Seafaring SPP Changes

First time poster, long time reader.

I awoke today, to see the SPP changes to seafaring, having finally decided and spent my last SPPs last month.
I found a piece of info posted here years ago that I found very helpful in deciding how to spend my SPPs and I have adapted it to include the new changes.

Some of you may be familiar with this OLD chart:

=======================================================================

With the New changes announced in ANNOUNCE NEWS #4568
I adapted that chart to this in order to be a useful reference tool as well as show a quick comparison of the SPPs . They've moved around.

    That's great, thanks for sharing (and making it more legible).


  • RaneRane Posts: 19Member
    thanks for that Jacero, it looked great in my notepad++ but not so great on screen.  Much appreciated

    Soooo now that we cant forceboard and we can only loot via swashies whats to prevent victim captains from quick reflex emptying the strongbox and ammo before the plundering is done??? This seems silly now.

    Recommendation: once swashies start plundering those commands to withdraw these things are disabled. However we would still need to be able to load ammo.

    Can't do anything with strongbox except when docked.

    So... what if you end up without enough gold to dock outside of harbour? :cold_sweat:

    Huh. Neat.

    You can only withdraw from the strongbox when docked, you can still deposit into the strongbox whenever.
