What about Pandora's box for random events? Anyone build one of those?

Random events are still limited to one a day, so it's pretty bad. You only really want telescopes, jade statues, or parrots. And once you hit the endgame, you don't want telescopes.


I'd add Cherry Trees to the list of handy ones; when your grinding through for upgrades the boost can be handy and Parrots are only good if you lack the 99s of course.

Pandora's just suck, it's kinda rare to not get a random within the day, even only sending out 1 or 2 rounds of voyages. One a day is the limit and if you get that 99/100 anyway why boost it?

Is there anyone else that the thought of doing a random event each time just makes you want to push your fingers into your eyes. I just cannot face doing them any more, especially as the probability of getting the black marketeer event seems quite a bit higher than barmaids tip (to me anyway). I wish they had developed, would develop a few more random events because the same 2 over and over is just painful.

If every pandora's box allowed you to get one extra random every day, would it be worth it?

So I'm going to build some totems, I assume I should focus on having 4 telescopes for now to make sure I can get all the scrolls I want for armor and then switch 2 of them to trade goods once I have my armor scrolls unlocked and am working on scrimshaws/rocktail soup?

Well, scrolls are no use beyond the ones you use to make money, so I'd suggest 3 jade statues at least.


My goal is max port score as soon as possible. Probably should have stated that as well.


Armadyl Drops : 4 Hilts; 3 Chestplates; 2 Chainskirts; 1 Helmet; 1 Buckler; 2 Shard 1; 2 Shard 2; 1 Shard 3

Nex : 1 Zaryte Bow

Kalphite King : 1 Drygore Rapier ; 1 Drygore Longsword : 1 Drygore Offhand Rapier : 1 Drygore Offhand Longsword

Cherry trees don't do enough. By the time you're building totems, you're already pretty far along, and it's unlikely it'll pay for itself. If you could get it earlier, maybe, but once you're heading into the Pincers you should start being more concerned with story and trade good missions.

If every pandora's box allowed you to get one extra random every day, would it be worth it?

I already don't do randoms at all anymore so I'mma say no. :ugeek:

Is it worth having assassins tell you that their target has a hat, when everybody in the port has a hat?

They really skimped on the Random events for ports imo.
They could've at the very least done:
1) 2-3 DIFFERENT events per person.
2) Included events for John Strumm (til he dies), the Navigator and the Seasinger
3) Included a few events for the random nameless and even perhaps added a few more characters eg chamber maid type person for the lodgings, the shipwright, artisan in the workshop.

The Black Marketeer one annoys me no end.
Why 90% of the time do all 5 give the same dam clue?
Great it's someone with a hat! They all have dam hats!
Why like 50% of the time do they just give wrong clues?
Oh it's a woman you say, let's go click a woman "well thats the wrong gender for a start"
Ok that last guy was a liar give it to me straight, blue top you say, let's click one of them "Thats not right their top is a different colour"

The very first assassin event I did, the first four clues were "The target is wearing a hat. That should narrow it down." There was only one guy who wasn't wearing a hat. Then the fifth clue was "The target is not wearing a hat." I legitimately thought it was supposed to be a joke.

Honestly, given the number of available targets and the pointlessness of their clues, I simply click on every available target until someone finally dies ... :rolleyes:

I don't mind the color clues because they are at least easily recognizable, but when they say ,"their top was a different style" I just want to choke them. No one caaaaaaares (colors are usually too garish to be considered fashionscaping).

I do this when they decide that their initial clue is man/woman or hat/no hat. First, they're all highly androgynous, and second, does a bandana count as a hat? I don't even know.

Crazy ports day with 2x 5 chi, 5 lacquer, 5 plate, 5 bones and 30 spice.

Scroll 61/80 a success as considering building two more telescopes for the hell of it.

I have ~80 lacquer, ~120 plate, and ~100 chi. Got to the pincers a month late. Skip all voyages that aren't worth my time now (I have a full crew). Only have 90+ herb and 90+ prayer. Hope it helps!

edit: Here's my exact count etc:

I also have a 5 lacquer mission out with a 76% chance.
