Ship Corpse Tiles "cut-off" TH point Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I've noticed that alot of times when a navigator will disconnect from hauling a SMH/Flotilla/Blockade ship corpse spot (note, during hauling, not after hauling was complete), that the ship corpses being hauled will sometimes just disappear as if they were completely hauled.

This has happened many times that I don't believe it's coincidence that all the treasure from that haul was coincidentally mined out at that exact moment.

This leads me the believe that there is some lower "cut-off" point where, if only certain amount of poe is left in the ship wreck, it will just disappear and take that remaining poe with it once the ship disconnects.

Can anyone confirm my suspicion? :3 The idea makes sense, since nobody would want to arrive at and then haul a 1 poe ship corpse.

And a smaller question to; is there a typical amount of time that people can predict when to disconnect from a TH spot in this manner, instead of waiting for the corpse to dry up through hauling?

I think it's actually the reverse, the wreck will stay up until the end of the turn in which it reaches 0, even if there was only 1 poe left at the start of the turn, and you're basically hauling nothing for that turn.

Navs are probably just really good at knowing how many turns of haul a wreck will give, through experience. The number of turns depends on ship/monster type, what ship you are on and how many people are hauling, as well as how long the wreck has been decaying for.

Oh man. :o

I'll have to ask some experienced navigators how they predict that kind of stuff. @_@

They're predicting it, and as Bob said, knowing the number of turns comes from practice. I used to know the trike/gorg/arch turn times when I navved and MAAd runs, it doesn't really take much effort if you're doing it often.
