    Sounds about right for me also, but on three games and still haven't won her on any of them. Soooooo annoying. I spend a small fortune on this game and never win the special prizes. I am done trying. No more money being spent either

    When you think about sending out 30 adventures and getting 1 Seyndia...only 1. Yet there are other players who just happen to get the luck of the draw who send out 1 adventure and get the same Seyndia. And some who may send out less than 30 adventures and get a second Seyndia...or a third...a fourth...a fifth...a sixth. I'm happy for those who won her and for those who won her multiple times, but it's really frustrating for the rest of us.

    Alas, energy has nothing to do with it I suspect. If that faerie isn't yours to have, a million energy won't get her for you.

    Not looking for sympathy, just fairness. I have been a lower level player and am lucky enough to have accumulated a flock of alicorns after playing the game for over six years, but I am not sure what that has to do with chance drop rates.

    Honestly I'm not trying to bash anyone, but I'm still trying to understand the statement "....the number of adventures we send out the greater our CHANCES of getting the rare prize. Well yeah. That's pretty obvious.
    I'll go back and read it again to see what I missed.

    After playing the last adventure I have given up on Seyndia. S8 can you please remove those sweet pollen and butterflies that are now in my inventory but not needing it. It cost a lot of energy. Luckily I got the 2 others now. Good luck anyone who is still trying

    Sorry to hear how disheartened you are. I posted very early on that I use my saved energy to chop the blooms I need. For the event and ONLY do the number of adventures that allows, it was 8 I think, maybe 9, for this event. I joked about crushing my dreams of the Big Prize early on so I can focus on the rest of the event... I was half joking. : ) given that it can take 30 adventures and thousands and thousands of energy, it's an individual decision if it it worth it or not. For people that got Seyndia early through luck or squeezed her out through throwing resource after resource, I am truly happy for them!

    I didn't finish the first time the event went from 750 to 1000. Again, my choice to adjust my play. I have work that about half the time allows me to dip in for two minutes every couple of hours, other days, not so much.

    For me, it is a combination of realistic expectations based on accepting the probabilities, absolute adoring this forum (yay you and all of us!), and th game - the animation, the artwork, the overarching storyline, the pleasure of accumulating energy and also of hitting many unofficial goals that I keep forgetting to post. And The pleasure of building something over time, and of decorating, esp w unicorns. : ) LOVE the unicorns. And faeries. I even have a unicorn lunch box for salads now. I do spend cash on the game too; more for fun now than super strategising.

    If on gets a few gems on sale now and again, the Ivy butterfly costs 20 gems in the workshop. May or may not be a huge investment to spend 40 gems to save a day of Ivy collections to get to the 25 butterflies L6 that makes it easier to get the 1000. Yes, in my opinion S8 is a little money grubbing, very unnecessarily and I think they would make more with a different, more player friendly strategy. But I don't work there, and I do love the game for what it is.

    Hope that helps.
    Nymeria is kingdom name, WishTheyWereReal, esp the unicorns! Huge thanks to people who contribute to the forum.

    Add me to the group of people exhausting their hoard of golden nuggets and spending lots of energy to chop blooms in the unsuccessful attempt to find Seyndia. I’ll get the other two fairies. I’m just kicking myself for continuing to go on these adventures. The last event that had this random drop from adventures was another event where I spent lots of resources going on fruitless adventures. You would think I would learn...Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me! At least the blooms drop some other useful stuff.

    I got 8 this morning. I think you can compare Monalises droppings (&#128521 to those of a purple Alicorn.

    Wish me luck, I am going on my last adventure for this event (considering the time left). Positive thoughts... 🙄

    MONALISE IS FRIGGING AWESOME!!

    Sorry for the caps, but had to be said. She's an energy dropper (and not just 2 energy either) with an 8-hour timer!! How great is that? We've never had that before as far as I know.

    I got to level 6 last Friday without spending a single gem and with no stored energy. Yes, I got a few yellow butterflies from adventures which definitely helped. No Seyndia, though. And you know what? I don't really care. She's only a coin dropper and I'm not really interested in a 3x3 pond (too large!) no matter how pretty.
    I also got Peridae without much trouble, so I'm really happy with this low energy event.
