  • July 24, 2008 - Privateering Now Live!

    Wanted: Able Deckhands and Pirates!

    After weeks of tavern gossip, we can now confirm the rumors as true - Privateering has come to the Caribbean!

    The feuding Pirate "Lords" Garcia de Avaricia and Pierre le Porc are now actively recruiting Pirates from all over the Caribbean to join their ranks and take up Privateering under the Pirate "Lords" respective flag.

    Interested Pirates should sail (or teleport) to either Garcia's Isla De La Avaricia or Pierre's Ile D'Etable De Porc to get their Privateer's license. Both Avaricia (the Spanish "Lord") and le Porc (the French "Lord") are providing new recruits with basic provisions and licenses to Privateer.

    Pirates that enlist have a chance to make a reputation for themselves (not to mention, a few gold coins) while engaging in villainy and destruction! Enlist now and establish your legacy as a Spanish or French Privateer!

      • Launch your ship from the islands of Isla De La Avaricia (Spanish) or Ile D'Etable De Porc (French), and you will automatically be put into Privateering mode
      • New Privateering loading hint screens have been added
      • Added Privateering chat. Now you can communicate with other members of your team without an opposing team knowing about it. (This type of chat will appear in a gold color in your chat window.)
      • While in Privateering mode, flagships will sink immediately when you disable them

    • Updated the Basic Access player popup
    • The radar now remembers your zoom level when boarding and leaving a ship
    • Added NPCs with glowing question marks above their heads. These "helper NPCs" will give advice in the same manner as Quest dialog. You can find a couple of these NPCs on the Privateering islands
    • The ship repair panel will update correctly when repairing your ship

    • Removed the teleport totem icon from the map for Kingshead island
    • The Ray-Of-Light will guide you better to your Quest objectives

    • Fixed a bug that was preventing clothing/jewelry/tattoo rewards from being dropped by enemies if your inventory was already full of these items
    • Fixed a bug that allowed players to appear undead outside of PVP
    • Fixed a bug that allowed the French/Spanish NPCs to respawn on their ship if it was taking too long to defeat all NPCs
    • Fixed a bug with the voodoo doll that would divide healing power among all attuned targets(including enemy NPCs) instead of only dividing it among attuned targets that are players
    • Fixed a bug that would not allow you to run after you died while taking aim with the pistol

          I Think its really hard! But it is fun. And i like the whole new armor thing for your ships. It makes killing NPC ships a whole lot easier.

              Until the Armour runs out... Then the amount of damage they do to you is significantly more...
