    Lol. Well I guess this girl's ignorance is showing with regard to things such as naval ships. I guess a Cruiser Battleship would be mutually exclusive now wouldn't it?

    I guess it's just a "Bat" ship but not a battleship

    I'll edit my post.

    Does anyone have the stats for Tier 1 or Tier 2, I didn't catch them when I first upgraded?

    And anyone that's fully upgraded -- can you give the info for Tier 10?

    Anyone else send it out for a voyage yet?

    On 24 hrs voyage, Tier 10 it returned 17 saphires.
    For fighting it is 106 swords/106 shield compared with Golden Hind's 166 and John Merchantman's 100.
    Cost to repair after being beaten by tougher pirate 228,360 coins

    I'm not sure but I think the first tier was 20 ATt & Def and was 80 pearls to upgrade and I'll tell you tier 2 when it comes back from voyage

    Tier 2 had 30 def and att it gave me 2 sapphires from a 24 hour tripName:  IMG_0102[1].jpg

    @Claddaugh, Wow, a little disappointing w/ only 17 sapphires at maximum tier and maximum voyage isn't it?

    @Brycek, Richard Norton, and Allcha -- thanks about to update with your additional info.

    Errrrr, after upgrading Dark Cruiser to Tier 5 and sending out for a 9 hour voyage -- I still only got 1 measly sapphire!!


    I'll tell you what I would do at this point though -- if I had it all to do over again and I was at Level 15 or so and less:

    1) I would keep my Dark Cruiser at Tier 1 until I leveled up more.

    2) I would be sending the Dark Cruiser out on 5 hour voyages around the clock. Of course I am assuming it will have to return 1 sapphire as well -- not coming back empty, lol.
    That would be 5 sapphires every 25 hours or so, for a few thousand coins. You will be able to stockpile the sapphires and you'll really start going through them once you hit about level 16. (You'll start using a few at levels 12 - 15)

    Fully upgraded, 24 hour voyage...... 10 measly sapphires. I feel robbed, let down and a little bit like crying! Not really, bit ( insert your choice of word here ) really.
    I love PG if I get the quest and its not a ruby one.

    Sounds great idea for me. I will post if there is no saphire on my 5 hour returns.

    Thank you guys for all this information. Knowing these numbers I do feel less sad about not getting the Dark Cruiser, just because I am already over level 30. But I still think it can be a valid addition to all sub lvl20 players.

    Updated again. Anyone have the voyage costs for Tier 1 and/or Tier 2?

    Thank you everyone that posted additional info.

    Evidently if you keep the Dark Cruiser at Tier 1 and send on a 5 hour voyage -- the average cost per sapphire is about 1,000 coins per sapphire -- waiting for actual voyage costs, but I think they were actually less than 1000.

    And at Tier 10, on the 24 hour voyage, if you generously take 10 -12 coins average -- average cost per sapphire is about 60,000 coins per sapphire.

    I've upgraded to Tier 5, and won't be upgrading anymore at the present time -- but just running 5 hour voyages. I'm paying almost 12k per sapphire, but that's actually still a very good price per sapphire compared to sending the Galleon, and about what I pay with my strategy for fighting the pirates.

    Of course, several sapphires per day aren't a whole lot -- but in addition to your other methods of retrieving sapphires, it's probably one of the most cost effective ones especially if you were lucky enough to keep the Cruiser at a really low tier.

    Too late for many of us-- but those finishing quest late and/or those that haven't upgraded yet -- you may really benefit from this info!!

    Excellent thread hibiscus! Kudos!

    Mine is at T3, and have done two short voyages, with each returning 1 sapphire. I'm gonna take your advice and just keep it at that tier. But I noticed that you have no info yet on 24 hours at T3, so I'm sending it on a long voyage to find out. Will let you know when it comes back. But if it comes back with even 2, it's a bargain.

    Thank you Marcus, really appreciate it!

    And am looking forward to hearing what you get back from 24 hour voyage. I might have been really unlucky with my 9 hour voyage at Tier 5 to only get one -- just don't know yet. Was a little too ticked off to attempt a 24 hour voyage yet.

    But one thing I would say -- at your Tier 3, if you can check on your game often enough -- you are guaranteed one sapphire with every 5 hour voyage. Therefore, I would hope the 24 hour voyage averages at least 3 -- more than that would definitely be a bargain.

    Because remember -- you can send it out every time you see it back in port -- and if you are at Tier 3 -- you are guaranteed 3 sapphires in three five hour voyages, (morning, midday and night) because it cannot return less than 1 sapphire each voyage.

    That's a 50 percent increase over the possibility of a 2 sapphire return on a 24 hour voyage, at about half the total cost of a 24 hour voyage, and over a week's time can really make a difference with those first sapphire merchants.

    The Dark Cruiser only gets sapphires? No pearls? I'm not at the point where I need sapphires for upgrades.

    I'm not at that point either, but I'm not going to look at a sapphire horse in the mouth.

    Oh God, I didn't just say that, did I?
