    Yes, please move the ferry! I have a home in Wizards Rest, and also in Rift's End. The cost of replacing shoe leather is sending me broke!:D:p

    Might be intentional? Is the 'Hidden' Vale supposed to be isolated?

    As the capital all roads should lead to Brittany, and at least in regards being a trade route it makes sense. Also I wonder how many POTs in the Brit vicinity were influenced by that ferry from the vale.

    That would make perfect sense if HV only had high level/high challenge/4+ skull zones or something.
    But it has many starting-out/low-level/easy quests as well as content, so that seems unlikely, at least for July 28th.
    It is a bit strange that it will be behind a control point, regardless of whether you start in Ardoris, Aerie, or Resolute. That is a head-scratcher, for sure.

    Why are there boats going to and from Novia and the vale? All the npc's say that's not happening.

    Smugglers. You'll have to travel inside an empty ale barrel.

    they also say that boats will resume from ravensmoor once that quest is completed, not kingsport.

    Well, if they eliminate the boats then they might as well just eliminate the Hidden Vale, because nobody would be going there.

    If you look at the map (post #5 above), you'll see the dotted line that links Brittany to Hidden Vale.
    Currently that boat (if you board it from the Hidden Vale overworld) takes you to Ardoris (on the Novia overworld) - and vice versa......

    The boat by Kingsport (the King's port) is there (and currently links to the overworld at Ardoris) because Brittany is not in yet, but Brittany is where it's supposed to go.

    Every "region" in Novia is behind some control point, and the region Brittany is in (Regalis) is no exception.

    hmm.. wycliffe, maybe? when you report back after completing ravensmoor. that's why there's a lighthouse down there on the west coast. cannot check again until after the wipe, since i've completed it.

    I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean. The Hidden Vale has never been isolated - not with the fast-travel ferry to Novia and with the lunar rift to Solace Bridge. When the ferry destination is moved to Britanny, that won't make the Hidden Vale be any worse off than other places, and instant access to the main city in the game can be interpreted as being a great advantage.

    It would make sense to have a second ferry from the Hidden Vale to Drachvald. That region could use more access to beginner areas without having to travel through control points.

    I'd rather a second boat to take you to Longfell if there is going to be a second. That makes more sense to me than Drachvald.

    Not true. You can get from Blood River to Brittany without going through a control point.
    (Aerie, boat to Etceter, walk to Brittany.)

    Why would that make more sense? The Hidden Vale is located right off the coast of Drachvald. It is so close that you could swim, if the game would let you. Oh, I know, it's because your POT is located right next to Longfall! :p
