|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group mission begins with Shental Darkmind (click for map image), who is located near -225, -100 (middle of the zone). There are no pre-requisites for requesting this task.
Note: Unlike most group missions, this task has only a two-hour timer.
You say, 'Hail, Shental Darkmind'
Shental Darkmind says 'Ahoy there, as they say here, though I suppose I'll never get used to saying it. I'm usually pretty good with colloquialisms, but apparently not these. I guess it's because I'm not a big fan of the sea, even though I'm making a fair amount of money from it at this time because of the [Freetide Cartel]. I like to spend that money in useful ways, and if you're available I could use your [help with a few things]. Or, if you have a few allies you can call on, I have something a bit more, um, interesting for you to [help with].'
You say, 'What can we help with?'
Shental Darkmind says 'There is a person, I shall not name this person, that is attempting to use our trade routes in the Buried Sea. As usual, I mentioned this person's travel plans to the locals. But I don't expect them to be able to handle this on their own. I want a good job done, and for that I'm looking to hire you, assuming a little dirty work isn't beneath you.'
You have been assigned the task 'Pirating Ways'.
Shental has asked that you hook up with some pirates and help them deal with a minor rival merchant. He wants you to make certain you find all of the booty to be certain this rival loses everything in the attack.
Speak with Silverlip Slim 0/1 (Barren Coast)
Silverlip Slim (click for map image) is found in the same zone (non-instanced Barren Coast) under the northernmost dock along its coast.
You say, 'Hail, Silverlip Slim'
Silverlip Slim says 'Arr! So that landlubber Shental sent you as his peg-legs, so to speak. So you'll do his dirty work and he'll pay you a pittance. That works for me. But before you get on one of my ships, you'll need a [token] that says you belong. Without one, you'll be split and tossed overboard.'
You say, 'What token?'
Silverlip Slim says 'Here it is. Don't lose it, mate.'
You receive "Blacksail Doubloon". (Everyone should obtain one.)
Purchase tickets to The Open Sea and catch the boat 0/1 (Barren Coast)
Dockmaster Jack says 'Ye look like ye've been out ta sea on a mission for a bit, and perhaps yer head'n back out? If'n ye are, ye will need to get a ticket from me before yer able to board the Ravaging Death!'
Buy a "Seafarer's Ticket: The Open Sea" from any of the Dockmasters along the coastline and keep it in your inventory. When the ship docks, step onto it and wait for it to sail out to the Buried Sea. Upon zoning, you'll find yourself on board a pirate ship full of non-KOS pirates. This ship has attacked a merchant ship, and your kill targets will be the Freetide mobs found on it.
Loot 5 Sack of Booty 0/5 (The Open Sea)
Kill 15 merchant sailors 0/15 (The Open Sea)
All mobs seem to count towards the 15 kills, although killing non-KOS mobs gives red text and a warning from Captain Black Bill to not kill his men. Captain Horatio Ongel is killable (no special loot) while First Mate Fortuna Gelukk is not. There were exactly 15 KOS mobs including the captain on the second boat.
There are also five chests spread around the ship, each containing 1 'booty', one on each level of the ship.
a freetide deckhand has been slain by _____!
a freetide deckhand's corpse says 'How could a Landlubber get me?'
Deliver 5 Sack of Booty to Captain Black Bill 0/5 (The Open Sea)
Captain Black Bill says 'Yar!'
Speak to First Mate Conroy 0/1 (The Open Sea)
You say, 'Hail, First Mate Conroy'
First Mate Conroy says 'Har! If'n ya want ta leave, then I'll take you someplace. Won't be me that shoves ya off the plank when we get there!'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Barren Coast.
Speak to Shental Darkmind 0/1 (Barren Coast)
You say, 'Hail, Shental Darkmind'
Shental Darkmind says 'Not bad, not bad at all. The fool is already crying about his losses.'
The merchant ship was picked clean. Shental appeared pleased with your recounting of the bloody tale.
- Doubloons (varies)
- Faction with Blacksail Smugglers (+10)
