Return to Valencia

P.1.080 – Spiral Date 587218

Yarr! Adventures await ye in the highly anticipated release of Valencia Part 2 in Pirate101! The story of the battle against the Armada continues within the grand city of Florenza in the Calabria Skyway. Face off against the Armada’s evil leader, Kane, and put an end to his tyranny. Pirates who have completed the quest “A Call for Help” in Aquila should visit Captain Avery to take on the quest “Return to Valencia.” You’ll know you have completed the required quest if you have the badge Aquila Legend.


With this storyline extension, players will be able to level their characters from 65 to 70 (both Character and Nautical Level). Upgraded powers, new weapons, gear and ships are available to your Pirate in Valencia. In addition, the available gold cap has been increased to 250,000 gold. Several new badges have also been added to commemorate your completion of quests and exploration in Valencia.

For Crowns players, there are 2 new Chapters priced at 2,499 Crowns each.

Level 70 Henchmen have also been added to the Crown Shop to assist you in battle.



Pirates who complete the quest “Subterranean Subterfuge” will recruit the Valencia resistance fighter, Contessa Argento to their crew. Contessa’s Swashbuckler skills will be an asset to every Pirate in the fight against the Armada!

Contessa Argento is a darling of the Royal Court, dancing and dodging her way through webs of scheme and scandal as deftly as she dances with her sword. Intrigue is as natural to her as breathing, but now she finds that she can't play the game with a clear conscience anymore. She's noticed where Kane is taking Valencia, and refuses to stand idly by. The Contessa started some schemes of her own, and found her way to the Resistance. It's time for her to take a stand.

The following companions have received a new promotion quest at Level 70. This exciting mission will lead you on the trails of the notorious Captain Hande and teach you more about a very important (and famous) pirate!

  • Birgus Latro
  • Dead Mike
  • Gaspard De Vole
  • Lucky Jack Russell
  • Milo Graytail
