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.
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.
