Beta Work Around – Michael Stone

The Disappearing Captain Michael Stone

After the game update on Sept. 27th, there has been an issue with completing the Message in a Bottle quest.  You receive the quest in Flotsom and discover that the Captain was shrunk with his ship and placed in a bottle with it. Egads!

Your mission is to save the captain from the bottle. Once you have completed all the required elements, you are sent to the Watermole Village on Skull Island to talk to the captain. You might see him at first, but when you approach him, he disappears.

Or you can approach him and talk to him for the first section of his conversation. He thanks you and says he has a treasure for you in return. After he finishes those first words he disappears before he can give you the treasure and complete the quest.

Dead-Eye Morgan said: “Maybe he went back into the bottle but no one else in the village will talk to me about it.” (If you don’t read the community Message Board on Pirate101, you’re missing out on some pretty good laughs). Not to mention some great ideas for getting around some of the remaining bugs in the game. Continue reading

Really Big Updates on 09/26

Pirate101 Beta TestKI Makes Several Small Tweaks and Adjustments

If you were excited to participate in the Ship Party on Wednesday and were disappointed it was cancelled, here’s you’re chance to find out why. Check out One-Eyed Jack’s Captain’s Log—Spiral Date 413802

Check out the updates that occurred Wednesday evening and see what’s been done to the game to prepare Pirate101 for its opening day!

And if you were like us and you showed up for the party anyway, you got a chance to see a lot ships hanging out in the Skull Island Skyway. It was truly awesome. I wish I had thought about it last night and had taken a screen shot to mark the event. But I didn’t think about that until today. Even at 7:30 there were 10 to 15 ships gathered around checking each other out. It was truly a neat thing to see.

Jack has mentioned that the party wasn’t completely cancelled, it’s simply been rescheduled. So stay tuned and look for the next gathering coming soon to a skyway near you!
