Pirate101 Key Features
Customize Your Ship – Every good pirate captain needs a fast pirate ship; players here are free to customize their vessel. Will the silhouette of your sails on the horizon cause other captains to run and hide?
Search For Treasure – Whether through boss battles or claimed from captured enemy vessels, Pirate101 is full of custom goodies! From points earned in minigames to swords and outfits claimed from bosses, it’s all about the loot!
Train Your Crew – A good pirate captain needs two things; a fast ship, and a tough crew. Recruit and train your crew and make your ship into a lean, mean, treasure-seeking machine!
Compete In PvP – Enter ranked or unranked matches against other players and claim fortune and glory! Are your ship and crew good enough to overcome the challenge?
