I think that scrip should either be easier to get (higher drop rate and higher amount dropped) or there should be another way of getting scrip. Maybe a companion order that takes 12 hours and gives you half of five times the companions level in scrip. Another way could be a reward for ranked PvP matches (if they are soon to be added). My favorite idea would be in that cave on skull island docks could be a boss that only drops scrip and black market items.
All I'm saying is that for the extremely high price of most of the black market items compared to the drop rate of scrip, it is next to impossible to get a master smuggler's garb before december of 2024

Well of course the scrip is hard to come by in game. The stuff you can buy is amazing! A banner that grants relentless? Shoes that grant elusive? A MOUSTACHE THAT YOU CAN DYE RED?!!!

All kidding aside, I think Scrip is fine the way it is. If they add a non-crown boss that gives Scrip, I wouldn't complain, however something that drops Black Market items takes the fun out of it. Lots of work, big reward that feels deserved.

Yes, we all want more scrip and we want it to be easy and nearly effortless - but then where would the fun of going out and hunting ships or running through that pit-of-destruction called the Smuggler's Arena be?
And look at the fantastic items that scrip can get - there's a certain wow! factor in seeing a pirate in the full Master Smuggler's outfit; you know that the player has put a lot of effort into getting that outfit. BTW, it's not 'impossible' to get the smuggler's gear, I have the boots and I'm earning my way toward the jacket.

Actually got the boots by massive ship farming, and only one run in the arena: I got 540 scrip for completing ( with a lot of help from friends ).

I just wish our characters were friends then i would port to you and we do the smuggler's arena. none of my friends have the arena and I can't get crowns until X-mas. so I'm out of luck with the arena.

Scrips are very hard to find,not only they are very fragile and don't last long. They are hard to make and the producers are often annoyamous. This makes scrips origin a mystery both in location and how it's made,but it's value is very high. It's worth fighting for and difficult to earn in large amount.

Tip-The larger the group, the more scrips are earned witch is good.Try for framing them, with friends.Maybe ask some boss ships to battle them for larger amount.or go to the smuggler's arena with friends. Have fun earning scrips.

I will be on the Paths of Penance in front of Moo's Tower every day @ 7 pm central time on realm Morgan LeFitte. I will be glad to friend you as some of my friends are a little shy about entering the Arena.
Warning: It is very tough on companions, so if you need them for questing, I suggest you wait until you have enough gold for a few revives from Mitch.
It also takes nearly as much time to do a full Arena run as Moo's Tower, which is another reason why I have trouble finding those willing to do it.

The arena gives varying amounts; in the same run, one of my pirates made well over 500 while another just barely hit 500. I don't think any of the four pirates got the same amount of scrip that run, but Indigo could probably tell you for sure.
