So I just beat the game (yay for me.) and I have a question for players. What was the 1 moment in the game where your jaw dropped in amazement. for me it would be when you summon maruzame.

My 'WOW' moment was when I promoted Kobe Yojimbo to a Bull Samoorai Lord and he looked so dang on cool.

I have never experienced a "jaw dropping" moment in a video game, I expect cool fantasy stuff in fantasy games. However I laughed hysterically wandering through Cool Ranch picking up on all then references/easter eggs they put in the game. (mainly character descriptions/names.. ie Poultrygiest's, etc)

For my 'WOW' moment,it was when Ratbeard wanted to be my companion,because he tried to kill me but now I feel bad for him because Captain Fowl stole his leg, killed his dad, burned down his house and he had grow up in a sewer.

I thought about this a bit more.
One of the moments I was most initially impressed was the first time I entered a Stormgate, very beautiful!!!

My other wow moment was the second you come out of the stormgate to valencia and you see that mechanical monstrosity the armada is building and how it just looms in the distance and foreboding music starts playing. Then you realize "if the armada finishs that thing... we're doomed."

My wow moment (not exactly a jaw dropping experience) when I first enter the Haunted Skyway, how they made the area spooky. Also impress how the made they made a ghost town in a dungeon spooky as well.

The very first time I walked out of Avery's office. I am still having Wow moments to this day.

When I watched that very first puppet show. I was blown away by the fun details and story line. Before that I was just kind of checking out the game, thinking to myself; ''I'll just take a look at this so I can say that I did, and then forget about it and go back to Wizards''.

Yeah. I never went back. :)

I am a level 47 Swashbuckler and my WOW moment has to be finishing Deacon. I was so in shock and was like "WOW that was hard" and I couldn't believe it was his end.

My wow moment was when I was in the hoodoo house dungeon and a skeletal pirate attacked and he hit like 105 or something like that. For all you high leveled players out there, that's nothing, but it took away about a third of my health. I was like level 9 or 10.

There were a lot. Stupendor X was probably one of the best, I laughed like a six year old in a candy store, watching the funniest episode of spongebob they could find. I even told my friend "I'M A GIANT MAGIC IRON MAN!" Yes, I know that joke failed horribly. The second best moment had to be my first time in Valencia, it's got a feeling of foreboding and shadows around it.

When I first entered MooShu, The Graphics were just beautiful and the scenery was amazing their. I couldn't believe a game could have graphics like that.

(as belt would say from the croods)

Sorry I can't help it but this is a good spot to add it (and i laugh)

But i have ton of wow moments cause this game is epic ... but when i think to the first time this happen i guessed it was the first time i enter a storm gate and wonder "so that's how we can sail around the spiral without needing a spiral door .." and when i saw the beauty of the spiral from this angel .... I thought that it was amazing ... i just want to explore forever and reach every world there is.

My wow moment was in pvp when i was on a team with a level 50 priv ( i was lvl 50 too) Then he used the move where it increases crits. And then after that almost every time it said epic hit for our team. I loved looking at the crit moves. It was so cool!

This is going to sound silly... but there I was, watching my husband create his first pirate character. I was not going to make one myself: 'I only have time to play one game, and that is Wizard101' and 'I don't want to play a pirate, I like virtuous characters!'. Then I saw the beautiful italic script for 'Somewhere in the Spiral'. I was so impressed (and jealous! I am working on improving my Copperplate script and the one Pirate uses is even more beautiful!) Then I was delighted by the puppet shows of the character origins, really reminding me of 18th & 19th C. toy theaters I have seen in museum books and making me laugh at the same time... and then I saw you could wear 18th C. clothes! Oh my. By the time I realized that you could also don period names, I was hooked. I had to play. Happily, I could even play a virtuous character (or at least she tries... that halo of hers slips a lot, I have to say). But yes, that italic hand started it all.
