Community! We need your gameplay tips for inclusion in each month's KI Live, just like how we gather questions!

Reply to this forum thread, or one of the social posts we put up over the next few days, and we will select ~5 tips to present on this month's KI Live. Each selected tip will receive a similar amount of Crowns as the 10~ questions we respond too.

Tips should be brief (a sentence or two) and must be appropriate to all ages and make sense for presenting on our KI Lives. They must also not include cheats or extensive spoilers.
Only one tip per player per KI Live please. For social, use #Pirate101Tips

We can't wait to see what great tips you come up with!

"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."

More than one thing you do will end in failure, especially when you enter a harder area. If you keep trying, though. you'll eventually get past it. Even better, come back later with better stats!

Accuracy and Dodge debuffs, such as those that come from Bonnie's scatterblast or a Hold The Line 3/Overwatch 3, can greatly level the playing field, especially in the last game worlds. "You can either spend 6 hours cutting a tree with a dull saw, or spend an extra hour sharpening it to cut the tree down in half the time.", an extra turn spent sharpening the saw will make the entire battle easier!

Don't neglect to level & train your "lesser" companions; if your favored companions end up on on Bed Rest; they will be ready to fill in. And some are quite good, give them a chance!

Help your fellow pirates sink ships - if you're sailing along a skyway and notice a battle, throw in an attack on your way past. It only takes a second and may make that other pirate's day.

Here is my gameplay tip:

When you are reagent hunting or collecting quest items, you can switch to different realms so that you don't have to wait for them to respawn.

When starting a battle, buff first and then let the enemy come to you. It will make the battle a lot easier.

Welcome to the Message Boards Toodee888! Are you sure your tip isn't meant for wizards?

I only wish we could hunt reagents -- but your tip also works for Wooden Chests and Group Plunder.

"Don't forget to help and support your fellow pirates in need!"

When battling against the infamous General Tso, place blood flames down next to his pet 1 spot away, and Congratulations, you win

"With Great Power comes Great Responsibility"

We all have quests to complete and things to do. Though helping someone out, whether they be a less experienced player or not, can really make put a smile on their face and help them on their way!
Good luck to all!
