Where to Find?[edit | edit source]
There are two sources for acquiring Pig Crates. A crew can pick up a set amount of Pig Crates from any Merchant Alliance Representative at Outposts if they pick up a Merchant Voyage that requires the delivery of Pigs. The number of Pig Crates is equal to the number of requested Pigs on the Trade Good Ledger.
Mechanics[edit | edit source]
A Pig Crate has no value on its own and cannot be sold back to the Merchant Alliance by itself. The Crates are only valuable when carrying a Pig inside it. Player Crews will have to take the Crate to Islands that spawn Pigs and manually capture the Animals.
A Player Pirate can capture a Pig inside a Crate if they are holding the Crate in hand and are above a Pig. A prompt will appear, indicating that the Pig can be captured inside the Crate, although Pigs are quite quick of their feet and may need some chasing to capture. Once captured, the Pig can then be delivered back to any Merchant Alliance Representatives on Outposts and sold for Gold and Reputation. Note that Pigs need to be fed Fruit every now and then, or they will starve and die. A starving Pig will sit down and start making a whining noise.
On their own, captured Pigs are not worth much Gold and Reputation. However, if a Crew has acquired a Trade Good Commission that requests the delivery of specific Pigs to a specific Outpost in time, completing the Commission will reward players with 10 times as much Gold and Reputation for the Pigs.
Rewards[edit | edit source]
There are four tiers of Pigs, distinguished by their colouring, that can be captured in a Pig Crate.
A Pig is worth 10x more Gold when commissioned through a Merchant Voyage.
|Tier||Pig||Without Commission||With Commission|
|Tier 1||Pink Pig||10-25||100-250|
|Tier 2||Pink and Black Spotted Pig||35-70||350-700|
|Tier 3||Black Coated Pig||75-140||750-1400|
|Tier 4||Gold Striped Pig||155-280||1550-2800|
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Pigs can die inside Crates when they take damage or starve. Try to keep them safe from sources of damage like Cannonball fire, Fire, Weapons or even Poison if you're also transporting Snakes.
- When a Pig dies in a Crate, it leaves behind Uncooked (or Burnt or Cooked when killed by fire) Pork on the floor of the Crate.
- There is currently a bug in the game, which allows players to turn in Trade Good Commissions to virtually any Outpost for increased Gold, not just the Outpost marked on the Ledger. This can be used to sell an unlimited amount of a specific Animal, provided that Players have the Crates to capture the Animals.
