    As the title states, if you use the Transport feature to move a character from one city to another, Shakatu is no longer appearing as an option from Ancado Harbor. The only option is Valencia. If you go to Valencia, only Ancado is an option. Is this a potential bug or a deliberate change?

    No, it hasn't. You could transport your character to Valencia City via the "x city" - Shakatu - Ancado - Valencia route. And it worked the other way too, so you should have an option to transport from ancado to shakatu, I used that route for character transport many times.

    It has been like this for ages. When I first began in February you could only transport to Ancado harbour from Valencia and vice versa. You could transport to Shakatu from the other towns, just not from Valencia or Ancado. I agree though that this is stupid.

    Yeah, I hate how they changed it, now I think the easiest way is to use balloons to altinova, then transport... I'm probably gonna stop trading because of this change.

    That change caught me by surprise, as it is not in the patch notes.
    I remember them adding Ancado<>Shakatu transport a while ago, now removing it again seems odd. Lets see if it was by mistake.
    Having the route is fine, you need multiple transports to go from anywhere to Valencia city. So it's not like you can get characters in and out Val City quickly.

    It hasn't been like this for ages, four times a day my barter alt starts in Shakatu, sails the Hakoven route, suicides, spawns town (Ancado) and character transports back to Shakatu via Disconnect window. It seems like not only is Shakatu-Ancado broken but anywhere-Shakatu. I submitted a bug report, hopefully this is fixed soon. Many barterers use the same strategy for their Valencia corridor trades

    Also other transfer options got removed. You cannot go from any town to town (excluding east of desert) anymore.
    Additionally you cannot use the old moon balloon anymore between Valencia city and Calpheon. It feels like an old version of the character transporting module made it into the patch.
    Item transport has seen no change, none that i noticed.

    My first ticket received a 'pasted' response about item transport but I replied with clarification and screenshots, hopefully enough to be looked at again. Maybe a CM can forward this?

    You stated the exact reason why they removed it.

    Don't try to cheat the system and just sail normally in the future.

    There's nothing cheating about that? I wouldn't even call it clever use of game mechanics. It makes 0 sense to completely remove a way for players to 'transport' their characters to one half of the map because a dozen barterers are using the mechanic to save an hour a day.

    Piggybacking on this post...

    I noticed that
    this week's patch MASSIVELY nerfed my daily fishing routine without so much as a single sentence detailing so in the patch notes.

    Every single day I AFK fish at Tooth Fairy Cabin while i'm at work. When I get home from work I use the character transport feature to send my lifeskiller fishing alt from TFC to Shakatu and then I play on my main character for 1 hour while I wait for my fisher to be moved. After 1 hour I switch to my fisher, now in Shakatu, sell my fish and use the character transport function to send it back to Grana (I autopath from Grana back to TFC at the end of each night before bed).


    This patch totally removed my ability to transport characters to Shakatu. It can no longer be selected from the drop down transportation menu.

    PLEASE FIX.

    Can we please get GM/CM response on this issue?

    There was no mention of this in the patch notes and it has completely nerfed the method I've used to fish and get around for the last 1 1/2 years.

    Additionally you used to be able to use this character transport system to go from Valencia to Ancado Harbor and from Ancado to Shakatu and that is also no longer available as an option.

    PLEASE FIX.

    I wrote a ticket about this and I got general response that they are passing this to their QA team. Eh.... This is so painful. Before 8.01 patch I was moving my alts to Valencia via character transport. Now all are stuck there :/
