So I spawn on Ancient Spire, I think "Heck yeah, now I can get to Devil's Roar faster for Commendations"
I start stocking up on the island, and raise GH emissary to do the vault in DR for ashen items. Upon arriving on my ship, to my SW there's a T3 Reaper Emissary barreling towards me.
Two thoughts go through my head:
- Drop sail and haul butt to DR due to the headwind so my sloop can outpace them
- Drop Emissary and Skuttle
I went with the latter, and as they approached the island and realized the ship was skuttled they waited until a flag spawned.
Reaper then jumps into the water, wading around for the emissary flag, their other crew mate went ashore to gather supplies from MA.
Being the on my feet thinker I am, I go to board their ship and for the first time, tuck in their crow's nest.
They realized there's not a flag, so they board the ship and start sailing. Conveniently, I had a blunderbomb still in my inventory, so doing what any other troll would do to a sweaty crew and blundered them off their own ship, raided their cannonball barrles and set their ship ablaze.
I'd say a decent way to start the day yesterday LOL
