What happens to a ship when everyone leaves at sea? Reply to this Post

What happens to a ship if everyone leaves while it is at sea?

(I know I bootched searching this time; I couldn't even find the "Have a question? Ask a searcher" thread. "have question ask" returned nothing.)

Long John.

The ingame search term is ghost ship or abandoned at sea. I'm not sure as to the in game ramifications.

A ship returns to the island it last left after being abandoned at sea for a while. Any booty will be lost. If the ship is abandoned during battle, the appropriate amount will be removed for the loss.

If all players leave the ship, the swabbies will also leave and the hiring notice is taken down.

Umm when did this change?

To my knowledge is that is if the ship is abandoned during battle against a NPP ship nothing is taken. This was a tactic of mine back when learning how to defeat the Black Ship. To save it stealing all your goods you just had to abandon ship. I have not tried this thou with Player boats.

As to abandoning whilst out of battle. Everything that was on the boat stays on the boat except for Gems.

The boat takes about 15 minutes to return to the last port it visited.
