Pirate101 Gameplay – Santo Pollo (Extra Content Included!)

We apologize for your post being interrupted. Breaking News released on!

Pre-Sale Bundles are now avaliable on the Pirate101 website! They include… (image source)

These items will only be available for a limited time, so get them really quick!!! The Boochbeard Bundle even includes a Closed-Beta key for extra play-ness!!! 😀 Also, it has been stated on Forbes magazine online Pirate101 will be released in early October so get ready for fun!

What is Closed Beta and how long does it last?

Closed Beta is a testing period where a limited number of players can play Pirate101 and provide game feedback. It will last up until the one week Head Start, so players who buy the Boochbeard Bundle early on will have more of a chance to play Closed Beta than players who wait. At the end of Closed Beta, Pirate characters will be wiped one last time. Once the one week Head Start begins, all characters are saved.

When does my 12 Month Pirate101 Membership Start?

Your 12 Month Membership time will not start until the one week Head Start of the Pirate101 launch. At the end of Closed Beta there will be one final character wipe, and after that the Head Start will begin. Once your 12 Month Membership begins at the one week Head Start, your characters and game items will be saved.

What is the one week Head Start?

When the Pirate101 game launches, Beta players and people who bought the Boochbeard or Gandry Bundle will get a one week Head Start on the game. The rest of the public will have to wait until the one week Head Start is over, and then Pirate101 will be available to everyone. This one week Head Start gives players to get a chance to quest and progress in the game before everyone else.

When do I get my cool new in-game items, like the Parrot Mount and the Castaway’s Cove?

Just like your 12 Month Membership, the in-game items from the Boochbeard or Gandry Bundle will be available to your character at the beginning of the one week Head Start.

Can I get these in-game items without purchasing a bundle?

No, these items will only be available with the purchase of a Boochbeard or Gandry bundle. They will be permanently retiredwhen these exclusive bundles are no longer available. This is the only way to ever get the Scarakeet pet, Castaway’s Cove, Parrot Mount, Cat Pirate Companion, Dread Pirate’s outfit, and the Ruby Slicer weapon.

Will I get a physical Pirate101 prepaid game card?

No, since these are online only bundles, you will not receive a physical card for the Pirate101 Boochbeard or Gandry Bundle.

Will my Pirate101 12 Month Membership Auto Renew?

Yes, your Membership will auto-renew at the discounted 12 Month price point of $59.95 one year after the Head Start date. You can change your Membership at any time by visiting My Accounts.

Thank you, your post will resume!

On Evan Keeler, my Swashbuckler, I’ve gotten all the way to Santo Pollo, Cool Ranch, without using Boochbeard as the first 15 levels! 🙂 I’m going to show you what I’m doing in Cool Ranch. (Skip the beginning of this post if you’ve read my CR gameplay posts and don’t want to see repeat screenshots.) Anyway, so far I’ve…

…Headed to Cool Ranch into Cooper’s Roost Skyway.

Once I got to Cooper’s Roost, I started to look for Merriweather Clark…

…Who had unfortunately been kidnapped by Bison. I taught them a lesson, then they told me why they took Merriweather.

Merriweather told me what I needed to do: find the Red Sash chicken gang. 😀

I fought some ships to find the map to the Red Sash’s hideout, the Hidden Valley. I went there and fixed everything up with the Bison’s graveyard. I went back to see Merriweather…
…But his house had been raided! I went and fought Monterrey Jack the chicken! Next I headed off to Santo Pollo in search of El Toro.

El Toro, the mysterious masked champion of Cool Ranch. Saving the innocent from evil such as the Banditoads, El Toro is a legend. He was almost never seen though. All we know is that he leaves a mark “T.” I am now defending the townsfolk so that I may get El Toro’s attention and get *that* much closer to getting the map. Here’s a quote from just to sum up a little snippet of the Cool Ranch storyline.

Cool Ranch is a land of legendary figures: heroes like the Chicken Rangers, Wild Bill Peacock, and the masked hero El Toro, fighting lawlessness and standing up for the humble settlers; but the wild frontier has also fostered terrible outlaws like Libirdy Valence, El Guapo, and the dreaded Duck With No Name. Smugglers and pirates have always been drawn to Cool Ranch – far from everyplace, the dusty realm is an ideal place to hide.

(Sorry for the short post (other than breaking news 😛 ), I didn’t take many screenshots of my questing, and I haven’t done much.)

It is Decided! (Also, Feature on MooShu!)

I have finally decided for my posts that I will try to do guides, updates to the Pirate101 game, or the Pirate101 website on the weekdays since I will not usually have access to Pirate101 until the weekends. But during the weekends I will try to write as many gameplay posts as I can and shoot lots of videos to post on the blog! Today’s post is: Spotlight on MooShu!

This post will be relatively brief, since many of you will have received a notice email from KingsIsle that said they added a MooShu section to the P101 site. Since I haven’t quested to MooShu in-game, I’ll have to tell you what I’ve heard of it. (…And of course what KI tells us! 🙂 )

After you’ve flown into the beautiful docks of MooShu, the last world in the current Pirate101 game, you’ll see the setting sun, the rose skies, and mountains galore. This
world has been re-elaborated at KingsIsle, and it is brilliant.

MooShu is ruled by the Emperor, who is considered the Child of the Spirit of the Sun, and is served by legions of loyal Samoorai. The Cows of MooShu form the ruling class made up warriors, princes and master artisans. They are attended by Goat bureaucrats and ministers, while the Sheep and Pig peasants humbly work the land. The people of MooShu are notoriously secretive and suspicious of outsiders; foreign ships are only allowed to dock in one port, the resplendent city of Hamamitsu, without special permission, and only the mysterious Wizards have ever walked in the Imperial Skyway or visited the Imperial Palace.

MooShu is filled with spiritual action, down to the Moodha itself. But once the Emperor was cursed with dark magic, the entire realm has fallen into havoc. The bandits lying around the edges of the world began to thrive, taking prey on the poor townsfolk. The Samoorai try their hardest to protect the defenseless, but the Ninja Pigs and Yazookas seem to be getting stronger and stronger, and the outlook of the world overall and the emperor is getting worse and worse. Pirates are adventuring this world in its damaged state to gain profit from the damaged land.
