    We’ve updated the Companion lists to Level 70
  • Epic Promotions For Companions – Quest Guides   Updated 09/2018
    We made a lot of changes here. This post hasn’t been updated since it was originally posted. It needed a lot of help.

    Do you need help defeating the Dark Reflection Scratch? We have a few hints.

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.

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.

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?
