Companion Promotion – Gaspard de Vole

Gaspard de Vole Guinea Pig Guard

Gaspard de Vole
Guinea Pig Guard

The Guinea Pig Guard Companion

If your parents were captured by the Armada, you will discover an old family friend along your travels through the Skull Island Skyway.

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 Gaspard he is imprisoned in the Monquistan Spice fortress known as The Presidio. He becomes a member of your crew, with the blessing of the Frog Father, as a Guinea Pig Guard.  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. Gaspard’s first epic promotion occurs when he is promoted to Level 21.

After you applied training points and he reaches this level, he’ll tell you he needs to speak with you. “I have just gotten word – Alonzo, my first Captain, he needs my help! Let’s talk in a Tavern!

Find the nearest tavern and hear his tale. He will explain that he served on Alonzo’s crew for many years, searching for a legendary treasure known as the Golden Frond. Which is a Holy relic from Monquista. If you help Gaspard to help his old friend, you will be cut in for a share of treasure. To begin your journey, you’ll head off to Scrimshaw and visit the barkeep at the Hole in the Wall Tavern. So get sailing.

This quest will require you to have access to Monquista.

Companion Promotion – Old Scratch

Old Scratch

Old Scratch

Old Scratch – Witchdoctor Companion

During your travels through Skull Island and your initial quests in the Flotsam Skyway you’ll find a dangerous cave near the Ruined Lighthouse. Within the cave you’d do battle with Old Scratch and his minions. But he’s not so bad after all and asks if he can join your crew.

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 Old Scratch he is an Undead Witchdoctor. 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. Old Scratch will reach his first epic promotion when he is promoted to Level 23.

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 the Tavern he’ll tell you “Captain my Captain, my spirit be very troubled. A chill touched my heart, the shadow of dark mojo.” And thus begins your quest “The Serpent and The Raven”.  He’ll explain that his teacher Papa Legbones is in danger and Old Scratch must go to him. Your initial journey to seek him out will take you back to the land of the Scurvy Dogs.

This quest will require you to have access to Cool Ranch.
