Great training for level 28-(33?)

Depending on how you have the skill points used (i have 4 skills on every first strike of a combo, which still hits low resulting in good rep if you keep mistiming, except poke and swarm, both should have only 1) and if you're doing your pirate the way I am (no questing outside of the weapons quests until you have maxed weapons, and start black pearl after) tormenta can give you amazing results.

Find a level 35-38 molusk

Use hexeater, and knock down 1/4 of its health with regular pistol shots, DO NOT CHARGE SHOTS.

Pull out the doll, attune (of course, lol), depending on your doll level (mine is 17, almost 18 atm on that pirate) if it is lower than 17, i suggest this:

Use curse everytime it charges back up, even if the molusk is still cursed. If you are 10 doll-13 doll, you can alternate between poke and swarm, but remember, the more curses (the spell it self) you use, the better rep than just using curse regularly like when you let it wear off your enemy and reuse it. If level 14-16, use poke and nothing else, besides curse, remember to use the curse spell as often as possible.

If 15-16:

Do not use swarm, only poke, and use curse the same way as stated above.

If 17+:

Stick with the poke spell only, not using curse. Use the grave chain (whatever its called, lol) often as possible. The curse spell is acceptable to use if the molusk is about to fall down to another fourth of health.

If you've done it in the order i have so far, the molusk should be 1/2 health by now! (shows the energy as being yellow)

Now, it doesn't really matter which weapon you use next or not. Lets just say it is the dagger:

Mistime strikes only (basically just keep click the attack button, not intending to do any combos, just using first strike over and over). Also, use throw dirt as often as possible (i have 3 skill points on it, but that doesn't matter, and long as you use it often as possible) and just keep repeating the first strikes.

After this, the molusk should have 1/4 health! (energy shown as red)

Next, the sword:

Do the same thing, just keep using the first strike. If you have brawl and taunt, use them as often as possible, repeating with the first strikes.

And voila, this results in a dead high level, with high rep for all weapons, and extremely high rep for notoriety!

I started trying this yesterday, and it was resulting in getting rep anywhere from 230 rep- 448 rep per molusk, and getting close to 100+ rep for each weapon, depending on if the molusk is level 35-38 (i also had a 20% crew bonus). The 448 rep is a new personal record from a single enemy for me. Before that it was 240, and it was from a ship. Who knows, you may get higher rep guys, either, I guarentee you will be happy with the results =)

If the molusk is level 34, I suggest just splitting it between 2 weapons, the notoriety won't be as high, but you still get good rep for the two weapons you used. I also suggest this for level 30+ pirates on level 35 molusks.

I hope this helps you guys!

Thanks for reading, and stay Lighthearted
-James

This sounds an awful lot like http://www.piratesonlineforums.com/f...ead.php?t=6926 to me. Great minds think alike, apparently.

The voodoo doll section needs an update.

Not sure how long it has been this way, but healers no longer get ANY rep, unless they attune the enemy AND attack it (e.g. poke or swarm or curse) before switching to another weapon. If you attack during the same attunement, then the heals you do to your wounded allies will then count towards your rep. But if you only heal your allies when they are wounded, you get 0 reputation for doll...even if you switch weapons and attack with, say, cutlass sweep.

No clue what Disney was thinking on that change. Teamwork is supposed to be the backbone of the game...this completely stymies almost all teamwork strategies.

This was the biggest help for me when I was mastering all my weapons. This guide and General Darkheart did the trick!

This is an excellent guide, helps if nothing more to explain the mechanics of the game, and how rep is calculated.

Noted this comment now from a few months ago. This is no longer the case, and must have been a temporary oversight on POTCOs part, as I get rep for healing all the time now as we always had before.

I'm a believer! I used this to great effect on Twisted Stumps on Outcast while making the final push to level 30. Much to my delight I spawned a level 38 stump. It's a very good thing I had 2 stellar healers. It took me, as a 29, somewhere between 5 and 10 minutes to kill. At the time I never paid attention to just how much rep I got. I only knew it was enough. Going back to crop the picture to post here I got a major shock.



Not only did I hit level 30, but take a look at the rep on that thing! 615 after a 123 point crew bonus? Even without said bonus it was a shocking 492 rep. Can you imagine if I'd done that with a 50% crew bonus? It woulda been something like 748 rep!

Yes people, this method really does work! Thanks so much again for posting this. (Those two days I turned 30 and was working my staff quest? I plowed through an insane 40,000+ rep. Yes, I'm serious, and I did it using this.)



And yes, my healers did get rep too, in fact one of them mentioned getting well over 100 rep for just this one kill.

Yes, many have used these methods to score that much and more rep. With a 50% crew bonus you can earn up to 900 reps on one enemy (all weapons but cannon/sailing), if you can get in enough attacks. Seen many screens showing these huge rep rewards. Old tricks being learned by new pirates.. good stuff.

Well after the recent updates to POTCO , I noticed this rep guide hasn't been working.
I was in the catacombs grenading a yellow raider and killed him with 2 explosives ,
expecting tp get 7 rep , but instead I got 17 rep?
Some reason for this? I didn't have a double rep award just regular fighting.
