Ahoy, and welcome to the What’s New page! This is your place to go to learn about all the exciting original content in The Legend of Pirates Online! While our main goal is to get the game back into working order, we have added a few pieces of brand new content to the game! This page spotlights a few of them - check it out!
Released in March 2018, Forsaken Shallows is a new cave that was added on Isla Tormenta. Here, pirates can find many more challenging enemies to fight, including the brand new Spout as well as several high leveled bosses, each dropping their own unique weapons. In the same update, a brand new boss, Cicatriz, made her appearance in El Patron’s Mine. Nineteen cursed weapons arrived in the Caribbean around this time as well - make sure to gather a strong crew and find them all!
Hollowed Woods is a jungle that can be found on Port Royal by traversing through King’s Run. What used to be a quaint mining town is now overrun by Jolly Roger’s minions. Every Halloween, the entrance of this mysterious jungle reopens and pirates are tasked with defeating The Watcher and ridding the jungle of her evil presence. Pirates can also find several shops inside the Hollowed Woods, each offering their own unique products to be bought. These items are only available while the jungle is open, be sure to get them next Halloween!
Quality of Life
As the game has progressed, the team has made several changes to improve your experience in the Caribbean. One of our first features was the introduction of the second inventory page, allowing pirates to carry more weapons and clothes. Guilds have also become more complex with the creation of a Co-Guildmaster rank, which allows the Guildmaster to delegate several of their duties. Quest Rewards vendors also have made their way to the Caribbean. If you have trashed a quest item in the past, you can now repurchase it from one of these vendors. Ship captains can now kick unruly pirates off their ships. This feature was once only available to privateers but now is available for all captains to use. These are just some of the changes, many more can be found on our release notes!
Just in time for summer 2018, all new bright colors became lootable, allowing players’ inventories to be even more colorful! The new colors are: Bright Pink, Electric Blue, Bright Purple and Gold.
Many clothing items that were once only available to male pirates such as the Dark Ostrich hat have become available for female pirates to loot. Colorable bonnets and long skirts have also been introduced and are lootable. Colorable long coats, puffy shirts and shorts can be looted for the male pirates.
Many new legendaries have been appearing across the Caribbean, waiting to be found! The Cursed Blade of Yore, Jack Sparrow’s Blade, The Krakenslayer, The Lost Blade of Leviathan, Calypso’s Radiance and Mercer’s Pistol are a few of the fifteen new legendary weapons now in the Caribbean… can you loot them all?
New sleeve tattoos can now be bought from Nina Perpetua in the Las Pulgas tattoo shop on Padres del Fuego. Several new intimidating face tattoos can be found from the SvS and PvP tattoo vendors. These are only available for the savviest privateers and PvPers.
To spice up the holidays, the team has made a concerted effort to make each holiday unique. The St. Patrick’s Day Quest now accompanies the green water, complete the quest and you will be rewarded with a 2x reputation bonus and an all new sea charm!
The Yuletide Manor opens just in time for Christmas every year. Pirates can visit the Frost family and buy some very exclusive items in exchange for moonstones, which can be be found in loot during the holiday. Moonstones come in three different varieties, small, large and enchanted. Make sure you obtain large amounts of each and buy as many of the items as your inventory can handle!
Every Valentine’s Day, The Pirate Valentine quest reappears! But unlike before, the reward is quite a blast: The Valentine’s Heart Grenade. Visit Erin Amorous to embark on this lovely adventure and help Sid Tackem!
On the Horizon: Pypperoni
One of the next features to keep an eye out for is TLOPO’s own Python compiler known as Pypperoni. Pypperoni is a 64-bit overhaul of our behind-the-scenes functions, allowing for crisper graphics, improved frame rates and a much smoother gameplay experience. Check out Pypperoni's GitHub repository to learn more.
On the Horizon: New Story Quest
As we have mentioned in past Developer Insiders, our team is actively working on the next expansion, the next Story Chapter which will serve as a follow up to the Liberation of The Black Pearl. This next story quest will include several brand new locations, new weapons, enemies, and gameplay features! We will continue to provide more information on this as it becomes available.
On the Horizon: Isla Escondida
Isla Escondida was the first major island created from scratch by the TLOPO team. We announced it way back in 2016, but have pushed its release further back in order to prepare. We want to make sure Isla Escondida is the best it can be, with new enemies, a questline, and more! Check out this article to learn more.
