       A GUIDE TO SPENDING MONEY AND TIME

               As we know pirate101 has been lacking in the updates. so I've decided to make a guide on how to spend your time and money (the more you spend the more you will farm for) this will give you a reason to buy that membership, get back on and have something new to talk about with your friends! I will talk about things from collecting, housing, pulling together a fleet and more... some are obvious some are not but in the end it will give you a reason to get back on, times wasting so lets begin
1. collecting...
if you know me you will know I collect golden chickens (from Aquila) I have collected over 100! of them which has earned me a spot on one of the pirate101 newsletters. it doesn't have to be as odd as mine, it could be statues, weapons, gear sets, mounts, companions etc. the point is these things cost money and its a great past time but remember one thing...im the chicken guy.
                                                                     2. farming...
farming is beating a enemy over and over to gain a desired item. for example I spent nearly a year farming for the entire armada elite custom set, a year I would have spent in boredom. just by doing that you set a goal and wont get distracted from no content. this also gives you a reason to buy a membership which gives KI more money which reduces time until launch. It also gives you allot of gold in the long run,
                                                    3. decorating your house('s)...
I currently have 6 houses, all but one are done and decorated. I would check out Paige Moonshade's site on wizard101 called paige's page. She has allot of great decorating tips and a few housing contests every now and then. For example I will show you 2 houses I have done 1 is the commodores garrison after a "armada attack" and the next is the sharpshooters citadel which I have converted as a base for my chicken "Army" (you could say I'm the emperor of chickens and yes I know what being called a chicken means)

                      As you can see the armada left it in ruins (can you notice anything else?)


yes I know what your thinking, and I probably am somewhat crazy. but I combined 2 of my past times and molded them into something beautiful. try and do that with your things and it will make it twice as fun! Its also fun to put a story behind your house. its boring if its just there, add a story and it will be worth making and remaking. if you need to take parts away for example my armada attack house was way different. I needed some parts and made it a mini apocalypse. so it has 2 stories.
                                                             4. building a navy...
what would make your pirate stronger? something to show off? something that says your a very rich pirate? something that will strike fear into your enemies? how about all of the above. a navy with maxed out gear and high level ships shows you have all the doubloons in the spiral and if there ever is navy combat in pirate101 you will be ready. As a bonus they Sunbrand can add to your story for your house they can show your base is a fortress, or a simple trading colony. it may take awhile, but that's the point isn't it? I'm still working on mine currently. So even though I've been maxed for years I still have something to do. you can have a marlybone navy, aquilan armada, even your own fleet of pirate ships. here are some of my ships I have in my navy



I have six houses which means I still have a ton more to fill, and a ton left to decorate and perfect. the cycle of decorating never ends does it?
                                                              5. collecting mounts...
I myself am not a avid mount collector, but it is indeed noteworthy. if you don't want to buy a membership or already spent crowns on all the areas you can collect mounts. by doing this you can pick any mount you please whenever. going to a costume party? I would pick my armada outfit and my clockwork wings. mounts can add to your outfit or just show off that you've been around awhile...or you could do this with them...
                6.companions...   
I'm talking about the special ones, like goro (the ape) where you have to beat gortez 25 times or the sumo watermole which you have to beat ratbeards captor 3 times (do the dungeon 3 times killing him 3 times in one go doesn't work I'm afraid) even the bears and dinos from the packs. these things take awhile which eases the mind about no updates. try it out see how many you can collect
7. pets...
pet hatching is a great way to pass the time. you can hatch them to fight each other in the arena or hatch them to get that perfect pet to fight along side you. either way it takes up allot of time getting the snacks, getting the gear, training, and perfecting your pet. also collecting the hybrids and trying to find new ones, always fun and a race to see who finds the next one first. farming for pets works here to, gortez drops a few for example, my pet drops from him and its pretty cool looking to.
8. helping other people out...
I know this one is obvious but doing it in high level places where you need some gear is a bonus, you might get what you want and the other person gets to finish the game (if your really grumpy about it think about they will get stuck waiting to) for example I helped some people out with a dungeon and I got the redcoats livery. been farming for it awhile, decided to help and got it. you obviously have the time so why not do it.
9. making new characters...
have you done all the classes yet? if you haven't do the rest, same story line but different interactions and quests. even if you have no doubt you forgot allot of it. take off all the stuff and put it on your main and delete or start over, or if you don't want to make a new account (friend the lower level with your max so you can be friends with yourself) starting over may be a pain, but at least you know the mechanics for each class when you start over, and it will be fun to re experience it as a lower level.
10. sitting around doing nothing...
this may seem like a joke but it really isn't. if your in for some drama head over to Avery's court on Avery realm and wait for it to happen. this ties in to the other things to, showing off your mount. helping people, and being close to the bazaar if you want to do some bazaar farming. People will tell you to get active but for once I'm telling you, you don't have to. well that's all for now. I wish you luck with your endeavors in fighting the boredom. best wishes...
