Yeah I don't know what's up with the timers but I'm glad. Ports reset in 45 mins and I had two 3 hour missions left. Both done in about 2 mins.

Um ya I just sent that Chimera Straits voyage out like 10 minutes ago so after I read the last page I logged in to see if the timer was shorter than expected and got a little message saying my ship was back. Very strange. First time I've noticed this happen to me.

Just tested this, logging in and out, lobbying in and out. Seemed to only decrease the timer by 1 minute each time.

For summoning, that's not a bad situation as it's not exploitable. For PoP, I can see that being a bug exploit even though you likely save 30 seconds a hop given the delay between jumping worlds. Seems easy to fix by making it round up to the nearest minute instead of rounding down.

Logged out about 7 hours ago with 2:49 left on a voyage for 2 plates.

 

Logged in at the reset and it said 2:49 left, and the interface didn't mention any new adventurers in port (though they were present in the bar). Let the game run for a bit and when I checked the voyage again it said 2:45 left.

 

Relogged and the voyage completed :s

Are the trade goods unique to certain adventurers? Seen chi, ancient bones, and plates as rewards but not lacquer yet, which is what I need to collect.

I've seen lacquer and ancient bones with just 90 prayer.

I'm getting wayyyyyyyyyy too many gunpowder voyages. :< On the bright side, I got a base 3.5k Chimera straits voyage, which is fairly easy.

I am in the same boat (pun intended). I keep getting low end slate, but mostly gunpowder. At least I can use it later so it's not a complete waste of my time.

I've decided to go back to the arc to farm some bamboo, the slate missions I've been getting are stupid hard and I've bought all the gun powder upgrades.

Most of my missions for slate have been pretty easy, which I'm extremely grateful for. I think I'm going to save all my slate for the ship upgrade as my first thing. I've got 700 slate so far...out of 4000 needed >_>'

Does anyone have any idea how many story missions there are for each adventurer? Ten?

I recall hearing 5 story voyages per adventurer somewhere, I'm guessing that's just the single storyline without the team-up ones.

This is right. Plus additional combo ones if you have all 6 people.

I suspect you'll change your mind on this before you reach 4,000 slate. As you continue doing Hook missions and your progress bar advances, the difficulty increases. A third ship won't help you with dual 4.5k missions or single-stat 7.5k missions, and I've heard there are even worse.

anyone have any non-anecdotal proof of this?


DK drops (solo/LS): 66 hatchets, 14 archer rings, 13 berserker rings, 17 warrior rings, 12 seerculls, 13 mud staves, 7 seers rings

QBD drops: 1 kite, 2 visages, 4 dragonbone kits, 3 effigies, lots of crossbow parts

CR vs. CLS threads always turn into discussions about penis size.

It's not called a Compensation Longsword for nothing.

I've sent a 12k combat mission to have Aiel assassinated (poor bastard isn't even Pincers-tier difficulty).

I'm 12% through and almost past 1k slate and still haven't had many 3/4 anchor missions over 3k-4k missions. Even the combined ones are 3.5k and those aren't hard at all.

I've been seeing some 7k missions more frequently and I'm around 32% complete.

The difficulty hasn't scaled for me yet and it's not like these resources are locked into upgrading my ship. If the difficulty scales, I have the means to invest in the necessary ship upgrades. Don't know why that's a problem in the slightest. If you guys are right, then I will have plenty of time to prepare myself for the scaled difficulty well before I hit the 4k mark, which isn't going to hurt my overall effectiveness.
