    Lava Coaster Merchant

    I was unable to complete the merchant that is located in the regular cove and it will cost 299 rubies to complete but I'm not sure it or the other world merchants are worth that much. Which ones pay out rubies and how many?
    Thanks

    I have the Montezuman Jeweler. It pays two or three rubies. Another member of the 501st has four of the merchants - he reported a few days ago payouts ranging from 2 to 6 rubies. I didn't finish any of the others - the Foundry, the Lava Coaster, or the Trader. If I ever save up enough rubies, I will finish them with rubies, just to have them.

    I have all 4 merchants and collect an average of 7 rubies a day total. Each merchant seems to pay out 1-2 rubies. Others report collecting more (10-12 reds) ... But mine seem to be stuck at 7. Figures. Lol

    Snowellenpeggy, when fully upgraded these merchants give 2 rubies per day each. Sometimes more. Occasionally I get 6 rubies from one of them. Guaranteed 2. Only 1 ruby per day when not upgraded. It is definitely worth saving up to get them as they repay themselves in 150 days to the 200 days of a ruby deco.

    Just to confirm that 6 rubies do happen at times

    This was my Christmas present from the Lava Coaster, but it has happened at other times too. Just not often.

    Each merchant give you 2 to 3 rubies a day. So with the four you should have 8 to 12.

    That's not 100% correct.

    Since I've had my Montezuman Merchants, they payout (randomly) either 2, 3, 4, 6, or 7 rubies EACH per day. I have never seen one payout 5 rubies, nor have I seen one payout more than 7.

    So the minimum payout for 4 Merchants would be 8 rubies per day and, theoretically, the maximum payout could be 24 rubies (if each pays out 7 on that day). Generally, you are correct, 4 Merchants more so than not will payout between 8-12 rubies per day.

    Here's proof that the Lava Coaster pays out 7 rubies:

    No magic, brother.

    It's all in how you tap them. PG has programmed in a certain sequence. If you know the sequence - boom - 7 rubies.
