Can you copy/pasta his response? Can't get on forums, sorry to be a demanding pill :P

 

 

Succeeded my 25 laquer mission... now to wait for the 25 plate/chi missions so i can attempt them.... again......

 

 

also, what is the order of shit i should be buying in pincers? been working on getting some crew of each sort, but I do wonder if i should try to save for the steel rudder, good idea or not?

 

I woud also presume the other ship upgrades are only worth buying once I have a full steel crew?

Hey,

 

So this is on my radar. I'm hoping to change this to work similarly to Nex armour (In terms of degrade mechanics).

 

Remember this is an intention, not a promise, and I can't give you an ETA... but I'll try and keep you updated.

 

Cheers,

Edam

And the plot thickens: apparently you can't repair PoP armours at any degradation level, you can only repair it if it's 0%. Now they're just being malicious. What am I supposed to do if I want to go with my friends to boss hunting for a few hours, but my PoP is at 15%? I am supposed to go [bleep] around to degrade it first? [bleep] Jagex. Either they're most malicious people, or they're grossly incompetent. Half these issues(if they aren't being malicious that is) should have been tested for, 2 minutes after they designed the armours, 2 months ago.

You can do this, since combat stance = degrade.

 

In this whole debate there are two sides. One say way can't Jagex just let T85 be better than T80. On the other side, they say, why should it be when T80 is harder to get. I really think there is one easy solution to this, and to keep PoP from the dead content bin.

 

To get Nex armor you have to go through a long series or preparation that takes you near end game.

 

1) You need the combat stats to fight her in a group of 4 players.

2) You need the related combat skills to boost your performance. (95 prayer, 96 herblore, etc if anymore)

3) You need the resources to preform at Nex with reasonable expectations.

4) You need to put in continuous resources and time until you recieve to items for which you are hunting for (or the money to buy them)

5) Once you have what you want (say full Virtus), you need have a method for repairing the this items for continuous use.

 

Port is like Nex ALMOST. The port armor requires 90 in an access skill and in most cases 90 in a related skill (say to make Tetsu). The resource you need are the scrolls and trade goods. Those take time to get. And like Nex gear, you need money to repair it. But once you get the armor that's it. No need to visit PoP again if that's all you want. Simple fix, make it so that trade goods repair the armor, not money.

 

Fix it so it degrades like Nex make it so that trade goods go into repairs, not nearly as much to make it, but enough to warrant players to stay in ports. If this has already been sad, forgive me, 162 pages is a lot of reading. :D

 

EDIT:

 

As Kaida said, ask and ye shall receive.

Speaking of Meg, I haven't seen her today.

 

Did I mess something up last week, am I just not seeing her for some reason or is this a glitch?

The only thing I know of to do with Meg being 'missing' is:

If you just unlocked port she's over in the corner near the Shipwright not near the portal.

Can anyone provide current prices for:

 

All tetsu parts

Death lotus chest

Sea-singer's robe top

 

Also how are those to be traded - GE or you have to search a bayer some other way?

 

I am having doubts wether to make tradeble or untradable versions - seing how they backed on the offensive bonuses + the worse degrade

 

Thank you in advance

 

Tetsu chest around 50m, legs sold mine for 35m about 3-4 days ago? Helm is like 10m

 

Not sure about others

 

Got a huge RC lamp from meg...hell yes

42 plates, still not to Pincers. I might have made Superior Tetsu Helm today if my 97% scroll voyage didn't fail. Oh well, I'm only in a JaGEx rush to make the full set anyway. And at this rate, I'll have enough plates to make the legs before I'll have the final scroll for helm.

Meg has the strange property that she doesn't (always) appear the first time you log in past midnight/early morning on Wednesday. She'll be there the second time you log or if you log after a few hours.

Apparently there's still one conscientious voice left at Jagex. Thanks, Mod Edam! I hope he *does* get the job done.

Question: Will anyone but willing to write a little guide on crew types, upgrades, captains one should seek, etc. in each region. A lot of information was planted here, and I'd think it'd be good to compile it for future reference to, I dunno, being a good port master, and making the most use of Player Owned Ports.

It still should be there if you didn't send her on her way!

Not sure if this counts as a double post this many days apart >.<

 

Anyone else having issues getting Oxheads? I unlocked them my first day and have since rolled every crew for 10 days and only seen one.

So I finally unlocked the pincers this morning. Something weird happened though.

 

I had two voyages for the missionary before I unlocked the Pincers which were for bones and experience. Yet, once I got the pop-up telling me the Pincers were unlocked I instantly had another Missionary voyage for the 25 plate.

 

Can't complain I guess.

After completing the Shambling's Lair mission, your first crew roll will always be an Oxhead. After that it takes a while before you roll any more. I'm at two in like two weeks.

 

Had this today. Only got 60k XP though. :P.

I just rolled my third one, but they're hard to get. I've also all of a sudden run out of chimes, which is really annoying.
