April 1st, Day 166. April Fools andHappy Easter.
2.7M to remove 1200raisins from productstorage in Sakai which is in boom. I used a NPC and traded 1800 wine for 1800Saori. Nice!
I completed enough EA discoveries/queststo complete the thesis "hide discovered quests" This is a critical long term adventure(college) skill needed to be active to pull many of the higher level quests.Discovered Thick Fog (Natural Phenomenon) on Japan SE coast. I also completed the two Taiwan memorialalbums. The reward for one of them is a +2 sundries trade outfit, which willcome in handing for my alt who has to grind it for one of the +3 furnitures. Ialso planned ahead and picked up some of the trade goods needed to complete theJapanese dish memorial album. The rewardfor that is a +1 firearms trade outfit, which I also need for my grind to makeanother of the +3 furnitures.
End of day passed 950 discoveries. ArtR9.
April 2nd. Day 167
I looked into which version of the +3document storage is easier to make and skill more useful to get. I need eitherR8 Sundries or R10 Perfume. There areabout 30 different perfumes in the game, 20 which are purchasable and only ONEsundry that you can buy (Western books). Yet the western books and sundriestrade is more useful to me because I can use it to purchase western books forgrinding Alchemy. Anyhow, I used up allof my PO 1's on my alt and got his Sundries trading up to R6+2 so I can makethose +3 document bookshelves now. I spent the day collecting saws andmaterials to make them. I found afterwards there is a new +2 sundries tradingitem called Traveler's comb which you can make in NA during the ThanksgivingFestival. It requires gold thread and Japanese Laquer, but that is not an issuefor me.
I discovered a Sand Tornado (naturalphenomenon) while doing a quest in the land area Sahara.
End of day passed 960 discoveries.
April 3rd, Day 168
Picked up quests going from Europe tothe Caribbean, then took a rail from Boston to San Fran and did more questsgoing to Hawaii. Sailed on to EA, picked up my +1 Firearms trade reward for completingthe Japanese foods memorial album. Idid quests and discoveries until one ofthe Japanese cities went into special status for alcohol trade. Edo went intofestival status and so I pulled 1050 raisins from my product storage and madewine. With a NPC, I traded 1800 wine for 1800 paper lanterns.
Sailed back to San Francisco, railed toBoston then sailed north to set up to collect berries and yellow ore.
In the evening I did some 20 runs inBordeaux to get some PO 3's to use to buy Firearms. I made R6 Firearms trade, +4with my Montsuki outfit, golden sceptre and turquoise earrings, then sailed toBremen to meet my alt with lumber and yellow ore to make zink and Brass for +3Trade Goods furniture.
At the end of the day I passed 970discoveries and made level 80 Trade.
April 4th, Day 169
A day for collecting. I have to do lotsof work irl, so I will set up to do collecting white ore/berries and logs(diamonds and lumber for my company storage) and berries for my quartersstorage aide to turn into more raisins for EA trade. Then later I will set upfor searching saws and hammers in Europe for more furniture.
April 5th, Day 170
I encountered a strange situation whileleading an adventure quest. I had 4 out of 5 fleet members with me when Icompleted the quest. The other fleet members did not have all of the skillsneeded and at least one had no skills in the fields needed, but completed thequest when I did the search. The lastfleet member had R3 search and 0 appraisal. The quest needed R7 Search and R9appraisal. Even though I was standing right there, when he tried to search, hecould not make the discovery. We gave him some +search and got him to R6 searchand he made the discovery even with R0 appraisal! I do not know what the exactrestrictions are, but I don't come across it too often as my alt's skill arenot too bad.
The quest was the first part to openAzuchi Castle. We completed the firsttwo quests and we discovered thetortoiseshell comb needed to unlock the quest for Azuchi mid on our first runof that dungeon.
End of day I made Adventure level 73!and 980 discoveries.
April 6, Day 171
I am in Europe helping a company matemake cannons and work casting skills. My mineral trade is R13+6 and wares tradeis R11+2. With 11 PO 2's I can fill a bazaar with 2000 iron ore, copper ore,lead ore, tin ore and coal.
The rest of the day was spent doing EAdiscoveries and a bit of trade in Korea.
I unlocked Fort San Domingo mid levelsand I finished all 8 of the memorial albums in EA. I received a Qiongyugao. An memorial albumitem "a gift from influentialfigures" for doing trade in EA.
At the end of the day I made my 1000th discovery.
April 7th, Day 172
More adventure quests, then I came backto Europe. I help a couple company mates, prepare for the NA Thanksgivingfestival. I made sure they have the fisher job, fishing skill, collectionskill, storage skill, unlocked Caribbean (fame) port permit, and field studiescollege skill. Since they have low levelcooking (R1), I will bring a few chickens and get them to endlessly processchickens and eggs. Not too much to report.
End of day 1010 discoveries, 225/289areas Charted.
April 8th, Day 173
The NA Thanksgiving festival is noton. The site I checked used to say April7th 20 O'clock start, now it says delayed until after ESF??? I do not thinkthere is an ESF on.
I will collect berries anyhow in NA, andfill my quarters in Istanbul so my aide can make more raisins for EA. Afterthat I will be searching for saws in Beruit outskirts to make +3 ship partsfurniture for my company.
April 9th, Day 174
I am pretty busy in real life for thenext few days, so I will not be doing too much. Mostly collecting/makingfurniture and selling stuff at bazaars. Today I made +5 Skill bookshelves. While I was in NA collecting, I went to BostonCollege and changed to a priest and took the college thesis for that job.
April 10th, Day 175
I took the Suez canal and a quest toIndia. I will work adventure quests from India/Jakarta/Hangzhou on my RLbreaks. At the end of the day I completed 10 theology quests and the BostonCollege thesis. The Boston College skill that I can get/use from that is to upmy Maximum Rank for Theology to R17. That is kind of a useless skill. Why notjust use a R15 as a priest and hold/wear +2, or +2 regular college skill? Maybethere is something I am missing. This skill would be much better if it gave youa +10% xp/skill or something for doing Theology quests.
Also my 30 day +30% xp and fame have ended soI will not be pushing the adventure charting. If I do want to chart an area, Imay have to do 2 at a time. (Chart an area, pop a +50% xp for 1h, report thearea, then chart another area and report it before the bonus runs out) The lastland area that I charted was worth over 4700 xp and the last sea zone I chartedwas worth over 7,000xp.
End of day, passed 1020 discoveries.
April 11th, Day 176
I changed to Cartographer job and tookthe Boston College thesis for it. Itwill be 10 geography maps to finish this one. I will do a world tour again butthis time going around Africa as I have some maps around South America andSouth Africa. While leaving Boston, there were 2 solo pirates sitting at thedocks. There was also a bounty hunter sitting just a little off the port andwhen I left, they pirates started tofollow. The BH said "pass safely myfriend." and sailed between the pirates and me.. the pirates turned aroundand went back to port... Nice! I wish I remembered the BH's name.
Note on pirates. Since I have madetribute for pirates (large) a while ago, I have used 4 tributes so far. I estimate that I get attacked once every 10days or so. I am sure it could be less if I tried to avoid them, but I don'twait at port if they are camped out. I just sail and let them hit me for halfmy cash on hand and one tribute. There are a pile of them sitting outside ofBoston right now and since part of Caribbean and North America West coast islawless waters, you cannot use tribute with them. Doesn't stop me. I put my excess money andgoods in the bank. I sail right out of Boston because I don't want to wastetime. I get hit by a pirate who steals 1M and a self made weapon from me.Nothing I have is worth stealing. I don't talk to the pirate, I just use a lifesaver and sail on. The real asset, and most valuable thing in this game is TIME, not moneyor items. If you are worried, put your good stuff in the bank, but NEVERlet pirates steal your time. (make you wait at port) Passed 1030 discoveries.
April 12, Day 177
Quiet day as I was out of the house formost of it. Did some quests between SanFrancisco and EA. Passed 1040 discoveries.
Friday April 13, Day 178
Back to EA for more quests. I will bringa load of goods thru North America when I go back, unless someone needs help inIndia or the Middle east.
This weekend there is a ESF going on inAncona. French/Dutch/Ottoman vs Venice/English. I will try to be on forSaturday's event. I have not studied theevent very well and do not know about how to help support a defender bybringing supplies and fortifying the defending city. All I do know is that it is a fairly easy wayto get a few court ranks. I do have my small battle boat ready for theevent. I will just have to make or buy a few cannons or carronades. I might make some Garuda (figureheads) forsale in my aide bazaar as well. I shouldbe able to defect soon, as my status with the Turks is at Amity and the 4nations Spain/Venice/English/French have been at distrust for a while now.
End of day, passed 1060 discoveries.
April 14th, Day 179
ESF day. I woke up late, and went toSeville to get some guns, None! I sailed to London, prepared to make some Rapid18's, but settled on some 16's for sale because I was short on time. The battleis at Ancona, near Venice. Sad thing is I did not have enough time to show upbefore the event and fleet so I was stuck alone and had a hard time trying toget a fleet, while everyone was sailing around.
... and as I learned, you cannotparticipate if you are solo. You MUST be in a fleet.
so much for today's esf. Next time, Iwill take the quest with my alt and fleet with him!.
I might also suggest that the ESF infoshow a meeting city for the attackers or defenders, where new players or soloplayers can meet up and join a fleet. The ESF info lists Syracuse, Naples orBengazi as allied cities, but that does not help much for solo players.
End of day, passed 1080 discoveries.230/289 areas charted.
April 15th, Day 180
Contribution day. One company has Poupelin trees, the othergrilled salted Pirarucu.
I came back to the Med to help a companymate do the Legend of the Labarynthos quest. Before I redid the quest I had the craftsman turn my original discoverycard into the Knossos palace display item. It has +5 effect duration. Myquarters are 60% completed to being R5 quarters. I will see how these displayitems affect me when it is done. Afterthe quest, I set up for collecting beehives and vegetable oil in Salonika. I stocked the company shared storage, thenmake a second trip to collect berries and make jam. I also continue to fill up my quarters withberries for my aide to turn into raisins.
I help out another company mate withcooking grinding. I get some mysterious spices and have him make all of thepoupelin. Starting from R8+5 (with mysterious spices) he made R10 cooking. Hegot the cook job so we could get him to make the Poupelin Trees as well. R10+1+5for the R16 cooking recipe. We filled the company storage with 999 poupelinTrees.
April 16th, Day 181.
Back to adventure quests. I did a longtour of the world in the Naturalist job and picked up quests from Seville goingto St.George, St. George going to Cape. Cape going to the Middle East etc.Nothing too exciting.
End of day passed 1090 discoveries.
April 17th, Day 182
Thanksgiving Festival is on in NA. Iwill do my normal collections and then fix my gear up to do land battles forthe next three days. All of my weapons are in poor shape. Even though I have notbeen using them, they take damage while sailing when the ship is in"unusual status, ie. poor sanitation, rats, fire, etc."
I have 2 spears, 2 flamberge and 2yatangans to switch thru during fighting, but only focus on my flamberge asthey are not 900+ forte. I turn on a 7 day Tech acquisition booster. IfI am in a fleet helping company mates I focus on traps and completing eachfight in around 20-25 seconds. If I am by myself, I focus on gainingQuick/Feint/Power points and levels. Ineed to raise these levels to get the higher weapon techs.
At the end of the day I have done 300+land fights and gained one new level 2 sword tech, Strong Slash. (requiresPower R6)
April 18th, Day 183
More land battles. Another 300 landbattles and another new tech Trick Sword, (Requires Feint R6)
April 19th, Day 184
More land battles. Another 300 landbattles. I made a quick trip back to Europe to fix my sword and halberd.Dropped off another load of berries to my quarters for the aide production andmade 4 Shipwrights quarters for a company mate in Istanbul at the dock master.From what I hear, there are no dock masters in the Caribbean yet.
I helped a lot of newer players gettheir maritime and adventures levels up by fleeting while doing lots of landbattles.
I will continue with the land battlesbut picked up snipe skill and a bow and club while I was in Europe. Both ofthese weapon categories have low feint requirements to get extra weapon techs,so after the festival ends, I will be working Power./Quick/Feint with my cluband bows. I will keep working these while my 7 day Tech Acquisition increasebooster is still on.
I make level 70 Maritime and find that Iam capped and have to do the unlock quest. Ittakes me 9 tries to solo a Wallenstein mission, and unlock Maritime 70. Atip in the Colosseum is that the NPC's never use traps/items that need anantidote, so I could have replaced it with a 3rd cure.
My method of success involved a lot ofburn traps, running around and curing myself.
At the end of the day I leveled in Both Adventure andMaritime.
April 20, Day185
Sailed to Hamburg and went to Frankfurt,met Alias and unlocked Maritime 76-80.
I am set for a while, so I plan to doland battles for Power/Quick/Feint for 3 days, then switch to Maritime. Today my goal is to get to Feint R2 for bowsand learn the two new bow techs that need Snipe R4 and Feint R3. If I get mySnipe to R4, I will buy some equipment and try to get the Musketeer job.
I reviewed my long term goals and thisis what I came up with. (in no particular order)
-acquire 2 bow, 2 staff,1,throw,1sword,1 spear (all level 2 weapon techs)
-Finish Investing 1B in the firstRailway, for NA effects.

Very long term
Make (close to) every discovery. We mustbe around 3000 now.
aaaahhh.. so many things to work on.
April 21, Day 186
I was doing land battle in theCaribbean, but we had a new company member join, so I sailed back to Europe tohelp get him set up. I suggested hefinish all his schools, but he wanted to work on cooking so I set up a bazaarfor him to cook from. He only got to cooking r8 as I had to go out.
Ended up not doing many land dungeonruns as I was helping others to start the Atlantis quest. My Sword Tech(Yellow) ended up at Feint10 and I picked up New Lifting slash.
April 22, Day 187
Back to dungeon runs. Today I am workingsword (Blue/Quick.) I saw one of theNPC's use the tech "New Sure Arrow" but 1) I was using a sword at thetime and 2) I could not kill the NPC quickly enough. I have to be quicker and swap weapons nexttime. After that I swapped to using thebow first I got my Snipe up to R4+4. I decided to sail to Marseilles and Ipicked up the Musketeer job for both myself and my alt. It took a lot oftime running around using burn traps to wear them down. It was very similar tothe unlock Maritime 70+ quest.
While grinding weapon finesse ranks, inthe Bordeaux dungeon, I came up with a method not described anywhere. I am kindof proud of myself for coming up with it. It is for those who really want to grind finesse ranks. The method described in all of the guidesrecommend partnering and working one colour when working finesse. The method described does not help much ifyou are solo and use a finesse booster. The finesse gain for a 5 chain solo is85 points. In Bordeaux, there are two NPC on each of the first two floors.Neither hit too hard so it is easy to run around and wait until you get 3 slotsfilled with the tech colour you are working on. Wait another 15-20 seconds andyou can unleash a 5 tech combo. Once the first npc is dead, switch weapons andstack 3 more of the other weapon/finesse and after anohter 15-20 seconds,unload another 5 chain combo on the second NPC with a different weapon. This way, when I was lucky I was able to gain85 points in Sword/Feint and 85 points in Bow/Power in a single battle.
Post edit.. I don't do this anymore,because I am way too lazy. I just stayon one colour and try to get chains 7-11 depending on if the NPC heals itselfor not.
I find grinding weapon finesse extraboring. It is the same 2 NPC's on thefirst level and the same 2 NPCs on the second level of Bordeaux. It is a bonusto get some PO2's and PO3's. At the endof the day my Ruin exploration rate is 273.
April 23, Day 188
Completed my first train investment.
Did my first 6 and 7 chain of techs withmy alt today on NA east cost. Soloing Ican chain 5 techs and get up to 85 finesse points with my +150% finesse booster.
With a 2alt-5main combo I have gotten 117 finesse points! The way described inthe guides is much better for the sole reason that you don't have to wait thefull time to get 4+ techs loaded in your queue before you start the combo. While soling I have to wait for about 70seconds .. while fleeted, I can start after 30 seconds or so.
At the end of the day I got my spearPower finesse up to R8.
April 24th, Day 189
Holy cow. I got my first 9 chain! and 185 Power Finesse points from OneFight! Nice! There is a bit of luck involved in getting a 9 chain off. The NPCsthat I am fighting have only 430 health, and usually die after a 6 chain. For a9 chain to work, the NPC has to use an elixir/assorted of health/medication,just before he is about to die, giving him enough health to take another 3techs. Picked up triple slash (Tech#64), New Fierce Strike(#65), New Sure Strike (#66), New Spear Throw (#67) and TrickAxe (#68) Now not to sound crazy. After I got my Sword Power finesse to R9, Iswitched to club/staff.. My flamberge is attack 39. My "staff of the dead"is only attack 16 and so the tech combos from the staff don't do as muchdamage. With some luck and timing I wasable to get an 11 chain, and 265finesse points from one battle!!! hochee mama. Tech battles are notso boring anymore. There is too muchinfo here, so I will just give my highest Finesse Ranks at the end (Sword) Power9; Quick 20, Feint 22. I will have tosearch out the specific NPC with the Rank 3 sword techs in the future.
At the end of the day, my techacquisition booster ran out, so I made my way to London to do some quests,leading to the unlocking of Atlantis. Discovered a waterspout (natural phenomenon near Las Palmas 15370:3674
April 25th, Day 190
Out most of the day again. Not much doneexcept a few Adventure quests from London and the three needed to unlockAtlantis. Discovered a Rainbow (naturalphenomenon) in Baltic Sea S-W Landing area while doing a quest there.
End of day 1110 discoveries.
April 26th, Day 191
Every day I try to review my goal andthen work backwards to figure out what I need to do to get to the goal withouthaving to backtrack because I am missing something. On OGP, I learned this lesson after gettingstuck so many times because I did not have a required language or some otheritem needed to complete a simple quest. With this in mind, I am thinking why doI want to go to Atlantis? It has recently opened up with lots of excitment, butfrom what I hear/remember, the prize for reaching Atlantis is nothing to writehome about. In my opinion, the only realreason to go is to get some crystal blessings (has different effects) and/or runthe Atlantis dungeon and possibly make the weapon Terra Amina. (100a 25-35d withgreat success, normally 80att, 20d +2 Guard+2 Sword Mastery) club/staff. It isthe only 100att club/staff I know of in the game, most others are attack 20 orless. If I do go, I will prep everything that is required to make several ofthem. Over the next 2 days or so you will see a lot of actions/activity done inpreparation to make this weapon, specifically to make lots of pure iron sheets,a component of the weapon that either takes lots of patience to make, or highlevel alchemy. Luckily I think I think Ican make them with a bit of effort and planning.
Step 1(making Pure Iron sheets), I picked up the Master Alchemist Job.With my R8 Alchemy +1 Academic tam +1 Emerald Tablet +1 Job, I now have the R11Alchemy required to make pure iron sheets.
April 27, Day 192.
A day for collecting trade goods of allsorts. There are many components and sub components and other goods that I willcollect. Top of the list are Rare books, Gold and Glassware. The sub components are Paper, Hemp, Copper, Sulfur,Crystal, White ore.
When I make/collect these goods, I willhave an excess of diamonds, so I will also collect lumber and gold/lumber andthe diamonds to make Fine Tribute for large ships.
Step 2, (making pure iron sheets) Icollected and processed approximately 3000 rare books, 2000 sulfur, 4000copper, 3000 gold, 1200 salt, 100 PO2's, to make 85 coloured potions.
I used up a lot of PO 2's getting all ofthose goods set up in my bazaars. I decide to go to Bordeaux dungeons and runthe top floor to 1) re-stock PO 2's, 2)to get more gold, white ore, crystal and3) to see if I can get the Sword 3 Power tech "Unterhau" from theRapscallion L47. During my 30 or so runs, I kill the Rapscallion within 5seconds of him using the tech but I do NOT pick up the tech. I check the guidesI have, the Japanese guide says you need Sword 5, Application Sword 5 and Power9. It is a really poor translation and I thought I had the requirements. TheHeroForEver tech guide says you need R19 Power. and R7 sword mastery which i doNOT have. I will put a skill in my skill bookshelf and get sword mastery.
April 28th, Day 193
step 3 (of making pure iron sheets),make and install a alchemy test kiln in my quarters, requires alchemy R10. Itis sad that I have a +3 consumable furniture in my quarters, but I have toreplace it with a +1 consumable test kiln. I need the kiln to get the recipesto make pure iron sheets in my quarters.
Finally the French are back to"normal" status with me. Thelast 3 countries should be normal within a day or two. After Atlantis, I willspend a day in the Red Sea doing quests and checking my investment status. Itis nice not having to wear any disguise equipment, but that will changeshortly.
I have 4 ornaments in my R5 quarters,but I am pretty sure that they have no effect yet. I need to learn how make anornament display room and activate them.
After collecting 1600 white ore, Isailed to Seville and Istanbul to put it up in my quarters storage. While inEurope, I picked up the Archeologistjob. I also just read up that to useornaments I must purchase a display room from the bank in my capital city(currently Istanbul.)
April 29th, Day 194
I made several display ornaments from mydiscovery cards. I have placed 8 display items in my display room. I am stillnot exactly sure how to activate them.
Passed 1120 discoveries. Opened 2/3 of thesolar barge. I will make the last part tomorrow after Atlantis moves to a newlocation at 10am tomorrow. I finishedcollecting about 4500 white ore and have made 450? Pure Iron sheets. I willmake some boots and pick up a helmet, I will be ready for Atlantis tomorrow,and ready to run the endless dungeon.
The two important things I learnedtoday.
1) is that the Exploration ship refitgives +10% xp for sea adventure. I am glad I picked that instead of the shipspeed up #2, I just didn't know why until now! That is why I wait until I am sailingbefore I report my land charting. It is worth an extra 10% xp or about andextra 350xp on land chart #120.
2) I finally understand Ornament display effects, and how toactivate them. Once you have a R5Quarters, you can buy an Ornament Display room at the bank for 10M. The 5ornaments on display in your quarters have zero effect. Only the ones placed in the 10 slots in the display room have thepotential to do something. Each item that you place in one of the 10display slots has either 1,2 or sometimes 3 effects. Each of the effects of theitems on display is added up and IFthe Sum of the effects for each ornament is +10 (such as cultural contributionincrease), then that effect has the potential to be activated, much like acollege skill can be activated. Asan example, I have "Ivory Statue of goddess" and "IncenseBurner" each has a +5 to land speed. The effect of having both of those ondisplay in my ornament room is +10, so I activated my Journal/Ornament displayeffects/Set Effects and made it one of the 5 skills active. Another neat thing I learned while sailingaround making ornaments is that you can make more interesting ornaments if youhave multiple discovery cards that can combine. The one example that I saw wastulips in a white vase on a table, which used a flower discovery, vasediscovery and a table discovery. Neat! My 10 ornaments give me enough points toactivate 1) Increased land speed, 2) Increased Cultural contribution, 3)Increased skill effect duration, 4) Reduced vigor consumption
April 30th, Day 195
There is Wuxu Porcelain available in SanFrancisco today. Lots of players doing the SF/Boston/Europe shuffle. Piratesare hanging outside of Boston as well.
I am collecting ore and lumber in NA.This is the last day for White ore. I will be over 5k white ore, and will buy abit more from the Seville shops if I need it. The recipe for pure iron sheets is 30 white ore, + 1 experiment pot (= 2 iron) +1 Ignis solution= 2 pure iron sheet. I have 180solutions so that works out to 5400 white ore needed.
Well things did not turn out as Iexpected. (Alchemist noob talking..) There are FIVE different possible outcomesto this experiment...not 1 outcome of 3 pure iron sheets as expected. It must be done at your quarters with a kilnor lab bench.
1) Great Failure: your furniture is damaged due to a poorly thoughtout experiment
2) Normal Failure: nothing changed(goods used up, produced nothing)
3)Success, 3 sheets of pure iron areproduced
4)Success, 2 suspicious lumps (that canbe opened) are produced
5)Great Success: 3 sheets of pure steelare produced.
Out of 180 solutions, i got roughly 20%great Fails, 30% fails, 50% split between success and great success. The totalgoods count is. 75 pure iron sheets, 48 Pure Steel sheets, 90 suspicious lumps.
When I went back to Istanbul, I swappedin a better ornament and activated headache reduction as my 5th skill. I have not seen the difference in effect yet,but the increased land speed is definitely visible as you are blurred whenrunning on land and look like the six million dollar man/roadrunner (if you areold enough to know who they were.)
End of day. Completed the solar bargefor Atlantis and passed 1130 discoveries.
May 1st, Day 196
I managed to scrounge up another 15 pureiron sheets so I will have 90 to make 3 terra Amina when I go to Atlantis.
I did see what I wanted to know aboutreduced headaches. I have not done anystatistics on the effects, but I did see one event during browsing a scholar'sbooks.
Due to the Ornament display Effect, youwere able to prevent straining your head while browsing books. I believe thisgives the toon ONE extra browse. This isout of 33-38 browsing events, so the effect is something like 3% better.
Step 4) of getting to make a TerraAmina: Equip up.
While running Bordeaux to get silver forthe run to Atlantis, I passed 300 Ruin Exploration Rate. I made a pair of boots and bought some cheap irongloves def12 and a Tong Tian Guan (hat) att12, def 17. With 73d boots and KingRichard's armor 70d, my overall raw stats are 92a, 199d. I got all the gear I need and so I took thesolar barge to Atlantis. Atlantis iscurrently just S of the Falkland Islands.
Step 5) Do dungeon runs until the secretpassage takes you to the recipe room.
First run in the dungeon I did 18 levelssolo before I ran out of Stamina. Then I ran it and did 12, 12,12 more levels. Of the 4 times I did a level 10,only once did I get the two boss statues, one with 3000 health and the otherwith 6000. They did not hit hard so It just took time to wear them down withpoison and fire. I was rewarded with 1 bar of Orichalcum, an highly soughtafter alchemy component. Of the 52levels, I did about 14 secret passages(lost count). approx10 Treasure rooms,3Death (10NPC) rooms and 1 puzzle room. No town man recipe. Sigh
