Community! We need your gameplay tips for inclusion in each month's KI Live (Nov. 29), 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!

Don't neglect to open the Group Plunder Chests, these contain Doubloons which will make battles a lot easier!

Don't forget about Side Quests! Especially the ones that give you Companions and Powers. They are very useful!

If you've found a really precious item you want to keep, a feature was recently added to keep it under lock and key! You can select an item and press the crossed-out coin to make sure you never lose that item, whether it's a pet or rare weapon!

When in a fight, focus on certain enemies instead of spreading out. Most of the time, guaranteeing a defeat can save some of your companions from being wounded!

Only First Strike at 3 ranks has this ability.

When shopping in the Bazaar, you should know that you can sort each type of item list by class or by level, or even by price or number in stock. This should help you find a rare piece for your pirate.

Companion talents that give combat stats make them better in battle, but the ones that help with orders only speed up what would have happened anyway. Choose power over impatience.

If you need to sink a few ships, remember; its usually easier to destroy ships with your cannons in broadside combat than it is boarding and having to take care of enemies one by one.

Don't forget to read the Forum Boards because other players will advise of KI giveaways that otherwise you would never know about!

When encountering a dungeon, don't be afraid to ask for help using the finds a team feature. You might have someone for the team up ledger nice enough to help you and if you later choose to help others through the team up ledger you can obtain badges.
