It's indeed been awhile since I've had a romp on the ghost ship. :pirate: I went looking for plunder and pistols, and only later discovered they weren't a very good weapon for me.

I've never liked the ghost ship.  There's no reliable way to get to it, and when you are on it, you have a high chance of falling off.  This, combined with the hard NPCs to kill on the ship make it a very non desirable place to go.

I'm open to (sensible) suggestions on how to make the ghost ship better. Whether it's making the chance of falling off a lot lower or some easier way to find it/get to it..

Either and item or a skill that can lead you to the ghost ship would be good.

Why does it knock people off?  I never understood why it does it

From what I remember, the idea was that you're living beings and when the ghost ship dematerialises during long distance movement, you can't "go" with it so you get dumped into the water.

That be fine if it was easier to find, but it's so tough that it just makes it discouraging.

Unless I've misread the code, people haven't been dumped off it since 2012.

If anyone does find it and then get dropped into the water, please let me know!

A couple of days ago, it was at [-70.071,+26.410]. It's still not far from there.

Unrelated note.

When killed inside the ghost ship, and directly respawn at a roaming shaman, you will respawn in Durham.

If you go outside the ship, and respawn at a roaming shaman, you will respawn at the correct place.
