I'm partial to the Darkmoor ships around Boot Hill. They're eerie and spooky, yet somehow elegant too with their grand sweeping curves.

Ahoy FrogFather,
To answer your current question, I'd have to say that the Mooshu ships are really my favorite. Not only are they very intricate in style and detail, they really keep to the whole style the I've come to love about Mooshu. Mooshu in itself is a very pretty and diverse in the whole Asian style I love. If I have to pick any Ship in the spiral it would be these. Although I have all of the Mooshu ships, I am really enjoying my Royal Navy Galleon. Mostly because it is currently the most powerful and strongest ship in the spiral, so it makes it fun to run around and help others including my girlfriend and brother, defeat any ship in the spiral with fashion.
I play a lot with my different chars, but find myself going back to my first Swashbuckler at max level quite often to farm and help other low lvl pirates. In the new worlds to come I can only hope that you can develop ever more elaborate and beautiful ships. I look forward to seeing these new additions and worlds and wish you all the best in building these new and exciting Worlds and ships.. Take Care FrogFather , I hope to see you again in the spiral and wish you all the greatest adventures.. YARRRRRR
Sincerely,
Black Finnigan Hobbes , Silent Kai Nightengale

Definitely the darkmoor ships in cool ranch! I like thir dark colors and all the pointy edges that make it look positively dastardly. I would love to have a ship like that.

I like the paddle steamers that certain enemies have in Cool Ranch. They are cool looking and unique. They would be a neat style to have for my pirate (maybe someday?).

My best mob eh? I have been a big fan of my marleybone galleon. I call her The Majestic Enchantress. It was named after the prow that can summon sirens to destroy enemy ships. She is SO well built, not even the Armada can sink her. If you happen upon me in the skyways (but not right now since I'm waiting for the new expansion) I'll help you with any quest you got.

Hello Frogfather my favorite mob ship would be the Valencian ships in Mooshu because they are fairly strong andd I love the animation when you destroy their ship.

I personally prefer Jade Fleet Ships in Subata Skyway, Mooshu just because they give pretty good Nautical XP as well as the best ship parts for my ship and nautical level. I simply adore ship fighting, so I can't get enough of it! When stitching comes to the pirate towns, I will be farming elsewhere to collect more gear that I can use for the look of my ship. :D

Have a great weekend!

Mine is the Marleybonian Galleons cause it gives hope Marleybone will be the next world and plus it's pretty big. I bet we would have four rooms on two floors when we get ship cabins.

I personally like the Ghost Ships because they look really cool and have really good and cool powers. Being able to have one would make my life.

For me it's a four-way tie:

1. Armada Ships, even though they belong to our worst enemies, they are just so magnificent with their golden hulls and black sails.

2. Black Storm Raiders: very beautiful ships with great sails and oars to propel them through the skyway.

3. Marleybonian Ships: I trully don't know why, I just love the names of their ships and how they look so proud and regal. I almost feel ashamed that we started the war between them and the Armada

4. Mooshu Ships: The huge lanterns give the ships that wonderful Chinese/Japanese flair.

Oh yeah, one of my favorite NPCs comes to life....

Greetings Frogfather, this offer I cannot refuse.

To be honest its real hard to pinpoint a single form of mob ship, they all have advantages.

Probably the mob ships I have found most beneficial to my overall game play are the Black Storm Raider ships in Cool Ranch. These ships help us raise our nautical levels quite a bit and really start dropping advanced equipment that we can use almost immediately, as well as in the future as our pirates continue to level.

Ships at that level really help to launch us along in the ship battling part of the game. Although there have been adjustments, this has remained true (imo) since we were in closed beta.

There are mobs later on that are excellent for nautical leveling and gear as well, but IMO they are less of an impact being further along in the game (this may change as we get content updates).

Personally, I really like the armada ships with the circular spinning sails in the aragon skyway because they not only look pretty neat but they also show just how vast and advanced the technological power of the armada truly is in all honesty. I also like the darkmoor/ghost ships as I just feel that they're perfect for the crew they have on board them if you really think about it.

I've always been partial to the big riverboat steamship (named/bosses dierdre or midnight cowboy) models. They're large and visually exciting. Hull wise monquistan ships capture elegance and wealth just fine (just like the spanish) quite well even if they're small. If I was to choose based on sail looks and design it's hands down the bison choices by far. The only interesting sails and variety in the game are on the extra lights and the bisons sadly.

I like the Imperial Jade ships in Subata because they give AWESOME nautical experience. I only wish they were a bit weaker so that my Mooshu Galleon, the Imperial Dragon, could sink one without fleeing this its stern (or whatever the back of a ship is called) on REALLY hot fire. (Those Fire Drakes and Phenioxes are no joke)

I favorite would probably be the armada vanguard ships in Valencia.

Community Leader
Of course the Frogfather's syndicate ships that block passages to Flotsam Skyway are my favorite. Capeesh? Bada bing bada boom!

All joking aside ~ My favorite mob ships are the Darkmoore ships near Boothill. I hope to see their homeland soon enough!

I think the ships in Mooshu have the best visual design. My favorite ships to fight though are the various bosses scattered around the skyways. Not the unsinkable ones, but the ones like Captain Zirconia or Mack the Shark. They provide unique challenges and are just fun to fight.

Lots of nice ones. Let me see...

Probably, first, the Armada ships.

Second, the Darkmoor ships.

Third... either the ghost ships or the Jade fleet ships.

My favorite mobs ships are the ones in Valencia. I guess I do have a favorite from each world though.

I don't know if they'd count, but I like the Water Mole Canoes. I remember thinking it was really neat to see the tiny water moles paddling their way across the sky (how does that work? magic) and was a bit disappointed that you can't fire your cannons at them. Still, I thought it was a fun addition to the already well designed Skull Island area to see those little guys.

For actual mob ship, I like the paddle wheels in Cool Ranch. It would be fun for the PC to be able to get one of those, though obviously it would take some specialized equipment.

I for one think that i love my Monquistain Skiff, but there can be more! Have you noticed that you can't get sort of like a Red Sash ship from Cool Ranch, or an Armada ship from Valencia? I want one of those. also, the troggies may be smelly and dumb, but they're smart enough to control a ship. i want the troggies to step out of the gold mine and skull mountain and come out in tradewinds or skull island skyway. i've always wanted to fight troggy ships where some of the floating creatures(for ex. jellyfish)are.
