The Skeleton Fleet World event is a brutal encounter. Not only is your pirate vulnerable during the battle, but so is your ship. And as all pirates know, losing your vessel can be devastating.

As the Skeleton Ships can be relentless with their Cursed Cannonballs and rate of fire, smaller crews could often feel the devastation more often than larger crews. Patching holes, bucketing water, shooting Cannonballs, and steering your ship yourself can be challenging!

Thankfully, changes to the Skeleton Fleet World Event in Season Nine will tailor the experience for all crew sizes!

Cursed Cannonball Changes

Skeleton Ships will no longer use Green Cursed Cannonballs and fewer Purple Cursed Cannonballs throughout the battle. With less frequent curses, your crew will spend less time sleeping and more time shooting!

Skeleton Ship

Skeleton Changes

Skeletons aboard Skeleton Ships during the Skeleton Fleet World Event have less health and will repair their ship less frequently. With the Skeleton mending abilities impaired, your crew should sink the Skeleton Ships quicker than before!

Skeleton Ship Changes

The firing rate of the Skeleton Ship Galleons scales to the number of pirates in the battle. So, you can expect the Skeleton Ship Galleon to fire less frequently at a small crew instead of firing more regularly on a large crew.

Skeleton Ship

Battle Changes

The Skeleton Fleet battle area has increased, so expect the Skeleton Ships to chase you for longer stretches.

You’ll also notice that the time between waves has increased, giving you more time to collect treasure and supplies. You’ll need this extra time as Galleon Skeleton Ships now also drop two Storage Crates when sunk!

The number and types of ships you face will scale to the number of pirates participating in the battle. For example, a solo-crewed Sloop will face one Skeleton Ship per wave, a two-crewed Sloop can face two Skeleton Ships per wave, and a Galleon could fight two Skeleton Ship Galleons at once!
