Ghost Captain[edit | edit source]

One round of the poison is applied immediately which is why you'll see the counter on the effect set to 2 rounds.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Get multiple Magic Carpet by getting voyagers's compass to level 20 and resetting it in commanders cabin. each time it gets to level 20 it gives Barbosa tresure which contains a magic carpet. (My best run i got 4 carpets)
  • Where to find the eight ship pieces:
    • Dragon Carronade: Possibly from the shop, can take a really long time to appear. 
    • Goblin's Device: Search a Sailor's remains
    • Golden Caisson: Found on corpse
    • Siren Figurehead: Use 3 or 4 Ghost Crystals in a cave with a ship wreck, and defeat the ghost that appears 
    • Kraken's Tusk: Have the Ghost ship finish off a boss
    • Voyagers's Compass: Cave with a shipwreck
    • Siren's horn: Smelt a level 6 item
    • Royal Telescope: Pay the Ghost Captain at least 12 Ghost Crystals (He takes all, I had 12 at the time) 
  • Cactus' damage reflection is deactivated when Timestill is ongoing (getting an Eternal Suit with the help of Ares' Note and the furnace can help)
  • Only using Ghost Ship...: Means that only the Ghost Ship can do damage. You can still use spells like Disrupting Ray or Hex (but not Icicle)
  • Steal on the boss (e.g. Magician Hand) provides Recovering Spell Scrolls (1-2)
