Well today brought with it the end of the CBT, while this does mean that we'll no longer be getting up at the crack of dawn to login and play (poor us ), it also means that it's the last day that we'll be able to explore the landscape, build ships and houses and pretty much everything else that we've got up to this past week.
Fallanx, Katiechops and the guys from AAPortal continued in their efforts to build a ship, after their failed effort the day before, they got off to a bang. After they built their ship they of course decided that it needed to be tested out in combat - it had nothing to do with Katiechops getting excited and firing off the cannons at passing boats, honest!!
All the madness of their initial naval warfare can be seen on Fafa TV.
(Chops + Naval Warfare = WIN!)
As we've shown you how building houses works here a a few videos to show off building a ship.

I was still playing my Ferres character, although I had changed the spec a little to include the Death class rather than Illusion, thus I was now a Butcher rather than a Guide. As I'd played a Mage archetype on Day 1 I was already quite familiar with the Death class. It added quite a bit of utility to the Ranger/Assasin I was already playing. One of the major gripes from Aspira when he was live streaming my character was that I never had any Healing potions - he's just not that good at kiting
The Death class gave access to several DoT's, one that slowed the target as you channeled another that sapped health from the target as you channeled - these came in very handy and I'm sure had Aspira played on Day 6 he would have appreciated the heal at least.
