Aquila Quest (Pt 1: Sato’s Sunglasses)


My new questing series! This will include my quests through books 13 and 14- Marleybone and Aquila. After I got out of MooShu (see Journey to Marleybone if you aren’t sure what I’m talking about), my first quest was to go to Port Regal to get the windstone to Marleybone.

After that I went to MooShu again so I could get the paper permits from the Marleybonian Embassy in Hamamitsu Gardens (by the Marleybone stormgate). To do this I needed Moolong tea, whose only source was apparently from the Yakooza. Egg Foo Yung, the leader told me that I needed to find Sato and stop him, then he would give me the tea. Of course, this was at the end of a 3 hour dungeon!

Whenever you attack Sato (until he is at about 1/3 health) he uses the Witchdoctor ability Shadow Step and teleports to a random square on the battle board, which makes him very tedious to fight. After you get him down, you have a chance at winning the Black Rain Shades, though (which I was not lucky enough to get, this time). After I defeated Sato I went back to Egg Foo Yung for the tea. I have to admit, it didn’t seem worth the work. I went back to the Marleybonian Embassy to get my papers to go to Marleybone and entered the stormgate. I was given a warning by the Marleybonian Ambassador about the war and boy, was she right! You come out right into a lot of Armada Skiffs and some cool NPC pirate ships.

My first task? The Isle of Dogs. To be continued in Aquila Quest (Part 2: Uncanny Incarceration)


Journey to Marleybone (Pt 7: Subata Z)

JourneytoMB Part 7

After I “dinged” level 45, I was on a roll! After defeating General Tso (or actually forcing him to surrender after defeating someone else after he ran away and after I had a short meeting with Rooke and after threatening his pet chicken so he would surrender— Long story) I finished Khotan Skyway! Next thing I knew, I was watching another puppet show about how I would translate the piece of the map that Rooke had taken from Tso who had bought it from Egg Foo Yung— another long story. Credits to The Deathshard on YouTube!

I like how they used Caoism and already had Moodha … But maybe that’s just me. 😉 It also fits with the culture this is based on- KI good job! To talk to Cao Tzu who can translate it, I would have to get to Marazume Castle which is on a giant turtle. (Great.) To summon it, I have to get 5 turtle balls, turtle ball 1, 2, 3, 4, and Z. Shunzang directed me to the first one: Monkey King.

Picture 2013-10-26 16-10-44

To get him (eventually as a companion) I have to do a couple favors for him like getting his golden stick, then fight off his doppelgangers. The next turtleball was from Pigsy. After that was Friar Sand, who you fought after getting a Pearl of Winter to freeze the water below him- Friar Sand is immune above water. He has really good drops too, I’m definitely going back to farm him. Next was Dragon Prince, who I also had to do a few favors for… and the last was Shunzang. He required Moolong tea, which of course was from the Yakooza who wanted me to do a 3 hour dungeon… But anyway after I got that I had all the turtleballs and it was time to summon the Great Turtle.

In Marazume castle I had to fight 5 guardians to prove I was worthy for Cao Tzu: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water.

Picture 2013-11-08 19-11-30


And after that, I finally got to talk to the sage Cao Tzu, finishing my work in MooShu! (rhyme not intended 😉 ) Spoilers ahead: if you don’t want to know the end of MooShu don’t read the dialogue below.

That has completed my “Journey to Marleybone” journey! See you later!

All of the New Pirate101 Ships!

If you already haven’t heard about this, there are 5 new ships that you can get for Pirate101! They include the elusive blue ship which has now been named Sapphire which has sails that, for some reason, are reminding me of Polaris.

How can you get these new ships?

Read more on the Pirate101 website about these AMD product ships which you get “for free” with an AMD graphics card if it fits one of the categories! Check out for more!

Looking to upgrade your computer for less lag in the skyways? Now is the time so you can get a new ship!

Be sure you know that…

These ships all have the same stats

They are arranged in 6 level tiers with the highest being at level 65

What is special about these ships is their unique looks, sails, and figureheads.

All ship components can be upgraded, like other ships.

These ships cannot equip armor, so instead it is built into the stats.

The “Origin” or class of a ship matches the type of graphics card you redeemed- TUL, Visiontek, Club 3D, Diamond, or Sapphire.

Note that these ships are in no way required to advance in the game and that no one is making you pay for a new graphics card. This is just an extra reward if you decide to.

These ships come with only a Figurehead, Sails, Rudder, and a Horn.

If you are going to buy one of these and want to make sure you get the ship, read the specific offer to make sure your purchase matches the requirements for eligibility for the code.

Journey to Marleybone (Pt 6: Meddling in MooShu)

JourneytoMB Part 6

Now, it’s time to go to MooShu! From what Avery told me, I know that Egg Foo Yung, the next person who has a piece of the map, was imprisoned by the Yakooza. I was sent to Hammamitsu Garden, the only place where you can go as a visitor. I had to please lots of people before being smuggled through the seas in a barrel (yes it was awkward) to help the Yakooza before they help me. Lots of work. The first task was to help the Yakooza in a village where the innocent people were getting taxed very unfairly. El Toro had a very funny line about it being the same as Santo Pollo.

Picture 2013-08-19 21-24-17

After I finished that, there was a bunch of helping the Yakooza that I forgot to take screenshots of. Whoops… Well what happened was I was trying to help the Yakooza trust me so that they would let Egg Foo Yung talk to me (since he has the map.) Once I finally talked to him he wanted me to fight Doctor Noh because Wan Mo was killed by the ninja pigs who worked for Doctor Noh, apparently. The next person on the Ninja Pigs list was a friend, the mayor of a village that I had helped. The next thing that I had to do was fight Doctor Noh to stop him, which made Egg Foo Yung tell me he didn’t have the map anymore. Now I have to fight General Tso because he has the map… in a 2 hour dungeon!

Journey to Marleybone (Pt. 4: Haunted)

JourneytoMB Part 4

After the Magnificent Six (seven including me :)) were reunited again, I was sent on a quest to start a range war. Boy, was that hard. You start off by fighting the 12 Wild Bunch ships. Oh my goodness, could there be any more ship battles? (Self: Yes there could be. Every battle could be a ship battle. Self: FINE…) Well, after I finished those ships with some help from other people, I had to stop Buck Bronco in a 1 1/2 hr dungeon. After that… the final part of Tumbleweed Skyway- Old Jailhouse. I had to stop the Wild Bunch once and for all, because they didn’t like being caught constantly.

Picture 2013-06-28 18-32-45

After several interesting battles, I was finished with this skyway and went back to Sly Winkum, who knew about Captain Blood. He told me he was on his crew and that Captain Blood was in Haunted Skyway last. But when I went to Haunted Skyway, they told me they needed help and they needed it ASAP. So then I got sucked into 12 more ship battles: with Ghost Ships.

Picture 2013-07-25 09-08-25

After that, it seemed like it was all Colonel Church needed, so I was sent to talk to Lt. Jim Masterson. He said there was a jailbreak and needed to ask around for what the prisoners were looked like. I went down to the mine and found a “weasely” person I was told about, then was sent into the Comanchero Vortex in search of Crazy Horn, a reckless bison. After I had captured both prisoners, they told Jim Masterson who was the leader of their operations- Captain Foote. I was told to look for him in the Hang ’em Jail in the Dusty Vortex. He was pretty hard, I came out with less than 100 health and all three of my companions defeated.


Next, Colonel Church told me to look for Sabatini in the Abandoned Church. This was rather exciting, because it was my first sighting of Captain Blood.

Picture 2013-07-25 10-17-04 Picture 2013-07-25 10-17-20

After fighting a few of Blood’s minions, I followed Sabatini’s instructions to go to the Isla des los Muertos. They showed me the cards of the past, present, and future. On the table they even had some Treasure Cards. 😉

Picture 2013-07-25 10-26-47 Picture 2013-07-25 10-27-06 Picture 2013-07-25 10-27-32 Picture 2013-07-25 10-27-58 Picture 2013-07-25 10-29-23

Then, I had to go to Santo Pollo to get corn which I was a little confused about. I fed corn to the ravens on the tree of Ravens. They told me “Black Bart,” which apparently is someone who I can use to attract Death if I collect the lost spirits he created in Haunted Skyway. Sounds like a plan! After I had collected 12 lost souls, I proceeded to find Black Bart in the Old Church graveyard. After a fight with Black Bart, I had an interesting meeting with Death that included a puppet show.

Picture 2013-07-25 10-48-44

I learned that Captain Blood and Death had a game of cards, where if Death lost, Blood can live forever. Death was about to win, but then Captain Blood left and never came back. I needed to find some way to get Blood to play his hand. The next place I was headed was back to Tumbleweed because Sly Winkum was part of Blood’s crew. He had something interesting to say, though.

Picture 2013-07-25 10-58-53

The next place I was headed to was Santo Pollo to talk to Don Rodrigo about what he knew. (hehe) Next thing I knew, El Toro, Mustang Sally, and I were off to Gold Creek to find Blood’s hand, because it was cut off at Gold Creek. After we quickly retrieved it, we went back to Sly Winkum so he could tell us where to get the cards. They’re in the cursed town of Miranda, scattered all over. But Miranda happens to be a two-hour dungeon, so that’ll be for the next post. To be continued in Journey to Marleybone: Part 5: Dead Man’s Hand.


Journey to Marleybone (Pt 3: Trouble in Tumbleweed)

JourneytoMB Part 3

Now that I’m in Tumbleweed, it seems that they are being attacked by the Wild Bunch. No one knows how to stop them. No one. Except Timmy. (My video recorder isn’t working, here’s TheDeathshard’s video)

So my quest is to re-band the Magnificent Seven! It all started with Duck Holliday, who lives right in Tumbleweed. He told me the first person I needed to get was Buffalo Bill, since they didn’t really get along very well. Buffalo Bill went from a lawman and now runs the Traveling Medicine Show (what went wrong?). Duck told me that he was a bit of a gambler, and that if I could get him to bet something, he would have to rejoin. I bet him that I could beat Tyson, the chicken pugilist (don’t worry, that means boxer), he would join.

Picture 2013-06-06 11-54-31

I won and finished part 3 of 7. (Duck was already in and sadly, Wyatt passed away.) The next people were Jane Canary, Bill Peacock, and Bat Masterson. Jane convinced Bill, and while they were getting ready my task was to defeat ships for Bat. Grr… After a week of procrastinating, I teamed up with some other pirates and collected six strongboxes from those Banditoads. 6 out of 7! The last was Billy the Kid. Last, but not least! The only thing was, Billy, was kind of in prison. Not kind of. Completely in prison. Jailbreak!

Picture 2013-06-17 15-40-29

Whew! I think you have to fight 6 sets of Frogerales. After everyone was back together, 7 out of 7, the plan was to meet back at the Old Chirp Place. After we got ambushed by the Wild Bunch, we headed back to Tumbleweed to start a range war on the Bunch. To be continued in Journey to Marleybone: Haunted

Journey to Marleybone (Pt. 2: Saving Sally)

JourneytoMB Part 2

So, we left off with me having to defeat 10 Armada ships. Check!

Picture 2013-05-27 13-16-46

After that, I had to do the equivalent of breaking into the Governor’s Mansion: Dreadnaught Regal. After defeating three rounds of clockworks and blowing up lots of Powder Kegs, I was back out. The next thing Catbeard told me to do was the biggie: Fort Elena. Fort Elena, if you don’t know already, is the heavily guarded prison of the Marleybonians, which happens to be storing Mustang Sally and Napoleguin. Ka-ching! So I broke in, learned a new ability or two, and fought some Redcoat guards.

Picture 2013-05-27 15-20-20

Check! After that I kind of had to find Sally. Or Napoleguin. Or both. First I met some other prisoners that I may…

Picture 2013-05-27 15-43-28

…or may not have seen previously.

Picture 2013-05-27 15-43-41

Is he a Phule or something? 😉 Finally I fought more Redcoats, some Armada, more Redcoats. (This is a long, if repetitive, dungeon. Dungeon as in instance and in dungeon.) I found Sally. Armada. Napoleguin. Fancy cell, eh?

Picture 2013-05-27 15-52-35

So much for being in jail. I broke him out and fought about 3 more rounds of Armada while heading out for a breath of fresh air. I finally finished the dungeon and went back to Catbeard. He thanked me for following his/Napoleguin’s plan and sent me off to the town of Tumbleweed. Yay for being back in Cool Ranch!

To be continued in Journey to Marleybone: Part 3 Trouble in Tumbleweed! Thanks for your support and for reading!

Journey to Marleybone (Pt.1: Port Regal)

JourneytoMB Part 1

You know how I was in Port Regal, right? Well, I’m still in Port Regal. I don’t like having to defeat 10 Marleybone ships. It’s tedious and they always gang up on me. Grr… After I finally finished defeating those ships, I reported back to Catbeard.

Picture 2013-05-25 12-21-44

He told me that Marleybone was annoyed, but that we need them furious. He told me that taking the governor’s daughter would anger Marleybone. To get to Mabel, I needed to break in to the Governor’s Mansion. I flew over to Port Regal to learn how from Gilbert and Sullivan. They told me about a secret entrance around the side of the house, and that I would be able to go through the sewer and get to the cellar. Why are us pirates always going through cellars? 😉

Picture 2013-05-25 12-42-42

I fought an admiral down in the sewer (why was he down there?) and then headed up into the secret entrance. The house was actually quite pretty, and no one seemed to notice me in there.

Picture 2013-05-25 12-56-32

Main entrance, but I came out of the kitchen. Figures.

Picture 2013-05-25 12-57-29

Upstairs balcony. Is it just me, or does that painting on the right seem like it could be a potential tapestry/painting teleporter to Wolfminster Abbey? After I brought Mabel back to Catbeard, apparently he was satisfied… With Marleybone. Now I had to “do the same thing to the Armada.” To be continued in Journey to Marleybone Part 2: Saving Sally!


Darkmoor, Here I Come!

Yes, onto the next world of Pirate101! I guess I’m finished with Cool Ranch…

Picture 2012-12-01 09-01-31

EL TORO! Sorry. Anyway, what do I mean by Darkmoor? I mean… this!

Picture 2012-12-01 09-28-11editedx2

Yes, there’s Darkmoor ships. Sorry I’m behind in the storyline, I need to start up in Pirate101 again. Well this again leads us back to the question; is KingsIsle going to add Darkmoor? I just moored it over when I was fighting these ships. (See what I did there?) So just to clarify, I’m not really in Darkmoor, but I fought some ships. I’ve finished Santo Pollo, and don’t really know where I am in Cool Ranch right now. Sorry for the short post, it was just a storyline refresh from me! 🙂
