Supplies (Uncharted Isles) are a type of currency used in The Arc to go on voyages to uncharted isles. They are sold by Rosie on Waiko and are stored in the currency pouch.
Supplies initially cost 25 chimes each. This can be reduced five times (three chimes each) to a minimum price of ten chimes each by purchasing the Supplies Cost Reduction reward from Boni at the Waiko Reward Shop.
Rosie will supply the player with a minimum of five free supplies daily via her supply box, which stores up to a maximum of 50 supplies. They can be claimed by clicking on the crate next to her merchant stand. If collecting the free supplies would put the player past their current supplies cap, the additional supplies will be lost. Attempting to collect the daily supplies while at the maximum number of supplies yields the message: You already have the maximum of [X] supplies. The initial supplies cap of 200 can be increased four times (200 supplies each) to 1,000 by purchasing a Supplies Cap Increase from the Waiko Reward Shop.
The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
- patch 17 October 2016 (Update):
- The symbol for 'Uncharted isle supplies' in the currency pouch has been corrected.
- patch 10 October 2016 (Update):
- The supply cap now starts at 200 (up from 100) and increases up to 1,000 with upgrades (up from 500).
- Uncharted isle supplies have been added to the currency pouch.
- patch 1 August 2016 (Update):
- Rosie has been feeling generous lately and so will now allow players to grab 5 supplies from her crate for free, every day.
- The initial cost to purchase Uncharted Isle supplies has been reduced from 50 chimes to 40. This can be lowered even further by purchasing 'Supplies Cost Reduction' upgrades, to as low as 20 chimes per supply (previously 40).
- Choosing to Buy All from Rosie the Chandler in Waiko now correctly buys all the supplies you can afford with the chimes in your backpack.
- Altered the tooltips on the Uncharted Isles travel interface to reflect the number of rare resources players can hope to gain from spending those hard earned supplies: Small = 0 to 1, Medium = 1 to 2 and Large = 2 to 3.
- Players going on median expeditions (12 supplies) will now always find at least 1 rare resource node, and players going on long voyages (25 supplies) will now always find at least 2 rare resources nodes. Please note, we are aware of an issue where wobbegongs have a very small chance of not being guaranteed which is currently being investigated.
