Well, I was gone for 2 and a half months last summer with a family emergency and was unable to log in. My account disappeared while I was gone and I had been here since beta and was just keeping it active and not going immortal. They do still disappear, just don't know how long it takes.

Wish I had that luck. I did trade for 2 scarabs early in the game. My cities are 22, 18, 6, and 6 and 2 monuments maxed. I have some moderate luck with other items but mainly linen and flowers. I have been doing the 6 envoy one twice a day lately, but had been doing a variety of 6: 1,5 : 2,4 : 3,3 f...

I have been sending envoys on all different size missions since the missions started. I have only found 6 and haven't found any at all for about 5 months. Anyone still finding them and which are the better ones to get the results. I am about tempted to finally go immortal because I can't find any.

I also believe it is just a luck thing. A friend has gotten scarabs and 14 of the other items and just does the quests randomly. I have gotten nothing but the one hammer in addition to the bricks and construction time and do two sets of quests daily. edit: we are both at the point we could go immort...

I hadn't really built much since the envoys were introduced as I was just checking out the envoy system before going immortal. I have been trying to send the envoys out twice a day checking on results.

amount of bonus construction time used

With all the bonus construction time I earned, I thought I would build something. I thought it might use just a portion of my hours up to about the normal construction time with the 15 minutes added to that. I was surprised to see that it took all of the hours that I had accumulated, almost 200 hour...

When the quests were introduced, I was doing 1 holy pilgrimage then 12 hours later the other quests daily. When the Punt and Mediterranean quests were introduced, I started doing the Punt and Nome alternating with the Mediterranean and Desert quests every day. My results: Construction time and brick...

Whatever they make, I will play it. I loved outpost, caesar, pharoah, theme hospital, rollercoaster tycoon, stronghold, and just about every other city builder, empire builder, building simulation etc for the last 20 years. Children of the Nile was and is fantastic along with all the rest of tilted ...

Well, just yesterday Reed & I looked at the DB and the % were exactly what they should be, so it is (was) nothing against you personally. Not sure if this makes you feel any better, but maybe your luck will flip the other direction. No problem. My "luck" is notoriously bad in almost all the games I...

I am using sandals as I produce tons of them.

I had been able to do all the quests once a day (have 6 envoys) and as of this morning, just bricks and construction time. I am trying the med now and will try punt later today. Will see what those bring.

How do you get the new quests? Do you need more than the six envoys? All I see are the Nome, Desert, tomb and holy ones.

Well, I am feeling really left out. 1 holy pilgrimage every day since the start and nothing but construction time. No linen, no gems, no scarabs, no anything. I also send out the other quests once a day and have only gotten bricks. I was really hoping for something out of this to justify coming back...

I agree, after 8 pilgrimages, I am 16k less lux goods and only 96 hours construction time ahead for buildings I have no intention of constructing at this point. I did the other envoy ones and only got bricks.

I noticed that when I hads a lower level city, the losses seemed to balance the found jewels. As my main city got larger, it seems that I find less jewels and have many more lost ships.

I did the first lower level quests the first time and only got increasing amounts of bricks as the cost went up. I keep doing the holy pilgrimage and all I get is the 12 hours. I never have gotten any other item. I do the quest once a day.
