The +20% bonus does not apply to specialists (cotters, miners, herbalists, skinners).  Speed is determined differently for specialists than it is for caravans.  Speed of harvest for specialists is determined by what is being harvested.  Where caravans it's the speed of the van that determines the speed of harvest.

Yeah agreed.  

A thought ........ does the +20 bonus apply to other harvesting units?  I suspect not but don't know for sure!

The description mentions "your trade caravans" but the bold text at the bottom just mentions "harvesting resources" .....  It would be a far more useful bonus if it also applied to skinners, miners etc  [ Devs are you reading this Wink ]  That way people may push for to get the Discovery.

But my view on the usefulness of the +2 sq increase in diplomatic detection range remains the same ..... not really worth the effort!

I've not really put much effort into doing Quests. My cities that did do Quests them have both discoveries.

I'm not really sure why people put so much effort into the Inquisitive Populace discovery when all it really gives is +2sq on detection range of incoming diplos.  

When you work out how fast diplo units travel you soon realise that you only actually get roughly 2-3 minutes advantage in detecting incoming units and even then it's only an advantage if you are actually logged on when the attack arrives!

The Block and Tackle discovery which gives a +20% increase in loading speed when harvesting goods is of far more practical use.

Just upgrade your tavern, wait a few days or even weeks doing diplo quests that don't kill scouts, get the discovery and replace the tavern with whatever you want.


I have 6 citys. All my citys have Block and Tackle, but only 4 out of 6 have Inquisitive Populance. Strangly, my second biggest citys is one of the ones that does not have Inquisitive Populance. My taverns vary in level. So I don't think Tavaern level effects chance to get the discoverys. As, my level 20 tavern has not got all the discoverys, while my other 2 level 20, and my lover level tavens, do have all of the discoverys.

I dont want to show off or anything but just provide some informations:

I got both discoveries after 8 days of quest (generally 8 quest a day, though i failed some)

I got both discoveries on diplomatic quest, but the tackle one was from the second step of a diplomatic quest (which was basically a trade quest)

My tavern is only lvl 2 (as i was doing quest morning and evening i did not need more new quests)

I dont know if I should keep doing quests ^^
