    I have had four drops from Robot Phoenix and each time I have only received wood...no gears, nothing else. Waste of gems.

    Collected from all 7 robots, got 0 old gears. Zero. S8, this is too open forcing us to buy the robot foenix.
    Positive: like the visual designs and the funny flying raccoon, great graphics.

    The Robot Phoenix itself does not drop event items, it's just a booster. Purchasing the pet is meant to increase your odds of getting those drops elsewhere for the duration of the event.

    You should be fine leaving the Monkey parked as it is.

    Goal 7 is to visit a Sparkling Mine so simply tapping on it will complete the goal. Goal 8 is when you need to slay the Flying Monkey in order to complete the goal. I wouldn't worry too much about it either way, you'll have plenty of time to find a monkey to fight during the goal since the Flying Wings take 2 Hours to craft.

    The thing that gets me is that in Goal 8 we're only tasked to craft 3 Flying Wings to complete the goal. But then in Goal 9 we have to craft 2 Flying Pigs which require 4 Flying Wings each. So many Old Gears needed!

    The gear drops rate from robot is abysmal. I'd rather have guaranteed drop and robots with longer timer. I just found myself making spellbound blocks and beams in my workshops mid event, because I can't get gears to craft event items.
    This event has quickly turned from fun to dreadful. I dread having to log in every 1.5 hr everyday for the next 2 weeks. I can see lots of folks not able to complete the event because of this ridiculous drop rate.

    After visiting the Sparkling mine, you have to build wings.

    Yes. This is going to be an arduous one.

    Last night I collected from both mines and a sawmill and got a monkey spawn from each one. I was not at the goal yet but was collecting because I needed supplies. Now I’m at the goal where I actually need to spawn one and I’m 0/4.

    You and me, both! I'm on Goal 9 right now and the Old Gears needed is a real stumbling block. I'm tired and was busy at the start of the goal so I wasn't really paying attention to the details of what was needed up until now. Sitting down and really looking at the requirements... it is not painting a pretty picture! Each pig requires a total of 4 Flying Wings made up of 3 of each Industrial craft. That's a total of 48 Old Gears per Pig - 96 in total!

    I know that it's very early in the event and that we have plenty of time, but I'm not the type who enjoys a task that gets dragged out unnecessarily. If I don't feel like my time and efforts are moving my progress forward sufficiently, I'll drop this event rather than suffer through the boredom and frustration of waiting for unreliable drops. I don't know if they think putting these awful drops into an event will motivate players to use gems or what but I do know it's having the opposite reaction on me. I'll give it another day or so but if things don't start normalizing with the Gear drops, I'll sit this one out.

    Well, your lucky I have only recieved COINS! I am ticked! And if it is a booster it hasn't helped. No gears for two collections from all 7 robots.
