Pirate101 Advanced Companions

All classes will be getting a brand new Companion to journey with them alongside the plethora of colorful Companions already obtained through the course of regular gameplay.

Getting Started
First things first! When you first log in after this update, you’re going to immediately receive a one-time bonus of a number of Companion training tomes equal to the number of Companions you own!

Congratulations! We want to make sure your Companions are ready for action, so take this important opportunity to help get started right.
Orders are the heart of the new Companion system - whenever a Companion isn't eligible for combat, they’ll be able to perform jobs that can earn companion experience, gold, nautical experience, items, and more!

In addition to these upgrades, you’ll also notice changes in Companion management revolving around combat. The first three Companions on your roster will now always appear in combat, but these Companions suffer new consequences if they are defeated in battle. Companions can now be wounded, and they must either wait until they are fully healed or be cured by Miracle Mitch, a new NPC in Avery’s Court to get back in action quickly, but for a price.

Miracle Mitch has set up shop in an all new expanded Avery’s Court

Get ready to take control of your crew and manage them like the pirate captain you are!

Companion Management 2.0

At the heart of Companion Management 2.0 is a fundamental change: Companion selection in combat is no longer random. Removing random selection also makes it possible to set which Companion always goes second, third, and fourth in the round, based on their place on your Companion roster. As Captain of your crew, you still go first each turn.

Companion Orders
Instead of benching your Companions, now you can put your crew to work! Instead of appearing in combat, your Companions can now perform tasks by following your pirate's orders.

Open your Companion management screen by pressing “u” and select a Companion who doesn't look busy. Click the orders button, select the task you want the Companion to do and click the Start button. Orders take time to complete - the countdown will appear on the Companion’s portrait in the Companion Management Screen. Your Companion can’t fight until the task timer expires.

Special notes:

  • Companions must be at least 8th level before they can take special orders.
  • If all your Companions are on bed rest or following orders, you can cancel the task or skip to the end by clicking the Finish Task button on a Companion. Finishing a task early incurs a Crowns fee.

Each task also has an associated Companion talent, which increases the rewards a Companion earns from that task. The tasks and their talents are:

Bed RestScrapperRecover from wounds faster
Plunderin'PlundererCollect gold (And sometimes hit a gold mine!)
Scavengin'ScavengerCollect player loot
Sailin'CannoneerCollect Nautical XP
Pet Wranglin'Pet WranglerCollect Pet loot
Keel-Haulin'OfficerCollect training tome
Brawlin'BrawlerCollect Companion XP

Thanks for all the extra loot, Ratbeard!

Companion Wounding
Your Companions’ new abilities are accompanied by new risks: a Companion’s defeat in combat now has a potentially greater impact. Defeat in combat leaves a Companion Wounded, with an automatic order of bed rest. At early levels, bed rest will be too short to even notice or nothing more than a quick nap, but at higher levels your Companions can be out of commission for a lot longer.

Companions in Bed Rest cannot appear in combat - the next Companion down on your roster after all your active Companions will appear in their place. You can choose to wake your Companions from Bed Rest early by cancelling their Bed Rest orders, but they will suffer penalties in combat. The more times they've been wounded without recovering, the worse the penalties become, but a Companion can have no more than three wounds.

Life Fountains will no longer revive your Companions from their wounded status. To heal a Companion’s wounds, you’ll need to either wait for the timer to expire or make a visit to Miracle Mitch in Avery’s Court. Miracle Mitch is a new NPC who occupies a brand new building beside the Swashbuckler Trainer’s house. Miracle Mitch can to remove your Companion's wounds, but his cures require expensive ingredients - Mitch passes the cost on to you, demanding gold in exchange for his services. As your Companions advance in levels, healing their wounds will get more expensive.

New Class Companions
Players will receive a quest around level 4 to take a special class Companion into your crew. These Companions are exclusive - they do not have variants anyone can purchase in the Crown Shop and are designed to enhance and complement the play style of your pirate's class.
Get to know your new friends!

  • Musketeer: Chantal Livingstone—Colorful daughter of an old friend of Ol’ Fish Eye.
  • Swashbuckler: Fan Flanders—Famous frog thief recently escaped from Newgate Prison and friend of Morgan Lafitte.
  • Witchdoctor: Carcarius Grimtooth—The greatest shaman of the Grimtooth Clan.
  • Buccaneer: Peter Quint—Bounty Hunter Pelican of Skull Island and associate of Mordekai.
  • Privateer: The Marchioness—Monquistan Privateer out to strike a blow against the tyranny of the aristocracy.

Pirate101 announces new advanced pet system

Pirate101's pet system is getting an update, and KingsIsle tells us that a new test realm will soon open its doors to showcase the changes. Pet owners will be able to send their minions on various world-based training missions which will raise their level, unlock talents and powers, and more.

The devs are also adding the ability to PvP in a pet battle arena as well as a new quest that details the new advanced pet system. KingsIsle has penned a lengthy dev diary explaining how everything works. You can read it after the cut.

Advanced Pets Incoming to Pirate101

An all new Test Realm will open its doors soon that will feature an amazing boost to the Pet system in Pirate101. That's right! Now announcing a new era of Advanced Pets: Skull Island has been asked to participate in the Great Petathelon on Bestia in the Circus Maximus, the grand new Pet Pavilion in the Free-to-Play area of Pirate101!

In the Circus Maximus you'll find Pet supplies, a Morphing Tent to create new Pets, and a Pet battling arena where you can test your Pets' grit against the guts and guile of other players' Pets.
In Bestia you'll learn more about your Pets: they've always been loyal allies that fight at your side in combat, but now you can raise their level by training-even getting them higher level than your Pirate!

The Pirate101 Pet system may be a little different than what you're used to! You'll be sending your Pets out to train on world-based activities (Like Crane Meditation in Mooshu or Hay Bailing in Cool Ranch) while continuing on with whatever you were doing previously in Pirate101.

In general, Pet training activities take three things: Time, Energy Cost (you'll have a new orange globe by your health and mojo potion indicators), and most require special pieces of Pet Gear. After training your Pet, you'll be given a chance to feed your pet a snack to grant them even more experience or stat upgrades!

Dozens of all new Pets can be found on vendors, as loot, as quest rewards, or purchased from the Crown Shop. When you get a new pet, it'll start out as an egg. Once a Pet's egg hatches, you train your Pet to increase its level and improve its combat abilities both in regular combat and in the Pet dueling arena. Once your Pet levels up high enough, you can combine your Pet with others through morphing to create new Pets with the traits of both!

General Improvement Quick Facts

- Your old Pets will be converted to Advanced Pets at a level that ensures you keep the power of your original Pet, but be warned . . . Pets no longer level as your Pirate does. If you don't train your new Pets, they won't grow up!

- Your Pet's chances to appear in combat is variable with new talents that can cause them to appear more often, but the really great news is that now each round they will have a chance to show up!

- There's a new Pet quest that's going to walk you through everything you need to know about the new Pet system.

- As Pets gain levels, their combat prowess improves, their size increases, and they unlock new talents and powers.

- There are all new badges for Pets and even one for finding hidden pet snack vendors.

- There's an all new Pet Battle Arena on Bestia.

Pet Battling

Speak to Decius Duelmaster in the Circus Maximus to join a Pet battle. You can choose to challenge other players in Pet Battle PvP, or practice in a Pet Practice Match. Select up to four of your Pets to enter the arena!

You unlock the ability to fight with more than one Pet by competing in Pet battles and earning badges. Fight 5 battles and you unlock the ability to fight with two Pets. Compete 15 times, and you unlock the ability to fight with three Pets. Compete 30 times to unlock the ability to fight with all four!

To do well in Pet battling you'll need to cheer and cast the right powers at the right times.
Once the battle is over and whether you win or lose, you earn Pet gear and perhaps some snacks. Winning the battle grants richer rewards, and the number of opponent Pets raises the rewards even higher.

Pet Powers and Talents

Talents and powers have a rarity, and some of them are rarer than others. Your Pet will have 10 potential talents or powers, but it will only unlock one new talent or power each time it increases its age rank. In general, you'll find a lot of useful talents and powers in your Pets' pedigrees; in fact both Talents and Powers will be able to be used in combat (as opposed to there being a pedigree strictly based on a pet activity like Pet Derby in Wizard101).

Age ranks change every ten levels. The age ranks and what they unlock are as follows:

Level.................... Age Rank.................... Unlocked Abilities
1-10..................... Hatchling.....................
11-20.................... Baby ..........................1 talent
21-30.................... Teen.......................... 1 power
31-40.................... Adult.......................... 1 talent
41-50.................... Ancient....................... 1 power
51-60.................... Epic............................ 1 talent
61-70.................... Mega........................... 1 power

Unleash your Pets (and mounts!)As a final and much requested benefit from the Advanced Pets system being implemented in Pirate101, we're happy to announce that you'll now be able to place your Pets and Mounts in player housing! Enjoy!
