Pirate attack during boat transit event

Post by Unangwata » Wed Sep 16, 2020 5:59 pm

How about first time you use boat to travel continents you get pirate attack event and quests there ?
I don't know if it's possible but seems fun.
Or not first time but random.

Can you explain your vision of how it works a bit more? The boats depart from port A, move a bit then teleport you to a different boat approaching port B. Does the pirate attack happen during that? Do you get teleported into a different place first between port A and B..?

yeah something like that. Boat departs from a port, and instead of teleporting you into another ordinary boat, you are spawned at event boat with npc and pirate attack. I'm not technical devs would know better how to do it. And before departing from the event you could wait until there is original boat available at your destination so you end up there.
Or simply teleport you back without concern for destination.

Not sure about this. Firstly people from all levels use boats. What level do you make these mobs? Make it 60 and only 60 players will be able to use boats, make it any less and it just becomes an annoyance that you have to do sometimes when you are 60, and for the lower level players it may still be too difficult.

High(ish) level pirates could attack BB ... high enough so they don't right away get killed by guards. But are such random attack events possible?

i like the general idea however not for public boat transports. maybe we could think of a really cool quest idea that has this scripted event.

There is a pirate attack quest in Azshara that I think only 1% of WoW's players ever do. It's not during boat transit but it's a pirate attack, could do something similar but in a boat.

Death From Below
I need you to remain up here with me to fend off the attack. Man the cannon and drive them back.

Ooh! Maybe you can board as well! It could be a timed dungeon!

Absolutely not possible in any early WoW client.
