11-Dec-2012 - Player-Owned Ports

Recommended Posts

Scroll 74 came back a success, but tonight I only got 5 bones, 5 chi and 5 plate. Oh well... Came to realize that my bone income wouldn't support creating all the scrimshaws so I would stick to just vampyrism, elements and cruelty.

I just do vamp for the moneys since I don't really care about using scrims. They don't seem worth it for slayer and I'm not much of a pvmer.

Rudder -> Crew -> Combat Hull -> Moral Hull -> Deck -> Figurehead -> Buildings

 

Besides the combat deck none of the ship upgrades are as big of an upgrade for the steel that a crew member is. Once they hit level 5 they are as good as your level 8-9 bowl crew and then they get you a boost of much more than the 150 that the deck upgrades give you, and the 200 boost you get from the figurehead or moral deck. Plus you'll want them maxed as fast as possible in preparation for the next ports update that may be coming soon so that you can have high success rates on the new (if there are any) voyages. Rudder is first because it makes it much easier to get two sets of voyages in per day.

 

EDIT

 

What is the best captain setup? I know that ideal traits are multi talented along with 3 of the 1% boosts for whatever is their best trait, but right now I have a 1 moral, 2 combat, and 2 sf captains. Is there a better combo?

I think the best setup is to have captains for specific (extra profitable) missions, that is, you want one for each of the following:

1) Whaler plate

2) Standard plate/laquer and barmaid tips

3) Biologist/standard voyage bones (if you use superior scrims)

4) Standard chi

 

That means a seafaring captain with four +1% traits, a morale captain with four +1% traits, a captain for morale/seafaring and one for triples, and then I suppose a combat captain (if that isn't already good for 10k - I use my combat captain for that). The +4% captains are really only for single-stat missions, the other captains have +100 traits.

Not just you, I get one about every month (or at least every couple of weeks). Thankfully voyage rerolls are about one per week.

Lol my 90%+ scrolls keep failing but my 55% plate mission didn't (think it was so low cuz I'd just sent all of 1 type on that scroll -.- ). Dat RNG?? Have a s-ton of resources now. Seem to be getting 3 resource voyages a day, not sure what to do really.

No Ports update this month, real bummer. Doesn't really seem worth making armor to sell though.

I'm seriously hoping Vorago's armor is offensive and that the Ports update allows us to upgrade to T90 defensive.. Although, IMO, it should have always been T90. No idea why they chose T85 before except to try not to screw with Nex prices. I mean, perhaps it's not a great indicator considering, but making Ports armor does require level 90 in respective skills.

But it only requires level 85 to actually wear, hence why it is T85.

 

Would be fun to have rune plate T99 though... or Ganodermic at T98

Powering through to 90 smithing now that I have 180 (+6 hopefully) plate. By this time Sunday I should have full superior tetsu. Considering I started playing again in March just for Ports this is exciting for me.

Sadly if you started now, there were a fair amount if changes early on which gave some people an early lead, such as the rerolls thing that didn't get fixed for a while into ports.. :( (Let alone the people who legitimately bug abused)

even without the lead, the monetary rewards would have been greatly diminished compared to the beginning anyway

Is it worth waiting until I have FOTS to finish the basic story lines? I can do the Missionary, Biologist, and Whaler storylines but I'm weary if I should wait for the bonus..

Where are you at in their stories, are you on the last trio? FotS brings you an extra 21 of each resource or ~5 mil in cash. I was lucky and got to use FotS on all 3 of the ending storylines plus the trio story line because JaGeX loves me when it comes to ports apparently. I would personally say wait.

^slow down will you? :P

 

Nearly back up to 200 plates now, which is pretty much bang on what I expected it would take to entirely replace a superior set of armor from nothing (all 3 sets in 3 months, roughly, no earlier).
