  10. With the key,  Мyou can open the world map and set an automatic route.


In sailing, you sail the sea, controlling a ship, not a character.

You can move the Ship by clicking. Use the key  Тto make the Ship move automatically.

As the ship moves, the "Maximum Speed" scale accumulates. Once it's full, use it as a bascule (7) Tecla definida to move the boat faster over some time.



Ship Moving At Full Speed

The Ship's "durability" runs out when it travels a certain distance, the decrease in durability increases when the Ship is in dangerous waters.

When the durability reaches 0, the Ship will be shipwrecked. It is impossible to go to the island or use any skill in this state.

If the durability is below a certain level, the Ship's movement speed increases due to the coordinated work of the sailors. To make your navigation more fluid, we recommend that you control the strength of your boat.




The sea is large enough compared to any continent in the game, and it can take a long time to move to a certain point.

For more efficient navigation, use automatic routing:

  • While navigating, open the world map and press (  Alt+ M ) on the destination, and the Ship will automatically start moving to the specified location.
  • If there is an obstacle in the way, the Ship automatically moves along the shortest path.
  • You can specify up to 4 destinations. If there are dangerous waters on the way, it is recommended to take a detour.
  • If you use some of the Ship's abilities or press a key  Тduring the autoroute, the movement will stop. Press the key  Тto resume automatic routing.
  • To completely cancel the route, click the "Cancel" button on the world map.
  • If you press the key  Тwithout selecting a destination, the Ship will move straight.




If you dock with the (Z) key in a port on any continent, you will be able to enter the port.

While in port, you can check various items needed to navigate, such as changing the ship/crew, changing the look, upgrading, and repairing the Ship.
