    Question Have you completed all of the side quests?

    According to KI's player statistics
    less than one half of one percent (< 0.5%) of pirates above level 10 will ever complete all their quests
    So where do you fall into?

    Also, if you care, please share your opinion on the matter.
    Thank you in advance Pirates!

    Re: Have you completed all of the side quests?

    I do a lot of side quests on a lot of my characters. However, I only do side quests that give: Nautical XP, companion points, and/or companions. I don't go crazy with it and do every little side quest, because its kind of pointless to do a side quest that gives such little rewards (like 60 xp and small amount of gold). Side quests help your chars keep up with their nautical levels, therefore, you don't have to farm ships all the time. I don't think a lot of people have the patience to do side quests, most players I've met or known, want to just rush through the game as fast as possible. To each their own I suppose.

    Re: Have you completed all of the side quests?

    As I said in the other thread, I find side quests pointless because main quests give too many exp. One can reach max level without any side quest, and not even finish Aquila, which is lame.

    I did all side quests up to Marleybone on my first pirate, and now I regret it because I cant finish Aquila (dont want to waste exp)

    On my other pirates I dont do any except to get companions.

    Nautical exp? No need since your companions can go sailing.

    And I have more than enough training points for companions too.

    Re: Have you completed all of the side quests?

    I have almost all side quests for one of my characters, but I stopped trying to finish them after my 100th time of no luck getting bumbaloon hide or whatever. (Something to do with bumbaloons.) Getting drops from Waterworks or Tartarus in Wizard101 is easier than getting the drops that I need in Pirate101...

    That's debatable. In order for companions to even rack up a good amount of nautical XP, you have to level them up (not to mention most of it takes hours). So you can get a terrible companion like Nurse Quinn and yeah, you can give it the sailing boosts but as your levels increase, that amount of nautical xp she gets will barely help. So in order to get them to get good xp, you have to level them up. I usually have my bad companions go sailing and I find it pointless to level up a companion just for the purpose of sailing. Even with my good companions, I make them go sailing before I log out but that doesn't help all that much.

    This is true. For example, at level 18 companions give only 77 nautical XP.

    Many of the side quests have helped me enormously in nautical leveling - I've learned that lesson with my main character, when my pirate hit L50 in MooShu, but my nautical L was only 38 So I had to finish ALL side quests I've been skipping in MooShu.

    Fine

    Re: Have you completed all of the side quests?

    I believe in completing all side quests before moving on to the next world. Not only does most of the funniest humor in the game occur in those out of the way places, but the extra training tomes, nautical experience and companions can only add to the experience of playing the game. If you never do side quests, you'd never meet half of the intriguing NPC's throughout the Spiral or hear the backstory of the various worlds and their inhabitants.

    I think that probably MOST players will do SOME side quests, but we who complete each and every one are a rare breed.

    I do level them up, however only my musks go sailing, since they're the ones with best sailing skill.

    My 3rd pirate which I play sometimes lately is lvl 33, and lvl 33 nautical, no real issue.

    Re: Have you completed all of the side quests?

    Ive done every side quest for my WD aside for a few in aquilla that i had left to do the last time my sub expired...and i didnt see a point in subbing just to finish a few side quests. side quests are a double edge sword, as someone whose character dates back to before the nautical experience and ship fighting changes that came very early into the game the side quests kept my ship leveled. and dont forget the insane amount of tomes you get as well. i never once had to even consider buying them.... mind you it hit max level about halfway thru marleybone so i wasted a whole world of xp but thats beside the point

    Re: Have you completed all of the side quests?

    There are some quest that if I know I can easily and quickly take care of, I like to get it out of the way as soon as possible. Though normally I'm only heavily persuaded to complete a side quest because of the rewards it has to offer. (Nautical XP, gold, and Training Points/Tomes.)
    Hey, what can I say? I am a Pirate, after all.
