Chart boxes Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Chart boxes are those funky things in the rogue mark shoppe. They cost one rogue mark each and contain a random chart, which can be a regular map, SMH map, or expedition. (TH, forage, IO, viking, or compass).

...And it looks like that's all we know about it. Would anyone happen to have opened any of these and have an estimate on the rarity of the specific rewards? (And if so, would that be worth adding to the YPPedia / keeping a log of from several people to eventually do so?)

I quickly spoke to someone in-game who said the SMH maps are 1/16 (which would be 1/4 to roll "SMH map" and then there are four to pick from), but I'd have no idea how accurate that is.

Edit: Testing says it clearly is not that, but 1/16 for "any SMH map at all" still seems possible.

could either of you specify the distribution of the expeditions among the ocean? ie: are they concentrated around where ye purchased the boxes or just random?
