Edit(KP) Extra Information


Hey folks, I was out with strep throat last week so unfortunately wasn't able to keep up with the forums.

Reading through, I see that there's a lot of concern about Skunkupine spawn rates.

Just want to clarify that we did not change the Skunkupine spawn rate at all for this questline, and in fact haven't changed it in over a year. If you're still struggling, Skunkupines drop off Corn, Wheat, Tomatoes, Sugar Cane, some flowers, and Aspen Trees, all at the same rate.

Lovecupines have a slightly higher (1%) chance to drop than Skunkupines off last year's Valentine items.

Best of luck everyone :)

How do I attract them? I've been busy making hot sauce for the dark caves adventure, and it takes a LONG time for one to show up so I can get the tail! I've tried harvesting wheat, sugar cane & tomatoes. I've tended to my flowers. If one pops up, I'm lucky! Help? :-)

Good question. I thought this week's quest was meant to be more accessible for newbies.
But $500,000 coins is awlful lot given that they need coins to expand n purchase bldgs etc. etc.

Ditto.

As to the $$$; $$$ is probably the easiest part. You just have to make choices as to expansions, buildings or quests.

At the end youll get a pet skunkupine and from what the staff hinted at during the week it will be a cute and more reliable source of rat tails.

No ones gotten to the end yet so no clue, except for Maguar's post stating a source for rat tails.

If you have any pink items in storage( Fluttermush rings, plants, flowers, chickens , cows, etc, Spire of Love) bring these out. These will attract the pink skunkupines.

I get better results from wheat, too. Corn doesn't seem to work very good for me in attracting skunkupines. I have a bunch of flutter mush, 1 pink sheep and 1 pink pig but have only gotten 1 from them so far.

Somehow I haven't attracted a single skunkpine since this quest started! Nothing from wheat, white flowers, pink animals, tomatoes. I have a large batch of sugar cane up for collection soon, hopefully I'll get something.

I needed rat tails before the upgrade at noon, since 4 am I have been doing everything that would produce multiple skunkupines,( for rat tails)Planted numerous corn , wheat and sugar, and harvested numerous times, did all my flowers. Under normal circumstances, which you change according to your payrol. I got 1 skunkupine. team lava needs to not change everything just so they can offer a gem sale!! Before I would have been frustrated by the over abundance of these creatures. but now with the disappearance they want me to buy gems? Stop being so greedy team lava... I buy gems but not by being tricked . Just come out and charge for this new adventure. And stop tweeking things to cheat loyal players!!!

Players have brought this up before, but Mods have insisted that they don't modify the chances of the appearance of monsters, rare drops, etc, for the new updates. At least be thankful it's not a timed update like the holiday buildings and stuff.

Come on TL. 35 wheat - one skunkpine and then it didn't even drop a rats tail

newzealander
01-16-14, 08:30 PM
20 wheat, 10 sugar, 15 corn, and 24 flowers watered. 3 rats tails. This is going to take a huge amount of energy; I'm putting all other projects on hold for now because at this rate it's going to be a long one, but at least it's not timed, so it's do-able!

Petasos
01-16-14, 08:48 PM
60 corn, 25 flowers of different colors, not one skunkupine. I have 99 tails, they were regular in my kingdom prior to the patch, now not one in sight. Without a doubt the spawn rate has changed. And I agree with the previous poster, it is to get us to skip the goal and spend gems.

if I understand you correctly, the problem could be that you are already maxed out on tails. If you already have 99, you won't be able to collect any more until you spend some as 99 is the max you can hold. Perhaps make some hot sauce?

I have been harvesting corn and flowers and valentine animals for 12 hours and I've only gotten 2 skunkupines. I usually get a lot more than this.

Queenzod
01-16-14, 09:55 PM
No one is forcing anyone to use gems. This isn't a time sensitive goal. You can take your time. If you get bothered by how long it's taking, you're welcome to use gems. Eventually you're going to get all the little critters you need. Personally, I'm planting and harvesting corn I don't need. I've made as many grits as I can without decimating my bacon stocks. This isn't a race. You can work on this until next new year if you like. I don't get what all the pilikia is about.

Hi Folks!

Just wanted to report that I seem to be doing good with getting skunkupines to appear by collecting from all flowers, and from harvesting corn. Actually, they seem to be appearing more than usual....or maybe it seems that way.

Good Luck to Everyone! Have fun! :cool:

I like this sort of quest because I can just let it roll along with just a bit of planting, planning and luck. But .... if Ivy is having a pet then Thurston should have a horse. Not any old horse but a HORSE with gold trimmed harness and shoes made of a really rare mineral.

Do the goals show up in Kingdom Goals as per other quests?

I had the Royal Proclamation screen pop up, but then nothing then about what to do? Are there any special requirements to get things started?

Cheers!

JayUK69
01-17-14, 03:40 AM
Love the fact it drops rat tails. I don't get many of these as I'm usually maxed out on petals, corn, wheat etc... So don't do anything which attracts them. I'm not having many show up at the moment, but as it's not a timed quest it doesn't matter.

I do not care about tails, I want 20 Skunkupines to complete the first part of the quest and now they are not showing up. Well to be fair I have gotten a couple, just not what I am used too. Maybe I am imagining the whole thing.

I've caught 6 skunkupines since the beginning of this quest. That's not bad. But non of them dropped a rat tail. NONE. They are supposed to have a 50% chance of dropping a tail. Something wrong with my maths?

When was the last time I had so much trouble with energy shortage? Can't even do energy trades, I'm out of meat and strawberries. All the waiting for visiting Thurston is trying my patience but at least I can use the time to get everything ready and save up some energy.

Liloze
01-17-14, 08:50 AM
Until now I only saw two skunkupines!
I am depleting my energy on flowers and crops to avail, and did anyone get EGGS yes EGGS fron the skunkupine, I am not getting tails, And NO I do not have 99 tails since I am also trying to up grade the Fairies' building,sending them on the Dark caves Adventure!

Anyway since it is not a time Goal, I will take my time!
I do not have the Valentine edition which makes the skunkupine chances of availability Higher to those who's got it, totally unjust and unfair towards those who don't !

MiniLaura
01-17-14, 08:58 AM

You must be on the fortune about the skunkupine that laid the golden egg. They will stop dropping eggs once you get a golden one.

Same here! TL denies changing anything, but I kept a count before starting the skunkupine quest, and yes they desappear, I am keeping count of the Fang beast and Troll also,just to see the when another goal starts, and we need these do, how many times they will appear or rather disappear once the goal is started! Now Every other cow pig or chicken I collect from A fangbeast is there, every two buildings sometimes every other building the troll is there, also cocoa, i will wait and see when we need them for a new goal.

I will see if there are any level requirements (or past goals that need to completed) before you get this goal.

My quest arrived 14 hours after this thread was posted and I had forced closed, turned off the device and had been playing actively during that time.

I am in the UK and got the quest a couple of hours after the day reset at 10am here. I'm just glad it is not a timed quest as I get those later too.

My skunkupines are still showing up like they were before the update. I just think people pay attention more when they need them. I've always gotten more fangbreasts then anything else.
But I did notice that once I had the fairy quest my jeweler building stopped dropping jewels, and it's still not.

Will skunkupines appear when harvesting corn even if you are maxed? I am maxed on corn so have been going for wheat and sugar. They take longer to grow but I find it easier to keep those below max and sugar and flour are more useful to me.

Yes they still show up, although it seems at a lower rate. I'm maxed out on corn, but getting on average one skunkupine per 25 corn. I tend flowers too and I'm maxed out on all petals, but they still show up.

Thurston has already got a pet horse though - the alicorn! If you remember we went on the quest for the alicorn parts initially to get Thurston a fine rare steed and as a result my alicorn now lives outside Thurstons fort at all times

Come on 42 wheat in one go and not a single Skunkupine. And you expect us to believe that drop rates aren't being adjusted. I'm not going to spend any gems on this but hey this is simply ridiculous. You make us waste time and energy for no result - why.

Just followed that up with 18 corn. That now makes 60 crops in two goes and not a single Skunkupine.

I've also watered maybe 60 flowers in lots of 6 without a single Skunkupine. This has simply become a joke. Why give us a quest and then make it virtually impossible to complete it.

I also not that at least the last 6 visits to Ivy's hut haven't produced a single rats tail

For some reason I had gotten To the part of goal where u pay 500, then go to thurs tons then I signed off when I went back on I was back to pay 500, so I had to pay twice. That wasn't cool but I'm still looking forward to pet skunkupine.

No, I've been collecting milk and eggs as well and keep on having to kill fang beasts.

It's a chance thing, sometimes you just get unlucky. When this quest first came online yesterday I was having decent luck with collecting from pink items for lovecupines. Ever since this morning I haven't seen a single lovecupine, even though I continue to collect from pink items. I got two skunkupines in a row collecting from sugar cane once and none after a whole bunch of corn. It's just the luck of the draw.

rosewaterlily
01-17-14, 08:35 PM
I got a grand total of three skunkpines so far, none today, despite whole wheat and sugar cane fields being harvested. Those fangbeasts and trolls are still popping up reguarly though when I do my other collections though, sheesh. I used to get skunkpines frequently when I collected from white flowers, now nothing.

craterlake
01-17-14, 09:15 PM
Now just picked 48 Sugar cane. Directly after killing a Fang beast. 48 cane no Skunkupine. That's now over 100 crops - wheat, corn and cane without a single Skunkupine. In the past 24 hours heaps of fang beasts but no Skunkupine. Something is definitely wrong.

01-17-14, 09:52 PM
Now that I have gotten 20 for the quest, my skunkupines are showing up at about once every five corn/wheat. Before that I used the full 40 of energy several times without getting any. I know they say the rates aren't changed, but it does seem to be more than coincidence.

zuma022
01-17-14, 10:57 PM
No skunkupines for me either, but I admit I kinda enjoy harvesting all plots without being interrupted. I also need troll essence, they still show up but also not as often as they used to. I can spend 60+ energy in the morning (2 schools and adventure) and usually only get fangbeasts when I tend the animals.
It's kind of nice.

I've had the best luck with watering flowers. I got 4 just now from just watering 20 plants or so which is a heck of a lot quicker than planting and harvesting wheat. I still had a heap of flowers out from previous quests thankfully and they renew quickly.

Serendipity1110
01-18-14, 02:16 AM
I remember only a few weeks ago when I wasn't able to harvest anything in peace without a skunkupine showing up with every second chop. Ever since I HAVE to collect rat tails or slay them for this challenge, they are basically extinct. I am harvesting crops, collecting from flowers and chopping down trees like a maniac - everything that used to instantly trigger skunkupines - , now maybe I get one a day, and only half of them drop rat tails at most. This is getting increasingly frustrating :-(

So now that I've finished that part of the goal killing skunkupines, they're popping up like crazy. One as soon as I tapped a pink chicken got a lovekupine, went to harvest sugar cane and got one on the first tap. Harvested 2 more and was full so went to wheat and after 2nd tap there's another. Rates may not be adjusted during goals but there's something coded in to drop the frequency. So I had 3 within 6 taps.

Just tapped 5 more sugar cane and got 2 more skunkupines.

No one is forcing anyone to use gems. This isn't a time sensitive goal. You can take your time. If you get bothered by how long it's taking, you're welcome to use gems. Eventually you're going to get all the little critters you need. Personally, I'm planting and harvesting corn I don't need. I've made as many grits as I can without decimating my bacon stocks. This isn't a race. You can work on this until next new year if you like. I don't get what all the pilikia is about.

Agreed... I actually like goals that are not time sensitive and that give me something to work towards, that take time to do.

I get that all the time feast or famine and not related to when there is a goal or not, while I have been harvesting corn and plants for this goal I have been getting the feast and famine drops .....It is the same as tossing a coin I tossed 1 just now and got 3 heads in a row 1 tail then 2 more heads The odds of heads/tails is 50% but you are not going to get an even distribution

It took me a day and a half to get the skunkupines and I got plenty of tails. Does help when you have the relevant shard because something I get two tails. I am now visiting Thurston. Enjoying this quest line because while it is not necessarily hard, it is time consuming. And unless you spend gems on it, it will take quite a few days. I refuse to skip parts and don't mind that my 3rd visit to Thurston won't be until tomorrow morning.

A cutie! I look forward to having him in amongst my crop fields. This a great quest, because it's not timed, so it's ok that some things are a little challenging. It took me almost 2 days to get the Skunkupines, but at least I wasn't worrying that I wouldn't finish in time. The game will get you there in the end; frustrating as it can be!

I have had the friendly skunkupine for a couple days now. The collecting time on mine is 1 hour all I got so far is crops, and the creepy tooth!! This is crazy. All that for crops and the tooth that drops from all 3 (trolls, beasts and skunkupines)
I thought this one was going to help out with the rat tail shortages but not yet.
It is dropping things that are easy to get and doesn't really solve any problem. I have been playing for many months now and I have been really disappointed with this game lately. Why have these things and they don't service a purpose. It's just like the jeweler that doesn't drop jewels. What's the point! ��

The first day I gathered masses of wheat and flower petal and only one skunkupine , yesterday I did the same and got nine in a short time then they were not about. Today I tried 60 wheat and 20 petals without one skunkupine. Now I have switched to growing tomatoes that only take 10 minutes and I have had 4 skunkupine in 8 plants!

I needed rat tails before the upgrade at noon, since 4 am I have been doing everything that would produce multiple skunkupines,( for rat tails)Planted numerous corn , wheat and sugar, and harvested numerous times, did all my flowers. Under normal circumstances, which you change according to your payrol. I got 1 skunkupine. team lava needs to not change everything just so they can offer a gem sale!! Before I would have been frustrated by the over abundance of these creatures. but now with the disappearance they want me to buy gems? Stop being so greedy team lava... I buy gems but not by being tricked . Just come out and charge for this new adventure. And stop tweeking things to cheat loyal players!!!

At least you get a gem sale offer. I have been plating since October and haven't gotten ONE gem sale offer. I have gotten one sale offer for newbies and that's it. I know someone else playing and they have gem sales every other week. I would settle for a gem sale once every month, but for some reason don't seem to get them. I have deleted and reloaded the game about 5 times now and no such luck.

Some of the goals are easier than others and should be challenging and not always easy. I love our new little friend skunkupine and since I'm maxed out on my crops I have not received any gifts from him yet but you never know... I get the same for sir piggy so this is no different. In the meantime, I collect as many eggs and milk to craft trade tickets and try to max out on as many other resources as I can... Then I wait until next Thursday... Hope this game never ends and Koodos to TL for doing a great job.... Wish people would stop complaining and enjoy the game.

Seriously!? I can speak for myself here and that's what I did.
Everyone on here is entitled to their opinion. Just like you are to yours. TL made this quest for a reason. People have been "complaining" about Rat tails and look what "complaining" got. A permanent one. My opinion about it is that since there was a reason for this line. What is the point when out of 20 collects there has only been 1 rat tail drop. We get that TL works hard on these games. All developers do. But we as paying gamers have the right to state how we feel!

Can't agree more. We come from all walks of life, different age n experience.
Some play to kill time, some play for getting relax from work stress, cancer stress etc. etc.
Especially for those players in sick beds (I note there are quite a few)
these extra hurdles can be really annoying.
Wish TL realizes such aspect more n be more compassionate!

Just to counterpoint. What good is a game with no difficulties or challenges? If there is no struggle is there value in the reward? would gold have any value if it were as common and easy to obtain as dirt?

My flowers do not seem to count. I merrily took them out of storage and started collecting (watering), yet got NOTHING. The only one that does seem to "count" is the single NEW Icelandic poppy I bought. Since I HAVE dozens of flower plants in storage I thought I would use them. Even my 20 Icelandic poppies fom storage do not work. It seems I have to buy more?

This is so lame.

Yup. No joy. But I just bought 50 Icelandic poppies, used my alicorn's energies and collected from them and threw them away. Brute force - no fun, but it works. I have coins to burn.

I will collect the wheat in a bit - all will be thrown away because I HAVE 99 wheat, but at this point I really don't care. I have been SOOOO close to tossing this "game" anyway. I had hopes that the story would progress....

Now I have something to do - I get to make/collect 99 of everything again. Or not.

If not maxed out already use your wheat to make flour. It only takes 30 minutes each time.

Burn your coins if you wish and toss in the game if you like.

I must admit I have been known to complain from time to time, however, I have learnt to just slog on through. This is not life or death, it is just a game.

Check your kingdom and make sure you do not have any other monsters hanging around . If another monster is out you will not see any skunkupines show up.

I always make sure to finish any Monster that pop up directly and if I do not have energy I wait to accumulate enough to finish it, so no it is mot any other monster hanging around for 5 days Straight!!!

I have been playing this game for almost 1 year and still no Alicorn :( I have 5 Alicorn horns, but 0 wings. I send out my knights every day for an adventure. Has anyone had more luck getting wings on a certain adventure? It's disheartening seeing all these kingdoms with lots of alicorns and I don't even have one yet :(

Well I have been playing since june 2013 and sending my knights to both The barracks and The Castle on all 4 or 5 kind of adventures / exploring/ etc...No wings of alicorns, or horns or anything at all, My stock has ZERO of any Alicorn part!

i then gave up and bought some.

Now I am waiting for the Ember to finish with the Manticore, and it's the same thing, I already bought two of those, so yeah ...Talk about spending gems!

I had the 20 skunkupines in less than 48 hours by pulling out all my valentines flowers and pink animals and collecting from them as often as possible to trigger pink lovecupines.

Well and those who do not have the Valentine version?! I think this is totally unfair to those who don't have it, since I read many got their Skunkupines by pulling the Valentine plants, flowers and such...SIGH....

I have the Valentine plants & flowers but got most of my skunkupines from collecting wheat. I could collect my entire wheat field which is 34 plots and not get any skunkupines and then at the next collection I might get 2-3. I tried corn but didn't have much luck so went back to just using wheat even though I was maxed out on it.

How is the drop rate of rat tails?

Cool down is only 60 mins, to date have had a variety of flowers and corn etc. not one rats tail. But on the positive side my bad Skunkupines are back to a normal rate and dropping tails.

Hey folks, I was out with strep throat last week so unfortunately wasn't able to keep up with the forums.

Reading through, I see that there's a lot of concern about Skunkupine spawn rates.

Just want to clarify that we did not change the Skunkupine spawn rate at all for this questline, and in fact haven't changed it in over a year. If you're still struggling, Skunkupines drop off Corn, Wheat, Tomatoes, Sugar Cane, some flowers, and Aspen Trees, all at the same rate.

Lovecupines have a slightly higher (1%) chance to drop than Skunkupines off last year's Valentine items.

Best of luck everyone :)

Lovecupines have a slightly higher (1%) chance to drop than Skunkupines off last year's Valentine items.


So, that means that Skunkupines only have a <1% chance of dropping? Or that the Lovecupine percentage is 1 greater than that of a Skunkupine?


Separate issue, it would be great if the 1st post in this thread were edited to include an updated list of drops, right now at the top is says 'Coins, XP, Fur', then lower down, we have 'sugar cane, corn, rat tails, etc'.

So far, no rat tails or fur, but I've gotten corn, tomatoes, and wheat. I would have imagined that the percentage drop for rat tails and fur would be higher than the other items. I mean, seriously, how does this animal drop crops exactly? I would think it would be dropping tails and fur like mad, trying to rid itself of its mutant coloring.

To clarify, if you rolled 100 times, on average you'd end up with 1 more lovecupine than skunkupine.

Nope. I play almost round the clock, if possible.
My game is fine, at least for the fairy quest, got 1 pillar each adventure, statute on first venture.
Got rat tails just at a slightly lower rate, but back to normal once I finished that tail stuff.
Now the beasts pop up in my collection of wheat, mushroom, flowers, even when I cut my aspen!
Total 15 tails so far after finish with that line!
So honestly, I am not buying what Glimmergate said here.
At least my experience and her account don't jive. Not only this one, but all along,
drop rate drops whatever resources are required.
My strategy is to stock up with practically everything except eggs n milk.

I had all my skunkupines turn up in a few days by constantly harvesting wheat only. When it went near the maximum I made flour, it was pretty quick. I have 30 plots and sometimes there would be none turn up when I collected the lot, then the next round I'd get 2 or 3. It's felt about the same as before the quest came along.

Flowers were useless, and other crops didn't work as well as wheat.

Glimmergate is stating what will trigger a Skunkupine to show up, not what Skunkupines drop. Obviously, Skunkupines do not drop flowers and aspen trees. And only the pet skunkupine will drop corn, wheat, tomatoes, and sugar cane.

I played all day today. Tried wheat, tomatoes, sugar cane, flowers (maxed on corn, but tried that yesterday or day before to no avail).... Not one skunkupine. Not one. I'm in no rush, since i am far from the 500,000 coin mark, but i find it hard to believe.
Having said that, i just touch a cow or a chicken and I get a fangbeast no sweat....
Three more skunks to go... I wonder how many more days it will be.
In the mean time, i am making feasts from all the wheat and flour and sugar I have.

AND NO I DO NOT HAVE HANGING BEAST AROUND, like someone suggested, Inkill them directly when they show up, and if I lack the energy I wait until I get the necessary energy to kill it.

I believe cabbage attracts trolls. I got mine mostly from the pink mushroom rings.
The pink ones drop tails, regular one's chance to drop tail may be 1 in 3 according to my experience.
Especially when I was close to meet the required quota.

Only wheat, corn, sugar and tomatoes attract skunkupines. The other crops will draw fangbeasts or trolls. I've always had most luck with wheat and tomatoes, but it usually takes collecting 20+ for one to show up.

The valentine flowers and mushrooms doesn't draw skunkupines any easier or drop rat tails more often than regular items do, in my experience.

Cocoa attracts trolls. Try sugarcane, wheat, tomatoes, corn. I found sugarcane and wheat worked best, you can keep making those into sugar and flour so you don't max out. Watering flowers also worked for me. I made quite a few dyes to use up the petals.

ashanthya
01-23-14, 06:19 AM
Cocoa beans will get you a troll, not a skunkupine! Skunkupines like wheat (like dolla said) and sugar, as well as flowers. So go flower-picking for some petals while you wait for your harvest. I don't think I've ever collected 10 petals in a row without running into one of the critters.

I know that corn sugar wheat and tomatoes attract the Skunkupine, what I was being sarcastic about the whole thing, I am Maxed out on all the said crops, and still have only 7.

The valentine flowers and mushrooms doesn't draw skunkupines any easier or drop rat tails more often than regular items do, in my experience.

As I have understood from plenty of other posts, many said they got theirs from the Valentine Plants, maybe you are as unlucky as me. hopefully your luck would change soon.

So sad to hear about your skunkupine spawn rate. Maybe you can try these tips if it works:
1. Try to use up wheat, corn, petals... Maxed out seem decrease the spawn rate.
2. To avoid the troll and fangbeast, collect coins building, animals together. If the troll/fangbeast appear, ignore them there and continue to collect until you're done with building/animal. Then, defeat the troll/fangbeast before you want to lure the skunkupine with wheat, corn, petals...
3. Don't use up energy to collect only one type. Rotate after 4,5 energy for harvest, try out with watering, and again.
4. Chopping tree also attract skunkupine, so try it out.

I got mine from constantly collecting from corn and flowers, even though totally maxed out on petals and corn. They still appeared about 1 in 20 collections. I only ever get trolls collecting from mushrooms, but get the odd pink skunkupine show up from collecting from the pink mushroom circle. It took me 2 days to get all the skunkupines for this quest, but have had loads pop up since. Even the pet skunkupine has spawned a few when collecting from him.

About 90% of monsters spawned on my game are fang beasts. They constantly show up and drain energy. I have a troll trapped in the corner of my kingdom at the moment, he's been there a couple of days. So I can go about my business without any fang beasts showing up, they are so annoying.

same here, it is annoying indeed, especially when it doesn't give fur as well. lol. I wish my monsters shows up somewhere where it does not hinder my actions,so I can forget about them for a while, alas, they show up - both - always in the most needed of places. sigh!

So sad to hear about your skunkupine spawn rate. Maybe you can try these tips if it works:
1. Try to use up wheat, corn, petals... Maxed out seem decrease the spawn rate.
2. To avoid the troll and fangbeast, collect coins building, animals together. If the troll/fangbeast appear, ignore them there and continue to collect until you're done with building/animal. Then, defeat the troll/fangbeast before you want to lure the skunkupine with wheat, corn, petals...
3. Don't use up energy to collect only one type. Rotate after 4,5 energy for harvest, try out with watering, and again.
4. Chopping tree also attract skunkupine, so try it out.

I got 2 Skunkupine one when I chopped a tree the other while changing from Collecting animals to Corn crops, I did collect from buildings, which of course brought the troll up, so I went to chop tree again, then to crop yet again, which brought tbe second Skunkupine, so today I got 3 counting the tomato one as well.

Thank you for your advice, now I need 7 to move on, hopefully my luck will continue until I finish.

Thanks again, Appreciate it :)

Nope. Got that once too.
The story line seems to say because it's different, it gets attacked by the rest.
That's why we need to ask for ointment to heal it's wounds.

Given what the pet skunk drops, I was rather hoping it would trigger skunkupines.
I just triggered one today collecting tomatoes and corn... Hello double rat's tails!!! ;-)

I am rather fond of my little Pepe le Pew! LOL!

Sometimes when I collect from Mr. Stinky, I get nothing. Air, a few coins. No box telling me I'm full on this or that. Is this normal or a glitch of some kind? I just got him 24 hours ago, and this has happened twice. Maybe he doesn't produce every hour? Anyone else notice this?

Has anyone else had this. I responded a few days ago to say that I've had the same thing a few times. Since that post I've had the same on a number of occasions. Just curious, as no one else has made comment about it except of QZ and I. Cheers

My kingdom has no Skunkupines, seems they went extinct somehow!
Now I cut trees and get Fangbeast! ( I used to get Skunkupines all the time) Crops and flowers are not popping up Skunkupines no matter how many times I water or collect...
The day before yesterday while mining Iron rich rock I got One Skunkupine,( usually I used to get fangbeast instead) nothing since, seems what we used to know as what item triggers what beast is now changed, or there's a glitch soewhere, I mean, no one is having this Skunkupine problems, at this rate and recurrent ! :confused:

Still en route to getting the pet skunkupine but I've been getting loads of skunkupines in my kingdom because of the faerie respite requirements. They pop up when harvesting sugar cane, collecting flowers and chopping trees.

today was mining For Iron got two Skipunkupines, then after a fangbeast, still need two and no not going to pay a single gem for it on the traps, they will show up sooner or later, and TL say they don't drop the rates of anything?! Since the Skukupine pet goal started my rate dropped to One every other day. It is playing lottery now!

I've also had this...but am full on bone & tooth so wnder if the 'full' message doesn't always pop up...?

As for good drops, which someone was asking about, I have gotten up to three things at once. Sometimes a rat tail, wheat & tomato or sometimes one corn & two wheat. Overall, I'm pretty happy with little Skunky!

Ta. Thanks for the response. I am also happy with my little stinky and what he drops. Was just curious about the no drop bit from time to time.

I'm very happy with my little guy, too. Maybe he's just passing gas when nothing else comes out? I have noticed my other animals sort of moving off to one side sometimes. Pepe pee-yew, indeed!

Outhouse, I've had the same thing. 50 coins, and that's it. I think it's just one of his many quirky offerings!

Any flowers, you know the blue/white/purple/orange ones. And yes you will need 5 Aspen trees for 25 chops.

You can collect from any flower except the Valentines flowers from last year. It does not matter if you are full on petals, just collect away!
I believe you need 5 aspen trees to get 25 chops in.

Thanks NZ. Have had a few more since then, however, as previously stated, I am quite happy with what my Mr Stinky drops. Such a cute little critter. Cheers
