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!

Don't forget about Side Quests! They can offer good rewards, and a couple give you new Companions. Plus some of them are funny

Remember that you can use your yum potions to heal your ship while in a nautical battle, so that you don't have to battle on deck.

Before leaving a dungeon, check your quest log to make sure you didn't miss a Zeke item.

Best Place to farm obsidian keys is from the uber-crokagator Stephan in the crokogarten. Defeating him kills the whole mob which gives you more chances for the drop. Done fast enough you can get a key every 30-45 min.

Try Unranked PVP before trying Ranked PVP. Unranked PVP it a great way to try out battle plans without getting penalized for it.

If you're ever bored with the standard Pirate101 experience, farming is a good option. Fight a boss repeatedly, and you can gain some exclusive loot you won't find in the shops. Who knows, you could find something brand new, nobody else has even seen!

If you play on a witchdoctor or privateer, make sure to use a will-based weapon so you critical more often.
