Double Fanucci: Face Cards

Post by MacCentris » Sun Oct 31, 2010 8:12 pm

Hey guys! I'm already questing for face cards!!!!

My character #2 http://legendsofzork.com/heroes/540695-lucille-ball has now found LIGHT! while exploring in the Gray Mountains about 5 APs after level 42 +3! A level 45 Hellhound was the fight that dropped it (if enemies have anything to do with it, but I doubt it) here is the screenshot: http://zork.wikia.com/wiki/File:Light_card.png

My best character at level 43 does not have any face cards nor any of my other characters. So far this is what I have found about Fanucci cards:

Each characters seems to have their own pattern about how cards are dropped.
Some cards are dropped based on character's level.
Not 2 characters have the same attributes nor the same fanucci cards, even when you attempt to do things the same way!

I wouldn't want to be full of hot air but this is what I found, based on my characters alone:

Original cards, these might be based on level or quest pattern too and it's incomplete:

Tops are commonly found in the White Cliffs Beach, Flathead Mountains
Time are commonly found in the Dark Forest, The White Cliffs, the White Cliffs Beach, Forest of Youth and Fenshire
Lamps are commonly found in the Flathead Mountains, Forest of Youth, Fields of Frotzen
Fromps are commonly found in The White Cliffs, Forest of Youth
Mazes are commonly found in the Tidal Flats
Plungers are commonly found in the Dark Forest
Faces are commonly found in the Dark Forest, The White Cliffs, The Jungles of Miznia
Ears are commonly found in the White Cliffs Beach, Forest of Youth
Inkblots are commonly found in the Frigid River Valley, Forest of Youth
Zurfs are commonly found in the White Cliffs Beach
Bugs are commonly found in the Forest of Youth
Books are commonly found in the The White Cliffs

For face cards (Jolt forum based):

Lobster are commonly found in the Discipline Beach
Light are commonly found in the Grey Mountains
Time are commonly found in the Forest of Youth
Beauty are commonly found in Fenshire and Forest of Youth

Face cards that do not depend on other Face cards to appear:

Time, Rose, Lobster and Light

More often than not, Face cards begin dropping at level 42 and up. Thus one can expect to see one as early as level 40, and if you have at least one Infinity card your chances will be higher.

Taken from this post this information might be valuable and accurate. Level 42 confirmed Face Cards have been reported as found by some players as early as Level 40 (but its very rare so don't count on it):

I am the happy owner of the TIME face card! My second face card, she seems to be the lucky one and I'm not sure if the Kid has something to do with her extra streak of luck. She's the only one with the Kid so it could be true, after all.

I found it at the Forest of Youth at level 43 +3 and a Monkey Grinder was the battle that got it for me.

Screenshot again, here: http://zork.wikia.com/wiki/File:Time_Face_Card.png
And here she is again: http://legendsofzork.com/heroes/540695-lucille-ball

Apologies for not explaining. IWP and FWP stand for "Initial Win Probability" and "Final Win Probability" measured by the skills calculator in the online game "Legends of Zork"

I hope that helps! :)

Well now that the game is closing, they decided to reveal the true values of face cards. By the way, Jester and Grue were unreleased all along, they were going to be introduced in a quest that never took place.
