    Cool The Emerald Queen

    Thought we could use this thread to record details of the upgrade costs and returns of the new ship.

    The ship uses emeralds to upgrade

    Upgrade emerald cost....................24 hour journey cost........Average reward from voyage


    Upgrade to tier 1 = 15.............................72,604,344......... ................15 emeralds

    Upgrade to tier 2 = 15............................105,034,208......... ...............18 emeralds

    Upgrade to tier 3 = 20............................155,696,756......... ...............20 emeralds

    Upgrade to tier 4 = 25............................219,148,917......... ...............25 emeralds

    Upgrade to tier 5 = 30............................316,105,504......... ...............36 emeralds

    Upgrade to tier 6 = 45............................455,563,936......... ...............53 emeralds

    Upgrade to tier 7 = 60............................750,000,000......... ...............70 emeralds

    Upgrade to tier 8 = 85............................943,928,960......... ...............110 emeralds

    Upgrade to tier 9 = 115........................1,357,215,872.......... ..............180 emeralds

    Upgrade to tier 10 = 165.......................1,950,105,472........... ............245 emeralds

    3, 3, 5, 6, 9, 12, 17, 23, 33

    At max level, this high strength ship will kill all of your standard pirates with 1 good shot up to and including Ilian. The Red Hammer, The Immortals and Dread Pirate Randall all manage to fight back though.

    Here is the link for the pirate list :- https://forums.pocketgems.com/showth...gth-and-Reward


    just editing this first post so its easy to see all the costs. please post any missing info and i will update it. TY

    MAJOR OOPS!!!!!!! Can u all guess what I just did? That's right, finish voyage for 40 rubies. Am getting really pi--ed off with this now.

    Anyway. Teir 3 returned 20 emeralds like I thought it would.
    5 taps @ 5 emeralds a tap for teir 4.
    Sent out for 24 hours @ a cost of about 225 million coins.

    Thanks for starting this thread. I just purchased the EQ for 50 million. She'll be done building in 16 hours.

    Lvl 44 here and I've got and built it.

    For Tier 1 the cost are for me as follows-
    5 Hrs-15,125,04
    9 Hrs-27,226,628
    24 Hrs-72,604,344

    The question I have is whether it is wise to upgrade her now w/ the limited number of emeralds I have? Or, should I wait and see if in the future those emeralds will come in handy for something else?

    What I need now is the ablity to turn all of my pearls into sapphires.

    that would depend on your daily revenue, what you can afford to pay out on voyages and what is the most important for you now. Emeralds will be needed to upgrade your merchants as you must know so if you can afford to hold that back then upgrade your boat but remember that it costs over 200 million on tier 3 to send out for a long voyage, it is all a matter of balance. I will upgrade mine as soon as i get enough emeralds to do so and hold back on my merchants for now, i have already upgraded 3 emerald merchants and on my 4th one. I got many of my coin sapphire merchants upgraded so will focus to carry on doing that to get my coins and use my emeralds for now for this new boat alone.

    Well it took out ilian in two shots cost 8.4m to repair and a ridiculous 16 hours to repair will not bother for pirates at just tier one will wait till much stronger so gets no damage. For me only voyage, I got 3 sapphires for my troubles.

    Wow, pricy. Thanks for the warning. I think I'll need to upgrade some emerald merchants to generate more income before I use the EQ for battle.

    Congratulations on your black pearl. What did you spend it on?

    To go from Tier 1 to Tier 2 it cost 15 emeralds (3 emeralds x 5 clicks)
    Voyage costs at Tier 2: 21,882,128 / 39,387,828 / 105,034,208
    Tier 2, attack and defense are each 411 (Tier 10 battleship is 355)
    To get to Tier 3, it would cost 20 emeralds (4 emeralds per click)

    Just spend the 27 mil for the nine hour trip...
    But i don't really know if this brings the black pearl home!
    Because, when i tapped at the box, only the 4 emeralds appear.

    Strange especially when nic insisted that that black pearls were only intended to come from fighting very powerful pirates whom they have not designed into the game yet.

    well i have 1 black pearl since a long time ago.
    i get it from one of the ship (i forget which one)
    just that one.

    by the way, this is soo pricy for the ships voyage.
    I can't think of how much the cost for ships that returning black pearl or coconut (in the future if they have it)

    But i didn't fight any pirates!
    I also don't have the crossed sabers icon! (there are no powerful pirates on my normal map, just the poop ones ^^)

    The post from nic clearly says that they come from fighting strong pirates.
    where did i get my black pearl from?
    So, when it is not from the queen and also not from the pirates...where did it come from?

    Very strange!

    The one black pearl came from a quest. Everyone gets 1 and only 1. Not enough to do anything... Oops, I was thinking of the coconut. I haven't seen the elusive black pearls.

    You're not confusing the black pearl with the coconut, are you?

    Can you post a screen shot?

    Upgrade cost update.

    Teir 4 voyage costs:-
    5 hours - 45,656,024
    9 hours - 82,180,840
    24 hours - 219,148,912. Returned 25 emeralds.


    Upgrade to teir 5 costs 30 emeralds.

    5 hours - 65,855,316
    9 hours - 118,539,560
    24 hours - 316,105,504

    Will report back in 24 hours! I guess 30 emeralds to be returned though. May have to stop the voyages soon as the cost is getting silly now.
