top 10 things w101 and p101 could add

just 10 things kingsilse could add to make the games better In random ways, I'm excluding things that are in one game but not the other, like crafting.

10 teacher boss fights, I'm not talking about things like Cyrus drake I'm talking about our pirate vs Avery or our wizard vs Ambrose, a long requested thing that probably wont happen.

9 pirate and wizards meet. sort of like the box event but a wizard (presumably ours) meets our pirate, just a little idea with so many possibilities.

8 explanations of how the spiral work. I'm talking not about its history we have that, I'm talking about a scientific explanation of the inner works of the spiral. possibly explained with a combo of magic and science?

7 huge bosses. When I say huge I mean huge. same mechanics but it would be more intimidating and look way cooler. sort of like the size of a building huge.

6 companion customization. in other games you can change your companions clothes. I like this idea since it makes it seem like every companion is different. this is really a p101 thing but still.

5 fighting style crossovers. I want to see our wizards get in fights like the days of old dragonspyre, forcing to rely on magic to beat enemies coming at you with weapons and not just casting spells. same with our pirate, it really would seem cool.

4 Fleet Battle! like ship pvp but this would require around five npc ships that you have in your fleet and your main ship which you control. it would require strategy and not just clicking buttons.

3 more strategy based fights. sure there is cheats but its really more a normal fight with some side stuff. I would like to see more fights like the kane battle, except it actually works like chess or something like that.

2 some new serious topics, the save the spiral gig is getting a bit old. something new would be better even on small scale. I would like to see the topic of death more focused on in a small scale, Azteca was general but a side quest dealing with it would be much better. sometimes even kids games need a pinch of darkness.

1 guild type things with conquest. it would be great to have official groups of people who resonate with something in something like a guild and maybe even have spiral conquest where you do certain things to gain points, and if your guild captures a world then your guild flag and name would show for a time, and you could earn special capture only rewards for your lvl and class. of course it would be themed the world you capture and would add a new lvl of competition and players to both games.

top ten favorite dungeons in both games

same as before, least favorite of the favorite at number 10 and favorite of the favorite at one, shall we start?

number 10: the great spire, last dungeon of DS
I love this dungeon because its so amazing, the beginning looks like a maze and it used to be required to get a full group. but I just love the looks of it, plus its cool to see the dragon titan up close!

number 9: the labyrinth, DS
what can I say, I love ds and its dungeons! I love this one especially because of the fact there is a lava lake, its just so awesome and the dungeon is like a giant prison/living area which is awesome!

number 8 beachhead, the core
this one is a bit boring for some, but very funny and great to explore for me. I felt like I was in star wars, trying to blow up the armadas version of the death star. plus the turret makes me think its also a factory since it never is truly defeated.

number 7: the machine, Valencia.
largely due to the unique battle, and this is the end of the first arc for p101 this is one of my favorite dungeons. True the difficulty might be a factor but this dungeon was only good enough to be number seven, not top five in my opinion

number 6:darkmoor, the graveyard.
due to its great drops, hard to work around cheats, and the cut scenes this beat out the first fight with malistare by a long shot! however it kind of sucks I couldn't use a heal pet through a few battles.

number 5: dragonspyre past, DS
this is a very beautiful dungeon, well designed and although short and small gives us a huge look on what DS was like before the dragon titan. plus who doesn't love the joke about some person fixing the bridges in ds present then you fix the bridges in ds past.

number 4: duck of death boot hill. CR
kind of a weird one, I love it for the fact you fight on a ship, plus the fact that you have to blow it up doesn't hurt ;)

number 3: cavern of the crescent moons, MQ diablo cut
while it may be a bit long it certainly makes me think. for one its a Indiana jones reference, with the holy grail, the guarding knight, etc. and a reference to a short story about a monkeys paw that grants three wishes that usually turn out bad.NI

Number 2: troy, mouse and palace. Aquila p101
this is may favorite for several reasons, one its hilarious, with the monty python references, 2 it looks amazing and well done, and three, gold chickens! overall this parody storyline of the Iliad is great, sort of like a mini arc by itself.

NUMBER 1: Wreck of the victory, Trafalgar Vortex
this is such an amazing dungeon, I may have farmed for hours on end day and night for nearly a year, its drop rates may be the worst in history, and it may get annoying but its so awesome to fight an army of armada with dogs at your side, and see a death star like explosion when you leave. It never gets old and I continue to go back time to time

Top 10 bosses in the spiral

this lists my top 10 favorite bosses from both p101 and w101 combined
starting from least favorite of the ten (number 10) to my favorite boss in both games (num 1)
number 10: The first malistare encounter
while I didn't like the fight (it was rather boring for me) I did love the setting, the dragon titan staring at us battle, the look of dragonspyre, combined with the music gave me chills, its a dungeon I sometimes go back to for no reason other than to see that all again.

number 9: The machine, kane.
yes the first arc final boss again, both deserve a spot on this list, but Kane is better because of the style of the battle, its completely unique to the game, extremely difficult and offers some cool items, but what I love about it most is this is a boss you can be afraid of, even with a full skilled and good geared group. with out a buck spamming tritons chorus, Kane can pretty much one shot anyone. Most bosses in these games are not at all hard with a full group, but with Kane, we may joke he is going to kill us in one shot, but we are terrified of it happening.

number 8: buster crab (a boss before the si expansion update)
while this was a very easy fight, I loved the fact that we had to free someone and protect them to win. the badge wasn't to bad either, "crab boiler" was funny and I wish they would give us some way to get it back.

number 7: darkmoor malistare
technically different boss, but I love malistare anyways so he was going to be on here again. What I love about this is not the fight, not the drops, but the ending. the guy we see defy death time and time again so he can destroy us and resurrect his wife finally admits defeat and accepts peace with us. it was a touching moment and one that never gets old.

number 6: Cyrus drake
this fight was not hard, yet not easy. we could get no help from friends, crown shop henchmen were not the best choice to waste on him, and he was a professor facing a student, yet I loved it because of this. it was new, exciting and of course, a great chance for revenge against him trying too expel us for bringing his laundry late or something like that >:D

number 5: every cool ranch boss.
why you may ask? because of the music. it made me think I was in a old west showdown, what else is there to say?

number 4: every Dragonspyre boss
again with every boss but its true, DS is my favorite world because a combo of the music, setting, and atmosphere. some of my favorite settings were the rooms with lava on the floor and ceiling. great jobs designers

number 3: bishop, beachhead
this guy is great, his historical reference to the plague, he is a mad scientist and most of all, the only elite to survive 3 battles with us! coward yes, but it shows he may be more sentient than kane since he has a will to live. the only time he doesn't flee is in the presence of kane who would do worse things to him than us.

number 2: froggo villa
funny dialogue plus some family history. turns out my great uncle made beer in the time of prohibition, so he moved to texas to make moonshine, pancho villa then captured him and tried to ransom him but my great uncle befriended pancho and his crew and later he took a photo with him and his gang and got panchos and some of his gangs signatures. so ya, I was like, oh hey its a family friend!

before our number 1 here is some honorable mentions
Moo Manchu tower of moo, Jacques the scratcher, jade oni, deacon.

now for number 1, drum roll on whatever is nearby....
Rooke! wreck of the victory.
its true his drop rates are some of the worst in gaming history, I mean its rare for him to even drop junk drops let alone his stuff!, but I love the setting of the fight, two collided ships, the tense yet mb like music, the beautiful mb sky, FIRE, and the first rooke fight, kill rooke who is an anti melee and ranged monster, protect nelson against an army of armada, and how cool rooke looks! overall while he never drops things it is still a fun dungeon which I have a ton of memories of.
