    I had so many quest trips from Brit to Skara that the tillerman volunteered to walk the plank and quit...... The last I saw of him he was swimming toward new haven :)

    you DO know that is one of the easiest and shortest ones to deliver, right?

    Sail to the server line between Britain and Trinsic, to the west of Buc's Den.

    North of the line, you can recall to Britain and pickup/deliver to the Britain fishmonger.

    South of the line, you can recall & pickup/deliver to THREE cities, without moving the boat any further - Trinsic, Jhelom and Skara Brae.

    Sometimes you might end up delivering a dozen or more quests before all the remaining quests end up as Vesper, Papua, Moonglow and the Floating Emporium.

    When that happens,
    a. you sail to the serpent pillar off Trinsic (don't go through yet)
    b. recall to Vesper, deliver & pick up quests, recall back to the boat,
    c. then use the pillar to get to the lost lands, pick up and deliver there,
    d. then come back out (if the replacement is to Vesper and you can immediately fill it with backstock, repeat steps b & c.)
    e. sail to the Floating emporium, but don't immediately go to the docks unless you have no need for step f.
    f. recall Moonglow to pickup/deliver there, then back to your boat
    g. Now dock at the FE and deliver.
    h. Once that's done, keep doing this second group of 4 cities by sailing back and forth between FE and the Pillar, until you end up with all your active quests being for the Britain/Trinsic/Jhelom/Skara foursome
    At which point you go back to that Buc's den server line, and just keep hopping back and forth across the line until you repeat the cycle once more.

    You just made me the happiest person and the most upset.......

    I was under the impression the ship itself had to be close to the docks.......

    And here I was sailing all around the map going to the docks to get the ship close.....

    Thank you very very much for the info, it has been the best info ever :)

    So basically as long as the ship is in the server I can recall to the docks, wonderfull information to have....

    A million thanks :)
