Monquista King

Game Updates: August 2023

UI Scaling!

Ever wished the HUD was bigger? Are menu icons too small for your mega-ultra-360 monitor? Problem solved! With the Graphics option UI Scale, you can now increase the size of the HUD up to 200%! Pirates no longer need their spyglass to see their HUD. And there was much rejoicing.

A New Challenger Approaches


The Floating Dutchman has made a new home in Monquista.... inside a spiraling vortex of doom in the Tierra Primata Skyway! Gather your Obsidian Skeleton Keys, your crew, and a thirst for new gear. The new vortex can be found in the Tierra Primata Skyway. You'll need to have access to other Skeleton Key fights to engage this one, so be sure to have your mainline quests done! To enter the vortex you need to be level 70, And there was much rejoicing.

MooShu Fast Travel


Why does Cool Ranch get the first class travel option? MooShu has hired its very own stagecoach driver! Now getting around to Hamamitsu Garden, Subata, Khotan, Windy, Icy, and Crimson dock is easier than ever. Make sure to thank the driver as you exit the vehicle. Be prepared to take your bag of Crowns and.... leave it entirely alone. This stagecoach only costs gold! And there was much rejoicing.

First Time User Experience Changes


The first few quests up until unaliving Fin Dorsal have had some quality of life changes made to them! The team hopes this improves the experience for new and long-time Pirates. Make sure to let us know what you think in the Discord update feedback channel! This might not be the only changes we make, so be sure to make your suggestions about what would make the First Time User Experience better. And there was much rejoicing.

Misc Changes

  • Sinbad companion critical hits no longer break audio. Imagine hitting someone so hard it breaks the concept of sound....
  • The Mustang Staff in the Rangler Pack is now a ranged 5 Will based weapon that does magic damage.
  • Albano is no longer hiding from players -- Sinbad Chapter 1 and 2 should be obtainable for all Pirates now.
  • Players with a high CPU count should no longer experience a crash upon game load. Please let us know if this still occurs.
  • El Toro has had nothing changed. He is perfect. 🎺 🎵 🎵 🎺
