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

 

Yes it does.

 

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.

 

FML

 

Woop, got it done, Could make a second set of full superior now, but I think I'll probably just wait, if I get to close to 250 I'll make a tradable helm.

 

Now to get 90 rcing before I hit 250 chi, sitting at 224 right now >.<

In the best way possible too, they stack multiplicatively, although it matters little for trade goods

 

EDIT:

 

Hit 200k Steel today, 239 plates, 180 Chi and 169 Lacquers at the moment, might have to spend some plate soon.

I think ports is overlooked as a way to gain experience. If you spend 3 mins sending out a voyage for 15k xp that's 300k/hour. I've never done an xp mission so i don't know if the reward is a chosen skill or if its specific to the adventurer.

I always choose exp over the resources unless I have 99 in said skill....

Squakus is right. At least for me (max cape) XP missions are 35k per adventurer (doubles = 70k)

Generally speaking, what should my crew setup look like in the pincers? My crew at the moment is a bit of a mess, and it could be improved a bit.

One seafaring, moral, combat captain, then the other 2 I made hybrids, a moral based captain with seafaring traits and a seafaring captain with combat traits.

Once you have all the Scrolls you'll ever need, you can consider firing one of your crew for a 4th merchant. I'd recommend firing either a Tiger or a Oxhead, i chose tiger.

I don't get why you'd fire a tiger for a 4th merchant, vary rarely do I use all 4 boats on a given day, and if anything I'd give up a JoD I don't do enough multi stat missions to use them all the time.

If you also send boats on steel, the 4th merchant is always useful. Chimes are good for recruiting better crew/captains (got two tigers with slayer now :)).

 

Today I got missions for 2x5 plate, 2x5 chi, bones and laquer. So yeah... merchant rocks.

So 4th and 5th captains are really up for grabs as for which types they are? I don't get anymore morale missions then I do sf missions.... If only I could get 6 captains lol.
