New Holiday Pack Would Have Been Nice for Pirates

I don't want to belittle the effort of providing new holiday skins for mounts in Pirate101, however, since both Wizard and Pirate are sharing the 12 Days page, it really kind of is a letdown to see all of the cool new stuff that wizards are getting, while our pirates are not.

I play both games, so I'll see the stuff either way, but anyone who is leaning Pirate, or solely Pirate, is feeling a tad envious at this point, I would imagine.

I t does seem a bit like the jealousy of the little brother for his older sibling.

I just saw the pack and I must say, I'm a tad annoyed - I want an ice skating rink and glitter globe! ( *Throws tantrum*. You don't love me as much as my brother! )

Yes I suppose you could say I'm feeling a wee bit envious being one of those players who only plays Pirate, but it wouldn't be the first time that Wizard101's content has showed up Pirate's. Well, the 12 days aren't over yet so maybe KI will make it up. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

While I'm pleased to hear that we're getting a few more decorations on Skull Island, it does seem a bit cheesy we don't rate a holiday pack. Revenues come from product, and a pack could reasonably be expected to generate a bit more crowns flow for Pirate101. We already have some Wizardly furniture ported over; how difficult is it to port in a few more things? You could recycle some of the snack art (yes, I know you'd have to make it fit the Pirate categories), and maybe some ship equipment (more exciting, ship equipment for things like the Beluga ship or the other holiday-specific ships). You could even make the ship gear the chase cards for the set. Offer a dye-able crystal mount and a piratical snowman pet (okay, that one would be trickier -- re-skin a pet you already have animations for) in the pack as well. Since it's a holiday pack and only around a short while each year, you could even have one particularly desirable crew member for the super lucky pirate to discover.

Sigh. I'll go sob into my mug of mulled yum while I watch the wizards gleefully rip through their third seasonal pack.

Yep, this last one, they got cute rabbits pulling a sleigh and we get....more horses.

But at least the new crystal mounts are prettier! The class-colors are not great combinations when applied to the crystal mounts.

Would be nice to have a holiday pack.

Take the starting companions, reskin 'em in Santa and or elf suits, and ler 'er rip!

And not just any horse. Crystal horses, that once again are not dye-able. At least the white one with the blue mane and tail is an attractive color combo. The colors they chose as the witch doctor's main colors always make me wince when I see them together.

Yes, and to avoid any further tantrums from little brother Pirate, KI should put some serious thought into giving us a pack at least in the next 12 days of the spiral.

Wizard has 3 packs for the yuletide holiday and Pirate currently has none, but hey, I'm hopeful and still very thankful for what we've gotten! :) In my opinion the free mount was better than the dungeon (which we only got one free key for) xD

Pirate101 deserves more attention... just because Wizard101 has more players it doesn't mean there is no chance not to make P101 great again (let me know if you get the joke )

Plus that holiday dungeon contains a horribly OP boss ( with cheats ) and is impossible to solo! You're right, a free mount trumps that every time.

Yeah I do get the joke (hah,hah very funny) but wouldn't that be implying that Pirate101 isn't great currently? I do agree though that Pirate101 could use just a bit more attention maybe.

Seriously? Wizard101 is getting their third holiday pack? That's a bit too much, if you ask me. Is it too much to ask Kingsisle to make a little holiday pack for us? I wouldn't mind at all if it had some imported Wizard101 housing, pet, and/or clothing stuff, with some reskinned stuff here and there, and maybe some reskinned holiday-style companions, and bam- you got yourself a nice little Christmas pack for the holidays.

Like other players, I was a bit angry when I saw the wizards got a horde of even more stuff and all we got were just 3 new mounts.

Really, enough with the bombardment of horses. We got plenty of them now.

Krampus Bells,

Ambrose has been scuppered.
Avery snuck into his office and locked him in the cupboard!
Just some good natured ribbing of Pirates 'older brother'.

True it is already great, but I mean great for other players to see, like for KI to add another pack to Pirate101 so wizards see what amazing this P101 has

Here's another for you:

I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas.
Boochbeard and Gandry are mad,
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Chirstmas,
Cuz I ain't been nuttin' but bad!

I crashed my raft on Blood Shoals' dock
I stole a ring on Scorpion Rock,
I picked that second Group Chest lock,
and Blind Mew snitched on me!

I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas.
Boochbeard and Gandry are mad,
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Chirstmas,
Cuz I ain't been nuttin' but bad!

Spilled some ink on Avery's rug,
I made Ratbeard eat a bug,
I paid Decius with a slug,
and Blind Mew snitched on me!

Next year, I'll be going straight,
Next year, we'll be good, just wait!
Could start now, but it's too late,
Blind Mew snitched on me...

Yeah we could use a reason to rub something in those wizards faces (one of these days we'll get an opportunity to do just that, mark my words!).

ooo what about having a certain pack occasionally drop a few crowns? 1-25 no more than that.. I think it'd have to be a limited-time pack such as a holiday pack.. one you'd naturally buy for yourself and others.. bursts of gold up to 5000 be great too..

other fun piratey holiday stuff.. candy cane cannons(both home and ship)(home one shoots confetti), candy cane anchor(for ship but a wall-hanging be neat too), candy cane lightpoles for home walkways, elf hats with ears and beards, placeable skating rink but LARGER because we have larger yards, outdoor icicle lights, candy cane peg-leg pants, LARGE moving snowman(even better if could build and decorate), holiday music player, holiday music scrolls, GIANT snow pile that still easily stacks with current ones, holiday curtains and tablecloths, an interactive placeable snow mini-mountain with ice slides and baby penguins that flip and slide, new holiday papers could include laughing reindeer w/red noses and snow falling, candy cane stripes.. icy bamboo privacy fences, cherry blossum trees, iced willow trees, star chandoliers, holiday bunkbed, holiday bed&bathroom set, a hangable candy cane bookshelf, LARGER spiral trees, yum barrel with spiggot and red bow, large bowl of sugared yum fruits, playable peppermint drum set, wooden rocking horse(interactive), Penguin NPCs, MB NPC scullery maid, buildable LARGE outdoor train set, interactive ship whistle, peppermints flooring(not stripes but round peppermints like larger cobblestone?), 2 new holiday pets a gumdrup and a baby blue penguin with a hat.
