How to easily find a shop with orders? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Is there an easy way to find shops that have orders waiting to be filled? Searching manually is quickly becoming tedious.

Using the "order a product" feature provides a list of shoppes with their estimated time of completion. Generally the longer it takes to deliver an item, the more orders it currently has. That's the easiest method I know of.

The "play X crafting puzzle" missions (missions, not the "free puzzles today" interface) on the noticeboard will generally bring you to a shoppe or stall with orders and pay available.

I'm assuming that you're playing on Cerulean, though, since that's pretty much the only ocean of the three servers of any note that I know of to have trouble finding work to sell labor to.

If so, I posted earlier on the Cerulean shoppe advertising also trying to find work and alot of people responded with active locations. :D http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=178937

Edit 1: added in some stuff i forgot to add in

Thanks. I'll try both of the methods you two mentioned and see which one works better for me. :)

The problem with the "play X crafting puzzle" mission is that it quite often takes you to a store with either lousy pay, or only basic labour needed.
If you decide that it is not worth it to puzzle at that store you actually have to start the puzzle, dismiss it before making any moves (no penalty this way) and then do the mission again, otherwise the mission will keep taking you back to the same shop for a period of time.

I have had the Mission tab send me to stalls/shops that only need Expert labor and I cannot provide that level for any puzzles. I try taking the mission again and it repeatedly sends me to the same stall/shop even though there are others on the same island that need skilled or basic labor. So it is somewhat hit and miss for me to use the Mission tab.
