    State Which Merchant/Voyage Gave You Which Object

    I just realized there may be some actual logic to which merchants provide each object and I thought it might be helpful to know.

    I'm also wondering if the level to which you have them upgraded also affects your chances of getting the item. For example I have loads of canvases and bolts and I have the merchants that have been giving me these fully upgraded. But I haven't been getting any ropes. I saw someone post they got a rope from the rope maker and I never have, but it's the last (and hardest) sapphire merchant to upgrade and mine was still on tier one. Well I just upgraded it to tier two and about fell over when I collected and got a rope from it this time.

    I thought it might help if we post - for this weekend's quest and for the crafting for relics over the long term as well.

    I'll update this first page as people post their observations.

    hibiscus i'm also getting these from voyages too, so not sure if you want to include that above as well, or just leave this thread for merchants?

    Sure I'll add on the info. I'm thinking w the voyages it may be totally random but maybe not. It'll be a good way to find out. Thanks for the suggestion krisb.

    Maybe it's just my eyes, but for the life of me, I cannot see which merchants give what. I wish PG would work on that -- yes, i can check my imventory, but it's hard to get very engaged with a feature that you can't see, so I remain kind of 'meh' about trading. It's a bit ironic that we have massive coin gushers for low level houses but items that are supposd to be collected for quests blink by in the most fleeting instant!

    i've only been able to see the bolt icons occasionally. I haven't seen a coconut or serum icon at all, but i have collected some.

    the orange grove gives serum and many other merchants and you can get serums from merchants too.

    angel have you been getting these objects since putting any of them by the 10% tree? it seems to me that the bolts and serums have dried up since i put these merchants by the bonus trees.

    I've not got banana or coconut merchants but I got 1 coconut. I too can't see when I get items. Im sure I got my coconut from a voyage. Will make it kinda difficult to get credit for these itrems rarely and randomly seen, since no merchant.

    i do not pay much attention to which merchant gives me what as the pattern is not always repeated when i collect.. i could get different things from different merchants next time i collect from my merchants. Though i have done better in collecting this evening than the past 2 days.

    I've gotten to where I've been able to see the canvas and the bolt pretty easily -- probably because of the blue and silver colors. I barely saw the rope that I got today. I've never seen the serum or the coconut -- I wonder if they even appear as icons coming out when you collect one.

    It was very tedious but I checked the resources page after I collected from each merchant the last time I collected. And I actually got a serum and saw where it was from -- just as you saw once DA -- it was from the Orange Grove.

    It does seem like there is some pattern or logic to the collection to me though. The bolts tend to come from the "mechanical" merchants. The coconuts from the food and agricultural merchants. Canvas from the "fabric" merchants. The rope from the rope maker -- and not sure which others. And now we know the serum comes from at least the Orange Grove. This may be helpful info to players striving to buy a merchant that is spewing out a craft item they desperately want. Or upgrading that particular merchant -- as it may be that the more upgraded a merchant is, the better the chance to collect an object.

    I'll add what people collect from voyages, but I'll need a lot of help with that because I hate voyaging -- don't do it very often. It makes my game lag so bad and I prefer the much better return on investment from fighting pirates.

    I did get a coconut from the Magellan this morning though, so I'll add that.

    Hollow Witch Ship gave me a coconut. The Crafted Cruiser and Beth have always been good for rope.

    I can tell which ships give me supplies - you get the note at the bottom of the screen but watching those merchants is definitely for the younger crowd. It makes me cross eyed to try to see them when I collect from the merchants.

    If I pay attention tonight, I think I am going to get to trade for my first relic. I just have to finish crafting 1 medicine before my trading ship takes off.

    @ Lucee, thank you, I've added your info.

    @ Flowerpower, lol. My eyes aren't that young either, but I'll add the info for the merchants in my game -- hopefully they don't vary too much from player to player, who knows.

    What I need the most help with is putting what the ships bring back. I usually just voyage if a quest requires it or if I really want an object that I have trouble getting any other way.

    My Parker and Dark cruiser gave me sera, Summer speedster, Crafty and John M gave me canvases. Also noticed the Coal mine made a bolt for me. Also Phillip gave me something but can't recall.

    Got a serum from the Rare Rock Quarry merchant! You can see the serum because its bright pink.

    I normally don't pay much attention really as to who brings what because it is so random IMO. Just tapping everything then checking my resources after.

    And yes, the ships bring them in as well. But each day is different...I think it is being rationed out per week or something. Like the dolphins and whales...tons of dolphins but I don't see my whales anymore (after enjoying their daily visits for 3 consecutive days). They've migrated, lol!
