Earn Double When Promoting Loot (Emissary System)
There’s a new system within the sport referred to as Emissaries, the place you select to signify a sure buying and selling firm throughout that session by including a shiny new flag to your ship. Doing Voyages from that firm, acquiring loot related to that firm, and doing random occasions (defined on the finish of this information) will improve the Degree of your Emissary flag. Promoting loot to that firm whereas having an Emissary flag will multiply the worth you promote the loot for, in addition to the repute earned with that firm, relying on the flag’s stage.
For instance, when you promote stuff to the Gold Hoarders whereas a Lvl 4 Gold Hoarder Emissary flag is fortunately flapping in your ship, the loot’s worth is doubled. At Lvl 5 (the utmost), loot is +150% worth (midway between doubled and tripled). Lvls 2 and three provide smaller-value boosts.
The 5 notches within the high flag and full circle across the cranium within the leftmost flag point out these Athena’s Fortune Emissaries have reached Lvl 5.
Everytime you cease representing the Emissary by decreasing the flag, you get an on the spot gold reward (as much as 5,000 at lvl 5) and a considerable repute enhance with that firm. Reducing the flag is often finished when it’s important to go away the sport (end the session), or once you attain Lvl 5 and get the bonus mission (learn the following paragraph).
At Lvl 5 Emissary, a brand new immediate will seem with that firm’s consultant to get some particular, bonus maps referred to as Emissary Quests. These maps give higher loot than typical treasure maps and are usually very value your whereas to do. At this level, it’s often finest to promote all that firm’s loot first for +150% worth, get the bonus quests, decrease the Lvl 5 flag, and begin representing the corporate once more from scratch at Lvl 1. This manner, once you do the Emissary Quests, you’ll elevate the flag to Lvl 5 once more, get a brand new set of Emissary Quests, decrease your flag once more, stand up to Lvl 5 once more and so on. That is the core loop of the Emissary system! By doing this, you are taking full benefit of the good Emissary Quest loot whereas additionally getting good boosts in repute with every flag decreasing.
Essential: Keep in mind to get the Emissary Quests with the NPC earlier than decreasing the flag!
As such, the Emissary system rewards you for having lengthy play classes (the place you’re in a position to do the core loop again and again) and conserving your loot within the ship for longer (so you’ll be able to promote all of it without delay at Lvl 4 or 5).
The one draw back with being an Emissary is that the shiny new flag could make you a extra engaging goal for different pirates, since damaged Emissary flags obtained by sinking different ships will be offered on the Reaper’s Hideout for as much as 10.000 gold for a Lvl 5 flag. Reaper’s Bones Emissary gamers, nonetheless, can stand up to 25.000 for a similar Lvl 5 damaged flag by getting their flag to Lvl 5 themselves! Fortunately, Reaper’s Emissaries are at all times marked on the map and visual to all.
Reaper’s Bones Emissaries that attain a Lvl 5 flag and return to the Reaper’s Hideout NPC won’t obtain an Emissary Quest, however as an alternative will acquire the magical capacity to see the place of any Emissary ship from different firms at present on the server, neatly marked on their ship’s map! You’ll be able to see what stage a Reaper’s Bones Emissary is by counting the crimson notches subsequent to their ship on the map.

Because of the unimaginable enhance of earnings and repute it offers, I absolutely advocate being an Emissary at any time when you’ll be able to.
To get an Emissary flag, forged your vote on the tables beside the respective firm’s NPC at outposts. The vast majority of the crew must vote on the desk earlier than the Emissary flag will be raised or lowered.
Fortunately, you don’t must go to Reaper’s Hideout to signify Reaper’s Bones: they’ve a desk in every outpost. Search for a dangling skeleton someplace on the island, often close to seashores.
Yet one more facet word about Reaper’s Bones Emissaries: not like the opposite Emissaries, these guys have a tough time incomes Emissary ranges by acquiring loot, except it’s stolen from different gamers. They stage up a lot quicker by partaking in PvP and doing random occasions, particularly Forts (see RANDOM EVENTS).
On the upside, any sort of loot will be offered on the Reaper’s Hideout.
