11-Dec-2012 - Player-Owned Ports

Found this on rsof - crew for maximizing trade goods

QFC: 98-99-342-64231656

He's assuming nautical shipwright which is suboptimal in my opinion - morale is more important, and allows you to max port score.

He's recommending a speed captain which makes no sense at all.

4 merchants seems more than you need because you won't be getting that many voyages you can do simultaneously anyway.

 

I do agree with his conclusions on tiger riders though, especially considering that spices are meh anyway (imo). The only reason to keep 5 tigers is scroll missions.

I agree - speed captain seems worthless to me. Give me two morale, two SF and one combat.

 

Four merchants is overkill - seems like a lot of days you won't roll four trade good voyages total, much less at once. Two at the most.

 

I would go:

5 Morale

6 SF

4/5 Combat

4 Judge

4 Ox

2/1 Merch

 

This is just gut feeling, no calculations done.

Just another adventurer reroll, 3rd day in a row that I have gotten an adventurer reroll from the daily Random event. I got another scroll + 5 Chi mission. I think my luck is slowly turning around.

4 judge is too much, 3 merch is okay. I'd say 5/6/4-5 basics (mor/sf/cb), 3 merch, 2-3 judge, 4 ox.

Why would even they should work. Simply not, people keep them for more trade goods.

Okay, so in case anyone cares, I can confirm that it is possible to get two randoms in the same server day.

I just finished the barmaid event (you can see that in my chat) when i checked a mission and immediately got the black marketeer event. You can see the random event icon on the minimap.

 

 

I didn't do a random yesterday. So it still works out to be one random per day, but this is confirmation that you can have two in one day.

The icons don't disappear until you reload the port though, right? That's the case with Meg anyway.

I'd ask when did you get the barmaid event?

 

Sure you just did it then checked and got the marketeer, but did you get the barmaid event today or did you get it yesterday and just not complete it? (ergo it's not todays random event, its yesterdays)

So I'm 99% to the pincers, and I have everything built including a jade statue and a cherry tree. What should I use the other two totem spots on?

Either two telescopes, or a telescope and a pandora's box. I built a box after going a whole day of pincer voyages without a random, annoyed me greatly.

I have Jade Statue, Telescope, and Pandora's Box. I'm kind of regretting the Jade Statue obviously since it does literally nothing. After I finish upgrading my workshop, I think I'm adding a second telescope, and eventually I'll replace the statue with a parrot.

I built 4 telescopes and still don't have scroll missions most days. :mad:

Ok so on a 300 cherrywood mission, I get 333 cherry wood. 30 of that comes from the 10% warehouse bonus. So... the cherry tree provides a whole 1% bonus to resources. They might as well be cosmetic items it seems.

Do Telescopes even stack? Is that confirmed?

I have heard conflicting accounts of this: some people believe they do stack, while others think not.

 

Totems in general give a very small boost that in most cases doesn't amount to much. Regardless, I have 4 telescopes.

May as well go with 4 telescopes (I do as well). What else would you use it on?

 

* XP missions? I'll pass

* Jade statues? Since they give a whopping 1 spice gain on one mission, pass

* 1% resources? Hahahaha

* Pandora's box? I get my standard issue one random per day without them.

seeing as none of the totems are actually worth building at the moment (to the point where it's a must have), i'm just saving the resources in case they actually do become useful

I just did them all with the though of a more fulfilled port... Except that mocking ass parrot.

I had almost no scrolls for weeks (took me from day 1 to pincers to get full tetsu, doing every scroll), but build two telescopes and have I only missed two days of the last three weeks. So from my awfully small sample I would say that telescopes are a necessity to finish all the recipes in a timely fashion. I have heard similar reports from others too.

 

I agree the others are not worth it, but telescopes might be the exception.

I wouldn't say necessity

Day 1 > Pincers 0 totems

I have rocktail soup, death lotus body, death lotus legs, seasinger body, seasinger legs, tetsu body and 2/4 tetsu legs found and that was with a good smattering of failed scroll voyages along the way and a few I skipped due to too high reqs/stories
