I know it was an error but I saw at first 900 gold cowbells for the pot, nope, but yeah it's just in coins. 26 days, too long, it's another pass for me. Good luck to those participating!

You set the trap by placing a gold coin in it.
In three hours you will collect random parts for upgrading your pot of gold or horseshoes or ?
Until players report what they receive ....
It is a one time use trap.
But it is a way to get rid of gold coins stored in the barn.

I went to the market to buy the lucky pot started to drag to my farm then looked and it was the trap for 50 gems �� I was so annoyed .
I had the lucky coins so put one in and collected after time had gone by and the trap disappeared. What a disastrous mistake to make .
To add insult to injury drops of upgrade parts are not very many either to upgrade lucky pot . So what is meant to be a lucky event has not been so lucky for me .
Happy St Patrick's Day !!!!! To everyone who are celebrating

This is the reason why I will skip this event.
I had tested if I could sell the event items. Can not.
We already had an event, where the sale of event items was made impossible. Everyone complained about how full the barn was. And now the same thing.
I do not want to have filled my Barn with event items for 26 days.
I am very glad that I "only" the gold pot for 900 coins have bought. More I will not invest for this event

If you don't want to participate in the event, don't do deliveries for 26 days, continue crafting items, feeding your animals and keep selling. That's what I do till a worthy event comes up.

What am I going to do with all these gold coins??? At least make that for sale! 2500 coins for traps is too expensive! I can't get rid of them...If your not going to allow us to share our items in this SOCIAL game, let us discard items. OR don't let them count in our barns!!!������

Strangely enough, I am admittedly a gem spender. I have received 0 coins, no need to buy a value pack or even just a leprechaun trap. I am 1 item short of items to upgrade to lvl 2. No gems spent yet. With 25 days, I have plenty of time to see how it all works out.

I don't think it was a mistake. The same thing happened to me. I dragged the Lucky Pot across to my farm and all of a sudden I had the trap and lost 50 gems!!!! What the!!!
I didn't want the trap. It took me forever to collect those gems and now I've lost them on a 'use once only' item.

I think it's a bug. Not a very lucky bug nor a very lucky thing to happen considering this should be a lucky event. :(

I can only imagine other people are going to have the same issue.

I think it may have happened when the event pop up asked me to buy the pot. When I closed the game and went back in and went to the Market to try and buy the pot again, this time I got the pot and not the trap. Hopefully this will save some people the same grief.

Good luck! ;)

To upgrade the pot to stage eight requires
10 of each upgrade item

And you will then receive 32 horseshoes every three hours

The trap for 50 gems is one time use also I accidentally got it whilst dragging the lucky pot to my farm put a coin in collected it and the trap disappeared ��
Can anybody say whether this was a bug 50 gems for a one time use is ridiculous. Took me ages to build up my gems too .

I totally agree 26 days takes us to April 13th which is the day before Good Friday.
St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow not 26 days from now ...

On the plus side, it gives us 26 days (well, >25 now) to upgrade the pot and acquire enough horseshoes to receive the grand prizes...plenty of time, hopefully. On the minus side, it seems as though the drop rate of the upgrade items is--for me, at least--considerably lower than previous events, so even one day in I haven't been able to upgrade once (no Celtic Knots have dropped for me yet).



WARNING - the leprechaun trap is SINGLE USE! For 2,500 gold coins you can only use it ONE TIME... That is crazy.

The 2,500 coins seems about right for this sort of event; I think it was the same cost for previous world event boosts.

I don't think the 50 gems is a bug: it might be higher than before, but I don't remember exactly...you might want to check the earlier event threads to see if the cost was the same. The deluxe trap is--theoretically--supposed to guarantee a better prize than the regular trap, but I can't recall exactly.

I didn't want to buy the trap . I was dragging the lucky pot to my farm when I put it down it appeared as a deluxe trap which I didn't want and wasted 50 gems . Looking on here it happened to a few people . Would we be able to get the gems back pls seeing that we didn't want it in the first place .
Thankyou

DragonManda
03-17-17, 11:02 PM
Yes, please please please give us the ability to sell the pot upgrade parts to one another. The thing that makes this game fun is when we can HELP each other upgrade and meet goals. I do enjoy these community events more than most of the other event types because we are all working together. However, in the past community events, we have been able to sell each other the upgrade parts. Even with it being a 26 day event, it will be ridiculously difficult to make progress if we can't buy and sell the upgrade parts as we have done in the past. Being able to sell the parts means that if one person has a shortage of the leprechaun flutes but an over abundance of the lucky stones or the Celtic knots, then we can make a trade with each other, and everyone will be more likely to have an enjoyable experience.

I spent real money on gems to purchase the trap for 50 gems, I know the 2500 coins versions only last once but to my horror, and surely this isn't right, my 50 gems trap has gone after one use!!! So I spent real money on just 2 parts, disgusting I'm fuming!!!

Did you put a gold coin in the trap...when you do you should then see a timer if you click on the trap.

pattypurr
03-18-17, 01:47 PM
Yes, I did that. I let it sit for four hrs (timer) then I used a coin, it took it, then restarted the clock. I got nothing, after using a coin on each trap!

That is weird because I buy a trap ...put a gold coin in then when I retouch trap after timer done it just pops up and says what I have won...then the trap disappears because they are one time use only.

At least with the summer tiki event we could sell items. I've sent deliveries all day yesterday and today and still my pot is only level 7 and I can't get the Celtic knot upgrade part for anything have 30 of each of the other ones though would love to be able to sell them and the coins have 40+ of those

kindefarm1890
03-18-17, 05:42 PM
I think I am going to have to bow out of this event. I sent 45 plane deliveries so far today and received only 2 upgrade parts although I did receive 18 lucky coins. Generally I would sell the lucky coins but this event forces us to use them. I use the coins and set all 18 traps. Of the 16 traps that I collected from so far I received 1 upgrade part and 2-10 horseshoes from the other 15 traps. Currently the my Pot of Gold is at level 3. If I only receive 3 upgrade parts, on a day that I sent more deliveries than normal, I will never be able to upgrade to a level that I can collect enough horseshoes to win the pets.

It's time to work on making items to sell to get back the coins I used on the traps. Good luck to everyone who are working on getting the pets.

I'm disappointed the goal rewards (for upgrading) are just coins and xps, and no little decorations. I already have the paint skins for the buildings from last year but would like some more clover pots and that kind of thing to decorate with. I don't think the end goal of the dogs will be enough hold my interest/effort for 26 days. Too long an event and too little incentive along the way.

I agree almost completely. I don't have paint for my buildings but, since the holiday is over, I have little use for the new skins. I will only use the dogs St Patrick's next year. I will upgrade the pot, because if I don't, my barn will explode. I do like the gazebo but, as the only desirable thing to me for the event, not sure if it will hold my interest for a month.. I guess only time will tell

Hi not sure what your problem is as not sure which message you replied too.

So am addressing the selling of event items.
This is not the first event that we have been unable to sell parts....the game is a business and there is a package for sale with parts so basically if every player was buying from their neighbours and/or the newspaper then no one would buy the package for sale.
It is likely easier for players that are a higher level in the sense that their barns are a lot bigger and after playing for years coins are not an issue like when one first starts playing. I am happy that we can buy leprechaun traps for coins in this event and thus use the gold coins received from deliveries in them...
The event items and gold coins only drop from plane deliveries so if someone does not want to participate in the event then don't send plane deliveries until the event ends.
I myself think the gold pot is a very cute decoration and why not upgrade it a few levels if you collect 500 horseshoes you are eligible to receive the three community prizes...the gazebo is really cute.

As for plane deliveries if I can't find the item in a few minutes in neighbours stores or the paper I delete the order and wait for a new one...with eight delivery spots usually I have one to fly.

If I see someone selling something I am often asked for but in a quantity of ten I buy and sell half off.

You need a good active neighbour base ... if I buy something from the paper I immediately visit that farm and check out their store...if store is full I immediately check to see if they have the auto add feature turned on and I add them. If it isn't on I leave a message on their wall and click on some hearts so this way they know you were there.

Unfortunately the only way to get them out of your barn now is to buy leprechaun traps.
Bonus is the traps give event items or gold horseshoes.

At the end of the event you will be able to discard them.

We need to be able to dump the gold coins at least. I have 16 ATM clogging up my barn on top of event items to upgrade the pot. It's too much and I can't afford to keep buying traps to get rid of the gold coins. This is stupid planning and frustrating I spend money in this game but this is turning me off.

Unfortunately the only way to get them out of your barn now is to buy leprechaun traps.
Bonus is the traps give event items or gold horseshoes.

At the end of the event you will be able to discard them.

I dont have money for those, i just spent it all on a building
I have just over 20 coins now and really struggling for space, i keep going between 1 and 3 spaces in my barn usually, hoping i can get lucky and find land deeds then i can use some of the expansion permits and old maps i have and have barn space for a while

I want to do this event but if i dont have space then i cant get items for deliveries and if i can do deliveries then theres no way to continue :(

I can understand them not letting us share the upgrade parts but let us ditch the coins at least or maybe just let us discard unwanted event items then ppl not taking part can do deliveries for the month too




I'm disappointed the goal rewards (for upgrading) are just coins and xps, and no little decorations. I already have the paint skins for the buildings from last year but would like some more clover pots and that kind of thing to decorate with. I don't think the end goal of the dogs will be enough hold my interest/effort for 26 days. Too long an event and too little incentive along the way.

The picture on the goal has a st patricks day goat skin so maybe if we can fully build the pot we'll get that, with the requirements im not sure many will achieve it though

I too got caught out with buying the pot to only end up with a trap costing 50 gems. I know my finger was on the pot to buy ... not fair especially hearing that it happened to so many others.

I can understand that as a company that has paid employees, Storm 8 needs to make money. I understand and support that. I choose to play this gAme as a free play. On my original farm, I bought gems for something once. One time only, so the company is not making money off my purchases.

Saying that, you would think that a company would learn from their mistakes. Aka the non-ability to clear/dump/delete quest parts from our barns. Yes, they allow us to buy traps at 2500 each. But that is using valuable coins a lot of players do not have. So a lot of people I know have learned from their mistakes and are just not sending deliveries for the quest period of 25 days. But how can the powers that be "forget" the outrage at the full barns from the other quest. I know I sure didn't!

So don't send deliveries if you don't want a full barn!

I also find I am more engaged in this game when a quest gives my neighbours and I a common goal and we can help each other achieve the quests, as opposed to this one where I am playing alone or the ones where I have to compete AGAINST players.

I agree with everyone. Making deliveries is essential toward advancing, but being able to hold upgrade parts and delivery items makes things ridicoulously hard even if you are a higher level. I played nearly constantly just sending deliveries, upgrading, and buying traps all weekend..now I have stopped. My goal was to get the skins for next year. I don't want a waterfall nor more dogs and I can't play normally until this ends as my barn fills up with parts and coins I don't want or need. All I do now is craft and sell until this event is over. An option to store, sell, or discard event items would have everyone enjoying the event. Worrying about filling up your barn and having to spend coins to empty gold coins is making this hard on lower level players. I feel like Storm 8 is payoing little attention to this game which is a money maker for them. Why wait and start a St. Pat Event that lasts weeks beyond the holiday...should have started spring or Easter event! Godd luck all..

Would be great beings they don't want to have the items placed in the stores that there was another option..
Like have a garbage truck call 1-800-delete-event-items for sale for coins.
We could buy this truck and it could be a cute pickup or event item that goes with the holidays like last year's Easter pickup...etc
It would be used to delete event items.

Why are all the gold coins stacked up in my barn and why can't i sell or discard them?? Truly disappointing if you ask me.
I ain't gonna spend my money on those traps and ain't gonna spend my gems on upgrading my barn!!
Only for that i'm going to skip this event which goes untill 3 weeks AFTER St' Patricks day.
3 weeks without deliveries is the only solution i can come up with to avoid these annoying coins.
Anybody got any other ideas??

This type of event has always been my favorite. But this particular event is different from the ones in the past. You are unable to sell upgrade parts or the gold coins. I made ten deliveries and received eight gold coins and zero upgrade parts. This is a long event and my barn will not be able to hold all these parts. Unfortunately I am having to stop doing any deliveries until this event is over. This makes me sad.

This game might be a "business", but there are businesses that act in good faith toward their customers and I'm wondering if that's the case here. I am one of apparently many that had 50 gems taken from their account through NOT purchasing the leprechaun trap.

Over the years that I've played, I've been annoyed once every few months by hitting the wrong thing at the wrong time; I've made my peace that there is no confirmation button to spend gems, and have learned to be very careful. Seeing the pot of gold and trap close together in new items, I was very careful to only touch the pot of gold. After a substantial lag, I was the proud owner of a trap and not the pot of gold.

To make it worse, this trap (good name for it by the way) is 1 time use and gave me 25 horseshoes for my 50 gems. That's a deluxe trap? I could have earned that the first day.

I am not surprised that these "bugs" never work in the player's favor; but I have reached my point. My original goal was to reach level 60, but now just a few hundred points from level 50, I think that is where I should stop.

The way I see it you owe me 50 gems, and you are welcome to take back the 25 horseshoes you gave for using it.

I see a lot of addressing the issue of barn space and not selling the items and no response to those that had their gems taken through only taking the time to play your event.

Hopefully, somebody there will get a good night's sleep on this and realize what is the right thing to do.

Well poo. I was so happy to see I could get some of those coins out of my barn but if no one who wants them can buy them then what's the point?

People who want to spend money and gems will do so regardless if we can sell parts or not. People who don't want to spend money or gems won't change their minds because we can't sell parts. So just let us sell the stupid parts!! They stress the community aspect but don't allow us to work as a community? :(

When I visit my baby farm, where I put a Celtic knot for sale, from my big farm, the spot where said knot should be is blank. When I go to baby farm to sell something in that spot, Celtic knot is still there - so I can't sell anything else. I have been given the option to delete it now, so I suppose that at least is progress. So much for being a community game where we are helping our neighbors - which should be what this game is all about, especially during this event which is a " community" event. I'm very disappointed that those who choose not to participate in events can't help those who do want to participate. I can't feed all the pets I have and would love to be able to help someone at a lower level earn a pet for their farm, sadly that's not an option.

What a surprise to find last night that there were upgrade parts in the newspaper. I thought that the team finally did the right thing and fixed things so players who didn't want the upgrade parts could sell them to those who did. Later on in the evening I noticed that there were no longer any parts in the newspaper so I checked here just to find out that we can no longer buy them. So the team teased us for a little while where I thought maybe I could make up for lost time by buying the upgrade parts. Well shame on me for falling for their trick. I like playing this game because the community helps out each other but the team seems to think we should play this alone.

Storm8 - You set this event up where we need to make deliveries to obtian upgrade parts. Well where are the upgrade parts? The drop rate so far is 1 upgrade part for every 25 deliveries. So far the only upgrade parts available are the ones you can buy for $5. Not acceptable when you need hundreds of parts to upgrade the pot of gold. This is listed as a community event but for the most part we play alone and the community cannot help out other players. I have spent a lot of real money on this game but with the change in how the events are played and the beat up your neighbor leaderboard events I will have to put this on hold. I understand that developers do not work for free but you are hurting yourself when so many long time players are gettng frustrated and dropping out of the game.

Nope, we cant buy upgrade parts. The intent of this change is to let us have the ability to discard those items to help us with limited precious barn space. You can let them stay in your shop if you dont mind waiting or you can discard them and free the slot. Personally I have been discarding mine.

I wasn't going to say anything on this thread, but I agree. I could understand if we weren't allowed to sell each other upgrade parts for events like last year's Halloween quest and the Artic Fox event (except, if I recollect correctly, we COULD sell each upgrade parts in both). This being a "World Event" with "Community Prizes", one would think it means players should work together, including selling each other parts needed to upgrade and in doing so contribute to the community.

Please pardon me for saying this, but I vaguely recollect that in prior World Events--e.g., last year's Spring World Event and the Summer Tiki Event and several before that--I was able to purchase upgrade parts from the Newspaper and neighbors' Side Shops. Perhaps I am mistaken, but if I am not, I have to wonder why there was a change this time.

I think you're right. I do remember other events where we were able to buy upgrade parts - I had some awesome neighbors who sold me their extras. I'm glad that we can sell our parts (for me, I'm glad to get rid of the coins), but it would help tons if we were able to buy them too, like we were in the past. At the rate I'm collecting upgrade parts, I probably won't get very far with this event. Oh well, hopefully the next event is different or I have better luck. Good luck to everyone participating!

You are so right PookieBear and I have proof too (see attached pics), we could help neighbors with many previous events. I remember my first ever world event, it was Christmas 2015 and I was so excited, I thought it was so cool to be able to help other and work together, NO MOBILE GAME I had ever played before had that and it was a breath of fresh air. I love setting up my shop all pretty with all the cute new stuff and being able to help neighbors at the same and vice versa... it added a scavenger hunt feeling to the game... now it's so sad, many of my friends have left this game. I don't enjoy the farm when there isn't an event because most of the non-event recipes I find so ugly and that being said, I don't enjoy being put through the ringer for an event, it's a farm game for goodness sakes! They need to consider their demographic a little more...I keep hoping that they will go back to their beginnings but, I am also getting tired of holding my breath...

The last stage requires 50 of each part! If I get one part for every 5 deliveries (which is generous) and they are evenly distributed, that means it will take 750 deliveries just to get from stage 14 to 15! I rarely get parts from the traps and have already spent well over 100,000 coins on them!

Doesn't seem realistic to get the pot fully upgraded!

I dont think i have a chance to get the pot to lvl 15 but ill get it as high as i can then collect as much as possible, would be cool to get it fully upgraded but i dont have 150 spaces to use for event items unless i can even out my upgtade or expansion items and use some as theres no way ill just sell them

After 2 and a half days of waiting for a single flute to upgrade my Lucky Pot I caved and bought the value pack that had 3 of each part and the 5 deluxe traps, which promised "even more lucky pot supplies". I set all 5 traps and received a grand total of ZERO lucky pot supplies. None at all. I did get 130 gold horseshoes (30, 30, 15, 25, and 30) but I really wanted parts. I had one delivery last night that gave me a pickaxe, a saw, and a map. If they can give me 3 parts for one delivery why can't at least one of them be an upgrade part?

This "community" event is not fun and way too long. :(

This event doesn't make sense to me. It's a community event. We all have to participate to get the community decorations but we can't help each other with building the pot of gold in order to get the horseshoes to get the prize which seems like it's the goal,no?? With all the deliveries I've sent and the coins that used buying the traps, I'm still stuck on level 10.

This type of event used to be my favorite event, but now I'm giving up. I'm a working professional who cannot spend all day sending deliveries so I counted on my nbrs to help me. Without being able to sell parts to each other, this is not an event I can partake in. I've sent countless deliveries only to see that you need a ridiculous amount for the higher levels. I'm done.

We should be able to help each other. I can't get beyond stage 5. Missing essential parts. I don't buy things - but I have introduced game to many people who do spend real money.

I have to agree with the sentiment that this community event has nothing to do with community as we are no longer able to sell the upgrade parts to our neighbors, like we used to be able to do in previous ones. I've been on this farm 893 days and I'm finding it hard to enjoy the events anymore. I understand that Storm 8 needs to make money but sadly the game is loosing it's appeal as the events have become far too time consuming and there is no sense of community anymore.

Anyone else notice that the number of horse shoes from leprechaun traps has reduced? I used to get 8-14, then 6 and now only 2! What is the point of that

I was about to make the same comment. 2500 coins for 2 or 3 horseshoes? Really?

about 1100 horseshoes. no way i could reach the last individual prize , but i don't care since i already have over 60 pets
but i agree with everyone : events are less and less do-able .
i keep playing FS2 but i'm doing less and less events

Are the upgrade parts available for sale now? I just placed 8 fluted in my shop and there is a "limited time" clock icon in the corner of the picture. Hopefully!

You can put them in your shop but others cant buy them im afraid, theres a discard option once theyre in your shop so its just a way to ditch unwanted items
Im pretty sure the clock is just a new way to show its an event only item

You're correct, the items with the clock icon are available during event. :)

Does anyone know if we upgrade the lucky pot to the end, is the pot collectible like pot of gold?

The Lucky Pot turns into and remains as a decoration after the event. Sorry...

Without being able to help each other with excess upgrade parts, I'm afraid we aren't even going to be close to finishing it. And that is the same reason many have chosen not to participate in this event - it's really sad for a community event, when in the past we've been helping each other and this time we can't. I hope TL hears us and changes it back to allowing us to help one another in future events! And I'm buying as many traps as I can - with over 6 million coins in my bank I can buy traps - but now my shipments quit dropping coins to use - nice work TL!

I'll make it to 2,500 tomorrow, but I doubt I'll be able to get to 4,200 without a stupendous miracle. If others are having as much difficulty upgrading their pots because they--like me--are experiencing poor drop rates of ONE upgrade part, then my thought is that 250,000,000 is out of reach. Short of TL upping the drop rate drastically or allowing us to sell to and BUY parts from each other, this is one global event that won't have a happy ending.

If this is typical of past events, I think Storm8 has the horseshoes earned by all is on track to complete the goal. Take a snapshot and then check again in an hour or two and do the math again.

Im the same, ill make it to 2500 but 4200 was never gonna happen
I may just about get my pot to lvl 10 before the event ends, im wondering if it looks any different between lvl 9 and 10

This event is impossible, I cannot upgrade the pot anymore as hardly ever get parts and this level I have got to wants 17 of each so I'm only getting 32 horse shoes from the pot, it's ridiculous, how is a working person supposed to get a chance with these events, this game is getting annoying instead of enjoyable, this event is too long and too hard!

Yeah, i used to only be able to fully upgrade my event "building" via intense use of the marketplace. it's pretty much impossible without help from others, unless you gem your way. I guess S8 do need their money. I've committed to not reaching the final milestone, am happy to just make the community prize cut off. The final community prize isn't all that great either so not to concerned if we do not make it. Does seem a shame that they spent all that design time on something nobody will get to have, but I guess giving stuff away for "free" is not great business either.

Something strange just happened to my pot. I just collected from a pot on another device, and now there's a construction tent around it and it will be under construction for 30 minutes! When I collected on this device that didn't happen.

Is your time setting on the device with issue set to automatic? Please do so if it isn't. Hopefully this will help.

I hope we'll get the last Community prize since it's something new and free. It'll be a waste if we the Community didn't get it because we gave up collecting... Well I'm still collecting and adding my contribution. It's up to our combined efforts to get it. Keep going. :)

I am not going to be able to get the 2500 horseshoes prize. I am not particularly intereseted in the gazebo either, so I am not collecting more horseshoes.

I would guess that even if we don't quite collect enough horseshoes to get the last community prize, that maybe the game developers would give it to the people who had qualified for community prizes anyway. Otherwise, it would have been a waste for them to design the new item. They could just go ahead and send one to everyone's storage once the event has ended. Does anyone know if there has ever been a time when the community did not receive the last community prize?

kirsty050
04-07-17, 05:47 PM
Theyre not just gonna give it to us, if we dont earn it it'll probs be rereleased to be purchased with gems at some point

Im still collecting as why wouldnt i, it takes 1 click when i go in game n we might make it to the gazebo

So not happy right now. For the second time I attempted to drag the regular leprechaun trap onto my form, only to have the deluxe trap appear, costing me 50 gems. I really did NOT want that, but what's done is done and I'm not going to send anything in to TL (probably wouldn't change anything and it's the weekend anyway).

BUT...

This wouldn't have happened if it were possible to drag items from the Buy menu WITHOUT having to drag sideways over other items. Trying to drag up or down results in the whole menu moving...dragging to the right fails because there's not enough space...which only leaves dragging left, which is fine for items on the left-hand side of the menu, but not from the right-hand side.

Would TL and the game programmers PLEASE add in a verification step so that we don't spend gems unexpectedly and accidentally? I had a use for those 50 gems--specifically speeding up the pot to maybe get to 4200 horseshoes--but now I need to think carefully about whether I'm willing to spend what gems I still have.

Hi all :),
I'm also still collecting Golden Horseshoes towards the Community prize. There are farmers, who love to get the Gazebo.
And like Kirsty said: it's just 1 click when you are on your farm :D

I think we can still make it. Perhaps in the last minutes but WE CAN :D

Hello everyone! I came here to say that I too have unwillingly spent 50 gems on the deluxe trap. It was the first day of the event and I selected the pot of gold. I dragged the pot over (it was clearly the pot) and when I dropped it it disappeared and changed to the deluxe trap. There went 50 gems that I spent so much time earning. I was so disappointed because clearly it was a glitch. I've made mistakes in the past, but now I always double check the item before I drop it. That experience made me afraid to purchase the trap for coins. I didn't want to lose another 50 gems. It was inconveniently place right next to the deluxe trap and to the right so you have to drag over it. I decided not to take the chance.

I just wanted to give some feedback and share my experience. I'm not asking for my gems back, I would like it if the events were designed better to prevent this from happening in the future.

I'm still collecting horseshoes and sending plane deliveries. I've been doing nothing but plane deliveries since the event started, but I get very few parts. I've only been able to upgrade my pot to stage 6! I appreciate a challenge, but I guess this was impossible for my farm to achieve. I don't know what else I could have done.

PookieBear50

Managed to get 4200 horseshoes, but it wasn't easy, and it cost me about 44 gems (144, if you count the two deluxe gem traps that got abruptly placed despite my attempting to drag over the regular traps), shaving off 1 hour (or a little less) off of collection times over the past two days.

Glad I finished, but still a bit put out by the added cost of those 100 gems...

While I can understand why S8 are making the Pot upgrade parts not buyable in the marketplace, I don't think I like how they've done it. I noticed that there's more frequent instances of items being marked as already bought when my newspaper refreshes! It got worse towards the end of the event. This behavior coincides with when people start dumping useless parts onto the market at the end of the event. So it seems that rather than just sweeping all items off the stands, they're just setting them as bought if they ever show up in a newspaper. It seems that this then deprives people of a couple of newspaper slots, at a time when some might be looking to the market to buy what they need to complete deliveries.

Yippee, WE MADE IT!! :D Congrats Farm 2 Community, our combined efforts paid off! :D:D

P.S. Out of pure curiosity, I wonder how many of us managed to complete this event and get the Lucky Setters. So I've added a poll for you to vote.

I have to admit that I probably spent over 100,000 in coins to buy and use Leprechaun traps (hard to tell, exactly, since I kept waiting until I earned 10,000 more coins before buying 4 more traps), and maybe another 10,000 coins also on buying items from the Newsstand and neighbors' shops to fulfill orders in hopes of getting upgrade parts. And the 144 gems that went towards buying (unwillingly) 2 Deluxe Leprechaun traps and speeding up the Pot towards the end.

Though I'm sure some spent a lot more than I did.

I think I've spent about 200,000 coins or more for traps alone, I lost count midway. Sorry to hear about your gems though :( (personally I would try Support but I respect your decision). I didn't upgrade my Lucky Pot to max. My aim was to get the Rainbow Pot of Gold but I got the Lucky Setters while collecting for the community so that's an added bonus for me.

I know I spent around 200,000 coins buying traps - along with 100 accidental gems - for the same reason stated by others: location, location, location. I was buying 6, 8, or 10 traps at a time. I was only trying to upgrade my pot - and was unsuccessful in that endeavor, but I got the setters, and don't even want to put them out - I have so many pets - I was just trying for the community prizes. I hope the next event is a true community event where the community can help one another. Please, storm8, pretty please, with sugar on it!!!!
