Fansite Festival Battle Royale!

Fansite Festival Battle Royale!

Apr 15, 2016


Hey all you cool cats and daring dogs, are you tired of bonanzas, flaflanzas, and jubilees? Are you tired of contests, tournaments, and prizes? Then you’re weird and you’ve come to the wrong place.


This Saturday, April 16, 2016, Mercenaries101 will be hosting a battle royale where you can earn some amazing prizes!


  • First Place Prize: Choice of either the Jewel Crafter’s Bundle or the Polarian Bundle
  • Second Place Prize: Leftovers from what the actual winner didn’t choose
  • Third and Fourth Place Prize: 5k Crowns Code


Starting at 3PM EDT, we will be posting HERE with FIVE different clues that will lead you to a side boss across the various worlds of the spiral! Your job is to be smart and figure out what in the heck our clues even mean -_- Once you’ve figured it out, go there and snap a pic of you DEFEATING the mean beasty! After you’ve found all five, email ALL of your pictures to First 4 participants to correctly submit the answers will win!


While I’m not one to follow rules, we have to have them ;(

  • Only one entry per person is allowed, but we will be checking our email for entries every 15 minutes during the contest and will reply to give you the chance to try again if there is an error
  • Each entry must be your own, not the entry of another
  • Entries must have all five images of the side bosses
  • Entries must be submitted through email to

The contest ends when we receive four winning entries or 6pm EDT, 3 hours after start time, at which point we will award prizes to those with the most correct pictures out of 5, in order of submission.  Getting close to 6pm?  Send us what you have!  

If you have a question about the rules, please ask BEFORE the contest deadline. We reserve the right to hear or ignore all challenges/inquires made after the deadline has passed.

A huge thanks to the folks at KingsIsle for the prizes offered in this contest, and to FansiteFestival for bringing the fansite community together!

Now go out there and show the boss who’s boss!

Wizard City: Iron Golem

A young wizard! A student with amazing potential
You have got the power
To get the final piece
Atop of the tower
it’s where I’ll be

Krokotopia: Soulkeeper

In a chamber
lies a keeper of souls
whose icy cold stare
will scare you to the brim

Marleybone: Mikey the Brick

A lady’s gone missing
please help her if you dare
but that cat will eat anything
so you had better beware

Mooshu: Oakheart

In a place of despair,
My curse fills the air.
I am tainted,
But maybe afterwards we can be acquainted.
Free me from this spell,
Then my story I will tell.

Dragonspyre: Flamebringer

In this tower where I dwell
Protecting the knowledge of this place
My anger burns
Can you quell these flames?

    Added a few more details to the rules at 2:40pm EDT, just in case this contest turns out to be trickier than anticipated. Please re-read and let us know if you have any questions.

  • mercs101

    And we’re up! Good luck everyone!

  • Wizard101Jack

    what do you mean by take a pic defeating? is that when the person is gone and the battle is over or..?

    • mercs101

      You could take the picture with deadly amount of damage displayed, as the boss is falling down, or immediately following the defeat with your drops still showing on the screen. If submitting a picture with your drops showing, please also tell us who you just defeated.
