Captains are one of the most important aspects of Pirate Clan. Not only is the game more fun with friends, but they directly affect how powerful you are in Battles.

When you enter a Battle, your Captains automatically contribute to your fight strength by each bringing in ten Mateys, ten Weapons, and one Ship. If you have more of these than can be taken into battle by your Captains, your most powerful items are selected depending on whether you are attacking or defending.

To balance the game, your Clans' effectiveness is limited by your level, but the higher your level the more Captains will make a difference when Battling your rivals. To start, you may add 500 friends as Captains and get up to 500 Captains for Hire from Davy Jones. After level 75, every subsequent level up will increase your max Hired and Recruited Captains by 2. The maximum cap is set at 1000 friends and 1000 Hired Captains.

Inner Circle
Reward your closest friends by adding them to your Inner Circle! Every time you gain Gold from Battles, Adventures, or Bounties your Inner Circle Captains receive bonus gold equal to a small percentage of your earnings.

Encourage your Captains to add you into their Inner Circles as well and team up to grow your Hoard!

Don't forget to check your Inner Circle page regularly, as uncollected earnings expire after 3 days.

Elite Captains
Enhance your gameplay by filling the Elite Captain positions on your Profile.

Pirates who sign up for an Elite position grant you a special perk for 48 hours, such as a bonus to Adventure earnings, Experience, or even Battle power!

You can publish vacant Elite Captain positions to your friends once every hour!

Show your Captains how much you appreciate them by sending a gift! Gifts are fun to get, and can be used by your Blacksmith to help craft new and better weapons, ships, and mateys.
You can send over 500 gifts a day. The more gifts you send the higher the chances your friends will send a gift back!

Create a Gift Wishlist so your Captains will know what you're looking for, or post a Gift Request to your feed!

Fight Boosts
Send an offer of Rum Boosts to all your Captains! Rum gives everyone in your Clan an increase to Attack for a limited time.

Check your Captain Alerts to see boosts that have been offered to you.
An Energy Boost gives a member of your Inner Circle a 100% refill of their Energy points.
A Stamina Boost gives a member of your Inner Circle a 75% refill of their Stamina points.

Hired Captains
Looking for a quick addition to your Clan's power? Spend Favor Points with Davy Jones for Hired Captains. These salty sea mercenaries won't send gifts or help you in challenges, but they will expand your capacity to bring ships, mateys and weapons into battle.
