New Game Features

Ship Captaincy

Apparently, this is a long-awaited feature for some of the players. It is now possible for a pirate to become the Captain themselves! You can buy these ships and manage them from the game’s menu screen. While Shipwrights are meant to look after the ship’s needs, the Sovereigns will be the ones to steal treasure and sell them in place of you. 

Shipwright Services

  • Being the captain of a ship provides more access to several things, but this accessibility also demands responsibility. As the Captain, of course, it is your sole responsibility to take care of your ship before anyone else attempts to attack or steal from it.
  • When you are sailing a Captained ship, the common tradesfolk also gain new importance in managing your ship. They are now capable of restoring any damage for a certain fee and supply you with special Captain’s Voyages. 

Ship Customization

  • As previously mentioned, being the Captain of the ship grants privileges. A significant part of this privilege is to gain access to decorating your own ship. The chance to redecorate your own quarters is exclusive only to the Captain.
  • Tables and chairs, curtains and drapes, beds, rugs, and chandeliers can all be replaced with new versions acquired during your exploits. Trinkets will also give your ship that final unique touch.

Gameplay Fixed Issues

For a smoother game experience, certain issues from the previous version have also been fixed:

  • Players on Xbox no longer have the option to ‘Recentre Mouse in Menus’ via the in-game Settings Menu, even if they use a mouse connected to the sole as the feature is not available for consoles.
  • The Emissaries passing into a Tunnel of the Damned can drop a Broken Emissary Flag again in the water when they leave the server. 
  • The items brought on board are now accurately identified when using a ship’s harpoon to retrieve items and drop them on the edge of the hull. The correct Emissary Grade progression is granted.
  • Cosmetic and Vanity Chests can now sort owned cosmetics by the date they were added to the game.
  • There will no longer be multiple appearances of Graymarrow and Briggsy when canceling and restarting Tall Tale checkpoints.
