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.

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.

But not to fret, you’ll probably like some of the new companions offered in the future.
