Some days your lucky to find a couple it seems then other days you’ll find 3 at the same time I read that you need to destroy all the pirate and merchant ships to get the beacons to spawn
All ships (Plunderbeacons, Merchant, etc etc) work off the same spawn system. Any ship that spawns has a chance to be a Plunderbeacon, so getting more to spawn (i.e. blowing up other ships) is your best bet to getting to seeing them on the High Seas.If you continue to have issues or you think there may be something not functioning as expected please submit a bug report to bugs@ uo.com with the date, time, shard and facet you are experiencing the issue so we can investigate.
There has been a problem since the soulbinder spawn was turned off. Prior to that whenever you went pirate hunting you ALWAYS found at least 2-3 boats (tokuno) south of the docks over the server line and plenty of beacons. Now you can cross the line and find NONE, then as I said above muck around for ages just trying to find one. This was a thread created back in April on the same issue: https://forum.uo.com/discussion/comment/40395/#Comment_40395@ Kyronix I think you can see there is some kind of problem with the spawn. It happened back at the beginning of April as per that thread and has been continuing since.
The feedback is appreciated, please submit a report as I indicated above. Thanks!
From what I can tell I'm the only ship sailing around. It just seems like the ratio is off... hoping @ Kyronix is able to bump up the beacons AND trade ships ahead of the upcoming new content to allow people to be proactive.
Sailed around for 2 hours last night, destroyed 15 plunder beacons.
