1 Grinding is not an option: you don't have to focus on a combat class in fact you can have other players do it for you, hence creating a player mercenary system



2 Port Conquering: tho not yet implemented I am looking forward to it conquering other nations ports to improve your countries trade and economy.


3 Nations Alignment system: Wars will break out and traveling to a hostile nation players and NPC ships will be aggressive towards you


4 Exploration system: Gain exp simply by traveling and seeking out wildlife or discovering ruins of an ancient civilization



5 Realistic world map: Uses the map of the real world and visit real world destinations


6 Lots of real ships to choose from: Even more when the expansions come out a total of more than a hundred are available


7 Music composed by Yoko Kanno: One of the greatest music composers for Japanese RPG games


8 Thousands of quests: It is rumored to take atleast 3 years to finish them all and that's without the expansions



9 Historical reference: It makes use of real people from the time line of the voyage century




10 Real prizes: Netmarble gives away some really cool stuff no just in game items

How to raise shipwrecks with Indiana Jones!

Indiana Jones is a really great adventurer he even invited me for a quest to get gold armor. So when I asked him if he wanted to raise a shipwreck with me he said sure I've never done it before!
 
 
Step:1 In raising shipwrecks you can get items to craft ships and give them bonuses, Treasures that can be sold for a lot of money and discovery. you will need two items or two skills if your skill slots are full use the items.
 
 
 
 
 
Step2: Go to the place of the sunken ship, the world map of UWO is divided by waters so if you use the salvage skill and the ship is in the wrong place it will tell you it is not there.
 
Tip: If you have an aide he will say that you are close. If you set your aides duty no lookout and you are close to the target he will tell you that there is floating cargo and that you are very close to it! any aide will do
 
 !
 
If you are in the right waters rubbing the map with your cursor will reveal the X mark. In the PS3 version pressing X and ? will show the X mark ^_^
 
 
Step 3: When you finally use salvage and hit the right spot your ship will start pulling it up! take care tho depending on how large the wreck is you will take bigger damage! so having repair and carpentry tools is a good idea. Also having a fleet with other players gives you a combo bonus and helps haul the ship faster. they will be given loot also but not as large as the party leaders share.
 
Step 4: Once the ship is raised use haul skill or haul rope to tow it to the nearest dock. careful now sometimes hauling it in hostile waters enemy pirates will take it or the ship may be damaged when you get attacked or sail rough seas and lose the ship or get lesser treasure.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Step 5: One you reach the dock a new Icon will appear! you can enter the ship but if you are in a fleet wait for everyone to dock before clicking it or they will not be able to enter. One inside you will see some chests better have unlock skill or you wont be able to open them!
 
 
 
 
But be careful! if you get some good stuff robbers will come aboard and try to take them away!
 
 
 
Step 6: Finished! you have taken the treasure and prevented thieves from taking it away! the party leader now may exit the ship and take everyone with him back to sell the loot!
 
 
Tips: Its not always simple shipwrecks that are pulled up sometimes there are ghost ships where you have to fight before you can loot them. Famous ships that have sunk and make good discoveries too can be found some ships even have a time limit before it collapses! so better loot quick.
 
Hope you find this guide helpful!

Lisbon: The first true world city (Part.6) Capt.Aki's tour

Posted by UWO_NEWS Monday October 24 2011 at 12:35AM

After my failed attempt on the Columbus event I sailed back to my first stop Lisbon had a short break and took in some sights. Not much to eat in Lisbon but I'm glad to be back all I had on my way back to Europe were BaBa's papayas



Lisbon: (Portuguese: Lisboa; Portuguese pronunciation: [li??bo?]) is the capital and largest city of Portugal, Lisbon is recognized as an alpha city because of its importance in finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts, international trade, education, and tourism. It is one of the major economic centers on the continent, with a growing financial center and the largest/second largest container port in the "Europe's Atlantic coast

Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world. Julius Caesar made it a municipium called Felicitas Julia, adding to the name Olissipo. Ruled by a series of Germanic tribes from the fifth century, it was captured by the Moors in the eighth century. In 1147, the Crusaders under Afonso Henriques reconquered the city for the Christians and since then it has been a major political, economic, and cultural center of Portugal. Unlike most capital cities, Lisbon's status as the capital of Portugal has never been granted or confirmed officially – by statute or in written form. Its position as the capital has formed through constitutional convention, making its position as de facto capital a part of the Constitution of Portugal


President Baldi - Sadly my first stop was a dud Mr.Baldi here is a generic NPC since he has no first name there doesn't seem to be a president Baldi in Google too this guy is a poser!



The Skills that can be learned from President Baldi are:

Mineral Trading (Skill) = 8,000 Ducats
Food Trading (Skill) = 7,000 Ducats
Italian (Language) = 1,000 Ducats

If anyone can tell me who this guy is I'll gladly update the info.






The Gods must be crazy

Nzinga Mbemba (c. 1456 - 1542 or 1543), also known as King Afonso I was a ruler of the Kingdom of Kongo in the first half of the 16th century. He reigned over the Kongo Empire from 1509 to late 1542 or 1543.


After the arrival of the Portuguese, Afonso was assigned to rule Kongo's northern province of Nsundi where he was accompanied by a number of Portuguese priests. He was successful in his rule there, extending Nsundi's borders north of the Congo River. According to Afonso's account of events, his father lost interest in Christianity toward the end of his reign. Afonso, on the other hand, became a devout Christian. Intrigues at court, caused the king to doubt his son, and he was deprived of his province. Eventually Afonso regained his father's trust and was returned to the province.



The Skills that can be learned from Nzinga Mbemba are:

Collection (Skill) = 4,000 Ducats
Fishing (Skill) = 3,000 Ducats
Swahili (Language) = 10,000 Ducats



Another one! Lisbon is full of them



Admiral Diaz - This guy is another random NPC I can't even imagine how many admiral Diaz is there during this era.



The Skills that can be learned from Admiral Diaz are:

Surveying (Skill) = 4,000 Ducats
Rowing (Skill) = 5,000 Ducats
Spanish (Language) = 1,000 Ducats
 


"Axe"

Belem - Saint Jeronimos Monastery Magnificent Portuguese monument in Belem - beautiful example of late European Gothic and Portuguese Manueline architecture. Built in shimmering white limestone adding to Lisbon's reputation as the White City.

Exquisite maritime motifs in cloisters and church pillars recalling Portugal's maritime history. Vast church with carved tombs including Queen Catarina Filipa of Castile resting on marble elephants. The tusks were made from first ivory brought back from India. Beautiful tombs of National Poet Camoes and famous Portuguese Explorer Vasco da Gama. Lisbon History


The Castle of São Jorge (Portuguese: Castelo de São Jorge; Portuguese pronunciation: [k???t?lu d? s??w? ?????(?)]) is a moorish castle that occupies a commanding position overlooking the city of Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, and the broad Tagus River (Portuguese: Rio Tejo) beyond. The strongly-fortified citadel, which, in its present configuration, dates from medieval times, is located atop the highest hill in the historic center of the city. The castle is one of the main historical and touristic sites of Lisbon. Although the first fortifications on this Lisbon hilltop are known to be no older than the second century BC, archaeological research has shown that humans have occupied the site since the sixth century BC, and possibly earlier. The hill was employed in early times by indigenous Celtic tribes, and others, probably Phoenicians, Greeks, and Carthaginians, have also left their cultural footprints there. Afterwards, Roman, Suebic, Visigothic, and Moorish settlers lived where the castle now stands.


I'm headed back to Seville to get my port passes and heading back to Havana Captain Aki-Chan isn't one who gives up easily!

Pisa: And the tilting tower! (Part.5) Capt.Aki's tour

"Leaving Marseilles I heard that further to the east there's a place called Pizza they serve great Pizza and you can enjoy eating Pizza while staring at their great leaning tower made of Pizza and called the leaning tower of Pizza yummy!!! "

 

And so I set sail as far as I could to adventure!!!


Pisa (English pronunciation: /'pi:za'/; Italian pronunciation: ["pisa"]) is a city in Tuscany, Central Italy, on the right bank of the mouth of the River Arno on the Ligurian Sea. It is the capital city of the Province of Pisa. Although Pisa is known worldwide for its Leaning Tower. The city is also home of the University of Pisa, which has a history going back to the 12th century.

It is said that the apple fell on Newton's head, but it was Galileo who planted the tree. And Aki-Chan Suggested it


Galileo Galilei (Italian pronunciation: [gali'leo gali'lei]; 15 February 1564 – 8 January 1642) was an Italian physicist, mathematician, astronomer and philosopher who played a major role in the Scientific Revolution. His achievements include improvements to the telescope and consequent astronomical observations, and support for Copernicanism. Galileo has been called the "father of modern observational astronomy," the "father of modern physics," the "father of science,"and "the Father of Modern Science." Stephen Hawking says, "Galileo, perhaps more than any other single person, was responsible for the birth of modern science."


The motion of uniformly accelerated objects, taught in nearly all high school and introductory college physics courses, was studied by Galileo as the subject of kinematics. His contributions to observational astronomy include the telescopic confirmation of the phases of Venus, the discovery of the four largest satellites of Jupiter (named the Galilean moons in his honor), and the observation and analysis of sunspots. Galileo also worked in applied science and technology, inventing an improved military compass and other instruments.

Galileo's championing of Copernicanism was controversial within his lifetime, when a large majority of philosophers and astronomers still subscribed to the geocentric view that the Earth is at the center of the universe. After 1610, when he began publicly supporting the heliocentric view, which placed the Sun at the center of the universe, he met with bitter opposition from some philosophers and clerics, and two of the latter eventually denounced him to the Roman Inquisition early in 1615. In February 1616, although he had been cleared of any offense, the Catholic Church nevertheless condemned heliocentrism as "false and contrary to Scripture", and Galileo was warned to abandon his support for it—which he promised to do. When he later defended his views in his most famous work, Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, published in 1632, he was tried by the Inquisition, found "vehemently suspect of heresy," forced to recant, and spent the rest of his life under house arrest.


The skills that can be learned from Galileo Galilei are.
Geography (Skill)
2,500 Ducats
First Aid (Skill)
2,000 Ducats
Merchandise Knowledge (Skill)
250,000 Ducats



I was right!


The Leaning Tower of Pisa (Italian: Torre pendente di Pisa) or simply the Tower of Pisa (La Torre di Pisa) is the campanile, or freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa. It is situated behind the Cathedral and is the third oldest structure in Pisa's Cathedral Square (Piazza del Duomo) after the Cathedral and the Baptistry.

Although intended to stand vertically, the tower began leaning to the southeast soon after the onset of construction in 1173 due to a poorly laid foundation and loose substrate that has allowed the foundation to shift direction.



The University of Pisa (Italian Università di Pisa) is located in Pisa, Tuscany. It was formally founded on September 3, 1343 by an edict of Pope Clement VI, although there had been lectures on law in Pisa since the 11th century. The University has Europe's oldest academic botanical garden (Orto botanico di Pisa), founded 1544.


The University of Pisa is part of the Pisa University System, together with the Scuola Normale Superiore and the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies. It offers a wide and renowned range of courses, but it is especially known for its science and engineering branches, which manage extremely good courses at the BSc, MSc and PhD level. The Computer Science course at University of Pisa was the first one in the area to be activated in the whole Italy, during the 1960s. The aerospace MSc courses (EuMAS, MSSE) are the first in Italy to be offered entirely in the English language. The university now has about 57,000 students (of which 53,000 in undergraduate and postgraduate studies and 3500 in doctoral and specialization studies).
 


They Didn't have pepperoni only seafood yeeck!


While I didn't enjoy Pisa as much as I expected it to be they only had one flavor and it was sea food.So I decided to look for something more exotic I wounder where I'll end up next?

Handy Dandy Crafting!

Posted by UWO_NEWS Sunday October 16 2011 at 3:07PM
Login or Register to rate this blog post!
Players of UWO will notice that you have 3 jobs and any of these jobs can be leveled-up at anytime of the game . Also unlike traditional MMORPGs in UWO any skill can be learned from any job all you need is a guild card. another thing in UWO is that there is a very extensive crafting system from mixing herbs to building ships. this is one of the best ways of making money since most items crafter later-ow cannot be bought from the NPC but from players who can make them only.

Capt-Aki-Chan maybe a great adventurer but little to be known that she is also a great craftswoman!! she can make simple thing like medicine to furniture cabinets

there are a lot of other disciplines like cooking and casting (making armors) that are in the game I believe that one player should at least have one specialty

This is another guide prepared by Starcrossed and I have been using this guide and believe it is the most effective in helping you grind your Handy craft skills



Introduction

Handicraft has always been one of my favourite crafting skills, because of its versatility. It can be coupled with other major crafting skills such as Cooking and Casting and significantly shorten the time to level the other two skills. It can also be complemented with skills such as Procurement and Collection, and therefore turning trash items such as Grass, Sand and Stone into highly valuable commodity.
Handicraft can be used to make trade goods such as alcohol, as well as make Gems from ore collected in Landing areas. It is also responsible for making all furniture throughout the game, and can add valuable boosts to your ship by building Head Pieces and Wooden Armours Because Handicraft is such a versatile, each nation will have its advantages and disadvantages. Spanish players and Portuguese players will have easy access to, Wheat, Barley, Olives, Cane, Almond, and Wine, French players will have the Bordeaux to Nantes trade route as well as access to the Brewing Secrets Volume 2 from Montpellier, and Dutch and English players will have the raw materials of Lumber and other metal ore and Industrial goods from the North Sea.


Recommended Birthplace


Mediterranean Chapter
-Lisbon
-Marseille



North Sea Chapter
-London
-Amsterdam



*Mediterranean Chapter

-Required Recipe Books
Book of Pharmaceutical preparation [optional] (Nantes, Malaga, Syracuse) 5000D
Book of Seasoning (Palma) 5000D
Brewing Secrets (Cagliari, reward after 320,000D in investment; Hamburg) 10000D
Brewing Secrets Volume 2 (Montpellier, Havana, reward after 800,000D in investment)


-Required Skills
Food trading (animal trader, food merchant)
Alcohol trading (accountant)
Luxury item trading (accountant, medicine trader)
Handicraft (medicine trader)
Either one of Procurement or Collection [optional] (fisherman)
Industrial goods trade [optional] (mineral trader)


Level 1 (3 x Grass >>> Basic Medicine)
One of the biggest problems with Handicraft is that most recipes start at level 2, so at level 1 your options are very limited. You can of course try and purchase a +1 Handicraft Shipwright’s Saw from players, but that equipment would cost about 3 million ducats. The next best thing is try to get your Handicraft to level 2 by crafting level 1 items.
Sail to Nantes, purchase the Book of Pharmaceutical preparation. Go outside the town through the gatekeeper and use either Procurement or Collection skill (on a grassy patch) to gather Grass and turn them into Basic Medicine.


This method can be time consuming if you can’t find the Logs.


Level 2 (Olive >>> Olive Oil; Cane >>> Cane Sugar; Wheat >>> Beer)
If you are Spanish you can sail between either Seville and Faro, and use the Brewing Secrets to turn Wheat into Beer or between Palma and Valencia and make Olive Oil from Olives using the Seasoning Book. Both products can be sold back to the market.
If you are Portuguese, you can sail to the Madeira and produce Cane Sugarfrom Cane with the Seasoning Book, or travel between Porto and Lisbon to brew Beer from Wheat found at Porto


Level 3 (Almond >>> Almond Oil; Wheat >>> Aquavit; Barley >>> Vodka)
Spanish players use the Seville to Ceuta route, making Aquavit from Wheat and Vodka from Barley using the Brewing Secrets book. Portuguese players use the Porto to Lisbon route, making Almond Oil from Almond from the Book of Seasoning, and Aquavit from Wheat using Brewing Secrets.


Level 4 (Almond >>> Almond Oil; Wheat >>> Aquavit; Barley >>> Vodka; 2 x Wine >>> Brandy)
Spanish players use the same route between Seville and Ceuta, this time with the addition of making Brandy from Wine. Similarly Portuguese players use the route from Porto to Lisbon, making Brandy from Wine on top of the Almond Oil and Aquavit.


Level 5 - 7 (Wheat >>> Whiskey; Barley >>> Vodka or Vinegar, 2 x Wine >>> Brandy)
Sail between Seville and Ceuta and brew Whiskey from Wheat, Vodka from Barley and Brandy from Wine. Now you’ll see why Handicraft is so profitable. Both Whiskey and Vodka are speciality products from the North and can see for quite a lot of money and fame. If you want less profit and fame, you can turn the Barley into Vinegar with the Book of Seasoning


Level 7 (Wheat >>> Whiskey; Barley >>> Vodka or Vinegar, Wine >>> Wine Vinegar)
Using the same trade routes above, except turning Wine into Wine Vinegar with the Book of Seasoning rather than Brandy.


Level 8 - 10 (Wheat >>> Whiskey; Barley >>> Vodka or Vinegar, Wine >>> Wine Vinegar or 2 x Wine >>> Brandy, Brandy + Raisin >>> Shelly)


Path A (Wheat >>> Whiskey; Barley >>> Vodka or Vinegar, Wine >>> Wine Vinegar)
If you are unlucky and do not have friends from France that can help you invest in a Brewing Secret Volume 2, then you are stuck in the Lisbon and Seville area, making Wine Vinegar from Wine. That would be the only recipe available to you until level 10.


Path B (Raisin >>> Wine, 2 x Wine >>> Brandy, Brandy + Raisin >>> Shelly)
If you are lucky enough to grab hold of a Secret Brewing Volume 2, then its time to make some serious profit.


Path B1 (Raisin >>> Wine, 2 x Wine >>> Brandy, Brandy + Raisin >>> Shelly)
-Suitable for all players, French players will have greater advantage.
Travel to the Bordeaux, Nantes area in the Bay of Biscay. Once you get here you’ll understand just how just how much of an advantage French players have in terms of Handicraft. Nantes sells Brandy, Bordeaux sells Wine and Raisins. Simply travel between the two ports, loading up on Brandy, Raisins, and Wine. Use Wine to make Brandy, combine Brandy with Raisin to make Shelly. Any leftover Raisins can be made into Wine, and then into Brandy and combined with another Raisin to make Shelly. Everything related to alcohol here can be crafted and therefore making these Nantes and Bordeaux area ideal for Handicraft crafters.


Trade Route (Nantes/Bordeaux >>> Plymouth)
Once your ship has full cargo of Shelly, you can unload them at Plymouth, where Shelly is considered a speciality product, and earning you some handsome exp, fame and profit.


Path B2 (4 x Cane >>> Rum, Raisin >>> Wine, 2 x Wine >>> Brandy, Brandy + Raisin >>> Shelly)
-Suitable only for Portuguese players with a small investment in Madeira, you will be able to purchase Wine and Raisin. The disadvantage of Madeira is that unlike Bordeaux/Nantes, there are no nearby ports. If you want maximum efficiency its best to bring category 2 purchase orders. The process is the same as in B2. Buy out Wine and Raisin. Turn the Wine into Brandy, and combine Brandy with Raisin to make Shelly. Buy Cane and brew Rum from the Cane. Because your are Portuguese, you will be able to invest in Madeira and purchase extra trade goods.


Trade Route
This trade route is highly profitable and fast. Before you set out from Lisbon, make sure you have in your ship cargo 50 of Feathers (crafted from by plucking chicken with level 1 Sewing), 50 of Whiskey, brewed from Wheat, 50 of Aquavit, made also from Wheat, 50 of Vodka, made from Barley in Ceuta, travel to Madeira, craft at least 50 of Shelly, and some Rum if you have cargo space. Once your ship is loaded with alcohol, sail down to Arguin, south west of Madeira on the African Coast. All the items in your ship apart from Rum are speciality items, and by selling them together you will receive Specialty Combo, earning you lots of experience and Ducat. This Portuguese special trade route can make you a multi millionaire in a matter of days.


Level 10
See late game


*North Sea Chapter

-Required Skill Books
Art Handbook (Cairo, reward after 400,000D in Investment)
Book of Additional Wood Armour (all six capital cities) 15000D
Book of Alloy Smelting [optional] (Dublin, reward after 300,000 in investment)
Brewing Secrets [optional] (Cagliari, reward after 320,000D in investment; Hamburg) 10000D
Brewing Secrets Volume 2 [optional] (Havana, Montpellier, reward after 800,000 in investment)


-Required Skills
Industrial good trading (mineral trader)
Handicraft (medicine trader)
Ore trading [optional] (mineral trader)
Casting [Level 7+] [optional] (mineral trader, firearms trader)
Alcohol trading [optional] (accountant)
Luxury items trading [optional] (accountant, medicine trader)


Level 1 – 3 (Lumber + Iron >>> Cedar Boards)
Although, casting is not essential, having casting at level 7 and being able to make Bronze would make the leveling up of Handicraft 10 or more times faster. For details on how to level up Casting, see my guide on Casting. The reason is that you can turn Bronze into Bronze statue and the materials to make Bronze can all be found in Hamburg.
If you wish to master Handicraft and you are from either England or Netherlands, it is highly recommended that you start off with Casting and use Handicraft as a complement rather than head straight into Handicraft.
Purchase as many Iron from Amsterdam as you can and then sail to Oslo. In Oslo combine Lumber with Iron to make Cedar Boards from the Book of Additional Wood Armour.


Level 3 - 5 (Lumber >>> Wooden statue)
The recipe book required for making Wooden Statue is obtained from Cairo. It is best to ask a friend from a Mediterranean nation to bring the book for you. It is a very long travel from Cairo back to the North. Wooden Statues will sell for quite a lot in Oslo, and this recipe can make you rich very quickly. The disadvantage is that Oslo has no close by ports, so you will have to buy Lumber from other players.


Level 5 – 8 (Copper Ore + Tin Ore >>> Bronze: Bronze >>> Bronze statue)
Bronze can be purchased from ports, but it is much quicker if you use level 7 casting skill and the Book of Alloy Smelting, obtained from 300,000D in investments in Dublin to produce Bronze from Copper Ore and Tin Ore, which are both available in Hamburg.
In this method you can level up your Casting as well as your Handicraft, and you don’t have to leave port.


Level 8 – 10 (Copper Ore + Tin Ore >>> Bronze: Bronze >>> Bronze Statue or Raisin >>> Wine, 2 x Wine >>> Brandy, Brandy + Raisin >>> Shelly)


Path A (Copper Ore + Tin Ore >>> Bronze: Bronze >>> Bronze Statue)
You can craft Bronze Statues until you reach level 10. You will make a lot of Ducats, but the monotony might kill you.


Path B (Raisin >>> Wine, 2 x Wine >>> Brandy, Brandy + Raisin >>> Shelly)
You can also use the method discussed earlier in the Mediterranean Chapter to make Shelly in Bordeaux/Nantes areas.


Level 10
See late game


Late Game

Before you start your late game handicraft, it recommended that you have a high level in Collection, at least 6, and even better, if you have farm that was producing the raw materials for crafting. The items needed for crafting late game materials in Handicraft are a pain to gather, and most such as Red Ore, Honeycomb and Vegetable Oil can only be obtained through Collection in Landing areas. Before you head out to collect the materials make sure you stock up on Food items to replenish vigour. If you can produce the required items in your farm, then you can level up quite easily.


-Required Recipe Books
Art Handbook (Cairo, reward after 400,000D in Investment)
Brewing Secrets [optional] (Cagliari, reward after 320,000D in investment; Hamburg) 10000D
Brewing Secrets Volume 2 [optional] (Havana, Montpellier, reward after 800,000D in investment)
Craftsman Drill Book (Candia, reward after 320,000D in investment)
Book of Stone Cutting (Sao Tome, reward after 400,000D in investment)
Skilled Craftsman Drill Book (Jaffa, reward after 300,000D in investment)
Book of Ruby Cutting [optional] (Simorghian, Ceylon, reward after 2,000,000D in investment)
Book of Emerald Cutting [optional] (Zanzibar, reward after 2,000,000D in investment)


-Required Skills
Alcohol trading [optional] (accountant)
Luxury items trading [optional] (accountant, medicine trader)
Industrial good trading (mineral trader)
Handicraft (medicine trader)
Collection (fisherman)


*Note the Collection Skill
Collection Skill is a favoured skill of the Fisherman and Chef profession. It can be used to gather material in Landing areas and on the sea. Each time you use Collection it costs 5 Vigour, and the skill is only cancelled when you click on the Collection icon on the screen.
Some items can only be collected in certain areas, and require certain levels in Collection.
The higher your level of collection, the more chances you will have in collecting rare materials and also increases the amount you collect each time.
The best places to collect are Landmark areas in Landing zones. Places such as Stacked Boulder or Large tree yield the most items


Level 10 – 12 [Book of Arts] (Stone material + Lumber >>> Stone Statue)
You can stay in Oslo and purchase Lumber and Stone Material to make Stone Statue, then selling the Stone Statue back to the market. It is recommended you bring a lot of purchase orders to refresh the market.


Level 10 – 12[Brewing Secrets Volume 2] (5 x Large Leaf >>> Tequila)
Large Leaf can either be produced from your farm or collected in the Caribbean. Just land in any Landing area around the Caribbean, find a landmark and start collecting. You need level 6 in Collection though.


Level 12 – 14 [Brewing Secrets Volume 1 + 2](Raisin >>> Wine, 2 x Wine >>> Brandy, Brandy + Raisin >>> Shelly, 4 x Cane >>> Rum, Rum + Shelly + Honeycomb >>> Treaty Ale)
Shelly and Rum can be easily made in Madeira, see the Mediterranean Chapter for more details. Honeycomb can only be Collected from Landing areas in Eastern Europe. The best way is to Collect a near full cargo of Honeycomb (requires level 1 Collection) and sail to Madeira to make Treaty Ale. The grass that you collect can be made into Vegetable Oil with the Craftsman Drill Book.


Level 12 – 14 [Skilled Craftsman Drill Book](10 x Grass >>> Vegetable Oil, Vegetable Oil + 2 x Lumber >>> Fine Furniture)
Go to the Landing area outside the gatekeeper in Nantes. Find a Stack of Boulders just outside the Entrance to the West. Use Collection (at least level 5), and collect Vegetable Oil. Grass can also be crafted into Vegetable Oil with the Craftsman Drill Book.
Once you have a cargo full of Vegetable Oil, travel to Oslo and combine 2 x Lumber with Vegetable Oil to make Fine Furniture.


Level 14 – 15 [Gem cutting](4 x Ore >>> Gem)
Congratulations on making it so far, now is where you can see how 5 Vigour can be turned into 25,000 Ducats. The ores required for cutting gems can be produced from your farm, and that is probably the easiest and best way to acquire them. Otherwise you will have to collect them youself.

For Ruby, Red Ore can be collected (require level 5 in Collection) outside Tunis
For Amber, Yellow Ore can be collected (require level 5 in Collection) outside Stockholm
For Emerald, Green Ore can be collected (require level 5 in Collection) outside Athens

When you go and collect ores, you can cut Stones(10) into Crystals with Stone Cutting Book, and turn Crystals into Glassware with Skilled Craftsman Drill Book


Level 15
Graduation!!! You have mastered the art of Handicraft, you can now turn unwanted objects into prized possession, and with level 15 at your disposal you can millions in a matter of minutes. But wait, there is still something more challenging. Yes with Handicraft, you can also build Furniture for people’s Apartments. These Furniture will allow players to store various items and trade goods in their apartment as well their Skills.

The highest level Furniture is requires level 17 Handicraft, and if you make it, you will become the world’s most Legendary Carpenter.


So Good Luck and Sail Safe.

Marseilles: The European Capital of Culture (Part.4) Capt.Aki's tour

Marseille: (in English traditionally spelled Marseilles, pronounced /m?r?se?/; French pronunciation: [ma?s?j]; locally [m?χ?s?j?]; in Occitan Marselha or Marsiho, pronounced [ma??sej?, ma??sij?]), formerly known as Massalia (from Greek: Μασσαλ?α), is the second most populous city in France, after Paris.

Marseille has been designated as European Capital of Culture in 2013. Marseille is a city that is proud of its differences from the rest of France. Today it is a regional centre for culture and entertainment with an important opera house, historical and maritime museums, five art galleries and numerous cinemas, clubs, bars and restaurants.


Michel de Nostredame: (14 December or 21 December 1503 – 2 July 1566), usually Latinised to Nostradamus, was a French apothecary and reputed seer who published collections of prophecies that have since become famous worldwide. He is best known for his book Les Propheties ("The Prophecies"), the first edition of which appeared in 1555. Since the publication of this book, which has rarely been out of print since his death, Nostradamus has attracted a following that, along with the popular press, credits him with predicting many major world events. The prophecies have in some cases been assimilated to the results of applying the alleged Bible code, as well as to other purported prophetic works.


Most academic sources maintain that the associations made between world events and Nostradamus's quatrains are largely the result of misinterpretations or mistranslations (sometimes deliberate) or else are so tenuous as to render them useless as evidence of any genuine predictive power. Moreover, none of the sources listed offers any evidence that anyone has ever interpreted any of Nostradamus's quatrains specifically enough to allow a clear identification of any event in advance.



The skills that can be learned from Nostradamus are:

Pathology (Skill) = 4,000 Ducats
Unlock (Skill) = 30,000 Ducats
Mine Detection (Skill) = 15,000 Ducats


Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519) was an Italian polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist and writer. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance man, a man whose unquenchable curiosity was equaled only by his powers of invention. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived.According to art historian Helen Gardner, the scope and depth of his interests were without precedent and "his mind and personality seem to us superhuman, the man himself mysterious and remote".Marco Rosci points out, however, that while there is much speculation about Leonardo, his vision of the world is essentially logical rather than mysterious, and that the empirical methods he employed were unusual for his time.


Born the illegitimate son of a notary, Piero da Vinci, and a peasant woman, Caterina, at Vinci in the region of Florence, Leonardo was educated in the studio of the renowned Florentine painter, Verrocchio. Much of his earlier working life was spent in the service of Ludovico il Moro in Milan. He later worked in Rome, Bologna and Venice and spent his last years in France, at the home awarded him by Francis I.



The skills that can be learned from Da Vinci are.

Handicraft (Skill) = 20,000 Ducats
Art (Skill) = 5,000 Ducats
Italian (Language) = 1,000 Ducats
 

François Rabelais (French pronunciation: [f???swa ?abl?]) (c. 1494 – April 9, 1553) was a major French Renaissance writer, doctor and Renaissance humanist. He has historically been regarded as a writer of fantasy, satire, the grotesque, and bawdy jokes and songs.


Although the place or date of his birth is not reliably documented, and some scholars put it as early as 1483, it is probable that François Rabelais was born in November 1494 near Chinon, Indre-et-Loire, where his father worked as a lawyer. La Devinière in Seuilly, Indre-et-Loire, is the name of the estate that claims to be the writer's birthplace and houses a Rabelais museum.

Later he left the monastery to study at the University of Poitiers and University of Montpellier. In 1532, he moved to Lyon, one of the intellectual centres of France, and not only practiced medicine but edited Latin works for the printer Sebastian Gryphius. As a doctor, he used his spare time to write and publish humorous pamphlets which were critical of established authority and stressed his own perception of individual liberty. His revolutionary works, although satirical, revealed an astute observer of the social and political events unfolding during the first half of the sixteenth century.



The skills that can be learned from Francoise Rabelais are:

Theology (Skill) = 8,000 Ducats
English (Language) = 1,000 Ducats
Dutch (Language) = 1,000 Ducats


The Château d'If is a fortress (later a prison) located on the island of If, the smallest island in the Frioul Archipelago situated in the Mediterranean Sea about a mile offshore in the Bay of Marseille in southeastern France. It is famous for being one of the settings of Alexandre Dumas' adventure novel The Count of Monte Cristo.

The château is a square, three-story building 28 m long on each side, flanked by three towers with large gun embrasures. The remainder of the island, which only measures 30,000 square meters, is heavily fortified; high ramparts with gun platforms surmount the island's cliffs.


The Reformed Church of France (French: L’Eglise Réformée de France, ÉRF) is a denomination in France (originally Calvinist). It is the original, and largest, Protestant denomination in France. The church is a member of the Protestant Federation of France (Fédération protestante de France), the World Alliance of Reformed Churches and the World Council of Churches.

The church has approximately 350,000 members, distributed in a somewhat unequal fashion throughout French metropolitan territory with the exception of Alsace-Moselle and the Pays de Montbéliard. The church consists of 400 parishes, organised in 50 presbyteries (consistoires) and eight administrative regions.


Boy the French sure love fancy stuff they even have a fancy prison so pirates beware!!!


But all there was to eat was fish darn it!. maybe the next place has something good stay tuned for part 5 of Capt.Aki-Chans tour hope everyone is having FUN!

Removing Pirate Status In UWO!

Posted by UWO_NEWS Wednesday October 12 2011 at 2:14AM
Login or Register to rate this blog post!
Think it's fun bullying the traders with your lvl.10 battle on hostile waters. Yeah! It sure was fun until you get bullied yourself. I had to learn the hard way!!!



First things first, what is pirate status and how do you get it?



1. You can get Pirate status by attacking players in hostile waters and sinking their ship.
2. Players can identify you as a pirate when your name is highlighted depending on the level of your notoriety from light orange to red.
3. Once you are a pirate, any player can attack you regardless of where you are even if you are not in hostile waters.
4. Players may take your gold and items just like beating up NPC pirates!
5. Only having a notoriety of over 1000 will label you as a pirate going below 1000 will normalize your status; notoriety being the skulls on the lower left of the image.



How do I remove it?!

1. Sail and sail a lot -- this is the only way to remove it for now; waiting at ports and in town will do nothing, it's measured by how far in a day you sail.
2. Premium item!!! It's not yet been implemented.



Being a pirate is not so much fun when your level is low so better think twice next time!!!

  OBT started October 1, 2010 and I have been enjoying myself! It seems the game had a major face lift --- a few features where added --- it's now simpler to add friends; the graphics improved, the textures are much sharper and effects are better; a lot of quest bugs have been fixed too!

 I'm still playing in Spain as "Aika" and my alternate is "Akira" (Isn't he dreamy).

* Aika on the left and Akira on the right ^_^

Though there are still multi-boxers and gold sellers I guess this can't be avoided since I checked a gold sellers website and saw that they even support every major online games (WOW, FFXIV, Vindictus) so its up to the community actually if they would support this. But as a frequent visitor in the forums it seem the community is 100% against them.

I suggest people who were disappointed with CBT to give it a try again. There's a lot of major improvements; the only thing I disliked so far is game guard, it seems to block other apps. Well, that's its job anyway.

Valencia: Where Paella Originated Yummy! (Part.3) Capt.Aki's tour

 "My home port Seville left me a craving for "Paella" and where would be the best place to get some. Why Valencia where else the home of Paella"

Valencia (Spanish IPA: [ba?lenθja]) or València (Valencian IPA: [va?lensja]) is the capital and most populous city of the Autonomous Community of Valencia and the third largest city in Spain, with a population of 814,208 in 2009.[1] It is the 15th-most populous municipality in the European Union. About 1,175,000[2] or 1,564,145.[3] people live in the Valencia urban area and 1,705,742[4][5][6] or 2,300,000[7] in the Valencia metropolitan area.
It is integrated into an industrial area on the Costa del Azahar. Its main festival, the Falles, is known worldwide, while the traditional dish, paella, originated around Valencia.
The city contains a dense monumental heritage, including the Llotja de la Seda (World Heritage Site since 1996), but its landmark is undoubtedly the City of Arts and Sciences, an avant-garde and futuristic museum complex.







Andreas Vesalius (December 31, 1514 – October 15, 1564) was an anatomist, physician, and author of one of the most influential books on human anatomy, De humani corporis fabrica (On the Fabric of the Human Body). Vesalius is often referred to as the founder of modern human anatomy.
Vesalius is the Latinized form of Andreas van Wesel. He is sometimes also referred to as Andreas Vesal and Andre Vesale.




 

 "When I undertake the dissection of a human cadaver I pass a stout rope tied like a noose beneath the lower jaw and through the zygomas up to the top of the head... The lower end of the noose I run through a pulley fixed to a beam in the room so that I may raise or lower the cadaver as it hangs there or turn around in any direction to suit my purpose; ... You must take care not to put the noose around the neck, unless some of the muscles connected to the occipital bone have already been cut away. ..."[4] --Andreas Vesalius, 595:2 of Bynum & Porter, Oxford Dictionary of Scientific Quotations 2005






The skills that can be learned from Vesalius are.
 Surgery (Skill)
60,000 Ducats
Eradication (Skill)
3,000 Ducats 
 
 
 
 
 
 
La Cathedral :The Cathedral of Valencia (Metropolitan Basilica Cathedral), commonly known as the "Seu", was consecrated in 1238 by the first bishop of Valencia Pere d'Albalat and was dedicated by order of James I the Conqueror to Saint Mary. It was built upon the mosque, which in turn had been raised in place of the former Visigothic cathedral. Gothic architecture is the predominant style of this cathedral, although it also contains Romanesque, Renaissance art, Baroque and neoclassical elements. 
Before Leaving Valencia I didn't forget to have some Paella!

 Hmmmm.. Now where will I go next I heard there's a great place that serves good pizza nearby or maybe I should pick up some french fries along the way.
"Capt-Aki-Chan"

Happy 1st Birthday UWO!

Aki-Chans Critical Guide!

Login or Register to rate this blog post!

In UWO ship battles have critical damage but unlike land battles a ships critical hit is not by % but by skills of the player.


By hitting ether the Bow (Front Tip) Or the Stern (Rear) you are sure to have a critical hit. Sounds easy but it sure ain't the enemy ships A.I gets better the more you progress.

 
 
 
Ship battles are not just all about having better ships and cannons but it also involves skills as well a level 30 player can beat a level 50 just by having better skills
 
 
Note: Skills in UWO level up by how much you use them and not by distributing points as you level-up

Advanced Finals Guide
 
A quick way to finish school! for the 3 class types


Warning:

THE GRIND!
The grind is simply known as the part of any Advanced school where you are forced to do ten repeatable quests to get to the final. Rather than give a list of all ten from each course and how to do them, I will give you the quickest of the quests you can do and explain how to complete it. You can repeat this quest ten times to end the grind.

GROUPS!
This is best done in a full fleet of five. Like this you can get nearly 2000 fame per final if you all turn in at once. It also makes the grind more fun.



 Basic Advanced School Quests: (For all classes)

Quest Name: Concerning Hostile Waters

Step 1: Go to the port in Pisa and speak to instructor Maximilian about hostile waters. He will give you a detailed description about hostile waters, pirates, and bounties.

Part.2: Home Town Seville !


Seville (Spanish: Sevilla [se?βi?a]) is the artistic, cultural, and financial capital of southern Spain. It is the capital of the autonomous community of Andalusia and of the province of Seville. It is situated on the plain of the River Guadalquivir, with an average elevation of 7 metres (23 ft) above sea level. The inhabitants of the city are known as sevillanos(feminine form: sevillanas) or hispalenses.


Yup! Aki-Chan is from Seville and will wander the entire known world in the age of sail!. Showing you every city and famous people and places.



Tomé Pires (1465?–1524 or 1540) was an apothecary from Lisbon who spent 1512 to 1515 in Malacca immediately after the Portuguese conquest, at a time when Europeans were only first arriving in South East Asia. After his arduous experiences in India and the East Indies, he headed the first official embassy from a European nation in China (Portugal to the Emperor, Zhengde, during the Ming Dynasty), where he died.

Pires was apothecary to the ill-fated Afonso, Prince of Portugal, son of King John II of Portugal. He went to India in 1511 invested as "factor of drugs", the Eastern commodities that were an important element of what is generally called "the spice trade". In Malacca and Cochin he avidly collected and documented information from the Malay-Indonesia area, and personally visited Java, Sumatra (the two dominant islands of modern-day Indonesia) and Maluku.



The skills that can be learned from Tomé Pires are:

Fishing (Skill) = 3,000 Ducats

Arabic (Skill) = 10,000 Ducats

Portuguese (Language) = 1,000 Ducats





El Greco (1541 – April 7, 1614) was a painter, sculptor, and architect of the Spanish Renaissance. "El Greco" (The Greek) was a nickname,[a][b] a reference to his Greek origin, and the artist normally signed his paintings with his full birth name in Greek letters, Δομ?νικος Θεοτοκ?πουλος (Doménikos Theotokópoulos).


El Greco was born in Crete, which was at that time part of the Republic of Venice, and the centre of Post-Byzantine art. He trained and became a master within that tradition before travelling at age 26 to Venice, as other Greek artists had done.[1] In 1570 he moved to Rome, where he opened a workshop and executed a series of works. During his stay in Italy, El Greco enriched his style with elements of Mannerism and of the Venetian Renaissance. In 1577, he moved to Toledo, Spain, where he lived and worked until his death. In Toledo, El Greco received several major commissions and produced his best known paintings.




The skills that can be learned from El Greco:

Appraisal (Skill) = 3,000 Ducats

Art (Skill) = 1,000 Ducats

Italian (Language) = 5,000 Ducats





Duke Farnese: Hmmm!?!?. Some random duke since he has no first name. If someone would like to comment on who he is I'll update this article but for now he's unknown.



He is located on east of Seville.



The skills that can be learned from Duke Farnese are:

Theology (Skill) = 8,000 Ducats

Archeology (Skill) = 3,000 Ducats

English (Language) = 1,000 Ducats
 
 
 
Alvaro de Bazan, Marques de Santa Cruz: (b. Dec. 12, 1526, Granada, Spain—d. Feb. 9, 1588, Lisbon, Port.), the foremost Spanish naval commander of his day. He was prominent in many successful naval engagements in a century that saw Spain rise to the zenith of its power and was the first proponent and planner of the Spanish Armada, the fleet that was to attempt the invasion of England shortly after his death.
The son of a Spanish naval commander, he entered the navy at an early age and fought against the French, the Turks, and the Moors in the Mediterranean. He steadily advanced in rank and was created the Marqués de Santa Cruz in 1569. In the Battle of Lepanto against the Turks (1571), Santa Cruz, as commander of the reserve fleet, displayed excellent seamanship and played an important role in the crushing of the Turkish fleet.



He is located south east of Seville inside the royal castle




The skills that can be learned from Santa Cruz Marquis are:

Leadership (Skill) = 5,000 Ducats

Penetration (Skill) = 80,000 Ducats

Ballistics (Skill) = 25,000 Ducats




The Cathedral of Seville (Catedral de Sevilla) is an expression in stone of post-Reconquest confidence and wealth. Built on the site of a mosque, it is the third largest church in Europe and the largest Gothic building in Europe. It also boasts the largest altarpiece in the world.

Built on the site of a grand Almohad Mosque, Seville's cathedral was built to demonstrate the city's power and wealth after the Reconquista. In the planning stages, a member of the chapter is said to have commented, "we shall have a church of such a kind that those who see it built will think we were mad." Inspired by this goal, the canons of Seville renounced all but a subsistence level of their incomes to fund the construction. The cathedral was completed in just over a century (1402-1506), quite an achievement given its size and Gothic details. It was probably designed by the French master architect of Rouen Cathedral. Along with the city's Alcazar and Archivo de las Indias, Seville Cathedral was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987.
