I have my ship, but I need a point of Monstrous Anatomy. Not with items, but organically.

Is this path viable for raising Monstrous Anatomy? I'm a Silverer and I already entered Parabola once to have a look around. Unlocked the Laboratory Reflection and Waswood.


1) Lost in Strange Lands
2) Continue towards (Quarry Home)
3) Face the (Parabolan Quarry) in (Quarry Home)
4) Strike down the (Parabolan Quarry) here in (Quarry Home)
5) Embattled with the (Parabolan Quarry)
6) Ambush the (Parabolan Quarry) at close range.

Unless they changed something, all the crabs are gone.

They got fished out yesterday. Seems to have been much more demand for this than FB expected (there was a finite number of crabs and it didn't take us all that long to catch the lot). Maybe I am wrong and have missed something, but for all my characters, the crabs are longer around.

BUT you can still get ready for their next visit; they (and maybe other aquatic friends) will be back one day!

Really? When will they come back? Next year?

If I remember correctly, this crab hunting is another of their fancy new 'living world events'.

I'm still not sure whether crabs were worth hunting, echo-wise. The few I caught gave 5-6 echoes of Rostygold, plus a bit over 16e of other stuff. The final crabs were apparently worth almost 20e of Rostygold in addition to the rest, but I'm not sure how many actions it took to catch one on average

The only word we've had on this forum is:

Sometimes FBG folks say things in other forums like Discord, but that's so hard to keep track of

At least this time all the pieces of information are on publicly-viewable channels!

From the announcement that introduced Living World Events: (emphasis added)

Bruno Dias wrote:
Currently, we have two of those in the pipeline, with more to come in the future depending on how you all react to this set.

These events are small, designed to last for about a week, and with durations and outcomes that depend on what players do. They are meant to be recurring, appearing several times throughout the year.

Pretty sure they were not. I never got a super late crab hunt, but the ones I had I estimated at somewhere just under 3 EPA. Could be a bit more or less, depending on your stats and which options you picked, but I think they would not compete with the top grinds. And they didn't give unusual or hard-to-get items.


So it's certainly not a waste of time, but also no big loss (echo-wise) to miss them. I suspect next time the crabs appear there will be a bit less desire to immediately go and hunt them to extinction.

Social invitations of all kinds welcome! Deadly sparring, plant battles, etc.

Send me an in-game connection request if you need a discordant missive or a point of notability, or if there's some letters you want to trade.

Hopefully those crabs were just appetizers. I want lifebergs.

There was an ES which was partly set on a lifeberg. I can't say I have very pleasant memories of it, though (Where You and I Must Go.)
