A crew is a group of pirates that fight, plunder, or sail together. There is strength in numbers and working together, a crew can overcome larger, more numerous enemies, be able to protect and heal one another and share in larger rewards for their efforts and accomplishments.
Crews are fundamental to Pirates of the Caribbean Online, as the game rewards cooperation above all else.
Being in a crew increases a pirate's reputation points they earn. The more pirates in a crew, the higher the bonus. Crew bonus only applies to pirates who are in the same area.

- Three Pirates - +25%
- Four Pirates - +30%
- Five Pirates - +35%
- Six Pirates - +40%
- Seven Pirates - +45%
- Eight to twelve pirates - +50%
Starting A Crew
To create a crew, simply click on another pirate, or their name in your friend list. Then, chose the option Crew or the Mug icon on their profile card.
If the pirate is already in another crew, you will not be able to add them until they drop out of it.
Once a crew is started only the Captain, the pirate who started the crew, has the ability to add new mates.
For pirates searching for a crew to join or members for their own, there is a Looking for Crew option, which will appear above the pirate's head. You can also activate this by typing in /lfc in the chat box.
In The Legend of Pirates Online, when a new pirate arrives aboard ship who is NOT already in a crew, the captain will receive a POP-UP message.
The message tells them who just boarded and asks if they are to be invited into the ship's crew. A quick YES / NO will decide. This message will disappear after about 30 seconds.
When part of a crew, you can communicate with your crewmates directly. In Chat Box, in the lower-left, click on the Crew tab. Now, any text entered will appear in Light Green and only other crewmates can view it.

In The Legend of Pirates Online, the Captain can also choose to promote another crew member to be Captain in their stead.

Click YES. That pirate now becomes Captain.
Rejoining A Crew
For pirates who are accidentally dropped due to technical or communication issues, upon returning to the game, if their original crew is still together, they will be asked if they wish to rejoin their crew.
However, the pirate will NOT automatically relocate to their crew - they will have to teleport themselves.
Note: You must be on the same server to rejoin your crew.
Leaving A Crew
A pirate can leave a crew at anytime by selecting Leave Crew. If the pirate leaving is the pirate who created the crew, the position of Crew Leader is given to another pirate.
Or select the Crew Icon (Mug) in the upper-left. Click to drop out of your crew.
Also, teleporting to another Ocean (Server) will automatically drop a pirate from their crew.
From The Pirates Online Page:
Did you know that being in a CREW gets you special bonuses? It's true! Whether you're fighting a sea battle or against enemies on land, being part of a crew is smart because you get a reputation bonus and it helps you level up faster. Plus, it's just more fun to fight the Undead with other Pirates. That's why we're bringing back...CREW DAYS!
Every Friday and Saturday evening, we encourage all Pirates to get down to the docks of Port Royal, Tortuga or Padres Del Fuego and CREW UP! If you're not asked, start one yourself! Then go pillage and plunder and watch how quickly you can rack up gold, reputation and other loot.
WHEN: 3:00PM to 8:00PM - Every Friday and Saturday, starting June 25
(All times Pacific Standard times/Los Angeles)
WHERE: Docks of Tortuga, Port Royal and Padres Del Fuego
