We then took Jewel through and helped her pass her own Boss Battle! :banana: :banana: :banana:




Well then, guess i didn't need to log in just now. Sorry Jewel, had planned on helping but I guess it wasn't needed after all. Congratulations on completing the boss battle.

You seriously are wanting to battle it out with us, aren't you? LOL!

Are you more interested in ship vs. ship or player vs. player combat?

I can organize something for DIS players if you'd like.

Still can't edit my page but no biggie.

News from the Test Server:

*Players can now replay the Black Pearl Boss Battle even after defeating the Goliath! (Wootness!!!)

Some others of interest:
*Trainer NPC's at local blacksmiths can now retrain your weapons, by retraining a weapon you can refund all your spent skill points and allow you to re-choose your skills for that same weapon
*Captains now have more control over who boards their ships with a new ship-boarding persmission system. Additionaly, players at dignhies now have a better interface for finding ships to board.
*The maxium size of Guilds has been increased to 500 members.

There are several more release notes on the Test Server but was most excited about the ability to redo Boss Battle.

Hey Jedi,

Sorry, I could not make it today, my computer is being updated as I speak!

I AM FINALLY OUT OF MY COMPUTER NIGHTMARE!!!:banana: :banana: :banana:

Right now files are being backed up to be placed onto my spanking brand new office computer which has a wicked processor, oodles of memory and enough space to house the national archives inventory.

I won't be available until Wednesday but then I am off Thursday and Friday - had to use some vacation days since I can't roll them over to next year. So I can play then.

Can't wait until all my updates are completed and files are restored on my new office computer, it has been a nightmare since August!!!!

Hiya! My daughter has a 4-H competition that won't be done until 7:30 or 8pm. I can just come in when I get home, unless we want to try for sat? I'm still fine with tomorrow though, just might be a tad late. If nothing else we can PVP as undeads, that always gives me a good laugh!!

I have completed all the other level 5 weapon quests, but am stuck on one of the first tasks that Tia gives you for the Taboo Doll. The task (picture below) seems to indicate that there is a digspot in the village area of Kingshead. I have never seen or heard of a digspot in that area and I have recently spent at least 2 hours trying to find it. Has anybody completed this task?

Note: The 2 digspots in the first courtyard on Kingshead do not work and give the "Nothing of Interest" message.

I think there is a dig spot in the village area hidden behind a couple houses. I haven't done the task, but I remember finding it once and wondering what task it was for. I remember it being near an arch. Hope that helps!

You got it Queen, but you must enter thru the archway. just as you enter the courtyard from the path of trees go left the arch is on the left guarded by a few EITC . enter the smaller courtyard and battle a few more, the dig spot is kinda in the middle. Good luck!

Well I found it with some help (OK, lots of help with pictures) from another site.

To be more complete when you enter the village from the tree lined hill look on the left at the buildings. The second set of small stairs leads up to a open archway. Go through that archway and you will see 2 trees in a grassy area. Go about half way between and just a little past the trees and you will find the dig spot.

...This will come in handy when I start that quest!...trying to knock off some of the old privateering and clothing quests out of my journal before beginning these new weapon quests...I'm now ready to begin!...
I have to say a nice word for POtCO on these new quests. This task was the only one that was difficult for me. Even though there are ships to sink, there are not nearly as many as some of the other recent quests needed. However some of the new bosses are HARD, so be sure to have some friends with you (or do them soon when many other strangers are still doing them). By hard I mean mid 30 level bosses that would have killed me (level 38 now) pretty quickly if strangers hadn't stepped in and helped.

A couple of tips that worked for me:
- Get all the quests at 1 time and run around getting all the talking, easy parts, and easy land parts done before getting into the sailing. This way when multiple quests have you sinking ships, you can go after the ships needed to satisfy all the quests. For example a quest want you to sink any EITC, another needs lvl10+ EITC, and a third needs lvl20+ EITC - just go after the lvl20+ to satisfy all the quests.
- Since most of the talking will be on islands you can teleport to, go back and talk after you complete any task. This way you can get the next task that might be the same as other tasks you already have.
- There is one task that says sink a Spanish skeleton ship - it completed for me when I sank a regular skeleton ship (no boarding and fighting needed).
- When sailing to Kingshead it is much easier to sail from the Spanish Privateering Island. However since there might be French ships lurking about you do not want to do this slowly. I suggest immediately get your ship pointed at Kingshead, use Ramming Speed for a quick start, and then Full Sail. By the time you get in the midst of normal enemy ships these skills should be recharged if you need to make a fast getaway.
- Even though it will take some time, your quota of EITC Grunts, Hired Guns, and Mercenaries can all be found in Fort Charles at Port Royal. Best place for mid level undead are in the Catacombes on Padres.

May your plunder be plentiful and your friends numerous,:thumbsup2

Thanks for the tips! I wish I could do all of them at once, but my weapons aren't to 20 yet. I'm trying, but some of them are hard to level up. I can only throw grenades in Kingshead for so many hours before I get totally bored.

Grenades do not have a level 4 or 5 weapon. In fact their are no levels to the grenade weapon at all, just different types of first level grenades.

There are 5 weapons (cutlass, pistol, voodoo doll, dagger, and voodoo staff) with the 5 levels (level 1 given after a quest, levels 2 & 3 bought after a certain weapon level attained, and level 4 & 5 given after a quest that is received after a certain weapon level is obtained).

There are 5 weapons (cutlass, pistol, voodoo doll, dagger, and voodoo staff) with the 5 levels (level 1 given after a quest, levels 2 & 3 bought after a certain weapon level attained, and level 4 & 5 given after a quest that is received after a certain weapon level is obtained).

Shows how much time I've focused on my grenade, I barely know anything about it. I did finally get my doll to 20 yesterday. And I'm trying hard to get the dagger to 15. I spend a lot of time in Tortuga with the brigand boss.

Thanks for the tips, Out!! :hug:

I could care less about my grenade - it's level 8 :rotfl2: But I don't see the point in working it if there are no weapon unlocks for it...

Don't forget to try out the new ZOMBIE Dance! It's hysterical! Just like the Thriller Dance! Wish we had the music to go along with it :)

So, if i start playing pirates again do y'all have room in your guild for a fellow former vmk player and diser. I am somewhat out of the loop about the pirates game now since it has been about four months since i have played. I'm sure alot has changed in that time.

Wow, it's been almost two months since a post has been made on this thread. Sorry!

The sad fact is, most of our guild members have already completely all their quests, including Boss. Unless Disney gets on the ball and releases new quests, there's not much left to do on Pirates anymore. :( I can only take about 10-15 minutes of leveling up, and then I'm DONE! Unless there's another Roo Rocker on to do it with.... but not many signing on anymore... for reason noted above.

Would love to hear from any of you what you've been up to. Is there any interest in getting together for a sail? Mostly to socialize, I guess. :)

Pete pointed out to me this morning that POTCO is having an event this weekend, 1/17-1/19 - Feats of Strength. I copied this from the pirate site if anyone is interested in joining up.

Interesting to note it involves a swim around Port Royal (GASP!!!!) :rotfl2: :lmao: :rotfl2:

Feats of Strength Contest

Fancy yourself a mighty Pirate? Then sign up here for the Feats of Strength Contest!

This event takes place January 17, 18, and 19 from 11 AM - 2 PM (Pacific Time) on Tortuga. All Pirates are invited to compete - or just cheer on a mate. To enter the contest - which includes a footrace, swim, and enemy battle - submit your in-game Pirate name, current level, and the day you prefer to compete (and a secondary choice) - we'll publish a schedule for Pirates participating on Friday, January 16.

Note: We will make every effort to accommodate your requested competition day, however due to the turnout expected for this event, participants are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Pete and I have both already signed up today. I believe he signed up for Saturday afternoon. I went with Monday. pirate:

Hugs, my fellow Roo Rockers! Hope all is well with each and every one of you! :hug:

Well, unfortunately, even though both Pete and I signed up in time, neither of us were scheduled for this event which was disappointing. Apparently, they had more people sign up than they could fit... I heard it was pretty chaotic and laggy anyways...

I just miss my pirate game. Need some new event or quest to kick start things again. pirate:

I signed up and didn't make the cut. I did go to watch it anyway. There were a lot of no-shows. When I say "a lot" I mean 90% of the people did make the cut didn't bother to show up for their time. So the GM Ben gave those of us standing around a chance to fill in.

So I did get to run the course one time. I came in a close fourth. The prize was to have GM Rose whisper something in your ear. Hate that I missed that. :sad:

I am all over that if anyone is interested. I haven't ship battled in quite some time, but I imagine with most people done with those quests that the waters over there are fairly quiet.

Do we have enough interest to crew two ships for some "not-so-friendly" battle?

There seems to be a new event posted on pirates home page for this weekend and its all about crews and or guilds. :thumbsup2

Making Friends for a Purpose

The Marceline Guild recently uncovered a plot devised by the EITC to change the Caribbean forever ... It's more important than ever that Pirates stand together and work together to protect our way of life! Are you in a Crew? Have you joined a Guild?

Join Captain Walter and his Crew on the docks of Port Royal this Friday, January 23 between 7 - 9 PM Pacific Time in the Barano Ocean. You will have the opportunity to learn more about Crewing and the opportunity to Crew with the GMs! You'll set out to sea with members of the Marceline Guild and help them sink EITC ships (to thwart their evil plans)! Meanwhile, obtain Crew Bonus to increase your Notoriety, boost your Cannon Skills, and earn major loot from the plunder obtained by sinking treasure-filled EITC ships. See you on the docks mate!

This was about the least thought out official event that POTCO has had. Not only was the one ocean they were on consisitently full, but the one war frigate they were sailing only held 11 members (Xavier and Walter were on the same ship). From what I heard Xavier sailed while Walter talked.

I got on POTCO about a half hour after the event started on Friday night. It only took me about a half hour trying to be able to get on the ocean. When I got to the docks they were both crowded (at least 100 at big dock and about 25 at small dock) just waiting for the ship to return. I waited around through 4 sailings and never got picked, so decided to sail my ship along with theirs. They went after EITC, but sunk most anything in sight before they got to the Sea Vipers (:sad2: ). They did take down a few Navy Kingfisher flags and succeeded in capturing them all. In the 3 times I sailed my ship with theirs the toughest thing they ever took on solo were the Kingfishers and 1 Maurander with 2 other ships help.

After about an hour of trying to get some hints of upcoming events or changes I logged off with no new info. I only resubscribed to Pirates for a half year when my initial subscription ran out and unless they make some major changes soon it may be my last time.

If you don't mind a non-roo joining in Tuesday at 8pm ET would work for me as well. I could sail on either ship to balance the sides (sorry guys, but being with a bunch of wenches appeals to me).

I also could help anybody with any quests they still have open. I especially like sailing if that happens to be a quest that needs completing.

With the new updates I don't see half of what I should see. I do believe they are working on some of that now. Funny, I see everything on the Test Server.

I was able to shoot with the cannons, I just couldn't actually see where they were, I had to run into to them and see that "Press Shift to Shoot" in order to use them.

I also ended up in the water the first time we sank, then I tried to go back to the island and I ended up underground.

Wow, I was just on the test server now, I must say I have never seen this many people on it at one time. Nice to finally see more people there.

I like it! I hated it at first because I was so lost and twisted around with everything. But now that I have had a chance to get familiar with it, I do think it is better than it was before. For me it just took some getting used to.

There seems to be more to the story than just a new port royal, this is from..- Captain Walter

The explosion which leveled Port Royal not only changed the town but set into motion events that would change the Caribbean forever. Many Pirates, merchants and townsfolk were suspicious of the official explanation Lord Beckett provided and wanted a thorough investigation. As his laughter echoed across the ocean, Lord Beckett refused - which left everyone in the islands wondering what the EITC were trying so hard to hide ...

IT DOES NOT WORK IF YOU WERE ALREADY A MEMBER!

I accidentally ordered a code, and tried to enter it, but it would not let me. Even if your only membership was with the VMK code, you still can't use the DMR code.

Well you were in jail! I thought you knew about the brownie stash that the SavvyPirates guild keeps in each jail cell. When we used to spend a lot of time there it was a good way to get up, kick the door down, and get back questing after falling in the cell.

I did finally master sailing, picked up a level on voodoo doll and staff, and about 1/2 level notariety yesterday. Why did they have to do this on a weekend we had a movie planned, a lunch at WDW planned, AND the Guild Wars birthday event was happening (luckily that goes to Wednesday)?

threeboysmom

Sssssshhh! You don't have to broadcast it! ;)

At least now that I know there are brownies in there, it's not such a bad place to be after all...

I should max my cannon and my pistol tonight (if I can stay awake). All that will be left is one more level on dagger. (well, except for stinking grenades, but I don't want to talk about that...)

Are any of you "Rocking Our Roos" guild members still playing?

I let my membership expire when they blocked family accounts from playing together at the same time. I'm wondering if there's anything going on that's really worth renewing the membership for.

Also, are any of you using the Roos website. It's not expensive to keep it up but if no one is using it I'll probably let the domain expire.

So Roos, where ya at? pirate:

:cool1:i logged on the other day but since I let my membership expire as well, I can't get to most of my weapons or any of my ships. I see you can top at at 50 instead of 40 and most of the weapons have increased as well.They are supposed to release the Kraken soon too and there are a few new bosses.I will wait to see if they do release the Kraken before I pay to play again.I haven't used the Roo site in a while :( Anyways I guess with the economy sucking like it does I just can't justify paying for it right now.Hope to see you all soon:cool1:

Hi ya'll, I haven't played at all since they did away with the linked accounts. Not that I was playing much before then, as I was maxed out on everything. I really don't anticipate starting up again anytime soon. I've been spending some time in SmallWorlds lately, in light of the Elf Island fiasco. Thankfully, Matty flexes mightily wherever he might be. Hope ya'll are doing well.

Iris

I had a free month recently and got back on to play and yes, you can level up even more now. I won't get a new subscription until they open a new story line!!

Matty - I miss you :(

What is the Elf Island fiasco you speak of? Have I missed something?

Matty D
10-01-2009, 03:24 PM
Miss you too, Cruisey. A complete fiasco, you can get the gist of it here (http://www.elfislandfansite.com/). Not to mention that they let go of a certain staff member, who is very dear to all of us. It was definitely the straw that broke the camel's back for me. So a good number of familiar DISers have been hanging out in SmallWorlds lately.

Greetings KrazyPete, Jeaniegirl, MattyD and Iris,..
Since I had not seen any of the recent facts of the game offered as of yet to your questions...
if you'll allow me,.. I’ll gladly give you all a update.

The advances have been a long time coming and certainly worth the wait.

It appears the Kraken will not be landing in our ocean very soon, perhaps by the first of the coming 2010 year, but instead, it appears attention and focus has been redirected to new advances in the game. Advances that will allow multi interaction on several levels and advanced story lines that are a few instead of one. (referring to the Kraken)

The new game advances have landed on the Test Servers and has shown the Disney has the capability to pioneer in MMO's.
The have delivered (with some wrinkles to iron out) the first 3D (which is optional) MMO in Pirates Online.
The build up has been as a "Coming War" in the Caribbean.
The day it landed (on Test Servers) was truly amazing...

The Event initiates as a declaration that looks like this...
http://disneypotco.com/images/jollyattack.jpg
The event does a countdown also at 10 minutes and then 5 and then 1 minute...
then,...the Ship appeared like the flying Dutchman off the harbor at Port Royal.
A massive Phantom ship and the words of Jolly Roger himself bellowing out like the voice of God.
The event begins with several wave attacks of undead in an attempt to destroy the barricades that block the path to destroy the Governors Mansion. It has options of victory or defeat. Pirates must work together and utilize the newly implemented revive system that is all too necessary to bring your fellow Pirate back to life on the spot in attempts to overcome Jolly's minions of evil doers. At the end,.. jolly roger himself lands to complete what his army could not finish if they are defeated… and he is one powerful foe,.. We had a 20 or more on him and he still managed to overtake us…. On another occasion, we took him down… one bad dude for sure!
There are so many details of this new feature... it will not be a holiday event but a interactive part of the game.

Sensational, unprecedented and genius is all I can say about the ability to, at your choice, play the game in 3D mode. It was simply fantastic.

As also stated,.. the Notoriety cap is raised to 50 along with weapons skills to 30.

GM Captain Walter of the Online Staff "Marceline Guild" was overheard saying this.....
"the War is coming and will be fierce, (as he has openly said before) and the Caribbean ,
I fear will be a vey haunting place this coming Month of October!"

There is so much that has landed and so much more coming.
This bring life to the game like I have never experienced.

Very cool stuff... so glad it is here... my Family and I are having a blast playing...
Yes, I too have incurred the cost of paying for 3 accounts,.. but it is a whole months worth of family
enjoyment and I could easily burn that up at one outing to the movie theatre. (and then some)

Fun stuff... a magical adventure....

Hi pirate clan. I know I went missing in action but have had a miserable time of it this past year health wise. Not out of the woods but am finally following advice and trying a new doctor. I'm afraid I bailed pirates and started playing Wizard 101 and World of Warcraft (always wondered where my beloved computer RPGs went - online, that's where).

Hope things are well with all of you. I miss our scurvy guild too.

How was your trip to WDW? Our week (right after yours) was incredibly HOT and DH did not really like the heat. We did a LOT of water park days since our tickets had 5 days worth included.

Dining was pretty cool but a heck of a lot of food:thumbsup2

When is your next trip? I am already thinking early winter in 2010 although I know we have to go back in August to take Stephanie down for career start. Looks like 2010 might have several WDW trips:)

Hiya!! :hug:

We had a FANTASTIC time! So wish we could have met up at least for a day. My mom and sister were there also. Yes, it was HOT, but remember... I love the heat so I was good. We spent most afternoons back at the pool anyways.

Dining... YUM! Absolutely LOVE that dining plan, especially when free. I ate and ate and ate. Only gained 4 lbs. though. I was shocked. Thought I had put much more on.

Early winter sounds perfect for another trip. Do you know where you're staying?

Life has thrown a signficant curveball at me. I doubt I'll be back to WDW for a loooooooooooooong time :sad: Just holding onto hope that *someday* I'll be back! :wizard:

Sorry to see it go but all good things..............

I have been back playing since the most recent updates and changes, but since none of the Roos were ever on, I have changed guilds to Babes of the Sea! (Jam is also in it so at least she is on).

I must say with the changes it has been pretty fun. I am loving the invasions - was just in one and got knocked down several times but we still won! There are some navy fleet invasions which I haven't had a chance to be in yet, but at least I know they are there. While there is still no new story line, the updates have made it fun enough to get back in.

No they removed the ability to link accounts and have two people logged in from seperate computers from the same account.

We ended up moving my pirate over to my account since it was originally on my daughter's account so that we could log on together.

I am currently unlimited right now but most likely go back to basic in a few more weeks. I have enjoyed the recent updates quite a bit and I am oddly addicted to the cannon defense game. I guess I like the shooting as it reminds me of the pirate game in vmk.
