Order Decay Rate Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I just wanted to know the rate of decay of an item that is not delivered. I just ordered a ship, and I can earn the money enough to deliver it, but I just wanted to know my time constraints to earn the dubloons.

It's 40 days, starting when the item is completed and ready for pickup. :)

::Edited to Add::
However, I believe that the order will remain available for delivery even after that point, unless the owner or manager of the stall/shop chooses to take delivery of it themselves. Even so, I wouldn't risk it, personally.

At 40 days, the item becomes "Abandoned" and the above post is correct.

Decay is another thing altogether. Decay refers to an item's condition progressing from new, to good, to old and then dusting. Items that are not yet delivered do not decay at all. They will be brand new on the day you deliver them and then proceed to decay at the normal rate.
