Holidays 2020

Happy Holidays, Pirates! From now through the coming weekend’s December 20th, KingsIsle is celebrating the 12 Days of the Spiral! Each day we have a different surprise in store for both your Wizard and Pirate! Some days will be free giveaways, while the others have great promotions or new items. Check back each of the remaining days for new surprises!

Don’t forget to participate in our artwork contest below, as well as Swordroll and others that are putting on festive events through the rest of the year!


Tis the season for KI Live! We had a fun and festive show that capped out what has been an amazing year for the community. Since this was the last show until we return from holiday break, we stocking stuffed it full of answers to your questions, and of course gave out some gifts for all the nice Wizards and Pirates that watched the show.

If you also enjoy hanging out with us in-game, you'll want to tune in to the show, now available to watch on YouTube:

Secret Reader Bonus - As of this newsletter's announcement, for those who didn't get a chance to redeem the KI Live giveaway code yet, we opened it up again (HOLIDAYGIFTS2020) for another 500 redemptions!

For more videos and livestreams, be sure to subscribe to KingsIsle's YouTube channel.


Help make the holidays magical during this year’s 12 Days of the Spiral event! Today kicks off our annual winter artwork contest, but with a cool twist. For Wizard101 the theme is all about Karamelle and frosty treats. For Pirate101 we want to see what your favorite world scene or character looks like.

Get an opportunity to win some great prizes, including up to 30,000 Crowns for either game and the Winter Pet Bundle for Wizard101 as well as the New Fangle Mount in Pirate101!

For this month’s screenshot spotlight, Goofy Gilda Groot is seen here caught between two vortexes. Be sure to friend them in game to find out how they got out of such a dire situation!

Capture an amazing screenshot like a magnificent sunset or a monster about to eat your ship and send it to us at community@pirate101.com. We’re always interested in showing off more art, gameplay guides, and other content!

Thanks, Pirates!


TheFearsomeRubberDucky is back again with another great how-to video, this time a guide on the companion, Gracie Conrad!
