Essentially, Treasure Aisle is our in-game store. There players can buy Account Upgrades, Clothing, Consumables, Missions, Pets, and Ships. Players simply trade Burning Sea Points for items, and unlike specific Auction Houses, players can access Treasure Aisle from anywhere in-game.
Featured Items are items that we are currently showing off. These items give players an idea of what Treasure Aisle offers. To buy a Featured Item, simply click the item, and confirm your purchase.
Account Upgrades are items that are available to players with Free Accounts. Premium or Captain's Club Accounts already include these upgrades. Our Play for Free page describes the differences between Free, Premium, and Captain's Club Accounts.
Players can purchase the following upgrades:
Initially, players with Free Accounts can have up to two characters per Nation. If players want more characters per Nation, then they can purchase more Character Slots from Treasure Aisle.
Initially, players with Free Accounts have two ships per character. If players want more ships per character, then they can purchase more Dockyard Slots from Treasure Aisle.
Ship Storage Slots
In addition to Dockyard Slots, players can purchase Ship Storage. Ship Storage allows players to store up to 100 ships in their Nation's capital.
Initially, players with Free Accounts have two Economy Slots (per account). Economy Slots are also commonly known as Structure Slots. If players want more Economy Slots, then they can purchase these slots from the Treasure Aisle.
Initially, players with Free Accounts do not have Ship Insurance. Ship Insurance is just what in sounds like. When players with Insurance sink in a ship, they receive doubloons as compensation. The amount of doubloons depends on the exact Outfitting and ship, but this cost should be roughly equal to the Production Cost of the sunk Outfitting and ship.
Treasure Aisle also has a variety of Clothing available for purchase. Some Clothing is available only to male or female characters, respectively. However, most of the Clothing is available to both genders.
Players purchase Clothing as they would any other item, but once purchased, Clothing will not show up in the Inventory.
To view new Clothing, follow these steps:
Consumables are items that players can use only once. Generally, these items are stored in the Personal or Special Inventory. Also, players can often purchase these items in bulk for a discount.
Treasure Aisle sells a variety of Consumables, but here are some of those items:
Commissions are NPC allies. Players may use these allies during any Mission; although, players cannot use Commissions during PvP.
Commissions fight more intelligently than the typical NPC ally. Also, each Commission has a slightly different style of fighting, so we recommend that players read the tooltip descriptions of each Commission (in Treasure Aisle, move your mouse over the Commission).
Initially, the Commission tab has a limited number of Commissions available, but as players complete missions and progress through the game, more Commissions will become available.
For example, below is a description of a Commission:
The Mission category of Treasure Aisle contains missions that players may purchase and play.
Once players purchase a mission, depending on the mission, they may access their mission in one of two ways:
Treasure Aisle not only makes getting Shoulder Pets easier than ever, but Treasure Aisle also offers a new type of pet: Follow Pets. Each character has two available Pet Slots: Follower and Shoulder. This means that characters may have both a Follow Pet and Shoulder Pet equipped.
To equip a pet, open your Personal Inventory (press I and then click on the Personal tab). Right-click the pet you want to equip and select Equip.
Follow Pets are pets that walk along next to your character. Unlike Shoulder Pets, Follow Pets can do tricks.
Follow pets can do each do two tricks:
Shoulder pets are pets that sit on your shoulder. Players can purchase a variety of animals; for example, Parrots, Cockatoos, Iguanas, and Rats.
Treasure Aisle also offers a variety of ships and items for your ships. While there are other ways of getting a new ship, Treasure Aisle offers one of the fastest and easiest ways.
Players can buy Bundles of ship related items. These Bundles include several items—most commonly Outfitting, repairs, and Gunpowder. The exact Outfitting, etc. depends on the type of Bundle.
To see more about a specific Bundle, move your mouse over the Bundle and a tooltip with more information will appear.
Refits allow you to obtain different ships for your Ship Deeds. Simply purchase the Refit corresponding the Ship Deed you want to trade in, and take these two items to your Nation's capital. Here you can trade these items in for a new ship.
For example, follow these steps as a Naval Officer to trade in a Refit: 'Conquistador' Frigate:
Simply purchase the Ship Deed from Treasure Aisle and it will appear in your Ship Hold. To exchange that Deed for a ship, right-click the Deed and select Trade this Deed in for a ship.
Writs along with their corresponding Uncertified Deed are traded for ships in your Nation's capital.
Uncertified Deeds can be created through various Production Lines in the Economy.
Buying Items from Treasure Aisle is simple. If you have enough Burning Sea Points, simply select the item you want to buy, and then click Buy Now!
If you do not have enough Burning Sea Points, you will need exchange Burning Sea Notes for Points. We describe these details in the Notes vs. Points section.
When you buy items from the Treasure Aisle, the items may appear in your Inventory.
The Ship Hold tab represents the items on your ship. If you switch ships, you will see a different inventory. Some of the items you buy from Treasure Aisle will end up in your Ship Hold—these items include Ship Deeds and Shipwright Materials (e.g., Refits and Writs).
The Personal tab represents the items on your character. You will keep these items in your Inventory regardless of whether you switch ships or sink. Some of the items you buy from Treasure Aisle will end up in your Personal Inventory—these items include Books (e.g., Bonus Doubloon Book, Bonus Experience Book, Bonus Faction Book), Follow Pets, and Shoulder Pets.
The Special tab works similarly to the Personal Inventory. You will keep these items in your Inventory regardless of whether you switch ships or sink. Certain items you buy from Treasure Aisle will end up in your Special Inventory—these items include Consumable items (e.g., Evade Aggression Trinket, Gunpowder, Keg of Rum, Structural Brace, Society Charter), Structure Deeds (e.g., Warehouse Deed), Commissioned Allies, and more.
While you can often trade for Burning Sea Notes in the Auction House, you may want to simply buy Notes from Treasure Aisle. This approach can be much simpler than using the Auction House.
To buy Notes, simply open Treasure Aisle (press T), and click the Buy Notes button in the left corner. Here you will see Notes for sale in different ammounts. You can spend less per Note by buying more Notes at once.
If you already have a payment source associated with your account, then you will only need that source's security code. Otherwise, you will need to enter a payment source.
Although, once you have bought the Note, you must trade it in for Burning Sea Points in order to buy items.
Notes vs. Points
Each Note is worth several hundred Burning Sea Points (find the exact amount in-game). You use Burning Sea Points to buy items in Treasure Aisle. So, before you can buy an item in Treasure Aisle you will need to trade in your Notes.
Entering a Payment Source
If you do not already have a Payment Source setup, to enter a Payment Source follow these steps:
