Pirate101 will be offline for approximately one hour early tomorrow morning 11/7/2012 at 3am US Central to apply updates from the Test Realm to the live game. Please see the Upkeep and Improvement Notes for Spiral Date 420721: https://www.pirate101.com/free_game/update_notes
The Test Realm will also be taken offline at the same time until further notice, but don't be sad, Pirates! The Test Realm will definitely be making a return sometime in the future. Thanks for helping us test the Test Realm.
