Good morning fellow sailors,

Started this new character, saw 3 giftpackages with lvl 10 ships.
But all these ships need lvl 91 voyage to sail isnt it?

Is there a way to get voyage xp besides:
- lvling raider from 0 - 9 doing discoveries
- afking at high seas with xp scrolls.
- going in storms

Thanks for helping me out.

BTW, another question: which of the 4 servers is most active?

Thanks again

That is where that ability gold comes in handy... what I have done on a few new characters is to work up all the easy skills that I can to lvl 31 and promote them, and then use ability gold for the ones that are a pain to raise up but that are needed in game. As far as active servers I think right now MMP is the most active.

Ability gold = rare gold?

Looks the same, but no.

You get Ability Gold with a new character, you get Rare Gold from instances/quests/drops/exploration points. Rare Gold isnt used for much any more.

Well when you create a new character you get 4 Ability gold, with these you go to an NPC in Athens next to the ramp at the port and you can exchange these for skill books, these books after right clicking will make your skill level 100. so it gives you 4 Ability gold and you can exchange it for 4 types of skill books of your choice, I hope this helped you. pop up if you have another question. f01

So if I understand correctly, I can just promote the regular 8 skill to 2nd phase.
4 other skill that I need in 2nd (and 3rd) phase anyways, like VOY, ELO, SB and BH, I can always pimp them to skillvl 100 with the ability gold?

Voyage is already phase 2, no need there, but it's slow to level and you need it for ships so its a good one to use gold on.
You can take 8 to phase 2 without ability gold, 7 free, 8th costs 5mil.
You can use the ability gold to get phase 2 and instant lvl 100 in a 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th (only 11 if you put one on voyage).
So if you want to use it on the 4 you mentioned, you can get 11 phase 2 skills.
Leaving you with 7 skills to take to 31 first.
At least 1 weapon, other weapons for skill stacking/fun, medicine and alchemy for healing, sewing and foundry for reducing durability loss, shipbuilding for ship repair, fishing for ship load, other gathering skills for SP/character load... take your pick and plan it. Then promote them all before using any ability gold.

I did not realize Voyage was automatically phase 2....
Ill have to make a new character to confirm that.

What is not 100% clear above is:
you must train and promote your 8 skills to phase 2 THEN use your ability gold on the other skills you want to take to phase 2..
(that is why he says 9th 10th etc)
otherwise your ability gold will be used AND count as one as your free (or 8th for 5 million) promotions.

Ah I see, yes that sounds obvious indeed. Well I will just start with playing and when I reach the point from what I think skillvl goes too slow I bash a abb gold into it.

thanks all for the info.
