Market pay Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I see no reason for the vast majority of players to ever take market jobs on uncolonized islands. Since their pay is essentially stuck on the island until/unless they can persuade an officer of a crew to take them to the island and back home again, during which time they have a good chance of losing that pay to pillage anyway, why would they ever choose to do it?

Unless you trade of course - I'm quite happy to trade someone money on a market island and bury it, then give it back to them on Alpha, Turtle or Guava....saves me carrying extra money around, or being short when there's a fantastic find ;-)

But I think that the vast majority of players would prefer their wages to go into their home bank account instead; I have found people saying they've been waiting for ages for a player ship to go to Winter Solstice or Papaya so that they could get their pillaging gains home! If anyone's stuck like that, send any of my alts a /tell and I'll sort it for you as quick as I can.
