"A guide for contests? Has she lost her mind?" you might say as you see my first post in quite a while...

The Tower of Moo Manchu: Repeating History and Moving Forward

The Tower of Moo Manchu has been out for a rather short time and it's already a hotly debated subject; satisfaction was greatly mixed and discussion has spread like wildfire. Curious, I decided to go a little deeper and figure out what triggered this varied and passionate reaction.

Fool-proof Farming

Is Rooke being especially stingy with you? Just can't catch a break in the Metal Guardian's temple? Perhaps you're left in the dust as you watch all your friends gather every piece of Captain Blood's outfit while you're still trying to muster the patience to do the dungeon more than once? Well look no further than this post! This week we're going to discuss some great tactics that you can use in your grueling hours of farming bosses for drops. While these techniques won't guarantee your success, you can tip the odds in your favor considerably.

You may also be wondering why these methods have never been discussed before. That's because a few of us have been doing extensive research during this toned-town time before the big release of updates coming this spring to Pirate101. You will find at the bottom of my guide a list of links to my fellow bloggers who have also been hard at work to bring you the latest in farming strategy.

Vlog Post: Dueling Diego

Ahoy! I hope everyone's having a good weekend and tanking up on celebratory weekend Yum. This week we're doing something a little different. I wanted to do a sort of guide/personal experience post for Dueling Diego but felt like yet another guide, as I did with the Hoodoo bundle and its contents last week, would be boring, so I made this post very video-heavy with a little text to support it. So without further ado, watch the video below and enjoy!

Hoodoo Bundle Review

Hello Pirates- as you've probably already heard, Pirate101 announced a new $29 bundle available at Walmarts across the US: the Hoodoo Bundle! If you remember the last $29 bundle, it had an awesome outfit, an exciting new kind of housing item but an only so-so companion and ship (disclaimer! I still love having Handsome Dan as part of my crew, but it's true that I would still choose other companions over him, and the ship is fun because of its unique silver trim, but it's hard to mix and match ship parts). So I would like to let you guys know my thoughts on the bundle so that you can decide whether you believe it's worth it for you or not.

Moving In

Exciting news! I have (for the most part) moved to Blogger! It was time for something new, and I was drawn by how versatile Blogger is compared to the limited set of options Weebly gave me. Blogger will also be way, way cheaper for when I'm ready to go all out and buy my .com domain. So now, aside from unpacking a few small boxes of things, fiddling with the new banner until I'm completely satisfied and touching up a few more pages, Cdre. Chucklesworth and I will be living here and blogging about our adventures and thoughts on the game.

I already have a few posts planned out, so stay tuned for those!
