Housing – Teleporters

portersPlacing Teleporters At Home

Porters are a great item to have on your island home. Especially if you have one of the bigger islands. You can place a porter near your dock, and link its travel location near your front door. When you arrive with a new item to place in your house, you can run into the porter and you’ll automatically be ported to your house. It’s a great idea!

So here’s how it works. Firstly you should know that teleporters are one way travel gateways. You’ll be able to run into the porter wheel and teleport to another location. But you won’t be able to go back as there won’t be another porter wheel to enter.

Additionally placing the porter is a two step to this process. You will need to place the porter and then go to where you want it to send you to and mark that spot. Continue reading

Companion Promotion – Lucky Jack Russell

Lucky Jack Dog Privateer

Lucky Jack Dog Privateer

The Shipwrecked Dog Pirate Companion

If your parents were Shipwrecked, you’re old family friend rescued at the Presidio will be Lucky Jack Russell. He helps you recover the Spice and deliver it to the Frog Father. Then with the Frog Father’s blessing, he becomes a member of your crew. Lucky Jack is one of my favorite companions, so I’m excited it’s time for his first promotion.

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 Lucky Jack he is a Dog 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. Lucky Jack receives his first epic promotion 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. “Captain, I’ve just got a letter I think you should see. Let’s discuss this in a Tavern, shall we?”

In the Tavern he’ll tell you.. Continue reading

History of Veterans Day
World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” – officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U. S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday—a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as “Armistice Day.” Armistice Day was primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after World War II had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the Nation’s history; after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting in its place the word “Veterans.” With the approval of this legislation (Public Law 380) on June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

Goofing Off!


It’s been a long week! But I get to goof off for the rest of the day! Woohoo!! And that means, I’m playing Pirate!

Scarlet Hawkins has entered the Hidden Temple and will be in Port Regal soon.

But Captain Victoria Bristol is still in the early stages of Cool Ranch and has some catching up to do in order to keep pace with her sisters. Continue reading
