Naval caravans

Alpha-1 Niküa naval caravan 3D render.[8]

Caravans are capable of transitioning from land to naval caravans. So if you start out as a land-based Caravan and you move to the coast and you want to move into the water there's gonna be a little transition period there; it's gonna be a little construction kind of site: You're not gonna have to do anything it's just gonna be a timer right so that you can't quickly move between land and water. It's gonna be probably in the matter of you know a minute to two minutes. There's a little bit of vulnerability in that regard.[9]Steven Sharif

Ship building

Ship building is a crafting profession that is able to construct ship components based on blueprints that unlock capabilities that scale with their progression within the ship building profession.[14][5][15]

  • Movement, Durability, Speed, Turn rate, Hit points, Defensive and Damage abilities.[14][5][15]
  • Aesthetic customization.[15]
  • Ship components can be sold to other players.[14]

A player does not need to be a ship builder to construct ships. Players utilize the ship components that are crafted by ship builders to upgrade their ships.[14][16]

  • Anyone with the right schematics, materials and an advanced enough node may construct a ship.[17]

Mariner classes

Mariner classes (also referred to as boatsmanship classes, boatsman skills or seamanship) contain different skill trees arranged in a similar manner to Artisan classes. As a player gains experience in these different skills they become more adept at using them.[21]

You can spec into and kind of create your own class based on what things you're doing on the boat... It's gonna be very similar to in structure to like the artisanship trees, so you'll you'll have your mariner class: You'll have different trees in that class.[21]Jeffrey Bard
