< Player-owned port

Not to be confused with ship upgrades.

Port upgrades consist of buildings and decorations can be built or upgraded to offer increased bonuses to different areas of the port's operations. Each upgrade is separate and distinct from its previous upgrade meaning that bonuses from previous upgrades do not carry over or stack with the new upgrade unless specifically stated.

BarEdit

The bar, located northwest of the entrance portal, is owned by Surula and is used to attract captains and adventurers. On Thursdays, players can talk to Surula for a gossip voyage. This upgrade affects the Port Upgrades score in the Captain's Log. There are three types of bars (sinister, nautical, luxurious) in the highest tier of upgrades. A possible 2 upgrade points and 20 port score can be gained from this tier. Players will gain one upgrade point and 10 port score if they build the sinister bar. Upgrading again to the nautical or luxurious bar will reward the player the remaining upgrade point and 10 port score. Alternatively, players can build the nautical or luxurious bar first (skipping the sinister bar) and earn 2 upgrade points and 20 port score at one time, thus saving the player some resources. Upgrading between the nautical bar and luxurious bar does NOT affect any scores. However, one upgrade point and 10 port score will be lost if the refurbished bar is rebuilt.

WorkshopEdit

The workshop, located in the northeast corner of the port, is unlockable by reaching the Hook region of the Eastern Lands. Once built, the building consists of a workbench, anvil, bank box, scrimshaw crafter, and cooking station. The workbench and anvil can be found just outside the building. This upgrade affects the Port Upgrades score in the Captain's Log.

Note: Experience boosts from upgrades are only applied when making trade good specific items such as bonus smithing experience for making tetsu armour and bonus fletching experience for creating scrimshaws. The boost does not apply to any regular skilling inside of the workshop.

LodgingsEdit

Lodgings, located in the southeast corner of the port, attract better crew members when upgraded. This upgrade affects the Port Upgrades score in the Captain's Log. There are three types of lodgings (cutthroat, nautical, luxurious) in the highest tier of upgrades. A possible 2 upgrade points and 20 port score can be gained from this tier. Players will gain one upgrade point and 10 port score if they build the cutthroat lodgings. Upgrading again to the nautical or luxurious lodgings will reward the player the remaining upgrade point and 10 port score. Alternatively, players can build the nautical or luxurious lodgings first (skipping the cutthroat lodgings) and earn 2 upgrade points and 20 port score at one time, thus saving the player some resources. Upgrading to the cutthroat lodgings after the fact does NOT decrease any scores. However, one upgrade point and 10 port score will be lost if the daredevil lodgings are rebuilt.

ShipwrightEdit

The shipwright, located in the southwest corner of the port, improves the total adversity percentages of all the player's ships. The bonuses are applied to the ship's total stats (including those added by the crew and captain), not just the stats of the ship itself. There are three types of shipwrights (warship, luxurious, sleek) in the highest tier of upgrades. A possible 2 upgrade points and 20 port score can be gained from this tier. Players will gain one upgrade point and 10 port score if they build the warship shipwright. Upgrading again to the luxurious or sleek shipwright will reward the player the remaining upgrade point and 10 port score. Alternatively, players can build the luxurious or sleek shipwright first (skipping the warship shipwright) and earn 2 upgrade points and 20 port score at one time, thus saving the player some resources. Subsequently building a warship or nautical shipwright decreases your building upgrade count and port score by 1 and 10 respectively.

WarehouseEdit

The warehouse, located in the northwest corner of the port, is the storage building for all of the player's goods. Upgraded warehouses give greater bonuses to voyage rewards. This upgrade affects the Port Upgrades score in the Captain's Log. The warehouse also is home to Felix The Black Marketeer, who allows players to spend gold coins on resource goods such as Bamboo and Chimes. He can also repair ships instantly, negating the normal waiting period.

Totem hotspotsEdit

There are five types of totems that can be built in any of the four hotspots. Each type of totem provides a unique bonus to the port. Players can build more than one of each type, and the effects DO stack. This upgrade does NOT affect the Port Upgrades score in the Captain's Log.

  • Totem hotspot 1 is located west of the portal
  • Totem hotspot 2 is located south-east of the warehouse
  • Totem hotspot 3 is located between the bar and office

Icon hotspotsEdit

The three icon hotspots, at the south ends of the three piers, increase the chance of attracting different adventurers to the port. Each icon costs 1000 chimes to build. The player may build more than one of the same kind of icon. However, it is unknown at this time if the bonus chance stacks for more than one. This upgrade does NOT affect the Port Upgrades score in the Captain's Log.

  • Icon Hotspot 1 is located on the west pier
  • Icon Hotspot 2 is located on the middle pier
  • Icon Hotspot 3 is located on the east pier

Portal hotspotEdit

Portal upgrades change the look of the portal both inside the port and outside in Port Sarim. These changes are cosmetic only and have no effect on the performance of the port. Buying a certain cosmetic style does NOT unlock it for unlimited use. For example, if you purchase the Ornate Portal for 250 bamboo and then switch back to the Standard Portal design, it will cost you 250 bamboo once again to switch back to the Ornate Portal design. This upgrade does NOT affect the Port Upgrades score in the Captain's Log.

Nautical portal Nautical 1,000 Gunpowder icon

TriviaEdit

  • The examine text of the trap icon is "It's a trap!", referencing the well-known Star Wars quote from Admiral Ackbar.
