Doubloons

Postby RGJBJE » Wed May 23, 2018 8:31 pm

Where have all the doubloons gone? They were always so plentiful durin’ game play. But now that we can use them to obtain stickers, they’ve become scarce.

I usually wait for Monday's which are double Doubloon day. The ghost ship will also dock pretty frequently.

Just remember to keep Carl, Anya, and Dreadbirds ship docked. This will make the Ghost Ship appear more often in your last dock.

Where are you used to getting them? I've only been able to get them from the Ghost Ship Captain, blowing up the GSC Cave and a very occasional 1st slot item in GSC.

I am seeing the Ghost Ship at my docks almost constantly. I finish an order and only a few boats later he is back. He's gotten to be as big a nuisance as Carl.

are you doing boat trades?

I've worked hard on boat trades since they changed it 5 days ago I needed 5 stickers to get my ships mate to level 2 and I've just maxed it.

I've done about 30 ghost ship trades today and managed to buy about 15 in 10 hours playing. its more difficult if you don't have as much time to spend.

like others have already said best day is Monday. they are out there with a little work. just be patient and you will get there.

I have had poor Carl tied up at the dock for like a month now. I never click him lol. And I get doubloons at a good rate. Knock on wood.

if you have access to ghost ship cove you can use them in the second slot to get stickers for ships mate, black panther and frightful fox.

the first slot has chests which will sometimes have normal pet stickers.

They have changed the items that appear on the sales board at Ghost Ship Cove. The middle slot now sells stickers for Panther, First Mate, or Flying Fox (bat). Usually 3 stickers for 10 doubloons. Slot 3 also often offers stickers.

This is my experience also.

I’ve adopted a strategy for completing/dismissing boats that works very well: Get all 4 ready to go at the same time. Fill or dismiss FIRST the one I would like to see back soonest. Fill or dismiss LAST the one I least want to see back soon.
