Skill and improvement
  • Can be dyed using 36488/10946g of paint.


A sturdy one-masted merchant ship with a flat bottom.

A medium difficulty ship, the cog requires fewer sails but more wooden materials than the corbita and is harder to create. One large advantage it has over the similarly-sized corbita is that the second passenger to board is put into the crow's nest, giving them a great view of the surrounding area.

Cogs are great merchant ships as they are a large size, not difficult to build and as a result inexpensive to buy. They are good for long journeys but are impractical for short hops, especially in light winds.

Vessel details

  • Requires 22 mind logic to be able to command it.
  • Passengers: 1 captain + 8 crew.
  • Maximum speed: 33.22 km/h (solo, with a gale in the back)
  • Hold Capacity: 29 large crates. see #Loadable Items and #Useful Quantities for more info.

  • Ships with a quality of less than 10 cannot be commanded.
    • This includes ships whose damage percentage would calculate to bring the quality below 10 (eg. a 12 quality ship with 17 damage calculates to a ship below 10 quality).
    • Repairing a ship can sometimes result in the ship retaining a quality above 10, thus being commandable once again.
  • The quality of each of the keel sections affects the chance of being created.
  • Ships cannot be hauled up ladders
