Monquista King

Seamstress / Stitching

P.1.035 -- Spiral Date 441948

Eloise Merryweather has made her way to all the worlds of Pirate101 and will now be found in the proximity of Prospector Zeke throughout the Spiral. For a small Crowns fee, she will allow you to transfer the Stats of one item onto the Appearance of another.

  1. Step 1: Select the item you want to use for the Appearance.
  2. Step 2: Select the item you want to use for the Stats.
  3. Step 3: Click Create and you'll have a whole new outfit with the look and stats you want combined into one!

Please heed these important things to note about this process:

  • Both items will be removed from your backpack and replaced with the new item that will be created with the Appearance and colors of one piece, and the Stats and name of the other, as you specified.
  • The name of the item will be transferred from the Stats item, along with the bonuses.
  • The bonuses of the appearance item will completely disappear, and be overwritten by the bonuses of the stats item.
  • Once the transaction is complete, and you've purchased the item, it cannot be undone!
  • This process costs Crowns.
  • Unlike Wizard101, Eloise does not carry standard clothing patterns in her inventory.
  • Although Eloise is good at what she does, she will not stitch weapons of conflicting types to each other, e.g., you can't stitch a crossbow to a two-handed sword, but shooty weapons will stitch just fine to other shooty weapons.
  • There will be an in-game tool tip for using Stitching; however, it will be a “silent” tool tip until we can add voiceover at a later time.

Free-to-Play Changes

New players will encounter Premium Areas earlier than previously. However, both of the following new Premium Areas will be given to all accounts that have existing characters created before these updates are released to the live game:

  • Prologue: Part 1—the first Premium Area will be encountered at Traitor's Cave on Blood Shoals island.
  • Prologue: Part 2—the second Premium Area will be encountered during the Quest "To Jonah Town" just before players dock to Jonah Town.
