An addict went to sea, sea, sea, to see what she could bomb, bomb, bomb. Yes fellow seafarers it’s that time again. A new phase = a new battle as Blackbeard has now called his Abominable Aar-mada into action and all we’ve got to defend ourselves is a Fuddled Frigate.
But fear not the battle modus operandi is really the same as in previous phases and as long as you can get those champagne corks popping defeating the enemy is easy.
Pt. 1 of the main Questline Lifestyes of the Rich and Seamus will prompt you to repair the Fuddled Frigate. This has a 10 sec repair and once repaired your Frigatewill be ready to go into battle against Blackbeard’s Abominable Aar-Mada. Well it will be once you collect 3 champage, and yes unfortunately it’s another rare drop.
Also be aware all your fleet, the Gunboat, Schooner, Brig and Frigate can collect flags for the leaderboard.
Pt. 2 of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous will prompt you to man your cannons and attack Blackbeard’s Abominable Aar-mada. Pressing GO will take you to the Attack Your Enemies screen. You can see from this only Long John Peter and Davy Jones can attack.
Once you select your character/s you will see the damage they can do, the cost of the attack, in these battles it is 3 bottles of champagne, (you can collect these from Meg Pop Champagne OR Brian Host Cocktail Hour OR Dr Hartman Prescribe Bubbly OR Blackbeard Chug Champagne OR Get from Treasure Cay Casino 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 2 new rewards, Saffron for making purchases in the House of Booty, Grapefruits for trading for gunpowder at the The Black Market and Flags to collect for the leaderboard. In the example above the attack takes 4 hrs and the reward is 2 Saffron, 41 Flags and 6 Grapefruits. Once an attack is underway you will see your Frigate firing on Blackbeard’s Aar-mada, 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 champagne you can immediately start another attack.
You will also see an option to upgrade your Frigate. To do this you will need Cursed Treasure, Lemons, Limes Oranges and Grapefruits 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 Abominable Aar-Mada 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.
So that’s our guide to attacking, thank you for sailing with us, we hope to sail with you again soon.
