Navigation Mission

Earlier today somone asked me how to get the mission to become an officer since we needed a higher rank in that. I checked here but it said you needed to suscribe (It was on cobalt) and she was a pirate. Im not sure if that is the right information. --Swordblade

Skellie mission

I'm pretty sure the skellie mission can come up without a subscription/parlor badge, but only on the days SF is free. I don't have a parlor badge on either doubloon ocean, but I still get the missions on the SF free days. --Thunderbird 11:45, 10 November 2005 (PST)

I believe you're correct. Go ahead and make the change. --Barrister 11:47, 10 November 2005 (PST)
Gah. Oops. Again. I blame the flu. --Eurydice 12:07, 10 November 2005 (PST)

Bilging, etc. with the navy

These missions aren't always available. There has to be an island with a navy in that archipelago. There may be other requirements, but I haven't tested it yet. --Barrister 17:15, 5 December 2005 (PST)

That bit was never in the article, I just removed the bit saying that less the broad in one of the duty puzzle categories was required. From what I can tell, the missions require a minimum level of experience to show up. I'd guess Neophyte, but it could be higher and be bypassed by doing the Learn To * missions. --Thunderbird 17:32, 5 December 2005 (PST)

Drinking Challenge

Is it me, or has this one disappeared from the game? --Thunderbird 17:48, 21 March 2006 (PST)

Palace/Fort missions

I've noticed the "Use bludgeons" option has no effect on rumble challenges (it's enabled regardless of whether you check the box). Is the same true of the drinking challenge? (I don't have a mug) --Thunderbird 17:52, 5 April 2006 (PDT)

About the revert

I reverted the last change primarily because it's impossible to have any tournament with 47 rounds. Assuming the number of participants minimum for x rounds is 2^(x-1)+1, you'd need 70368744177665 participants for a tournament to go that long. Little ridiculous. I also do not see drinking tournament or rumble tournament missions right now from Midnight, but this might be because those types aren't up right now. --Thunderbird 20:32, 30 April 2006 (PDT)

I'm guessing it was probably a semi-vandalism edit, if that's not too presumtuous. While we're on the subject, though, are there missions to "win the first round of a rumble tournament"? --Emufarmers 20:38, 30 April 2006 (PDT)
Wouldn't be surprised if there is, except that the tournament missions read "Play in *type* tournament" so I've edited the two known ones to comply. Also, I think they may require a broadcast-worthy tournament of that type to be put up in order to get. --Thunderbird 20:56, 30 April 2006 (PDT)

SF, Drinking, and Rumble Missions

Do we think a small note just above this section stating that these missions do not contribute to Sword Fight, Drinking, or Rumble experience or rank would be prudent? --Muffynz 20:54, 25 May 2006 (PDT)

Definitely. :) Make sure that it says that playing against the trainer bots doesn't boost your rank/standing, without implying that it's the case with all NPPs. --Emufarmers 21:04, 25 May 2006 (PDT)
Actually, none of them state rated/experienced or not. I'll add what I know and someone else can fill in the blank spots.--Muffynz 21:05, 25 May 2006 (PDT)

On the Pollywog

I know it says this in the navy article, but should we indicate that the Pollywog missions do not boost your navy rank? Actually, for that matter, should we indicate that the navy missions boost your navy rank, or should we leave that to the navy page? --Emufarmers 22:40, 25 May 2006 (PDT)

You could probably fairly easyily lump it in with the notes I added about whether it adds experience/rank and if it pays wages if you feel its necessary. Something like:
Note: All these missions contribute to player ranking and experience in the specific puzzle and pay a wage relative to the player's performance. They also increase the player's navy rank over time.
Something like that. --Muffynz 23:05, 25 May 2006 (PDT)

Free Portrait

You don't have to buy clothes to get this mission. I got it on an alt without buying anything. I might have recieved some through the Navy, but it appeared after I did the first "Play with swords" mission. I had done all the other "Learn to..." missions before that + "Get Loot for yer home!". -- Angara 6:00, 26 February 2007 (PST)

I do believe that the requirement is to have purchased clothing on that account, not necessarily the same pirate. I have tested this in a fair number of ways. -- Thefirstdude 06:10, 26 February 2007 (PST)

Crafting Missions

These transport your pirate to a shoppe or stall that has work to do. But, if more than one place has work, how does it decide? I clicked on the distilling mission several times and it kept taking me to the same place. After a while, it finally took me to a different place. Neither stall paid well. Is that the criteria? If so, it should be noted. Siriuskase 12:02, 25 February 2008 (PST)

I think that it is random or the exact code/pattern is unknown. From my personal expirence, I think it is random, but it takes ye to a stall that has orders. --Instantflash 12:09, 25 February 2008 (PST)

Mission Order

Is there any consensus on how the game chooses which five missions are displayed on the left-hand side of the noticeboard missions tab? If so, is it worth mentioning that on the page? --Belthazar451 23:45, 2 May 2008 (PDT)


Shouldn't the sea legs trophy be included in the trophies box, as you get it by completing 5 missions. --9wolf 12:43, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

I think it should =) Adrielle ♥ =) 12:56, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Learn to Pillage Mission - On the Pollywog

It says "Learn to Pillage! Only available until mission is completed and requires the completion of "Play with Swords!" and one of the "Learn to Bilge", "Learn to Carpent" or "Learn to Sail" missions. "

The "only available until mission is completed" kind of bugs me, since this is true for all the other Learn to... missions. After you've done it, you never see it anymore.

Since it is true for this whole section, why not take this line out of the Learn to Pillage section (and the one below it) and put it in the paragraph introducing the On the Pollywog missions?--Jelvik 11:24, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Hm, for my test pirate, the "Play with Swords!", "Learn to Carpent" and "Learn to Rig" missions are still available, even when I have taken them. I guess they go away after achieving a certain experience level in the puzzle. --Alfwyn 11:49, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
