2. Boss Spawn Timing System
First of all You need to know the Spawn system works:
-Every week after maintenance Boss times are reset.
-The first BOSS times is the key of all the other bosses times in the rest of the Week.*
YOU MUST KNOW THE TIME WHEN THE SERVER RETURNED ONLINE AFTER MAINTENANCE
Our Boss hunting Adventure begins after Maintenance
12 hours after the Maintenance You must be outside Stockholm waiting for Gotheborg Honorable Level Frigate this is the first boss that spawn after Maintenance and the key of everything. The spawning time of this boss is between 1 minute to 3 hours, is Random
After you get the Exact Time of the Gotheborg Honorable Level Frigate. The rest of bosses will have it FIRST spawn at this times:
- John Hawkins : 4 hours and 20 minutes (100% exact time) AFTER the First Gotheburg Frigate time.
- Bartholomeus Roberts : 6 hours and 10 minutes (not 100% exact time) AFTER the First Gotheburg Frigate time.
- Gotheborg Honorable Level Frigate : 6 hours and 55 minutes
- Glory Level Frigate: Some say its 6 hours and 55 minutes but I believe its totally Random.
- General Charley Will : 13 hours and 50 minutes AFTER the First Gotheburg Frigate time.
- General Cruz : 25 hours ( some say its 25hours but its 24hours and 56 minutes) AFTER the First Gotheburg Frigate time.
Ok This is the first time of spawn of every Boss now
SECOND SPAWN OF EVERY BOSS WILL BE THE SAME THE REST OF THE WEEK.:
- John Hawkins : 9 hours and 04 minutes
- Bartholomeus Roberts : 10 hours and 04 minutes
- Gotheborg Honorable Level Frigate : 6 hours and 55 minutes
- Glory Level Frigate: Some say its 6 hours and 55 minutes but I beleive is totally Random.
- General Charly Will : 13 hours and 50 minutes
- General Cruz : 19hours and 20 minutes
OK this is all you need to know about the spawn times, if you still dont understand this i will put two examples:
Maintenance ENDS -> 12 hours -> between 1 minute-3hours --> First Gotheburg spawn --> 4 hours and 20 minutes --> First hawkins spawn --> 9 hours and 4 minutes --> Second hawkins spawn --> 9hours and 4 minutes --> Third Hawkins Spawn --- > Repeat all the week
Maintenance ENDS -> 12 hours -> between 1 minute-3hours --> First Gotheburg spawn --> 24hours and 56 minutes --> First General Cruz Spawn --> 19 hours and 20 minutes --> Second General Cruz Spawn --> 19 hours and 20 minutes --> Third General Cruz Spawn ---> Repeat all the week
3. Boss Spawn Time Calculator
Calculator made by: Flauschus
This Excel File calculates all Boss Spawn Times from first Goteborg Spawn Time ongoing for the Rest of the Week. You only need to know when the Goteborg Ship spawned the first Time and the Boss Times will be calculated automatically!
If you missed the first Spawn and got no Idea when this Spawn was you can change to Tab2 of this Excel File and calculate all Pirate Boss Times other ways. You need to know only one Spawn time of that Boss and the Calculation begins.
Also Included is Information of the new HS Bosses and a Map with all Spawn Places!
- Microsoft Excel 2003 or Software working with *.xls Files (or higher)
- Best view with 1280x1024 px (or higher)
- The Spawn Time of any Boss or better the first Spawn Time of Gotheborg Frigate

4. Individual Boss Strategies
This Boss is Hard and you must not make any mistakes while figthing or you might have serious trouble, I recommend you try this Boss before trying Charly Will. Once you Board this boss, you must run and attack him, while fighting he will start spawning sharpooters on you, you must always attack hawkins and not attack any sharpooters.. You must be drinking low level pots all the time during the fight, also you must save the armor, helm and falchion skills to the last part of the fight or when you start losing much HP (50%), I would day when he hits like 30%-40% of his HP. I suggest you be all the fight spamming hp pots, and IM heals if needed. I suggest you Equip charm before boarding him
Really hard to know the Location and the direction he sails, John Hawkins can Spawn in Luanda and in the highsea in this locations ( the ones i know) : 577 156 near dakar, 660 -74 near Madeira, -100 998(988 sorry forgot) near cape town, I have seen John hawkins in Cape Town, also people said he sails to Accra too
This is when bosses start getting a little harder, but with the "must have" equipment you must not have any problem at all,Black Bart have a Pet, which I suggest kill first before attacking black bart since this dog kills fast your sailors, then go attack Black Bart. I suggest you use Armor and Weapon skills before you board him, this way your sailors are stronger and you lose less sailors.
He can Spawn in London - Lisbon - Madeira - Cape Town also this mysterious boss sometimes spawn outside London and sail to it then return, and sometimes spawn outside london and magically teleport to cape town , Also he spawn in a place between Lisbon and London in the High Seas ( I beleive)
Goteborg Honorable Level Frigate
This Boss is also a "piece of cake" but is a bit annoying he uses Guns and runs a lot, you must no have any problem at all , I suggest you use Armor and Weapon skills before you board him, this way your sailors are stronger and you lose less sailors.
Always Spawn in Stockholm then sails Oslo-London-Lisbon and Return
Some People says this Frigate also Sails to Reikjavik , I honestly never seen it myself.
Glory Level Frigate
This is the easiest boss of all , which the "must have stuff" you must not have any problem at all, I suggest you use Armor and Weapon skills before you board him, this way your sailors are stronger and you lose less sailors. Always Attack directly the Boss, dont lose time with the sailors
Location Spawn is Random and it can be in Suez, Aden , Bombay and I believe Muscat too
General Charley Will
This is the Hardest Boss, ATLEAST you "must have" ALL the recommended equipment or BETTER to kill him, any mistake while fighting him can result in a very Quick Death . Before Boarding him, you must Equip an IM charm. Since the Begining of the Fight you must SPAM the hp pots and IM heal ( First aid kit) like Crazy, You also have to Check the Normal chat once you see a red message saying " He goes in Rage" You must use your armor ( always use it first), helm and falchion skills and continue healing till the End of the fight. This boss is hard to kill at the first times, you need some good stats, so if you die, just try harder.. his drops are worth the try ... If you see all yours sailors are killed better to open the dropped safes and magic boxes quickly, because you might die once you are back in the sea.
He spawns on the line of London to Cuba
This Boss Might look much easier than John Hawkins but he is very Dangerous, sometimes he can do consecutives critical hits of 1.5k hp - 3.5k hp but its Rare. You must use your Armor, helm and falchion skill in the last part of the fight or when you start losing too much HP Â´(50% hp) I suggest you be all the fight spamming hp pots, and IM heals if needed. I suggest you Equip Charm before Boarding him.
He Spawns and sails in the Line of Seville-Tortuga ( the city near tortuga where merchants sail), sometimes he doesnt return to Seville City, he stops in the High sea near seville city and returns to Tortuga.
