    Falmea Friday - New Years Traditions

    From the Main Message Boards:

    Falmea Friday - New Years Traditions
    Cheers to a new year, Pirate Friends. Let's chat about the future, shall we?

    Every year we begin with asking for feedback, and we shall not break with tradition this year. So, my question is - if you could add to or change something about the Spiral this year, what would it be? Would it be some sort of quality of life addition like Quest Finder? New bosses to fight in Skeleton Keys? Improving something that already exists? We want to know!

    Have a wonderful weekend!


    Standard disclaimer applies: We do not guarantee to use each and every idea submitted, and questions we pose may or may not be pertaining to things we are currently working on, or will ever undertake. Sometimes, there are just technical limitations that make changing things difficult to impossible, and though we possess all manner of magic wands here, there are technological beasts out there that are beyond our grasp. Sometimes, we may not feel it is within the spirit and vision of the spiral to add or change something. Also, we realize that some of these topics may have been addressed before in other threads - sometimes it's good to pick up a discussion again. Chances are I have read your threads and would like to hear more!


    Let's chat about the future: My response is GIVE US SOME NEWS! Let us know what's being planned. We would love to hear that some new storyline is being mapped out for pirates to sail to new adventures.

    Re: Falmea Friday - New Years Traditions

    fix the gear from the skeleton key bosses, revamp ship v ship pve combat, add in environmental effects into combat more often, differentiate mobs by giving them more unique abilities depending on their race like with hornets having poison damage and that defensive ability I can't remember dragoons have in Marleybone. Make ship pvp more bombastic (if you want ideas check my other threads), make gather quests easier by making it so I can't burn near 2 hours farming for one and still not complete it.

    Give us more crewmate-specific quests instead of the regular ones we get each world, I don't mean replace side quests altogether, but more focus on the main cast would be greatly appreciated. According to the designers side quests take up a lot of their time and are a huge dump of resources when making a new world, but most of them go underappreciated for that effort due to how monotonous or uninteresting they can be. Giving us a more unique insight into our crewmates by making the quests personal to them or just including them more often in the quests would make it much easier to get to know each crewmates personality.

    Give us more choice in what we can do in the game, selection boxes for dialog changing the outcomes of class-specific (because I doubt revamping the whole game is feasible) quests or even creating quests that are accessible for hybrid-classes, acknowledging them and making more weapons and gear for them.

    More than anything else, ADVERTISE THE GAME we're not gonna do it, but someone has too.

    I'm concerned how Falmea only suggests QOL's instead of actual new content.

    Would be nice to have an occasional Throwback Thursday for Boochbeard/Gandry Bundle items besides April Fool's items frankly speaking.

    I don't find that concerning, because I know what she does is write the one for Wizard101 and then just changes a few words for Pirate101. Since Wizards just got a new world, their next update would almost certainly be a Quality-of-Life.

    More unique weapon types. I would like to see ranged combos able to use melee abilities, since there are already melee combos that can use ranged abilities.

    Small one I have wanted is the ability to trash/sell doubloons.

    Re: Falmea Friday - New Years Traditions

    So I already posted briefly on Twitter about this, but besides a story update, here are some other features I'd like to see:

    - House Tours and Ship Tours
    I understand Wiz's decorating system is more established, and house-decorating probably isn't the biggest selling point of Pirate101 for new players, but it's still something that deepens the game and helps build community. Newbies would be able to check out people's houses and companion collections, and hopefully want to get a membership to quest further to build up their own crews of companions.

    - More House Dungeons besides Smugglers' Arena
    This will work like a preview of higher-level worlds, again to help get newbies interested as they're checking out the houses. Something with unique and variable map layouts like the Rafters to really showcase the unique chessboard combat of Pirate101.

    - Crafting
    This will help lower the barrier to entry for PVP by making it possible for people to slowly work toward a guaranteed outcome (a crafted piece of gear) rather than farming. More things that could be crafted might include stitch gear, furniture, mounts etc., anything to help deepen the game.

    - Level-Tiered PVP Tournaments
    Right now, the only type of PVP that people pay for is max-level 1v1. In Wiz, there are 1-hour-ish tournaments that people join to get a low-stakes taste of PVP. There's low-level PVP, team PVP, no-pets PVP, just all kinds of PVP. I think we should have something like that in Pirate as well.
