I have this lingering suspect that those numbers being specifically there have something to do with a certain hidden ambition. I may be wrong, of course, but they don’t appear anywhere else, so one especulates.
I haven’t seen it in the Expeditions at all, certainly not the expedition preparations anyway - though I did go back to the First Coil to check the screenshot location, and it is showing up there (including a "You have 0 Nodules of Deep Amber.")
Good to see this is getting fixed, though. Trying to get bags of low-quality diamonds in the Bazaar Side-Streets, and not knowing how many Cryptic Clues I had left (without changing tabs to check) was getting a little tedious. :-)
