10 Minutes Per Try
Using the above method, you can get through one round of the Pirate Gulliver event in just 10 minutes. If you really want to get all the Pirate-themed items, this is your best bet.
Regular Gulliver Also Spawns
Pirate Gulliver may have joined the ranks, but that doesn't mean old Gulliver is gone - he will still spawn regularly. In fact, we've noticed that regular Gulliver seems to spawn at a slightly higher rate. Pirate Gulliver is somewhat rarer, so consider yourself lucky if you find him.Learn More About Normal Gulliver From Here
Does Not Count Towards Helping Gulliver
By helping out Gulliver 30 times, you'll be able to receive the recipe for the Golden Shovel. However, Gullivarrr is a separate character so helping him out will not count towards that 30 goal for the Golden Shovel.Check Out the Golden Shovel Recipe Here
Gullivarrr Communicator - How to Find
Found At The Bottom Of The Sea
The Communicator for Pirate Gulliver isn't on the beach - it's located deep in the bottom of the sea. You'll need to dive to get it. Its spawn location is random, so you'll have to swim around the island until you find it.
Another important point is that you only need to find one communicator!
Small Shadow Size
Gullivarrr's Communicator has a small shadow and will have a maximum of 3 bubbles coming out of it. If you want to avoid other sea creatures, aim for shadows like this only!
Communicator Doesn't Move
One way to spot the Communicator is to see if the shadow in the water is moving. Even if you approach it, the communicator won't move at all, so make sure to watch out. Aim for shadows and bubbles that don't move!
Doesn't Spawn If Your Inventory Is Full!
The Communicator will simply not spawn if your inventory is full. It's easy to fill up your inventory while diving, so make sure to keep an eye on it and empty it regularly!
Cannot Be Found On Other Islands
You won't be able to find the communicator when visiting other islands. If you want to help out Gullivarrr, you'll need to do it on your own island.Check Out The How To Play Online Guide
Get Rusted Parts The Next Day
After helping out Gullivarrr, you'll find that Rusted Parts will be added to the recycle box in the Resident Services building. These are used for some DIY recipes, so make sure you don't forget them!
Communicators You Don't Return Become Rusted Parts
If you pick up a Communicator but fail to return it to Gullivarrr and then let one day pass, it will transform into a Rusted Part. One Communicator will become five rusted parts!Check Out More Info On Rusted Parts Here
The Wetsuit Is Required
The Wetsuit will be necessary in order to get the Communicator. This item is sold at Nook's Cranny for 3000 Bells. Make sure your game is updated to the latest version if you can't see this item!Check Out More Details On The Wetsuit
Pirate Gulliver (Gullivarrr) - Rewards
Pirate Gulliver and regular Gulliver will give you completely different rewards, so be careful!
Rewards Are Pirate-Related Items
The rewards you get from Pirate Gulliver, unsurprisingly, have to do with pirates! From cannons, to chests, to eyepatches, you can get it all!Check Out A Full List Of Pirate Set Items Here
Reward Arrives The Next Day
Gullivarrr will ship his reward and have it arrive on the day after you help him! Change the time or just wait patiently to get your item!
There Are Color Variations
There are some items in the Pirate Set which have several different color options available! However, the first time you collect this set you won't get any doubles, so it's not possible to get color variations immediately. After you get the full set, however, you'll start getting items from Gullivarrr randomly. These items can be different colors!
