- For the Midnight Ocean pirate, see Radar (pirate).
All player ships have a radar, the ability to detect other nearby ships that are sailing nearby. The radar shows all ships within a range of slightly less than a league, and also indicates the might ring colors of those ships. However, the radar does not indicate the type of ship, nor the type of opponent sailing it.
Using the radar
Astute pillagers will note it is easiest to find target brigands or players by watching the radar from the crow's nest (using the Ye known world map). Once a target has been found, close the map screen and attempt to engage the ship from the crow's nest. The radar can be viewed while outside of the crow's nest, however the visibility of the crow's nest makes radar more beneficial.
