Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Hang onto your toasters my friends because we’re going flying through space and time! The latest event in TSTO has us going wayyy back in time to when Dinosaurs roamed the earth, Pharaohs were building pyramids & Pirates hobbled around on their peg legs!
This Event is broken up into 3 Eras, with each Era containing part of the story. To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act. Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event. For the third (and final) Era, Pirate, you’re tasked with collecting Eye Patches () to unlock each prize!
So let’s take a closer look at this seventh prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…
And you’ll have the option to place the ship in your Springfield or store it in your inventory for later. Remember if you store it you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it (and you won’t get Tachyon credit until you’ve placed it)
Once you place you’ll see the Sexy Pirate Character Unlock Message popup:
And he’s part of the Swashbucklers Character Collection:

And now, because I know some of you will ask me this given how some of you have struggled with this and previous Eras. Is it worth it to spend donuts to get the Sexy Pirate? The answer, as it always is, is how many donuts are we talking?
If you can get the Pirate for 65 donuts or less…absolutely yes. Totally worth it. Character and building, no doubt. If it’s 110-66 donuts, probably. Usually great prices for a character/building combo..but this one isn’t premium. The Sexy Pirate (at least not now) won’t pay out premium, even if you spend donuts on him. So that 110-66 donut mark is a probably…if you like him enough. Anything over 110 donuts, pass. Don’t spend the donuts..he’s just not worth it.
Of course that all being said, continue to play until the last second of the Pirate Era so that you can get that donut cost down as low as possible…BUT if you’re going to spend donuts remember to do so before the timer runs out, because there is no next act to go back and purchase him during.
And there you have it, the details behind the Pirate Ship and the Sexy Pirate the final Time Travel Prize.
