    Features
    • Sea Charms and Cannon Rams are now fully functional! Players can equip one in the "Item" slot of their inventory for special boosts and effects, including:
      • Ammo damage boosts.
      • Critical shot.
      • Extra ammo range.
      • Infinite ammo.
      • Skill boosts.
      • Skill duration boosts.
    • Rumor has it that four new legendary weapons have surfaced. The Brethren Court has learned that these be quite powerful - wielded by some of the most fearsome and notorious individuals in the Caribbean. Will you be one of the first to find them? Only time will tell...
    • Big changes have been made to The Diplomat and China Seas Warrior outfits. These sets now have different clothing items depending on which peddler you visit.
      • China Seas Warrior now has two variations of closed coats, for both males and females.
      • The Diplomat now has an open long coat and high neck shirt variation for males and a closed coat variation for females.
      • The two outfits will return as week-long flash sales throughout August to get players these new items.
    • Kat Repperson, a new peddler, has set up shop in Las Pulgas on Padres del Fuego, next to Goslin Prymme's tavern.
    • New colorable hat: Accented EITC Hat. It is available in the secret shop and in loot (as brights).
    • Rank IV Storm Chaser, Fortune Hunter, and Copperhead hulls now have better speed, cargo, and armor stats respectively. Previously, these hulls had worse stats compared to their rank III counterparts.
    • Sailing skills will now properly increase in duration when more skill points are applied.
    • The Seven Seas Repeater Pistol group (six weapons!) can now be found in loot.
    • Per player request, we removed the previously discontinued peddler outfit, Treasure Hunter, from general loot. It is back on the docket as a flash sale set.
    • The Treasure Hunter outfit now has a brand new pair of shorts for men.
      • The old shorts are still available in loot.
      • The previous shorts were able to be found elsewhere in the game. These are exclusive to Peddlers.
    • We've added 75 new prefixes and 75 new suffixes to the ship name chooser!
    • We've entirely rewritten the back-end of the Lookout matchmaker system again to better accommodate for Team PvP queuing and future updates. We hope to have more improvements to the Lookout system in the future!
    Bugfixes
    • Cannon fixes:
      • Fixed a district reset caused by shooting a cannon after using a voodoo doll.
      • Rewrote several functions for cannons on the back-end. This is a huge fix. It patches up three of our most common in-game crashes that occur thousands upon thousands of times.
    • Sailing & ship fixes:
      • Fixed a bug where enemies would go idle on flagships.
      • Fixed a bug where ramming speed did not damage the targeted ship.

      • Fixed a crash when launching or docking a ship.
      • Fixed a district reset when boarding a flagship.

      • Fixed a district reset when firing broadsides.
      • Fixed several miscellaneous issues with flagships.

      • Finally fixed a bug preventing players from completing digging quests when you have 2+ digging quests in your quest journal.
      • Fixed a bug causing the treasure chest animation to not appear when digging.
      • Fixed a bug which caused the Raven's Cove Story Quest to get stuck at various points.
      • Fixed a bug which caused the Raven's Cove teleportation quest to not appear in your quest journal. If you are still missing the quest, please contact support.

    • Lookout fixes:
      • Fixed a district reset when accepting a Mayhem match as a group from the Lookout panel.

      • Reworked how bounty and score systems work.
    • Miscellaneous fixes:

      • Clothing icon color fixes.
      • Fixed a catalog bug that prevented various clothing items from showing up in the new peddler's shop.
      • Fixed a district reset caused by an enemy reaching an invasion barricade at the same moment that it was destroyed.

      • Fixed texture issues with the Court Blouse, Embroidered Blouse, Florid Top, and Tavern Blouse.
      • Reworked how all skill boosts and special effects from weapons are applied to players. It's a much smoother process under the hood.
    Maintenance
    • Code cleanup.
    • Localizer grammar/typo fixes.
    • Made minor tweaks to the stats of a few different weapons.
    • Whitelist and Blacklist updates.
    Game Note
    • Since sailing charms have become operational, the team is also actively working on polishing up Cannon Defense! Ye will be able to acquire sought-after items such as the Revenant Ram once that is released!
