Companion Promotion – Fin Dorsal

promo-findorsalFin Dorsal-Cutthroat Pirate Companion

As you work your way through quests in the game, you’ll be able to unlock new companions in the Crown Shop. The Badge “Best Chum” unlocks the purchase availability for your own version of Fin Dorsal. I love him. He’s my favorite character in the game.

You can also visit our Companion Guide to find a list of all the companions available to each Pirate class within the game through questing and a few through a Crown Shop purchase. Or you can return to our Epic Promotion Guides.

When you first meet Fin he is a Cutthroat Pirate. 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. Those companions that you purchase from the Crown Shop are easy to promote, you simply have to pay a promotion fee with Gold. Fin’s first epic promotion occurs when he is promoted to Level 24.

Thank you! See You In The Skyways!

vh-fullshot25Talk Like A Pirate Contest Weekend

We wanted to say thanks to everyone who participated in our Talk Like A Pirate Contests. We hope you had fun. We sure did.

For now, it’s time for us to get back to the Skyways. And in particular to Cool Ranch.

Captain Victoria Hobbes went to Los Muertos to speak with Sister Snake near the water fall by  the Cave of Echos.

Sister Snake told us: “Three Scars tricked me! After my oldest son transformed into Flying Snake, I gave Three Scars some of my venom to kill that abomination.”

The Captain and her crew are on their way to Big Sky to collect Broken Fangs from Flying Snake in order to appease Sister Snake and win her favor for the Bisons once again.

If you’re flying around Big Sky or the other skyways in Cool Ranch, maybe we’ll see you there! May the wind fill your sails and the sun be at your back.
