An appearance altering potion is a tradeable item produced at an apothecary. By clicking on the item—found under Potions inside the Booty tab—and selecting "Drink," the player can alter their appearance. If the look selected is what the pirate already looks like, the potion is not used even if the "Alter!" button is pressed. Facial hair altering potions are usable only by male pirates. Potions that heal a specific injury may only be used by pirates with that injury.

Each potion has one use (swig) before it is fully consumed. Appearance altering potions never decay. Injury healing potions are made with common herbs and are generally quite cheap. The other appearance altering potions tend to be extremely expensive—an apothecary cannot produce any of them without multiple units of rare or semi-rare (and thus expensive) herbs.

Note: Wigs, diving helmets and active curses (from use of amulets or in-game events) can prevent the potion from working correctly. Pirates who are having issues should check to see if they are wearing one before filing a bug report or petitioning an Ocean Master. Curses from amulets are reset by logging out, event-based curses can be disabled by turning off the option for special event effects.

Cure-all elixir

During the 2005 Halloween events cure-all elixirs were available to pirates who did not wish to participate in the zombie events. They were obtained by requesting one in a petition from an Ocean Master. Cure-all elixirs also removed all injuries, however, and needed to be taken every time a pirate logged on. Cure-all elixirs may also be obtained as rare prizes in events.

  • Note: This potion was originally colored white but was changed to orange during release 2008-02-05.

  • Pink pomade, available in August, turns hair pink.
  • Violet volumizer, available in October, turns hair purple.
