This month’s Gold Box contains a blaze of bright bounty that will complement the sparkle of any pirate’s horde. In addition to the tantalizing Toucan familiar and the shiny Sea Turtle pet, the Department o’ the Treasury has added several new radiant rewards which are sure to catch yer eye. Look for glimmering gold Hedgehog and Seal pets, and four new furniture items in October’s boxes!
For that Gold Box collection needing a touch of color, you may find Violet Volumizer hair dye, and captivating chocolate trinkets and Chroma. New to this box - persimmon is now included, and can appear as a color for trinkets, furniture and clothing.
If ye find yer pockets overflowing with the golden trinkets, they can be redeemed for awe-inspiring prizes at any Trading Post.
Gold boxes will only be available until October 14 at 3 PM PDT. You can find the full list of available prizes, right here.
The cries of pirates echoed through the heavens as they battled in the Deadly Lairs of Loot. Alas, the furor of the monsters far exceeded the lowly treasure they protected and the sounds of combat turned to despair. Now, the sea monsters are again agitated, but this time, the rewards they offer promise to make it worth the risk.*
Brave any of the deadly sea monster lairs this weekend and face additional challenges with increased rewards! Could it be a celestial event has caused the monsters to berserk, or is there some dark, more sinister power at work here? Brave voyagers on their way to Atlantean Outposts, the Cursed Isles, and the Haunted Seas can anticipate a number of changes this weekend:
The Deadly Lairs event will be active from September 27th at 1 PM PDT until September 30th at 1 PM PDT. If you're on a Doubloon Ocean, you will need a bravery badge. Pirates on Cerulean will need to have a subscription to participate.
Once more unto the breach, me hearties!
*We did hear your feedback about the Deadly Lairs of Loot event from last month, and settings have been adjusted. Feedback and comments may be left in this thread.
The Department o’ Lost Treasures has located the Blood Tiger in a strange, distant land. Put together a crew and get to work gatherin' yer Eights so you can take one home today! Don't fret, as you have until the end of October before the feline is gone! Rumors are circulating that these sanguineous beasts are a harbinger of tricky times ahead. If true, ye pirates can look forward to a nice treat!
The Palace Shoppe has reached maximum capacity, so the Department o’ the Treasury is reducing prices on select pets. Take advantage of this opportunity to have your very own elephant to hug and squeeze and call George.
During this sale the following pets are discounted:
The Palace pets will be discounted until October 2, 11 AM PDT and Blood Tigers will be available until November 1.
Sharpen the swords and be sure ye have extra cannon balls in the hold. The brigands are in a frenzy!
This Brigand Frenzy event will be active from September 20th at 11 AM PDT until September 24th at 11 AM PDT. Plenty of time to take a little extra from those pesky brigands. If you have any feedback, or suggestions for future weekend events, please let us know!
Avast ye scallywags! If ye find yerself always under the heel of the Imperial authority when yer evening becomes too boisterous, this month’s Limited Edition ship is perfect for any rowdy freedom-loving pirate. Swagger over to yer local shipyard, and let’s get this parrrrty started!
The Roister Class Sloop will let ye and yer hearties carouse the night away! Even while manning a station, yer pirate won’t be far from the rum keg.
The captain’s cabin has private reserve rum taps to ensure the rum is never gone* as ye chart a course for good times. The captain also has access to a private reserve of swords and knives thoughtfully pinned across the walls and tables. Watch where ye lean!
For pirates who enjoy a good wager, roulette and craps tables are below deck, with easy access to food and drink. And, if the captain needs a few scurvy dogs to man the bilge pump or swing a hammer, duty stations are within easy reach.
This ship is built for “multitasking”--the navigator will find everything close at hand (or hook) for an uproarious, fun pillage – cards, beverages, and for those quick maneuvers to avoid crashing into the rocks, a golden helm. A party everyone will talk about for years to come – if they remember what happened!
With a sword in one hand and a mug in the other, what could go wrong? The Roister Class Sloop will only be available in Shipyards through October 15, 2013.
*Unless ye forget to stock the ship before leaving port. Then you’ll have a mutiny to deal with, which can be as tumultuous as a good parrrrty.
For a limited time, pirates may have their portraits painted with backgrounds that feature secretive Black Market locations. Additionally, all Black Box trinkets may now be held in portraits!

Proprietors of the Black Market have deemed pictorial representations of all twenty-five Black Box trinkets to be acceptable. Ye may now show off yer collection of Black Box trinkets without worry of repercussions from those shadowy agents!
Rally once more to defeat Viking raiders, to unsettle Imperial fortifications, and to gather more treasure! During this event, expeditions will be easier to come by and they will yield extra loot for victorious pirates.

There are baubles and trinkets to be won at both the Imperial outposts and Viking raids, but only for those who own a subscription on Cerulean or those who possess a rank badge on doubloon oceans. This Expedition Rally event will be active from September 13th at 3 PM PDT until September 18th at 3 PM PDT. Plenty of time to bloody some Imperial noses!
