|Thrifty Autumn Walker|
As you all may know, I have been making a series of posts detailing different challenges you can try out to make Pirate101 more difficult. In my last challenge post I talked about trying to complete the game without spending any gold or crowns. You can see the rules here.
I decided to make a new pirate to try this challenge out with, Thrifty Autumn Walker. I will be blogging about her as I quest through the game. I am actually pretty excited about this experiment since I have never done anything like this before.
One of the biggest changes I am going to have to make while questing is actually paying attention to what I receive as drops. I usually don't. When I quest, I just plow through and then when my backpack is full, I head to the Bazaar. I don't even look at what is in there. I just sell everything that is auctionable and then check out the no auction items. Most of the time I end up selling most of that gear as well. I do the same for ship equipment. Then I use the gold from selling to buy whatever I need.

So what's up next? I plan to reach nautical level 8 (so I can equip some cannons I received) and then pick up with the main quests in Traitor's Cave. Today I will also be posting a poll on my twitter account asking whether or not I should try this challenge without using companion orders. (Click here for the poll.) I am thinking I might give it a try, but I am curious to see what other people think.
Before I go, here is a run down of all the notable stuff I received:
Gear - Pirate Daggers (starting weapon), Cunning Ring (ring), Voyager's Spyglass (totem), Corsair's
Jacket (outfit), Vagabond's Shoes (boots), Warrior Helm (hat)
Ship - Raft, Broken Wheel (starting wheel), Horn of Crimson Fog (starting horn), Used Rudder (rudder), Rigged Mainsail (sails), Skeleton Billethead (figurehead), Rusty Cannons (cannons), Iron Cannons (cannons - will equip at nautical level 8)
Companions - Subodai (level 4), Bonnie Anne (level 4), Fan Flanders (level 5), Sarah Steele (level 5), 15 training points remaining
Powers/Talents/Doubloons - Sneak Attack, Walk in the Shadows, Naturally Tough, Light Armor, Treasure Bath (2), Mark of Skull Island, Sluggish
Pets/Snacks - Tiny Daisy (Ostrich - level 11), 3 quest reward snacks (forgot what they were, used all 3), Banana Gumbo (2, used both), Scrimshaw Swiss (used)
I will try to find a better way to capture/post the items I get. Also, I am hoping to make posts about this character weekly. Starting the game over again has been a lot of fun so far! I hope you enjoyed reading this post! I'm sure the next one will be less long-winded. (Does that mean it will be short-winded?) Thanks for reading and see you soon!
