Welcome to the Game Update Notes section! Every time we update the online Pirate game, Pirate101, we like to let our players know what changes have been made and what's new with the game. Update Notes explain what's been changed and improved.
Upon reaching level 70, and promoting Old Scratch to an Undead Houngan, there’s an exciting new quest available that takes you to the World of Dreams! Old Scratch will summon you to a tavern to begin your journey.
Speaking of Old Scratch, you will notice that the introduction to the World of Dreams also comes with an upgrade for this spooky companion... if you’re lucky enough to make it through the battle successfully.
There are four old bosses who have been powered up to now be skeleton key bosses!
Duck of Death
These are meant for our most powerful Pirates, so bring your best crew and your exceptional fighting skills to the battle!
Protect Your Booty!
Next up on the most wanted list is a very nifty and quite useful feature - Item Locking! You’ll notice a new icon in your inventory that looks like a doubloon, this will toggle item locking on and off.
You can transfer a locked item between inventory, bank, attic, and shared bank freely.
If you want to sell or delete an item, you will need to unlock it first.
Quest Finder, Quest Finder, Find me a Quest...
For quality of life updates, this has been our #1 request for quite a while, and we’re excited to introduce Quest Finder with this update!
Having trouble finding what quest you need to do next? Looking for something new to do? Now you can simply press a button and find a nearby quest!
When you press the Quest Finder Button in your Journal (it's on the last page of your quests) The Quest Helper arrow will now point to the nearest available quest. It will start with the current zone you are in, and then expand to the current world you are in. If it doesn't find any quests in that world, you will need to move to another world and press Quest Finder again.
When you use Quest Finder, a window will appear telling you where to go and who to talk to, and the Quest Helper arrow will now point to that location.
More Space Please!
We know that after years of adventuring through the skyway, you have accumulated a lot of loot. We’ve heard your requests for more space in your inventory, bank, and friends lists. To that end, we’ve added some ways to expand these precious storage systems!
We’re granting everyone (yes, ALL Pirates) 20 more bank spaces for free!
In the Crown Shop, we’ve added some various elixirs that can expand things even more:
The Expand Backpack Elixir will add 40 slots of backpack space (max 2 per Pirate)
The Expand Bank Elixir will add 40 slots of bank space (max 2 per Pirate)
The Expand Friends List Elixir will add 25 more friends list spaces (max 2 per Pirate)
It’s good to be a member! We will be introducing limited time membership benefits as thanks for being a member of Pirate101. These will turn on occasionally for special events. Please stay tuned to our social media for announcements on when they’ll be available on the Test Realm, but here’s what you can expect to see:

Pets and Mounts
More pet names! On a previous Falmea Friday, we asked for suggestions and implemented some of our favorites. We’re eager to see which names you choose for your pets!
By popular demand, we’ve allowed the Tiger Claws to be visible on MOST mounts (though we will not let our faithful steeds be impaled by these claws, so not ALL of them).
