Companion Promotion – Mormo

Mormo The Water Mole Witchdoctor

Mormo The Water Mole Witchdoctor

The Witchdoctor’s Water Mole Companion

If you choose a Witchdoctor as your pirate class, you’ll find Mormo the Water Mole Witchdoctor as your  reward from the Bad Company quest.

You can visit our Companion Guide to find a list of all the companions available to each Pirate class within the game. Or return to our Epic Promotion guides for Pirate101 Companions.

When you first meet Mormo he is a simple Witch doctor. You can learn much more about his abilities and skills from Pirate101 Central.

As you level up your companions they will occasionally reach epic promotion opportunities. Mormo’s first epic promotion occurs when he is promoted to Level 15.

After you applied training points and he reaches this level, he’ll tell you he needs to speak with you. Let’s go to a nearby Tavern so you can talk. In his case, Mormo will say, “It is time. Mormo must be tested, must prove power. Mormo needs your help. We talk under Tavern.”

Go to your near by Tavern and let Mormo tell you his tale.


This quest will require you to have access to The Tradewinds Skyway.

The Pirate101 Crew
– Updated 09/2018

Each Pirate class has its own set of companions that can become part of your crew. You can also buy companions from the crown shop, or in bundle packs. You can also acquire special companions through Pirate101 game promotions and Fansite contests.

Some of these special companions are offered one time only and if you don’t pick one up, you may never have a chance to acquire them again. But not to fret, you’ll probably like some of the new companions offered through game upgrades.

You can learn more about Companions on the Pirate101 Companion Wiki. And you can learn more about the quests that provide the companions on the Pirate101 Quest Wiki.

Here we have our own information about Companions that may help your questing through the Spiral.

Companion Guide – A simple list of the current companions in Pirate101 by Pirate Class. Why do some pirates battle with Subodai and others with Egg Shen? How do you acquire Mormo the Witch Doctor or Sarah Steele the Mouse Fencer? The Companion Guide can tell you who’ll find in the Spiral and how they come to be part of your crew.
