2017 Announcements and Activities

December 2017 Updates

Yuletide Updates -- Gingerbread raiders have invaded the Spiral skyways! Defeat enemy ships in the Skull Island, Westminster, and Calabria Skyways to find them and earn cool loot and badges for defeating these cookie criminals. There are now more hidden, giant snowmen for you to hunt down throughout the Spiral’s skyways. It’s time to set sail and see if you can find them all and earn their badges. Monquista City, Barkley Square in Marleybone, and Florenza in Valencia now have more festive decorations (and present boxes)!

September 2017 Updates

New adventures await those who have completed the quest “Gunn’s Gold.” Avery’s new quests will take you across Skull Island and always guide you back to Zeke’s Party Barge. Once you complete Avery’s initial quests, every 24 hours the diplomats on the Party Barge will offer you a level-banded repeatable quest that have a chance to reward you some of the rarest jewelry and totems from around the Spiral. Once you earn your new badge from completing these quests, a new vendor will unlock on the Party Barge. Drop by the Party Barge often! You never know who or what you might see there!
Practice Ship PvP is here! Players have long requested a zone where they can faceoff in Broadside battle with other players’ ships. We’re happy to add this new form of “practice” ship PvP... with the hopes for more to come! For all those who are at least level three (and nautical level three), Mickey Dugan has a new quest titled “Broadside!” This quest will direct you to the Skipper and open the portal to a random location in our ship PvP zone. It’s sure to be a dangerous place!
TEAM UP LEDGER: Visit the new Join a Team Ledger in Skull Island proper to find a group for adventures! It will display a list of all teams that are waiting for additional members. Only the dungeons and worlds that your Pirate already has access to will be listed. Press the “Refresh” button at the bottom right to update the list and look for additional teams.


2016 Announcements and Activities

September 2016 Updates

The Rogue Armada Dreadnaught arrives in the Spiral! The Dreadnaught is a fearsome foe, and reports say that it never travels without an escort of dangerous Armada ships. You’ll definitely need to bring plenty of friends if you intend to tackle this foe!

Once the Dreadnaught has taken enough punishment it will blow open – and pirates level 50 and higher can storm it for all that ill-gotten loot! But be quick about it – the sigils on the newly-defeated Turret Boss will only be available for a short time after the boss is defeated.

That’s right – all their plunder can be yours if you win the day, and you may even be able to pick up a few “haywire” Armada weapons yourself…

NEW EPIC RANKS: Rank 4 and 5 Epic Talents are now available via talent-boosting pets, items, and powers.

June 2016 Updates

Valencia is now live with many fun and existing new things for players to try out! Please feel free to contact a Wiki-Master or post a thread in the Wiki Forum if you have any questions. Remember that all content must be from the live game!

2013 Major Site Upgrade!

The Pirate101 Central Wiki is reopened after incorporating a major new upgrade! See the announcement thread here for more details about the upgrade. These features include:
  • New look!
  • We now have Semantic MediaWiki enabled! Templates have not been set up to utilize functionality yet, however.
  • Quicker Page load times
  • Reintroduction of Quest Goal images
  • "Drop by" and "Items that have this ability" lists are now fully automated for Itema and Ability Pages
  • Tooltips have been set to be used on Creature and Vendor pages. See [Tribal Crew Pack] for great example of use of this feature.
  • The naming protocols for pages have been changed because MediaWiki allows for the use of parentheses in the page titles. This has led to hundreds of dead links throughout the wiki. Many have been fixed, but there are still hundreds remaining that will be fixed in the coming weeks.
  • Uploading images no longer requires file names to match the file destination in the Wiki.
  • We have a handy new Sidebar!
  • Terminology for Totems have been normalized throughout the Wiki.
  • Templates can be loaded into pages by using the buttons shown above the page creation field.
  • There is now a new search available to the Wiki.
