Limited Use?[edit source]

Mine was removed from my inventory after 17 uses. There wasn't any chat message about its disappearance, however. Also, is it known if we can receive another one after the first is used up, or is it a one-time thing? --Zants (talk) 14:15, August 15, 2016 (UTC)

I've gotten two. Zeta12ti (talk) 21:20, August 16, 2016 (UTC)


Clanmates have also confirmed that they've received them multiple times after using them. They appear to have a random number of uses before being destroyed. It also seems that once you get it the first time that you'll receive it again pretty frequently, it's just getting it the first time that might take a while, as in my case and a few clanmates - I've yet to receive it on my alt account, and the one I referenced in the first post is yet to get one back after the first one was destroyed. --Zants (talk) 05:29, August 17, 2016 (UTC)
Finally got it on my alt account (from fishing), also got a second one on my main yesterday; basically it seems to boil down to fishing at Rock Pools having a lower drop rate than other activities (as brought up in the "Activities that don't give shell" topic below) and that's why it took so long to receive it on both accounts. --Zants (talk) 17:29, August 20, 2016 (UTC)

Activities that don't give shell[edit source]

I fished and banked over 3000 Raw tropical trout to deposit in mass later with 100% illuminati aura and never gotten a shell. I cook fish for 5 minutes and I get one. Is it jumping the gun to state fishing does not give them? --Jlun2 (talk) 22:53, August 19, 2016 (UTC)

I *just now* got it for the first time on my alt account from fishing at Rock Pools after maxing out the temp gauges every day since the release and attending every happy hour that I could. So, it's definitely possible... but it's obvious that certain areas (Weight Lifting and Hook A Duck for example) have much higher chances to get drops while areas like Rock Pools seem to have a lower chance, maybe due to the difference in actions performed per amount of time? --Zants (talk) 17:23, August 20, 2016 (UTC)
No idea, but I keep getting them when depositing raw tropical trout enmass during happy hour. Still never gotten one from actually fishing lol. :) --Jlun2 (talk) 17:49, August 25, 2016 (UTC)
Actually, the same exact thing has happened to me for my past 3 shells. I have to wonder if maybe it was updated. --Zants (talk) 19:07, August 25, 2016 (UTC)
