Fly through Cool Ranch in American Style!

Our American Pirate101 players are feeling just a touch more patriotic this month thanks to the brand new Soaring Eagle mount! If you’re looking for a great place to spread your wings, then the frontier of Cool Ranch might just be the best place in the Spiral where you can feel at home!

June was a great month in Pirate101 where the new Heckhound pets came to PvP and we celebrated our annual “Sail into Summer” sale with a new ship in the Crown Shop.

Thanks for playing and read on for more fun and fan information for Pirate101.


Rogue's Gallery: Rooster Cogburn

Speaking of Cool Ranch, the coolest bird in Cooper’s Roost is Rooster Cogburn. If you joined us for KI Live last month, you saw us play through just one of his many quests that will result in Rooster Cogburn joining your pirate crew. Just think, the biggest six shooters in the west coupled with the best pirate in all the Spiral. It sounds like a match made in heaven. Read on for more backstory information about Rooster Cogburn than you can shake a tail-feather at.

Subject: Rooster Cogburn

Home: Cool Ranch

Weapon of Choice: Six Shooter

Occupation: Sherriff

Like many of the fowl in Cool Ranch, Russel “Rooster” Cogburn is a veteran of the War Between the Flocks – he fought in an elite band of raiders for the Confederacy. He lost his eye toward the end of the war, and the horrors he witnessed and experienced left him bitter and broken, quick to drive away any would-be friend with a stream of insults and harsh words.

His distaste for the lawlessness of war left Rooster with a high regard for the law – criminals and troublemakers are Rooster’s most dire enemies. After his beloved Confederacy lost, Rooster went west, settling in Cooper’s Roost as the town’s sheriff.

Since arriving in Cool Ranch, his crusade against lawlessness has been unending, but the number of desperadoes and outlaws in the wide open skies forced Rooster to do the one thing he swore he’d never do – ask for help. And so, Rooster came face to face with a daring young stranger, whose bravery would change Rooster’s life forever...
