Is Marleybone the smallest world?

Is Marleybone just another grindfest?

Anyone have any helpful hints on Marleybone danger or hidden spots etc.

1) Yes, Marleybone has fewer areas than the other worlds. This is from the subscription info page:
Krokotopia (17 Areas)
Marleybone (10 Areas)
Moo Shu (12 Areas)
Dragonspyre (12 Areas)

2) The quests in Marleybone follow the same pattern of the first two worlds, so base your opinion on that. It's more like Krokotopia than Wizard City though. There are quests where you have to kill a million rats to collect a few foozles, and there are fed-ex quests that even send you back to Krokotopia and Wizard City. Overall, Marleybone "feels" like Krokotopia very much. There's a central area from which you visit the other areas, just like the oasis. Mooshu is more like Wizard City, where there are several linked areas, like the commons, ravenwood, old town, etc, from which you enter the other areas. I much prefer the open feeling of Mooshu and Wizard City, but that's just my opinion.

3) There are many things about Marleybone that make it different. There are no sidewalks, so walking around is a bit more of a challenge (you'll have to figure out the best way to travel when you get there). The bad guys also seem to be more mixed together, as opposed to the previous two worlds. For example, the three streets in Oldtown each had a theme, so a player could pick spells and a wand to maximize damage per turn and shield types. In Marleybone, you have to be a lot smarter about how you set up your spell book and how you pick your equipment, because each area is likely to have a mixture of several different types of monsters. There are also monsters in the "streets" that walk nearly as fast as a running wizard, and others who walk much slower than previous monsters. Both of those mixed together can make things very interresting when trying to cross the "street" or walk around in an area. The bosses towards the end of the Marleybone world give out some really sweet loot though, so it's well worth it.

Thanks, what an awesome and informative answer.

Now, it I can finish the Tomb of Storms (or whatever) I can get there!

I just came across this thread while reading the forums. Great post gswift7. Perhaps you can help me with my own Marleybone question :-). The previous character I made before the last wipe was also in Marleybone. Sometime during the rooftop quests I had found this really great wand. It started each battle with a power pip and often it would start with a power and a normal pip. I loved it :-). I know for certain that I found it in Marleybone but I'm unsure from which boss or quest. I've done all the Marleybone quests on my current character, some more than once but I haven't been able to find it. Perhaps you know of this wand and/or which quest/boss I could find it on? Thank you for any help you or any other kind knowledgeable person can give. And keep up the great posts :-).

Thank you smo68. I've made it to mooshu and there are wands sold there that also give a pip, but I think I'll try the prison where I can get it for free. Thanks again :-)

I've been trying to compile a list of badges and what is needed to accomplish them.

Unfortunately, the badges I've found so far in Marleybone are all ???? so I can't see what I'm at or what is needed, which is very frustrating to me.

Can someone give me some guidance and/or let me know the badges?

I want to make the list for everyone. ^_^

1) yes marley bone is the smalles world (but it is fancy)

2) what is a grindfest?

3) you will want to be carful in newgate prison as there are certain parts that the monsters can walk through the middle which is where you should be traveling. also if your running on the right side of the street (why would you, you should stay in the middle) watch out because a monster might drop on you because there is a glitch whee monsters walk on the side of a building like it's a ramp and then drops down.

Now before i post i must say that i am still in krokotopia,Although i have been to all worlds thanks to a charecter named Christina DarkEyes level 39.

In my opinion,i would say i prefer mooshu to the other three worlds,due to its challenging fights and good drops.I went to marleybone and was OUTRAGED when i saw the prices on the clothes.Kroko is pretty good but the clothes for level 15's are sorta costly to me.Wizard city was way too easy,i did it in under 4 days.


MooShu has another reason of being a fave.The huge sidewalk(s).


Basically i agree with who i qouted,as marleybone has no sidewalks and the prices are outrageous(theyll seem like nothin when i finally check out mooshu shops,i bet)

As far as prices go; On my last two characters I never seemed to have enough money to buy all the best stuff in the shops while I was still in Wizard City and Krokotopia. However, by the time I completed Krokotopia I was getting better stuff from drops than what I could buy at the stores. I sold most of the loot I picked up in the second half of Krokotopia and ended up with nearly enough money to buy all the best stuff in Marleybone when I got there. After completing a couple of quests and selling some Marleybone loot (which is worth a lot more than krok stuff when you sell it) I had purchased all the good stuff in Marleybone stores and still had money left over with nothing to spend it on. I spent a bunch of it on healing treasure cards but still had enough cash to buy anything I wanted when I reached Mooshu. Now that I'm nearing the end of Mooshu on both characters, I am getting close to the 99,999 limit on gold and there's not much I need to buy. Part of that is because I've been doing the bosses multiple times so that I can collect the unique items they drop though. That tends to give you quite a bit of extra stuff to sell for gold.

In regard to the badges list, you should know that I talked to Mr. Lincoln about the Krokosphinx Delver badge and was informed that this badge is "broken and will be fixed soon" :( I hope that means it will be awarded to us that have completed it rather than having to do it all over again

Ok, so who thinks that marleybone is the most hectic world out of all of the other worlds?
I think that Mooshu is the calmest world and Marleybone is the most hectic and fastes one.
How hard is Kensington anyways?
Me and my dad haven't even done it yet.
Oh well, 8) .

I'm curious as to why you want to complete all badges? Is there a profit/reasoning for that? I have unfinished badges in all the worlds on my life character, up to DS.

Chiming in here, I have had great success picking up good gear in the Wizard City Bizzare. With the abundance of stuff there, prices tended to be cheaper for some things, especially with treasure cards. Finding the rare stuff can be an issue, but if your patient like I am good things are there. I've purchased an electrical wand which gives me 80 hit points with five cards and one pip for 2500. I saw a simliar wand sonewhere else(can't remember where :( for almost twice as much. Anyways happy gaming!

> 2) what is a grindfest?

Do Sunken City in wizard city and the definition will be apparent. ;)

A "grind/grindfest" is generally when you face what seems to be endless back to back battles.

I helped a friend in Kensington and I saw these gearheads. I forgot what they were called. We had to fight them and they had 2000 health and there were four of them Lucky we survived by healing and porting back to battle. They were tough! I'm getting worried about going there cuz I didn't have the quest yet.

Makes sense that Mooshu is calmest since they have that whole Zen garden Buddhist thing goin on... Marleybone took me the longest because it was the most boring, never attracting me to log in and play. For the record I never did Kensington and I've almost beaten the game. Every time I start to head in and it tells me it's going to take 3 hours.... I just can't bring myself to do it just to have the badge. Maybe someday when I run out of quests...

MB is my least favorite world for a few reasons.

1) NO SIDEWALKS? Are you kidding me?

2) Expensive clothes. WAY expensive. I ended up selling all my clothes from MB and started buying from GH. It's annoying every time I want new clothes suitable to my level and they cost too much.

3) Lots of detail on it makes me laggy sometimes.

4) You can get pulled into a fight from 7 steps away! It makes you a target for all enemies.

Because of these reasons I almost skipped MB and went right to MS, you can do that as a friend can take you there every time, and then you can (somehow) unlock DS with it, though I've heard of doing it, I've never thought it was possible....

One of the very few things I like about MB, though. Sometime you're there, click on your screen and drag to look up at the sky. IT DOESN'T EVEN LOOK LIKE A SKY! XD Just like someone took wallpaper and spread it over the sky. XD Also you'll notice that lampposts go all the way into the sky..... XD

My favorite world would be MooShu. I'm not on it yet but I've seen all the worlds, by my friends, and they have BIG sidewalks, the monsters are easy for me to fight all by myself even for lvl 32, and Japan is my favorite country, which it is based on!
