Arriving in Pravoka, you notice the town is almost deserted.
Talk of the Town
Sure, mind telling us what's wrong?
Oh, okay. Better get prepaired to deal with them.
Local Commerce in Action
Like Coneria, Pravoka's inn is still pretty cheap. Come back if you're close. Definitely come here before you meet the pirates.
From here on, clinics get expensive. This one costs twice as much as the Coneria one.
I usually don't get any level 2 magic at this point. Consequently, I don't remember to do so by the time I actually need it. Anywho INVS may be useful now, but you'll definitely want ALIT later. MUTE is useful. Buy it for everyone who can learn it.
None of these spells are especially important. A Black Mage should get ICE but a Red Mage should save space for more important white spells. SLOW might be good to have tho.
Time to upgrade your weapons. Fighters should get a Short Sword or Hand Axe, Red Mages should get a Short Sword, and Thieves should get a Scimitar.
Mmmm, armor. Some fine pieces available in the Pravoka Collection. Everyone should get Gloves. A Fighter should pick up a Wooden Shield and Iron Armor if you can afford it.
Get yourself enough HEAL and PURE potions. Maybe about 10 HEAL now, and 5 PURE. Take more if you plan to wander very far. You'll notice a new item on the list: CABIN. You may remember finding one in the Temple of Fiends. It is like a TENT but better.
Arr, Bikke and his mates are the ones causing trouble here. We scurvy dogs need to put a stop to their evil badness.
Uh oh, a boss fight! Oh wait, pirates are freaking easy to beat. Sporting the lowest HP of anything, they go down quick, but if they gang up on somebody they can be trouble. Make sure someone's ready with a CURE spell or HEAL potion if someone's is hurt. Other than that just spread out your attacks and you'll have no problem. With the right party you can actually beat them at level 1.
Upon beating the pirates you'll see that Bikke is still in town. Defeated, he will give you his ship. When this happens the townsfolk return.
He won't be anymore bother, he promises. Of course the word of a pirate is always to be believed.
Sleeping prince, eh? Hmm, perhaps if I found her crystal she'd give me some HERB.
Yes, well, a cash reward would be nice.
Thanks buddy, I'll keep that in mind.
Well that's a pretty stupid idea, I wonder how I'll be able to get to the north.
Well, I'll give it a shot. It's my job, right?
Just tell me where to find some hookers and we'll call it even.
With the pirates defeated and a ship at your command, a lot of options are open to you. You can take the ship to the Dwarf Cave, Elfland, or Coneria. You could also visit the dangerous region east of Pravoka.
