Spotlight on Community Leaders

Really amazing stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

KingsIsle Blog

Sponsoring giveaways, answering questions, and keeping players up to date on the latest game news are just a few of the many tasks our wonderful community managers are faced with on a daily basis!ย  Today we ask Wizard101โ€™s Professor Greyrose and Pirate101โ€™s One-Eyed Jack a few questions about what itโ€™s like to be a community manager at KingsIsle.

What made you want to work with the gaming community?

Professor Greyrose: Like others, I came from being a community leader and working on the press side for another game, to being a Community Manager for KingsIsle. Being engaged in a game and being a part of its community is definitely a driving factor in wanting to work with the players.

One-Eyed Jack: KingsIsle is notorious for having the most amazing communities out thereโ€”of course, Iโ€™m partial since I came directly from the grassroots of the Wizard101 community myself. Being the Pirate101โ€ฆ

A littl’ but ’bout LEGO Universe… PART 2

It was a while ago, but here’s the part 1.

LEGO Universe was an amazing game with fantastic potential, there were only 7 worlds, each with different goals and variation of lengths, but I could’ve spent the rest of my gaming life in that MMO, it was such a shame it shut in January 2012.

It has been just over a year since LU closed it’s doors, and many other LU blogs have celebrated this with a tribute to the game, and in memory to every player. It was a sad day for nearly every LEGO fan, and that constant feeling that the game will never return and the families who played will lose all their progress and friends.

One of the many fantastic parts of the game was the ability to create your own property and share it with other LU players around the world:

LEGO_Universe_2011-10-13_17-57-28 LEGO_Universe_2011-10-31_10-35-42 LEGO_Universe_2011-06-27_16-18-45Some of the architectural creations of the community where astonishing. You can view the Hall of Fame here.

There were many beautiful and scenic worlds in the LEGO Universe, Avant Gardens, Nimbus Station, Gnarled Forest, Forbidden Valley, Nexus tower, Crux Prime and Ninjago. There were also so many suggested, through concept art and hints in dialogue. I would’ve loved to see those worlds, some of them looked so exciting and potentially fabulous. I sometimes have daydreams of exploring these worlds, scurrying through the side alleys of Youreeka and avoiding the lava trails in the Ninjago Fire temple, they keep me happy and “sane”.

My friends were what inspired me to keep hope in the game, we had a group of really close friends that I will never forget. Joshi88, Bravelin, CrazyChic and me. We were the Faction four, because each of us were a different faction.

Only to mention a few, everyone was fantastic and kind. The report button was barely ever used.

Thank you everyone for a wonderful year of my life, it was one of the best.

Character Update!

Sorry, yes any readers out there in the blue, I haven’t been that active on the blog. Y’see, I have a blog over on central, and I use that more (Click the llama on the sidebar to see it), so this hasn’t crossed my mind recently. I have also been very busy with “life” as well, gaming, homework, W101 central, homework and a lot more.

And of course, I have of course had time to level on Pirate101. But not wizard101, haven’t had membership for a while (I may redeem some soon :D). So here’s a character update!

Pirate101:

Oh and another thing, I’m struggling to get this blog off the ground a bit, I only receive comments now and again from common readers. If you read this, I’d be ever so grateful if you comment, subscribe and tell your friends ๐Ÿ™‚ It’ll be much appreciated!

Shamans Hoard Pack!

From Wizard101.com

Shaman’s Lore
Game Card Pack

New Spells from the
Shaman’s Lore Pack!

The Shaman’s Lore pack is now available in the Crown Shop, and with it your Wizard has a chance to gain new spells like the Winter Moon, Savage Paw and Lord of the Night! There’s also a chance to get other cool new items including…

  • Armor Sets, like Proud Jaguar Armor
  • Weapons, like the Prismatic Volcanic Axe
  • Leaf Foot Pet
  • Bobbleheads
  • Housing Items
  • And much more!
ย 
Buy Crowns

The spells from the Shaman’s Lore Pack are reward spells, and do not cost your Wizard a training point. They will go into your spellbook just like any spell you have learned from a trainer, and they will not disappear when you sell your spells back for Training Points with Mr. Lincoln. They will obey the rules of a normal spell, meaning you can blade, trap, enchant etc. If you receive a spell from the Shaman’s Lore Pack, it will not appear as a reward again on that character. You cannot delete or sell these special spells.

Winter Moon Spell

Savage Paw Spell

Lord of Night Spell

Powerpips & Shaman’s Lore Spells

Shaman’s Lore Pack spells will obey the rules of pips and powerpips. If you are a Myth Wizard and receive a Myth spell it will use your pips and powerpips accordingly. If you are a Balance Wizard and receive a Myth spell, it will use your pips & powerpips accordingly. If you are wearing a Myth Mastery Amulet, it will use your pips & power pips accordingly.

Looks exciting! I can’t wait to see all those new spells and gear in action ๐Ÿ™‚
