Free Realms Video Game Guide with Referee Ruby - Pirates!
Arrr mate! I am Captain Shadow and I’ll be guiding you through the adventures of pirating, on Free Realms!
There are pirates all over Sacred Grove. Talk to one of them if you’d like to head down to the docks and become a real pirate.
If you can’t find any of them, you can use your Atlas to go straight to the boat in Seaside.
Click on the book next to Jolly Roger to get started. Before we go though, we need to find someone to play with.
You can invite your friends for some intensive pirating action or just select “Quick Play” to be randomly grouped. Now that I’ve rounded up Referee Ruby into my crew, let’s get started. Avast!
Of course, Danger Tiger can come too.
The objective is to collect Treasure Chests by picking them up and returning to your dock. You can also destroy other ships, steal their loot, and return to your dock. The player with the most gold at the end of the round wins. Each round last for 10 minutes, at the end of the round, you’ll get to spin the loot wheel regardless of what place you’re in! There are 3 different maps total: Treasure Isle, Shipwreck Cavern, and Arctic Bay.
The controls are simple. Use the arrow or WASD keys to move, and Ctrl or Left Mouse Click to fire.
If this is your first time sailing, you might want to look out for a few…. “occupational hazards.” First, there are power-ups scattered across the map. Pick them up to get a temporary special power.
Speed - The speed power-up makes you go faster
Repair - Repair restores needed health to your ship
Firepower - Allows you to inflict more damage with every successful hit
Longshot – Cannon balls travel a greater distance allowing you to hit ships from farther
Rapidfire – Shoot normal cannon balls at a faster rate
Whirlpools are shortcuts that can move the player’s ship around the map faster. The whirlpool teleportation will transport your ship instantly to another location on the map.
Currents can get you where you need to go fast so long as you are moving in the direction the current is flowing. You won’t get very far sailing against the current.
Neutral Forts are located in strategic points around the map. They will fire on any ship that enters their sites. The Player’s Home Fort will protect the player from enemy ships that stray too close and will also heal your ship when it is docked near it.
Now let’s go over some rules: No you can’t enter your enemies dock. No you can’t destroy their fort. And no, you definitely can’t steal their treasures once it’s unloaded at their fort. Now we’re ready to set sail! Anchors away!
You start the game off at your dock.
Head out and look for some treasure!
"Captain, enemy ship sighted off the port bow! Should we engage them and steal their treasure?"
Make it so, First Mate Ruby!
"Oh no, we’re hit! We’re taking on water, Captain! What should I do?! Let’s go into my fort and see what happens!"
Once you’re inside your fort, your ship will be restored to full health. You can also change your ship to a bigger one for more awesome power and room for treasure or smaller one for more speed and maneuvers but less cargo spaces. I went with the small ship. Now, let’s get back out there!
Oooo, treasures! My precious treasures! Return to your base to drop off the loot! We’re rich! Yarr, great job mateys. Now it’s time to enjoy our loot!
Don’t forget to check out the Station Cash Marketplace to get some awesome pirate gear.
Yarrr and avast,
See you buccaneers in game!
