    Question Skill bonus adventure quests

    Is there a limit to the number of skill bonus adventure quests one can have? Ie the one from the top tier exlorer skill Streetwise Negotiator. I currently have 2 active, and a friend has had 3, but is there a limit? Can one have more then one for the same adventure? If there is a limit it would be nice if the game showed it somehow. If it's not it would just be good to know to be able to plan ahead (which is what this game is all about).

    I mean the bonus quests for adventures you get from the top tier explorer skill Streetwise Negotiator. I'll update OP to clearify.

    ZkilfinG - The most I have ever had is 3 and sometimes I have had them there for 3 weeks before getting around to clearing them. I don't think you can have more than 3 but I would love to be proven wrong.


    Vodkat - Skill Bonus Adventures are mini quests that your explorers can bring back if he has been upgraded through the science tree and if you are lucky enough. They provide extra (quest loot) loot for completing the adventure in addition to what you normally get.


    An example being the below
    g

    The red squares show the bonus quests available to me and the available extra loot from the selected bonus quest. For L50's the XP is just lost and not converted to star coins and you also dont see any addition for Premium being active.

    I had the same question myself, so I have done lots of experimenting with this on test, with hundreds of explorer cycles, and I have talked to and confirmed this with the support guys, and I can share the following conclusions:
    1. You can have an unlimited number of Skill Bonus adventure quests (see image below), however....
    2. You can only have one bonus quest per adventure, and therefore it is inherently limited by the number of adventures out there
    3. The bonus quest is not delivered with epic raid adventures, cooperative adventures and mini adventures - support have agreed that this is a bug, and have raised it to the dev team
    4. The support team also say that seeing the "Sophisticated Pillager" skill listed at the bottom of the mail does not necessarily mean that you will get a bonus quest, however I have not been able to replicated this, as every time I have seen the skill in the mail I have received a quest, unless I already had one for that adventure (point 2 above) or it was a special adventure (point 3) above - if anyone can replicate what support have told me I would be interested to know

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I got in my quest book 2 x Victor the Vicious bonus quest (second one a week or so after the first one, still pending to do), bought a VtV lootspot and got completed just 1 bonus quest. This behaviour is the same for Daily Quests, if you have 2 active daily quests (in premium) asking to do the same adventure, you get completed just one if you do that adventure or buy a lootspot.

    That is very interesting, as after dozens of repeated 'finds' of the same adventure on Test, showing Sophisticated Pillager in the mail (allowing for point 4 above), I could never get it to give a second bonus quest for the same adventure, and the support team also confirmed that this was the expected behaviour.

    Maybe it behaves differently on Production and Test?

    If anyone has a screen shot where they have two of the same skill bonus quest that would be great.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Maybe urgabel is getting confused between a bonus quest and a daily/waiting quest asking you to complete VtV? I too have tested this extensively (on live server) and have never had more than one quest for a single adventure. Indeed, I recently got a Nords (and only Nords), the skill said it had fired, but I didn't get a second quest.

    That BB have admitted some bugs here is interesting. I want to be paid back for lost revenue!

    Are you a casual or part-time player? Don't want a chatty guild or expect lots of support?
    And do you want the chance to earn a few guild coins but don't want to be forced to do guild quests on a daily basis?

    Then join GQS (Guild Quests (STILL!) Suck) on Northisle!
    Mail Gerontius here or in game for an invite.

    No confusion, and just to avoid any doubt I'll repeat: I mean 2 Bonus Quests for the same adventure. I also stated I tried to complete both at once with a lootspot, and discovered it works the same as Daily Quest: if you have 2 Daily Quests (due to being in premium) for the same adventure, you need to do it twice.

    This has been in this server, less than a month ago. Unfortunately I have no screenshots.
