Pirates of the Burning Sea: Registration Opens & New Seasonal Items

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,595MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Portalus Games, the company that took over development of Pirates of the Burning Sea, has announced that registrations for the game are now open and that the official site is being 'rebuilt' but without a firm date when it will be finished. In addition, the team has announced that, with registrations open, they are in the process of developing seasonal items for the game.

Now that registration is open again we can get back to the business of making new things! First up is a batch of new items for the Seasonal Item Exchange. After the new build goes live tomorrow, you'll be able to pick up the following new items:



  • Dutch Gunpowder - This gunpowder improves both reload rate and accuracy


  • Wooden Sabots - A permanent outfitting that provides a better damage bonus than Wadding, but comes with a small reload penalty


  • Dutch Chainmail - This armor gives a better damage resistance bonus than a regular chain shirt, but its increased weight means it doesn't provide a bonus to guard


  • Inflammatory Writ - Reading from this document will infuriate your crew, increasing your reload rate, damage, and morale regeneration rate, but your crew will be so angry they won't be able to repair your ship. Using this item activates your repair item cooldown

    While I like PotBS, no good can come of this.

    Miss my Locust Sleek.

    God that was an awesome pvp ship before stealth got nerf'd to f**king stupid and back again.

     

    Miss my Mastercraft Locust when I could take down Ships Of the Line solo at level 30ish. Overpowered I know, but fuck it was fun and intense. Some of the best PvE action I ever experienced.

    I should have known they would have to  tie a pork chop around my neck to get some one to play the game with me.

     

    The one amazing thing was the people that played the game before all the hackers came and drove them off. Once they got wiped out by the hackers they never said a word or threw anyone under the buss, they just left the game. (Nothing else they could do)
