Fixed as of 20:00 GMT at least. Made this to while exploring the possibilities, but never had the opportunity to do so. Big Grin When I got the card last night and today the conversion was 3:1, but only one at a time. Maybe it's still a nice EPA.

Hah, 3.5EPA sounds more like it. Though there's already precedent for way more profitable opportunity cards, and with less convoluted grinds to boot - like Docks favours, which IIRC are around 6EPA and all that's needed is to trade them in for supplies and then go on an expedition.

I know I read on Discord about grinding Lays for cards, but I somehow find it hard to believe it can reach such numbers.
Maybe there aren't that many cards as I think there are. smile

The Queen got a little bit of a nerf, and seems to have two outcomes now:
- 3 Attar for 1 FiHP (seems to be more common)
- All Attar for [Attar/3] FiHP (rare, but not super-rare - 20% perhaps?)

The latter still makes this very profitable (esp. at high volumes), just not enough to fuel the 11 and 16.8 EPA grinds we came up with yesterday.

The new Arbor content is absolutely lovely. The entrancing prose seems to conjure this dreamworld into being right before my eyes: spices, flowers, attar, chestnuts, balconies, serpents--all of it! It's inspiring all of the symphonies I'm writing for SotC (I've started naming these, incidentally, since the Empress seems to think they are all the same. wink)

Oh, so this still is a possibility! Best to start pilling back, head S and cashout with every card's permission to linger. Doing so, there's no need to move every time because you head back where you were last time.

Thanks for the update, mate!

I have been gathering Attar, waiting for something new to show up! Is that the wrong way to go about it?

I'm just lazy and spy on the embassy 5 times. ~3.57 epa over 7 actions; basically a better Overgoat card that gets me more watchful experience.

Not sure where/if this was posted, but I raise Attar to 77 and there was no new option on the card.
Some planning and a small error, but I also managed to get it to 78 to visit Far Arbor with 77, but, alas, no new option in any of the 5 regions.

Is there anything in the dream/nightmare states with having Attar?

I have well over 100 attar now, just been farming it since I tried most of the options but haven't really gotten around to figuring out what the best way to spend it is. Is it the queen option, then? I could go over to her and start flooding her with attar next.

I believe the Direful Reflections, which are hard to get anywhere else, are a better reward than the favours in high places.

Well, considering how easy they are to get via this route, scarcity rather ceases to be a consideration. For me it's a matter purely of echo value.

So queen is the best bet?

Direful Reflections are nice if you're in need of them, but trading Attar for Favours has better monetary value. Both items are valued 12.5 E, but DR costs 7 Attar while FiHP only costs 3 Attar each.
