So I went on test shard to give the ship to ship combat a go.. had to use blacksmithy and a whack of ingots and boards to craft cannons... fine. Mount them on ship - fine. then i had to craft a bunch of cannonballs.. ok no problem so far. heres where it gets irritating. i gotta buy powder from an NPC to craft into a different powder(with cooking?).. then i need more powder and cloth to craft charges (with tailoring) then i need swabs and ramrods and matches all crafted with basically every crafting skill in UO. Literally encompasses Blacksmithy, Tailoring, Alchemy, Tinkering, and Cooking. Half way through all this, i threw my hands up in the air and said to hell with it. It just seems like such an insane runaround to arm your ship. Anyone else feel the same way?
