    One of the most confusing things about the game after High Seas is that there is no way to move ships between facets without unloading, fully repairing everything, drydocking, going to new location then setting everything back up.

    I would love if there were say two serpent pillars added to Tokuno. Throughout the existing Serpent Pillars in Tram and Fel, and then with the new Tokuno pillars, new power words could be used to teleport ships to whichever facet they choose, the same way it does with T2A.

    Do you not see the inherant flaw in your logic? This is UO and this suggestion makes far too much sense.

    Can only have one ship in water at a time. I use a row boat in the SE waters. Row boat with few choice luanch points on fel shores covers a fishers needs.

    SE waters needs two pillars. The added pillar option window like a moongate with the Tram, Fel and SE Choices when crossing. NPC boat battling needs this update.

    Yes, but you can only have one ship per char in the water at a time (not including rowboats). The hassle with this is that if you are pirating (which I am fond of pirating in Tokuno) you can only accept quests using a ship you placed. Same goes for accepting fishing quests.

    So in essence you either have to use two separate char, one to fish quests, one to do pirate hunting (if you pirate hunt in Tokuno), or pack up, move, unpack your ship every time you want to change facets depending on what you are doing. Now I do have multiple ships in the water. One in Tram, Fel, and Tokuno. My Fel one is for cliff mining (you get double ore AND can still get saltpeter). My tram one is for running fishing quests (I've had to move my fishing to a new char so I could do this), and my Tokuno ship is my pirating ship.

    As you can see buying and placing more ships on more char is still more of a hassle than them creating/updating the system as I have proposed.

    How do you pirate hunt in Tokuno? your post is the only hint I have been able to find that it can be done.

    Use the existing pillars and just add new power words to go to different locations.

    "-If the current Serpent's Pillars are used, a list of specific spoken word commands (like doracron and sueacron) could be employed to make the passage from trammel to felucca, or tokuno and all of the combinations therein.

    -I do think passage to T2A fel should be only possible from the fel pillars.
    *So if you were in trammel and wanted to go to T2A fel you would go to the pillar in tram, say the
    magic word and you would be transported to the corrosponding pillar in fel. then you would have to
    go to that pillar in fel to get to T2A.*

    -fleeing combat rules would apply to the pillars in fel. If you are flagged they wouldn't work.

    -a pillar would have to be placed somewhere in tokuno of course.

    -I like the idea of using the pillars because they already exist and might be less intrusive than creating a
    new device in another location."

    I can only see one downside with this idea.

    You cannot recall/gate/etc to ships in Felucca T2A. I would expand my personal gratification of griefing others by stealing ships from all facets and sending them to remote locations in Felucca T2A.

    Perhaps an anti grief feature that would only allowing the owners of a boat to use a new facet based serpents pillar would work.

    Imo this "anti grief feature" would be a big waste of Dev time. If you want to keep your boat, LOCK IT. Use the key or rune to recall to it...
