Player Owned Ports Question

Once you finish the individual storylines you get 50 or so trade goods in a pre-determined good. Then you access dual/triple story missions which again have high trade goods rewards. The rewards areone offs.

 

So does that mean they are a better option than the resources I could get from them? I'm working on Tetsu atm.

I'd also recommend not doing the story missions until the very last zone due to:

 

1. Story missions do not get harder if you leave them until next zone (IE a 2000 Morale story will still be a 2000 morale story until you complete that particular story, whether you are in zone 4 or zone 6), which allows you to complete them with greater chance of success.

 

2. Story Voyages do not contribute to Mileage (and therefore zone progress), so doing them in Zone 6 will negate that downside

 

But, that's assuming if:

 

1. If you do not need any of the other special voyages available, then do the Story.

 

2.This does not apply to the first story (you need it to unlock the special voyages).

 

Lastly, scroll voyages follow the rule of the earlier the better. Try not to miss any of the early scroll missions because it'll gradually become a large pain to get later on.

I would argue that doing scrolls early on isn't as important as once you get to pincers and have near maxed pincers crew you can send them out at 90+% chances of success vs. 60-70% at best in the lower regions. Plus you can get telescopes and with 2 or 3 of them its pretty much a scroll voyage 5 days out of 7.

 

It's not like you'll need the scrolls until pincers anyways as you shouldn't have a huge number of trade goods until you get near maxed crew.

Actually my experience had been vastly different from yours Tieszen, but mostly thats due to work schedule that I could not send out ships more than twice on weekdays, so towards the end of a region I was getting 80% or so success chance on Scrolls.

 

Also, my view is that once you reach pincers, you should be concentrating on Trade goods since that's where most of your trade goods come from, and Scrolls directly conflicts with that goal. And it's not as if you have anything more important to send out in lower regions that would actually benefit you in the long run.

 

Besides, scrolls, failed or not, also count towards progress into next zone, so I'd get them earlier rather than later, when it becomes a more painful choice of trade goods vs scrolls in pincers.

 

Slayer: If you can get 60% on scrolls, that's enough. It's my general benchmark for sending out on voyages.
