Information based on version Current game version is

You have received a mysterious map from the dying Captain of the ship that brought you to the Caribbean. A former sailor on that ship gives you the first clue as to how you could make sense of that map: a wealthy local man is said to be an expert in these things...

Mission Notes

The first in the line of so-called RP Missions that are your character's personal story. You first have to go to the rich man's house and show him the map. During your talk, you will be interrupted by a pirate attack on the town. Simply exit the house the way you came - you will find yourself in an instanced version of the starting town.

First you have to kill some pirates out in the streets - they should all be somewhere around the docks, or on the way there. Next you have to go to the tavern (check your local map - the entrance might not be where it usually is!) and rescue the barkeep from more pirates. All of these are fairly simple swashbuckling fights against level 5 opponents.

The next step is a sea battle, during which you have to sink the pirate ships (to get there, go to the docks and find a longboat you can click on). This could be a bit more challenging if you are still in your starter ship (as you usually would be, unless you delay doing this mission). You will have to sink three enemy ships, potentially ranging in level from 1 to 5, and with the help of one level 5 ally.

After this is done, you are returned to town, where you can bask in the cheers of the townspeople and exit the instance by talking to your initial mission NPC at the docks. Then, return to that same NPC to claim your reward.
