Selling Gear: The Bazaar & The Vendors

Harvey Deuce
The Bazaar Trader

Where and How To Buy and Sell Your Gear

You’ve had your first battles and earned a few rewards. Or your backpack is full and you need to sell some loot. Or maybe you want to purchase some new gear, or training tomes for your crew and you need some gold. Whatever your reason, it’s time to sell some of the loot you’ve collected.

There are various ways to sell items. At the Bazaar, at a gear Vendor, or to a Free Trader. But hold up before you go hitting that Sell button. Are you sure your selling that item in the right place? Are you getting the best price for your loot? You mean you didn’t know there was a difference? Yep, there is.

Not all place will give you the same amount of gold for your loot. Like any merchandizing business, there’s a supply and demand component to the Pirate Spiral. And while it’s might be easy and convenient to sell all your loot in one place, you’re not doing yourself any favors by dumping your backpack in one place. It’s worth it to shop around a little.

Dressing Your Pirate – Stitching

Stitching and Unstitching Gear

While creating your pirate captain, you have the opportunity to pick their style and dress them the way you’d like to look. this is the first Gear you receive for your pirate. But that pirate gear eventually gets replaced as you pick up new items through battles and purchase. You’re able to buy new gear with gold, which you collect as a reward for winning a battle. But you can also purchase gear through the Crown Shop. But that Crown gear will cost you real money. You can also collect gear through the Pirate 101 booster packs: the Prepaid Game Cards.

Our pirates have gone through a wide range of looks.

Quest Journal – The Tower of Moo Manchu

The Tower of Moo Manchu

The Tower Battle of Agony

By far this quest is the hardest in all the spiral, at least as of this writing. There are 10 levels to get through, 9 of which have bad guys. And of course the top-level is where you find the biggest bad guy of all, Moo Manchu and his toughest minions. Most of the minions throughout the tower are level 55 and up. Moo Manchu himself, is level 65.

These are not easy battles and I have yet to get through the entire tower in less than 2 hours. Yes, I said 2 hours. That’s if all the players in the team are level 65 and up. There’s a reason most gamers suggest not taking on the Tower unless you’re over level 60, and some suggest waiting until level 65. More on that later in the team up.

But the gold you can accumulate in the tower, is staggering! With 4 players, you can find 150,000 to 200,000 pieces of gold. Or more, depending on how many Treasure Bath doubloons you and your team can drop during a battle. And then there’s the coveted badges! More on that later.

First, you have to find the quest, as it’s not part of the main quests through MooShu. And there are quests that you’ll have to complete first. Starting with the Manchurian Candidate and ending with defeating Moo Manchu in the Tomb of Kow Cheng.

Zeke’s Quest: Find The Aquila Eagles

Prospector Zeke Quest – Aquila

Welcome to Aquila and the Achaean Way. The home of heroes and mythological beasts. Your first quest into this new world will send you to Nova Aquila. It’s a beautiful place with a vast array of art and music. Don’t you just love the big statues hovering over the dock and village?

Like most of the worlds, you’ll find Zeke has traveled here on another business venture. From the dock, run through the dock door (it doesn’t matter which one) and up the hill to the village. In the center of the isle, you’ll see a large pool outside the stone arches. Run around the pool and you’ll find Zeke standing near the cliff edge

He’ll tell you about his business deal with Dueling Dalton, who wants to establish the Hotel Aquila in Cool Ranch. Mr. Dalton would like some authentic decor for his hotel and he’s sent Zeke to find the Aquilan Eagles.

As with most Zeke Quests, 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 eagle. So don’t think you can get the quest from Zeke and then just set off to find them. And you don’t want to have to repeat a dungeon, just to get to the stone.

X Marks The SpotBelow 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?

Zeke’s Quest: Find The Rolling Stones

Prospector Zeke Quest – Marleybone

Welcome to the Westminster Skyway, the land of Dogs…and a few cats, oh and the Foxes too. Marleybone is at war with the Armada and you will enter this skyway at night. It’s a dark and gloomy place as you’d expect a war torn place to be. But not to worry, you’ll have a lot to do here, so you won’t have time to take in the scenery.

When you first enter Westminster, you’ll be sent to the Isle of Dogs. As with other worlds, you’ll find another set of Zeke Quest items to discover.  Your initial quest should be sending you to the local Tavern. And that’s where you’ll find Zeke, sitting at a table. So talk to him before you run off.

Zeke will tell you why he came to Marleybone and that he’d appreciate your help in finding some Rolling Stones for his friend Jack Flash. ..yeah it’s cute. Wonder if Mick and the band know they’ve been immortalized in the Pirate Spiral.

As with most Zeke Quests, 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 stones. You don’t want to have to repeat a dungeon, just to get to the stone.

Zeke Quest: Find The Shonen Knives

Prospector Zeke Quest – MooShu

I love MooShu, it’s one of the prettiest worlds in all the Spiral. And of course you’ll find another Zeke Quests to keep you busy exploring the many areas of this world.

When you first arrive in MooShu you’ll be sent straight to this world’s main city, Hamamitsu. Once you dock, leave your ship and head through the city gate. On the far side of the island, you’ll see a large gazebo beyond the garden dragon. Standing outside the building, you’ll find Zeke. He has another quest for you to find some missing items.

This time he’ll tell you about the deal he had with Lord Shonen for some knives. But they’ve gotten lost. As usual, Zeke will give you a nice reward for your help once you have located them all. Continue reading
