So my first character in POE 2 is your, typical good guy, he helps everyone and generally tries to please everyone. I'm currently on good terms with all factions, even the Principi pirates and my problem is, I can't find anyone to engage in ship combat. From my understanding, all NPC ships are part of one of the factions, but if I'm on good relations with all factions, no one will attack me? I managed to get attacked by a slaver once but that was it. I don't want to attack pirates either since I want to stay on good relations with all factions (if that is possible).

You can attack any ship if you drive yours on them.

From what I've seen, attacking people at sea has no impact on your relationship with their respective faction. I imagine the thought process was something along the lines of,  If you kill them all or sink their ships, there's no one to inform the faction that you did so. If it does have an impact, its definitely minor as I've attacked pretty much every single ship in the game so far and none of the factions have locked me out of their quests or anything yet.

I didn't know that. This definitely useful strategy, I still probably won't attack merchants for roleplay reasons but I might as well attack pirates :D Thanks.

One thing to note is that the ships are finite. One you take down every ship there is, that's that. You're the only captain in the region :D Wish the factions got regular reinforcements..

A more dynamic faction ship system would be cool - enemy factions hunting you etc. That’s entire new system to build though...

Same here. Would be good to have more ships out there. Doesn't have to be unique ships like the bounties and such, but just a random Vailian Galleon and suchlike that you can take down without getting a bounty or standard.

 

Thankfully I still have many ships to go after, but it would be cool and fit the theme of the game to have regular reinforcements so that the seas don't become nigh on empty.

Has anyone notice on reputation page of your main character if it changes if you attack to much the ship of 1 faction ?
