Ironically, after about 8 weeks of doing both types of quests, my capital has Inquisitive Populace but not Block and Tackle. My second city, after about 4 weeks, got both on the same day...same level tavern as my capital. My newer cities have only been doing quests for a couple weeks (same tavern level), and no discoveries. So, in my experience, Inquisitive Populace was the easier of the two to get.

Block and tackle will be gained from trade type quests.
Remember, chances of getting the discoveries are randomized.  I was one of the last people to get the first discovery when they first came out, sans everyday newbies.

I finally got Block and Tackle in my capital today after, yes, a trade quest. Only took 9 weeks. Wink

 Nice guide - thank you!   Do I understand correctly there are only the 2 discoveries available from the quests?  When a player has both discoveries, is there any value in doing more quests?Question

Depends on whether the quest reward is anything you want, and if it's asking for something you don't want.  Some of the quests can be quite lucrative, others ... not so much.

Rymal,

Yes, currently there are only the 2 Discoveries that you can get from Tavern quests. As Rill said, the only reason to do quests after that is if the quest offers something you want in return for something you have extra of. For example, exchanging basic resources you have plenty of or sending out scouts in return for advanced goods that you could use.

The 2 discoveries 'Inquisitive populace' and 'Blok and Tackle' are really only worth getting when the city is small.

For a city with level 20 resource fields the extra you can gain collecting is less than 1%, and likewise a city that have the consulate up to 20 (15 squares distance) do not get much advantage by adding 2 squares more.

So pray you get them early, when they are valuable enough to help you grow.

Also remember that collecting make you vulnerable, if you rely on collecting to feed your city then an attacking army can pretty much vipe you out just by blocading your caravans.

best regards
