I would like to be able to use a set mark like in wizard. It would be so helpful when doing quests far from each other especially if you don't have a land mount.

Thanks

with so little time to choose a face, clothes, a good pirate name, I kept getting timed out for inactivity before I could make my flag. SO, I rushed it and after seeing all the wonderful flags out there I really wish for $5 or $10 in crowns I could change my flags and dye my companion clothes to match.

A good thing to put would be a way to mark your spot like in W101. I know you can return to skull island then teleport back, but that button won't last long :/
It should be that you mark your location, go ANYWHERE in the spiral, and still be able to return back. It's better cause it has an X just like X marks the spot. Plz KI, add that feature. It's painful to have to sail your ship so many places and the possible income of dying while your at it.

I have noticed how the main ideas for Wizard 101 and ideas about rooms on ships have been repeated a lot. This thread will be really useful because then people can check before posting another thread about something that has been mentioned a lot. Thanks.

How about being able to sideline some of the companions? i didnt see this idea on the thread and i know i have seen it before on other threads. just really dislike having my 1% companions show up during a really hard ship battle.

I have a suggestion. Take all the features from Wizard101 and put them in Pirate101. Most of these features that are being asked for are from Wizard101.

P.S. I have seen a few posts recently about "capturing enemy ships". I'd like to see that so if anyone else who reads this wants it too, help us out.

I like the idea of letting you place companions at your house(like furniture but with their tavern animations). though it would make it very hard to pick, some of the ones that look best, are the ones i use to fight with most often

No, please don't take the features from Wizard101 and put them in Pirate 101. Let them be their own separate games.

Some of us stopped playing W101 for a reason even before the release of P101.

But the idea about capturing enemy ships, that's a good one!

My friends and I would love to see the ability to enter our ship's cabins and furnish them with items we have either earned or purchased. As sea-going people it is only natural to spend time in the Captain's Cabin so why not allow us to decorate and furnish it to our liking as well as allow us to see below-decks? Please add the feature of access to the Captain's Cabin on our ships.

Adding a Bazaar/Auction House would be really great. It'll me more conveint and I can find more suitable items for a cheaper price then the original. A Flag/Companion Dyeing store would also be really great. While picking out my flag colors I didn't realize it would affect my companions until later notice. (If I read and listen I would have been informed on this during character creating) My emblem looks plain and my colors don't actually scream Privateer.

I really like how P101 is coming together. I can't wait to see what Kingisle has is later years.

The ability to tour houses?!

I was thinking about the auction house. You know those free traders that are in different lands? You could make them auctioneers. Could still work like a auction house though be where ever there are those free traders.

Not sure if anyone has posted this yet, but what about more weapon varieties in general? not just type like smashy/stabby, but different sets. like epic sets and what not. Like whole sets in wiz101.

second, what about a way to save a spot and port back to it...even if we do leave skull island. talkintheplank mentions this in his podcast. there are three ways to get to skull island, how about make it easier to port around?

It would be really nice if we could dismiss companions we don't find useful. It's really hard when you have so many companions and companion training points are so hard to come by. Either that or raise the amount of training points you get as you level up (since you have more companions, more training points would be welcome).

I would also like to see the ability to remove abilities from your "dock". I have so many abilities that are obsolete now, but they still end up taking up space when I need the stronger spells quickly. You can't unlearn them, because then you lose the stronger spells.

I second these ideas as well.

In addition, I would like to see travel times reduced. Surely after one has visited a place or completed key quests, the option to travel quickly to the area should be offered. The more advanced I get in the game, the more completely bored I get with travel. I find myself leaving my computer to do little tasks. I am completely removed from game immersion.

Great list!

Here is my input on some of the ideas that were already presented, roughly in order of how important that are to me:
  • I hope the Auction House comes out soon!
  • The ability to scroll through special abilities during combat would be great. Alternately the ability to designate the order in which they appear, or even the ability to filter older/less powerful skills out so they don't show up in your list in the first place would be better than it is now.There could be a limit of say 10 or so skill slots (increasing as you level?) that you choose to have available in combat. (I know this is similar to the current capability of being able to right click and remove unwanted abilities, but I would rather do this ahead of time than have to remove them in every combat.) I disagree that this would be unbalancing. What's the point in traing/upgrading your skills if you can't use the skills you need in a given situation? It is already 'balanced' to the extend that you can only use these abilities once per battle. I like the 'chess game' feel of this over the 'card game' feel of Wizard101. Let's keep our weapons available please.
  • A Captain's Quarters room on a ship would make MUCH more sense to me than any other housing in a game that is based on pirates and ships. I understand that ship upgrades could make this a challenge, but I wouldn't mind if the basic room was on a ship, and followed you to whatever ship you are using.
  • The tavern cellar Crew room would make more sense to me to be available through your ship. It would not need to be a 'housing' type room where you could place object, but it could just grow as your crew grows, rougly approximating your ship size.
  • My daughter would also love more female crewmates.
  • The ability to park crewmates that you don't want to use in battles would be nice. I seem to see the 3% range crewmates come up more often than the 20% reange crewmates for some reason.
  • Looking forward to cardpacks, more housing items, housing previews...

I agree. It is a real time killer, and is rather unfair to children who have time limits on the computer (like my daughter) when she has to waste 15 minutes traveling between "worlds" on the ship.

What I really, really, really, REALLY, want for you to add in Pirate101 is to have our Companions roam freely around in our homes, so that they'll walk around the houses, and we can have conversations between our Companions, ask them questions, talk to them about our current adventures so far, their histories, and plenty more! Put this request as a must-have request, if you please! I would LOVE to talk to our Companions so much!
