So this is what could happen to you when you try and do the last quest on the Pumpkin Farm chain lol. You have to go into enemy territory to deliver a package. Sadly this is what happened to us.

Well you get a normal scarecrow (small ones) for free. Then you do the chain quest to get the Pumpkin scarecrow, which is way better and bigger. But there's some dangers to it, at the time we didn't have a speed boat. So we only had a row boat ones. So it's a lot harder alone or with a row boat.

You can get the Speed Boat at level 1 assuming you have Labor Points and Materials to build it and the Blue Print. There's no restriction as to when you can get them.

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why ArcheAge is so awesome!
(Happened to me as well, by the way. Okay, not me exactly, but party members of mine that did the quest with me. Luckily I had stealth xD)

Painful. I like how you look at the land and you're almost there and then unfortunately, so is the speedboat!

I was nervous as can be when I was crossing the ocean in my row boat to finish the scarecrow quest. Luckily I was untouched!

When everyone is in rowboats trying to finish the scarecrow quest we will all look like a school of fish hoping the other guy gets eaten before you.

It is pretty easy to finish the quest, since to get it count - you dont need to land, you need to get to specific area at sea. If using Trimaran/Harpoon boat its pretty safe as you can mostly avoid any enemies due to high speed. On most servers, playeres/guilds of your faction also offer shipping/escort services: i.e. getting multiple people on board for some payment and sailing together, which is safer (if the person can be trusted).

Real problem is that end area is safezone for enemy meaning - you cant attack them, but they can attack you. Making fights there a bigger hassle than just fighting at high seas - i.e. enemy mages can just jump your boat, put down your sails, and start casting meteors with you not being able to do anything until they damage you.

Also, not in prime time, you probably can finish this quest alone even in rowboat since the area is not camped all the time (its not actually profitable to camp it, you get little rewards for packages there, so mostly its newbie PKs doing it for a while until get bored)

Yes, I agree fully and there is nothing more that I can add to what you have said which I agree with haha

The cool thing is, I've done it at times where nothing happened. I've had no issues turning it in. But that certain thing we got screwed lol. Good thing about this game is, your never really safe. You may or may not make it.

I like that Quest, I play a Ferre on the Eastern Continent and the Western Continent have completely sponsored my Speedboat and other Things with that Quest. ;)

How? I play the first Days as Trading Chest Diver. 3-4 Gold Coins for every Chest. :D

What that Video at the TE's Post didn't show was the many Mobs at the Ocean that kill most of the Enemies with her Chests, so I only must Dive where the Mobs are and there they are... 5-6 Chests was no rarity. ^^

I self made the Quest after I get Level 25... Stealth is really useful, the Western Continent never known that I was there with my Chest, that I gave the NPC for 2 Coins. :p

This is needed because of the rush of "new" players we got after this outage.

I think Trino just opened up the flood gates for Bots to flood the game to make it seem busier than normal.
