From there, complete customization is accomplished through the comprehensive skill tree containing over 80 abilities.
Players have the choice between light, medium and large layouts – overall there are more than 40 types selectable in the game.
Depending on the chosen categories, ship properties differ vastly from each other:
- Light ships are fast and agile, but have few health points.
- Large ships are near unsinkable, but very slow and portly.
- Medium ships offer a balance mix of strengths and weaknesses.
- Rare and high-level ships give players bonuses for various specifications - for example more powerful attacks.
In addition to the many properties, the ship types also differ visually from each other. Because of this, a great optical variety on the oceans of Kartuga is guaranteed.
While leveling up, players unlock an increasing number of consumable and equipment slots on their ships, which can then be filled with various items. Several types of cannons, special ammunition, and a number of offensive and defensive consumables are just the beginning - ship layouts can also be equipped. Therefore, it is even possible to change ship types on the fly to another stored in dock slots. On top of that, five types of crew members can be equipped and provide ships with additional bonuses, according to their role on board: Carpenters for example make the ships more durable, while Gunners improve weapon and skill properties.
