The ship speed benchmarking test!
Tests start at Daerwon waypoint.
Measure time for round-trip. Post results to this thread.
Maybe do a test for flying too... and add more categories which affect speed.

The water speed route (200 sw, 200 nw, 200 ne, 200 se) does include at least 2 tradelanes, I think I actually sailed on 3. Perhaps we should find a no tradelane course for pure water speed?

For reference, here's el cheapo solution - I'll post more here as I develop my sailing.

[Water-speed]: Daerwon, cruise 200 sw, 200 nw, 200 ne, 200 se

Time 8 minutes
Class: 2, Sailor: 10x4, Navigator: 5, Reinforcements: No, Condition: Few small holes, Gust of Wind: No, Bless Ship: No

[Tradelane-speed]: Daerwon, cruise 900 sw, 900 ne

Actually this is probably not the best way to measure ship speed.
I think Glace had the best way where he did 'sail 100 e' at open sea and just counted the amount of ticks the ship took. Then he increased the amount of sailing until another tick was done. So in the end he was able to say my ship does 12 rooms per tick or something like that.

Someone figure out the method and start posting real speeds for us :)

Just as another data point, here is info I gathered as I upgraded my sailors: Luc_port is obvious, 'sw_lae" is the waypoint in the sw corner of laenor, that continues east along the south part of the continent: This is for a class 3 ship, pristine, no spells on.

Traveling from luc to sw_lae takes 2:18 to 2:20 with all level 4 sailors.
Traveling from luc to sw lae takes 1:54 with bless with all level 4 sailors.
Traveling from luc to sw lae takes 1:56 with all level 5 sailors.
Traveling from luc to sw_lae takes ~1:30 when had all level 7 sailors
Traveling from luc to sw_lae takes 1:29 with 1 level 8, rest level 7.
Traveling from luc to sw_lae takes 1:26 with 2 level 10, 1 level 8, rest level 7.

'whereami' seems to be a good way to count the number of rooms per tick, at least when moving near a continent (it doesn't give proper coordinates out in the middle of the ocean). Just start cruising in some direction and check your coordinates each tick.

FWIW, my completely bare-bones class 3 ship with a level 5 navigator can do 6 rooms per tick on the open sea, and 30 rooms per tick on a tradeline.

I propose that you sail along a tradeline (that supports whereami) that is long enough to support 5 cruising movements. (The southmost e/w tradeline on laenor is long enough for mine, as is the n/s tradeline in lucentium for instance).

Class: 3, Sailor: 124 levels (1x 11, 3x 10, 3x 9, 8x 7), Speed: 14x6, Navigator: 6, Reinforcements: Speed/Speed/None, Condition: Pristine, Gust of Wind: No, Bless Ship: No
The ship is very fast in the water.

5 cruises along tradeline: 369 (73.8/cruise)
5 cruises off of tradeline: 61 (12.2/cruise)
10 cruises off of tradeline: 123 (12.3/cruise)


Class: 5, Sailor: 19x 9, 6x 7, Speed: 25x 7, Navigator: 6, Reinforcements: None, Condition: Pristine, Gust of Wind: No, Bless Ship: No

5 cruises along tradeline: 248 (49.6/cruise)
10 cruises off of tradeline: 82 (8.2/cruise)


Class: 5, Sailor: 5x 10, 20x 7, Speed: 25x 7, Navigator: 5, Reinforcements: Speed/Speed/Airspeed, Condition: Pristine, Gust of Wind: No, Bless Ship: No
The ship is very fast in the water.
The ship is rather quick in the air.

5 cruises along tradeline: 227 (45.4/cruise)
10 cruises off of tradeline: 90 (9.0/cruise)


Class: 3, Sailor: 15x 7, Speed: 5x 6 Navigator: 6, Reinforcements: Ramming/ramming, Condition: Pristine, Gust of Wind: No, Bless Ship: No

tradelines: 59.6/cruise
off tradelines: 9.8/cruise
