    Companion Tasks - Plunderin'

    Plundering is the task where your companions will return Gold for your pirate. Here are some tips and ideas for gaining the most advantage you can from this task:

    1. This task can be given to any companion at Level 8 or above. They will return with gold amounts based on their level. For example, a Level 8 companion will return with 20 Gold after about 12 minutes. A Level 12 companion will return in about 15 minutes with 22 gold, and so on. Max level companions will return with 597 gold per trip. Once the pirate nears the gold limit, Plundering will no longer be available.

    2. The companion will occasionally return with a second amount of gold, again based on its level, as a bonus. At top levels, this is 30,000 Gold.

    3. The first companion sent will always take the shortest time to return, the timer gets longer as they gain levels, not quite doubling with each subsequent companion. At highest levels, too many companions assigned, and they could take days to return.

    4. This task is generally ignored in favor of Scavenging, since gear can be stored in the shared bank until lower level pirates are ready to use it or sell it. Unwanted items can be sold for more gold either in the Bazaar or at regular vendors. However, if the pirate's backpack is constantly in danger of overflowing, Plundering could be the better option, and that bonus gold is very nice to see.

    5. The Plunderer ability adds 10% more gold per trip. All companions can train the first level of Plunderer but Swashbucklers can train an additional 2 levels -- Rank 2 for 15%, and Rank 3 for 25%. This means that your idle Swashbucklers can be fetching much more gold than other crew.


    Is there anything I've missed about using Plundering? Please add your thoughts.

    I can't say I've used Plunderin' much over the years, but maybe someone else has been curious about this task and its rewards.

    Re: Companion Tasks - Plunderin'

    Since there is an overabundance of gold in this game, no.... i never use this order any more. When I was leveling, yes all time to help purchase more tomes.
