Let me start off with this- Marleybone is an essential world to defeat Malistaire. It has an important part in the plot line.
Before you all freak out about me disagreeing, let me tell you- I AGREE with this topic. I hate Marleybone with every atom of my heart, no offense to the creators. I love this game overall, but I hate Marleybone.
The world of proper dogs, gangster cats, stealing mice, a constant dark sky, pollution and NO sidewalks. I agree, sidewalks would look very idiotic on a roof, but I have a suggestion! I would love it if the edges of the roof were widened, thus, allowing us to walk on the edge away from danger. Sometimes I wonder if KI purposely wants us to get caught in fights... -.-
On the other hand, I love every other world, ESPECIALLY Dragonspyre and Grizzleheim! Talk about totally epic worlds there :-D So keep up the good work work KI, and maybe sometimes in the (far) future you could remodel Marleybone...? Thanks for making such a great game.

Ok im really sorry and this might upset some of you Marleybone lovers but i really do not like it. MB is really annoying and hard and im a life wizard it should be easier because i can heal myself but it is soooo not. Im really sorry but i am tired of MB.

I teleported to one of my friends in Marleybone. I love it there! I don't think I'd like it much if it was daytime there. It would be terrible if it was like that. Of course, all of of this is just my opinion! Also, I previewed the houses in Marley bone. I like those too. The Royal Estate even has a greenhouse. Besides, it costs only 30,000 gold. That's not much compared to some other places.
Wow, many people complain about having no sidewalks.
Here's a few tricks:
Don't stay to the side, but follow the pathway of the burglars until you get to your goal. Don't be too close to the burglar in front of you or behind you. They go at a constant rate slower than you, so watch out.
Bring friends. Marleybone is challenging, but with the help of friends, you may be able to finish it in a snap.
Not only does it seem rather boring, it is also annoying and unrealistic. Everywhere you step you unintentionally get pulled into battle. Those plywood bridges make it difficult to maneuver through the rooftops. Also, how unrealistic is Marleybone! One, there are clock towers on top of buildings. How can that architecturally be done? Two, there is a whole prison on top of buildings! Wouldn't you agree that Marleybone would be better if the whole thing was more like regents square? :x :x
I dont agree with the sidewalk thing. The people that said ROOFS you are correct. Everything else I hate. Now, I am a level 37 Balance, and everytime I went in a Marleybone boss battle I LOST! except when I go in with friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i just think MB is a little bit harder than it really needs to be and i think that when your on the rooftops, there should be some thing close to a sidewalk, like a safety area, where if your on it, you have a less likely chance of going into battle. that's just what i think, but i have to agree, MB isn't the best world in Wizard101.
I love Marlybone so so so so much! i think the hooligans are funny and i love english accents and the dogs have them . Plus i like battling there cause it is so easy and the Stray cats are funny looking and soooooo cute. :D
I personally do not hate any worlds except so far MB which is mt least favorite because I constantly get pulled in though I like the others.Oh heres somthing ccool I found if you get pulled in wait to your card pull up then click the cwrons shop thing go under houses then you click the magnify glass or preveiw button wait awhile then walk out the door you will be right where you were before this can work anywhere at all hope I helped.
All of you guys are pleading to make MB easier, it's just so funny!
It's not hard at all to traverse the rooftops of Marleybone. If you traipse clumsily around, of course you're going to get pulled into battles.
Marleybone was one of my favorite worlds as a young Wizard. I never got pulled into a battle (maybe a couple times, but not enough to rant about it on the forums -_-), the quests were adequately difficult enough for a Wizard of my level, and the music and scenery was breathtaking. I remember saying 'wow' as soon as I saw the interior of the Westminster Abbey and knew that this world would be beautiful, and it was. The steam-punk enemies are still my favorite type of enemy EVER! And with Bloom Active, it'll just keel you over how vivid they are.
Pleading for changes on a world that needs nothing done to it is stupid. Maybe it's not Marleybone that needs to change. Maybe it's YOU that needs to change! I rest my case.

I really don't like the whole rooftop-monster thing. I mean, is it too much to ask to add SIDEWALKS? I get sucked up into battles at least every time I go there, and I'm usually to lazy to fight so I flee, then have to get more mana, and walk all the way back to where I was whn I got attacked. Not cool, Marleybone, not cool.
yeah its too dark and you cant go anywhere without getting into a battle. which is even worse when your low on health. besides, its too technical compared with the other worlds. plus there's marlebonian dogs EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they need to stop sticking their noses everywhere. first kt, then their own world, now cl! geez
Sorry, I adored Marleybone. I loved the atmosphere, music and quests.
To all those who want sidewalks on roofs, you're American, right? Slow down, take your time and watch patterns. Monster patterns are there, no question.
Also, get off that mount!! It will pull you into more fights than anything else. I discarded my mount when I found it was "making me a bigger target". I'll use the mount now ONLY when I am in a safe area and want more speed. Otherwise, forget it. I got pulled into more fights while mounted than when not mounted. Think about it.
Well, if you really think about, and you do all the extra quests, Wizard City is for people lvl 1-12, Krokotopia for lvl 13-32, Marleybone for lvl 33-38, Mooshu for lvl 39-45, Dragonspyre for lvl 46-52, and Celestia for lvl 53-60. I finished Marleybone early and headed to Mooshu when I was lvl 33 :/ When I finished Dragonspyre, I didn't even have Scarecrow yet! I was a lvl 45. I had to Chancel like 10 times, and lvled up about that much. But, I did it enough to get Bone Drake and got to legendary when I completed Trial :-D. And by the way... I hate MB more than ALL of the people out there. I got caught SO many times :/ So, no one else say "I hate it the most out of all the people in the world", cause your wrong.
Someone's response is, "Do you see sidewalks on roofs? No!" If that is your logic then when was the last time you saw a rat in a suit? LOL! While you may not want a sidewalk because it seems inauthentic there should be some perimeter where a player has a chance to make it to their destination without constantly being dragged into battle. It is too repetitive and numbing to fight so many battles with so few rewards, in my opinion. I agree with the original post. Marleybone Bites.
