What are your favored attributes in a naval ship?
After todays tweet. I thought I would take the discussion to the forums.
As someone who as spent years as a US Navy sailor. I love boats. Even though I server on a metal ship with no sails. I have a special place in my heart for ships from the age of sail. They are very much romanticized in the modern navy. Navel history is nearly a daily topic for those out at sea. I would also imagine this extends to anyone on any non-navy ship at sea too. If not maybe I am just a magnet for this type of conversation. I did take the time to look at all of the cosmetic ship skins we have to far.
Too me personally they all look fantastic. This is one area of the cosmetic shop where I have not seen a skin a don't like. Not all of them have the best sails and rigging, but in fantasy I let it slide. Many people who understand armor will extend disbelief a little to allow themselves to also love fantasy armors in this way.
To answer the twitter question:
I want to see a octopus or squid themed ship. Maybe something with like tentacles holding up the masts or something crazy. Would be nuts to see a living giant squid that is tied up with rigging on it. A living breathing ship that is eternally angry about its current situation. I have seen a lot of pictures of giant squids/octopi fighting ships, but never of one being a ship. Seems like a no brainer to me.
What do y'all wanna see?
If I had more time, I would write a shorter post.
