Captains of Adventure

Ship and Pirate Milestone Balancing

  • Following player feedback and internal review, the requirements to progress the Classes of certain Ship and Pirate Milestones have been adjusted. Read more about the changes here.

Fixed Issues

Captains of Adventure

  • As Captains set sail in a new gameplay session, they will now find that the ship’s history in the Captain’s Logbook shows correct values for Gold Earned, Islands Visited and Nautical Miles Sailed.

  • Players who experience an unsuccessful ship purchase will no longer be returned to the Ship Type selection screen.

  • Captains can now consistently discard Voyages from the Captain’s Bookshelf.

  • Sybil the shipwright at the Glorious Sea Dog Tavern now asks Captains to wait after purchasing supplies before additional items are offered.

Insider Rewards

  • Insiders who are eligible for the Sapphire Blade Sails will now find them in the Ship Customisation Chest.

Known Issues

Saved Ship Customisations Not Persisting

  • Captains may find that saved customisations such as ship liveries and decorations do not always persist between sessions.

Ship and Pirate Milestones Temporarily Disabled

  • The following Milestones have been temporarily disabled and will not progress when the relevant actions are completed:

    • Quest Board Maps Completed – Ship and Pirate Milestones

    • Captained Ships Spotted – Ship and Pirate Milestones

    • Provisions Sold to The Hunter's Call – Ship and Pirate Milestones

    • Sea Forts Conquered – Ship and Pirate Milestones

    • Repairs Made – Pirate Milestone Only

Captain’s Stash Voyages Temporarily Unavailable

  • Captain’s Stash Voyages offered by the shipwrights are temporarily unavailable.

Reduced Server Performance 

  • Players may experience scenarios where they encounter ping spikes at random while playing, resulting in rubberbanding or client stutters. While improvements were most recently released in update 2.5.3, the team continue to work on further improvements for future updates.

Ranged and Melee Weapon Hit Detection

  • In areas of intense action, players may find themselves firing shots or landing strikes that do not cause damage to their targets. While small improvements continue to be delivered during our regular updates, we are continuing to investigate and identify further improvements to the player combat experience.
