Ship Speed

Is there any chance at all that you will consider increasing the speed of ships, or possibly adding a "Cruising Mode" where no activities can be performed other than steering of the ship ? It makes no good sense at all that I can run completely around the entire world several times over before a ship can sail around it a single time. It's also possible to go into wolf form and simply walking along the shoreline faster than a ship can sail. I see no reason why this can't be implemented, the penalties of course would be no fishing, spell casting, combat or cannon firing while in Travel Mode.

Please make the Grizzled Mare a 5 slot mount, it's incredibly rare and deserves it.

  • Rowboat speed also needs to be increased from a sleepy snail's pace to that of an elderly tortoise.

    This issue has never occurred to me before, when I used sailing for fishing and, thus, mostly used the "slow forward" command....

    But now that I need to go all over the place to deliver Orders for Krampus spawning, I realized how much sailing is compared to Land running....

    So, yes, now I am a convert, due to my need to deliver Trade orders as fast as possible, I do wish that there as a Cruise command....
  • Most people cancel the orders for islands...

    I thought cancelling was bad for your status ? Or is that fishing only ?

    I think that cancelling an order should definitively be bad for one's own Trade Orders status....

    Fishing only.  The penalty is a cooldown between being able to pick up another.

    Me too!

    I would love to go back to one order Trade runs.  The first idea of yours that makes sense!

    Refusing a fishing order does NOT damage your reputation, throwing an order overboard after recieving DOES damage your reputation.

    I totally agree with the ship speed request, if you happen to be on the biginning of delivering an order by ship when Krampus pops, you most likely won't have time to jettison your present order and get back to fight him.

    Totally agree that ship speed needs a boost.   Majority of sailing is not only boring,  visually its ugly AF,  if the ocean had animation/waves (like this - )
    It could be a little more bearable.

    ship speed should be worked on. smaller ship faster bigger ship bigger boom..
    Acknowledgment and accountability go a long way...
