    I hope she wins too!!! : )

    I saw bacon and coins. I probably am maxed out on everything else it drops...at least I hope so! I see Max heading very quickly to storage shortly. I'm just keeping him out to see if anyone reports any magnificent drops...like a trade ticket, energy, mithril or some such wonderful thing.

    Armoured definitely for reasons already enumerated.

    I am currently in 20th place this time around, this company lost business over a puppet. Sure am glad they played hardball because it was that important for them not to give puppets! Ha!
    Lol..I didn't even realise I could have gotten a second baron puppet. I did a couple adventures, got one on the first Adventure I sent out and was just happy I had received "it". 😂 I haven't had anything spectacular from it though..no cabbages at all... so don't feel too bad you missed out. He's heading to storage soon.

    To share w all: spoke w my maths PhD hubby last night about the armoured direwolves and the wizard portals. His lateral thinking perspective on it was that with gold troll tokens at 50 gems each, two purchased gold tokens is equivalent to a daily alicorn on sale. The gem cost of 85 gold tokens is therefore the gem equivalent of 42.5 daily alicorns. The *energy* yield of a new WP is about two daily alicorns, fully upgraded two more. Not good gem value. Direwolves equivalent harder to calculate as my experience is is drops 20 energy almost exclusively for me and other players are luckier w that guy. One daily alicorn more than covers it for me. It is a lot easier to make a reduced price purchase with gems bought on sale. Ergo, the only reason to do the WP or armoured direwolf is for the fun of it. Fun is worth it, and it is subjective, whilst the maths bit is objective. One isn't better than the other.

    When I have gazillions of energy saved, it might be inspiringly fun or feel pointless to craft them, impossible to tell from here. For now, after crafting our warrior who cooks feasts (great combo) and the rest of my allowed lions, I prefer to restock for trades and then save a bit of energy for the next event.

    I will probably wind up crafting the allotment of flyers as well; the expansion permit drops are poor but still exist, and every little bit helps, as a supermarket ad here says. But I won't push for it, yet. : )

    I really really hope we get a WW at the end of this as well!
    Fascinating. I guess I built the WP for fun plus I really like the look of them. And there isn't anything else that I want right now. I never equated gold tokens to gems because I would never use gems to buy a gold token. And for now I'm on the no more spending real money stance, (got mad at seemingly drop manipulation) I just do what I can and want.
    I love the math analysis.
    Kudos to your guy that would take the time to do this for you.

    To stay on topic: I am now ranked 15. I'm not buying any package deals. I will use a boost later to cash in on my crafts.

    I know what you mean.... I am at 2302 and holding. I would like to craft another 14 gold tokens before maxing but I'd rather wait until a few people pass me and leave me in the dust before trying for any more. As I mentioned I really don't need energy animals so I'd rather my competitors get it and then I will go back to just replenishing coins. I have even parked a beast for now :0

    First collection from the Armored Maxotaur was a sweet feast--yippee! I'm maxed on other feasts (and almost on sweet), so I'm glad my first wasn't a black flag.

And I didn't start until this morning, because I had a weekend getaway with my husband and didn't want to be playing CS. So, while I am tempted to get the owl from the Baron's Tent this month, and the LB prize which will probably also be energy, part of me is meh about it.

    That being said, I already have the 2 WP's and 4 AD's... but if I were to do it all over again I am not so sure I would.
    You're not sure you would go for the direwolves at all or all 4 direwolves ? or even one of the portals?

    I have all forms of fire wolves, flygers, portals, armored lions and armored bears. I have one siren and I don't need more because I finished all the mermaid quests. I think all that's left are glimmer dragon and glimmer alicorns. If I'd started earlier I could get another cabbage hut but then I'm trying to replenish even more. I'm guessing I'm not the only one in this position because I've only been playing 4 years and others have been a lot longer.
