Same!

Haha; The system is fairly minor, but robustly intrusive? These tips will pop-up in players' inventory doing other things and make everything feel more vibrant/alive for it.

Especially new players, given the outdoor mission sections in the starting zones where all those enemies will be eligible to drop the Tour Guide tips. They'll be made aware right away of several systems that will help orient them if they do the whole zone and unlock the Long-Range Teleporter.

So the system naturally introduces new players to:
-Tips and tip missions
-Exploration badges and badges as a system
-Accolade badges and powers with the Long-Range Teleporter

-Reward merits from the exploration accolade
-Minor tidbits of the world's lore that rewards them digging in

 

Anything that suggests exploring the outside world is a win in my book! thank you for all the hard work!!! 😄

How about those of us who have BADGE HUNTER characters who want "Tipped Off",  but already have ALL of the exploration badges in ALL of the zones?

TinkerBell, super reflexes / martial arts tanker & badge hunter

Pulva Rising / Vapo Rising / Cauto Rising, fire/ss brutes & fire farmers

Green Granny / Grand Aid, empathy/psi defenders

Soopa Oompa Loompa, inv/ss tanker

formerly on Champion, Triumph, Victory

Tipped Off was a badge that existed before Tour Guide, it was given for receiving a tip drop; The change added Tour Guide tips to triggering the badge as well.

I would guess your badge hunter already has Tipped Off; If not, any normal alignment tip drop should trigger the badge for them.

Shouldn't you already have "Tipped Off" from alignment mission tips?

MY MISTAKE :) I thought this was a new badge

Tour Guide Missions

Issue 27, Page 2 introduces a brand new type of mission: Tour Guide Missions. These are special tip missions which drop when street sweeping in most zones, and will direct you to any exploration badges that you haven't yet earned in that zone. This is especially helpful for unlocking Long Range Teleporter destinations without needing to rely on VidiotMaps.

 

Detailed Info

  • Enemies in most zones now have a small chance to drop a Tour Guide Mission Tip
    • The tips will only drop when street sweeping, by defeating enemies out on the streets (critters spawned through other means will not count)
    • The tips will drop regardless of your level - grey conned mobs will still drop tips - however, the tip drop rate increases based on the rank of the enemy you're fighting (ie: bosses are more likely to drop tips)
    • Tour Guide Missions are classed as Tips, and will show up in the Tips tab of the Contacts window
    • You can only hold one tip per zone at a time, but can carry a total of three
  • Investigating this tip will direct you to one of the exploration badges in that zone
    • Once accepted, these missions cannot be abandoned, autocompleted, or team completed - you must visit the badge location, which will auto-complete the mission
    • If you earn the exploration badge for a specific tip before investigating it, it will point you towards a different exploration badge in that zone
    • If you earn the exploration accolade before investigating the tip, you will only be able to dismiss it
  • They do not grant any additional rewards beyond the badge
  • All zones which can be unlocked in the Long Range Teleporter have Tour Guide Missions set up (apart from Pocket D and Kallisti Wharf), which is a total of 288 missions!

 

Step 1: Go. Hunt. Kill Skuls.
