PVE - I and many others feel the price for ships is to steep. While adding so many more things that cost gold to craft and maintain... we are not able to generate enough gold to compensate for the rise in items require gold, taking away from in game enemies, and the limited ways (to include competition for the ways) to acquire the gold are taking away from being able to make sufficient ships to sail out and survive in this game and get to a point to enjoy. No one prosperers from taking the gold they earned for the ships. It ends up going right back to the game. It takes entirely way to long to build up sufficient tames for valuable enough maps with out the ships adequate enough to transport them as well. I and again many others would feel a reduction in cost for all ships would be a start to helping the community.
