Worlds In The Stormgate

Traveling Between Worlds

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

The Pirate101 Test Realm is Offline

Pirate101 Test RealmWe’re Closed … For the Weekend
September 7, 2018

I was having a good time in the Test Realm today. And I was looking forward to sailing to each world and finding the new quests that have been added this evening and through the weekend.

But alas, the Scurvy Dogs who cater to the Royals in KingsIsle have been chained to their grindstones and put back to work again.

We’ll see you next week. In the mean time you might want to check out what we’ve seen and learned so far.  Visit our Test Realm Observations, we’ve made some updates today.

The Pirate101 Test Realm is Offline

Pirate101 Test RealmI Think We Broke It
September 1, 2018

If you logged in to the Test Realm this morning, you received this message:

The Test Realm is currently offline for the weekend and will be back up sometime on Tuesday. Thank you for testing the game, Pirates, and see you when the Test Realm comes back online!

For those of you new to the Test Realm, the whole purpose is for players to help KI put the new updates through their paces and find the issues BEFORE they are released in the Live Realm. We as players do something for KI and in return we get the chance to see what’s coming before the release. That’s the fun part!

But that also means we Pirates can stress the system so much, the Royals at KI may need to take the test realm offline to make corrections. It’s thankless job, but I’m sure the programmers will make their tweaks as quickly as possible and get us back online soon.

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

Companion Promotion – Bonnie Anne #2

Bonnie Anne - Fox Sniper

Bonnie Anne – Fox Sniper

The Fox Sniper –

Near the beginning of the game, every Pirate meets up with Bonnie Anne. She’s a great Fox and good Musketeer who lends a helping hand from the start of your questing through the spiral.

You can visit our Companion Guide to find a list of all the companions available to each Pirate class within the game. Or return to our Epic Promotion guides for Pirate101 Companions.

As you level up your companions they will occasionally reach epic promotion opportunities. When you first meet Bonnie Anne she is a Fox Musketeer. Bonnie’s second epic promotion occurs when she is promoted to Level 31. At the end of this promotion quest, she becomes a Fox Sniper. You can learn much more about her abilities and skills at this level from Pirate101 Central.

After you applied training points and she reaches this level, she’ll tell you she needs to speak with you. Let’s go to a nearby Tavern so you can talk.

In the Tavern she’ll tell you “Captain – I’ve just got word from Mary, an old shipmate of mine, that my first Captain, Calico Jake, is looking for me – and you too. The letter says Jake needs to find me straight away for some kind of hush-hush job.”

Companion Promotion – Ratbeard #2

Ratbeard Rat Captain

Ratbeard Rat Captain

The Buccaneer Rat Companion

As your Pirate works through the Gunn’s Gold quest in the Skull Island Skyway, you’ll be trying to catch Ratbeard who will become a member of your crew at the end of the quest.

You can visit our Companion Guide to find a list of all the companions available to each Pirate class within the game. Or return to our Epic Promotion guides for Pirate101 Companions.

As you level up your companions they will occasionally reach epic promotion opportunities. When you first meet Ratbeard he is a Rat Officer. Ratbeard’s second epic promotion occurs when he is promoted to Level 28 when, if successful, he will become a Rat Captain. You can learn much more about his abilities and skills from Pirate101 Central.

After you applied training points and he reaches this level, he’ll tell you he needs to speak with you. “Cap’n, I recon I know who killed me old crew. I’ll tell ye in a Tavern cellar. ” Head on over to the nearest tavern and find out what he’s figured out.

In the Tavern he’ll tell you, the Frog who made that Potion he used to knock out his crew is the only one who could have made it a poison. Then Ratbeard tells you he knows “just where I can find him. We needs to go to Port Regal.”

So obviously his quest will require you to have access to Port Regal.
