There is a company that has a special for it.

Also, the more active you are in game the better your chances.

click city b4 u do any other actions... city/gym, city/crimes and so on... the best way to help find items is no doubt be more active... i do very well logging in every hour and entering a new race... i would also do all the history classes because it allows u to find artifacts instead of all the crappy items... there is also a psy class u can take for an added 10% in awareness...

Be active... I just looked at the OP's stats page and the user activity has almost remained at the same lvl for a year... if you want to find more items, do more in Torn. Logging in and doing a couple of things then going offline will not give you very good results. You must actively play to get the best chance of finding things.

Do not hold your breath, you will turn blue and die before you find anything.

I have the Psych class, I have the History class, I have 5/10 awareness merits, I work for a Candle Company.

It has been a long time, since I have found anything. I click, and click, and click, using various combinations of destinations. When I find something, and if seldom I do, it is crap. I just want the merit for finding crap.

There is another very detailed thread about this topic, look for it.

But the bottom line is luck.

Nope. You should click the City link on the sidebar twice an hour.

Thats a fallacy, it was mentioned once that you have 2 chances every hour to find an item and now everyone says that it is a definite when in actual fact it isn't, you could click it 100 times an hour and find nothing. It is all just luck OP, no advice given here will increase your chances of finding items. There is a running under current of people who think they should be finding stat enhancers and such just because they spent merits on awareness but it doesn't work that way, chances are even if you did find an item it would be a kitchen knife or a baseball bat and then you would be complaining that you find loads of items but none of them are dumbbells or boxing gloves. I am amazing the amount of people on here that have a sense of entitlment and think that they should find items when that was never implied anywhere on the site, if anything it is you could find items but don't hold your breath because it is all just random luck.

I was making sure he knew he had to click the city, since he was asking about things completely unrelated to clicking the city.

So yah, if he didn't know you had to click the city my advice to him most certainly WILL increase his chances of finding items, if he starts clicking the city.

And was your rant directed at me, I see you quoted me, but most of it didn't seem at all related. Nowhere did I say that he'd be guaranteed to find stuff. I said he should click the city.

I dunno. I have 200+ items found but I am very active. I could be wrong but it seems like the finds are not consistent. You will go on a streak of finding something 4 out of 7 days, then nothing for a while. I have a vague theory that the dial gets turned up every now and then when they want to add money to the economy, or maybe there is a pool of items that can be found and it get restocked every so often. Remember the Easter egg event where people would find a bunch or eggs then it would run dry for 4-5 days? I just think there is a mechanical piece to when you are more likely to randomly find items.

lots of good theories, just a few months ago i fully upgraded my awareness and it had been 2 years sense my last city find. i started complaining to staff members and a day later a found a skateboard. so maybe if you complain to the staff enough they'll throw an item your way. but on another note, yesterday i found 3 items about 2 hours apart from each other. i get on to use my nerve so im only on for about 10 minutes at a time. within the past 2 months i have found about 30 items and i find in the last 10 minutes of the hour is the best time to search for items. finding items is complete luck and always random. by clicking city you have a better chance of fiding items, but you should wait a minute or 2 before clicking it again. also you should click city links on your sidebar to mix things up. about 1 out of 15 items is a rare one, and the longer you go without finding an item the better the item will be. it feels like the finds are on a timer maybe. sometimes i log in and will find an item right away, other time i have to wait 2 weeks. so maybe you have 30 minutes to log in from a certain point to get the item, or maybe it will still be there when you log in whenever. none of this is fact, just all my observations.
