Margoria Phantom Ship

What do we know about these things? One thing we can tell depicted here is they appear in the Ross Sea ( best I know they appear in any Shrouded Sea ). They seem to appear as a random encounter centered on a ship with cannons ( no fishing boat encounters for me yet ). Unlike NineSharks, Living Pirate Ships and Black Rusts etc, they do not appear to roam or be in the world unless shrouded before these encounters trigger. 

So whats up with these? Anyone got info out there?

They're random encounters witch prevent you from sailing until you deal with them.

There are 2 ways to do that (if there isn't a glitch)

1) defeat the skeletons that board your ship.

2) defeat the ship itself using cannons

 

It's more of an irritation then a real challange even for a lone player because the ship just stays in place and skeletons are not that hard to deal with. But you're not shielded from other damage while they attack. So if you were running away from a sea monster you might get screwed as it forces you to stop and you cannot move while it's "alive".

Known glitches:

1) skeletons didn't spawn - only way is to destroy the ship, really annoying when you're on lone trade ship.

2) ship doesn't stand still - you're luck if it hunts you, I saw it going after another ship after preventing you from sailing.

Never got anything from it. Heard it that once it dropped something for the guild(probably coins for sell) but i wasn't there to see it for sure and it migh've been loot from something else since they sometimes bug out and don't show in ship inventory for some time.

I encountered this ship last evening on my way to Magoria in the Ross Sea.  I started to fire cannons at it but decided to fight skelly instead.  He dropped 2 gold bars, 100k each.  Good thing since I forgot to bring silver with me.  Once he died I was able to proceed.  The ship appeared as I was traveling through a storm.  I saw a waterspout right before ship spawned.  Was pitch black so made it hard to see ship.  One reason I switched to fighting the mob.

Cool, so loot is possible and Seals of Conquest reported in the next post! Thanks!

Encountered this on my life skill char with no gear on it. FML. Surprisingly I managed to switch chars and it was gone when I switched back. 

 

Edit: Got it 5 times in 30 minutes now...wtf. Does it automatically keep bugging you if you autopath a sailboat too long? I can't even -----ing get out of Ross Sea with this thing bugging me every 5 minutes.

I believe it's "hunting" your character.

This is how my guild on our galley encountered it. We were on our way back to the mainland from Margoria, and ended up in one of those torrential storms. A bit through it, even though we could hardly see it I managed to see the ship next to us. I didn't see any waterspouts, though.. but then again it was pitch black so even our player up on the crow's next couldn't see a thing.

I wasn't night, either.. as i'd heard they'd only pop up at night. This wasn't the case for us.

I don't know what it is but after the first time it kept happening every time I put autopath for even a minute. It seems to have stopped now though. 

At this rate i'm never going to -----ing get my Sailing up to skilled 1. If you make a skill that slow at least let us afk level it smh. Might have to start using fishing boat.. Weird thing is I sailed around for hours in Ross Sea and it only appeared once I got on Margoria territory.

It has more of a chance to appear in unpleasant weather (hurricanes/storms)

It can appear in any sea that has the fogged minimap png. Someone posted it earlier, that they get the best sailing exp sailing on the edge of ross that's two paces from being in peyon sea? It's near epheria..http://imgur.com/ep64vO3
I forgot who posted it, but you can try there?

Well I made it out of Margoria and Ross Sea and now i'm back in Ross Sea without any issues so far. I doubt xp is any different in certain locations but i'll have a look at that area thanks

Seemly random, with the higher chance in stormy weather like was mention above by Feonie. I can go a couple of hours or see them one right after another. 

If you do not want to fight them on your personal ship then channel swap, go to character select etc will make it despawn. Guild ships are pinned until either your ship or it is destroyed/boarders killed, or you remote collect the ship ( for 10m repair cost :o  eek! ). 

I have been getting mostly 1g bars and Conquest seals along with one stray Golden Pearl for loot so far. And somethings nothing at all drops...

Yeah i'm gonna keep an eye out for the stormy weather... It seems to be the game's way of checking if you're afk sailing by spawning a tornado in your path, and if you don't respond it sends the phantom ship. That's my guess anyway
