Halkeides’s Boat & Sailing Guide Introduction

This boat guide contains info about ship combat, boat stats and boat crafting, the Margoria expansion and everything it brought: trade boat, guild galley, Epheria Frigate, Margoria ocean mobs / sea monsters, boat gear, and sailing tips / tricks.

This is a compilation of information that I have been searching and using and there is also some of my experience in it. I have to say that I am not the owner of the pictures and some of them have a link redirecting to the web page where i extracted them.

I hope you find this useful.

Margoria Sea Monsters & Their Drops

BDO Ship

When you are in the Great Ocean, you will encounter various deadly sea monsters. These monsters can’t be killed by traditional means and must be hunted with large Epheria Sailboat/Frigate or Guild Galley, which have cannons that can be manned by players. The player steering the boat can also do damage by ramming the monster, using the Ram Skill (Q).

The rewards of hunting sea monsters
Although challenging, battling sea monsters provides several benefits. They drop items that are used to craft ship gear, which improves ship stats like movement speed, turn, stamina, etc. Killing sea monsters also helps to provide guild funds and guild XP. You will be unable to promote your sailors in quests like: [Boatman Promotion] The Man and the Sea I, if you do not hunt sea monsters.

Great Ocean Events

While you are in Ross Sea or Margoria Sea, you may encounter events which will harm your ship if you are travelling afk.

BDO Ocean Hurricane/Tornado

Hurricanes/Tornadoes

Tornadoes only occur when you are at the wheel of the ship and moving. They damage your ship and may cause you to lose trade items from cargo.


Lightning
Your fishing will be interrupted when struck by lightning. This causes your AFK fishing session to stop.

BDO Margoria Phantom Ship

Margoria Phantom Ship

It can spawn with stormy weather and will force you out of the helm, stopping your boat. You must kill it with cannon fire. It can occur when you are at the wheel of your ship, whether you are moving or not. If you don’t want to fight it, swap characters or channels, and the ghost ship will despawn.

Margoria Lost Item

Margoria Lost Item Margoria Lost Item

Margoria Lost Item spawns randomly on sunken ship remains

You can loot it with a Silver Key It’s a little confusing, but I think you randomly obtain items from Furious Sea Spirit Fragment loot table shown on bddatabase.net.

How to Repair a Ship

Some boats, like Epheria Sailboats, don’t have a limited lifespan like Fishing Boats do. They will last forever. However, almost every boat needs to have their durability repaired. Repair items are crafted by Chopping Plywood via the Processing window or obtained by crafting in a Ship Part Workshop (2nd floor, Epheria 1-4).

Boat Durability Repair

Boat Lifespan: some boats have a limited Lifespan, like the Fishing Boat.

BDO Boat Lifespan

Boat Durability: Boat Durability requires repair after a certain amount of sailing.

BDO Boat Durability

There are 4 ways to repair a ship:

Ship repair items can be used for the Galley, the Epheria Sailboat and the Epheria Frigate. How to Use: interact with the mast.

Ship Repair Material

It takes 10 sec to apply, and it recovers 2% of ship durability. It can be obtained by chopping any type of plywood.

Ship Repair Kit

It takes 20 sec to apply, and it recovers 2% of the ship durability. It is obtained in the same Ship Part Workshop (2nd floor, Epheria 1-4), where you craft the Epheria blue grade ship gear.

Emergency Ship Repair Kit

Recover Ship Durability 0.4%.

It is obtained through processing: Ship Repair Material X10 + Steal X5 + Plywood Hardener X1

Advanced Sea Monster Hunting Tactics

The T-W-Q Ram sequence is no longer required, so it’s much easier to Ram after the August 22nd, 2018 patch. However, damage from the Ram skill was significantly decreased (-30%), leading some players to complain or rejoice, or to rejoice and complain at the same time while juggling cannon balls across the sea. Anyway, sea monster hunting is still a fun way to play for many ocean voyagers. It just takes longer to solo hunt than it used to.

  • XBOX 360 Controller: there are reports of players getting amazing navigation using an Xbox controller. (with boat movement that is hard to do reliably without a high precision mouse and steady hand)
    *** Read more about using and configuring gamepads for sailing in our BDO Controller Guide *** (This BDO Controller guide goes into detail about controller mapping for sailing & sea monster hunting.)
    Patch Notes 4-10-19 state: “Fixed the issue where you were able to turn abnormally quickly using the controller pad while riding a ship.”
  • W-Q: causes the boat to instantly charge forward into a 5 second Ram animation. You do not need to be sailing at full speed first. Previously, in order use Ram (Q), you had to be at “sailing speed” going forward or use the hotly debated T-W-Q combo. (Pressing T after W, canceled the sailing speed requirement, letting you ram again.). Since August 22nd, 2018 patch, the sailing speed requirement was removed: “After using Ram, press Q to launch attacks right away.” and you can now Ram “by pressing Q while sailing regardless of speed.”
    • Cannon upgrades still increase Ramming damage: although this damage was decreased as well as the Ram skill damage in the August 22nd, 2018 patch: “Fixed the issue where damage inflicted would be tripled upon equipping the cannon suitable for Galley, Epheria Sailboat, and Epheria Frigate.”
    • Increase the zoom of your minimap with 5 clicks: This is roughly Ram’s max range.
    • Learn the proper range for starting Ram, in order to achieve the max number of hits at the end of the Ram animation.
  • S-T-S-R: instant stop for the boat
  • CTRL to engage Mouse Movement: clicking the water or sea monster and then hold Right Mouse Button then turn the camera. Instantly turns the ship up to 180 degrees Apparently mouse movements were disabled in the 4-3-19 Patch.

Sailing Nerfs or Improvements?

Patch 4-24-19 Back Attack Removed

  • Fixed the issue where some of the motion of the following sea creatures would count as back attacks.

    • Hekaru: Fixed the issue where Back Attack was possible when launching attacks from behind in all situations.
    • Candidum: Fixed the issue where Back Attack was possible during when Candidum was moving back to its initial point of spawn.

  • Fixed the issue where Back Attack was possible during certain movements and attack motions for the following monsters:
    • Black Rust
    • Nineshark

    • Ocean Stalker

    • Young Candidum

    • Young Black Rust

    • Young Nineshark

Patch 4-10-19 Controller Changes

Fixed the issue where you were able to turn abnormally quickly using the controller pad while riding a ship.

Patch 4-3-19 Disables Mouse Movement

The use of mouse movements will not be available while boarding the Galley, Epheria Sailboat, Epheria Frigate, and Old Bartali Sailboat.

Patch 1-23-19 Lowers Sea Monster Drops

The chances of obtaining the items below by defeating monsters in the ocean has decreased by 60%.

  • [Guild] Steel Candidum Shell

  • [Guild] Amethyst Hekaru Spike

  • [Guild] Black Rust Tongue

  • [Guild] Nineshark’s Fin

  • [Guild] Ocean Stalker Whisker

  • [Guild] Goldmont Pirate Golden Goblet

Ram and Cannon Changes: 8-22-18 Patch

  • Fixed the issue where damage inflicted would be tripled upon equipping the cannon suitable for Galley, Epheria Sailboat, and Epheria Frigate.
    • [Guild] Galley: Maria Cannon
    • Epheria Sailboat: Julia Cannon
    • [Guild] Galley: Sophia Cannon
    • Epheria Sailboat: Elena Cannon
    • Epheria Frigate : Lillia Cannon
    • Epheria Frigate: Zafina Cannon
    • Epheria Sailboat: Elise Cannon
    • Epheria Frigate: Serena Cannon
  • Ram skill damage have been reduced by 30% for Galley, Epheria Sailboat, and Epheria Frigate.
  • It has become more convenient to use the skill Ram for Galley, Epheria Sailboat, and Epheria Frigate.
    • [How to Use]
      • Previously: By pressing Q while sailing and speed picked up.
      • Changed to: By pressing Q while sailing regardless of speed.
    • [Attacking]
      • Previously: After using Ram, attack was possible again after moving a certain distance.
      • Changed to: After using Ram, press Q to launch attacks right away.

Fluffy’s Ship Combat Tactics

The following tactics are quoted from an awesome Sea Monster Guide written by FluffyQuack on the official BDO forums. Sea Monster Hunting Guide Thanks Fluffy! ūüôā

How should I hunt sea monsters?

Guild Galley with a party of 5 people (one captain and four cannoneers). There's really no other practical way. If you do it with an Epheria Sailboat, you can kill Hekarus and Ocean Stalkers, but it will be very slow. A Guild Galley can hunt those much faster, and also take on harder sea monsters like Candidums and Black Rusts.

BDO Sailing Ship Any tips on how to fight sea monsters?

Yes! To begin with, our guild struggled to kill more than 2-3 weaker sea monsters before we had to make a pit stop at Port Ratt or Lema, but after learning various tricks we became capable of killing 7-8 of the strongest sea monsters in one single trip. First of all, you want a Guild Galley and you want a party of 5 players. All crew members should be carrying 30+ Ship Repair Materials (buy them from the marketplace or craft them using plywood) and 1-2 Breezy Crystals (bought from guild NPC). You use these items to repair health and power of the Galley.

I'll divide tips into two categories. One for the people handling the cannons, and one for the person steering the ship.

Cannoneers:
  • You'll want to man the cannons on the right side (that's starboard for fancy boat talk people). The reason is simple: the ship sails can get in the way of the camera when using the left side cannons.
  • You hold shift and W/D to change vertical firing angle.
  • You hold shift and LMB to ready the cannon for firing. This shows you a rough firing arc, and you'll fire once you let go of LMB. The cannon will fire automatically if you hold LMB for too long.
  • The easiest shot to make is when the sea monster is right next to your ship. Just aim straight down and fire. These will almost always hit and it feels like the sea monster has a massive hitbox when it's right next to you.
  • Long distance shots are generally risky, and if you go for them, I suggest aiming just behind the sea monster (from your perspective) for it to connect.
  • The game can be deceitful when it comes to telling you if you actually hit the sea monster or not. You heard the shot hit and you saw blood? That shot might still have been a miss for unknown reasons. The only way to tell if your shot connected is if you see a health bar after hitting the sea monster.
Captain:
Sailing Anchor
  • Try to always turn in the same direction so you're essentially sailing in one big circle. There's always a risk of de-aggroing the sea monster, and it'll regain all of its health whenever this happens. This reduces the chances of that happening.
  • If there's floating boxes or a shipwreck nearby, you can try to stay near the vicinity of it to avoid the sea monster de-aggroing. If there's nothing nearby to use as reference point, ask a crew member to use a maid and tell them to not close the maid window.
  • Remember to use the boost skills (Q while moving or Space while still) when the sea monster is about to attack. You'll have to get used to the behaviour and animations of the sea monsters to tell when they're about to attack.
  • Sailing backwards can be very useful for adjusting your angle without moving too far. Try to avoid doing this while the sea monster is close as it'll take a while before you can use any boost skill after sailing backwards.
  • In general, you wanna go for hit'n'run attacks. Move (or wait) for the sea monster to get close, make sure cannoneers have a good angle for firing, and boost away once you see the sea monster getting ready for an attack.
  • Hekarus and Ocean Stalkers are really easy to deal with so they're good to hunt for practice. Nine Sharks don't have a lot of health, but they can deal serious damage to your ship. Candidums are very tanky and they have really erratic behaviour (they're the most likely to de-aggro). Black Rusts are the toughest of sea monsters and they'll wreck your ship unless you avoid their attacks.
  • A sign of a good fight is if you defeated one of the toughest sea monsters having only lost 10-15% ship health.
Is ramming sea monsters viable?

I've only got a small amount of experience with this, but yes, it is. Ramming isn't intuitive at all as you only do damage at the very end of the animation. If you can master the timing for it, it can be viable to take down tougher monsters with it even as a solo player, although Professional 1 Sailing (for the fast backwards movement) is practically required.

Sailing & Ship Combat FAQ

  • BDO Boat Stuck or Sunk? Help!
    • Escape Option: If your boat gets stuck in the middle of nowhere, press Esc key and then the “Escape” button in the game interface. You will need to gather your boat at a Wharf Master when it teleports you to land. I did this twice, and it placed me on the mainland at the river West of Velia. I’m not sure of the “safe” area it’s going to put you, so use at your own risk! Note that this does not work in the Greater Ocean. It puts you in a safe location in the Great Ocean, which doesn’t help much.
    • Contact Support Option: You can use the in-game support and let them know your boat is stuck. My sister did this once and they transported her and her boat all the way to Velia, even though she was way over in the deep sea by Port Epheria. This option can take over a day to complete, so you will have to play an alt while you wait. Use at your own risk!
    • Old Moon Flare: Costs 300 Loyalties (F3). This will make a rescue ship spawn and sail to Port Ratt or Lema Island. It can be a bit buggy. Sometimes nothing happens and you may have to use two.
  • Can I sail to Margoria with a Fishing Boat?
    • It’s possible to cross the Great Ocean on a Fishing Boat, but it’s not recommended. A Fishing Boat can only take 1 or 2 hits from hostile sea monsters, and it’s not easy to outrun a Nineshark in a Fishing Boat. To have any chance of not getting stranded in the middle of the ocean on a wimpy Fishing Boat, you have to be very vigilant and careful. Hekaru (big purple whale) and Ocean Stalker (green sea snake) are friendly unless attacked. However, Pirate ships and every other sea monster will be hostile. Avoidance Tip: study the sea monster map and steer clear of sea monsters with white and light blue coloring. You’ll notice that if you skirt around the northern edge, you can avoid much of the Pirate and Nineshark spawn locations. In your game settings, have viewing distance at max and run around everything suspicious in the water. *Gulp!* Good Luck you Fish monger!
    BDO Sailing on a Fishing Boat
  • Can a Fishing Boat survive a ghost/phantom ship?
    • The ghost ship doesn’t do too much damage to a ship. It will leave Fishing Boats alone and only stops Galley/Epheria Ships.
  • Is an Epheria Sailboat faster than a Fishing Boat?
    • Even if your Fishing Boat has +10 gear, the Epheria Sailboat is faster and has an added bonus of being less costly to repair.
  • Can I harpoon off my Epheria Sailboat?
    • You can only harpoon off of a Fishing Boat. Galleys/Epheria ships can’t be used if you want to do any harpooning.
  • Do i have to buy more than one cannon for the Epheria Sailboat/Frigate or Galley?
    • You automatically have a cannon, but you can purchase a green grade one at the vendor, and can craft a blue grade cannon in a workshop. You only need to make/buy/enhance one cannon and they will be used for all the ones you see on the Frigate/Sailboat/Galley.
  • How many repair materials/kits should i bring?
    • Voyages from Port Epheria to Port Ratt and back to Port Epheria won’t require repair kits on an Epheria Sailboat. However, if you are hunting sea monsters, you will want tier 2 (blue grade) repair kits. But if possible, you’re better off sailing to a Wharf Manager and repairing. Repair kits are really only useful if you have another player helping. (Expect to spend 1 million silver for full repair at a Wharf Manager.)
  • Do I need workers for an Epheria Sailboat/Frigate or a Guild Ship?
    • You can exchange 50 Shakatu Seals for an Epheria Sailboat and you can quest for a Guild Galley. But to craft a ship in a shipyard, you will want many regular city workers. You can also obtain sailors/boatmen for both the guild ship (Galley) and non-guild Epheria Sailboat and Epheria Frigate. These special workers act like equipment to buff your ship. See below for more details on building ships and obtaining sailors/boatmen.
  • Do I need to load the cannon after each shot?
    • Cannonballs can be put into the cargo of the ship and will be pulled automatically as they are fired. Sometimes cannonball quantity will get bugged and you have to take them out and put them in again to restore.
  • Can I hunt sea monsters solo?
    • There are many reports of players doing this. Please see the advanced sea monster hunting guide. It’s best to have at least one other player with you, but it’s possible to hunt the smaller monsters solo. Allot will depend upon the enhancement level of your cannon and plating of the ship. Preferably +7, but that is expensive to obtain. At least have +5 green gear. You can’t move the ship and fire cannons at the same time, so solo hunting requires mastering the Ram boat skill (W+Q: see advanced sea monster tactics). You will need to repair after one or maybe two Hekaru.
  • Which Epheria ship is best?
    • Frigate and Sailboat comparison…
    • Epheria Sailboat: 25 inventory slots. 5,000LT weight limit. 10% lower Speed, Brake, Accel, Turn. 2 cannons. Blue boat gear requires 50% less materials.
    • Epheria Frigate: 12 inventory slots. 4,000LT weight limit. 10% higher Speed, Brake, Accel, Turn. 4 cannons. Blue gear requires 50% more mats.
    • TLDR: Epheria Sailboat excels at trading. Epheria Frigate excels at hunting Sea Monsters

Boat Types & Boat List (Small Boats)

The following boat types, I have labeled small, because they are inferior to the Margoria, Great Ocean type of boats that should be used in Margoria (Great Ocean) waters. However, these smaller boats are perfect for the waters surrounding the main land. Good for fishing and exploring inside safer waters. They are also much easier to obtain and build. One only requires 10k silver from a vendor. Of course, cheaper price means lower boat stats. These ships are not recommended for Great Ocean waters. Be extremely careful and patient, if you decide to take these boats into Ross/Margoria seas.

Patch Notes – 20th June 2018 – Guild Crafting system has been revamped:

  • You can access the Guild Crafting window from Guild (G) > Guild Crafting.

    • In the Guild Crafting window, select “Select Product” and then the item and quantity you want to produce.

    • After you press “Start Crafting,” a menu will appear where you can input the crafting materials.

    • You can input the required materials from your personal inventory.

    • Please note that you can not retrieve items you have inputted.

    • Once all the materials have been inputted, crafting can begin.

    • Once crafting begins, the expected work time until completion will appear, as well as a button to “Complete Now.”

    • The completed product will automatically be stored in your Guild Storage.

    • Instead of using workers, Guild members can now input items from their personal Inventories for Guild Crafting.

    • However, you need to input all of the necessary materials to start crafting.

      • (Therefore, we believe that it would be helpful to gather all the necessary materials before bidding on a Guild House.)

    • The crafting time for each item you can Guild Craft is set. You can use Guild Funds to use the “Complete Guild Crafting Now” function and finish crafting an item immediately.

      • It will cost 10,000 Silver per second left of the estimated work time to “Complete Now.”

    • You cannot choose multiples of the same item for Guild Crafting.

    • There is a daily limit for each craftable item through Guild Crafting.

    • Each craftable item through Guild Crafting can be crafted one at a time..

    • The completed product will automatically be stored in your Guild Storage.

    • Guild Activity will not rise for Guild Crafting.

  • Guild Crafting specs:
  • Patch Notes – 15th August 2018: It has been changed that items produced from Guild Crafting can be stacked in Inventory. If you have the relevant items in the Inventory separately in Inventory, you can store them in Storage and retrieve again to have them stacked in Inventory.

Great Ocean Epheria Boats

BDO Ship

Is it worth it to acquire specialized Great Ocean boats? When you are in the Great Ocean, you will encounter various deadly sea monsters. These monsters can’t be killed by traditional means and must be hunted with large Epheria Sailboat/Frigate or Guild Galley, which have cannons that can be manned by players. The player steering the boat can also do damage by ramming the monster, using the Ram Skill (Q).

The rewards of hunting sea monsters
Although challenging, battling sea monsters provides several benefits. They drop items that are used to craft ship gear, which improves ship stats like movement speed, turn, stamina, etc. Killing sea monsters also helps to provide guild funds and guild XP. You will need to hunt sea monsters, if you would like to promote your sailors in quests like: [Boatman Promotion] The Man and the Sea I.

Epheria Sailboat vs Epheria Frigate

The Epheria Sailboat is a nice personal boat, best used for trading purposes, but does have 2 cannons for sea monster hunting. This sailboat is the least expensive Epheria boat to build and costs half as much to equip with blue grade sailboat gear. It has over twice as much storage as the Epheria Frigate, but suffers a 10% penalty to Acceleration, Turn, Brake, and Speed. The Epheria Sailboat also helps traders by having 1,000LT more weight limit.

  • So which Epheria ship is best?
    • ——— Quick Frigate and Sailboat Comparison ———
    • Epheria Sailboat: 25 storage slots. 5,000LT weight limit. 10% lower Speed, Brake, Accel, Turn. 2 cannons. Blue boat gear requires 50% less materials.
    • Epheria Frigate: 12 storage slots. 4,000LT weight limit. 10% higher Speed, Brake, Accel, Turn. 4 cannons. Blue gear requires 50% more mats.
    • TLDR: Epheria Sailboat excels at trading. Epheria Frigate excels at hunting Sea Monsters

Sailor / Boatman

Sailor & Boatman Basics

Sailors for Boats

Guild Galley and Epheria Sailboat/Epheria Frigate can be equipped with 1 Sailor or Boatman, depending upon which type of boat. Boatmen are used on Epheria ships and [Guild] X Sailors on Guild Galleys. These NPCs provide different passive buffs to your ship, depending upon which race you choose. You can hold multiple different workers in your inventory and switch them out as needed. In order to fill a boat’s sailor/boatman slot, you have to buy (hire) a sailor from an NPC. You can improve boatman/sailor buffs by doing certain quests, when your Sailing skill reaches a certain level (Skilled/Professional). Sailors/Boatmen are treated like an inventory item and not like normal workers.

Sailors for Guild Ships (Galley)
In order to obtain sailors for your Guild Galley, you have to buy them with silver from a Guild Wharf Manager NPC. They cost 2.5 million silver and can only be equipped by Guild Officers.

Boatman for Epheria Sailboats/Frigates
In order to obtain a boatman for your Epheria Ships, you have to buy them with 1 million silver and get 500 Amity with one of 4 different NPCs, depending upon which boatman and buffs you want. (Or you can purchase any 4 boatmen from the <Work Supervisor> Lilvayne in Calpheon City.) All Boatmen of the same race have the same stats, no matter if they are for Frigates or Sailboats. In other words, Frigate boatmen have the same stats as Sailboat boatmen. They just have a little different name, depending upon the Epheria boat type: such as “Frigate Sailor Contract: Boatman Bravant” instead of “Sailboat Sailor Contract: Boatman Bravant”.

Boatman (Epheria Sailboat & Epheria Frigate)
Contract Renewal: Skilled/Professional Boatman (for Epheria Sailboat and Epheria Frigate) costs 500 Amity from Tirol at Dias Farm, Calpheon. Amity Points will decrease by 500. You can buy multiple when the window is open and you don’t have to repeat the amity game unless you close out the window. Contract renewals can be placed in Storage and used between characters on the same account. It’s possible to access a Boatman contract renewal in your storage with a Storage Maid at sea. The contract renewal will extend the contracted period by 24 hours, and Boatmen contracts can be renewed up to 7 times.

Leveling Sailing via Quests & Sea Monster Hunting

BDO Sailing watching kids swim

Sailing Skill can be leveled by:

  • Sailing in Ross/Margoria
  • Daily Sailing quests
  • Defeating Young Nineshark, Young Candidum, and Young Black Rust: located around the border area of Ross Sea and Margoria Sea. (However, Life EXP boosts will not apply here.)

Most of your sailing xp is probably going to come from the sailing daily quests and hunting young sea monsters. Of course, you could always sail all day long, but that would require allot of W pressing. You could press T and auto travel forward, but if you aren’t carefully watching, you could end up dead in dangerous waters or off course somewhere. If you do decide to auto sail with T, be sure to turn off your screen saver, or your boat might go in circles.

Life Skill XP Changes on April 30th 2019

Patch Notes – April 30th 2019 Source

  • In order to alleviate the difference among Life Skill levels, the required EXP and obtained EXP have been readjusted for Hunting, Training, Farming, and Sailing.
    (However, Life Skill EXP obtained from quests will not change.)

    • We have decided to make adjustments for the 4 Life Skills above in order to alleviate the difference among Life Skills Levels. Therefore, we reduced required EXP for Sailing and increased obtainable EXP for Hunting, Training and Farming. We‚Äôll bring our best to preserve the value of every Adventurer‚Äôs efforts.

      • Required EXP decreased ‚Äď Sailing

      • Obtainable EXP increased ‚Äď Hunting, Training, Farming, Sailing, Fishing, Trade

    • With the change of the obtainable and required EXP amount, Life Skill Level for Hunting, Training, Farming and Sailing will also increase proportional to the adjustment made.

Patch Notes – May 8th 2019: Source

  • Life Skill Level has been expanded.

    • While there are adventurers who have reached the Guru level in certain Life Skills, there are also certain Life Skills where adventurers are remaining at a relatively lower level.

    • Last week, we adjusted the amount of EXP required for each Life Skill in order to adjust for the amount of effort put into each Life Skill.

    • Also, in order to provide a target goal for adventurers who have already reached the top level, we have expanded all Life Skill levels up to “Guru 50”.

    • Due to the increase in Life Skill levels, you can now receive more benefits from the higher levels, and we will also continue to provide various updates to enhance the Life Skill content.

Sailing Quests: Through the Rough Tides

Through the Rough Tides has 4 different options…

  • Through the Rough Tides: Epheria
  • Through the Rough Tides: Velia
  • Through the Rough Tides: Altinova
  • Through the Rough Tides: Ancado

To start the quest, you need to make your way to Port Ratt. If you have Port Ratt discovered already, you can use a Traveler’s Map from Ross sea and it will take you all the way there (eliminating a very long sail time). Traveler's Map Current Marketplace price is 700k.

  • Ship Remote Collect: You can “Remote Collect” your ship at the nearest Wharf Manager. But only if the ship has no items in its storage! If your ship is carrying any items, then it will be teleported to the nearest Wharf Manager and probably loose what it’s carrying… grrr.
  • Checked-in Ship Transport:
    • Talk to the Wharf Manager NPC
    • If your mount has items in its inventory, the ship cannot be transported.
    • Ship transport costs 100k Silver, and it takes 10 minutes to complete.

Once you’re there you’ll want to talk to Sihuram, the Guild Wharf Manager. Sihuram, Wharf Manager

Sailing Quests: Through the Rough Tides

She will give you the option to go to one of 4 locations for the daily. The list is in order of least xp to most xp. Think of it as, the farther you have to travel the more sailing xp you get from the quest.

Sailing Quest NPC Sihuram

After you accept the quest to go to one of those locations, make sure you grab the Old Moon Trade Item. If you do not grab the trade item you cannot finish the quest.

The Ancado quest gives the most xp by far, but I should warn you that it’s a terrible idea to sail all the way there. It will be much faster to sail to land and then run your horse to the desert to turn in the trade item.

The Rough Tides: Ancado sailing daily is a long process where you have to cross the entire ocean twice. Unless you enoy sailing or have another reason to go to Port Ratt, you might want to think twice before spending 2 hours on this one quest.

Swimming Mechanics & Tips

Somehow, I frequently find myself stuck underneath a pier or my own boat, while swimming! Do you have the same troubles? Remember that there are key presses to swim up or down.

E = SWIM STRAIGHT UP
Q = SWIM STRAIGHT DOWN
F = RECOVER STAMINA

TIP: When you use the Q key you dive straight down. If you need more of a diagonal downward direction, then you must use your W key. Q+W will not work.

Surface Swimming:

  • You can Auto Swim on the surface of the water by pressing T, after right clicking anywhere on your map.
  • You must be on the surface to Auto Swim.
  • You can press T key without an auto path to make your character swim straight ahead.
  • Sprint on the water surface by pressing Shift key. Your Stamina must be over 300.
  • If your Stamina is below 100, pressing T key to Auto Swim will only activate the motion to recover Stamina, and your character will start swimming again if the Stamina recovers to over 1,000.
  • Use the Escape key, when you get stuck. Select “Escape” button that looks like a hand. It will put you at the closest “Safe” Zone. Could be a node. Often, if you are by a beach, it will put you there.

Diving and Underwater Swimming:

  • A breath meter appears and you will begin to loose breath.
  • When breath meter reaches 0, you will begin to drown and slowly rise to the surface.
  • Drowning by loosing breath, will not kill your character, but you will loose all ability to control your character.
  • Swimming and floating on the surface consumes Stamina.
  • At 0 Stamina, you will loose all ability to move and will be stuck. Recover Stamina slowly over time by pressing F key.

Boat & Cannon Emotes

Press the following command keys to have your character perform the special actions/emotes while on certain boats or cannons:

  • <Galley, Frigate, Sailboat>
    • Z : All aboard!

    • X : Portside, fire!

    • C : Starboard, fire!

    • V: Let‚Äôs feed them to the fish!

  • <Cannons of Galley, Frigate, Sailboat>
    • Z : Harpoon ready to fire!

    • X : Set sail!

    • C : Fire in the hole!

    • V : We need ammunition!

  • HAPPY Sailing!!
