Global missions. Idols
Global Missions are special quests which allow you to cooperate with other Captains to complete global objectives.
Participation is optional, however the outcome of each Global Mission can alter the game storyline, result in permanent changes to the Seven Seas, and unlock rewards or new game features for participating players.
Participation in Global Missions will usually require Captains to take on dangerous adventures collecting as many Mission items as possible by attacking or defending Prizes. After Captains attack or defend a Prize, the Mission items you've collected will be transferred to the Brethern Court.
All Global Missions are voluntary, but if successful, all participating Captains will be rewarded in proportion to their contribution.
All Captains are divided into Classes to their respective Level:
Your reward from Global Missions depends on which Class you belong to when you engage in the Mission.
Thus, even novice players who occupy the top positions in their Class can received large rewards - not just the old salty Captains. You and your fellow Captains are divided into Classes before each Global Mission, and you will remain locked in that Class bracket for its duration, even if you rise a level up during the mission.
