Test Realm Brings Book XV to Pirate101


The long anticipated Book XV is ready to be tested in the Pirate101 Test Realm! This game update introduces Valencia Part 2, new companion promotions, new powers and much more.

Return to Valencia
Yarr! Adventures await ye in the highly anticipated release of Valencia Part 2, in Pirate101! The story of the battle against the Armada continues within the grand city of Florenza, in the Calabria Skyway. Face off against the Armada's evil leader, Kane, and put an end to his tyranny. Pirates who have completed the quest "A Call for Help" in Aquila should visit Captain Avery to take on the quest "Return to Valencia." You'll know you have completed the required quest if you have the badge Aquila Legend.


With this storyline extension, players will be able to level their characters from 65 to 70 (both Character and Nautical Level), in 2 new Chapters priced at 2,499 Crowns each. In addition, the available gold cap has been increased to 250,000 gold. Several new badges have also been added to commemorate your completion of quests and exploration in Valencia.

Note: the final battle of Valencia Part 2 will not be available to play on Test Realm. KingsIsle is still adding the finishing touches on this epic fight!
