  • Talk to Bill Teach.

Pirate plunder[edit | edit source]

  • Swing back over to the enemy ship.
  • Climb down their ladder.
  • Gather 10 plunder by:
    • Plunder their chest,
    • Ransack their barrel,
    • Loot their crate,
    • Hop worlds to collect more plunder quickly.
  • Swing across with the plunder.
  • Deposit the plunder in the chest on the lower deck.
  • Talk to Bill Teach.

Cannon[edit | edit source]

  • Search the gun locker and take a cannon barrel.
  • Repair the broken cannon on the top deck.
  • Talk to Bill Teach.
  • Search the gun locker, take a ramrod, a few fuses, and some cannon canisters.
  • Take some powder from the barrel next to the cannon.
    • Use gunpowder on the cannon.
    • Then the ramrod.
    • Then the canister.
    • Then a fuse.
    • Fire the cannon! (Make sure pirates line up with your cannon before firing)
      • Note: If you have your "NPC 'Attack' option" set to "Hidden" you will not be able to damage the pirates.
    • Use the ramrod on the cannon again to clean it.
  • Repeat until 3 pirates die (OR until you run out of cannon canisters in your inventory, and when you try to take more it will say "you do not need a canister round right now" move on to the next step: Talk to Bill Teach).
    • Note: it may be faster to intentionally run out of canisters.
  • Talk to Bill Teach.
  • Search the gun locker, take several cannon balls, fuses, and cannon barrels. Take gunpowder from the barrel next to the cannon.
  • Fire the cannon with cannonballs until you put three holes in the enemy's ship. This is done with the same sequence above except instead of a canister, a cannonball is used instead - you will likely have to fire it more than three times and possibly repair it multiple times.
    • The sequence goes:
      • Right-click Empty-Out Cannon
      • Ramrod to clean
      • Add powder
      • Ramrod the powder down
      • Cannon ball
      • Fuse
      • Fire
  • Congratulations, quest complete!
    • Talk to Bill Teach in the pub afterwards to get your share of the loot, 10,000 coins.
