16) How do you get more gold?
Currently in Beta (may subject to change), you can get gold by claiming the daily reward from login claim, getting gold from the 40%, 100% and Perfection Stage Bonuses, or from buying gold.
17) How to use the Shadow Shop?
In order to use the shadow shop, you will have to be level 50 first. Once you reach 50, you can access the shadow shop from an icon that is next to the trial fight icon OR you can access it through the harbor. Once you are there, you’ll probably notice 5 different Icons:
C-Rank User: 10000 silver/click
B-Rank User: 20000 silver/click (unavailable until you get it through clicking C-Ranks – random)
A-Rank User : 50000 silver/click (unavailable until you get it through clicking B-Ranks – random)
S- Rank User: 80000 silver/click (unavailable until you get it through clicking A-Ranks – random)
SS-Rank User: 50 gold/click (unavailable until you get it through clicking S-Ranks – random)
By clicking the icons you will obtain “shadows” (kind of like devil fruits). There are two MAJOR types of shadows: ”Ghost Shadows” and Buff Shadows. The Ghost Shadows are useless while the buff shadows contains a specific buff (these are upgradable and has Ranks). During the course of clicking the C-Rank User, you may notice that sometimes the B-Rank becomes available. If this happens you can choose to click the B-Rank User icon. By clicking the B-Rank User icon you may or may not (random) activate the next tier (same goes for A, S, and SS rank). Once you clicked B-Rank + icons, they become unavailable again (either going back to C-Rank or activating the next tier rank). You can choose to either sell or pick up the shadows (pick up is limited to buff shadows ONLY)
18) How do you use the Shadows?
In order to use shadows, you will have access the shadow shop and click the “shadow inventory” on the bottom right hand corner. On this new page, you can navigate through your crew and the Shadows. Shadows are classified in the ranks of: C, B, A, S, and SS (C being the worst and SS being the best). From the screen you can see that the slots for the Shadows are only unlocked at level 1 (for the first slot) and then every 10 levels starting at level 40 and up to 100. You can place a shadow in the unlocked slot. These shadows are upgradable (see question 20) and have specific stats for every single one of them.
19) How to properly synthesis/upgrade your Shadows?
To properly synthesis and upgrade your favorable shadows, drag the unwanted shadow on top of the shadow you want to upgrade. When you release your mouse click, a notification saying “are you sure to make Fruit xxx devour xxx.” Just click confirm and you can see that the exp on your shadow has increased based on what you “fed it.” The following are the exp gained from feeding Shadows.
Feeding a C Rank shadow to a shadow gives: 30 EXP
Feeding a B Rank shadow to a shadow gives: 60 EXP
Feeding a A Rank shadow to a shadow gives: 120 EXP
Feeding a S Rank shadow to a shadow gives: 240 EXP
Feeding a SS Rank shadow to a shadow gives: 720 EXP
Note: Shadows can only be fed with shadows of the same rank or shadows below it’s rank. The following list the limitations:
C Ranks can’t devour B ranks, A ranks, S ranks, and SS ranks.
B Ranks can’t devour A ranks, S ranks, and SS ranks.
A Ranks can’t devour S ranks, and SS ranks.
S Ranks can’t devour SS ranks.
Note: When you feed a shadow that has exp, the exp is transferred over to the new shadow.
20) How to get more vitality?
You can get more Vitality:
a. By going to another person’s harbor and catch their fish (sometimes another person might have done it already). You will get 2 vitality per catch, only able to do it once on each person up to a max of 10 times per day (total of 20 vitality).
b. Waiting 30 minutes to gain 1 vitality.
c. Claiming the reward for accepting the 7th and 3rd daily quest

22) Can you log off during Autoplay or will autoplay cancel? Does it gain you any vitality or take vitality to work?
Autoplay does not require vitality nor does it gain you any vitality. Vitality is gained very 30 minutes. So if you’re offline and 12 hour is passed, you’ll get 24 vitality. Autoplay only earns you exp and prestige. When you log off or close the browser, the autoplay continues until the timer runs out and you’ll get your reward when you log on. This is also true for chain attack; however, chain attack consumes vitality.
23) A simple tutorial/explanation on the 4 Online Events
One Piece Battle
– The One Piece battle is a passive online event that doesn’t require much attention besides signing up for it. One Piece battles only occurs on Wednesday and Saturday at 9:30PM (GMT -5). To enter the One piece battle, simply sign up for the event 5 hours PRIOR to the start of the event. Once you signed up, all you have to do is to wait for the Event to be over in order to claim your rewards. The event is a tournament based bracket (like the one from Pockie Ninja). You can also view the fight between combatants in the Top 32.
Note: Only the Top 32 and higher rankings will obtain more prizes in addition to the 50k silver that everyone gets.
– Like the One Piece Battle, the Legion battle is a passive online event that doesn’t require much attention as long as you’re in a Legion. It occurs every Tuesday and Friday from 9:30AM to 10AM (GMT -5). This event is a face off between all the Legions in Pockie Pirates to determine who is the best legion. The battle is based on a warship battle that simulates a battle according to your crew’s stats. Higher leveled warships does have extra stat boost that will contribute to your successes. You can view the Legion battle fights during the event but you can’t “actively participate” in the battle (it’s all simulated). Once the event is over, if you’re in the Top 15 (Need confirmation), you will get a notification from the system providing you with rewards.
White beard Challenge
– The White Beard Challenge is one of the most popular events. It occurs everyday at 9AM and 9PM (GMT -5). There is a level requirement of 30. This event features a fight between you and white beard (as well as everyone else participating in this event). This event rewards you with silver and prestige and the amount of silver you obtain is equal to the damage you deal to White Beard. Every single time you attack white beard, there will be a 1 minute cool down (starts counting down as soon as the fight starts) before your next attack.
Note: You can use 5 gold to refresh this cool down.
Currently, only the Top 10 damage dealers and the person who kills White beard (dealt the killing blow) will obtain additional rewards in the form of silvers. The person who kills White beard, regardless of ranking on White Beard will obtain 1 million silver. Also, you can skip the fight simulation by clicking the skip button on the bottom right hand side (The 1 minute cool down counts down even if you decide to watch the fight).
Tip: Before you participate in this event, make sure to turn other player’s character model off so you can easily navigate to White Beard to click on him in order to attack.
– The Team Battle is also one of the most popular events. It occurs everyday from 8AM to 9AM and 8PM to 9PM (GMT -5). The format of this event is pretty similar to that of a legion battle except you have an “active” role in the participation of this event (finding team mates; the ship battles are simulated). In order to participate in the Team Battles, you have to be at least level 30, since the first battle is for level 30+. Once you meet this requirement all you have to do is to click the join button and find a room with other people.
Note: You can also make you own room and you can also add a password to the room
Once the host of the room starts the battle, the simulation of the fight is then started. From my experience in Closed beta, you will have to stay until the end of the simulation. Once the simulation is over, you can leave the battle and the rewards will be shown. You can obtain weapon shards, armor shards, or the materials (only the orbs) for set items in addition to EXP. There is however, a limitation of 10 Team battle per day despite your failures and successes. So, make sure you get a good team that will be able to win fights.
24) What does the stats in crew develop mean?
As many of you have noticed, one very nice feature in Pockie Pirates is the Develop feature. This feature allows you to “upgrade” your 4 category stats. The following are the stat names and their meaning:
Strength: Strength stands for “physical power.” Upgrading this stat will increase your selected character’s physical attack power and physical defense.
Intellect: Intellect stands for “magical power.” Upgrading this stat will increase your selected character’s magical attack power and magical defense.
Physique: Physique stands for “health.” Upgrading this stat will increase your selected character’s health point.
Agility: Agility stands for “speed.” Upgrading this stat will increase your selected character’s speed.
These stats can be upgraded using Prestige and Gold (two types). The variation of cost depends on the character rank (B, A, S, and SS). I believe that the second type of using Gold, the more expensive option, always gives positive stats (need confirmation).
Note: As you are developing/upgrading these stats, you may notice that some of the stats has a red down arrow (downgrades your stat). If the stat is good for a class i would suggest accepting the stat by clicking “Replace (accept),” if the stat is bad for a class i would suggest rejecting it by clicking “Maintain” (keeping original stats).
(Corrections by lukstealer)
Tip: If the stat are coming up with red and down arrows, level up and try developing later.
The following are my opinions of beneficial stats for each character type:
Sniper: Strength > Agility > Physique > Intellect (Damage based)
Doctor: Agility > Physique > Intellect > Strength (Doctors for Buffing)
Swordsmen: Physique > Strength > Agility > Intellect (Tanking based) OR Strength > Agility > Physique > Intellect (Damage Based)
Navigator: Intellect > Agility > Physique > Strength (Damage based)
Note: These are my opinions, don’t be afraid to formulate your own strategies/opinions
