Recommended Posts

While I get that prices now are the "gotta have it now" prices, I am wondering what the prices will be in the coming months. What is 2.7% boost to critical hit chance for 4 hours worth? What is the destructo XP for those skills worth? What are the extra drops worth?

 

The skill scrimshaws seem the easiest to figure out as all you have to do is say "I get Y more nests every 4 hours of wood cutting, that nets me X gp extra so I'll pay something close to that but not over". Any wagers on whether Jagex made the Y high enough to justify a multi-million gp starting price?

Got only the Assassin today, second day running, and no friggin scroll mission -.- -.- -.-. Stupid 20k slayer or 20 spices missions. Away with the human skull it is.

 

@NukeMarine: I think yes, but not because the rate is very high. Jagex has learned from the past that early on these items go for far higher than they are worth. I think they're right in trying to keep the guide price more or less accurate.

Word on the street is the Cherrywood Tree only gives an additional 1% boost to rewards.

Finally bought my first 10k chime captain, 700 morale, 500 rest.

 

Bought him and he gained Pacafist (reduced combat), Eager (Increased morale) and some other one which decreases morale...

 

If I send this fella on trait voyages, will the traits he gain 'overcome' the old ones?

No. It will add a new trait on until he reaches the max of 4 but he will never lose one.

My dream is to get a captain with 4x mutinous trait.

From the empty days of hope, deny the darkness
Follow my voice, we'll run far away from here

If only to hide, to escape this life
And live forever, forever in the sun

The scroll mate... Sorry I know everyone is dying to see pictures of it.

 

Edit: Just successfully completed a 600 jade special voyage. 1500/10000 jade down. Working on 3k bamboo and 3k slate to finish up my lodging upgrades.

No I haven't yet but the crew is pretty efficient at the moment. I figured I'd get four ships first.

Gah - I unlocked the sea with island 7 days ago - never had a sea witch for hire. Randomness is al what RS is based around but this is ridiculous.

What %s are you getting? Those 10.5k voyages are always a 100% but higher ones go in the 80%s

 

I need to get more overseers until I unlock judge of dice :/ , speed bonus are really worth it

So, I just unlocked the Bowl. Sent off my first Jade voyage, the next one to replace it was the Island unlock voyage. Managed to put 97% on it, with the help of 3 ration packs and 2 bottled seacrier. Now to wait 12 hours...

 

This giant waiting game is killing me.

Just be grateful you had the mission, been in scthye for a week, about 60% done and not received the mission to unlock the Seawitch... That is rediculous, at least you have a chance of unlocking the Sea Witch, but if i can't get the mission then i can't get a chance of a sea witch... All that cherry wood wasted on cartographers...

I like to think of the Dark Bow like a Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) - you get one shot and then you're screwed.

Nearly ready for the Bowl. I'm at 93% in the Scythe and I currently have 6k cherrywood in stock. I'm hoping I'll get to 8k before reaching the Bowl, to set aside for the extra ship.

 

So, what's a good Bowl strategy? Do you guys reroll "old source" (gunpowder, bamboo, slate) missions? I have enough of all for all the updates, so I'm wondering if it's any use to keep doing those. Especially since I won't be able to do all the voyages in a day anymore.

 

Should I save for the fourth ship first, or get new crew? What are the new guys' levels? I've replaced all my crew by scythe guys, who are all between level 5 and 8, so I'm not sure if they're that needed at the start of the Bowl.

 

I'm also going to have to invest into attracting scroll missions. I gave the story missions priority, but I finished those available to me and haven't seen a scroll mission since either :sad:. Still, an easy 700+ cherrywood a day (sometimes x2) has been quite nice as well.

As soon as i wrote this and sent off all my voyages for my ships i get the Sea Witch island mission.... Will do that later...

I believe crew and then ship is the most suitable (Especially if you have all the upgrades already and dont really need going back), seeing you need 10k to get the 4th ship and it would take like 5-6(¿?) days to obtain all that jade (120-180 each regular voyage..maybe a 600 one special?), whereas getting better crew will help increase the % of success by a nice number using only 3.6k jade (counting 6 basic crewman for each stat at 200 jade each).

Base stat crew is 1k, level 3 jade crew has the same stats as lvl 7 scythe crew which is quite a bit of difference.

I'm in need of some advice. I've got the very basic port upgrades and only two ships. My progress and other images thus far:

45% through the Scythe region, also. Is this good/bad? How should I proceed? I also have all ship upgrades that you can obtain before the Bowl region, apart from the rams/figureheads you can purchase with Cherrywood.

I think you didn't really read/understand my post... What use is unlocking the island and then not getting any chance to recruit the unit? I literally had 7*15 + 5*5 (rerolls) = 130 chances to get one and didn't get any. I would rather have the mission be rare and then plenty of opportunity to recruit the unit once you unlock the island...
