Leveling sailing skill

26 posts in this topic

Posted

I noticed there is a new skill line to level, which is great. However, I have been sailing my fishing boat around for a while now and the exp bar hasn't moved at all. Does anyone have any information on levelling this? I have been doing it afk, so not sure if that has anything to do with it, or if you need to sail the new boat designs.

1: you need to control the boat manually. 2: Only on the area of the sea where the map does not work you gain exp for it.

Is this life skill bugged? I have been sailing the fast seas of Margoria (without autopath, just exploring) on my fishing boat but so far I only got a bit of experience in the first part of the story quest line before Lema Island. My sailing is stuck at beginner 1, 18%.

You must be in Ross sea or Magoria sea, where your map doesn't work.

I think there is a bug with it taking you off the boat after 3 hours of afk sailing. (happened to me three times already)

I think that's just lag.

you do not have to manually sail. Hit T works just fine long as you are out in the sea (where the map does not work). Just might get attacked by stuff is reason to do it manually.

you need to be in magoria (or very south of arehaza) where you can't see your map and drive your boat. doesn't have to be manual (can just press T and let it go), but its based off "distance travelled" so you cant just hook up an xbox controller and elastic a joystick so it does donuts all day, best way to level at the moment if you want to afk is to just press T in sea of ross and let the afk screen effects turn you, although you can still get stuck, get popped out of ross sea and into one with a map, or get farther into magoria and killed by mobs.

Still waiting here hear a point to this. WHAT IS SAILING!?!? Why in the world would we want to spend countless hours leveling it? DO WE BENEFIT IN ANY WAY FROM SAILING XP?

Why in the world would you guys release new stuff and not explain it...

If you want me to spend my time doing something, tell me why I should!

You need to sail in the new ocean area. Only place you can get xp. You get skills for the new ship you can make and I would imagine the guild one. So cannon skills and such would be my guess.

i imagine it works just like training(horses)...sailing(boat) just different mounts.

Sailing lets you use special skills on the new boats and hire skilled boatsman which gives the boat perks.

I think that ships have skills like horses but require a certain sailing level to use  (☞゚ヮ゚)☞

Gonna take long time to level it that high. At Beginner 10, sailing from port epheria to the new port and back only gave me 10% each way.

does not need to be manually. push T and your boat will move on its own (safest in the ross sea because sea creatures do not aggro you)

not exactly autopathing, but also there

 

EDIT:

already mentioned. whoops.

Sail E to W in Ross sea, much safer, you can even hit T and go afk for 1/2hr at a time or more
