    There's like a 3-5 minute time limit from what I've seen. I go this message whenever I did the new mag one, as I could get that one done and be back in like 3 minutes.

    You'll notice if you cancel a quest, you have to similarly wait to get another one.

    The delay for me only seems to be about 2 mins. No daily limit though.

    Yeah, I was just guessing how long it takes me to get from brit docks to mag docks and back, and was guessing around 3 minutes.

    Could be less.

    well just did my 25th quest.
    went from Skara to Vesper.
    boated across the water to the mainland then ran all the way to Vesper.
    shut down 4 ambushes.
    over 80k in gold and my first guild sign as my reward.

    neat!

    Titles are different then the tiers. Each tier adds a line item to the order.

    You start at Tier 1 with just one item. Tier 2 starts after 40 orders. Tier 3 starts after 60 orders. Tier 4 starts after 80 orders. Tier 5 starts after 100 orders.

    The one thing I've seen for sure is you spent more gold on the 5 liners, and you get more boards and ingots etc.
    Higher rate for signs and book, I haven't seen it and I'm just sort of Magnate, bout 10 more.
    The 5 liners seem to even out in price, some are all raw meat and tinker items. But some of them are heavy on leather and metal armor and can be expensive for ingots boards or leather, no matter how many it is. I want to collect a full set of Guild signs and Virtue Town books.
    I will admit Tycoon is kinda funny over my head

    Like Obeeee, I haven't experienced a higher drop rate, but its possible that the increased chance is so slight we'd never notice.
