Aren't you proud of me????" like the cat leaving me a dead bird and not understanding why I'm not thrilled...

    In other words - consider it funny, imagine a odd reason why the explorer would think that item is so precious (maybe the cheese sandwich is made with a cheese that's from his home town and very tough to find and to him it is special).

    All kidding aside, I think a level of randomness for such things is by design and an overall good idea. Truly rare items shouldn't be common - and if someone brings one back every time how rare is that? It's actually a chance for a rare item, not a guarantee.
    I think its a rarity that a cheese sandwich/fish platter/solid sandwich or Aunt Irma's basket makes it back without the big fella eating it. As for the sandmans powder...I think if you look close enough you'll find its crumbs from the above

    Rarity search is kind of ok- but maybe not compared to all the books needed . I use them to get a few bag of rainbow snow. Artefact on the onther hand is totally useless. But so is most of the skill setting for explorers and geos. By the time you have enough books put, you dont really need the stuff they find.

    I have reclaimed most of my book from geos and from those explorers that had skills like artefact search and used the books on the generals instead.
    If for some reason support feels the need to edit what I wrote, please delete entire post instead, dont put words into my mouth that I never said.

    You are confusing the skills. ^^'
    Rarity Search gives small amount of beans, guild coins, coal, etc...
    Artefact Search is the one that gives random buffs.

    @Larili: When they brings back sandman's powder, consider it a cue from our explorer friends, that they want some sleepy-time instead of wandering up and down the coast flipping over rocks in search for rare items to bring back to you. XD
