Discussion - 2014 Master and Apprentice system
http://forum.vc.igg.com/viewthread.php?tid=57082


-----------------------------------------------------------
PLEASE READ THE BELOW QUOTE
This is a quote from player Clarys;

It's always bothered me that the system does seem to work for some people, at least some of the time. They are either in the know of how to make it work (and keeping it secret) or, as I assumed, it is how they level their apprentices that makes the difference. After many failed apprenticeships I tried a new strategy based on this assumption and it worked. Unfortunately it won't help with existing advanced level apprentices, but should solve the problem with new character apprentices.

The method is very simple. You must ensure the apprentice meets all the requirements for the first reward BEFORE they meet ANY of the requirements for the second reward. Thus, the apprentice must have completed quest 80 "Help" from the story line AND have 200k LB AND 140k SB points BEFORE completing quest 90 "The Renovation of the Ships Figurehead", OR achieving 240k LB points, OR 150k SB points.

Because most people follow the story line rigidly to level fast, they actually sabotage their apprenticeships. They will complete the figurehead quest long before their LB and SB points are high enough to qualify for the first reward.

In order to meet these requirements the apprentice must break off the story line on completion of quest 89 and achieve level 120 by other means. They can then do the Knight's Vigil quests for the free 120 gear. With little or no pimping this gear will give the required LB an SB points to qualify for the first reward. The apprentice must, of course, re-log twice, once maxed for land, and once for sea, for the system to recognize their highest score values.

-----------------------------------------------------------
How to become an Apprentice;

If you are beginning player (under 120 profession)
1) take quest to find a "master"  at npc "Coaching quest guide" in Athens Dock (25, -37)




2) open Master and Apprentice interface by clicking icon at top left of screen on top of the compass (says "master")

3) Select a name from the list  check all pages by clicking "next page" button or "previous" button

4) highlight the name you want and click the "look for master" button
The person you applied to will receive an application notice they can accept or deny.
( I do not know it this will work when the person is off line or not)

You can have up to 5 Masters

5) After a Master has accepted you, Turn quest in at the  "Coaching quest guide" in Athens Dock (25, -37)
Reward:
1 - Compressed provision box
10,000 Vocation points


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To get Master and apprentice points:
You must meet all requirements for your first award AND meet none for your second ( see quote at top of page).

Apprentices;
You are awarded  Land, Sea, and card Points at the end of each Stage of the New Player Quest line

follow this guide; but stop where indicated in the quote at the top of the page.
2014 - New/ Beginning Player Start and Quests Guide
http://forum.vc.igg.com/viewthread.php?tid=56409&extra=page%3D1
(there are actually 177 steps/quests in this quest line)

Stage 1 ; Complete the main line quest; "Help the Islandi merchant alliance"  and get to level 120;'    200,000 Land points,1400,00 Sea Points and 20 Card Points (1 comment points)
(this may be quest #80?? no such name in our quest line)

Stage 2 : Complete the main line quest; "Renovation of ships figurehead (continued)" ; 240,000 Land points,150,000 Sea Points and 50 Card Points (5 comment points)
( #89 in quest line)

Stage 3: Complete the main line Quest; "Ask for Help";  300,000 Land points,180,000 Sea Points and 200 Card Points (10 comment points)
( #97 in quest line)

**The help in the interface says you graduate and automatically become a master at lvl 150.
You will not be able to become an apprentice once you are over level 120.


How to be on the Master List:

Be 120 + Profession level. (yes you graduate at 150, but I was able to accept a level 123 as a master!)  ** this may have changed as the list now only shows lvl 150 and above in ver. 0.118.. 9/24/15
Click the "broadcast recruitment" button at the bottom of the interface under the list of names.
** If you have Ascii characters in your name or a space (Alt + 255) your name will not be put on the list.


Masters
The interface does not say when you are rewarded... I would assume at the same time as the Apprentices.but this is just a guess for now... if you know please post.




The Chat interface:


You can talk individually or to all your Masters at one time, by choosing their name or choosing "all players" from the pull down arrow on the left of the interface chat screen.
You can hide the list of names and still use the chat screen by clicking the long brown vertical bar to the right of the chat screen.

Chat is a little buggy.  You may only see what the other person typed and not what you typed.   If this happens select "all players" then select the persons name again.   You will see your typing from then on.
