If this is your first time here and you aren't already at endgame Player Owned Ports, head straight to sections 21-28 on page 3 for step-by-step Arc through Shield region guides that will guide you on the most efficient Ports gameplay for the next 6+ months (thinking is not required - just follow it word for word).

For everyone else, use the Table of Contents (there's 180+ sections - each section with multiple subsections). If you don't feel like searching Kags V5 or can't find the info/guide you need, feel free to ask questions.

===== Section 8: Completionist Cape Tips =====
=== Completionist Cape Requirements ===
- Collecting all scroll pieces for the Reefwalker's Cape.
- Complete 1 of the 4 possible trio storylines (Quin, Hyu-Ji, Eastern Curiosities, or Guardians of the World). Trimmed Completionist is all 4 trio storylines.
See Section 32: Requirements & Rewards 2: Trio Storylines for details.


=== Tips ===
1. Send out as many adventurers as possible that you do NOT need on voyages. Do NOT check their voyages, leave them their forever until you get your trio voyage. This works even better if you send out duo adventurers you do NOT need on voyages.
2. Build 1 icon of each of the 3 adventurers that you do need.
3. Build Ostentatious Bar in the Shield region (Luxurious Bar in Pincers region).
4. Do every random event (Barmaid, Seasinger Umi, Marketeer) you get for chance at adventurer reroll. You may get a max of 1 random event per Runescape "day".
See Section 16: Random Events 1: Introduction for details.

5. Do Motherlode Maw (Dragonkin) daily for chance at Player-Owned-Ports enhancers.
6. Exchange 10 Crystal motherlode shards daily with Wythien for chance at Player-Owned-Ports enhancers.
7. Exchange unfocused reward enhancers with Wythien for Player-Owned-Ports enhancers.

The highest chance of getting trio voyage at reset/adventurer reroll can be achieved with 7 adventurers stuck on ships (3 duo voyages and 1 single voyage). In this case, the chance of trio is (6/8)*(4/6) = 24/48 = 1/2 (50% chance of trio voyage at reset).
See Section 36: Adventurer Icon Mechanics for details.


The final (3rd) trio story voyage for Guardians of the World (Exile/Memory/Tengu) also requires that you have 6,000,000 distance and unlocked the island Exile's Point (Kharidian Exile crew).
