|“||So will you not give up this quest, then?||”|
In Pirates of the Caribbean Online you have six types of quests:
- Story Quests
- Fortune Quests
- Teleportation Quests
- Treasure Unlock Quests
- Weapon Unlock Quests
- Weapon Upgrade Quests
Fortune Quests generally have gold and treasure as rewards, and are given usually by townspersons and occasionally by story characters. Most of them require some fighting and sinking to do.
Teleportation Quests unlock Teleportation Totems that help pirates teleport to settled or main islands.
Treasure Unlock Quests unlock different Treasure Collections, which you can collect items for by looting.
Weapon Unlock Quests unlock a new type of weapon that pirates are able to use. Pirates are given Swords and guns without an unlock quest, however all the others are only unlocked with a quest.
Weapon Upgrade Quests are special quests that reward pirates with a powerful weapon. These quests unlock when a pirate gets to level 15 or 20 in any skill except Grenade, Potions, and Fishing.
- Important Note: READ the journal entry CAREFULLY! There may be specific elements to a quest; (ex: "Kill Alligators in the Wildwoods") means you can't get credit for gators killed elsewhere, or ("Sink a Navy Galleon") means only that type of ship counts.
The usual pirate will likely have at least several quests running at the same time. To help locate a specific goal, the pirate can go to their journal and select a quest goal by clicking on it. This makes it to where you are only on 1 quest objective.
New quests will display as a NEW sign, incomplete quests will display the portion achieved and finished quests will display as COMPLETED. Most often after completing a quest, the pirate will have to return to the character that offered it to receive their reward and credit for finishing it.
Also, some quests can be discontinued from the journal by canceling them. Story quests, teleportation access quests, weapon upgrade/unlock, and treasure unlock quests may NOT be canceled.
Remember to always do the teleport quests first, so they may help you on other quests. It's a lot easier to teleport island to island instead of sail.
Ray of Light
When the pirate is near a tracked quest goal (a location, character or enemy), a ray of light will shine down from the sky onto it.
If there are 2 or more enemies in sight, the light will fall on the closest one but a star will appear on the enemies in the mini map. This can help a pirate. There used to be a pointer to tell you where to go but they removed it from game.
A pirate's compass also aids in finding quest goals by pointing an arrow in the direction of the goal or placing a sunburst over an enemy or the item on the compass screen. This makes finding the next part of your quest a lot easier. It helps the people who don't have the game memorized.
As well as the Compass, the map also gives you a broader chance of finding where you want to go.
- By taking multiple quests at a time, it's more likely that you may be required to kill the same enemy or visit the same people - allowing you to accomplish them at the same time. (Ex. sinking a Navy Greyhound for Bartholomew Watkins may also get you needed ship parts for Darby Drydock, etc.)
- If a quest requires you to travel to a remote location, ask friends or guildmates if they are already at those places and if you can teleport to them. If not, use a shipwright to get a ship if you don't have the teleport totems. If a quest requires you to go to one of the main islands, (Port Royal, Tortuga, Cuba, Padres del Fuego) then you have a choice of paying a dockworker a small fee to get to the location instantly.
- Crewing up always makes a quest goal easier to accomplish, and your mates might have to perform the same task as well, and gets you more plunder!
- Some quests require defeating multiple enemies. Find out where they are first. You may find that all of those enemies can be found in a single spot, as opposed to running from place to place.
