    Default Suggestion: Ships!

    My suggestion

    I was thinking about adding ships in this game for differend reasons:
    - The world in Rift is located on a big island.
    - Travelling by ship is fun.
    - Ship combat pvp would be cool in this game.


    For travelling
    The world in Rift atm is located on a big island. Trion could add harbors in differend places where you could travel between them by ship. Also, when Trion would add an expansion with a whole new Islands you could also travel between them by ship.

    For example:

    What about a PvP sea area?
    When I saw this movie ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cld6TlTmUlE ), I was thinking of what Tempest Deeps would be. Imo it could be a PvP sea-area.

    For example:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1WRk...eature=related

    What about outdoor sea bosses,...?
    Once the game would have ship combat, maybe it would be also cool to have outdoor sea-bosses or some enemy pirate race.

    For bosses: You will need to reach them by ship and you will have to fight against them.(and get some loot/achievement)
    For those enemies: If they see you, they will attack you!

    For example:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBOHC...eature=related
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1WRk...eature=related

    Which mmorpgs does have ships?
    Darkfall
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBOHC...eature=related

    Vanguard
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3sKfb...eature=related
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olcc-...eature=related

    Archeage

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1WRk...eature=related

    I'm pretty sure there are more things to add once (combat)ships are ingame, but these are the thing I'm thinking of atm.

    Anyway, it's just a suggestion!

    (sorry for my bad english)

    Ships would be good but only if they were made like in Vanguard, where they're built by crafters and where there are navigable rivers so the boats can be used for travelling between zones.

    I've no experience with that, so I don't know if it would work.

    Nice ideas. I'd personally rather have wings, unless the ships are powered by magitech and sail in rivers of fire, death, and sky. The world of Rift is not just a big island. It includes a myriad of planes that intersect into it. Just my two cents.

    Very well-done post, OP. However, I really don't see Rift's world supporting that type of thing. First and foremost, as far as I know, we don't have ANY port cities (maybe added in expansion?) and secondly that would probably require another profession for people to make boats. There are already enough professions as there is, we don't need anymore. Unless it's some universal profession that everyone can take, that doesn't require us using up one of our slots.

    The Rift world certainly has enough water for it, though. However, as of right now, there is only one landmass, and it would feel really strange just doing battle around it. Adding islands, maybe another landmass, that would definitely make things better. They'd also have to do away with almost all of the fatigue areas currently in the game.

    I wouldn't be so sure there is only one landmass on Telera. I suspect there are more.

    This would go perfectly with bowfishing.

    The problem I foresee with this is getting people to actually use the ships. Sounds great on paper, but what you're proposing would be more hassle than just using portals, and people who play MMOs generally don't like hassle. This would be cool if they changed the core concept of the game with an expansion pack, which would have to be focused entirely on sea exploration, sea travel, sea combat, etc. in order to force players into the whole boat idea.

    I would go drunken fishing on my ship... and perhaps kill people if I encountered them on their ship.

    Port Scion? If this is the only port, what was the point? There has to be other landmasses. Or another port past the Byriel Shelf.
