I hated helping out the bison spirits so I wish they would shorten that or minimize the bum balloon fights.

Hello and welcome back to the message boards friend!

All in all I actually very much enjoyed all of Cool Ranch, especially the journey through it. I understand that Pirates would get impatient after 4 whole books in the same Stormgate, but I don't mind at all, since that means more story for me :)
If there were one place in particular I'd have to shorten, it would be Miranda. An obvious choice would be to cut down on the cards but I'm not sure that it'd be an easy task for KI, since all of the card quests are actually quite fun and very interesting. In fact I'd say Miranda is the most interesting and fun place in Cool Ranch- it's a LITERAL ghost town! My suggestions would be take out the beginning fight with the Skeletal pirates, and the fight with the ghost of the mayor [I believe he was the mayor, or maybe a sheriff or governor]. Maybe shortening the Mag 7 Quest by finding an easier way to get to Billy the Kid [because I swear to god those fights took me SOOO many tries because I'm bad], but again it wouldn't be too easy for KI to just take out a whole chunk of Cool Ranch.
Hope you have a fantastic week!

I would cut out the English Bill story completely; what purpose does he serve in the storyline?

I imagine that he connects back to darkmoore (if/when that is released), that's how some classes get characters like Tonka, and he has some pretty good loot. He is collaborating with Deacon, meaning the armada is involved, which could come into the story later.

I feel like the bisons were way too dependant on us so I would shorten the time kith the bisons
Also I would shortened the whole of the first skyway it's a while before you actually establish yourself in another skyway

I really liked Cool Ranch -- I would not shorten any more if it than has already gotten the chop.

Overall, Cool Ranch imo was pretty cool. The theme especially Doritos....... Jk

If I could shorten one aspect of Cool Ranch, it would be to decrease ship battles and bumbleoon fights. Also, I'd like to maybe shorten our time in Arroyo Grande. To me, going there seems a little bit redundant or pointless. That's just me though. I'm sure others enjoyed it

I LOVE Cool Ranch very much but it just took me a while to complete it.

I would shorten Part 1 of Cool Ranch which is the Duck of Death storyline, it was REALLY long and even more longer than Tumbleweed and Haunted.

Definitely Port Regal and some parts of the Duck of Death chapter, and maybe some parts in the Magnificent Seven chapter.

I honestly like Cool Ranch as it is, reasonably adventurous, no need to cut down on adventures & story.

Wait... actually, there is something that could use some shortening... during the side quest, "Basic Training", in Fort McMurtry, one of it's quest goals had us battling against Sky Snake Queens in Haunted Skyway, & it was a big pain & a struggle to defeat 6 Sky Snake Queens. I think that should be changed to have us battling any type of Sky Snakes in the Haunted Skyway, including the Bone Snakes & regular Sky Snakes. That would be a big breather.

I think Cool Ranch was about the right length where as Monquista, Valencia, Mooshu, Marelybones and Aquila were far too short. I really got into Cool Ranch myself and became obsessed with finding Captain Blood. Best storyline so far I think?

but if you`d switch cr and valencia, cr would have to be longer then the current valencia is.

I would say the number of ships to be defeated in a sidequest.It involves to defeat two different factions and the number is very high,for a sidequest. At least do the same for the sidequests,like balance the difficulty.

For the main quest, no offense however if it got any easier than it is now.It might annoy veteran players and might say " What happened to the challenges ? " For now in my opinon,it's a balanced challenge for veteran and new players alike.

Ahoy there pirates!
Cool Ranch was a pretty fun world, especially at the end, but I would shorten Big Sky. The totem hunting took a pretty long time. Also, The amount of ship battles should be cut down. A lot of them are just extra battles.
