    After trying out 10 to 20 of each type of rock, I concluded that they eventually all drop an average of between 6 to 10 Red Bricks every 20 chops, and so I just stuck to breakdown Rock Outcroppings. Maybe luck was with me, but I did manage to get a Gold Nugget once every 6 - 8 Rock Outcroppings I cleared.

    As for the Cottages, I only have 16 of them, so I have them all out to maximize my chances of encountering the Cyclonicians and also make the best of their long recycle time. I find it more "profitable" to wait 4 hours for 16 Cottages to recover than 4 hours for a handful of 3 to 4 Cottages.

    BTW, I didn't notice anyone else doing it, so let me be the first to praise the S8 graphic artists and animators for the fantastic work they did on the Cyclonicians

    I really love the way the look and move and the tiny cyclones they throw out when they attack.

    Keep up the fine work

    I love the rewards for this event, they look fantastic but the energy needed to complete this is ludicrous. The lightening bricks... ugh. Unless you’ve got money to burn or are retired or don’t need to sleep you’re not finishing this event. We don’t all have hundreds of energy sources. I spend plenty of money across the board on all the S8 games I play, this Spring sale cleaned me out so I do more than my share of supporting this company but I draw the line at having to use gems to complete EVERY event. Once in a while I don’t mind gemming it here or there. These energy guzzling tasks are so disappointing. Do better S8.

    The banner said they would "be available during the event" and "would drop the items shown" which are event items only. I think they meant, here are some excited NEW monsters we haven't seen before, not pets that would drop stuff.....

    but who knows, with "the baby is happy to see his Mama" and "it's a Male Storm Manticorn" and "pet her to see what she drops" I think S8 is fairly confused right now hahaha

    Still need about 24 bricks and I just decided to quit. With 3 days left to play (due to real life) I doubt I'll make it. I could use up all my stored energy (crates and crafts), but then I still might not make it. No use stressing out over this.

    I too have been wondering where they are,and you are right....it says" new and exciting electric animals are available in the MARKET for a limited time only". The 2 animals we get are rewards and were not in market soooo ???

    Not wanting to keep this going but I am very literal with language and the banner said "available in the market" . The words Market and Event are very different in terms of setting our expectations !
