I think I've seen an engineer recently, same with some Arc crew like shopkeeper/first mate

Might just be my really bad luck though :P

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

The crew lodgings (speed) has no effect?

It says better quality speed crew so I thought that would only make my chances slimmer.

@Sara the only arc crew I have seen is the first mate and I saw him 3 times in 2 months. Because the first mate is kind of unique I think it's the only 1 which can appear and I think you imagined seeing an engineer with them.

I'm pretty sure you can still get engineers, the chance is just really low, lower than oxheads, perhaps even lower than oxheads with the right flavour text.

unfortunately you don't get engineers in the crew for hire once you have gotten past a certain stage in pop. I've been trying for 2 months to get another.

Incorrect. I got two engineers the past week during my daily rolls. I considered hireing them, but I don't even have full ports armor so no to that.

isn't the selection in crew largely based on the region you have active during rolls?

It doesn't appear so. I roll and equal number of all region crew every day.

Curious, is there any particular reason you're skipping non-steel/jade voyages?

For reference, here's where I'm at:

I think having a big mix of regular resources will work out best for the eventual port expansion. I doubt any port buildings/anything new will only take steel, for example.

If your looking for certain crew if you change what region you're visiting does that increases chances at all of getting certain crew? Like jade merchants and jods instead of just staying in steel region and getting mostly steel crew?

I skipped the lower ones because my work schedule only allows me to send two rounds of ships a day, and if i send for anything lower than jade, i'd be unable to send out another steel in time for the second round (my first and second is more or less 9-10h apart from each other).

Plus, I think if you fail a voyage and the game took resources from lower resource based on a ratio, which meant that you could waste several voyages by just failing one, therefore, I skipped them. Plus i was only really interested in getting steel.

Fair enough. Sounds like you might build up some other resources if your schedule allowed for it.

As far as failing voyages go, I don't think losing resources is to be worried about. Sure, the occasional three digit loss of bamboo hurts (I'm lucky to get more than one bamboo voyage per week, and I almost never get it stocked by the black marketeer so one failure could easily cost me a week+) but it's rare enough to be essentially ignored IMO.

I think the telescopes for scroll mission boosts give an additive boost to frequency of scrolls because I have been getting a LOT more ever since I made 2 telescopes
