Recommended Posts

:wall: Didn't realize until I'd completed the scroll that I was unlocking Ranged crit, and not Cruelty. Basically... worthless...

6 chi sent out at 94%, 5 lacquer sent out at 85%, 5 plate sent out at 94% and 30 spice sent out at 94%. What a good day... Finished my tetsu helm to complete the set. Now I'm just 8 chi from finishing sea singer now. 6 of it is on its way and hopefully passes.

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

I'm putting together a team of 5 engineers because thats what I study in college, they are quite rare once you've unlocked every region lol

Despite the fact that they are completely useless and are actually detrimental to your progress in ports?

 

You will need all 25 avaliable spaces to make the most of your voyages, having 20 crews for 20 crew spaces is exactly what Engineering teaches you not to do (lack of flexibility). With only 20 spaces, you will be at the mercy of RNG giving you voyages that you have no crew left for. Having 25 active and useful crews drastically reduces the chance of it happening.

 

Not to mention that Merchants is EXTREMELY important, you never have less than 2 (Jade Merchants)

Relax would you. I've almost completed ports and I'm fine doing it at a bit slower pace.

Unlocking a 3rd and 4rd ship are always the main priority after the rudder, or so I have read.

My spot of good fortune. I haven't had oxheads unlocked for a particularly long time and I count myself very lucky.

So I'm 80% of my way through the bowl and I've gotten all the crew I need and now am amassing excess jade and cherrywood. I have all of the building upgrades sans totems and the workshop (which I won't be needing until I get all the way through pincers and start focusing on trade goods anyway).

 

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?

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

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

Sent out scroll 61/80 so hopefully it returns a success. Looking forward to those skill scrimshaws for when I'm rock hunting.

given the longer voyage times at the highest levels, having more of them isn't necessarily as helpful as just boosting your chances of getting the ones you want

 

nor is this increase guaranteed by random rewards

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.
