Missions

Jump to: navigation, search

Missions are jobs that can be done repeatedly to gain experience and money mostly without fighting npcs. They are similar to Agatean family missions or Coffee Nostra jobs, except that you get to choose what you want to do and you can do them pretty much continuously.

Jobs are available in Ankh-Morpork[1], Sto Lat[2], Ohulan Cutash[3], Genua[4], Bes Pelargic and the terrains, with reports of more things to be added all across the Disc in the future.[5]

XP reduction

Some types of jobs have a reduced experience reward if you repeat them too freqently (although you still get the same amount of money). Specifically, if it's been less than an hour since the last time you got full xp from the job, the xp is halved for each time you've done the job in the last hour.

For example, the Errand Boy job normally gives 6400 xp. But let's say you do it several times within an hour. The first time you do it, you get full xp--6400. The second time--twelve minutes after the first time--you only get 3200 xp. The third time--twenty minutes after the first time--you get 1600 xp. The fourth time--fifty-five minutes after the first time--you get only 800 xp. And then, the fifth time, slightly over an hour after the first time (but, notably, much less than an hour after the previous time), you get full xp once again.

This is true for jobs from the Ankh-Morpork Job Market (with each type of job there being counted separately), the jobs that Theodor Hackett assigns, finding items for Miss Pennie Laced, the pottery jobs with Ozzie Guntram, and the Ohulan Cutash general shop jobs.

There is also a cap on the overall mission xp rate. If you are doing many missions in a short period of time, the xp you get may be truncated by anywhere from a few dozen to several thousand xp.
