Tale of the Tape ~ I have continuously sent out every envoy I have w/o exception. Questing all the time since they were introduced.
Number of Sabah Quests (low to high) 26 26 58 5 5 13 = 133 Quests
Profile Item Payoffs
9/28/09 ~ Desert ~ Scarab
9/28/09 ~ Tomb ~ Flowers
9/29/09 ~ Nome ~ Scarab
10/1/09 ~ Tomb ~ Linen
My loong dry spell here w/o items, but still doing them
10/12/09 ~ Tomb ~ Quartz
10/12/09 ~ Tomb ~ Scarab
10/15/09 ~ Tomb ~ Flowers
10/21/09 ~ Holy ~ Armor
10/22/09 ~ Holy ~ Scarab
10/25/09 ~ Med ~ Flowers
10/27/09 ~ Desert ~ Wine
10/29/09 ~ Holy ~ Linen & Scarab
Totals ~ 1 Armor, 1 Wine, 1 Quartz, 2 Linen, 3 Flowers (, 5 Scarabs). I consider Scarabs a failed Quest.
I have no complaints, except possibly too many Scarabs. I don't consider myself very lucky. Others are Questing much better.
I am still continuously Questing.

Bad luck, or bug?
I DO have a hypothesis, though. If we have a high Capital Palace/Empire/Rank, we should be doing the higher quests. My Labs on trying to do Quests on the cheap have not given me very good results.
