  1. How much you ll have to pay to get her, pacific tokens and all?

    1. well you need 24,000 tokens, then 19,300 doubloons
      The tokens you can buy starting at 500 doubloons for 500 tokens, or you can take advantage of the discount for buying a bigger amount of tokens in the armory.
      When the event ends, you can buy her for coal.
