City 1: Stele Collapses in 10/17, 10/19
City 2: Stele Collapses in 10/16, 10/18, 10/21

Today's date: 10/23

I'll be expecting a collapse in city 1 soon. I just don't bother with donating lux anymore. It's not worth it, especially with inactive and vacation mode cities bloating the cost.

I did a total of 797 quests.

Total lux spent: 567,300
Total ships spent: 3,075
Total bread spent: 307,500

Verdict: 10 scarabs

Basically a 0.0125470514% chance of landing a scarab per quest, at least from my experience.

Thanks for the posts. It'll be some help since I'm curious on the rates on which items/scarabs are won. Don't know how to use Excel unfortunately. I've been recording my quest results on my papyrus scroll since I made a new account. Might as well put it to use. Here's what I got so far. Soma (Theori...

I now have 5 linen. But that's what I get for sticking with the cheap quests for now.

Finally got a scarab. Stopped keeping track of total lux I spent a while ago. Other than that, I have 4 toilet paper and 2 flowers. I haven't done holy pilgrimage in a while (just don't know if I can risk sending 4k lux a day to look for items). I'd rather take the bricks than the construction bonus...

My ratio of lux to bricks is 1:2.49 so far. Not so good. ;p

That's discounting holy pilgrimage (since bricks aren't expected there obviously).

Looks like my level 9 palace will be done in 1 and a half hours. o.O By the way, I noticed the temple still says 6h 10m to build. I don't have a temple in 4th city yet. Barracks are at 2h 19m defaults also. Guess the bonus doesn't work on putting up actual buildings then (not that I'd waste it on a ...

Quests should be lot of help for me personally since I was at 1 city a week ago and founded 3 more since. The speed bonus will be great for my cap, and I can't have enough bricks ever since I decided to expand. My only concern is if there'll be a brick glut on the trade wall. How is it in Sabah? Doe...

I know. It's just all my cities are leather. Plus I rarely ever made sandals in the first place due to low profitability/diminishing returns in trades.

Looks like the sandals shops are gonna get used more.

So do quests stop altogether when all your palaces are level 22?

Edit: nevermind. Got quests mixed up with the actual envoys you get per spec point.

Nice! I have way too many lux goods collecting dust. Looks like they'll find a use soon.

Can't wait 'til it hits Theoris.
