For Rise of the Pirates players, this is a guide that will assist you in having a better understanding of how to level your ship as well as how to get it to the Black Seas, getting the various upgrades for your ship.
To upgrade your ship you need treasury, and to get this you have many options, I will list on what I think are the best ways to get treasury.
a) Questing(only on weekends for double xp)
b) Killing Black Sea mobs(You can still get to the Black Sea without a ship, if someone loans you a dingy, every Black Sea mob gives 500 treasury per kill. However, if it’s on a weekend(Friday to Sunday at 1 A.M. EST) you will get 1,000 treasury per kill. This will also stack with only players(NOTE: Every player MUST hit the mob atleast one time to be able to pick up the boss treasure chest to gain the treasury)).
c) Capping flags: Note: if you decided to only cap flags to gain treasury, you have to cap it atleast once, then continue capping a 2nd time to gain any treasury at all. Every cap after the 1st gives you 200 treasury except on double xp weekends which in that case will gain you 400 treasury after the 1st cap every time.
The locations to aquire the upgrades you need, the NPC you need to talk to is directly east of the northern spawn in mydd desert, he is on a Dokk, he wears a blue headband with green hair and a pink t-shirt. He’s the shipwright.

d) Infermary Spawn Point(10,000) – This allows your crew/fleet members to set their spawn point to the ship.
e) Deck Editing (20,000) – This allows you to edit the deck of your ship(although it’s believed this doesn’t work at the current time)
f) Crew Bank Slot(15,000) – This allows you to put bank slots into your crew/fleet bank for better organization and/or more room for items.
g) Cannon(15,000) – This is what you need in order to start leveling your ship, You need 2 people to preform this, one to shoot the cannon, and one to gather mobs infront of the cannons shooting, the more cannons you have the faster it shoots. NOTE: The person shooting the cannon HAS to do atleast 55% of the mobs hp, the best place to grind leveling is to pull crabs on star island, The more your ship levels the higher the damage will be, and the faster leveling will be.
