    On Tram Atlantic it is/was impossible for me to get to the floating city to initiate the pirate quest.

    Lanes need to be made free of boats I would say North South East And West of boats just like the are inside the bouyes.

    2 Orc boat widths and Over 500 Tiles long.

    If oyu leave a boat in these areas it is moved out so other prople can get in AND out.

    Also the fish mongers are going to get congested really fast.

    Implement the same Bouey system and one chaneel running out from those docks. It is going to be almost impossible to start or finish some of these quests if somthing isnt done and soon.

    I don't have a problem with any of the docks except the floating city as a rune can't be marked there and you have to personally dock. Either make a permanent path in or allow runes to be marked. I spend on average 10+ mins maneuvering the area looking for a path in and getting many dead ends.

    I leave my ship outside the buoys and then use my rowboat to go to the Seamarket. :)

    There really isn't a problem with the way the docks and the Sea Market were built. Leave your big ship outside the buoys and use a rowboat. I don't believe you if you say that there isn't a way to reach the Sea Market. Also, 2 weeks from now you will find much less ships there when the novelty has paled.

    About all the other docks: You don't have to park your boat directly by those docks in order to do the fishmonger quests. When do people finally understand this?

    The developers should leave it as it is and concentrate on more important issues.

    maybe some people should read a post before posting

    so are you going to hunt priateswith your rowboat or what???? you get the pole only when your ship is near to the questgiver.

    and yes there is a problem! if you reach the market easily on your shard then it doesnt mean you reach it on every shard the same way

    Other shards may not be having a problem, but on Atlantic, we could not even get a row-boat to the fish-market last night - though we tried repeated paths for over an hour. We paid the same price for the expansion as you did and should be able to enjoy the content now while everyone else is.

    Perhaps the code can be changed to allow fishing quests to be taken whenever the boat is in the water.. regardless of how close it is to the docks?

    Maybe you should think about what was actually posted. If your ship is close enough to the bouys, and you take your rowboat in, then the pole you are supposed to get will be placed on your ship.

    I would love to see buoys near the city docks, 20 minute timer for them would be great.

    Maybe also safe boat "parking zone" so people can stow their boats at night without fear of pirates destroying them?


    It is a problem on Atlantic. I also have trouble even getting a rowboat to the Sea Emporium. I would love to see the 20 minute zone enlarged.


    There's really no need to be rude here.

    First off lets just get all the ships (large & small) that are blocking entrances in and out taken out to sea if noone is on or moves them with-in a 15 min barrier.
    Some people I call idiots, park their ship right near docks and just let them sit there for hrs and sometimes days.

    I would love to see involvement of GM's in the game taking care of this but I guess we don't have any of those at all.
    The only person that I see in game is Messana, and I must say she does one hell of a job to help when ever possible. Keep up the excellent work.

    I don't know why they put in this Sea Market in the first place. Spread thing out and use every port.

    Way back when the GM's would move boats out of the way when a port was so congested. Infact in T2A some very hot spots where boats were always blocking the GM's Posted signs that any left over night would be subject to bing moved and if sighted again would be sunk! Perhaps a system of traffic tickets can be added to a boat menu .. so many and you can get sunk! hehe

    I like the idea of creating shipping lanes in and out. You rarely can get to the Market on Atlantic anymore.
