Fortune Teller troubles!

 
Yarrrrr!
 
    How is everybody doing? After playing some P101 today, I decided since I am right near one of my favorite dungeons in the game, I would take videos of my swashbuckler completing it, along with pictures and any tips that I have for it!
 
    Miranda is one of my favorites because it is about the dead man's hand cards and other elements that are connected to the real world. [Love how KI puts these in!] Anyways I hope you all enjoy it and hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
 
Reading of the Cards!
    We aren't quite at the Dungeon portion of this post yet, we still have to do a few things! First we must visit the Fortune tellers in Santo Pollo skyway to read our fortune with her cards, and help us find Captain Blood! [Wizard101 cards spotted on the table!]


    After seeing our fate in the cards, we have to confront the wraith named death. To do this the fortune tellers tell us to go over to the tree with the crows on it. Once we get there the crows say they are hungry. We venture back to Santo Pollo to collect corn from a local there. She lets us take as much as we want since we helped El Toro defeat El Guapo! Sail back to the Island and feed the crows!
 
    Once you go back and talk to the Fortune teller, Madame Nadya, She informs you that you must search from Black Bart, as Death is looking for him. She tells you to go to the haunted skyways and to collect haunted souls in the sky!


    After you collect the 12 souls in the skyway [be careful of the skull snakes and bloodbats flying everywhere if you are trying to skip battles] you have to head to the Church Graveyard nearby to confront Black Bart! Once there you will engage in a Battle. The tast is to first destroy the 2 gravestones in the right side of the map then defeat all enemies. Since I am a swashbuckler, I sent my pirate over to deal with the tombstones quickly, and left my companions to deal with the enemies. My pet also took on a mob almost all by himself! :D
    After you have defeated Black bart and his helpers, death will appear and will tell you all about Captain Blood and the backstory on why no one can defeat him or kill him. To learn more about where we can find bloods hand with the cards needed to finish the card game with death, we have to go talk to Sly Winkum!


    Once you talk to Sly, he tells you that El Toro and Captain Blood had a duel and Captain Bloods hand was cut off. If we can find that hand we could finish the card game with death so blood can be stopped once and for all! Sly tells us to go and talk to Don Rodrigo! Once we are at the Estate, El toro emerges from Don and both El toro and Sally join our crew to help! :) Woot!
 
    After leaving Santo Pollo we head to the place where El toro and Captain blood had their duel. El Toro believes Bloods hand fell into the lake in Gold Creek. Once there, you will have to go swimming for hands! o.0 Creepy. As you are only a pirate and totally not a wizard who can breath underwater, you only have a couple of turns to defeat all the enemies underwater. Better be quick!
 
    Once you collect the hand, head back to talk to Sly Winkum. He is impressed you have found the hand and tells you now its time to find Bloods Cards! He continues to tell you about Miranda the Ghost Town where Blood and Death had their card game. After speaking to him head to Haunted skyway! Its Dungeon time! ;)


    Once you reach Miranda Docks, when you walk up to the gate, you get a view of the ghost town. Then you see someone asking for help. When you enter, you go up to her and then get bombarded from a skeleton. Fight him to move on. Once you are finished the lady dissapears as she was just a ghost and to get to the saloon you must fight another battle because it is in your way as El Toro says!
    At the Saloon, you meet the card dealer and he tells you where to find each card. Once you finish the tasks and collect all 5 cards after multiple battles, return to the Saloon to play Bloods hand! You place his hand with the cards on the table and BOOM! Blood appears and is angered by this. He wants to battle you. You get to pick your 3 companions who join  you in this battle so that is a plus! I chose Bonnie Anne, Sarah Steele and Sally since they are my favorite and better companions imo. If I had a 4th choice I would have chose El Toro also since this battle is connected to him kinda. There are random sparks of fire all around the map every turn, if you are not high level you may want to try and get rid of them so you do not keep getting damage from them every turn.
    After you defeat all of the enemies and Blood, you get the key to the Motherload Mine and finish the dungeon!
 
Geez was that long! xD
I hope you all enjoyed this as much as I did!
Thanks for reading! Until next time!

Mixing Companions!

Yarrrrr!
   
    I had a great idea and I'm wondering if KI will ever go down this route since Pirate101 is about companions. Instead of Pets like in Wizard101, how about we get to hatch companions? :) Here is a rough design I just made up of a hatch hybrid between Bonnie anne and Egg Chen. LOL
    LOL Hatch gone wrong... xD
 
So what do you think? Would you want Pirate101 have a new feature to let us mix and hatch our companions with other players companions? Unlock cool new talents and epics? I think it would be a great idea!
