    Has anyone noticed the new ships are decaying at odd rates...?
    On Origin:
    My son has 2 ships he placed at the same time on his 2 fishers. All seemed fine for a few months he or I would refresh it every other day (I do it when I feed the fish, it seems to be best or so I thought).

    That was till last month, his ship "The BLack Pearl" disapeared. We tried the dock master, his runes and mine, we even went to the only location you cant recall to on trammel to see if some skallywag got on for a joy ride.
    Nope no sign... then it dawns on me to have him try to replace a small boat in the water to test if infact its poofed..... sure enough he put in his old ship on the water.
    OK
    A week went by and he decided to get a new "Pearl".

    All has been fine as we both make sure that the ships are refreshed every other day without fail. Now this should be fine ..... right?
    Wrong.
    The new "Pearl" disapeared and we were on it the day before fishing up sos's! We skiped the whole checking of things and went strait to dropping another boat in to check.
    The old style ship went in fine..... another HS ship poofed! Now I dont mind the gold for a new ship, but the having to abandon the quests we had going is quite a bit of downgrade when it comes to getting back the better quests the next time.

    IS anyone getting this too??

    I have never had this happen to an old style ship.... just these HS ships.

    I have two High Seas ships and one Legacy ship that stay in the water all the time.. Can't dock my fishermans boats cause of the quest crates as you all know.

    And the other one is my Pirate killing ship so it stays moored in the bay by my house.

    I refresh all three at least every three days and haven't had any problems since the day i bought them.

    All my other ships are drydocked until i need them..

    I had a fishing ship and never once had a problem with it... went on for months and months without a problem. Then one day I was out fishing up some Quests and such and I'd just used the Serpent Pillar and was called away... left my boat not far from there. Come back the next day and my boat is GONE.

    Same as you I tried everything I could think of... even took out another boat on another account and searched high and low but nothing...

    My rune turned blank... which was odd.

    After that I've never left ANYTHING in the hold I didn't think I'd really want.

    But I've not had the problem since. But who knows could be months again before it happens.

    Sometimes I wonder if a GM gets called because you are blocking something or someone moves your ship to block something and the GM deletes your boat. That's my "guess" as to what happens. Someone pages and the GM deletes it. But I don't know.

    Not sure what other explanation there could be though... I mean why would a ship be fine for months and months without a problem and then "poof" vanish?

    Now I've had folk doing the quest for Corgul park their boat a bit too close to the mark between the map and the world and they couldn't recall back to their boat because it was IN the Corgul area... Not sure if one of those spawns where your boat is if that would "delete" your boat or not???? But it is a thought.

    The funny thing is this is the 2nd time his "PEARL" has poofed.

    I keep a tight reign on the ships and other things needing refresh, food , or watering... The ship had quite a few quests in the hold and that was all. As for the ship hopping my son sets the boat to just friends which is me only. Sooo it cant be walked off with unless someone has found a way to break into private set boats.

    As for the GM delete.... Unless its illegal to park in the middle of the ocean with no other ships around you... I cant see a GM killing the boat for no reason. Ether time. Both boats disapear with no reason seems a bit odd if you ask me.

    What bugs me is my son's other boat has been on the water like the "Pearl" with no problems. Now I go from ship to ship to refresh so one would think if one was poofed why not the other?? Refresh was done at the same time (give or take a minute or two).

    I sometimes wonder if there is a bug with the ships with the refresh rate timer... you know like how the plants jump a day or 2 in growth could the boats be aging by a hic up in the timer?

    I gave up on the new ships after I lost net connection longer then the decay claimed my ship... but I end up forgetting about my old school ships because fishing has been so lame since High Seas ruined it. To save money and fuss, if I use a ship... I just bring it back to land and dock it. No more loosing ships. :D

    It's a bit difficult to do quests and dock your ship at the end of play time..... especialy if you want to build up to the good rewards.

    I have never had this much trouble with a ship as I have with these HS ones.

    Just out of curiosity, why is fishing lame now? Sea serpents still spawn - sometimes more often than I want them, mibs can still fished, nets thrown. The only thing I don't do any more is throw the white nets. If you don't want to do the quests, just cut the fish into fishsteaks as we always did before.

    I still love fishing.

    If you don't want to do the quests you can make a good bit of gold selling the fish in bulk to those who DO.

    Especially crab and lobster.

    I find it fun.

    I don't throw white nets in anymore either Petra. Unless I have a BIG group to play with me.

    The only things that are sad about fishing now is:

    At 120 fishing I should NOT get boots, shoes or sandals EVER. Wouldn't be too horrible if the boots and shoes and sandals came in COOL colors like you can't get any other way or with dyes. However the blah boring stuff who cares and seriously I can't be that bad a fisherman at 120 to get that much footwear!

    It would have been nice with the revamp of fishing loot to now get the new shame stuff... or at least some sort of a bump worth while.

    MIB's should spawn for Tokuno and the Lost Lands. Why they don't is beyond me... and it would be cool if in Tokuno White MIB's came with Tokuno based mini's. Stuff done in T2A could have ML stuff...

    I have no idea why Sea Serpents have some of the LAMEST loot EVER! You get more off a Mongbat than a Sea Serpent. Blows my mind why the loot on these things is so very pitiful.

    Deep Sea serpents should give even better loot... but don't.

    I'm super happy with the new items in the MIB pre-loot... though I've been wanting new fresh paintings for YEARS.

    I hear that one ! love the new paintings and things ... makes decoing alot more fun.

    I just didnt like the boat disapearing for no reason. My old ones never poofed on me like these new hulks do. It would be nice if they made it so if you DO have ot replace the boat you can get the crates you had back so your not our that ton of crabs you worked your tail fins off for dont go poof too!!! hehe

    I love fishing.... oh if you dont want to sit on a boat head for Mag docks. I swear my fishier cant keep the bloody Sea Slugs away !! and best off is almost every one has something on it. Mibs up the kazoo, nets and maps were flowing out of these silly critters. The nice leather they give is good too. (my bug loves the scobie snacks i get off the deeps!)
