    I love this mission as long as it let us to TT the armor at least. I hope there would be more missions like this, it gives me a feel I'm collecting stuff to do a real mission instead of non-stop grinding. I had tons of fun when collecting the materials myself, I hope Arkadia-team can further expand the materials needed for it to something like treasure, ores, enmatters especially those ones with no markup at all instead of putting some generic shit that people can simply buy it cheap on Calypso and bring them here. So people are force to actually play or at least it helps local Arkadians to sell their goods easier. Anyway I would say it is a nice try, and I LIKE IT.

    Hadraada isn't bad, but not all that good either. It's listed as common for hadraada; no other Arkadian mob is better in that respect.

    BTW, I've noticed something else about Viceroy armour. As well as being a little better than Gremlin and very slightly more durable, it's a lot lighter. In fact, Viceroy isn't much heavier than Pixie or Musca. This might not matter too much, but if you're mining wearing armour it might make a difference?

    Kinnison is right, Hadraada is about as good as it gets for Yellow paint drops. But still it's not good at all... I spent several hours hunting each of the mobs listed on Entropedia to drop Yellow paint, and Hadraada was the only one that dropped more than 1 time per 200ped of ammo. I cycled through a few thousand ped on the bigger Hadraada, and collected only 130 Yellow paint, so I gave up and bought the rest on auction at ridiculous high MU%. Sad part is, I think it's a safe bet that most of that paint is coming from Caly mobs. So importers are making more from this, than locals do. If you do decide to "hunt" for the paint I hope you are patient, cause you will need to be.

    I looted some from Feran 1-2 days ago, but it is rare loot for sure.
    I'll try my luck with Hadraada next time.

    I believe the droprate was altered. I looted over 700 cans from the 1200 beladoth mission on my previous Ark visit few months back (luckily still had them in storage when Viceroy was introduced) but this time after doing 2500/4800 I looted maybe only 10 cans or so. None of other Ark mobs listed on Entropedia as dropping yellow didn't gave me a single can.

    Orange is impossible too, after gathering about 600 cans in 2 weeks I gave up and bought the rest. It's sad to pay 170% for something you had over 14k cans a month ago and wasted on free coloring :D

    Yesterday I went to Caly and still amused how it's easy to loot anything I struggled to get on Ark (but don't need anymore), and feel guilty tt'ing the stuff people yearn for on Ark.

    The downside of having lots of Ark-specific loot (ie. timber and hides) is that there's that much less generic/Caly-specific loot...
    Can't have it all, and i doubt anyone wanna give up the Ark loot. ;)

    Jori drop quite a lot of orange too, IIRC. Of course, since even stalkers are small mobs you're not going to get much out of any particular one.

    Tiarak also drop it, and since one of the types of timber needed for one of the missions drops from it...

    For potentially low values of everybody. Not close to all people need or want this strong armor. 400 ped TT locked into a single set is still a lot. Gremlin has a fairly low markup and I really don't think the extra markup you pay for Viceroy is justified by the extra benefit after the drawback of being locked.

    Hm...I don't really mind the extra "tax" (or the non-trade part of it, but that's OT...) but I agree with the OP:

    It SHOULD be said that the item's TT is lower than the mats' TT value for disclaimer purposes...

    Has anyone suggested this to Dr Dobson?

    Yep, it's sad. MA will jump all over this because it's such a great idea for MA in the short run.

    Dont let this thread get out of hand now, we had the discussions before.

    And to answer you Karmic, I doubt this is intended (I don't believe what one person in support said). As same thing happened to other items when it was new, even before viceroy so seems all items have a default "Non tradeable" that you need to disable or something.

    And to all who say you can TT Viceroy, sure now you can but you couldn't at the start and it wasn't intended to be TTed.

    there, that covers it?

    For example, the asi-TTR when it first came out wasn't TT-able. I know because I bought like 200 ped worth looking for a high TIR one :facepalm:
