In case anyone’s wondering, the Quirk challenges in fishing work the same as last year, but don’t reduce quirks anymore. They do appear to increase them (up to 5) on failure, however! It’s a quirker’s paradise. (Where everything’s straightforward if all your quirks are over 6.)
I had forgotten how annoying it is to wait for the chosen recipient of your catch to show up. And how annoying it is when your catch of 8, which cost a lot of echoes, turns into a 4 by the time you take your pick of the cove. Still, I got most of what I needed last time I did this (before I rage-quit), so it won’t be so bad this time.
Does anyone know if there are any new unique prizes this year? I think I got them all last year, and while I’m enjoying the festival again if there’s nothing new then I can relax instead of rushing to try and get all the Wreckers Cove values.
First round of fishing gave me a Strange Catch of 6. Didn’t have the option to give the Catch to the Drownies. Instead was able to exchange it for various items.
Went fishing again, had a Strange Catch of 5. Clicked on Offer the Catch to The Drownies. Was overwhelmed with the options - none of which I knew and not knowing if I could return after getting my destiny I chose "perhaps not" so I could research more.
The problem is that when I went back to the Fruits Festival my Catch was gone.
Is this a bug or a feature? edited by MayorFasi on 8/20/2015
I hope you enjoy the Festival. I’m not sure if you can be sent to a menace area from the Festival, as normally when you are at Zea you aren’t. Also if you play through the regular Mutton Island content (a time passing carousel attending the Great Feast at the end reduces Wounds and Nightmares.
Speaking of the benefits of being on Mutton Island, am I right in thinking that the Chef is the most efficient source of Uncanny Incanabula? Unlike Benthic’s Press, he doesn’t require 4 actions’ worth of connection every time.
