We’ve hotfixed the game to update how Shipyards work and make a few quality of life improvements.

General
• Rare Naval Missions have an increased chance to appear.
• The bonuses provided by assist equipment, such as Ammo Reserves or Automated Sky Scanner, have been increased by 100%.
• Increasing the chance of success on a naval mission will now also decrease the chance a ship will be destroyed on failure. If the mission success chance is increased to 90% or greater, no ships will be lost on the mission.

Blockade Missions
• Blockade Mission duration is now 30 minutes (was 4 hours).
• Blockade Missions will respawn after 7 days (was 5 days).
• The Oil cost for Blockade Missions is now 50 (was 100).

Crews
• The bonus chance to Mission success provided by Human or Undead crews will be 50% higher.
• The bonus chance to Missions success provided by a Pandaren crew will be 33% higher
• The Pandaren Crew bonus will apply to Missions that are 12 hours or longer (was 18 hours).

The changes above are all live now. Here are a couple of notes to keep in mind:

• If you try to use a scroll that instantly completes a Blockade mission that was already in progress when we made this hotfix, it will reset the time on the mission.
• Blockade Missions that were already in progress will still need 4 hours to complete.

We’ll see you at the Shipyard!

I, for one, have never - ever - seen a Blizzard representative at my Shipyard. I'd probably be freaked out if I did. I also have not visited my ship yard in several days thanks to my Town Hall naval command table.


Well then that's why you've been missing me.

I know that I go to my shipyard regularly to build new ships, as I'm still not satisfied with the crews on each of my ships and I keep decommissioning old ones and creating new ones.

Why is this the only time a thread was created for a hotfix over a hated feature. Sounds like they're secretly trying to get positive feedback... I know it to be true.


Or, you know, we wanted to get the information out there and this is a good way to do it.

Wait a second, you can decommission ships?!


Correct. On the Fleet tab of a Naval management table, right-click on a ship for the Decommission option. You have to have a full Fleet.
