After all these months I FINALLY got a 10k captain that beats my pre-existing captains in terms of preset traits and even he is a seafarer with a tactician trait.
They reallllllllllly need to give us a means to remove traits from captains
I agree. It just seems like the perfect rare trait-styled voyage, similar to how Oxhead & Horseface is a good rare crew member and joint voyages are semi-rare. Hell it can even be terribly hard and only available in the last region if that helps concerns of difficulty.
Right now I'm trying to desperately build up my chimes again. Burning through nearly 200k chimes in the past month or so has secured me a combat captain with only Plucky as its trait (now has x3 tactician), a seafaring captain with x2 +100 seafaring (now has x2 1% seafaring), and a feral chimera with Leader trait. So many shitty captains...so many shitty crew members...*shudders*
I've also sold off all my scrims and stopped flipping them for fear of divination causing the price to fall out on them. I really think that's why we're getting a ports update so soon, not because of "slots" that need filling out. I mean, they do need filling but they could've easily waited longer.
