Start point Quest point icon Talk to Bill Teach in the Port Phasmatys Inn.
Official difficulty Experienced
Description It's war on the high seas as Bill Teach tries to make the journey from Port Phasmatys to the pirate enclave of Mos Le'Harmless!

With his crew heading for the hills, he's looking to recruit anyone eager to become a pirate to help him sink the enemy before he ends up swimming home. He's offering a lot more than a shilling to join his crew. Have you got what it takes to be a pirate?

Length Medium (15-20 minutes, depending on RNG)
Items required You don't need to bring any items yourself. However, make sure that you have at least 11 open inventory spaces for items you will obtain during the quest. A higher amount like 14 open spaces is recommended however.
Enemies to defeat


Setting sail

  • Travel to Port Phasmatys (Take a charter ship if you have no Ectophial).
  • Talk to Bill in the inn. (Chat 11)
  • Run to the dock, board the eastern-most ship.
  • Talk to Bill. (Chat 1)


  • Open the repair locker, take 4 ropes.
  • Open the gun locker, take 1 fuse.
  • Take the tinderbox spawn at the south end of the ship
  • Climb the ladder, then climb the net next to the mast.
  • Use rope on the sail.
  • Use the fuse on their powder barrel.
  • Light the fuse (this can fail).
  • Climb their mast and use a rope on the sail.
  • Talk to Bill.

Fixing the leaks

  • Descend the ladder.
  • Take from the repair locker:
    • 6 planks.
    • A hammer
    • 30 tacks.
    • 3 swamp paste.
  • Repair the leaky holes and waterproof them.
  • Talk to Bill.

Pirate plunder

  • Swing back over to the enemy ship.
  • Climb down their ladder.
  • Gather 10 plunder by:
    • Plunder their chest,
    • Ransack their barrel,
    • Loot their crate,
    • Hop worlds to collect more Plunder quickly.
  • Swing across with the plunder and deposit it in the chest on the lower deck.
  • Talk to Bill.


  • Search the gun locker, take a cannon barrel.
  • Repair the broken cannon on the top deck.
  • Talk to Bill.
  • Search the gun locker, take a ramrod, a few fuses, and some cannon canisters.
  • Take some powder from the barrel next to the cannon.
    • Use gunpowder on the cannon.
    • Then the ramrod.
    • Then the canister.
    • Then a fuse.
    • Fire the cannon! (Make sure pirates line up with your cannon before firing)
    • Use the ramrod on the cannon again to clean it.
    • Talk to Bill

The sequence goes:

  1. Right Click-Empty out Cannon
  2. Ramrod to clean
  3. Add powder
  4. Ramrod the powder down
  5. Cannon Ball
  6. Fuse
  7. Fire
  • Repeat until 3 pirates die (OR until you run out of cannon canisters in your inventory, and when you try to take more it will say "you do not need a canister round right now" move on to the next step: Talk to Bill).
    • Note: It may be faster to intentionally run out of canisters.
  • Talk to Bill
  • Search the gun locker, take several cannon balls, fuses, gunpowders and cannon barrels.
  • Fire the cannon with cannonballs until you put three holes in the enemy's ship. This is done with the same sequence above except instead of a canister, a cannonball is used instead - you will likely have to fire it more than three times and possibly repair it multiple times.
  • Quest complete!

Note: Talk to Bill Teach in the pub afterwards to get your share of the loot, 10,000 gp.
