Well for one thing the wizzards stand around in a circle, wave their arms a bit, and that's largely that. Pirates run all over the place putting the boot in, while being shot, fried, thumped, folded, slashed, stabbed, bombed and generally abused in return. Pirate is a much more animated game (in both senses of the word).

Then there are our companions, each of which has to have its attack animations designed as well as the reactions to being shot, fried, thumped, folded, slashed... well, you get the idea.

Well, then again, do you know what the results of the simple hand movements are? An over the top, dramatic, well animated spell.

Also there is a lot more content in Wizard101. No one could reasonably argue that there is not.

A Polaris themed pack would go nicely, but I would only expect one if a Polaris world update is released. Still, any idea is appreciated. The Ashes of the Armada pack had Dragonspyre/Darkmoor/Krokotopia styled weapons and housing items.

You know, they could've not given us this pack. Would you have been happier if they held onto it for a week or two to smash some bugs? This is the first pack we've had in three years, so why should all of you be complaining? Sure, there's some issues, but it doesn't necessarily render the pack a complete bust. Hopefully, as TheyMayBeBears said, the developers are taking a look at these bugs and fixing them.

But still, if I were a developer on KI, I would be getting a wee bit frustrated hearing the complaints. It's something, something that we haven't had in years. I find it rather ironic that at the beginning of this post, everyone was celebrating it. Now, no one has anything good to say about it at all.

I'm sorry about that. With game packs in general, it's a gamble, but from what I've seen, you have a higher chance at getting a companion in this pack than in the Ashes of the Armada pack. You've just hit a stroke of bad luck, which I understand. I had bought several of these packs and got nothing more than housing items, a pet, and a level 70 witchdoctor jacket.

I don't think there is a Polaris storm gate yet, but it would be nice to get a Polaris pack.

There's one in the calebria skyway in Valencia. It's been there since Valencia 2 came out which is why people have been speculating that Polaris would be the next world we go to if we were to get another new world.

Yes, I would honestly have been happier if they had waited a week or two for them to smash the bugs. I'm fine with them holding out on anything (for a reasonable amount of time, mind you) as long as it yields good content. Also no one had anything good about it because we waited three years for it and the pack was pretty bad when it finally came.

I didn't notice it, but still it has been a while since the Polaris storm gate has been released. There is even a full world of Polaris just sitting in the code of the game, that for some reason they have held for over two years.
