Yeah, with a few exceptions where i go into more details for beginners, this guide is designed for more experienced puzzlers looking to still improve.

And, yes the forage bug is still around. Its been so long now we may have to start calling it a "feature".

I'm still adding to this guide btw, just not as often as I've been busier.

aw post is too old to edit now, but i finally made a good bilge video.

At around 0:45 i got confused and wasted 6-7 clicks, then at around 3:40 i wasn't sure i had enough stars left to finish my last vegas, so i just set off a bingo right above my planned combo. Besides those 2 small mistakes its pretty high quality bilging.

Couple things to add:

-Shipwrightery isn't rated until after you place your 5th pattern
-Weaving isn't rated until after your 4th move

i posted the SW one earlier, but didn't know about weaving. So even if you break pieces with your moves you can safely leave after your 3rd play?

Might I suggest transferring it over to the wiki? You can use fancy formatting there, and it never gets too old to edit.

15 seconds for duty puzzles and foraging. Distilling seems to be shorter, but is at least a few seconds(maybe 5). No time limit but no moves allowed for alch and BS.

Distilling is based on the # of moves. Um I always forget if it's 5 or 10. But it doesn't really matter since you should know right away if you want to board hop or not.

This may be too detailed for your guide, but there is a complete guide to sword placement in swordfighting (Hint: It's not random!) on the yppedia:

I would assume that distilling could be both the amount of moves and/or when the first row gets burned. Isn't that around 5 seconds?

Scores don't register until you place the 4th piece of your opening combo, so you can leave before that if you decide to take a stupid risk early and it doesn't pay off.


This should be corrected - the fifth pattern makes the game rated, not the fourth.

This should have the puzzle with it, I'm assuming weaving though.

No, I meant Shipwrightery. My bad. Weaving does count after the fourth move, though.

An awesome guide I'm sure this will help me alot in the future. I was just wondering if maybe Patching/Hearts/Spades could be added in the future? This would make the guide even better! Thanks alot for all the work you put into this.
