Ok, I am back XD

*insert epic music

Hello everyone, Talon Nightshade here, and I am officially back :D. I took a long break due to school and stuff, but I think I can return to the community again. I don't think I post a lot of Wizard101 stuff, as my subscription for it has expired, but I will be able to post a lot of Pirate101 content :). 

Me disguised as a clockwork, albeit a short one ;)


I might change the name of this blog, but the old background absolutely must go lol. Also, I have an interesting blog-post planned for every day of this week, so stay tuned :). Anyhow, I hope you guys are all doing good, and please, don't drink and drive tonight ;).

Happy Magiking!

Where have I been?

Hello Wizards, Pirates, Strategos, Miners, all of you LOL.

Anyway, Sorry I haven't been doing much on this blog for a long time :P But I have a good reason!

So I have been Playing Rome Total war a lot, I think I finally know not to charge my Cataphracts into a phalanx by now XD. (doing that is bad :P). I have also been on the WU minecraft Server, which is not suprisingly really fun :D I built a Factory called "Talon Inc" that has a massive penthouse suite at the top of it with a jacuzzi and reading lounge :D. Now you might ask why did I build this factory. Well I built it for trolling people with traps :P. Long story short, I trolled some people, and now the Server says "Beware of the Traps"LOL. Anyway, I have not gotten a P101 beta key yet, but I wish everyone who got one congrats :D. A small note I wanted to make is that many of the people who got a beta key have gotten a lot of hate. I wanted to address all of those people out there, that do you really think that being mean to people is going to get you a code any faster? By hating, you just proved that you probably don't deserve a key. Anyways, sorry I haven't Posting a lot, and more content to come :)


Happy Magiking :D

Happy Mining :D

Happy Privateering :D

Talon's (kind of) weekly W101 ideas 2, PvP ideas!

Hey guys :) Today I have the newest installment in Talon's weekly W101 ideas. I'm kind of thinking to make this a monthly thing, but who knows?. Anyway, lets get started!

So my ideas are basically trying to improve these two basic, yet crucial, parts of PvP.
  • The Spectator-ship
  • How everything looks( mainly what I am talking here is about the Arenas).
So lets start with "Spectator-ship". So currently you just find a match thats in session and watch. Most of the time you can't get a good view, your character's body and head block the battle. You can maybe bump up against a wall and remove your character from the camera, but your view is still not that good. You can't even see how much health each person has or anything! Something I think that would make watching PvP matches much cooler to watch would be the introduction of a "Arena view". Basically what this would be is a kind of "First Person view" which allowed flying over the arena and the ability to see how much health each player had. Your character would not be show to you and you could look around unhindered around the arena at the battle, while flying around the battle and getting a great view of the battle. They would also be able to get crucial information about the battle and such. I think this idea is quite simple, and would enhance the Spectator experience in PvP. I really think that more people would come to the Arena just to watch a battle lol.

I also wanted to talk about the Arena(s). So currently we have Wizard city, Krokotopia, Marelybone, Mooshu, Dragonspyre, and Grizzelhiem Arena's, but what about all the new worlds that were just discovered? Could you just imagine a Celestia, Wysteria, Zafaria, and Avalon? I had a few ideas of what they could look like:

Celestia- the arena for Celestia would be like a big dome surrounded by water. The floor would be the same type of stone seen in Celestia. here is a picture:

(click to enlarge)
Wysteria arena- It could look like the arena when you fight Randolph to win the Wysteria tournemant. Here is a picture from this awesome site :) : 

                              
(click to enlarge)

Zafaria arena- I think it would be best as the arena in the Sun Palace house. Here is a picture:
                           
(click to enlarge)

Avalon arena- this arena would be basically like a medieval jousting arena with weapon racks on the sides. I don't have any pictures for this one, but you can imagine :P.

So thats pretty much it :P Tell me how you like my ideas in the comments below :) Thanks for reading and.........

Happy Magiking!

Rome 2 Total war announced!

Hey guys, to begin with I want to say this is not a Wizard101 post, but it is still pretty cool :). So as some of you know, I love pretty much all Strategy Games, and the Total war series is my favorite :D. So Today The Creative Assembly announced their next game in the series, Rome 2 Total war, which is the sequel to the Awesome game, Rome Total war! Here are some pictures that were released, I think they are sketches of the game, not the real thing:

1

A Roman Navy attacking a big city with onboard onagers(catapults)

2

A burning city.

Roman Soldiers about to face some Armoured Carthaginian Elephants



I believe this is a Bireme or a Trireme, not sure.


Here are some Videos:



                                

And here are some articles:


I honestly can't wait lol, Rome Total war was one of my favorite Strategy Games, and the sequel just looks awesome :D. The main website for the whole series is here. Rome 2 is expected to come out in 2013.




If you don't know what Rome Total war, or any of the other Total war games are, go to this very informative Wikipedia page, which briefly takes you through each of the 10 games in the series. Here are some pictures of the orginal Rome Total war:


A small Barbarian village

A Carthaginian General with his mounted bodyguards


Parthian Cataphracts charging into battle


A Persian army attacking a Macedonian Army at a river in the Alexander Campaign.


Scippi Romans in Testudo(Turtle) formation.


Seleucid War elephants marching across a coastline

If you want to find out more information, there are countless videos of Rome total war on youtube. Thanks :)



Laudem Romam duo totalis bellum!

First Person to find out what that means and comments below will get a KI free game code ;). I will just say that the Google Translate has a Latin to English Translator :)


Felix Magiking!
(Happy Magiking in Latin ;) )

Unknown areas in the Spiral(Spiral Jigsaw post)

Hello fellow wizards! Today I have a Spiral Jigsaw post :). I wanted to Discuss Unknown areas in the Spiral. I'm not talking about new worlds, I am talking about areas in already discovered worlds that are not used. This is going to be Picture-Caption post btw. And just click to enlarge any of the photos :).

Wizard City

Lets start In Wizard city, Shall we? One of the first areas that I wanted to talk about was "The Restricted Sections" of the library. It looks seemingly like a long dark hallway illuminated every few feet by blue lamps and has statues of unicorn's heads. I remember when I first started playing Wizard101 Boris Tallstaff used to stand right there. He said something like "You are not allowed to go there, Young Wizard" I believe. There are 3 or 4 "corridors" of restricted books I believe. I wonder if eventually we will be able to access the "restricted section". I also want to make note of the "book transporting system" at the right of the picture. If you look at it they seem to go up out of the ceiling. On further inspection of the exterior I noticed that The Library actually has 2 floors and 3 towers. Maybe those will be accessible in the future.


This is just a random picture I took of the painting lol. It is a pig that is being painted like a Mona Lisa, but It doesn't look like the Pigswick pigs or the Mooshu Pigs, so I assume there is another Pig related world. Pigs have a lot to do with Wizard101 lol.


Now I noticed these 2 doors on the 2nd floor of the library, and I wonder if this is the entrance's to 2 of the towers.


In Olde Town next to Baldur Goldpaw's ship is an unused Tower. There is one near it that houses Foulgaze, so I wonder if this tower will make an appearance in a later quest.


This is another random picture lol, but this time was just to share the view :)


This is another unused Tower in Wizard city. I bet that in a later quest it will make an appearance.


Now in the Haunted cave, you've probably seen the Death school marked cage-like cave next to Stormdrain tower. I used to think that this was an entrance to Nightside when I was a smaller level lol, but I don't think so anymore. Its not just like some random tower though, this couldn't just be here for aesthetics. I bet that it will either play a role in the Main Morganthe storyline, or be a part of a Death school spell quest.


This is another great view I found behind Storm drain tower. Enjoy :D

Krokotopia


This is pretty much the only picture I have for Krokotopia lol. I think most of you know the special teleporter in the Oasis that opens up every half hour to take you to the Shopping island. I took this picture from their lol. Anyway, You can see the Island over there. It has no use currently I believe, but I want all of you to remember the words that the boss at the top of Briskbreeze tower said, Krokotopia was next. Even though Briskbreeze Tower was introduced a few years back, I still think that's what that tower could be used for. Or it could be a Shopping island just like this one, because looking at the architecture on it, it looks like one of the shops down below.

Marelybone 


Just one picture for Marelybone lol. This is Barkingham Palace, home of the Queen of Marelybone. It does not have any purpose at present, but I believe that it could be in a later quest. 

Mooshu


Another Single picture lol. Anyway, there are towers like this all around Mooshu that are unused. I know that a boss fight can happen in each because if you watched my latest youtube video you might have noticed that Mika Skarka was in one of these. They look really cool though :P

Dragonspyre


Dragonspyre is an interseting place. They have a lot of areas which are not accessible. This is a random house on the street, but I know that NPC can be inside because in the Drake Hatchery I believe you go inside one of them and help a ghost.


This is a picture of the Grand chasm in the present. All those vault's could have Boss's in them.


Same thing for here.


This is another house except surrounded by a lava pool. What I don't understand is that why would the walkway be there before the destruction of DS, as it seems to be built before the Dragon Titan destroyed everything.


Now this is a picture of those big courtyard areas at the end of the streets. I know bosses could be inside these because The level 78 spell quest boss called the Hoarder was located in one of these.


This is another random house. LOL


This is a picture of another Courtyard.

Celestia


Now even though there is only picture for Celestia, it is a interesting one. Now as some of you know, some of the areas in Celestia are marked by a door with dots. I don't know which is which at the moment but it goes like One, Two Three, and Four. Now this is the Fourth door, but It doesn't have any use. If this Door Four is somehow opened, it doesn't seem like it would have a simple boss fight in there. As all the other dotted and numbered doors open up to actual areas, I wonder if this does too.

Zafaria 


In Zafaria there isn't a lot of unknown areas, but the ones I found were interesting nonetheless. Above you see what appears to be the statue of a Gorilla in Baobab Crossroads. Now I want to just point out that next to the Savannah gate there is a Lion statue, Next to the Zamunda Gate there is a Zebra statue, and next to the gate to the Baobab Market there is a Elephant statue. The statues correspond to the areas they live in, lions live in the Savannah, Zebra's live in Zamunda, and Elephants live in Stone town/ Waterfront. Gorillas live in the Drum jungle, but This statue is not near any gate to the Drum Jungle. Its just there lol. I believe that KI will put the gate next to it eventually, because at the moment it takes quite a hike to get to the Drum jungle( Through Baobab Market, Through Stone Town, and finally Through the Waterfront).


Inside Boabab Market there is a building next to the Stone Town Boat "Gate". It doesn't serve any purpose at the moment, but I assume that its a trading building of some sort, as 

1. It looks like Stone town architecture, and Stone Town is a big trade area.
                         2. It is right next to the river      
I also want to point out that the Monkee(Thats how its spelled lol) for Zeke's quest is right behind the building ;)
  

Wysteria


If you look at the Wysteria map, you might notice that we are not being shown the whole world. Around Pigswick academy these gates are found. They look just like the gates that is opened to get to Pegasus Place. I wonder that in a later update they will expand on Wysteria.


Another gate :)


Well that's it lol, these are all the hidden place I could find lol. Feel free to find some more and tell me, and I will update this post ;). 

Happy Magiking!
