The only way to get Blossoms is via the Tree or one of the Lanterns. It is highly advisable to upgrade your Tree as quickly as possible to take advantage of the extra Blossoms per 3 hour collection period!

This is a one time use only! Do not purchase until you get the goal asking you to do so! This has a 3 hour collection time once you give it a Lantern Oil!

04-23-15, 03:04 PM
Received 4 blossoms after the Spring Blossom was done with construction. Received a Lotus Flower from each of my first 2 deliveries. After a total of 11 deliveries so far, I received 3 Lotus flowers, 1 worn Stone and 1 Lamp oil. They are stored in the barn, so they can be sold.

The Lantern Oil goes in the Floating Lantern. it raised off the ground and started a 3 hour timer. Not sure what happens next.

jrhgohawks
04-23-15, 03:05 PM
If I did my math right, we get 4 blossoms every 3 hours (not including lanterns/gems). So it will take 30 hours to complete the first task after which we will probably be able to upgrade for more blossoms and/or more often. It will take 75 hours to get to the first prize without upgrade.

I don't like these collection events per se. Because I'm up all night. But Bambi can have a new Mom in the reindeer from Xmas, so sleep can bypass me for the next week! I wonder how many folks are gonna throw tantrums and day they'll quit? Hopefully none. We know the game is random. We know someone people will use gems. We know some can't afford them. We know some folks won't finish in time. But I hope we can keep the thread helpful and some parts are able to be sold.

I finished the Xmas one by a few hours. Didn't finish the birthday one. Or the fall one. I only have about 47 gems since I clicked and bought some dumb blackberries yesterday when making the jam.

Good luck, everyone! Let's all get our pet in the end!

I'm more concerned about having to spend 35 gems (which I don't think I have) with only the promise of 10 back, just to complete a goal.

And of course, I have to wait another 4 hours before I can play...

I'm pretty sure Piper is the leader this time around so it's her goals you need to worry about. I didn't receive another goal once I placed the gem lantern, so it all goes via Piper for this event. That means you don't have to do the gem lantern if you don't want to. :)

The paper lantern for the first goal (35 gems, but a rebate) is one of those one-time buys. It disappears after applying an oil from delivery, and you buy again. I wouldn't. The 'coinage' for this event seems to be oils from delivery and blossoms from the 2,500 coin plant/water garden. The latter returns 4 blossoms every 3 hours. The first goal requires 40. A long haul, friends. If you're well-placed for coins, maybe spend for a second one. (Upgrades no doubt will come to return more). Keep in mind barn-storage for these items. After applying items to goals, oil and petals get stored in barn.

I saw that too and thought the price was mega inflated. How much were those trees for Xmas? Something like 2500 or 5000 coins. The gem ones were much less than this lantern. I thought it could be cute dedoration and then I saw the price. Ha! I'm not paying for that foolishness.

The drop rate is so low. :( I've done a bunch of deliveries, and only got one lily pad so far. Hope it picks up a little. This is my first time in an event from the beginning. I leveled up into the Easter quest, but towards the end of it. I'm not sure what to expect yet. I guess I was hoping for a blossom every delivery, or something like that since so many are needed.

04-23-15, 03:59 PM
Thanks, queentina3, but in my market, there isn't a one limit on floating garden. Is this their glitch? They had a big one a few days ago allowing plot and trees purchase without posted limit, then a few days later seized the ones I'd bought. Wish they'd get their act together.

queentina3
04-23-15, 04:14 PM
Floating Lanterns and Paper Lanterns you can buy as many as you want. No wait time on Paper Lanterns but there is a 3 hour wait on Floating Lanterns. Spring Blossom is a one item purchase (see first post where it shows limit 1/1).

I received 10 Blossoms when I collected from the Paper Lantern. Will update this post with the pic in a little bit, have to update the first post with other information first.

On the Easter event we were guaranteed to get a bunny if we completed all of the goals. Does anyone know if we are guaranteed to get that sweet little deer if we do all of the goals? I know that we are to collect blossoms to unlock the prizes with the last one being the deer, but was just wondering if I should do the goals as well.

I doubt the goals will have much impact for this event, its all about collecting blossoms this time around for the deer and havnt seen any sign of another animal
There are deco items as prizes too so dont think there'll be more as goal rewards

LOL!!! You got 20??? I only got 10. *whimpers* None of my deliveries have given me anything to upgrade the Spring Blossom either. But it has been given me maps and land deeds. Sure, now when I don't want them but upgrade parts for the darn tree. :rolleyes:

To all,

I've updated the first post with as much information as I have, but I'm sure there are things I'm overlooking - going through a similar event like this on Castle Story not that long ago. Can you all take a look and let me know if there is anything I should add that isn't self-explanatory? I'm hoping to avoid a long thread with question after question, so if I can add the most common ones to the first post, it may help people from having to dig through the thread for answers.

Thanks!

I'm sorry for being so thick, but, by deliveries, they mean Airplane deliveries????
Also I checked Stormie's farm and he doesn't have anything in there from this event yet .
Also, are people buying more than one wooden paper lantern to use as decoration?
I'm not really understanding the lantern thing. Why are there two??
I'm sure I'll think up more questions as I time goes on. Thanks Peeps!!!

ErnieKatz, Yes it is Airplane deliveries. I also checked Stormie's farm and didn't see any event related stuff, but it is early yet. You can buy more than one wooden paper lantern, but they are one time use so if you use it, it will probably disappear like the bunny trap did on the Easter event. I'm still learning as we go!

Aroara, I haven't had any issues with stormie not selling anything. I have noticed that he lists daily 6 things and if I purchase something it doesn't get a new item listed until the next day.

-Yes, plane deliveries. When it arrives back it MAY give you one of the items needed to upgrade the Blossom. However, it will most likely be a rare drop. I've not received one yet.
-Some may, but I'm not. They cost 35 gems a piece. Depending on how good the Floating Lantern (coin one) is for drops, I may get a few of those over the coming days.
-One Lantern is for coins, one is for Gems. The one for Gems offers more than the one for Coins does, at least according to the back of the card.
-Stormie may not have updated his shop yet. I know he had items for sale earlier in the day, as I purchased items from him.
-Do check the first post as your other questions may already be answered in it.


So no one else is having an issue with Stormie not selling anything ?

He sold items earlier but I'd already bought them from him. He probably hasn't been updated again yet for you, if you purchased from him after TL reset.

It seems like my drop rate is getting better, or at least the average is...Sometimes I get nothing event related for a while, then I get a couple in a row.... I have everything except one stone for first upgrade, and got two lamp oils. The gem lantern gave me 20 blossoms. Still waiting on the other one to finish its timer.

Oh gosh, that is so horrible!!!! I did that once, thought I was on another delivery but was on one that wasn't completely filled, and I hit the button that sent it and I don't even know how many gems it cost me at the time. Then I was making something and clicked quickly, I think it was salads, and didn't notice that I didn't have enough ingredients for my 3 slots, and it deducted gems for the missing spinach. I wanted to bang my head on my desk for making such a foolish move. Now I'm much more careful. LOL!!!

My lantern that I bought for gems gave me one of the green animated lanterns. It doesn't have a timer so I guess it's just a decoration. I would have rather had the blossoms everyone else seems to have got from it...I only have 12 so far. This seems really difficult....am I missing something? Been doing deliveries but not enough parts to do the upgrade yet.

He wasn't selling any items that you could use for this event so you didn't miss much. He had for me just a wheat, corn, 2 peppers, a potato, and a spinach. I just grabbed them so I could get him out of my newspaper. LOL!!!

What an awesome tip :D I've been playing for months and didn't realise I'd get a slot in the newspaper of somebody selling something I might actually want if I got rid of Stormie's stock. Thanks so much :cool: :D :D

Oh gosh, that is so horrible!!!! I did that once, thought I was on another delivery but was on one that wasn't completely filled, and I hit the button that sent it and I don't even know how many gems it cost me at the time. Then I was making something and clicked quickly, I think it was salads, and didn't notice that I didn't have enough ingredients for my 3 slots, and it deducted gems for the missing spinach. I wanted to bang my head on my desk for making such a foolish move. Now I'm much more careful. LOL!!!

I try to be super careful, but sometimes...oops. :(
Queentina does this event use deliveries only? Or will it eventually require stockpiling like the last event?...for example..like chocolate, fish,apples,etc?

In Dragon Story, when they have this exact same type of challenge, they have an item you purchase to get items from like the blossom tree in this event, but they have other ways to get the items, like from hatching eggs, and harvesting crops. It would be nice if they would do that here.... make it possible to get blossoms from harvesting crops and perhaps from the crafting buildings, kitchens etc as well.

OK here is a head's up!

This is what took place in the Christmas event!

Individual Goals
First Prize: Santa's Gift Sack : 100 presents
Second Prize: Santa's Sleigh : 450 presents
Third Prize: Snowy Clock Tower : 1000 presents
Fourth Prize: Santa's Workshop : 2000 presents
Fifth Prize: Reindeer : 4200 presents

So if it goes the same way we are going to need at least 4200 spring blossoms to obtain Bambi!

Community prize at Christmas unlocked at five hundred presents too!

I'm going to put this information in the bottom of the first post as an FYI. Also, can you give me the link to the Christmas event so I can take a look at it? I was on my hiatus so missed out and want to see how that one worked out for y'all. ;)


Put in the first post that if you upgrade your timer resets so if you close to making a collectiom wait to upgrade

It's already there. I put it up last night before I went to bed as judyandthecat advised us when she went to upgrade hers. :D


What an awesome tip :D I've been playing for months and didn't realise I'd get a slot in the newspaper of somebody selling something I might actually want if I got rid of Stormie's stock. Thanks so much :cool: :D :D

Yeah, that is why some of my neighbors think that I have the Truffle Forest or Alpaca already, when I don't. It's because I had to purchase the feed from Stormie to get him out of my newspaper. I had made a suggestion awhile back to TL that they remove him from the newspaper completely, as honestly, we don't need him there. He's the first neighbor on everyone's lists and he takes up the first slot in our markets. So it isn't like we don't know about him! Why oh why do we need him crowding our newspaper too? :rolleyes:

Right, that was how it was in Castle Story, we could collect from flowers (rarely dropped tulips), the Castle Gardens, and the Conservatories (just as some examples) and get the tulips needed to advance, but it looks like the only way to get the Blossoms is from the Tree. We get the upgrade parts for the Blossom Tree from deliveries, but the actual blossoms themselves seem to come only from the Tree or Lanterns, which means this is going to be very difficult to make the quota.

Has anyone received Blossoms from doing Plane Deliveries or ONLY upgrade parts? The way the pictures in the first post read, you don't actually get blossoms from the deliveries. Also, can the Tree only be upgraded once, as shown in the upgrade pic? If so, that is only 8 blossoms every 3 hours = 64 blossoms in a day if you don't speed up collection with gems.

04-24-15, 03:48 AM
Just upgraded my garden, it can be upgraded again to produce 12 blossoms and costs 2 of each upgrade part again
It looks the same though, i was hoping each time you upgrade the tree would grow a little

I like stormie being in the paper, it means if his selling good stuff i can get 2 of each item ^-^

Stage 1 gives 4 blossoms
To level up to Stage 2 requires 2 each of lotus flowers, worn stones and lily pads gives 8 blossoms
To level up to Stage 3 requires 2 each of lotus flowers, worn stones and lily pads gives 12 blossoms
To level up to Stage 4 requires 3 each of lotus flowers, worn stones and lily pads gives 16 blossoms.

If this event is like others then the tree can be upgraded multiple times until it gives 60 or so every 3 hrs. It takes a lot of upgrade parts to do this though. I usually try to upgrade mine as quickly as possible until I know I only have to do 4 or 5 collections a day for the rest of the event. I may use gems to do so depending on how poor the drop rates are.

Also remember to try not to sell your excess if you are serious about upgrading. In all previous events I have had a glut of one of the upgrade parts but this changes over the event. So you may find you are short of the stones later on even if you have an excess now.

Thanks everyone for the detailed information.

True kirsty050, I do that as well but I'd still prefer him gone. :p

Is Stage 4 the last upgrade? I'm going to add your information to the first post, tigarlilyvol.

So, the deliveries is ONLY to get the upgrade parts, and then once we have them and the tree is fully upgraded, we can go back to gaming as usual but collect from the tree, correct? I'm losing out on some really good profits by having to use the darn plane again. LOL!!! I'd prefer to leave it be once I've upgraded the tree but if it DOES drop Blossoms, I'll suffer through. I've just not had any drop for me yet.

I doubt it, in previuos events you could upgrade to level 15. 60/3 hrs. It takes a lot of room in your barn as you should expect to need over 30 of each upgrade part!

Queentina all other community based events the item went to stage fifteen

From the Christmas thread

And there are 15 levels to upgrade. Last upgrade required 48 of each part

Meaning you will need 150 empty spaces on your barn and the last upgrade at Christmas gave sixty presents for each collection

You all need to remember a perfect day is eight collections and that means setting alarms at night and yes I did this last night.

Unfortunately most people work and have commitments so are not going to do perfect collection days.

If We need 4200 blossoms to get Bambi then you need to level your tree up as quickly as possible.

ETA: Thanks for the level information. As you each level up, check the first post and the thread, and if it isn't listed what the upgrade info is, can you post it so I can add it? You all may upgrade faster than me as my deliveries still aren't dropping me the necessary items. *sighs* I may have to gem through a few upgrades. :eek:

Unfortunately the only way to get blossoms at this time is from the tree so keep sending plane orders to upgrade tree as quickly as possible. In days to come upgrade parts will become available in the newspaper and through this list.

And the only other way to get flowers is to buy the lanterns for 35 gems or the one for 2500 coins for a chance at extra blossoms or upgrade parts

People get more parts of one item...run out of room in their barns so sell the excess.

Ever since I posted last night that I would be selling any event parts that I received as soon as I got them, I have been inundated with neighbor requests. I appreciate the requests, but I will be accepting very few of the high level ones since I try to use my neighbors first when looking for a needed item and most high levels either post 10 of an item or items above my level so I cannot use them. I also try to limit neighbors since I try to visit them all daily and with 100 or more I cannot do this.

The Floating Lantern has a 3 hour collection time, when it's up you tap on it and find the item you've won. The Paper Lantern (the one for gems) doesn't have a collection timer on it. The first post is constantly being updated as new information becomes available, so make sure you check it to see if your question may already be answered there. :)

After level 7, I think the next major change is level 11, with the final upgrade at level 15. I always regretted fully upgrading my harvest tree, as stopping one level short would have left a prettier tree with more colors.

Judging from the pop-up showing the full-grown tree by the pond, I may decide to not go for the full upgrade, so it doesn't look just exactly like the normal cherry tree in the market.

The drop for stones is low on my deliveries, too, lower than the bad drop rate for the other items we need. Such is how TL/S8 designs these events. Remember: their goal is to get us to spend money.

You know, I hate comparing games as really, they're not the same, not even BS and RS, but I have to admit when comparing World Events, I enjoyed CS's more than this one, and this one's only just started.

For one, I hate deliveries via the plane in general. The drop rate for items is normally atrocious and even moreso for the items needed for the Blossom Tree.

For two, the amount of money or even XP we get doesn't match with how long it takes to cook some of the items. I'd much prefer selling the items in my shop and getting a nice profit or giving them to the train where I can at least get 5 gems for fulfilling the order, unlike the plane where the profit is cut to almost nothing and I don't even get any good supplies/expansion items back for all my trouble.

For third, it annoys me as it flies around. I know, that's a stupid reason but it really does annoy me. I almost feel like I have to duck so it doesn't cut my head off, especially when I'm moving around my farm as it does the loop-de-loop before heading off to who knows where. :o

CS was so much better as at least we had a confirmed drop from multiple sources (Castle Garden which is equivalent to the Blossom Tree) and then the Conservatories. Now if TL would give us a guaranteed drop of Blossoms from one of our machines or even from harvesting, I'd be a happy camper, but via deliveries and only for the upgrade supplies??? And then we don't even get the items we need every time!

Like I said, I really don't like to compare games but if there is anything the developers of Farm need to look into, it is how CS ran the last event. It wasn't easy getting all those tulips or upgrading our gardens, and many went down to the very last day in order to get that last individual prize. Maybe for the next World Event in Farm 2, they could try to do something similar, as the plane deliveries just makes me want to stop and just see how far I can get with the tree as upgraded as it is right now. I'm losing money and not getting supplies - that equals no fun and a huge disappointment.

So far this seems to be running exactly the same as the Winter event (even the amount needed for each prize) and only Plane Deliveries dropped the necessary items.

My advice for anyone quitting the event is don't!
At least just go for 500 flower blossoms then you will get all three community prizes in the bottom row!

Looks like the last prize there is an awesome skin for the house and the second prize some kind of pond perhaps with fish swimming in it.

There is plenty of days left to get five hundred flower petals!

Each upgrade adds 4 blossoms. Each level gives the level x 4 blossoms per collection. Top level is 15 so 60 blossoms per collection.

Level 7-8 requires 10 of each upgrade part.

Is that to get to level 7 and then to level 8, or just to get to level 8? My tree is on level 8 right now and that is only because I skipped for gems (I'm not getting any parts), and will probably end up having to leave my tree here. It won't get me bambi (even if I collected every 3 hours on the dot), but it will get me close and at least the first 4 individual prizes. I neglected to write down the upgrade for each stage though, so that's why I need confirmation. I know that to go from level 8 to level 9 what I've written in the first post is correct, as that's where I'm at now. :)

Thanks, queentina3, but in my market, there isn't a one limit on floating garden. Is this their glitch? They had a big one a few days ago allowing plot and trees purchase without posted limit, then a few days later seized the ones I'd bought. Wish they'd get their act together.

That happened to me too, lost 5 plots.

Don't get too down. I am also only stage 4 and can't get lily pads or rocks. You will find tree upgrade parts in the newspaper or neighbor stores with increasing frequency as we get closer to the end.

'IF' i could come up with the gems, then would it be worth it to buy the paper lantern? anyone ? share opinion
In my opinion, no. All I got for my gems wasted on the paper lantern was a green decorative lantern which is not even attractive. For my $2500 lantern I got 5 blossoms, not worth it. My drop rate is extremely low and I have managed to get to stage 4 only because of buying a few thing from the newspaper. I hope to be able to buy more upgrade parts as time goes on.
Good luck to all!

So, not really relevant to the event, but just to lighten the mood whilst we are all sitting here trying to get upgrade parts which are rarer than hen's teeth I just thought I'd share this.... I am being stalked by my pilgrim dog, who is technically in storage but keeps turning up on my farm. Today he is in my sheep pen?? Maybe he is looking for lily pads, I could definitely do with some of those. Lol.

I've been doing deliveries non stop and spent about 250,000 coins for lanterns and I am level 6 with only have 342 blossoms.


There are 15 days left and I have to collect 3858 blossoms (assuming the final goal is the same as Christmas).

So I need to collect 257 blossoms per day which is 51 per collection. And I need to be doing that from now until the end of the event, so my spring blossom needs to be stage 13 today.


That's impossible.


These are the same goals as the Christmas event which ran from 12th Dec until 5th Jan which was 25 days.

This event began on the 23rd April and will end on the 11th May (?) which is 19 days.


If the goal is the same we have much less time to do it in. Someone please correct me if I am wrong here but I think this goal is impossible.

(4,200-698)/15=233/day
233/32=7 and a bit collections/day

This is my current calculation for the event with a level 8 tree. So I need more upgrades as I cannot and will not get up every 3 hours for the next fortnight!

I have spent 585,000 coins on 234 lanterns. Of the 205 I have opened I have got 7,100 coins, 434 blossoms and 40 upgrade parts. Roughly 20% chance of a part.

I have 1.2m coins left so this event has already cost me 0.8m as the cost of deliveries is high too.

I do think it is possible for me to upgrade a few more times and I will succeed but it will be very costly.

My tree is still at stage 8 and will most likely only get upgraded to stage 9 (at some point). I'm not getting anything useful from deliveries at all! :(

If we need 4200 blossoms and this is a 19 day event, then we all should have upgraded the spring blossom to stage 11 at the start of the event.


44 blossoms per collection, 5 times a day
220 per day for 19 days = 4180


This cannot be right so please would someone from Storm8 please confirm the total number for the final goal if we have got our assumptions wrong.


Creating an event where you need to upgrade to stage 11 at the very start is just ridiculous. I could probably use gems to upgrade from level 6 to 8 today but if the goal is 4200 it will be a waste of money. Even if I am able to upgrade further in the event, I will never get enough blossoms for the final goal.

queentina3
04-26-15, 05:09 AM
ciarjen, they expect you to collect every 3 hours so really it would be 44 blossoms per collection, 8 times a day = 352 and then you have 352 x 19 = 6,688. In TL's mind, that is doable and not expected to upgrade to Stage 11 that first day.

Say everyone was able to upgrade to Stage 8 that first day......32 blossoms x 8 collections = 256 x 19 = 4,864. So even at that it would be doable, in TL's mind.

I don't believe that actually. There has never been an event where you are expected to make collection during sleep hours to meet the goal - and I am talking about FarmStory2, Dragon Story, FantasyForest Story, Castle Story. All these events have been based around 16 hour days where the game is playable.

The Christmas reindeer event gave us an extra 6 days and this allowed for 10 days to make the upgrade and another 15 days to make the collections at the higher rate.


So this is why I am questioning it. Do we have our assumptions correct that the goal is 4200 ? Is the timer correct for that goal ? Storm 8 have made mistakes in the past so it would be appreciated if they confirmed if it is correct.


If the goal and timer is correct, I see no reason to continue.

"If" the goal for the Bambi is 4200 then you need to be at level 13 today and make 3hr collections, 5 times a day.


Even if you play 24 hours a day and collect 8 times per day, stage 5 at 20 blossoms per collection is not high enough to get the Bambi.

yppahc
04-26-15, 06:23 AM
To keep an eye on how I am doing I do the follwing

(final requirement-current amount)/days remaining=requirement per day
requirement per day/blossoms per collection=number of collections per day

My figures are
(4,200-817)/15 = 226/day
226/36 = 6.2 collections/day

So I still have to collect at least 6 times a day despite most of my blossoms coming from the lanterns.

I think ciarjen is correct, impossible for any player who is not coin rich or willing to spend a lot of gems. Let us hope the 4,200 is incorrect!

04-26-15, 06:26 AM
even if we do get up in the night to make collections some of us have to work so theres no way we can collect 8 times a day

I have been playing non stop and am only at stage 6.

I have 421 blossoms and most of these have come from floating lanterns. The drop rate is very poor and many times I am getting 0,1,2 or 3 blossoms.

I have bought 118 lanterns, total cost 295,000 coins to get 234 blossoms. That's an average of 1.8 blossoms per lantern which costs 2500 coins.

MsScarlet29
04-26-15, 06:50 AM
I totally agree with everything you are saying. Let's hope we get some clarification. With the current drop rate of upgrade parts even without sleep or work (not gonna happen) this is going to be almost impossible. I have been playing for nine hours and have one upgrade part to show for it. I don't like to moan but it would be nice to be rewarded for effort but this is pure luck.

Actually I was thinking about Castle Story and more recently the Cruise Event in RS 2. If I wasn't playing for my son there's no way he would've gotten Luana from the RS 2 event as he had school during the day. There were days I had to play non-stop from 7a to 9p in order to finish the days' worth of meals, impossible for those that had school/work, as seen by the thread where many didn't complete it. Or how about Castle where they've had 3 hour exchanges and you needed to make 8 to get the supplies for the Wedding Carriage in a 24 hour day? Many had to do more exchanges, but to use the least amount of items, doing the 8/3 hr exchange is what TL offered. Not to mention the latest World Event over there where it was a 4 hour collection on the Garden (only place to get upgrade supplies as well) and 2 hour on Conservatories, and there were still some that didn't make all the individual prizes.

I know it may seem outrageous to some, but to me it isn't going beyond disbelief that TL would set up a goal/event that is nearly impossible unless you spend real money on gems or play 24/7. More and more recently, in fact, that seems to be the way all of the games are headed.

Again, it's just my opinion based off of my experience and what I've had to do to succeed, others may have a different experience. :)

Oh, and I also read through the link that judyandthecat supplied me with from the Christmas event, and many didn't make the quota there even with more days added onto it, so it isn't a stretch at all to think that people won't make it this time either, especially since the drop rate seems to be about the same.

Christmas event I noticed in that thread many complaining about always getting axes to cut down the 2500 trees that would give presents or supplies to upgrade, right? These axes gotten from deliveries.........

This event I've noticed that mostly people are getting the lantern oil from the deliveries to use in the 2500 lantern/35 gem lantern that will give blossoms or upgrade supplies...........

Pretty similar situation......Not many people are having positive results from deliveries for the upgrade supplies, but they are getting the necessary item needed for the 2500 coin lantern.....And that is what many are seeing in the newspapers....Lantern Oil and like Christmas it was Axes, but not many upgrade supplies.........

How many actually got the Reindeer without using real money or gems??? How many will get Bambi without using real money/gems????

Most people didn't get the reindeer in the Christmas event because of the 4200 goal. I have many high level neigbours, a lot at level 60 and many never got it which was no surprise considering how the event had been set up. And that event was a big change from previous ones where people mostly had the chance to reach goals providing they put in many hours of gameplay.

Everything with this event, including the floating lanterns and the drop rates and goals seem to be exactly the same as the Christmas one. The difference is the amount of days and it seems a big reduction particularly considering how the Christmas event was impossible for so many.


So based on that, I am giving Storm8 the benefit of the doubt at the moment and saying this must be an error with the blossom goal versus the amount of days.


...or our assumption is wrong on the final goal number of 4200.


If, on the other hand, it is all meant to be like this, then most of us are better off just giving up now because unless you spend gems in the thousands, you won't reach the goal.

I'm not going to quit, but I'm not expecting to get Bambi. I used 16 gems already and I'm not going to spend any unless I'm 40 gems away from Bambi. This event is only doable with gems, coins or real money. I regret giving them 16.

I just saw the most amazing thing. I visited someone through the community link (can't get back) who had fields of those floating lanterns. Looked very majestic. And kind of alien.

The events are getting harder. Last year, much lower level and with the same limited playing time, I got the highest individual prize in one event. Very exciting! Now I'm well on my way to my current goal of making the community prize. Might get the gate, if I'm lucky with the newspaper. Iffy but possible.

On the good side, people are unloading all kinds of good stuff to make room for event parts. I've upgraded both barn and silo today. Thanks all!

My timer has always been 5 minutes and is currently still showing 5 minutes.

I ended up with the reindeer for Christmas about 5 or 6 days early without spending gems at all. I did buy the trees to cut down but my level was probably more along the lines of 35 or so. I definitely wasn't rolling in the dough like I am now. That all being said, I feel bad for you guys experiencing a lack of drops. I feel like I get one of the pond expansions at least one out of three tries. My barn is quite large at this point so it's easier to just keep saving them up. I hope things get better for you guys who aren't having the greatest of experiences.

I also find myself giving up pretty quickly with these events. The one that required the shears and flowers last year was the last one I was actually successful at. Not to mention, it was achievable. This is a business, and at the end of the day, all they want you to do is spend money.

I say, screw having events with crappy prizes everyone just ends up leaving in the cellar anyways. If the end goal is a pet, just put it in the normal place you buy things from, and say if you do 50 deliveries you get 20% off or something.

Gem trap just nabbed 24 gems off me. And I payed for those gems. Curse on you team lava. Are you really so selfish as to create an impossible event and not listen or care about your customers?

Most people didn't get the reindeer in the Christmas event because of the 4200 goal. I have many high level neigbours, a lot at level 60 and many never got it which was no surprise considering how the event had been set up. And that event was a big change from previous ones where people mostly had the chance to reach goals providing they put in many hours of gameplay.

Everything with this event, including the floating lanterns and the drop rates and goals seem to be exactly the same as the Christmas one. The difference is the amount of days and it seems a big reduction particularly considering how the Christmas event was impossible for so many.


So based on that, I am giving Storm8 the benefit of the doubt at the moment and saying this must be an error with the blossom goal versus the amount of days.


...or our assumption is wrong on the final goal number of 4200.


If, on the other hand, it is all meant to be like this, then most of us are better off just giving up now because unless you spend gems in the thousands, you won't reach the goal.

I guess my whole point was that even if the days are wrong and they extend the event to match the Christmas one, it isn't going to make much difference as like you said, many failed to get the Reindeer even then. Benefit of the doubt or not, extending days or lowering the last amount needed to get Bambi to make it more on Par with Christmas won't really change anything with the drop rates being so atrocious.

I've done at least 50 deliveries today and all I've received is 1 lily pad and 1 of the white flowers. That's it. We honestly should at least get 1 upgrade part every other delivery, but nope, that isn't happening. Even to speed up the tree so we could collect from it more wants too many gems that I refuse to even do that, whereas in CS I did do that a few times on my 2tina account.

I'm not going to give up, but I've already resigned myself to not getting Bambi, but at least getting a few of the decorations and making the community total. Anything I do after that will be just to help the community, but I'm not going to use any further gems to upgrade my tree. If I don't get the drops, I don't get them.

TL really needs to look at the drop rate or giving us another place to receive blossoms and/or upgrade parts, though I doubt they'll do either. :(

Well, I've never seen so many saws, axes, and shovels before!

The deliveries are just making me broke. So I'm just going to sell stuff and hope to find what I need in the paper, and take my chances with lanterns. Almost 800 flowers now, stage 10.

Question
Today, after less than 3 days of the event, a "farmer" (Level 60) has sold in the newspaper at the same time (sunday afternoon for me) including in his own "Boutique" : 30 Lotus flowers (3 * 10), 30 Lily pad (3 * 10) and 30 Stones (3 * 10). How is it possible to accumulate that in only 3 days ?
Thank you.

Mmmmm...not enough hours or days for me to attain the nominated amount of blossoms. Nothing to entice me to toss a few real coins at the game. Greed will kill the Golden Goose. At the end of the day Tis only a game, I am surely not going to wake up during my night's sleep to collect blossoms.,and don't have the gems to speed up the time of crafting. I am still about 2 days away from the community event.

Yes they are. They're in this to take as much money from the players and give back as little as possible. If they make a mistake and give too much, don't worry, they'll take it back. They did that with last weekends sale.

I for one quit but am hanging out watching and selling tons of upgrade items so you don't have to spend gems.

As I'm not playing any more, I'm taking no new neighbors, but my current neighbors are welcome to the items I can put out.

The farmer probably has a lot of coins and neighbors to buy from and fill orders for deliveries. It's doable. One of my neighbors already has a level 14 tree.

TL, it's goals & it's prizes are a freaking joke
I don't care how they screw my game up for saying that either....IMO it can't get any worse than it is.
This spring event is a complete waste. I've bought over 25 lanterns @ 2500 a piece & receive nothing but pure **** from them. The most I've received was 4 blossoms.
And I refuse to spend any more real money on ANY TL game
TL is GREEDY

This event really seems impossible for me. I have a ton of stones, but none of the other upgrade parts. I have never managed to reach the goal prize in any of the events that are styled this way. The best I can hope for is to snag enough parts from the newspaper at the very end to at least have a fully upgraded tree...

nicxole
04-26-15, 08:01 PM
Your best bet on these events is to stalk the shops. Follow people who are selling parts and usually they'll be selling more. that's how Ive been getting most of mine. I'm not even close to being fully upgraded yet though

I want Bambi so bad, but the drop rate is just ridiculous and with a week less time given to complete this challenge compared to the Christmas challenge it's numerically impossible...unless you spend a ton of money/gems and I'm not willing to break the bank on this. I think I sent about 50 deliveries today and only received maybe 3 or 4 upgrade tools. I check the newspaper constantly, which has been slightly more helpful, but it's still incredibly depressing. Judging from this thread I'm guessing the number of people who will actually end up with the final prize is going to be quite small. How unfortunate. An uphill (or rather impossible) battle takes the fun out of these challenges :(

Guys, newspaper is the key! If you don't find any parts in the newspaper, visit each person in the paper after an item is sold. Sometimes it just so happens that one of the other items in the shop is our upgrade part :)

Seems like a long shot, but I would rather search for the parts than search for deliveries items.. Coz the drop rate is close to nil for me. 95% of my parts are from the newspaper.

If you are already doing this, just felt like sharing anyway :)

Thanks for the upgrade info, I think everything I've listed there should now be accurate.

I've not seen anything in the paper and none of my neighbors are selling any of the items either. I've even resorted to community searching and not found any. I only need two more lily pads to upgrade to Stage 9 and figure that is where my tree will end, if I ever get them. I'm honestly just so darn tired of searching and not finding anything, and doing plane deliveries that give me back nothing. I'm going back to normal play at this point and just collecting from my tree every three hours while I'm awake. How far I get is how far I'll get. I'm not even bothering to try for Bambi as I know it's out of my reach.

Same here. I saw your earlier post about the lanterns, and I've run into a similar snag. I'm hoping the three I have out now may at least give me a few blossoms, but I'm not holding my breathe. I couldn't believe when I only got 100 coins back from a 2500 coin item. Honestly, that shouldn't even be an option as a reward. :rolleyes:

Why can't they just increase the drop rate?

If you have space for 8 deliveries and make all of them at once, what is the harm in guaranteeing 6 items? Let's say 2 of each item.

You still have to get more of these items depending on where you are on the game. Let's say you need to get to Stage 9. You need 12 of each. So no matter what, even with a drop rate of 6 items, you are still making 48 deliveries. Not to mention some of these items take longer to make.

I just don't get why the drop rate is so low.

travelingcircus
04-27-15, 12:15 PM
I agree, the drop rate is atrocious. I have gotten some picks, shovels, saws and a few maps, so have been able to add some plots and clear some land. However, I really need stones for my next upgrade. I have all the flowers and lily pads, but I am struggling with the stones.

Same. The other item that seems to be dropping a lot is the lantern oil. This just goes to prove that TL is just out to make money and that's the bottom line. The fact the items that are needed for this event are barely dropping, but items needed for a PAID item are dropping in excess just proves their end goal. Spend money spend money spend money otherwise you won't get the final prize.

Like I said before, just forget these events TL. Sell the deer in the store like you do with everything else. Then, if someone wants the deer, they will buy it. They will either spend their own money to get gems or more coins. But just please forget these events that make us think we actually have a chance, but quickly learn that unless we play 24/7 and spend some of our own money, we are out of luck.

Remember the event last summer when the drop rate was horrendously low for those shears? Didn't that Piper thing have something to do with that (cutting people's hair I think). So what is your excuse this time TL? Is Piper throwing the worn stones at people and eating the lotus flowers? Having said that, at least with the shears, TL solved the "Piper problem" and started dropping more of them during deliveries.

I am having the same problem with the drop rate. I haven't gotten any parts from my deliveries except 2 lantern oils. I have been getting pick axes and paperwork. I haven't been able to upgrade one time yet because I can't get lotus flowers. I have 2 lily pads and I think 4 or 5 stones I found in the newspaper and grabbed. I am aggravated with this event because I'm getting nowhere. lol

PookieBear50
04-27-15, 03:03 PM
Having trouble with the drop rate too, and I doubt I'll get the deer (would have been nice, but I'm resigned to not succeeding). What really has me curious is how some people can get so many of the parts from the newspaper, when I'm lucky to find one part every 20 times it cycles through. I'm more likely to come across maps and stuff than I am expansion parts, and given the scarcity of maps, that's saying something. Is there a specific time of day to go through the newspaper?

On another note, what do you think: is it worth it to buy a couple of extra lanterns just to keep around as decorations later, or no? If I could afford the one with the gems, I might be tempted, but the coin one seems a little bland to me. I'm asking because I kept a Ghost Trap from the Halloween event since it looked good and fit in with the decorations, and trees from the Christmas event (the Easter traps didn't, so I didn't keep any of those around).

Really wish some of the old Japanese decorations had been made available again for this event...

04-27-15, 04:43 PM
I feel like everyone else. The game should be a hobby, not consume your entire day. If you work and have things to take care of during your day, it is impossible. I never got the reindeer, although it is cute and would have liked to. I was saving up to get ice creamery but instead have spent a lot of coinage on lanterns. My drop rate seems to be one item for every ten orders or so. Also, it seems like the more I upgrade, the lower the drop rate becomes, giving the initial illusion that I could accomplish this. I don't want to spend all my coins buying items to fill orders, but things on higher levels take a long time to craft. I have seen several people who have their tree already upgraded. Not sure how they did it, but good for them. I just can't justify spending a lot of real money on fantasy. But, it would be nice to get and I am not against a couple bucks here or there. I just don't see this being a couple bucks!

orleansparish
04-27-15, 05:14 PM
It's possible to win without spending gems, you may not upgrade the tree to full capacity but can win. Many did it during the Xmas event and the drop rates on that, for me were much worse. I used to find more potions in the shop haven't the past two days. Or maybe I'm not checking in more?

I'm up to level 5 or 6 now on the tree. I could maybe do better but am bored with the event already, due to doing so ,any deliveries and getting few parts. Now I need 6 of each and can't see that happening in under a week without finding parts for sale.

So... I was fed up by sending plane deliveries to the point i decided to buy gems to upgrade my tree. I made my calculations and came up to the result of 384$... Now, who's the genius in TL who went to business school and decided that it was a nice marketing move to ask people to pay 400$ to upgrade a virtual tree on a virtual farm? My actual cats, real cats, real cats in real life, cost me less than 400$ per year... Long story short, i was about to buy gems, I'm not buying any now... Good job TL on managing your sales!!

same here. my main problem is with the lotus flower. I have more than enough stones and have enough lily pads for my next upgrade, but only one flower (a lucky find on someone's store). I think these games are designed to not be equal on all items to put you in a situation where you would consider paying for the rare items.

I will not make the deer, i don't care. I think I might be able to make the community & maybe the third individual goals. I think the final community prize is nice, but i can live without it to be honest. I think S8 were nice enough to make some of the easier prizes quality items though. The umbrellas are gorgeous, I can use the picnic as I have all my farm people gathered in my cherry grove :) and I absolutely love the bonsai cherry blossom! I saw a real bonsai sakura in Japan and they are sort of more scrawny IRL though.

Psst, don't give away all the secrets or there it will be harder to get lucky finds if everyone's doing it! :p To be honest, i did this with one of the earlier events (Thanksgiving) where I started late and managed to complete the both quest lines in 2 days! This time I just started last night and I have had a lot less luck. I just haven't been finding many items even spending a whole 3 hours just playing this game and shopping like made.

They should provide other ways to collect parts and blossoms. In other games (Castle Story and Dragon Story) you can craft the parts or you get parts for growing crops. This is clearly a money making scheme.
