  • There will be multiple classes of ships[19]
  • The class related to the vessel has a certain purpose both in battle, in PvE raids, in transportation [20]
  • Can Be destroyed by Players / Monsters[21]
  • Customizable components that affect weapons, defenses, utility, trade, and piloting. [22] [23]
  • You need to summon them ships land. So if something happens to your armada at sea you won’t have backups to just summon immediately in the fight again. Those battles are going to be meaningful, if you eliminate your opponent they won’t be able to get up and running again out at sea and will have to go to shore somewhere to some port or harbor. [24]
  • Ships can be hijacked. However, a trade ship must be destroyed to loot the contents. The trade ship cannot be hijacked to capture the loot. It must be destroyed to create a wreckage to capture loot. [25]
