Im super active with 0/10 and ive found 35 items.... ever.... In almost 1800 days I think my finder is broke, but it really doesn't bother me. I wouldnt spend 1 merit on it, never have. Its all preference and how you plan on playing the game.

It's not worth it. The finds are mostly garbage. And i've still YET to find something worth money. And I have 10/10 awareness.

Since nobody can read my profile. No I do not want to join your faction nor do I plan to in the future. Your just wasting both of our time.

I have always found it hard to find items in the city..How is it done?
Do we just keep on clicking on City multiple times or do we have to Click on City>Bits n Bobs/Sweet Shop etc etc. ??

So I was thinking if I were to reset my merits and set awareness to 10/10 ..
Would it be worth it in the long run?.. Or will it make no difference at all?
Those who have 10/10 Awareness whats your best find ..

My current awareness is at 3/10 and it looks like im in drought of finding items, maybe find a little thing once in a month or so ..

What are your opinions guys?:)





i RESET all my merits and i had 8/10 awareness ,i currently have 0/10 awareness now and im finding the same amount of items as i did before i reset my merits ,im thinking until i get an awareness merit(i wont) i will stay 8/10 in the system some how until i trigger something by upgrading awareness then im guessing ill be 1/10 awareness and ill find less items ...

I know you are all gonna be like "yeah right,bullshit etc" But i have been mailing friends about this for the last 3 weeks and im 100% possitive this is whats happening to my account

EDIT: I went back through my events to as far as i could go and these are some items i have found with 0/10 awareness after i reset my awareness from 8/10

10/05/13
5:58:14 PM You found the item Pen Knife while walking around the city!

09/05/13
2:03:43 PM You found the item Benelli M1 Tactical while walking around the city!

06/05/13
12:13:12 AM You found the item Casino Pass while walking around the city!

04/05/13
10:02:36 PM You found the item Knuckle Dusters while walking around the city!

04/05/13
4:07:50 PM You found the item Gold Watch while walking around the city!

On 10/10 I've found a parachute, a senet board, five scripts and two SEDs along with lots of other garbage.
I would say it was worth it.


Awareness HAVE NOTHING TO DO with the kind of items you found...


Indirectly, it does actually. It increases the number of items you find therefore you have a better chance of finding something good.


Yes. This is the point which most people who dont like awareness fail to understand.
The more items you find the more chance you have of finding something good. Awareness helps a lot with city finds if you are active in this game for hours everyday.

I have 10/10 Awareness since pretty much starting torn -

My advice is if you want the merits and medals for finding items walking around the city then go ahead, if your looking to find items that you think may be worth something for you to make money then i advise you to not. It is a total waste, I've found just about 140 items and only 2 of them were good (Senet Board + Dumbells) I mean honestly I know people that have their awareness on either nothing or 3,4,5,6,7 but not maxed out on 10 and they have found way more than me I know someone also who has found an RPG, all stat enhancers, their merits are not maxed out and they are only 200 days playing the game Findings items that are worth something is pure luck...And I advise you not to count on it as a source of money

Honestly I cannot understand the hype behind awareness, if you are active enough you will find plenty of items in the city without it. I believe there is only three merits for it anyway (open to corrections)

I'm assuming this has already been said also; awareness merits only increase your ability to find items, it doesn't really increase the likelihood of those items being good.

i have 10/10 aware and the +10% education plus all history classes to find artifacts... ive found around 24-25 stat enhancers and tons of artifacts a bunch of casino passes, business class tickets prolly 8-10bils worth of stuff and yes a very large number of crappy ones... my opinion is if u play this game 4+ hours a day 10/10 aware is worth its weight in gold less time per day its wasted merits... it helps u find items... it doesnt halp u find great ones it just increases ur odds of finding good ones... i have 770 somthing total finds and yes most was crap... but alot wasnt... luck plays a big part... artifact classes plays a good part in helping fill in decent items tho...

I've had my awareness at 10/10 for a long time now and have found 526 items. Of those items the majority of them are crap. I've found around 15 stat enhancers and a good handful of artifacts and other "expensive" things, but if you are thinking to increase your awareness to 10/10 as a way of making extra money then you'll be in for a disappointment. To find items consistently you have to be super active everyday and this doesn't guarantee you'll find anything worthwhile. It's all a matter of luck.

Earlier today:

11/05/13
9:03 PM You found a wallet with $1,716 in it while walking around the city!

I told my friend that in this game, a million dollars is kind of like 1 real world dollar just to give him an idea of what the system is like. Using that scale, I just found the equivalent of less than 1/5th of a penny.

Since leaving a Fireworks stand my number of finds definitely went down. 7/10 and have a city find minded play style. So I still get finds but was definitely better before.

I do 7/10 on all my merits because the gains drop steeply but I still say awareness is worth while if you log in every hour that you can.

I found a Business Class Ticket a couple of weeks ago.

Anyone who thinks that Awareness makes you find better items needs to spend a few merits on Reading Comprehension.

No sig required.

i've got my awareness at 5/10 and I found a few stat enhancers here and there , few museum artefax too but lots of junk that i sold cheap .

i've reseted my merits because I had 10/10 education and i've almost finished all of them now .

before the reset I think i had 6 ... but I don't think it's worth it since every find is random .

invest only a few merits in awareness , put the rest in life , crits and whatever gives you a clear advantage

Before the reset possibility, I had 10/10. That I quickly decided to abandon this when the opportunity was offered, should tell you if I found it useful.

NO.

Perhaps if I had done brainless city clicking without any purpose for hours and hours cumulatively, it would have made a difference. But as I do have a life, this is not what I would choose to do.

I have found one (1) stat enhancer during my career as 10/10 and a few coins. And some junk.
