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.

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.

The Pirate101 Test Realm Observations

Pirate101 Test RealmGetting Started In The Test Realm
August 31, 2018 – Updated September 7, 2018

Entering the test realm, you’ll notice that your entire crew will need to be trained. One thing that doesn’t transfer between the Live realm and the Test Realm are the talent settings for your crew. So be for warned. The first thing you’ll need to do once you enter, is to set the talents for your Crew members.

If you’re a level 70 Captain, that’s a lot of crew folks. You might want to simply set your first two or three rows, on your first crew page and leave it at that. But one member you’ll need to set for sure, is Old Scratch. Continue reading
