About Wine

Wine is a special seasonal item color that will not be available for general sale from Tailors or other in-game shoppes. It is available in this promotion as a familiar color, as the color of all the clothing prizes, as the primary and secondary color of the furniture prizes, as the color of the ship prize, as the color of the trinket prizes and as a special chroma item.

About Chromas

Chromas are items that are carried in the Miscellaneous section of your Booty panel. They can be used to permanently change the primary or secondary color of any existing piece of clothing, except the Savvy Hat and any clothing item that lacks color options.

Promotion Details

  • Purchase must be made between 3 PM PDT November 19th and 3 PM PDT November 29th to be eligible.
  • Each purchase of $9.95 or greater is eligible. Smaller purchases cannot be combined to meet this limit.
  • Making a single purchase of $19.50 or greater will make you eligible for an additional Harvest Mystery Gift, for a total of two gifts for that purchase.

Collecting Your Mystery Gift

Your bonus item can be collected in-game by logging in and viewing the "Ahoy" panel on the pirate with which you would like to receive the gift.

Mystery Gift Distribution and Value

All eligible purchases will receive a bonus item, but the distribution is arbitrary regardless of the amount of the transaction or the frequency with which purchases are made. The probability of receiving a specific item is the same for your first or tenth purchase.

  • 0.3% - Wine/Wine Parrot Familiar
  • 0.5% - Tan Octopus
  • 1.2% - Wine-Painted Sloop*
  • 2% - Wine Cat
  • 6% - Wine Furniture: One of Striped Chair, Sofa, Globe Table or Harpsichord

  • 52% - Wine Clothing

Clothing rewards do NOT include rags and are of Good quality or better.

Three Rings offers no substitutions for these items. These items are offered as a bonus to doubloon and subscription purchases and have no cash or redemption value with Three Rings and cannot be returned for a discount.

If you are unable to retrieve your mystery bonus gift, contact us through the Support Form. We should be able to validate your purchase and assist with any problems.

* The Wine-Painted Sloop will be bestowed as a "sealed deed" item which can be used from your pirate's inventory to cause the prize ship's deed to appear. The prize ship will be docked at your home island.
