt about what’s coming to Pirate101 this year: “Looking ahead, 2013 is going to offer a veritable treasure trove of all-new pirate adventures and we can’t wait to unveil new worlds, quests, game play features, ships, equipment and the wide variety of companions and fantastic combat attacks now in the works.”
Adriacraft have been at it again, datamining what is believed to be the containing zone for an element of the warlock-specific “green fire quest” area. On first look, the zone itself, though not the map, appears to bear a striking visual resemblance to the zone in which the Obsidian Sanctum raid takes place, but with additional items added.
It seems from a brief glance at Wowhead’s warlock-specific quests that the majority of the currently known quests refer, as expected, to the Black Temple, without mentioning another zone. Could this “island” be an instanced area accessed from within the Black Temple? It looks far too fiery for that to me at least, but with the little we know about the Council of the Black Harvest, also known as the Council of Six Daggers, and their ties to other, older zones, it could be that this is some area associated with that group.
What do you think? I know I’m really pleased I leveled my warlock, these quests look really exciting, even with our very limited knowledge of how it will all unfurl. Do note, as ever, that this is datamined information, and place an according amount of weight upon it. Let’s hope this leads to more class-specific quests in future!
We just reserved our copy of the book and two other copies for out customers for an upcoming contest!
