    I find when I am at the sea market, various npcs will state their coordinates, or my tillerman will! Lately, for pacific in fel its around Jhelhom.

    My question is, I found the pirates, killed all the orcs..but couldnt capture the pirate or kill him (with archery) so I guess I will have to get those cannons done, then I guess you have to take the ship down? :stretcher:

    Yep!

    First you have to kill the crew, then you have to beat down the ship. Then you can use the rope on pirate ship to enter it - and you can start beating on the pirate.

    Its a hard thing to solo, as the pirate shoots your ship faster than you shoot his. So, you might want to get 1-2 friends along as your crew on a gargoyle ship, so they can help fire cannons.

    When pirate is almost dead, you can use rope to tie him down for to hand him in.

    Thanks Mandrake. I finally had my cannons yesterday and tried to solo, but you are right they do shoot very fast! (even using a Garg ship!) Thanks for the info. :)

    I think you say "Say, “start tracking” to begin tracking ships for one minute"
