Location Marker?

Hi K.I. I have a question, will there ever be a mark location button like in W101? It can be a little frustrating when you just paid a thousand gold to get to Aquila, and one of your friends calls for help in cool ranch. A mark location button would solve this problem as we could just mark the location, help our friend, and teleport right back. I know the "Go to skull island" button is similar, but it's just not the same, as you can't leave skull island without losing your spot. If you would consider implementing this feature, I would very much appreciate it!

Yea I agree. There are times that no matter how hard I try it still gets annoying trying to help others out and not let your budget get too low, especially when you are in hyper training mode.

Excellent idea, I'd love for it to be implemented on Pirate101 too!

I fully support this idea. I think the reason they may have not implemented this feature is to have a bit of realism. In Wizard101, because you're a wizard, you can teleport and use spells and stuff, but in Pirate101, as a pirate, you are less magical than the wizards. I was just trying to think of some reason KingsIsle didn't add this. It's a pretty bad reason, because out Pirates CAN teleport, to an extent.

Maybe instead of a blue marker it could be a your flag on a pole like in the docks. Just to keep it more piratey.

I agree with you 110%. This is one of the things that I always thought would be a great addition to the game. The ability to use mark and recall to return to a location of your choosing would be very useful for sure.

Along with that feature I would love to see the ability to set a secondary location flag to any map. That way if there was a certain boss you wanted to concentrate on farming for a while, you could flag it's location, go do some questing or help out others without having to worry about forgetting which of the many locations throughout the spiral your target is at . A smaller arrow of a different color could be placed inside the normal, yellow current quest arrow and it would lead you to your secondary location. You could of course change this location at your discretion and place on your next targeted location.

I think these are both features that could and should be implemented and would be well received by everyone. They are both features similar to what is used in The Elder Scrolls series, like Oblivion and Skyrim, and in my opinion are fantastic in-game tools that would be very useful to the players.

like monkey king said: "two steps forward, three stormgates back". have you tried going through monquista? its huge. if you could mark i would use that. would save a lot of time after losing against a boss. at least now the return button that comes when you go home or to skull island helps... a little
