The New Boats

    I was on test today since the shard was down Someone in the chat said you could get one of the new boats by cking the blue thingy at the Brit dock. So I travel over there and pick one up. HUGE isnt the word for it. Its a monster of a boat. 1 1/2 times the size of an orc boat. It will hold 9 cannons, has a space for 2 lockdowns. Forge and an anvil would go great there. They seem to travel at a slower rate of speed though. You cannot back it into any of the slips at the sea market, its to wide. It can be pulled in forward.

    Some one also said to get one from the library you need to turn in 10 million fish, crabs and lobsters. For me it will stay at the library.

    I'll get it.


    Eventually. I'm not burning myself out trying to get it in a couple of weeks though. I'll take months, or even years, over it. It's a goal to work towards.

    I will get it too. Not 2011, prolly not 2012 but maybe after that when the rules change and we get more points for our stuff. My previous goal were the fishermans glasses. No special reason .. just to have them as a deco item to display my dedication to fishing. In all the time since the communication collections are live i gathered 360.000 points with fishsteaks. Those points are from the time were ypu couldn't hand in deeded items. ;)

    Well to make it simple, i need 28 times as many points as i have now to get the boat. 4 years for 360.000 points ... hummm ..i didnt plan on getting that old ...

    Yes, the price is quite silly.
    The reason is because of the inflated market prices in the bad economies of the prodo shards. Siege doesn't have this problem!

    I was reading someones comments from a prodo shard ( I forget which shard ), and they said they sell 10 fish for 150k!!! That's 1,000 points per fish if they turn the money in to the collection! We only get one point per fish!

    I am selling 10 fish for 3k ( deep water ) and 4k ( shallow water and dungeon )... the Siege economy needs to be considered by the devs, and they need to lower the price of the ship on our shard. We cannot get 10k points for 10 fish here!

    If we┬┤re thinking of the same post then it was named lobsters or something like that. Not that it matters heh...
