Pirate101 Main Quest Line Guide
Cool Ranch Part 1

Wait no more! After over TWO years since our last update to the Pirate101 Quest Line Guide, we’re back and starting it off a Pirate101 Cool Ranch quest guide! This will be intended to help you progress through Cool Ranch, easily one of the biggest worlds in all of  Pirate101!

All the quests you have to do are ordered by areas. The areas are listed in the order you should do them in (unless otherwise specified). That said, questing in Pirate101 is also notorious for making you travel many different Skyways so while we may list a quest as being assigned in a certain area, it may have you travel to other zones that are not listed in this guide. Many quests may involve back and forth travel to chat with different NPCs, which will be simplified in the guide as having the quest say “talk” but not where the NPC is located. Located between brackets are the different parts of each quest, as many quests require you to do multiple things.

To help organize quests, one change in this guide compared to the Skull Island and Monquista/Valencia 1 guides is that this guide will also be divided up based on the Book and Chapter number. For example, this case, Cool Ranch starts in Book 5, Chapter 9. This guide will follow up immediately after the final quest of the Monquista/Valencia 1 guide, “Go West, Young Pirate!”, which concludes Book 4, Chapter 8 and begins Book 5, Chapter 9.

Additionally, some quest descriptions in some instances may only have you do just one thing but there are fights that automatically pull you in while doing the main quest (example: Quest 16 here). These forced fights are not listed as part of the quest breakdown here but you should keep that in mind while questing. On the other hand, there are some activities that are listed as interactions in the quest when they actually ALWAYS result in forced fights (example: Quest 17 and 36 here). Forced fights like this will be listed as combat activities rather than their original quest description. That said, don’t forget to complete the actual quest objective so you don’t accidentally repeat a mob fight!

I have divided the quests in the Spiral into the following groups:

  • Talk: Quests that require an interaction with an NPC.
  • Mob: Quests that require the defeat of regular monsters, either by air or on land
  • Boss: Quests that require the defeat of a Boss, allowing you to manually  choose which companions you will fight with.
  • Cheat: Quests that require the defeat of a Cheating Boss, with all the criteria of a Boss but there may be some cheats or special conditions to keep in mind. 
  • D&C:  Quests that require the collection of something from certain monsters (Defeat and Collect).
  • Broadside: Quests that require Broadside Combat, or Ship-to-Ship Combat
  • Broadside D&C:  Quests that require the collection of something from certain ships or monsters located only on ships (Defeat and Collect).
  • Instance: Quests that require the completion of a place behind a sigil with at least 2 battles.
  • Interact:  Quests that require interaction with a certain object.
  • Explore: Quests that just require you to run towards a certain area, NPC or item.
