There are also Peach Blossom Trees and mum flower bushes ($150) that take 3 hours & 22 hours and require flower clippers (received from deliveries) to harvest (both plants can be harvested twice each then they dissapear)

New bait (2 iron, 2 wool, 2 flax = 2 hours)

Like in the last event Valentine's there seperated missions.

Morgan primrose missions:

The goals for the pet posted by yppahc


I think the times and costs are correct, but if anybody spots a mistake I am sorry. I do not know the cost of skipping in the final goal as I am not there yet but hopefully it is still 10 gems per dumpling!

PET GOALS

1: Chinese New Year
Buy 1 Lunar Workshop (1,500 coins) - builds quickly
Plant 4 peach blossom trees (3hrs maturing time) 150 coins each

Give 18 fortune cookies (27 hrs)
Reward - 160 coins, 1 lantern tree, 32 xp

Crafting Time - 42 hrs if lucky with fishing, otherwise days!
Cost - your sanity! or 60 gems if feeling flush!


3: The Year of the Sheep

Total Time = 230.5 hrs = 9.6 days SO NOT MUCH LEEWAY CONSIDERING THE FISHING DEBACLE!!


Happy Chinese New Year
Build Chinese Dragon 12 hrs
Place Dragon on your farm
Reward -

Minidemon has provided amount of flowers for the last two goals.

I just did a calculation based on the goals requirement.

In order to craft all 15 New Year Flowers, you will need 45 mum flowers and 45 peach blossom. Then for the 12 sheep plushies, you will need 48 wools, 24 mum flowers and 24 peach blossom. Altogether 69 mum flowers and 69 peach blossom. Or 138 clippers for all those flowers.

Waa, I though I've enough materials for the goals. Guess I need to stockpile more again. :(

Another event too soon! The pony is cute, same goes to the dog with sheep costume! Though I'm more curious about the dragon, you know I don't mind having a real dragon roaming around my farm. XD

Guys, get ready your 160 or 80 gems! LOL! :p

02-18-15, 11:11 AM
Hmm a dragon pet would be funny but it have nothing to do with farm story.

However a dragon floating in the air like a flag would be funny or like a balloon.

Dont forget the next thing: China and firecrackers :D

I was caught off guard too. I thought I might have a little time to rest before Easter, as I didn't play much last winter or spring. Think it depends on what type of event this is, whether or not I try. Not up for another one like Christmas or Valentine's.

I think its b.s that people without I phones or I pads can't play the same game as the ones with. It is like this in all the games and I get the short end of the stick because I don't like apple and I have android. What is up with that. I play all the games everyday and people who have apple gets to do events,crafting, and much much more. How about looking in to that instead of all the new stuff your coming up with or at least let us know something. Like are you even thinking about it, is it gonna take time. Please don't just ignore usmandroid users.

You're not the only one that feels it is unfair, but from TL's point-of-view you have to understand that with Android there are so many different platforms with different coding to reach all those users, whereas with iPhone and iPad, it is JUST APPLE and the coding is the same. That is why Android can't have all the same things that Apple users can, the coding is much more complex due to the sheer volume of different android devices and what platforms their coding requires.

Well it needs 2 iron, so that is going to take a lot of mining tools to make.

But without any instructions with this event, how do we know what it is for :confused:

There are also Peach Blossom Trees ($150) that take 3 hours and require flower clippers (received from deliveries) to harvest.

New bait (2 iron, 2 wool, 2 flax = 2 hours)

That's all I've figured out so far. Hope that helps.

Too late I already discarded it :P I think cityfan is right though because I noticed under the plants section is a bush with yellow flowers that is locked by goal... So we'll probably have to craft it later.

Tip for the mum bushes

They take 22 hrs to grow, need clippers to harvest.
For the 3rd stage, you need 15 mum petals for the flower pot, and 10 for the sheep plushies.
Not sure if more will be needed in the next phase, so when you're planting the mums, plant tons of extras if you don't want to wait another day.....they cost only 150 coins each.

02-20-15, 11:15 AM
Hmm I see, since the valentines bait was such a success last time, they decided to use it again for this event!! So far I have managed to catch exactly 0 lucky fish with them... Personally I think it is just cruel of TL to have us use those stupid bait again when most of us exhausted all our tools and iron during the last event.... But what else is new.

ciarjen
02-20-15, 12:58 PM
Well so far I regret making the dragon. It just seems to be a huge decor piece which will go into storage. I made it because I thought it we had to place it as part of the goal to complete the event and upgrade it like we normally do.

From what I can see after you place the dragon, that's it for that goal. The goal where you make the fortune cookies, which I think then unlocks more goals, seems to be independent of the dragon goal.

So it may not be necessary to waste all those resources if you don't want the decoration but having said that probably the day before the end of the event, TL will announce that it needs to be completed to win the prize.

Without any instructions here we all seems to be playing the guessing game. Based on the last 2 events it is highly likely that we will be unable to complete the goals without spending gems. I have not made any of the new bait after I wasted all that iron and wool on the Valentine bait.

Make sure you scroll down there is six peach blossoms to give to finish that goal.
Build lunar shop
Give twelve fortune cookies
Grow four peach trees
And the one you have to scroll down for
Give six peach blossoms

You have to finish above goal and that will unlock the lucky fish bait in the bait shop

Got that quite a bit. But they've fixed the fish and peach flowers so we can post extras...

The next quest, "The Lucky Dumpling", calls for crafting 3 bait. This sounds reasonable until you realize that we need to make 6 dumplings which require 4 flour, 3 eggs, and 2 fish each, for a total of 12 fish. After the Valentine event, in which I used over 100 tools, I have no tools or iron ore, and the drop rate is very poor. The chances of getting TL's "lucky fish" are so slim that I think of them as "unlucky fish."

This same quest also includes 18 more fortune cookies (3 flour, 2 sugar, 3 eggs each equals 54 flour, 36 sugar, and 54 eggs). Added to the above we will need 24 more flour and 18 eggs for a grand total of 78 flour and 72 eggs.
This seems impossible without spending $ and/or gems.

I don't think I will make it to the sheep doggie but good luck to all.

It also only requires 3 baits to be crafted, but you need 12 red fish for the dumplings in the 2nd challenge, and since you're not going to get a red fish with every lucky bait, it's going to take a lot more than 3!

I bought more than 4 trees also at least they look nice.

Step4 uses more peach blossom trees ans well as the mum flowers. Those take 2 days to grow so make sure you buy plenty.. Not sure how many more will be needed. I'm still waiting for mine to grow.

How about updating the first post each time someone unlocks the next goal and then listing what the requirements are to complete each one. I'm trying to figure out if I should keep all the peach blossoms I've been harvesting or if they are even going to be needed after the first goal.....I kept using the clippers on them anticipating that more were going to be used later on but now they are taking up precious barn space.

Well so far with the drop rate on the fish, that seems impossible and I would guess that will be impossible for everyone, unless they spend gems.

Does the lucky dumpling goal give the sheepdog prize or is there another goal to follow?


I am just thinking, do we need even more fish after that.

I've seen peach blossom for sale and I have the trees and lots of clippers but no need for them other than the first goal of giving 6. Which seems odd too.

There could be more goals being released in the coming days but I think if the bait doesn't work and people can't get the fish, then there will be no point to any other goals. They are just going to get stuck.

The mum flowers are planted in the same way as the blossom trees. The new year flowers are made in the lunar workshop and I don't know anything about the plushies.
So you will need clippers which are abundant on my farm. I need to know how many I should save as my barn is bursting.

The 3 goals and their requirements that we know of so far. None of these give the sheep dog as prize yet.





Make sure you scroll down there is six peach blossoms to give to finish that goal.
Build lunar shop
Give twelve fortune cookies
Grow four peach trees
And the one you have to scroll down for
Give six peach blossoms

You have to finish above goal and that will unlock the lucky fish bait in the bait shop

The first goal when you complete it they will be in your cellar.

Thanks ciarjen for putting all the goals so far in one post.

Prizes I see on Stormie's farm

One pony which is for purchase in the market for 400 gems

Two fireworks which come from competing the first goal

One tree comes from the second goal

One animated drum from the third goal.

I see no other prizes there so I am thinking the fourth goal gives the dog.

The dragon is a decoration made in the lunar workshop but at this time does not lead to another goal.

As far as we can see, it is not necessary to craft the dragon unless you want the decoration and then you have the whole event to do so.

The requirements on the windmills for the sauce and other item for the trains has been excessive and I don't think it is any accident that these goals also require flour/sugar.

Just like it is no accident that lucky bait needs iron after everyone has used up their iron and mining tools for the Valentine's event.


This is not a fun gaming experience and I will not be surprised to see many people drop out of this event.


From what we know so far, most people will get stuck because they can't get the lucky fish. So when you get to that goal I wouldn't worry about making the next lot of fortune cookies unless you know you can meet the fish requirements.

I think its very random and i call it luck about the fish because i found 12 lucky fish out of 15 baits.

But i must say its very f...ed up that for some the fish stays away.

Even if each bait gave you a fish (which it doesn't! ) that would mean that you would need 60 iron to make the bait. How many mining tools do you need to get 60 iron ????

I've used 4 bait and only got 1 fish so far. So how many bait and iron am I going to need to get 30 fish ?

Just a heads up about the time needed to craft everything in the lunar workshop. Unless you can use your workshop 24 hours a day (and for that you will need parts to unlock slots) it is going to be very difficult to craft everything you need (not that you will be able to get all the fish :p)

Please bear all this in mind before you start goals you will not be able to achieve.



Goal 1
12 cookies 1080 mins (36 flour, 24 sugar)

Goal 2
18 cookies 1620 mins (54 flour, 36 sugar)
6 dumpling 900 mins (24 flour)

Goal 3
5 flowers 1050 mins
5 plushies 900 mins


Goal 4
25 cookies 2250 mins (75 flour, 50 sugar)
9 dumpling 1350 mins (36 flour)
10 flowers 2100 mins
7 plushies 1260 mins


Dragon 720 mins



Total minutes = 13230
Total hours = 221
Total days = 9.2



In summary there is over 9 days worth of crafting calculated on the basis that the lunar workshop is used 24 hours a day, every day.

Have just made a decision not to complete this task. Too much is asked, both in time and stress. The only way is to spend gems. I will leave it till Easter so I can collect some tools together. This game is supposed to be played for fun, but all the fun has been taken away. It used to be a laugh reading the forum as it was good to know that other people were struggling with you, but one person leaving posts just annoys me.they seem to think that everyone should spend money and play the game the way they tell you to. Sick of being talked down toby someone who only appears to have been playing for a couple of months. Good luck everyone. Hope yor manage to get the rewards without losing the will to live

Thanks Ciarjen for posting the info altogether from other posts of what is needed for each goal!

I've been trying to stockpile clippers ready for when I need them, but have calculated we need 144 in total for this task! Gulp!

With the other info you've put on of how long it will take to make everything needed I'm pretty sure I'm not going to finish this task either (what a surprise, that's the last 3 I've not been able to complete!).

Just a heads up about the time needed to craft everything in the lunar workshop. Unless you can use your workshop 24 hours a day (and for that you will need parts to unlock slots) it is going to be very difficult to craft everything you need (not that you will be able to get all the fish :p)

Please bear all this in mind before you start goals you will not be able to achieve.



Goal 1
12 cookies 1080 mins (36 flour, 24 sugar)

Goal 2
18 cookies 1620 mins (54 flour, 36 sugar)
6 dumpling 900 mins (24 flour)

Goal 3
5 flowers 1050 mins
5 plushies 900 mins


Goal 4
25 cookies 2250 mins (75 flour, 50 sugar)
9 dumpling 1350 mins (36 flour)
10 flowers 2100 mins
7 plushies 1260 mins


Dragon 720 mins



Total minutes = 13230
Total hours = 221
Total days = 9.2



In summary there is over 9 days worth of crafting calculated on the basis that the lunar workshop is used 24 hours a day, every day.

Very interesting. The problem with these goals is you cannot plant the mum flowers until you unlock the goal which requires them. Once you plant them you cannot harvest them for 22 hours. Therefore this puts the goal on hold for a day. I suppose you can continue making the cookies and dumplings for the last goal or the dragon. This is no good for players who do not read this forum so know they'll need them.

Thanks Ciarjen for posting the info altogether from other posts of what is needed for each goal!

I've been trying to stockpile clippers ready for when I need them, but have calculated we need 144 in total for this task! Gulp!

With the other info you've put on of how long it will take to make everything needed I'm pretty sure I'm not going to finish this task either (what a surprise, that's the last 3 I've not been able to complete!).

I'm going to continue with it and give it my best shot, hoping people will be selling parts towards the end! Good luck everyone.


You're welcome.


I don't think there will be a problem getting clippers when you need them. I have seen hundreds in the newspaper today. The same with the peach blossom. There are probably a lot of people wondering why they need them because they can't see the later goals.

And without iron and the fish, they are not going to get there either.

When I arrange my farm I made sure, everything was accessable to my pet so they weren't confined to one place. Does anyone else just take a few minutes to sit back and watch your pets have fun!!!!!!! ❄️❄️😀❄️😀❄️😀❄️😀😀⛄️⛄️⛄️⛄️⛄️ ITS SNOWING!!!!!!

That's a good point. If they don't know that they are going to need many more they will not be making them and by the time they realise they need them, they will run out of available crafting hours in the lunar workshop.

i have the same problem but i don't see the problem to wait 22 hours we have 10 days left, all goals are easy to get and if it cost us 22hr of our time well then we have 9 days and 2 hrs left.

But the goals aren't easy to get. I have managed to catch 3 lucky fish so far. If I hadn't skipped the dumplings with gems I would still be stuck on that goal.
The goals are only easy if you are lucky with mining and fishing. I have 10 mining tools left, they aren't dropping with deliveries so how am I going to craft the special bait with no iron? If I do manage to craft it how am I to make dumplings when I only get anchovies not lucky fish?
I repeat the goals are not easy for most if us.

Thats true its all about luck and like i said in my first post its not easy to get in the time we want to.

Its bit more easy over time, we have 10 days left, 4 days are past and we are already doing the last mission.

I believe 10 days is much and more people that are finished the more the chances are that you can buy it from the market.

Wen i am done with the fish i will sell about 30 lucky fish, ill let you know wen.

We get how you find it easy though, as you keep telling us. But to keep saying it is easy, when it is not for others, is not productive.


Perhaps a little more consideration for other players would be better.

I've not unlocked the flowers either. I have had 2 fish out of 6 bait. Unless I get more fish I will be unable to unlock the flowers without gems to complete the dumpling requirements.


In the meantime I am just making fortune cookies.

To tell people its easy over time lets say to collect your neede fish cost 4 a 5 days its still good right and it give people more hope but it cost more time, we all want it all in 1 hour and thats not realistic.

By telling its oh so hard then you create a vision where people think why the hell do i still do this event.

I had to gem past the first goal as well but I had figured that would happen considering I depleted most of my mining tools during the Valentine's event.

Thank you Ciarjen for breaking this down! Yikes I didn't think about the time I'd need to complete all the goals. I can barely play 10 hrs/day let alone 24 nonstop. I've always been able to get all the pets in an event. I will still give my best effort but this event might be the first one I can't get the pet.

I also don't appreciate you telling us over and over how 'easy' it is. This is a very hard event for most people, and like Judy said, most are still on the second stage. I have been making bait non stop and out of 15+ bait I have caught 3 lucky fish. That is a ton of resources and frustration, and to keep seeing you say how easy these quests are is actually more disheartening. Not everyone has two accounts to play on, or unlimited time. I have never had to gem through quests before, and this is the first one I feel I have to.

Seven special bait so far, and not one fish. I know it is not supposed to be easy, and I try not to complain about a free game, but this is going to be SUPER hard without gems, so close on the heels of a very resource-draining Valentines event.

I find it really annoying to be told that it is easy, and to see that the OP posted some kind of trick or hint and then removed it, but continues to boast about being on the fourth goal and how easy it is... Well. Good for you! Now go suck eggs.

Can someone else post a new thread with the goals listed clearly? I am also struggling to understand the way this is written.

Randomness combined with low drop rate is always going to cause a problem. Lots of people are going to find obtaining the fish very difficult. Then there is also the problem of getting the iron and mining tools.......

If you can afford to spend some gems it may be worthwhile skipping the dumplings and then crafting what else you can. In the meantime you may find some extras people are selling in the newspaper.

The pony will be available to buy until the end of the event anyway.


The sheepdog looks seriously cute, so I think it is worthwhile trying to get if you have the options with gems to finish off if you need to.

That is a good way of thinking!

Give 6 fish dumplings (4 flour, 3 eggs, 2 lucky fish) 2.5 hrs = 15 hrs -

10 GEMS EACH TO SKIP

Basically I can mass produce cookies and make the flowers.

I can skip the dumplings !

Total dumplings needed for event is 15 dumplings or 150 gems!

Everyone is going to have some but might need to skip the second goal quickly because you need to start making mums!

Still crafting bait and fishing the hot spots, but for 9 baits crafted I still have zero lucky fish to show for it. Clippers seem to be making the rounds in the newspaper, so I am not too worried about those. Also managed to snag a plushie there!

I will not be doing this event at all. I'm not purchasing the Lunar workshop or even attempting any of this. With that said, I think the only thing I'll get that I'll be able to sell and help those of you trying the event is the clippers from deliveries, right?

I haven't played any of my TL games since Thursday as my youngest son was sick and I was taking care of him, but he's feeling better now so I have time for my games again, just as a snow storm is yet again barreling down on me. :( I'll hopefully at least keep power. *eek*

So, if I get clippers you can all expect to see them getting sold in my shop fairly soon. I'll also try to help out with any pick-axes I get. I'm holding onto the shovels though, sorry, but I have some clearing to do on my land and it requires the shovels. :p

The Chinese Dragon Pony on my game says I already met my limit. I have no pony, if I received it I don't know where it landed, it's not in the cellar.

Weird!
There is no limit on how many Chinese dragon ponies you buy.
They cost four hundred gems each and when you bought it it should of went in your cellar.

If all your horse pens are full though it would say limit reached.

Store a horse in that case in your cellar.

But this does not tell you where your horse is

I used gems on the dumplings and am crafting the plant and plushie. Finding lots of flowers and clippers in the paper. While those are being made, I am stocking up my flour and sugar for the fortune cookies so i'll be ready for those with no delay. At the end I will make all my extras available in the store. So good luck everyone, this event is quite cute.

I may be skipping it as well...I don't have the gems to drop for second event and if you get the fish random then it probably take four to five bait to get a fish and I don't have that amount of iron save up, I use most for valentines.

Not funny, TL! It's bad enough to waste a number of picks to get 2 iron ore to add to the 2 wool and then wait two hours for the unlucky bait. But then to get an empty hook saying, "It got away! Try again!" Isn't a single anchovy insulting enough??

TL is actually saying this? Wow...that is an insult...it takes a while to get the materials for the bait, I think every bait should produce a lucky fish. I could see if it was regular bait the yellow one then I could see but getting wool and iron is hard.

Im guessing as people were saying about having 2nd accounts that they have more than 1 and are selling themselves the extra items from those accounts to the main 1

If you are fast enough it works. What you do is to have your main farm ready to go to the trade button on your mini farm. On the minifarms, hit sell and force quit it immediately. Then hit the trade button on your main farm. Doing it this way is very fast and you won't lose. Remember to reboot your farms before trying it again. Do 1 item at a time to make it faster and you shouldn't lose. Trying to list 2 or more items increases your chance of losing

I finally got the ore to make the bait and got a lucky fish on the first try. I nearly fell over. With the drop rate for tools what it currently is and the frequency of getting ore that will probably be it for me, particularly since with the Valentine's episode going how I thought it would, I'm not trying hard--too frustrating and disappointing to want to succeed just to get diddly squat. I contemplated the dragon, even knowing the lousy drop rate for gold, but decided that's a lost cause.

I'll echo what the overwhelming majority of the others have said. It is not easy. I don't mind working for the goals, but the work has to be rewarded at a better rate than what the game does. And that opinion has nothing to do with wanting stuff in an hour's time.

I have three extra farms. I did it like this and two other ways. Sometimes it worked. Mostly it didn't. Some dork was always faster than me. Especially on my super baby shops. Now I just play for the gems in other games, Im case I get another ipad or larger android tablet later, that will make checking the games more often worthy.

If you can afford to spend some gems it may be worthwhile skipping the dumplings and then crafting what else you can. In the meantime you may find some extras people are selling in the newspaper.
The pony will be available to buy until the end of the event anyway.
The sheepdog looks seriously cute, so I think it is worthwhile trying to get if you have the options with gems to finish off if you need to.

ciarjen, as always your insight and suggestions are appreciated.
That sheep dog is so FLUFFY <3

It helps if your smaller farms have no neighbors other than your own farms. That cuts down on visits by neighbors. Also, do not visit any farms from your mini farms and don't post from those farms on others walls. The idea is not to leave a trail. I have 4 neighbors on my mini farms... All mine. I don't visit other farms. If I do, don't tap on hearts, don't post on wall.

I have always read all of the advice ciarjen gives and it is always very useful to most of the players that come to this forum.

I for one agree with Wendy I think I choose to no longer post on this particular thread and am tired of being made to feel inferior. Glad there was two threads for the valentine event.

I love this game and enjoyed the way the players helped each other on the forum during events and I choose to no longer be mocked and I really don't understand why you are allowed to do this.

Ciarjen and minidemon and a few others have always jumped in with constructive advice.

I have counted to ten a few times and now am hitting post.

Back to Dragon Story!

Thanks! :D I always enjoyed reading the advices posted by you and Ciarjen. It's very helpful!

It's great to help out one another if you can, since afterall we are still fellow farmers! Otherwise, none of us will be able to complete and get the community prizes right? Although I don't like the way how TL set up some of the events. Especially the ridiculous low drop rates and now we got the stupid low drop rate for special bait.

Used 11 baits and only got 2 fishes back. Only enough to craft one dumpling. No fish = no dumpling! And I'm still stuck at the 2nd goal. Ha! :rolleyes: Indeed a fortune torture event!

ciarjen
02-22-15, 02:59 AM
Thanks for all the kind words of support :)


Goal number 2 the Lucky Dumpling is complete. I used gems to skip the dumplings as I am having difficulty getting the fish needed. What a surprise ! I actually got an empty hook this morning from a hotspot, not even an anchovy. :(



I've unlocked the mums and have planted lots of them but will have to wait a day to harvest so I can't craft any of the new year flowers or plushies at the moment. In the meantime I will keep making fortune cookies in anticipation of goal number 4.

This is called duplication trade,
Trading with your self for own profits and us on multiple devices.

I do this from the beginning and mostly at 3 trades at the same time.

Yes i lose sonetimes but mostly i win anyway.

I am almost done expanding my farm and i am lvl 21 hihi with alot of free space.

Use ios for events and combine android for tools and maps.

I found out that android has a small (small show up delay) if you selling things
with an android it shows the items on ios bit later recalculate that.

Goodluck

Deleting deliveries that I can't fill; filling orders hoping for a pick or shovel; rarely get one and go mining for 2 pieces of iron; waiting hours to get a special bait; fishing finally and wheeeeee.....get an anchovy! (This has happened the last 5 times with the only difference being the unneeded fish I get) The special bait ruined the valentines event for me and now seems to be the same problem - I don't expect it to be easy but this seems close to impossible. Just posting hoping TL "loosens" the reins - by the time I can finally craft the bait - maybe a guaranteed magic fish?! (Especially since we need two for each item)

We need 30 fish to complete the goal. It takes 2 iron to craft each bait and considering how rare it is to get the fish, we need iron in the 100s. And considering how iron in the mine is not too common either that means we probably need treble or quadruple that in mining tools to complete the goal.

This is insane. No One can achieve this goal.


If the fish are a rare drop from the bait, then the bait should be one which is easily crafted.


With this special lucky bait and the amount of iron/tools needed to make it, it should be a guaranteed drop.

In the end I gave up and spent gems to complete the second goal :(

As many have already said this goal isn't achievable unless you can use multiple devices or are lucky enough to find something useful in the newspaper.

I gave the unlucky bait the benefit of the doubt and I crafted 30 baits and used them in batch of 10 only to get 3 fishes. Apparently according to TL I was supposed to craft 120 baits to get the fish needed for the 6 dumplings which means 240 iron ores which means at least 200 mining tools right after a resources consuming event :mad:

Whoever came up with the idea of the bait deserves to be hit with rotten fish.

They didn't even take the time to consider our feedback for the Valentine's Day event. They want us to craft the baits using precious and rare resources then wait for 2 hours only to get back an anchovy or even worse a 'try again'.

Pushing for gems purchases like this isn't fair. I would understand the long crafting time and the absurd resources requested if we were to make a reusable bait... even the low drop rate for lucky fish would be fine but these baits are a consumable so the fish should be guaranteed.

Oh well... I fell for this sick scheme this time but next time I'm definitely skipping the event.

I am not even going to try for the dog. :( I will just get the dragon and call it quits. The iron is too impossible. What a shame.

I only have 7 iron and Im not going to waste them on a few hooks that will accomplish nothing for me. I will just start saving all iron all for next event I guess. This is stupid. Why not just put the dog for sale in the market for gems since that is essentially the only way to get it anyways?

I agree with everything you said. The hopeful part of me thinks maybe TL doesn't realise that they set this up so that you need hundreds of mining tools just to get the fish that you need. But then we have given them loads of feedback on this and in the Valentine's event and they have not responded so I am inclined to believe this is exactly how they have planned it.

I can understand them wanting players to financially contribute in these events. But like you say this is a sick scheme. It's the underhand deviousness of their tactics which leave me uneasy and it is such a shame, as the more they take the fun out of these events, the less people want to play.
