    Puzzle Pirates Puzzle Experience: List of Times/Battles

    I've made a list over the times it takes to reach the different experience levels.
    Some might find this interesting while others could not care less.

    Note that this is still in the works.


    General notes about puzzle experience:
    - Things that do not end your experience session is things like: Hitting a regular and flotilla LP, pause the puzzle, hitting a break in flotilla.
    - Things that do end your experience session is things like: Hitting the end of a route (Island or SMH), leaving the puzzle, disengaging from sea battle, completing the puzzle (crafting).




    All the times/battles/hands are found using the fastest possible way. Some differences will accrue when changing poker tables, hitting an LP, porting etc.

    If they're all the exact same timings - why don't you just do one table and say it's the same for all puzzles?

    Nice guide though!

    It does. I've tried it before on many puzzles and the exp has gone up.

    Actually, I achieved Sublime experience in Gunnery by leaving my pirate to booch the puzzle on the navy everyday for a few months. Works for Gunning, Sails and Dnav, but not for any other puzzles unless you're a Greenie and achieving Learning at each DR.

    Retired with no intention of returning. Don't remember me because you won't see me often.

    I think booching increases it more slowly because I remember leaving puzzles on overnight long long ago to increase all my stats to weighty but it took a long time

    Because I didn't want to just post the times, I wanted to post what increases the exp and what do not and not all puzzles have the same requirements.

    I assume you mean booching the puzzle board? You can be idle at sailing, patching (after reaching 2nd star level), gunning, dnav,bnav,poker,distilling, SW and Forage. Some of these puzzles will booch itself after a while and you will still gain exp.

    Edit to avoid double post:

    You did it in the navy I assume? Was it from Novice to Weighty or Solid to Weighty? It was probably because the ship kept porting. I still don't know why it does, but somehow leaving the puzzle (or hitting port) between two experience levels will increse the time. I will add the list when I know more about it
