What is Talk Like a Pirate Day?

Shiver me timbers! This coming Sunday (September 19th) is the official International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Or "TLAPD" if ye be one'o dem abbrever-inating scallywags). It is a one-day holiday where we... well, me matey, the name pretty much sums it up. All day long, kindly be talking like Pirates! Created by John Baur & Mark Summers, we have been celebrating it every single year across our video games. An insider secret, our video games were the first to celebrate this holiday... and have done it every year since 2003 when Captain Rhubarb suddenly appeared in-game.

2021 Collection

Th' collection be featurin’ two amazin' piratical sets crafted by our AQ3D artists, as well as a bony bird pet (Marrow), two extra fishin’ rods, and a travel form! Ye will also be obtainin' th' "Stranger Tides" title and badge with yer collection!

Ye can speak to Gunpowder Mary in Battleon (or Lolosia) to unlock this year's collection or grab some booty a'la carte from previous year's collections!

  • Marrow Pet (bird)
  • Snaggletooth travel form (sabertooth)
  • Cannoneer set
  • Shark Hunter Pirate set
  • Life at Sea Fishing Rod
  • Buried at Sea Fishing Rod
  • Badge and Title “Stranger Tides” (only with purchase of Collector’s Chest)

Late Addition: Alpha Pirate Fiend

Get the Alpha Pirate fiend armor set as pieces or a part of the 2021 Talk Like a Pirate Day collection. Woah, woah... wait. Did you already buy the collection? Then... congratulations, you already have it! You will find the entire set has already been added to your collection. This set is also a not-so-secret clue as to AdventureQuest 3D's upcoming new saga.

New quests? In Lolosia AND Yokai?!

That’s right! Go and talk to Requin (the crazy shark lady) to start the quest to find out what happened to the Dread Pirate Roberto. Speak to Blue Bart as well, and begin the hunt for the Cursed Fishing Rod, then try it out! We also added a new fishing location on one of the islands... just watch out for the walking shark… Finally, return to the mysterious island of Yokai and complete The Shiro Special to unlock Master Shiro’s Tsunamurai Shop.


Reach deep into your centre of being and become one with the waves in the Tsunamurai set. Channel the powers of the ocean and show your foes a tsunami of blades! Consult with Master Shiro in The Shadow Of The Wind Village about the "Shiro Special" to start earning the Tsunamurai Set.

Dread Pirate Roberto

The Dread Pirate Roberto was known as a dashing, fashionable rogue of a pirate, and while his manners are inimitable, you can at least dress like him! Talk to Requin to start unlocking the Dread Pirate Roberto’s Set now in the quest "Dreadful Pirate Tale"!


The Upgrade Shop is being visited by Blimey the Pirate Dragon. He's sticking around for the month of September and will climb into your Pet inventory the first time you buy any upgrade package (DragonCrystals or Guardian). If you already bought an upgrade package this month, Blimey will climb into your Pet inventory all by himself.

Coming soon to AQ3D!

Soon, the team will begin the endless chant of “PvP! PvP! PvP!”. PVP on the PTR will soon be open to PC and mobile players (previously just PC). Join the Community PTR Discord for updates.

Also… The epic conclusion to The Sandsea Saga! We hope you’re ready for the fight of your life...


Battle on!
