What am I doing right? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I've recently started running basic pillages a bunch recently. And I've been winning kraken's blood regularly-- about one per 10-12 battles, which is far more often than I've seen any other time, with any other navigator.

Well, no, I've seen it at about that rate when I'm with an elite sloop run. But I'm sailing with a fanchuan, taking anyone who applies. Most of my runs end up with a couple skilled people, and a bunch mid-low-to-greenie jobbers. I would say that it was a run of good luck, except that my wife just got her chalice of blood, essentially all earned this last month with me.

And I've been winning it from yellowish-green ships, including times when I'm only partially full. Most recently, from a green influence ring ship, with me plus seven jobbers with maybe a couple who had two master+ stats among them all, on the third fight of the trip. I was barely getting a move per turn from my sailors. I expected to be lucky if we got more than 250 PoE from the pre-division split, yet... blood.

So... what am I doing right? What influences how often you win blood?

Hah. I went out solo on a fanchuan the other day just lazing around so I could get my seal o' piracy. Won one battle, then lost two, only to discover when I got back in port that I'd managed to get some KB at some point.

So maybe what you're doing right is the fanchuan? =P

Possibly some hidden promotion (x2 chance to get KB or w/e) tied in with the Seal this month?

I've got no clue if this is a great observation, or a conspiracy theory in the making.

Ah, I've got it! It happens when you kill the guy with the hat last!

I should probably add to my statement that it would only effect the Fanchaun and the Junk due to those being the "ship of the month".

Who knows. Best way to see is if you dramatically stop getting them when Feb rolls around.
