The Spyglass

Sea Serpents and Gryphons!

At long last, pirates across the great oceans can finally begin personalizing their favorite ships with new shipboard gear! To help you prepare to turn your old and busted sloop into a completely tricked-out piracy machine, let's take a closer look at the bevy of items now available for purchase from your local Furnisher.

First off, new cannons! The new Gilded-style cannon is available in all three sizes, and looks as great on a sloop as it does on a war frigate!

Small cannon for sloops! Medium cannon for brigs! Large cannon for frigates!

Next is the new Gilded Helm. Don't worry: one size fits all!

Charting a new and more fabulous course!

And we've saved the best for last: new figureheads! Narrow ships, like the sloop, get the new Gryphon figurehead...

...while larger ships can utilize the new Sea Serpent prow!

This next one should be familiar to anyone who previously owned a large ship, but it's now available for placement on ships as small as a cutter: the mermaid figurehead!

And for those of you who want to keep your skills sharp while you're sailing around in your newly gilded ship, we've also added a variety of new practice dummy items! There is a Swordfighting and Rumble dummy for each gender, and they can be set to mimic an existing pirate's skills and appearance in battle! Spar with a copy of your friend, or beat up on your enemies in the comfort of your captain's cabin! We won't tell anyone.

What else could we possibly have planned for this brave new era of ship customization? Only time will tell! For now, be sure to grab some doubloons and hit your nearest Furnisher to take advantage of all this goodness today!

I can certainly see Dub prices going up a bit higher here with the new deluxes badges coming out as well.

I haven't played PP for a couple of months now, even though I've had the subscription. However, with these changes I'll definitely be spending many hours in the next few weeks playing! AWESOME!

Deluxe badges wtf?!

hmm... nice >> I don't think people would make a big deal of costumizing their ship with the cannons, but the rest is awesome.
Practice dummies won't be a biggy but it will get the money flowing faster.
Now the question is: Who has any money left? dubs are too high these days, and with the econemy getting ruined i dunn think ppl can afford as much XD (deluxe badge... okay...)

the figureheads are really cool, but they should be customizable. also, it would be great if we could design flags.
maybe you should have a figurehead designing contest. Great job, love the cannons.

This sucks....there is nothing explaining exactly what or how many of what you need.....so if you buy a figurehead for a WB say, it may or may not fit...but you don't know until you've bought it and tried it......

With the new update the icon trade commodities has been replace with order for this shop.
But what about all the raw material needed at furnis, will we have to go to our islands market place to make our "orders"trade for it?
It seems one can't anymore,
there is no possibility of trading at the market!
So it's back an forth to check the price at the market place and back to the stall to adjust the price and the amount needed.
Alot of extra work, no thanks please fix this somehow...

Too bad if someone have a Longboat, since I don't think that new stuff would fit there.....
Maybe there should be also longboat stuff?
But rather not. I don't think that OOO would make new items just for one kind of ship.
So, maybe we need another vessel in Longboat style? I have an Idea for such ship: Drakkar, bigger than Merchant Galeon. What do you think?

Do I need purchase the new ship items on the island where my ship is docked, or can I buy them anywhere & still be able to install them on my ship even if it is docked in a different archipelago? Need to know so I can start outfitting my ships. Please hurry & let me know soon; I've got an itch to shop! LOL!

Err Guys...
I Think El Pallo Diablo Should Be added into the list for sale.

I Also Think Junks ( Chinese Ships) and Griffins ( A Ship Like A Sloop But Can fly Above to Spot enemies.) What Do You Guys Think?

I agree with the fact that the economy is not doing well, and people will not be able to afford dubs.. When i first started playing PP dubs were around 1k.. and sloops were 18k +.. Now dubs are 2.5k and sloops are over 50k.. WOW.. The REAL economy is terrible, while the PP economy is flourishing.. So now you spend $20.00 in real money and you can buy 3 sloops. That is crazy.. I wish they would have more deals for the dub buyers..

I just bought a female swordfighting dummy....now the question is...how do I practice against it. Cause that is what I bought it for and I'm gonna be kinda mad if I can't personally fight against it. I have placed it on my ship but nothing happens. I can't click on it or anything. If there is anyone out there that can help that would be GREAT!

Information for the "Dummies"
Before you place your New Dummy, you have to click on it in your Booty panel, then type the Name of whom you want it to be, it has to be the Name of a Pirate that is presently logged on to PP, or your Name, then place the Dummy as you would any other piece of Furni, have fun.

I saw (and fought) a pair of dummies in a Palace, so they do work on land. They were named for flag royalty of the flag that owned the island.
