Castleville Guide: A Tale of Two Pirates Quest

A Tale of Two Pirates (12 Missions)
Available at Level 13 or Above
Where there's a pirate ship, there's treasure. This is the plot for this pirate's quest line from Sonja. It starts in the Land's End, and we get there by visiting your new neighbor Jacques (new character). There is a shipwreck that needs repair. She's been ravaged by a Gloom Storm and Jacques cannot repair it on his own. She is loaded with treasure that Jacques is willing to share as compensation. 

Let's help him? Check below how!!!
Totem (left) and Hub (right)
The Lightning Hubs have different colors, that you will have to disable them in order to deactivate the  Elemental Totem. 1) Click on ALL HUBS and then 2) you can destroy the TOTEM. In some way this reminds me the Beacons in the Unicorns Theme.
This quest is not timed. However, Land's End will go away 5 days after you receive the "Thar Be Treasure" Quest Line.

Tidal Pools will be available in the market (click on the image to see it), after you complete the quest 2. So, you can place one in your own kingdom. Use it for getting more Creamy Clam Chowder crafted and gain more energy (through the Distiller on Land's End).
Rewards from fishing in the Tidal Pools
