Meeting new people and playing with friends online is a huge part of what makes Pirate101 a fun MMO game to play! It's easy to add players to your friend's list in Pirate101, where you can then easily play together and chat.
To add a player to your friend's list, first click on their Pirate name which will bring up a window with their name and some options.
From here, click on the green "Add Friend" button. A window will appear confirming that you would like to add this Pirate as your friend.
Now the Pirate you asked to be your friend must accept your friend request. Not all Pirates will accept your friend request, and some Pirates don't have friend requests turned on. That's okay! You can still have fun playing and questing with them without being on their friend list. When a player has accepted your friend request, you will see their name displayed on your friend list.
You can open your friend list at any time by clicking the shaking hands icon in the upper right hand corner of the Pirate101 game.
