Spite Promenade: how to get more trophies? Messages in this topic - RSS

Hello there!, it's time for another game question:
How does anyone get more than 15/20 Pickpocket's Trophies?

There are potential options to redeem 30 or 50 of them...

Even going through Blythenhale and meeting a Constable and a Special Constable, I don't get that many.

4/5 actions, each returning 2/3/4 trophies --> an average of 12 to 20 trophies.

Does it depend on the yet unimplemented Veilgarden Promenade, or is there something I am missing?

Luck when drawing cards. Some of the cards can give way more trophies than others.

It took me ages to realise that there are a couple of options that refill Approaching your Destination and Unseen.
[spoiler]The Curiosity Shop and Loitering[/spoiler]

Careful juggling and choice of prey then allows you to stay longer and snaffle more. Having said that, I never managed the 50.

Yes, but not recently. I've never gotten past 40, though. I quit doing promenades for that reason. I find that it's much easier, and more profitable, to do Heists because it's easier to manage your cards by collecting Inside Informations, keys, and Escape Routes in advance.

All right, I went for it very carefully, got a bit lucky with the Curiosity shop, and got to 43. I imagine one instance of Jack would have pushed me to 50, so it's technically doable.

It is definitely not profitable, given how good heists and expeditions are in that regard, but it's fun. It suffers from the same problem heists do: limited deck. You have actions to spend but no cards to draw, so you stay stuck, waiting for the cards to refill, which is a bit silly. Flash Lay's and the zee work much better in this regard.


Also, why the huge extra cost in actions spent to enter the promenade? I mean, the Nadir which is supposed to be hard to find and hard to enter costs three actions to enter - and can be immensely profitable. The promenade costs four and it's right in the middle of the city.

Still, looking forward to the Veilgarden route.

Aaaaand I just managed 50 trophies, without the Jack card. So there's that.

Ok, I managed to set my new record at 30.

You can be careful, use only the best cards and delay with a couple of lucky loiterings,
but it also depends on luck: can you draw Jack/ Constable/ Pickpocket, or are you stuck with Drunk/ Gaoler / Costermonger/ An argument?

I never bothered much with this, but now I'm curious to see what the record is for the most Pickpocket's Trophies...

Oh, do try! Since I got 50 something without drawing Jack, I am guessing that even 60 is possible.
And then of course we will give the loot to charity.

Indeed we will. Absolutely. Maybe "Weasels' Wants and Welfare"? I can send you their address. It's very close to where I live...

By that rationale, rather than do the promenade when you have lots of AP, it sounds like the best time to visit is when you're flush out of AP and have a full deck. As an EF I can then cycle through 10 cards and let the time replenish my deck and AP.
