Answer: When they're a Privateer.

Despite being a Shipwright for several years now and on the verge of reaching the magic R20 SB, I noticed recently that my in game Charcter Information has changed from 'Shipwright' to 'Privateer'.

Have other Shipwrights noticed a similar change?

I did a little research and came across this link:

http://unchartedwaters.wikia.com/wiki/Strategy_and_tactics_certificate

... which refers to the anomaly by which someone taking on the appropriate 'Strategy and Tactics' quest for Shipwright is given a Guild Card for the Privateer job, even though the skills attained by the quest are Shipwright appropriate.

When I completed this quest many moons ago, it was OK because I'm sure Shipwright was on the list and I was awarded the correct 'Shipwright' title. But now I find my status has been changed to 'Privateer'.

In a bid to sort this out I returned to Lisbon, thinking maybe if I repeated the quest I'd get my correct title back, but that didn't happen. In fact, I saw no Shipwright title on the list, just Privateer.

But Privateer is a completely different job to Shipwright - in fact, I think I'm right in saying that you can purchase the Privateer job from Tunis for around D130,000. And by doing so I assume you get the correct Privateer set of skills and not the ones for Shipwright.

So, what's going on? Apart from the fact that I have no interest in being a Privateer and am rather proud of my Shipwright status (common as it may be) as far as everyone else is concerned, I'm a Privateer. I'm none too pleased about that.

Surely, this is a glitch serious enough to warrant remedial action.

Where's the Shipwright Union Head Office?

Thanks and all the best, mateys!

Just thought I'd bump this thread up the board to point out that this issue was acknowledged and fixed in a later game update. So, anyone completing the 'Latest tactics' quest from Lisbon and taking the job of 'Shipwright' will be allocated the correct job title.
