As part of the ArcheAge experience, I decided to dedicate some time to delivering a trade pack overseas to the Solzreed Peninsula. I can already tell this is going to end in my death.
As you can see, my only means of transportation across the sea is in the basic rowboat obtained through an early quest. Travel speed: 4.5 meters per second. Likelihood of success: none.
No stowaways! Thankfully ArcheAge has aggro limits and the Seabug got bored a couple minutes later. Maybe it’s not too late to enlist one of those teleporting hackers.
This guy wasn’t interested in what I was selling: A full load of being defenseless.
An hour later and I’m almost there! I can see the port in the distance.
The port is being blockaded by pirates. I’m dead, and the trade pack will probably be destroyed. Finished the quest.
