February 2011 Expedition Confirmation

Hoy, I'm just wondering if Merchant Hunts / Brigand King Hunts count as expeditions for the February Seal. Thanks Skyline777 09:12, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

It says these four count - "Imperial Outpost, Viking Defense, Buried Treasure Atoll, Lost Shipwreck", so I think the others do not. --Adrielle ♥ =) 11:11, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Official word from Cronus is "no". --Belthazar451 11:26, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

January 2013 clarification

The wording "Facing 10 [brig/barb] in sea battle" would suggest that neither winning nor even grappling is required, but that engaging and entering the sea battle board is enough. Can anyone confirm this? -Vortexae 22:29, 2 January 2013 (PST)

I can't confirm this one, but other similar triggers in the past have always meant "reach the fray". --Belthazar451 23:03, 2 January 2013 (PST)
I have indeed confirmed this through a friend, he done exactly 10 battles of each, and on at least 3 he disengaged and did not get the trophy. Avastme Talk 23:22, 2 January 2013 (PST)
Thanks! Last silly question, if anyone knows - does Battle Brigands with the Navy count? -Vortexae 23:31, 2 January 2013 (PST)
"The only stupid question is the one that is not asked" [1] (took me 20 minutes to find a link to that quote and best I could find xD, should keep them handy). And in reply, no. Had been tested by me and a few of my other friends and no luck, however this is common as it does not count towards ship trophies either (like the bronze sloop etc.).

February 2013 triggers

It would appear that Feb 2013 is like Feb 2011, in that BK hunts don't seem to count as expeditions for the purposes of earning the seal. If this is so, perhaps an OM could update the Official:Seals description? I just came off a pilly with a BK hunt and a Viking Raid, and the officer filed a petition when we didn't get our Seals.

Thank you for noticing! I've updated the valid expedition types now. --Clotho 20:50, 5 February 2013 (PST)

March 2013 Mars

Please, the month of March is named after the Roman god of war Mars. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Codefish8 (talkcontribs)

Aye, that's correct. And? The article contradicts this? --Belthazar451 23:42, 1 March 2013 (PST)

May 2013 triggers

I wanted to try testing whether Navy and Greeter Pilly battles counted. (Was pretty sure Navy didn't, but was unsure about Greeter.) So when I had finished my 19th battle via regular pilly (double-checking my count against my chat logs), I then went Battling Brigands With the Navy. As expected, one battle with the Navy did not trigger the Seal. So far, so good. Then I took out a ship Greeter Pillying. The first battle did not trigger the Seal -- but the second battle did.

Do Greeter Pilly battles count as half a battle for the purposes of the May Seal? -Vortexae 15:36, 8 May 2013 (PDT)

My Cerulean pirate just finished her 20th battle and hasn't got her Seal yet. However, of those 20, only 18 was she still in the game screen when melee ended. (One d/c, and one time I exited after being knocked out.) Perhaps it isn't enough to reach the fray - you have to actually be in the game screen to view the victory/defeat? That would explain why my Meridian pirate didn't get her Seal until her 21st battle, too. -Vortexae 19:34, 12 May 2013 (PDT)
But then got the seal on my 21st battle, not 22nd as expected. Maybe only the d/c was a problem. Or maybe the trigger is going off on 21 instead of 20? -Vortexae 19:47, 12 May 2013 (PDT)
Perhaps you will have better luck at the Trophy Speculation & Discussion thread on the forum. Chupchup 20:40, 12 May 2013 (PDT)
Thank you! I was not aware of that thread. Heading there now. (Last update on this from me here, I swear: another of my alts just got the Seal for her 20th battle, despite leaving fray in the middle of one of them. All 20 were Greeter Pilly battles.) -Vortexae 23:58, 13 May 2013 (PDT)

October 2013

The description of the seal requirements appears to be inaccurate. It says 1 skelly and 1 zombie fray, but it appears to actually require winning 2 of the 3 types of monster fray, as I've received the seal on multiple pirates for having done only zombies and werewolves. -Vortexae 15:11, 26 October 2013 (PDT)

Fall 2013 seal

I think this one is missing. I believe it should be around by now, since we have September, October and November seals. --Thunderbird 01:39, 18 November 2013 (PST)

Boom...done... -- Franklincain (t/c) 09:35, 18 November 2013 (PST)

February 2015

The seal requirements listed here only mention four of the seven currently known expedition types (buried treasure, shipwreck, vikings, imperial outposts), but I can confirm that Brigand King encounters also count. -Vortexae 12:33, 4 February 2015 (PST)

December 2015

I have attempted 5 different duty puzzles on a non-navy ship, even at least for two league points' distance. However, I didn't get the seal. Is this requirement bugged? The puzzles I tried were sailing, rigging, patching, carpentry, and bilging. Purpure 00:35, 11 December 2015 (PST)

I noticed that, for me, I had to do the puzzles longer than normal (basically a full league for each). This does effectively eliminate gunning from the puzzles (unless you KILL your score). However, since you said you did that, I don't know what the problem is. There were a lot of issues with it in-game at the beginning of the month, but most of them were solved by just doing the puzzle longer. Personally, I did the ones you listed, except I did navigation instead of carpentry. Jlh0605 (t/c) 02:00, 11 December 2015 (PST)
I think it doesn't work if you're swabbying. :( I did everything except gunning, but only the one that wasn't swabbying was the dnav. Bah. (Humbug?) I tried to bug it, but it didn't go through. --Budclare2 19:17, 11 December 2015 (PST)

I eventually got the seal after doing each puzzle I previously mentioned for about 5 leagues' worth of time (5 lps per puzzle) on different pillages. This took me 2 days. I recall I didn't manage to do sailing by league points as I was doing it in battle. Said time in battle must have counted. Purpure 19:50, 11 December 2015 (PST)

I finally got it after five or six additional leagues on patching. I did four or five leagues of patching the other day. This seal is wacky. --Budclare2 16:48, 14 December 2015 (PST)

Autumn 2016

Autumn too, please. :) --Budclare2 04:42, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Uploaded on Trophy page! :) Gunnerfreak on Cerulean 15:00, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
You...weren't supposed to be able to do that. Huh. Whatever they were using to stop non-admins from uploading seals must have gotten lost in the server move. But an admin will still have to protect the image and add it to the official page. --Budclare2 23:57, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
O.O|| Oops..... Guess so..... Gunnerfreak on Cerulean 00:32, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
Or maybe I'm going insane. I'd swear that I tried to upload a seal way back when and couldn't, but it was so long ago, I could be imagining it. O_o --Budclare2 02:38, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
