Where can I buy a boat on the surface (Kriszan area) ??

Recommended Posts

I looked around the docks, but don't see anyone to buy a boat from.  There's a boat sitting in the shop, when I click on it, it says "maybe you can find someone to buy it from", but I cannot find any such person??

 

(BTW, I've purchased the game)

You can't ever buy a boat. Some places you use the Orb of Thralni to reach, and otherwise you use boats that immediately transport you to where you go without being able to freely go where you want.

Wow... that's pretty sad; one of the things I enjoyed about the original A3, was being able to tool around in a boat and explore out-of-the-way places... Maybe I'll just go back to that version, though I think I'll be stuck at 800x600 if I do...

In the original A3, you could buy a boat in Upper Avernum, but not on the surface.

No??  Okay, failed memories, been awhile since I played.  I remember tooling around in boats, but maybe that was earlier Avernae...

So far, the only boat I've found you can buy is in Upper Avernum. It will take you to Silverlocke's Hut on that small island, though for the life of me, I don't know what it will take for her (?) to talk to me. You won't need it on the surface after you get the Orb of Thralni, and w/ cheap ferries.

Silverlocke won't sell until you've done 3 plague quests.

 

You can get anywhere you want in Upper Avernum by Orb and several places you can't by boat.

Hokay, I can live with that...
I *still* miss tooling around on the rivers (I *think* it was in A1), checking out territory, but none of the monster bands could reach me... and I could reach places that I simply couldn't reach by land.  I loved the feeling of exploring!!!

I used to enjoy going off exploring on the water in EftP, although the boat pathfinding was awful compared to land pathfinding.

That was probably A1. I too love the sense of freedom and exploration that is so prevalent in the first game. Naturally, you spend a lot of time boating around in A2 as well, but then you have Empire invasion on your mind. Come to think of it, the "boats" we see on the surface are actually large fishing or trading vessels and would likely be a tad too difficult to handle for a small group of people with no experience of sailing, let alone the open sea.
