While you’re sailing through the spiral, you will come across different skyways within a single world. For instance, in Skull Island you’ll travel through the Skull Island skyway, but you’ll also visit the Tradewinds Skyway, Flotsom Skyway and the Port Regal Skyway. These skyways are all within the world of Skull Island.
During your travels you will come across Windstones that provide you with a key to activate Stormgates. Windstones were first discovered by the people of Valencia, who used them to travel through the otherwise impassable Stormgates. They are powerful crystals that come in a variety of colors. And they are required to enter the Stormgates.
Stormgates are openings between worlds. These areas also have windlanes that take you from the gate of one world to another. And you’ll find beasties and enemy ships, along with a few treasures in these areas as well.
You’ll also notice a few world bubbles floating around in the sky of these stargates. Some you are probably familiar with. But some you spy, might be new worlds that have not yet been released by the Royals at KingsIsle.
As you’re traveling around the Stargates, don’t forget to look around. You might see something that gives you hint of what might be coming soon in the Spiral. Here’s a chart for the worlds I’ve seen floating in the stargates. Some I know and some I haven’t the faintest clue. Maybe you’ve seen these too. Continue reading →
There are two parts to Cool Ranch the way I see it. Both are pretty long and involved. Cool Ranch – Part I ends when you take on the Duck of Death and defeat him. That gets you closer to a missing map piece held by Captain Blood. But for now you’ll be sent back to Skull Island for a bit where you’ll work on getting to Port Regal.
As an FYI, you still need to go through the Tumbleweed and Haunted Skyways in Cool Ranch. But you haven’t received a quest to do that yet. Don’t worry. You’ll get there.
In Cool Ranch you spoke to Don Rafael who told you he had information. But he couldn’t give it to you until you completed a favor fwor him. To reunite his adopted son Don Rodrigo with Rafael’s daughter Carolina. You know her as Mustang Sally. It’s been a long time since you’ve seen Sally in Flotsam however. So you’ll need to head back to the Flotsam Skyway and talk to One-Eyed Jack. Continue reading →

But don’t forget you’re coming to find Merriweather Clark and another piece of Marco Pollo’s map. But Clark has gone missing. Probably the work of the Armada. Watch your back and be on the look out for anyone who might be able to help you in this Big Sky country!
There are two parts to Cool Ranch the way I see it. Both are pretty long and involved. The first part ends when you take on the Duck of Death and defeat him. That gets you closer to the map, but you still need information about Captain Blood and what he has done with it. And that continues in Cool Ranch Part II.
This is a HUGE area so expect on spending some time here. when you think you’re moving on, you’ll open some new areas and still be fighting. Continue reading →
Each Pirate class has its own set of companions that can become part of your crew. You can also buy companions from the crown shop, or in bundle packs. You can also acquire special companions through Pirate101 promotions. Some of these special companions are offered one time and if you don’t pick one up, you may never have a chance to acquire them again. But not to fret, you’ll probably like some of the new companions offered in the future.
Here in Cool Ranch you’re first stop will be to Cooper’s Roost. Look for Don Marina. He’ll give you a quest to take some supplies to Zeke who’s over on Gold Creek island.
Over there Zeke will be to the right near his Prospector’s tent. He’ll tell about a local gal who lost her defenseless little chicks and he’ll ask you to help find them. After all you’ve got a nice fast ship to travel around in. So on to your new Zeke Quest.
As with most Zeke items, you must complete certain tasks in some areas in order to be given a quest to enter another area where you can hunt down the next king. So don’t think you can get the quest from Zeke and then set off to find the statues.
Below are the locations of the kings and a map for the area they’re in. Look for the X on the map. Well of course it’s an X, how else would you Mark The Spot for treasure in a Pirate world?
Finding The Dixie Chicks You’ll have 10 Chicks to find. Keep checking your Zeke quest when you get to a new area and see if you’ll have a chick to find. Cool Ranch is truly HUGE! You’ll be sent to a great number of islands and places on those islands. It’s pretty easy to forget where you are and which islands or areas the chicks are in. So keep checking your quest card so you don’t miss any of these little ladies. Continue reading →
