Scrolling Through Powers and Doubloons During Battles

Occasionally you may get into a battle and need a certain specific power on the battleboard. But it’s not displayed in your list of powers at the bottom of the screen. Oh no, now what?

The same thing can happen with your doubloons. Whither you are in a battle alone or in a Team-up, you can have a list of doubloons, and none of them will help you in the current battle round. Argh, where is that minion doubloon when you need it most!?

Crown Shop – Henchmen

Henchman

Buying Help

Occasionally you may get into a battle that just seems a little too tough to overcome or win. Never fear, you can buy some help through the Crown Shop in the midst of that battle.

Henchmen are short time workers, for a specific battle. When you buy a henchman you have the option of purchasing one of these workers who is on any level available to your Captain.

Henchmen are available in every class of Pirate. You’ll find Musketeer and Witchdoctor henchmen. You’ll find henchmen starting at level 5, up to the highest level available (currently Level 70). These henchmen come with the same powers as any Pirate class Captain of that level. So the powers of your Witchdoctor Level 40 Captain, will be the powers you see assigned to the Witchdoctor Level 40 henchmen. Continue reading

Companion Promotion – Old Scratch Level 70

Old Scratch The Skeletal Shaman

Nightmare Old Scratch
In the World of Dreams

As you level up your companions they will occasionally reach epic promotion opportunities. When you first meet Old Scratch he is an Undead Witchdoctor. This is his fourth epic promotion and it occurs when he reaches Level 70.

You can learn much more about his  abilities and skills at this level from Pirate101 Central. At the end of this promotion quest, he becomes a Skeletal Shaman.

  • Undead Witchdoctor
  • Undead Bokor – Level 24 Promotion
  • Undead Hougan – Level 35 Promotion
  • Skeletal Shaman – Level 70 Promotion

After you’ve applied your training points and Scratch levels up, 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 The other side is hungry and that he feels dark powers moving, at the edges of his sight. He explains this sensation is like a nightmare, and the Old Scratch waits beyond for his doom! He’ll tell you that his magic is no match for this and you must head off to talk to Vadima.  Continue reading

The World Of Dreams

Obsidian Door at the Scrimshaw Docks

The Realm of the Nightmare Bosses

This world isn’t like going from Skull Island to Marleybone. It’s more like a dungeon that you can enter, exit and come back to over and over again.

Introduced in August 2018, The World of Dreams is a place of Nightmares. Inside this dungeon are battle rooms where you will face off against the toughest of opponents. It’s not for the weak at heart! And these Nightmare Bosses, may seem familiar, but these are battles unlike anything you’ve faced before!

The World of Dreams begins at the Obsidian Door on the Scrimshaw Docks. Once you’ve docked, cross the bridge and run to the right of the ships toward the tavern. Keep going and head over to the Warehouses. At the end of the row of the buildings, you’ll find the Obsidian doorway and sigil.  Continue reading

We Made Some Updates

A Pirate's Portal

What’s New & Improved
Summer 2018 Updates for A Pirate’s Portal

After 4 years of rarely posting on our Pirate Blog, we’ve made some new posts and updated some old articles as we return to the Pirating world. Last time we made any significant game updates, Marleybone, Aquila and Florenza hadn’t even been added to the spiral yet! So we not only needed to make some updates, we also wanted to share some new information too. Here’s what we’d like to highlight.

We’ve added a couple of Quest Journals for epic battles:

We’ve also included some new tips and hints for making the most of your Pirate gear:

And we’ve updated some old posts to add new information that extends to Level 70 Pirates:

  • Worlds In The Stormgate – Windstones & Skyways
    You might find some new worlds floating out there in the Stormgates.
  • Prospector Zeke Quests – Finding Lost Things
    We’ve completed Mooshu and added Marleybone and Aquila
  • Pirate Spiral Tavern Locations.
    We’ve updated the Taverns for all current locations.
  • World of Dreams
    We cover the new area in Scrimshaw, behind the Obsidian Door. Learn about the Skeleton Key Bosses and where you can pick up extra keys when you need them most!

And we’ve updated a couple of our most popular posts too:

  • Companion Guide – A simple list by Pirate Class
    We’ve updated the Companion lists to Level 70
  • Epic Promotions For Companions – Quest Guides   Updated 09/2018
    We made a lot of changes here. This post hasn’t been updated since it was originally posted. It needed a lot of help.
  • Companion Promotion – Old Scratch – Level 70 Promotion
    Do you need help defeating the Dark Reflection Scratch? We have a few hints.

Finally we’ve also added some game hints for how to manage the loot your Captains pick up during their travels through the spiral:
