Pirate101 Test Realm is Online

The Pirate101 Test Realm is back online and brings a new Old Scratch promotion, Skeleton Key Bosses, Item Lock and many more quality of life updates that need testing!

World of Dreams
Upon reaching level 70, and promoting Old Scratch to an Undead Houngan, there's an exciting new quest available that takes you to the World of Dreams! Old Scratch will summon you to a tavern to begin your journey. Speaking of Old Scratch, you will notice that the introduction to the World of Dreams also comes with an upgrade for this spooky companion... if you're lucky enough to make it through the battle successfully!

Skeleton Key Bosses
There are four old bosses who have been powered up to now be Skeleton Key Bosses:
  • Captain Blood
  • Brass Monkey
  • Duck of Death
  • Old Scratch
These are meant for the most powerful Pirates, so bring your best crew and your exceptional fighting skills to the battle! 

Item Lock
Next up on the most wanted list is a very nifty and quite useful feature Item Locking! You'll notice a new icon in your inventory that looks like a Doubloon; this will toggle item locking on and off. 

Quest Finder
When you press the Quest Finder Button in your Journal (it's on the last page of your quests), the Quest Helper arrow will now point to the nearest available quest. It will start with the current zone you are in, and then expand to the current world you are in. If it doesn't find any quests in that world, you will need to move to another world and press Quest Finder again. 

When you use Quest Finder, a window will appear telling you where to go and who to talk to, and the Quest Helper arrow will now point to that location!

More Space
You surely have amassed a lot of valuable loot throughout the years of adventuring through the Skyway, so KingsIsle has added some ways to expand the precious storage systems:
They're granting everyone (yes, ALL Pirates) 20 more Bank space for free

In the Crown Shop, some various elixirs that can expand things even more were added:
  • The Expand Backpack Elixir will add 40 slots of backpack space (max 2 per Pirate)
  • The Expand Bank Elixir will add 40 slots of bank space (max 2 per Pirate)
  • The Expand Friends List Elixir will add 25 more friends list spaces (max 2 per Pirate).
Member Benefits
It's good to be a member! KingsIsle is introducing limited time membership benefits, as thanks for being a member of Pirate101. These will turn on occasionally for special events. Stay tuned to Pirate101's social media for announcements on when they'll be available on the Test Realm, but here's what you can expect to see:
