The Gilded Galapagos

Talk Like a Pirate Day Quest 2018

The legend of The Gilded Galapagos has resurfaced in Rune Midgard, and you're about to join the fun! Long ago, a notorious pirate crew called The Gilded Galapagos held 5 legendary maps that were rumored to lead to treasures guarded by fearsome monsters of the deep. A few mysterious pirate ships have sailed into Alberta bringing news of these legendary maps and the treasures they hide. Will you rise to the occasion and complete the tasks needed to reach these treasures? Then set sail on this brand new adventure with you and your crew!

The Journey Begins

Starting Location: Alberta (189, 164)
Starting NPC: William Rotator
Required Level: 55

Start your pirate adventure by speaking to William Rotator down by the Alberta docks. He'll enlighten you with the tale of Shoelace Sean and his cursed ship The Soaring Phantom, as well as the legend of the Gilded Galapagos and their treasure maps. With the premise set, you're ready to begin your quest!

  • Undead Servant's Map Piece
Once you collect all 4 pieces of at least one map, you may return to William Rotator to set sail on your next adventure!
