I am looking for intel to decide what to do in last few days here: go for Swirlicorn or just do mystery trades in hope of Alicorn. I have been disappointed with sweet feast drops from armored maxotaur. Seems like Swirlicorn might be another one of those for me...
If you already have a lot of creatures in your realm with great drops then it may not impress you, but it is definitely better than the Maxotaur dropping nothing but iron and bacon. The Forest Maxotaur that I won for second place in the leaderboard at least guarantees a trade ticket each time, though I have earned a few feast items from him. Entirely up to you! Personally, I do not regret going for Swirly first as it helped me get ahead in the event. The baby skunkupine mystery prize is a waste unless you just want a pink baby skunk. It does not drop anything different than the ones you can craft in Ivys Nursery. Not even event coins.
EDITED TO ADD: Swirly also drops ice cream and syrup. So while you might not get a sweet feast often, she spits out those ingredients to get you there, at least!
Why do i not receive golden chocolat coins????
Why is this game not the same for everyone?????
