Beelzebub

So, i was messing around on a sloop today, and I engaged a random brigand War Frig, but the war frig was not normal, it had a very interesting rename. Even Aphrodite was puzzled by this ship.



Any idea what this is?

Re: Beelzebub

Very interesting, I had a conversation with Aphrodite about the very same ship, regarding the same circumstances. I later /bugged it, but am happy to know that somebody else encountered it (as silly
/me forgot to take a screenie.)

It engaged us, which in itself was interesting, at about 7pm pirate time. When did you see it?

Edit: My first theory was that it was some kind of Atlantean-controlled ship wrested from defenders after a losing fray, although the bots steering it suggested something else...

Collective craziness?

Re: Beelzebub

Edited for your soul's sake : D

Disclaimer: These posts in no way determine my spiritual beliefs. As far as I know, Satan was never aboard a pirate ship pillaging for PoE. Nor am I positive that our PoE can be saved by holy water. I just figured it was worth a shot. kkthxbai : D

Re: Beelzebub

Can I ask what color the might ring was, as well as how many pirates you had aboard (were they elite or not), and any details, however small, about this particular trip leading up to the encounter? i.e. exactly what did you have in your hold?

Re: Beelzebub

The might ring, I believe, was a light-kinda green, however, this surprised me as we were on a non-elite hard-very hard pilly(the scurvy dog who stole my blige station was able, as were a few others out of twenty or thirty) and thus green circles don't usually attack you...

The rest of the info is pretty easy, as we had very recently deported and carried only rum and shot. (This seems not to be a case of fruity attraction, a la BKs.)

Disappointing thing was, though they were ranked imperials, they only gave us 50 poe per pirate in booty, through BOTH times that they attacked us and lost. (Not much to save there, Gimbo)

I sent off the crew name in the bug report and to Aphrodite, but remember being mezmarized by its creepy SH-SH alliteration...(or so I remember)

This is what happened. The dragoons overtook a renamed ship that was painted black, and now they're running amuck.

Re: Beelzebub

For the record, what you have in your hold has no bearing on anything regarding spawn. The belief that fruit in your hold attracts BKs is a myth, and is not true.

There is a small impact on payouts based on PoE in the hold.

So if I have 200k and 12 KB's in the bootychest, a million idiots from the local inn wont materialize and try to pvp me? I hate people who engage and then suck, at least put up a good fight :(

Old salts are chaotic at best.; I have seen them say a ship carrying nothing is carrying a large amount. My main point was that carrying fruit does not increase your chances of attracting a BK.

Re: Beelzebub

This ship is Scabard's. He had it in Atlantis once. When I left the ship, he had a lot of dragoons on it. Maybe it's taken over, but it was indeed a ship owned by Scabard. I've been on it. Shame to lose it, though. Renamed and colored black/black and neatly furnished.

Ah, I didn't know that ships you lost to drags would later be seen pillaging with Brigands. Its unfortunate that there is no way to get it back. It would be fun to be able to like /vwho taken over vessels, and then if you go hunt them down, they will be full of drags. If you win then the deed and all the TH poe that was on the ship go into the booty. Well, its fun to imagine.

Why was he taking a furnished, renamed, black/black ship into Atlantis in the first place, though?

I was with Scabard at the time. He did take that frig in atlantis it was painted Black/Black and furnished. There were 60 dragoons and 57 of us and we lost so they took the ship. Guess they make it for pillying now.
