First, the list of complaints 1. Make the cannons easier to fire! Right now they're like solving a puzzle on a chest in khaldun. I can understand they should take some time but maybe If i have all the tools/powder/etc... in my pack I could just prime...wait..and fire ? (the sheer number of things you have to craft per shot is pretty ridiculous as well) 2. saltpeter is nearly impossible to get right now, and it takes far too much to craft the various parts to fire a single shot. (clearing out the vendor i get enough to make a match and a powder charge.....) 3. steering wheel on the tokuno ship on classic client is in a really weird spot, you have to steer from in front of a wheel....I guess I'm just really limber and can reach behind me to turn it. 4. there's no sheep on the sea market and no spinning wheel either, so you can't craft match cords/fuses while there 5. Prices are ridiculously high , right now it costs a few k gold per shot even for light cannonballs. For a grand reward of 10k per pirate minus repairs there's no point to doing the new quests. 6. Players without expansion can't even ride on the new ships as passengers...this effectively means they have to be dry docked and old ships brought out during guild functions. (cant much sail out to terra sanctum if half the players cant get on the boat) 7. you can't dock rowboats while onboard a ship, makes them a bit pointless to use, at 20k per I don't like the thought of abandoning it every time I use one. And now some questions. I came in on the last few days of the beta and didn't have time to test these, and all other sources are not clear about it. 1. Can your ship ever be completely destroyed by npc's or other players? This is an important question to me as the 450k I spent on it is a non trivial sum. (this is on siege, with an economy basically 1/10 of Atl, so that would be equiv nearly 4.5 mil on atl) 2. When moored with nobody onboard, (such as docking my ship in bucs den or britain to log out for the day) can other players damage my ship? I would really like to not have to completely empty all my equipment out of my hold and dry dock my ship, then bring everything back the next time i want to sail.
