I know rooftops don't have sidewalks but hey.....

I don't LOVE marleybone because you have to kill cats (I take back that i said Marleybone was 1 on my favorite world I put it in number 6), poor kitties, poor cute kittens. Because in real I think cats are the most adorable thing in the world

Marleybone shouldn't get side walks.Not having sidewalks makes it more of a challenge and all games need some challenge in them. I also agree with the people saying that its on roof tops. It wouldn't make sense for you to have sidewalks on rooftops.

Same in W101.


In W101 you can't fall off of anything. That's how it is with a lot of games. :)

IN REAL LIFE they said, not in Wizard 101. That is their lojic and mine about the real life ness of the side walks on the other worlds exept replace cars with what you are fighting they just wanted to make it safe in the middle and the sides so that people like me. I get sucked into battles in WC for goodness sakes patally because im clumsy but that is why I hate no side walks. I also posted my concerns on the WC message board thanks

Please, this is not bad coding. This is exactly what they intended. One of the primary challenges in Marleybone is learning how to navigate. It is very frustrating at first, but if you take the time, you will adapt to it and it will help you in future worlds (I'm thinking cave of solitude in mooshu). Don't let it frustrate you -- look at it as a learning experience because there is a skill to be learned now. Now, i can run through Marleybone with ease and only get into the fights I want to get in -- even with those dang lightning fast, diagonal running, start/stop clockwork golems. And you will too.

I am consistently getting stuck in a repetition of pointless battles over and over again in Marleybone. I am getting out of here as soon as I can, the lack of sidewalks on this level has almost led me to cancel my account and leave the game.

This is an excellent example of bad coding, for an hour I was stuck fighting the Feline Scatchers for no quest or reward. An hour and a half to go 20 feet in the game to a tower to enter a dungeon to start the quest.

Whoever designed this level should go through the game at least once to encounter these errors and experience the frustration that is part of Marleybone.

For now i am only to Sherlock Bones to get to Mooshu which I hope is better.
i agree with him/her i made to katzenteins lab bye having some friends letting me port befor i could go and i was lev 5 when that now im 31 and i made it to katensteins lab in a week or 2 8)

Marleybone is not bad if you slow down just a bit. I have five wizards that have gone through there, and I found out two things:

1. Turn your pet off! Your pet can cause you to get caught while you are running if he is closer to a bad guy than you are! Make sure to turn it back on before a battle if he gives you any special spells or health!

2. SLOW DOWN! Run from grate to grate, staying in the middle of the rooftops, but stop at the grates, and make sure you look behind you before you start moving again to make sure noone is sneaking up. There IS a rythem to how they move!

I did Marleybone solo except for Big Ben with my last 2 wizards and got caught in an unwanted battle only one time, because I was in a hurry! When I help other people, I prefer to be the 'designated runner', as I can get to the destination safer than most of the other people I've been in there with.

first of all you cant put sidewalks on the roofs, and if you dont want to get caught stay in the middle. second, even if they were to put sidewalks all of you who thought that they should add them would most likely still get caught. getting around the enemies on the roof is just as easy as getting around them on the streets. iam surprized all of you havent somehow found a way to fall off the roofs yet

actually guys i know i posted earlier agreeing but now that i finished marleybone its actually my favorite world now (don't hurt me)

if you think about it logically, the side of the roof is dangerous because you'll fall off, but the center is the safest because your not near and edge, hence, not falling off. as for the gearheads they are easy to dodge, if they take some odd patterns, just follow them, and you won't get discovered.


marleybone is a fun world if you do it right.

Yeah. i agree! so you would do the exact! another thing. If you are frustrated about it still what i do is walk then stop behind the enemies. It works most of the time. But you have to be careful when you do this. And what you could do is stop on the ramps where the enemies do not go on it and plan your next route to the next ramp! Guys. It's rooftops i think KingsIsle meant to do this.

Ya I totally agree with you also I bet KingsIsle meant to do this to make Marelybone a world to practice navigating around enimies especially when you reach the Cave of Solitude in Mooshu because there's no sidewalks in the Cave.

I agree. You never see sidewalks on rooftops. I get stuck in battle with cats and mouses sometimes, so get used to it.

I agree with you guys. I usually watch the running patterns, then when their in a certain spot, I either run down the middle or follow behind them slowly.

LOL SO TRUE!!!! For all of you who are complaining about no sidewalks, you just have to get use to it. What helped me when i first got to MB was brining a friend who already did it to show me how to run. It is quite helpful and others should try it.

Ok being that I first went to MB w/o really on that lvl to be there..... it was quite fun dodging the bad guys......
that said, now I'm lvl 30 and supposed to be there the baddies like to sneak up on ya more!

SIDEWALKS on ROOFTOPS!?! ha! that's a first, come on people..... good joke though

You will learn how to navigate through the MIDDLE and BEHIND the bay guys as well as WAITING and WATCHING their movements for the BEST way AROUND them! It's all part of the fun and frustration of the game!

Hi its Brianna! I have a question. WHY DOESNT MARELYBONE HAVE ANY SIDE WALKS?! ""I mean everytime i go there i always get caught by a stupid rat, cat and gear heads! Its so annoying.

PLEASE DONT THINK I AM STUPID TRYING TO ASK PEOLPLE TO PUT SIDE WALKS IN MB! (my cousin say i am stupid for doing this but i dont care)

The answer to this is simple, young Wizards.

The adventure areas of Marleybone take place on the rooftops of the buildings.
There are no sidewalks on rooftops.
When you are on a rooftop, the safest area is NOT the outer edges, but the middle.

hi, destiny here. i was wondering: why is MB the only place without sidewalks? WC, DS, krok, and even mooshu have sidewalks, but in marleybone you have to deftly dodge rats cats and gearheads while making your way to a boss fight! WHY? you could at least put a bunch of wooden planks on the side!
i am with ya buddy :D
