    Jack's guide to Getting scrip!

    So first off, I did this on my blog, the dragonspyre pirate, however since central doesn't seem to like my links I'll just post the full thing here. Also warning, I didn't include pvp, since some people dont like to pvp. Plus this is just a copy and paste.

    So, in P101 there is a currency called scrip. Its used to buy black market items. However it is difficult to get at times. So here are my 10 best places to farm for scrip. 10 being the worst and 1 being the best. This is a guide for max lvl players since they usually are the ones needing it. Also, I will teach you best how to save it and what you should buy. Alright lets begin!



    10. low lvl area ships. While farming ships in somewhere like cool ranch for scrip is easy and fast, it gives low amounts and not much other things. This is by far the worst way to farm for scrip.
    9. VA2 ships. Like low lvl ships, they give a small amount. are kind of annoying to farm, but they are better because they can give more scrip and more gold. average 12 scrip per ship.
    8. Scout and Escort ships in SI skyway. Far better than VA2, mainly because there are people that will help and you can farm the dread for cool weapons. average, 12 scrip per ship.
    7. Smugglers arena. While it can give a lot of scrip, its long, hard, and most likely companions will die. average around 480 scrip per run.
    6. The Pirate Regatta. While not many people do it, it is solo-able.It drops a certain cats fancy gear, scrip, decorations and pets. So its the best ship farming location for scrip. Average 12 scrip per ship.
    5. The dreadnought. So with the help of the cabin glitch, you can get hundreds of scrip in an hour, more or less. I won't state the specifics of the glitch but due to the fact that a chest can drop 12 scrip and the weapons are very good, This is number 5, but not the best for scrip.
    4. Obsidian Scratch. His gear is not the best and the doom mojo and how far away hurts. But you can get no scrip, 10 scrip or 100 scrip so while its one of the best places to farm scrip its the worst out of the 4 Obsidian key bosses.
    3. Obsidian Blood. He drops his jacket, max version, a decent weapon and not much else, but the scrip is the same amount as all the other key bosses, 0, 10, or 100.
    2. Obsidian Duck of death. He drops the rarest item in game, his mustache, and his gear for muskets is not bad, thing is he is quicker to beat than the last 2. Same scrip drop
    1. Obsidian brass monkey. His gear is bad, not going to lie, but its a quick easy fight, higher chance of more keys to farm since every round he summons minions, and he has the same scrip drop as the rest. He is by far the best to farm for scrip because of all the chances for more runs and its the quickest fight.


    The best things to spend your scrip on is not a big list, just 2 things.
    1. The cabin. Costs 25000 but if you like to decorate buy it.
    2. Your class banner. Costs 12000 but it helps in say farming or helping some friends of the same class. I wouldn't use it but still, nice to have.


    That's basically it! Cya in the spiral!

    Great Scrip guide!
    I didn't see the Wishing Well at the Smuggler's Cove house on your list. Is it because the Scrip given isn't reliable? A pirate can get up to 100 Scrip at a daily visit.

    Also, if a player has all six characters created, and each of them earn scrip, they can "transfer" scrip to the main character by buying the Fat Stack of Scrip for 999 Scrip and trading it through the Shared Bank. The main pirate can then sell it to the Black Market vendor or Honest Tom Purdue for 150 Scrip.

    You exclude the method of morphing champion-rank pets and selling the eggs to a scrip vendor. That's an adequate way to spend some gold!

    Re: Jack's guide to Getting scrip!

    Ya, I know I left out a few. I went mainly the more traditional route. to address some things.
    1. I didn't include the wishing well because Like you said, its not reliable.
    2. This was more a guide for max players, and I assume most people have 6 pirates maxed out and might want some scrip for them (like some certain outfits!)
    3. NP! I just made this because its hard for some people to get scrip
    4. I was aware of that yes, but I tried to follow a few guidelines
    A No pvp. While it is probably one of the best ways to get scrip its not fun for everyone.
    B It has to benefit the pirate in the long run and while doing it.
    C Nothing that may get patched.
    The pet thing, probably wont get patched and you don't have to pvp to get them last I checked (could be wrong!) But I considered this, One of the main things to buy is the cabin. If you like to decorate you know you can go from max to 0 pretty fast. So that didn't meet criteria 2. Plus While wasting gold is fine, having it is even better! (like when your friend needs help with Kane and a companion dies from frenzy.) But ya, glad you all suggested those in the comments, it will help others in-case they dont want to do any of that!

    Contenders sell for only 4 scrip, and it increases with each rank. Champions yield the highest revenue at 75.

    Morphing two champions together every 10 minutes will earn you 450 scrip per hour.
