questions about DLC (on Steam) Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

1) The "Eminent Explorer Pack" includes a Parlour Badge. Is this badge wrapped? (I.e. can it be stored for later use?)

2) Are the "Shadow Fleet" and "Defiant Armada" packs restricted to just those pirates within the corresponding faction? Or can a pirate of the "wrong" faction use the other's special Sloop and Savvy Crossbones Hat?

Thanks, and good luck with the release! ;-)

1) Yes

2) No - anyone is free to purchase and claim the DLCs on any pirate they choose on Obsidian. Only 1 pirate will be able to claim the content per purchase.

Some other useful info might be found on the YPPedia article: https://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/DLC

Interestingly, it looks like you can only buy the Eminent Explorer Pack once per account; attempting to buy it a second time will only allow you to make it a gift for someone else. So you can't stack up all of your alts with unlimited "free" crafting!

I noticed that last night while buying my wife the Pack as a birthday present.

I got a question for yall,
So eminent explorer gives you two permanent badges, labor and officer. You get a discount on trading up badges (officer to SO, labor to bigger labor).
If I do trade up do I A) lose my permanent badge? Or B) get a permanent badge of the one I upgrade to, or more likey C) upgrade to the badge then when it degrades it goes back to the permanent badge of lower quality
All I'm saying is I don't want to have bought a badge that doesn't degrade and then lose it because I upgrade it.

C is correct - you still have the Permanent Officer/Labor badge, and the upgraded version will eventually crumble, returning you to your permanent bottom tier.

A) Do I lose my permanent badge if I upgrade? No
B) If I upgrade a permanent badge, is the upgrade permanent? No, but the cost to upgrade is reduced
C) When the time expires on my upgraded badge, does it revert back to the lower badge? Yes

Edit: Took too long to answer, Nek0jin beat me to it
