Sailwind - The Local Merchant's Handbook for Sailwind (Al' Ankh Region)

By SlithAscendants

Just a few suggestions, tips, and recommendation on how one can thrive in Sailwind. Most of the video guides I’ve seen for this sport are 30 min to hours. So I made a fast little information to assist new gamers alongside.


Simply so you realize I am not going to speak an excessive amount of about crusing on this information. There’s an abundance of fabric on crusing methods. This information is for me to share an “straightforward” technique of navigation, sport suggestions & tips, and to share a number of issues concerning the Al’ Ankh area that I’ve realized.

This Information is ongoing, I made a decision to do that information do to the dearth of content material on this budding masterpiece of a sport. I will likely be updating it as I am going in addition to placing a number of photos in it as a result of who does not love photos?

Al’ Ankh

Alrighty, so Al’ Ankh. Al Ankh is a sequence of desert isles that encompass 8 islands and 6 settlements. Fortunate for us new to crusing that do not know something about sea navigation, the middle island is large and could be seen simply from any of the opposite islands (Even at Evening!)



Neverdin is the starter island should you begin within the Al’ Ankh area. You’ll begin with some fundamental gear in addition to a small sailboat. “An historical Arabic Dhow” should you’re . This island has a mountain and some outlets. The outlets promote fundamental meals, water, rum, fishing gear, and lanterns, simply the fundamentals.

Isle of Clear Thoughts

For those who’re in Neverdin and look to the North you will notice the Isle of Clear Thoughts. Sadly it’s uninhabited. It appears like a number of massive jagged mountains from a distance. This island is helpful as a landmark although.

Lions Fang

In case you are on Neverdin and look to the Southeast there’s a probability you will notice Lions Fang. It is usually only a landmark. It appears like a pointy mountain with a a lot smaller sharp mountain subsequent to it protruding of the ocean.

Al’ Nilem

It is an incredible first mission for my part as it’s straight North of Neverdin. Al’ Nilem may be very distinct from a distance because it has some massive picket mining gear on it. The island’s outlets and city are very akin to Neverdin. Just about simply all the fundamentals.

Alchemist’s Island

Relying in your method, the Alchemist’s Island generally is a little distinct as it’s two islands although the Western island is the one with the settlement on it. The port rests between the 2 islands. It has a number of little mountains and a large-ish constructing on it. The Alchemist’s island has a number of worldwide contracts at its port. Additionally Alchemist’s Island lacks all outlets save for one. It sells water bottles and it sells two distinctive gadgets. Elixer and Snake oil. The Power Elixer provides you plenty of vitality, some meals, and a few water. The Snake oil removes plenty of vitality, however provides a little bit of meals and water too. One might not see the purpose of this at first look, nevertheless it’s a great way to rush up your want for sleep if you wish to cross time for any cause.

Albacore City

Albacore City is essentially the most Jap Island, making it a little bit of a ache to get to since my world not less than all the time has a South West prevailing wind. Albacore City can also be a double island with the port in between. The passage is slim so beware. It has a number of outlets and buildings, however most revolve round fish and fishing consider it or not. When crusing to Albacore city watch out as there aren’t any different landmarks round should you cross it, and you’ll probably must tack (zig-zag upwind) to get there. If you cannot see the central island YOU NEED TO TURN AROUND IMMEDIATELY.

Al’ Ankh Academy

This one is neat, however beware should you sail to it as it is vitally small. That you must pay further consideration while you sail to the Academy as you’ll be able to miss it simply. Except you’re shut, this island will appear like slightly constructing in the midst of nowhere. The Central Island can nonetheless be seen however is seems small as I consider it to be the farthest settlement from the central island. I handed this island as soon as and was solely saved as a result of i barely seen it behind my ship whereas trying backwards. This island solely has one barebones store that sells meals and water.

Gold Rock Metropolis

Oh yeah the capitol, the massive metropolis. For those who sail to the center of the large island you can find a port on the within. Watch out for the shallow water markers or you’ll get beached. This island has a fort and plenty of partitions on it. It has all types of cool outlets that promote every little thing, (Besides Elixer and Snake Oil). It has furnishings, grills, fishing, each type of meals, each type of drink, it has maps and navigational instruments, and there is even a store to the facet, you may need to go searching a bit, nevertheless it sells actually costly work. Additionally that is the island the place you should purchase the bigger boat. Test it out when you’ll be able to as it’ll most likely encourage you to place within the hours in sport and ultimately purchase it. Lastly Gold Rock Metropolis is the place you will notice the majority of Worldwide Contacts up for rent.

An vital notice on shallows

You will note these in all places round settlements. They’re there for a cause. For those who get too shut to those you’ll get hung up on the bottom. This generally is a main ache to get out of as you’ll have to get out and push your boat.

Additionally get this

It is a Chip Log, The actual ones are a bit sophisticated, however to make use of this one merely proper click on and throw the little “chip” over the facet of the boat, it’ll prolong and offer you a quantity. That is how briskly you’re going. You’ll be able to fiddle together with your sails whereas that is out and nice tune for optimum pace. Get the Chip log, you may adore it.

Issues I appeared up and could not discover

The Broom: you decide it up and proper click on and it’ll travel. It’ll make your boat lighter in colour. It’ll get darkish once more. It is a enjoyable little chore to do while you’re underway. You too can scroll to regulate the pitch of the broom to get the partitions.

Methods to fish: Get a fishing rod – Get hooks. Drop fishing rod – Proper click on fishing hook field – maintain hook – have a look at fishing rod – Connect hook – “now they are going to chunk” – Proper click on the bobber overboard – anticipate rod to go down “fish chunk” – Scroll backwards to reel it in – REEL SLOWLY. For those who reel too quick the rod will bend an excessive amount of and you’ll lose your hook. Reel slowly permitting the rod to straighten up. Get fish all the best way up – it’ll say accumulate fish, however it’ll drop while you click on so MAKE SURE THE FISH WILL DROP IN THE BOAT.

Suggestions and Tips Freshmen ought to know

– You’ll be able to take a number of contracts, the extra rep you acquire (which you’ll be able to test in your log) The extra contracts you’ll be able to take. Whenever you resolve in your subsequent vacation spot, take as many contracts as you need “to the SAME vacation spot”. Regulate the cargo rely although, you do not need to get caught making an attempt to haul 8 massive grain packing containers as much as the academy or one thing. That is the way you rack up some severe money domestically.

– When you find yourself twiddling with the Helm (Steering Wheel) you most likely left click on to get off of it, this may go away the wheel “limp”. For those who proper click on then you’ll “lock” the wheels place. This may be very helpful if you could regulate your sails whereas turning. There’s plenty of cool issues you are able to do with this trick, one other is to lock a course. (Disclaimer, it is best to nonetheless test typically as you’ll nonetheless drift off target)

– For those who press C whereas in your boat you’ll swap to the ship view.

– All the time preserve an emergency inventory of meals and water and or an emergency elixer after which do your finest to not contact it.

– Enjoyable actual world/sailwind tip, it is unfortunate to carry bananas on boats.

– You’ll be able to connect your beginning map to a wall, I connected mine to the again wall for reference. (Though you’ll be able to test your log for a map)

– For those who’re misplaced and not sure, and also you see any land then sail to it. Extra instances than not it is the island I used to be making an attempt to get to, but when not it’ll provide help to get your bearing when you acknowledge the island.

– IMPORTANT – I swear the map is not 100% correct nevertheless it’s near correct.

Ghetto Navigation

One other phrase could be fundamental level of reference, and “triangulation” if I had two factors. However as I mentioned at first the Central island is seen from any of the islands. This and a compass means that you may by no means really be misplaced.

This is an instance. I am standing on Al’ Nilem and I am holding my compass whereas trying on the central island.

Now if I pay attention to the precise course on the compass I can draw a line from my place to the purpose of reference.

After all you gotta get technical while you go into the massive open ocean, however we’re inexperienced persons, we do the native buying and selling, for now only a trusty compass and an enormous island that may be seen from any of the native islands will do with this easy trick.

Primary Star Studying

One other factor that I’ve discovered by statement is the North Star, it is a fairly straightforward discover by means of the course of the primary night time should you concentrate together with your compass. However because you begin with a compass, this data could also be irrelevant. Nevertheless, discuss with the image to persistently predict the situation of the solar. I do not learn about you however with the absence of clocks it’s good to know when to count on the dawn.

Now Get Out There and Sail

Like I mentioned there’s little to no content material on this superior but sophisticated sport. I hope you get pleasure from crusing on this magical sport as a lot as I do. And possibly with the assistance of my little information right here I saved somebody the headache of looking for a solution to a fundamental query and never with the ability to discover it. I will likely be updating this information hopefully as the sport progresses. Good Luck and Joyful Crusing!
