Firing a cannon from a ship or boat:

  • To attack from a ship with cannons, you will need cannonballs in your inventory and “Fire Cannon” skill on your hotbar. You will need energy to fire cannon, so keep energy food like fish or similar handy. While mounted, steer your ship with cannons in the direction of the enemy and use the Fire Cannon skill to fire.

Repairing a ship:

  • Use the Repair Ship skill while mounted to repair your ship. You can repair an ally ship by targeting another ship while mounted. You will need Repair Kits in your inventory. Repair Kits can be crafted.

Basic Questing

Quests will lead to newer quests with increasing difficulties.

Basic Treasure Hunting
