Hi Diddle Dee Dee, it’s another battle for me. Oh and for you too, you’re not getting to cower in your crew quarters whilst I take on Blackbeard’s Dastardly Division on my own. So let’s fire up our Boozy Brigs with bourbon and set sail.
Now as experienced seafarers we should all know the Blackbeard battle drill by now but for anyone who’s been hiding out during the previous weeks battles here’s what you need to know.
Pt. 1 of the main Questline Treasure Punting will prompt you to repair the Boozy Brig. This has a 10 sec repair and once repaired your Brig will be ready to go into battle against Blackbeard’s Dastardly Division. Well it will be once you collect 6 bourbon, and just so you’re aware we are struggling with these drops as well, and Bunny is feeding this back to TinyCo.
Also be aware all your fleet, the Gunboat, Schooner and Brig can collect flags for the leaderboard.
Pt. 2 of Treasure Punting will prompt you to man your cannons and attack Blackbeard’s Dastardly Division. Pressing GO will take you to the Attack Your Enemies screen. You can see from this only Peter Pan and The Captain can attack, but as The Captain is premium many of you may only be using Peter Pan in these battles.
Once you select your character/s you will see the damage they can do, the cost of the attack, in these battles it is 6 bottles of bourbon, (you can collect these from Salty Show Off Liquor Collection OR Mort Raid Liquor Aisle OR Bonnie Get Free Drinks OR Joe Confiscate Moonshine OR Making Davy Jones Sword Fight OR Get from Seal Encounter Pool in the House of Booty), and the reward you will receive once victory is yours.
Now rewards is where you will see a change as we’ve 3 new rewards, Ginger for making purchases in the House of Booty, Oranges for trading for gunpowder at the The Black Market and Flags to collect for the leaderboard. In the example above the attack takes 2 hrs and the reward is 2 Ginger, 31 Flags and 6 Oranges. Once an attack is underway you will see your Brig firing on Blackbeard’s division, if you click on it you will see the time remaining and confirmation of the reward you will receive.
Once the attack is complete you will see the following on your screen, tap the tick and you will be able to collect your reward.
As soon as a battle is over as long as you have enough bourbon you can immediately start another attack.
You will also see an option to upgrade your Brig. To do this you will need Cursed Treasure, Lemons, Limes and Oranges to purchase Gunpowder Kegs from The Black Market. (For those wondering The Black Market is the building directly to the left of the House of Booty).
By upgrading you can destroy more ships in Blackbeard’s Dastardly Division with each attack and obviously gain more rewards. It’s going to take you time to collect what you need for these upgrades, and I will give you more details about this is another post.
The only way to increase your Brig crew is to purchase the premium character, The Captain, (270 clams). But that decision is yours, and yours alone.
So that’s our guide to attacking, thank you for sailing with us, we hope to sail with you again soon.
