First off, loads of fun... waiting for a ship to appear somewhere... I was kinda taken back and was board after a good hour of sailing fel waters... but then BAM... a pirate ship... I had pre loaded w/ a mix of heavy balls and scatter shot... and rammed sideways into this boat with vengeance.. and in a matter of seconds I had to do emergency repair, sail off and regroup. Damn, that hit hard. Boat was jacked... Went back, and did some defensive maneuvers .. and was able to subdue it... but one cannon kept jacking me... Disabled again, I was able to keep reloading my cannons till it could not fire no more. Two orc mages left, taken out w/ some magery. What's this red dude? Why can't i Kill him.... ... Boarded! Disarm mo fo!!! Holy cow... he hits hard... nevermind.. .OOOOOoOooOOOOooOO... *scratches head* Comes back to boat on tamer, with GD, loot boat.. while healing... hmmm.... why wont he die... Left him alive, and looted. ---------------- Thoughts on the whole experance: Cannons are not bad on loading... as long as you keep supplys in hand. What a pain to repair ship... process ez.. but damn char can't hold 2K boards... and 2K cloth... had em in hold, but grabbing 200-400 at a time... common!! Can you kill the red pirate? I had GD on him while casting magery, life would drop a tad, go back up. I got so much booze, ima be drunk for a year, at least i have tons of fruit to wash it down with...LOL Some washes, and stuff ima have to look up now to figure out wtf they do... hmmmm... ----------------- Overall, im happy with it... now to figure out how to fire a whole side of the ship at once, while controlling it. I was able to do two at once, while reloading and that whole process, I setup a UOA macro, but I think just clicking is just as fast... Time to go find a MERCH ship now... heh.
