Completing a scroll this early on is pretty pointless, but I still think it's kinda cool.

Nice going, I'm 3/4 on vampirism scrimshaw now :)

Does anyone know if/how you can check progress on the different storylines for special visitors? There is absolutely no way in a very hot place I'll be able to remember how many of each I've done. :oops:

since golems already cover the morale/combat angle, it's not a bad thing to have a different type

Did anyone else only get one special voyage with today's reset? Pretty retarded considering I'm 90 in all of the skills except rc.

I never get more than 2 different visitors, and most of the times its 3 voyages, 1 mixed with both of them and one sepparate.

 

Im mad!

 

I also got only 1 special voyage today - whaler - while I have 90 in all skills required....

Is there even a good reason to waste a special voyage on story progression rather than resource/scroll? Does it give you any benefits?

Beat a whole storyline and you get a ton of trade goods and XP at the end.

 

How much exactly is "a ton"? Does anyone have any idea?

I'm just reflecting whatever was written on the official wiki :P A wild guess would probably be in the region of 10-20

 

Worth noting there is more than 1 pay out per adventurer from what Jagex have said it would seem the individual stories have a pay off AND the pair stories have a bigger pay off AND after you've completed 3 specific solo stories (they have not told us which 3 group) you unlock triple missions for even bigger pay off, (Eg there is 2 sets of triple missions to be had. At this point in time I'm going to hedge my bets on Missionary, Occultist and Convict being a triple seeing as Missionary and Occultist work together and Convict found his new home on the same island as missionary is setting up his church. Which would mean Whaler, Botanist and Assassin work together also.)

Is anybody else getting a lot of "trait" missions? I had an "eager" and an "eagle-eyed" one yesterday and another "eager" one today. All my captains already have that trait (one captain even has two 'eagers', yes, I checked, it's possible - morale stacks in that case), so that's basically a useless voyage I can't do and can't replace by a better one :sad:.

A captain can have up to 4 traits

 

I have 74% of the way onto the new region, I'll be at about 94-96% once I complete all of voyages today, so tomorrow when I get 100% can I get voyages from the new region or will I have to wait until Wednesday for those voyages?

Yeah I did an eagle eye one, started my rerolls and got an eager mission. I might just stack it with my eagle eye captain.

 

My rerolls have been very easy so I'm running very close to not hitting the hook till tonight.

Contrary to the crew I haven't observed that the captains '' on offer " are better than in the previous region...?

 

Also I presume that with the new region we will get more voyages to do per day? What use is there otherwise to get more ships because I can easily handle the current amount of voyages... I could do with more like the rest of you also...!

Captains are some what randomised so it is luck of the draw. I had 3 in a row that beat my arc captains in most stats and then past 2 have been sucky.

 

As for number of voyages no it won't go up; what will go up is the time missions take.

Average arc mission is 30mins (ignoring any speed boons)

Average Skull is 1 hour

By this trajectory Hook missions are going to be 1.5hours or 2 hours region

Region 4 would be 2 or 4hour region

Region 5 2.5 or 8 hour region

etc.

 

And that's even assuming it'll keep a nice neat rise and not be insane and jump to like 20 hours by the end.

The idea is in the late game you pick and choose which missions to send.

It's ~20 minutes, ~80 minutes, ~140 minutes etc. for basic voyages, and unique voyages (like unlocking Cyclopses, Sirens, Chimeras) take one hour/tier longer. So expect about 320 minutes for the final zone, and 380 minutes for uniques there.

Literally going to hit hook with my last voyage. I need like 285 miles... I may not even hit it which would be sad.

I thought the BTS said some voyages would take days

 

I remember seeing/reading this too.

 

I'm at 85% in the skull region with 4 voyages left. Don't think I'll make it to the next region either today :sad:.

I like how I have zero special missions for today. I didn't even know that was possible. I was under the impression that you always got an adventurer in your port every day. Whatever, not like I would be able to do the missions anyway. Still, I'd rather not see this happen often.

For the past few days I showed 5 for me. That's not good though - if the scroll one doesnt appear in first 3 I'm most likely to toss my chances at it by doing a special that does show.

So far I have done zero scroll voyages.

35 pages in what... 6 days? not bad tif.

 

I'm REALLY enjoying this update, my favorite update all year, and the one which has kept and held my interest for a long time. YES 6 DAYS IS A LONG TIME, LOOK A BUTTERFLY. I can't wait to unlock the hook, but i've only just got on top of the blasted hook succeeding all missions, and have a good crew... back to boat when i unlock the hook (ha)
