That whole 'get 3 ox on crew screen' thing from a few pages back. I've been doing my crew re-rolls daily for like 3 months to try and hit that...I have 2 that do not match on 'flavour text' and the 3rd slot has yet to see an oxhead.

 

Dang my luck blows.

I got this a few days after Meamzed won the challenge for identical flavour text, and decided it wasn't worth posting. Now that it's being brought up again, I figured why not.

Wow, not sure how you managed that, almost 100% positive the cap was set to 2 a while back. I have noticed though that when I get standard voyage rerolls I only get them ~35% of the time, even with 0 queued up.

Caps are weird, I somehow got 2 adventurer rerolls in a row a while back. I didn't get a chance to use my first, and lo and behold I only had one to use, so I wasted it. So apparently my personal adventurer reroll cap is 1.

0 adventurer is not a glitch, there is no guarantee they show up with highest bar this is unlikely but not impossible.

First time I have never rolled one since I start so I assumed a glitch.

the tree shaking scrimshaw actually drops enough nests to the point where you can exceed its value if you get lucky

But unfortunately non of the skill related scrimshaws are actually worth anything close to the combat ones (AFAIK, unless the Tree splitting and Rock Smashing ones work better than I think they do).

I was considering making skilling ones for myself or selling combat ones, which one is generally the best to sell?

Just my option, but if you still got skills to train I'd make them myself to use. At least that's what I do with rock crushing. But only because I don't have a steady income for 300k scrimshaws. If you do have a good income then just buy yours and sell combat scrimshaws.

Or, you could simply make the combat ones and buy the skilling ones, you usually can get it for 1 for 2 roughly.

 

You don't even need a steady income.

 

Last I have heard, Scrimshaw of Magic was a big seller, not sure about now. RSoF has a thread on the latest pop prices though.

Aren't self-made superiors better than their tradeable counterparts, though?

For the skilling ones, I have no idea by how much, or if there is even any improvement of untradeables over tradeables. If it is indeed better, I expect no better than "marginally" better

Superior versions give bonuses 33% larger than the tradeable versions (e.g. superior tree shaking has a 400% boost to nests, tradeable tree shaking is a 300% boost).

Let's assume I train WC for 12 hours. In that time, I would have used 3 superiors, or 4 normals.

 

Also assume that on average, a cost of a superior is 2x normals (combat ones are worth on average roughly twice as much as skilling ones)

 

So the cost becomes 30 ancient bones vs 20 ancients bones (the former making 3 superiors, the latter making 2 tradeables, and use the money to buy 4 tradeable tree shaking).

 

The question then becomes, does 12 hours of woodcutting without any scrimshaw yield enough nests that on average would cover the cost of 10 ancient bones? (The difference between sup and normal is 100% nests per hour).

I just noticed that, statistically, the hardest voyage in the game still gets only 4 out of 5 anchors on the difficulty scale. That's slightly retarded.

  • Like 3

I believe the anchors are scaled to your crew quality, hence why voyages only scale up to 4 when you are, or close to maxed crew

89% on that 12k triple includes a merchant, right?

Good luck, may the RNG God's be kind.

 

I accidentally fired a seafaring crew instead of my 4th merch when I got my last oxhead 3 days ago. Now I can't roll a sf crew again for the life of me and I don't need 4 merchants because I only send out trade goods voyages and I'm lucky to get 3 in a day let alone 4.

I keep 4 merchants, I fired a combat crew instead.

 

Sometimes I get lucky to send out 4 Trade good voyages, so I consider it a much better trade off to keep a 4th merchant than to keep a 5th Tiger.
