I'm finding the new scrip system very confusing. First, we are only given 10,000 scrip to start, but many of the items in the Black Market cost more than that. So - how do we get more scrip? Buy the new Gauntlet for Crowns. I could only do two rounds last night and got 15 scrip. This means I would have to repeat this 14 times just to be able to buy a stack of towels.
Fight ships in the skyways? I fought 15 ships in Aquila and received only gold and one piece of ship equipment. NO scrip.
Can we buy Scrip for gold? Are we going to get a Banker in-game to exchange our funds?
I also found the drop rate of scrip from the ships sunk very low I sunk only 4 but got no scrip. I also tried the gauntlet and found that 2 comps died before I finished the first fight. Not a gauntlet I want to run. That seems to be exchanging down time for scrip or gold if you pay Mitch. How about I just promise not to play for the 7 hours it'll take my companions to heal can I exchange that for scrip?
Not only that, but the enemies in the gauntlet are ridiculously strong. I thought I picked a pretty good team of companions, but the swashbuckler mouse could solo all of them since she hits for one thousand on an epic critical which she was getting every turn. Not to mention the privateer spamming mass heal at the end of every turn and the musketeer doing the same with bombs. I only tried out the dungeon because after fighting like 20 ships and the eagle boss ship in Aquila, without boarding, and I didn't get any scrips. To be honest, the price of the items in the black market don't really make sense anyway. You said doing the initial quest gives 125 in the live realm, but the prices of housing items are hundreds to thousands, and the gear; which is looks really cool but is stat less, costs around 5-6k for the just the armor.
I personally like the idea of Scrips and the Black Market, it's new and gives us the ability to purchase special new in-game items, we earn all that Scrip and buy special items to show accomplishment, it wouldn't be much of an accomplishment if anyone could get enough Scrips in one day to get the most expensive item. It's rather similar to Wizard101's PVP with Tickets.
I do not think there should be a Gold to Scrip currency exchanger because Scrips are an optional form of currency just like Crowns or Gold, you don't always need them and The Black Market holds items with battle standards, so I really think it's worth the farm.
So far I've gotten Scrips from the ships I've sunk but I guess that's only me but I have tried more places than just Aquila
Why do you only get 100 scrip for clearing the new dungeon, and why cant we say scrip
Why do you only get 100 scrip for clearing the new dungeon?
The amount you get for clearing the dungeon is both random, and tied to the challenge level (which is set by the highest level player). You get more scrip for beating more rounds and higher level enemies.
And why cant we say scrip?
We'll get that added to the chat filter ASAP! Thanks!
