Thanks to TC1 having GL or I may have never taken to the High Seas. Chicken of the Sea, assembled a crew on TC1 and took on a few pirate quests. Each time, it was loads of fun, but our ship was damaged to toast, and there was no damage to the pirate ship. I'm now reading as much of the suggestions here as I can before trying again. One question I have is whether the bug that caused pirate ships to be invulnerable has been fixed. I didn't see anything mentioned in publish notes from 68.1 forward, unless I missed it. If these ship can now be damaged, when do their cannons stop firing at you? Does all of the crew have to be dead, or must the pirate also be dead? Also, I saw a video where the pirate only has a sword, but all the ones we've encounted has a heavy crossbow. What gives?
