The Wayfarer has always been a necessary ride to reach high level destinations, however, this waiting can be bland so much so that the sound track is literally elevator music. I propose an idea to make trips much more interesting, events.
Possible events aboard the Wayfarer:
Pirate raids - A ship comes by and pirates throw anchors onto the Wayfarer, everyone says the Wayfarer is great for adventure and this sure is going to be an adventure. Pirate raids should have a small percentage chance of happening, not too low so people don’t buy thousands of tickets to try get the loot from the raid but not too high so players don’t have to always sit through a raid. The raid will be friendly to level 30s while still posing risks to them. If you die in a pirate raid, you end up back at scallop shores. The raid will have good drops but not too good so getting a raid isn’t desired but acceptable. Stuff like the pirate hat might make a return. The raid will have a higher chance of happening the more players there are.
Kraken attacks - The Kraken is an ancient creature, legends say there was once a mage lived in scallop shores who summoned a Kraken to defend the shores from the Terror of the Deep. This Kraken, after defeating the Terror of the Deep, went berserk and started to attack scallop shores. With assistance from the great mage, the hunters managed to push the Kraken back into the ocean where it attacks ships that passes its territory for the rest of its life. Kraken attacks will be fast and unpredictable, will it drop loot? I suggest not but that’s up to the devs. A Kraken attack will scare off the pirates.
Thunderstorms - Thunderstorms are just a visual change that makes the ocean more violent with rocky waves shaking the ship a little but only a little. We don’t want any players getting flung off the ship accidentally. Thunderstorms will also send small waves to hit the ship possibly flinging afk players or players that aren’t too weary into the depths below. Thunderstorms increase the chance of a Kraken attack but lowers the chance of a Pirate raid.
Hopefully you devs see this, peace.
